He stated that next week something was coming (info, publication) that was going to blow things out of the water. He mentioned we should be on DEFCON1 now and then mentioned the MH370 incident. He was adamant and seemed worried! Sorry I could not make out everything he said.

I recall video of much rejoicing from the Islamic nations over this attack. There was much celebration and dancing in the streets. So, forward to what we have today and we are witness to a rolling holocaust in some of those countries where the citizens rejoiced at our suffering. The face of terror now looks at the citizens of Lebanon, Jordan, Syria, Iraq, and Saudi Arabia, and the rest of the nations of the Mideast. My questions...

The Holmes Beach, Florida 911 operator repeatedly insisted that Logan “put down the gun.” This seemingly counter intuitive advice was labeled “standard protocol” by Holmes Beach Police Captain Abbie Safer. “Our first priority must be to insure the safety of our officers. Ideally, only the police would have guns. Failing that it is our presumption that anyone else with a gun is a perp deadly force will be deployed.” “If Ms. Logan is armed when the police arrive she could get shot,” Safer...

A neighbor called 911, noting that he happened upon Markel’s car because he’d been worried about a recent string of break-ins....

In “American Atheists v. Port Authority of New Jersey and New York” the group asserted that the artifact's positioning in the museum towered "over any other symbols in the vicinity, expressing Christian primacy." It charged that the Latin cross's dominance violated the First Amendment Establishment Clause and the 14th Amendment Equal Protection Clause of the United States Constitution.

    The catalog of the errors and failures of the administration of President George W. Bush is large and various. In finance, it began with the modifications to the Community Reinvestment Act in 1993-95, which we now know had the effect of encouraging banks, along with the quasi-governmental Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, to allow “innovative” mortgages that encouraged people to buy homes they could no longer afford when an economic downturn came. The effect of this was to encourage higher-risk lending, which led to “securitization” of the loans to spread risks. This securitization was a major contributor to the financial...

    Past the towering tridents that survived the World Trade Center collapse, adjacent to a gallery with photographs of the 19 hijackers, a brief film at the soon-to-open National September 11 Memorial Museum will seek to explain to visitors the historical roots of the attacks. The film, “The Rise of Al Qaeda,” refers to the terrorists as Islamists who viewed their mission as a jihad. The NBC News anchor Brian Williams, who narrates the film, speaks over images of terrorist training camps and Qaeda attacks spanning decades. Interspersed with his voice are explanations of the ideology of the terrorists, rendered in...

    A camp on the Libyan coastline meant to train terror-hunters has instead become a haven for terrorists and al Qaeda. A key jihadist leader and longtime member of al Qaeda has taken control of a secretive training facility set up by U.S. special operations forces on the Libyan coastline to help hunt down Islamic militants... In the summer of 2012, American Green Berets began refurbishing a Libyan military base 27 kilometers west of Tripoli in order to hone the skills of Libya’s first Western-trained special operations counter-terrorism fighters. Less than two years later, that training camp is now being used...

    An Egyptian cleric defended the Sept. 11 attacks in a broadcast interview, saying it left Muslims and non-Muslims around the world happy, according to a tape played for the jury at his terrorism trial on Monday. Mustafa Kamel Mustafa could be heard casually speaking of the attacks in the undated interview with a Canadian broadcaster, even equating what al-Qaida did to the hero in American movies. “Everybody was happy when the planes hit the World Trade Center,” Mustafa said in the interview. “Anybody who tell you he was not happy, they are hypocrites.” …

    I was deejaying at a restaurant when Judith came to meet me for the first time. We were finally able to put faces to the voices we had been hearing on the radio, and I asked her out on our first date. She met me at the radio station and we drove to IHOP, where we laughed and talked all night. I loved everything about her, but especially her smile. I knew at that point that I didn’t want any other woman; she was it for me. We dated for a while and then I moved in with her. We...

    Republicans, I come in peace.Until very recently, Rand Paul’s project of insinuating himself comfortably within the Republican Party, and positioning himself as a plausible presidential nominee, had gone along with remarkable ease. Yes, the author of his campaign book turned out to be an unreconstructed neo-Confederate. That was a speed bump. (Who among us has not entrusted the explication of his worldview to a man who has cheered on the assassination of President Lincoln?) Paul had staged a masterful piece of political theater with his marathon Senate speech denouncing the Obama administration’s drone policy. He has assembled a top-tier campaign...

    On March 16, Teri Bice awoke to the sound of someone trying to break down the door of her home in New Orleans. She did what most Americans would do: dial 911.   One big problem,  There was no answer at the other end.   From wwltv.com: She documented her calls for help: two to 911; two to the NOPD's non-emergency line; and one to NOPD's Second District. The final call was answered and Bice confirms an officer showed up two hours after the attempted home invasion. The problem appears to be a lack of operators for the 911 system, and...
