Tuesday Post
Some of the great stories in today's Washington Post, too good not to post:

--FBI Raid on Lawmaker's Office Is Questioned: Democrat Jefferson Denies Wrongdoing. Basically a Louisiana Congressman accepted $100,000 in bribe money (which he put in his freezer) from an FBI informant to promote high-tech business ventures in Nigeria, Cameroon and Ghana.

--Mustafa Setmariam Nasar, a Spanish-Syrian citizen tied to al-Qaeda, has his writings on how small teams of Islamic extremists could wage a decentralized global war against the United States and its allies dissected by the Post.

--U.S. Uneasy About Israel's Plans for West Bank. That's because the Israelis take defense of their country seriously. We could learn a lot.

--In Germany, Concern Over Racial Violence at World Cup. Well Duh, get some Nazis, British/Irish/Scottish hooligans together with some Muslims and a whole lot of booze and we can call it battle royale in Berlin.

--Finally, Hamas gunmen clashed with Palestinian police dominated by the rival Fatah party in Gaza City. Palestinian civil war in 3...2...1...
