  • 'There Can Be Only One Response': Putin Reacts to Assassination of Russian Ambassador

    12/20/2016 7:42:35 AM PST · by Kaslin · 156 replies ^ | December 20, 2016 | Cortney O'Brien
    Russian President Vladimir Putin joins a host of world leaders who have had to respond to brazen terror attacks on Monday. One of those attacks happened in Ankara, Turkey, where Russian Ambassador Andrey Karlov was killed in cold blood by a police officer who was standing behind him during a speech in an art gallery. After he shot Karlov several times in the back, the killer screamed that he did it for Aleppo. The entire attack was caught on camera. Putin has vowed revenge. "A crime has been committed and it was without doubt a provocation aimed at spoiling the...

    There was no ceremony to honour Vincent and Cirillo because Trudeau, like Papa Pierre before him, hates the military The Liberal government of Justin Trudeau had no intention of marking the anniversaries of the deaths of two Canadian soldiers who were killed by Islamic terrorists within two days of each other in October 2014. Much like a new WikiLeaks dump about Hillary and the DNC, it may seem shocking at first but it really isn’t. While the rest of the mainstream media appeared to ignore whether or not the anniversaries of the soldiers’ deaths would be marked, Kris Sims of...

    Rudy Giuliani attack current Mayor Bill de Blasio for the way he responded to the bomb attack in New York City over the weekend. Rudy Giuliani, who earned the title of America's mayor for his handling of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, on Monday excoriated current New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio for looking like he was "kind of on Mars" during the early reaction to a weekend bomb attack. "He looked like he didn't know what he was doing," Giuliani told Circa in an interview when asked about de Blasio's initial response to an attack that wounded 29...

    The United States could be on the verge of posthumously awarding its highest military honor to a soldier who was killed in action in Afghanistan – and the news is stirring controversy. Sgt. John Chapman, an air force technician who was serving as a radioman for the elite SEAL Team 6 during mission in Afghanistan, died in fierce combat against Al Qaeda gunmen on an Afghan mountaintop on March 4, 2002. The Americans led a coalition of nations in the military effort to destroy Al Qaeda and the Taliban following the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.

    The Iowa Democratic caucus which I've already described as akin to the Marxist Zimbabwe Farmers-workers confabs is over, and it appears -- as Mark Steyn ably notes -- "almost certain" that Hillary Clinton did not win it. If Iowa were one of those banana republics in which the president-for-life has been prevailed upon to hold an election and Jimmy Carter and a bunch of UN observers had flown in to certify it, none of the above would pass muster. But in the Democrat Party it does:[snip] In effect, Hillary and Bernie fought Iowa to a draw. But a miss is...

    In the wee hours of July 4, FBI counterterrorism agents in the Boston area scrambled to thwart the last of a string of Islamic State terror plots they feared could be conducted during the patriotic holiday or soon after. Just weeks earlier, an agent and Boston officers had shot and killed an ISIS sympathizer on the same streets, right before he boarded a bus armed with a military-style knife and plans to attack cops and behead a woman. Officials familiar with the bureau's preparations, speaking only on condition of anonymity, said Director James Comey has put a brave public face...

    Sand, meet head of Hollande. In his just-concluded speech on the terrorist attacks in his country, French President Francois Hollande claimed that the terrorists "have nothing to do with the Muslim religion." Of course. Terrorists run through Charlie Hebdo, shouting "allahu akbar" as they murder, and proclaim themselves to be acting in the name of al qaeda of Yemen. Why would anyone think this had anything to do with the Muslim religion? As my MRC colleague Rich Noyes observed, Hollande must watch MSNBC [where Howard Dean expressed a similar sentiment.] View the video here.

    Israel has accepted a request by UN envoy Robert Serry to enact a six-hour "humanitarian ceasefire" starting Thursday morning. Serry submitted the request to both the Israeli government and Hamas on Wednesday evening in order to allow humanitarian aid into the Gaza Strip; while Israel accepted immediately, Hamas has yet to respond. It comes as efforts continue to broker a more long-term truce after Hamas rejected an Egyptian-brokered ceasefire agreement Tuesday morning, and responded by escalating its rocket fire against Israeli civilians. One Israeli man, 38-year-old father of three Dror Hanin, was killed in a mortar attack near the Erez...

    Neil Young and Crazy Horse have cancelled a 17 July concert in Israel, citing "tensions which have rendered the event unsafe". As the region shudders with rocket explosions and missile attacks, the musicians said they "look forward to playing in Israel and Palestine in peace". "It is with heavy hearts and deep sadness that we must cancel our one and only Israeli concert," Young and his band said in a statement. Some 30,000 people had bought tickets to the gig at Tel Aviv's Hayarkon Park – the singer's first Israeli show in almost two decades. According to Reuters, the decision...

    Even by the low standards of Congress, Loretta Sanchez’s performance ranks as a disgrace. The Democrat from California managed — in just a few minutes — to turn the congressional investigation of the marathon terror bombings into a political hatchet job, while demonstrating her complete ignorance of basic facts of the case. Sanchez somehow butchered the names of the alleged terror bombers not once, but three times, calling the Tsarnaev brothers “Tsarnavar,” then “Tsarnev,” and finally “Tsarnov.” “There are still unanswered questions about the Tsarnavar brothers,” the tongue-tied congresswoman said. Yes, like, how to pronounce the names of the terrorists....

    The Islamist militant group Boko Haram has conducted terrorist attacks in Nigeria that bring it closer to al Qaeda in northern Mali, making linkages between the groups more likely and more dangerous, according to a paper published by the Combating Terrorism Center. In the past year, Boko Haram has carried out several large-scale attacks across a 900-mile swath of Nigeria, roughly the distance between New York City and Atlanta, the paper states. That puts the Nigerian extremists just 300 miles from northern Mali, which is controlled by al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) and other affiliated groups. Boko Haram,...

    A New York City community leader has an interesting (albeit naďve) idea that’s never going to happen, but it could spark some illuminating dialogue in the Ground Zero Mosque controversy. Julie, Menin, chair of the city’s community board has suggested that the embattled $100 million, 13-story Islamic “cultural center” be “transformed into an inter-faith center for reconciliation… to be shared by Muslims, Christians and Jews.” That should go over just fine with the Ground Zero Mosque Imam Faisal Abdul Rauf, since he has already announced to the world that he considers himself “a Jew.” A declaration that liberal journalists like...

"What happened after the 11th of September was beyond their imagination, " says Benotman, who adds that al-Qaida thought the U.S. was a "paper tiger."

    A Day to Remember Like every American I remember exactly what I was doing when the second plane hit the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. I was on the treadmill in my bedroom a little before 6 a.m., watching the stock market open, the futures soaring until a report that a plane had flown into the North Tower of the World Trade Center at 8:46 (EST). At that point there was only conjecture; a stray commuter plane the most popular theory. Live shots of the gaping hole and the billows of smoke but still no answers. At...

Let’s imagine we’ve captured a highly trained terrorist al-Qaeda was attempting to embed in the United States, ŕ la Mohamed Atta and company, to carry out mass-murder attacks in American cities. For eight years, our national-security debate in the United States has been divided into two camps on these cases. In the first are those who accept the post-9/11 law-of-war paradigm. They would have that enemy combatant detained for intelligence purposes (and to remove him from the battlefield) until he could be tried for war crimes by...

    Two days removed from the latest 9/11 anniversary commemorations, I wonder if it’s too much to ask that this anniversary be the last. Are we going to do this every year forever? America loves anniversaries, and the news media find it easier to write stories about them than to report what’s happening, say, now. But the somber, sad, reverent ceremonies every year are not helping America win this battle. We don’t need any more moments of silence or roll calls of the dead. We’ve done it every year for five years now. Enough already. There are those who would like...

    Surprise is what intelligence is intended to prevent, but on Sept. 11, 2001, our nation was surprised, and the results were tragic. Now the fifth anniversary of those horrific events raises anew the question: Is our nation's intelligence community better prepared to keep America safe? The answer is yes. U.S. intelligence has made major advances since that Sept. 11. First and foremost, we better understand, and are aligned to meet, the threat of transnational terror. Although our enemy is constantly changing and remains deadly, our collectors and analysts are carefully tracking the evolution of al-Qaeda and its ideological allies. Today,...

Using the word "terrorist" to describe attacks on civilians, BBC management argued in a paper released June 19, would make the "very value judgments" it had been asked to eschew. An independent panel in May found the BBC's reporting from Israel did "not consistently constitute a full and fair account of the conflict but rather,...

Greece's U.N. Ambassador Adamantios Vassilakis, the council president for July, requested the meeting soon after the four blasts rocked London, his spokesman said.

    In a movie that's being described as "the feel-good al-Qaida date flick of 2005," Bush-hating actor Sean Penn will star as a suicidal hijacker who tries to crash a commercial airliner into Bush's official residence, the White House. The Penn presidential assassination movie is fiction, of course, as clearly indicated by the title: "The Assassination of President Nixon." Still, Penn's decision to make a film that parallels the only part of the 9/11 attacks that wasn't successfully executed (thanks to the brave passengers aboard United Flight 93) has even Bush-hating Hollywood nervous.

    The White House in the early days of the Bush administration was fully aware a terrorist attack in America was possible, and terrorism was a major concern for the president, Secretary of State Colin Powell told members of a special commission here today. Powell told the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States that the president knew terrorism would be a major concern, just as it had been for the Clinton administration. "Early on, we made clear to the Congress and to the American people that we understood the scope and compelling nature of threat from terrorism," Powell...

    WASHINGTON, Nov. 7 — The federal commission investigating the Sept. 11 attacks stepped up pressure on the Bush administration to cooperate by issuing a subpoena on Friday to the Pentagon. Members said they were still weighing a subpoena to the administration for Oval Office documents President Bush received in the days before Sept. 11, 2001, although the panel chose not to issue one today. The 10-member panel said in a statement that it had encountered "serious delays" in obtaining information from the Defense Department. It voted to subpoena the Pentagon for documents, tapes and transcripts involving the actions of the...

    <p>Former President Bill Clinton yesterday said he had been "demonized" for trying to change the nation's health care system, and called for an attempt to find a "bipartisan solution" to improve health care in the country.</p> <p>"I think it's quite interesting that the worst congressional losses that the Democrats suffered in the last 60 years was the midterm for Harry Truman and my first midterm, and it both happened after we tried to fix health care and we were demonized" for trying to have the government pay for it, Mr. Clinton said.</p>

I no longer have any links to the original or any of the other mirrors (there were several of us). The archive includes images, screen-captures and several videos in .avi format.
  • Is it really breaking news? (yes, it is)

    Recent threads have informed us (freepers) of the video tapes found containing plots for kidnappings, raids, and assassinations. It was to my great surprise when I found that there were some fellow freepers who were skeptical about it. A few did not even seem to be concerned. Some commented that these (very informative, in my opinion) threads were not worthy of being called "breaking news". I can't help but wonder--if it's not breaking news now then when will it be? When terrorrists invade our homes, schools and offices and perform residential assassinations? When they convert our neighborhoods into a mass...

    Nickles criticizes Clinton on attacks 2002-05-26 By Chris Casteel The Oklahoman WASHINGTON -- Any investigation of the Bush administration's response to terrorist threats should include an examination of the attacks launched against the United States during Bill Clinton's presidency, Sen. Don Nickles said. Nickles, R-Ponca City, said he was "furious" when Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton recently gave a speech on the Senate floor and quoted a New York City tabloid questioning what President Bush knew before Sept. 11 about possible terrorist activity. "I just thought it was very inappropriate," Nickles, the assistant Republican leader, said last week. The United States...

    NEW YORK -- Thomas Beller is the scruffy, scattered personification of West Village cool. He's written a pair of acclaimed books of fiction, runs an avant-garde literary magazine, and edits a website, which publishes true stories set all over the city's five boroughs and has tapped into the zeitgeist in a way that few media outlets have done since Sept. 11. His hair is often a mess, and his unbuttoned collar flapped in the spring breeze Thursday as he talked about being a New Yorker put, once again, on "terror alert" by his government. "There was a moment - the...
