  • Soccer For Jihadists, Higher Premiums For Troops

    Priorities: Veterans of the war on terror will be rewarded with higher insurance premiums that favored unions are exempt from. Obama-Care must be served, after all, and that soccer field for Gitmo detainees must be paid for. For the soldiers who served in Iraq and Afghanistan and lost their legs from mines and improvised explosive devices, it is bitterly ironic news that detainees at Guantanamo, who helped maim them, will now be kicking around soccer balls at a new $750,000 field that is half the size of an American football field. This comes as the military is bearing the brunt...

    I turn my laser on Obama's metastasizing foreign policy failure in my column this week at WND: Stop apologizing and start carpet-bombing! Exclusive: Pamela Geller blasts Obama for groveling to Islamic supremacists over Quran We apologize, they kill. We apologize again, and they kill some more. A Quran is burned in Afghanistan, a Quran that was used to transmit plots against our troops, and Obama is apologizing. And our generals are apologizing. And the Pentagon is apologizing. America, where are you on this? Obama apologizes, they burn him in effigy. Brilliant, Obama, brilliant. And the band plays on. On Saturday,...

    Our interventions follow certain patterns. Do Syria and Iran fit them? In the past 40 years, the United States has intervened to go after autocrats in Afghanistan, Grenada, Haiti, Iraq, Libya, Panama, Somalia, and Serbia. We have attacked by air, by land, and by a combination of both. In the post-Vietnam, post–Cold War era, are there any rules to guide us about any action envisioned against Syria or Iran — patterns known equally to our enemies? 1. The target cannot have nuclear weapons. Strongmen in Pakistan and North Korea by virtue of their nukes are exempt from American reaction (unlike...

    Was Abdel Baset al-Megrahi wrongly convicted of being responsible for the 1988 Lockerbie bombing? Wednesday, December 21, 1988 was the longest night of the year, the night of the winter solstice. At 6.30pm that evening Pan Am Flight 103 took off from London Heathrow airport en route to JFK New York. On board Clipper Maid of the Skies, as it was called, were 16 crew members and 243 passengers, many of whom were carrying Christmas gifts in their luggage for family and friends. But also in the baggage hold was a brown Samsonite suitcase, packed with new clothes and a...

    Al Manar ^ | Local Editor
    Egypt arrested on Wednesday senior al-Qaeda operative, Seif al-Adel, at Cairo airport. Security officials and state television reported the arrest, but they did not say why the Egyptian militant flew to Cairo. Adel was reported to have briefly taken over the militant network's leadership after Osama bin Laden's death. He is also on the FBI's most wanted list with a reward of up to $5 million dollars for his capture. An airport official said Seif al-Adel, also known as Muhamad Ibrahim Makkawi and Ibrahim Madani, arrived on an Emirates flight from Pakistan with a stop over in Dubai. Security officials...

    An article published Monday by the Guardian indicated that Saudi Arabia is “ripe for revolution” as the factors that motivated the Arab uprisings are present at the kingdom. Pointing out the presence of tens of thousands of political prisoners -most without charge- the high unemployment rate in this country oil rich country, the huge discrepancy between classes, and the royal family’s treatment to the country and people as private property, Saudi writer Saad Al-Faqih considered that like other places in the Arab world, “the expansion in communication tools has broken down barriers and deprived the Saudi regime of the secrecy...

    The killing in Kabul on Saturday of two high-ranking American military officials - a colonel and a major - serving with the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) will prompt a paradigm shift in regional security. Afghanistan surges as still America's number one "hot spot", over-shadowing Syria and Iran. If President Barack Obama thought it was time for the United States military to "pivot" toward the Asia-Pacific, it has been delusionary thinking. The Taliban retain a big say still in the upcoming campaign for Obama's re-election bid; the strategy of peace talks with the Taliban will need a close look. The...

    Gary Pruitt, President, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board of The McClatchy Company, insists the U.S. newspaper publisher “must maintain the highest standards of ethical conduct.” But how does this comport with being a “partner” of WikiLeaks, the controversial website that has just published stolen emails from the private company known as Stratfor? WikiLeaks has listed McClatchy as one of its “public partners in the investigation” of Stratfor. Another American “partner” is Rolling Stone, the rock & roll magazine. The hacker group Anonymous, which is under FBI investigation, has taken credit for the data theft. WikiLeaks founder Julian...

    Robert Spencer works out the logical questions arising from Obama's enforcement of Sharia law regarding the treatment of the quran in Afghanistan: Madness has overtaken Washington, and the world. Every day this past week has brought fresh reports of more people murdered in Afghanistan over the burning of some copies of the Qur’an at Bagram Airfield. In response, every day new apologies come from American officials. Barack Obama, Leon Panetta, the commander of NATO troops in Afghanistan, General John Allen, and others have all issued abject apologies to Afghan President Hamid Karzai, the “noble people of Afghanistan,” and everyone else...

He has emailed the 911 families asking if the photo of a billboard for a TV show offends them (see below). Does this offend you? The New York Times demands that we kiss the ring of jihadists. The New York Times, which wantonly shilled, promoted, advanced and shilled for the Ground Zero mosque (which over 80% of the families opposed).

    Kabul - A suicide car bomber killed at least nine people in an attack on a military airport in eastern Afghanistan on Monday, officials said, the latest incident of violence and protests since copies of the Koran were inadvertently burned at a NATO base last week. There was no official indication the explosion at the gates of Jalalabad airport was linked to other deadly protests and riots, although the Taliban quickly claimed responsibility for the attack as "revenge" for the Koran burning. Anti-Western fury has deepened significantly since the desecration of the Muslim holy book at the main NATO base...

    Dr. Essam Abdallah, an Egyptian liberal intellectual, in an article published last October in the leading liberal pan-Arab journal Elaph, refers to certain reports coming out of Washington: These reports reveal the depth of the below-the-surface coordination between the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), Hamas, Hezbollah, the Iranian regime and the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, Syria, Tunisia, Libya and Jordan. This bloc of regimes and organizations is now becoming the greatest Islamist radical lobby ever to penetrate and infiltrate the White House, Congress, the State Department and the main decision making centers of the US government.

    As U.S. and Israeli officials talk publicly about the prospect of a military strike against Iran's nuclear program, one fact is often overlooked: U.S. intelligence agencies don't believe Iran is actively trying to build an atomic bomb. A highly classified U.S. intelligence assessment circulated to policymakers early last year largely affirms that view, originally made in 2007. Both reports, known as national intelligence estimates, conclude that Tehran halted efforts to develop and build a nuclear warhead in 2003. The most recent report, which represents the consensus of 16 U.S. intelligence agencies, indicates that Iran is pursuing research that could put...

    The White House today defended President Obama’s decision to apologize for the recent incident of Koran burning at a U.S. airbase in Afghanistan, saying it was “wholly appropriate” given the “understandable sensitivities” to the issue. “The error was inadvertent,” Obama wrote in a letter to his Afghan counterpart Hamid Karzai, according to Karzai’s office. “I assure you that we will take the appropriate steps to avoid any recurrence, to include holding accountable those responsible.” Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich, however, said it was “an outrage” for the president to issue an apology on the same day two U.S. troops were...
