Saudis behead man, hang him on cross as "deterrent"

The body of the man, beheaded by sword, was put on a cross in the Saudi capital Riyadh, state news agency SPA said, quoting the interior ministry.
The article is full of lies. For instance:
In a decisive break with the Bush administration, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explicitly has rejected Israelis' arguments that they're allowed to continue building in existing settlements under the U.S.-backed and Israeli-endorsed so-called road map for peace in the region.BULLSHIT DELUXE!
They continually write these articles with these outright LIES in them designed to prove how the Bush Admin was doing something differently.

'Obama committed to ejecting Jews from Judea-Samaria,' says Abbas
ANALYSIS / Congress gives Obama green light to squeeze Israel
Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas on Saturday told reporters in Cairo that he is convinced that US President Barack Obama is firmly committed to finally ejecting the Jews from Judea and Samaria.
Abbas spoke to the press after briefing Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak on his visit to the White House late last week, during which Obama apparently agreed with his guest that existing Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria must not even be allowed to experience “natural growth.”
“When the American administration talks about Israel's duty to stop the settlements - including natural growth - it is a very important step,” noted Abbas.
This strategy, echoed in every statement by administration officials about the Middle East, was probably formulated by White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel. Obama reiterated it at his meeting with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas at the White House on Thursday. Obama demanded that the Palestinians stop their incitement against Israel and said he would not talk to Hamas until it recognizes Israel. Congress supports these positions strongly, but they have a price. On the eve of Obama's "reconciliation" speech to the Muslim world in Cairo, scheduled for this Thursday, he has one main demand from Israel - stop the settlements. That was his little gift to the Arab world.Muslims want tangible change on Mideast from Obama
Muslims want Jerusalem and Jewish Blood.
Obama will be happy to oblige.

Why the OIC should move closer to Kosovo and assist its continuous efforts for state building? Why the OIC countries should no longer remain fence sitters but should take an active role in supporting Kosovo? I would start by saying that in the conditions and circumstances of the current globalization process the future and the success of the Kosovo state should be an issue of equal strategic interest, not only for the western countries, but also for those coming from the OIC.Obama merges homeland, national security staffs

White House moves to restrict criticism of stimulus projects
And so it begins....
"First, we will expand the restriction on oral communications to cover all persons, not just federally registered lobbyists. For the first time, we will reach contacts not only by registered lobbyists but also by unregistered ones, as well as anyone else exerting influence on the process. We concluded this was necessary under the unique circumstances of the stimulus program.
"Second, we will focus the restriction on oral communications to target the scenario where concerns about merit-based decision-making are greatest –after competitive grant applications are submitted and before awards are made. Once such applications are on file, the competition should be strictly on the merits. To that end, comments (unless initiated by an agency official) must be in writing and will be posted on the Internet for every American to see.
"Third, we will continue to require immediate internet disclosure of all other communications with registered lobbyists. If registered lobbyists have conversations or meetings before an application is filed, a form must be completed and posted to each agency’s website documenting the contact."

Holder Announces Uber Fusion Center:
Today, Attorney GeneralFBI IOC-2 Center Press Release
Eric Holderannounced a new International Organized Crime Intelligence and Operations Center (IOC-2) that will marshal the resources and information of nine U.S. law enforcement agencies, as well as federal prosecutors, to collectively combat the threats posed by international criminal organizations to domestic safety and security. Attorney General Holder made the announcement today in Romeat the G8 Justice and Home Affairs Ministerial.
The new IOC-2 Center will allow partner agencies to join together in a task force setting, combine data, and produce actionable leads for investigators and prosecutors working nationwide to combat international organized crime, and to coordinate the resulting multi-jurisdictional investigations and prosecutions. Understanding that international criminal organizations are profit-driven, IOC-2 will also work with investigators and prosecutors to target the criminal proceeds and assets of international criminal organizations.

PRAVDA: American capitalism gone with a whimper
First, the population was dumbed down through a politicized and substandard education system based on pop culture, rather then the classics. Americans know more about their favorite TV dramas then the drama in DC that directly affects their lives. They care more for their "right" to choke down a McDonalds burger or a BurgerKing burger than for their constitutional rights. Then they turn around and lecture us about our rights and about our "democracy". Pride blind the foolish.
Then their faith in God was destroyed, until their churches, all tens of thousands of different "branches and denominations" were for the most part little more then Sunday circuses and their televangelists and top protestant mega preachers were more then happy to sell out their souls and flocks to be on the "winning" side of one pseudo Marxist politician or another. Their flocks may complain, but when explained that they would be on the "winning" side, their flocks were ever so quick to reject Christ in hopes for earthly power. Even our Holy Orthodox churches are scandalously liberalized in America.

Neal, you were the man running Uranium One at the time that you did the deal with UrAsia, which brought these Kazakhstan assets into the Uranium One picture.
