a mission finally accomplished
The date could not have been any more ironic.
It was May 1, 2003, that President George W. Bush in full flightsuit bravado appeared on a battleship off the San Diego coast to declare a "Mission Accomplished" in what the White House called its war on terror, marking what was declared as the end of major combat operations in Iraq. servicemen and women and untold thousands of innocent Iraqi civilians would die in the years of nonstop violence to come, or that Iraq had nothing to do with the 9/11 attacks that had caused America to mobilize against terrorism in the first place, or that the mastermind of the 9/11 attacks, Osama bin Laden, was very much still at large.
Now, on May 1, 2011 eight long years later President Obama, who was an obscure state senator from Illinois when alQaeda attacked the United States in 2001, stunned the nation Cardinals Karlos Dansby and the world with the longawaited news that bin Laden is dead, killed in a dramatic CIA operation in a Pakistan compound.
Perhaps fittingly, it was the Cradle of Liberty that quickly became the epicenter of a global celebration, as more than 45,000 fans at sold out Citizens Bank Park began spontaneously chanting "USA, USA" as smartphones lit up with urgent emails and a joyous murmur built. Minutes later, a fastgrowing throng that gathered around the White House fence broke into "The Star Spangled Banner."
This time, it really was a mission accomplished. http://www.cardinalsofficialnflstore.com/55_karlos_dansby_jersey_authentic_black_limited_cheap.html
A mission accomplished.
But http://www.cardinalsofficialnflstore.com/54_jasper_brinkley_jersey_authentic_black_limited_cheap.html not THE mission accomplished.
After all, bin Laden's death does not answer the question of what to do with more than 100,000 American and allied troops still fighting an illdefined guerillia war in Afghanistan some nineandahalf years after the first troops were sent there in the hopes that overthrowing the Taliban would also quickly yield bin Laden and other leaders of his terrorist network.
Nor does bin Laden's death offer any insight over what to do about the mess of the prison camp at Guantanamo Bay which became a global stain on America's reputation in Jasper Brinkley Authentic Jersey the years following the Afghanistan invasion, and which Obama has been unable to close despite promising to do so on the second day of his presidency. actions in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Gitmo.
The death of Osama bin Laden, a mass murderer on an unthinkable scale, is not only just but long overdue a real mission accomplished for decent people everywhere to celebrate today. We can worry about the rest of it tomorrow.
more I hear the more Obama seems very close to this over the last few months: in weekly meetings, deeply involved in five national security meetings recently. This was not a lucky break. This was the endpoint of several weeks of coordination. And Obama's cool throughout. As Donald Trump was birthering out, Obama was aiming right at this country's deadliest enemy. Everyone in both the Bush and the Obama administration who helped make this happen deserve our thanks, especially the unsung federal employees in the CIA and the special forces who are loyal to no party but to the constitution. But it remains obvious that the president who kills Osama bin Laden is a president who is going to be almost impossible to beat in 2012. Andrew Sullivan, getting it right.

A look back at Week 2 in Fantasy Football
Eli Manning, NYG (at STL) Chaching! Manning outshined his older brother by throwing for 260 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions in a rout of the Rams. He will get another easy assignment in Week 3 vs. the sorry Bengals, so make sure you get him active in all formats. Verdict: YAY!
Jake Delhomme, CAR (vs. CHI) Strike one. Delhomme got off to an awful start against the Bears and http://www.cardinalsofficialnflstore.com/35_javier_arenas_jersey_authentic_black_limited_cheap.html only managed 128 yards and an interception in a win over Chicago. No Fantasy points for victories, unfortunately. Verdict: DOH!AP Photo / SladkyDid anyone think Carson Palmer would get off to such a horrible start?
Carson Palmer, CIN (vs. TEN) Last week I said: "I'm going with this pick here because he simply can't be horrendous two weeks in a row, can he?" Uh, oh yes he can. OK, so the weather didn't help much, but that's my fault for not checking the Weather Channel. Verdict: DOH!
Dang it, why didn't I pick? Aaron Rodgers, GB (328/3/0); Jay Cutler, DEN (350/4/1); Kurt Warner, ARI (361/3/0).
David Garrard, JAX (vs. BUF) As I expected, Garrard found yards hard to come by in Week 2 as the Bills limited him to just 165 yards and an interception. He now has three picks this year, matching his total from all of last season. Verdict: YAY!
Matt Cassel, NE (at NYJ) Cassel did enough to win in Week 2, but his stats weren't great as he managed only 165 yards passing with no touchdowns. Following in the footsteps of Brady, that's a massively underachieving outing. Verdict: YAY!
Philip Rivers, SD (at DEN) I knew 3for3 in this category was asking too much. Rivers seemed intent on going passforpass with Cutler and finished with 377 yards, three touchdowns and an interception. Ouch. Verdict: DOH!
Dang it, why didn't I pick? Matt Hasselbeck, SEA (189/0/2); Chad Pennington, MIA (112/0/0); JaMarcus Russell, OAK (55/0/0).
AP Photo / ZurgaLarry Johnson is anything but as happy as Larry in Kansas City.
Larry Johnson, KC (vs. OAK) A bad start to this category, as Johnson was held to just 22 rushing yards on 12 carries. Then he came out after the game and complained about his role with the team. LJ, shut up and play, ya clown. Verdict: DOH!
Brian Westbrook, PHI (at DAL) Like the filling in a sandwich, Westbrook was a tasty pick here in between two bland pieces of crappy storebrand bread. The Eagles stud finished with only 58 yards on the ground, but he ran for two touchdowns and caught one other. Verdict: YAY!
Laurence Maroney, NE (at NYJ) I said Maroney was a risky pick, and I was right. He started off well with eight early carries, all be it for 16 yards, but then got hurt and never returned. I'm blaming Belichick for everything. Verdict: DOH!
Dang it, why didn't I pick? Julius Jones, SEA (127/1); Darren McFadden, OAK (164/1); Jonathan Stewart, CAR (77/2).
Fred Taylor/Maurice JonesDrew, JAX (vs. BUF) The Jaguars were always in for a tough time in Week 2 against the solid Bills D and their two RBs found the yards hard to come by on Sunday. JonesDrew did find the end zone, but was held to 17 yards rushing, while Taylor rushed 14 times for 49 yards. Verdict: YAY!
Julius Jones, SEA (vs. SF) Man, this one really came out of nowhere. With no receivers and a makeshift offensive line, Jones still somehow managed to produce 127 yards and a touchdown. Verdict: DOH!
Jamal Lewis, CLE (vs. PIT) When I saw the weather forecast for Sunday night I was worried that Lewis would get a ton of carries and a bunch of yards against the Steelers. However, that wasn't to be as the Browns offense struggled once again and Lewis was held to 38 yards on the ground and 28 in the air. Verdict: YAY!
Dang it, why didn't I pick? Ryan Grant, GB (20/0); Ricky Williams, MIA (28/0); Michael Turner, ATL (42/0).
AP PhotoLarry Fitzgerald is a tough man to cover with his size and speed.
Larry Fitzgerald, ARI (vs. MIA) While I Limited Rob Housler Jersey wasn't happy with my Dolphins' performance on Sunday, I couldn't help but smile as Fitzgerald looked like a man among boys while dominating the Miami secondary for six catches and 153 yards. Verdict: YAY!
Muhsin Muhammad, CAR (vs. CHI) We're going to have our first MEH of the week here as Muhammad suffered mightily from a poor outing by Delhomme, yet still managed to come up with five catches for 59 yards and had a touchdown called back for holding. Verdict: MEH
Terrell Owens, DAL (vs. PHI) Owens did his usual stellar work on Monday night as he lit up his former team for 89 yards and two touchdowns. While he's had better nights, that will do for me. Verdict: YAY!
Dang it, why didn't I pick? Calvin Johnson, DET (129/2); Santana Moss, WAS (164/1); Brandon Marshall (18/166/1).
Everyone on the Seahawks (vs. SF) I think I would consider a guy lost for the year with a torn MCL (Logan Payne) and another guy out 34 weeks with a calf strain (Seneca Wallace) a bit of a Week Javier Arenas Elite Jersey 2 dud. Verdict: YAY!
Devery Henderson, NO (at WAS) As I expected, David Patten was the most active WR for the Saints in their Week 2 loss to the Redskins, and that meant only a small outing for Henderson, who managed just two catches for six yards. Verdict: YAY!
Andre Johnson, HOU (vs. BAL) Now then, what do I consider this one. Considering I didn't know they were going to cancel the game and that hopefully some of you benched him anyway because I www.cardinalsofficialnflstore.com/84_rob_housler_jersey_authentic_black_limited_cheap.html suggested it, I'm going to consider this one a moral victory! Verdict: YAY!

A look http://www.cardinalsofficialnflstore.com/12_andre_roberts_jersey_authentic_black_limited_cheap.html at the cornerbacks
061912 FLOWERY BRANCH: Falcons Frostee Rucker Elite Jersey cornerback Asante Samuel loosens up with some high kicks for the first day of minicamp in Flowery Branch on Tuesday, June 19, 2012. Today we examine the cornerbacks.
They are playing with fire (future cap) regarding Grimes It is like people who did not fill up when gas prices were more reasonable window on the secondary is as small as any on this team It is as dangerous of play as when they tied their wagons to vet like Joe Horn Samuels seems to be more talented, but this team generally misuses a player talents. Will Nolan break that model while depending on what is essentially the same staff? It will be interesting to watch Still not buying that of the DeCoud model!Anything less then a Super Bowl will be a fail season. The time is now! No excuses, no failures. Roddy White Julio Jones should be Pro bowl players this season. Mr. Turner should have over a thousand yard season, this is just the offense, not mentioning Matty Ice until he proves he is the truth to be the Leader of the Dirty Birds what have you done for me lately Coach if this season is a bust get to packing cause you are outta of here. Just the truth sir! NOW LET PLAY SOME FOOTBAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLL!!!!!!!!!The thing that really get me is the fact that Owens is still on the team after essentially stinking it up in 75% of his opportunities to play. I would rather count him as a sunk cost and allow a guy like Walls the chance to see if the game is too big for him. Owens has shown time and again that he can cover NFL receivers.
Hoping Franks also gets a shot to play more. He actually Limited Andre Roberts Jersey has shown some promise when given the opportunity last season.
In short, I really wish I could get in the mind of Tim Lewis and understand what he sees in Owens to keep wasting time trying to develop him when there is likely equal promise with younger guys who have yet to have the opportunity to be tested. I could also say the same thing about Ray Hamilton and Lawrence Sidbury. We have three top corners and several talented new stars emerging. We finally have the slot covered with Dunta able to play mantoman with the best of them. I have watched Darin Walls mature and I like everything I see about him. His stock is rising. He may emerge this year as a very capable backup and will probably see lots of action by the time the season is over. I hope coach Nolan can get Chris Owens back to where he was during his first year. He is one of the fastest players in the NFL and hits like a ton of bricks. He just needs to solidify his coverage. The slot is not his forte and he seems to have lost confidence. He may emerge as a key player, but he may also wash out if he can demonstrate solid coverage and better awareness of his assignment. There may also be a rookie in the group that will emerge as a keeper. This will be a great group to watch as we approch the season. I am optimistic that one of the top CB groups in the NFL will emerge from training camp and we NEED it. This is where coach Nolan ability to design the defense around player strengths will make a big impact. GO FALCONS! RISE UP!Can wait for the Falclowns to take the field
We must be really bored with our one man team to be patrolling Falcant articles and talking about our one man team from the arm pit of the south. Don know about you, but I am glad Brees signed his contract or we would likely go 016. By the way, you and Aliethra should come check out my new single wide trailer for some gumbo and po boys next Friday. Reminds me of my shack back in the ghetto bayou in New Orleans. Then he go on to get a good contract from some team next year because the Falcons have made it clear he not a guy they want long term and he be too expensive to franchise. Just saying. As for getting hurt, he was hurt last year and still got the franchise tag saying someone in the higher ups must have recognized that he is the man and he will be paid accordingly! Now since we are talking about cornerbacks (let me say it again) TALKING ABOUT CORNERBACKS, lets stick to www.cardinalsofficialnflstore.com/98_frostee_rucker_jersey_authentic_black_limited_cheap.html subject. We will have one of the best secondarys in the game this year. Period. Nothing else to say about that. Dont need to prove it we will just play the games. Tired of bashing bloggers on a Falcon blog. That should say enough about these swamp rats! They hanging on a Falcons Blog and for what reason? Ask yourself that question. I am sure you can find some blogs to talk to other fans! Nice info DLED. Lets roll Birds, time to prey!

A little bit of African rain forest in Long's Park
Martin Cradick's trip to Africa in 1992 with his wife, Su Hart, began as a http://www.cardinalsofficialnflstore.com/4_jay_feely_jersey_authentic_black_limited_cheap.html vacation and led to a lifestyle change.
The Cradicks spent years with the Baka Pygmies residents of the central African rain forest in Cameroon while learning about their music and lifestyle.
Cradick loved the songs so much he recorded his first album with his take on the Baka music. His variety came from his bandmates, forming Baka Beyond and drawing together the sounds of a violin, Irish whistle, drums, guitar and bass, as well as the haunting vocal yodeling associated with the Baka people.
"It's kind of a bizarre thing my interpretation on their interpretation of the Baka music over the years," the group's lead singer said with a thick British accent. Sunday, July 31, at Long's Park, where the group will perform in the annual Summer Music Series.
Critics have tried to define their sound, but the group's website describes it as "Africanrhythm, Celtic soul." Though Cradick said the genres blend together well, using the natural Baka beat as the center of their sound.
The group rarely performs in English. Instead, members utilize the Baka language, as well as Gaelic www.cardinalsofficialnflstore.com/90_darnell_dockett_jersey_authentic_black_limited_cheap.html and French.
Cradick said language adds an important piece to the sound, forcing the vocals to serve as an instrument instead www.cardinalsofficialnflstore.com of merely a vehicle for delivering lyrics.
"Most [songs] are a fantastic load of rubbish when you hear them," he said. "The difference comes in the words, in understanding and communicating the music."
His passion comes Limited Jay Feely Jersey from the universal language of song a characteristic Cradick learned from the Baka people, who rely on music and sounds for safety and protection while living in the jungle all of their lives.
A witness to how little these people possessed, yet how much they had to offer, Cradick founded the Global Music Exchange. It's his way of giving back to the people who taught him so much about their music, he said.
Through the exchange, Cradick has recorded some of the Baka musicians live and donates a percentage of his earnings from those specific albums to the people.
"At the time, we said, 'Yeah, yeah, yeah, electric light,' but that's one of the first things they asked for and really needed," Cradick said.
But when it comes to his own needs, Cradick finds the most rewarding moments come from his music the joy it brings to him and his band, and the thrill it can provide audiences around the world.
Having faced the challlenge of making it in the music industry, Cradick said, he's aware of the many good bands out there \h so many, in fact, that good groups can often go unnoticed.
"Since [age] 13, I dreamed of playing music. To make a living out of it is great," said Craddick, who added that at this point a change in career isn't likely for him.
"I'm 50 years old now and probably not cut out to do Cardinals Darnell Dockett anything else," he said with a laugh. every year since 2003. This concert at Long's Park marks its return to the summer music series, which it also played in 2005.
The outdoor atmosphere of the park and the patron mix allows the group to branch out and try new things.
"We want them to leave with a big smile on their faces and their legs a little tired from dancing," Cradick said.
But the message and soul that audience members can take away from the experience still resonate with the lifetime musician long after his performances are over.

a Heisman finalist
STANFORD, Calif. Andrew Luck seems to excel at just about everything.
His ability to thread passes with pinpoint accuracy makes him a possible No. 1 overall draft pick whenever he decides to go to http://www.cardinalsofficialnflstore.com/93_calais_campbell_jersey_authentic_black_limited_cheap.html the NFL.
His shoulderflattening hit on Limited Calais Campbell Jersey one defender and bonecrushing tackle on another became instant YouTube hits and showed he can do so much more than sit back in the pocket and pass.
He's a high school valedictorian now majoring in architectural design at Stanford, showing he has the smarts to go with the impeccable athletic skills.
"The only think Andrew can't do very well is sing," teammate Doug Baldwin www.cardinalsofficialnflstore.com/15_michael_floyd_jersey_authentic_black_limited_cheap.html said. "He's a horrible singer. That's about the only thing he can't do."
Fortunately for Luck, he's a finalist for the Heisman Trophy not American Idol, and he will be judged by his onfield performance not his shower renditions of "Ain't No Mountain High Enough."
On the field, Luck measures up against just about anyone. He broke John Elway's singleseason school record with 28 touchdown passes while leading the Cardinal to more than 40 points per game, a schoolrecord 11 wins, and a berth in the Orange Bowl against Virginia Tech.
He has completed more than 70 percent of his passes for 3,051 yards and has rushed for 438 more, including three runs of at least 50 yards.
"He's very rare in that I just don't see any flaws in his game at all," USC coach Lane Kiffin said. "He's going to be a great, great player. It's really amazing watching him and what he's able to do before the snap. They change so many plays and protections. The guy that I compare him to most is Rich Gannon when Rich was playing real well in the NFL so smart and so prepared and able to run as well when things aren't open."
Numbers don't do Luck justice as much as particular moments do. There was the weaving 52yard run through the entire Wake Forest defense early in the season or the hit on USC's Shareece Wright that possibly saved a touchdown and has generated more than 1 million YouTube hits.
There was the 44yard pass to Baldwin against Arizona State he threw almost from his knees as he was falling down. And then there was the cold shoulder that knocked down Cal's Sean Cattouse on the way to a 58yard gain that got Baldwin in trouble with his coaches because he watched the play in awe instead of blocking down field.
For coach Jim Harbaugh, it was a simpler moment that stood out an 18yard pass to the opposite sideline on third down on the opening drive against Oregon State that had to fit in between two defenders in a window so small that Harbaugh described it as the strike zone on a pitchback toy.
"It still amazes. It's every game there's something similar to what we've seen and something altogether new," Harbaugh said. "He's the best football player I've been around, on the same team or coached. And he's equally one of the finest young men I've ever been around too."
That's heady praise considering Harbaugh was a Heisman finalist himself who played on a pair of top 10 teams at Michigan, spent 15 years as a player in the NFL, and was an assistant coach on the Oakland Raiders when they won the 2002 AFC championship.
Harbaugh said Luck best epitomizes the mission of the Heisman Trophy, which is supposed to go to the player "whose performance best exhibits the pursuit of excellence with integrity."
That could be seen as a shot at two of the other finalists. Auburn quarterback Cam Newton was briefly ruled ineligible after his father was accused of working with the owner of a scouting service to get up to $180,000 for his son to play for Mississippi State.
Oregon running back LaMichael James was suspended for the seasonopener after pleading guilty to a misdemeanor harassment charge against his exgirlfriend.
"If I win the award, I hope it's because of my merits on the field and nothing regarding anyone else's off the field or anything like that," Luck said.
While Luck acknowledges it would be quite a shock if he beat out heavy favorite Newton for the award, it would be a notable accomplishment for Stanford if he finished as runnerup.
Cardinal running back Toby Gerhart was beaten out by Alabama's Mark Ingram last year in the closest vote ever.
No school has had two different players finish second in the voting since Leroy Keyes and Mike Phipps did it for Purdue in 1968 and '69.
With Luck as a finalist, Stanford will join traditional football powers USC, Oklahoma, Miami, Ohio State, Florida State, and Notre Dame as the only schools in the last 25 years to have different players finish www.cardinalsofficialnflstore.com in the top four in successive seasons.
What makes the feat even more remarkable is that it comes at a program that won just one game in 2006 and hasn't won a bowl game since 1996.
"It speaks volumes for where this program is headed, where it is right now, what a great job coach Harbaugh has done, and what great players are at Stanford right now," Luck said.
Luck is clearly the greatest, earning comparisons to some of the past great quarterbacks at Stanford like Frankie Albert, John Brodie, Jim Plunkett, and Elway.
While Limited Michael Floyd Jersey he downplays the personal accolades and is always first to give credit to the offensive line or his receivers, his teammates know better.
That's why they're enjoying every minute they have with him and never take for granted the greatness they see each day on the field.
"With Andrew you notice all of it because it's just amazing," Baldwin said. "The things Andrew does, you just don't usually see those. Guys know that. You look on highlight film of the NFL and you don't see the things Andrew does at the college level. We're definitely in amazement, but we're thankful to have him on our team."
LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. Auburn's Cam Newton won the Davey O'Brien Award as the nation's top quarterback Thursday night and also walked away with the Maxwell Award as the best allaround player in the country. His next stop will be New York, where he's the favorite to win the Heisman Trophy on Saturday.
