    The Taliban doubtless said that their governance would be different this time. Developments on the ground, however, tell a different story Three issues have emerged as being of key concern to the United States and the European Union—whose representatives have recently met those of the Taliban-- and members of G-20, in respect of the developments in Afghanistan. These are the humanitarian situation in that country, the danger of its becoming a spawning ground of international Islamist terrorism, as it had become during the earlier Taliban dispensation (1996-2001), and the human rights of all Afghans, particularly women, girls and the minorities....
  • Osama bin Laden BANNED al Qaeda from trying to assassinate Joe Biden because he believed he would be an incompetent president and 'lead the US into a crisis'

    Osama bin Laden banned al Qaeda from assassinating Joe Biden because the Democrat would make an incompetent president and 'lead the US into a crisis'. Bin Laden made the remark in a 2010 letter that was found in a trove of documents at the Pakistan compound where he was killed by US special forces in 2011. The document was first made public in 2012 but has been brought back to light and given new significance amid the chaotic US withdrawal from Afghanistan that has gifted the country back to the Taliban.

    In a sick and twisted Twitter headline the New York Times actually called Osama bin Laden — the evil terrorist mastermind of 9/11 — “a devoted family man.” The former Navy Seal who killed bin Laden, Robert J. O’Neil, called out the Times before somebody on their social media team quickly changed the headline. The original August 3 tweet headline read: “Osama bin Laden, the Fanatical Terrorist and the Devoted Family Man.” O’Neil responded: “Family man. He used his wife as a human shield. Lucky for me he was taller than her.”

    Alan Howell Parrot claims that both George W. Bush and Barack Obama were fully aware that bin Laden and more than 100 of his top Al Qaeda fighters were sheltering in Iran, along with their families. And he’s now released documents to support his claim Alan Howell Parrot is an unusual character with a flowing gray beard and wizard’s turban who looks like he popped out of a movie. Born in Maine, he followed his fascination with falcons to the Middle East, serving as Chief Falconer to the Shah of Iran and organizing falconry hunts for the royal families of...

    President Donald Trump confirmed Saturday a son of Osama bin Laden was killed during a U.S.-led counterterrorism operation along the border of Afghanistan and Pakistan. “The loss of Hamza bin Ladin not only deprives al-Qa’ida of important leadership skills and the symbolic connection to his father, but undermines important operational activities of the group. Hamza bin Ladin was responsible for planning and dealing with various terrorist groups,” he continued. It is unclear when Hamza bin Laden died, though it has been reported it was between 2017 and 2019. The State Department put out a $1 million reward for information on...

    Democrat Joe Biden has been lurking in the 2020 presidential shadows being presented by those with their 2020 fingers crossed as an adult in the romper room of pubescent progressives waiting for their Spartacus moments as they learn the complexities of basic math and leadership skills. Biden was the top choice for 28 percent of likely Democratic primary voters surveyed in a recent University of Massachusetts Amherst poll, despite him not having declared a 2020 presidential bid. Yet while critics of President Trump’s foreign policy accuse him of a degree of recklessness and immaturity that place the nation’s security at...

    Egyptian-born Al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri, one of the world's most wanted terrorists, is most likely hiding in Karachi under the protection of Pakistan's notorious spy agency Inter-Services Intelligence, a United States media report said. 'Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence agency has been protecting al-Zawahiri, a trained surgeon, since US forces evicted Al-Qaeda from Afghanistan in late 2001,' Newsweek said in a major investigative story claiming that its information is based on several authoritative sources. 'His most likely location today, they say: Karachi, the teeming port city of 26 million people on the Arabian Sea,' the weekly said. This is for the first...

    Washington -- Seeking a "radical reset" of ties with Pakistan for having "aided and abetted enemies of the United States for years", a senior Republican lawmaker has introduced a Bill in the House of Representatives to push for declaring Islamabad a "State sponsor of terrorism". Sponsored by Congressman Ted Poe, the Bill requires the President to issue a report within 90 days on whether Pakistan has provided support for international terrorism. And within 30 days after that, the Secretary of State must submit a follow-up report containing "either a determination that Pakistan is a State sponsor of terrorism or a...

    (Washington, D.C.) –  Today, U.S. Senator Patty Murray (D-WA) issued the following statement after President Trump issued executive orders concerning immigration, including ramping up immigration raids that tear families apart, constructing a wall on the border between U.S. and Mexico, and punishing cities that prioritize local control of policing and public safety.  “It’s deeply disappointing but not surprising to see President Trump turn his divisive, campaign rhetoric into the actions we are seeing today. There’s no question the U.S. immigration system is in need of a serious overhaul, but targeting hard-working families, constructing an extremely costly wall, and burdening law...

    They are the two men who changed the course of the history of the United States and the world in the new millennium: one by his capacity for evil, the other by his incapacity to comprehend it. The saga of Osama and Obama begins at the dawn of the 21st century. In September of 2001, Osama bin Laden slaughtered thousands of Americans in New York, Washington, and in the skies, undermining the nation's sense of security. The Twin Towers were a symbol of the soaring power of the unchallenged United States following the collapse of the Soviet Union. Osama didn't...

    In a few short weeks, President Barack Obama’s tenure in the White House will officially come to an end and Donald Trump will begin his terrifying reign as the leader of the free world. For many, this is a very scary reality, one that I’m still grappling to come to terms with myself. Nevertheless, as we prepare for Obama’s exit, let’s remember what his administration as president has done for the American people. 1.

    In her secret speeches to Wall Street bankers, Hillary Clinton backed free trade and claimed politicians need leeway to make backroom deals — and may have disclosed classified details of the raid on Usama bin Laden’s compound, according to the latest emails disclosed by WikiLeaks. The emails also revealed that back in 2015, the Clinton campaign strategized about ways to elevate Donald Trump and other “extreme” Republicans — as “Pied Piper” candidates who would ultimately be so “unpalatable,” they’d help her win. These “Pied Piper” candidates also included Ted Cruz and Ben Carson, according to the email, sent to the...

    She went on: “The amount of work that was required to get a strong-enough basis of information on which to plan took more than a decade . . . and then all of a sudden putting this matrix together and saying, ‘This guy used to protect bin Laden — he has just made a phone call. He said this in the phone call. We need to figure out where he is. Then we need to follow him.’ “And that is how we found this compound in Abbottabad [Pakistan]” — where a team of Navy SEALs took out bin Laden in May 2011.
