Bombshell: The Anthrax Killers Identified

I believed early on that the anthrax attackers were al Qaeda. The only question was where did they get it. Now the truth is finally coming out. And according to this credible source, the FBI covered it up. Not only that but they drove an innocent man to kill himself. I am not saying that I believe this account completely. But there should be a public hearing organized by a special Congressional committee. Much like the Warren Commission or the United States House of Representatives Select Committee on Assassinations (HSCA). We need to know the truth. The ball is in your court, President Obama.

There's a gaping hole in the FBI's argument that U.S. Government scientist Bruce Ivins was the anthrax mailer.

In addition to the 100 scientists with access to virulent anthrax from Ivins's flask whom the FBI claims to have ruled out, one unauthorized individual had a special kind of access-the kind you get when you steal something. Hovering in proximity to an unlocked refrigerator with the anthrax at George Mason University was Islamic ideologue Ali al-Timimi, who in early 2001 was studying for a Ph.D in computational biology. Al-Timimi has since been arrested and sentenced for inciting Muslims in Virginia to travel to Pakistan to fight against U.S. forces.

Al-Timimi's office was right around the corner from the offices of Charles Bailey and Ken Alibek, co-principal investigators on a Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA)-funded anthrax project. Bailey was a former deputy commander of USAMRIID at Fort Detrick, Maryland, where he had been a boss of Bruce Ivins. Alibek was the former deputy director of the Soviet biowarfare program. Bailey and Alibek had partnered on a patent application for a method of preparing anthrax that would closely resemble the sophisticated preparation in the letters mailed to Senators Daschle and Leahy. the full article appearing in Accuracy in Media

Nevada Tea Party Candidate Facing Felony Charges

The Tea Partyers seem to have trouble differentiating themselves from the corrupt Republicans they are trying to replace:

A Nevada asphalt contractor who faces a legal challenge to his Tea Party of Nevada candidacy for U.S. Senate was hit Friday with felony theft and bad check charges in Las Vegas that allege he bounced a $5,000 business check last year.

Scott Ashjian is one of a record 22 candidates, including 12 Republicans, running for the seat held by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, who is seeking a fifth term.

Bernie Zadrowski, head of the Clark County district attorney's office bad check unit, said he would seek an arrest warrant Monday in Las Vegas Justice Court. Ashjian could face up to 14 years in state prison if convicted.

Bullet mailed to Italian PM Berlusconi

Bullet mailed to Italian PM Berlusconi

Italy's postal service intercepted a threatening letter containing a bullet addressed to Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, while letter bomb sent to a minister caught fire, police said Saturday.

A large envelope containing a letter addressed to Berlusconi with the threat "you will end up like a rat" was discovered on Friday in a post office in the Libate suburb of the northern city of Milan, police said.

The package, which also referred to other leaders of Berlusconi's centre-right People of Freedom (PDL) party, was addressed to the prime minister's private residence in the Milan region, they said.

Arabs to Unite Against Israel at Annual Summit

Israeli arrogance has succeeded in uniting the Arab world. The result of this will mean war. Which means America will get involved. This translates into more Americans dying:

Arab leaders opened their annual summit Saturday determined to send a clear message that the Middle East peace process is doomed unless Israel freezes settlements in mostly Arab east Jerusalem.

Qatari Emir Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani, who hosted last year's summit in Doha, addressed the opening session in the Mediterranean city of Sirte before handing over the presidency to Libyan leader Moamer Kadhafi.

The two-day meeting, the first hosted by the maverick Kadhafi who considers Israel an implacable "enemy" of the Arabs, follows the worst violence in Gaza in 14 months and repeated rejections by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Arab demands to stop settlement building in occupied territory.

A Palestinian was killed and seven wounded during an overnight incursion by Israeli tanks into blockaded Gaza, Palestinian medics said on Saturday.

The incursion followed a fierce clash Friday on the border between the Gaza Strip and the Jewish state in which two Israeli soldiers, one an officer, and four Palestinians were killed, according to the Israeli army.

Fresh US efforts to broker indirect Israeli-Palestinian peace talks earlier this month were still-born when Israel announced a plan to build 1,600 new homes for Jewish settlers in annexed Arab east Jerusalem.
Worse yet, they've succeeded in united the Islamic world. Even with their arch enemy - Iran:
The Arab League chief is urging the 22-nation bloc to engage Iran directly over concerns about its growing influence and its nuclear activities.

Amr Moussa presented his proposal to a two-day Arab League leaders summit in Sirte, Libya, that started Saturday. The proposal could undermine U.S. and Israeli efforts to isolate Iran.

Obama's Health Insurance Rule — it was a GOP idea

Another example of the infinite hypocrisy of the Republicans:

Republicans were for President Barack Obama's requirement that Americans get health insurance before they were against it. The obligation in the new health care law is a Republican idea that's been around at least two decades. It was once trumpeted as an alternative to Bill and Hillary Clinton's failed health care overhaul in the 1990s. These days, Republicans call it government overreach.

Mitt Romney, weighing another run for the GOP presidential nomination, signed such a requirement into law at the state level as Massachusetts governor in 2006. At the time, Romney defended it as "a personal responsibility principle" and Massachusetts' newest GOP senator, Scott Brown, backed it. Romney now says Obama's plan is a federal takeover that bears little resemblance to what he did as governor and should be repealed.
