Al Qaeda No. 2: Bush must admit defeat in Iraq (CNN) -- An Arabic language news network has aired a video of al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden's top lieutenant, in which he called on U.S. President George W. Bush to admit defeat in Iraq. Al-Jazeera said the video, which is about a minute long, was made in December. According to CNN's translation of the video, Ayman al-Zawahiri offers his condolences to Pakistan for the October 8 earthquake before congratulating fellow Muslims for what he says...

Afterwards, Klein writes, "The consultants were unanimous in their recommendations to the candidate: Don't talk about it.

I'm starting to wish Dean had not accepted the job as Head of the National Democratic Committee because now he has to walk on eggshells and speak on behalf of the party. He should have declined the job and put in another run for the presidency. Then, we would hear his own personal views. As of now, he has to be careful about giving his own views as opposed to the Party's view. We already know the Democrats in Washington have yet to grow a spine and speak out against anything for fear of...

Ever since I read "They Came Before Columbus," I have wanted to see one of those grand epic movies get made about the voyage of the Malian ruler Abu Bakari II to the Americas.
