    Published on Mar 6, 2013 - Comments on continuing efforts to restrict the 2nd Amendment, focusing on the Senate Judiciary Hearing, SH-216, February 27, 2013. During that hearing, chaired by anti-gun proponent Diane Feinstein, some of my ballistic test footage was shown by Dr. William Begg. I needed to post a response to his testimony, and highlight that the true roots of gun violence are being ignored. Dr. Begg called for "real gun research". My point is that the research is already there, just disregarded by those with the authority to develop a relevant plan that creates objective solutions to...

    War On Terror: Upstaging Osama Bin Laden as the most dangerous man in the world may be an American recruiter for al-Qaida: Anwar Awlaki. So why's he talking to Al-Jazeera instead of interrogators? The radical U.S.-born cleric Anwar Awlaki told the Arab TV network that he supported the failed Christmas Day airliner attack because "the American people have participated in all the crimes of their government." The turncoat added: "Some 300 Americans are nothing compared to the thousands of Muslims they have killed." Awlaki also advised the Fort Hood terrorist, whom he called "a hero." The two exchanged some 20...

    OPINION EUROPE APRIL 14, 2010, 5:00 P.M. ET "Amnesty International and Jihad Why is a human rights group working with a Taliban supporter?" SNIPPET: "Amnesty International defines itself as "a worldwide movement of people who campaign for internationally recognized human rights for all." So why is the organization working hand-in-glove with one of the Taliban's most notorious defenders? That's a question serious human-rights campaigners are asking themselves in light of Amnesty's curious collaboration with Moazzam Begg. Mr. Begg is a British citizen and former Guantanamo detainee who, following his release in 2005, wrote a memoir and became director of a...

    The Detroit bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab was linked to a Muslim extremist under surveillance by MI5 while he was living in Britain, it has emerged.

It is feared he had been involved with other extremists while he was a student at University College, London between 2005 and 2008. It has also emerged that the bomber wrote of his desire for Muslims to “rule the whole world” by carrying out a “great jihad” in internet postings four years...

Human rights activist Begg was thrown into the camp on Cuba in 2003 after the CIA held him...

The Bush administration, which has been urging other nations to accept Guantanamo prisoners amid international pressure to close the military jail,...
