Aaron at Untergeek ruminates on the New York Times' story about charter school test scores. I agree that there may be a selection thing going on. Kimberly Swygert is away from the office, but I'll be interested in her take when she gets back. Also want to hear what charter school expert and edublogger extraordinaire... Read More
The indispensable Command Post is keeping on top of the terror charges filed today against suspected al Qaeda arrested last week. Excerpt from Sky News: What say you now, Howard Dean?
Shelley Powers doesn't think much of me, but she has a beautiful blog and some interesting thoughts on women, sex, media and blogging. Plus, some great photos. Go drop by. Update: Shelley and I do agree on one thing--the blogging excellence of Michele Catalano. Her thoughts on Cutler-y here.
Who needs Norm Mineta? Jonathan O'Keefe sends a link to this new citizens' effort to take individual responsibility for airline security: Check it out.
GOP U.S. Senate candidate Alan Keyes (formerly host of MSNBC's "Alan Keyes is Making Sense") announced yesterday that he now supports slavery reparations. The Chicago Tribune (registration required) reports: Two years ago on his MSNBC show, Keyes ridiculed this very idea. Responding to his
Daniel Pipes notices an important admission from President Bush: The "War on Terror" is a misnomer. Still, Bush hasn't gone far enough. Read the whole thing: Naming the Enemy.
Tom Ridge made a splash yesterday with news that al Qaeda is recruiting non-Arabs. He used the opportunity to deride racial and ethnic profiling as an effective counterterrorism tool. Here's a piece I did today in response. The fact that al-Qaeda is using some non-Arab recruits does not render racial/ethnic/religion/nationality profiling moot. As long as... Read More
From the Boston Globe: Police see surge in gang attacks using machetes The Globe is too P.C. to actually report it, but the rise is due to uncontrolled illegal alien gang activity. See Heather Mac Donald for the real scoop. Meanwhile, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms comments: "When are... Read More
American journalist Micah Garen and his Iraqi translator were apparently abducted in Nasiriyah on Saturday while walking in an open market. Garen, a founder of an independent photo/documentary company, Four Corners Media, was investigating archeological sites in Iraq. His portfolio of images from southern Iraq is here. He published a report in Archaeology magazine on... Read More
Vanessa Kerry has won a Fulbright scholarship to study medicine in London. According to the Fulbright web site, the federally funded grants for the international exchange program generally provide round-trip transportation; book and research allowances; maintenance for the academic year, based on living costs in the host country; supplemental health and accident insurance; tuition, in...

Brian Sain, a police SWAT member for 15 years who works as a detective in the Port Arthur (Texas) Police Department, has established a program to support snipers serving in the War on Terror. The goal is to "help real snipers get the real gear they need to help keep us safe." From the "Adopt... Read More
The New York Times discovers the phenomenon of jet-setting liberals (registration required) who preach environmentalism and practice Gulfstream eco-hypocrisy: When the leftist film maker Michael Moore used his publisher's plane on a recent book tour, for example, critics lambasted him for enjoying the corporate high life. The Hollywood activist Laurie David, the wife of Larry... Read More
There's a new movement, modeled on the South Africa divestment campaign, to put pressure on public companies that do business with terrorist-sponsoring states: analyzed terror investments in the 50 states and found that America's Top 100 pension systems invest between 15 and 23 percent of their portfolio in companies that do business in terrorist-sponsoring...

Lawrence Auster discusses Yale University military historian Mary Habeck's important insights into the key to Jihadist ideology and strategy.
Steve Sailer is asking Michael Barone to put up or shut up.
According to the New York Post, Jim McGreevey is enjoying an out-of-the-closet bounce in the polls. (Do note, however, that the sampling error margin is plus or minus 5 percentage points.) No wonder he was so giddy at the press conference last week.
Am back home after a week on the road for the book tour. While I was gone, my son sprouted two more teeth and learned to pull himself up in his crib and my daughter learned to do the hula hoop. As I started sifting through e-mail and catching up with the blogosphere this morning,... Read More
A lot of buzz about the book this week. Tom Ikeda and Scott Oki attack it in a Seattle P-I op-ed. Like Greg Robinson, they say none of the information in my book is new, which is untrue. They cite the conclusions of the Commission on Wartime Relocation and Internment of Civilians without addressing any... Read More
I'll be discussing my book in an in-studio interview on the John and Ken show (KFI Los Angeles) at 5 pm Pacific time today. I've been a John and Ken fan since they worked in Atlantic City, New Jersey, on WOND-AM. They moved to Southern California around the same time I did. I've been on... Read More
Two weeks ago, the New York Times and other media outlets reported with much alarm that the Census had given data to the Department of Homeland Security on where Arab-Americans live. Civil liberties groups called the disclosure a "dangerous breach of the public trust" and likened it to the Census's compilation of similar information on... Read More
I was saddened to see that Brian Lamb's C-SPAN program, "Book Notes," is being cancelled. When I appeared on the program a year and a half ago (to discuss my first book, Invasion), I was deeply impressed by Brian Lamb's thoughtful questions. It was clear that, unlike many other interviewers, he had actually taken the... Read More
New column's up. All (or almost all) of the intervenors in Arthur Jacobs' case were Japanese-American leaders or groups. Jacobs comments, "It is interesting to note that those who we are told fought so hard for justice for members of their ethnicity, fought even harder against a person who was not a member of their...

By now you've probably heard about Kamran Shaikh, the Pakistani man who allegedly took videotapes of skyscrapers, a Texas dam, and various public transportation systems. The news reports note that Shaikh is being detained for immigration violations, but I'm not sure any major news outlet mentioned that Shaikh says he entered the U.S. illegally by... Read More
The San Francisco Chronicle reports today that Bay Area leftists are heading to New York to protest the Republican National Convention. Some organizers are discouraging the infamous "Black Bloc" guerilla group from creating havoc--or, at least, are advising them to do so in Gap and Eddie Bauer attire: Good thing the New York Police Department...

Did your history teachers ever tell you about what happened on the tiny Hawaiian island of Niihau shortly after Japan's attack on Pearl Harbor? If not, check out this excerpt from my book.
The New York Times reports that Transportation Security Agency officials will take over screening of passengers on New York City helicopter tours. The new policy comes on the heels of intelligence suggesting that al Qaeda may utilize such helicopters to carry out terrorist attacks. What kind of checks were being done by the private helicopter-tour... Read More
This Washington Post account of a drunk, naked intruder who broke into a Wheaton, Md., house and tried to rape a four-year-girl is horrific enough. But look at the t-shirt the alleged intruder is wearing in his mugshot:
Check out this headline from the Arizona Daily Star: The incident actually involved 12 illegal aliens with two vehicles trying to crash through the U.S.-Mexico border. Not only do the headline and story fail to mention the law-breakers who tried to mow down the U.S. Border Patrol officer, but the headline also manages to sneak... Read More
The FBI is damned if it tries to gather intelligence, and damned if it doesn't. Its agents are damned as bigots when they attempt the most modest of surveillance measures based on race, religion, or other politically incorrect criteria, and they are damned as bumblers when they fail to act on information gathered through those...

Department of Transportation Secretary Norm Mineta, who was evacuated as a young boy from San Jose, Calif., to a relocation center in Heart Mountain, Wyoming, has been the Bush Administration's most ardent foe of racial profiling. Read my new New York Post column on him here. Update: 9/11 Commissioner John Lehman agrees with me. According... Read More
Two weeks ago I noted that David Brock's media watchdog group was mocking Michael Savage for saying that illegal aliens can vote. Now that the New York Times is saying pretty much the same thing as Savage, will Brock issue a retraction?
This afternoon, during the 5 o'clock hour (eastern time), I'll be discussing you-know-what on Sean Hannity's radio show. Tonight, it'll be a double-header with appearances on both Hannity & Colmes and Scarborough Country. I'll wrap up the day with an appearance on Alan Colmes' radio show. Want more? Check out's book review and Q&A.... Read More
Time magazine has a broad outline of the contents of the al Qaeda computer files seized in Pakistan last week. On a related note, my airplane reading included a fascinating and stunningly detailed article in The Atlantic Monthly (subscribers only) that sheds light on just how important the Pakistani computer confiscation really is. The author... Read More
A few weeks ago, I discovered a blog called See What You Share on P2P. The site's owner, Rick Wallace, was alarmed at the amount of sensitive military information that could be accessed by the public via peer-to-peer networks such as Gnutella. He was able to cull photos, documents, and letters from American soldiers and... Read More
Here's a great story of a small-business owner in Seattle fighting onerous regulations that restrict competition in the name of the "public interest." From yesterday's Seattle Post-Intelligencer: Some minimal training standards make sense, but this is ridiculous. I wrote about this topic several years ago
It was wet and dreary outside in a typically Pacific Northwest way, but the big crowd at Cedar Park Church in Bothell last night provided a remarkably warm welcome. Thanks to all who came out. The showing from the other side was rather anemic, and contrary to the biased Seattle Times report (and yes, that... Read More
Looks like I'll be getting a warm welcome in Seattle later today... "Book defends internment: Japanese Americans react to argument by ex-Seattle writer"
University of North Carolina law professor Eric Muller has been guest-blogging about my new book this week over at The Volokh Conspiracy. He enlisted the aid of his friend and author Greg Robinson in his endeavor. I welcome the debate from the Eric-Greg tag team and others who have actually read the book and are... Read More

Martin at passes on new info about another arrest of a South African (or at least someone traveling with a South African passport) with suspected terrorist ties knocking at our Southern border: Related news here and here
Today's lead homeland security news is the story of an Albany, N.Y., mosque raid that uncovered a shoulder-fired missile purchase plot. Before the Deaniacs and Ashcroft-bashers start foaming again about the suspicious timing of the arrests, remember this: Similar plots have been uncovered before. In the late 1980s, thug leader Jeff Fort of El Rukn,... Read More
A plague of persistent P.C. follies in America's airports... The invaluable Heather Mac Donald weighs in on the sacrifice of the Computer Assisted Passenger Prescreening System, or Capps II, at the hands of the civil liberties brigade. Annie Jacobsen and Clint Taylor follow-up on Flight 327. Time magazine talks to a federal air marshal who... Read More
Hey, kids. Been up all night (nothing unusual there) at the hospital with my 4-year-old daughter, who hasn't been able to hold anything down for the past 24 hours (water, Coke, jello, Cheezits, pedialyte popsicles...all of which ended up on the family room couch). Seems there's a nasty stomach bug going around. After some IV... Read More
I've been interested in vaccine policy ever since my husband and I were pressured to vaccinate our three-day old son for Hepatitis B--a virus that is almost impossible for him to contract except through intravenous drug use or sexual contact. The usual argument for giving a low-risk newborn the Hep B vaccine is that a... Read More
If you thought the idea of driving while eating corn on the cob was dangerous, get a load of John Kerry campaigning while packing corn. To be fair, Bush doesn't look any better. Update: W. ate it raw.
Blogger Tim Worstall posts an interesting update to the Amy "Hold the Mayo, Abort Two Triplets" Richards story. In a response to a letter-writer, Richards gives further reasons for "selectively reducing" two of her unborn children rather than putting them up for adoption: Notice how she slips "medical risks" in--a new rationalization that was not...

San Francisco Chronicle columnist Debra Saunders is right on in this column on the Lori Hacking/Laci Peterson/hyped-murder-of-the-day cable news phenomenon: Read the whole thing.
I agree with this op-ed in today's Washington Post by David B. Rivkin Jr. and Lee A. Casey, which questions the conventional wisdom that the Supreme Court slapped down the Bush Administration in the "war on terrorism" cases. An excerpt: Boalt law school professor John Yoo struck a similar chord in a Wall Street Journal... Read More
