    3 Times Obama Administration Was Warned About ISIS Threat Sep 29, 2014 By JONATHAN KARL Did the intelligence community underestimate ISIS or did the president? In his "60 Minutes" interview, President Obama seemed to put the blame on the intelligence community, saying, “I think they underestimated what had been taking place in Syria.” At the White House daily briefing, Press Secretary Josh Earnest cast the net quite a bit wider. “Everybody was surprised to see the rapid advance that ISIL was able to make from Syria across the Iraqi border,” said Earnest. “To be able to take over such large...

    Obama on Faulty Intelligence The President blames the spooks for his own policy failure on ISIS. President Obama rode to the White House in part by assailing George W. Bush for believing faulty intelligence about Saddam Hussein's weapons of mass destruction. So there is no small irony in his claim now that America's spooks missed the rise of the Islamic State. The difference is that U.S. intelligence did warn about the threat from ISIS. Mr. Obama chose not to listen. Asked on CBS's "60 Minutes" Sunday if ISIS's march into Iraq was a "complete surprise," Mr. Obama replied, "Well I...

    Obama Is Rewriting History On ISIL. It Won't Wash By Peter Foster Sept.29, 2014 Given how completely Barack Obama's foreign policy has been upended by the rise of Isil in Syria, it is not surprising that the president should try and gloss over the scale of his own miscalculation when it came to the threat posed by the jihadists – but that doesn't mean he should be allowed to get away with it. This weekend Mr Obama had the cheek to blame his intelligence agencies for the fact that the White House was "caught by surprise" by the sudden rise...

    SEPTEMBER 27, 2014 The Khorosan Group Does Not Exist It’s a fictitious name the Obama administration invented to deceive us. By Andrew C. McCarthy We’re being had. Again. For six years, President Obama has endeavored to will the country into accepting two pillars of his alternative national-security reality. First, he claims to have dealt decisively with the terrorist threat, rendering it a disparate series of ragtag jayvees. Second, he asserts that the threat is unrelated to Islam, which is innately peaceful, moderate, and opposed to the wanton “violent extremists” who purport to act in its name. Now, the president has...

    Europe Balks at Joining Air Campaign Over Syria France and Other Allies Move Toward Action Against Islamic State in Iraq But Draw Line at Syrian Border By STACY MEICHTRY Sept. 24, 2014 PARIS—The U.S.'s aggressive airstrikes in Syria, backed by a modest coalition of Arab partners, have so far failed to muster the support of traditional European allies. The U.K. and other European countries took key steps Wednesday in lining up parliamentary support for airstrikes over territory that the militant group Islamic State has seized in Iraq, and France has already begun an air campaign over that area. But Europe...

    Weeks of U.S. Strikes Fail to Dislodge ISIS in Iraq By DAVID D. KIRKPATRICK and OMAR AL-JAWOSHY SEPT. 22, 2014 BAGHDAD — After six weeks of American airstrikes, the Iraqi government’s forces have scarcely budged the Sunni extremists of the Islamic State from their hold on more than a quarter of the country, in part because many critical Sunni tribes remain on the sidelines. Although the airstrikes appear to have stopped the extremists’ march toward Baghdad, the Islamic State is still dealing humiliating blows to the Iraqi Army. On Monday, the government acknowledged that it had lost control of the...

    September 20, 2014 Michelle Kvetches to Children with Cancer By Jeannie DeAngelis First Lady Michelle Obama figured now was as good a time as any to visit some sick children. Not the ones on breathing tubes suffering from Enterovirus 68, mind you, but non-contagious patients at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee. After admitting that she dislikes “selfies” but agreeing to be part of an “ussie,” and after discussing flying her dogs around on Air Force One, the first lady became painfully honest. So much so that she even complained to youngsters battling childhood cancers about the misery...

    SEPTEMBER 20, 2014 The Islamic State . . . of Saudi Arabia Between beheadings, they’ll help train the “moderate” Syrian rebels. By Andrew C. McCarthy Andrew C. McCarthy The beheadings over the last several weeks were intended to terrorize, to intimidate, to coerce obedience, and to enforce a construction of sharia law that, being scripturally rooted, is draconian and repressive. And let’s not kid ourselves: We know there will be more beheadings in the coming weeks, and on into the future. Apostates from Islam, homosexuals, and perceived blasphemers will face brutal persecution and death. Women will be treated as chattel...

    ASK A LIBERAL: WHO LOST IRAQ? It's the new ‘Who Lost China?’ By Jeffrey Lord – 9.18.14 Who lost Iraq? In so many words, that is now the increasingly potent counter to years of liberal charges that America’s problems in the world can be traced to the Bush-Cheney foreign policy — specifically the invasion of 2003. The question has now taken root, with “Iraq” serving as shorthand for everything from Iraq itself to ISIS, the Syrian mess, Benghazi, and more. Graphically illustrated by the beheadings of two American journalists, a British aid worker, ISIS armies causing chaos in the once-stabilized...

    If The GOP Loses the Senate—Blame the Establishment By Laura Ingraham September 19, 2014 Now the concerned whispers are becoming audible groans. Turns out after premature high-fiving in certain Republican circles, the GOP just may be on the verge of blowing its opportunity to take control of the U.S. Senate in November. A few of us have been warning for months that unless the GOP responded smartly to the huge public outcry over the border surge, it would miss a chance to energize disaffected voters. We also urged our friends in the establishment that they shouldn’t take their primary victories...
