  • DoD renames “unlawful combatants” in detainee manual to … ("Unprivileged Belligerents")

    In fact, captured terrorists went out of style a long time ago, so that’s not the actual change. Until recently — like, say, two weeks ago — the Department of Defense used the term unlawful combatant as the label for terrorists captured by American military and intelligence forces as a way to distinguish them from uniformed soldiers of a recognized state authority in a straight-up fight. Their new manual dispenses with that term, the Federation of American Scientists noticed today (via Steven Aftergood and Olivier Knox): When it comes to Department of Defense doctrine on military treatment of detained persons,...

    Politicians react to terrorism much as parents might respond when their lisping tiny offspring come home from sex-ed classes and ask them to explain what lesbians do. They panic. They have no idea what to say and they are terrified of committing themselves, righly suspecting that their answers will be stored up and embarrassingly remembered... But they have to pretend to know..... I have watched this for years... But last week they outdid themselves, churning out gallons of swirling hogwash. The most ridiculous of all was (as usual) the comically unqualified Education Secretary Nicky Morgan......... . How could teachers spot...

    On Wednesday night, the Los Angeles Police Department announced it would be on high alert for the July 4th weekend. As local ABC 7 reporter Leanne Suter notes, “There are no credible or specific threats, but there is serious concern of a potential homegrown attack.” So nothing “credible” or “specific” — just “serious concern” about “potential” attacks. Sure, maintaining alertness during periods of vulnerability can be a good thing, but the nonexistence of evidence is concerning, especially when you consider what Deputy Chief Michael Downing said: “The threat stream is very high. In fact, we don’t think it’s been this...

    Happy 4th! Hugh Hewitt posed a question to his listeners this past week, after interviewing Mike Pompeo (sp.?) about terrorism concerns over the holiday. Pompeo said that there was heightened concern that attacks could occur in the US over the July 4 holiday. Hugh's question was: Does this change your plans for the holiday weekend? One would think that the most common answer is: 'I'm concerned and plan to avoid public celebrations.' It had the opposite effect on me. My wife was mildly surprised when I said we should go to a local fireworks display last night. (I'm not usually...

Nobody knows who this person is or why they did it, but since that time the FBI has revealed that it was not an isolated incident. They’ve been investigating 10 other recent attacks on the internet infrastructure of California, and they seem to be deeply troubled by the vulnerability of these cables. ........................ The article goes on to compare these incidents to similar attacks that happened in Arizona last year, as well as California in 2009. However, they may be missing the bigger picture....

    The Republican Party, broadly speaking, is comprised of many factions that are often at odds with one another. Prominent examples are the battles between the grassroots and the national party establishment and between defense hawks and non-interventionists. Perhaps fiercer than any of these fights is the long-standing conflict between social conservatives and libertarians. But when the Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage last month, they created an opening for a wedding between these two groups, which could benefit the Republican Party ahead of the 2016 election. To be clear, libertarians come in many stripes. There are those who reject the political...

    Hillary Clinton withheld Benghazi-related emails from the State Department that detailed her knowledge of the scramble for oil contracts in Libya and the shortcomings of the NATO-led military intervention for which she advocated. Clinton removed specific portions of other emails she sent to State, suggesting the messages were screened closely enough to determine which paragraphs were unfit to be seen by the public. For example, one email Clinton kept from the State Department indicates Libyan leaders were "well aware" of which "major oil companies and international banks" supported them during the rebellion, information they would "factor into decisions" about about...

    Tunisian student Seifeddine Rezgui opened fire on a tourist beach leaving at least 38 people dead. But the people who knew him told the BBC he was polite, never swore, never fought and liked breakdancing. In the midday sun, Seifeddine Rezgui pulled a Kalashnikov from a parasol and opened fire on the beach, sending holidaymakers fleeing for their lives. He threw explosives at the pool area before continuing inside the Imperial Marhaba hotel. Rezgui was not previously known to the security services. But Islamic State (IS), which said it was behind the attack, referred to him by a nom de...

While it is not yet known whether the attacks were linked, they have left officials in numerous countries concerned about how to keep their citizens safe.

The official suggested President Obama has limited his involvement in the day-to-day talks as negotiators rush to complete a final agreement. “We have left the difficult work of the nuclear negotiations to our team on the ground in Vienna,” the official said. An Iranian newspaper reported Monday that Obama sent a private message to Iran’s senior leaders...

    Under the dictionary definition of terrorism, Dylann Roof is a terrorist, no question about it. He became a terrorist because he saw that in the material world of politics, it is violence and the threat of violence — not mere moral suasion and rational argument — that most often bring about radical change. To understand this fact is in not to excuse nor endorse what Roof did in any way. His sickening act was so heinous as to be incomprehensible. Nonetheless, a realistic apprehension of such a terrorist’s motives and method of operation is necessary, especially for those who seek...

The two Iran-backed groups, Kata’ib Hezbollah and Asaib al-Haq (“League of the Righteous”), are at the heart of the Popular Mobilization Forces, set up last year to help Iraq’s Shi’ite-led government fight the Sunni jihadists of ISIS.

    There is already a rush to call Dylann Roof’s murder of nine black churchgoers in Charleston an “act of domestic terrorism.” This is a deliberate political strategy, intended by its ultra-liberal authors to transform this terrible tragedy into an indictment of American conservatism. “Terrorism” is a slippery term to define. Under U.S. law, terrorism is defined as "the unlawful use of force and violence against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives.” This is a perfectly good legal definition for the lawyers, but it...

But the attacks of September 11, 2001, hit the U.S. and hurt it, and put us into a war that, contrary to the apparent belief of the current administration, continues today.Everyone who flies anywhere now feels the effects, as they go through the TSA screening...

    Top terrorist in Yemen now heads 'steadfastly to God' . . . or somewhere. Drone strike kills Al Qaeda's No 2 in commandIt seems like we get these number two guys a lot, but in fairness, we did get that number one guy some time back. Even so, the more dead Al Qaeda the better. So nice job, America, and no apologies for the use of the drone. The objective of war is not to die for your country, as Gen. Patton is rumored to have said. It’s to make the other poor dumb bastard die for his - not...

    Amidst the frenzy about he-shes, pool parties and white “blacks,” some truly deserving news has slipped by relatively unnoticed. And given how damning it is, you have to imagine the Obama administration privately chuckling at how distraction keeps us dull to the bloody and dangerous chess game it’s playing in the Mideast. For those who’ve been aghast and outraged at Obama’s seemingly inexplicable lack of strategy against ISIS, it all becomes clear now — just as we suspected and feared. Now. We. Know. Thanks to newly-declassified documents from the Department of Defense (DOD) and the Department of State released to...

    South Asian kids raised in the West are interested in sex and sports like everyone else. But immigrant parents who never adjusted are driving those kids into the arms of killers. LONDON -- A generation of domineering South Asian dads are being blamed for exacerbating the epidemic of young sexually frustrated kids in the West skipping town to go and fight for the so-called Islamic State. After two years spent with dozens of convicted terrorists, repentant Islamists and a former fighter known as the Godfather of British Jihad, an Emmy award-winning documentary maker says there was a common theme running...

    Unbelievable: SHADY Nigerian official gave MILLIONS to Clinton Foundation while Hillary COVERED for BOKO HARAM The Hillary scandals are getting so bad that it really does seem like we’re making them up, but we’re not. The latest is an attempt to solve the mystery behind why the government was so late to designating Boko Haram a “terrorist organization.” Unbelievably, it might have to do with a million dollar donor to the Clinton Foundation and his possible terrorist ties: A conservative group is suing the State Department in an effort to find out whether the agency’s refusal to place Boko Haram...

    First, the good news: It turns out President Obama was right. Al-Qaida is being destroyed. One could even say he deserves some credit for this happy turn of events. Which brings us to the bad news: Al-Qaida is dying out because it's being replaced by something far worse. According to a fascinating report in the Guardian newspaper, two of Al-Qaida's leading clerics say that the Islamic State has all but destroyed its parent organization. Basically, people in the market for Jihad think the Islamic State offers the best product on the market. It's ironic. For a decade, terror analysts...

    Although Senator Ted Cruz is generally seen as a guy who’s mostly into domestic policies, he proved with an op-ed for Time that he’s very well aware of what’s happening in the world. In his piece, Cruz explains that Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s defeat in the elections on Sunday paves the way towards a better relationship between the U.S. and Turkey — at least with regards to the war on terror: "This is good news for Turkey, and it should be good news for the United States as well. Turkey has been a long-standing friend to our nation, and...

    Islam "has begotten a bloodthirsty ideology that is determined to destroy the principles of liberty and humanity and basic decency," ex-Muslim and activist Ayaan Hirsi Ali said June 3 at the John F. Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. Hirsi Ali knows what she's talking about. Born in Mogadishu, Somalia, she was raised Muslim. She spent her childhood and young adulthood in Africa and Saudi Arabia. She fled as a refugee to the Netherlands in 1992, where she earned a political science degree and was elected to the Dutch House of Representatives. After the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, Hirsi...

    Parenthetically, the idea of an “antiterror” expert should itself draw our ire, given that terror is a tactic, not the name of an ideologically-driven enemy. After all, during the Second World War we didn’t call upon anti-Blitzkrieg experts to define our enemies. We understood and were able to articulate that we were at war with a foe, not a fighting method. Meanwhile, today there is nary a mention of Islamic religious tenets like jihad, abrogation and taqqiya, nor a discussion of Islam’s ultimate goal to create a global Ummah under which all submit to Shariah law. This is not an...
