Brooks: I Hope Trump Gets Ignored, Because Attacks ‘Help Him’

Screenshot New York Times columnist David Brooks stated that he hopes other Republican candidates “try to ignore” Donald Trump because “attacking him is going to make him look even more exceptional and probably help him, at least in the short-term” on Friday’s “PBS NewsHour.” Brooks said that Trump’s role in the first debate is “the big story, whether he is able to dominate with his own voice, whether everyone, as they’ve been doing off camera, in the last week, just try to get some publicity for themselves by attacking him, whether he becomes the central figure, or whether they try to ignore him. I hope they try to ignore him and just let the thing ride itself out.

Suspicions Rise: Bin Laden Family Plane Crash Took Place in ‘Near Perfect Conditions’

Bin Laden Family Plane Crash Image The plane crash which killed three members of Osama Bin Laden’s family yesterday in Hampshire in the United Kingdom is said to have taken place in “near perfect conditions” – raising suspicions about the incident.

But the Guardian has raised questions over the crash, as the plane was equipped with high-tech gear to guide it in safely, and Blackbushe Airport has Precision Approach Pathway Indicators (Papis). Journalist Jamie Doward wrote that the conditions for landing were “near perfect”. The Guardian reports: The four indicators, which can be seen from more than half a mile away, all flash white if the pilot is coming in too high and red if too low. “It doesn’t make sense to me as an ordinary pilot why something
