    Local O4P Event ^ | 9/8/2011 | Steel Wolf
    So, I inadvertently crashed an O4P event last night. Long story short, I wanted to see Undefeated, and I wound up with a little more than I bargained for. I thought I'd share some insights, while the scene is still fresh in my head. The local theater was hosting a private screening of the Undefeated, followed by a Q&A session with the director, Stephen Bannon. Mr. Bannon, was apparently pulled away at the last minute 'For a project that I think you'll all like', we were told, at which point none other than Andrew Brietbart was called to substitute in....

    BAGHDAD, Iraq - Insurgents have sought to intensify attacks during a Baghdad security crackdown and additional U.S. forces will be sent to areas outside the capital where militant groups are regrouping, the new commander of U.S. forces in Iraq said Thursday. U.S. Gen. David Petraeus said the troop buildups outside Baghdad will focus on Diyala province northeast of Baghdad, a growing hotbed for suspected Sunni extremists fleeing the U.S.-Iraqi security operation in Baghdad. But Petraeus stressed that military force alone is "not sufficient" to end the violence in Iraq and political talks must eventually include some militant groups now opposing...

    Iraqis aiding us, Abu leader admits ZAMBOANGA CITY -- An Abu Sayyaf leader has revealed that the kidnap-for-ransom gang receives money from people close to Iraqi President Saddam Hussein. Iraqi financial support for the extremist group, which now styles itself as the Al-Harakatul Al-Islamiya (Islamic Movement), started coming in when the Abu Sayyaf was able to demonstrate that it was capable of putting the Philippines in a bad light, said Hamsiraji Sali, a bandit leader based in Basilan. "We showed this by kidnapping more than 70 people in Tumahubong and Sinangkapan," Sali said in a phone interview. The bandit leader...

    President gives military 90-day deadline to crush the ASG PRESIDENT Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo on Friday imposed a 90-day deadline on the military to crush the Abu Sayyaf bandit group as she also ordered them to go after those responsible for an attack on a power transmission tower in Mindanao that resulted in an extensive power outage. The President cited the recent capture of an enclave operated by another Muslim rebel group after being given a week to do so as evidence the military "follow deadlines very well." "I suppose they'll be able (to do it.) If they have the proper allocation...
