Chataev has on several occasions avoided extradition to Russia on terrorism related charges because he had refugee status in Austria.</p>

    Abandoning reality At one point, you were probably worried about ISIS. It seemed like the horrific terrorist organization was on a real roll as its barbarian forces slaughtered their way across the middle east. They raped, tortured, burned, beheaded, crushed, and acidically-disolved their enemies while our leaders promised that they were being dealt with in the harshest possible way. We’d “contained” them, we’d “diminished” them, and - most importantly - we’d decimated their command and control capabilities. According to President Obama, the J.V. team is on the run.

    An unnamed Turkish official confirmed for Reuters news agency the attackers' countries of origin after Turkish media reports. Some agencies named one of the men as Osman Vadinov, said to have crossed into Turkey from the IS stronghold of Raqqa in Syria in 2015. Reports that he was a Chechen have been denied by an unnamed police source in the North Caucasus, Russia's Interfax news agency reports. IS has long recruited members from mainly Muslim parts of the former USSR, with at least 2,200 believed to have come from Russia alone, according to a report last year. ... Yildirim said...

    Hillary Clinton ignored the terror attack at İstanbul’s Atatürk Airport at a digital town hall event Tuesday night in Los Angeles. Rather than discuss the trio of ISIS-suspected suicide attacks that have so far claimed the lives of 41 and injured many more, Clinton discussed revenge porn, calling herself “Exhibit A,” but declining to explain more. Clinton also used the live event with YouTube stars to dump on Donald Trump. “I am not sympathetic to the xenophobia, the misogyny, the homophobia, the Islamophobia … or the sort of dog whistles that Trump uses to create that fervor among a lot...

    Istanbul’s Ataturk airport, Turkey’s largest, was hit with two suicide bombings yesterday that claimed the lives of at least 36 people. However, that grisly figure may rise further as there were also several dozen injured in the blasts, some of whom have been listed as critical. The airport was immediately shut down to commercial traffic.

He was a big, big, powerful, mean dude, something like Frank Ataturk. I don't know what his first name was. Anyway, do you know that the guy that runs Turkey now, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, although it's not pronounced that way. I've only heard Erdogan pronounced correctly once, and I don't remember how. The guy has practically implemented Sharia law throughout Turkey. This is the point. And if he hasn't completed it yet, that's the...

    How’d you like to be running a presidential campaign dependent on Muslims not acting up again between now and Nov. 8? It’s getting awfully hard for the media to keep being indignant about Trump’s proposed Muslim ban, as long as Muslims keep blowing things up and shooting people. I’m assuming here that The Washington Post has not already ruled the Muslims who blew up the Istanbul Airport to be self-hating gays infected by America’s culture of homophobia.

    This man is a real-life hero. Sadly, we don't yet know whether he made it out in time. It goes without saying that we can write many terrible stories about the terror attack at Atatürk Airport in Istanbul yesterday. Dozens of people died -- at least 36, and possibly as many as 50 -- and as many as 150 innocent travellers were injured. There is a story behind every single one of those deaths: a story that, sadly, was ended prematurely because of the actions of a few radical Muslims who hate all those who dare have different views than...

    But she did get around to releasing a written statement that said: “Today’s attack in Istanbul only strengthens our resolve to defeat the forces of terrorism and radical jihadism around the world. And it reminds us that the United States cannot retreat.” Radical jihadism. She probably never would have said even that phrase were it not for pressure from Trump’s excoriating her and Obama for refusing to identify the enemy, but she would no doubt insist (if asked, which she won’t be) that “radical jihadism” has nothing whatsoever to do with Islam.

    Secretary Of State John Kerry said ISIS had begun targeting airports as an act of despair in the face of defeat, hours after the attack that left up to 50 dead in Istanbul, Turkey. No one immediately claimed responsibility for the shootings and bombings at Ataturk airport but Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said all initial indications pointed to ISIS. Kerry spoke about the attack Tuesday evening while at the Aspen Ideas Festival in Colorado, referring to ISIS as Daesh, CBS News reported. 'It has been more than one year since Daesh has actually launched a full scale military offensive,...

    Four hours after three suicide bombers killed at least 41 people and wounded hundreds more at Istanbul’s Ataturk airport, CIA Director John Brennan said the attacks bore the grim hallmarks of ISIS and warned that the fanatically violent Islamic terrorist group wants to conduct similar large-scale attacks in the United States. “I am worried from the standpoint of an intelligence professional who looks at the capabilities of Daesh … and their determination to kill as many as people as possible and to carry out attacks abroad,” Brennan said in an exclusive interview at CIA headquarters with Yahoo News. Brennan credited...

According to the latest reports, at least 36 and possibly as many as 50 people have died. [TWEETS] Although one news outlet reports that ISIS has claimed responsibility for the attack, that report has not yet been confirmed. Even if ISIS doesn't claim responsibility, however, everything about this attack has 'ISIS' written all over it. First, it was yet another attack on an airport.

We believe this to be a reasonable request, and remain perplexed by the hostility that this has generated from the Kilgore campaign. The emails on which I have been cc'ed from gun owners across the state run the gamut from *pleading* with Mr. Kilgore to answer the VCDL survey and take a stand on gun rights, to furious gun owners saying that they have...

    Former Iraqi deputy prime minister Tariq Aziz is unwilling to testify against Saddam Hussein at a future war crimes trial, his lawyer told Agence France-Presse after a four-hour meeting with his client on Thursday at a US base near the capital. "Tariq Aziz told me that he will not take the witness stand against Saddam," said Badi Aref Izzat. The lawyer said that Aziz, who has been in US custody since his surrender in the immediate aftermath of last year's US-led invasion, had had no opportunity to see the ousted president. The 11 senior aides currently in custody were being...
