Terrible Commuter Train Crash in DC

Extremely sad…

 

From CNN.com:

By late Monday, emergency crews had switched to recovery operations after halting rescue efforts.

One of the dead was the operator of one of the trains, transit authority officials said. The National Transportation Safety Board was investigating.

The crash occurred just before 5 p.m. on an above-ground track in the District of Columbia near the border with Takoma Park, Maryland.

Both trains were on the same track, and one of them was stationary when the crash happened, said John Catoe, Metro general manager. (more… )

Couric does a terrible job interviewing Valerie Plame

Katie Couric tried to portray the Wilsons are wreckless and bitter. What new information did Couric give us? Nothing. This was nothing more than at most a poor summary of what we already know. At least, it was a waste of time for the Wilson’s and the viewers. Where’s Mike Wallace, retired, Steve Kroft where is he? What about Bob Simon who was stationed overseas who had been captured during the first Gulf War? Instead we get Ms. Superficial asking questions like What happened when your name was leaked? Was the leak serious? The only stupid superficial question was wasn’t asked as what kind of handbag did you have with you? Maybe she did ask that question and it was edited out of the final version.

The only thing that was clear from this interview was that Valerie Wilson was an undercover CIA operative at the time she was outed by Robert Novak.

The death toll in the suicide bombings Tuesday in northern Iraq has risen to at least 500, local officials in Nineveh province said Wednesday.Iraqi Army and Mosul police sources earlier put the number at 260, but said it was likely to rise. 320 were reported wounded.

The Tuesday truck bombs that targeted the villages of Qahtaniya, al-Jazeera and Tal Uzair, in northern Iraq near the border with Syria, were a “trademark al Qaeda event” designed to sway U.S. public opinion against the war, a U.S. general said Wednesday. (more…)
