    New York - In a secret deal, Pakistan allowed American drone strikes on its soil on the condition that the unmanned aircraft would stay away from its nuclear facilities and the mountain camps where Kashmiri militants were trained for attacks in India, according to a media report. Under secret negotiations between Pakistani intelligence agency ISI and America's CIA during 2004, the terms of the bargain were set, the New York Times reported today. "Pakistani intelligence officials insisted that drones fly only in narrow parts of the tribal areas - ensuring that they would not venture where Islamabad did not want...

    Texas-Mexico Border It's not a sales pitch heard too often in the Rio Grande Valley. Farmers and ranchers here — used to haggling over the price of feed, irrigation rights and labor costs — have a new, tax-deductible option for improving their businesses. And the company offering it promises to take a bullet for its client. International Security Agency, a private security firm with offices in Colorado and Houston, announced last week in McAllen that it has received the required licenses from the Texas Department of Public Safety to operate locally. Its mission is to stop cartel-style violence in the...

    The US Report ^ | 5 Nov 2010 | Chris Carter
    The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors approved an extension for the Islamic Saudi Academy (ISA), an Islamic high school in Alexandria, Virginia. The school operates under the authority of the Saudi Arabian government. In 2008, ISA was cited for using textbooks calling for violence against non-Muslims. Fairfax County, a federal agency on religious freedom and the US Senate all urged the State Department to take action regarding ISA's textbooks, but State did not act.[i]ISA claimed to have updated their texts, however, those who reviewed the textbooks were paid by the school.[ii]Numerous ISA graduates have gone on to pursue jihadist activities...

    In Northern Virginia, a private school needed the local county's approval to expand to serve more students. This would have hardly raised an eyebrow had it not been for one particular detail: The school is Islamic, funded by the government of Saudi Arabia. The Islamic Saudi Academy, located in Fairfax County, has long been under the microscope of its opponents. But for residents along the two-lane country road where the school sits, the debate was transformed from a local land-use issue into a heated discussion about the school, its teachings and the relationships between Muslims and non-Muslims in the United...

Host Tucker Carlson, asked experts, teachers, publishers and parents the same question: "Do you know what is inside your children's textbooks?" From kindergarten through college, we found staggering errors and omissions which may be pushing agendas, hidden and otherwise. We spoke to the author of “The Language Police,” education historian Diane Ravitch, who said textbook publishers censor images or words they deem to be controversial in children’s textbooks. She told us that publishers pander to special...

  • Expansion of Islamic Saudi Academy in Virginia Approved, Outraging Opponents

    A controversial Saudi-funded academy that teaches strict adherence to traditional Islamic law has been given the green light to expand its Virginia campus — a decision by local officials that infuriates opponents who say the school's teachings are anti-American. The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors voted 6-4 Monday to grant a zoning exemption to the Islamic Saudi Academy. The officials said the outcome was based strictly on zoning issues, not on what goes on in the school's classrooms. That left some in the community outraged. "How could they ... say they are such fine students? They are fine students but...

    A coalition of concerned citizens is contemplating its next move now that the Fairfax County (Virginia) Board of Supervisors has granted a Saudi-funded Islamic academy a zoning exemption to allow it to expand its facility. The Virginia Anti-Shariah Task Force (VAST) had lobbied hard against the move. But on Monday, by a 6-4 vote, the Fairfax County supervisors sided with the Islamic Saudi Academy which had requested a zoning exemption to expand its 34-acre campus to accommodate 200 additional students. While there were some concerns about added traffic problems, the Virginia Anti-Sharia Task Force voiced its concerns about the curriculum...

    A Fairfax, Va., school said to be linked to terrorism teachings was given the go-ahead to expand its campus, Monday. The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors approved the Islamic Saudi Acedemy's request by a 6-4 vote. The Saudi-owned college preparatory school is supported by the Saudi government and has been proven to teach Islam's radical Shariah law. Now, Christians say they have had enough. By law, the academy's request to expand is a land use case. "But of course, that ignores the 800 pound gorilla that has come with this land use case," said county supervisor John Foust. Members of...

    A Saudi-funded academy was granted a zoning exemption Monday that allows it to expand at its 34-acre Popes Head Road campus in Fairfax County, culminating a years-long campaign to enlarge the school at that location...The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors, whose permission was required for the expansion, stressed Monday that the 6 to 4 decision was based on zoning questions, not on what happens in the school's classrooms. "The community will get an awful lot of development," said Penelope A. Gross (D-Mason). "I think [it] will improve the community." The academy, founded in 1984, has about 1,000 students in pre-kindergarten...

    For nearly 25 years, the Islamic Saudi Academy (ISA), the Virginia school founded by royal decree of Saudi King Fahd in 1984, immersed students of its Islamic-studies curriculum in the same Wahhabi interpretation of Islam that is taught in Saudi Arabia and in Saudi-funded madrassas around the world. That curriculum includes praise for militant jihad to “spread the faith” and permission for the killing of various categories of “unbelievers,” as well as other endorsements of religious intolerance. Now, as it seeks permission from Fairfax County to expand its operations, ISA claims that, over the last school year, it replaced the...

    Ahmed Omar Abu Ali, a Falls Church man and a member of al Qaeda who admitted he was planning to assassinate then-President George W. Bush, was sentenced to life in prison Monday at federal court in Alexandria. Abu Ali was originally sentenced in 2005 to 30 years in prison. U.S. Judge Gerald Bruce Lee of the U.S. District Court for eastern Virginia ruled Monday that Abu Ali should spend life in prison partially because he never renounced his al Qaeda ties. After the initial sentencing, both sides filed appeals. Abu Ali completed some of his sentence in solitary confinement at...

    Last month, a Saudi Arabian man named Raed Abdul-Rahman Al-Saif, placed three bags on the Tampa, Florida airport security conveyor belt as he made his way toward his gate to board US Airways flight 1077 to Phoenix, Arizona and Portland, Oregon. He never made it to the gate. A Transportation Security Administration representative saw something on his screen that made him curious. Upon further investigation, TSA officers found a knife “artfully concealed between the outside fabric and the expandable pull handles of the bag.” This bag, by the way, would have been easily accessed by Al-Saif had he made it...
