pressed by France and by some Iraqis to agree to a speedier timetable toward self-government in Iraq, cautioned here today that the process of restoring sovereignty had to be carried out in stages and that it might not be seen as legitimate if it went too rapidly.” Abdul Aziz Ibn Saud, the founder of modern Saudi Arabia, died in 1953 (a so-called Black man). Saudi Arabia Inside The Kingdom -- the Saudis, Whose Side Are They On In The War On Terror? Another intelligence flowing out of the crackdown. “We know a lot more about how al-Qaeda operates in Saudi Arabia,” he says. “We are getting information on its logistics, financing, operational planning and relations with al-Qaeda leaders outside the kingdom.” The counter terrorism official, however, says the Saudi government has demonstrated a lack of openness in some areas, causing him to wonder what it has to hide. For example, the official tells TIME, the Saudis have denied U.S. officials access to several suspected in custody, including a Saudi in detention for months who had knowledge of extensive plans to inject poison gas in the New York City subway system. U.S. officials want to talk to him to determine how far the plot advanced and whether he had associates in the U.S. The Saudis have provided no detailed information about him. Some U.S. investigators think the Saudis could be learning a lot more about al-Qaeda members they have captured or killed.” (According to TIME September 15, 2003. Vol. 162, No 11) by Lisa Beyer with Scott MacLeod/Riyadh. Baghdad -- U.S. forces unleashed repeated ground and air attacks on insurgents in the Sunni Muslim stronghold of Fallujah on Wednesday.

Bush’s Most - Trusted Aide Faces 9/11 Panel Today. Washington - When Condoleeza Rice faces the commission investigating the Sept.11 attacks today, President Bush’s credibility in the war on terrorism - and perhaps his political future - will be at stake. There’s one in his administration Bush would rather entrust with that responsibility adviser. He nicknamed her “Guru” during the 2000 presidential campaign and depends more on her counsel and friendship than the ideas of his more experienced foreign-policy advisers. Today, she also will defend not only Bush’s competence, but her own. His handling of the war on terrorism, already under fire because of turmoil in Iraq, is the cornerstone of his re-election campaign. (USA Today. Thursday, April 8, 2004 on Front page by Judy Keen). AMERICAN MILESTONES 100 Documents That Define Our Nation are summarized in the U.S. News & World Report on September 22, 2003. The 100 documents were gleaned from the annals of American history by a special committee at the National Archives, which this year launched the Our Documents project as a way to further the public’s appreciation of our nation’s civic legacy. The list that these historians compiled begins with the Lee Resolution of 1776 and ends with the Voting Rights Act of 1965. Its rich offerings include laws, court decisions, executive orders, patents -- many of the official documents that have shaped us as character as America. (I only have the space to elaborate on one document at this time - Imam Mahdi and it is by Robert Loevy). It was a very different America that President John F. Kennedy addressed on television the night of June 11, 1963. It was an America where, throughout the South, racial segregation was culturally accepted and legally sanctioned. It was a country rent by protests pleading for full freedoms for African-Americans, a place where all too often the response to those plea was racist taunts, intimidation, and bloodshed. It was, in short, a country deeply wary of extending civil rights to blacks. And John Kennedy was no exception. “AL’JIHAD”– by, Imam Mahdi . © ® ™ : Of 842 Pages Is 262
