Hamas Tightens Noose on Gaza

Hamas, an organization once partially funded by Israel as an alternative to the PLO, is now Israel’s worst nightmare as religious fundamentalists seize Gaza.  Remember when Bush promised that the invasion of Iraq would bring sanity to the Mideast region?

Checking In With the Willing

Radar Online checks in with Mongolia, Bulgaria and the other member nations of the “coalition of the willing” still fighting in Iraq. Albania, true to its love of George W. Bush, promises to see the war through to the end, with its 120 troops. Reminder: Of the roughly 162,000 troops fighting in Iraq, 150,000 are American, 7,100 are British and the rest, a hodgepodge of nations from Armenia to the Ukraine—and that’s not counting the mercenaries.

The human rights organization says the church has misrepresented its policy and, in the process, imperiled human rights.

Hitchens Bros. Clash Over Belief

Writer Christopher Hitchens is drawing widespread attention with his latest provocative oeuvre, “God Is Not Great:  How Religion Poisons Everything.” But one person close to him questions the integrity of his atheist stance:  brother Peter Hitchens, who told the British paper The Independent (irking Christopher in the process) that he wonders if Christopher protests too much about his lack of belief.

Pelosi, Reid:  ‘Surge’ Has Failed

Top congressional Democrats Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid sent President Bush a pre-emptive strike in the form of a letter Wednesday, prior to a meeting with him later in the day, declaring that the “surge” strategy in Iraq was a failure on several fronts.  Reid and Pelosi’s challenge came on the same day as news broke about an “indefinite” curfew imposed in Baghdad.

Baghdad a Long Way from Meeting Benchmarks

The Iraqi government appears unlikely to pass three key proposals that the U.S. has laid out as benchmarks for continuing support. Even so, it seems unlikely that redistributing Iraq’s oil wealth, as one proposal mandates, or giving more power to the Iraqi president would do much to bring security and opportunity to the Iraqi people.

Shiite Shrine Bombed in Samarra

One of the holiest of Shiite Muslim shrines has been bombed in the Sunni-dominated Iraqi city of Samarra north of Baghdad. Explosions reportedly caused the collapse of the shrine’s two minarets.

White House Blasted Justice Officials for Revealing Rove Cronyism

An e-mail contained in a batch of documents released to the Senate on Tuesday exposed a searing rebuke from then-White House political affairs director Sara Taylor, who criticized Deputy Attorney General Paul McNulty for revealing that a U.S. attorney in Arkansas was fired to make room for a Karl Rove protege, not because of performance.

Intelligence Chief to Revise Spy Rules

National Intelligence Director Mike McConnell, with the blessing of the White House, will rewrite the Reagan-era executive order that defines the function of the United States’ many spy agencies and prohibits espionage against Americans. While critics concede that the order is out of date, they worry that an administration with a fondness for spying on its own might seize the opportunity to trample on a few civil liberties.
