    At the National Review, December 14, 2011, there is a past article entitled "John Kerry reporting for duty ... to the Muslim Brotherhood." In that article, it says that the Obama administration described the organization as a "largely secular" and moderate organization. Just two years later, Kerry said that the overthrow of these same "moderates" constituted a return of Democracy to Egypt. Now we hear Kerry and Co. saying that the Syrian rebels are "moderates," too. Riiiiight. The ones that are cannibals? The ones that even Turkish newspapers have past documention on as being caught with 2kg of Sarin gas...

    After a 45-minute walk Friday night, President Barack Obama made a fateful decision that none of his top national security advisers saw coming: To seek congressional authorization before taking military action in Syria. The stunning about-face after a week of U.S. saber rattling risked not only igniting a protracted congressional fight, which could end with a vote against strikes, but a backlash from allies in the Middle East who had warned the White House that inaction would embolden not only Syrian President Bashar al-Assad but his closest allies, Iran and Hezbollah. Aides said the decision was made by Mr. Obama...

    The Thomas More Law Center (TMLC), a national public interest law firm based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, announced late last week that it is representing U.S. Army Lieutenant Colonel Matthew Dooley, a 1994 Graduate of the U. S. Military Academy at West Point and released the letter sent by 57 Muslim groups demanding the removal of military instructions that they say is offensive to Islam. In April 2012, LTC Dooley, a highly decorated combat veteran, was publically condemned by General Martin Dempsey, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and relieved of his teaching assignment because of the negative way...

    We didn’t get to this yesterday, but it’s definitely worth watching — especially for the skill shown by Lindsey Graham in his examination of Leon Panetta and General Martin Dempsey. The headline takeaway will be what is remembered most: the revelation that Barack Obama never bothered to keep in touch with his chair of the Joint Chiefs and Secretary of Defense after being informed that an American consulate was under attack from terrorists. But if that’s all you hear from this, you’re missing the big picture. Graham managed to elicit a number of damaging statements from the two. Not one...

    Now Is The Time For All Good Men To Come To The Aid Of Their Country by sending a   Facebook message to Joint Chief of Staff Chairman Army General Martin Dempsey at http://www.facebook.com/GENDempsey In the past few days, General Dempsey railed against an 18 year combat veteran, Lieutenant Colonel Matthew Dooley, for teaching a course Perspectives on Islam and Radical Islamization, which rightly portrays a segment of Islam as "radical." Who would guess? For all practical purposes, Lieutenant Colonel Dooley's decorated career is over, because of this dressing down from the highest military command.According to reports, 57 Islamic organizations petitioned President Obama to "severely discipline"...
