Culture: James Bond’s calm demeanor tested by MGM’s cloudy future

  • The next “Bond” film is on pause due to its studio. OK, we admit it – we freaking love Daniel Craig as Bond. He’s like the best James Bond ever (sorry Sean Connery), so it saddens us to read that the next film in the series is in purgatory because MGM can’t find a buyer. The film series has reached new heights with Craig as star – his first “Bond” film, “Casino Royale,” was the most popular in the series’ history. Why would anyone hold 007 back? source

World: The CIA suicide bomber: A James Bond for the jihadist set?

  • Our James Bond, who is he?/He is Abu Dujana!/His motto: Let me die or live free!/Our James Bond, what did he seek?/Not power or money,/But justice for the weak.
  • A poem by militant blogger Asadullah Alshishani • Regarding the death of Humam Khalil Abu Mulal al-Balawi, also known by the pen name Abu Dujana al-Khorasani, who died in a suicide bombing attack on the CIA last week. al-Balawi was a double agent and used this to the CIA’s disadvantage. More interestingly, his anti-Western writings as al-Khorasani were celebrated by extremists. Books will be written about this guy and his mountain of contradictions. source
