Ports Deal to Close by Monday?

A Bush official claims that the Dubai ports deal will close Friday or Monday, despite a 45-day review by the U.S. government.
Uhhh, can anyone help us figure this one out? It seems ludicrous, but then again, so was Bush’s immediate response to Sept. 11.

O’Reilly Threatens Caller re Olbermann

Bill O’Reilly and MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann have been feuding for a while now (background story here, a video example, and another clip), and on Thursday, when a caller to O’Reilly’s show merely mentioned Olbermann’s name, Bill cut the line and said, “We have your phone number and we’re going to turn it over to Fox security, and you’re going to get a visit”—as though the caller was threatening O’Reilly—when in fact O’Reilly was threatening the caller!
UPDATE: FOX security calls back

Bush: Torture Ban Not Valid at Gitmo

Truly shocking: White House lawyers are arguing that the new law banning cruel, inhumane or degrading treatment of detainees does not apply to people held at Guantanamo.

Bush Knew More Than He Let On About Iraq

Bush never let the nation in on the fact that the Energy and State departments had given him reports that cast major doubts on Saddam’s WMD capacity and his willingness to attack the U.S. The National Journal has this major exclusive.
It has become undeniable that Bush & Co. never had any intention of allowing America to properly weigh all the evidence available on Saddam’s prewar capabilities and intentions. (Hat tip: Brad Blog)

Pizza Magnate Plans Catholic-Governed Town

The founder of Domino’s Pizza is planning on spending $250 million to create a Florida town with no abortions, no porn and no birth control.
Civil libertarians are threatening to sue, and liberal Catholics are likening the idea to Islamic fundamentalism.
Couldn’t the guy put his money where it’s really needed, like toward schools in Darfur? Or a pizza crust that doesn’t resemble a sponge full of grease? (Hat tip: Huff Post)

Tony Blair: Shut Down Guantanamo Prison

The British prime minister becomes the latest to urge the closure of the infamous detention center in Cuba. Jimmy Carter, Kofi Annan and Sen. Joe Biden, among others, have all made similar pleas, which the White House has brushed off.

Bill Clinton Advised UAE on Ports Deal

The spinmeister in chief gave the Arab country advice on how to allay concerns about its pending takeover of major U.S. ports. (Clinton did this at the same time his wife was railing against the deal—just in case anyone mistakenly assumes that the N.Y. senator takes all her cues from the ex-prez.)
