    Critics have begun using the words “war crime” to describe a US airstrike in Kunduz that hit a Doctors Without Borders facility, killing 22 people, including children. The US pushed back against the allegations, claiming that they were responding to a call for close air support from Afghan forces and did not know of any civilian medical facilities in the area: Afghan forces called for U.S. air support while fighting the Taliban in Kunduz shortly before a hospital was struck, killing 22 people, the U.S. commander of international forces in Afghanistan said on Monday. …“We have now learned that on...

    The United Nations Human Rights Council has once again leveled violations of international law against Israel, this time for its incursion into Gaza during "Operation Protective Edge" in July 2014. The report paints Israel as child-abusers for terrorizing Palestinian children. They have the story right but, they've got the offenders reversed. Since its inception in 2006, the UNHRC has obsessed over Israel, criticizing it 27 times--far more than any other country in the world.

The UN sent investigators to Syria and Iraq last year after the terrorist group started to pummel through Syria. The evidence they found since last June led them to believe the abuses may amount to war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide.

We do not even understand the idea. In the past year, President Obama has referred to the Islamic State, variously, as...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: So the JV team has beheaded an American reporter, a photojournalist, actually, James Foley, beheaded on videotape. Mr. Snerdley said that he looked at it. I did not. I haven't. I saw Daniel Pearl, the video of that. I didn't go look at this. They're threatening to behead yet another American journalist, the JV team. Obama called ISIS the JV team. Yeah, within the past couple of weeks or something. He found out about it on the way back to vacation on Martha's Vineyard. He was in the air when he found out about it. He stayed...

    The European Centre for Law and Justice has hit back against the International Red Cross for insinuating that Israel is committing war crimes in Gaza, arguing that it is the terrorist tactics of Palestinian militant group Hamas that are in clear violation of international law."It is deeply disturbing that the International Red Cross, which should be an objective relief organization, is engaging in an unbalanced and biased campaign to smear Israel," wrote Jay Sekulow, who serves as Chief Counsel of the ECLJ as well as the American Center for Law and Justice."While insinuating that Israel is committing war crimes as...

    In an attempt to protect their secrets from being revealed to the Israeli security forces, Hamas has executed tens of Gazan tunnel diggers in the last few weeks. The mass execution is said to have taken place after attempts from Hamas to make sure that the excavators knew nothing of the locations in which they were digging. According to the Israeli website Mako, extreme precautions were used by Hamas. They would take the diggers, about a hundred men, in vans with blindfolds so that they wouldnt know the location of the tunnels and at the end of the day would...

    Before leaving for vacation on Saturday, President Obama spoke briefly about the genocidal Islamist terrorists who are taking over large swaths of Iraq. When one reporter asked the president if he regretted not leaving any U.S. troops in Iraq, Obama replied that that wasn't even an option: Q Mr. President, do you have any second thoughts about pulling all ground troops out of Iraq? And does it give you pause as the U.S. -- is it doing the same thing in Afghanistan? THE PRESIDENT: What I just find interesting is the degree to which this issue keeps on coming up,...
  • Extraordinarily Irresponsible Obama Gives Pointless, Yet Damaging, Press Conference

    President Obama gave a press conference this evening. He started a little over an hour late without explanation. Reporters stuck to asking questions that they evidently knew Obama would be comfortable answering. None of them asked him about any of his administration scandals. ABCs Jon Karl, usually a tough questioner of Obama and his spokesmen, asked a rambling question that played right into the Democrats economic patriotism canard. Despite the fact that the president showed a passionless, bloodless, disinterested face to the world, he still managed to do some damage. Chris Jansing of CNN asked Obama if the sanctions against...

    Folks. Ross Perot was lambasted for using the term. Now the president uses it as often as the you can keep and period verbiage. As always and forevermore, it is not what is said, but who says it. Folks. As if those who went through enhanced interrogations were snatched from a Norman Rockwell scene and placed on a waterboard. Hardly. The president, and the attorney general, still seem bent on proving that the Bush administration engaged in torture. We seem to forget the moment in history in which the procedures in question were conducted. Did Obama and Holder see the...
