  • Presidents Of A Feather: Can Clinton Save Obama?

    05/01/2012 2:15:54 PM PDT · by raptor22 · 15 replies
    Politics: The president who wagged the dog and let bin Laden get away raises millions for the president who jokes about eating one while taking credit for Osama's death. A deal for Hillary as veep, perhaps? Politics makes strange bedfellows, the cliche goes. In 2008, Hillary Clinton waged a protracted and sometimes bitter battle for the Democratic presidential nomination against a former community organizer and absentee state senator from Illinois only to wind up as President Obama's secretary of state. Husband and former President Bill Clinton even made racially tinged remarks about Obama's primary victory over Hillary in the South...

    Serving and former US Navy SEALs have slammed President Barack Obama for taking the credit for killing Osama bin Laden and accused him of using Special Forces operators as ‘ammunition’ for his re-election campaign. The SEALs spoke out to MailOnline after the Obama campaign released an ad entitled ‘One Chance’. In it President Bill Clinton is featured saying that Mr Obama took ‘the harder and the more honourable path’ in ordering that bin Laden be killed. The words ‘Which path would Mitt Romney have taken?’ are then displayed. Besides the ad, the White House is marking the first anniversary of...

    Sort of mixing my football metaphors here, but Obama made the haughty comment after the Bin Laden operation that he didn’t need to “spike the football.” Well, a change of heart came over the president and he made a web video bragging about offing the al-Qaeda chief: Fourteen million unemployed or underemployed Americans in an election year will have that effect on a president.Weekly Standard: The narrator in the ad is former President Bill Clinton.This latest ad contradicts President Obama’s own pledge after he took out bin Laden. “You know, we don’t trot out this stuff as trophies,” Obama told...

    "The war on terror is over," or so claims an unnamed senior State Department official, as reported by National Journal's Michael Hirsh in his recent article "The Post al-Qaida Era." Really? Well, if the war is over, I must have missed the peace treaty signing ceremony. I also haven't noticed a decline in incendiary rhetoric, or the disarmament -- or at least laying down of arms -- that usually accompanies the end of war. Does this mean we can do away with full-body scanners and TSA pat-downs? Those who believe the war against radical Islamists is over never really...

    This is a documentary about Islam, jihad, and CAIR. It is a rehash for most FRepeers, since we are ahead of the knowledge curve compared to the general public. It is a good educational source for those who are just now waking up to the threat of Islam. Video is from Glenn Beck TV. Posted as an FYI.

"After the operation, a helicopter will evacuate the soldiers,"...

    In the wake of the Arab Spring, the Obama administration is grappling with how to handle Islamists, radical adherents to Islam. Particularly, the issue has come to the fore in regards to Egypt, which, as Reuel Marc Gerecht notes, "is now certain" to elect "an Islamist" as its leaders the next time the Egyptian people go to the polls. But some in the Obama administration are now seeing things differently. "The war on terror is over,"a senior official in the State Department official tells the National Journal. "Now that we have killed most of al Qaida, now that people have...

    Over 1,000 protesters in the area of Dambulla, Sri Lanka, have rallied against the Masjidul Khaira mosque, which they claim did not obtain the proper planning permission. The protesters, led by Ven Inamaluwe Shri Sumanagala, included a large number of Buddhist monks, who waved the international Biddhist flag and carried placards. The issue of planning permission does not seem to be the real objection to the mosque, however. According to the Ceylon Times, Akmeemana Dayarathna Thera, one of the monks on the rally, said, “We asked them to remove the mosque as Dambulla was declared a holy city with a...

    KABUL (Reuters) - Gunmen launched multiple attacks in the Afghan capital Kabul on Sunday, assaulting Western embassies in the heavily guarded, central diplomatic area and at the parliament in the west. Taliban insurgents claimed responsibility for the assault, one of the most serious on the capital since U.S.-backed Afghan forces removed the group from power in 2001.

    French President Nicolas Sarkozy defended his economic record on Friday as a slew of opinion polls suggested his prospects of re-election were crumbling just over a week from round one of a vote where Socialist Francois Hollande is the clear frontrunner.      Four polls published in less than 24 hours showed Hollande extending his lead, with the conservative incumbent's modest gains of the past month starting to evaporate ahead of a two-round contest taking place on April 22 and May 6. A CSA poll showed Hollande winning the May 6 run-off with 57 percent of the vote. Three other polls...

    excerpt- Anything that retards Iran's nuclear progress is helpful. But even if the talks "solved" the nuclear issue—virtually inconceivable, given the measures the Iranians have taken to preserve their program—a bigger problem would remain: the Iranian regime itself. Whatever progress is made in the context of overlapping short-term interests, it will do little to change the long-term strategic problems presented by a hostile Iran. And Iran is hostile. It is one of the most underreported stories of the past decade: As we went to war in Afghanistan and Iraq, Iran went to war with us. Tehran has provided weapons to...

  • Officials from Egypt's Brotherhood at White House (Huge Story)

    White House officials held talks with representatives of the Muslim Brotherhood in Washington this week, as the Islamist group threw itself into the fray in Egypt's presidential election. The meeting on Tuesday with low-level National Security Council staff was part of a series of US efforts to broaden engagement with new and emerging political parties following Egypt's revolution last year, a US official said. The White House pointed out that Republican Senators Lindsey Graham and John McCain, and other US lawmakers and officials had also met with Brotherhood representatives in Egypt and elsewhere in recent months. "We believe that it...
  • US tightens screws on Pakistan with $10 million bounty

    04/03/2012 6:04:47 AM PDT · by nuconvert · 12 replies
    The US has offered a $10 million bounty for the Pakistani militant accused of plotting the 2008 terror attack in Mumbai, which killed 166 people, including several US citizens. The move was welcomed in India, but could anger rival Pakistan, which has been considering changes to its fraught relationship with the US. Hafiz Mohammad Saeed lives openly in Pakistan, occasionally giving speeches and appearing on talk shows, and founded the Pakistani militant group Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) in the 1980s. The US considers it a terrorist group and Pakistan officially banned LeT in 2002 under US pressure, but the group still operates...

While no one has claimed credit for disabling the sites..." SNIPPET: "The loss of information typically confuses and frustrates the readers of the Web sites. "It leaves the rank-and-file to guess which messages and which messengers are genuine al-Qaida, and provides undercover operators with new opportunities to disrupt the movement," said A.
