Sydney Morning Herald 1-27-04

The Central Intelligence Agency's outgoing chief weapons inspector, David Kay, has concluded that the US was almost certainly wrong in its pre-war belief that Iraq had any significant stockpiles of weapons of mass destruction.

Royal Canadian Mounted Police  raid a hair-raising tale
Toronto Star, Canada - Jan 24, 2004

….Last week, for example, a group of decorated CIA veterans demanded that Congress go after the administration for this "unprecedented and shameful event in American history (that) in our professional judgment, has damaged U.S. national security."

But President George W. Homeland Security has said, "I don't know if we're going to find out the senior administration official. I don't have any idea."

Why should he? U.S. newshounds have hardly been baying for his blood.

Don't get me wrong: Canadian journalists are not perfect. But, considering that any one of us could land in jail for doing our jobs, we sure have more guts than they do.

Unleash our press pack on Washington. See what we'd do…

Even a Bush supporter was impressed. ''I just kept thinking of the president [Bush] up there and trying to talk like that,'' said registered Republican Tim McClellan, 48, of Pompano Beach. ``I just couldn't picture it. [Clinton] is a really articulate guy.''

Bush stole the presidential election: Cherie
Press Trust of India
London, January 24

In a forthright view that is likely to embarrass her husband, Cherrie Blair, wife of Prime Minister Tony Blair, is reported to have observed that George W Bush "stole" the US presidential election from Al Gore.

"Cherie Blair still believed that Bush had stolen the White House from Gore," author Philip Stephens wrote in his book Tony Blair: The Making of a World Leader...


Subject: Use picture for Science-website

Dear Lisa Casey,

We would like to ask your permission to use one of the great pictures from your website on our own site. It is the image of a palestinian scarf with a jewish kippa on top. We are a non commercial broadcasting organisation in the Netherlands, with a weekly radio broadcast on science news. On our website we give extra information about our programs. This week we will interview the founder and director of the Center for Research on Peace Education in Haifa (Israel) about ways of changing the animosity on both sides. We think the picture beautifully illustrates this subject. Hopefully we can use the picture free of charge, because we do not have a budget for license fees, and would have to look for an alternative otherwise. If using the picture is a problem, please let me know.

Thank you very much in advance!

Kind regards,
Jair Stein I VPRO Noorderlicht Radio

Dear Jair Stein,

I would be honored to have you use my graphic. The graphic depicts, for me, the only way to find peace in the Middle East. Sometimes a picture is worth more than a thousand words.

I wish you and yours well.
