    The World (Huffington) Post / Agence France-Presse ^ | September 12, 2014 | Ryan Grim and Akbar Shahid Ahmed
    As the United States begins to deepen ties with moderate Syrian rebels to combat the extremist group ISIS, also known as the Islamic State, a key component of its coalition appears to have struck a non-aggression pact with the group. According to Agence France-Presse, ISIS and a number of moderate and hard-line rebel groups have agreed not to fight each other so that they can focus on taking down the regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad. Other sources say the signatories include a major U.S. ally linked to the Free Syrian Army. The deal between ISIS and the moderate Syrian...

    It’s hard to think of a worse candidate for a reporter covering national security issues than a once-committed 9/11 truther, but The Huffington Post apparently could. “The Huffington Post’s Washington bureau has hired professional football player and 9/11 truther Donte Stallworth as a fellow, covering national security,” Politico’s Dylan Byers wrote in a lede that would not seem out of place in The Onion. The Huffington Post was apparently not deterred by either Stallworth’s controversial views on the September 11 attacks, or his concern that the swine flu vaccine was part of an elaborate plot, or his criminal record....

    Are you a scientist trying to convince the public of the validity of your pet theory? Well, forget about presenting boring scientific evidence to support your premise. Instead you need to get in front of a mirror and practice facial expressions of deep concern and present that to the public to convinve them of your theory. If you think that is goofy, then that is exactly what the Huffington Post did to convince their readers that global warming scientists were really, really concerned about their pet cause which is losing public interest in their dire warnings namely because they failed...

    Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Fla.) is calling on the Obama administration to impose a travel ban on three West African nations in response to a growing Ebola virus outbreak. The House Foreign Affairs Committee member wants the State Department to bar citizens of Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone from entering the United States, including any foreign travelers who have visited those countries in the previous 90 days. He also requested that the ban be expanded to any nation that reports an originating case of the virus, and that restrictions only be lifted 90 days after the last reported case.

    Simon Wiesenthal Center Associate Dean Rabbi Abraham Cooper on Thursday slammed the Huffington Post and reporter Sophie Jones, its Middle East correspondent, for the sensationalist headline, They Just Wanted to Kill as Many People as Possible. Cooper said the headline, accusing Israel of targeting civilians in its current war against Hamas in Gaza, and Joness reporting, takes the art of lying and self-delusion to new depths. The Huffington Post article quoted Israel Defense Forces Lt. Col. Peter Lerner, the IDFs official spokesman, describing Israels policy and procedure to warn civilians before striking Gaza targets, but then accused Israel of targeting...

    Radio host Hugh Hewitt thoroughly embarrassed a Huffington Post reporter and exposed the scribes misleading view on Iraq during a brutal on-air interview. Hewitt hosted Zach Carter, the Huffington Posts senior political economy reporter, on the show to discuss recent comments by former Vice President Dick Cheney. Carter had excoriated Cheney for remarks made about Iraq during a previous interview on Hewitts program. The conversation quickly spiraled out of control for Carter when Hewitt dismantled the reporters false arguments for why the Bush administration is to blame for the current violence in Iraq. Carter, in the interview, admitted that he...

    Congratulations are in order for the new King of Spain, Felipe! CNN reported Monday that the 46-year-old prince will be taking over the throne from his father, King Juan Carlos I, who feels it's time for a younger leader. But a new reign doesn't just mean change for Spain, it also means a new queen. Felipe's wife, and arguably one of our favorite royals (besides Kate Middleton, of course), Princess Letizia will take over for Sofia, who has held the title since 1975. Even though we don't always agree with Letizia's sartorial choices, the 41-year-old has, on occasion, pleasantly satisfied...

    The Huffington Post inaccurately accused Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) of conceding that the [Republican] party's efforts to repeal ObamaCare aren't going anywhere in the Senate on Thursday. This article is misleading and is meant to drive a wedge between Senate and House conservatives. First off, Cruz is not making an effort to repeal ObamaCare. Republicans have voted over 40 times to"repeal" the President's health care overhaul and none of those votes have amounted to any change in law. Cruz is leading a fight to defund ObamaCare. This is a markedly different approach; Congress would use its power of the purse...

The US government eschewed a plea bargain (and Manning’s guilty plea to lesser charges) in order to try Manning for “aiding the enemy.” The prosecution made its opening argument yesterday: In an hour-long opening statement for the prosecution on Monday, Captain Joe Morrow told the court martial that the US army private had been motivated by a craving for “notoriety” that had led him to disregard his extensive training and to...

    Karl Rove sought to turn the tables Sunday on Sarah Palin, jabbing her for stepping down early as Alaska governor, a day after she blistered the GOP consultant in a speech at CPAC. Palin launched a broadside against the GOP establishment on Saturday at the gathering of conservatives, but directed her sharpest aim at Rove, reports Huffington Post. “If these experts who keep losing elections and keep getting rehired and getting millions — if they feel that strong about who gets to run in this party, then they should buck-up or stay in the truck,” Palin told CPAC Saturday, according...

    A Republican legislator in New Mexico is seeking to force pregnant rape victims to carry the pregnancy to term, claiming the fetus could be used as "evidence" at trial. Rep. Cathrynn Brown's bill would charge a rape victim who sought an abortion with a third-degree felony for "tampering with evidence," The Huffington Post reported Wednesday. "Tampering with evidence consists of destroying, changing, hiding, placing or fabricating any physical evidence with intent to prevent the apprehension, prosecution or conviction of any person or to throw suspicion of the commission of a crime upon another," House Bill 206 reads. ~snip~ "The bill...

    New Jersey Governor Chris Christie on Tuesday slammed the know-nothing, disgruntled Romney staffers who in a Huffington Post story on Monday accused him of snubbing Mitt Romney by skipping Sundays rally in Pennsylvania. Christie, a vocal backer of Romney, said during a press conference that he told the Republican presidential nominee before Hurricane Sandy hit that he would likely be unavailable for the rest of the campaign. I said to him, Listen, Mitt, if this storm hits the way I think its going to, Im off the campaign trail from here to Election Day, Christie recalled. And he said...

    A photograph taken by Getty Images on Friday of a man wearing a racist t-shirt at a Mitt Romney rally in Ohio has caused controversy over Gettys unsubstantiated claim the man is a supporter of the Republican presidential nominee. The photo showed a tight shot of the back of a bald-headed white man wearing a black t-shirt emblazoned with all-capitalized white lettering that said, Put the white back in the White House. Above the lettering at the nape of the mans neck a Romney-Ryan sticker was neatly applied to the t-shirt. Getty captioned the photo: LANCASTER, OH - OCTOBER 12:...

    On Thursday NBC's Andrea Mitchell asked Obama campaign spokesperson Ben LaBolt: "When is he going to be accessible for questions other than to People magazine and Entertainment Tonight?" LaBolt replied: "I wouldn't assume that, if he's in a local market, that the reporters' questions will be any less serious." Well, on Friday, President Obama had an interview on a local radio station in New Mexico. As you can hear on this VIDEO, these are some of those "serious questions," along with a couple of the president's answers: "Our big question is, red or green?" (i.e., chile peppers). The president's...
