My Pet Jawa’s Dr. Rusty Shackleford

The Hindustan Times says that bloggers including Dr. Rusty Shackleford thwarted Al Qaeda on 9/11.

Hackers prevented Al Qaeda from releasing a videotape to mark the seventh anniversary of 9/11. Al Qaeda has traditionally issued a video or audiotape by either Osama bin Laden or Ayman al Zawahiri, the terror network’s two leaders, to mark their massive terrorist attack on the US.

As-Sahab, Al Qaeda’s media unit, had indicated earlier this week that it would post such a videotape on September 11. As-Sahab had banner images on the internet showing a silhouetted head with a question mark and the words, “Wait 11 September”.

The US-based intelligence group IntelCenter had speculated the video would be a message from Osama or Zawahiri with a recording of the last will and testament of Mohammed Atta, one of the leaders of the 9/11 attackers.

Sources close to US intelligence said, “Hackers knocked out Al Qaeda’s online means of communication, thus preventing them from posting anything to commemorate the anniversary.”

Western intelligence suspects two hackers who have targeted Islamicist sites before were responsible: Aaron Weisburd from Internet Haganah and Rusty Shackleford from the web group My Pet Jawa.

But, Rusty denies it and rightly so. I mean those guys at Al Qaeda do mean business if they ever get out of their holes in Waziristan.

And, even though Flap snapped the photo above of the REAL Rusty Shackleford and photoshopped it, he forgets where the original is – seriously.

Flap would like to see a cage match between Rusty and Adam Gadahn though. But, there are laws, Rusty, in mutilating a corpse.

Oh…………..

Colin Powell says he is undecided for whom he would back for President.

Former Bush Secretary of State Colin Powell said Monday that he has not yet decided which candidate to back in this year’s presidential race.

The election of an African-American president “would be electrifying,” Powell told a George Washington University audience, “but at the same time [I have to] make a judgment here on which would be best for America.

“I have been watching both individuals, I know them both extremely well, and I have not decided who I am going to vote for. And I’m interested to see what the debates are going to be like because we have to get off of this ‘lipstick on a pig’ stuff and get into issues,” he said.

There has been little doubt that Powell would endorse and support Obama even though he has contributed financially the maximum to John McCain.

Isn’t it all about race?

Come on now……

Atlantic Monthly editor plans to apologize to McCain campaign after controversial photos

This is the interview that Flap heard this morning on Fox News about the Greenberg photos FLAP.

A little late and no promises set in stone and who cares about a letter from Atlantic Editor James Bennet.

Note that James Bennet states Greenberg has not been paid and will not be due to contract violations. This will set off the legal fireworks and the backdown by the Atlantic.

Wanna bet?

BIll Burton on McCain’s lack of use of computer

More DEFENSE on the Barack Obama’s ATTACK televison ad: “Still.” 

A risky move to continue to MOCK John McCain because of war injuries – especially since Presidents cannot send e-mails anyway because of security concerns.

But if you are desperate…..

The ad:

Gallup-Daily-Presidential-T

Gallup Daily Poll

John McCain is maintaining his lead over Barack Obama in today’s Gallup Presidential Daily Tracking Poll.

While today’s two percentage point advantage for McCain is not statistically significant, McCain’s persistent two-point advantage across the three most recent Gallup Poll Daily tracking reports suggests he does hold a real, albeit slight, lead over Obama. It also suggests the race may be stabilizing at this highly competitive level after the tapering off of some, but not all, of McCain’s post-convention bounce.

McCain had trailed Obama by eight points around the close of the Democratic National Convention, but then moved into a five-point lead right after the Republican National Convention. The structure of the race is now slightly more favorable for McCain than it was prior to the entire convention period, when Obama typically led McCain by one or two points. (To view the complete trend since March 7, 2008, click here.)

Again, it will be the battleground states rather than the national polling that drives this race. But, the trend for McCain is unmistakable and has Team Obama scrambling to go negative.
