Front Page: Tijuana, Omar bin Laden, and Cloned Men

  • A deadly battle raged yesterday in Tijuana, Mexico, between armed members of a drug cartel and government agents, leaving four agents dead. A subsequent raid of cartel property produced bodies of six more, possibly kidnapping victims. This is the second deadly clash this week in an area President Felipe Calderon has pledged to rid of dangerous drug cartels. Tuesday's fight ended with cartel gunmen breaking into the house of the police commander, and assassinating his family, including his 12 year-old daughter.
  • Osama bin Laden's son, Omar, 26, wants to be an "ambassador for peace" between Muslims and the West. Differing wildly from his father's brand of activism, Omar is planning a 3,000 mile horseback ride across North Africa to earn attention for the plight of peace. Along the route, bin Laden is planning events to raise money for children victims of war. bin Laden says, "It's about changing the ideas of the Western mind. A lot of people think Arabs—especially the bin Ladens, especially the sons of Osama—are all terrorists. This is not the truth."
  • A team of US scientists in LaJolla, CA, cloned two men using volunteer DNA and donated human eggs. The resulting embryos from the fertilization were exact genetic matches of the two men. The goal of the research is to create patient-specific stem cells for therapeutic use, though this instance stopped short of that end. Professor Jack Price of King's College, London, said, "This constitutes technical progress. It shows that the approach using human embryos does still have promise and it does provide justification for continuing that avenue of research."

The Omar bin Laden story is wonderful. He's choosing a very dangerous side...that of a peace-keeper.

Unfortunately i was near the Tijuana shoot out My offices are near the place were everything took place, me and my coworkers locked ourselves in, and hoped for the best. we could hear the shoot out, and when the bullets ceased we where all more calm, and 15 minutes after the DHL guy arrived at our door like nothing had happened we where stunned! i have to say, very committed the DHL guy, he made his deliveries that day ! My boyfriend was talking to me while it was happening he kept me calm, and i felt good thank god for him, i adore him even more :)

Maybe this is very closed-minded of me, but for some reason, I really don't trust the bin Laden boy. I'm hoping for the best, but part of me screams "this is a setup!!!"

The story about Omar, one of bin Laden's sons, is amazing. It's a wonderful idea and I admire him for "giving peace a chance," as the song goes. I wish him all the luck in the world.
