Revisiting the Pat Tillman Story, and McChrystal’s Role

Due to an explosive interview in Rolling Stone magazine, our top commander in Afghanistan, Gen. Stanley McChrystal, has been ordered home to explain why he criticized the president, made fun of Joe Biden, and called the White House staff a bunch of clowns. He should be called home.

My title came from my marriage to my husband, who by the way is a direct descendent of the Prophet Mohammed, and he has both a temporal but also a spiritual role in the eyes of many, not only in Jordan, but in the Muslim world as well, as a direct descendent of the Prophet Mohammed, peace be upon him.

Gloria Steinem Gives Sarah Palin A Vocabulary Lesson
Gloria Steinem, an icon of the women’s movement, has criticized Sarah Palin for
trying to brand herself as a feminist.

will flash digital commercials. Who is this for? People who want something else
to read while driving and texting?- Jay Leno

defense, people are saying, “Wait a minute, the president has always had his own
