Odd that this date is a nodeshell. I wonder what happened on this day in history?
- Hurricane Irene stopped by for dinner
Irene ended up killing 22 people on the eastern coast of the United States. In parts of the Bahamas, 90% of homes were destroyed.
- NATO sent a hello to Ghaddafi's home town
This was when the United States was causing problems for the Ghaddafi government in Libya. They dropped a large bomb on his home town. His government fell soon afterwards. Sirte was getting softened for the rebels to come in.
- Senior Al Qaeda person earns virgins
Atiyah Abd al-Rahman, the chief operating officer of Al Qaeda, was targeted by drones. The missile reportedly struck al-Rahman in the mountains of Waziristan bordering Afghanistan.
- Wikileaks still causing problems
Wikileaks confirmed that the United States was bullying other nations to accept genetically modified seeds. Eventually, this led to a backlash where nations banned all GMOs. Just another case where Monsanto and friends own their government overlords.
