Bulgarian Bus Bomber Definitely Not In Possession of a Michigan Driver's License. Absolutely Not

I'm the first to admit that I have absolutely no proof whatsoever to back this up, only the flag in my head being thrown when definitive judgements are thrown out via the media scant minutes after a tour bus explodes with a load of Israeli tourists in Bulgaria.

The various media reports in the hour after the bombing were still quite divided over whether it was a suicide bomber or whether there was a bomb among the belongings either on the bus or in the undercarriage luggage stow. Understandable that the investigators and witness statements take time to put together.

But it seems that the very first item they could agree on was that the bomber had a fake Michigan driver's license. I find it extremely odd that they are taking DNA samples from the smear remaining of the bomber to identify him, more lately described as a backpack-toting, bermuda shorts clad male- so they obviously don't know who they have there. Yet without knowing who possesses the document, a Bulgarian investigator was able to tell the driver's license was bogus.

Either our state Driver's License records are far more accessible to any street-level flatfoot in the world, or they rushed international forensic document specialists to the still burning bus and shouldering paramedics out of the way.

I believe it is just possible that someone doesn't want a Continental US connection being made here.

Egypt's Geographically Challenged President

Over the weekend, newly elected Egyptian President Mohamed Mursi vowed to make Jerusalem the new capital of Egypt. For those geographically challenged, that's in Israel, folks. Mursi ran as the choice of the Muslim Brotherhood, where one of the head clerics Safwat Hagazy was video-ed at a campaign rally:

“Our capital shall not be Cairo, Mecca or Medina. It shall be Jerusalem with God’s will. Our chants shall be: ‘millions of martyrs will march towards Jerusalem’,” prominent cleric Safwat Hagazy said, according to the video aired by Egypt’s religious Annas TV on Tuesday.

Naturally our Golfer In Chief called Mursi on Sunday to congratulate him over the weekend.
