    Taleban hang 7-year-old boy to punish family Jerome Starkey, Kandahar A seven-year-old boy was executed by the Taleban in a brutal act of retribution this week, after his grandfather dared to resist the insurgency’s iron rule. Afghan officials said the boy was accused of spying for US and Nato forces and hanged from a tree in southern Afghanistan. Daoud Ahmadi, the spokesman for Helmand’s provincial governor, said the murder came just days after the boy’s grandfather, Abdul Woodod Alokozai, spoke out against militants in their hometown. “I know his father and I know his grandfather,” Mr Ahmadi said. “His grandfather...

    FORT WORTH, Texas (Associated Press) -- An attorney says the Army psychiatrist charged in the worst mass shooting on a U.S. military base will soon be moved to a county jail near Fort Hood after four months in a military hospital. Defense attorney John Galligan says Maj. Nidal Hasan could be moved this week. Bell County Jail administrator Bob Patterson says Hasan will be housed in a cell at the medical unit. Patterson said Monday the facility is prepared to handle inmates with special medical needs.

    War On Terror: The Justice Department employs nine lawyers previously involved in the defense of terrorist detainees. This is a colossal conflict of interest. Just whose side are they on? From the dropping of a voter-intimidation case against the New Black Panther Party to the decision to try 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheik Muhammed in a civilian court within blocks of where the World Trade Center once stood, the actions and attitudes of the Justice Department and Attorney General Eric Holder toward the thugs and terrorists who threaten us has grown curiouser and curiouser. We may now have a clue as...
  • Religious “Truth” Commission to Examine U.S. War “Atrocities”

    In a 40 year flashback to the glories of 1960’s anti-war outrage, infamously left-wing Riverside Church in New York City is hosting a “Truth Commission on Conscience in War” next month. This special hearing, in the spirit of “truth commissions,” will evidently “explore and investigate systemic injustices, political violence, and mass atrocities” by the U.S., presumably in both Iraq and Afghanistan. It will “receive testimony, process their findings, and recommend strategies for change, healing, and reconciliation,” while lifting “up the silenced and invisible voices of victims, offering survivors a public forum to testify to their experiences.” The “commissioners” of this...
  • Tony Blair Faces War Crimes Accusations – Are Obama And Holder Taking Aim At Bush/Cheney?

    A twisted drama is playing out in England. The Chilcot Inquiry into the legality or illegality of Britain’s entry into the Iraq War grows uglier by the day. The words “War Criminal” and “War Crimes” are being waved about by Members of Parliament, anti-war activists and British journalists, all directed at former Prime Minister Tony Blair. Blair is scheduled to take the witness stand on Friday. The International Criminal Court (ICC) always waits just across the English Channel in The Netherlands. Members of the Obama administration must certainly be following this Inquiry very closely, especially Attorney General Eric Holder’s Office....

    By Bill Sammon FOXNews.com The House speaker suggests to "FOX News Sunday" that the law might compel Democrats to press forth on some prosecutions of Bush administration officials, saying they may not "have a right to ignore" them. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is receptive to the idea of prosecuting some Bush administration officials, while letting others who are accused of misdeeds leave office without prosecution, she told Chris Wallace in an interview on "FOX News Sunday." "I think you look at each item and see what is a violation of the law and do we even have a right to...

    This week Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas once again honored the memory of the terrorist Dalal Mughrabi - this time by sponsoring a ceremony celebrating the 50th anniversary of her birth. Mughrabi led the worst terror attack in Israel's history in 1978, when she and other terrorists hijacked a bus and killed 37 civilians. Present at the ceremony were Palestinian dignitaries and a children's marching band. Earlier this year, Abbas sponsored a computer center named after Mughrabi.

Details about the attack are still emerging and it was not clear how many people had been injured. One unnamed US official was quoted by Reuters news agency as saying that all of those killed were civilians.

    Dear Supporters, Last Saturday, thousands of people took to the streets of New York City to protest Attorney General Eric Holder's outrageous plan to transfer 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four other admitted war criminals to the United States for trial in a civilian court in New York City. The protest sent a clear message to the politicians in Washington: the terrorists who targeted innocent men, women and children and who were captured by our military on a foreign battlefield should not have the same rights and legal protections as American citizens. We will fight them all the way!watch...

    A year is too long to spend at a crime scene with people shooting at you. Attorney General Eric Holder made an "unannounced" visit with Assistant U.S. Attorneys in Manhattan yesterday about the planned prosecution there of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four additional 9/11 conspirators. Also yesterday, NBC New York spot polling indicated that 82% became furious when word leaked "a federal grand jury in New York is [secretly] now hearing evidence and testimony" as prosecutors seek a federal indictment of the five. Perhaps coincidentally, one 9/11 family member's commentary appeared and offered, "In four years, America can hold Obama...

Lewis Craparotta, the President and senior member of the Board, who during pre-hearing questioning expressed a personal view that investigating every civilian death is the right approach because “that’s the way to protect Marines,” also failed. Defense attorney LtCol Shelburne had challenged the fact that he was sitting on the Board of Inquiry with a pre-existing opinion of what to do in a similar situation as LtCol Chessani.” Folks, if the defense wanted to disqualify General Craparotta at LtCol.

    Imagine if President Obama went to Oslo next week to receive his Nobel Peace Prize and was arrested for purported war crimes committed by U.S. forces in Afghanistan. This bit of historical irony would be possible under an argument being made by Luis Moreno-Ocampo, chief prosecutor for the International Criminal Court in The Hague. Mr. Ocampo claims jurisdiction over actions of U.S. troops in Afghanistan because Kabul in 2003 acceded to the Rome Statute, which established the court. He said a preliminary examination already is under way regarding possible American culpability in crimes against humanity.
