Wow, this story is no longer a "WorldNetDaily exclusive". The story is now the headline at cbc.ca and I just heard it repeated on the radio.

I wish I had a media story tracer.

Just out of curiosity, why is it that if the American military personnel was killed in a military action by the people they're waging war against, they're calling it a "murder"? Is it "murder" when Afghan soldiers or rebels are killed in action?

That is an excellent point.

This is amazing- this person's just a bit younger than me!

I'd like to hear of some actual evidence at least once during the witch hunt for anyone that might have any sort of connection with Bin Laden. This whole "we think he may have been there helping these people, etc." stuff is getting old- what, are we just supposed to take their word for it?

Maybe because the victim is described as a medic.

Oh, I see. I saw that, but I thought it was someone in the US military. I didn't realize they weren't considered combatants.

A special forces medic is still a combatant, I do believe.
I'm pretty sure their medic training is secondary to their war fighting. I could be wrong on that one though...

That's what I was thinking too. That's why I wrote what I did.

Looks like somebody was listening to you over at WorldNetDaily, Michelle. This revised article removed the word "murdered." Now can somebody please ask clockwork to stop posting those links to the OpinionJournal and WorldNetDaily?

According to the Senate committee on the marijuana thingy, the marijuana black market is a revenue stream for terrorists.

I propose we arrest any and all opponents of the legalization and legal cultivation and retailing of marijuana, as active aiders and abettors of international terrorism.

Hey, what's good for the goose.....

Hee Hee. I like your plan, Tommy. It would put some of the right people behind bars for a change.
