I hear Joshua singing in Heaven tonight


The story is sad and tragic and hard to grasp.

"It was a family moment — mom and dad in the front seat, three young sons tucked in the back eating McDonald's goodies. The Indiana family was heading to grandma's house in Chicago on Thursday evening, driving beneath snowy skies.

Six-year-old Joshua Woods was singing his favorite song, Bruce Springsteen's "Santa Claus is Comin' to Town." He loved The Boss, just like his daddy. As the family passed the northwest corner of Midway Airport, they took delight in the big airplane roaring toward the end of the runway. The plane was taking off — or so it appeared to the father, Leroy Woods, who told the story to family friend and lawyer Ronald Stearney Sr.

In an instant, Leroy Woods knew he was wrong.

The Southwest Airlines Boeing 737 smashed through a steel runway barrier, its great bulk plowing out onto 55th Street and crushing the Woods' white Pontiac Bonneville.

With one of the jet's turbines screaming in his ears, Leroy Woods tried to open his door, but couldn't. So he crawled out of the driver's side window. He plucked one son to safety. He could see his wife, Lisa, and their youngest son, Matthew, 2, strapped into the child seat.

But he couldn't see Joshua.

As passers-by ran to the chaotic scene, a bloodied Leroy Woods yelled: "Help! Help! My kids are pinned in there. I gotta get them out!"

But Joshua didn't make it. An autopsy showed he had suffocated."



...A fund has been established for donations to the family in memory of Joshua. Donors should write a check to "Joshua Woods benefit" and mail it to Centier Bank, 1276 N. Main St., Crown Point, IN 46307. Call the bank at (219) 663-7804 for more information.

There is not much more to say. Write a check, send it in, but also a note or letter of support and condolence.

Calling Mr. Fitzgerald?

**UPDATED AND BUMPED****

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!

About time! Also covering Michelle Malkin

UPDATE II: Looks like I owe my source big time as yet another tip comes true as the Washington Post is on the target list as well for the CIA Prison leak.

Is the lid about to be blown off Able Danger?

Those who have been wishing for a full blown Able Danger investigation are about to get their wish. The "gate" has been unlocked.

9/11 Iraqi Connection

With Democrats calling for yet more investigations into pre-war intelligence, and Republicans like myself pushing back to help their 'sudden amnesia”, the growing stories of Able Danger and even China Gate, are beginning to make news.

The three main theories about why Able Danger hasn't gotten out of the "blog stage", are 1) To hide Clinton era responsibility for stopping the 9/11 attacks, and/or 2) To hide the truth behind China-Gate, or 3) The facts show that there in fact was a direct link between Iraq and 9/11.

Taking either one you can see why the Clinton worshipping MSM for the most part hasn't touched the story. Of the later point, Democrats, the MSM and even some of our investigations state that there was no 'direct' link between Iraq and 9/11. Say otherwise and the MSM will slice and di…

Able Danger - Pulling Back the Covers of the real Clinton Legacy

First, let's dispense with the bull crap. The meeting between Mohammed Atta and Iraqi Intelligence officer Al-Ani, on April 8th, 2001 happened.

Yet, just don't mention it to the MSM, becaue since May of 2002, the MSM declared an all out assault on the story. A meeting incidently, that the Czech government has to this date stood by.

Let's review a little history:

October 13, 2001: Story of the meeting is leaked from somewhere in the Czech foreign service.

yet.....

October 20, 2001: Ny Times, John Tagliabue writes a story citing other Czech officials said the meeting never took place.

so.....

October 26, 2001: Czech Minister of the Interior, Stanislav Gross has a press conference not only confirming the orginal report but giving further details of Atta's other trip to Prague in June 2000.

then.....

October 27, 2001: The NY Times "recants" the October 20th denial.

The story continues it's oddessy of 'back and forth' until May 1st, 2002, when Walter P…
