America Could Have Killed Usama bin Laden — But Didn't  —  Because there is no shortage of things to yell about regarding the War on Terror, Iraq, Afghanistan, Homeland Security, and so on, deciding what to write about is always fun.  —  This week, I was going to yell about how the Bush …
Pundit Review Radio / BLACKFIVE:
CAN SOCOM PULL THE TRIGGER, EVEN ON BIN LADEN?  —  The incident involving MSG Troy Anderson and CPT Dave Staffel facing murder charges for killing a known terrorist worried me greatly.  Noone in the field considering pulling the trigger and ventilating a terrorist in what they understand …
Nicole Belle / Crooks and Liars:
Did The White House Miss A Chance To Catch OBL Again?  —  Boy, even FOX News analysts are calling the Bush Administration (and the military generals-Watch out!) incompetent.  —  I have to admit that this story seemed completely buried until I heard it this morning on the Stephanie Miller Show.

Satellite Photos Show Cleansing of Syrian Site  —  New commercial satellite photos show that a Syrian site believed to have been attacked by Israel last month no longer bears any obvious traces of what some analysts said appeared to have been a partly built nuclear reactor.

Cheney falls asleep during Cabinet meeting on wildfires.  —  During a cabinet meeting yesterday, Vice President Cheney fell asleep on camera while President Bush was discussing wildfires in California.  A Cheney spokeswoman "laughed it off," telling CNN that the vice president was "practicing meditation."
Andrew Sullivan / The Atlantic Online:
"Effective Liberty"  —  Two of the most chilling words you'll ever hear.  Crooked Timber wants the government policing speech to protect minorities.  At last they're honest about the true agenda of the left.  Notice this isn't about "hate-crimes".  It's about "hate-speech."

Andrew Sullivan / The Atlantic Online:
An Ex-Libertarian  —  Glenn Reynolds comes out of the closet and says he's no longer a libertarian.  After four years of his defending or ignoring every abuse of government power under the Bushies, this is hardly a surprise.  But the caricature of many freedom-lovers offered by Stephen Green is silly.

Atrios / Eschaton:
60s  —  I'm getting emails from various 60s era types which roughly suggest that it makes sense that people who lived through that era see everything through the prism of that era because lots of stuff happened.  I don't deny that the 60s were a significant historical and cultural time for the US …
