From the Publisher

When Allied forces invaded Iraq in April 2003 their intelligence operations began looking for the WMD, quickly realising no such weapons existed. Instead they become faced with an ever-increasing spiral of extremism and violence.

But it’s here. Thousands of troops are here, including Americans, Germans, Italians, Finns, and Brits. And this time, it seems the U.S. military is in Iraq to stay. The temporary tents and dining hall erected to house U.S. forces—including special operators, CIA agents, and private military contractors who hunt, kill, and interrogate for America—are being replaced with permanent buildings.

    'Serious Failings' By Russia In Deadly Beslan School Siege, European Court Says

The court is ordering Russia to pay the plaintiffs nearly 3 million euros ($3.2 million). Russia's Justice Ministry says it will appeal the ruling. Under the European court's protocols, any party to the case has three months to appeal to the Grand Chamber of the Court. On Sept. 1, 2004, Besla
