Many Returning Soldiers Bear Scars Of Service – News Story – WMUR Manchester

This is the final story on the 11 o’ clock news and where my friend Matt Katka tells  a small portion of his amazing story. What the news failed to mention was that Matt was rewarded the Purple Heart and the Medal of Valor for his efforts in Afghanistan. He was shot in the head and had 3 surgeries to repair the back portion of his skull. The Lord miraculously preserved his life and this is just another cause to thank our God for what he has done in the lives of his children.

Happy Veterans day to you all. On a day like this it is good to take time and think about the men and women whom you may know that have served for our country. One of those men was my friend Matt Katka. His life and death story is the most incredible story that I have ever heard of and amazing preserving power of  our Lord.

George W. Bush: waterboarding saved London from attacks

George W. Bush has claimed that information extracted from terrorist suspects by “waterboarding” saved British lives by preventing attacks on Heathrow and Canary Wharf.

In an exclusive interview with The Times, the former US President offered a vigorous defence of the coercive interrogation technique: “Three people were waterboarded and I believe that decision saved lives.” He denied that waterboarding, which simulates drowning, amounted to torture.

Asked if he authorised the use of waterboarding to get information from the captured al-Qaeda leader Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, he was unequivocal: “Damn right!”

In his new book he writes: “Their interrogations helped break up plots to attack American diplomatic facilities abroad, Heathrow airport and Canary Wharf in London, and multiple targets in the United States.”

The best?

It’s hard to argue with a list like this. As I was reading this a few days ago I immediately was thrown off by the fact that none of my favorite athletes were on this list with the exception of Michael Jordan.  Michael Jordan only #8 all-time??!! Are they nuts? But after you read the achievements of the folks on this list, it is quite hard to argue. I have my preferences like Bob Gibson, Barry Bonds, Barry Sanders, Walter Payton, Ted Williams, Pele and the likes… whittling down all of the great athletes to just one single list of 10 is a very hard thing to do indeed.  Everyone of us could make up our own top 10 and we would all be close to being right. I just thought this list was interesting to say the least. I, however, do disagree with Dave Winfield at #3. If we are going by just longevity then Brett Favre or Cal Ripken Jr. That’s all. Add as you please athletes that you think deserve this Top 10 list.
