A Few Things, and an Iraqi Constitution

Study says Suicide Bombers can Pass Detectors:
" 'Pedestrian suicide bombings might be better prevented by investing in intelligence leading to actions that prevent terrorists from prosecuting such attacks,' Edward H. Kaplan and Moshe Kress report in Tuesday's issue of Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences."

Why is Ariel Sharon Evacuating Gaza?

Came across the following quote on the internet the other day:
"No real American who loves this country can equate 48% of Americans who didn't vote for Bush with the enemies we are fighting. We need every one of us in the fight. That is seditious and un-American." [Anonymous Terrorism Expert]

I attributed it to anonymous simply because it was made on an internet forum, and not in a regular venue. Those who know who he is, know. For those who dont, I dont think it really matters, the quote is excellent either way.

A draft version of the proposed Iraqi Constitution has hit the web, thanks to the translators at the Associated Press - You can find a copy here: http://www.2and2.net/Uploads/Documents/Iraqi_Constitution.pdf
Its in Adobe .PDF format, and Acrobat-Reader will be required for viewing - it can be found Here.
I havent had a chance to read the whole thing yet, but I'll post my thoughts sometime tomorrow or over the weekend once I have.
