    The Paris terrorist attacks bring to mind the frightening case of an Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) operative arrested in Chicago last fall and released earlier this year to serve probation in Illinois for a state crime that secretly drew federal intervention. His name is Emad Karakrah, the ringleader of a sophisticated narco-terror operation and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) facilitated his release from Cook County Jail in January. Judicial Watch uncovered Karakrah's terrorism record and has reported extensively on his extremist activities, including a 2009 plot to bomb talk-show host Oprah Winfrey's Chicago studios and the...

    ISIS has developed a specific group within its organization dedicated to launching terrorist attacks abroad, like the one the claimed more than 100 lives in Paris, U.S. officials told ABC News. "There is a specific unit on the organization charts of ISIS for external attacks, for planning and carrying out attacks in western Europe and in the United States," said Richard Clarke, a former White House counter-terrorism advisor and current ABC News consultant. Just a day before the attacks in Paris, ISIS claimed responsibility for a dual suicide bombing in Beirut, Lebanon that killed 43 people. At the end of...

    Ending homelessness isn't just about finding a home. Sometimes, it's about finding a nice home — a place that's bright, modern and healthy to live in. That's the idea fueling the development of a number of buildings around the country, as communities try to move chronically homeless people off the streets. In downtown Washington, D.C., one of those buildings is currently going up right beside NPR's headquarters. Still under construction, the structure looks a little like four huge blocks, stacked atop each other and slightly askew. At 14 stories high, it will have a striking view of the U.S. Capitol...

    Austria has said it is planning to construct a fence at the main border crossing used by migrants entering the country from Slovenia. Austrian Chancellor Werner Faymann said the move would not shut the border, but would allow better control of arrivals. It came as Germany said it expected the number of deportations of failed asylum seekers to rise. Meanwhile, at least three migrants drowned and 242 were saved when a boat sank off the Greek island of Lesbos. "We do not have a picture of how many people may be missing yet," a Greek coastguard spokeswoman said. Earlier, three...

    The fanatical jihadis are sending teams of trained killers into camps disguised as refugees to kidnap and kill vulnerable Christians. But refugees are terrified to report many of the killings in case they are targeted next, according to aid workers. The horrifying tactic emerged after one terrorist got cold feet and renounced jihad after witnessing Christians helping out other refugees within the camp. He then revealed that he had been sent with an Islamist hit squad to eliminate Christians as part of the hate group's ideological drive to wipe the religion off the map. Express.co.uk has revealed how Christianity could...

    As if the President Obamas sweeping amnesty measures havent compromised national security enough, the administration let 1,519 inadmissible foreigners embroiled in terrorism into the U.S. last year because the crimes were committed while under duress. Before the Obama administration tweaked a federal law last year, these foreign nationals would have been banned from the country for supporting terrorist causes. But under the changes the Secretary of Homeland Security has discretionary authority to waive certain grounds of inadmissibility relating to terrorism. Weve seen this discretionary authority abused in the last few years and in fact, the administration has eliminated a zero...

    The Defense Department has responded to mounting allegations that U.S. soldiers were told to ignore Afghan troops abusing children by insisting there was "no such policy" at the time. But lawmakers and those who served in Afghanistan suggest that the Pentagon is leaning on semantics -- and that while there may have been no official policy telling troops to turn a blind eye, they certainly didn't encourage American soldiers to intervene either. Plus, they say cases where those who did intervene were punished sent a clear message to fellow soldiers. Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif., who served in Afghanistan, called the...

That sobering news comes from the Office of Personnel Management, the federal personnel agency whose data was hacked in what officials believe was a Chinese espionage operation. An estimated 21.5 million current and former federal employees or job applicants were affected in a data theft that experts say will give Chinese intelligence a huge leg up in recruiting informants. It could also help the Chinese catch U.S. spies. The agency...

As the department overseeing the country's power grid and nuclear weapons stockpile, the Energy Department is an attractive target for overseas cyber spies seeking to uncover vulnerabilities. Meanwhile, the Department of Homeland Security is warning critical infrastructure providers of a malicious spear-phishing campaign in which hackers use bogus emails to infiltrate users' networks.

Concerns about the handling of those samples led the Army to announce a moratorium on production, shipping and handling of toxins at nine labs last week. But officials did not acknowledge until Thursday that plague and encephalitis samples were involved. When asked why the Pentagon didn't disclose the new concerns about plague and encephalitis last week, Pentagon press secretary Peter Cook said that officials were...

    Former Vice President Dick Cheney said Sunday that the European refugee crisis is a direct consequence of President Obamas failed foreign policy and that he does not support the Iran nuclear deal. Cheney, who was vice president in the George W. Bush administration, said Obama has helped to create a huge vacuum in Iraq for terror groups like the Islamic State to flourish and kill by failing to secure an agreement with Iraqi leaders to keep U.S. troops in the country after the war. That contributed directly to the refugee crisis, Cheney told Fox News Sunday. Its a crisis of...

    When millions of people around the world were taken aghast by the pictures of drowned three-year-old Syrian boy Aylan Kurdi lying washed up on a Turkish beach and the massive refugee crisis engulfing Europe, they should see through the fact that the US is mainly responsible for all the mess. The main sources of today's refugees - Syria, Libya, Iraq and Afghanistan - are targets of US intervention, which led to devastation, chaos, deteriorating domestic security and extensive displacements. People in those countries could no longer enjoy even basic human rights. Many of them had no choice but to flee...

    A majority of Republican voters, 54 percent, think that President Obama is a Muslim, according to a new survey from the left-leaning Public Policy Polling (PPP). Asked whether they thought Obama is a Christian or Muslim or if they were unsure, 32 percent said they were unsure. Fourteen percent said he was a Christian. Many right-leaning voters have been deeply skeptical about Obama's faith since before he became president. The topic arose again prominently in 2012, when Obama faced former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, a devout Mormon, in the general election. Obama rarely invokes his own faith in speeches and...
