The Neocons’ Ties to the 9/11 Commission’s Report (tags)

WHEN TERROR IS JUST FINE (tags)
Now, suppose the Chicago gang kidnapped a couple of policemen and tried to ransom some of its members out of prison.

Would the government say it is up to the people of the ghetto to get rid of the gang?

Read Governor Schwarzenegger's Statement (tags)
The dedication of Williams’ book “Life in Prison” casts significant doubt on his personal redemption. This book was published in 1998, several years after Williams’ claimed redemptive experience.
