On Tuesday, the toll of American dead in Afghanistan passed 1,000, after a suicide bomb in Kabul killed at least five United States service members. Having taken nearly seven years to reach the first 500 dead, the war killed the second 500 in fewer than two. A resurgent Taliban active in almost every province, a weak central government incapable of protecting its people and a larger number of American troops in harm’s way all contributed to the accelerating pace of death

LIAR!


Throughout his campaign Senator Obama said he would begin troop withdrawal immediately and have all troops out of Iraq within 16 months. There has been no significant troop withdrawal since he has taken office and he has now changed his mind and said all troops will be out by December 2011, the same date that President Bush had agreed to have all troops out when he signed an agreement with Iraq in November.

Barack Obama is definitely not who you think he is, whatever that is.

Don't you think it more likely that Obama was born in Hawaii BUT that there is something else on his birth certificate (perhaps religious affiliation, name of father, etc.) that he does not want to have made public.

Europe facing strikes over austerity packages
Spain's parliament has passed a €15bn (£12.7bn) austerity package by just one vote, leaving the Socialist government nakedly exposed to popular fury.

Graves Mismarked at Arlington
By YEGANEH JUNE TORBATI

WASHINGTON — The remains in more than 200 graves at Arlington National Cemetery are incorrectly identified, the Secretary of the Army said Thursday. In some cases, remains were lost, and in others, more than one person was buried in a single grave.


“That all ends today,” Secretary John McHugh said at a Pentagon news conference, announcing a shakeup in the management of the cemetery.


An Army report found dozens of specific deficiencies in the day-to-day management of the cemetery, including an outdated record-keeping system that may have contributed to many of the errors.


Lt. Gen. R. Steven Whitcomb, the Army’s inspector general, said the majority of the mismarked graves are in sections 59, 65, and 66 of the cemetery. Two mismarked graves in section 60, an area that primarily contains the graves of the dead from Iraq and Afghanistan, were located and properly marked in the course of the investigation, General Whitcomb said. The inspection, which began in August 2009, found a total of 211 graves with mistakes.


“There could in fact be more,” the general said. “We need to bring the record-keeping at Arlington into the twenty-first century.”


Secretary McHugh announced a series of corrective measures, including creating a new position, executive director of the Army National Cemeteries Program, to oversee the cemetery and its staff. Kathryn Condon, previously the senior civilian for Army Materiel Command, will fill the position. The superintendent of the cemetery will report to Ms. Condon.


John C. Metzler, Jr., who has been superintendent since 1991, has announced his retirement, and an official reprimand of him was posted on the Army Web site.
