A senior U.S. officer has been charged with nine offenses, including aiding the enemy and fraternizing with the daughter of a detainee while he commanded a military police detachment at an American detention facility near Baghdad, the military said Thursday.

Senator Clinton acknowledged yesterday that Democrats do not want to risk being “blamed” for withholding funding for troops in Iraq, even as she joined Senator Obama in criticizing Mayor Giuliani for saying Democrats would put America back on the defensive in the war on terrorism.

I’m curious. Why is so much money spent on ‘campaigns’ to do something, rather than actually DOING it?
What officials initially suspected to be a botched attack by a hapless jihadi whose bombs detonated accidentally took on more sinister dimensions as police uncovered an alleged plot targeting tourist sites around Casablanca and across Morocco.
The government has downplayed potential links to international terrorist networks, but security analysts place the recent Casablanca violence within a wave of resurgent Islamic extremism in North Africa.
If we can’t call it a ‘war on terror’, as the Dhimmis are suggesting, what should the Moroccans call it?

Prayers with the family. R.I.P.
A father who raped his teenage daughter over several years and ordered her to throw two newborns he had fathered with her down an air shaft was sentenced to 35 years in prison.
