  • New York Times Scrubs Story on Muslims Celebrating 9/11 (VANITY)i

    Doing research on this topic, I found about a story entitled "In Germany, Muslims grow apart" by Peter Schneider; New York Times; December 4, 2005. It apparently contained the following text: But tolerance of Muslim immigrants began to change in the aftermath of Sept. 11, 2001. Parallel to the declarations of "unconditional solidarity" with Americans by the German majority, rallies of another sort were taking place in Neukölln and Kreuzberg. Bottle rockets were set off from building courtyards, a poor man's fireworks: two rockets here, three rockets there. Altogether, hundreds of rockets were shooting skyward in celebration, just as most...
  • Bigger than Watergate: Proof that the President is Lying about Benghazi? (Blackfive)

    <p>The security officer had a laser on the target that was firing and repeatedly requested back-up support from a Specter gunship, which is commonly used by U.S. Special Operations forces to provide support to Special Operations teams on the ground involved in intense firefights. The fighting at the CIA annex went on for more than four hours — enough time for any planes based in Sigonella Air base, just 480 miles away, to arrive. Fox News has also learned that two separate Tier One Special operations forces were told to wait, among them Delta Force operators.</p>

    Just like everybody else, the news that Navy SEALs had infiltrated Pakistan and shot Usama bin Laden in the face really brightened my evening. I decided to celebrate with a Patel Brothers cigar and two fingers of Jack Daniels. Of course my heart was especially bursting with pride at the news that my brothers on the East Coast got the call and executed their mission flawlessly despite crashing a helointo the compound. If you have to be in a helo crash, you are far better off being in one piloted by a Nightstalker of the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment...

    Big Peace ^ | 7-4-10 | Andrew Breitbard
    A little less than a year after announcing it, in front of Vice President Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld and many other American foreign policy elites at Frank Gaffney’s “Keeper of the Flame” Award Dinner in October 2009, we are finally launching Big Peace. It took nine months because this site has to be done right, and with Hoover Institution Research Fellow and bestselling author Peter Schweizer, we found the perfect editor. Because I am not a foreign policy or military expert, I needed to create a core editorial unit that represented the highest-end understanding of policy while at the same...

    There is little better in this world than doing some good, and especially doing some good for the troops with a good group of people. Cooking with the Wounded is now a formal program, and Phase II kicked off in high style thanks to Katy and Molly of the Yellow Bowl Bakery, who have founded their own group Bakers without Borders to do for the troops, and to Concrete Bob who brought together the 173rd ABN, the Warrior Legacy Foundation, DC Free Republic, and the grilling regulars to do quite a cookout. The result was pure Southern hospitality: grazing from...

    COL (ret) Joel Leson fowards this email about a visit to the US Military Academy (West Point): I visited West Point today for a series of business meetings, mostly with faculty and some with Cadets. Not to go into too much boring detail, but the purpose was to get some feedback for some work my boss and colleagues and I are doing that will (we think and hope) shake up the military's thinking in a positive way. It was of course the eighth anniversary of 9/11, which was on my mind as I listened to the NY radio stations' remembrance...

    Ted Kennedy - CBS Needs to do some Fact Checking Posted By BlackfiveSenator Ted Kennedy was a veteran of the US Army.  After getting kicked out of Harvard for cheating, he was drafted.  After serving his three years, he went back to Harvard and you probably know the rest of the story.   CBS News interviewed staffers and family and did not investigate this claim [emphasis mine]. And, even when he was out-voted, Kennedy was willing to take unpopular stands. He was one of the first politicians to oppose the 2003 American invasion of Iraq. But Kennedy supported the soldiers...

    Last night, Freedom Radio talked with Blackfive's James "Uncle Jimbo" Hanson about victory in this long war, what it will take to achieve it in Afghanistan, and why President Obama is uncomfortable with talking about it. Eight years into this fight, our nation's defense seems but a talking-point towards the "greater" victory in the next election cycle: The discussion continued. Uncle Jimbo expanded upon the appropriateness of members of our military using their standing to interject themselves into the controversy about Obama's birth certificate, the major contribution military blogs have made to the reporting on Iraq and the War on...

    Blackfive, a popular conservative blog, interviewed a person with, he and Blackfive say, knowledge about Barack Obama’s professional and possibly private relationship with one of his (former) staffers, most likely named Vera Baker, according to the source. You can listen to the interview below, in which the source explains how he found out about it. Fascinating is that the source, Wolf, says that the dirt on this story was dug up by Hillary Clinton’s campaign. They planned to put the story out there before the Democratic Convention, but failed to find enough hard evidence. ‘Wolf’ says that they have found...

    RICHMOND, Va. - From the front lines of Iraq and Afghanistan to here at home, soldiers blogging about military life are under the watchful eye of some of their own. A Virginia-based operation, the Army Web Risk Assessment Cell, monitors official and unofficial blogs and other Web sites for anything that may compromise security. The team scans for official documents, personal contact information and pictures of weapons or entrances to camps. In some cases, that information can be detrimental, said Lt. Col. Stephen Warnock, team leader and battalion commander of a Manassas-based Virginia National Guard unit working on the operation....

It has been about three hours since I found out that CNN became a terrorist press agency, and it took that long to chill enough to type. I keep clenching all my muscles and imagining my hand, Ted Turner's scrawny neck, a wall, and a torrent of verbal abuse flowing from my cakehole to his entire existence, punctuated by occasional slams of him into said wall.

    US Army Watching BlogsPosted By Blackfive Note: One reason that I wanted "The Blog of War" published was to preserve several excellent military blogger entries from blogs that were either shut down by the military or the author decided to shut down in order to avoid trouble with the military (The Questing Cat, Armor Geddon, Training For Eternity, This Is Your War, A Day in Iraq, etc.).  This topic is a difficult one for me to navigate.  I hope this post effectively describes what I think about monitoring milblogs. I just spoke to an *ackk!!!* AP reporter who talked with...

    Milblogger BlackFive has just released a new book that contains dispatches from our outstanding men and women of the US military who are serving in Iraq and Afghanistan.

In it you will meet: * The Warriors. Snipers, tankers, grunts. Readers who have never heard a shot fired in anger will come closer to...

    It's almost a full time job for our crack editorial team here at Blackfive just to report on each instance of Rep. Murtha making a WTF? statement. Froggy got him from Meet the Press this morning proving he is either astonishingly stupid regarding the capabilities of our military or just willing to say anything. He got Matty O' bangin' on him here, and the king of running away gets a little Uncle J love for all his foolishness. Video Here: Click Here For the YouTube Video

I want to start with tonight, and the president's...what do you expect the president to say tonight? Black5: Well, you know, I'd expect a couple of things. Of course, he's going to focus on the troops. I've...
