    [1]Among the latest six Jihadis freed by Obama from Gitmo as part of his mission is Saad Masir Mukbl al Azani.There are obvious reasons for freeing Saad1. He was identified as a high level Al Qaeda member by other captured terrorists.2. He issued fatwas while allegedly sitting on the fatwa committee with Osama bin Laden’s religious advisor. That may sound non-violent to the religion of peace types, but it meant he was providing the rationale for terrorist attacks.3. He helped indoctrinate Al Qaeda terrorists by teaching them the Koran.I’m sure that being loose he will in no way go...

    A component of the forthcoming agreement between the US and Iran on nuclear weapons development is the US release of Iranian funds that have been frozen in US banks. GOP critics of the agreement fear that these funds will be used to aid terrorist attacks in the Middle East and elsewhere. Press Secretary Josh Earnest mocked these fears as paranoid delusions. It would make no sense for the Iranians to besmirch the rapport our two countries have worked so hard to achieve by stabbing us in the back with such a duplicitous response to our generosity.

    Reports on the terrorist attack on the "Draw Muhammed" art competition in Garland, Texas indicate that the two jihadis, armed with "assault rifles" and wearing "protective gear," were very quickly neutralized (within seconds of initiating their attack) by a Garland traffic cop armed with only a handgun. The bad guys rolled up at the site, exited their vehicle, and immediately opened fire on a police car at the entrance. They were able only to wound an unarmed security officer before the traffic officer engaged them and terminated the threat (and, in the process, their worthless lives).

Bowe Bergdahl, with the agreement governing their supervised release soon set to expire. The Washington Post reported that talks began Thursday, and could lead to some aspects of the security arrangement being extended. That pact -- which keeps the former Guantanamo inmates under supervision in Qatar and prohibits them from leaving the country -- is set to expire at the end of May, raising concerns in Washington that they could soon return...

Former Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel had initially pledged to respond to questions, when lawmakers first demanded to know why the Pentagon had not given Congress the requisite 30-day notice before proceeding with the May 31 prisoner trade. But nearly a year later, the Pentagon has released only a trickle of highly redacted emails from before the swap. Republican lawmakers now plan to attempt the unusual step of...

    Can the president kill you? The short answer is: Yes, but not legally. Yet, President Obama has established a secret process that involves officials from the Departments of Justice and Defense, the CIA, and the White House senior staff whereby candidates are proposed for execution, and the collective wisdom of the officials then recommends execution to the president, who then accepts or rejects the recommendation. If the recommendation is to kill and the president rejects the recommendation, the CIA is directed to arrest the person. If the president accepts the recommendation to kill, then death is ordered. This is not...

There would also be welfare penalties to encourage people to learn English, in order to improve integration, and tighter rules on granting citizenship to ensure newcomers embrace "British values", the broadsheet said.

    ALMOST all of the wannabe terrorists who have snuck out of Australia to join jihadist armies in Iraq and Syria were on the dole or some form of welfare payment, The Saturday Telegraph can reveal. A federal investigation into the welfare status of Australian foreign fighters, prompted last year by revelations in The Telegraph, shows 96 per cent had been on welfare benefits when they fled to the Middle East. Most had continued to collect payments from Australian taxpayers while training with Islamic State to become terrorists intent on wanting to kill Australians. The investigation has captured the records of...

    Somali Terrorist Group Targets Western Shopping Malls In Call For Lone Wolf Attacks By Angelo Young The al Qaeda branch in Somalia released a video Saturday celebrating the September 2013 attack on the Westgate shopping mall in Nairobi, Kenya, that killed 60 people in a four-day siege. In the 66-minute video, unleashed on Twitter in both English and Arabic, al-Shabab called for attacks on specific targets in the U.S., Canada and Britain. If just a handful of mujahedeen [militant jihadists] fighters could bring Kenya to a complete standstill for nearly a week, just imagine what the dedicated mujahedeen could do...

    ISIS has released a videotape of the public beheading of twenty-one Coptic Christians somewhere along the coast of Libya. I hate to admit it, but I didnt even know what a Coptic Christian was. So I looked it up. Coptic means Egyptian and Christians living in Egypt identify themselves as Coptic Christians. Pretty simple. Copts were organized between A.D. 42 A.D. 62 and consider John Mark, the author of the Gospel of Mark, to be their founder. Over the years, Egypt fell under the colonial rule of Italy which demanded loyalty to Roman rulers. The Copts refused to show...

    RUSH: First of some sound bites, President Obama at the White House summit at the State Department on Countering Violent Extremism, but don't anybody call it "Islam" or "Muslim." OBAMA: There is a complicated history between the Middle East, the West, and none of us I think should be immune from criticism in terms of specific policies. But the notion that the West is at war with Islam is an ugly lie. And all of us, regardless of our faith, have a responsibility to reject it. RUSH: This is a great lesson in Straw Man 101. Can anybody -- search...

    Our country is in danger. Our President is asleep at his Post. Our Military is restrained. What can we do? I am being encouraged to ask the FReeper Community to direct their Church's Ministorial Staff to direct the total Congregation to solicit our Federal Government to act quickly and decisively against the ISIS Islamic Terrorists. I believe we need to act as the Christian Crusaders did against Islamic Terrorists hundreds of years ago. The ISIS Islamic Terrorists must be totally eliminated for the good of Christianity and the World.

    As the White House kicks off day-two of a summit on combating generic violent extremism, President Obama has published an op-ed in the Los Angeles Times titled, "Our fight against violent extremism." While the administration has overtly refused to specifically name "Islamic" terror, the piece finally acknowledges (albeit inadvertently) the regular existence of violence inside Islam. Still, Islamic extremism isn't specifically named and won't be during the three-day conference at the White House this week.The United States has made significant gains against terrorism. We've decimated the core al Qaeda leadership, strengthened homeland security and worked to prevent another large-scale attack...

    Right now, the Administration has a budding PR problem with their Middle East policy, so it makes sense that the man himself would take to the media to attempt to explain what theyre thinking with this strategy. What doesnt make sense is that the finished product would clash so fundamentally with what the American people actually need to hear. From Obama's op-ed.. "More broadly, groups like al Qaeda and ISIL exploit the anger that festers when people feel that injustice and corruption leave them with no chance of improving their lives. The world has to offer todays youth something better....

    President Obama on Wednesday said he doesnt describe the United States as being at war with radical Islam because he doesnt want to give undue credit to the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS). Theyre not religious leaders, theyre terrorists, Obama said of ISIS in remarks at the White Houses summit on countering violent extremism. Obama argued that ISIS wants to present itself as representing a religion, which is why they refer to themselves as the Islamic State. He argued the U.S. and its allies need to do everything they can to discredit that idea. The presidents comments were...
