    The horror of the sharia and Islamic culture is monstrous enough, but this media cover-up is truly horrible. It's bad enough that mindless followers of a religious culture engage in these atrocious mandates (it's their religion), but for non-believers (with the influence of a big media voice) to cover up for this brutal ideology is pure evil. These reporters are not believers; what's the excuse for their depraved inhumanity? The writer of this Puff Ho piece is one Sara Nelson, who is based in the UK. And if Nelson is not a devout Muslim (who would sanction such savagery) than...

    President Obama claims Libyan security forces fought beside Americans against attackers on Tuesday, but a Libyan official says they gave up consulate personnel to the Islamists who murdered them. Libya's Deputy Interior Minister Wanis al-Sharif says the consulate's security forces moved Ambassador Christopher Stevens and other personnel to a second, safer building once the attacks began. But, he continues, the security forces told the attackers which building Stevens was hiding in, effectively handing him over.

    Rape victim kills attacker. Threat to also go after daughter, 6, spurs bloody struggle: He came to her house wearing a ski mask and carrying a shotgun. He beat the woman, police say, and raped her. But when the woman's attacker — an old high school friend she had spurned — threatened to rape her 6-year-old daughter, the woman went for a butcher knife. That prompted a violent back-and-forth struggle. She stabbed him. He stabbed her. They fought for perhaps as long as 20 minutes, rolling around on the kitchen floor of the woman's Cherokee County home. When it was...
