Will the Obama library’s ‘legacy’ wing include this detail about his admin’s treasured ‘deal partner’?

These are the people the Obama administration sent a pallet of cash to, defended against Israel criticism, and tried unsuccessfully to launder money for:

Iranian officials, in a first, have admitted to facilitating the 9/11 terrorist attacks in the U.S. by secretly aiding the free travel of al Qaeda operatives who eventually went on to fly commercial airliners into the Twin Towers in New York City, according to new remarks from a senior Iranian official.

Mohammad-Javad Larijani, an international affairs assistant in the Iran’s judiciary, disclosed in Farsi-language remarks broadcast on Iran’s state-controlled television that Iranian intelligence officials secretly helped provide the al Qaeda attackers with passage and gave them refuge in the Islamic Republic, according to an English translation published by Al Arabiya.

“Our government agreed not to stamp the passports of some of them because they were on transit flights for two hours, and they were resuming their flights without having their passports stamped. However their movements were under the complete supervision of the Iranian intelligence,” Larijani was quoted as saying.

The remarks represent the first time senior Iranian officials have publicly admitted to aiding al Qaeda and playing a direct role in facilitating the 9/11 attacks.

Can’t say I’m surprised in the least.

AWW: Khalid Shaikh Mohammed wants to tell the Senate why CIA director nominee Gina Haspel is wrong for the job

The libs on the Senate Intelligence Committee spent the better part of the Haspel hearing arguing as if they’re defense attorneys for Guantanamo Bay prison detainees so frankly I’d be surprised if some of them didn’t seriously entertain making this happen:

President Trump’s nomination of Gina Haspel to lead the C.I.A. has revived debate over the agency’s post-Sept. 11 interrogation program and still-murky questions about her involvement. Now, on the eve of her Senate confirmation hearing, a striking voice is trying to join that fray: Khalid Shaikh Mohammed.

Mr. Mohammed, the principal architect of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, was captured in March 2003 and tortured by the C.I.A. This week, he asked a military judge at Guantánamo Bay for permission to share six paragraphs of information about Ms. Haspel with the Senate Intelligence Committee.

Ms. Haspel ran a black-site prison in Thailand where another high-level detainee was tortured in late 2002. But it is not known whether she was involved, directly or indirectly, in Mr. Mohammed’s torture. Mr. Mohammed was held in secret C.I.A. prisons in Afghanistan and Poland.

Frankly I’m a little surprised that Kamala Harris, Dianne Feinstein and other Dems on the panel hyperventilating over Haspel’s nomination haven’t invited Mohammed up from Club Gitmo to share his emotions with the Senate and possibly give him a chance to join the call for Trump’s impeachment.

New Yorker writer living in fear as Big Apple is invaded by Christian chicken sandwiches

New York City progressives pride themselves on embracing all viewpoints and choices — AS LONG AS THEY’RE THE APPROVED KIND. Get a load of this triggering:

Imagine living your life this panicked:

New York has taken to Chick-fil-A. One of the Manhattan locations estimates that it sells a sandwich every six seconds, and the company has announced plans to open as many as a dozen more storefronts in the city. And yet the brand’s arrival here feels like an infiltration, in no small part because of its pervasive Christian traditionalism. Its headquarters, in Atlanta, is adorned with Bible verses and a statue of Jesus washing a disciple’s feet. Its stores close on Sundays. Its C.E.O., Dan Cathy, has been accused of bigotry for using the company’s charitable wing to fund anti-gay causes, including groups that oppose same-sex marriage. “We’re inviting God’s judgment on our nation,” he once said, “when we shake our fist at him and say, ‘We know better than you as to what constitutes a marriage.’ ” The company has since reaffirmed its intention to “treat every person with honor, dignity and respect,” but it has quietly continued to donate to anti-L.G.B.T. groups. When the first stand-alone New York location opened, in 2015, a throng of protesters appeared. When a location opened in a Queens mall, in 2016, Mayor Bill de Blasio proposed a boycott. No such controversy greeted the opening of this newest outpost. Chick-fil-A’s success here is a marketing coup. Its expansion raises questions about what we expect from our fast food, and to what extent a corporation can join a community.

How long will it be until libs start calling Chick-fil-A “assault sandwiches” and demand somebody do something to limit the number of locations?

Shocker! Guess where some of the Obama admin’s ‘pallet of cash’ to Iran ended up

Who didn’t see this coming?

The U.S. government has traced some of the $1.7 billion released to Iran by the Obama administration to Iranian-backed terrorists in the two years since the cash was transferred.

According to knowledgeable sources, Iran has used the funds to pay its main proxy, the Lebanon-based terrorist group Hezbollah, along with the Quds Force, Iran’s main foreign intelligence and covert action arm and element of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps.

The U.S. money supplied to Iran as part of an arms settlement dating back to the 1970s also has been traced to Iran’s backing of Houthi rebels seeking to take power in Yemen. Iran has been supporting the Yemen rebels as part of a bid to encircle and eventually take control of Saudi Arabia.

It’s getting so you can’t ship a couple billion in cash to the world’s #1 state sponsor of terrorism without them using the money to fund terrorism. All that just to get the Ayatollah to agree to the Iran Deal, done for the sole purpose of getting Obama something else to hang on the “Legacy” wall of his presidential library.

By the way, most of the mainstream media won’t mention this, partly because they’re too busy fangirling over North Korea at the Olympics.

Dems currently huddling to figure out how right-wingers and the NRA can still be blamed for this

After a bunch of lefties assumed a mosque fire in Houston was because of anti-Muslim backlash, this stopped them dead in their tracks:

This is the sound of liberal talking points going down the toilet:

But I’m still waiting for some libs to claim that the NRA is getting so out of control that they caused a Muslim man to snap and attempt to burn down his own house of worship. “GUN CONTROL NOW!”

Michael Moore has a message for The Donald outside Trump Tower

Take that, Donald!

Trump should go stand outside Moore’s NYC apartment building holding a sign that says “but we aren’t all anti-capitalist millionaires with multiple homes.”

Later on after he went and had dinner, Moore’s sign changed a little:

When ‘if you see something say something’ is outweighed by fear of PC police backlash

The Department of Homeland Security often says this: “If you see something, say something.”

Unfortunately a lot of people fear what might happen if they follow that advice, as evidenced by this person who noticed suspicious activity at a home where the people accused of killing 14 in San Bernardino had been living:

It was believed that the Redlands home was the home of Syed Farook’s sister and mother.

The second shooting suspect who was killed in a shootout with authorities was identified as Farook’s wife of two years, Tashfeen Malik, 27.

Neighbors in Redlands were shocked that the suspects had ties to their area.

“I was in awe that it was happening four houses down from my property,” one neighbor said.

A man who has been working in the area said he noticed a half-dozen Middle Eastern men in the area in recent weeks, but decided not to report anything since he did not wish to racially profile those people.

“We sat around lunch thinking, ‘What were they doing around the neighborhood?’” he said. “We’d see them leave where they’re raiding the apartment.”

According to libs, it’s probably just easier to let them do whatever it is they’re doing and later blame it on Republican prayers and the NRA.

New lefty line of 2nd Amendment attack: Would Jesus join the NRA?

Actual title of a post on the Reuters blog: Would Jesus join the NRA?

Hey, can I play that game too?

The ridiculous Reuters piece closed this way — and keep in mind we were supposed to be talking about guns:

When the call of conscience trumps habit and history, surprising things can happen. From Jim Crow to women’s suffrage, it is only when men and women have brought their higher selves into the political realm that we have seen systems radically change.

It might not be as hard as we fear.

In other words, the 2nd Amendment is equatable with racism and sexism.

Speaking of Jesus, what’s the bible say about bearing false witness?

Within hours of the Benghazi attack, Obama admin officials took quick action by calling … YouTube?

Let those intent on harming Americans be put on notice: If you plan to harm or do harm a U.S. citizen, the Obama administration will swiftly and decisively contact video sharing websites:

Judicial Watch today released new State Department documents that raise more questions about the September 11, 2012, terrorist attack on the U.S. Special Mission at Benghazi, Libya. The documents show the White House contacted YouTube over an Internet video as one of its first moves after the initial attack.

The documents, from the agency’s Bureau of Diplomatic Security, were provided to Judicial Watch in response to a court order in a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia on October 16, 2014, (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of State (No. 1:14-cv-01733)). The lawsuit seeks “any and all logs, reports, or other records” the Washington-based Diplomatic Security Command Center produced between September 10, 2012, and September 13, 2012, relating to the terrorist attack on the U.S. compound in Benghazi, Libya.”

The documents detail that only three hours after the initial attack on U.S. personnel in Benghazi, the White House contacted YouTube in an apparent effort to initially blame the assault on an obscure “Pastor John video,” rather than filmmaker Nakoula “Mark” Basseley Nakoula. The administration falsely claimed that Nakoula’s video, “Innocence of Muslims,” provoked the attack.

The documents are dissected here.

Hillary later flat-out lied to some family members of Benghazi victims by blaming “The Innocence of Muslims” video when it was in fact a planned, coordinated attack on the anniversary if 9/11.

Now there’s a good chance the same person who led the “it was the video” scapegoating might be put in charge of U.S. national security. Sleep well!

So how’s Obama’s plan to bring ISIS to its knees going?

Last year:

Today:

But I’m totally confident that the White House is correct when they claim their beloved Iran deal will degrade and ultimately eliminate Tehran’s ability to make a nuclear weapon.
