Monday edition - September 13, 2010
A small but growing group of Iraq and Afghanistan veterans have signed onto an open letter, provided exclusively to the Huffington Post, which calls on the American public to respect "the values we risked our lives to protect" and to avoid endangering the mission -- and safety -- of U.S. forces in the Mideast.
First came the tears, the solemn bugle call and the recital of the names of the dead. Then came the chants, speeches and angry shouts.
Nine years of denouncing terrorism, of praying side-by-side with Jews and Christians, of insisting "I'm American, too." None of it could stop a season of hate against Muslims that made for an especially fraught Sept. 11. Now, Muslims are asking why their efforts to be accepted in the United States have been so easily thwarted.
"Merriam-Webster says that Sarah Palin's made-up word 'refudiate' was the most
searched word of the summer. But no matter how hard they tried, Palin's
supporters couldn't find the word in the Definitionary or the Wordasaurus."
It Would Have Been Nice If the Saudis Would Have Helped in Gulf War One and Two As They Are Well Armed
The Obama administration will soon notify Congress of an arms deal with Saudi Arabia worth up to $60 billion, but the kingdom is expected to only initially commit to about half that, a senior U.S. defense official said Monday.

More Blood On The Hands of "Pastor" Jones
Police shot dead at least 13
people Monday in anti-government and Koran demonstrations across Indian Kashmir
in the biggest single death toll from protests in the disputed region in years.
The toll includes nine people killed in police clashes after Muslim protesters set fire to a Christian missionary school and government buildings in two districts to denounce reports that copies of the Koran had been damaged in the United States.

Right Wingers Even Demonstrate Against Mosque Near ’7/11′
By Don Davis
Pastor Terry Jones originally planned to burn the Koran tomorrow, then yesterday
he called it off because he believed he made a deal with an Imam to stop the
plan to build a Mosque near Ground Zero. The Imam said that wasn’t true, he
agreed to no such thing. Then Pastor Jones said he was lied to and the burning
was back on. This guy is unbelievable. He’s like the Brett Favre of burning
books.” –Jimmy Kimmel
