Pentagon Transcripts Show Khalid Sheikh Mohammed Confesses to Sept. 11 Attacks

Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the suspected mastermind of the Sept. 11 attacks, confessed to that attack and a string of others during a military hearing at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, according to a transcript released by the Pentagon.

“I was responsible for the 9/11 operation from A to Z,” Mohammed said in a statement read during the session, which was held last Saturday.

Does this mean the Osama bin Laden was out having tea and felafel’s at the time it was all going down?

Israeli officials slam EU remarks

Israeli officials expressed disappointment Wednesday that EU foreign policy chief Javier Solana backed a full Israeli withdrawal from the Golan Heights following talks in Damascus with Syrian leaders, rather than publicly calling Syria to task for supporting terrorism.

But, the officials said, Solana’s remarks did not signify a significant change in EU policy, since the EU has backed a return of the Golan to Syria for years.

Isn’t Israel a sovereign nation? The U.N. should does get involved in everything that humiliates Israel, and make tham pay for being slaughtered. I’m having a tough time processing that information.

Palestinians Reach Agreement on Forming Unity Cabinet

March 15 (Bloomberg) — Palestinian leaders completed negotiations for a national unity government after the leaders of the Hamas and Fatah movements agreed on a candidate for interior minister, Prime Minister Ismael Hania said.

“I give good news for the Palestinian people at home and in exile — we have finished everything related to the national unity government, especially the interior ministry portfolio,” Hania, a Hamas leader, told reporters in Gaza late yesterday, declining to say who would hold the post.

I give it six months. Six uneasy months.

Republican says Gonzales should be fired

Sen. John Sununu of New Hampshire on Wednesday became the first Republican in Congress to call for Attorney General Alberto Gonzales’ dismissal, hours after President Bush expressed confidence in his embattled Cabinet officer.

Ya know, it would be really nice if the Republicans had the ability to grown some stones!
