"I could have killed myself," she tells this month's issue of Ladies' Home Journal. The withdrawal...

    Stars Get Reality Check from Fellow Passengers Paula Abdul either overestimated her star power or underestimated the sort of primeval code of conduct that rules when 100 or more people are packed in an aluminum tube, rebreathing each other's air. The American Idol judge's first mistake was to ask for first-class treatment on the successfully proletariat Southwest Airlines by demanding advanced boarding for a flight from San Jose to Burbank, Calif. Her next move was trying to cash in her star credits. When told that advanced boarding was reserved for the old, the very young and infirm, she reportedly said,...

    HAMBURG - Abdul Rahman, the Afghan whose prosecution for converting to Christianity led to worldwide controversy, was judged to be mentally unstable by German officials who interviewed him six years ago, a German news magazine reported Saturday.

The account in Der Spiegel backs up the Kabul officials' view that he was not mentally competent to be tried. Der Spiegel said there were accounts going back years of Abdul Rahman being violent and disturbed. In February 2000 he...

Therefore, it can be clear that there is no more problem for Mr. Rahman. ” Specifically, Karzai is declaring the...

    Speculation mounted yesterday that ``American Idol'' judge Paula Abdul may be voted off the hit reality show after ABC airs a damning investigation tomorrow night. Abdul, who has been under fire for erratic on-air behavior, may voluntarily vacate the judge's podium after ``Primetime Live'' airs answering-machine messages she left for a 24-year-old contestant. The Drudge Report says Abdul personally coached the contestant and then tried to cover it up. Speculation surrounds Corey Clark, who was run off the show last season after it was revealed he assaulted his teenage sister. Clark is peddling a tell-all biography in which he claims...

    Disgraced Pakistani nuclear scientist Abdul Qadeer Khan has been punished by being nationally humilliated, US national security couselor Condoleezza Rice said Sunday. Rice was asked on CNN to clarify President George W. Bush's statement during his debate late Thursday with Senator John Kerry that "the A.Q. Khan network has been brought to justice." Khan, the father of his country's nuclear bomb, publicly confessed in February to leaking nuclear secrets to Iran, Libya and North Korea. But Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf, who insisted the proliferation was carried out by a handful of scientists without government involvement, has given Khan a conditional...
