"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

There is no proof Saddam has ties to ....oh

Palestinian Liberation Front leader Abu Abbas was captured by American forces on the outskirts of Baghdad and is in U.S. custody, Fox News confirmed Tuesday.

His terrorist organization hijacked the cruise chip Achille Lauro in 1985 and is responsible for the murder of U.S. citizen Leon Klinghoffer.

Abbas was taken by American special operations forces during a raid Monday night, U.S. officials said, speaking on condition of anonymity.

A number of his associates were also detained during raids at several sites around the Iraqi capital, defense officials said. Commandos also seized documents and weapons.
