Night Flashes

Debka is reporting that 'Morocco and Spain have smashed a large al Qaeda network which was gearing up for fresh attacks in West Europe. ome strikes were planned for American, Israeli and Jewish targets. At least 20 suspects were arrested in Morocco, 10 in Spain and several more secretly in the UK, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands and Denmark. In Morocco, they were picked up in Rabat, Agadir and Casablanca. Some were members of the armed forces. In Spain, the arrests were made in Alicante, Granada and Murcia. This is one of the biggest al Qaeda rings ever to be broken up. Our sources add the network took its orders from an al Qaeda command center in Syria. Links between the Middle East, Moroccan and Belgium cell commanders were maintained by means of secret rendezvous in Turkey.' ... GayPatriot notes with regret the retirement of Arizona congressman Jim Kolbe: 'When I lived in D.C., I knew Jim and socialized with him on occasion. I once even wrote a speech for him on free trade. Jim is a good man and a loyal Republican. He did a great job representing the citizens of Arizona’s Eighth District for over twenty years.

Pamela at Atlas Shrugs has a chilling report on an upsurge in atrocities in Darfur, Sudan - and China's complicity: 'A monthly UN report on the situation in Sudan's strife-torn Darfur region spotlighted an upsurge in killings of civilians, including children, and rape of women during the month of October. The report by UN chief Kofi Annan, which was unveiled here this week, said that despite government pledges to launch joint military and police patrols on highways to improve security.

For everyone to be murdered?' ...
