Al Hakimâ€™s resume is truly impressive. Heâ€™s an Ayatollah and a son of an Ayatollah. He speaks fluent Farsi â€“ having spent half his entire life living in exile as an honored guest of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards. As a dedicated theocrat â€“ he allied his sectarian legions of Iraqi exiles with the Iranian army in the Iran-Iraq war.

Although given little public credit at the time, or since [nice!], many of the 126 House Democrats who spoke out and voted against the October 2002 resolution that gave Bush authority to wage war against Iraq have turned out to be correct in their warnings about the problems a war would create.
The Pentagon is invoking emergency authority to expedite funding of a war-crimes-court compound at its Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, naval base, Deputy Defense Secretary Gordon R. England has informed Congress.
Defense spokesmen would not say when, if ever, the Pentagon had last invoked similar authority. Nor would they specify which military construction already approved by Congress would be frozen to fund the court project, which could cost as much as $125 million, according to U.S. government documents.
Were the Republicans working hard, or hardly working:
The House ethics committee has been working hard to determine whether Republicans covered up Mark Foley's electronic messages to male former pages, but even 12-hour workdays will not bring conclusions by Election Day.
