‘Everybody Draw Mohammed’ Page Briefly Vanishes Due to Facebook Glitch

From Fox News:

The original “Everybody Draw Mohammed Day!” Facebook page — with more than 80,000 followers — vanished briefly from the website Thursday, causing some users to accuse the social networking giant of censorship before the controversial page reappeared on the site.

Facebook officials said a “small technical issue” prevented users from accessing the page for a “very short period” of time.

“Once alerted to the problem, we resolved it as quickly as possible,” the company said in a statement to FoxNews.com. “We want Facebook to be a place where people can openly discuss issues and express their views, while respecting the rights and feelings of others.”

If this was communist China, or Islamic Iran this story would never have gotten out to the general population. And Facebook probably would have blocked the page from the get go. Thank God we live in The United States Of America, where we still have freedom of speech, for now anyway. If Obama and his ilk get their way, the only speech that will be allowed will be speech that they agree with and visa versa. I agree with Ms. Norris, get over yourselves Muslims.

Yemen crucial to Obama’s vow to defeat Al Qaeda

Bye, Bye Yeman, Bye, Bye American Aide, Hello, killing nut jobs…wait, Obama isn’t going to do that, is he?? I’m not even sure we will be cutting off aide to Yemen. How do I know we send aide to Yemen? Because we send aide to ABSOLUTELY EVERYONE!!! Read on MacBeth.

From the Christian Science Monitor:

The US embassy in Yemen has closed one day after President Obama confirmed that Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the failed Christmas Day bomber of Northwest Flight 253, was trained and equipped in Yemen. The move points to the threat posed by Al Qaeda in Yemen. Already, Al Qaeda has struck the US embassy in Yemen once.

In 2008, it laid siege to the embassy, attacking it with mortars rounds and two car bombs – one detonated outside the gates and the second rammed into the embassy’s ramparts. The embassy was not breached, though 13 Yemenis and six terrorists were killed.

For Mr. Obama, though, the question of Al Qaeda in Yemen goes much deeper than Sunday’s decision to shutter the embassy temporarily. More even than Afghanistan, perhaps, Yemen goes to the core of his antiterrorism philosophy.

I give blame where blame is do in this situation. I blame everybody in the government. We have opened ourselves up to global attack by: 1)trying to spread democracy across the world and 2)being part of the UN. Now we have to deal with this situation. So, yea, Obama and his crappy administration have to pick up the sword and fight. But he will not. Oh, and besides, ya never bring a knife to a gun fight.

Wealthy, quiet, unassuming: the Christmas Day bomb suspect

I know that this story is still evolving and I do not like to report on something until I can get “the rest of the story”. Buuuttt, this news article has some juicy background on this nut job terrorist.

From The Independent:

With his wealth, privilege and education at one of Britain’s leading universities, Abdul Farouk Abdulmutallab had the world at his feet – able to choose from a range of futures in which to make his mark on the world.

Instead, the son of one of Nigeria’s most important figures opted to make his impact in a very different way – by detonating 80g of explosives sewn into his underpants, and trying to destroy a passenger jet as it came in to land at Detroit Airport on Christmas Day.

As he was charged by US authorities last night with attempting to blow up an airliner, a surprising picture emerged of the would-be bomber.

Walter Reed performs rare transplant of pancreas cells

From The Washington Post;
You have got to read this article. This is just too cool. God, bless him and his loved ones for going through all this.

A 21-year-old airman who was shot in the abdomen at a remote outpost in Afghanistan last month underwent a rare procedure at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in which cells were rescued from his severely damaged pancreas and transplanted into his liver.

The procedure has been done only about 200 times, and almost always for a severe disease called pancreatitis. Surgeons at Walter Reed think this was the first case of pancreatic “autotransplantation” after a traumatic injury, although that claim could not be independently verified.

The operation involved removing the airman’s pancreas at Walter Reed; flying the organ to Miami, where the cells were extracted and preserved; and then returning the cells to Washington, where they were infused into the patient’s liver. There the cells become permanent residents, secreting hormones into the bloodstream and performing part of the function of the original pancreas. The process occurred over less than 24 hours and involved about 60 people.

There is just so much about this story that is heartwarming and wonderful. This is God, folks, out of tragedy, comes hope. Out of a hateful, violent act, comes new technology, and a new way of life. I don’t care how many of us “infidels” those disgusting murderers try to kill, they will never crush our spirits, and we will prevail.

Up to 56,000 more contractors likely for Afghanistan, congressional agency says

I know that libs and conservatives alike have a problem with the surge. But, since WWII we have waged war with the intent of “nation building”. Contractors build things, so there you go.

From The Washington Post:

The surge of 30,000 U.S. troops into Afghanistan could be accompanied by a surge of up to 56,000 contractors, vastly expanding the presence of personnel from the U.S. private sector in a war zone, according to a study by the Congressional Research Service.

CNN Considers Political Correctness as a Factor in Ft. Hood Shootings?

The Major was and is a Major “Nut Job Muslim Terrorist” period. Case, closed, everything else done. All you Left Wing Socialist, Commie Bastards get over this one.
From Newsbusters:

On Wednesday’s Situation Room, CNN’s Brian Todd actually considered that political correctness prevented earlier action against Ft. Hood shooter Nidal Hasan. Despite referencing “a senior investigative official who…said he has never heard any indication…that Hasan got any favorable treatment…before this shooting,” Todd also cited three others who were certain of the political correctness factor.

The CNN correspondent did not lead his report with any mention of the possible PC treatment the Muslim army major might have received, a graphic on-screen hinted what was to come later in the report: “Hasan’s Contacts & Behavior Examined: ‘Political correctness’ a possible concern.”

Netanyahu Condemns U.N. for Allowing Ahmadinejad to Deliver Address

Good for him. I wish our elected cockroaches would follow his lead. But they won’t.

From Fox News:

Holding aloft evidence of Hitler’s Final Solution, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Thursday railed against Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad for his denial of the Holocaust and scolded the United Nations for allowing Ahmadinejad to speak during its opening session of the 64th U.N. General Assembly.

With detailed reminders in hand of the war that sent 6 million Jews to their deaths in concentration camps, including construction blueprints for Auschwitz, Netanyahu took his turn at the dais to recall the agreement within the world body to create the Jewish state and express astonishment at what he witnessed a day earlier in that organization’s great hall.

He commended those who boycotted Ahmadinejad’s speech, but condemned those who allowed it.
