Osama Vows Won't Be Taken Alive

"I have sworn to only live free. Even if I find bitter the taste of death, I don't want to die humiliated or deceived," vowed Osama bin Laden.

His statement lacks the power of Martin Luther King's, "I have been to the mountain top and I have seen the promised land...Like anybody, I would like to live, longevity has it's place." And it is missing the defiance of James Cagney in numerous movies, "You'll never take me alive, copper!"

"Even if I find bitter the taste of death..." Isn't bin Laden the guy telling all the religious warriors that dying is the best thing that can happen to a Muslim? Back in 2002, al-Qaida spokesman, Sulaiman Abu-Ghaith said, "There are thousands of young people who look forward to death like Americans look forward to lfe." And now the taste of death is bitter rather than sweet as honey. Gee, what happened? Having second thoughts, Osama?

3 Former Terrorists Speak Out

The Northeast Intelligence Network and Sean Osborne has made the following available:

"...see with your own eyes and hear with your own ears three former Islamic terrorists, Walid Shoebat, Ibrahim Abdullah (born and raised in Dearborn, Michigan) and Zak Anani, as recorded in a 16 minute interview broadcast on Comcast News with host Greg Coy on the recent January 2006 CN8 News program: "Your Morning" (not a live-link, please copy/paste. IR)

All three former Islamic terrorists will tell you in first-person accounts about :

1. The Islamic terrorist plans, goals and recruitments of rank and file Muslims here in America, as well as around the world to engage in a continuing jihad against our way of life and the imposition of Islamic rule upon us all.

2. How we need to wage war on Islamic terrorism in the same manner as we did Nazi Germany; how our current level of retaliation is insufficient; their view that President George Bush is "not aggressive enough" in pursuing the current global War on Terror.

3. How all Islamic infrastructure including Islamic centers and mosques in America are actively involved in the cultivation of American-born Muslims to become jihadists of the Fallujah variety; how the majority of Muslim's -- "60 to 75%" of the Muslim population support the terrorist agenda and are responsible for collecting and sending miliions upon millions of dollars to support the terrorist war effort against us.

4. How there is "no question about it" that Islam is engaged in a war against us, that this is an integral part of the Islamic culture both here in America and the Muslim world as a whole.

All Three men will tell you that the vast majorty of American's are oblivious to these facts and we all need to wake up to the reality of the war being waged against us in our own backyards."

This is all very disturbing in light of the recent reports of lasers being aimed at airplanes at various airports across the US, but most especially those laser sightings emminating from the Muslim neighborhoods of Dearborn, Michigan. Apparently, according to American Congress for Truth, the lasers are being used as range-finders to establish the altitude and distance of planes taking off and landing.

Presidents Day

Monday, February 20, is Presidents Day in the United States. Although there are thousands of stores with special sales in honor of the day, and many people will have the day off from work, Presidents Day is not a Federal or National holiday. The idea was floated through Congress back in the 1960s, but never went anywhere. Federal workers ended up with more three day weekends while the rest of us have to go to work.

The actual holiday is February 22, and it's called Washington's Birthday to honor the first President of the United States of America. Without George Washington and his high personal standards and absolute belief in the Republic, we would most probably not have a country.

Washington was offered the Kingship of the new country and he turned it down. When he became President, many want to call him "Excellency" and many other titles of high entitlement, but Washington refused preferring the simple "Mr. President". When offered the position of "President for Life", again he refused after serving two terms of four years each. His example of only two terms held until Franklin D. Roosevelt served three terms and dying in the third. Presidents are now restricted to two terms by Constitutional Amendment.

Interesting facts of other Presidents include these:

  • George Washington had a hound dog named Sweet Lips.
  • When Martin van Buren was Vice-President, he presided over the Senate with loaded pistols.
  • Congress refused to led James Buchannon purchase Cuba for $90 million because they were afraid he might steal the money and run away.
  • Woodrow Wilson plated golf in the snow with black golfballs.
  • Herbert Hoover spoke fluent Chinese.
  • As a young lifeguard, Ronald Reagan saved 77 people from possible drowning.
  • Before becoming President, Jimmy Carter once saw a UFO. After being elected, while on a fishing trip, he was attacked by a killer rabbit.
  • At the age of eight years, Bill Clinton was viciously attacked by a sheep.

Though individually these facts may be meaningless, in the full light of hindsight, they may explain much more of presidential behavior than the records may indicate.
