George Jefferies didn’t think his film of JFK’s last moments was all that interesting, so he simply held on to it for more than four decades.

Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and Condoleezza Rice concluded a highly vaunted two-hour meeting with no firm commitment other than an agreement to maintain communication.

Bloody Sunday

A series of explosions around the world has killed more than 120 people. A train bombing in northern India left at least 64 people dead, while three car bombs in Baghdad—the bloodiest violence since a security crackdown began—killed more than 60 and injured at least 131. A bomb also exploded at a McDonald’s in St. Petersburg, Russia, in an act of “hooliganism,” according to police. There was no indication that each nation’s violence was related to the explosions in the other countries.

Hillary Refuses to Apologize for Iraq War Vote

Hillary Clinton is apparently so concerned with the specter of flip-flopping she will never apologize for her vote to authorize military action against Iraq.
