    NYPD officers, while knowing no crime had been committed, "put the fear of God" into a man who voiced his opposition to the Cordoba House mosque being built at Ground Zero by telephoning Community Board 1 members. DNAinfo has the story: "The guy used four-letter words and said I should die a horrible death,” the board member said. “He just launched into an attack, screaming at me.” The board member called the police, and they tracked down the harassing caller, who had used a cell phone with a 347 area code. Since the caller had said, “You should die,” not,...

    How dangerous does a group have to be to get included on the State Department's Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO) list? In the wake of the Times Square attack, the omission of the Pakistani Taliban from the FTO list revealed a gap in understanding of the threat posed by a violent Islamist network that consists of al-Qaeda franchises and affiliates. But there are other cases where terrorist groups that pose a clear threat to American interests have been omitted from the list. For example, according to a recent report, the State Department will not include the Islamic Emirate of the Caucasus...

    Two reviews outlining the Obama administration’s defense and security strategy have avoided any mention of anti-Muslim labels, reported the Washington Times on Friday, February 12. "(President Barack Obama) had made it clear as we are looking at counterterrorism that our principal focus is al Qaeda and global violent extremism,” David Heyman, Homeland Security Assistant Secretary for Policy, said. “And that is the terminology and language that has been articulated." A 108-page review by the Homeland Security Department has dropped any reference to words such as “Islamists” and “Islamic”. Instead, the document used the terms of “Al-Qaeda”, “terrorist”, “extremist” and “violent...

    On February 2nd, NBC correspondent Pete Williams announced Breaking News during the 5 PM ET edition of Hardball: the Christmas Day Bomber, Umar Abdul Mutallab, was giving fresh, actionable information to the FBI which the United States is in turn "aggressively chasing down." Less than an hour later, this NewsBuster [AKA FReeper governsleast] blogged on the matter, wondering whether by leaking the news, "the Obama administration compromised national security," in an attempt to deflect the criticism it had been receiving for mirandizing Mutallab rather than treating him like the enemy combatant he is. On today's Fox News Watch, panelist Jim...

    There is a saying in police work and in military service that certain very noxious, offensive substances always roll downhill. That is to say, foul-ups instigated by bad policy will always be blamed on the lowest possible links in the chain of command. Such is the case now in Afghanistan. Diana West writes extensively about U.S. Army General Stanley McChrystal’s (pictured above with CIC Obama) “hearts and minds” Afghanistan counter-insurgency campaign: Sacrificing American lives by denying artillery and air support to our ground troops pinned down under heavy enemy fire is acceptable, because artillery and bombs may cause collateral damage...

    National Review ^ | 2-5-2010 | Andrew C. McCarthy - Commentary
    Andrew C. McCarthy February 5, 2010 Holder on Holder AG is unconvincing about ‘his’ decisions on Christmas bomber.  Attorney General Eric Holder has responded to criticism of the Obama administration’s handling of the Christmas bomber, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, with an “all’s well that ends well” letter to Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell. Holder’s missive vigorously defends what he says was his decision to treat Abdulmutallab as a criminal defendant, to impose peacetime law-enforcement protocols on his interrogation, and to charge him in civilian court. He argues that the use of the criminal-justice system has been vindicated because the terrorist is...

    When it comes to trying terrorists on American soil since 9/11, let's all work from the same set of facts. This morning we've heard three people in the Sunday shows talking about the "hundreds" of terrorists that we have tried in US courts and hold in US prisons - as if KSM was just some regular Joe terrorist. Some facts: First, the only civilian trial of a 9/11 terrorist was Moussaoui who was arrested before 9/11 had even happened and before the President had authorized detaining terrorists as enemy combatants. Second, Moussaoui had his trial while the entire military commission...

    he real scandal surrounding the failed Christmas Day airline bombing was not the fact that a terrorist got on a plane -- that can happen to any administration, as it surely did to the Bush administration -- but what happened afterward when Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab was captured and came under the full control of the U.S. government. After 50 minutes of questioning him, the Obama administration chose, reflexively and mindlessly, to give the chatty terrorist the right to remain silent. Which he immediately did, undoubtedly denying us crucial information about al-Qaeda in Yemen, which had trained, armed and dispatched him....

    A South Jersey woman got the scare of her life when she tried to report suspicious activity on board a plane Philadelphia International Airport. The woman shared details of her terrifying ordeal only with Fox 29 News on Wednesday. Now, she's wondering if it was some kind of sick joke or a test run for a terrorist. Fox 29's Dave Schratwieser reported that 12 days after her red-eye flight from Los Angeles, the US Airways passenger is still upset over an incident on her flight, the reaction to it by the flight crew, and the lack of reaction from authorities....

    Documents produced by the Department of Homeland Security indicate that in fiscal 2010 the department is planning to catch only 26 percent of travelers committing major criminal violations while seeking to enter the United States through international airports. DHS documents also indicate that the department believes it will fail to screen against law enforcement databases 15 percent of travelers entering the United States in 2010 through all official ports of entry. In fiscal 2008, according to DHS, the department caught only 25 percent of those committing “major violations” while entering the U.S. on international flights. It also planned to catch...

    The Obama administration on Sunday acknowledged that U.S. intelligence agencies missed some red flags that could have helped unravel the plot to bomb a U.S. airliner on Christmas Day, but said there had been no single "smoking gun" indicating that the attack was coming. John Brennan, the White House's top counterterrorism official, used a round of appearances on the Sunday morning talk shows to defend the administration's handling of the attempted attack. A 23-year-old Nigerian, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, had allegedly tried to set off explosives that he had smuggled underneath his clothing onto a Northwest Airlines flight from Amsterdam to...

    Shortly before Thanksgiving, a concerned Nigerian banker warned the local U.S. Embassy about his missing son's ties to Yemeni radicals and a possible terrorist threat. It wasn't until Christmas that Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab resurfaced - in seat 19A of a Detroit-bound airliner, his underwear loaded with enough explosives to kill all 289 people aboard. The 35 days between were rife with missed clues, missteps and miscommunication as authorities - in a 9/11 repeat - failed to connect the terrorist dots surrounding the Al Qaeda-trained bomber. .."Somebody screwed up big time," said Sen. Kit Bond of Missouri, the top Republican on...

    President Clinton and his Attorney General Janet Reno treated the 1993 WTC bombing as a mere criminal matter, not the terrorist attack it in fact was. Is President Obama slipping back into that same, dangerous, 9-10 mindset? Something the president said during the course of his 60 Minutes interview yesterday raises a red flag on the subject. Chris Matthews played a number of clips on this evening’s Hardball, including this one of PBO taking issue with Dick Cheney’s approach to the war on terror. BARACK OBAMA: I mean, the fact of the matter is, after all these years, how many...
