NASA, unable to handle the situation revolving around astronaut Lisa Nowak, has asked the Navy to take back Ms. Nowak. This is the first time the Navy has been asked to take back an astronaut in NASA history, a 49 year history. So, she'll return to Navy duty while awaiting her day in court.
Captain America, dead at the age of 66. Who knew the cartoon hero would become political fodder. Sad, but true. "It's a hell of a time fo him to go. We really need him now," said co-creator Joe Simon, 93, after being informed of is brainchild's death, according to the Houston Chronicle. Captain America was originally an adversary for Hitler. His adventures are sold in 75 countries. The son of a naval intelligence officer stationed on Guantanamo Bay as a child, Ed Brubaker the series writer express his difficulty with killing off the Captain. The now 40 year old writer wants to "explore what the hero meant to the country in these polarized times." What a crock.
The President and First Lady have gone to South America for a weeks tour. The House and Senate Dem leaders wasted no time to pronounce their latest legislation attempts to end funding to the war. Pelosi announced the time table of bringing home the troops by fall 2008 would be tied to the appropriations bill pending to provide funding for the troops. The Senate is pushing legislation to demand troops back by March 2008. All this on the day of Gen. Petraeus' first press conference where he spoke to the fact that while there is no military solution alone to this war, the new strategies are showing signs of success and progress is being made. Determined for complete devastation to the Iraqi people, the Dems forge on.
I say let's get these legislations brought to the floors of the House and the Senate and get it all recorded on voice roll call votes. Bring it.
Another Muslim traitor in the armed services is being charged now on terrorism charges. He was determined to provide the enemy with locales of ships and how best to attack them. He is said to have celebrated when he originally heard of the attack on the U.S. Cole. His partner is the Muslim charged with attempting to attack the shopping mall around Christmas time with all the grenades. This traitor in today's paper, though, is never described as Muslim. The article tells his birth name and then his current name and that's as far as they go. Cowards.
My husband sent off a letter of recommendation for an Iraqi friend and colleague a few days ago. The man is trying to become a permanent resident here now. He lives in Michigan now and is working. He needs letters from Americans who can vouch for him as part of the process. My husband worked with him during his trip to Iraq in late 2002.
We wish him well.
