    (CNSNews.com) -- Elements of the February 17 Martyrs Brigade, the Libyan militia hired by the U.S. State Department to station members as residents inside the U.S. compound in Benghazi and to protect the U.S. diplomats there, were “complicit” in the Sept. 11, 2012 terrorist attack that killed Amb. Chris Stevens and three other Americans, according to the testimony of Greg Hicks, who was the department's second-ranking diplomat in Libya at the time of the attack. “Certainly, elements of that militia were complicit in the attacks,” Greg Hicks, the State Department’s former deputy chief of mission in Libya told the House...

    Uncle Sam's open support for jihad is an epic scandal that is never even acknowledged. Farenthold [Congressman-Rep-Texas]: "Were you aware of any ties by that militia to Islamic extremists?" Nordstrom: "Absolutely. Yeah, we had that discussion on a number of occasions, the last of which was when there was a Facebook posting of a threat that named Ambassador Stevens and Sen. (John) McCain, who was coming out for the elections. That was in the July (2012) time frame. I met with some of my agents and also some (CIA) annex personnel and we discussed that." More news: Nordstrom seems to...

    That CBSÂ’ Face the Nation host Bob Schieffer, of all people, nodded in agreement when Rep. Darrell Issa asserted on SchiefferÂ’s Sunday morning show that the administration had engaged in a cover-up regarding Benghazi is a huge sign that this scandal is finally being taken seriously by the most traditional establishment liberal media.This is bad news for such ĂĽber-establishment figures as Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, but they are politicians who come and, alas eventually, though it seems to take forever, go.More problematically, a permanent organ of our government has been so besmirched by Benghazi it may take years fully...
  • US Hired al-Qaida-Linked Group to Defend Benghazi Mission

    The Libyan militia group that the State Department hired to defend its embattled diplomatic mission in Benghazi had clear al-Qaida sympathies, and had prominently displayed the al-Qaida flag on a Facebook page for some months before the deadly attack. That organization, the February 17th Martyrs Brigade, was paid by the U.S. government to provide security at the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya. But there is no indication the Martyrs Brigade fulfilled its commitment to defend the mission on Sept. 11, when it came under attack. The assault claimed the lives of four Americans: Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, information officer...

    WASHINGTON -- The former head of a 16-member U.S. military team in Libya said Wednesday the consulate in Benghazi, where the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans were killed, never had the forces it needed to protect itself. Lt. Col. Andrew Wood told the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee that U.S. security was so weak that in April, only one U.S. diplomatic security agent was stationed in Benghazi. The committee hearing followed assertions Tuesday night by the State Department that it never concluded that the Sept. 11 attack stemmed from protests over an American-made video ridiculing Islam. Ambassador Chris...

    The Benghazi Mess (Literally, As Well As Figuratively) Stephen Fidler, writing in the Wall Street Journal, has provided an extensive update on the situation in Benghazi that focuses on the unsecured documents that remain scattered around the consulate. Because the situation is still regarded as too dangerous, the FBI has not been allowed to go in. However, others have, including CNN, and a great deal is already known about what “goodies” are accessible among the U.S. documents. Fidler says, giving an example, “At least one document found amid the clutter indicates that Americans at the mission were discussing the possibility...

    Psychotic Death Cult Photo Album Hamas member and aspiring suicide terrorist Taher Al-Ja'ara, posing with his mother, superimposed on a background of "paradise". Al-Ja'ara was elevated into martyrdom by Israeli forces on April 22, 2002. He was apparently responsible for the bombing of a bus at Emmanuel in December 2001 that killed 10. The Al-Qassam Brigade, the military wing of Hamas which has murdered and crippled hundreds of innocent people, has a website, at www.qassam.net . Each of the group's "martyr"s has a one page biography and a one page "album" of photographs. Every Al-Qassam member who is killed in...

    Terrorism as a form of entertainment This week we're featuring images and movies from www.qassam.net, in honor of the ISP's attempt to block us from accessing the site. Today's 'episode' is The Road Bomb. It goes like this: first they bury a bomb in a road. Then they retreat to a nearby hillside with a video camera. When an Israel truck drives over the bomb, they blow it to pieces, killing the occupants, and capturing the whole thing on tape. The tape is broadcase on Arab television, and then is uploaded to their webside, so they can share it...

    Palestinian sources said Monday that in the Jenin area Israeli troops killed a member of the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, the military wing of Fatah. The man was identified as Ghazal Farahat, 23. His family said they were asleep in their beds when soldiers burst into the house overnight and detained Ghazal. Shortly afterwards they heard gunshots and were later told by the soldiers they had killed him. Israeli officials said Farahat was killed after he tried to escape by climbing down a drain pipe of the house and attempting to escape. Farahat's father, Mohammed, said soldiers came to his house...
