  • North Korea Declares Nuclear Program:
    North Korea has submitted for inspection the long-awaited declaration of the extent of its nuclear program. Immediately after the move, the Bush administration announced it would remove the country, formerly on the "axis of evil" list, from the list of states who sponsor terrorism, as well as lifting commercial restriction on the country. President Bush said, "this can be a moment of opportunity for North Korea. If it continues to make the right choices it can repair its relationship with the international community."

  • Attack Kills 33 in Iraq:
    At least 33 people have been killed in two massive bombings in Iraq today, including 18 people hit by a car bomb in the northern city of Mosul. The US military gave initial reports from Mosul saying that another 71 civilians and nine policemen were wounded. The second attack was carried out by a suicide bomber, killing the mayor and 14 senior members of an anti-Qaeda group. US commanders have said that Mosul is the country's last urban stronghold of al-Qaeda.
  • Immigration Raid Leads to 160 Arrests:
    Federal immigration agents raided a used clothing plant in Houston, leading to 160 arrests, 70 percent of whom were women. The raid was the largest ever in the area, and the second major raid in Houston in the past two months. Two hundred immigration agents were involved in what was part of a yearlong investigation. A lawyer for the company said, “We want to abide by the law, and we're going to abide by the law. If we have an illegal employee, we don’t know it. No way. Tell us what the law is, and we’ll obey it.”

I am of course happy for the outcome but if they had listened to Colin Powel years ago as pointed out this morning this would have come down a lot sooner.

In determining whether a worker is undocumented Homeland Security is pretty clear about what "knowing" that you've hired an illegal covers: "knowledge which may fairly be inferred through notice of certain facts and circumstances which would lead a person, through the exercise of reasonable care, to know about a certain condition." The Houston lawyer's gonna have to work harder on his b.s.

Other news from Iraq would have to be Incredibly Good to offset the weekly death tolls.

Diplomacy helped the situation in North Korea. I am so confused as to why they don't want to try diplomacy to help in Iran.
