This is up 200,000 checks over March last year and 400,000 checks over the number that took place in February.

    According to President Karzai, the Obama administration said that the Taliban are "not our enemies." If not them, who? United States Marines and soldiers like Marine Reserve Maj. Jason Brezler or Lance Cpl Greg Buckley (below)? It would seem so by the treacherous actions of the Obama administration. There's a stunning new development in the murder of Lance Cpl. Greg Buckley Jr. Atlas readers are long familiar with the horrible murder of Lance Cpl. Buckley. The murderer of this great American hero in one of a string of insider attacks was Aynoddin, the 19-year-old "tea boy" of Afghan District Police...

    The U.S. Navy is being rocked by a bribery scandal that federal investigators say has reached high into the officer corps and exposed a massive overbilling scheme run by an Asian defense contractor that provided prostitutes and other kickbacks. Among those arrested on corruption charges are a senior agent for the Naval Criminal Investigative Service and a Navy commander who escaped Cambodia’s “killing fields” as a child only to make a triumphant return to the country decades later as the skipper of a U.S. destroyer. The investigation has also ensnared a Navy captain who was relieved of his ship’s command...

    Israelis portrayed on CBS's long running series NCIS -- the Israelis who are not "Americanized," anyway -- are becoming become more and more sinister.

It was a slightly more optimistic take on his life and for fans, one that was welcomed.

It was an arc with some jarring moments and it set up...

    Fiery Reaction to Marine’s Stolen Saddam Rifle Is it among the spoils of war? Or worthy of a felony conviction that carries a 10-year prison sentence? The recent conviction of a Twentynine Palms Marine from Hemet has sparked a debate from readers and a fierce defense from the Marine himself. To rewind, Staff Sgt. Joel Cleve Miller was convicted last week of illegal possession of a machine gun. Federal prosecutors said he smuggled a chrome-plated AK-47 that once belonged to Iraqi Dictator Saddam Hussein’s Royal Guard back to his home in Hemet after a 2005 tour in Iraq. Miller now...

    The show is only half over tonight so there's still hope this will turn around. So far, a poor innocent Muslim (US Military Solider) was killed in cold blood, the reason will of course be because he was muslim. When Ducky gave his diversity speech about "perhaps we should spend more time seeing what we have in common rather than killing each other" I nearly puked. Let's look at reality, a muslim walked in and opened up on his fellow soldiers. They are doing all the cold blooded killing, not us. I think Navy NCIS is off my list. Let's...

The stud-muffin model-type NCIS "investigators" are after a new "militia" group of vigilante racists called the ELE: "Enhancing Law Enforcement." Besides stealing Dragon missiles for some terrorist plot to be determined, they were shown on the border, chasing poor helpless "immigrants" into the desert at gunpoint, where women and children die of thirst.This is the MOST vomitous PC-fest I have EVER seen on broadcast TV, and it's on now.

We might have declared it an impossible task. Yet here we stand, celebrating the 10th anniversary of a system that does just that—but within seconds. Because of NICS, "instant" checks are not only possible, they have become routine. But they are not something we should take for granted.

The alleged murders were revealed last year by former Corporal Ryan Weemer, once a Marine rifleman from 3rd Platoon, Kilo Company, Third Battalion, 1st Marines. Weemer fought valiantly at the Hell House during the Fallujah battle in November 2004 and sustained three gunshot wounds. He was a fire team leader in...

    The U.S. military took the extraordinary step of apologizing for the deadly shooting in Afghanistan earlier this year by Marines that left 19 civilians dead and another 50 wounded. One senior official who has seen the results of the preliminary investigation into the incident says it was "as bad as Haditha," a reference to the 2005 shooting deaths of 24 Iraqi civilians that resulted in three Marines being charged with murder.Like Haditha, the incident was triggered by an explosion targeting a Marine convoy. Witnesses allege the Marines then fired upon civilians gathered at a roadside bazaar and continued to fire...

    NORTH COUNTY -- The Naval Criminal Investigative Service is denying its agents did anything improper when they interrogated Marines in the 2005 slaying of two dozen Iraqi civilians in Haditha.On Tuesday, attorneys representing a senior officer charged in the case, Lt.

    An Honest Investigation Would Have Cleared Lieutenant Pantano in Iraq (and Other Lessons for the Haditha Hearings)Second Lieutenant Ilario Pantano was an outstanding Marine officer who did his job, including the hard business of killing the enemy, very well. And then the government told him that he was a murderer. On February 1, 2005, he was charged with premeditated murder and a host of other charges including dereliction of duty and damaging a terrorist’s car. Not a single charge should have been made. The lieutenant had shot and killed two detainees after they made a hostile move toward him. Lieutenant...

    Rather than some frenzied killing spree, Sharratt says that the Marines in 3-1 Kilo Company raided 22 homes that day, but only fired their weapons in four instances. They took 30 prisoners, and found weapons, thousands of dollars in US cash, and Jordanian passports, and he says that the allegations they murdered civilians are patently false. "The bottom line is," says Sharratt, "what were the Rules of Engagement that day, and did the Marines of 3-1 Kilo Co. follow them faithfully to the best of their ability? That is what this case will hinge on".

    CAMP PENDLETON ---- A Marine lance corporal took the hand of an Iraqi man he had just helped kidnap last year and used it to strike the face of the bullet-riddled victim, a co-defendant in the homicide case testified Thursday. "He took his hand and kind of played with it and made Mr. Awad hit himself," former Petty Officer Melson Bacos said about his squad mate, Lance Cpl. Robert Pennington, during testimony in a Camp Pendleton courtroom. "He said, 'Quit hitting yourself.' "Bacos' testimony came as the government presented evidence that will lead to its sentencing recommendation when the court-martial...

    CAMP PENDLETON ---- The attorney for a Marine corporal who pleaded guilty last month to murder in the 2006 shooting death of an Iraqi man now wants his client to withdraw that plea and proceed to trial. Victor Kelley, the attorney for Cpl. Trent Thomas, told a military judge Thursday morning that he now believes that his client was "acting under the color of lawful authority." The defense move came on what was to be the third day of a sentencing hearing for the 25-year-old St. Louis native, who pleaded guilty on Jan. 18 to murder, assault, kidnapping and related...

    The U.S. Marines accused of murder and other charges in the case of the Haditha killings in Iraq cannot get a fair trial, says retired Air Force Lt. General Thomas McInerney.Commenting on Rep. John Murtha's outrageous charges that the Marines of Kilo Company had committed cold-blooded murder of civilians in Haditha on November 19, 2005, McInerney said that the Pennsylvania Democrat's declaration "has certainly prejudiced the case."In an exclusive interview with NewsMax.com, the general who served 35 years in the United States Air Force as a pilot, commander, and Joint Force Commander and retired from military service as Assistant Vice...

    Our view: Military investigators risking their own cases by failing to use yesterday's technology. Seven years into the 21st century, it's long past time for NCIS to catch up to 20th-century technology.The investigators of the Naval Criminal Investigative Service, the federal agency responsible for investigating sailors and Marines accused of criminal acts, must immediately start recording their interviews and interrogations of witnesses and suspects with something better than a ballpoint pen. The perils of not doing so are apparent to anyone following the Article 32 hearing of Marine 2nd Lt. Nathan Phan, who stands accused of assaulting three Iraqis in...
