A costumed figure stands in a doorway at Hampton Court Palace in southwest London in this image caught on closed circuit television and released by the Palace Friday, Dec. 19, 2003. On several occasions in October 2003, guards at the palace were alerted to an open fire door in the 16th century palace. Upon reviewing the CCTV footage, the curious image of a costumed figure suddenly appeared on the screen and closed the doors. The Palace is well known for its alleged supernatural activity.

Arabic television al Jazeera on December 19, 2003 aired an audio tape purportedly from al Qaeda's second in command Ayman al-Zawahri, saying his group was chasing Americans everywhere, including the United States. 'America has been defeated (by) our fighters despite all its military might, its weaponry ... With God's help we are still chasing Americans and their allies everywhere, including their homeland,' said the speaker, believed to be Zawahri who the U.S. says is Osama bin Laden's deputy. The warning came as a U.S. intelligence official said U.S. authorities were studying a terror threat to New York City and were 'very concerned' by the volume of threats to U.S. interests at home and overseas. Al-Zawahri is seen in this undated video still image. (Reuters)





A fan reaches for a foul ball as Chicago Cubs left fielder Moises Alou tries to make a play in Game 6 of the National League Championship Series in Chicago, October 14, 2003. The infamous foul ball bobbled out of play by a Cubs fan has been sold for $106,600 to another Cubs fan who plans to destroy it. Grant DePorter, managing partner in the restaurant founded by and bearing the name of the late Hall of Fame Cubs broadcaster Harry Caray, was the high bidder in an online auction that began December 1 and ended on December 18. While DePorter does not believe in curses, he nonetheless plans to destroy the ball just to end the nightmare. The event will take place Feb 26 after Cubs fans have submitted suggestions for a proper method of execution. Photo by Allen Fredrickson/Reuters

I noticed he still has the vehicle mount, as well as a side mounted forward grip(the army doesn't encourage rambo-style machine gunning, does it?).

Notice his lack of shoulder insignia and the fact that he has a 240G not B. also has the Oregon Aero chin strap. Me guessing 82nd airborne or something along those lines. Nice Elcan, but the problem we had with the elcans that this guy has as well is that it lifts you off the buttstock. No cheek weld.

It's a pintle, it allows the weapon to inteface with the tripod. the handle on the right side of the gun is the carrying handle attached to the barrel, for carrying the weapon and to remove the barrel for changing. GLAD TO SEE THEY FINALLY HAVE A BELT CARRIER FOR THE DAMNED THINGS!!!!!!!!! About time, the Israelis and South Africans only had them 30 years ago......
