Front Page: al-Qaeda Grows, Italy, and Tornadoes

  • In a report to a Senate panel yesterday, the director of national intelligence, Mike McConnell, said that al-Qaeda is growing and building strength from within Pakistan. McConnell said that Osama bin Laden and his deputy were still in charge, and gaining in their ability to recruit and train new lieutenants. Al-Qaeda is concentrating on improving the last way they could attack the US: from within. This report is based on evidence that al-Qaeda might be training new Western militants, who can blend in with US society, to carry out attacks.
  • Italy's President Georgio Napolitano dissolved parliament yesterday. The upheaval comes after Prime Minister Romano Prodi resigned last month, and talks to form an interim government failed. Silvio Berlusconi is already unofficially campaigning. Italy is set to hold these new elections on April 13-14, its second elections in two years.
  • 47 people are dead after tornadoes raced through Arkansas, Kentucky, Tennessee, and Alabama yesterday. The twisters joined forces with harsh winter weather across the nation's midsection. During Super Tuesday speeches yesterday, candidates paused to send thoughts and prayers to those affected.

Storms were pretty bad last night. We managed to avoid most of the damage and tornadoes where we live.

My thoughts are with any of the people affected by the tornadoes yesterday. Tornadoes are terrifying. My biggest fear. :(
