    The gunmen cut a perimeter fence and penetrated the battalion headquarters in Tangdhar in northern Kashmir, the Himalayan region at the heart of a longstanding dispute between nuclear-armed India and Pakistan. "It is seems to be a well planned attack," said the army officer, who asked not to be identified because he is not authorised to speak on the record. Bodies of the three gunmen and of one unidentified individual, believed to have worked on the base, were recovered, the officer added.He said the attackers armed with AK-47s had taken up positions in the officers' mess and blown up a...

    President Obama didn’t require Iranian leaders to sign the nuclear deal that his team negotiated with the regime, and the deal is not “legally binding,” his administration acknowledged in a letter to Representative Mike Pompeo (R., Kan.) obtained by National Review. “The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) is not a treaty or an executive agreement, and is not a signed document,” wrote Julia Frifield, the State Department assistant secretary for legislative affairs, in the November 19 letter.

    Ben Rhodes, US President Barack Obama's deputy national security advisor, discusses the similarities between the Paris attacks and 9/11, the security risk posed by the refugee crisis and why the US won't send ground troops to Syria. [...] "The President believes that the lesson we have to take away from the last decade is that ground invasions and occupations of countries in the Middle East are not the most effective way of addressing terrorism, because they are costly and difficult to sustain, but also because you are going to need a mixture of anti-terrorism efforts and local political stability and...

    In a move dubbed "surreal" by a leading UN watchdog, and as a campaign of daily Palestinian terrorist attacks continues to target Israelis, the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday adopted six resolutions - all of which bar none condemned Israel. Not a single mention was made of the Palestinian attacks, which have left 22 Israelis dead and hundreds wounded, nor did any other countries - even serial human rights violators such as Saudi Arabia, Iran, Russia and others - receive any of the General Assembly's attention. More disturbingly still, five of the the UNGA resolutions were sponsored by the...

    Saying U.S. counter-terrorism officials haven't uncovered any credible threat of pending attacks, President Obama urged Americans Wednesday to enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday. "Right now, we know of no specific and credible intelligence indicating a plot on the homeland," Mr. Obama said after meeting in the White House situation room with FBI Director James B. Comey, Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson and others. "We continue to do everything possible to prevent attacks at home and abroad." Mr. Obama said it's "understandable" for Americans to worry about terrorist attacks following the Nov. 13 killing spree in Paris by extremists of the Islamic...

    Fans of mindless authoritarianism are having a pretty good month. The New York Times reports: Congressional Democrats are trying to build support for an effort to bar gun purchases by terror suspects, hoping to take advantage of the same public anxieties about security that gave Republicans a ringing House victory. The Democratic push seems likely to fall victim to opposition from the National Rifle Association and congressional gun-rights backers, chiefly Republicans, who have smothered firearms curbs for years. If the Republicans who control Congress block votes on the proposal, Democrats hope to profit politically by winning sympathy from angry voters....

    What might have happened if a few of the 1,500 concert attendees in Paris' Bataclan theater had guns? The terrorists had time to kill, reload and kill again. The police unit didn't come for more than a half hour. If a few people in the theater were armed, might they have killed the killers? We'll never know. France's guns laws say you may not carry a gun unless police certify that you are "exposed to exceptional risks of harm" to your life. Few people even bother to apply. Fortunately, in America, laws in every state now allow adults to carry...

The delay follows criticisms that Ottawa was moving too fast amid security concerns in the aftermath of deadly attacks in Paris.

    President Obama said the shoot-down "points to an ongoing problem with the Russian operations" in Syria, including attacks against moderate Syrian opposition groups near the Turkish border. If Russia were going after the Islamic State instead, Mr. Obama said, such mistakes "are less likely to occur." He said it’s important for Turkish and Russian officials to communicate and to "discourage any kind of escalation." French President Francois Hollande called the incident "a serious one." "We must prevent an escalation," he said. Mr. Obama said the U.S. is still gathering facts of the shoot-down, but said Turkey "has a right to...

Williams: How do you think this incident will affect Turkish-Russian relations? Henri Barkey: Until recently, the Turks and the Russians had succeeded in compartmentalizing their differences over Syria. Because they're on opposite sides: Since the beginning of the Syrian civil war, the Turks have tried to do everything they could to overthrow Assad, and Russia has done everything they could to keep Assad in power. But it didn't affect the relationship between [Turkish President Recep...

    There's a difference between a lie and an honest mistake. However slight, it's a crucial distinction in politics, and especially in the campaign of Donald Trump.On Saturday, the real-estate magnate insisted that after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, he watched news footage of "thousands of thousands of people" celebrating in northern New Jersey -- "where you have large Arab populations," in his words.Journalists have searched news archives for any evidence of such footage and turned up empty handed. Public officials and law enforcement in New Jersey say Trump's account is utterly false.But Trump's assertion might not be a...

    Tuesday at a press conference with French President Francois Hollande, President Barack Obama declared it “our humanitarian duty” to help out with refugees fleeing the Middle East. Obama said, “Americans will not be terrorized. I say all this because another part of being vigilant, another part of defeating terrorists like ISIL is upholding the rights and freedoms that define our two great republics. That includes freedom of religion.
