As you may remember, Angry Arab was very skeptical about that document that was allegedly composed by Abu Mus`ab Az-Zarqawi, and which was enthusiastically distributed and translated (into different languages) by the US government although it contained crude incitement to violence and sedition. Tomorrow’s edition of Al-Hayat is reporting that a group of Sunni fundamentalist [...]
US embassy in Algiers denies Washington has set up or intended to install any military bases in Algeria. Nobody asked, but…OK.
Abu Mus`ab Zarqawi, who is behind the attacks in Iraq, is apparently quite dead. Yet, he has been quite active from his grave. (thanks Shirin).
Le Monde confirms the reliability of the list published by Al-Mada newspaper (the list that contained the names of those individuals and companies that took bribes from Saddam).
The American (in)Justice System: “Lawyers Can Ask Bryant Accuser About Sexual Past, Judge Says”. Will Bush “liberate” American women, having “liberated” women in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Haiti?
This is the kind of solid evidence that the US govt has about Abu Mus`ab Zarqawi’s responsibility for the attacks in Iraq (from today’s New York Times): American officials said they had no hard evidence that he was behind the attacks on Tuesday, though General Abizaid said he suspected that he was.
It is amazing how much the US media fall for whatever line the US administration pushes on them.

This little-known [...]
The Bush administration appears to have succeeded in its long-time goal of toppling Aristide through years of blocking international aid to his impoverished nation.
“Girl soldiers have been members of fighting forces on a larger scale than previously thought – taking part in conflicts in 38 nations since 1990, said a study released Wednesday.”

As the Iraq war and subsequent occupation went so smoothly and just according to plans, Bush is considering another splendid war against North Korea. Let us hope that Abu Mus`ab Az-Zarqawi, the source of all ills in Iraq, does not turn up in North Korea. US already is relying on Ahmad Chalabi’s twin Asian brother, [...]
The Ancient Greeks despised “flattery of the masses” (demagogy in Greek). In a new Bush ad, he says: “Americans are hard working, decent, generous people. I’m optimistic about America because I believe in the people of America.”
