When three Navy SEALS took simultaneous shots at Somali pirates as they bobbed at sea, we learned what just released photos of dead terrorist in Osama Bin Laden’s compound tell us: Navy SEALS don’t miss.
Ignore hype we need to release OBL’s gruesome photo asap to prove he’s dead to quash impending drumbeats of a U.S. conspiracy he’s not. Why doesn’t the Pentagon issue a psy-ops press release that Osama is bunking with Elvis, in a plush safehouse, enjoying 72 virgins and, while the weather is perfect in heaven, hell is hot.
You know they know…especially if they are watching American networks, the support for the troops, The President, lionizing the US Navy SEALS, Obama’s scheduled visit to the memorial for 9-11 victims in New York Thursday, his surge in the polls, no longer on the ropes.
Deep down, as they lie on cots or beds of sand, shaking scorpions out of boots, double checking their AKs, the clock is hitting midnight, and if we listen hard, we just might hear hearts pounding a world away…Even the most cocky and arrogant among them understands there’s a reckoning and is fighting The Fear, fighting Uncle Sandman to stay awake, even as he slips away, clutching his weapon, nodding off into another nightmare ….then bolts upright…Is he wondering:
Did I hear a noise? A helicopter? Are SEALS coming for ME? Is tonight MY night?

As a journalist shivering in the cold Carolina rain before dawn, camera crew in tow, we were under orders from campaign staff NOT to knock for another 15 minutes.
It was 5:45 a.m. mid fall, 2004, and Elizabeth Edwards, a vice presidential candidate’s wife and mother of four, was a television show dream date. As a middle aged supermom with two children under five, she juggled cereal boxes for rebellious Jack and Emma Claire and a legal career turned campaign strategist for husband John. She joked that People magazine had chosen him as a hot-looking guy, but he was married to a wife in perpetual diet mode. She had endured the ultimate parent’s tragedy–losing a son, Wade, when the 16 year old died in a car crash.
Millions of women, and lots of mothers, hung on her every word, lessons life had taught her, and she was sought after by all the talk shows, to share about surviving, relearning how to find joy in life, what really mattered, which mattered to the good as gold Oprah demo. Now she was inviting us in to share herself to millions of ET and The Insider viewers, not only as a way to humanize her family, and by extension, the Kerry Edwards ticket. She said it was a typical school morning Chez Edwards.
“Come on in. I can’t let you all stand in the rain like that,” said Elizabeth, flinging open the door to her elegant, sprawling home outside Chapel Hill. “Want some coffee?” Read the rest of this entry »

Even before she began flunking polygraphs and investigators dubbed her the Putnam County Princes of Prevarication, Misty Croslin was giving herself away with what one top body language expert calls “signals of deception.”
“She was lying” from the start, psychologist and body language guru Lillian Glass tells The Bald Truth, after watching Croslin in news clips for over a year, from distraught babysitter who reported Haleigh Cummings missing, to child bride of Ronald Cummings, to accused drug trafficker facing decades in prison, to witness (or unofficial suspect) in the disappearance of his five year old daughter.
“She constantly repeats herself, and bites her lip after she talks about the case,” Glass tells Bald Truth Special Correspondent Shelley Kreimer, in an exclusive interview about tell-tale body lingo criminals and celebrities often unwittingly broadcast as clues they are lying to your face…like inadvertently tensing the jaw, or straying from typical voice patterns.
