Gingrich tells Christian group of affair

AP
Excerpt:
WASHINGTON – Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich was having an extramarital affair even as he led the charge against President Clinton over the Monica Lewinsky affair, he acknowledged in an interview with a conservative Christian group.

“The honest answer is yes,” Gingrich, a potential 2008 Republican presidential candidate, said in an interview with Focus on the Family founder James Dobson to be aired Friday, according to a transcript provided to The Associated Press. “There are times that I have fallen short of my own standards. There’s certainly times when I’ve fallen short of God’s standards.”

Gingrich argued in the interview, however, that he should not be viewed as a hypocrite for pursuing Clinton’s infidelity.

Excerpt:
Students at Baghdad’s Mustansariya University frustrated a US raid on Thursday with a large protest, Aswat al-Iraq reports in Arabic.

“The American forces tried this morning to raid Mustansiriya University in the East of Baghdad, but the students made a massive demonstration protesting the trespassing of these forces on the university campus,” a student told the news agency, adding that the action “forced these forces to withdraw from the university.”

“The students were upset at the clear violation of the university campus,” he continued, “which is no longer a sanctuary after the explosions that targeted it and the attempts of the American forces to enter it.”

Mustansiriya University is the second largest university in Iraq, after Baghdad University, and was the site last month of a suicide bombing which killed and injured dozens of its students.

Dems Must Embrace Their Power THey Have NOW to End The War: but First Must Overcome Their Fear

OP-ED News
Excerpt:

The Republicans are very smart. They know that the Democrats have the power to stop the war.
Yes, The Democrats have the power and the votes right now to stop the war. They don’t need Republican help. They don’t need Joe Lieberman. They don’t even need all the bluedog dems.
The problem is the Republicans have, brilliantly, made the Democratic leadership afraid to use their power. They have framed the use of that power as anti soldier, anti-troops.
The Democrats have the votes now to cut off funding for the war. This will not suddenly stop shipments of food or ammo to soldiers in Iraq. THe military has billions, maybe even trillions of dollars in “black money pots” stashed all over the planet, hidden from congress.
The pentagon could probably run the war for another year or two, without another nickel.
But a refusal to further fund the war unless the troops are withdrawn would cause a confrontation between congress and the president. It would cause a confrontation that would force the Pentagon to re-evaluate their relationship with the commander and chief and the congress
