The North Carolina Attorney General, Roy Cooper, put the final nails in the coffin that was the Duke Lacrosse "rape" case on Wednesday. Cooper officially dismissed the charges of sexual assault that had been levied against the three former Duke Lacrosse players seen above; Dave Evans, Collin Finnerty and Reade Seligmann.
The Attorney general stopped short of declaring that the prosecuting Durham district attorney, Mike Nifong, was guilty of prosecutorial misconduct but did accuse him of being guilty of "a rush to accuse".
It's clear to me that Nifong was pursuing his own politically correct and politically ambitious agenda rather than the truth. He should be disbarred for prosecutioral misconduct and dismissed from his public office.

Iran decided to release the 15 kidnapped Britons yesterday. So to review, in the last several days, Iran managed to commit an act of war as well as violate the Geneva Conventions by airing footage of coerced testimony. Clearly, this was a contrived incident meant to provoke America and England. Showing grainy footage of Western captives is not the kind of behavior one would usually associate as the practice of an official nation state, more a desperate terrorist group. Iran has behaved exactly as the terrorist state that it is. Unfortunately for the people of Iran, for all immediate practical purposes, there is no difference between a terrorist state and a state that is mereley run by terrorists.
