Notice the location of the USA in the bottom of the hourglass.

The speech by Iran’s President Ahmadinejad at the “World Without Zionism” conference contained some chilling text that was left out of the Main Stream Media’s account of it.

Why haven’t we seen this?

What the N.Y. Slimes left out.

Michelle Malkin has an story about what the N.Y. Slimes left out in reporting the death of Cpl. Jeffrey B. Starr.


On Wednesday, the NYTimes published a 4,625-word opus on the “2,000 dead” milestone–a “grim mark,” read the headline–on page A2. Among those profiled were Marines from the First Battalion of the Fifth Marine Regiment, including Cpl. Jeffrey B. Starr. Here’s an excerpt from the Times’ passage about Cpl. Starr:


Another member of the 1/5, Cpl. Jeffrey B. Starr, rejected a $24,000 bonus to re-enlist. Corporal Starr believed strongly in the war, his father said, but was tired of the harsh life and nearness of death in Iraq. So he enrolled at Everett Community College near his parents’ home in Snohomish, Wash., planning to study psychology after his enlistment ended in August.

But he died in a firefight in Ramadi on April 30 during his third tour in Iraq. He was 22.
Sifting through Corporal Starr’s laptop computer after his death, his father found a letter to be delivered to the marine’s girlfriend. ”I kind of predicted this,” Corporal Starr wrote of his own death. ”A third time just seemed like I’m pushing my chances.”


Last night, I received a letter from Corporal Starr’s uncle, Timothy Lickness. He wanted you to know the rest of the story–and the parts of Corporal Starr’s letter that the Times failed to include:


Yesterday’s New York Times on-line edition carried the story of the 2000 Iraq US military death[s]. It grabbed my attention as the picture they used with the headline was that of my nephew, Cpl Jeffrey B. Starr, USMC.

Unfortunately they did not tell Jeffrey’s story. Jeffrey believed in what he was doing. He [was] willing put his life on the line for this cause. Just before he left for his third tour of duty in Iraq I asked him what he thought about going back the third time. He said: “If we (Americans) don’t do this (free the Iraqi people from tyranny) who will? No one else can.”

Several months after Jeffrey was killed his laptop computer was returned to his parents who found a letter in it that was addressed to his girlfriend and was intended to be found only if he did not return alive. It is a most poignant letter and filled with personal feelings he had for his girlfriend. But of importance to the rest of us was his expression of how he felt about putting his life at risk for this cause. He said it with grace and maturity.

He wrote: “Obviously if you are reading this then I have died in Iraq. I kind of predicted this, that is why I’m writing this in November. A third time just seemed like I’m pushing my chances. I don’t regret going, everybody dies but few get to do it for something as important as freedom. It may seem confusing why we are in Iraq, it’s not to me. I’m here helping these people, so that they can live the way we live. Not have to worry about tyrants or vicious dictators. To do what they want with their lives. To me that is why I died. Others have died for my freedom, now this is my mark.”

What Jeffrey said is important. Americans need to understand that most of those who are or have been there understand what’s going on. It would honor Jeffrey’s memory if you would publish the rest of his story.


Mr. Lickness also told me: “Even more than a Marine, Jeff was a man of God. At a recent memorial service at Camp Pendleton for the 16 Marines from his unit killed in Iraq we got to meet the men who were with him when he died. They told us of his bravery under fire, his leadership, his humor and his humanity. America lost the best it has, but the family knows he’s with his Heavenly Father and we will see him again.”

Now you know what the Times left out. Now you know the rest of Corporal Starr’s story.

You can pay proper tribute to Corporal Starr here.

Thank God for men like him.

As for the Times, what do I always say? It’s always more informative for what it leaves out than for what it puts in.


The real abuse at Club Gitmo.

The real abuse at Gitmo is not being reported in the “Main Stream Media”. There is an article at fredericksburg.com that details the abuse the guards are taking from residents of “Club Gitmo”!


While we observed absolutely no evidence of torture of prisoners at Gitmo, it is clear that the daily atmosphere is rife with harsh abuse: The prisoners are constantly assaulting the guards.

Our young military men and women routinely endure the vilest invective imaginable, including death threats that spill over to guards’ families. All soldiers and sailors working “inside the wire” have blacked out their name tags so that the detainees will not learn their identities. Before that step was taken the terrorists were threatening to tell their al-Qaida pals still at large who the guards were.

“We will look you up on the Internet,” the prisoners said. “We will find you and slaughter you and your family in your homes at night. We will cut your throats like sheep. We will drink the blood of the infidel.”

That is bad enough, but the terrorist prisoners throw more than words at the guards. On a daily basis, American soldiers carrying out their duties within the maximum-security camp are barraged with feces, urine, semen, and spit hurled by the detainees. Secretly fashioned weapons intended for use in attacking guards or fellow detainees are confiscated regularly.

When food or other items are passed through the “bean hole”–an opening approximately 4 inches by 24 inches in the cell doors–the detainees have grabbed at the wrists and arms of the Americans feeding them and tried to break their bones.

When guards enter the cells to remove detainees for interrogation sessions, medical visits, or any number of reasons, detainees sometimes climb on the metal bunks and leap on the guards. They have crammed themselves under the bunks, requiring several guards to extract them. Some have attacked unsuspecting soldiers with steel chairs.

Determined to inflict maximum damage, detainees have groped under the protective face masks of the guards, clawing their faces and trying to gouge eyes and tear mouths.

Keep in mind that our soldiers–young men and young women–are absolutely forbidden from responding in kind. They are constrained to maintain absolute discipline and follow humane operating procedures at all times, at risk of serious punishment.


Hell… these bastards get better treatment than someone housed in the French prison system!

Zawahiri’s letter lays out al Qaeda’s strategy for victory in Iraq and the world. It demonstrates al Qaeda’s growing unpopularity, its weakness and its vulnerability to American intelligence.

Now is not the time to cut and run as the liberals suggest!

While Bush was detailing the threats posed to the free world by Islamic radicals, 90 members of the U.S. Senate were voting on some sort of a bill to place limitations on how American troops can treat these terrorists once they’re in custody. I think that an argument can be made that there should be no limitations on how those trying to keep us safe can keep a terrorist in captivity., Pull their damned fingernails out if you have to in order to get information that can save innocent lives. Screw them. They’re walking around in civilian clothing with bombs hidden under their coats. They want to kill as many women and children as they can. Don’t send them a message that they’ll be treated as honored guests once they’re captured.

I agree with Neil Boortz on this one.

Harriet Miers a decoy? Shh… don’t tell anybody.

There is something fishy about the nomination of Harriet Miers. Come on, Harry Reid and Chuck Schumer are happy with this pick! Is George W. Bush setting everybody up?

Here is my prediction. Harriet Miers may not make it to the Supreme Court. George W. Bush may have not even intended for her to get there. She may be a well chosen decoy. I say lets sit back and watch the liberals and conservatives destroy her while making themselves look bad in doing so. Maybe, after the side show is over, Bush can then put up another candidate that both left and right – will not dare to behave badly over, again.

How many times has he run circles around the Democrats?

I was reading a list of Ronald Reagan qoutes and thought this one applies to the current situation.

“The ultimate determinant in the struggle now going on for the world will not be bombs and rockets but a test of wills and ideas – a trial of spiritual resolve: the values we hold, the beliefs we cherish and the ideals to which we are dedicated.” Ronald Reagan
