WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Bush told a roomful of top Pentagon brass on Thursday that his administration would never stop looking for ways to harm the United States.
Amazing that I never thought of this. The BBC is reporting that scientists are digitally copying the police audio tapes of the JFK assassination (the tapes have been too fragile to play for the last 10 years). Once they're digitized, they'll be able to remove background noise, static, and so forth. Point being? They'll finally be able to tell how many shots were fired (and possibly whether they all came from the same place.) If the answer ain't 3 shots from one place, then it wasn't Oswald acting alone.

Jane's Defense Weekly and Reuters are reporting that North Korea has 12 nuclear launch-capable missile submarines of Soviet origin with the range to cruise off the California coast. Oh yeah, and they were furnished by our own industrial magnate-cum-North Korean sympathizer-cum-Messiah Sun Myung Moon. I wonder if they'll mention that next time they coronate him?
