    Especially a certain regime used to having the president of the United States excuse their evil The key bit starts around 9:00, and what makes it so extraordinary is not so much that Trump condemns terrorism - even Obama was willing to do that at least rhetorically - but because he put so much emphasis on who the victims are, and refused to countenance the usual excuses offered to explain away the motivations of individual terrorists. And Trump laid it out in a surprisingly eloquent manner: The potential of the Middle East itself is held back by terrorism. No way...

    Overview of main theater of combat in the East of Ukraine: in the morning continued the battle for Gorlovka. The militants left the village. Today the Group of terrorists has increased because additional convoy proceeded to Gorlovka engineering terrorists from Debalcevo. No accumulation of groups of fighters in the petrovske, where they pull together the forces of Snow and the Red beam. It means two possible options: either the strike preparation aside, either side of the Lisichansk city Gorlovka. Lisichansk pockets of resistance still remain terrorists and this cannot be ignored, even by the official MEDIA and information on the...

    (Translated by Roman Vlasov) ATO forces continued the active phase of offensive operation. In the night of July 23 the settlements of Kozhevnya and Krasnaya Zorya were liberated from illegal armed groups. Therefore the goal of taking under control the Check Point Marinovka has been fulfilled. Closer to lunch time the Ukrainian Armed forces also took under control Marinovka and Djakovo. So the first corridor which was formed by terrorists at the end of May (Kuybyshevo-Dmitrovka-Snezhnoye) is now completely controlled by Ukrainian armed forces. According to the so far unconfirmed information, the National Guard troops captured settlement Blagodarnoye, therefore blocking...

    With the midterm elections fast approaching, the panic over Iraq seems more intense than ever. That country, the thinking goes, is a hopeless mess, and there could be a precipitous American withdrawal, especially if the Democrats win. But doing so would leave the silent majority of Iraqis hostage to the most vicious extremists, abandoning those Iraqi leaders who have championed liberal democratic values. One of them is Mithal al-Alusi, a 53-year-old Sunni Arab who won a seat in parliament last December after having served as director general of the National Commission on de-Baathification. Mr. al-Alusi ran on a platform of...

    Working from a beige house at the end of a dirt road, Jeff Bardin switches on a laptop, boots up a program that obscures his location, and pecks in a passkey to an Internet forum run by an Iraqi branch of al-Qaida. Soon the screen displays battle flags and AK-47 rifles, plus palm-lined beaches to conjure up a martyr's paradise. "I do believe we are in," says Bardin, a stout, 54-year-old computer security consultant. Barefoot in his bedroom, Bardin pretends to be a 20-something Canadian who wants to train in a militant camp in Pakistan. With a few keystrokes, he...

    FBI Tracking 100 Suspected Islamic Extremists in US Military Dozen Cases Considered 'Serious' (Newser) – The FBI has tracked some 100 people within the US military suspected of being Islamic extremists, with a dozen of the cases considered "serious," reports NPR. These involve individuals who appear to have demonstrated a "strong intent" to attack military targets. The "insider threats" include both active and reserve military members, but also people who have access to military facilities such as contractors or relatives with special ID cards. The information was revealed in a closed-door House-Senate committee hearing late last year, according to three...

    Ten years after the terror attacks, the city is safer, thanks to the NYPD—but the threat remains.On a clear summer day, Lieutenant Isa Abbassi and Officer Jamal Kilkenny are taking in the sights, NYPD-style. Their Agusta A119 helicopter, bearing the NYPD’s distinctive blue and white markings, soars 700 feet above the East River, its single engine purring at top speed. Heading north at 70 miles per hour, the chopper whirls by the Brooklyn and Williamsburg Bridges as Kilkenny points its L-3 Wescam multisensor camera at various tourist destinations: the South Street Seaport, the United Nations’ headquarters, the 59th Street Bridge....

    The U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee is weighing fresh concerns about the sweeping nature of domestic spying using one controversial section of the Patriot Act. This particular part of that law is notable because it has been divisive for years — and because during those years President Obama has quietly moved from being a Senator skeptical of the provisions to being an enthusiastic spy chief whose Administration embraces them. Last Tuesday the committee met to consider the worries of some members, mostly Democrats, who say the Justice Department has drafted a breathtakingly broad interpretation of Section 215 of the Patriot Act....

    Let the People Suffer by Ari Bussel Elected officials seem to be exempt from what we, commoners, have to endure. They have their own health plan, and will not subjugate themselves or their family members to what they force down our throats. They will not be patted down at airports, for they go via security points unchecked. But you and—more often than not—I have to endure long waits at the airports and unpleasant TSA officials who do not think – the extent of their training is to follow procedures. They are not allowed to profile, i.e. common sense is out....

But not everyone thinks shifting patrols is a good idea. Outside the Empire State Building, one of the top terror targets in the city, some New Yorkers were outraged by the shift and had some strong words for Mayor Michael Bloomberg. "He's cutting down? Hmm … why is that a bad thing?" said Francisco Santos of East New York. "Because we might get bombed again? Yeah, definitely consider it a bad thing."" SNIPPET: "The anti-terror...

    WASHINGTON, July 11, 2007 – Coalition and Iraqi forces have killed or captured hundreds of al Qaeda members in Iraq over the past two months, including 26 of the terror network’s “high-value” leaders and a would-be bomber, a Multinational Force Iraq spokesman said. Speaking with reporters in Baghdad this morning and during a conference call with bloggers later today, Army Brig. Gen. Kevin Bergner said combined forces also have shut down an important terrorist information artery, and he described the cumulative results of these operations. Bergner said successes are occurring in spite of ongoing resistance from al Qaeda, proxy groups...

According to sources, he wanted to discuss the progress of legislation to reform the Senate — which sounds innocent enough. But four weeks later, Mr. Dion's allies are starting to wonder whether the Prime Minister had an ulterior motive: Would he somehow use the meeting against them in the future? “I have no doubt,” a senior Liberal said. “They're going to play silly buggers...
