    “Look, I think it is absolutely vital for every country, every leader to send a signal that the viciousness of a handful of killers does not stop the world from doing vital business,” Obama said, when asked on Sunday whether the attacks would have an effect on the mood of the summit. Obama has repeatedly emphasized the damaging effect that climate change has on national security in preparation for the summit. During a Coast Guard graduation speech in May, Obama emphasized that the recruits would be facing the threat global warming. “Climate change constitutes a serious threat to global security,...

    Two weeks ago, White House National Security adviser Susan Rice said during an interview that officials in the Obama administration would "die trying" to close Guantanamo Bay prison, something President Obama promised to do during his 2008 presidential campaign. Last summer we saw the exchange of Army deserter Bowe Bergdahl (someone Rice said served with "honor and distinction") for five top Taliban commanders. Now, just two days after ISIS carried out the worst terror attack in France since World War II, the Obama administration has transferred five more detainees to the United Arab Emirates.The Department of Defense announced late Sunday...

    Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani has never been one to hold back his feelings on an issue, but his run-in with U.N. Ambassador and Benghazi spin master Susan Rice days after the September 2012 attack might take the idea of candor to a whole new level. "I was on Sunday morning television with Susan Rice that Sunday," Giuliani revealed on Thursdays Hannity.

    In her most dramatic speech to date about climate change, National Security Advisor Susan Rice suggests climate change was partially responsible for the conflict in Syria and represents a looming threat to the entire world. In the years prior to civil war breaking out in Syria, that country also experienced its worst drought on record, she said during a political speech at Stanford University. Farming families moved en masse into urban centers, increasing political unrest and further priming the country for conflict.

The two secret deals, which cover the Parchin military site and the possible military dimensions (PMDs) of Irans nuclear program, were revealed Wednesday by Sens. Sen.

In a memo from the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) to the National Security Council, the CIA, and the White House five days after the attack on the consulate in Benghazi, the DIA concluded that the attack had been planned for more than a week and was retribution for an American drone strike that had killed a senior al-Qaeda leader in June 2012. Moreover, the attack had been planned for the anniversary of 9/11 as a propaganda coup for AQ and...

As in Syria, there is no military solution to the crisis in Yemen, Rice said during a speech at the Arab American Institutes Kahlil Gibran Gala on Wednesday. Rices stark assessment of the current situation in Yemen is the latest indication that the administration is quietly backing away from touting the fight against terrorists in Yemen as a success story.

    The logical flaw in the indictment of a looming very bad nuclear deal with Iran that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu delivered before Congress this month was his claim that we could secure a good deal by calling Irans bluff and imposing tougher sanctions. The Iranian regime that Netanyahu described so vividly violent, rapacious, devious and redolent with hatred for Israel and the United States is bound to continue its quest for nuclear weapons by refusing any good deal or by cheating. This gives force to the Obama administrations taunting rejoinder: What is Netanyahus alternative? War? But the...

Much of the criticism has dwelled on the Obama administrations lack of vetting when filling these rollsbut thats not the issue. To the contrary, the Obama team did investigate thoroughly and they choose precisely. When an administration repeatedly nominates hard-left individuals, its not a vetting errorits a pattern. We should not allow the media to portray these appointments as a series of errors; but rather, we need to realize that...

    When Alfred E. Neuman said "What me worry?" on the cover of Mad magazine, it was funny. But this message was not nearly as funny coming from President Barack Obama and his National Security Advisor, Susan Rice. In a musical comedy, it would be hilarious to have the president send out his "happy talk" message by someone whose credibility was already thoroughly discredited by her serial lies on television about the Benghazi terrorist attack in 2012. Unfortunately indeed, tragically the world today is about as far from a musical comedy as you can get, with terrorists rampaging across...

    Senior officials in both the State Department and White House denied on Sunday evening reports in the Israeli media that the Obama administration is punishing Israel for Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahus speech to Congress and has stopped sharing information with Israel about the nuclear talks with Iran. The report on Channel 2 News stated that Undersecretary of State Wendy Sherman, who is in charge of the nuclear talks with Iran, has announced that she is no longer briefing Israel about the talks, because the Israeli government is using the information in a manipulative and political way. Susan Rice, Obama's national...

    The Pentagon brass placed in charge of implementing Obamas war against ISIS are getting fed up with the short leash the White House put them on. Top military leaders in the Pentagon and in the field are growing increasingly frustrated by the tight constraints the White House has placed on the plans to fight ISIS and train a new Syrian rebel army. As the American-led battle against ISIS stretches into its fourth month, the generals and Pentagon officials leading the air campaign and preparing to train Syrian rebels are working under strict White House orders to keep the war contained...

The report repeats the claim on two other occasions, referring in...

They have not sat down and said this is where we want to go and this is how we want to do it. And the measure of...

    Relax America, we now have an official national security strategy. President Obama delivered a long-overdue national security strategy document to Congress Friday, emphasizing diplomacy over military power and warning against American over-reach in world affairs. The 35-page policy document released yesterday tweaks our previous strategy of Leading From Behind (LFB). You may recall that the primary tactic of that successful strategy was dont do stupid stuff. As that proved inordinately more difficult to implement than we had HOPE-d, weve augmented it with our new strategy of dont do anything. Its an extension of our popular wait and see attitude...

    U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice said Friday that President Obamas Washington critics often lack perspective and that the U.S. no longer faces threats akin to World War II. Too often, whats missing here in Washington is a sense of perspective. Yes, there is a lot going on. Still, while the dangers we face may be more numerous and varied, they are not of the existential nature we confronted during World War II or during the Cold War, Ms. Rice said at the Brookings Institution in Washington, The Hill reported.
