“a Positive Step”



Text  



Bush is laying it a little thick for Blair: I want to thank Kofi Annan for naming a personal representative on Iraq. He clarifies, though, that the “vital role” for the U.N. he is talking humanitarian aid. If we can make the U.N. a second Red Cross, how much damage could they do in the world?

More Bush: “It might have been yesterday…I don’t know….”

Did the president really have to advertise that Gerry Adams has been invited to the White House on St. Patrick’s Days?

From air power guy:

What makes me crazy is every military talking head shooting off his mouth as to how this was done…Jaguar radio intercepts, Special Forces tactics, etc.

Shut up, already people! Yeah, yeah all that stuff’s probably going to leak out anyway, but…at least make the Chinese work for their intel and war college syllabus edits.

Sheesh.

Look Who Showed Up

Perhaps he was feeling left out. An Osama bin Laden tape surfaces. Conveniently, he wants supporters of the war on Iraq dead, still.

Damn Yankees

On the way into the office, I heard this on a NYC radio station: Overnight, the U.S. took out Arab media–including the Arabic Al-Jazeera and Abu Dabi television networks–in order to stop the Iraqi message from going out to the Arab world. That was it. And that is what the world probably believes. And….if the Iraqis happened to be behind the sniper at the Palestine hotel, that’s exactly what they were hoping for.

Coincidence?



Text  



The restaurant in which the hit was made was called al Saa. In Islam, the term al Saa refers to the final call to judgment by Allah. Ironic, no?

AND SHOOTING AT US. Greg Kelly on FNC is reporting this from the Baghdad palace his army guys (3rd ID) took yesterday.

More Intel to Come

NRO Contributor Mansoor Ijaz is on his way to FNC for the night shift (well, or the key hours, Baghdad time). The man’s got some excellent sources.

We Could Know in Hours



Text  



Steve Emerson, antiterrorism expert extraordinair, suggests we’ll likely know quickly if he is dead, because of the chatter from all the folks around Saddam. Of course, they, too, could be dead….one report tonight had 60 Baath officials in the restaurant under which this bunker meeting might have been. (Babbin brings this up too.)

It costs money to produce. (Think of the No-Doz alone.) Consider contributing to NRO.
