Why; because they were Jewish, because they were Israeli, Western, not Muslim? In the minds of the terrorists it was probably all of the above. Not that those pathetic reasons mattered to the victims while they were being tortured or their friends and family now coming to grips with the reality of what happened.
"Asked specifically if he was talking of torture marks, he said: "It was apparent that most of the dead were tortured. What shocked me were the telltale signs showing clearly how the hostages were executed in cold blood," one doctor said.
The other doctor, who had also conducted the post-mortem of the victims, said: "Of all the bodies, the Israeli victims bore the maximum torture marks. It was clear that they were killed on the 26th itself. It was obvious that they were tied up and tortured before they were killed. It was so bad that I do not want to go over the details even in my head again," he said."
Surly is would be racist to say that no one of importance in the world will listen to Obama because of his skin color. It is just as racist to say that people will listen because of his skin color.
It is historic that America has elected the first black president, but lets not kid ourselves. Our enemies will not become our friends because our president is black anymore then then our friends will become our enemies for the same reason. The world will react to us based on our actions. Thinking otherwise is foolhardy at best with a racist tinge at worst.
"The number two man at NBC News believes Barack Obama's skin color gives him more legitimacy around the world than possibly any American leader in history.
As part of the panel on Sunday's "The Chris Matthews Show," Whitaker said the following about Barack Obama (h/t American Thinker's Marc Sheppard, file photo):
I think it goes beyond the Middle East, and I think it's a bigger phenomenon which is the leader of the biggest democracy in the world is now a person of color and that is going to give him what political scientists would call a legitimacy in the street around the world that I don't think an American leader has had, ever perhaps.
Imagine that. Because Obama is black, before he even steps into the White House and accomplishes one darned thing he already has more legitimacy around the world than possibly every American president that came before him."

Here are the updated links to keep you informed of this dynamic situation.
Batman is probably one of the top three most well know super heroes of all time. While Batman will live on in spirit for the foreseeable future, Bruce Wayne's time as Batman is coming to an end after roughly 70 years. Perhaps the only thing more shocking then Bruce Wayne being killed is the person who murdered him. The killer was his father; the person who we all thought was killed, who's murder was one of the primary catalysts to Batman's creation. You can read all about it in the comic Batman R.I.P.
Though Bruce Wayne is dead, Batman will live on. The two leading candidates to take up the mantel of Batman are the original Robin or current Boy Wonder.
"Bruce Wayne – who by night is Batman – gets murdered by a man claiming to be the father he thought was dead.
In a highly controversial new storyline Bruce, who first appeared in 1939, is killed by Simon Hurt – the leader of the shady Black Glove organisation.
Simon claims he is really Dr Thomas Wayne, saying he faked his own passing when Bruce was a child.
The superhero dies when he tries to stop his foe escaping by helicopter in the new comic Batman R.I.P."
"A Wal-Mart worker died after being trampled when hundreds of shoppers smashed through the doors of a Long Island store Friday morning, police and witnesses said.
The 34-year-old employee, a temporary maintenance worker, tried to hold back the unruly crowds just after the Valley Stream store opened at 5 a.m."

"The first serious battlefield ray gun is now being deployed. And the next generation, now in the laboratory, is coming soon.
The deployed ray gun (or “directed-energy weapon”, in the tedious jargon that military men seem compelled to use to describe technology) is known as Zeus. It is not designed to kill. Rather, its purpose is to allow you to remain at a safe distance when you detonate unexploded ordnance, such as the homemade roadside bombs that plague foreign troops in Iraq."

SurviveTheOutbreak.com is an interactive movie. The plot of the story is that a small group of people are being chased by zombies. Every minute or so, you have to make a decision from the perspective of one of the main characters. The story plays out depending on what your decisions are. If one of your decisions leads to your death, you can either start over or use the "Chapter Select" button to jump back to where you were before you died and see your decision tree.
The story is not that long, so even if you make every wrong decision you should still be able to complete the story within the half hour.
As it is a zombie story, there is a lot of blood and violence. This is not a something meant for young children.
Can you make it all the way through without dieing at all? Feel free to comment on how you did.
We need it to protect against the solitary strike. One missile inbound missile fired by terrorist or "rouge" regime; that is what the need is for. With a small but effective missile shield in place we could prevent these nations from blackmailing us. We could also save lives on both sides. If we get nuked, thousands if not millions on our side would die (not to mention the economic losses). The response from our side against them would also lead to millions of deaths on their side.
As bad as that sounds, their is a scenario worse then the one just outlined. One nuke could be used not just to destroy a city, but to cripple the country. A nuke detonated 300 miles up, used as and EMP would destroy our electronic infrastructure while it fired most of our civilian economic devices. That scenario is clearly outlined below, but the takeaway point should be clear. We need a working missile shield; even if only a small one.
"Think about this scenario: An ordinary-looking freighter ship heading toward New York or Los Angeles launches a missile from its hull or from a canister lowered into the sea. It hits a densely populated area. A million people are incinerated. The ship is then sunk. No one claims responsibility. There is no firm evidence as to who sponsored the attack, and thus no one against whom to launch a counterstrike.
But as terrible as that scenario sounds, there is one that is worse. Let us say the freighter ship launches a nuclear-armed Shahab-3 missile off the coast of the U.S. and the missile explodes 300 miles over Chicago. The nuclear detonation in space creates an electromagnetic pulse (EMP).
Gamma rays from the explosion, through the Compton Effect, generate three classes of disruptive electromagnetic pulses, which permanently destroy consumer electronics, the electronics in some automobiles and, most importantly, the hundreds of large transformers that distribute power throughout the U.S. All of our lights, refrigerators, water-pumping stations, TVs and radios stop running. We have no communication and no ability to provide food and water to 300 million Americans."

"A 30-year-old Spanish woman has made medical history by becoming the first patient to receive a whole organ transplant grown using her own cells.
Experts said the development opened a new era in surgery in which the repair of worn-out body parts would be carried out with personally customised replacements.
Claudia Castillo, who lives in Barcelona, underwent the operation to replace her windpipe after tuberculosis had left her with a collapsed lung and unable to breathe."

"Johan’s friend Blassius Hanczuch confirmed the priest’s
account of how the medic saved Hitler’s life. He said: “In
1916 they had their hardest fight in the Battle of the Somme.
“For several hours, Johan and his friends picked up injured
soldiers. He remembers Hitler.
“They called him the ‘Screamer’. He was very
noisy. Hitler was screaming ‘help, help’.
“His abdomen and legs were all in blood. Hitler was injured in
the abdomen and lost one testicle. His first question to the doctor was: ‘Will
I be able to have children?’.”
Blassius said that when the Nazis swept to power Johan began to suffer
nightmares and blame himself for saving Hitler.
Hitler’s genitals have long caused controversy. Some historians
dismissed the “one ball” song as propaganda. But an
alleged Soviet autopsy on Hitler backed it up.
Records show Hitler did suffer a groin injury in the Somme.

"The outgoing Bush administration has told top lawmakers it does not plan to use at least half of the $700 billion bailout fund that Congress approved this fall to aid the financial industry, congressional officials said Monday. The Treasury Department denied the claim, but stopped short of saying the funds would be tapped.
The congressional officials said Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson passed the word over the weekend that he intends to leave $350 billion untouched when the administration leaves office on Jan. 20. That would mean the incoming Obama administration would decide whether and how the funds should be spent."
First, there would be almost no way to stop it. A ship of this size and mass builds up so much inertia that it takes some time to stop it without it fighting you. Traveling at full speed with the engines maxed out would likely overcome any attempt to physical pull it back if you could manage to hook on to it in the first place (assuming you do not catch up to it until it gets close to shore). Shooting at it is not optimal either because of the massive oil spill you could cause and the possibility of the oil catching fire and exploding. Even if you do not shoot at it, once it hits something in port it will have the same effect. One word; nightmare. It does not appear that the pirates have this in mind, but if pirates can hijack a ship in once thought "safe" waters, so can terrorists.
"Pirates operating off the coast of east Africa have hijacked a Saudi supertanker fully laden with an estimated 2m barrels of oil in an attack that marks a significant escalation in the scope of banditry in the region.
The pirates, believed to be from lawless Somalia, seized control of the Sirius Star, which is owned by Saudi Aramco, the world’s largest oil company, on Saturday, 450 nautical miles south-east of the Kenyan Indian Ocean port of Mombasa.
It is estimated that the tanker was holding more than a quarter of the daily exports from Saudi Arabia, the world’s largest oil exporter. The oil would have been worth about $100m (€79m, £66.5m) at Monday’s market price..."

"Call it breaking the brass ceiling. Ann E. Dunwoody, after 33 years in the Army, ascended Friday to a peak never before reached by a woman in the U.S. military: four-star general.
Dunwoody received her Army commission after graduating from the State University of New York in 1975.
Her first assignment was to Fort Sill, as supply platoon leader in June 1976, and she remained at Sill in various positions until she was sent to quartermaster officer school at Fort Lee, Va., in July 1980.
She later served in Germany and Saudi Arabia.
After graduating from the Command and General Staff College in 1987, she was assigned to Fort Bragg, N.C., where she became the 82nd Airborne Division's first female battalion commander.
She has numerous decorations, including the Distinguished Service Medal and Defense Superior Service Medal."
My understanding is that the lines emanating from the black center are image falsehoods. The red dust ring is real. The blacked out area is where the star is, but it is blacked out in order to see the surrounding dust and the planet. The second is easier to understand.
Scroll down, look at the pictures, and be amazed.
The first picture is from Hubble. Ready? Here it is:
Do you see it? That tiny spark, that wee blip of light? It may not look like much, but it is in fact a normal planet orbiting a normal star, 250 trillion kilometers from Earth.
This is huge news.
And it gets even huger. Because there’s more:
That image is the first to directly show two planets orbiting another star! It’s a near-infrared image using the giant Gemini North 8 meter telescope. Like in the Hubble image, the star’s light has been blocked, allowing the two planets to be seen (labeled b and c).
The star is called HR 8799. It’s a bit more massive (1.5 times) and more luminous (5x) than the Sun, and lies about 130 light years from Earth. The planets in this picture orbit it at distances of 6 billion km (3.6 billion miles) and 10.5 billion km (6.3 billion miles). A third planet, not seen in this image but discovered later using the Keck 10 meter telescope, orbits the star closer in at a distance of 3.8 billion km (2.3 billion miles).
So there it is. The first ever family portrait of a planetary system."

We compared these aggregated queries against data provided by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and we found that there's a very close relationship between the frequency of these search queries and the number of people who are experiencing flu-like symptoms each week. As a result, if we tally each day's flu-related search queries, we can estimate how many people have a flu-like illness. Based on this discovery, we have launched Google Flu Trends, where you can find up-to-date influenza-related activity estimates for each of the 50 states in the U.S."

Quote by Andrew Berman
Most people know that first impressions are important. Increasingly, first impressions are made in the digital sphere. Even if not a first impression, the digital first impression can be influential. Do not think for one second that when you apply for a job your employer will not search for you online. That includes materials that you posted and materials that others posted about you. Your potential employer may not be able to tell that something written about you is a lie or a joke. You must actively combat the falsehoods and advocate for yourself; it is doubtful that anyone else will do it for you.
"We have been guided by a Republican administration who believes in the simplistic notion that people who have wealth are entitled to keep it and they have an antipathy towards the means of redistributing wealth and they may be able to sustain it for a while but it doesn’t work in the long run."

"A fungus that makes biodiesel as part of its natural lifecycle has attracted the attention of American scientists wishing to tap into its potential.
The fungus has been discovered living in trees in the Patagonian rainforests and is believed to be unique in its ability to synthesize a variety of substances useful in fuel production."
"Nuclear power plants smaller than a garden shed and able to power 20,000 homes will be on sale within five years, say scientists at Los Alamos, the US government laboratory which developed the first atomic bomb.
The miniature reactors will be factory-sealed, contain no weapons-grade material, have no moving parts and will be nearly impossible to steal because they will be encased in concrete and buried underground.
The US government has licensed the technology to Hyperion, a New Mexico-based company which said last week that it has taken its first firm orders and plans to start mass production within five years. 'Our goal is to generate electricity for 10 cents a watt anywhere in the world,' said John Deal, chief executive of Hyperion. 'They will cost approximately $25m [£13m] each. For a community with 10,000 households, that is a very affordable $250 per home.'"

"Last month, as an Obama win looked increasingly inevitable, there were more than 108,000 more background checks for gun purchases than in October 2007, a 15 percent increase. And they were up about 8 percent for the year as of Oct. 26, according to the FBI.
No data was available for gun purchases this week, but gun shops from suburban Virginia to the Rockies report record sales since Tuesday's election.
"They're scared to death of losing their rights," said David Hancock, manager of Bob Moates, where sales have nearly doubled in the past week and are up 15 percent for the year. On Election Day, salespeople were called in on their day off because of the crowd."
"The Federal Communications Commission voted Tuesday to open up unused, unlicensed portions of the television airwaves known as "white spaces" to deliver wireless broadband service.
The vote is a big victory for public interest groups and technology companies such as Google Inc. and Microsoft Corp. that say white spaces could be used to bring broadband to rural America and other underserved parts of the country."
Still, you should always try to cover all your bases. Technology that defends you from from nuclear missile strikes is one of those basis. Knowing what I do about Israel, I am sure they have technology and are working on other technology in an effort to cover the rest of their bases.
"Israeli military is working on "a high-flying, long-endurance unmanned infrared sensor" that can tell the difference between "nuclear warheads amid dozens of decoys sent to confound national missile defenses," Defense News' Barbara Opall-Rome reports. "If implemented, the Israeli program will mark the first use of an unmanned platform for [n]uclear warhead hunting."
Picking out a warhead from sophisticated decoys is "if not the most challenging, one of the most challenging problems that missile defense people are working," GlobalSecurity.org director John Pike tells Defense News. But it's not impossible."

Obama was quick to apologize.
"President-elect Barack Obama called Nancy Reagan this afternoon to apologize for a joke about her having heald "séances" in the White House, an Obama aide said.
“President-elect Barack Obama called Nancy Reagan today to apologize for the careless and off handed remark he made during today’s press conference," said transition spokeswoman Stephanie Cutter. "The President-elect expressed his admiration and affection for Mrs. Reagan that so many Americans share and they had a warm conversation."
He was apparently confusing stories about Reagan's consulting with an astrologer with those about other First Ladies -- from Mary Todd Lincoln to Hillary Clinton -- who tried to make contact with other figures from the past."
"Who Got To Ask Questions At The Obama Presser?

"CCS Headline News - Superintendent's Response to YouTube
I was shocked when I saw the clip of an interaction between a Cumberland County Schools teacher and her students as posted on YouTube. While neutral discussion of the political process is appropriate, at no time, particularly with elementary students, should a teacher infuse his/her political views into the discussion. Most disconcerting was the military slant that made its way into this discussion. We are a military community, serving over 15,000 military students and their families. We value the sacrifices, not only of the military parents but also those of their families.
We believe that military children are our children, military spouses are many of our employees, and military service men and women are our heroes. We proudly serve our military children and have received national awards for our support of military families.
I was particularly disturbed to see the uncomfortable position in which our children were placed due to the inappropriate actions of one of our teachers. Please be assured that the actions exhibited in this video are not consistent with the vision of the CCS. Moreover, the actions of one teacher do not represent the 7000 employees in our organization.
Once the video was brought to my attention, I immediately launched an investigation. Personnel laws prevent me from releasing information regarding individual employees and personnel action taken. I can assure you that upon completion of the investigation, I will take appropriate action.
