  • FILE - In this Wednesday, July 27, 2011 file photo provided by IntelCenter, an American private terrorist threat analysis company, purports to show Al-Qaida's new leader Ayman al-Zawahiri in a still image from a web posting by al-Qaida's media arm, as-Sahab.

  • LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Who's rushing into an attack now?

    I'm glad we have Washington Democratic Rep. Jim McDermott to keep us up-to-date on history in presidential decision making.
