    Commentary ^ | 09.15.2012 | Michael Rubin
    @mrubin1971Two news stories from recent weeks, if true, should raise a red flag in the United States that Iran is preparing to use Hezbollah to strike at U.S. interests in Latin America, if not in the United States itself.First, this story from the Lebanese news portal Naharnet and sourced in part to Israeli radio. The Naharnet story was taken down shortly after it appeared: Hezbollah is using a training base established by Iran in northern Nicaragua near the border with Honduras, the Israeli radio reported on Thursday [September 6]. “The area is cordoned off and there are around 30 members...

    When Jihad Came to America by Andrew C. McCarthy On May 2 and 3, 1990, the U.S. embassy in Cairo alerted its counterpart in Khartoum that Egypt’s “leading radical,” Omar Abdel Rahman, was on his way to Sudan. Warning that his ultimate plan might be to seek exile in the United States, the Cairo embassy asked its colleagues to pass along any information they might learn about his activities on Sudanese soil. What did U.S. officials already know about Abdel Rahman in 1990? As the 9/11 Commission would later determine, they knew that he had been arrested repeatedly in Egypt...

    From his hospital bed in Birmingham, Ala., Mike Vanderboegh of Sipsey Street Irregulars has obtained a copy of the Department of Justice Report of Investigation of the incident where an ATF agent let a surveilled suspect with prior arrests go, after giving him a $10 bill with her phone number written on it in exchange for his pledge that he’d lead her to bigger fish. “During the inspection, a Border Patrol Agent assisting the CBPOs [Customs and Border Protection Officers] performed Treasury Enforcement Communication Systems (TECS) subject queries on the subjects which disclosed CELlS-ACOSTA was under investigation for firearms trafficking,”...

    “Police records show the chief target of Operation Fast and Furious, a man pursued by ATF agents for 18 months, was actually arrested twice in 2010 for gun and drug violations, but released,” William La Jeunesse of Fox News reported yesterday, corroborating and adding new details regarding the arrest report posted in Gun Rights Examiner. Left unsaid in that column is what happened to the suspects as a result of that bust. La Jeunesse solves that mystery: The case was sent to prosecutors but never filed. The Maricopa County Attorney's Office said it sent the case back to police for...

    Documents released Thursday show that federal agents appeared to have probable cause to arrest the biggest buyer of assault weapons in the Fast and Furious operation -- eight months before Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry's death ended the scandal-ridden program. Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., and Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, have demanded Attorney General Eric Holder provide a briefing as to why ringleader Manuel Celis Acosta was not arrested earlier given repeated evidence that he was running guns.

    SNIPPET - quote: Dissemination *_is_* collection I always get a kick out of people who tell me I give away intelligence for free. What I do is watch how information moves. Keep in mind that the subject covered on this site are pretty darn esoteric by most standards. What kind of people, for example, even know who Oussama Salhab is? Answers include: Oussama Salhab, his family, friends, associates in and out of Hizballah, people he does business with, spies of various nations, etc. Yep. The barn is free, and so is the food.

    On Monday’s American Morning, CNN’s Jim Acosta rehashed a three-month-old report from the left-wing Southern Poverty Law Center about the apparent rise in militia activity in the U.S., and extensively featured a militia from Michigan whose members purportedly “could not specify which of their constitutional rights are being peeled away.” Acosta didn’t use any specific ideological labels to classify the militias during his report, which aired just before the bottom of the 7 am Eastern hour, but it was clear that the featured militia, the Southeast Michigan Volunteer Militia, held right-of-center views, as its members expressed concern about gun rights,...

    CNN’s Jim Acosta claimed that Rush Limbaugh’s website “compares the [ObamaCare] reform supporters to Nazis” during a report on Tuesday’s American Morning. The website actually draws a comparison between the DNC’s “Organizing for Health Care” logo and the Nazis’ Parteiadler (Party Eagle) symbol. Acosta also claimed that conservatives “falsely compared” ObamaCare to the Canadian health system. ...[T]he CNN correspondent made his claim about Limbaugh’s website: “Democrats charge the people shouting health care questions at members of Congress these days are being encouraged by the likes of Rush Limbaugh, whose website compares the reform supporters to Nazis.” As Acosta read this...

    Now that Congress has recessed, and since the conventions aren’t for a couple of weeks, Thursday’s The Situation Room turned back to the "hot" issue of what many liberals are calling on congressional Democrats to do: arrest and lock-up Karl Rove for his failure to testify on the issue of the firing of U.S. attorneys in late 2006. CNN correspondent Jim Acosta, as part of a report on this possible move by the Democrats, conducted a search for the supposed jail inside the U.S. Capitol. He also addressed the little-used power of the legislature to arrest and try government officials...

    July 8, 2003, 11:00 a.m. By Jim Boulet Jr. Two Hispanic men of achievement have been suggested for high office by the Bush administration. You have undoubtedly heard of Miguel Estrada, a Bush judicial nominee who is the victim of a filibuster by Senate Democrats. You may soon hear of R. Alexander Acosta, whose prospective nomination as assistant attorney general for civil rights has provoked praise from the same foes of official English who oppose Estrada. The National Council of La Raza (NCLR), while tepid regarding the Estrada nomination, is red hot in its support for Acosta because: During his...

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Bush plans to nominate lawyer Rene Acosta to be the first Hispanic in the Justice Department's top civil rights post, the White House announced Friday. Acosta will replace Ralph Boyd, who is returning to private legal practice, Justice Department officials said. Acosta, a native of Miami, is currently a member of the National Labor Relations Board. Prior to that, he served on Bush's transition team and was later the main deputy in Justice's Civil Rights Division.
