This is pathetic. The whole terrorism thing and all. I don't know if it will ever end. Ahh.

However, this article does point us to the intelligence of CNN:

The Ritz-Carlton Hotel was to have accommodated soccer players from Manchester United of Britain, who are expected to arrive Saturday in Jakarta on Saturday.

Still better than Fox News or MSNBC. They're sticking to canned programming. CNN Domestic is simulcasting CNN International.

First off, no terrorists in Iraq.

Second off, terrorism.

Third off, not a pointless war. Stupid, yes, but not pointless.

Fourth off, troops are leaving as we speak.
