Adios, Azzam

The Shawal Valley is a remote place, even by the standards of Pakistan's Federally Administrated Tribal Areas. Located along the Shawal River between steep mountain walls just north of the border between South and North Waziristan, it is the last redoubt of al-Qaeda and Taliban fighters who fled Afghanistan after the 2001 U.S. invasion. Numerous Pakistani military offensives in the lawless region, most recently in June 2014, have failed to dislodge them, although their ranks have been decimated, a handful of targets at a time, by hundreds of CIA drone strikes.

On Jan. 19, one such strike involving four remote-controlled missiles blew up a compound that the CIA had designated as an al-Qaeda safe house, killing seven suspected militants and injuring four. According to an anonymous Pakistani official who spoke to NBC News shortly after the attack, those killed included "non-Pakistani foreign fighters." It wasn't until April 23 that the White House announced that one of those foreign fighters was none other than the American face of al-Qaeda: Adam Yahiye Gadahn, a.k.a. Azzam al-Amriki or Azzam the American.

Still, after watching the amazing surveillance video in the news report after the jump, I totally want to go as the Riverside 21-year-old next Halloween.

Huntington Beach Attorney Matt McLaughlin Files Ballot Measure Requiring Gays To Be Shot

Fly this flag at your own risk.

How do you stop the encroaching gay menace threatening the well-being of [one particular interpretation of the Christian] God's country? Well, if you're attorney Matt McLaughlin, you crawl out of the Mailbox Express box you practice out of in Huntington Beach and you spend $200 of your own money to file a ballot measure called the "Sodomite Suppression Act". This charmingly titled proposal re-criminalizes homosexuality and makes it a capital crime.

The text also specifies that the death penalty must be carried out by "bullets to the head or any other convenient method." Good call there: Wal-Mart has been sold out of rifle bullets the last few times we went to stock up for Gay Marksman Days.

X Files Actor, A Savage Rapist, Loses Appeal That All-White Jury Robbed Him Of Justice

PrinceEdwardMarylandcover.jpg
An X Files supporting actor who beat, burned, raped, sodomized, mutilated and tortured his wife in Orange County during a four-day crack cocaine binge in 2005 has lost an appeal to overturn his conviction and a 144-year prison sentence.

After both the California Supreme Court and a state appellate court refused to grant him relief in prior years, Prince Edward Maryland hoped federal judges would agree that he's innocent and that his 2007 trial under Judge John Conley's supervision was a travesty of justice based largely on supposed prosecutorial misconduct.

Maryland--an African American who claims he is a prolific screenwriter and is related to ex-Dallas Cowboys star Russell Maryland--insisted the government's cheating worked because he faced "an all-white jury" and his victim was Caucasian.
