TIME’s homage to ‘Saint of Democracy’ is an Insult to Filipinos (tags)

“ it is not only disgusting, it was also very insulting” The Philippine Peasant Support Network (Pesante)-USA decried today the TIME magazine homage to the late former President Corazon Aquino .

Richard Lugar wrote in a comment published by Time.

Among them: his personal politics and views, the disastrous realities his administration will inherit, and, of course, unpredictable future crises. But the best immediate indicator of what an Obama administration might look like can be found in the people he surrounds himself with and who he appoints to his Cabinet. And, frankly, when it comes to foreign policy, it is not looking good.

Obama, McCain urged to unite against terrorism (tags)

In spite of reports in The Washington Post and Pakistan's DAWN newspaper that Pakistani troops fired at a U.S. helicopter that was raiding an Al Qaeda safehouse in Southern Waziristan, the defence establishments in the two countries denied the incident.

But somehow House Majority Leader Tom DeLay thinks this is all unfair.
