  • Obama Fires Top General Without Even a Phone Call

    Obama Fires Top General Without Even a Phone Call Daniel Halper January 25, 2013 10:26 AM President Barack Obama fired General James Mattis, the head of Central Command, without even calling the general to let him know he was being replaced. "I am told that General Mattis was travelling and in a meeting when an aide passed him a note telling him that the Pentagon had announced his replacement as head of Central Command. It was news to him -- he hadn't received a phone call or a heads-up from anyone at the Pentagon or the White House," Thomas E....
  • Report: Gen. Mattis Forced Out of CENTCOM for Questioning Obama's Advisers

    Reports indicate that Marine General James Mattis is being forced out of CENTCOM for questioning certain aspects of the Obama administration's Middle East policy. In particular, it appears his questions surrounding the U.S. response to Iran's nuclear ambitions drew the ire of civilian military and security advisers. These civilians were apparently upset by the way Mattis pushed them to "consider second and third-order consequences of military action against Iran." Nor did they appreciate the way he pushed them to think long term and consider what the U.S. will do if Iran develops non-nuclear weapons that can be used to keep...

    Maurice “Mad Dog” Vachon, one of Quebec’s biggest wrestling icons, died in his sleep Thursday morning in Omaha, Nebraska. He was 84. Originally from Ville-Émard, Vachon’s professional wrestling career was built on his unorthodox style, his legendary beard and his bad temper. “He’s the best-known Quebec wrestler outside of Quebec. A legend,” says Pat Laprade, the author of a book on wrestling in the province. Vachon participated in the 1948 London Olympics, where he finished 7th. In the 1960s, his career as a heavyweight wrestler took off after being recruited to the American Wrestling Association. He was the AWA’s World...

    Man confesses on camera to shooting Libyan leader twice in head and chest A Libyan rebel confessed on camera Sunday to killing Muammar Gaddafi. The provisional government in Libya is claiming Gaddafi was killed in a shootout in the city of Sirte, where the ousted leader had been hiding. However, following his death videos began to surface showing Gaddafi bleeding while being held by rebels, which raised the suspicion he was executed. The rebel, who identified himself as Senad el Sadık el Ureybi, said: "We grabbed him, I hit him in the face. Some fighters wanted to take him away...

    US government has accused Britain of legitimising the Gaddafi regime after the massacre of hundreds of pro-democracy demonstrators in Libya. Louis Susman, the US ambassador to London, suggested moves to repair relations with the Libyan dictator had only served to give him "greater stature" on the world stage while campaigners condemned the rapprochement as a failure. Mr Susman said: “I would suggest that to deal with him, to give him greater stature, greater ability on the world front to look like he is a good citizen is a mistake.” Up to 300 demonstrators are thought to have been killed after...

    TRIPOLI, Feb 13 (Reuters) - Palestinian refugees should capitalise on the wave of popular revolts in the Middle East by massing peacefully on the borders of Israel until it gives in to their demands, Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi said on Sunday. Gaddafi is respected in many parts of the Arab world for his uncompromising criticism of Israel and Arab leaders who have dealings with the Jewish state, though some people in the region dismiss his initiatives as unrealistic. He was giving his first major speech since a popular uprising in neighbouring Egypt forced President Hosni Mubarak to resign, an event...

    For the vast majority of Americans the War on Terror (oops..forgot..we can't say that anymore) began on 9/11. In truth, it began decades, if not longer ago. The 1979 burning of the US Embassy in Islamabad, the 1983 suicide bombing of the Marine barracks in Lebanon...the list is long, the names of the dead forgotten but for their loved ones. For me, the raid on the Libyan madman is especially worth remembering, but sadly for the wrong reasons...

    President Hosni Mubarak has resumed meetings with Arab leaders who have continued to arrive to Egypt to congratulate him on his successful surgery in Germany last month. Yesterday Mubarak met with Libyan President Muammar Qadhafi. The reception delegation consisted of Prime Minister Ahmed Nazif, Minister of Information Anas el-Fiqqi, and Governor of South Sinai Abdel Fadil Shousha. Discussions between the leaders focused on bilateral relationships, the results of the Arab summit in Libya, and the situations in Palestine, Iraq, and Sudan. Qadhafi said there was no damage caused in the Arab region by Iceland's volcanic ash cloud. He labeled the...

    A bipartisan group of House members is blasting the Obama administration for its plan to send $400,000 to foundations connected to the children of Libyan President Moammar Gadhafi. The group of more than two dozen lawmakers, led by Rep. Mark Kirk (R-Ill.), said that the State Department proposal to provide funds to nonprofit groups led by Gadhafi's son and daughter sends the wrong message to families of victims of the 1988 Lockerbie plane bombing. Gadhafi last month celebrated the return to Libya of the only person convicted in the bombing, Abdelbaset al Megrahi, who was released by the Scottish government...

    Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi has cancelled a planned visit to Canada next week. Officials confirmed Saturday that Gadhafi had scrapped plans to land in Newfoundland this Tuesday to refuel his plane. One report said hotel reservations for the leader had been cancelled and his advance team had left. The planned visit had caused a stir in Canada, with Prime Minister Stephen Harper ordering Foreign Minister Lawrence Cannon to greet the despot upon his arrival to express this country's outrage over the reception Libya recently gave to the newly released Lockerbie bomber. Abdel Baset al-Megrahi, an alleged former Libyan intelligence officer,...

    Libya's Moammar Gadhafi said Thursday, in a rare appearance before a U.S. audience, that he evolved from a firebrand revolutionary into a seasoned ruler over four decades in power, contributing to his decision six years ago to dismantle his country's weapons of mass destruction... Clad in a black suit and a transparent black robe, he fielded questions for an hour Thursday at the Council on Foreign Relations, a prestigious think tank. Under Gadhafi, Libya had long been a pariah state, sponsoring terrorist groups and trying to undermine pro-Western governments in Africa. The nation gradually emerged from its isolation in recent...

    There are no (non-profane) words for this, via CBS2 Chicago (h/t Andy McCarthy): The Obama Administration plans to give $400,000 in funding to a Libyan charity run by the Gadhafi family, and U.S. Rep. Mark Kirk (R-Ill.) wants the grant withdrawn. The money would be divided between two foundations run by the family of Libyan leader Muammar Gadhafi. A $200,000 share is set to go to the Gadhafi Development Foundation, which is run by Gadhafi’s son, Saif, and another $200,000 are to go to Wa Attassimou, an organization run by Muammar Gadhafi’s daughter, Aisha. Kirk says the grants should be...

    AM looking at the man who murdered my husband -- and he's in the city we loved and lived in together. I never thought I would live to see this day. Here I was in Midtown Manhattan, less than a mile from the United Nations, watching Moammar Khadafy address this world body one month almost to the day after his agent, a convicted mass murderer, was released from a Scottish prison and flown home to a hero's welcome. It's a scandal. Tony Hawkins, my late husband who died on Pan Am Flight 103, was born in London but lived the...

    US winemakers seek to reduce alcohol content By Tom Leonard, in New York Last Updated: 2:47am GMT 11/01/2008 Winemakers in California are attempting to reduce the alcohol level in their notoriously powerful reds and whites. Californian "monster" wines regularly contain 15% vol alcohol and some are as high as 17%, alarming some of their own producers despite the praise of critics. The winemakers have responded by picking grapes earlier and employing other tactics designed to produce the more "balanced", lower alcohol wines that are popular in Europe. They say the move has in part been prompted by demand from American...

    Kerry Lashes Out At Bush (AP) NEW YORK A defiant Sen. John Kerry on Friday lashed out sharply against President Bush and his team of advisers, calling them "the Katrina Administration" and "the most incompetent people I've ever seen." The Massachusetts Democrat and 2004 presidential nominee also suggested Republicans hope to scuttle comprehensive immigration legislation pending in the U.S. Senate in order to prevent immigrants from becoming voters. Kerry made the remarks via teleconference at a breakfast gathering of the National Action Network, an advocacy group founded by the Rev. Al Sharpton, who competed against Kerry in the 2004 Democratic...

    A poll carried out in the Palestinian Authority shows 65% support for Al Qaeda terror attacks on the United States and European countries - the biggest donors to the PA. The poll comes at a time when US and European funding of the Palestinian Authority is at an all-time high. With elections due to be held next month and the Hamas terror group gaining significantly in municipal elections and polls, the survey further illustrates the desire of a majority of PA Arabs to establish an Islamic state, similar to Iran. A whopping 79.9% of Palestinians would like the PA to...

    TRIPOLI (Reuters) - Libya made clear on Saturday it wanted to come in from the cold after decades as a pariah state, and the United States and Britain promised to reward its decision to abandon banned weapons programs. Almost 15 years to the day since its agents brought down a Pan Am airliner over Lockerbie, Muammar Gaddafi's state opened the prospect of an end to sanctions and a return of U.S. oil firms with a pledge on Friday to stop seeking weapons of mass destruction. Britain said it had been close to an atomic bomb. Some U.S. officials cautioned that...

Rabies, "mad dog disease" in Chinese, killed 1,297 people up to the end of September, far exceeding the 1,003 deaths the Health Ministry reported for all of 2002, the newspaper said. This is the fifth straight year that China has seen a big jump in rabies infections.
