Web Reconnaissance for 11/27/2007

A short recon of what’s out there that might draw your attention, updated throughout the check back often.

In the News: (Registration may be required to read some stories)
Signs Are Pointing South on Wall St. - Wall Street is betting on a recession. Investors in stocks and bonds are paying prices that indicate they believe a snowballing housing crisis and worsening credit crunch will soon tip the U.S. economy into a recession, analysts said. Many economists, including leaders of the Federal Reserve, don't... (READ MORE)

Politics Creates Odd Pair: Sanchez and Democrats - It may be among the strangest of political alliances: a former commanding general in Iraq, blocked from a fourth star and forced into retirement partly for his role in the Abu Ghraib prison scandal, and the speaker of the House, desperate to end a war that the general helped start. (READ MORE)

Restrained Optimism For Mideast Peace Talks - On the eve of President Bush's most ambitious effort to forge peace between Israelis and Palestinians, White House aides played down expectations for an immediate breakthrough, while Saudi Arabia, a key U.S. ally, made clear that it expects an aggressive administration attempt to broker a final... (READ MORE)

Congress's Historians Keep Record Straight - Want to know which senators have received the Nobel Peace Prize? Or who was the first African American to serve in the House? The answer is likely to be found in the historical offices that both chambers maintain, each with voluminous information about Congress. (READ MORE)

Bush, Maliki Sign Pact on Iraq's Future - President Bush reached a deal yesterday that is intended to lead to a more normalized, long-term relationship between the United States and Iraq by the time he leaves office, but it left unsettled the question of how many and how long U.S. forces would remain. (READ MORE)

Gates Urges Increased Funding for Diplomacy - Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates called yesterday for a "dramatic increase" in the U.S. budget for diplomacy and foreign aid, arguing that al-Qaeda does a better job than Washington of communicating its message overseas and that U.S. deployment of civilians abroad has been "ad hoc and on the fly." (READ MORE)

India Appeases Radical Islam - Friday's multiple bomb blasts in the northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh -- which killed 13 people and injured about 80 -- ought to give pause to those who see the world's largest democracy as a linchpin in the war on terror. India's leaders and diplomats seek to portray the country as a firebreak against radical Islam, or the drive to impose the medieval Arab norms enshrined in Shariah law on 21st century life. In reality, India is ill- equipped to fight this scourge. (READ MORE)

Bush Meets with Israeli, Palestinian - President Bush met separately yesterday with Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas in preparation for direct talks between the two leaders today in Annapolis and said that a deal would require "difficult compromises." (READ MORE)

Redskins' Sean Taylor Dies - Washington Redskins safety Sean Taylor died this morning in a Miami hospital, a day after he was shot in the leg during a home invasion. Taylor was 24 years old. Family friend and Taylor's former lawyer, Richard Sharpstein, said Taylor's father called him with the news at 5:30 a.m. (READ MORE)

Hamas Convenes Shadow Meeting - Hamas held a conference of its own yesterday, denouncing any Palestinian concessions at today's Annapolis peace summit as a "surrender of Palestinian rights." (READ MORE)

British Teacher Held Over Prophet 'Insult' - A British teacher in Sudan yesterday faced lashes and deportation as she languished in police custody, accused of insulting the Muslim prophet for allowing young children to name a teddy bear Muhammad. (READ MORE)

Obama's Bid to Get Oomph From Oprah - Oprah Winfrey will tour Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina with Sen. Barack Obama as his presidential-nomination campaign seeks to cash in on the momentum it has picked up in recent weeks, with polls showing him leading his Democratic rivals in Iowa and closing the gap in New Hampshire. (READ MORE)

Photo ID Law Didn't Hurt Turnout in Indiana - Voter turnout among Democrats improved slightly last year in Indiana, despite a new law requiring voters to show photo identification at the polls, according to a new report that comes months before the Supreme Court hears a case challenging the law. (READ MORE)

From the Front:
This War and Me: End of Mission: Part 1 - I recently returned from my third mission since I arrived in country ten months ago. This mission I was assigned as Truck Commander of a 'flex' truck in our Convoy Protection Platform. I basically sent messages back and forth to the Tactical Operations Center (where I normally work). It is the same 'dings' that I talk about while sitting on the other end. Everyone in the truck had a headset so we could talk to each other. The trucks were so noisy with everything going on that it was the best way to talk to each other effectively. We could also talk to the other trucks in the convoy. (READ MORE)

This War and Me: End of Mission: Part 2 - The PX was a good stop. The PX on Camp Liberty is a Super Wal-mart compared to the PX we have on Adder. There is a small bizarre and several little shops. I searched for just the right souvenirs for my children and found some things I think they’ll like. I had learned on the trip up that it is hard to see in the dark and a good, rugged tactical flashlight is invaluable. I however did place a value on it and bought a suitable flashlight for $75. It is supposed to be water-proof and crush-proof. Though it should survive being driven over by an up-armored HUMVEE, at this price I won’t test it. (READ MORE)

Sergeant Grumpy: Running on Java and Jolt - "It is impossible to know who to trust here - the best advice is to trust no one" That is surely the best advice I got from the outgoing team, and if I didn't hear it from CI-Roller dude, I am sure he would have said it. Everyone here you work with wants something from you and has some scam they are trying to run. People show up every day with some urgent information we should drop everything in order to discuss. Most of it is crap, or recycled intel they were able to sell to the last rotation, or the FOB down the road. Or worse, they are from the "enemy/insurgent/AIF/ACF/freedom fighter/Abu dirt-bag/take-your-pick" and they are trying to figure out what we already know. (READ MORE)

Amir Taheri: Iraq: Beyond the Drop in Violence - "A TORRENT OF GOOD NEWS": So The New York Times described the reports of a significant fall in violence in Iraq. But reducing all Iraqi news to measures of violence can hamper understanding of a complex situation. Those who opposed the overthrow of Saddam Hussein in 2003 prefer to focus on violence, for it has seemed to confirm their claim that the war was wrong. They've downplayed all good news from post-Saddam Iraq - the end of an evil regime that had oppressed the Iraqi people for 35 years; the return home of a million-plus Iraqi refugees in the first year after liberation; the fact that the Iraqis got together to write a new constitution and hold referendums and free elections - for the first time in their history - and moved to form coalition governments answerable to the parliament. The drop in violence is certainly a good thing. But other Iraq news, both good and bad, needs to be taken into account. (READ MORE)

Northern Disclosure: In a Dream! - Several times in my life I have been priviledged enough to be able to speak and have people listen. Some times what I have said influenced those that listened, ussually not in the way I had intented though. Recently I was contacted by my friend David over at Doonesbury who was working a research project for G Trudeau the creator and cartoonist of Doonesbury about what we do for music over here. I, along with a handful of others responed and spoke of what we listen to and why. (READ MORE)

IraqPundit: Empowering Iran - Iran's leaders must be feeling awfully flattered today. The papers report that the real reason behind the Annapolis conference is not the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, but Iran. WaPo's story says: "Iran's growing role in Iraq, where its Shiite brethren control the government, has also changed regional dynamics, particularly for the region's Sunni governments that decided to come to Annapolis." Iran is becoming more important each day, and it loves being the scariest bully in the 'hood. (READ MORE)

Fightin'6th Marines: 3/5 Marines meet unexpected man of the house - Marines stopped and knocked at a courtyard gate in Fallujah's Andaloos district. A little girl answered the door with an anxious look on her face. “Is the man of the house in?” asked Sgt. Ysac M. Perez, a squad leader with Company K, 3rd Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment, Regimental Combat Team 6. As if on cue, a little seven-year-old boy appeared and owned up to the title. The Marines greeted him with smiles and laughter. This scenario is not unusual, however, said Perez. (READ MORE)

Badger 6: Sergeant Samuel Nichols, United States Marine Corps - Some of you may remember this post regarding the four Marines we worked with that were killed in late July. That was a horrific attack that also left wounded. One of those wounded was Sergeant Samuel Nichols. His family has set up a blog here to report on his progress. Although Sergeant Nichols did not do Route Clearance, Katana Battery was a part of our Task Force if not tactically, then at least in spirit. Here is to Sergeant Nichols and his family. Let us hope for a recovery for this brave Marine. (READ MORE)

A Battlefield Tourist: COP Corregidor, al-Haswa - Southwest of Baghdad is an area called al-Hawsa, a Sunni region in the area of Iraq known as South Baghdad. It’s an area that is part of Iraq’s notorious “Triangle of Death”. It’s also the area that, up through October, was assigned to “B” Troop, 1-89 Cavalry, part of the 10th Mountain Division’s 2nd BCT. The unit established COP Corregidor as part of the US military’s new strategy to put smaller units among the population in an effort to stimulate cooperation. From this strategy shift, the “Concerned Citizens” movement began to take root across the area, following the successful template being used in Anbar Province. (READ MORE)

Michael J. Totten: An Edgy Calm in Fallujah - FALLUJAH, IRAQ – “You're probably safer here than you are in New York City,” said Marine First Lieutenant Barry Edwards when I arrived in Fallujah. I raised my eyebrows at him skeptically. “How many people got shot at last night in New York City?” he said. “Probably somebody,” I said. “Yeah, probably somebody did,” he said. “Somewhere.” Nobody was shot last night in Fallujah. No American has been shot anywhere in Fallujah since the 3rd Battalion 5th Marine Regiment rotated into the city two months ago. There have been no rocket or mortar attacks since the summer. Not a single of the 3/5 Marines has even been wounded. (READ MORE)

On the Web:
Jonathan H. Adler: The Lowdown on Doomsday - The secretary-general of the United Nations, upon issuing yet another global-warming report a couple of weeks ago, announced that "we are on the verge of a catastrophe." Kevin Rudd, Australia's just-elected prime minister, has said that fighting global warming will be his "number one" priority. And Al Gore, propelled by his Nobel Prize, still travels the world to warn of doom. His latest stop was the Caribbean, where earlier this month he told a gathering of the region's environmental officials that rising seas, the result of melting polar icecaps, would threaten their island paradise. (READ MORE)

Bret Stephens: Condi's Road to Damascus - Remember Nancy Pelosi's spring break in Damascus? Condoleezza Rice apparently does not. When the House Speaker paid Syrian strongman Bashar Assad a call back in April, President Bush denounced her for sending "mixed signals" that "lead the Assad government to believe they are part of the mainstream of the international community, when in fact they are a state sponsor of terror." Today, said sponsor of terror will take its place at the table Ms. Rice has set for the Middle Eastern conference at the Naval Academy in Annapolis, Md. (READ MORE)

Joel Kotkin: The Rise of Family-Friendly Cities -For much of the past decade, business recruiters, cities and urban developers have focused on the "young and restless," the "creative class," and the so-called "yuspie"--the young urban single professional. Cities, they've said, should capture this so-called "dream demographic" if they wish to inhabit the top tiers of the economic food chain and enjoy the fastest and most sustained growth. This focus--epitomized by Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm's risible "Cool Cities" initiative--is less successful than advertised. Cincinnati, Baltimore, Cleveland, Newark, Detroit and Memphis have danced to the tune of the hip and the cool, yet largely remain wallflowers in terms of economic and demographic growth. (READ MORE)

Dennis Prager: The World Doesn't Hate America, the Left Does - One of the most widely held beliefs in the contemporary world -- so widely held it is not disputed -- is that, with few exceptions, the world hates America. One of the Democrats' major accusations against the Bush administration is that it has increased hatred of America to unprecedented levels. And in many polls, the United States is held to be among the greatest obstacles to world peace and harmony. But it is not true that the world hates America. It is the world's left that hates America. (READ MORE)

Frank J. Gaffney, Jr.: Gang-Rape in Annapolis, Saudi Style - It is fitting that Condoleezza Rice chose the U.S. Naval Academy for the venue of tomorrow’s so-called Mideast peace conference. The reputation of that extraordinary institution in Annapolis has been sullied in recent years by a succession of rapes of young women. Despite official efforts to low-ball its significance, Ms. Rice’s conclave is shaping up to be a gang-rape of a nation on a scale not seen since Munich in 1938, when the British and French allowed Hitler and Mussolini to have their violent way with Czechoslovakia. (READ MORE)

Mike S. Adams: I'm Embarrassed to be White - The other day a skinny white boy came to me complaining about his teacher’s “anti-white racist remarks.” These remarks were made while the teacher was lecturing in a course here at UNC-White (Oops! I mean, UNC-Wilmington). After listing a bunch of bad things white people have done to black people, the professor stated in front of a racially-mixed audience: “You know … I’m actually embarrassed to be white.” The student thought this made his teacher look like an “anti-white racist.” But looks can be deceiving. In reality, like most white “liberals,” the teacher is really a white supremacist. (READ MORE)

Cal Thomas: Another Piece Summit - Just as Thanksgiving and Christmas come around with predictable regularity, so, too, do Middle East peace summits arrive near the end of modern presidencies. Bill Clinton had his and now the Bush administration is treading where previous fools have trod with what appears to be the diplomatic equivalent of a shotgun wedding in Annapolis, Md. These gatherings never bring peace between Israel and the Palestinians. That's because only one side wants peace. The other wants pieces of Israel... (READ MORE)

Thomas Sowell: That "Top One Percent" - People who are in the top one percent in income receive far more than one percent of the attention in the media. Even aside from miscellaneous celebrity bimbos, the top one percent attract all sorts of hand-wringing and finger-pointing. A recent column by Anna Quindlen in Newsweek (or is that Newsweak?) laments that "the share of the nation's income going to the top 1 percent is at its highest level since 1928." Who are those top one percent? For those who would like to join them, the question is: How can you do that? (READ MORE)

David Limbaugh: 2008: Holding Democrats Accountable on War - Some say Democrats won't have Iraq as an issue for the 2008 presidential campaign due to our dramatic turnaround there. Republicans should take it a step further and make it an issue themselves. Democrats have accused President Bush of politicizing the war any time he merely reported favorably on our progress or made a speech defining the enemy and explaining our multi-pronged strategy to defeat him. All the while, it was Democrats who were exploiting the war for partisan gain. (READ MORE)

Rich Lowry: Science Trumps Politics - The "sideshow" has become the main event. For years, we've been told that only stem-cell research that destroys human embryos is worth pursuing. Everything else is a diversion, driven by fanatical religious opposition to the progress of science. When President Bush sought legislation from Congress to advance research that didn't involve destroying embryos, he was rebuffed by the Democratic Congress. Eventually, he issued an executive order in June 2007 to promote stem-cell research "without violating human dignity or demeaning human life." (READ MORE)

Dinesh D'Souza: Debunking the Galileo Myth - Many people have uncritically accepted the idea that there is a longstanding war between science and religion. We find this war advertised in many of the leading atheist tracts such as those by Richard Dawkins, Victor Stenger, Sam Harris, and Christopher Hitchens. Every few months one of the leading newsweeklies does a story on this subject. Little do the peddlers of this paradigm realize that they are victims of nineteenth-century atheist propaganda. About a hundred years ago, two anti-religious bigots named John William Draper and Andrew Dickson White wrote books promoting the idea of an irreconcilable conflict between science and God. The books were full of facts that have now been totally discredited by scholars. (READ MORE)

Amanda Carpenter: Voter ID Fraud Doesn’t Exist Says ACORN - ACORN, a group with a track record of submitting fraudulent voter registration forms, says it is unjust to enact voter identification laws until it is proven that “voter impersonation fraud” is happening. The Association of Community Organization for Reform Now (ACORN) submitted an amicus brief, also called a “friend of the court” document, to the Supreme Court on November 13 in opposition to Indiana’s new voter identification laws. ACORN’s amicus brief disputes the existence of “voter impersonation fraud” in which a person would assume someone else’s identity in order to vote, but not “voter registration fraud” which ACORN employees have been found guilty of several times. (READ MORE)

Rich Galen: The Australian Election - The big news over the weekend was that a guy named Kevin Rudd won the election to be the Prime Minister of Australia. Rudd is the leader of the Labor (Labour?) Party and beat the incumbent John Howard whose Conservative Party had been in power for nearly 12 years. This was, of course, reported around the world as a defeat for … George Bush. EVERYTHING is reported around the world as a defeat for … George Bush. Rudd said he would do two things immediately: 1. Ratify the Kyoto Protocols on global warming; and, 2. Withdraw all of Australia's troops from Iraq. (READ MORE)

Jay Tea: Compare And Contrast - Currently in Boston, they're trying out a new program to cut down on gun violence. The police are going to homes and asking for permission to search the house for illegal guns. If any are found, they are confiscated -- but no charges are being filed. And if the residents refuse, the police (in theory) thank them for their time and move on. This has a lot of people concerned about the intrusiveness of the police, and potential violations of civil rights and intimidation of people. (READ MORE)

Wolf Pangloss: News from the Far End of the World - The far end of the world would be the Himalayan nations of Afghanistan, Pakistan, and perhaps India and Bangladesh. The big news is in Pakistan. Musharraf is stepping down as chief of the Army on Wednesday and taking the oath of office as a civilian president this Thursday. But first, he will make extended farewell visits to Pakistani troops in Islamabad and Rawalpindi from Tuesday through Wednesday. Musharraf’s successor as chief of the army is slated to be General Ashfaq Kiyani, the former head of the Pakistani spy agency Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI). (READ MORE)

Ilya Somin: Airport Security in Israel - I recently blogged about some of the failures of the Transportation Security Administration, the federal bureaucracy charged with ensuring airport security in the United States. It was therefore interesting for me to observe Israeli airport security in action during my recent trip to Israel. Israeli airport security is widely considered the best in the world. There has not had a successful hijacking of an airliner originating in Israel since 1969, and you can be quite sure that it's not because the terrorists haven't been trying hard enough. I noticed two obvious differences between the US and Israeli systems. (READ MORE)

Orin Kerr: The Law and Propriety of Posting YouTube Links - In response to yesterday's post including a link to a YouTube clip of a jazz performance, commenter "Siona Sthrunch" contends that such posts violate copyright law; are hypocritical; undermine the credibility of the blog; and even undermine our commitment to the United States Constitution: “As I've said many times, everyone knows, or should know, that lawyers posting on Volokh are effectively immune from any copyright suit. It's much too expensive to litigate against a bunch of lawyers. Kerr can freely post from now till doomsday and never fear paying any monetary penalties.” So is Strunch correct that I am guilty of "continual copyright infringement"? (READ MORE)

Lawhawk: Annapolis Unburdened - The Annapolis Middle East summit is underway, and the diplomats are unburdened by such details as Gaza being in the hands of an Islamic terrorist group dedicated to Israel's destruction, and which is a member of the Palestinian Authority with whom the Israelis are supposed to make peace with. Hamas supporters demonstrated in Gaza and called for the death of Israel, the US and called Abbas a traitor for even daring to talk with the Israelis. (READ MORE)

Ace of Spades: The Case of the Mustachioed Bride: "Just Married" Couple Stopped At Checkpoint, Bride Is Wanted Terrorist - Fruits of Islam: “SUSPICIOUS Iraqi troops ordered a ‘bride’ and ‘groom’ out of their car at a checkpoint on a highway north of Baghdad only to find they were wanted militants in disguise, the defence ministry said. Two other men travelling with the all-male “bridal couple” were also found to be wanted militants, the ministry said in a statement. It said the incident occurred near Taji, about 40km from Baghdad, but did not indicate when.” (READ MORE)

Ed Morrissey: The American Non-Empire - The charge of empire-building gets made repeatedly by critics of the United States, to the point where counterargument rarely occurs. This passivity comes in part from the unquestionable international military reach of the US and its commercial, cultural, and political influence around the world. However, the term "empire" means much more than influence and reach, as Jonah Goldberg notes in today's Los Angeles Times: The age of empire has long since passed. Real empires - not the pseudoempire that critics accuse America of building - invaded and colonized territory, putting them and their peoples under a single head of state, usually a monarchy. (READ MORE)

Dave Ross: The Most Important Thing of 2008 - The central tenet of my life and the universe-- at least this week-- is that the most important thing in the world is to prevent Hillary Clinton from becoming president. Although from the standpoint of my personal profit and reputation it would be a good thing if Hillary become president, since I am working on a 1984ish dystopian horror fiction knockoff about the beginning of her fourth term in office entitled (tentatively) "Nanny" I consider it hardly an exaggeration that a second Clinton presidency would be the beginning of the end for freedom and civil liberties as we know it, but probably also the American way of life. (READ MORE)

Bill Roggio: Doku Umarov declares Islamic Caucasus Emirate - While al Qaeda in Chechnya and the greater Chechnya rebel movement has suffered a serious setback over the past two years, a nucleus of the terror movement remains. Doku Umarov, one of the last remaining original leaders of the Chechen rebellion and a close associate of al Qaeda, has declared an Islamic emirate in the greater Caucasus region. On November 22, the Kavkaz Center, an al Qaeda-linked website promoting the jihad in Chechnya, published Umarov's declaration of the Caucasian Emirate. Umarov, who is now the "Amir of Mujahideen in Caucasus," emphasized the importance of implementing sharia, or Islamic law, and the responsibility of Muslims to "fight the infidels." (READ MORE)

Confederate Yankee: TNR's Last Stand? - 1/18 Infantry, Second Brigade Combat Team, First Infantry Division, rotated out of Iraqi several weeks ago to their home base in Schweinfurt, Germany. This included noted fabulist Scott Thomas Beauchamp. Whether Beauchamp is still in Germany or has been allowed home on leave is rather irrelevant; he matters quite little now that he has established that he will not support his dark fantasies on the record. What does matter is that Franklin Foer and The New Republic have lost yet another excuse in their continued failure to account for the actions of the magazine's editors since "Shock Troops" was first questioned July 18, over four months ago. Now that Beauchamp is out of the war zone and back in western civilization, Foer is unable to claim that he military is muzzling his communication or that of his fellow soldiers. (READ MORE)

Don Surber: We won - NY Sun: Negotiations have begun on ending the occupation of Iraq by Jan. 20, 2009. The headline in the New York Sun this morning read: “Talks Are Set on Ending Battle of Iraq.” This may be the story of the year. Reported Nicholas Wapshott: “Lieutenant General Douglas Lute, quietly announced that the American and Iraqi governments will start talks early next year to bring about an end to the allied occupation by the close of Mr. Bush’s presidency.” (READ MORE)

Allahpundit: Crisis, day two: Teddy bear blasphemer fired, grilled for five hours, facing sedition charge - Gordon Brown claims she hasn’t been charged with anything yet but there are rumors of a blasphemy charge and a sedition charge on the way if witnesses “bring new elements to light.” Which, I guess, explains why they’re grilling her for five hours about a teddy bear. “When the mother-of-two was arrested on Sunday an angry mob, chanting death threats, gathered outside her lodgings at Unity High School as she was led away by police…She is now facing charges under sharia law for ‘insulting ideology and religion’…” (READ MORE)

Jules Crittenden: Jerusalem by Halves - Israel Matzav on the deal shaping up in Annapolis. He doesn’t like it. He’s not the only one. On the other side of the ledger, al-Jazeera’s glum and so is Hamas. Here’s how Gaza plans to express itself during the talks. Friedman at Stratfor weighs in with some history, complexities, pitfalls and goals: (READ MORE)

Bryan Preston: John Edwards, health care jackboot - Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama have of late engaged in a back-and-forth over their respective health care plans. Now John Edwards is swinging into the fray with a plan that is best summed up in a single word: Totalitarian. Not making this up. “I’m mandating healthcare for every man woman and child in America and that’s the only way to have real universal healthcare. Evertime you go into contact with the healthcare system or the govenment you will be signed up.” (READ MORE)

McQ: Sanchez and the Democrats - The sudden relationship can be summed up neatly by the old Arab proverb: “The enemy of my enemy is my friend.” Dale has written about it and he and I have discussed it on a podcast. That is the suddenly outspoken retired LTG Ricardo Sanchez blasting the administration about the conduct of the war in Iraq. Of course what Sanchez never does is take any responsibility for his role in that war. For instance: “Other senior military figures have turned on the White House, but none as senior as Sanchez, whose command of coalition forces in Iraq in 2003 and 2004 coincided with an explosion of violence, the emergence of a brutal insurgency and a prison-abuse scandal that still haunts the war effort.” (READ MORE)

Dan Riehl: Paris Burning, Again - It looks like rioting is becoming something of a seasonal sport among France's immigrant population. Bottom line, two young, I hesitate to use the word, men, on a motorcycle collided with a police car, died, and the lower income suburbs think it was intentional, and or, that the police didn't do enough in the aftermath. What it looks like is a growing political class waiting for an excuse to riot. Some have been reported to be firing guns at police, with some 60 - 70 cops injured in what is now two nights of rioting. (READ MORE)
