Front Page: Key al-Qaeda Leader Killed, Bush, Paulson Promise Improvements, Austrian Incest Dad Fit For Trial

  • Key al-Qaeda Leader Killed:
    The US military has announced that the second-in-command of al-Qaeda in Iraq has been killed. The militant leader Abu Qaswarah had ties to senior al-Qaeda leaders in Afghanistan and Pakistan. He was killed in a raid on Oct. 5 in Mosul, a city described as the military as one of the group's last strongholds.

  • Bush, Paulson Promise Improvements:
    President Bush and Treasury Secretary Paulson said today that confidence and cash will rehabilitate the economy, but that improvements will take time and patience. Bush said he's confident the economy will "come back" in the long run. Speaking on the $250 billion bank investment announced yesterday, Paulson said, "There's no doubt that the way to get the maximum bang for the taxpayers here was to invest in banks."
  • Austrian Incest Dad Fit For Trial:
    Josef Fritzl, the Austrian man accused of holding his daughter in the cellar for 24 years and fathering seven children with her, has been declared mentally fit to stand trial. The court said the psychiatric evaluation of the 73-year-old found him lucid enough, but that he suffers from a "profound personality disorder."

With 14 trillion in mortgage liability, 700 billion isn't even 5%. It's a joke.

I hope Fritzl spends whatever's left of his life in jail. How many Al-Qaeda Second In Commands have been killed? Seems like quite the dangerous position.

you have to love how this little $250 billion infusion didn't make the news nearly to the extent of the other one. it's like it was one of those under the radar things since we all saw how the last go around was so detrimental to the market. i'm sure they know what they are doing - but it would be nice to know more information on the impact that we'll fee. i'm still baffled by the case in austria - who could do that, and how could he think that what he was doing to her was ok? i hope that we find out more from the trial.

Josef Fritzl "suffers from a 'profound personality disorder.' You don't say? No doubt he'll spend the rest of his days locked up. What a revolting man. :sick:
