We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Dead Man Walking,
although it must be said that The Company (and yes what's your face woman at the other blog they do call it The Company) has allow Phillip Agee who wrote "Inside the Company, A CIA Diary" back in the 1970's in which he named names of deep covert operations people, who were then killed by the bad guys, to live.
I couldn't understand that at all when I was inside. If the CIA hit him they'd be blamed sure, but if he was hit by a bus they'd have been blamed too. So why not go ahead and kill a former CIA operative turned traitor? But he still roams the earth.

Habu, but remember, crime was legal in the 70s and the 90s. We get every other decade, the mobsters get every other decade. It's a mexican stand-off.
Jihadi Forum Outlines Use of Poisons for Terrorist Attacks
By Abdul Hameed Bakier
"Al-Qamar instructs fellow jihadis to mix cyanide with any type of body lotion that enlarges skin pores. According to al-Qamar's theory, the skin will then absorb the cyanide in three to five seconds. Al-Qamar claims that experiments have already been completed on rabbits, which he explains have a similar blood pressure to humans. In the experiments, the cyanide-lotion mix quickly killed the rabbits. As part of this plot, al-Qamar suggests that jihadis smear the door handles of cars owned by Americans with small quantities of the cyanide-lotion mixture, or spray it in the air-conditioning vents of their cars or houses"
Great link on Instapundit on where Bill Arkin messed up.
The article goes on to say that Arkin should have picked on Michelle Makin of Michael Yon or a writer who could give it back. A 21 year old Army man cannot defend himself, nor can his CO in today's PC world.
If this Arkin guy is so tough I'd love to meet him at the dojo for a few friendly forms.
