Michael Moore vs. Sean Hannity: Round 2, Robert Fisk on Armenian Holocaust,

Michael Moore vs. Sean Hannity: Round 2 By Ellen on Hannity - The rest of Sean Hannity’s lengthy interview with Michael Moore was aired tonight (10/9/09). I think Moore once again got the better of Hannity. But I just wish Moore had confronted Hannity on his record on racial issues, including his association with white supremacist Hal Turner (currently facing federal charges for threatened assault and murder of three federal judges), and his still-unfulfilled promise to undergo waterboarding. By the way, how many times does Hannity need to tell us how generous he is? I believe he mentioned it at least once in the last go-round with Moore, too. Videos after the...

In his new book on Bishop Balakian, Armenian Golgotha, the historian Peter Balakian (the bishop's great-nephew) records how British soldiers who had surrendered to the Turks at Kut al-Amara in present-day Iraq and were sent on their own death march north – of 13,000 British and Indian soldiers, only 1,600 would survive – had spoken of frightful scenes of Armenian carnage near Deir ez-Zour, not far from Homs in Syria. "In those vast deserts," the Bishop said, "they had come upon piles of human bones, crushed skulls, and skeletons stretched out everywhere, and heaps of skeletons of murdered children." When the foreign ministers sit down to sign their protocol in Switzerland on Saturday, they must hope that blood does not run out of their pens. Robert Fisk on Armenian Holocaust

World" href="" target=_blank>Turkey and Armenia Sign Pact to Normalize Ties By MARK LANDLER and SEBNEM ARSU on Zurich (Switzerland) After frantic, last-minute efforts by Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and other diplomats, Turkey and Armenia agreed to restore normal diplomatic relations.

Churchill did not know that King had trapped him into the photo session and grudgingly told Karsh – a Turkish-Armenian whose father saved his family from the Armenian genocide in 1915 through his friendship with a Turkish army commander – that he could take only one picture. Churchill's Havana cigar was between his lips but Karsh didn't want a portrait that included this old theatrical prop. So he plucked it from the old boy's mouth with the words: "Sir, I have an ashtray all prepared for you." By the time he got back to his camera, Karsh was to recall, "He looked so belligerent he could have devoured me." Bingo. Lion at bay. Robert Fisk

Bill Maher: Repeal 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' Because It Will Make Rush Limbaugh "Explode" (VIDEO) By The Huffington Post News Editors - On "Real Time" Friday night Bill Maher suggested that this weekend was the perfect time for President Obama to announce that he would repeal "don't ask, don't tell," due to the fact that Obama will be speaking to a gay rights group on Saturday and because of the march for gay rights in Washington Sunday. Maher referred to "don't ask, don't tell'' as a policy that "never made sense to begin with." The HBO host then delivered some particularly amusing reasons why Obama should end the policy. "Forget all the good arguments for repeal, like, because it's the right thing to do, or because it was promised in the campaign," Maher said. Instead: "Do it because it will make Rush Limbaugh explode like a bag full of meat dropped from a helicopter," he said. "Do it because it will make Sarah Palin go rogue in her pants."
