Feuj
French police first rushed to ignore the antisemitic nature of Ilan Halimi's kidnapping and death and now they say that Ilan's killers were influenced by the Abu Ghraib photographs. So in other words it's really America's fault that a young Jewish man was tortured and burned alive, and the murderers are victims themselves, and we shouldn't emphasize too much that Ilan was killed for the simple fact that he was Jewish because feelings in the "ghetto"* might be hurt.
Police said that the gang appeared to have been driven by greed and the crude racial stereotypes that prevailed on the estates. Feuj, slang for Jew, is a common insult in the ghetto-like estates. The group had been influenced by television, particularly the Abu Ghraib torture pictures, officers said.

In Parliament, M Sarkozy played down the kidnapping as a religious or political act. “These thugs acted first of all out of sordid criminal motives in a search for money, but they were convinced that ‘Jews have money’," he said.

M de Villepin was reported yesterday to have reprimanded Pascal Clément, the Justice Minister, for quoting one of the accused kidnappers as saying M Halimi had been abducted “because he was Jewish, and Jews are rich". His discretion reflects official fear of stirring the anger that drove thousands of young men from Muslim-dominated estates to a frenzy of fire-bombing last autumn.
*"Ghetto" is the new euphemism for Muslims, apparently.

American troops bogged down in quagmire
101 more soldiers have died at home riding motorcycles than in Afghanistan since 9/11. We must find someone to surrender to at once.
Motorcycle crashes have claimed 350 soldiers' lives, compared with 259 fatalities in Afghanistan. The US military is so alarmed at the rising number of deaths that it has ordered soldiers to undertake counselling on how to adjust to the slower pace of life at home. Free road safety courses are also on offer.

Military leaders blame the deaths on a mix of "adrenaline, testosterone and boredom" that soldiers often struggle with on their return to the US.

After tours of duty in countries bereft of opportunities to spend their pay, many servicemen buy machines that are faster and more powerful than they can handle.

"You spend a year in combat, getting shot at, escaping death," said Cliff Capps of the Army Combat Readiness Centre at Fort Rucker, Alabama, which monitors accidents involving servicemen. "When you get back you've got a pocketful of money, so you get a fast car or motorcycle."

NYT hissy fit over classified papers
The New York Times has a two-page article that is one of its 5 most read today, and it's much ado about nothing at all. They're complaining that after Clinton released millions of pages of formerly classified documents to the National Archives in 1995, national security agencies asked for some of them to be reclassified because they were still too sensitive. This withdrawal effort began under Clinton, in 1999, when the economy was still in its heyday and one could reasonably expect Al Gore to be the next President. The NYT complains that the effort has "accelerated" under Bush, and that therefore, the Bush administration is being unreasonably paranoid and secretive. A look at the numbers dispels this notion.

The CIA is only one of the several agencies that release documents to the National Archive. It has released 26 million pages since 1998 alone.

55,000 pages in 9,500 documents have been reclassified since 1999. 1,500 under Clinton, and 8,000 under Bush. That's about 1,600 a year under Bush. Considering the relatively tiny numbers we're looking at here, it is ridiculous for the NYT to try to paint this as some dramatic "acceleration" in government secrecy. The best part is how they interview self-interested historians, who want documents to, you know, write histories about, while not asking any of the officials involved why they're reclassifying sensitive documents released by Clinton. Yes, let's only ask those who have a vested interest in declassification!

Such transparent one-sidedness!

Throw in a few seemingly-ludicrous, chewy anecdotes of harmless documents that were reclassified, and you have the mental image of an out-of-control, sinister, paranoid presidency that the New York Times is so eager to paint for you. Never mind the numbers, it's the feelings that count.

Gitmo detainees knew 7/7 cell
British Muslim terrorists campaigning for the UK's High Court to order Jack “Inconceivable" Straw to petition for their release from Guantanamo knew the terrorist cell that planned the 7/7 London bombings. How freaky can you get? Given the recent history of English jurisprudence, I expect this news not to deter the High Court at all from ordering Straw to ask Bush to release them.

Magic Kingdom claims to arrest half a million border infiltrators a year
Bullshit, I say. What in the hell would posess half a million people to try to get into Saudi Arabia? The Saudican Dream? A tent with a well-manicured front dune, four wives who can't drive you anywhere but crazy, and a camel to spit on you. Free public beheadings and stonings-bring the kids!
