Bin Laden and Mohammed Met Weeks Ago in Pakistan

Terrorist mastermind Osama bin Laden met with his now-seized chief operational lieutenant in Pakistan last month. [...] Details of the meeting were discovered in material seized Saturday during the arrest by Pakistani and U.S. officials of Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, the suspected planner of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on New York and the Pentagon
U.S., Pakistani Forces Look for bin Laden
Pakistani and American forces are scouring the southwestern part of the border with Afghanistan in search of Osama bin Laden, after a newly captured al-Qaida deputy told his interrogators bin Laden was in the area
Terrorists aim at Pearl Harbor
Terrorists linked to al Qaeda have targeted U.S. military facilities in Pearl Harbor, including nuclear-powered submarines and ships. [...] According to officials familiar with the reports, al Qaeda is planning an attack on Pearl Harbor because of its symbolic value and because its military facilities are open from the air.
Human shield Britons quit Baghdad
Nine of the original 11 activists decided to pull out after being given an ultimatum by Iraqi officials to station themselves at targets likely to be bombed in a war or leave the country.
I'll close with a little humor from Jay Leno:
According to the latest intelligence reports, Saddam Hussein may have numerous mistresses all over Baghdad. A married man with numerous mistresses ... no wonder the French didn't want to go after him.

The latest word is that Saddam Hussein may have back problems. They think he got it playing softball with Dan Rather. [...] I've seen people ask Ron Popeil tougher questions on infomercials.

Yes, I did watch the President's press conference tonight. I loved a few in the press who posed 20 part questions -- reminded me of grad school final exams.


I love these Masterminds with the human shield. They go to Iraq as HUMAN SHIELDS and then, once they get there, they are completely taken by surprise at the fact that it's dangerous. This had to be a joke from the beginning, right?
