    No more pretending not to know what it is. When you step back and think about it, it’s really an absurd proposition that we ask presidential candidates to publicly tell us their strategies - in exhaustive detail - for attacking and destroying an enemy that you know fully well is listening in. If a candidate is vague, the media complain that he was “short on specifics.” But if he’s really specific, the media attack the specifics while the enemy takes copious notes and sends flowers in thanks for the heads up. It’s a wonder any of us are still alive...

    NYC Settles Lawsuits Over Muslim Surveillance by Police By tom hays, associated press NEW YORK -- Jan 7, 2016 The New York Police Department will strengthen safeguards against illegal surveillance of Muslims in investigations of terror threats and install a civilian representative on an advisory committee that reviews the probes under the terms of a settlement of two high-profile civil rights lawsuits, lawyers said Thursday. The announcement of a deal following months of negotiations formally ended litigation over accusations that the nation's largest police department cast a shadow over Muslim communities with a covert campaign of religious profiling and illegal...

    Canadian lawmakers passed a new anti-terror law on Wednesday dramatically expanding the powers and reach of Canada’s spy agency, allowing it to operate overseas for the first time. The move came in response to the first terror attacks on Canadian soil last October, when a gunman killed a ceremonial guard and stormed parliament, and a soldier was run over in rural Quebec. A large number of critics -- including celebrated author Margaret Atwood -- have vehemently decried bill C-51 as an unprecedented assault on civil rights, saying it lacks oversight and is overly broad. It criminalizes the promotion of terrorism,...

    Donetsk (Ukraine) (AFP) - The once-bustling leafy boulevards of central Donetsk are now deserted but one place where there is almost certain to be a crowd is the rebel-held city's ornate Stalin-era railway station. As the boom of mortar fire rocks the mining hub of one million daily, ever more residents are packing up and fleeing a tightening government blockade. "They are bombing -- that's why we are getting far away from here," said Lyubov, a grey-eyed woman with her hair in a bun, who fled her home in a nearby town. "We left everything and ran away," she said,...

    WARSAW — President Obama met on Wednesday for the first time with the newly elected president of Ukraine and pledged American support for efforts to stabilize a country torn by corruption, economic turmoil and a violent pro-Russian insurgency broadly believed to be fomented by Moscow. Mr. Obama used the meeting to announce that the United States would increase nonlethal aid to Ukraine with $5 million worth of night-vision goggles, body armor and communications equipment sought by its security forces. He praised President-elect Petro O. Poroshenko, saying that Mr. Poroshenko “understands the aspirations and hopes of the Ukrainian people” and represents...

    Translated from Russian by William Risch, Georgia College: "Important! Insider intelligence information from the town of Sloviansk: The self-proclaimed mayor of Sloviansk, Viacheslav Ponomariov, gave an order to his armed militant forces to take over kindergartens. As of 1 p.m., around 5-6 armed men each are in kindergartens and schools. The mayor gave an order to his terrorists to use Putin’s tactic – shield themselves with women and children. Parents who came early to take their children out of kindergartens ran into problems not getting their children back for various reasons, and they confirm stories that they are supposed to...

    Reuters - A group of armed men shot dead a tribal leader and his son on Monday in Egypt's Sinai Peninsula on the border with Israel, a security source said, as violence escalated on the sixth day of a military crackdown on militants in the area. "Tribal leader Khalaf Al-Menahy and his son were shot dead by militants on their way back from a conference organized by tribal leaders to denounce militancy," said the security source in Sinai. The attack occurred during a security sweep that began on Wednesday after the killing of 16 Egyptian border guards last week, which...

    One cable from the WikiLeaks trove raises a disturbing possibility: the Obama administration’s obsession with Israeli settlements could end up undermining America’s own war on terror. Shortly before Israel announced a 10-month freeze on settlement construction last year, Germany urged Washington to threaten that absent such a moratorium, the U.S. would refuse to block a UN Security Council vote on the Goldstone Report, which accused Israel of war crimes in Gaza. U.S. officials correctly responded that this would be “counterproductive” but agreed to tell Israel “that their policy on settlements was making it difficult for their friends to hold the...

    <p>As opposed to the increasingly absurd steps being taken to identify and keep weapons off commercial aircraft, it would be advisable and practical to identify and empower volunteer counter-terrorists among the passengers, initially at least on domestic flights or on international flights by domestic carriers. This could even extend to arming those passengers on the aircraft.</p>

    WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama declared Thursday "the buck stops with me" for the nation's security and suggested he would not fire anyone for the Christmas attack on a Detroit-bound airliner... Obama didn't tell intelligence officials to change what they're doing. Instead, he told them to just do it better, and faster. He left it to them to figure out how. ... While Obama promised improved security, his solutions were laced with bureaucratic reshuffling. ... "There is, of course, no foolproof solution," he said. "We have to stay one step ahead of a nimble adversary."

    WASHINGTON - The top official in charge of analyzing terror threats did not cut short his ski vacation after the underwear bomber nearly blew up an airliner on Christmas Day, the Daily News has learned. Michael Leiter, director of the National Counterterrorism Center since 2007, decided not to return to his agency's "bat cave" nerve center in McLean, Va., until several days after Christmas, two U.S. officials said. "People have been grumbling that he didn't let a little terrorism interrupt his vacation," said one of the sources.

    DENVER – A store clerk's curiosity about why Najibullah Zazi was buying large quantities of beauty supply products indicated that something about the transaction wasn't quite right — and it's an example of the kind of citizen vigilance that can combat terror, a police commander said Saturday. Los Angeles police Cmdr. Joan McNamara cited this summer's incident as police chiefs meeting in Denver adopted a model for a nationwide community watch program that teaches people what behavior is truly suspicious and encourages them to report it to police. Federal authorities allege Zazi, 24, tried to make a homemade explosive using...

    Police have used anti-terrorism powers to stop and search almost 180,000 suspects, it emerged yesterday. Yet only 255 of the individuals they targeted were subsequently detained for terrorist- related offences. The figures suggest that police may be misusing powers granted to them under section 44 of the Terrorism Act 2000 supposedly for use only in extreme circumstances The Home Office statistics, which were released to the Daily Mail under Freedom of Information laws, show a ten-fold use in the power since its introduction. In 2000-01, just 3,583 people were stopped under Section 44. Of these, only one was arrested for...
