    As long as Western leaders take to mics warning the unwashed masses never to refer to terrorism as terrorism, it’s going to be happy hunting for worldwide terrorists When terrorists look in the rear view mirror after their latest slaughterhouse jihad in any land, they clearly see the cowardice of all western leaders and plenty of opportunities in what millennials would call ‘wiggle room’. Aware right down to their AK-47 tingling trigger fingers, the terrorists of today and tomorrow know that they will never be I’D’d as ‘terrorists’ because the leaders of the countries they strike will never allow the...

    Un frickin’ believable! Copies of ‘torture’ report hand delivered to terror suspects, blocked from CIA officials: Full disclosure took a back seat to the CIA’s green movement last week when agency big shots blocked officials from printing out hard copies of the Senate Democratic report on terrorist interrogations, fearing it was “killing too many trees.” Meanwhile, paper copies of the report from Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein were hand-delivered to terror suspects at Guantanamo Bay — though not the rebuttals from the CIA or Republicans on her committee. Oh, the Hillarity: NEW YORK (AP) — Hillary Rodham Clinton said Tuesday she’s...

    Nope. Not their war against Christmas; but their war against our military: The Obama administration is withholding hundreds, perhaps even thousands of photographs showing the U.S. government’s brutal treatment of detainees, meaning that revelations about detainee abuse could well continue, possibly compounding the outrage generated by the Senate “torture report” now in the public eye. Some photos show American troops posing with corpses; others depict U.S. forces holding guns to people’s heads or simulating forced sodomization. All of them could be released to the public, depending on how a federal judge in New York rules—and how hard the government fights...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia is joining the debate over the Senate's torture report by saying it's hard to rule out the use of extreme measures to extract information if millions of lives were threatened. Scalia told a Swiss broadcast network that American and European liberals who say such tactics may never be used are being self-righteous. The 78-year-old justice said he doesn't "think it's so clear at all," especially if interrogators were trying to find a ticking nuclear bomb. Scalia has made similar comments in the past, but he renewed his remarks on Wednesday in an...

Absent from the 5 year investigation is any participation from Republicans who sit on the Senate Intelligence Committee. They perceived the Feinstein investigation as a partisan exercise. So what we're left with, absent the Minority Views Report, is a non-bipartisan (re: partisan), $40 million investigation tinted and tainted by a Democrat's worldview lens in interpreting the information they used to draw up the Report.

It's a simple question with a fascinating answer, one that begins with the Cold War and ends with the future space exploration. When it comes to space travel, plutonium-238 is the perfect fuel: long-lasting and, as I'll explain later, relatively safe. Without it, we have no hope of going much further than...

    Camp Liberty is currently facing a humane and human rights crisis On Wednesday, 26 November 2014, patients in Camp Liberty adjacent to Baghdad International Airport held a rally protesting the medical siege imposed by the Iraqi government on the residents of this camp. The inhumane medical siege against Iranian dissidents, members of opposition People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran in Iraq, continues after the transfer of their protection from the US government to the Iraqi government in early 2009 and with Nouri Maliki – a political ally of the Iranian regime – coming to power in Iraq. To this day 22...

    It’s been five months since the prisoner swap of five terrorists for Army SGT. Bowe Bergdahl. The Army has yet to release the Gen. Kenneth Dahl report of recommendations for possible disciplinary actions. The report was held up until after the midterm election in a vain attempt to protect Democrats and now the Pentagon claims it must review the report before making a decision. This is called a delaying action, waiting until the American public becomes thoroughly complacent and no longer cares about Bergdahl, the man who was called a deserter by his fellow soldiers. On June 27, 2009, SGT...

    "But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere." - James 3:17 (NIV)- By: Larry Walker II - It was back in the late 90's when a good friend of mine, an old Air Force veteran named Dan, relayed to me that he had recently killed a young Black male at a bus stop. When I first heard this I was shocked and in disbelief. Old Dan must have been close to 70 years old at the time, his body riddled with cancer, brain...

    On Sept. 30, the U.S. Army unceremoniously stood up a new headquarters—the 1st Special Forces Command—at Fort Bragg, North Carolina. The division-level unit brings together more than 15,000 Green Berets and other special troops in a single new organization. Previously, the Army’s Special Operations Command had directly controlled all of these troops plus others on a wide range of missions. The idea behind the new HQ is to assemble a force specifically tailored for dealing with what the Pentagon calls “hybrid warfare.” Simply put, hybrid warfare is a blend of straight-up traditional combat—with infantry, tanks and artillery—and secretive insurgency. Probably...
  • Captured Terrorists Now Referred to as "Unprivileged Enemy" in Dept. of Defense Manual

    The Department of Defense will no longer call captured terrorists "unlawful combatants," but will now refer to these people as "unprivileged enemies." In a joint publication released this month, terrorists captured and detained by the United States will no longer be called "unlawful combatants," which is now apparently an obsolete term. Instead, a more polically correct term, "unprivileged enemies," has been chosen. The manual explains, "Belligerent. In general, a person who is engaged in hostilities against the US or its multinational partners during an armed conflict. The term belligerent includes both privileged belligerent and unprivileged enemy belligerent." It also includes...
  • Kobane: “a martyred town, a symbolic Town”

    Kobane symbolizes Turkish duplicity “A martyred town, a symbolic town” is the poignant description of Kobane, by French President Francois Hollande. He stated that “all countries concerned” should be providing weapons to the Kobane defenders and pointedly stated as bluntly as any diplomatic language can , that “Turkey must absolutely open its border.” If Kobane is a symbol in Hollande’s words, then what did Hollande think it symbolic of? Kobane is an encircled Syrian Kurdish city of 160,000 inhabitants just inside the Syrian border from Turkey and entrenched on three sides by the well-equipped ISIS army that has promised the...

    In a letter sent this month to Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel, House Armed Services Committee Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-Calif.) noted that Joint Special Operations Command delivered a ransom payment for the release of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. He wrote “Given the significance of this matter, as well as the fact that Pentagon officials have denied that a payment was even considered — and you also said you were unaware of any such attempt — I ask you to immediately inquire with JSOC to determine the specific order of events.” (2) The money was delivered to a phony “intermediary” who...

    Immediately upon hearing of Secretary Hagel's decision to resign, President Obama began His search for the best available replacement. Today, He announced His eagerly awaited choice for a successor. I have too many personal problems. Statement of President Obama: My fellow Americans, as you are well aware, I pledged soon after taking office in 2009 that My administration would be the most transparent ever. In keeping with My solemn vow, I want to tell you this evening about My most important actions over the past few days, and how I decided to take them, to make our already exceptional national security even better. A few days ago, My very close personal friend and scapegoat Republican...
