    U.S. officials confirmed that the man considered the most dangerous terrorist in the world after Osama bin Laden and a top al-Qaeda bomb-maker was killed in a U.S. drone strike in Yemen in 2017. Ibrahim al-Asiri, a 37-year-old from Saudi Arabia who is responsible for creating a host of bombs — including the underwear bomb intended to take down a flight from Detroit to Amsterdam on Christmas in 2009 — escaped U.S. strikes in the past, despite a $5 million bounty for his capture since 2014, according to reports by Fox News. Al-Asiri and several associates were standing beside his...
  • Rand Paul reveals the real reason why Trump should have revoked John Brennan’s security clearance

    Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) suggested last month that President Donald Trump revoke the security clearance of former CIA Director John Brennan over his potential to profit from his privilege despite no longer holding an official government position. Trump agreed, and revoked Brennan’s clearance on Wednesday, more than a month after Paul’s suggestion. And while officially Trump acted because Brennan used his status “to make a series of unfounded and outrageous allegations” and “wild outbursts” about the Trump administration, Paul explained on Fox News Thursday that Brennan’s clearance should have been revoked for “cause” — if that wasn’t the reason, at...

    Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. expressed “extreme, extreme concern” on Sunday over reports that bomb makers from Yemen responsible for the 2009 underwear-bomb plot are now in Syria cooperating with foreign militants there, possibly to develop new, nearly undetectable explosive devices. Asked on Sunday whether that threat was a “clear and present danger,” Mr. Holder responded: “I think it is. In some ways, it’s more frightening than anything I think I’ve seen as attorney general.”

    On the heels of news that the Obama administration Department of Justice was spying on reporters at the Associated Press, Monday brought the startling disclosure by the Washington Post that the DOJ had also targeted Fox reporter James Rosen for surveillance in an effort to plug up leaks. Additionally, the New Yorker’s Ryan Lizza obtained the full application for a search warrant of Rosen’s personal email account, in which the DOJ accused him of being “an aider and abettor and/or co-conspirator.” As Lizza put it, “Rosen was not charged with any crime, but it is unprecedented for the government, in...

  • BOMBSHELL: Al-Qaeda Infiltrator was not CIA, Cover Blown for Election Year Politics

    Just a week ago the establishment media was aflutter with news that a CIA double-agent had thwarted a new type of underwear bomb attack targeting U.S. flights in a plot devised by al-Qaeda of the Arabian Peninsula. But as the week progressed, a developing bombshell story got buried under President Obama’s gay marriage announcement. Not only is the supposed CIA asset not a CIA asset at all, but the entire operation was exposed prematurely and the double-agent’s life was immediately threatened by an intelligence leak that very well may have come out of the White House for political gain. As...

    Here's a disturbing update to last week's amazing story about the U.S. mole who infiltrated al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula and thwarted an airliner attack with a more sophisticated underwear bomb. Someone in Washington whose boss stood to gain from an election year story about alert intelligence operatives successfully protecting American voters at great personal risk leaked the heroic story to the Associated Press. The AP held the story until Obama administration sources said the CIA operative was safe. But, it turns out, the mole was not a CIA operative. The Obama administration had nothing to do with the...
  • Whoever Leaked the Underwear Bomber Story Ought to Be Nervous [damaging for undercover agents]

    The heat is on a U.S. official responsible for leaking details of al Qaeda's disrupted bomb plot to the Associated Press. On the Sunday talk shows, high-ranking officials in both chambers of Congress across both parties called for investigations and the prosecution of the man or woman who leaked details about the infiltration of al Qaeda's Yemen branch. Unlike previous situations, where government crackdowns on leakers has been criticized, this is appears to be a fairly clear-cut case of improper leaking. The mission, which resulted in the recovery of a sophisticated underwear bomb, was leaked to the AP before it...

    U.S. and Yemeni officials say the supposed would-be bomber at the heart of an al-Qaida airliner plot was actually an informant working for the CIA. The revelation, first reported by The Los Angeles Times, shows how the CIA was able to get its hands on a sophisticated underwear bomb well before an attack was set in motion. Officials say the informant was working for the CIA and Saudi Arabian intelligence when he was given the bomb. He then turned the device over to authorities. Officials say the informant is safely out of Yemen. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity...

    Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, who tried to bring down Northwest flight 253 over Detroit on Christmas Day 2009 with an underwear bomb, said he was was "proud to kill in the name of God" before he was sentenced to multiple life sentences today in a Detroit courtroom. "Today is a day of victory and God is great," said Abdulmutallab, 25. He also said that al Qaeda would one day be victorious, and that acts like his will continue until "the righteous servants of Allah inherit the world." "The defendant has never expressed doubt or remorse about his mission," said Judge Nancy...

    Two years ago as two-hundred eighty-nine people sat on a Christmas Day flight from Amsterdam to Detroit studying their watches, flipping through their Kindles and hoping they would make it home in time, among them sat a devout Muslim with a packet of Pentaerythritol tetranitrate sewn into his underwear. At his trial Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab said, “In late 2009, in fulfillment of a religious obligation, I decided to participate in jihad against the United States. The Koran obliges every able Muslim to participate in jihad and fight in the way of Allah, those who fight you, and kill them wherever...

    Detroit (CNN) -- The judge in the federal trial of alleged "underwear bomber" Umar Farouk AbdulMutallab refused Tuesday to prevent the prosecution from calling the device he allegedly carried a "bomb." U.S. District Judge Nancy Edmunds also refused to exclude a photo of AbdulMutallab's burned genitals from the evidence. Before the prosecution began its opening statement, defense standby counsel Anthony Chambers asked that the prosecutors not be allowed to use the words "explosive device" or "bomb" during the trial. It's up to the jury to decide whether the device AbdulMutallab was carrying was a bomb, Chambers argued. "I'm going to...

    By the U-Bomber’s concept of justice, one he shares with millions of jihadists around the world, an aggressive act is a permissible “defensive” act when waged against anyone defaming Muhammad. So fundamental a truth is this in the U-Bomber’s mind that he sees no need to include in his motion any details, real or invented, of any wrongdoing or provcative behavior on the part of the officers that could explain his outbrust of violence. He never says the officers flushed his Koran, or called him an Islamophobic name, or tried to read to him from the polytheist Bible. What he...

    While the world’s attention is focused on the combat transpiring in Libya and the events in Egypt and Bahrain, Yemen has also descended into crisis. The country is deeply split over its support for Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh, and this profound divide has also extended to the most powerful institutions in the country — the military and the tribes — with some factions calling for Saleh to relinquish power and others supporting him. The tense standoff in the Yemeni capital of Sanaa has served to divert attention (and security forces) from other parts of the country. On March 28,...

    WASHINGTON — When an admitted al Qaeda operative planned his itinerary for a Christmas 2009 airline bombing, he considered launching the strike in the skies above Houston or Chicago, The Associated Press has learned. But tickets were too expensive, so he refocused the mission on a cheaper destination: Detroit. The decision is among new details emerging about one of the most sensational terrorism plots to unfold since President Obama took office. It shows that al Qaeda's Yemen branch does not share Osama bin Laden's desire to attack symbolic targets, preferring instead to strike at targets of opportunity. Like the plot...

    According to a Federal Grand Jury, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the so-called Christmas Day Underwear Bomber, was not alone in his attempt to blow up commercial Northwest Airline Flight 253 headed for Detroit. A new charge of Conspiracy to Commit an Act of Terrorism Transcending National Boundaries, for which the maximum sentence is life imprisonment. The new charge is spelled out in Count One of the court document released today by the United States District Court of Michigan Southern Division. It says "From in or about the year 2009, continuing up to and including December 25,2009, defendant Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, and...
  • John O. Brennan: "Johnny Breadbox the `no-talent assclown`"? *Props to Mike Judge

    Would somebody please cue for me the history of John O. Brennan? I seem to have a mental segment of lost time. My poor brain tells me that this no-talent assclown and Obama apologist did seppuku sometime after the failed Christmas bombing last year and left the Regime. Yet here he is again up on the dais, briefing us on how he and crew failed to protect us yet again. WTF? Wasn’t he gone gone gone? So was he resurrected a la Van Jones, simply sliding over into another role that is, um, very much like his old role but...
