    President Clinton today dismissed William S. Sessions, the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, who had stubbornly rejected an Administration ultimatum to resign six months after a harsh internal ethics report on his conduct. Mr. Clinton said he would announce his nominee to replace Mr. Sessions on Tuesday. He was expected to pick Judge Louis J. Freeh of Federal District Court in Manhattan; officials said Judge Freeh had impressed Mr. Clinton favorably on Friday at their first meeting. Mr. Clinton, explaining his reasons for removing Mr. Sessions, effective immediately, said, "We cannot have a leadership vacuum at an agency...

    Former FBI Director Louis Freeh supports President-elect Donald Trump’s selection of Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) as America’s next attorney general, according to a new report. Freeh, who was appointed by former President Bill Clinton, sent a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee giving his “strong recommendation” Sessions receive the role, ABC News said Wednesday. “I have known Jeff since 1989 when we worked together as prosecutors on one of the most important civil rights cases investigated and prosecuted by the United States Department of Justice,” he wrote in a Tuesday letter. “[I] have always been greatly impressed with his...

    Super-lawyer and Clinton and Epstein pal Dershowitz recently testified in circuit court in Broward County, Florida. Transcripts of his testimony reveal that Clinton administration FBI chief Louis Freeh has been called in to run interference. Freeh served as FBI director from 1993 to 2001, during almost the entirety of the Clinton presidency. Freeh is representing Dershowitz , who recently has been at the center of civil claims involving allegations that he had sex with underage women on Epstein’s private plane and at parties on Epstein’s private island, including at times when Clinton also was on the island. “Well, we have...

    PANEL I LOUIS J. FREEH, DIRECTOR FEDERAL BUREAU OF INVESTIGATION ..... SEN. JOHN KERRY (D-MA): Thank you, Mr. Chairman. Mr. Bryant, I've got a couple of questions that I'd like you to answer, or Director Freeh to answer, at a later date, and provide me, if you would, the answers. The first one has to do with the question of -- are things worse in the United States today than they have been throughout this century? I mean, there's a tendency, I think, an understandable tendency, when you have an attack such as this, as we've experienced in the last...

    “When Clinton Lied, Nobody Died” B.S. by Col. Bob Pappas, USMC, Ret. The Democrat National Committee (DNC) is a past master at smear campaigns and predictably is the one that makes the most noise, like a child throwing a tantrum, when unvarnished truth comes back to haunt it. One of the hundreds of examples of Democrat smears appears as a Bumper Sticker (B.S.), “When Clinton lied, nobody died,” with the clear implication being that it was okay for Clinton to lie then, and for them to continue to lie now, just as the B.S. itself is a lie. As the...

    In recent days, pro-al Qaeda jihadists claimed to confirm a recent news report saying that several senior al Qaeda leaders have been released from Iranian custody. Sky News reported earlier this week that five veteran jihadists were released in exchange for an Iranian diplomat who had been kidnapped in Yemen. Several jihadists on Twitter who are connected to al Qaeda have said the report is accurate. One of them is known as “Al Siyasi al Mutaqa’id,” who has relayed accurate information on al Qaeda in the past. The five jihadists who were reportedly freed are: Saif al Adel, Abu Mohammed...

    The government of Iran released five senior members of Al Qaeda earlier this year, including the man who stepped in to serve as the terrorist group’s interim leader immediately after Osama bin Laden’s death, and who is the subject of a $5 million bounty, according to an American official who had been briefed on the matter. Iran’s release of the five men was part of a prisoner swap in March with Al Qaeda’s branch in Yemen, the group holding an Iranian diplomat, Nour Ahmad Nikbakht. Mr. Nikbakht was kidnapped in the Yemeni capital of Sana in July 2013.

    WASHINGTON -- A magistrate judge in the District Court of Washington, D.C. has dismissed a lawsuit by the survivors and families of victims of the June 25, 1996 Khobar Towers bombing in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia, that sought millions of dollars in damages against the government of the Islamic Republic of Iran. In an opinion handed down June 6, 2006, Judge Deborah A. Robinson asserted that the plaintiffs "offered no evidence regarding the action of any official, employee or agent" or the Iranian regime, its intelligence ministry (MOIS), or the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps, IRGC. The opinion comes at a delicate...

    In June of 2001 a Federal Grand Jury in Alexandria Virginia returned a 46 count indictment against fourteen individuals thought responsible for the June 25, 1996 bombing of the US Air Force housing complex, Building 131 at Khobar Towers in Saudi Arabia. Five years earlier, on the day of the Khobar bombing, never missing an opportunity to role-play as the sensitive but tough Chief Executive, Clinton proved once again that the most dangerous place to be in DC during his presidency - aside from Ft. Marcy Park - was between himself and a television camera, in this instance tersely making...

    In an op-ed appearing in today’s Wall Street Journal, former FBI Director Louis J. Freeh blasted the White House and National Security Council policy toward Iran during Joseph Sestak’s tenure as Director of Defense Policy. On Sestak’s watch, efforts to bring those responsible for the Khobar Towers bombing that killed nineteen U.S. military personnel ten years ago this Sunday, were hampered by the National Security Council, where Sestak “was responsible for national security and defense strategy, policies, programs, interagency and congressional coordination and regional political/military advice.” According to Freeh, despite admission by the bombers that they were trained by the...

    Nearly five years after a powerful truck bomb ripped through a U.S. military housing complex in Saudi Arabia – killing 19 Americans and wounding 372 – terrorism charges have been brought against 13 members of the pro-Iran Saudi Hizballah, or “Party of God.” Another, as yet unidentified, person who is linked to the Lebanese Hizballah has also been charged in the attack. According to the indictment returned today by a Federal Grand Jury in Alexandria, Virginia, nine of the fourteen are charged with 46 separate criminal counts including: conspiracy to kill Americans and employees of the United States, to use...

    Khobar Towers The Clinton administration left many stones unturnd. BY LOUIS J. FREEH Sunday, June 25, 2006 12:01 a.m. Ten years ago today, acting under direct orders from senior Iranian government leaders, the Saudi Hezbollah detonated a 25,000-pound TNT bomb that killed 19 U.S. airmen in their dormitory at Khobar Towers in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia. The blast wave destroyed Building 131 and grievously wounded hundreds of additional Air Force personnel. It also killed an unknown number of Saudi civilians in a nearby park. The 19 Americans murdered were members of the 4,404th Wing, who were risking their lives to enforce...

    WASHINGTON -- Former FBI Director Louis Freeh testified in court Tuesday against the government of Iran on behalf of victims' families in the bombing of a U.S. military apartment building in Saudi Arabia that killed 19 Air Force personnel. In testimony that lasted less than five minutes, Freeh renewed some of his past assertions about an Iranian role in the bombing that also wounded hundreds of people on June 25, 1996. If the government allows it, Freeh may testify more extensively in the lawsuit on behalf of the victims' families, who are seeking compensation. A U.S. criminal case is pending...

    A senior government official says the State Department is interfering with a civil lawsuit, creating setbacks for family members of victims of the 1996 bombing of a military barracks in Saudi Arabia. The official, who spoke on condition that he not be named, told Insight that the State Department is taking "active measures" to prevent family members of some of the 19 victims of the Khobar Towers bombing from proceeding with a civil court case that alleges Iran sponsored the bombing and seeks a judgment against the Islamic nation which the State Department itself lists as a country that sponsors...

With the Islamic Republic of Iran’s help he built a global nexus of militant warfare and terrorist operations.

    Wesley Clark the other day blamed the Bush administration for the intelligence failures leading to the September 11, 2001 attacks on the United States. And Hillary Clinton said, darkly, that the administration's refusal to hand over documents to a 9/11 commission "unnecessarily raises suspicions that it has something to hide." Meanwhile, Condi Rice in a speech last week pointed to the failure to take terrorism seriously during the 1990s — in other words, she pointed to Clinton administration failures. The war over the war on terror has just begun. In this battle, it's useful to stick to specifics. Let's take,...

    Brig. Gen. Terryl Schwalier was stunned when he read the account of the June 25, 1996 Khobar Towers bombing in Saudi Arabia that appeared in my recent book, Countdown to Crisis: the Coming Nuclear Showdown with Iran. I was writing many years after the fact, drawing on sources from inside Iranian intelligence but also on published U.S. government reports. It was those U.S. reports that prompted General Schwalier to contact me a few months ago. “You paint a picture of significant government awareness that “Iran was up to something” in the months prior to the Khobar Towers attack,” he wrote...

    The 1996 terrorist attack on Khobar Towers in Saudi Arabia that killed 19 United States airmen was among the defining events of America’s recent experience in the Middle East. But there has been no judicial accountability. With the reported arrest of the man accused of masterminding the crime, a resolution of the case may be closer. The truck bombing at the eight-story dormitory near the Dharan Air Base was the deadliest such attack on American forces since the 1983 bombing of the Marines’ barracks in Beirut that killed 241 American service members. In 2006, a federal court concluded that elements...
