Seriously, Syria?

9 February 2012

Forbes — A group of hackers aligning themselves with Anonymous have leaked a series of e-mails from members of the Syrian government, including an exchange between the press advisor to President Bashar al-Assad advising him ahead of an interview with ABC News’ Barbara Walters that the “American psyche can be easily manipulated.” The e-mails were shown to a reporter at Israel’s Haaretz newspaper and published on its website earlier today. … On the same day the hackers also published a list of 78 e-mail addresses and passwords from the Syrian government and the URL of the webmail server they shared. That list was published on Pastebin. (A surprising 33 of the 78 e-mail addresses used passwords that were either “12345” or “123456” …


… The group of hackers are partly based in Israel, according to one source within Anonymous, who also believes they used relatively simple hacking methods to gain access to the Syrian mail servers. … A second set of e-mails from the hackers, also published by Haaretz today, showed an exchange between British Member of Parliament George Galloway and Assad’s media adviser. …

Arming Mexican Drug Cartels

7 February 2012

(to the tune of “Mexican Radio” by Wall of Voodoo)

I’m on a mission from Eric Holder
Because Obama is getting bolder
I throw the guns into my K-car
I gotta work underneath the radar
I tell the sellers, let ’em buy it
And whistleblowers, don’t you try it
Fast and Furious, the DOJ
Won’t testify what I did today

I’m arming Mexican drug cartels
I’m arming Mexican (don’t tell!) drug cartels

I’m working for the Democrat goal
Trying to prove the need for gun control
Need to find guns at the crime scenes
And the ends justify those means

I’m arming Mexican drug cartels
I’m arming Mexican (don’t tell!) drug cartels
I’m arming Mexican drug cartels
I’m arming Mexican (don’t tell!) drug cartels

I wish I could be overnighted
To where I can’t be extradited
Don’t want to answer the Congressmen
We’re gonna stonewall them again
I hear them talking law and order
US guns found south of the border
Know what they’re thinking, can they show it
What did we know, when did we know it?

I’m arming Mexican drug cartels
I’m arming Mexican (don’t tell!) drug cartels
I’m arming Mexican drug cartels
I’m arming Mexican (don’t tell!) drug cartels

Drug cartels, what the Hell?
Drug cartels, what the Hell?

I’m arming Mexican drug cartels
I’m arming Mexican (don’t tell!) drug cartels
I’m arming Mexican drug cartels
I’m arming Mexican (don’t tell!) drug cartels

Drug cartels, what the Hell?
Drug cartels, what the Hell?

Has Anyone Seen Al Gore Recently?

2 February 2012

I notice that they don’t name the perp, and that I haven’t seen the former VP in a while…

The Guardian – Climate change sceptics have acquired a new explanation for why glaciers are retreating: it’s not global warming, it’s theft. Police in Chile have arrested a man on suspicion of stealing five tonnes of ice from the Jorge Montt glacier in the Patagonia region to sell as designer ice cubes in bars and restaurants. … Scientists say Jorge Montt, part of the Bernardo O’Higgins national park, is retreating by half a mile a year, making it one of the world’s fastest shrinking glaciers. Environmentalists have cited it as evidence that man-made climate change is warming the planet. Sceptics have cited other explanations for retreating glaciers, but theft – until now – was not one of them. It may be the only case in which both sides agree human activity was to blame.

So it’s not CO2, it’s ice pirates that are shrinking the glaciers.
