Al Bawaba is confirming a report I posted here yesterday: “Reports in Kuwait on Friday said a man assumed to be Al Qaeda leader in Iraq, Abu Musab Zarqawi has been captured near the Syrian border.” It’d still be interesting to get some western confirmation, OR denial. I’m seeing neither.

Well, I’ll say it up front; I expected Kerry to attempt to deceive in his acceptance speech last night… and I wasn’t disappointed.  He started doing it with the very first words out of is mouth, no less… “We’re here because we love our country.” Sorry, but no sale. I’ve watched Democrats too long to […]
