Senator Craig Is Innocent Until Proven Guilty

Published by under All General Discussions

I had hoped someone I know who interned with Senator Craig would post on the man they knew (and this person still may, stay tuned). But what I have heard from this person is total disgust with the spineless and back stabbing GOP. While some on the right can go around claiming things like El […]

More Contradictions In The Litvinenko Timeline, More Holes In UK Theory

Note, this turned into a really long post full of details once I found the transcript of the interview Kovtun and Lugovoi gave to the British media. All I can say is there are lots and lots of holes now appearing in the UK theories. I suspected we might get more information on some of […]

Ahmed Zakayev Testimony Destroys Litvinenko Timeline

A Very Sound Idea For Iraq

Litvinenko Incident Clear As Mud

The truth about what happened to Alexander Litvinenko has become clear as mud. The joint, timed media shows that Berezovsky and the UK authorities were performing (i.e., the mysterious Russian assassin the UK detected, detained, and then released back to Russia and never told Russia about) have now moved to Russia.

al-Qaeda’s Diminishing Acceptance

al-Qaeda is losing ground among Muslims in ever increasing numbers. In Iraq the sinking of al-Qaeda, due to their violence and bloodlust, has turned the situation around to the point Iraqis are taking up arms to liberate themselves and their neighbors from al-Qaeda’s brutal control.
