Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton will not participate in a Democratic debate co-hosted by Fox News Channel this fall, campaign aides indicated today.

And who is being divisive? Perhaps they are afraid of a few tough questions.
Fatah leader Marwan Barghouti, the most senior Palestinian held by Israel, is among the hundreds of inmates the Hamas organization wants in exchange for the release of kidnapped Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit, Palestinian Information Minister Mustafa Barghouti said Monday. The information minister and the prisoner are distant relatives.
Evidently the Palestinians believe hundreds of their own aren’t worth as much as one Israeli. I’m inclined to agree when they behave in such a manner.
Turkey’s persistent denial of the massacres of Armenians during World War I is threatening the European Union’s common energy policy, relations with France and the operations of a major U.S. base on Turkish territory.

Kofi Annan was dragged kicking and screaming to fill in his own financial disclosure.

There are several reasons behind this explosion in the foreign-car market. First, the quality of Russian cars is inferior to foreign ones. Soon they will not be able to compete with foreigners even in terms of price. The country’s engineering schools, which were quite strong in the past, have lost their potential after 15 years without sufficient financing. So there is almost no other alternative for the Russian car industry but to develop using the achievements of international carmakers.
American, Japanese or German? Oddly enough, Ford is a biggie over there, although Ford would have to pay me to drive one of their vehicles.
Among the state’s findings: the agency, which has operated since 1992, falsified adoption documents; forged family members’ signatures; charged extra, undisclosed fees; threatened families who complained about delays and additional costs and took money from one family for a Kenyan adoption the agency was not authorized to conduct.
With all the children in this country who need a family’s love, why do our citizens have to go overseas to find children? The bureaucracy seriously needs to be overhauled, making it easier for potential parents to be matched with children who need a home.
