This early in the season, a presidential primary debate is essentially about winning the battle of the buzz. On a crowded stage, the objective is to separate oneself in a way that captures media attention and drives post-debate conversation. The contender who best accomplished that in Monday’s CNN New Hampshire debate is Michele Bachmann, the Minnesota congresswoman with a singular talent for seizing the spotlight. Compared to her six male opponents, Bachmann came across as scrappy and forthright. You may disagree with every word she says, but there’s no question the woman has the courage of her convictions.

Bachmann’s fluency as a presidential debater complicates the fortunes of her rivals. Her ideological purity makes Mitt Romney look all the more wishy-washy. Her vivacity heightens the mind-numbing dullness of fellow Minnesotan Tim Pawlenty. Her can-do gumption reduces Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul to the status of cranky old men. Her social conservatism puts Rick Santorum to shame — Bachmann can trump Santorum’s seven children with a whopping 23 foster children of her own. Only Herman Cain is as plainspoken and conversational, but politically he appears not ready for prime time-for God’s sake, the man mispronounced “Chile.”

Bachmann has the performance mechanics down pat. She knows how to deliver her message in sound bites, and she rarely shrinks from addressing the question on the table. Unlike some of the other stuffed shirts on the stage, she seems like a real person. This is a political skill that cannot be underestimated.

Bachmann’s one glaringly weak moment of the debate was an ambiguous, contradictory response on gay marriage. Her position on the matter is muddled; about the only thing that’s certain is that she stands outside the mainstream of popular opinion, on this as on most other social issues. The congresswoman’s response on gay marriage represented a rare misstep, and it highlights the vulnerability she will face as a national candidate forced to step outside her right-wing comfort zone.

If Bachmann’s performance now lifts her into the varsity ranks of Republican presidential contenders, Gingrich and Santorum just got pushed further to the sidelines. You have to wonder how many more debates they will get invited to, or what right-minded person would give either of them a dime. As for the others, Ron Paul will always be Ron Paul, which is to say more contrarian than viable candidate. Pawlenty performed adequately, but he needed to gain serious traction in this debate, and clearly that did not happen. Romney managed to emerge relatively unscathed, despite predictions from the pundits that he would serve as the debate’s punching bag. That said, he’s still not very likeable.

To the chagrin of her less media-savvy opponents, feisty Michele Bachmann lives to fight another day. Long after most of these other candidates have vanished from the race, it appears likely she’ll still be standing.

28 February 2011 Last updated at 12:35 ET

A British Airways computer expert who plotted to blow up a plane has been found guilty of terror charges.

Rajib Karim, 31, from Newcastle, used his job to access information for radical cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, Woolwich Crown Court heard.

He denied four charges, including sharing information of use to hate groups.

But after four days of deliberations, the jury found him guilty of all four charges.

Karim was committed to an “extreme jihadist cause” and determined to become a martyr, jurors were told.

The Bangladeshi national, who moved with his wife and son to Newcastle in 2006, had already admitted being involved in the production of a terrorist group’s video.

Joined gymKarim, a privately-educated IT expert from Dhaka, became a supporter of the extremist organisation Jammat-ul Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB) after being influenced by his younger brother Tehzeeb, the court heard.

He was described as a “mild-mannered, well-educated and respectful” man who hid his hatred for Western ways from colleagues by joining a gym, playing football and never airing extreme views.

Karim’s deep determination to plan terror attacks whatever the cost was frightening”

End Quote Colin Gibbs Crown Prosecution Service

But at the same time he was using his access to the airline’s offices in Newcastle and at Heathrow to spread confidential information.

After gaining a post-graduate job at BA in 2007, Karim held secret meetings with fellow Islamic extremists at Heathrow and, in 2009, began communicating with al-Awlaki from his home in Brunton Lane.

After the verdict, Home Secretary Theresa May said: “The fact that Karim has been found guilty of such a heinous plot shows why we will never be complacent.

“I want to thank the police and the security service for their hard work in this complex case.

“We know that we face a serious threat from terrorism and national security remains this government’s top priority.”

Colin Gibbs, counter terrorism lawyer for the Crown Prosecution Service, added: “The most chilling element of this case is probably the fact that Karim tried to enrol as cabin crew and anyone can imagine how horrific the consequences of this could have been, had he succeeded.

“Karim’s deep determination to plan terror attacks whatever the cost was frightening.

‘Coded messages'”He found a position as a software engineer, which the prosecution said he considered the perfect job, giving an opportunity sooner or later to fulfil his deadly objective.”

Deputy assistant commissioner of the Metropolitan Police, Stuart Osborne, added: “Although Rajib Karim went to great lengths to disguise his activities, experts from the Metropolitan Police Service Counter Terrorism Command spent nine months decrypting 300 coded messages found on his computer hard drive.

“It was the most sophisticated decryption task of its kind ever undertaken by the Met’s Counter Terrorism Command.

“This painstaking work gave detectives access to a body of material, which exposed Rajib Karim’s terrorist activities and led to today’s conviction.”

Karim is due to be sentenced on 18 March.

August 23, 2010
An armed policeman who lost his job last year took a tourist bus hostage on Monday, setting off a daylong standoff that ended after police commandos stormed the bus.

At least 4 of the 15 hostages were killed, and one was critically wounded, a spokesman for the President Benigno S. Aquino III said Monday night. Six others were shown on television crawling out of the bus after police assault teams moved in.

A man shown slumped and apparently lifeless by the main door of the bus was identified on television reports as the gunman, but the authorities did not immediately confirm his fate.

Live video from the scene showed police commandos, their rifles drawn, surrounding the bus, slamming windows with sledgehammers and opening an emergency exit as emergency vehicles converged in the rain. Gunshots were heard as they swarmed the bus.

A short time earlier, the driver of the bus managed to escape after cutting himself loose from handcuffs the hostage-taker had put on. The driver jumped through a window, ran from the bus and screamed, “Everybody is dead!” to a group of journalists who had clustered at the scene.

The police began the assault moments after the driver escaped.

At least nine hostages had been released earlier, including three children and a diabetic. Three of the freed were Filipinos. According to the authorities, there were 15 other people inside before the police began their assault.

The drama began at 10 a.m. when a former police officer identified as Rolando Mendoza, 55, boarded a Hong Thai Travel tour bus and took the passengers hostage.

Rodolfo Magtibay, the chief of the Manila Police District, told reporters on the scene that the Mr. Mendoza had demanded the return of his job and benefits. Authorities said that Mr. Mendoza had been dismissed in 2009 after accusations he had extorted money from a hotel chef accused of using drugs.

The bus sat parked with its curtains drawn at the Quirino Grandstand near the Manila Bay, a public plaza where presidents usually take their oaths of office. For hours, live broadcasts indicated no movement inside the bus, except when three shots were fired through the windshield.

The presence of cameras appeared to play a role in how the standoff unfolded.

The situation seemed to escalate after the gunman’s brother, Gregorio Mendoza, who is also a police officer, complained to reporters gathered near the scene that the police had wanted to implicate him in the hostage-taking. He also accused the police of trying to kill him. In front of the cameras, Officer Mendoza was picked up the by the police and shoved into a police car, his relatives wailing behind him.

Earlier, the hostage-taker had warned the authorities not to harm his family.

There were shots heard soon after the gunman’s brother was taken into custody, raising the possibility that those on the bus were watching the crisis play out on television monitors inside.

Throughout the day, the gunman wrote his demands on cardboard, which he would then paste on the windshield of the bus. One of the messages read, “Big mistake to correct a big wrong decision.”

Late in the afternoon, he posted a message saying, “Media now,” apparently telling journalists to come to him. But the police prevented reporters from even getting near the bus.
