Baddest of Bad Actors is Dead. Joscelyn on Al Qaeda Connections.

The assassination of [Imad]Mugniyah has been widely reported in the press. Most accounts have gotten the details of his early career right. They have noted Mugniyah’s role in some of the first Islamist terrorist attacks against the United States, including the bombings of the U.S. including the bombings of the US embassy and U.S. Marine barracks in Beirut in 1983 and a series of hijackings and kidnappings throughout the 1980s and early 1990s. But what virtually all of the coverage in the major media in recent days omits is this: Imad Mugniyah was a vital ally of Osama bin Laden and al Qaeda.

Obama Leads Latest Oregon Presidential Poll

Before the Obama Faint-a-thons (here), before the Obama ‘plagiarism,’ before the Obama yo mama Cuban flag Che Guevarra incident, there was a Obama the demigod.
These latest Rasmussen poll results show it (here):

Oregon 2008 Presidential Election

Oregon: Obama Leads McCain, McCain Leads Clinton

Sunday, February 17, 2008

The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone poll in Oregon shows John McCain leading Hillary Clinton 45% to 42%. However, Barack Obama leads John McCain 49% to 40%. McCain leads Clinton among voters not affiliated with either major political party but Obama leads McCain.

Last August, McCain also led Clinton by three percentage points. Obama was not included in that round of polling.

The current poll finds Clinton leading McCain by four points among men but trailing the Republican by eleven points among women. Obama leads McCain by fourteen percentage points among women and by five among men.

McCain earns the vote from 76% of political conservatives when matched against Clinton. He attracts 69% of conservatives when matched against Obama.

Clinton is viewed favorably by 48% of voters in Oregon, unfavorably by 50%. Those figures are little changed since August.

McCain is now viewed favorably by 56% and unfavorably by 42%. That’s an improvement since August when just 46% had a favorable opinion of the Arizona Senator.

Obama is the most popular of all three candidates at this time—66% favorable, 31% unfavorable.
