They let the bastard go!

From Yahoo news here:

SAN'A, Yemen - Yemen has set free one of the al-Qaida masterminds of the USS Cole bombing in 2000 that killed 17 American sailors, a senior security official said Thursday.

Jamal al-Badawi, who is wanted by the FBI, was convicted in 2004 of plotting, preparing and helping carry out the USS Cole bombing and received a death sentence that was commuted to 15 years in prison.

He and 22 others, mostly al-Qaida fighters, escaped from prison in 2004. But al-Badawi was granted his freedom after turning himself in 15 days ago and pledging loyalty to Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh, said the official, speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media.

Terror threat still there

From NEWS MAX here:
While progress has been made, the war on terror is being undercut by leaks of operational secrets, Allen says.

“Any time you give aid and comfort to the enemy, or talk about counter measures the United States may be taking or measures that are out there to disrupt or defeat al-Qaida, it’s devastating to the United States,” he says.

Most of all, Americans must not lose their will in what will be a long battle.

“We Americans have to be strong, we have to be resilient,” Allen says. “We’ve got to be very, very tough.”

My message to congress: Build the fence, let intelligence monitor terrorist phone calls and charge the NYT with TREASON!

To kill talk radio

Rep. Henry Waxman wants to investigate Rush, Hannity and other right wing talk shows. He wants to use our tax dollars to shut these talk shows down. Hey Rep. Waxman what part of the constituion you don't understand?

Bill of Rights: Amemdment I Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

The left has the freedom to have their own talk shows. It's just they don't have the audience or market share that advertisers will buy spots for. So they have the power to use our tax dollars to investigate and slime the greatest in the business. I'll fight these bastards to keep Rush and Sean on the air! I love talk radio. It keeps me sane during a full day while little o' me stay home mom does the chores, pick the kids up and take them to swimming lessons. Please don't take it away from me!

Petraeus comments on Iran

Meanwhile, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Sunday he was not asking for talks with the United States, but they would be possible if Washington changed its policy toward Teheran, Iran's official Web site reported.

Referring to last week's comment by US President George W. Bush regarding Washington's willingness to negotiate with Iran if it suspended its nuclear program, Ahmadinejad responded: "We firstly say that we never asked for negotiations with the United States. Negotiations with the US will happen when the US government applies basic changes in its behavior and attitude."

"Setting conditions is our right since we have been worrying about your atomic bombs as well as the warmongers standing beside them," Ahmadinejad was quoted by the Web site as saying.

He reiterated that Iran was ready to negotiate with any individual and country except its arch foe, Israel.

Regarding Iran's disputed nuclear activities, Ahmadinejad said his country was ready for negotiation over mutual cooperation, "but we do consider it meaningless to talk over nuclear rights of the Iranian nation."

The basic changes Iran wants are for the US to stop supporting Israel and withdrawing US troops from Iraq. I don't think it will do one bit of good to negotiate with Iran. It is better to go in and bomb Iranian sites that threaten the West.
