    It is impossible to evaluate events in Russia today without understanding the mysterious series of bombings in 1999 that killed 300 civilians and created the conditions for Vladimir Putin to become Russia’s dictator for life. The bombings changed the course of Russia’s post-Soviet history. They were blamed on the Chechens. In the wake of initial success, Russia launched a new invasion of Chechnya. Putin, who had just been appointed prime minister, was put in charge of the invasion and his popularity soared. Six months later, he was elected president. On July 14, 2016, I filed a request for documents on...

    New Details: On Tuesday, some Americans remembered a lesser-known ‘9/11’ anniversary — the Sept. 11, 2012, terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, which left four Americans dead including our ambassador, Christopher Stevens. Tuesday night, former Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, went on Sean Hannity’s program to provide new details about the night after the attack, which came in two waves and lasted some 13 hours. What he told Hannity about the way President Obama and then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton treated the U.S. security contractor heroes who tried to defend American soil that night should enrage everyone who...

    Ynet Israel ^ | Nov 2016 | Ronen Bergman
    Secret KGB documents reveal just how deeply involved the Soviet Union was in the spilling of Israeli blood. The Russian spy agency provided Palestinian terror organizations with funds, training and arms, running agents like 'Krotov' - aka Mahmoud Abbas, 'Aref' - or Yasser Arafat, and 'Nationalist,' who was behind several plane hijackings long before 9/11. The genesis of the KGB’s developing ties with Palestinian terror organizations can be traced back to the end of the 1960s. The two most important KGB recruitments from the PLO during the second half of the 1970s were of people who still play a major...

    For many years now, when I’ve looked at my digital clock, I’ve seen one time more than any other–9:11. Now there are a lot of possibilities on the clock. There are twelve hours, and there are sixty minutes. I’m no math guy, but isn’t that 1 in 720? The odds of seeing 9:11 more often than any other time are pretty high, I’d say...

    Far-left Islamic activist Linda Sarsour made strong anti-Semitic remarks during a speech this month at the annual Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) convention in Houston, Texas — calling for the dehumanization of Israelis. The Algemeiner reported that Sarsour shamed Muslims for not being more politically active and said that if Muslims are not promoting the Palestinian cause then they are part of the problem, saying, "You as an American Muslim are complicit in the occupation of Palestinians, in the murder of Palestinian protesters." "So when we start debating in the Muslim community about Palestine, it tells me a lot...

    The son of a Boston police captain was sentenced Wednesday to 20 years in prison for an ISIS-inspired terrorist plot — three years after his father tipped off federal law enforcement. Alexander Ciccolo, 26, went by the name Ali Al Amriki. His father, Robert Ciccolo, noted his son’s admiration of the terrorist group and alerted the FBI. The younger Ciccolo was arrested in July 2015 after a sting operation in which he accepted firearms that were illegal due to an earlier conviction. He was also recorded discussing plans that involved filling pressure cookers with black powder, nails and ball bearings,...

Syrian government forces are said to be preparing a huge offensive on the last major rebel stronghold in the country. The UN says such a campaign could have disastrous consequences for thousands of civilians. The US State Department also warned on Monday that Washington would respond to any chemical attacks by the Syrian government or its allies..... US ambassador...

  • Defense Budget Shifts Military's Focus From Terrorism To China And Russia

    NPR ^ | Aug 2018 | David Welna
    The National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2019 was enacted this month well ahead of a still-pending budget bill. It was also the earliest date on the legislative calendar that the NDAA has been sent to a president for his signature in more than two decades. Congress matched dollar-for-dollar what the Pentagon asked for. The bill sped through Congress as the nation's military continues waging war in Afghanistan, Syria, Yemen, Iraq, Niger, Libya, Somalia and an untold number of other global hot spots. All arise from what's been the Pentagon's main post-Sept. 11 focus: fighting terrorism. But this new...

    Taos County, New Mexico (CNN)The compound was hiding in plain sight, a white smudge in the dusty green expanse of sagebrush and juniper stretching across the Colorado-New Mexico border. A few feet past a handwritten "no trespassing" sign on the ground, a box truck sat unlocked. Inside, a wooden bunk bed was propped up against the wall, surrounded by piles of dirty clothing and worn-out books. Identity documents were mixed on the floor with children's math workbooks, self-help guides and gun manuals. A dusty bulletproof vest lay nearby. It had been two weeks since law enforcement raided lot 78 in...
