A "senior Obama administration official" is breaking ranks to call out his boss in Time magazine about Libya.In an article published online Sunday night, Time writer Massimo Calabresi buries the lede by holding the bombshell quotes until the fourth paragraph, preferring to write about himself the first three.The quotes have the official all but calling Obama a liar over his stated reasons for going to war in Libya. The article also has the official saying Obama is knowingly taking a "huge gamble" because al Qaeda has cells in Libya that could benefit from the the...

    Bangladesh prime minister says Clinton personally pressured her to help foundation donorby Sara A. Carter - May 11, 2017 While secretary of state, Hillary Clinton made a personal call to pressure Bangladesh’s prime minister to aid a donor to her husband’s charitable foundation despite federal ethics laws that require government officials to recuse themselves from matters that could impact their spouse’s business.The Office of Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina confirmed to Circa that Mrs. Clinton called her office in March 2011 to demand that Dr. Muhammed Yunus, a 2006 Nobel Peace prize winner, be restored to his role as chairman...

    The photo above shows Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff, Donald Trump, and Frank Gaffney at the launch of The United West in Miami, Florida on March 6, 2011. Although he wasn’t mentioned in any of our reports on the event, I remembered that Mr. Trump had attended, and I asked Elisabeth to look for the photo. She couldn’t find the digital original, so the above image was made by scanning a printout of the photo — hence the inferior quality.

    Hillary Clinton’s email scandal gets worse by the day. Already the subject of a criminal FBI investigation, it’s clear that Hillary’s biggest problem isn’t Bernie Sanders… it’s a life-long prison sentence! After fighting the release for months, new emails reveal that Hillary Clinton used her private home server to transmit classified details of exactly where American Ambassador Chris Stevens was before the terrorist attacks in Benghazi, Libya. Because her emails could have been easily intercepted by foreign entities, Hillary Clinton likely handed over details of his location to Islamic terrorist killers. This is horrible… The email was actually first released...

    ROME — Imagine a five-star general, under assault, with no weapons of defense — except faith. Think of an Old Testament prophet living today, describing the evil destroying his community — but few listen. That general or prophet is the fierce and noble leader of the Syriac Catholic Church of Antioch, Patriarch Ignatius Youssef III Younan, age 71, whose Church comprises some 200,000 souls worldwide. snip According to the patriarch, fundamental errors in Syria came from Western politicians insisting that democracy can be exported, when it can’t; from Western media describing an “Arab Spring” style opposition movement and the existence...

    UNITED NATIONS — A former Nicaraguan foreign minister who once called President Ronald Reagan “the butcher of my people” has been appointed to represent Libya at the United Nations after its delegate was denied a visa, the Nicaraguan government said on Wednesday. Nicaragua said the former minister, Miguel D’Escoto Brockmann, 78, an outspoken critic of the United States and a Catholic priest, would replace the Libyan diplomat Ali Abdussalam Treki, who had been unable to obtain a visa to enter the United States. Libya’s ambassador to the United Nations, Abdurrahman Mohamed Shalgam, defected in late February after denouncing Col. Muammar...

    Turkey | An aging but popular exile in the United States, Fethullah Gulen is considered by many behind moves to Islamicize his native land After weeks of demonstrations in 76 cities, police forces in Turkey made one final sweep through Istanbul’s Taksim Square, arresting the remaining protesters and wiping out their tent city. That appeared to be the end of nationwide protests that injured 4,000 and left at least four dead—until a local performing artist arrived on the night of June 17 and peacefully planted himself in the square. With his hands in his pockets, the “standing man” stared solemnly...

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her aides tried to use personal hand-held electronic devices inside areas used to store classified information, according to the just-released State Department inspector general report. The Bureau of Diplomatic Security, the State Department’s security arm, told the inspector general that in March 2009 Mrs. Clinton rejected an offer from security officials to provide her with a secure government smartphone. “DS was informed that Secretary Clinton’s staff had been asking to use BlackBerry devices inside classified areas,” said the report, released late last month. Another portion of the inspector general’s report states that Mrs....

    What if the biggest mystery surrounding Col. Moammar Gadhafi had nothing to do with his long, brutal reign as the world's most eccentric and violent leader turned pariah? And what if a long-lost letter from a Catholic cardinal who knew Gadhafi's true identity was evidence that could have solved the mystery? To many Libyan people, the biggest question mark about Gadhafi does not involve his repressive and dictatorial rule, delusional statements or brazen lies. Behind closed doors, for years, they've wondered if he is Jewish. Last week the issue came out in the open, as NBC's Richard Engel reported from...

    The Benghazi committee has denied accusations of partisanship, even as both parties jockey ahead of Clinton's upcoming appearance before the panel. A partisan feud broke out during Friday's closed-door testimony by a top Hillary Clinton adviser, as Democrats blasted the GOP-led Benghazi panel for summoning the witness in the first place while conservative activists circulated emails they said showed the aide's testimony was relevant. Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), the top Democrat on the panel, slammed the panel for bringing in Huma Abedin, Clinton's former deputy chief of staff at State, for questioning. His comments echoed a Thursday night statement from...

While the Obama administration has promoted the use of "soft power" and diplomacy, the documents suggest the option was not vigorously pursued...

    An email forwarded by Hillary Clinton to a colleague that identified a top CIA informant in Libya could trigger an intelligence investigation and add to concerns that she mishandled classified information, according to intelligence sources. Clinton received an email in March 2011 from her longtime adviser Sidney Blumenthal that identified a covert Libyan source who was reportedly working with the CIA. Blumenthal said his business partner, the late former CIA agent Tyler Drumheller, had given the information to him. Clinton forwarded the email over her personal server to a colleague, according to emails published on Thursday by Rep. Trey Gowdy...

    Hillary Clinton used her private email account to pass along the identity of one of the CIA’s top Libyan intelligence sources, raising new questions about her handling of classified information, according to excerpts from previously undisclosed emails released Thursday by Rep. Trey Gowdy, the Republican chairman of the House Select Committee on Benghazi. On March 18, 2011, Sidney Blumenthal — Clinton’s longtime friend and political adviser — sent the then secretary of state an email to her private account that contained apparently highly sensitive information he had received from Tyler Drumheller, a former top CIA official with whom Blumenthal at...
