Last Year one of Worst Ever for Refugees: UNHCR Chief

Do you think Mr.Bush had something to do with that:
Last year was one of the worst on record for refugees and the crisis is deepening in 2007 thanks to conflicts in Iraq, Afghanistan, Somalia and Sudan's Darfur region, the United Nation's refugee chief said.

Isn't that rich:
The Homeland Security Department, the lead U.S. agency for fighting cyber threats, suffered more than 800 hacker break-ins, virus outbreaks and other computer security problems over two years, senior officials acknowledged to Congress.

And the Clintons love to skirt the law:
It is against the law for a candidate for federal office to take political contributions from foreigners.

[...]It is perfectly legal for a candidate for federal office to use personal income earned in foreign countries — or personal income earned by a spouse in foreign countries.

The New York senator has access not only to her own wealth, but also to the bankroll of her wealthy husband, former President Bill Clinton, who has capitalized greatly on his résumé since leaving office in 2001 and whose income has been significantly enhanced through speeches made in foreign lands.

This is a bad joke:
President Bush and Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert agreed Tuesday that the best chance for a Middle East peace is through negotiations with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.

But Jimmy Carter knows what the deal is. Its the old divide and conquer:
Former President Jimmy Carter accused the U.S., Israel and the European Union on Tuesday of seeking to divide the Palestinian people by reopening aid to President Mahmoud Abbas' new government in the West Bank while denying the same to the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip.

Rushdie diplomatic row escalates:
Iran has stepped up its protest over the knighthood awarded by Britain to Salman Rushdie, whose 1988 novel The Satanic Verses outraged many Muslims.

Spread of AIDS in Africa Is Outpacing Treatment:
Even as billions of dollars are spent expanding access to antiretroviral drugs, the goal of controlling AIDS in Africa remains remote.
