  • Islamic State numbers go down in Iraq, Syria; up in Libya

    New intelligence assessments show that the number of Islamic State fighters has dropped in Iraq and Syria but is rising in Libya, a senior U.S. defense official said Thursday. According to the official, reports suggest there are 19,000-25,000 IS fighters in Iraq and Syria, compared to an earlier range of 20,000 to more than 30,000. The newly declassified numbers back up recent comments from military commanders and other defense officials who have argued that the U.S.-led coalition airstrikes are having an impact on Islamic State militants and causing them to lose ground in both countries. ...

    Just in time for the kick-off of the electoral season comes a movie that reminds Americans yet again what is wrong with the government we have endured for the past eight years. The riveting 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi, directed by big budget action film director Michael Bay and based on the nonfiction book 13 Hours by Mitchell Zuckoff, is a soldier's-eye view of the notorious terrorist assaults on two American compounds in Benghazi, Libya, on September 11, 2012. The movie is not for all tastes, featuring combat violence aplenty (though no gratuitous gore) and an excess of...

    An email hidden from public view for three years reveals a rescue attempt was interrupted. The military offered to deploy Special Forces to Benghazi during the assault, long before the attackers killed CIA contractors and former Navy Seals Glen Doherty and Ty Woods. Three and a half hours into the eight-hour long siege, the military's Chief of Staff Jeremy Bash emails top State Department officials: "we have identified the forces that could move to Benghazi. They are spinning up as we speak. They include a SOF [Special Operations Forces] element that was in Croatia."

    The latest batch of Hillary Clinton's private emails includes one that shows Clinton made an effort to help evacuate the acting Libyan prime minister from Benghazi amid a crumbling security situation. The email shows Clinton received a request for supplies to help the acting prime minister leave Benghazi and transition into Tripoli, the nation's capital. Clinton seemingly greenlighted his request, and asked her aide Huma Abedin if the U.S. government could ship the requested supplies to a Libyan port.

The ad shows the grave of Chris Stevens, the U.S. ambassador killed in Benghazi, Libya. The 30-second ad by the Stop Hillary PAC aired on CNN in Washington, New York and other media markets during Tuesdays Democratic debate. It also shows photos of Stevens and three other Americans killed during the 2012 attacks on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi. Democrats on the House Benghazi committee condemned the ad Wednesday and said Stevens image was used without his familys permission.

    (CNN)-The day after the Benghazi terror attack, a staffer for Arizona Sen. John McCain emailed Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's office to convey praise for her remarks to State Department employees after the attack. Her statement to employees about the tragedy was "wonderful, strong and moving," said the McCain staffer, who asked Clinton's office to convey the senator's appreciation of the remarks. Ultimately, McCain turned into a fierce critic of Clinton over the attack. And Clinton's handling of Benghazi has been scrutinized and has cast a shadow over her tenure leading the State Department.

Ty Woods and Glen Doherty were both members of the CIAs GRS, an organization that has recruited hundreds of former U.S. Special Forces operatives and veterans of police department SWAT teams to serve as armed guards to provide a layer of security for CIA officers in high-risk outposts, whose counterterrorism assignments carry a level of risk. Was David Ubben working for the GRS as a contractor ??

    Hillary Rodham Clinton defended her response to the deadly 2012 terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya, writing in her new book that she will not be part of a political slugfest on the backs of dead Americans. Clintons upcoming book, Hard Choices, is both a rebuke to Republicans who have seized upon the terrorist attack that killed four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens, and a roadmap for Democrats to defend the Obama administrations reaction to the Sept. 11, 2012, attack. Should Clinton run for president in 2016, her four years as secretary of stateincluding the deaths in Benghazi and the...

    Some people on the left have a moral and mental flexibility that would put Lilia Stepanovas actual flexibility to shame. (Did you just google that name? Kinda cool, huh?) Eleanor Clift, columnist at the Daily Beast, is still blaming some obscure YouTube video for the terrorist attack on Americas consulate in Benghazi. But, thats not the audacious comments that have sparked outrage. Clift, in her clinically psychopathic ways (seriously Google the definition Im not making this up) declared that the American Ambassador, Chris Stevens, was not murdered He died of smoke inhalation. This is like saying the people who...

    On this week's McLaughlin Group, the Daily Beast's Eleanor Clift showed an ignorance of the facts about the Benghazi terrorist attack that should disqualify her from commenting on it. Get a load of this: CLICK ABOVE LINK FOR THE VIDEO ELEANOR CLIFT: I would like to point out Ambassador Stevens was not murdered. He died of smoke inhalation in the safe room in that CIA installation. SUSAN FERRECHIO: I don't think that's a fact, Eleanor. CLIFT: I think that is a fact. FERRECHIO: I've heard a drastically different story from people who are also in the know about that. So,...

    Daily Beast columnist Eleanor Clift said on Sundays The McLaughlin Group that late U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens, who was killed the night of the Benghazi attacks, had not been murdered but had died from smoke inhalation. Id like to point out that Ambassador Stevens was not murdered, Clift said, using air quotes, but died of smoke inhalation in a CIA safe room. This did not land well. It was a terrorist attack, Eleanor, panelist-for-life Pat Buchanan said. He was murdered in a terrorist attack. Clift responded that it was an opportunistic terrorist attack inflamed by the anti-Muslim video, the blaming...

    Prepare to be appalled. This is Eleanor Clift, liberal columnist, talking about the attack in Benghazi with the panel on The McLaughlin Group on Friday. It wasnt murder, it was SMOKE INHALATION? That is so patently absurd its hard to believe its not a parody. SMOKE. INHALATION. The poor reasoning here really requires no explanation. And thats not the only digging she does in this hole. She goes on to suggest it really was all about a video, that Petraeus should be on trial, not Hillary, and basically sneer at the entire thing as if it was no more consequential...

    When Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made a brief self-congratulatory trip to Tripoli, Libya, in October 2011 -- with U.S. military assets lurking offshore in case they needed to rescue her -- she joked, in the presence of then-Ambassador Gene Cretz and Assistant Secretary of State Jeffrey Feltman, that they had not-so-long-ago been worried that the ambassador might end up the target of a murderous Libyan assault. "As Gene and Assistant Secretary Feltman and I were walking through here, they were talking about how the last time Jeff was here was when we were very worried that Gadhafi and [Libyan...

    April 30, 2014, 02:39 pm Carney: Email was not about Benghazi By Justin Sink Press secretary Jay Carney said Wednesday that a newly-revealed email showing a White House official preparing then-U.S. ambassador Susan Rice for television interviews was not explicitly in reference to the terror attack in Benghazi. "The email and the talking points were not about Benghazi," Carney said. "They were about the general situation in the Muslim world." A set of documents obtained by the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch through a Freedom of Information Act request included an email from deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes to...

    Rep. Donna Edwards (D-MD) delivered the keynote speech yesterday at the Washington Press Club Foundation. The far left politician compared Republicans to monkeys and gave a shout out to Nancy Pelosi and all my sisters in the libido caucus. The Politico reported: Washingtonians sit through terrible speeches all the time: dry rules hearings, partisan floor lectures and, lets face it, even the State of the Union some years. So it was a bad day for Rep. Donna Edwards Thursday, when Washingtonians gathered at coffee pots and in lunch rooms across town and deemed her performance at the Washington Press Club...

    Last week the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence issued its report on the Sept. 11, 2012, terrorist attacks in Benghazi, Libya. The report concluded that the attack, which resulted in the murder of four Americans, was "preventable." Some have been suggesting that the blame for this tragedy lies at least partly with Ambassador Chris Stevens, who was killed in the attack. This is untrue: The blame lies entirely with Washington. The report states that retired Gen. Carter Ham, then-commander of the U.S. Africa Command (Africom) headquartered in Stuttgart, Germany, twice offered to "sustain" the special forces security team in Tripoli...
