  • Camp Bastion Families Want Answers About Afghanistan

    11/14/2012 3:48:06 AM PST · by Kaslin · 16 replies ^ | November 14, 2012 | Michelle Malkin
    While Secretary of State Hillary Clinton boozes it up in Australia and the Pentagon grapples with more floozy eruptions, outraged military families are still waiting for answers about the forgotten 9/14 attack on Camp Bastion. Muckrakers and distraction engineers are having a front-page field day with the so-called "sex scandal." But for surviving relatives and colleagues of heroic Marine Lt. Col. Christopher Raible and Sgt. Bradley Atwell, it's the national security scandal at Afghanistan's Camp Bastion that deserves headline coverage. There's been a virtual blackout of the alarming story in the national press. As I reported last month, the meticulously...

    The use of Russia’s Bastion coastal missile systems in Syria was the first combat use of this system against ground targets. It was aimed at testing the capabilities of the system in real combat conditions, said Konstantin Sivkov, president of the Academy of Geopolitical Problems. Earlier on the day, Russian Defense Minister said Bastion systems had been deployed to Syria. The minister said they had conducted strikes on terrorist targets in Syria. "These complexes are able to destroy both sea and ground targets at a distance of 350 kilometers at sea and almost 450 kilometers over land," Shoigu said at...

    Shortly after the HHS report was released, the leader of the state's health insurance exchange issued a response. "Unfortunately, this is not surprising, given that CT currently has the 4th highest medical costs in the U.S., underscoring how various marketplace variables impact premium rates," said Kevin Counihan, Access Health CT president and chief executive officer. "Additionally, CT has a substantial number of mandated benefits when compared to other states, as well as broad provider network requirements, both of which tend to drive higher premiums. We look forward to being part of the dialogue to address these important issues moving forward...
  • Uncovering the Camp Bastion Cover-Up

    All it takes is one crack for a stone wall to start crumbling. Nine months after the deadly 9/14 raid on Camp Bastion in Afghanistan, the families of two fallen Marines may finally get some answers. Real accountability, of course, is another story. A formal internal investigation into lax security at the base -- a British-run NATO compound that adjoins our Marines' Camp Leatherneck -- is now under way. A few members of Congress are putting pressure on the administration for the truth. And a couple of mainstream reporters are digging deeper. More, please. And faster. Camp Bastion belongs in...

    BOSTON, Massachusetts (AP) -- Leading the world's wealthiest and probably most famous university sounds like the plummiest job in academe -- with a staff, a house, and a half-million dollar salary among the many perks. But running Harvard isn't easy. Neil Rudenstine, school president from 1991 to 2001, was forced to take leave of absence for exhaustion in 1994. His successor, Lawrence Summers, announced Tuesday he would resign June 30 after a tumultuous five years, his ambitious agenda to get Harvard's territorial undergraduate and professional schools on same page done in by faculty revolts and brusque management style. Harvard-watchers inside...

    The mother of a Lompoc soldier killed in Iraq wants her son's name removed from what she believes are anti-war memorials on a Santa Barbara beach and outside President Bush's Texas ranch. Air Force Capt. Derek Argel's remains were buried with four of his comrades at Arlington National Cemetery last week. His mother, Debbie Argel Bastian, says the other memorials are an insult to his memory. "I'm livid about it," Bastian said of the weekly beach display on Santa Barbara's West Beach and the smaller memorial in Texas, where the mother of another dead soldier has made headlines with a...

    Hollywood: Bastion Of 'Hate-Americanism' Posted Nov. 25, 2002 By Ralph de Toledano Media Credit: Ezio Petersen/UPI Lange, right, and Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) rub shoulders at a film premiere in New York City. Jessica Lange, a movie actress of no particular distinction, told the press at a film festival this year in Spain, "I'm ashamed to come from the United States," where it is "poisonous, intolerable for those of us who are not right wing." She thanked festival organizers for "allowing me to get out" of the United States and its horrors for a few days. These remarks caused...
