Douglas Hanson asks some questions on the yellowcake connection:
Speaking of dealing in commodities, this whole affair brings us back to square one and Mary McCarthy. One of her previous employers was Beri, SA. Possibly by coincidence Beri provides a Mineral Extraction Risk Assessment service for up to 145 countries that are expected to show rapid growth in oil, gas, and mineral extraction capacity. If one had advance access to economic intelligence and had fostered close business ties over the years with uranium producers, huge financial gains would be possible. Could the Wilson-McCarthy-Africa connection may indicate another instance of US intelligence and Foreign Service personnel taking advantage of regulatory loopholes and lax security in third world countries for personal gain?
A. J. Strata read Hanson’s article, and looks at Rockefeller, Joe Wilson and Niger Uranium, which also includes Paul Volker and Rockefeller’s grandaughter Miranda Duncan.
Update It was obvious from the first that the press, in taking Wilson and Plame at their own estimation, was fashioning a rod for its own back.
Where to park while you’re flying standing up?
I don’t see any Hummers in that picture.
In any case, Traveling the Road to Wellness apparently doesn’t include standing-room-only flights and stacked parking. Or a man who argued with workers at a Cleveland airport ticket counter on Thursday, before grabbing an officer’s gun and shooting a patrolman.

‘United 93’ Ending Altered

This title card was recently changed to, “Dedicated to the memory of all those who lost their lives on Sept. 11, 2001.”
