Ari Fleischer's Wit and Madeleine Albright's Stiletto Heels. (the Insider)


How many Americans will die because the French and other U.N. poltroons delayed a U.S. strike to give Saddam Hussein more time?

* Those Guernica covers on the New Yorker and Harpers are based on a cubist painting by Pablo Picasso commissioned as propaganda by the Communist Party of Spain as the Nazis and Soviets fought a surrogate civil war in that country.
