Pres. Bush will address the nation tonight on Iraq. Our forces apparently killed another big guy in Somalia.
The Power LIne has a good roundup. See Somalia Says al Qaeda Leader Dead:
"Somalian officials say that according to American intelligence reports, the planner if the 1998 African embassy bombings, Fazul Abdullah Mohammed, was among those killed in the AC130 strikes that took place earlier this week. Airstrikes have continued, but the same Somalian officials say that American special forces will be needed to finish rooting out the remaining al Qaeda enclaves. They also say that they expect such American forces to be forthcoming.
American sources have not yet confirmed these reports. It has been widely rumored that special forces units are already participating in the fighting in Somalia.
I wouldn't be surprised if President Bush talks about the fighting in Somalia, and perhaps the death of Fazul, in his speech on Iraq tonight."
What are the Democrats doing today? They are debating the minimum wage.

"George Bush has the courage to dream of a good and decent something that never was -- a free and democratic Middle East -- and to stake his presidency on the hard and yes, imperfect work, of saying "why not?" Thank you for that, Mr. President.
As with Lincoln, there is a word for your behavior. The word is leadership."
