    The American Civil Liberties Union on Monday began representing a man accused of setting off bombs in New York and New Jersey and injuring more than 30 people. After judges in both states denied attempts by public defenders to represent Ahmed Khan Rahami, a lawyer for the organization’s New Jersey chapter entered a notice of appearance in his case in federal court in Newark on Monday. Rahami has been hospitalized since he was caught following a shootout with police in Linden last week. He has not made an initial court appearance. …

    If the Chelsea bomber had packed his second pressure-cooker IED in a less eye-catching bag, two men might not have removed it—and it might have killed dozens at an open-air restaurant. Had the bomber chosen a simple black or solid hue wheeled suitcase, the two men who happened by might not have even noticed it sitting on a dimly lit patch of pavement on the uptown side of West 27th Street. “They might have just walked right on by,” a high-ranking cop said on Monday. But the wheelie bag the bomber left had an eye-catching pattern whose multi colors included...

    ELIZABETH, N.J. – Authorities said they apprehended Ahmad Khan Rahami, the 28-year-old wanted in connection with weekend bombings in Manhattan and Seaside Park, N.J., after a shootout Monday with police officers. The bloody incident capped off a frantic 72-hour period in this region and beyond, marked by the dual bombings, a stabbing spree in Minnesota and then, Sunday night, the discovery of still more explosive devices at a train station here. Even as the widening probe into the bombings continued across this region, authorities sought to reassure residents that the the bombings and additional explosives appeared to be the work...

    Donald Trump says there will be “more and more” bombings like those that occurred in New York and New Jersey over the weekend because the country’s “stupid” leaders have been “weak” on immigration. “It’s a mess, and it’s a shame,” the Republican nominee said in an interview with “Fox & Friends” Monday. “I think this is something that maybe we’ll get — will happen perhaps more and more all over the country because we’ve been weak.

Instead, Obama’s first stop in New York City Sunday night was at the Gramercy Park home of restaurateur Danny Meyer and actress Audrey Meyer to attend a fundraiser for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. Obama talked about the importance of this election — “the most important election of our lifetime” — and discussed why he believes Clinton is failing to run away with it. “[T]his should not be...

However, next January students at Hamilton College, a small liberal arts school in upstate New York, will know Susan Rosenberg,...

    The United Nations said Tuesday that Boko Haram is responsible for an “alarming spike” of suicide bombings in Nigeria that have been carried about by women and children. Girls between the ages of 7 and 17 years have been used for three-quarters of all such attacks in the region since 2014, the U.N. children’s agency reported. There have been 27 suicide bombings in the region over five months, compared to 26 in all of 2014. “Children are not instigating these suicide attacks; they are used intentionally by adults in the most horrific way.

    This morning on FOX News Sunday Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) accused Rep. Peter King of being an Islamophobe for suggesting that federal agents pay particular attention to Muslim radicals. Think Progress posted the video: Think Progress posted the transcript: KING: Listen, the threat is coming from within the Muslim community in these cases. In New York. that’s why Commissioner Kelly has 1,000 police officers out in the community. Unfortunately, he gets smeared by the New York Times and the Associated Press, but the fact is we’ve stopped 16 plots in New York because we know

After all, the last remaining terrorist was captured. Right? Boston police have stated that they believe that the two Boston bombers acted alone. How does that explain extensive training in...

    Watertown police chief Edward Deveau said Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the 19-year-old suspected Boston Marathon bomber who was captured alive on Friday, killed his older brother Tamerlan by driving over him and dragging his body through the street with a carjacked SUV Thursday night. Deveau, in an interview with CNN's Wolf Blitzer on Saturday, said police officers were handcuffing Tamerlan, who had run out of ammunition, when Dzhokhar came at them in a carjacked SUV. Watertown officers were able to get out of the way. The brothers were armed with pipe bombs, firearms, and explosives and had been in a firefight with...

    Boston and the nation have gone through a trauma and a degree of catharsis over the attack in Boston, and now the battle to define how we discuss that incident and the perps is underway. Media progressives openly hoped and predicted the perp would turn out to be a white male who followed Sarah Palin on Twitter, and are now trying to recover from the awful truth that Islam and jihad look like the motives. Yesterday in these pages, J. Robert Smith accurately predicted how the progressives would frame the accused: The Brothers Tsarnaev grew up in an environment of...

    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – There is once again a high terror alert in New York City. Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said Tuesday they are taking no chances that an attack similar to the Boston Marathon bombings could happen here. The city’s anti-terrorism slogan has always been if you see something say something, and people have been responding in droves, keeping the NYPD busy with dozens and dozens of reports of suspicious packages, CBS 2’s Marcia Kramer reported. “We asked the public to be vigilant, particularly as far as packages are concerned, and in doing that and...

    A series of Twitter gloats today raised questions about the possible involvement of Somali terror group Al-Shabaab in the Boston Marathon bombing. No person or group has yet directly taken responsibility for the attack that killed three and wounded 176, 17 of those critically. The FBI issued a be-on-the-lookout for a dark-skinned or black man in dark clothes, perhaps with a foreign accent, who tried to enter a restricted area moments before the first blast. Authorities were also questioning a Saudi national here on a student visa and searched an apartment in Revere, Mass., last night. Terror groups have shown...

    We still don't have all the facts about yesterday's horrific Boston Marathon bombing. At the time this column is being written, it's being reported that 3 people died and more than 100 were injured in the attack. While bombings are not a common occurrence in America, there have been more of them than most people realize. 10) The World Trade Center Bombing (February 26, 1993): A van filled with explosives went off in the parking garage beneath the World Trade Center. Almost unbelievably, although over a thousand people were wounded, only six were killed. It could have been much...
