Headlines @ Closin’ Time — 1/30/06

In this image from television transmitted by the arab news network Al-Jazeera on Monday Jan. 30, 2006, Al-Jazeera aired a new videotape Monday of kidnapped U.S. journalist Jill Carroll, showing her wearing an Islamic veil and weeping as she speaks to the camera, purportedly appealed for the release of female Iraqi prisoners here.

*L.A. radio host sparks Muslim anger: Now challenges Islamic group to denounce all terror, recognize Israel/Billboard Radio Monitor — If morning man Bill Handel’s trying to build an audience, he definitely is succeeding. But I’d check under the hood of his car each time he drives it, before turning on the ignition.

*Half of Americans give Bush thumbs-up: While 49% of those polled disapprove of president’s performance/WorldNetDaily — OK, GreenL, this one’s for you; what’s boosting his popularity — the humming economy? The Iran threat? Is it a cyclical thing?

*Al-Qaida No. 2 terrorist: Next attack on U.S. soil: In video, al-Zawahiri calls president ‘butcher of Washington and a failure’/WorldNetDaily — Take a hard look at that photo of the tearful journo above. This is al-Zawahiri’s work, terrorizing women and other unfortunates who wander into his demented clutches. And he calls Dubya a butcher. Al-Zawahiri’s has some real mental issues.

*Hillary Clinton: U.S. ‘impatient’ for woman prez/NewsMax — Agreed. Condi would be great.

*ABC Anchor, Cameraman Showing Improvement/Woodruff, Vogt ‘very seriously injured, but stable’/Houston Chronicle — Say what you want about the MSM, but journos routinely put their lives on the lines to bring you the news from hot spots around the world.
