    As U.S. Africa Command waited for any order to rescue Americans on Sept. 11 at the besieged consulate and CIA annex in Benghazi, Libya, it was missing a key unit that the Pentagon gives every regional four-star commander — an emergency strike force. The new command’s lack of such a unit is another piece in the unfolding Benghazi timeline that shows an overriding theme: As radical Islamic extremism swelled in the chaotic coastal city, U.S. security assets in Libya diminished. From the State Department’s denial of diplomats’ requests for more security in Libya to Obama administration officials repeatedly saying the...

    The biggest upset in MMA history happened tonight. Fabricio Werdum trapped Fedor Emelianenko in an arm bar and forced the tap in the first round. The world's #1 heavyweight Fedor Emelianenko put his reputation, but no title belt, on the line against Brazilian jiu jitsu ace Fabricio Werdum at Strikeforce: Fedor vs Werdum. Going into the bout, a great deal of controversy swirled about whether or not Fedor, riding a ten year undefeated streak, remains the undisputed beat heavyweight in the game with the UFC's Brock Lesnar, Shane Carwin, Junior Dos Santos and Cain Velasquez rising fast. Fedor appeared unphased...

    Former Heisman Trophy winner Herschel Walker has signed an agreement with Strikeforce, FanHouse has learned. The former NFL running back will immediately enter an 8-to-12 week training camp with the American Kickboxing Academy in San Jose, Calif. Strikeforce director of communications Mike Afromowitz said it's too early to speculate when the 47-year-old will make his debut with the organization but it will probably be sometime in 2010. "This isn't a publicity stunt or a gimmick," Afromowitz said. "Herschel Walker has tremendous athleticism, and he has always shown that off the gridiron. He's accomplished a lot in his life and...
  • Canada: Poor Boy of NATO

    Canada has welcomed the recent US proposal to create a NATO rapid reaction force, but critics claim the nation's shrinking defence budget will simply not stretch far enough to contribute. The NATO strike force concept was unveiled by the US Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld at last month's meeting of NATO defence ministers in Warsaw. He proposed a body of 20,000 troops on call for quick deployment anywhere in the world. In Canada's case, many believe that after years of defence spending cuts, the nation has little left to offer such a force. At September's meeting of NATO ministers in Warsaw,...
