Iraq on the "Endangered List?"

Iraq makes endangered list

Excerpt: New York - A Roman aqueduct in Spain, New York City's hotly debated "lollipop building" and the entire country of Iraq are among the World Monuments Fund's list of 100 most endangered sites has announced.

"This is the first time we have listed a country as endangered, and I think that we can all understand that every site in Iraq that is significant in terms of cultural heritage is at risk today," Bonnie Burnham, president of the World Monuments Fund, said on Tuesday."

"She said thousands of important sites in Iraq, known as the cradle of civilisation, are at risk from war, looting and neglect."

I know that in the first days after the war started there were some stories that priceless artifacts from museums were being looted and even yesterdaythere was a report of ongoing looting and destruction of artifacts.

(I know....It's the BBC...)

Yet I hope that in any case the Iraq government and with our help can put a stop to any further loss of history if it is taking place. Truth is that one day I hope to visit the new democracy and view some of the museums and things of old.

Calling Mr. Fitzgerald?


As I told you about in this post yesterday as a source confirmed to me that the Justice Department has launched a probe into the NSA leak. Mr. Risen, you are in trouble - prepare your defense. I told you so.

The White House will be announcing the probe at about 12:30pm. My source tells me that this probe will most likely result in another prosecutor being assigned as of course Fitzgerald is still busy/dizzy on the Plame/Game No-Leak. Additionally, other probes into other recent leaks such as the CIA 'prisons'leak is in the works as well. As I said, this is the NEW Bush - on the attack - it's no more Mr. Nice Guy!

Sniper Attack Las Vegas Music Festival

Police are hunting for the female companion of a lone gunman who killed at least 20 people, including two off-duty police officers, and injured more than 100 injured in Las Vegas on Sunday night.
Officers believe Marilou Danley, who they described as a middle-aged Asian woman, has more information on the man who attacked the Route 91 Harvest Festival on Sunday night before being killed.
That man was named by 9 News as Stephen Paddock, a 64-year-old man from Mesquite, Nevada, who was known to local law enforcement.
Police were reported to be searching his house in the early hours of Monday morning, though there was no indication of a motive.
The Strip was completely shut down after the man, described by police as 'a local' opened fire from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay resort and casino.
