SAUDIS WILL LET ISRAEL BOMB IRAN NUCLEAR SITE
The head of MI6 discussed the issue in London with Mossad chief Meir Dagan and Saudi officials after British intelligence officers helped to uncover the plant, in the side of a mountain near the ancient city of Qom.
The site is seen as a major threat by Tel Aviv and Riyadh. Details of the talks emerged after John Bolton, America’s former UN ambassador, told a meeting of intelligence analysts that “Riyadh certainly approves” of Israel’s use of Saudi airspace.
Foreign Secretary David Miliband acknowledged that the danger of a nuclear arms race in the Middle East was “particularly potent” and refused to rule out military action altogether but he insisted: “We are 100 per cent focused on a diplomatic solution.”
Gordon Brown, US Embarrassment Barack Obama and French President Nicolas Sarkozy have warned Iran’s leader Mahmoud Ahmadinejad that he must allow in weapons inspectors or face more sanctions. SOURCE
HUNTSVILLE, Texas -- A convicted hitman was executed Tuesday evening for a triple slaying in Houston nearly 14 years ago.
Christopher Coleman, 37, was condemned for his part in a scheme by a Colombian man who hoped to eliminate a drug debt by staging a robbery. Four people wound up getting shot in a car on a dead-end street. Three of them, including a 3-year-old boy, died.
"Ain't no way, fo fo," he said when asked by a warden if he had a final statement from the Texas death chamber gurney. "I love y'all."
It was unclear what "fo fo" meant, although in urban slang it can refer to a .44-caliber pistol or distinctive car rims made in 1984 and apparently popular in Houston. No relatives of the victims chose to attend the punishment and Coleman selected no personal witnesses to watch him die. SOURCE
HUNTSVILLE, Texas (AP) — A Texas man convicted in the shooting death of a suspected drug dealer during a robbery 18 years ago was executed Wednesday, the 17th this year in the nation's busiest death penalty state.
Stephen Moody, 52, strapped to the Texas death chamber gurney at Walls Unit in Huntsville, about 70 miles north of Houston, addressed his victim's mother and son as they watched through a window.
"I was unable to respond to you in the courtroom," he said. "I can only ask that you have the peace that I do."
After expressing love to his relatives and friends watching through an adjacent window, he said: "Warden, pull the trigger."
The lethal drugs began flowing into his arms at 6:20 p.m., and he was pronounced dead eight minutes later. Moody had asked that no last-minute appeals be filed to try to block his execution. SOURCE
