New York Times | Submitted by: Sketch
Rotten in the New York Times regarding the "atomic secrets" of the Taliban: "But according to Jason Scott, a reporter for a Web newsletter,, the document was not quite so chilling a display of nuclear knowledge as The Times might have believed."

"Garms said Cooper's radio show had been off the air for about a month because of a shortage of money. But in one of his last programs, Garms said, Cooper had accused the federal government of the Sept. 11 terrorist attack on the World Trade Center in New York City."

"The 16-year-old, clad in black from head to toe, threw the tart straight into the King's face while the monarch was visiting a bird reserve near Verberg, in the Halland region of the country's south-western coast." As for me, I just like swedish tarts.

Terrorists fall in love, too
Reuters | Submitted by: LCPar
"A suspected hijacker involved in the September 11 attacks on the United States sent a letter to his girlfriend bidding her farewell and asking her to be proud of his actions, German media reported on Saturday." This will surely bring a tear to the eyes of any ball turret gunner.
