    On the eve of what’s expected to be the most-traveled holiday for Americans in a decade, President Obama’s national security advisers told him Tuesday that there is no specific, credible threat from the Islamic State extremists who carried out the deadly attacks in Paris.Mr. Obama met with his national security council at the White House to discuss the response to the Paris killing spree on Nov. 13 and other attacks by the militants. The advisers told the president there is no known threat to the homeland from the extremist group, also known by the acronym ISIL.The president has been urging...

    The Islamic State has likely radicalized thousands of people in the United States, according to a new report, raising concerns that supporters of the terrorist group could be plotting domestic attacks similar to the recent shootings and bombings in Paris.The Threat Knowledge Group, an organization led by the counterterrorism experts Sebastian and Katharine Gorka, has compiled a list of 82 individuals in the United States who were affiliated with the Islamic State (also known as ISIS or ISIL) and apprehended by law enforcement officials, including those who traveled or attempted to travel to Iraq and Syria, launched domestic attacks, or...

Since the Islamic State attacks in Paris on November 13, we have seen the development of a new, and strange justification for the Obama administration’s insistent refusal to jettison its manifestly failed strategy of contending with IS specifically and with Islamic terrorism generally.

Ken Isaacs, vice president of programs and government relations for Samaritan’s Purse, spent a week in Greece, where the Christian organization has deployed employees and contractors to the region to assist scores of refugees flowing into the country, with hopes of continuing deeper into Europe. There, the group’s workers meet refugees arriving by rubber rafts on Greek islands and provide...

    According to an Austrian publication, the parents of Samra Kesinovic have received bad news. Their daughter, who was radicalized in Vienna, ran away to join ISIS fighters in Syria when she was just 17. Her friend, Sabina Selimovic, was 15 when she disappeared. Both girls were the children of Bosnian refugees who had fled to Austria during the Chechen war. The two girls later appeared on social media, carrying Kalashnikov rifles and surrounded by armed ISIS militants. Their pictures were used as a recruitment tool for other young women who would also leave home to become ISIS brides. About a...

The Liberal government, which had pledged to take in the full number of refugees this year, said another 15,000 would now arrive in 2016, by the end of February.

If Russia were going after the Islamic State instead, Mr. Obama said, such mistakes "are less likely to occur." He said it’s important for Turkish and Russian officials to communicate and to "discourage any kind of escalation." French President Francois Hollande called the incident "a serious one." "We must prevent an escalation," he said. Mr. Obama said the U.S. is still gathering facts of the shoot-down, but said Turkey "has a right to...

    CNN’s Christiane Amanpour believes "we can all afford to be human" regarding the Syrian refugees. Recently, she condemned the U.S. and other countries for not letting them enter the homeland, despite FBI Director James Comey's testimony explaining that vetting this population is literally impossible.Apparently, "discerning" does not qualify as a human trait to Amanpour. Because soon after she offered her ill-considered, slanderous logic equating "responsible" with "heartless," she employed this advice in her own decision-making -- and she was taken.Amanpour demonstrated exactly how Islamic radicals have learned to take advantage of those bearing her viewpoint.Last Thursday, Amanpour invited Dalil Boubakeur,...

    A Russian rescue helicopter has been shot down by Syrian rebels while searching for pilots missing after Turkey downed a Russian jet. The helicopter was forced to make an emergency landing in a government-held area in Syria's Latakia province. A Syrian insurgent group, which uses U.S. Tow missiles, said its fighters hit the helicopter with an anti-tank missile. Video footage has emerged online appearing to show the helicopter after it crashed in dense woodland. Plumes of smoke can be seen coming from the aircraft.

    President Obama and French President François Hollande promised to increase cooperation and expand attacks against the Islamic State in Syria and Iraq. During a joint press conference with Hollande at the White House, Obama said that the United States and France "owe our freedom to each other." After the Paris attacks, Obama said, "our hearts broke too." "In that stadium, concert hall, restaurants and cafes we see our own," Obama said. "Today we stand with you." Hollande arrived in Washington on Tuesday to talk to Obama about building a more robust international coalition to combat ISIS. Hollande is trying to...

    My sympathy and empathy for those in Paris is not without a certain degree of confusion. I must admit that a "War On" and a "War With" brings certain differences that must be explained and hopefully understood. We have been engaged for several years in a "War On" drugs and also a "War On" obesity. Both seem to be sliding off the front pages as it would appear, by simple observation, that the battles are being lost. One could include in that group poverty, ignorance and even ethnic fatherhood. A "War On" something allows the net to be cast far...

    The U.S. military on Tuesday labeled as an "incursion" the Russian fighter jet that was shot down by Turkish aircraft over the Syria-Turkey border. Army Col. Steve Warren, the top military spokesman in Baghdad, confirmed the Turk's version of events in saying they repeatedly warned the two Russian SU-24 pilots to back off. Col. Warren used the word "incursion" to describe the Russian flight, but also said the command was studying radars and other data, such as radio chatter, to make a definite conclusion. The incident happened at the border," Col. Warren said. "These things are not as clean as...

    All anti-Western movements - including jihadist movements - are legitimate responses to what Obama perceives as the crime of Western power. Since the Islamic State attacks in Paris on November 13, we have seen the development of a new, and strange justification for the Obama administration's insistent refusal to jettison its manifestly failed strategy of contending with IS specifically and with Islamic terrorism generally. In broad terms, Obama's strategy for dealing with radical Islamic terrorism and jihadist movements is to ignore their motivating ideologies, take minimal action to combat them, criticize other governments for failing to destroy IS and its...

    Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump said Monday he not only would bring back waterboarding, the controversial interrogation technique discontinued by the Obama administration, but also would "approve more than that," even if such tactics prove ineffective. "Would I approve waterboarding? You bet your ass I would -- in a heartbeat," Trump said to loud cheers during a rally at a convention center here Monday night that attracted thousands. "And I would approve more than that. Don't kid yourself, folks. It works, okay? It works. Only a stupid person would say it doesn't work." Trump said such techniques are needed to...
