Is The Most Important Fighting...

On the Syrian border? Very interesting story about the battle for Qaim on the Syrian border. Could be a fight to defend Baathist leadership or WMD. Once again the news is where the cameras aren’t.

Meanwhile, in Dallas

Attention Andrew Stuttaford! I discovered while motoring around here in Dallas today that there is a shopping center near my house called — I’m not making this up — “Dr Pepper Station.” I also went to a couple of meetings in the swellegant Dallas Morning News executive conference room. It was rather more sleek and modern than our conference room back at NR World Headquarters. I kept waiting for someone to make a motion that we blow up Alderaan to teach the Rebel leaders a lesson.

Iraqi U.N. Ambassador Aldouri is leaving town–stopping in Paris and Syria. Imagine. Too bad he can’t take the whole U.N. with him.

The Nuke Find

ON FNC a little while ago NRO and FNC contributor Mansoor Ijaz said: “… what worries me is that if the [radiation spectrometer] readings are that high, might Saddam’s men have moved a significant amount of radioactive materials from the site in recent
days…” Implication is that if El Baradei didn’t find anything there before because it was hidden far underground, the only way you get that kind of radiation reading above ground is if the material was through that area recently, and moved hastily.

Justices Against Mandatory Minimums



Text  



Testifying before Congress yesterday, Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy decried the proliferation of mandatory minimum sentences. “Mandatory minimums are harsh and in many cases unjust,” Kennedy said, noting that as a result too many people are in federal prison. Justice Clarence Thomas, who was also at the hearing, appeared to concur with Justice Kennedy’s remarks, according to this report. Of note, both Justices voted to uphold the constitutionality of mandatory minimums, despite their opposition to such laws on public policy grounds.

Another “Divisive Far Right Nominee”?



Text  



The attacks on 10th Circuit judicial nominee Bill Pryor, currently serving as Alabama’s state attorney general, have begun. Nan Aron of the Alliance for Justice claims Pryor’s record contains “something to offend virtually every constituency in the country” (quoted here). Americans United for Church and State claims the Pryor nomination is a sign of Bush’s “arrogance” and Ralph Neas claims the nomination continues the Bush practice of naming “divisive far right nominees” (quoted here). Despite the protestations of liberal groups, these news stories also reveal that Pryor has substantial home-state support across the political spectrum.
