French Offer More Troops

Not to be outdone by the Italians, France has raised its troop commitment to 2,000, hoping to retain its leadership role in the peacekeeping effort in Lebanon.  Kofi Annan was initially displeased with Europe’s response to the call for a peacekeeping force.

14th Time’s the Charm

Whether it’s because he’s facing a tough campaign against an antiwar Democrat or he just lost his supply of kool-aid, Christopher Shays (R-Conn.) has swung ‘round to sanity on the Iraq war.  After returning from his 14th visit to Iraq, the once-steadfast hawk called for a timetable for withdrawal and bashed Rumsfeld: “I haven’t had faith in the secretary in a long time.”

Book: Giuliani Was No Hero

What if former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani wasn’t the hero everybody thought? What if, like Bush, Giuliani had ignored myriad pre-9/11 warnings about terrorism? What if he thus left the city ill-prepared to respond to such a disaster? That’s the provocative thesis of a new book written by two top-flight investigative journalists.

Republicans to Spy Agencies: Make Iran Scarier

Senior Bush officials and other top Republicans are apparently angry that U.S. intelligence agencies aren’t issuing more ominous threats about Iran. The GOP’ers, marred by (but unrepentant for) their Iraq debacle, are eager to use their lethal Tonka Toys once again—this time in Iran.

  • Check out an intelligence expert at AMERICAblog who argues that Iran poses no imminent threat to the U.S.

  • ... by killing people

    Three Little Words

    Blogger “Surfeited” has a novel suggestion: “Whenever a neoconservative says something should be done ... you can finish the thought for him by adding three little words: by killing people.” Skeptical? Check out the samples.

    Katherine Harris: Separation of Church and State ‘a Lie’

    Katherine Harris, villain of the 2004 Florida recount saga and a congresswoman running for U.S. Senate, recently dismissed to an interviewer the idea that religion should stay out of politics, saying, “God is the one who chooses our rulers.”
    So was it God or was it Katherine Harris who fraudulently threw all those eligible black citizens off the voting rolls in 2004?  Hey, if she wants to run with the “omnipotent God” logic, she can’t have it both ways….

    Christian Coalition Losing Chapters

    State affiliates are severing ties with the conservative evangelical organization, in part because it’s diverting attention from abortion and same-sex marriage to address other issues—like the environment.
    So: The Christian Coalition begins supporting a non-hateful cause that could actually improve the world, and it gets deserted by affiliates that see same-sex marriage as a greater threat than global warming.
    In other words, the Christian Coalition got out-crazied!

    U.S. OKs Nonprescription ‘Morning-After’ Pill Sales

    This is a home run for women’s reproductive rights. However, over-the-counter sales are available only to women 18 and older. And that restriction isn’t based on science. It’s based on the paranoid and unfounded fear that the drug would encourage promiscuity among teens.

    Amnesty International Accuses Israel of War Crimes

    Amnesty International has referred to some of Israel’s actions in Lebanon as “war crimes that give rise to individual criminal responsibility.”  A report by the human rights organization condemned the deliberate bombing of civilian infrastructure and the loss of civilian life, noting: “Entire families were killed in air strikes on their homes or in their vehicles while fleeing the aerial assaults on their villages ... as the Red Cross and other rescue workers were prevented from accessing the areas by continuing Israeli strikes.”
