Failing the Sniff Test

U.S. Checking al Qaeda Claim of Killing Bhutto

Of course, the inevitable claim that Al Qaeda is responsible for Bhutto's death, complete with picture of Bin Laden lookalike paired with the victim.

Is there anything that Al Qaeda is NOT responsible for? Acne? Herpes? The heartbreak of psoriasis?

Never fear, the Bush administration will ferret out the evil-doers, and will vow to bring them to justice. International terror marches on.

U.S. Troops to Head to Pakistan - Early Warning

U.S. Troops to Head to Pakistan - Early Warning

Are we surprised?

With Bhutto assassinated and safely out of the way, the path is open now for a full court press by the US government into Pakistan, something they've been trying to do for some time. Both the US and Great Britain have supported Bhutto in her attempts to pull back the Pakistani government from military domination, all the while knowing that she would soon be killed if she stayed in the country very long. Where were the troops protecting her today?

Pakistan will be another outpost in the American Empire.
