Fly By 11/27/07

Lots and lots happening related to Iraq and little time to post this morning – so back to the Fly By format. Top of the list is the neutering of the far left’s attempts to pull out of Iraq and destroy our currently fragile progress that was so hard fought for (and sacrificed for) this […]

Some more quick hits on stories I was reading this morning before heading out for the day. Turkey has a man in jail who claims to have trained the 9-11 hijackers. While this could be faux bravado or some effort to divert attention, the man does seem to have the characteristics one would expect in […]

But I won’t leave folks totally high and dry, so here is a Fly By of some interesting stories on al-Qaeda and Iraq. One […]

Just some quick hits this morning (meetings again) – but more this afternoon when I get a break. I find the fact that Alexander Litvinenko WAS a MI6 paid ‘consultant’ (at his salary of 2,000 pounds (~$3500) a month he was probably just an informant) a very interesting and telling twist to the Polonium smuggling […]

On the road with the family enjoying a day of rollercoasters at Busch Gardens Williamsburg for LJStrata’s annual birthday bash – with a dash of fast. Take if from all of us, ride the Griffon. Totally wicked. The youngest finally got to do Lochness Monster and are on their way to becoming coaster addicts like […]

Wanted to do a Fly By on the War on terrorism and some key stories out of Iraq and Afghanistan. Not much time for commentary on these this morning. To the surprise (actually, ‘dismay’ would be a more accurate word) of the liberal media the results of The Surge are still paying dividends. The death […]

A quick Flyby this morning before a full day of work. Here is an interesting account in the BBC from someone who has taken two trips into Ramadi – the heart of al Qaeda’s dream caliphate and a center of terrorism and insurgency in Iraq. A snippet: This city of some 400,000 people has been […]

I am just rolling my eyes over the Clinton-Obama bickering today. Is this really the most important news in the nation or world today? Clinton-Obama Throwdown The two leading Democratic presidential camps have gotten into a nasty row involving Hollywood kingmaker David Geffen. But neither side wins this fight. Nasty? How about “petty and childish”? […]
