Last February, President Bashar al-Assad‚Äôs regime and its Shiite auxiliaries mounted a large-scale attempt to encircle Aleppo, the northern city divided between regime and rebels since 2012 and battered by the dictator‚Äôs barrel bombs. Islamist and non-Islamist mainstream rebels ‚ÄĒ to the surprise of those who have derided their performance, let alone their existence ‚ÄĒ repelled the offensive at the time.

  • Obama Admin: Congressional Crackdown on Terror Will Violate Iran Deal

    Senior Obama administration officials are expressing concern that congressional attempts to tighten laws preventing terrorists from entering the United States could violate the Iran nuclear agreement and prompt Tehran to walk away from the agreement. Congress is considering measures that would tighten the Visa Waiver Program to make it harder for potential terrorists to legally enter the United States by increasing restrictions on individuals who have travelled to countries with prominent terrorist organizations from bypassing security checks upon entering the United States.

    In an off-the-record meeting with journalists on Tuesday, Obama said that he did not watch enough cable news to fully recognize the extent of people's fears, sources with knowledge of the meeting told CNN. That characterization of Obama's remarks was included in a New York Times article, but later removed while the article was being edited for the print edition. The president's claim has drawn fierce criticism from conservatives, who see it as evidence that Obama is out of touch with national sentiment about the threat of terrorism.

    American Thinker ^ | 12/10/2015 | Amil Imani
    Many who closely follow the dueling Islamic terror narratives emanating from the White House are mystified by Mr. Obama's inability (or deliberate unwillingness) to utter the phrase "Islamic terrorists." Many are curious, too, about why he refuses to call ISIS "ISIS," steadfastly insisting instead that everybody in his administration call the terror group "ISIL." What's the difference, and why is it important? The agendas behind each diverge widely. In fact, the variance between the two is elephantine in scale. ISIS stands for the "Islamic State in Iraq and Syria," a terror group controlling a large swath of both Iraq and...

Peters, a Fox News military analyst, appeared on Stuart Varney's Fox Business program to respond to Obama's Sunday night Oval Office address on the threat of terrorism, a speech that was widely panned. Peters, a fierce critic of Obama's national security policies, was visibly angry as he blasted the speech.

    Last Thursday I heard Attorney General Loretta Lynch say regarding the San Bernardino assault, "Violence like this has no place in this country. This is not what we stand for, this is not what we do." These words so trivialized concern about terrorism they made me sick. Actually, considering the magnitude of what had happened, her words struck me as lacking human compassion - almost as if she were not even paying attention. Since then, despite the growing awareness of the significance of this terrorist attack in the United States the President has been conspicuously aloof. The terrorist attack in...

While Mr. Brennan said authorities are still trying to confirm the extent to which the Islamic State's Syria- and Iraq-based leadership played a role in Friday's deadly coordinated attacks, his remarks on the extremist group as a whole were notably tougher in tone and more alarmist than almost simultaneous comments President Obama was making at an international summit he was...

    While Toyotaís own figures show a tripling of sales of the Hilux in Iraq during 2013, US authorities are also investigating other sources from which the cars could have originated, as part of a broader effort to ďprevent Western-made goods from ending up in the hands of the terror group.Ē But the US has, in fact, knowingly exported Toyotas that could now potentially be in the terrorist groupís fleet.

    To combat Islamic militants the White House says threaten national interests, the U.S. has spent nearly $100 billion to arm and train foreign militaries across the Middle East, North Africa and South Asia, an analysis by Vocativ shows. And nearly all of them are reeling from setbacks that threaten to undermine whatís become a core component of American foreign policy in these regions. U.S. programs funding foreign fighters began flourishing in the years after 9/11 and were later bolstered by President Obama, who prefers doing this instead of deploying American troops into troubled areas.

    After the pro-Western government of China was forced to flee to the island of Taiwan in 1949, when the Communists took over mainland China, bitter recriminations in Washington led to the question: "Who lost China?" China was, of course, never ours to lose, though it might be legitimate to ask if a different American policy toward China could have led to a different outcome. In more recent years, however, Iraq was in fact ours to lose, after U.S. troops vanquished Saddam Hussein's army and took over the country. Today, we seem to be in the process of losing Iraq, if...

    The Obama administration's plan for thwarting the Islamic State, which it carefully calls ISIL, is to encourage multisectarianism in Iraq.

"What happened last year was an unwillingness of the Iraqi security forces to fight, using the equipment and training that the United States had given them," Carter told the committee. "And the reason for that was a political failure on the part of their government to keep the promise that had been made to the country to keep it a multisectarian...

The U.S. has sent hundreds of prisoners from Guantanamo to third countries but this is the first time Kazakhstan has accepted any for resettlement.

    After Navy SEALs killed Osama bin Laden in Pakistan in May 2011, top CIA officials secretly told lawmakers that information gleaned from brutal interrogations played a key role in what was one of the spy agency's greatest successes. Then-CIA Director Leon Panetta repeated that assertion in public, and it found its way into a critically acclaimed movie about the operation, "Zero Dark Thirty," which depicts a detainee offering up the identity of bin Laden's courier, Abu Ahmad al-Kuwaiti, after being tortured at a secret CIA interrogation site. As it turned out, bin Laden was living in al-Kuwaiti's walled family compound,...

    <p>Torture is repulsive. Even on the scaffold or in front of a firing squad, a man can meet death with dignity. The torturer sets out to strip his victim of dignity, to break him, to violate not only his body but also his soul. In England, torture was outlawed in 1660, and for most of the past 350 years, that seemed to be a final verdict. Torture had been a barbarous relic of the dark ages. Anyone who suggested that it might still have a role would have been laughed to scorn; no doubt he would also have been in favour of burning witches.</p>

    Unbelievable if true. He has ordered the FBI to read Islamo-terrorists ĎMiranda rightsí reserved for US citizens, so itís reasonable to conclude that he ordered his Navy Seal commandos to seek al-Qaidaís surrender first before opening fire. If thatís the case, then he made it that much more difficult for these Seals to carry out their mission.

    By/Major Garrett/CBS News/November 6, 2014, 9:23 PM Obama writes private letter to Iranian leader WASHINGTON -- U.S. officials confirm President Obama sent a letter to Iran's Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei in mid-October, as first reported in the Wall Street Journal. White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest would neither confirm nor deny the letter's existence. "I'm not in a position to discuss private correspondence between the president and any world leader," Earnest said Thursday. When asked about secret negotiations with Khamenei, Iran's top political and religious leader, Earnest said the White House "also" conducts private briefings with key members of Congress...

    Barack Obama should listen to Peter Arnett. Arnett is the well-known war correspondent who not only covered the long war in Vietnam for the Associated Press, for which he won the Pulitzer, but who covered the shameful evacuation of the U.S. Embassy in Saigon in April 1975. Most recently, he was embedded in Baghdad, reporting from the front. The year 1975 was when the United States abandoned the people of South Vietnam to their fate as soldiers of the Communist North Vietnamese Army and the Viet Cong descended upon the city. They did so after the South Vietnamese Army, our...

    Like many liberal criticisms of market-based solutions to public policy problems, the idea of privatized armies is likely to conjure images of rogue mercenaries advertising in the back of Soldier of Fortune magazine. However, many of todayís paid civilian soldiers are highly skilled and professional former Navy SEALs, Army Rangers, and Marines. They often are employed by private contractors because of their effectiveness as support staff, training instructors, security personnel, and occasionally as combat-ready operators. They are trained and ready to kill the enemy, not ďdegradeĒ him. Such contractors have been instrumental in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan; filling...

    Former President Jimmy Carter said President Barack Obama "waited too long" to go after ISIS and criticized what he described as the president's changing foreign policy. "First of all, we waited too long. We let the Islamic State build up its money, capability and strength and weapons while it was still in Syria," Carter told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram in an interview published Tuesday. The 39th president was in Texas working on a Habitat for Humanity project. "Then when [ISIS] moved into Iraq, the Sunni Muslims didn't object to their being there and about a third of the territory in...

    It is not President Barack Obama's fault that the media, and hence the public, did not understand what he meant when he said he had "decimated" the core leadership of al-Qaida. That misunderstanding grew when it was revealed that the Osama bin Laden-less leadership of al-Qaida was still alive and had moved into Syria, morphing into what is now known as the Khorasan Group within ISIS -- the Islamist State in Iraq and Syria

    Joseph Miller is the pen name for a ranking Department of Defense official with a background in U.S. special operations and combat experience in Iraq and Afghanistan. He has worked in strategic planning. President Barack Obama has taken a lot of flack since his Sunday night ď60 MinutesĒ interview, in which he blamed the intelligence community for his failure to tackle the threat posed by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. And that is right and proper. Because not only was his excuse of blaming us a lie, but when questioned on his lie, White House press secretary Josh...

    Recently, I cautioned my fellow Americans against falling for the notion that the so-called ďIslamic StateĒ is among the gravest threats, or any considerable threat, to the United States. I noted that if the hyperbolic cries of politicians and their media propagandists in both parties so much as remotely resembled reality, then weíd have long ago witnessed at least two phenomena that, as of the present moment, remain conspicuously, indeed, painfully, absent from the current discourse. First, at long last, we would have jettisoned the Politically Correct labelsóďIslamo-Fascism,Ē ďIslamo-Nazism,Ē ďIslamism,Ē ďradical Islam,Ē ďIslamic extremism,Ē etc.óthat we invariably assign to Islamic...
