Thanks to p7tms and ://trinity for pointing me at… Wild zero told me about this story a few days ago, but it reminded me about the terrorist misidentification… I know it got virtually zero press in the US, but quite a few of the people that they named as terrorists — and showed pictures of — had nothing to do with the attacks. They just happened to have similar names. It would be sort of like charging every “John Smith” in the United States just because a “John Smith” committed a crime.

"What sort of intelligence agency doesn't know that there are thousands of Saeed Alghamdis in Saudi Arabia?" Alghamdi said. "It is like accusing Tom from New York."

Anyway, was jam-packed with excellent links… Here are some that I thought were particularly worth checking out:

Note: All of the above links are mainstream media, not fringe or indie media.

On a much more pleasant note, we adopted a cat. I can't believe the neighbors would leave it outside for weeks at a time and then yell at us for feeding it. They actually threatened to call the humane society on us for taking care of it! Of course, after doing so, they made no effort to feed or house it themselves… They just didn't want anyone else to do it either:

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
