Over the past weekend the White House Correspondents held their annual dinner. Only 14 presidents, beginning with President Calvin Coolidge in 1924, have attended this grand affair.
The White House Correspondents Association is in charge of the planning of the event. After all it is their dinner where reporters receive awards for journalism and students receive scholarships. They choose the hotel venue, the menu and the evening’s comedy host. It is a tradition since the 1940s for the correspondents and their guests-usually actors and other entertainers along with politicians to be entertained by the witty observations of the evening’s featured hired speaker.

Widely circulating reports from Arusha, Tanzania say a former Rwandan Army official who planned and executed the 1994 slaughter of more than 500,000 people was convicted of genocide today. The high ranking military officer is sentenced to life in prison. Experts say this is the most significant verdict of a U.N. tribunal set up to bring the killers to justice.
The court said Col. Theoneste Bagosora used his position as director of Rwanda’s Ministry of Defense to direct Hutu soldiers to kill Tutsis and moderate Hutus thus finding him guilty of crimes against humanity.
See the 2004 historical drama film “Hotel Rwanda” starring Don Cheadle as Paul Rusesabagina the heroic hotel manager who saved more than 1,200 lives during the conflict.

This verdict has even more significance for the people of the United States in light of the recent disclosures made by Vice President Cheney and President Bush in their recent television exit interviews.

The system identifies these emotions, relays the information to a security screener in real time thus protecting you from would-be airline criminals. (more…)
