  • Trump drives press to make a fool of itself over a ... dog

    President Trump has an impressive way of driving his most virulent opponents bonkers. He baits them, he gets a rise out of them, and being pompous nincompoops, they always end up beclowning themselves. He was at it again, still on the dog stories, following the shiv he stuck into the side of Islamofascist terrorists in the wake of the raid he ordered on ISIS chieftain Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi over the weekend, the one that left al-Baghdadi a grease spot on the desert floor. Trump freaked that bunch out earlier by touting and praising the dog who chased the "pious Muslim...

    President Trump wants the heroic dog who cornered the world’s most wanted terrorist to visit the White House. Trump released on Monday night a photo of the dog, whose name has not been declassified. The canine is credited with chasing Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al Baghdadi through an underground tunnel in Syria before the terrorist detonated a suicide vest, killing himself and three of his children. An invite to the White House has not yet been extended to the Belgian Malinois, but Trump wants to meet the canine, a senior administration official told ABC News. Gen. Mark Milley, chairman...

    Initial reports overstated the severity of the dog’s wounds, and she’s already back on duty. And although her name isn’t being released, her face is now famous…Seriously, though, I just have a few questions for this war hero: Who’s a good girl? Are you a good girl? Wanna go outside? Who is a good, good girl? Sorry, cat-lovers, but you’ll never feel this sort of pride. Cats are useless on the battlefield. A cat would’ve just stared at al-Baghdadi as he ran away. A cat might’ve even helped him! Cats are cute, but you just can’t trust ’em when it...

    Don't let their bright eyes, lolling tongues or doggy grins fool you -- Rhino, Rambo and Der aren't your average pups. The four-year-old Belgian Malinoises are retired mine detection dogs who have spent much of their lives working to clear explosives in Syria. Now they're back in the United States, working to transition to civilian life in the hopes of finding new homes. The work of mine detection dogs like Rhino, Rambo and Der have played "a critical role" in helping the recovery of areas liberated from ISIS, Jerry Guilbert, the chief of programs for the Office of Weapons Removal...

    When President Obama signed the 2016 National Defense Authorization Act on the day before Thanksgiving, after originally threatening to veto it, he approved $607 billion in military spending and small yet meaningful changes to how the military handles its retired working dogs, guaranteeing them a return ticket to the United States at the end of their service. Until now the military's policies had resulted in dogs being retired in overseas kennels and sometimes being separated from their handlers in the adoption process. Under the language in the new law, introduced by Rep. Frank LoBiondo (R., N.J.) and Sen. Claire McCaskill...

    The pair served side-by-side in Afghanistan for seven months as an IED detection team Smiling from ear-to-ear, a U.S. military sergeant was reunited with his four-legged best friend Friday: a contract dog that served side-by-side with him in Afghanistan. It is estimated that dogs like Belle save the lives of up to 200 troops during their service. Organizations like the American Humane Association and Mission K-9 Rescue help connect these dogs with service members through generous donations.

    They served in the Civil War. They were there for American soldiers during both world wars. One was even on SEAL Team Six, the military team that killed Osama Bin Laden. But military dogs do not always get to go home with their military handlers after serving together in war. During a Capitol Hill event on Wednesday, legislators argued it should be easier for these veterans to reunite with their dogs.

    BAGHDAD -- These are the dogs of war. At a checkpoint leading to the U.S.-protected Green Zone, Gordy stands sentry. The affable Belgian Malinois has a nose finely tuned to detect the nitrates, plastic explosives, gunpowder and detonation cords that suicide bombers use to blow up people. On a barren stretch of road in northern Iraq, a dog rigged with explosives approaches a group of Iraqi police officers. Detonated by remote control, the bomb tears the dog apart but doesn't harm the cops. In a war where the line between civilian and soldier is blurred, even man's best friend has...
