    The FBI’s 10 Most Wanted Fugitives list turned 66 years old last week — and it ain’t your grandfather’s catalog of thugs and hoodlums anymore. Like crime in America, the list has evolved. It started in the 1950s as an array of the “toughest” bank robbers and car thieves before adding radicals and kidnappers in the ’60s, mobsters in the ’70s and gangbangers and white-collar criminals in the ’80s and ’90s.

    Phillipsburg, New Jersey — Operation Rescue has reason to believe that Steven Chase Brigham may be slipping into some of his American Women’s Services abortion businesses to conduct illegal abortions. Brigham’s New Jersey medical license was revoked in October 2014, after he was caught running an illegal bi-state late-term abortion scheme that nearly killed one young woman. He holds no active medical license in any state and it is illegal for him to conduct abortions or engage in any other medical practice. Operation Rescue is asking the public for help in documenting this suspected illegal activity that could be placing...

For example, he told the press back in 2006 that when he was talking to senators about electronic monitoring of sex offenders, "I said implant it in their anus and if they go outside the radius, explode it, and that would send a big message." (Walsh said it was a joke, adding, "Nobody thought it was funny.")

Dillinger, whose name once dominated the headlines, was a notorious and vicious thief.

    BAGHDAD, Iraq - Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, whose bloody campaign of beheadings and suicide bombings made him the most-wanted terrorist in Iraq, was killed when U.S. warplanes dropped 500-pound bombs on his isolated safe house, officials said Thursday. His death was a long-sought victory in the war in Iraq. The targeted air strike Wednesday evening was the culmination of a two-week-long hunt for al-Zarqawi, the leader of al-Qaida in Iraq. Tips from senior militants within the network led U.S. forces to follow al-Zarqawi's spiritual adviser to the safe house, 30 miles outside Baghdad, for a meeting with the terror leader. The...

    Iraqi sources have told a Saudi newspaper that al-Qaeda's man in Iraq, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, has been arrested. Al Watan daily said Sunday that the official announcement on the arrest was delayed until a new Iraqi government is in place. The purported arrest supposedly took place on the Iraqi - Syrian border, the report added. It should be mentioned that CNN aired on Saturday new pictures believed to show al-Zarqawi, who is America's most-wanted man in Iraq. The Saudi paper said that the arrest of al-Zarqawi was completed ahead the recent visit of US Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld in...

    The Iraqi government has compiled a detailed list of the 29 most-wanted insurgents and terrorists, offering rewards of $50,000 to $25 million for their capture. The wanted men are in Iraq and neighboring states and are being sought for "funding and coordinating terrorist operations inside Iraq in an attempt to disrupt the country's march toward democracy and autonomous government," according to a U.S. Central Command statement accompanying the list. We obtained a copy of the list that is the first public disclosure by the Iraqi or U.S. governments identifying the terrorists and former regime officials behind the insurgency. Topping the...

    I've been unlucky enough to catch TV appearances by Kerry's spokesperson, Stephanie Cutter lately. For a fairly attractive, seemingly intelligent young woman, she spews such absolute garbage and lies, it's almost laughable. I began to wonder if she actually believed the stuff she says, so I ran some internet searches on her background. She's the real deal alright -- started in the Clinton WH -- need I say more. However, I did find a very interesting article from Dec. 2003 in kos (not familiar with the site) which is VERY revealing about not only Ms Cutter but THE KERRY CAMPAIGN....

    CARACAS - Venezuela recalled its ambassador in Bogotá on Thursday after the Colombian government admitted paying a bounty for a leading guerrilla allegedly kidnapped in Caracas and handed over to Colombian police. Colombian Defense Minister Jorge Alberto Uribe, who admitted making the payment, was a ''participant in a crime which may have international implications,'' said Venezuelan Vice President José Vicente Rangel. The recall of Ambassador Carlos Santiago Ramírez was the latest and harshest step in the increasingly bizarre dispute over Rodrigo Granda, a senior member of the guerrilla Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC. The clash could affect relations...
  • Kwanzaa -- Racist Holiday from Hell

    While public officials, schools, and the ACLU worked overtime this year to ban every vestige of Christmas from the public square, the recently invented holiday known as Kwanzaa is gaining in popularity among black Americans. These occurrences are not unrelated. In an earlier time, blacks held a strong faith in God. But over the past 40 years, the black community has largely let God slip away. Sure the community has maintained the outer trappings of religion, but the solid morality at its core is nearly gone. Enter a God-hating black racist named Ron Karenga. Born Ron Everett on a poultry farm...

    KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) -- The United States could cut its forces in Afghanistan next summer if Taliban militants accept an amnesty to be drawn up by President Hamid Karzai and neighboring Pakistan, the senior U.S. commander here said Sunday. Any reduction in the 18,000-strong mainly American combat force in Afghanistan would relieve the U.S. military, stretched thin by the much larger deployment in Iraq. Still, the force is unlikely to shrink before parliamentary elections slated for April. "By next summer we'll have a much better sense if the security threat is diminished as a result of, say, a significant reconciliation...
  • Pakistan arrests al Qaeda suspects

    LAHORE, Pakistan (CNN) -- Pakistani intelligence agencies have arrested two suspected al Qaeda members in separate raids in Peshawar and Lahore, the nation's information minister has said.

    BAGHDAD, Iraq - Iraqi officials thought they had the king of clubs. On Sunday morning, the Iraqi Defense Ministry spokesman announced the capture of one of Iraq's most wanted men, Izzat Ibrahim al-Douri, a trusted confidant of Saddam Hussein and the highest-ranking regime official to remain free. In detail, the spokesman told a U.S.-funded television station here how U.S. and Iraqi forces had stormed a medical clinic in the northern city of Tikrit where the feeble al-Douri was receiving treatment for leukemia. By midafternoon, officials from no less than four Iraqi ministries -- including two ministers and a ranking officer...
