Weekend Read: Memo to Bin Laden From the Philadelphia Cell

Michael Smerconish, who I think is one of the best political columnists in America and is a New York Times best selling author (on whose morning radio show on WPHT in Philadelphia I often appear), wrote a great piece for his latest Philadelphia Inquirer column. Even though it’s about the weak war on terror, it’s got football, golf, Anna Nicole Smith, Jerry Springer, and even Baby Suri. You’ve got to read it.

Praise be to God, on Sunday night, no less than the so-called American Broadcasting Co. televised something called a “docudrama” about our success.

Allahu Akbar actually means “God is greater” in reference to all other Gods.
Allahu Akbar is a shortened form of the Arabic phrase Allahu Akbar min kulli shay, which means “God is greater than everything.”
