    Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson told lawmakers that he will not sign off on an Obama administration proposal to reverse a longstanding ban on Libyan nationals studying in U.S. flight schools and training here in nuclear science. Asked by lawmakers Wednesday if Johnson intended to go along with the plan, he responded that he would not sign off on it, the Washington Times reported.

    The Obama administration has drawn up draft rules that would end a decades-long ban on Libyans getting military training in the U.S., according to documents obtained by House Republicans who said Thursday that it’s the wrong move after last year’s Benghazi attack. The administration says relations with Libya have “normalized,” and that the Libyan government has earned the right to have better relations with the U.S., which first imposed the ban in 1983 after a wave of terrorist attacks involving Libyans. But House Judiciary Committee Chairman Robert W. Goodlatte and Rep. Jason Chaffetz said Libya remains a dangerous hotspot and...
  • R2PAQ (‘Responsibility to Protect Al-Qaeda’)

    The supposed “responsibility to protect” has taken America into a war on the side of the ultimate killers of innocents. (See also "Rebel Libya: ‘Brothers who fought in Iraq and Afghanistan, now is the time to defend your land!" on the Tatler.) In the absence of any evident national interest justification for bombing Libya, the Obama administration is said to have been motivated by the so-called responsibility to protect — or “R2P” per the wonkish English acronym. In American discussions, “R2P” has quickly come to be associated with Obama advisor Samantha Power. But “R2P” did not emerge full-grown from the...

    New light is being shed on the 2001 anthrax attacks in a fascinating open letter to Ayman al Zawahiri of al Qaeda, written by a jihadi living in London. Numan Bin Uthman, a former leader of an armed Islamic group in Libya, provides yet more evidence that the global Islamic jihad movement is losing its resolve.  But the letter contains a startling admission. Uthman tells us of a conversation he had with al Qaeda leaders before the 9/11 attacks in which he urged them not to use WMD. From AKI News: Uthman also said that he had taken part in...

  • 'Thank God for Gordon': Gaddafi orders Libyans to pray for Brown - to thank him the Lockerbie

    Libya will mark the first anniversary of the release of the Lockerbie bomber Abdelbaset Al Megrahi by thanking God for Gordon Brown and Kenny MacAskill, the two men who let him go. Colonel Gaddafi, the country’s dictator, has ordered prayers to mark Friday’s anniversary of the decision to free Al Megrahi from a Scottish prison on compassionate grounds. The Libyan leader is keen to avoid a repeat of the international condemnation sparked by the decision to give the convicted terrorist a hero’s welcome when he returned to Libya on August 20, 2009, allegedly with just three months to live.

    Nearly five months after his controversial release from a Scottish prison, the Lockerbie bomber has outlived his prognosis—enraging the loved ones of his victims on Pan Am Flight 103. Never mind the Underpants Bomber, who failed to blow up a jetliner over Detroit on Christmas Day and will now feel the full force of the American criminal justice system. The Lockerbie Bomber, who was successful, is alive and living quietly at home in Libya—nearly five months after his so-called “compassionate release” from a Scottish prison. Fifty-seven-year-old terrorist Abdelbeset Ali Mohmed al Megrahi—handed a life sentence after being found guilty in...

    LONDON - Two Libyans accused of being linked to al Qaeda won an appeal against their forced removal from Britain in a test case on Friday, prompting an angry response from Prime Minister Tony Blair. The men, identified only as DD and AS, said they would be mistreated because of their religious and political beliefs if they were sent back to Libya. The Home Office, which argued the men were a threat to national security, had attempted to deport them under the terms of a 2005 memo of understanding between London and Tripoli which promises that suspects deported to Libya...

    "Fox & Friends," anchor Lauren Green has a news flash for gossiphounds curious about her love life: Females need not apply. "It's hard enough to find a date" said Green, responding to media and bloggers attempting to link her romantically to Secretary of State Condolezza Rice. "You know what I mean. I don't need that!" Green said, laughing off the rumors that wouldn't be floating if NYC newspaper columnists bothered to call Lauren for comment. Gay is cool, but it's just not Green's persuasion: "I am not gay. I am very straight. All Christian men, single and over 35 can...
  • CLEOPATRA WAS A BLONDE - (terrific brief history of Egypt's rich past; optimistic democratic future)

    No, this is not a blonde joke. If you want one of those, go to this week’s Humor File. Cleopatra was in fact a blonde. That’s because she was not Egyptian. She was a Macedonian Greek, with hair as blonde as Alexander’s. Alexander conquered Egypt in 332 BC, then went on to subdue all of the Middle East. When he died nine years later, his just-conquered empire was fought over and carved up by his generals. The one who ended up running Egypt was Ptolemy (367-283 BC). Declaring himself Pharaoh, he founded the Ptolemaic Dynasty, with twelve Ptolemies in succession,...

    CARACAS, Venezuela - Opposition leaders are hoping a new international effort will come up with a plan to end the seven-week strike against President Hugo Chavez and lead to an agreement on elections. Representatives from the United States, Mexico, Brazil, Chile, Spain and Portugal agreed to create the new forum this week known as the "Group of Friends of Venezuela" to seek solutions to the work stoppage. Strike leaders are demanding Chavez agree to a plebiscite in February on his presidency. Although the vote would be nonbinding, strike leaders believe Chavez would be so embarrassed by the outcome he would...
