Syria Says US Behind Attack On Own Embassy 13 Sep 2006 Senior Syrian government official have accused the US of being behind Tuesday's assault on its own embassy in downtown Damascus. A Baath party official, speaking on the condition of anonymity, told WorldNetDaily, "We in the government are 100 percent sure America was behind this attack, which is not the same as other attacks by Islamic groups." He explained, "Only the Americans can succeed in carrying out an attack just 200 meters from President [Bashar] Assad's residence in the most heavily guarded section of Syria."
Had to put this up--I'm in the middle of security upgrade Hades at the moment but this has to be posted.

Heads-Up for Bush?
9.14.06 11:45 am: Hey, George! Remember Afghanistan and the Taliban (and 9/11)?
The October freeze will soon be setting in as NATO pleas for help rejected so what's becoming George's Afghani misadventure is in danger of ending up like the 19th century route of the British--and that was an imperialist disaster, aka a massacre.
You'd think our Western "leaders" would've taken that lesson to heart (if any of them had one to take it to.)
Matt Taibbi has a great article about Bush's response to 9/11--and the world we think we live in--called The Low Post: Why Ask Why? which I hope you'll read if you haven't. Why indeed.
From the SO'W Just-So-You-Know Dept: Fareed Zakaria is a Trilateral Commission member, fyi, as are many of our media big *cheeses--which may help to explain the why of Zakaria's article sited in Taibbi's article.

1:00 pm: Where to send George and his Crew? Astronomers have found a new, distant FLUFFY planet, HAT-P-1, which orbits its star (our Sun is a star, as you know) once every 4.5 days. It's located in the constellation Lacerta. Sounds about right.
A "FRESH AIR" Heads-Up: Tomorrow, Friday (in this market--not sure about yours) the program is about the 14-year battle to make public the FBI files on John Lennon. "The US vs John Lennon" should be an interesting listen--turn on your radio.
As an early Beatles and Lennon fan (I saw them perform in Atlanta, second US tour) this hit really broke my heart--and I don't mean the Top 40.
