Justice purportedly caught up with some of the greedy companies responsible for the death of so many family pets last year.

But even the closing chapter of the contaminated pet food scandal could be filed under the unsolved mystery category.

“Two Chinese businesses and a U.S. company were indicted Wednesday in the tainted pet food incidents that killed dozens of animals last year and raised worries about products made in China.” (

Lockerbie: Chronicle of a Death Foretold

Governments lie. They do it all the time. And, much as we’d like to believe otherwise, the US government is no exception. There were times when we may have believed otherwise. But after Vietnam and Watergate, we know better.—The USS Vincennes: Public War, Secret War, July 1 1992, ABC News, Ted Koppel.

In some sense, the true and enduring mystery of the Lockerbie bombing is why so few people died. If one is willing to accept the official version of the tragedy, is it not indeed a miracle that an airliner flying from London to New York at Christmas time was actually half booked?

Send Code Pink Water Boy Jack Layton on one-way ticket to Afghanistan

Trying to brand his party as the sole anti-war option, Canadian New Democrat Party (NDP) leader Jack Layton took steady aim, pulled the trigger, and shot himself in both left feet on Thursday. 

The Taliban cannot be defeated, so let’s leave is Layton’s latest lament is his ongoing mantra to bring Canadian troops back home. 

Layton, whose timing on publicity is mostly precision perfect, blew it this time.

But how was Layton to know that just one day later, the infamous Abu Laith al-Libi, one of al-Qaeda’s top commanders in Afghanistan, would be killed?

  If this weren’t embarrassing enough, Smiling’ Jack fouled up on what must-have-been his swallow-the-history-of Afghanistan-in-just-one-sitting cramming lesson.

Canada and China join up on advanced nuclear reactor technology

One of the side benefits of the “monster deal” that made former President Bill Clinton’s Canadian buddy Frank Giustra one of the world’s largest uranium producers in a transaction ultimately worth tens of millions of dollars, is that Communist China indirectly benefits.

With Clinton’s help, Giustra is now the proud owner of highly coveted deposits of Kazakhstan uranium that could fuel nuclear reactors.

For his role in the deal, Clinton’s charitable foundation received a $31.3 million donation and a public pledge from Frank Giustra to give the William J. Clinton Foundation an additional $100 million.

Legal loophole keeps “next Mohammad Atta” at large

  When Clarence (Clancy) Prevost, was rewarded $5 million in an unpublicized closed-door ceremony in Washington last week, Adnan el Shukrijumah was likely counting his lucky stars.

  “Secretly authorized” by Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice last fall, the handsome reward from the State department’s “Rewards for Justice” program is the first and only one to date to a U.S. citizen related to the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

Turning the light off at Davos

Ever notice the fascination global elitists seem to have for the dark?

Barely mentioned in the mainstream media was the workshop from their annual gathering in Davos last year called “Dialogue in the Dark”.

“Dialogue in the Dark,” challenged high-performing business wags with the opportunity to explore how they interacted as a group when they were asked to assemble a Russian doll in pitch-black darkness.

Canadian Government in denial about the toll Lyme Disease is taking on Canadians

Imagine the mental agony of being told by Canadian doctors that you do not have Lyme disease but having a diagnosis in hand from American doctors saying that you do.

What do you then do if the Canadian federal government flatly denies your Access to Information request?

That’s the medical dilemma of Gordon Anderson, who asks “What are we going to do?”

Hugo Chavez, the cokehead?

Hugo Chavez“It all,” as the orphanage nuns used to tell us children, “comes out in the wash.”

Venezuela’s big-talking President Hugo Chavez has revealed that he regularly consumes coca—the source of cocaine.

In other words, save for the palace, the trappings and the fawning celebrities, Hugo Chavez seems to be just your average cokehead.

Kudos to savvy El Nuevo Herald reporter Casto Ocando for revealing one explanation where Chavez gets his bully personality.  It’s enough to restore your faith in the Mainstream Media.

The US Defense Secretary’s Cindy Sheehan moment

The next time US Defense Secretary Robert Gates gets a Cindy Sheehan moment against NATO forces in southern Afghanistan, accusing them of being ill-prepared to fight off an insurgency, he should keep it to himself.

  Gates, who unleashed a storm in harsh NATO criticism on Wednesday, was already back-pedaling on Thursday.

  But by the time he was rephrasing his intemperate remarks, Canadian, anti-troop, publicity hound New Democrat Party (NDP) leader Jack Layton had already seized upon the moment.

North Americans aiding Hekmatyar, a deadly misunderstanding

International terrorist Gulbuddin Hekmatyar, alleged recipient of an approximate $130,000 sent his way by former Kalamazoo-area congressman Mark Siljander, seems to have no trouble finding supporters on North American soil.

  Siljander, a former US delegate to the United Nations, was indicted yesterday for his part in an alleged terrorist fundraising ring that is accused of sending more than $130,000 to an al-Qaeda and Taliban supporter who has threatened U.S. and international troops in Afghanistan.

  “The money, sent to bank accounts in Peshawar, Pakistan in 2003 and 2004, was masked as donations to an orphanage located in buildings that Hekmatyar owned.” (, Jan. 16, 2008).

Pictures of chained-by-the-neck hostages should haunt moral supporters of Chavez & Sarkozy forever

It didn’t take Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez long to show where he is coming from on the recent release of two Colombian hostages by their cruel captors.

  In the space of two short days, Chavez has taken on the role as numero uno PR flak for the dreaded Revolutionary Armed forces of Colombia (FARC), the hemisphere’s biggest kidnapping force with 14,000 armed fighters.

While Colombian President Alvaro Uribe has managed to push the world’s most expert kidnapping contingent back into the jungle, Chavez attempts to bring them out as heroes.

Confession of an Iranian Terror Czar

“In fact, the public has the right not only to justice but to protection. For if, as a consequence of incompetence or cynical realpolitik, the true culprits are not tracked down and prosecuted, they and their government sponsors are free to orchestrate further murderous outrages. And experience shows that this is precisely what they do.”—David Horovitz, The Jerusalem Post, October 11 2007

Whatever happened to negotiations for the promised release of Ingrid Betancourt?

The silence of French President Nicolas Sarkozy is deafening on the tragic fate of French-Colombian politician Ingrid Betancourt.

No questions from Sarkozy yesterday when Clara Rojas, who was kidnapped in 2002 along with Betancourt and Consuelo Gonzalez de Perdomo, a former Colombian member of congress, taken hostage in 2001, were set free and flown to waiting family members in Venezuela.

Surely his question should have been: What about Ingrid Betancourt?
