  • What’s the latest news from America’s favorite man-made disaster, Afghanistan? At least two dozen people were killed at the polls during the latest and almost certainly rigged parliamentary elections. Officials are already reporting “sales of fake voter cards printed in Pakistan, intimidation by local power barons and the absence of a national voter list.” Meanwhile, the Louis Berger Group and other awful corporations are still receiving sweet no-bid contracts to pretend to build power plants in Iraq and Afghanistan. And yes, these monsters are probably still overcharging the U.S. government. [McClatchy]
  • Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is in New York, the capital of western decadence! During an interview with the infidel Associated Press, Mahmoud claimed that “the future belongs to Iran.” Mahmoud also said, “He who controls the past commands the future. He who commands the future conquers the past,” and then excused himself so he could finish playing his Command & Conquer computer game. [Seattle Times]
  • Hurricane Igor visited Bermuda during its “Storming for Honor March on Washington” and tore up a whole bunch of boats. [Boston Herald]
  • Oh, also: A car bomb killed 36 people in Fallujah. [Fox News]
