Search continues for missing 3 yeshiva students

The IDF is still searching for the 3 yeshiva students who were likely kidnapped:
Israeli soldiers were scouring the West Bank Friday in search of three missing teens — one of them a U.S. citizen — feared abducted by Palestinian militants.

An extremist group reportedly claimed responsibility for the kidnapping, but the claims were not officially confirmed.

The Dawlat al-Islam network released a statement saying they took the teens hostage as revenge against Israel for killing three of its operatives in the West Bank months ago, according to a local TV report.
It's tragically possible the above group did kidnap the three. But how and where to find these monsters and figure out whether the hostages are still alive?

Update: the prime minister has suitably blamed Mahmoud Abbas for these crimes:
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu made his first on camera statement on Saturday evening about the kidnapping of three teens in the West Bank on Thursday night.

Netanyahu confirmed that the boys were kidnapped by a terrorist group and that Israel was doing all in its power to return the teens.

The prime minister said that Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas was responsible for any attack on Israelis that came out of the West Bank or the Gaza Strip.
Of course. Abbas has practically encouraged this whenever he speaks of vindictive jihad against Israel for doing anything they despise. He does not deserve to be a politician.

A Jihadist’s Parting Words: ‘I’ll See You Guys in New York’

The Blaze:

The man who is now leading the Islamic State of Syria and the Levant (ISIL), the group so brutal that al-Qaeda has disavowed it, was once held prisoner by the United States.

A Jihadists Promise: Ill See You Guys in New York
Undated file picture released on Wednesday Jan. 29, 2014, by the official website of Iraq’s Interior Ministry claiming to show Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the head of the so-called Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant. The black-and-white picture shows a bearded man wearing a suit and tie. The group is behind most of the attacks that have been taking place in Iraq. It is also playing a more active military role alongside other predominantly Sunni rebels in the fight to topple Syrian President Bashar Assad, and its members have carried out attacks against Syrians near the porous border inside Iraq.

The U.S. let him go, and as he left, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi allegedly had some disturbing words for his captors: “I’ll see you guys in New York.”
Apparently, Al-Baghdadi was a low-profile prisoner until that moment.
“He was a bad dude,” recalled Army Col. Kenneth King, speaking to the Daily Beast, “but he wasn’t the worst of the worst.”
King was the commanding officer of Camp Bucca, the detention camp in Iraq where Al-Baghdadi was held, and when he heard Al-Baghdadi’s words back in 2009, he said he figured the man was saying he knew his captivity had essentially been a joke.
“Like, ‘This is no big thing, I’ll see you on the block,’” King told the Daily Beast, adding that Al-Baghdadi knew many of his captors at Camp Bucca were from New York.
Now, as the forces of ISIL (also know as ISIS, the Islamic State of Syria and Iraq) have seized large swathes of northern Syria and Iraq and seem poised to assault Baghdad, King said he was surprised that Al-Baghdadi was heading the jihadist group.
Indeed, as the Daily Beast noted, Al-Baghdadi has kept an extremely low profile, eschewing the public video appearances that other Islamic extremist leaders have been fond of making and leaving international media with very few pictures of himself.

The ISIL led by Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, who is believed to have been operating from inside Syria in recent months, is the main driver of destabilizing violence in Iraq and until recently was the main al-Qaida affiliate there. Al-Qaida’s general command formally disavowed the group this week, saying it “is not responsible for its actions.” (AP Photo/militant website, File) AP Photo/militant website, File

King said the fact that Al-Baghdadi was released is a source of personal frustration.
“We spent how many missions and how many soldiers were put at risk when we caught this guy (in 2005) and we just released him,” he said.

Update on Balad, story ***appears*** to be factual

 The latest report on several hundred hundred American military contractors, trapped and sometimes under fire since Wednesday at the Balad air base north of Baghdad, is that at least some of them have been evacuated to safety by Iraqi forces. That’s the good news.
Multiple sources indicate that several hundred contractors and U.S. government personnel were at the Balad base preparing for a delivery of F-16s to Iraq. (The Fox story alludes to quotes from Jen Psaki of the State Department that there could be “thousands” of Americans in-country, although clearly they were not all at Balad.)
“Three planeloads” of these passengers were flown out of Balad on Thursday, but reportedly, some 400-500 were still at Balad on Thursday night.
At CNN’s iReport website, a contractor’s urgent message from inside the Balad base was posted early on Friday:
I am writing from ballad Iraq as a employee of sallyport, ksillc..there are approx 500 US citizens on balad air base north of Baghdad trapped..we are part of a little known F16 iraq support mission here…The company has reportedly for the last 3 days to fly us out, we are now all herded into a central location on base..and being told nothing..The clint lockheed martin, DoS and most women have already been evacuated days ago but we are all still here. I hope this message is received by someone that can break this as headline news to bring attention to the situation for us..we are all worried and in dire straight as last security Intel reports Isis elements around us..
According to the WND report, the remaining contractors had come under fire:
The surrounded Americans said they were under ISIS fire from small arms, AK47s, and rocket propelled grenades, or RPGs.
The contractors had been able to hold the base, but those on the scene reported it was only a matter of time before the ISIS terrorists succeeded in breaking through the perimeter. The sources confirmed the contractors were still under siege, despite an Associated Press report Thursday, citing U.S. officials, that three planeloads of Americans were being evacuated from Balad.
image
Some contractors celebrate as they learn of their evacuation…
Balad Air Force Base has been under attack since Wednesday, when ISIS rebels seized the nearby town of Tikrit, the birthplace of Saddam Hussein.
The attacking ISIS forces approached the base in trucks Wednesday and called through loudspeakers for all private security forces and Iraqi special military to leave immediately or die.
The U.S. private contractors in touch with WND reported that after hearing the broadcast, the private security forces and the Iraqi military defending the base dropped their weapons and ran.
The American contractors collected the weapons left behind and were able to hold off further immediate advances.
The posture of the U.S. Air Force in theater was described thus by the contractors on site:
WND learned from sources that the jihadists closed down escape routes, and the U.S. Air Force was in a stand-down position. U.S. forces were not assisting even with air cover so a private extradition flight could land for a rescue, the sources said.
image
WND concluded:
Privately scheduled exit flights had fallen through, sources said, as several private pilots originally scheduled to make the flights quit.
The sources contended the U.S. military could provide the necessary air cover to protect C-130s or other air transport craft sufficient to make the evacuation, but [so] far officials had refused to get involved.
At this point, reporting is sketchy, and we don’t know what posture was ordered by the CENTCOM Commander or Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel. On-scene reports in the heat of the crisis should be taken with a grain of salt.
That said, there is no reason to doubt the basic facts that (a) American contractors have been trapped on the Iraqi base, which has been surrounded by guerrilla terrorists, since Wednesday; and (b) there has been no response by U.S. forces to secure the base (i.e., long enough to get our people out) or provide evacuation services directly.
What U.S. forces would we have to do this with? Interestingly, a theater response force intended to be used for such purposes was designated in 2013, sourced from the 15,000 Army troops stationed in Kuwait for regional contingency responses. Army units rotate through Kuwait to keep the force at its prescribed troop level. The basic quick-response force is a company-size unit with the following resources:
ARCENT [U.S. Army Command, Central Region] can scale any contingency response up to the brigade level… There also is a combat aviation brigade deployed to Kuwait, giving the force additional capability as needed… The CAB currently in Kuwait is the 36th CAB, from the Texas National Guard.
“We have multiple response capability within the ARCENT footprint,” [a spokesman] said. “We can gin up a scalable force beyond the company that’s designated, which gives us a unique capability in our AOR.”
The Army response force would be the obvious candidate for securing the Balad base to evacuate Americans through it. We don’t know if it was put on alert, or if it was decided, in the last 48 hours, that deploying it would be unnecessary. On the face of it, I would want any decision one way or the other looked into, given that Americans were trapped at Balad under fire and didn’t know if they were going to receive help or not.
There is no Navy-Marine Corps amphibious ready group (ARG) in the CENTCOM theater right now. The USS Bataan (LHD-5) ARG and 22 Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU) are in the Europe/Africa theater at the moment. ARG/MEUs are specially trained to conduct and support evacuations like the one needed by the Americans in Iraq, but the force isn’t in theater and able to respond. The USS George H.W. Bush (CVN-77) and embarked air wing (Carrier Air Wing 8) have been outside the Persian Gulf in the Arabian Sea, although reporting in the last couple of days has indicated that moving them into the Gulf is under discussion. The Bush’s air wing would be able to provide air support. Navy reconnaissance and transport assets based in Bahrain could also be used in some roles to support an evacuation of Americans from Iraq.
It’s important, again, not to jump to conclusions. Reporting on this is sketchy, and we haven’t heard a response from U.S. officials on the report that Americans have been under fire at Balad, and have had to be evacuated by the Iraqis.
PS….

Lockheed Martin delivers first F-16 to Iraqi air force

There have been many ceremonies at Lockheed Martin Aeronautics over the years to deliver F-16s to foreign nations, but Thursday’s event had a special significance.
Iraq, which the U.S. invaded and where its military spent years fighting insurgents over the past decade, took delivery of the first of 36 F-16 fighter jets being built in west Fort Worth.
It’s the F-16IQ
Info on this ADVANCED variant HERE
This is the IQ. You can see the conformal added forms above the F-16’s formerly smooth contours for added avionics and/or fuel for more range or carrying capacity. This is NOT a 1980’s F-16, and now in Iraq will it become a US weapon captured and end up carrying a black flag.

Border Patrol Agents Threatened with Criminal Charges for Speaking to Reporters

Breitbart:

HOUSTON, Texas—A surge of thousands of illegal immigrants crossing the U.S.-Mexico border has left federal resources and facilities overwhelmed. Most of the new migrants are children from Central America. In the aftermath of Breitbart Texas releasing photos showing minors warehoused in crowded U.S. cells, Border Patrol agents in Texas have been instructed not to speak to media outlets.
The Associated Press (AP) obtained an email from Eligio "Lee" Pena, an assistant patrol agent, that ordered more than 3,000 agents to not speak to reporters about the "humanitarian crisis." The email allegedly said that reporters are likely to press for details and "may try to disguise themselves" in the process."
Pena's email went on to warn agents that they could be disciplined or even charged with a crime if they speak to media, according to the AP.
Since the news of the spike in foreign minors, Border Patrol contacts--many of whom used to speak on the record regularly--have not returned numerous phone calls or emails from Breitbart Texas.
The silence comes in the face of the apprehension of 47,000 foreign children traveling alone to the U.S. since October.
Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson implied at a press conference on Thursday that many of the children will not be deported. "The law requires that we act in the best interest in the child," he said. "When we turn over a child to HHS, HHS acts in the best interest of the child which very often means reuniting that child with the parent in the United States. That's what the law requires."
It is unclear, then, how immigration laws will be enforced moving forward.
Many are concerned that by providing the migrants with shelter, transportation, meals, education, and even legal counsel, other children may be encouraged to make the dangerous trek north from Central America. Since agents on the ground are not able to give insight into the situation, the actual severity of the situation may be unknown.
This is not the first time Border Patrol agents have been ordered to remain silent on an issue. In May, Immigration Customs and Enforcement (ICE) ordered agents not to speak to reporters regarding the 36,000 convicted criminal illegal immigrants that were released onto U.S. soil.
"We were given specific instructions not to comment on that report," said Greg Palmore, a Texas-based ICE spokesman, during a phone interview with Breitbart Texas. He was referring to the  report by the Center for Immigration Studies that outlined the criminals' release.

Balad Air Base, Iraq? Benghazi x 50? Need more sourcing

Jerome Corsi reports… I would love to hear this corroborated
About 200 Americans under contract with the Department of Defense at Balad Air Force Base in Iraq are trapped by the al-Qaida-inspired jihadists who have seized control of two cities and are now threatening Baghdad, according to WND sources.

The sources, private contractors who have recently returned to the U.S. from Iraq, said Friday their former colleagues effectively have been abandoned by the U.S. military and are fighting for their lives against an army of jihadists surrounding the base who belong to the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, or ISIS.

The U.S. contractors are at Balad to help the Pentagon prepare the facilities for the delivery of the F-16 aircraft the Obama administration has agreed to provide the Iraqi government.

The surrounded Americans said they currently are under ISIS fire from small arms, AK47s, and rocket propelled grenades, or RPGs.

The contractors so far have been able to hold the base, but those on the scene reported it was only a matter of time before the ISIS terrorists succeed in breaking through the perimeter. They expressed concern that they would be ab

IRS Has "Lost" Lois Lerner Emails

THE STEPFATHER OF LIES

See, this is just another example of a NAIVE AND COLLAPSING ADMINISTRATION.

From the House Ways and Means Committee:
Washington, DC – Today, Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp (R-MI) issued the following statement regarding the Internal Revenue Service informing the Committee that they have lost Lois Lerner emails from a period of January 2009 – April 2011. Due to a supposed computer crash, the agency only has Lerner emails to and from other IRS employees during this time frame. The IRS claims it cannot produce emails written only to or from Lerner and outside agencies or groups, such as the White House, Treasury, Department of Justice, FEC, or Democrat offices.
THERE'S A BIG DIFFERENCE BETWEEN

A MISTAKE

AND AN INTENDED ACTION

ESPECIALLY WHEN THE DISTINCTION IS BEING MADE ABOUT THE ACTIONS OF THE MOST POWERFUL MAN IN THE WORLD.

ISIS Leader To U.S.: “Soon We Will Be In Direct Confrontation”

Obama is Ohana

Obama (who is not a Traitorous scum, but is only a naive leader whose agenda is collapsing) released this man from Guantanamo Bay in 2009:

From CNS:
(CNSNews.com) - Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), issued a rare audio message back on January 21 in which he flatly stated his group’s intention to march on Baghdad and move into “direct confrontation” with the United States. 
“Our last message is to the Americans. Soon we will be in direct confrontation, and the sons of Islam have prepared for such a day,” Baghdadi said. “So watch, for we are with you, watching.”

Daughter of first American killed in Afghanistan learns freed Taliban leader was behind it

Fox:

Alison Spann was just 9 when she learned her father, a U.S. Marine-turned CIA operative, had become the first American killed in the war in Afghanistan. Thirteen years later, she found out her country had freed the Taliban leader behind his death.
In the time between, Spann has cherished the memory of her father, Johnny Micheal “Mike” Spann, who was killed during a Nov. 25, 2001 prisoner uprising at a northern Afghanistan compound where he was interrogating Taliban fighters. The 32-year-old was buried at Arlington National Cemetery in a ceremony in which he was lauded by then-CIA Director George Tenet for trying to build a "better, safer world." His daughter has since grown up and recently graduated from Pepperdine University, even as more than 2,300 Americans have died fighting in Afghanistan.
But nothing prepared Alison Spann for news that Mullah Mohammad Fazi, the unquestioned leader of the prisoners at the compound where her father was killed, had been traded along with four cohorts held at Guantanamo Bay for U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who had been held by the Taliban for nearly five years..
“My initial reaction was shock. I was shocked that our president would release five of the most high-risk prisoners being held in Guantanamo in exchange for one American,” she told FoxNews.com. “As a whole, my family was extremely upset and saddened that our government would do something like this, especially in light of the fact that it seems that people in the intelligence community are fairly united in their belief that these terrorists are likely to seek to further harm Americans in the future.”
She has followed the story closely, but still cannot fathom how the country her father loved and fought for could allow his killer to go free.
“It does become harder and harder to have faith in an administration that is plagued with scandal after scandal,” she said. “I do not believe that it was the right move by the administration.”
Mike Spann died at the Qala-i-Jangi compound near Mazari Sharit in northern Afghanistan, where he was interrogating detainees captured during the early weeks of the war. Fazi, according to his Guantanamo case file, had been deputy defense minister and commander of all Taliban troops in the northern Afghanistan region at the time of the September 11 attacks. Before that, he was accused by Human Rights organizations of personally supervising the murders of thousands of Shiite and Tajik Sunni Muslims.
Although Secretary of State John Kerry has called concerns that Fazi and the other four freed Taliban leaders will return to the battlefield "baloney," Alison Spann considers it only a matter of time.
You cannot release someone of such a high caliber within the Taliban community and expect him to suddenly emerge as a peaceful being. I would think now more than ever after being detained in Gitmo that he would seek revenge on America,” she said. “These prisoners had one goal when they went into Gitmo and I feel certain that they left Gitmo with that same goal, and that is to do harm and spread evil in the world. The implications from this act will reach further than our soil and I am afraid that these prisoners have no plans of standing down from their original fight.”
 Tenet told mourners at Spann's funeral that it was his “quest for right” that led him to Afghanistan.
“To that place of danger and terror, he sought to bring justice and freedom," Tenet said. "And to our nation – which he held so close to his heart – he sought to bring a still greater measure of strength and security. For Mike understood that it is not enough simply to dream of a better, safer world. He understood that it has to be built – with passion and dedication, in the face of obstacles, in the face of evil.”
While Spann is widely regarded as a hero and a patriot, questions have arisen about Bergdahl. Men who served with Bergdahl have said he deserted his post, and Bergdahl's own emails and journal entries appear to support the charge. Alison Spann declined to characterize the circumstances behind Bergdahl's departure from his base in 2009, but said trading with terrorists is not wise policy.
“While I cannot speak on Bergdahl because it seems that there is a lot that is still unclear about him I can say that I do not agree with this POW swap,” Alison added. “I believe that the implications from this decision will be seen in the near future.”
Mike Spann’s star is the 79th star carved on the Agency’s Memorial Wall. He also received the Intelligence Star and the Exceptional Service Medallion posthumously.

CNN: No, really, mass shootings are not on the rise

Hot Air:

For the second time in two days, CNN went out of its way to debunk the Michael Bloomberg/Barack Obama claim that mass shootings have become epidemic and a “new normal” in American society. The day after CNN debunked the Bloomberg-funded Everytown claim that there were 74 Newtown-style mass shootings since Sandy Hook, Jake Tapper interviewed Northeastern University criminology professor James Alan Fox to look at the data rather than the anecdotes. Over a 40-year period, Fox concluded, mass shootings have remained flat — even while the population of the country has grown significantly over the same period:

So are mass shootings on the rise? One professor and criminologist says no.
Northeastern University criminology professor James Alan Fox compiled the data of shootings with four or more fatalities from 1976 to 2012, and found that these incidents on a chart look like an EKG: up and down, not a steady rise.
Fox doesn’t mention the other trendline on overall gun violence, which isn’t flat — it’s falling, on both the actual numbers and especially on a population-adjusted basis. The trend began during the Clinton administration, but accelerated after the expiration of the so-called “assault weapon” ban. The 1994 ban did not cause the rate of mass shootings to fall, either, mainly because most of those involved handguns (and shotguns) rather than rifles.
Fox tells Tapper that people should take Bill Clinton’s advice from that period to look at trend lines rather than headlines. They should also take care to make sure the data for those trend lines is honestly compiled, rather than cobbled together for maximum hysteria and political impact.

Vatican Radio:

Mosul now emptied of Christians, says Archbishop

(Vatican Radio) Speaking to Catholic charity Aid to the Church in Need, Chaldean Archbishop Amel Nona, said he thought Mosul's last remaining Christians had left now a city which until 2003 was home to 35,000 faithful.
The Christians are among 500,000 thought to have fled Mosul whose overthrow yesterday is now followed by news today (Wed, 11 June) of militant attacks on the Iraqi city of Tikrit 95 miles north of the capital, Baghdad.
Describing reports of attacks to four churches and a monastery in Mosul, the archbishop, 46, said: "We received threats... [and] now all the faithful have fled the city. I wonder if they will ever return there."
The archbishop, who in the ensuing crisis sought sanctuary in Tal Kayf, a village two miles from Mosul, described how the local community were doing their best to provide for crowds of people flooding out of the city and into the surrounding Nineveh plains, where there are a number of ancient Christian villages.
"Up at 5am yesterday [Tuesday, 10 June] morning we welcomed families on the run and we have tried to find accommodation in schools, classrooms and empty houses."
He said: "We have never seen anything like this – a large city such as Mosul attacked and in chaos."
He said that in the 11 years following the 2003 US-led overthrow of Iraq's President Saddam Hussein, Christians in Mosul had declined from 35,000 to 3,000 and that "now there is probably no one left."
The archbishop said the attacks on Mosul began last Thursday (5 June) but were initially confined to the western part of the city.
He said: "The army began bombing the affected areas but later in the night between Monday and Tuesday, suddenly the armed forces and the police left Mosul, leaving it to the mercy of the attackers."
The archbishop questioned reports claiming the militants responsible for the attacks are part of the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant (ISIS), a terrorist organisation linked to Al-Qaeda and in control of key areas of north-west Syria.
He said: "I do not know yet who the group is behind these attacks. Some speak of ISIS, others think other groups are responsible.
"We have to wait until we have a better understanding of the situation. What we do know is that they are extremists, many people have seen them patrolling the streets."

Here's What Happens When We Don't Call Obama's Actions By The Names They Deserve


Bill O'Reilly sees failure resulting from Obama's policies:


Bill O’Reilly: “President Obama Now Faces the Collapse of His Administration”


Oh NO!



Ron Fournier at the National Journal wrote an article all the false Conservatives are touting. The article discussed how Democrats are "quitting" on Obama:

"I've Had Enough: When Democrats Quit on Obama"

QUITTING?!? WE CAN NOT LET THAT HAPPEN.

What a fucking joke.

Obama is not collapsing, he is not naive, and he doesn't give a shit if Democrats quit on him.

THIS IS HIS TIME.

He is doing exactly what he wants to do.

He is destroying America.

Every policy, flooding the nation with illegal immigrant children, inviting father's of deserters to recite Islamic prayers in the Rose Garden, IRS, Fast and Furious, pulling out of Iraq with no plan, ISIS, Maliki, ruling as a King via his EPA throne, Muslim Brotherhood, Iran taking over in Iraq, Afghanistan, giving Crimea to Russia, etc.

Every policy designed, and carried out, prescisely to weaken our nation, to weaken the resolve of those who truly supposed to be the government, that is, the people.

Report: Released Taliban Leader Played Key Role in 9/11 Taliban Strategy

Newsmax:


One of the five senior Taliban leaders released in the prisoner swap for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl played a role in al-Qaida's strategy for the 9/11 terrorist attacks, The Weekly Standard reported.

Mohammad Fazl, who served as the Taliban's army chief of staff and deputy defense minister, worked with one of Osama bin Laden's chief lieutenants to execute a military offensive against the Northern Alliance on Sept. 10, 2001, according to the Standard.

The successful operation was a key part of the strategy to ensure that opposition to the Taliban in Afghanistan was weakened. The Taliban was preparing for an anticipated American retaliation immediately following 9/11.

A leaked Joint Task Force Guantanamo threat assessment of Fazl said that he met with Abdul Hadi al Iraqi to "immediately coordinate an attack with the Taliban against the Northern Alliance," according to the Standard. The attack was to be carried out the day after al-Qaida assassinated Northern Alliance commander Ahmed Shah Massoud in a suicide bombing so as to weaken the opposition's morale.

The Standard highlighted that the 9/11 Commission said in its final report that the mastermind of the attacks, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, confirmed that the offensive Fazl assisted with was a key part of the strategy to execute the 9/11 attacks.

Despite Fazl's involvement, the Obama administration has insisted that none of the five detainees that were freed pose any threat to the United States and were not directly involved in the terrorist attacks on the United States.

"These five guys are not a threat to the United States," former secretary of state Hillary Clinton said during an interview on NBC News last week, the Standard noted.

"They are a threat to the safety and security of Afghanistan and Pakistan. It's up to those two countries to make the decision once and for all that these are threats to them. So I think we may be kind of missing the bigger picture here. We want to get an American home, whether they fell off the ship because they were drunk or they were pushed or they jumped, we try to rescue everybody."

Marie Harf, a State Department spokeswoman, also insisted during a June 5 press conference that none of the former detainees posed any threat to the United States. The Daily Beast reported that John Brennan, director of the CIA and previously Obama's chief counterterrorism adviser, has argued that the "Taliban Five" were primarily focused on fighting against Afghans and did not have a record of attacking Americans, the Standard reported.

Meanwhile, each of the other four members of the Taliban Five were also part of the alliance with the Taliban that enabled al-Qaida to carry out the 9/11 terrorist attacks, according to the Standard.

The magazine said that the leaked files and court documents show that the U.S. government believes that Khairullah Khairkhwa was linked to bin Laden and oversaw one of al-Qaida's main training camps in Afghanistan.

Abdul Haq Wassiq served as the deputy director of intelligence for the Taliban and "was in charge of handling relations with al-Qaida-related foreign fighters and their training camps in Afghanistan," the Standard reported, citing the United Nations. The camps were a base where al-Qaida trained terrorists for its plots against America.

Norullah Noori, like Fazl, was also a Taliban military commander and coordinated operations with al-Qaida's paramilitary forces.

The leaked documents also concluded that Mohammad Nabi Omari planned attacks with al-Qaida against coalition forces.

3 yeshiva students feared kidnapped by jihadists

The PLO and Hamas had already signaled they intended to unleash hell, and as this report can make clear, they may have done just that:
Security forces fear three teenage yeshiva boys, all 16 years of age, were kidnapped in the West Bank after they went missing from a hitchhiking spot in the Gush Etzion area Thursday night.

The youths, all of whom are yeshiva students, went missing during the course of Thursday night and security forces are conducting sweeping searches of the area.

Israel says it holds the Palestinian Authority responsible for the well-being of the missing youths. [...]

Police were in touch with the families and said that they have no reason to believe that the teenagers decided to go missing on their own, or run away from home or their yeshiva.
More about this on JTA. What's truly awful is that the boys may have already met a horrible fate. But will the perpetrators of the crime be tracked and punished for it? That's what we simply don't know.

I don't need this country,

All I need is this $5 million dollar condo in the city,

My Prediction for Presidential Election season, 2016


The Republican Ticket will consist of Joe Biden, with Jeb Bush on the VP slot.

The Democrat Ticket will consist of Hilario Clinton, with Juana McCain on the VP slot. (Yes, that's right! They're both going to undergo Gender Transformations.)

The primary issue separating the two parties (which, it must be remembered, are supposed to represent the Will of We the People) will be whether or not to levy a Carbon Tax on Abortion Clinics.

The Democrat ticket will be all for an outright tax on Abortion Clinics for releasing pollutants into the Biosphere.

The Republican ticket will say no to an outright tax, insisting, instead, that Abortion Clinics should receive Carbon Credits for recycling Aborted babies.

5% of Americans will vote and the Republican Joe Biden will win in a landslide on the strength of his improbable, yet somehow genius campaign slogan, 


"Yo, yo, yo, my Niggers gon' run NSA all up in yo' ass, biatch."

ISIS succeeds, Kurds are SCREWED (AGAIN), but the big oppo is for Iran

Anyone old enough to be cognizant of world events in 1975 has seen this before.
An American govt disgusted, fed up and impatient, with population tired of war turns it’s back and their former ally disintegrates, because the other side has a conscience which permits them any act.
We are EVACUATING Americans as I write this.
Thus ISIS.
Only this week Iraq was receiving late model F-16’s from the USA. Will they be operated b ISIS in a few weeks?
If we look at the map of the ISIS conquered territory so far, sweeping across Syria and all of northern Iraq, it includes almost all of a natural Kurdistan not in Iran or Turkey. The Kurds are our natural allies. The Kurds are the only folks there who actually can be argued to DESERVE our help.
Never mind.
But today with the IRGC and Iran calling for volunteers, and with Ali Sistani doing the same, the opportunity of a clash between a salafi caliphate funded by a DESPERATE KSA, and other GCC salafi states, and a Shia/Persian hegemony of vengeance over a possible regional empire from the Afghan border to the med is now in the offing.
The big opportunity is for Iran to win. THEY will get the backing of a state, and OTHER states. ISIS can only get $ surreptitiously.
Either outcome is HORRIFIC for the USA, but given our admin, and the population as they have been led, I am damned if I can see anything we can or are able to do SUCCESSFULLY.

The Caliphate Rising


Back in January 2006, I published this at my first blog site. Excerpt:
From "Reunified Islam: Unlikely but Not Entirely Radical: Restoration of Caliphate, Attacked by Bush, Resonates With Mainstream Muslims," front-page article in the January 14, 2006 edition of the Washington Post....
I concluded my blog post with this paragraph:
Are we standing before an abyss which we cannot comprehend and refuse to admit the very existence of?
Now, in 2014, Iraq seems to be falling to the jihadists.  $15 billion of our treasure, some 4000 dead American military personnel, and much blood spilled.  For what?

Syria aroil.

A dead U.S. ambassador in Libya.

Various jihad attacks are popping up all over the place.

Five Taliban commanders traded for one PFC.

"The Arab Spring," with whatever purpose it began, represents the push to establish a worldwide caliphate, something for which the majority of Muslims yearn.

And Obama has sent numerous signals that have served to embolden jihad.

Islam respects The Strong Man, and Obama has clearly indicated that he is not A Strong Man.

Clearly, the caliphate establishers are winning. 

How long before we face another 9/11 here on our soil?

Not to worry, though. Obama says (June 11, 2014), and his supporters nod their heads in agreement:
[T]he truth of the matter is that for all the challenges we face, all the problems that we have, if you had to be — if you had to choose any moment to be born in human history, not knowing what your position was going to be, who you were going to be, you’d choose this time. The world is less violent than it has ever been....
Talk about delusion! Or is it something else?

Canadian university stuffs Islam into alleged health program

Taqqiya indoctrination taking place at McMaster:
Two McMaster graduate students were wrapping up a community presentation on mental health when members of the audience began approaching them, in tears.

The audience had just experienced an eye-opening discussion in which some had learned that symptoms they had battled privately were in fact the hallmarks of recognized conditions such as depression and anxiety, and that treatment was readily available.

For the first time, someone had told them they were not alone and that they were not to blame.

The presentation had been organized by a group of McMaster graduate students who for the past year have been visiting Muslim organizations from Hamilton to Toronto to talk about healthy active living in a religious and cultural context.

"When we said there's treatment and help available for you, they were so relieved," said Kashmala Qasim, a member of the group. She and her fellow presenter pointed out there were religious supplications available for anxiety and depression, in conjunction with psychotherapy. "We put science and Islam together and they were really relieved."
I wonder how much longer they'll be once they discover they've only led to the potential for osteoporosis? Such a sad case, it's not even funny. The halal customs are less healthy than kashrut, but I'm sure they never bothered to bring that up.

Frank Miller would like to script Captain America

But would Marvel agree to it? The Hollywood Reporter says he brought this up during his promo campaigns for the Sin City sequel coming out:
Miller revealed his ambition during a Reddit AMA to promote the second Sin City movie [4] on Wednesday. When asked which comic hero he’d like to write for, he replied “I get back to Captain America, because I find him such a wonderful anachronism,” in addition to being a character that “features virtues that my country has either lost or misplaced for a very long time.” He continued, “I remember telling people at Marvel, just a few days after 9/11, that I hoped they realized what they had there, because Captain America's reaction to 9/11 would have been pretty direct.”
Tragically, as has been very clear since - especially after they published The Truth: Red, White and Black, that anti-American screed that managed to be insulting to blacks simultaneously -  they don't know what they've got with Cap, and even if they do, it's additionally clear they despise it through and through. Based on which, there's good reason to doubt they want anything more to do with Miller; much like Chuck Dixon and Mike Baron, I'm sure they've blacklisted him too, and probably don't even thank him for all the good he did for Daredevil back in the 80s. Why, this article was written by none other than Graeme McMillan, who already made clear his own disdain for Miller's Holy Terror based on the premise alone, and proceeds to say:
...the title was published by Legendary Entertainment’s comic book imprint to much critical complaint; the journalist Spencer Ackerman summed up popular response to the book when he described it as [6] “a screed against Islam, completely uninterested in any nuance or empathy, [that] ignores practically everything about the actual strategic situation the United States is in.”
Oh, tell us all about it, please do. No courage to admit a lot of leftists were the ones who couldn't bear it, so I'm not sure what he means by "popular", because, come to think of it, even among leftists, I'm not sure that was truly the case.

And Tom Brevoort is one Marvel staffer who's made clear where they stand:
...We’d certainly be interested in the abstract, depending on what story he’d want to tell. (I don’t think, for example, we’d have gone ahead with HOLY TERROR as a Captain America story.)
Not with awful people like him running the shop. His use of "abstract" is enough to hint he'd rather they not hire Miller ever again, and it's got nothing to do with his over-the-top writing style more common since Sin City. No, it's just because of his modern beliefs. So Brevoort's obviously not brave enough to admit it's more than not thinking - as evidenced by his own twisted leftist beliefs, he's vehemently opposed to hiring Miller for a job at all, and it wouldn't make any difference if Miller used metaphorical takes on real life issues; he doesn't want those either.

ISIS Terror Leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi Was Released By Obama from Camp Bucca in 2009

His Highness, Honey Boo Boo
A King for a Stupid, Ungrateful Nation

The Telegraph reported:
The FBI “most wanted” mugshot shows a tough, swarthy figure, his hair in a jailbird crew-cut. The $10 million price on his head, meanwhile, suggests that whoever released him from US custody four years ago may now be regretting it…
…Well-organised and utterly ruthless, the ex-preacher is the driving force behind al-Qaeda’s resurgence throughout Syria and Iraq, putting it at the forefront of the war to topple President Bashar al-Assad and starting a fresh campaign of mayhem against the Western-backed government in Baghdad.
On Tuesday, his forces achieved their biggest coup in Iraq to date, seizing control of government buildings in Mosul, the country’s third biggest city. Coming on top of similar operations in January that planted the black jihadi flag in the towns of Fallujah and Ramadi, it gives al-Qaeda control of large swathes of the north and west of the country, and poses the biggest security crisis since the US pull-out two years ago…
…“This guy was a Salafi (a follower of a fundamentalist brand of Islam), and Saddam’s regime would have kept a close eye on him,” said Dr Michael Knights, an Iraq expert at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy.
“He was also in Camp Bucca for several years, which suggests he was already considered a serious threat when he went in there.”
That theory seems backed by US intelligence reports from 2005, which describe him as al-Qaeda’s point man in Qaim, a fly-blown town in Iraq’s western desert.
“Abu Duaa was connected to the intimidation, torture and murder of local civilians in Qaim”, says a Pentagon document. “He would kidnap individuals or entire families, accuse them, pronounce sentence and then publicly execute them.”
Why such a ferocious individual was deemed fit for release in 2009 is not known. One possible explanation is that he was one of thousands of suspected insurgents granted amnesty as the US began its draw down in Iraq. Another, though, is that rather like Keyser Söze, the enigmatic crimelord in the film The Usual Suspects, he may actually be several different people.
Democracy Now added this on the closing of Camp Bucca in 2009.
The US meanwhile has closed Camp Bucca, once its largest prison in Iraq. The Pentagon says it’s transferred Bucca’s remaining 180 prisoners to two jails near Baghdad. US Lieutenant Colonel Kenneth King said the prison’s closure comes as part of the US-Iraq security deal.
Lieutenant Colonel Kenneth King: “As a show of progress for the security agreement and moving forward the government of Iraq, we’re going to put the theater internment facility as a piece of history. And we’re going to — it will be history, and we’ll move forward from here and progress.”
Camp Bucca once hosted thousands of prisoners without charge, with many allegations of torture and abuse by US guards.
AND THEN THERE'S THIS:
