    President Obama is expected to nominate former Pentagon lawyer Jeh Johnson as the next Homeland Security secretary, ABC News has learned. --SNIP-- Johnson has called working for the Obama administration "the highlight of [his] professional life."

"I remember thinking then, 'This is a long-shot, but it will be exciting, historic, and how many times in my life will someone personally...

    In my opinion, the actions of Jesse Ventura are classless and dishonorable.  Chris Kyle is an American Hero and his wife Taya, an amazing woman.  The Kyle’s have both sacrificed for many amazing selfless causes.  Move on Ventura!Ventura claims that damages from slain ex-SEAL Chris Kyle’s “American Sniper” continue.Former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura is setting his legal sights on the widow of a former Navy SEAL he had sued for defamation.Lawyers for Ventura have asked a federal court to continue his lawsuit against Chris Kyle — who was killed in February by a young veteran he was mentoring — by...

    This video made by the U.S. Navy Seals may cost Obama his second term in office. It’s just incredible how effective this video is in convincing Americans that Obama is a very serious national traitor. Incredibly powerful video! Senior CIA, FBI, Military and many other U.S. government intelligence officials describe for the viewer how Obama has compromised U.S. national secrets and the very serious consequence of those actions. And what’s worse, he did it all for political gain so he could win a second disastrous term in office.

    WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama ordered the commando raid that killed terrorist leader Osama bin Laden after deciding the risks were outweighed by the possibility "of us finally getting our man" following a decade of frustration, he said in a Sunday broadcast interview. The helicopter raid "was the longest 40 minutes of my life," Obama told CBS' "60 Minutes," with the possible exception of when his daughter Malia became sick with meningitis as an infant.

    I just watched the news conference from the Navy right now. The US Navy had convinced the pirates to let the Bainbridge take the life boat in tow! They were using the enflatable vessel to ferry food and water to the prirates so they were used to using it at that point. They also convinced one of the pirates to board the Bainbridge and act as a go between in the negotiations. That is the one who lived. While towing the lifeboat, apparently two of the pirates we leaning head and shoulders out of the windows, and the thrid was...

    NEW YORK (CNN) -- The White House said Thursday it is taking seriously the allegations by former hostages that Iran's hardline president-elect, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, was one of their captors at the U.S. Embassy in Tehran a quarter century ago. President Bush told foreign reporters he has "no information, but obviously his involvement raises many questions." "As soon as I saw the face, it rang a lot of bells to me," Don Sharer, who served as the embassy's naval attache at the time, told CNN. "...Take 20 years off of him. He was there. He was there in the background, more...

    The top secret international commando group which tracked down Saddam Hussein is being transferred from Iraq to Afghanistan to spearhead the hunt for Osama bin Laden. Task Force 121, a 1400-strong unit drawn from the U.S. army's Delta Force, Rangers and Green Berets, U.S. navy Seals, and attached elements of British and Australian SAS and Canadian special forces, will be used as the cutting edge of an offensive aimed at netting or killing top al Qaeda fugitives. The unit, which may be renamed before deploying on the Afghan side of the frontier with Pakistan's lawless tribal lands, is moving in...
