Marines propositioned by Afghan men
The Scotsman | Submitted by: Rusty Shackleford
Scottish marines sent to flush out possible al-Qaeda hideouts in Eastern Afghanistan were greeted by a different threat -- hordes of makeup-wearing Afghan farmers approaching them with sexual innuendos, offers to paint their toenails, and even requests that the soldiers dance for them. According to one marine, "We discovered from the Afghan soldiers we had with us that a lot of men in this country have the same philosophy as ancient Greeks: a woman for babies, a man for pleasure." The article goes on to mention spurious damage claims made for goats supposedly knocked off mountainsides by helicopter rotors; we are not told whether the goats were also propositioned.

CNN | Submitted by: Grendel's Lair
One would think that the key words at the FBI are that you can never have TOO MUCH data. Apparently that wasn't the case. They gathered up too many emails while chasing the Al Qaeda terrorists, and rather than sift through it, they deleted all of it. Your tax dollars and privacy going up in smoke folks.

Homeland Security vs. Godzilla
ABC News | Submitted by: 4nogod
Who's dumber: People willing to fly planes into buildings or the people who interrogate them and expect the truth? "Questions are being raised, however, about whether Zubaydah is playing games with his interrogators.... For instance, during interrogations recently, Zubaydah suggested that a bridge and a statue shown in the remake of Godzilla might be targets for terrorism....
