Two must-read posts on the war on terror, which I don't have time to adequately address -- and since the posts themselves are so good, I don't need to do so:

Michelle Malkin discovers the quality of gratitude among the groups whose representatives have been rescued by special-forces teams. Short answer: there is none.

All Things Beautiful asks the question, Who is Mohammad-Ali Ramin and why should we pay very close attention to what he has to say? As Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's philosopher and architect of the coming Caliphate, we may want to get to know him a little better, and Alexandra gives us a good look at the Iranian Angel of Death.

Be sure to read them both.

UPDATE: Michael Ledeen writes about Alexandra's post:

Both Ahmadi-Nezhad and his tutor are Shi'ites, she says at some length that they are Wahabi Sunnis. That's a pretty big mistake.

I'd have to agree.

UPDATE II: Alexandra has already posted a correction and send this note:

I made the correction a long time ago, and explained it in my comment section at the time, which you perhaps did not see. I would really appreciate it if you would point this out, as now the mistake that was on for a short moment, is living on in your post. It’s awful to have that on there, especially as you know this is a subject I know inside out, and have written about the most.

This is what I wrote at the time:

“I actually had something else written there which I had deleted and not corresponded properly. Thanks for the lesson though I obviously know that, as you might gather from dozens of other posts I have written on the subject.”

I owe Alexandra a bit of an apology -- I meant to e-mail her about this after I posted Michael Ledeen's comment and I simply forgot to do so. Alexandra is an excellent blogger and a very sweet person, and she deserved to hear from me right away on this update.
