    SIG Sauer, long the target of disarmament campaigners in Germany, announced Thursday it intended by year’s end to close its factory at Eckernförde near Kiel, capital of Germany’s northernmost state of Schleswig-Holstein. It blamed “locational handicaps” hindering its diverse pistol and sports guns sales, claiming a “few other local producers” were preferred in government purchases for Germany’s police forces and Bundeswehr military. Public broadcaster NDR quoted manager Tim Castagne as saying the workers’ council at the Eckernförde site, established in 1951, had been briefed about some 125 job losses as well plans to fulfil purchase orders. ”Due to its international...

    The Daily Mail ^ | September 5, 2007
    Police have smashed a suspected al Qaeda terror cell nursing a "profound hatred of US citizens" plotting to bomb civilian and military jets. The force of the planned explosions would have been worse than the train bombings in Madrid and the Tube and bus attacks in London on 7 July, 2005, according to German security sources. Those attacks killed 191 and 52 people respectively. Three men aged 22, 28 and 29 have been arrested in Germany days before they planned to strike, and bomb-making equipment and explosives have been seized. The arrests come a day after Danish police conducted raids...

He left her business 25 hours ago, taking a package from Kent, WA to Sultan, WA. He never showed up. He was last heard from when the office called in at 2:58 p.m. yesterday and he answered his cellphone. Completely uneventful conversation. His name is JefWhitiger (sp?). He is described as 41-years-old, 5'11", bald and over 300 pounds. He was driving a white 1998 Cadillac Caterra (sp?) with a license plate of...
