A gang of girls may have used the internet to make a bomb that killed a man and destroyed three homes in their feud with another teenager.
Former classmates of Charlotte Anderson, 17, are being sought by police after a blast destroyed her flat, an apartment above and two neighbouring cottages in Harrow, northwest London.
If these girls were Muslims you know we’d hear no end of the Rightie punditry using it as anecdotal evidence that all Muslims were out to destroy western civilization.
A woman who said she was raped by co-workers while employed by a contractor in Iraq can take her claims to trial, a federal judge ruled Friday.
Jamie Leigh Jones filed a federal lawsuit last year, saying she was attacked while working for a Halliburton Co. subsidiary at Camp Hope, Baghdad, in 2005. Her lawsuit claims that after she endured harassment from some of the men where she lived in coed barracks, she was drugged and raped by Halliburton and KBR firefighters.
If her lawyer is smart she’ll try and delay things until there is a friendlier staff at the Department of Justice to help clear the bureaucratic hurdles involved with getting at KBR.
Republican cronies and corrupt business men give John McCain their endorsement – well I’m probably not far off considering McCain’s history, Allegations of ranch deal threaten McCain’s clean image
The Washington Post reported that McCain pushed legislation through Congress for an Arizona housing development that benefited one of the senator’s main presidential fundraisers.
It was the second report this election season to raise questions about McCain’s reputation as a crusader against the influence of money in politics.
Helen Thomas asks People Can Handle the Truth About War
Some readers resented The Washington Post for publishing an Associated Press photograph of a critically wounded Iraqi child being lifted from the rubble of his home in Baghdad’s Sadr City “after a U.S. airstrike.”
Two-year-old Ali Hussein later died in a hospital.
As the saying goes, the picture was worth a thousand words because it showed the true horrors of this war.
Neither side is immune from killing Iraqi civilians. But Americans should be aware of their own responsibility for inflicting death and pain on the innocent.
The Post’s ombudsman, Deborah Howell, said about 20 readers complained about the photo, while a few readers praised The Post for publishing the stark picture on Page 1.
Those 20 people are the same ones that went to see V for Vendetta and thought the guy in the mask was the bad guy. They only want to see and hear the news officially approved by Pravda Bush.
