Ramallah, West Bank – Officials say the remains of former Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat have been exhumed from his grave so international forensic experts can search for additional clues to his death. The Palestinian officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren´t authorized to disclose the news. The detection earlier this year of a lethal radioactive substance on clothing said to be Arafat´s sparked a new investigation into his death. Arafat died in November 2004 in a French military hospital, a month after suddenly falling ill. Palestinian officials claim he was poisoned

Polonium radioactivity will be easy to detect. If this Nobel laureate (like Jimmy, Hussein, Algore and Clinton) is positive it will have been a Russian job.

They are simply looking for a way to blame Terrorist Prime´s death on the Jews, as added motivation to go kill more Jews. Knowing whatever lies they concoct will be eaten up by the Palestinian-loving MSM, who will provide cover and excuses for them to go kill more Jews.

I know it is generally horrible to wish things like this but I will make an exception here. I very much hope he died of AIDS and that it was prolonged, painful, and humiliating. And I hope the forensics can confirm that, even though if true I know it will not be disclosed.

From the reading I have done, the polonium stuff that the widow is claiming was on his clothes had to have been put there by her recently. Because the polonium they are claiming was used as a poison, has a half life of approx. 138 days or so and would have therefore have been barely there. Not in the concentrations they are claiming. This is just another trick to blaim Israel for Arafat´s death.

Former Romanian Secret Policeman Ion Pacepa claims that the KGB had videos of Yasser Arafat engaging in homo sex acts with his own bodyguards and that using this as blackmail was how the KGB induced Arafat to do their bidding when alive.

Also may explain how he contracted AIDS.

The Jihadis are eager to say he was not a faerie.

Russia´s fleet has ordered Ukraine´s forces in the disputed Crimea Peninsula to surrender by 5 a.m. local time or face “a real assault,” according to a statement from a Navy commander. “If they do not surrender before 5am tomorrow, a real assault will be started against units and divisions of the armed forces across Crimea," Russia’s Black Sea Fleet Commander Alexander Vitko told the Interfax news agency Monday, Sky News reports.

Philip Seymour Hoffman was killed earlier this month by a deadly mixture of heroin, cocaine, and several other drugs -- this according to the NYC medical examiner. The medical examiner just released the official cause of death -- listing "acute mixed drug intoxication" as the reason PSH passed away suddenly on February 2nd. According to the medical examiner, the drugs in the actor´s system at the time of his death were heroin, cocaine, benzodiazepines (anti-anxiety) and amphetamines (uppers like Adderall). Mixing heroin and cocaine is often termed "speedballing." It´s the same mixture that killed Chris Farley, River Phoenix,

The Clinton Presidential Library released a batch of roughly 4,000 pages of previously-secret White House documents Friday, fueling questions about how history could affect the presidential ambitions of former first lady and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Several topics covered in Friday’s release relate to Mrs. Clinton, including records from the Health Care Task Force she headed and from her press office in the White House. The papers include internal musings by White House aides, including a warning that there was “great disquiet” on Capitol Hill about whether the Clintons understood the legislative process needed to enact the health

Tokyo - Mt. Gox, the troubled exchange for the virtual currency Bitcoin, filed for bankruptcy protection on Friday and said that it might have lost 750,000 of its customers’ coins, essentially all of them, in a hacking attack. The Tokyo-based exchange, which warned this month of a software flaw that may have allowed hackers to defraud it of Bitcoins, had halted all trading this week. Mark Karpeles, the company’s chief executive, wearing a suit instead of his usual T-shirt, bowed in contrition and apologized in Japanese at a press conference in Tokyo. “There were weaknesses in the system,” he said.

Thirteen years after Mr. Clinton left office, the release of 3,000 to 4,000 pages of internal memos and other papers may shed light on decisions he made during a tumultuous time and, just as significantly if not more so, possibly the role his wife, Hillary Rodham Clinton, may have played in shaping them.

As John noted below, President Obama spent an hour and a half on the telephone with Vladimir Putin discussing the Russian invasion of Ukraine. What was the conversation like? We can probably get a good sense of it by considering the account of President Bush’s conversations with Putin set forth by Peter Baker in his excellent book about the Bush presidency, Days of Fire. It’s well known that Bush and Putin got on well at first. But when the relationship soured, Bush became exasperated by his talks with the Russian bully. Putin seemed to delight in debating Bush.

FOR FIVE YEARS, President Obama has led a foreign policy based more on how he thinks the world should operate than on reality. It was a world in which “the tide of war is receding” and the United States could, without much risk, radically reduce the size of its armed forces. Other leaders, in this vision, would behave rationally and in the interest of their people and the world. Invasions, brute force, great-power games and shifting alliances — these were things of the past. Secretary of State John F. Kerry displayed this mindset on ABC’s “This Week” Sunday when he

But Apple chief executive Tim Cook has shocked some in the US with an impassioned attack on the single-minded pursuit of profit – and a direct appeal to climate-change deniers not to buy shares in his firm. Eyewitnesses said Cook, who succeeded Steve Jobs as boss of the technology giant in 2011, was visibly angry as he took on a group of right-wing investors during a question-and-answer session at a shareholders’ meeting.

The protesters were mostly college students who participated in a peaceful march that began at Georgetown University and ended outside the White House.
