    In one of the numerous interviews he has given over the past few weeks focusing on the next Synod, Cardinal Gerhard Ludwig Müller, Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, spoke about a new task for his dicastery. It is a task that is never been mentioned in the documents outlining the precise competencies of the former Holy Office. In an interview with French Catholic newspaper La Croix, the German cardinal stated: “The arrival of a theologian like Benedict XVI in the Chair of St. Peter was no doubt an exception. But John XXIII was not a...

    D’oh, essentially Mueller was a victim of believing a life-long liberalist narrative where all dangers of the world can be eliminated if we just hug each other more. Kayla’s ‘go give-em-hugs’ efforts led her to Syria, where ISIS appreciated her naiveté, took her as a hostage and sold her to a militant commander to use as a war trophy.

    An American aid worker who died while being held by Islamic State may have been married off to a senior jihadist leader, US intelligence chiefs believe. Electronic surveillance suggested that Kayla Mueller, 26, was often with a particular Isis commander whose communications were being tracked by US spies, according to officials. “Isis didn’t see her as a hostage or a bargaining chip,” a counter-terrorism official told the ABC network.

    It was the moment Omar Alkhani believed he was about to secure the release of his girlfriend, the last American hostage held by Islamic State. Kayla Mueller stood before him in her dimly lit cell dressed in a traditional long black abaya cloak, her face covered. At great personal risk, Omar had ventured into the heart of the terror group's power base in Syria to try to bring her home. Naively, perhaps, he was convinced that all Kayla had to do was confirm their cover story that they were man and wife to the IS 'judge' standing between them.

    Kayla Mueller, the young American activist kidnapped by Islamic State terrorists 18 months ago, is dead, probably after being murdered by her captors. Mueller was abducted by Islamic State (a.k.a. ISIS or ISIL) as she left a Doctors Without Borders hospital in Aleppo, Syria and held by IS in its stronghold of Raqqa, Syria. A U.S. mission to liberate Mueller and other American hostages last year failed.

    WASHINGTON -- Nine days after the federal government raided their homes and businesses, leaders of an alleged terror financing operation were given the opportunity to question the agency investigating them. The meeting on March 29, 2002, in the office of Rep. Frank Wolf (R-Va.) is an example of the political clout of what the government calls the "Safa Group," a web of companies and nonprofits based in northern Virginia. One week later, former Treasury Secretary Paul O'Neill met with Muslim leaders with connections to the Safa Group to hear complaints about the raids. The leaders are suspected of running more...

    Homeland Insecurity: The White House assures that tracking our every phone call and keystroke is to stop terrorists, and yet it won't snoop in mosques, where the terrorists are. That's right, the government's sweeping surveillance of our most private communications excludes the jihad factories where homegrown terrorists are radicalized. Since October 2011, mosques have been off-limits to FBI agents. No more surveillance or undercover string operations without high-level approval from a special oversight body at the Justice Department dubbed the Sensitive Operations Review Committee. Who makes up this body, and how do they decide requests? Nobody knows; the names of...

He told Bishop Gerhard Mueller, head of the Congregation for the Doctrine of Faith - the Vatican watchdog that deals with sex abuse cases - to ensure that perpetrators were punished. It was the Argentine Pope's first public statement on clerical sex abuse. A leading sex abuse survivors' group has responded with scepticism, saying "actions speak louder than words". The new Pope was elected last month, replacing Pope Benedict, who became the first pope in 600 years to resign. When first elected, Benedict...

So what are the criteria the Bureau uses to figure out what materials are offensive? And who decides? You’ll...

    FBI Director Defends Use of Informants in Mosques June 08, 2009 LOS ANGELES — FBI Director Robert Mueller on Monday defended the agency's use of informants within U.S. mosques, despite complaints from Muslim organizations that worshippers and clerics are being targeted instead of possible terrorists. Mueller's comments came just days after a Michigan Muslim organization asked the Justice Department to investigate complaints that the FBI is asking the faithful to spy on Islamic leaders and worshippers. Similar alarm followed the disclosure earlier this year that the FBI planted a spy in Southern California mosques. "We don't investigate places, we investigate...

An article this morning in The Washington Post dramatically touted the hearing as one in which, as the headline put it, "Lawmakers Are Seeking Answers in Anthrax Case -- FBI's Mueller to Be Queried by House Panel About Evidence Against Researcher." The article itself claimed that "the strength of the government's evidence against Bruce E. Ivins . . . will be tested anew today when FBI Director Robert S. Mueller III appears before the House Judiciary Committee" .....Mueller won't provide the Committee with even...

    The director of the FBI is not happy with the Supreme Court's recent handgun ruling. Robert Mueller says he tends to believe that "weapons harm people, and more often than not they harm the people carrying them." Mueller said the high court's decision, which threw out a handgun ban in Washington, D.C., "does throw a lot of things up in the air." Mueller said communities will now have to decide their own licensing programs. Mueller was speaking at a convention of the International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators in Hartford, Connecticut. He says with his grandchildren going to college,...

    HARTFORD, Conn. -- The director of the FBI is not happy with the Supreme Court's recent handgun ruling. Robert Mueller said he tends to believe that "weapons harm people, and more often than not they harm the people carrying them." Mueller said the high court's decision, which threw out a handgun ban in Washington, D.C., "does throw a lot of things up in the air." Last week, the Supreme Court struck down the District of Columbia's 32-year-old ban on handguns by a 5-4 vote. It was the first major pronouncement on gun rights in history. Mueller said communities now will...

    WASHINGTON -- The FBI is grappling with growing numbers of public corruption cases and a surge in mortgage fraud investigations, FBI Director Robert Mueller said Thursday, wondering aloud whether Americans are "becoming more crooked." In a speech to the American Bar Association, Mueller asked the assembled defense lawyers for help in "creating a culture of integrity" by reporting evidence of wrongdoing by politicians and corporate executives alike. "Anyone who follows the news these days and sees repeated references to corporate fraud and public corruption might think the nation is in the midst of a moral crisis," Mueller told the defense...

    FBI chief blames Britain’s laws for the ‘dark hole’ in terror intelligence 13th April 2008 The war on terror is being hindered by restrictive British law which has created a "dark hole of intelligence", the director of the FBI has claimed. Robert Mueller, America's top counter-terrorist official, said in an exclusive interview that he sometimes felt "frustration" at MI5 and Scotland Yard's inability to obtain critical information from suspects. He blamed Britain's banning of plea-bargaining – which, in America, means suspects can receive much lighter sentences in return for revealing everything they know about other members of their cell and...

    Two weeks ago, not far from here, bells tolled at Ground Zero. We commemorated the sixth anniversary of the September 11th attacks. And we marked the passage of another year without a terrorist attack on American soil. It is important to pause and reflect on how we reached this milestone, so that we can better understand what we must do to reach another one. This task grows more complicated with every passing year. In the wake of the September 11th attacks, the focus of the nation was crystallized. Our objective was clear: We knew who, and where, our enemies were,...

    Then-Attorney General John D. Ashcroft was "feeble," "barely articulate" and "stressed" moments after a hospital room confrontation in March 2004 with Alberto R. Gonzales, who wanted Ashcroft to approve a warrantless wiretapping program over Justice Department objections, according to notes from FBI Director Robert S. Mueller III that were released yesterday. One of Mueller's entries in five pages of a daily log pertaining to the dispute also indicated that Ashcroft's deputy was so concerned about undue pressure by Gonzales and other White House aides for the attorney general to back the wiretapping program that the deputy asked Mueller to bar...
