Nasty Letters To Crooked Politicians

As we enter a new era of politics, we hope to see that Obama has the courage to fight the policies that Progressives hate. Will he have the fortitude to turn the economic future of America to help the working man? Or will he turn out to be just a pawn of big money, as he seems to be right now.

Chicken Chimp Junta Demands Newsweek Slay the Messenger--Rumball's yellow streak in full display

Pakistan dismisses Newsweek retraction on Koran - Yahoo! News: "SLAMABAD (Reuters) - Pakistan dismissed on Tuesday as inadequate an apology and retraction by the Newsweek magazine of a report that U.S. interrogators at Guantanamo Bay had desecrated the Koran.

The report in the magazine's May 9 issue sparked protests across the Muslim world, from Afghanistan, where 16 people were killed and more than 100 injured, to Pakistan, India, Indonesia and Gaza.

'The apology and retraction are not enough,' Information Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmed told Reuters. 'They should understand the sentiments of Muslims and think 101 times before publishing news which hurt feelings of Muslims.'

The magazine retracted the story on Monday.

Newsweek said in its May 23 edition that the information had come from a 'knowledgeable government source' who had said a military report on abuse at Guantanamo Bay had found interrogators had flushed at least one copy of the Koran down a toilet in a bid to make detainees talk.

But the source later told the magazine he could not be certain he had seen an account of the Koran incident in the military report and that it might have been in other investigative documents or drafts, Newsweek said.

The Newsweek retraction came as the White House, the Pentagon and the State Department all strongly criticized the report and said it had damaged Washington's image abroad."
