FEDERAL JUDGE FINDS IRAN
GUILTY OF 9/11 ATTACKS
2011: A federal judge in Manhattan ruled
yesterday that Iran "shared responsibility" for the 9/11
attacks by providing "material support" - including
military training, travel facilities, money, planning,
safe haven after the attacks. This historic ruling has not yet begun to make
the waves that will come.... Here's the
Daily Caller. More links to background stories are here.
The first to comment (other that CNN's
resident idiot, Peter Bergen) were the Iranian
regime and Russia

claims as a U.S. "plot."

....The radicalization of Pakistan became clear on Jan. 4,
when a bodyguard protecting Punjab state Gov. Salman Taseer
opened fire on his boss, shooting him 20 times in the back
as other members of the security detail looked on.
Since the murder, the bodyguard has become something of a
national hero, telling the press that he assassinated Taseer
because he had campaigned against Pakistan’s anti-blasphemy
law, which condemns to death anyone who leaves Islam to
adopt another religion.
“The anti-blasphemy law is the main cause of violence
against Christians,” says Dr. Nazir Bhatti, a Pakistani
Christian activist in the United States.
