China asks US not to send "wrong signal" to terrorists

BEIJING, Aug. 17 (Xinhuanet) -- China Tuesday asked the United States not to send the "wrong signal" to terrorist forces operating in western China in its handling of Chinese detainees at the US base at the Guantanamo Bay in Cuba.

    Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Kong Quan made the remarks when asked to comment on a report that the United States will not send those suspects back to China and was striving to find destination for them elsewhere.

    The spokesman asked the United States to handle the issue according to international rules and with a view toward international anti-terrorism cooperation and bilateral ties.


Al Jazeera:

McGreevey ‘sex scandal’ was an Israeli Intelligence operation

A few days ago we were all stuck with news that Gov. James E. McGreevey, the a one-time rising Democratic star, announced his resignation admitting that he is a gay. He confessed to have had an extramarital affair with a man that he said threatened to undermine his "ability to govern."

Two sources close to McGreevey, and who refused to have their names mentioned, said the man involved in the affair was Golan Cipel, an Israeli whom McGreevey met during one of his trips to Israel...

...And here Foreign Policy/Intelligence Columnist Andy Martin uncovers some secrets to this regards, and asserts that McGreevey sex scandal was an Israeli Intelligence operation.

"People have been confused by the McGreevey sex scandal," says Martin. "But McGreevey's dilemma is not a gay sex scandal. It is an Israeli intelligence operation gone sour. This is not a scandal about 'sex.' It is a scandal about 'secrets', Martin says.

"McGreevey said he had sex. He did. Golan Cipel says he is not gay. He's not. They are both right. Mr. Cipel was a junior Mossad case officer, originally posted to New York under official cover. The Mossad is well known for using human sex toys. McGreevey was lured into a relationship that was intended to penetrate New Jersey's homeland defenses...

...'Gay sex' is being used to conceal the real nature of the betrayal. This was a blackmail scheme intended to place Golan Cipel in a position of intense interest to Israeli intelligence.


Hoo boy.
