While reading the words of John Kerry ask yourself how Osama Bin Laden could have pulled off 9/11 if he’d have been poor: We talked about the common interest of Pope Francis and President Obama in addressing poverty and extreme poverty on a global basis. The United States of America is deeply involved in efforts […]

Today marks the 12th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, when thousands lost their lives, and it is also the first anniversary of the Benghazi attack, where four Americans lost their lives. On 9/11/01, I was working at a TV station — a CBS affiliate — and like all of you, remember the rest of that […]

This is from back in February, but I thought it was worth a flashback considering recent events: I’m sure the New York Times and NBC News are digging hard to find out if any information gleaned from PRISM was shared with OFA… just kidding!

What kind of complaints might they get? “The coffee cream in the bomb vest assembly room is a little sour”? From the UK Telegraph: The organisation is the leading militia in the north-eastern part of rebel-held Syria, and has taken control of parts of the civilian administration in the city of Raqqa. It posted a […]

With a hat tip to @NickConfessore, this Associated Press story could serve as the synopsis for the script to “Office Space II: Peter Gibbons Goes Rogue”: After years of trying to discipline him, the leaders of al-Qaida’s North African branch sent one final letter to their most difficult employee. In page after scathing page, they […]

In 2008, candidate Obama made numerous promises that if elected president he would immediately close the prison at Guantanamo Bay: Today, some five years later, Obama’s going to call (again) for steps that could culminate in the shuttering of the prison. Problem is, those steps involve sending some of the suspects back to one of […]

“The day after it happened, I acknowledged that this was an act of terrorism.” – President Obama, May 13, 2013 ***** Four Pinocchios, according to Glenn Kessler at the Washington Post. I’d throw in a fifth Pinocchio just because Obama has repeated this lie so many times. He never used the word “terrorism” in reference […]

“There’s no ‘there’ there” is the new “pay no attention to the man behind the curtain”: Well, there’s no “there” there now because people angry about an offensive YouTube video terrorists destroyed the place. Obama today also called the Benghazi investigation a “sideshow.” It must be distracting from the IRS’s efforts to crack down on […]

It’s on. If you want to watch online, the second video here seems to be the least glitchy feed. So far the “whistleblowers” are testifying what they’ve previously been reported as saying — that there was no demonstration prior to the attack and that rapid rescue troops in the country were ordered (by somebody) to […]

Just not for Chris Stevens and not last September: When then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made an unannounced part-of-the-day visit to Tripoli, Libya, on Oct. 18, 2011, the U.S. Defense Department pre-positioned assets off the Libyan coast in case it needed to rescue the secretary of state. The fact that the assets were pre-positioned for […]
