Doves, silence for A-bomb victims

Hundreds of doves were released in Peace Memorial Park in Hiroshima Saturday as tens of thousands of people gathered 60 years after the world's first atomic bomb was dropped on the city, killing nearly half of its residents. Japanese Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi paid tribute to the bombing victims, saying Japan has vowed "never to repeat the tragedies in Hiroshima and Nagasaki."

New York City Sued over Random Searches

"The New York Civil Liberties Union sued the city's police department Thursday, calling the random search of subway riders' bags unconstitutional and ineffective," according to the Washington Post. "The lawsuit -- filed in a federal court on behalf of five subway passengers, including the son of a retired police captain and a naturalized citizen -- alleges that the program violates constitutional rights that protect against illegal searches and guarantee due process."

Charles Pe?a, Cato's director of defense policy studies, says, "Instead of random searches that are the equivalent of playing the lottery, a more effective approach to subway security would be to have bomb sniffing dogs at subway stations. Any searches as a result of the dogs picking up certain scents would be the result of probable cause and the likelihood of catching a would-be bomber would increase exponentially. Furthermore, the presence of such dogs might actually have a deterrent effect as a terrorist would know that the chances of getting caught would be much greater than random searches."

Ignored by the Intelligence Community: crucial information that could prevent another major terrorist attack against the United States

Countdown to Terror

by Curt Weldon

If the explosive information revealed in this book had been collected by the Intelligence Community, it would be classified at the highest security level, above TOP SECRET, and would never be seen by the public. But Congressman Curt Weldon (R-PA), the Vice Chairman of the House Armed Service Committee can share this information with you because he himself collected it -- and because he's trying to make the public aware of this threat that the intelligence community is ignoring before it's too late. That's why Weldon wrote Countdown to Terror. Never before has such "real time" war-related intelligence from an impeccable clandestine source been publicly disclosed.
