    Summary - Ash Carter, Frank Kendall and Robert Work bury a Defense Business Board / McKinsey report that $125 B is wasted on bloated bureaucracy in particular supported by hordes of overpaid contractors. Frank Kendall wasďvery disappointedĒ by the boardís work, which he criticized as ďshallowĒ and ďvery low on content.Ē He said the study had ignored efforts by his agencies to become more efficient." Kendall said he needs 1000 more people working directly under him. Peter Cook, a spokesman for Carter, said the Pentagon chief was busy dealing with ďa long list of national security challenges.Ē He added that...

    It appears former president Jimmy Carter, now 92 years old, has yet to meet a tyrant he doesnít admire. His continuing embrace of terrorist regimes makes some wonder when we will see the cessation of his continual self-exhumations from political burial in order to once again resume his prophetic declamations on behalf of odious regimes, past and present. Carterís latest declamation on the demise of the pitiless tyrant Fidel Castro reveals once again his lifelong empathy for totalitarian regimes: ďRosalynn and I share our sympathies with the Castro family and the Cuban people on the death of Fidel Castro.

    Times of Israel ^ | November 29, 2016, 6:01 am | Eric Cortellessa
    Former US president Jimmy Carter penned an op-ed in The New York Times Monday imploring President Barack Obama to formally recognize a Palestinian state before Donald Trump takes office in January. Carter, who helped broker the 1978 Camp David Accords that brought peace between Israel and Egypt, argued the possibility of solidifying a two-state outcome between Israelis and Palestinians was dwindling because of continued settlement activity in the West Bank. Carterís controversial 2006 book ďPalestine: Peace Not ApartheidĒ designated Israel an apartheid state ďwith two peoples occupying the same land, but completely separated from each other, with Israelis totally dominant...

    The heads of the Pentagon and the nationís intelligence community have recommended to President Obama that the director of the National Security Agency, Adm. Michael S. Rogers, be removed. The recommendation, delivered to the White House last month, was made by Defense Secretary Ashton B. Carter and Director of National Intelligence James R. Clapper Jr., according to several U.S. officials familiar with the matter. Action has been delayed, some administration officials said, because relieving Rogers of his duties is tied to another controversial recommendation: to create separate chains of command at the NSA and the

    As Barack Obamaís tenure comes to a close, political analysts are already drawing comparisons between the current administration and that of Jimmy Carterís. Both proved to be exceedingly inept at dealing with emerging foreign crises, both were harshly and unfairly critical of Israel and both betrayed loyal allies, utilizing all methods available to undermine friends while propping up hostile foes. The personification of this doctrine is best illustrated by that manner in which both administrations empowered and emboldened the mullahs of the Islamic Republic of Iran. The Islamic fundamentalist takeover of Iran in 1979 was a disastrous occurrence that was...

    In 1979, after a long campaign of political pressure applied by the Carter administration in the United States, the Shah of Iran fell to the Islamic Revolution, ending a tradition of monarchic rule that had persisted in Iran for thousands of years since the rule of Cyrus the Great. The stage was set for the rise of the Ayatollah, and the establishment of a theocracy in Iran that, today, most Iranians do not even want. But what if none of that had ever happened? While a momentous departure from actual history, it is not nearly so far-fetched as it sounds....

As reported by the BBC, the Ayatollah Khomeini, in January 1979, secretly sought Carterís assistance in overcoming opposition from Iranís military, still loyal to the shah. Khomeini promised that if he could return to Iran from exile in France, which the United States could facilitate, he would prevent a civil war, and his regime would not be hostile to Washington. The soon-to-be Supreme Leader of Iran certainly knew a sucker when he saw one. What Carter...

    Jimmy Carter said Monday that presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump had tapped into "inherent racism" to bolster his candidacy. In an interview with The New York Times, Carter, the 39th president, also said Trump violated "basic human rights" by labeling Mexican and Muslim immigrants as criminals and terrorists. "When you single out any particular group of people for secondary citizenship status, that's a violation of basic human rights," Carter said.

    In an unusually scathing memo to Secretary of the Navy Ray Maybus, Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter has demanded severe changes to the troubled Littoral Combat Ship program. It includes instructions to cut the number of Littoral Combat Ships to be built, and as well as focusing on building one variant, from one shipyard and general contractor. arter has specifically directed Maybus to cut the number of hulls for the LCS program from 52 to 40, and to select a single LCS design-shipbuilder team, instead of the current plan for two completely separate designs and shipbuilders, according to the letter...

    The Pentagon acknowledged Wednesday that Defense Secretary Ash Carter used a personal email account to do some of his government business during his first months on the job. Carter's press secretary, Peter Cook, declined to say whether it was a violation of Pentagon email policies. He said work-related messages Carter received on his personal account were "copied or forwarded to his official account so [they] can be preserved as a federal record as appropriate."

    Ash Carter is a democrat at the national level. That statement really is the only thing that needs to be written. But this use of a personal email account by a cabinet member at this time is too cute by half. No one is fooled. It is cynical beyond basic norms of honesty and decency. But simple common sense says that Ash Carter, who took office just 10 months ago, knew what was up with Hillary. The facts also say the same. "The New York Times obtained emails that showed Carter using the private account, which led to an official...

    ISIS seems to be anywhere and everywhere these days. The organization of evil is spreading across the globe like cancer cells, causing death wherever it takes up occupancy. The maestros of murder are on the move; in Europe, the Middle East and in the US. Today, the entire Los Angeles Public School system was shut down because of an erroneous bomb threat that strangely emanated from Frankfurt, Germany. The same threat was sent to New York, but was dismissed as a hoax. Was it? Or, was it a test run by ISIS to see what our reactions were? What can...

    Ever since Iranian terrorists imprisoned American Embassy personnel in Tehran early in November, these 50 men and women‚ÄĒtheir safety, their health, and their future‚ÄĒhave been our central concern. We've made every effort to obtain their release on honorable, peaceful, and humanitarian terms, but the Iranians have refused to release them or even to improve the inhumane conditions under which these Americans are being held captive. It must be made clear that the failure to release the hostages will involve increasingly heavy costs to Iran and to its interests. I have today ordered the following steps. Fourth, the Secretary of Treasury...

    Trump is a monster, a madman and a vile racist. He's just like Hitler. Or Jimmy Carter. During the Iranian hostage crisis, Carter issued a number of orders to put pressure on Iran. Among these, Iranians were banned from entering the United States unless they oppose the Shiite Islamist regime or had a medical emergency. Here's Jimmy "Hitler" Carter saying it back in 1980. Fourth, the Secretary of Treasury [State] and the Attorney General will invalidate all visas issued to Iranian citizens for future entry into the United States, effective today. We will not reissue visas, nor will we issue...

    Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. Former Democratic President Woodrow Wilson may be purged from his alma mater, Princeton University. The old ‚ÄúSchoolmaster of Politics‚ÄĚ, as he was known for his academic background at Cornell, Bryn Mawr, Wesleyan and finally president of Princeton U, has been thrown under the bus by its current president for being a politically incorrect progressive. Also known as a plain old racist. Woody was indeed a racist. Though even on his worst day he was still about 40% less racist than...
