Steve Emerson on the Bill Bennett radio show

Probably the best talk show on radio AUDIO HERE

Discussing among other things, a release coming from his Investigative Project on Terrorism, a cache of video tape of Imam Rauf, which he describes as damning. This is due sometime next week. The gist: Rauf is a wolf in sheep's clothing. Stay tuned.

They also discuss the admirable work of LCDR (ret) Zhudi Jasser, president of The American Islamic Forum for Democracy, someone I've posted about before

He makes an important point with which I tend to agree: If someone like Jasser was wanting to build an Islamic center near ground zero, he would have no trouble with it, because Zhudi is clearly an unambiguously not Islamist. On the other hand Imam Rauf, like CAIR (unindicted co-conspirators in the Holy Land case) is someone that is ambiguously situated vis-a-vis Islamism. Hence, the discomfort.

The Detestable Julian Assange: Rapist. Update: Not rapist? But molestation perhaps.

UPDATE LINK Wherein Assange and his minions make reference to the dark conspiracy against his good person.
The secretive Australian remains under suspicion of a lesser crime of molestation, which would not lead to an arrest warrant. Molestation covers a wide of range of offenses under Swedish law, including inappropriate physical contact with another adult, and can result in fines or up to one year in prison.

Assange called the allegations "without basis" in a Twitter posting and questioned the motives behind them in an interview with a Swedish newspaper.

The tabloid Aftonbladet quoted Assange as saying the allegations had caused damage even though the rape suspicion was dropped, because WikiLeaks' "enemies" could use them to discredit the site.

"I don't know who's behind this but we have been warned that for example the Pentagon plans to use dirty tricks to spoil things for us," he said in comments translated to Swedish. "I have also been warned about sex traps."

Seems the crack team of Swedish prosecutors might have jumped the gun. You know why. Because THEY are pressuring...

Stay tuned. I'm sure this is not the last we'll here about this. And, didja notice Asschapeau has dyed his hair yet another hue? Trying to go mufti there brave Sir Robin? Or do you think that you're such an international rock star that you have to emulate David Bowie?

Via Wings Over Iraq (facebook edition), this BBC story is either your schadenfreude news of the weekend, or evidence there is a just deity

Inclusive disjunction intended).

Ms Rosander said there were two separate allegations against Mr Assange, one of rape and the other of molestation.

She gave no details of the accusations. She said that as far as she knew they related to alleged incidents that took place in Sweden.

Media reports say Mr Assange was in Sweden last week to talk about his work and defend the decision by Wikileaks to publish the Afghan war logs.

The allegations were first reported in the Swedish newspaper Expressen.

And like any intertube "leak" it's all over the web now isn't it Mr. Assange?

What's that old saw? "Live by the sword...die by the sword?"

Run away brave sir Robin.

Swedish police have been trying to contact Mr Assange, but have not yet been able to, she told the BBC.

Countdown to conspiracy claims from Asschapeau and his fellow travelers..

In 5...4....3...2...1...

RIP Jack Horkheimer
