    John W. Gaissert, the police chief of Commerce, Georgia, near the MOA camp in Franklin County, is a retired Navy commander who has spent a career in law enforcement, working directly on military and civilian counter-terrorism issues. Gaissert was a security consultant for the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta and also testified in 2010 to a U.S. House Subcommittee on Intelligence. He believes it would be a mistake to dismiss Jamaat Fuqra and Muslims of America as merely pietistic Muslims trying to live in peace out in the countryside. “Their spiritual mentor is Sheikh Gilani and his concept is to...

    A man reported to be a serving soldier is dead and two people have been shot in Woolwich, south east London, after what Sky sources understand is being treated as a terrorist attack. Downing Street has called a meeting of the Government's Cobra emergency committee after the incident in John Wilson Street, which David Cameron described as "truly shocking". Sky sources understand that senior police officers believe the killing was likely to be a politically-motivated Islamist terrorist attack. Dozens of weapons - including a number of knives - and pools of blood could be seen on the ground, where a...

    It sounds like a plot out of an espionage thriller: An elite group of special-forces soldiers goes rogue, vowing to stop a politically ambitious president. In reality, a group of former special-operations warriors in fact has precisely that goal in mind. And to accomplish their aim, they have created their own super PAC. Ryan Zinke, a former Navy SEAL Commander and Republican state senator from Montana, has announced the formation of a new Special Operations for America PAC. He told Newsmax in an exclusive interview that the PAC is dedicated to supporting a strong military, and hopes to give the...
  • Barack Obama makes Falklands gaffe by calling Malvinas the Maldives

    Telegraph (UK) ^ | 3:50PM BST 16 Apr 2012 | By Jonathan Gilbert in Buenos Aires
    President Obama erred during a speech at the Summit of the Americas in Cartagena, Colombia, when attempting to call the disputed archipelago by its Spanish name. Instead of saying Malvinas, however, Mr Obama referred to the islands as the Maldives, a group of 26 atolls off that lie off the South coast of India. Cristina Kirchner, the Argentine president, has renewed her country's sovereignty claim to the Falklands in the build-up to the 30th anniversary of the Argentine invasion of the islands, which triggered the Falklands War, on April 2. She has accused David Cameron of maintaining a "colonial enclave"...

    Lieutenant General John Allen told the Senate Armed Services Committee today that the Afghanistan decision President Obama announced last week was not among the range of options the military provided to the commander in chief. Allen’s testimony directly contradicts claims from senior Obama administration officials from a background briefing before the president’s announcement. In response to questioning from Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Allen testified that Obama’s decision on the pace and size of Afghanistan withdrawals was “a more aggressive option than that which was presented.” Graham pressed him. “My question is: Was that a option?” Allen: “It was not.” Allen's...
  • Obama: A lot of the 'fuss' over Libya is politics

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama on Wednesday dismissed the congressional criticism of his decision to wage war against Libya as political and argued that any sign of support from Washington for strongman Moammar Gadhafi makes no sense. Pushing back against Republicans and Democrats, Obama defended his decision to order U.S. military action more than three months ago and insisted he had not violated the 1973 War Powers Resolution, which requires congressional authorization within 60 days of the first military strikes. The president claims Americans supporting the NATO-led operation are not engaged in full-blown hostilities, making congressional consent unnecessary.

    President Obama is in deep water, well over his head, in the misbegotten Libya adventure into which he dragged America. His public statements reveal the degree of the debacle.On the 18th of March 2011, ABC News reported: President Obama told a bi-partisan group of members of Congress today that he expects the U.S. would be actively involved in any military action against Libya for "days, not weeks" after which he said the U.S. would take more of a supporting role. Later in the same week in Brazil per MSNBC: He portrayed the relatively limited U.S. role as a cost-saving measure...

    Anniversaries are normally festive occasions. But the general mood at the 20th annual School of the Americas (SOA) Watch protest at Fort Benning, Georgia was closer to a death knell than a milestone. It used to be a significant event of the Catholic Left. At its height a few years ago, more than 15,000 gathered to protest the School of the Americas, now renamed the Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation (WHINSEC).The event still attracts a broad cross-section of leftist, dissident Catholic groups and causes, from drug legalization, abortion, and homosexual “marriage” to Liberation Theology and women’s ordination. However, the...

    FORT HOOD, Texas — A pregnant soldier shot during a rampage at a Texas Army post last year cried out, "My baby! My baby!" as others crawled under desks, dodged bullets that pierced walls and rushed to help their bleeding comrades, a military court heard Monday. A soldier had just told Spc. Jonathan Sims that she was expecting a baby and was preparing to go home, when the first volley of gunfire rang out Nov. 5 in a Fort Hood building where soldiers get medical tests before and after deploying.

    FORT HOOD, Texas – A soldier who recorded the terror of last year's deadly shooting rampage in Fort Hood using his cell phone was ordered by an officer to delete both videos, a military court heard Friday. Under cross examination, Pfc. Lance Aviles told an Article 32 hearing that his noncommissioned officer ordered him to destroy the two videos on Nov. 5, the same day that a gunman unleashed a volley of bullets inside a processing center at the Texas Army post. The footage could have been vital evidence at the military hearing to decide if Maj. Nidal Hasan should...

    I want to see the whole thing. Every American should demand to see the whole damned thing. And then you need to demand to know the names of every higher-ups in the military and the government who read or saw this thing and did nothing about it. I’m talking about the chilling slide presentation that Fort Hood jihadist Nidal Hasan gave at Walter Reed Hospital while a senior-year psych resident in June 2007. The Washington Post publishes details of the slide presentation, though not the original document itself. [Update: Good! WaPo publishes the full slide presentation here.] Goodbye, “Do no...

    EDGARTOWN - Another Sunday, another missed opportunity for President Obama to prove to America he’s not a Muslim. But instead of attending church services at one of the dozens and dozens of quaint, island Christian churches yesterday morning, the commander in chief hit Our Lady of the Fairways, aka the Vineyard Golf Club, yet again, to play 18. -snip- The president’s handlers have said Obama doesn’t attend services regularly because he doesn’t want to be “hugely disruptive to congregations.” This is apparently not an issue on the golf course.

    Being an American is not a matter of blood or birth, it’s a matter of faith. -Barack Obama American citizenship, according to the President, is merely a matter of “faith”. We can do away with that cumbersome birthright and documentation foolishness. As asinine as his comment was, there is little ambiguity–a mere wave of Obama’s magical Wand of Faith makes us all “Americans”. At least for the purposes of voter registration. This kind if meaningless twaddle is meant to desensitize the masses to the very real possibility of an executive order granting amnesty to illegal aliens. On its face, the...

The Turkish-Hamas flotilla two weeks ago precipitated a number of dangerous developments. Rather than attend to all of them, Israel’s leadership is devoting itself almost exclusively to contending with the least dangerous among them while ignoring the emerging threats with the potential to lead us to great calamities. Since the Navy’s lethal takeover of the Mavi Marmara, Israel has been stood before an international diplomatic firing squad led by...

    Eric Holder today admitted that the Taliban was behind the attempted bombing in Times Square by Faisal Shahzad. The Political Punch reported: In his first Sunday morning interview, Attorney General Eric Holder revealed that the Pakistani Taliban was behind Faisal Shahzad’s attempted bombing of Times Square last week. “We’ve now developed evidence that shows that the Pakistani Taliban was behind the attack,” Holder said on “This Week.” “We know that they helped facilitate it. We know that they probably helped finance it. And that he was working at their direction.” Of course Holder was not asked why Faisal Shahzad was...

    The Times Square bomber has direct ties to the Fort Hood massacre--the terrorist attack on U.S. soil which killed American servicemen and women and which the Pentagon refuses to acknowledge as a terrorist attack by Muslim extremists. In a new revelation yesterday, it turns out that the perpetrator of the failed Times Square attack had the very same Muslim imam as Major Hasan, the Fort Hood jihadist. The imam is the infamous Anwar al-Awlaki who served as a spiritual adviser to at least 3 of the hijackers who attacked the United States on 9/11. This is the same imam who...

    The mainstream media was dealt a devastating blow yesterday with the news that Times Square car bomber, Faisal Shahzad was not, as most of the fossilizing media had feverishly hoped, linked to the Tea Party movement. NYC mayor Michael Bloomberg hypothesized the bomber was expressing opposition to ObamaCare. Had he been right, capturing the terrorist would have been a daunting task indeed as two thirds of population hates ObamaCare. State controlled media fixates on the crudeness of the bomb— “experts” obsess over the bomber’s lack of “trade craft.” Shahzad obviously was not an adequately trained member of al Qaeda Local...
