    Top Hillary Clinton aides were upset a Muslim man was publicly named as the shooter in a 2015 massacre that left 14 people dead, and a longtime Clinton confidant even expressed regret that the terrorist wasn’t a white man, according to purported emails released by WikiLeaks on Sunday. The emails were part of a trove of messages stolen from the gmail account of Clinton campaign chair John Podesta, who has had a long association with the Democratic presidential nominee and her husband, former President Bill Clinton. The email chain began on Dec. 2, when digital operative Matt Ortega forwarded a...

    Please let's not jump to any conclusions. Conclusion jumping must be avoided in the cases of Muslims killing people. Or rather we must jump to any and every other possible conclusion. This particular Muslim was homicidally suicidal... but in a non-Islamic way. A 28-year-old Jordanian Muslim who who was studying to become a pilot died after crashing a small plane Tuesday afternoon in Connecticut, and the instructor pilot who survived the crash said it was intentional.

Investigating his motive? […] Nobody was injured and police nabbed him almost immediately. But to dither over motive at a time when terror attacks are sweeping across the globe does nothing to protect the innocent. After all, it seems pretty straightforward, with the call of “Allahu Akbar” followed quickly by an act of attempted murder that radical Islamism might have played a role, right? Right....

    The reason our authorities don't take pre-emptive action against Islamic terror -- even after solid intelligence warnings.Why does the Obama administration keep failing to thwart Muslim terrorist attacks in the U.S. after receiving apparently good intelligence warning of those attacks? It turns out that Americans keep turning in budding Muslim terrorists to the Obama administration and the administration keeps on doing nothing. For example, the alleged mastermind of the weekend pressure-cooker bombing in New York City was turned in by his own father but the Federal Bureau of Investigation failed to do much of anything about him. These intelligence failures...
