Brag: On CNN...Beat: Thailand Sucks

I submitted an article to iReport.com (CNN's user generated news site) and within two hours it was the 2nd most viewed submission on the site in the last 24 hours. I got a phone call from a CNN producer and it has been chosen to be on CNN.

Here is a link to the article:

Please Digg it if you check it out.

The bad news is the content of my submission. I am not in Thailand now and am not going back until this situation settles down. For the first time I am actually scared for my safety and well being in Thailand. Checkout the article for more.

Al-Zawahiri's Message to America, Obama and the World

Prominent Al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri created a new video supposedly lashing out at Barack Obama.

Part 1
Part 2

While it is true that he did criticize Obama, the message was much more a criticism of the Bush Administration and our failed efforts in Afghanistan and Iraq.

There were also a lot of positive messages to Obama, the World and the American people. Especially if you read between the lines.

I found the clips he chose from Malcolm X very powerful, and telling, especially this one:

...one thing that I found in all of my travels was that all of the Africans, not only the Africans but the Asians, and the Muslims, look upon us as their long lost brothers...

I'm not advocating this man or his methods. His people have done terrible things to our nation, and we have done terrible things to theirs. I just wanted to point out to anybody who might read this, that his message was nothing like is being depicted by the American media.
