    When Hillary Clinton is asked about her plan to invade Libya while she was secretary of state, she often passes the buck to President Obama, saying he ultimately had to make the final decision. But, new emails from WikiLeaks’ hack into Clinton’s private email server show she openly bragged about having a “critical voice” in the invasion of Libya, which ultimately led to the rise of the Islamic State and the Syrian refugee crisis. Take a look:

  • New Saudi King Named In 9/11 Suits

    President Obama should think before bowing to Saudi Arabia's new king in his Tuesday visit. King Salman has a history of funding al-Qaida, and his son has been accused of knowing in advance about the 9/11 attacks. When it comes to jihadism, Salman bin Abdulaziz al Saud is more of a hardliner than his older brother, King Abdullah, who died last week of a lung infection. As such, any commitment he makes to helping the U.S. destroy al-Qaida and Islamic State terrorists should be viewed with great suspicion. The 79-year-old Salman once ran a Saudi charity tied to al-Qaida and...

    The religion of violence has struck again and these are the savages that Barack Obama, John Kerry, and now John Boehner (no real surprise there) are wanting us to support. Alalam is now reporting that the Obama backed and supported al-Qaeda Syrian rebels forced 24 civilians off a bus traveling from Tarus to Ras al-Ain in the northeast of Syria and beheaded them all, including a mother and her baby. Alalam reports: Al-Qaeda linked terrorists in Syria have beheaded all 24 Syrian passengers traveling from Tartus to Ras al-Ain in northeast of Syria, among them a mother and a 40-days...

    Jodie Evans, 2008 Obama bundler and co-founder of the leftist anti-American group Code Pink, is in Yemen this week campaigning against the United States’ efforts in fighting the war on terror. This is in keeping with Code Pink’s decade-long history of working with terrorists and state sponsors of terrorism against the United States.While in Yemen, Evans is raising money for families of Yemenis being held at the terrorist detention center at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and possibly the family of slain al Qaeda leader Anwar al-Awlaki. Code Pink sent their top leadership, including Evans, Susan ‘Medea’ Benjamin and former diplomat Col....

    10:42 A.M. EDT THE PRESIDENT: Thank you all for coming. It's been my honor to welcome the leadership of the United States Congress here, to welcome them back from the August recess. We talked about a variety of issues -- talked about the defense appropriations bill, and terrorism insurance, and an energy bill. Spent most of our time talking about a serious threat to the United States, a serious threat to the world, and that's Saddam Hussein. One of the things I made very clear to the members here is that doing nothing about that serious threat is not an...

The UK prime minister on Wednesday again promised to produce a dossier of evidence against Iraq "in the next few weeks". Dossier...

    Commenting on reports that the Iraqi leadership has declared its willingness to discuss a return of U.N. weapons inspectors, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld said the regime of Saddam Hussein had demonstrated "a wonderful talent and skill" over the years at manipulating the international community. "When it's the right moment to lean forward, they lean forward. When it's the right moment to lean back, they lean back. It's a dance they engage in," Rumsfeld said at a press conference Tuesday, in response to questions. Rumsfeld commented on remarks by Iraqi Deputy Prime Minister Tarik Aziz, who said at the economic World...

    "We ask for your help to make the Sept. 11 anniversary a time to reflect on peace and healing, not a time to call for more war and violence." These are the words of Kelly Campbell, who lost a brother-in-law to the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11. She is a founding member and co-director of Peaceful Tomorrows, an organization started by Sept. 11 families who advocate peace, not war. I heard her speak in New York at the national conference of the Fellowship of Reconciliation in June. The theme of the conference was "The Power of Nonviolence: Exploring Alternatives." I...

    The British government will publish "in the next few weeks" details of evidence indicating that Saddam Hussein has continued to try to acquire weapons of mass destruction, Prime Minister Tony Blair said Tuesday. The plan mirrors the action taken by Britain in the wake of the Sept. 11 attacks to boost international support for military action against Afghanistan. Speaking to reporters at a news conference in his parliamentary district of Sedgefield in northern England, Blair said, "The United States should not have to face this issue (of Iraq) alone. We should face it together." Blair said it was in the...

And now it is nearly upon us that weight has become almost intolerable. What happened to the 2,823 Americans and their families was unutterable and I hate the malevolent malcontents who perpetrate these acts – indeed the Tunisian-Swedish hijacker arrested on Friday may be one such plotter. However, I have to make this unambiguous proclamation to...

    NEW YORK (Reuters) - The economic cost New York City suffers as the result of the Sept. 11 attacks will range from $83 billion to $95 billion, partly depending upon how many jobs are shifted out of the city, a new report said on Wednesday. City Comptroller William Thompson also estimated in his new report that it will cost $21.8 billion to replace the buildings, infrastructure and what he called "tenant assets" lost as a result of the attacks that toppled the World Trade Center. Some 13 million square feet of prime office space were destroyed -- an amount equal...

    <p>Now that we are set to have our great debate on the war against terrorism, it seems it will be the wrong debate.</p> <p>By all indications, the discussion will be about using our irresistible military might against a single country in order to bring down its leader. We should instead be talking about using all our political, moral and military genius to support a vast democratic revolution to liberate all the peoples of the Middle East from tyranny. That is our real mission, the essence of the war in which we are engaged, and the proper subject of our national debate.</p>

    September 4, 2002 9:00 a.m. It’s a War, Stupid Understanding and misunderstanding the detainees. From the September 16, 2002, issue of National Review. ven as the terrorist attacks were taking place last September 11, President Bush made use of the extraordinary authority he has to protect Americans from enemy action. Had the heroes of United Flight 93 not prevented their hijacked plane from reaching Washington, F-16s — deployed by President Bush — would have shot down the plane full of American citizens. There is no question that this first defensive action taken by the president in the war on terrorism...

    A majority of Europeans think that US foreign policy is partially to blame for the September 11 terrorist attacks on New York and Washington. A survey of American and European attitudes towards foreign relations found that 55 per cent of respondents from six European countries agreed that US policy had contributed to the attacks. The poll also found widespread public support within the US for an invasion of Iraq, with 75 per cent of American respondents in favour of using military force to overthrow Saddam Hussein and incite regime change. But both European and American respondents were cautious about the...
