Is Abu Khabab A Shish Kabob?

Posted by Thunder Pig on July 28, 2008

A Pakistani intelligence official claimed al Qaeda weapons expert Midhat Mursi al Sayyid Umar, better known as Abu Khabab, was killed in this morning’s airstrike in South Waziristan.

“We believe he was killed in this strike,” a senior intelligence official told AFP on condition of anonymity. “It was his hide-out and information that has been shared with us says he was targeted in this strike.”

Six Pakistanis, including three foreigner terrorists, were reported killed in the airstrike, which hit either a madrassa or a home next to a mosque.

Abu Khabab and four other senior al Qaeda commanders were reported to have been killed in an airstrike in the town of Damadola in the Bajaur tribal agency in January 2006. The US military believed the safehouse in Bajaur, which was run by Taliban chieftain Faqir Mohammed, was sheltering Ayman al Zawahiri, al Qaeda’s second in command. Khabab and the other commanders were later found to be still alive.

The US Rewards for Justice Program has a $5 million bounty out for the capture of Khabab.

Khabab has a long history of working with al Qaeda’s secretive weapons of mass destruction program, which is known as al Zabadi, or “curdled milk.” Project al Zabadi is al weapons of mass destruction program.

HuffPo Tries To Soften The Blow For Edwards By Asking "Could Infidelity Save Your Marriage?"

Posted by Thunder Pig on July 28, 2008

And then, for the first time in 10 years, I silenced it. As Alex placed his hands on my hips, I knew with absolute clarity that I was about to have an affair. I knew it was a decision that could unravel even the strongest of unions. I never could have guessed that it would save mine.

I had felt this kind of passion only once before, when I first encountered the man who would be my husband. I was wandering my college campus, terrified, when a gorgeous man walked confidently up the hill. He saw me, and asked if he could help me find my way. “Well, yes,” I wanted to respond. “How about for forever? Does forever work for you?”

This is indeed sickening at how these lefties will excuse any crime committed by their heroes. I still remember how the Legacy Media published several stories with the same bent when Clinton got caught, and how they would wax eloquent on the beauty of telling lies, and how Great Men had a different set of needs than the rest of us poor peasants.
I think it is very funny that John Edwards (who they held up as a hero who stood by his woman during a life-threatening bout with breast cancer) was sleeping with another woman while his wife was fighting for her life, even fathering a bastard child. Yes, I know the “Politically Correct” term is love child. I just can’t help seeing Elizabeth Edwards fighting for her life while John Edwards was catting around just like Bill Clinton.
It is a hypocrsiy as delicious as the hypocrisy of “Green Guru” Al Gore with a Carbon Footprint the size of a mid-sized town!

When I was checkingout the headlines on Yahoo! News, there was an article with the title Expert advice on surviving the aftermath of an affair. Am i reading too much into this?

Jihadis Bring Polio Back To Children in Pakistan

Posted by Thunder Pig on July 28, 2008

Second polio case in Swat

ISLAMABAD: A second young girl has tested positive for polio in Swat valley, where militants have warned against vaccinations, health officials said on Sunday.

They said security fears were preventing health workers from carrying out a new anti-polio campaign. A three-day polio vaccination campaign for children aged less than five years is scheduled to begin in the NWFP on Monday.

But the campaign will not be carried out in two areas of Swat Valley, Kabal and Matta, due to ‘uncertainty’ and deteriorating security in recent days, said Dr Abdul Waheed Khan, a senior provincial health official.

A local pro-Taliban cleric, Fazullah, has said that polio vaccinations are a Western conspiracy to make Muslim children infertile.

Jihadis share the same Luddite tendencies as the anti-technology of hippies and certain circles of the conspiracy nuts who oppose vaccination of children because they fear science.

Tell me again why I am to believe Islam is a Religion of Peace?
