    WND ^ | 10/11/2012 | Maj. Gen. Paul Vallely
    The decision to raid Osama bin Laden’s compound in Pakistan and kill him was made without President Obama – and actually was kept from him until after the helicopters already were in Pakistani airspace – according to a new report from a retired major general who cites a senior intelligence source. The raid was handled by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Director of Central Intelligence Leon Panetta and others in this way because Obama had vetoed multiple earlier opportunities to attack the man behind the 9/11 terror attacks, the report said.

    Vatican II at 50By Kenneth J. Wolfe Fifty years ago today the Second Vatican Council began with a clear indication of who had gained control of the Catholic Church’s direction. From the Latin Mass to meatless Fridays to the concept of salvation, numerous components of the faith were set to be reformed, led mostly by clerical academics who had served on preparatory commissions. So powerful were they that Cardinal Alfredo Ottaviani, a conservative who headed what is now the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (which the future Pope Benedict XVI would later lead), was vocally heckled and silenced...

    Study of snake venom in mice reveals potential new strategy for relieving agony A snakebite may bring on a world of hurt, but a substance found in black mamba venom could actually relieve pain. The finding reveals a new possible approach for pain treatment, researchers report online October 3 in Nature. The black mamba, Dendroaspis polylepis polylepis, is one of the most lethal snakes on Earth. But a team of researchers in France found that compounds in the snake’s venom have the same pain-banishing effect on mice that morphine does. The compounds, called mambalgins, appear to work by blocking certain...

    Destined to go down in the annals of political farces, tonight’s debate proved one thing; just how increasingly desperate, juvenile, and out of touch Democrats really are as the election nears. Debates are supposed to be informative, professional forums that invoke a constructive discussion of the most pressing issues. Yet, it’s obvious Team Obama – which includes the home town moderator - realized they could not beat Ryan on the issues, so they decided to turn a democratic staple for the voting masses into a prime time circus replete with century-old, stale stereotypes and Jersey Shore sensationalism. If anyone actually...

    Mitt Romney would likely have raised eyebrows, if not protest, had he said during the Republican primaries that "no legislation with regards to abortion" would be part of his agenda, that federal regulation is "essential'' or that young illegal immigrants should be able to keep work permits granted by President Barack Obama. GOP nominee Mitt Romney speaks Thursday with the Rev. Billy Graham, center, and his son, Franklin, at the Grahams' cabin in Montreat, N.C. . But conservative leaders and activists, some of whom worried about the firmness of Mr. Romney's commitment to their causes earlier this year, say they...

    The first debate was a game changer. The president will need to be both aggressive and presidential in the second. Before the first presidential debate, this column repeatedly pointed out that Mitt Romney needed something to happen—an event or development that would change the trajectory of this race—or he would lose. As Jay Leno remarked, the only people who thought President Obama won the debate were the NFL replacement referees. Unquestionably, the Denver debate changed the course of the race enormously. For Romney, it was necessary, but we will have to see if it is sufficient to put him over...

    Kingmakers in the Republican Party are closing ranks behind Mitt Romney, saying they have no concerns about the GOP nominee’s recent push for independent voters. Their remarks contrast with the right’s occasional knee-jerk reactions earlier this year when Romney was struggling to gain traction against President Obama. In the last week, Romney has made statements suggesting a shift on Wall Street regulatory reform, immigration and healthcare. But right-wing leaders who throughout the GOP primary held his feet to the fire on those issues have united behind their nominee with less than a month until Election Day. They deny that he’s...

    The U.S. military-service academies—at West Point (Army), Annapolis (Navy), Colorado Springs (Air Force), and New London (Coast Guard)—are at the center of several debates, both military and civilian. The military is downsizing, and the federal budget is under scrutiny: Do the academies deserve to continue? They're educational institutions, but do they actually educate, and furthermore, do they produce "leaders" as they claim to? And are they worth the $400,000 or so per graduate (depending on the academy) they cost taxpayers? After all, we already have a federal program that produces officers—an average of twice as many as those who go...
