Trusted Lieutenant Watch....

The latest installment. What do efficient propagandists do after a particularly bad stretch of news in Iraq? They trot out another Trusted Lieutenant, Confidant, Courier, Gatekeeper, Right Hand Man, Executive Secretary, or Man Friday. As you'll note from my bolds, it appears even by-the-book wire reporters can't resist getting in a dig on this farce. From Reuters:
Iraqi Interior Ministry forces have captured a senior aide to al Qaeda in Iraq leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, Iraqi state television said on Monday.

Iraqiya named the man as Abu Farouq and said he was captured with five others in the Sunni insurgent stronghold of Ramadi, west of the capital.

It said Abu Farouq al-Suri, previously unknown to the media, was captured by the Wolf Brigade, one of several counter-insurgency units operating within the Shi'ite-run Interior Ministry but accused by Sunnis of targeting civilians in their community.

The word Suri is Arabic for Syrian, indicating that the captured man may have come from Iraq's western neighbor.

U.S. military spokespeople were unaware of the capture.

U.S. and Iraqi forces often report the capture of senior al Qaeda operatives in Iraq.
And with this report, we get a new twist: consistent with Iraqization and standing up/standing down, the hometown team gets to take credit for one (note the "U.S. military unaware" touch). Something to watch going forward.

Really, I think most people overanalyze this stuff. If the Iraqi adventure affects the 2006 election, as in large Republican losses, we'll be out by 2008. It's as simple as that.

hankp, the "Iraqi adventure" has nothing to do with the Republicans. It's all about Israel and leaving Iraq would surrender Israel to the Arabs. We're never leaving...

Thirdeye, suppose you're basicly right. Why would that mean it had nothing to do with the Republicans?

Investment Securities - Basics of Trust Deed Investing
Want to start securities investing in Trust Deeds - but don't know how to get started?

If you need to secure your retirement, a stock that doesn't return (or downright plunges) can be your worst nightmare. When your money is tied up and not even keeping up with the basic interest rate your savings account would provide you need a change.

Trust deed investors, on the other hand, make money on interest every month. And as high as 10%, outperforming even your best IRA. You can earn 5 times more retirement income than your average savings account can provide with Trust Deed Investment Securities workforce investment act

Minimize the debt in your life
The goal of debt consolidation is to, eventually, minimize the amount of debt in your life. There will probably be some debt that you cannot remove, like your
mortgage. That's okay.

By reducing the number of bills you have to pay each month,
you may be able to decide what you want to do with your money.

Working out your financial standing and making that into
a plan is not a quick process. It takes hours.

Debt consolidation without this process will not help your
monthly predicament, so it is worth the time.

Debt consolidation without consideration is just another
loan. Debt consolidation with careful planning can be
your ticket to financial freedom...

There are numerous steps when arranging a funeral service, whether it be preparation for burial or entombment. These include, but are not limited to:
Obtain a Burial Certificate - Law requires a burial permit to be procured by next of kin, typically via a licensed funeral director or through the local Vital Records or Birth and Death Registration office. Usually, a nominal fee is charged to acquire a burial permit.
Select a Burial Site - Oftentimes, the deceased will have either orally requested a burial site before death, or even have written such a request in a will.
Transport Deceased to Burial Site - This can be accomplished through a mortuary or special car service, typically in the form of the traditional hearse. However, many opt to customize this aspect of the funeral procession, in terms of the vehicle selected for transportation. There's usually an additional charge associated with transporting the deceased.
Opening and Closing of Gravesite - This must be arranged with the cemetery ahead of time, and there's typically a fee associated with both the opening and closing of the grave. Fees may vary depending on the day and times of service.
Purchasing a Burial Vault or Liner - Burial vaults, or liners, encapsulate the walls of a casket and prevent the surrounding earth from collapsing the casket over time. Typically, these aren't usually required by law, but often mandatory at most cemeteries, as it helps with site maintenance.
Select a Monument or Grave Marker - It is customary, and sometimes required by cemeteries, to purchase and place a headstone, tombstone or memorial marker at the gravesite for identification and also ritualistic traditions.

It's sort of the electronic way of going cash only, in such a manner that you can still use the debit card to make payments electronically to your service providers. Just watch for any withdrawal fees that might be incurred by the secured debit or credit card provider too.
