Bush has asked Congress to shift $49 million dollars away from the INS and give it to a new task force that would track immigrants with potential ties to terrorism.
Hopefully, this is the start of the complete replacement of the current INS with an agency that can at least grant visas to suspected terrorists in a timely manner.

This takes the cake:
The government of Zimbabwe demands that England should compensate the white farmers whose land has been seized, despite the fact that it was the Zimbabwean government that stole the land in the first place.
Thousands of Iranian University students have protested the death sentence of a professor who questioned Islam.
I have said before, and I will say it again. When thousands are protesting against the current government in a totalitarian regime, you know that the writing is on the wall for the said regime. The government of Iran will be overthrown shortly after the invasion of Iraq. You can quote me on this.
A Palestinian terrorist snuck into a kibbutz and murdered 5 people. One of them was a mother reading to her two sons.
A British study has just come out with a report that says that smoking marijuana is even worse than smoking tobacco.
Personally, I'm for the legalisation of marijuana, and the end of the drug war. But doesn't this study harm many anti-drug war protesters rhetoric about how marijuana should not be illegal because it is not dangerous? Does it harm the argument against the drug war?
The Iraqi parliament has reccomended the rejection of the U.N. resolution.
Now who was surprised by this? Anybody? Anybody at all?
