Zounds! – Robert Novak: Mission to Niger

Robert Novak: Mission to Niger: “Wilson never worked for the CIA, but his wife, Valerie Plame, is an Agency operative on weapons of mass destruction. Two senior administration officials told me Wilson’s wife suggested sending him to Niger to investigate the Italian report. The CIA says its counter-proliferation officials selected Wilson and asked his wife to contact him. ‘I will not answer any question about my wife,’ Wilson told me.

What a PIG Novak is. His heart is full of hate to bring Wilson’s wife into his penty opinion column. I hope justice is serve and he is punished for naming a US CIA Agent.”

Blog for America: “Getting Ready for the House Party: Los Angeles, CA
I just arrived at the L.A. House Call which the Governor will call. A few reporters are milling around — including one ex-L.A. Times reporter who quit her job two weeks ago so she could work on the campaign. As we were rooting around for a glass for water she told me that she’d been following Dean for a while, but finally decided that this election was too important to maintain her journalist, impartial view. The door keeps swinging open with new guests, and the host’s son just set me up with Internet connection. I love knowing that all around the country, thousands of people are doing the exact same thing — welcoming their first guests, finding glasses for water, getting their Internet set up and getting ready to connect with over 1400 other phone lines and House parties. “

Fox publicizes CNN commentator’s home number, after talk host gives out FNC’s phone

Fox publicizes CNN commentator’s home number, after talk host gives out FNC’s phone: “The two leading cable news networks, Fox News and CNN, have engaged in a tit-for-tat public battle over phone numbers.
According to Fox, Tucker Carlson, co-host of CNN’s ‘Crossfire,’ made a ‘journalistic blunder’ by giving out the phone number of Fox’s Washington bureau on the air when he was prodded to reveal his own home number.
After Fox began receiving ‘numerous phone calls,’ according to the report, Fox posted a story on its website that included Tucker’s actual home phone number. “

Reluctance to Share Control in Iraq Leaves U.S. on Its Own (washingtonpost.com)

Reluctance to Share Control in Iraq Leaves U.S. on Its Own (washingtonpost.com): “NEW YORK — To rebuild Iraq after the ouster of Saddam Hussein, the Bush administration wanted control and it wanted international help on U.S. terms. A difficult few days of personal diplomacy at the United Nations last week confirmed that President Bush cannot have both, so he has settled for control.

Neither the United Nations nor the Iraqi Governing Council will have much authority over events in Iraq anytime soon, the White House has decided. Policymakers consider the Iraqi overhaul too complex and the stakes too high to risk surrendering enough responsibility to win significant amounts of fresh international assistance.
That calculation, rooted in the politics of Iraq and Iowa alike, leaves Bush and his key aides largely where they were on the war’s opening night: calling the shots, essentially alone.
‘They’re on their own,’ a U.N. official said. ‘It’s just between them and the American taxpayer.’ “

Zounds! – CBC News:Huge ice shelf in Canadian North splits

CBC News:Huge ice shelf in Canadian North splits: “QUEBEC CITY – Canadian and American researchers are blaming warming conditions for the breakup of the largest ice shelf in the Arctic.
The Ward Hunt ice shelf on the north coast of Ellesmere Island broke up between 2000 and 2002, according to scientists who visited the site and studied satellite images.

Local warming since the 19th century is to blame for the breakup. Atmospheric warming has been named a cause of a collapsing ice shelf in the West Antarctic, but scientists don’t have enough evidence to link the Arctic melting to global climate change.”

OK lets see, heat melts ice. And to melt an Artic Cap, it would take a lott of heat, say Global Warming?
