UK slo-mo suicide takes a new twist
Tony Blair's government has now dropped the idea of closing down terrorist-inciting mosques. Amazingly, much of the opposition to the proposed and now-discarded commonsensical measure comes from the police chiefs themselves. A more politically correct bunch, I've never seen. Here's a previous post I did about stultifying political correctness among UK law enforcement elites.

The Home Office spokesman said 66 people and organizations had responded to a consultation on the proposal, and most were opposed.

The Association of Chief Police Officers also opposed the idea, saying it risked alienating ordinary Muslims and driving extremism underground.

Rev. Graham Sparkes of the Baptist Union of Great Britain said Baptists had suffered persecution and imprisonment in the past in their efforts to “secure control over what was preached, where it could be preached, and who could preach."

“We would be very sensitive toward any proposals that put these hard won freedoms under threat," Mr. Sparkes said in a statement to the government.

Sir Iqbal Sacranie, general-secretary of the Muslim Council of Britain, said mosques were being branded wrongly “as incubators of violent extremism, while the social reality is that they serve as centres of moderation."

“The bombers were indoctrinated by a subculture outside the mosque," he said.

The proposal had been part of the government's anti-terrorist proposals introduced after the July 7 transit attacks in London, in which four suspected suicide bombers killed 52 bus and Underground passengers.

Widespread TSA theft-this is security?!
The Transportation Security Administration has moved from being useless to being actively hostile to Americans' peace of mind. Read this absurdity and marvel at our government's incompetence to hire honest and upright people:
Two airport screeners at Kennedy Airport -- both of them women -- have been arrested and charged with stealing the wallet of a man who was going through security screening.
They then allegedly went on a spending spree with the man's money.

Eyewitness News Long Island Reporter Lauren DeFranco has the story.

"It's heartwrenching ... my social security cards, my id cards."


For William Canberry, a simple trip to Key West turned into a monumental hassle.

When his baggage arrived late, Canberry realized the contents of his wallet had been stolen.

William: "They rifled through it. ... They didn't just find it accidentally."

The retired New York City Firefighter immeadiately cut his vacation short, worried and devastated by the loss.

William: "My identification from the fire department, my retirement badge -- things I'll never see again."

The investigation into the theft at JFK turned up shocking surveillance photos.

Sources say TSA Screeners Ronniki Ack and Yvette Reynolds were still in uniform and caught red handed using the stolen ATM card at various banks.

Turkey finally allowing some discussion of its Armenian genocide
After decades of stonewalling and punishment for Turkish thoughtcriminals who dared to question the official line on the Armenian genocide, Turkey is finally allowing a little light in. It couldn't come too soon; we can thank the EU for pressuring Turkey into allowing the vaulted door to creak open a few inches and let a little sunlight into their closet full of skeletons.
13.12.05. Armenian communities, which include significant numbers in the New York metro area, have long been anguished over Turkey`s refusal to admit its role in the 1915 massacres of Armenians in the waning days of the Ottoman Empire. At long last, Armenians should take some grim satisfaction at reports of an increasing willingness among Turks to acknowledge what their government has steadfastly denied: Ottoman Turks committed the first documented genocide in human history.

As Turkey adopts democratic reforms to bolster its application for membership in the European Union, its government is allowing open discussions about the genocide for the first time, including a conference in Istanbul organized by a group of historians and other academics.

The term `genocide` - systematic
massacres aimed at wiping out an entire ethnic group - was first used after the Armenian atrocities, precursors of the 20th Century`s worst nightmares. Such was the stigma attached to genocide after the Holocaust in Nazi Germany that Turkish leaders suppressed any move to acknowledge the Armenian massacres.

That may change now, not least because Turkey wants to be included in the EU, a considerable economic advantage. Its EU application may be held up if Turkey doesn`t acknowledge its responsibility in that genocide, as Germany has for the Holocaust and Japan for its atrocities in the Pacific during World War II. It`s time for Turkey to let the light in.

Porter Goss warns Turkey of impending airstrikes on Iran, Syria
The source is Syrian, so take it for what it's worth.
WASHINGTON, The heads of both the Central Intelligence Agency and the Federal Bureau of Investigation have recently visited Turkey, leading to intense speculation in the Turkish media about the topics discussed with Turkish officials. On Monday CIA Director Porter Goss met with Milli Istihbarat Teskilati, or MIT, intelligence service officials for four-and-a-half hours in Ankara. Goss reportedly brought three dossiers on Iran with him. Accompanied by a large delegation Goss met with MIT Undersecretary Emre Taner and General Staff Intelligence Director Lt. Gen. Arslan Guner. Goss also visited Turkish Security Director General Gokhan Aydiner and Security Intelligence Director Sabri Uzun.

Topics discussed at the meetings included the fight against the Kurdish Worker's Party, or PKK in northern Iraq, al-Qaida and possibilities for exchanging intelligence on Iraqi insurgents. Cumhuriyet reported that Goss allegedly asked for Turkish support for the Bush administration's policies on Iran's nuclear activities, telling Turkish officials that Iran has nuclear weapons, a situation that created a huge threat to Turkey and other countries in the region.

Goss said that Iran sees Turkey as an enemy and will "export its regime," warning Ankara to be ready for a possible U.S. aerial operation against Iran and Syria.On Tuesday Goss was driven in his armored BMW escorted by vehicles equipped with electronic jamming equipment to a meeting with Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

Turkish officials reportedly told Goss of three topics of concern. First, that European tolerance for terrorist groups linked to Turkey must be stopped. The officials also requested that the United States pressure Belgium to extradite Fehriye Erdal, suspected of the 1996 assassination of Ozdemir Sabanci and two colleagues. The final Turkish request was U.S. assistance in halting broadcasts of the Kurdish Roj TV station from Europe.
