Brits Deny Health Care to the Non-Exceptional

(UK) The British National Health Service (NHS) has denied life-extending treatment to kidney cancer patients because the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) determined the patients were non-exceptional. A definition of exceptionality hasn't been reported.

Arguably, 'exceptionality' is a euphemism for cost.

Coming soon to the U.S.

Arizona Authorities Find Wounded Deputy In Desert

He was shot with a AK47 by those nice folks who cross the border illegally

CASA GRANDE, Ariz. -- Authorities in southern Arizona have found a deputy wounded in a shootout with suspected drug smugglers after a frantic hour-long desert search.

Pinal County sheriff's Lt. Tamatha Villar says the deputy suffered a superficial wound to his abdomen after being shot with an AK-47 assault rifle Friday afternoon. He was flown by helicopter to a hospital in Casa Grande, about 40 miles south of Phoenix.

Thank goodness they found him, prayers for his speedy recovery.

I certainly hope they catch these nice folks who crossed the border illegally and tried to murder this deputy doing his duty.

Video: Soldiers' Lady Gaga Video Kinda Gay, Yet Somehow Awesome

You know the difference between good gay and bad gay? Two hot chicks = good gay. Bad gay is everything else.

So, how does an all male cast lip syncing Lady Gaga's Telephone from a base in Afghanistan pull off something that is both bad gay and yet totally awesome?

Like the Continuum Transfunctioner this video's power is only exceeded by its mystery.

Seriously, at the precise moment that I thought the video couldn't get any gayer (it does: the shirts come off and a drag queen is introduced) I looked down at my feet and saw that I was tapping along to the tune.

It's like a gruesome freeway accident that you cannot turn away from, but worse: you find yourself snapping your fingers to the rhythm of the ambulance sirens and smiling.

Yes, it's that bad. And yes, it's that good.

Without further ado, I present to you the opening and closing exhibits as to why don't ask don't tell ought to be repealed. Behold it in all it's glory!

hansolo2.JPGLet's get one thing straight. I take orders from just one person: me.

Actor, environmental activist and pilot Harrison Ford, who owns seven airplanes, told his environmental critics that he will "start walking everywhere when they start walking everywhere.”

Ford spoke on Capitol Hill on Tuesday about general aviation at an event sponsored by the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association. In light of criticism Ford has received from envrionmentalists about his use of airplanes, CNSNews.com asked him if his environmental activism coupled with his flying was a “contradiction.”

Ford said, “They’re quite right. I’ll start walking everywhere when they start walking everywhere.”

Muslim Who Graffitied War Memorial With "Osama is on his way - Kill Gordon Brown" Gets no Jail Time

Remember, it's not just the graffiti but the fact that it was on a war memorial.

Daily Mail:

Shah admitted spraying the words 'Islam will dominate the world - Osama is on his way' and 'Kill Gordon Brown' on the plinth of the East Staffordshire Borough Council-owned memorial, on December 10 last year.

He was given a two-year conditional discharge and was ordered to pay £500 compensation to the council, plus £85 costs. [MORE]

I think "conditional discharge" is something like probation, which seems kind of lenient for a guy making death threats against a head of government. I can't help but wonder if the light sentence for something like this is explained by Britain's general leniency on all criminals? Or if it was motivated by fear.

At least in the States Mr. Shah would have got a good ass kicking if nothing else.

Thanks to Jen.

Two New Yorkers Charged with Aid to al Qaeda after Yemen Trip

The material support was computer systems modernization and technical advice. The indictment is here. The time frame is November 2007 through March 2010. Hasanoff received $50K in Nov. 2007. Hanafy traveled to Yemen in Feb of 2008.

CBS Two United States citizens residing in Brooklyn, N.Y., have been charged with trying to aid Al Qaeda terrorists. According to the indictment obtained by CBS News, the men, Wesam El-Hanafi, 33, and Sabirhan Hasanoff, 34, are charged with one count of "conspiracy to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization."

The charge carries a maximum sentence of 15 years in prison.

Also according to the indictment, "the defendants would and did agree to provide al Qaeda with, among other things, computer advice and assistance, services, and currency, knowing that al Qaeda had engaged and was engaging in terrorist activity[.]"

Merkwürdigliebe adds: Sounds like the FBI's 'Fly Team' had themselves an excellent adventure in not-exactly-friendly territory

A federal law enforcement source said El-Hanafi and Hasanoff were arrested overseas in a country that "did not want to be identified as being helpful in any way to the U.S." The source would not disclose the country.

Fwance: Journalist, "My Week In Nijab"

Her conclusion:

" I felt as if I am inside a tent [looks like it also...ed]. I couldn't see my feet and when I walked the garment rolled around my legs and I had to slow down. I was terrified I was going to fall on my face "

" I discovered how the face veil isolates the woman as it turns her into someone who cannot interact with people. I felt that after only three days of wearing it "

" Being totally covered made me feel that my body is a disgrace. All men around me turned into sexually obsessed beasts that want to devour me. It is then that I felt I need the veil to protect me from this imminent danger. For the first time in my life, I felt I was a sex bomb and a source of sin "

On her last day, Alexandre met two Muslim women who told her that their mothers and grandmothers never wore the veil although they were deeply religious and that many women wear the full veil in order to attract attention.

Does that mean Mrs. Zach "Abu Talhah al-Amrike" Chesser's wife, Raniella "Umm Talhah's" body is a disgrace? Must be, she covers everything including her eyes. Crossed maybe?

UN Cuts Food Rations in Yemen

Nationally, one third of Yemenis are malnourished and half the kids are stunted from chronic hunger. The refugee population of a quarter million are teetering near starvation already, and the cut in food rations will mean many more deaths from starvation. The US pledged about $5 million in humanitarian aid, and $50 million in military aid. France pledged 200,000 Euros. The other donors, including Saudi Arabia, zippo. The UN will also be cutting food aid to other recipients in Yemen including Somali refugees, girls in schools and children under 5.


(AlertNet) - The U.N. food aid agency says a lack of funds is forcing it to cut rations for people driven from their homes by fighting in northern Yemen, endangering a fragile ceasefire between rebels and the government.

From May, the World Food Programme (WFP) will reduce food assistance for 270,000 displaced people by half until donors provide more money or the funds run out altogether, the organisation's Yemen director Gian Carlo Cirri said on Friday..."There has been a lot of talk within the international community about helping Yemen, but very little money," Cirri said. "In funding humanitarian operations, you are buying stability at a relatively cheap price."

The latest cut means food aid recipients will receive 1,040 kilocalories per person per day - half of what is needed for a healthy life.

Anti-Graham Group, Military Religious Freedom Foundation, Wants Symbol Removed From Army Hospital

Because it will embolden our enemies by making them think Christians are waging a war on Islam WTF?

The group managed to get the Army to dis-invite Evangelist Graham from the National Day of Prayer. I suppose they feel very emboldened now. Assmaggots

DENVER — A religious watchdog group says a cross and religious motto on the emblem of an Army hospital in Colorado violate the constitutional requirement for separation of church and state and should be removed.

The Military Religious Freedom Foundation asked the Army this week to change the emblem of Evans Army Community Hospital at Fort Carson, outside Colorado Springs.

The emblem says “Pro deo et humanitate” or “For God and humanity.”

Wollman said the cross, which has a pointed base, is both an emblem of mercy and a symbol dating to the Middle Ages, when pilgrims carried a cross with a spiked base to mark the site of a camp.

Mikey Weinstein, president of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, said that’s a reference to the Crusades and could embolden U.S. enemies who want to portray the war on terror as a Christian war on Islam.

Those sploding themselves, killing ours and coalition soldiers, killing other Muslims sure as hell are radical Muslims.

Arizona's Immigration Law: Is Texas Next? (Update)

Liberal headline: "Arizona's anti-immigration[?..ed] law stirs up debate in Texas".

Republican State Rep. Debbie Riddle of Tomball defended her push to introduce a controversial immigration law in Texas similar to that of Arizona's. Riddle has said she plans to introduce the measure in the January legislative session.

"My number one priority as an elected official is to make sure that the safety and security of Texans is well established. If I don't do that or do it well, then there is no number two priority," she said. "The opponents of this want to make it a big racial profiling thing. They want to make it a big racist thing. It has nothing to do with that. It has everything to do with safety and security."

Indeed, opponents are playing the race card and Obi One is leading the charge
Washington Times.....The most distinctive characteristic, however, is the incitement of racial conflict. Fascism thrives on fomenting ethnic divisions and hatred, targeting internal race enemies to galvanize supporters behind their leader.

This is what Mr. Obama is doing today. He and his Democratic allies have deliberately fanned the flames of racial tensions over Arizona's immigration law.

Irony: Iran Gets Seat on UN Commission on Women's Rights


Without fanfare, the United Nations this week elected Iran to its Commission on the Status of Women, handing a four-year seat on the influential human rights body to a theocratic state in which stoning is enshrined in law and lashings are required for women judged "immodest."

ust days after Iran abandoned a high-profile bid for a seat on the U.N. Human Rights Council, it began a covert campaign to claim a seat on the Commission on the Status of Women, which is "dedicated exclusively to gender equality and advancement of women," according to its website.

Buried 2,000 words deep in a U.N. press release distributed Wednesday on the filling of "vacancies in subsidiary bodies," was the stark announcement: Iran, along with representatives from 10 other nations, was "elected by acclamation," meaning that no open vote was requested or required by any member states — including the United States.

Manliness Meets Wussidom

Readers may recall the report from a couple weeks ago regarding the Green Party adopting an Anti-Macho Manifesto which was driven, of course, by feminist leadership in the party. Arguably, the intent is to hyper-estrogenize or de-testosteronize the males in society. Simply put, the manifesto outlines a campaign to make men less manly. Consequently, it's hard to dispute the contention that radical feminists are really out to change biology.

Curiously folding into the same theme is a new report which attempts to convince men not to be manly in the boudoir. Specifically, a noted female psychologist, Dr. Pam Spurr, asserts that men shouldn't strive to be long-lasting during sexual episodes since women don't want it. Dr. Spurr states that women won't admit it but their preference is for quick sex, a minute of less would likely be ideal. According to Dr. Spurr:

Women are shy of admitting that short sex sessions actually suit them, because they fear it means they have a low sex drive. But the truth is that quick sex sessions aren't always a curse. For a great many women they are actually a blessing.
Frankly, I would suggest that Dr. Spurr's assertions reflect a minority viewpoint on women's preferences. Nevertheless, her remarks are provided as a revelation oddly in conjunction with a report that a new drug is available to treat premature ejaculation. Obviously, the underlying message is that men should not use the new drug since women prefer premature ejaculators.

I suggest the goal of radical feminists is to redefine manliness, making all men into premature-ejaculating wussies. Readers can decide. (more….)

Warrior Games

Good luck to all in the Warrior Games!!


U.S. Flags Salute Wounded Warrior Athletes

By Samantha L. Quigley

WASHINGTON, April 29, 2010 – The American flags raised over five military installations don’t look any different from the one raised over the U.S. Capitol on any given day, but there is one distinct difference.

These flags will bear the well-wishes of servicemembers stationed around the world for injured soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines and veterans competing in the inaugural Warrior Games in Colorado Springs, Colo., next month.

With the help of the Defense Media Activity and the USO, five American flags found their way to Afghanistan, Germany, Hawaii, Iraq and South Korea, where they were raised over military points of interest. One flew above the USS Arizona in Hawaii, and another over Korea’s demilitarized zone. A third was raised above Germany’s Landstuhl Regional Medical Center. Flags flew over Bagram Airfield, Afghanistan, and Joint Base Balad, Iraq, as well.

Each flag-raising was filmed and will be broadcast with special messages from deployed servicemembers during the Warrior Games opening ceremonies.

For one recipient of a flag, what began as a routine assignment to organize and film the flag-raising turned into much more, especially after he called the Landstuhl public affairs office and explained the project.

“Their response was overwhelming,” said Air Force Tech. Sgt. Leigh Bellinger, who serves with Detachment 4, Air Force News Agency, at Ramstein Air Base, Germany.

The public affairs team in Germany organized a joint-service detail to raise and lower the flag. The detail practiced for more than an hour the day before the actual flag-raising, Bellinger said.

“It was the afternoon of the actual ceremony that it all hit home,” he said. “As I stood in front of those soldiers, Marines, sailors and airmen talking about the flag and the Warrior Games, it hit me -- the importance of what we were doing. This was for our brothers and sisters taking part in the Warrior Games.”

Troops injured in overseas combat zones receive treatment at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center before transport to stateside medical facilities. Landstuhl, therefore, “has special significance for every single wounded warrior taking part in the games,” Bellinger said. “More than likely, they passed through on their way back home from Iraq or Afghanistan.”

Army Staff Sgt. Clinton Carroll, the operations noncommissioned officer in charge for American Forces Network Afghanistan, said the request to fly an American flag wasn’t so unusual.

“Because we are in a combat zone, we are asked to fly lots of American flags for different reasons,” he said. “Each of them has meaning and importance for someone we don’t usually know. This one is unique, because it’s flown specifically for our brothers and sisters in arms and in honor of the sacrifice they have made, some of them here in Afghanistan.”

Carroll asked soldiers of the 82nd Airborne Division if they’d be willing to participate in the ceremony to raise this special flag.

“Not only did they want to do it, but because they are the 82nd, they wanted to do it big,” Carroll said. “They had no issue finding servicemembers to help out with the flag raising … because of the significance of the event. They also wanted to have a formation spelling out ‘USO’ to thank everyone for their dedication to the Warrior Games.”

Carroll had a message for the athletes participating in the Warrior Games, as well.

“I would say to them, regardless of what branch of service they are in, they are heroes to us all,” he said. “I want to wish all the warriors good luck, but I want to especially say, ‘Go Army!’”

Bellinger offered the warrior athletes his best wishes, in the form of “a slow, sharp salute for all my brothers and sisters taking part.”

Nicholas Tovo, DMA’s Hawaii bureau chief, enlisted the help of two wounded warriors who will participate in the Warrior Games to raise the flag over the USS Arizona. Tovo offered a special thanks to everyone who made the flag-raising a success.

“I especially want to thank the servicemembers for participating and everything they have done, and will do, to support our country,” he said.

Once the five flags are back in the United States, members of the Rolling Thunder motorcyclist’s organization will transport them to the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs in time for the Warrior Games opening ceremonies, scheduled for May 10.

Rolling Thunder works to draw attention to prisoner-of-war and missing-in-action issues and veterans causes. The ride will begin May 5 at the site of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attack in New York City, with stops at the Pentagon and Shanksville, Pa., to honor all 9/11 victims.

The Warrior Games begin May 10 and continue through May 14.

ROPMA: Muslims Beat, Sodomizes Christian Barber Over Beard Trimming

Jihad Watch

.... "When Shakeel Cheema saw me shaving his younger brother's beard, he became angry and started vandalizing mirrors, the sound system and chairs, and he desecrated a wooden cross perched on the top of the front mirrors," Masih said. "He also started beating my head with his shoes."[...]

Masih said that he was blindfolded with a black cloth and taken to an unknown place where he was locked in a room. An hour later, Shakeel Cheema and seven others arrived and began striking him with clubs, breaking his ribs, a wrist and leg bones.

"Shakeel Cheema said, 'Now we are going to teach you a real lesson for shaving the beard of a Muslim man," Masih said, and after a long, pained pause he related how Cheema and the seven others sodomized him. "I started bleeding and fell unconscious."[...]

"We submitted an application to the Saddr police twice, but they took no action against Shakeel Cheema and his accomplices," Laal Masih said. The family is appealing to Christian ministers and parliamentarians for assistance.

Still receiving threats of harm if they do not leave the area, family members also said they cannot afford the fees of a standard physician and have resorted to help from lesser trained doctors.

Police have refused to file a First Information Report against Cheema and his accomplices, who all remained at large at press time.

Dear Hamas Supporter: We're Sorry for Calling You a Zionist!

What's the worst thing a Muslim can be called? Not a Nazi. Not a bigot. Not a communist. It's Zionist.

Which is why the Muslim Public Affairs Committee of the UK (MPACUK) had to apologize to Yousef al-Khattab after accusing him of being a Zionist plant after they found out he had been born a .... Jew.

You know, because the hidden hand of the Jew is behind every Muslim atrocity. Jews are just trying to make Muslims look bad.

Once convinced of Khattab's sincerity towards finishing what Hitler had started, they had to retract.

But the hilarity of the original accusation against Yousef is only out done by the hilarity of the apology. You see, in the apology Yousef denies being a supporter of al Qaeda (which is empirically false: "I love [Osama bin Laden] him like I can't begin to tell you]) but he does fess up to being a supporter of Hamas:

I see the Hamas authority on Ghaza as a model of how Islam should be established in our times.
Which doesn't seem to bother MPACUK:
The MPACUK team were very glad when we heard back from him, and instantly agreed he deserves an apology.
The antisemetic terror apologists at the MPACUK apologizing to a Jewish born terror supporter. The irony comes in layers these days!

5000 Barrels a Day?

What a freaking clusterf*ck:

NEW ORLEANS – A massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico is even worse than believed and as the government grows concerned that the rig's operator is ill-equipped to contain it, officials are offering a military response to try to avert a massive environmental disaster along the ecologically fragile U.S. coastline.

Speaking Thursday on NBC's "Today" show, an executive for BP PLC, which operated the oil rig that exploded and sank last week, said the company would welcome help from the U.S. military.

What a waste, 5000 barrels a day of light sweet crude. Which speaks to the incredible potential of these fields. And also to the risk of extracting this oil is great. The costs will be huge.

Also it seems a bit odd, this is the worst accident with a drilling platform that I can recall. Drilling is inherently risky. Especially when establishing a new live well like this. The recent record of offshore drilling has been very safe.

But there are other risks.


In late 2001, local authorities disrupted a plot by the al Qaeda-linked Jemaah Islamiyah to attack U.S. warships anchored off Singapore. As many as 15 people comprised an al Qaeda cell arrested by Moroccan police in May 2002 for plotting to use Zodiac speedboats loaded with explosives for suicide attacks against U.S., British, and possibly other NATO warships transiting the Strait of Gibraltar. (6) The attack in Aqaba and other recent indications demonstrate ongoing if not increased planning against Western navies. Moreover, although likely an attack of opportunity originally aimed at the oil platforms, the 2004 Firebolt incident perpetrated by Abu Musab al-Zarqawi's Iraqi al Qaeda network exposed the vulnerabilities of U.S. Navy boarding teams, despite operating in a seemingly compliant environment.
I'm not suggesting this was a terrorist attack. Only that it is known that al-Qaeda has an active threat against us and in the past has considered attacking oil platforms. A possibility that needs to be considered.

Hopefully in time we will learn the cause of the explosion and the reason that all the safety measures failed. I

n the mean time pray for those on the southern coast. Its looking to be one of the worst spills ever.

Hakimullah Mehsud Alive?

I hope the hell not. Its not like we have hellfire missiles to just waste on these Jihadis. Oh, we do? In that case, put the target back up.

Fox News

Pakistani Taliban chief Hakimullah Mehsud is now believed to have survived a U.S. missile strike earlier this year, but has lost clout within the militant network, a senior intelligence official said Thursday.

The revelation contradicts initial confidence among U.S. and Pakistani intelligence officials that the brash militant leader had been killed in a mid-January missile attack in the Waziristan stretch of the northwest tribal belt bordering Afghanistan.

The Taliban consistently denied Mehsud was killed, but declined to offer evidence he was alive, saying it would compromise his safety.

But Mehsud's power has lessened, and other Taliban commanders, such as Waliur Rehman, are now overshadowing him, the official said.

Also, it is claimed that he was the only person to survive the attack. Ansar al-Mujihadeen was quick to point out that it was a miracle and, I'm sure its coming if I know my akhi, Allah's divine will. I just threw up a little.

"This is a terrible crime committed by Egyptian security against simple Palestinian workers who were trying to earn their daily bread," Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum to The Associated Press.

Damn you Hamas, stop stealing our leftist's ideas, you bastards!

"We cannot go back to the slave trade, slave patrol era, where ... free men or African Americans that were free were arrested, put in jail and then sent back to the plantations," said Juan Carlos Ruiz, advocacy director of the Latino Federation of Greater Washington.

Oh, and Egypt? Let our people go!

Thanks to Dr. Eviler. Who will never be eviler than me, no matter how hard they try.

I'm A CIA Bureaucrat, And Boy Does My Ass Hurt

Because Brad Thor keeps kicking it. Over and over again.

Under Kappes’ stewardship, the beleaguered CIA has been on a rapid downward spiral culminating in one of the deadliest attacks in CIA history. On December 30, 2009, a suicide bomber was driven onto F.O.B Chapman, a key Central Intelligence Agency facility in Khost, Afghanistan where tradecraft and common sense had been tossed out the window. When the bomber detonated, nine people (seven of whom were working for the CIA, including its chief of base) were killed, and six others were seriously wounded.

As Thor points out in his piece, the CIA is full of hard working dedicated people who want to do their job to the best of their ability. They're being shortchanged by a bunch of power hungry ineffectual governmental bureaucratic suckups.

Why Greece Matters to You - the American Taxpayer

An excellent assessment of the great Euro meltdown and why you should be paying attention to it. From Rockonomics:

First, Bear Stearns made a bunch of stupid bets on sub-prime mortgages, and you – the American Taxpayer – bailed them out to the tune of $29 billion in guarantees to JPMorgan, (who bought Bear Stearns only on the condition that the government assume that debt.)

Then, Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac made a bunch of stupid bets on subprime mortgages and you – the American Taxpayer – bailed them out to the tune of $800 billion.

The Lehman Brothers went belly up, which forced AIG to pay billions of dollars in claims on credit default swaps – claims they were unable to pay, so you – the American Taxpayer – bailed out AIG to the tune of $145 billion.

Then the Big Wall Street Banks went kablooie, because they made stupid bets and you – The American Taxpayer – bailed them out with $800 billion in loans. (No, you will not see any return on that “investment”, other than the comfort of watching Goldman Sachs give out $14 billion in bonuses last year.)

Then, Chrysler and GM both came to Washington with their hands out because they made stupid agreements with the UAW and stupid investment decisions, and you – the American Taxpayer – bailed them out with “only” about $20 billion.

What have you – the American Taxpayer – received for all this largess doled into the laps of these idiot gamblers? You have the worst economy since the great depression. You have over 22% of the population “under-employed”. You have plummeting home values. You have more tax. You have known tax cheats heading Treasury and the IRS.

Now Greece is going to go bankrupt, and guess who is going to bailout that government? The IMF gives money to Greece. 20% of the IMF’s funding comes from the US Taxpayer, so you – the American Taxpayer – are now sending $7 billion to the Greek government so it can pay its bills.

Spain, Portugal, Ireland, Italy, France and the UK are in line for the same thing.

What can you do about it?

You could start by re-reading the US Declaration of Independence and contemplating this phrase:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness.

When the colonists determined that the government of Great Britain – their government – had become destructive to the very people it was supposed to protect, they moved to “alter or abolish” that government and establish a new one that would be most likely to secure their life, liberty and happiness.

Iran Issues Fatwa Against Hot Tan Chicks

bikini2520tansmall.JPGDon Surber:

From the London Telegraph: “Suntanned women to be arrested under Islamic dress code: Iran has warned suntanned women and girls who looked like ‘walking mannequins’ will be arrested as part of a new drive to enforce the Islamic dress code.”

Oh, ho ho. Foolish Muslims in a Muslim theocracy.

Not like the United States.

Well, except for that 10% sales tax on tans that President Obama included in Obamacare (the tax begins in July — wonder how many IRS agents will be sent to inspect tans to see if they are natural or not).

Now there's a job I could get into. Seriously who is against hot tan chicks?

In my experience hot and "OMG she has no tan lines anywhere!" like totally overrides other qualities like say narcissistic sociopath.

At least for a while ;)

The Ark?


A group of Chinese and Turkish evangelical explorers say wooden remains they have discovered on Mount Ararat in eastern Turkey are the remains of Noah's Ark.

The group claims that carbon dating
proves the relics are 4,800 years old, meaning they date to around the same time the ark was said to be afloat. Mt. Ararat has long been suspected as the final resting place of the craft by evangelicals and literalists hoping to validate biblical stories.

Yeung Wing-Cheung, from the Noah's Ark Ministries International research team that made the discovery, said: "It's not 100 percent that it is Noah's Ark, but we think it is 99.9 percent that this is it."

There have been several reported discoveries of the remains of Noah's Ark over the years, most notably a find by archaeologist Ron Wyatt in 1987. At the time, the Turkish government officially declared a national park around his find, a boat-shaped object stretched across the mountains of Ararat.

Pretty cool. I'd love to see more information on this dig.

Ohio Terror Sheikh Salah Sultan: Jews Murder Non-Jews and Use Their Blood to Knead Passover Matzos

From MEMRI comes this clip of top American Islamic scholar Salah Sultan on Hamas' Al-Aqsa TV last month ranting about how Jews murder non-Jews to use their blood to make their Passover matzos. Lovely.

Clip transcript courtesy of MEMRI:

I want our brothers, and the whole world, to know what's going on these days, during Passover. Read Dr. Naghuib Al-Kilani's book, Blood for the Matzos of Zion. Every year, at this time, the Zionists kidnap several non-Muslims [sic] – Christians and others... By the way, this happened in a Jewish neighborhood in Damascus. They killed the French doctor, Toma, who used to treat the Jews and others for free, in order to spread Christianity. Even though he was their friend and they benefited from him the most, they took him on one of these holidays and slaughtered him, along with the nurse. Then they kneaded the matzos with the blood of Dr. Toma and his nurse. They do this every year.

The world must know these facts about the Zionist entity and its terrible corrupt creed. The world should know this.

This is not Sultan's first appearance at Jawa. Last August we noted his previous position as resident scholar for the infamous Noor Islamic Cultural Center in Ohio that was at the center of the Rifqa Bary case. No doubt the Columbus Dispatch will send their crack religion reporter, Meredith "Hijab" Heagney, over to the Noor Center to get to the bottom of the matter.

Until recently Salah Sultan was a member of the Fiqh Council of North America, the judicial body of Obama's favorite Muslim group, the Islamic Society of North America. He is also the former director of tarbiyah for the Muslim American Society and the founder of their Islamic American University. MAS was the group that paid for Congressman Keith Ellison's hajj trip last year.

But don't worry. Ohio Homeland Security director William Vedra says there is no terrorism problem in Ohio...

Below the fold is another video clip featuring Salah Sultan where he states that the Day of Judgment will not arrive until Muslims kill all of the Jews, threatening the US with destruction, and citing approvingly the anti-Jewish Protocols of the Elders of Zion.

MPACUK: Yousef al-Khattab Involved in Jewish Plot to Make Muslims Look Bad

Wait, you mean Joseph "Yousef al-Khattab" Cohen is a Jew? Right. Next, you'll be telling me that the Osmonds are Mormon.

Muslim Public Affairs Committee of the UK:

The right wing media jumped at the chance to further demonise Muslims by highlighting the story as much as possible, but what they failed to tell you is that the Radical Muslim group that made the threats was apparently founded and run by Joseph Cohen, a former Israeli Radical who use to live in a settlement in the West Bank. Joseph Cohen (aka Yousef al-Khattab) apparently...

This is not the first time people have masqueraded as Muslims to demonise them and it probably won't be the last. What is criminal is how the media lap up the story without checking facts and then failing to apologise. One only has to look at the media attention thrown at Al Muhajiroon and the recent Glen Jenvey/Sun saga.

The hidden hand of the Jew, once again revealed by the moderate Muslims over at MPACUK! Nothing antisemitic about that.

Ignoring, of course, this particular "Jew's" thoughts on the "Zionist entity".

Khattab, himself an active member at the more radical Islamic Awakening forum, calls them out here and starts a thread which has the group calling MPACUK "assclowns" at first but quickly degenerates into a discussion as to why the Khattab-Mosad conspiracy is nutty but that any one who denies that the international Freemasonry-Illuminati plot to control the world just doesn't see the truth.

Pass the popcorn people, this is getting fun. Thanks to Jen.

Updated: Yemen: British Ambassador's Would be Murderer Studied in the UK? No, in Jail

The 26Sep.net, a Web site linked to Yemen's military and security service, identified the suicide bomber in Monday's attack on a convoy carrying the British Ambassador as Othman Ali al-Selwi, a 22-year-old student from the southern city of Taiz. No one but the bomber was killed, three passersby were slightly injured. There's a heck of a photo of Othman's head sitting on a curb though.

(Head of Central Security and presidential nephew) Yahya Saleh's newspaper, Naba News reports the suicide bomber studied in Britain for nearly two years on a scholarship awarded by the British embassy and returned to Yemen a few months ago. He had no overt extremist leanings his family said. Naba's sources theorize that he was radicalized in the UK or else the bombing was a reaction to a personal issue with the Embassy related to his studies.

Other sources say the 22-year old al Selwi was detained some time ago in a National Security prison in Sana'a and he paid regular visits to the National Security's headquarters in Sana'a upon his release.

This, though, is a ridiculous suggestion: WaPo: A statement by the Yemeni Embassy in Washington suggested that the attack may have been in retaliation for a Yemeni operation that killed two suspected al-Qaeda operatives in the western city of Hodeida on April 18.

If we recall, the two "al Qaeda operatives" killed were carrying IDs from the National Security and one was an agent of the Central Security.

An earlier attack on an official convoy targeted South Korean investigators in March 2009. They were in Yemen following the murder of three South Korean tourists. The route of the motorcade was disseminated to the so called al Qaeda by subverted elements within Yemen's security forces, Parliamentarians charged. No was was killed except the bomber in that attack.

Update: Yemen rounds up usual suspects, father confirms the bomber was recently released from jail:

Reuters, WaPo; Yemeni police arrested dozens of al Qaeda suspects in sweeps a day after a suicide bomber tried to kill Britain's ambassador to Yemen, security officials said Tuesday.

At the 22-year-old bomber's home near Sanaa, his father told Reuters that he condemned his son's actions and that he had tried to get him to marry and find a job, before the young man went missing around six weeks ago.

Othman Ali al-Sulwi, who wore an explosive belt when he threw himself at a convoy taking Ambassador Tim Torlot to work Monday, had spent two years in prison before being released at the start of this year, his father said.

Insider: Ohio Homeland Security multicultural affairs director Omar Alomari sued his sexual harassment victim

***Sticky until noon. Scroll below for more updates.***

alomari.jpgContinuing our examination into the Ohio Department of Homeland Security, our correspondent inside the department adds new details concerning its multicultural affairs director Omar Alomari. Last week we reported that Alomari had been fired from his faculty position from Columbus State Community College for violating the school's sexual harassment policy. Namely, he had been sleeping with his students while they were taking his classes. This would be none of our business if it weren't for the fact that Ohio Homeland Security director William Vedra continues to cite Alomari's academic career to defend them both against their critics.

Now our correspondent adds an important new detail to Alomari's "multicultural affairs" efforts:

One important sidebar to Omar's firing by Columbus State is that several years later he ended up suing his sexual harassment victim for defamation and emotional distress. This was after he lost his case against Columbus State before the state civil rights commission when he claimed he had been discriminated against for his religious and ethnic background. In the lawsuit Omar claimed that in reporting his illicit activities to the higher-ups, his victim had defamed him. He lost that case too, but it financially ruined his victim. She not only lost her marriage but had to spend a significant sum to defend herself against Omar's baseless charges.

I wish I could say that Omar's sexual harassment stopped there. Here in the office he treats the women that work here with contempt and regularly making sexually suggestive remarks. When two women complained about his behavior, it was quickly hushed up and the women were moved to another department with better paying jobs. Omar defended himself by saying that it was a misunderstanding over "Middle Eastern customs." A CAIR attorney immediately got involved on his behalf. Next he will demand that we dress in burqas to accommodate his religious beliefs.

No one knows why Bill Vedra decided to cover-up for Omar. He was hired by the previous administration and that was as good of an opportunity to get rid of him. I'm not the only one in our office outraged that our "multicultural affairs" director (or community engagement, whatever they are calling it today) is a serial sexual harasser.

Based on information provided to us by our correspondent, we contacted the Franklin County, Ohio Court of Common Pleas who confirmed the details of the case (99 CVC 01 00421). Omar Alomari's victim spent nearly two years defending herself against his baseless law suit (she eventually won a summary judgment). He claimed tortious interference with a contract/business relation, intentional infliction of emotional distress, negligence and defamation. He lost on all counts.

Our correspondent makes a fair point: is this the best they can do for a "multicultural affairs" director? The women's rights groups in Ohio should be in an uproar that he not only has his position at Ohio Homeland Security, but he continues to teach at several colleges and universities (Ohio State, Otterbein, Franklin) in the area after having been fired previously for sexual harassment. His bogus lawsuit and civil rights case demonstrates he believed it his right to sleep with his infidel students without consequence.

Hamas Terrorist Behind Murder of Israelis Met His 72Virgin Goats


Ali Ismail Ahmed Sawiti said to Mahmoud al-Mabhouh [ Hamas dead top honcho] upon seeing his virgin goats - WTF? Mahmoud replied, "You're lucky, I got 72 pigs". "BTW, wanna share"?


Ali Ismail Ahmed Sawiti, a wanted member of the Hamas terrorist organization was killed during a joint IDF-Border Police-ISA arrest operation in the village of Beit ‘Awwa, south of Hebron, last night.

A force surrounded the building in which Sawiti was hiding and called on him to surrender. Sawiti refused and opened fire at the forces, who than used engineering tools in addition to firing at the building’s exterior wall, in order to cause him to surrender. The terrorist continued to fire at the force, and was ultimately killed.

Sawiti, born in 1968, a resident of Beit ‘Awwa, was a member of a Hamas militant squad. He executed five shooting attacks and an explosive device attack between 1999- 2004.

Somali Pirates Flee From alShabaab

Guardian - The Somali pirate gang who have been holding a British couple hostage since October fled with their captives yesterday after militants linked to al-Qaida took over their territory.

Paul and Rachel Chandler, who are both in their 50s, were bundled into a car yesterday when al-Shabaab insurgents moved into the pirate stronghold of Harardhere in the coastal region of north Somalia.[...]

Al-Shabaab militants are chasing us," Yare told The Associated Press.

The Chandlers were kidnapped in October while on a yachting holiday. The pirates seized their 38ft yacht in the Indian Ocean as they sailed toward Tanzania.

Yare claimed that al-Shabaab has offered to pay £1.2m for the Chandlers but that his group is demanding £1.6m.

He said that pirates would abandon the Chandlers if the militants close in on them "because our lives are more important to us than holding on to them".

Not good news for the300-plus foreign hostages the pirates are holding.

Obama Buried Damning Report

When I first read this over at Ace of Spades, I though, where the hell is the Burning Skull of Importance, but the more I think about it.....business as usual. "Trust me, I'm Obama"

The economic report released last week by Health and Human Services, which indicated that President Barack Obama's health care "reform" law would actually increase the cost of health care and impose higher costs on consumers, had been submitted to the office of HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius more than a week before the Congressional votes on the bill, according to career HHS sources, who added that Sebelius's staff refused to review the document before the vote was taken.

"The reason we were given was that they did not want to influence the vote," says an HHS source. "Which is actually the point of having a review like this, you would think."

Jawa Report Exclusive: Zach's Nighttime Rituals Revealed

Yesterday Rusty posted on cock blocked Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab's martyr video that ABC aired snippets of. It sounds like al-Qaeda in Yemen has a longer version that includes dickless, shooting from the soon-to-be-crisp hip, as well as an interview with Anwar al-Awlaki.

Reports from my akhi who have seen the video mention that Anwar will chat about US drones, US bombing in Yemen, ruling on missionary position with piglets, and the treasonous Yemeni government. I can only give one hint to keep you reeling until the official video is released through AQIP's normal channels....pigs dig the mission. (H/T to United Islamic Jihad for that confirmation)

Anyway, where I'm going with this is, what does our new best friend Zacharyia "abu talhah al-amerike" Chesser think about this impending release? For a little indication as related to the rectum of the world that is terrorist forums, lets ask Asadullah Alshishani at Ansar al-Mujihadeen. He is a mainstay at Ansar and his signature is as follows:

I admit, I'm a bad guy. A bandit, a terrorist. Okay. So, I'm a terrorist. But what would you call them (the Russians)? If they are keepers of constitutional order, if they are anti-terrorists, then I spit on all these agreements and nice words. And I want to spit on the whole world if the whole world spits on me.

Boofuckinghoo. So what does he think? "I am bristoling to see the offical release!" Whoa, that's ghey!

Okay, so he's a big fan of jihad propaganda. Got it. What about Zach? Jawa Report has it and it won't fail to impress!

I present to you, the words of a flaming jihadisexual, Zacharyia "abu talhah al-amerike" Chesser.

Subhaan-Allah, I am not going to be able to sleep waiting for this. Man... they should not leak things early. It makes you wait too anxiously. In sha'a Allah it is practice in sabr.

Zach, the only thing that leaked early was your...forget it. Go see your doctor. He may be able to get you something to extend your intrarectal ejaculation latency time. Punching the monkey in your mom's basement to Jihad videos will not help your wife look past the Amish/ZZ Top thing that attached to your face like that scene out of Alien.

UK: No Mocking in Public

Cause its anti-social

Jihad Watch: "Athiest who mocked Jesus and Muslims hit with Asbo," from The Asian News, April 26 (thanks to Twostellas):
An atheist who left leaflets mocking Jesus, Islam and the Pope in an international airport's prayer room has been given an Asbo.Harry Taylor, 59, from Salford, left home-made posters at Liverpool John Lennon Airport three times in 2008.

The self-styled philosopher denied three counts of causing religiously aggravated harassment, alarm or distress but a jury unanimously found him guilty in less than an hour.

Good question. Lets compare and contrast.

As Jesus was dying on the cross the Romans and others mocked him. He asked the Lord to forgive them.

If you insult or mock the Prophet Muhammad the penalty is death.

So which one is the more likely to have been "outraged?"

Evidence: Yes, Abu Talhah al Amrike Really Did Threaten South Park Creators

Since my Dad died shortly after we first broke the news that South Park's creators had been threatened by one of the guy's behind the Revolution Muslim website, I've been kind of out of the loop.

Not so far out of the loop that I didn't know that we've gotten virtually none of the credit for breaking the story, so that's a little irritating, but out of the loop nonetheless. Also that people over at George Mason University's MSU denied knowing the man who had made the threats -- even though many of their leaders are Facebook pals with him. How do you spell taqiyah?

Another thing, though, that caught my attention were the replies by Zach "Abu Talhah al Amrike" Chesser that he wasn't threatening Matt Stone and Trey Parker, he was only making the observation that they might be killed for blaspheming he-who-must-not-be named.

You know, warning them in Good Samaritan fashion and what not.

Let me just answer Zach's denials that he was threatening Stone and Parker with a few observations.

First, no one ever accused Zach of being brave. Instead of fighting for Allah, he is safe in suburban Washington, DC. He is a pussy. The kind of pussy who believes his job is inciting the believers (Quran 4:84) to violence, not to do that violence himself. Like Muhammad, Abu Hamza, bin Laden, and Hitler, Zach and people like him never personally kill any one. You don't have to worry about that.

But, I cannot let him get away with these denials that he was threatening Stone and Parker. He was.

Before he ever posted on Revolution Muslim he twittered the same sentiments and also posted on an Islamic Forum. I archived both of these threats knowing in advance that once this hit the media Zach would pull back and try to explain them away (just like his mentors Samir Khan and Yousef al Khattab once did).

First, the Twitter threat:

May Allah kill Matt Stone and Trey Parker and burn them in Hell for all eternity.
And a screenshot.


Sounds like a threat to me. Especially given the added context that the man making the statement once used an image of Osama bin Laden for the banner on his blog.

But, Zach might argue that he was only praying that God would kill Stone and Parker, not that he or any radical Islamist would actually carry out God's will by murdering them (like they did with Theo Van Gogh). No, he was just hoping an tornado would strike.

Okay, maybe. But then how do we explain Zach's threat posted over at the Ansar forum?

He starts the thread out with this title: "South Park Insults The Prophet Muhammad Salaa Allahu 'Alayhi Wa Salam In 200th Episode". He then posts a picture of the murdered Theo Van Gogh and asks the question, "Theo Van Gogh - Have Matt Stone And Trey Parker Forgotten This?"

Here's an image of that part of the original post.


Zach then quotes this news article about the South Park episode which had many people speculating would be canceled.

He then asks, "asks, "Where do they live?". Meaning where do Parker and Stone live.


Followed by a link to a Huffington Post article describing where Parker and Stone live.

And how do we know this is the same Zach Chesser who goes by the online name of "Abu Zacharia" and "Abu Talhah al-Amrike"? Here's how the post was signed:


The Mujahid Blog being owned by one Zachary Chesser, formerly of George Mason University, and more recently seen doing street Dawah -- not in New York, as is being reported by the MSM, but in Washington DC and in nearby mosques.

After praying that Allah would kill Parker and Stone, warning them that they will share the same fate as the murdered Theo Van Gogh, and then giving clues as to how angry Islamists might actually hunt them down -- Zach actually has the nerve to say that he wasn't threatening them?

Two words: Bull & Shit.

Also, Zach was complaining to a mutual friend of ours just a couple of weeks ago that he was no longer trolling her comments section because she wasn't producing enough page views to his own website to make him famous.

Hey Zach: you're welcome.

Video: Underwear Bomber Pretty Much as Retarded as We all Thought he Was

Here's a hint: if you're going to fire from the prone position then it might help if you get off your ass and onto your belly!



We have the video, but the guys over at The Blotter beat me to the punch and they've got all the relevant details about Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab's boilerplate martyr statement: the Jews, the Crusaders, death to America, blah blah blah blah.

Other than the insanely funny vidcap of the would-be mass murderer, it's pretty standard stuff.

UPDATE: On double checking, I don't have the video. I had downloaded a video in Arabic earlier this morning and hadn't yet opened it. I had assumed, after the Blotter story came out, that this was it. But it wasn't. My bad. Sorry for that. Never assume and what not.

If any one does have the video, send a link. I'd love to see it.

Thank You From Rusty (sticky)

***sticky scroll down for newer posts***

Dear friends,

Thank you so much for your overwhelming support. The passing of my Father was not easy, but your kind words did actually help.

For the hundreds of you who donated money to help my family differ expenses, thank you. It really helped. Enough money was raised to completely cover all of our expenses.

For those of you who have been here before you know how hard it is to have to worry about expenses on top of dealing all the funeral arrangements -- all the while dealing with your own grief and the grief of loved ones.

If you don't have life insurance get it now. If you haven't yet bought a cemetery plot or arranged for cremation do it now. If you haven't made legal and financial arrangements do it now. If you don't then your family will be left to do all these things at a time when they should be mourning. It is a moral obligation you owe to those who will survive you.

I'll try and write some thank you notes over the next few days. If you helped by donating money and don't get something from me soon, please accept my apologies. Sometimes the notification of payments received gets diverted to my spam folder while other times it goes to my inbox -- all without any particular rhyme or reason.

Again, thank you all for you well wishes, prayers, karma, and general support.

Morocco Breaks Up Cell Linked to alQaeda


RABAT (Reuters) - Morocco's government said on Monday it broke up a cell linked to al Qaeda that was planning assassinations and acts of sabotage, suggesting an undercurrent of Islamist militancy lives on in the north African country.

The group, which had 24 members, also recruited Moroccan citizens to send them to conflict areas including Afghanistan, Iraq and Somalia, state news agency MAP cited the Interior Ministry as saying.

Four members had previously served jail terms for terrorism offences, according to the ministry.

It said the group's members would appear before a judge when the police investigation ends but did not clarify whether they had been formally charged.

The group's members "were preparing to carry out assassinations and acts of sabotage within the country, notably targeting the security services and foreign interests in Morocco," the ministry said in a statement carried by MAP.

How's Morocco Joey (aka Yousef alKhattab)?

Suicide Bomber Attacks UK Amb in Yemen

No injuries except to the bomber. Some reports said it was a suicide bomber but the Brits say small bomb. The state news agency SABA says the device was a suicide vest and the bombers head was found three houses away. News Yemen identifies the attacker as 22 year old Othman Ali al-Selwi, who was trained in Mareb province. The attack on a convoy is not the first. In March 2009, al Qaeda attacked the motorcade of South Korean officials who were in Sana'a to investigate a lethal suicide attack on South Koran tourists days earlier.

(CNN) -- The British ambassador to Yemen survived an attack on his convoy in the capital, Sanaa, Monday morning, the British Foreign and Commonwealth Office said.

"There was [a] small explosion beside the British Ambassador's car. He was unhurt. No other Embassy staff or British Nationals were injured," a statement said. Initial reports said two Yemenis -- a man and a woman -- were injured in the attack and taken to a nearby hospital. The convoy carrying Tim Torlot, 52, was near Berlin park and a short distance from the British embassy at the time of the blast.

Iowa Hawk Fights to Prevent Global Cooling from Volcanic Ash Cloud

You can always depend on Iowa Hawk. They've been emitting all the carbon they can over there, to prevent your summer from being stolen by the giant cloud of volcanic ash that threatens to rob the northern latitudes of Bikini Season.

Worthy contestants all, but sadly only one can claim the coveted title of Grand Champion Carbonator -- and its windfall prize of 1,000,000 Iowahawk carbon credits. Emails have been coming in expressing support for their favorite cars, motorcycles, boats and thermonuclear missiles. To all of you who demanded I name President Obama as repeat champion after his latest Earth Day jumbo jet joy ride, you certainly have a point; but that would be unfair, and Iowahawk is all about fairness.

Science Forgets Volcanoes Emit CO2 and Sulphur Dioxide

Earth and Sky mentions the global cooling that can be caused by ash clouds, even a nutbadg theory about thick ice "corking" volcanoes (LMAO!!) yet leaves out any mention of the gaseous emissions of Volcanoes or how the ash works to offset any warming that might be caused by those emissions. Lest someone get the idea that The Lord knows what he is doing and has never approved of climate stasis.

Just one more example of the al-Gore science of omission that is being fed to young minds.

Science, the latest thing utterly destroyed by politics.

al-Qaeda is Boring


Fox has just announced that the ticking clock is winding down -- this is 24's last season. So is this another case of the writers of 24 predicting the future?

"It probably doesn't change our analysis too much," McNeal says. "But certainly suggests something about pop culture-wise thinking about terrorism. Maybe we're all just bored with it."

Boredom is like a death sentence for terrorists. This is one way these movements can end: like 24, they lose their audience.

The article also mentions that must everyone in danger of being killed by al-Qaeda are other Muslims. Who aren't exactly eager to trade the current set of butchers in charge of the ME for the even greater butchery of al-Qaeda.
When it comes to al-Qaida, Cronin sees the group waning because it is losing support among the world's Muslims.

"You can really see a sea change in the Muslim world with respect to its attitude toward al-Qaida," she said. "And I think there is a broad feeling that al-Qaida has hurt Muslims more than anyone else."

According to the Combating Terrorism Center at West Point, 99 percent of al-Qaida's victims in 1997 outside the war zones of Afghanistan and Iraq were non-Western. In 2008, 96 percent of them were. Cronin says that those kinds of numbers -- not just drone attacks -- could lead to al-Qaida's undoing.

I admit that I for one am pretty bored of al-Qaeda type Islamic terrorist dogma. Its the the same old Death to this Death to that Death to the other broken record. I'm almost even tired of making fun of the extremists.

But there are still a sizable amount of support for al-Qaeda, if support runs at only 5 percent that still a pool of 75 million people. That is too large a threat to allow boredom to lull us into complacency.

Stolen Valor Act

(Stamford, Connecticut) A 22-year-old failed U.S. Army recruit, Damian Pace, has been accused of violating the Stolen Valor Act, a federal law prohibiting the unauthorized wearing of U.S. military uniforms, ranks and insignia. If convicted, Pace could receive six months in prison and a $5,000 fine.

Pace, who was discharged from Army medic training in 2007 for "motivational reasons," was arrested last week and released on $10,000 bond.

He is accused of wearing a U.S. Army uniform while attending paramedic training courses and during other occasions. Several badges and tabs for tactical and medical expertise and service in a war zone were affixed to the uniforms, documents allege.

Records indicate that Pace said he knew it was wrong to impersonate a U.S. Army soldier but he wanted to "look cool."

It's worth noting that the Stolen Valor Act is a point of contention among some people who believe that it's too broadly applicable, capturing a wide variety of instances where valor wasn't really intended to be stolen.

A Not So Brief Overview of Appeasement

Or the history sucking Islam's ass for little or no gain.

But devotees of happy endings will be glad to hear that after losing several wars with those same weapons, the United States finally won the bidding war for one slightly used alliance with Egypt. At a cost of only a few billion dollars a year and turning a blind eye to the persecution of Christian Copts. And things have never been better. The Obama Administration recently slashed funds for promoting democracy in Egypt by 50 percent off. Which is a discount when you think about it, because 50 percent off Egyptian democracy is a bargain, when you consider that it's an item much harder to find than platinum or gold.

Upon further investigation, intelligence authorities have uncovered a substantial amount of activity by Chesser in another extremist website called MuslimAssPounders.com. Zach Chesser has made several concerning post such as:
"When I die, I hope I become one of Muhammid's virgins! Just thinking about his sun-burnt staff inside of me and that rugged beard tickling my back makes me quiver with delight. He can blow sandy loads on my belly until the heavens collapse... it's gonna be so hot even Allah will ask to film it!"

Tarek Fatah calls out secular Canadian press over embracing Tariq Ramadan, complicity in stealth jihad

This video is must watching. He really gets revved up about three minutes in. What is important about Tarek Fatah's statement is that his ire is directed at the secular media and Western intelligentsia dhimmis who embrace rabid Islamist Tariq Ramadan (see Caroline Fourest's indispensable book, Brother Tariq) whose agenda is nothing short of Islamicizing the West and the imposition of sharia. The statement that stands out for me was this: "Tariq Ramadan differs from Osama bin Laden only in tactics, not in strategy." This is the essence of the Muslim Brotherhood's "civilizational-jihadist process" of destroying the West from within by our own hands.

Oh, and concerning Ramadan and his father, Said Ramadan, being on the CIA's payroll prior to 9/11, see this 2006 article by Robert Dreyfuss. What was their job (as Fatah identifies)? Delegitimizing moderate and secular Muslims. This catastrophic "outreach" continues today unabated with government "outreach" to groups like CAIR, ISNA, etc.

Seriously, watch this whole thing.

Satan Welcomes His Human Minions Home

The Islamic State of Iraq has confirmed that Amir-ul-Mumineen Abu Umar Al-Baghdadi and the Secretary of War Sheikh Abu Hamza Al-Mujahir has joined the caravans of martyrs.

What do the mujihadeen have to say...

"May Allah grant them place in Jannah, alongside the martyr maulana Abu Musab al-Zarqawi."

"Mawlana Abu Umar Al-Baghdadi and Shaykina Abu Hamza al-Muhajer is alive... they is alive in the heart of the green birds.."

"Maasha'Allah, look at the smiling faces of the shuhadaa'..."

So romantical. Bwahahahahaha. Smiles on the face and green birds? My ass. There was bravely anything left of their face and those green birds are vultures picking at their rotted corpses. More ISI FAIL.

Mahmoud and Bobby

Bobby and Mahmoud.jpg(Harare, Zimbabwe) On Thursday, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad arrived in Harare for talks with Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe.

Ahmadinejad was greeted with an 21-gun salute and a military flyover. Reportedly, trade agreements between the two nations are expected to be finalized and Ahmadinejad will open the Zimbabwe International Trade Fair.

Most Zimbabweans have viewed the whole reciprocal invitation as a tasteless joke.

“Here is a man who has been violently crushing protesters in his own country after a suspect election, and we were among the first to congratulate him and now we invite him to grace our shop window… We must have a severe case of economic suicidal syndrome,” said a Bulawayo businessman.

Other than tyrannical regimes, it's not clear exactly what else Iran has in common with Zimbabwe.

GMU Muslim Student Association Faculty Member: I Have No Knowledge Of Zach "Abu Talhah Al-Amrike" Chesser -- but, of course, Zach is pretty well connected to them

Update on South Park.

In FNC's article on Zach, GMU MSA stated they didn't know anything about Zach.

Chesser, for his part, declined to indicate exactly what led him to join the group. A faculty member for George Mason University's Muslim Student Association said he had no knowledge of Chesser, who began attending the school in fall 2008 before dropping out in his second semester.
Oh really, GMU MSA Facebook says otherwise. Umm Talhah is his wife, friend of Zainab Hassan (Public Relations Officer). Click all images to enlarge.

And friends of Fatuma Yasin (Sisters Vice President) Note: Dar Al-Hijrah Islamic Center in Falls Church, Virginia - in left hand corner - one hell of a breeding ground for terrorists.

Update II: It appears too many people were posting offensive images, here is her reply

Censorship is bad, mmkay, so I'm not going to delete all the posts on this Wall, but as the creator of this event on Facebook, I'll now mark myself as "not attending" because, frankly, I don't want to be around most of you people.

Hatred breeds hatred, and tolerance and respect breeds tolerance and respect. This event was not supposed to be about hatred but its opposite.

I am aghast that so many people are posting deeply offensive pictures of the Prophet. Y'all go ahead if that's your bag, but count me out.

And I encourage you all to make some Muslim friends -- those of you who clearly have never met a Muslim. Yeesh.

The Death of a Marine

*** sticky through Friday scroll down for newer posts ***

My father, the man I most loved and respected in the world, passed away last Friday -- one day after his 73rd birthday. He leaves behind 7 children, 19 grandchildren, & 5 great grandchildren.

My father served his country as a Marine. I always sensed a twinge of regret in his voice when he would explain to people that he was in the Corps just after Korea but too soon for Vietnam. His personal hero? Chesty Puller.

In addition to serving his country he also served his community in law enforcement for 35 years and in various positions in his church's lay hierarchy. He will be sorely missed.

Because of the unexpected expense of traveling halfway across the country with my wife and four kids, I'm asking friends, fans, and readers if they might be willing to make a small donation to The Jawa Report to help defray costs? Any donation, however small, will be greatly appreciated by myself and my family.

ATF seizes 30 toy guns, claim they can be converted into automatic weapons

Tacoma, WA:

A local business owner is flabbergasted after a shipment of 30 toy guns for his store was confiscated by ATF agents in Tacoma.

Brad Martin and his son, Ben, sell the Airsoft BB guns from their store in Cornelius where they’ve been in business for seven years.

The Martins said they buy their stock from Taiwan because the merchandise is less expensive. But the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives seized a shipment of 30 in October. That shipment is worth around $12,000 and the ATF is promising to destroy the entire shipment.

Special Agent Kelvin Crenshaw said the toys can be easily retro-fitted into dangerous weapons.

"With minimal work it could be converted to a machine gun," Crenshaw said...

Ben Martin disagrees that the toy guns could ever be considered dangerous.

"To say these are readily convertible to machine guns is absolutely preposterous,” he said. “The round wouldn't go into the firing chamber and even if the firing pin did strike the primer the gun would basically blow up in your face.”

ATF said it also seized the toys because they are missing the blaze orange tips required on all imported toy guns.

Man Detained After Trying To Open Plane"s Door


ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — A flight from Los Angeles to Florida was diverted to Albuquerque early Friday after a passenger sprayed the first-class cabin with a water bottle, tried to open a cabin door and threatened to blow up the aircraft.

Crew members and passengers on Delta Air Lines flight 2148 to Tampa, Fla., subdued Stanley Dwayne Sheffield, 46. He was taken into federal custody after the plane landed at 1:30 a.m. Friday.

"There wasn't time to think, just react. When somebody says they're going to blow up the plane, there's no fooling around," said Tampa Bay Rays broadcaster and former major league manager Kevin Kennedy, who was among a group of eight men that subdued Sheffield.

Kennedy was asleep when the ruckus awoke him, he told reporters before Tampa Bay's baseball game Friday night against Toronto.

"Then I hear in loud voices some guy talking about Satan and death. I can hear the flight attendant, a lady who was a little bit nervous. It woke me up and I was wide awake immediately. I see this guy and he was crossing himself and flipping water around, talking about Satan. As I looked around, other guys (in first class) were kind of waking up," he said.

FBI Supervisory Special Agent Darrin Jones said authorities do not believe the incident was related to terrorism.

Sheffield, whose hometown in Florida wasn't disclosed by investigators, was charged with interference with flight crew members and destruction of aircraft.

Sheffield made an initial appearance Friday before U.S. Magistrate Richard Puglisi, who scheduled preliminary and detention hearings for Monday. Assistant U.S. Attorney Chuck Barth said Sheffield remained jailed in Albuquerque.

Damn crazy shite.

FNC has a banner No link to story yet.


BAGHDAD -- A U.S. military judge has cleared a Navy SEAL of wrongdoing in the alleged beating of a prisoner suspected of masterminding the grisly 2004 killings of four American contractors in Iraq.

The military says the judge found insufficient evidence to convict Petty Officer 2nd Class Jonathan Keefe on charges of dereliction of duty.

South Park

As you probably know by now Comedy Central caved and censored Mohammed. Irshad Manji wants to do something about it. From her Facebook:

ALL: You may have heard about the Islamist death threat against the creators of “South Park”: http://nyti.ms/c8OkHJ. Pls take 30 seconds to sign the anti-death threat petition on my site. It’s a quick way to tell Islamist radicals that they won’t scare us into silence. (And pls identify your city too!): http://www.irshadmanji.com/petition

What good is it to sign this petition? Is someone going to deliver it to the Islamists? Do they really even CARE what any of us think? Speaking of care, will CAIR start a petition or will they defend and protect the Islamists if/when they do something? What we need to do is protest Comedy Central for running scared!

Irshad Manji: It's because I know people at Comedy Central that I can present this petition to them as a shaming mechanism - protesting CC won't make a whit of difference; media purveyors are used to it by now. What they need to see is that "ordinary" people have more guts than they do. That's the subtle shaming that will get them to think rather than dig in their heels. I welcome your signature. You may think it will do nothing, but doing nothing will most assuredly do nothing.

Irshad Manji.com/petition

Update: Younus Abdullah Muhammad:

A decision by Comedy Central to bleep out the words "Prophet Muhammad" on a follow-up episode of "South Park" that aired yesterday is not enough to remedy the situation, the author of an extremist Muslim website told WND today[Yesterday..ed].

Younus Abdullah Muhammad, author of RevolutionMuslim.com, charged "South Park" creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone continue to "mock" Muhammad even though the Islamic figure's name was censored from a follow-up show that aired last night.

Asked today if a network decision to bleep out Muhammad's name in a follow-up show satisfied his site, Abdullah Muhammad replied, "They continue to mock. It's a blatant mockery and it's typified by their response. We declared what is Islamically permissible."

Canada: Muslim Women Fears She Will Be Attacked For Working In A Hair Salon Frequented By Men

acid attack.jpg
Zainab Bibi, 17, adjusts her veil as she poses for a photograph in Islamabad, Pakistan, Wednesday, Dec. 24, 2008. Zainab was burned on her face with acid thrown by a boy whom she rejected for marriage five years ago. She has undergone plastic surgery several times to try to recover from her scars.

Via Creeping Sharia

A Muslim woman fighting to stay in Canada fears being disfigured with acid for allegedly “bringing shame” to her ex-husband’s family in Pakistan by leaving him and travelling here to work in a hair salon frequented by men.

Roohi Tabassum, 45, of Brampton, said corrosive acid is thrown in the faces of women in Pakistan and other Islamic countries to disfigure them because they have allegedly “shamed” their families.

Tabassum said there have been two incidents the past month in Pakistan where women’s faces were burned with acid by assailants who fled.

“I don’t leave the house or go anywhere because I am scared,” she said. “Sometimes the women are also disabled, burned or tortured.”

Tabassum claims family members in Pakistan are still receiving threats from ex-husband, Faisal Javed, who has threatened to kill her.

“He (ex-husband) is determined to have me killed or crippled,” she said. “I am very concerned for myself.”

Climate Scientist Sues For Libel

Over poisonous articles.


ONE OF the world's leading climate scientists has brought a libel lawsuit against a Canadian newspaper for publishing articles he says ''poison'' the debate on global warming.

In a case with potentially huge consequences for online publishers, lawyers acting for Andrew Weaver, a climate modeller at the University of Victoria, Canada, have demanded the National Post remove the articles not only from its own websites, but also from the numerous blogs and sites where they were reposted.

Dr Weaver says the articles, published at the height of several recent controversies over the reliability of climate science in recent months, contain ''grossly irresponsible falsehoods''. He said he filed the suit after the newspaper refused to retract the articles.

Dr Weaver said: ''If I sit back and do nothing to clear my name, these libels will stay on the internet forever.''

The four articles, published from December to February, claimed that Dr Weaver cherrypicked data to support his climate research, and that he tried to blame the ''evil fossil fuel'' industry for break-ins at his office in 2008 to divert attention from reported mistakes in the 2007 report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, on which he was the lead author.

Poor baby, got his feelings hurt.

South Korean Ship Sunk By NK Human Torpedoes?



The attack on the 1,220-ton Cheonan, which sank on March 26 with the loss of 46 of its 104 crew, was carried out in retaliation for a skirmish between warships of the two nations' navies in November of last year, South Korea claims.

The South Korean government has refused to comment officially on the reports but Defence Minister Kim Tae Young told a parliamentary session that the military believed that the sinking was a deliberate act by North Korea.

Officials in military intelligence say they warned the government earlier this year that North Korea was preparing a suicide-squad submarine attack on a South Korean ship.

"Military intelligence made the report to the Blue House [the presidential office] and to the Defence Ministry immediately after the sinking of the Cheonan that it was clearly the work of North Korea's military," a military source said.

Maybe so..

Flying Over The Atlantic & Finding Out A Passenger Is On The No Fly List



SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico - U.S. federal agents detained a passenger on a New York-bound jet from West Africa, telling passengers the man was on a 'no-fly' list and ineligible for international travel for undisclosed security reasons.

Customs and Border Protection agents detained the man while the Delta Air Lines jet stopped to refuel in San Juan, Puerto Rico after an overnight trip from Dakar, Senegal. The flight originated in Nigeria, the native country of a man accused of boarding a Detroit-bound airplane from Amsterdam in December with a bomb hidden in his underwear.

It was unclear if the man detained in Puerto Rico boarded the plane in Nigeria or Senegal, and his name and nationality were not disclosed[...]

But passengers told The Associated Press that the captain announced over the intercom that a passenger had been identified as being on a no-fly list while the jet was over the Atlantic. He made the announcement shortly after a U.S. agent escorted the man in a T-shirt and jeans off the plane.

No crispy crotch for him.

Things Are Ruff All Over

It's been a busy month for dog lovers. A 32-year-old Oregon woman, Rachel Petterson, was arrested for the videotaped sexual abuse of two dogs. Petterson's husband is allegedly a child and animal pornographer.

Not to be outdone, Stephen Clarke, a British tourist in Whatcom County, Washington, was arrested for engaging in sex with three dogs at an alleged animal sex club adjacent to the U.S.-Canada border.

And in a case of the welfare-state achieving a new low, going to the dogs so to speak, a government-funded and operated bar has opened for unemployed alcoholics in Germany. Instead of having inebriated sloths strewn around parks, schoolyards and city streets, the nanny-state planners have consolidated the problems into one central drinking place. Therefore, if you're looking for a taxpayer-funded drunken party at 10 AM any day, go to the Sofa Bar in Kiel on the northern coast. Reportedly, other cities have expressed interest in the welfare-bar-for-drunks concept so there may be more establishments soon.

Other People Have It Worse

From left, Darien Crank, Chelsea Jarvis and Cornelius Madison head to class at Fort Campbell High School on Fort Campbell, Ky., April 15, 2010. DoD photo by Elaine Wilson

God Bless the families of the finest and bravest.

FORT CAMPBELL, Ky., April 22, 2010 – With a cocky grin and larger-than-life presence, Cornelius Madison commands attention when he walks down the high school hall here, always with a hint of a swagger.

Bumping fists and cracking jokes, Cornelius seems impervious to stress or worry. It’s only when discussing his deployed mother in an interview does he reveal a small chink in his otherwise impenetrable bravado.

“As long I know she’s alive, then, I’m good. But if I ever get that call ….” His words drift off and he looks away, unwilling to share his potential pain.

His mother, Army Staff Sgt. Asia Lowe, and stepfather, Army Sgt. 1st Class Shawn Lowe, deployed to Afghanistan for a year about a month ago, their second deployment in three years. Cornelius and his two younger siblings are staying with a family friend.

At 16, Cornelius has assumed the role of man of the house in a home that isn’t even his own.

“It’s not easy, but I was brought up to keep going, no matter what,” he said. “I have to do it for my Mom. I’m really proud of her.”

Cornelius is one of the nearly 2 million American military children and youth growing up in a decade marked by war. He’s also one of the some 900,000 military children whose parents have deployed multiple times. These children endure long separations from a parent who may be in harm’s way, frequent moves, and multiple new schools. They mark major milestones, including graduations, prom nights and sports events, either alone or without one or both of their parents.

The challenges and stressors they endure would knock most well-functioning adults to their knees, said Nancy Beale, school psychologist for the Fort Campbell High School here.

“Yet these kids get up and come to school and maintain their grades and do the best they can,” she said. “It blows me out of the water. And it gives me faith in that concept we call resiliency.”

The ongoing Afghanistan and Iraq wars have taken their toll on the post here. About two-thirds of the active-duty soldiers assigned to Fort Campbell are slated to deploy by fall, noted Bob Jenkins, a post spokesman. That’s a big hit to a post with a total soldier population of roughly 30,000.

While some of his peers take the deployments harder, Cornelius takes the separations and moves – this is his fifth so far -- in stride, shrugging them off as an inevitable part of military life. “Other people have it worse,” he said.

Cornelius’ laid-back attitude may seem surprising to some, but actually is the new norm for adolescents growing up in the military, Beale noted.

Right on Cornelius!

Insider: Top Ohio homeland security officials falsify credentials, obtained fake diploma mill degrees***Updated***Updated 2x

***Sticky, Scroll down for newer posts***

Our correspondent inside the Ohio Department of Homeland Security brings even more troubling news. Last Friday they informed us about the department's destruction of thousands of taxpayer-funded brochures because the author, multicultural affairs director Omar Alomari, had promoted a whole laundry list of Islamic groups identified by the DOJ and FBI as groups that had supported terrorism. Alomari described these terror-tied groups in the brochure as "organizations we [Ohio homeland security] are working with".

Then on Monday we were informed that just last week, Ohio homeland security director William Vedra defended his organization's continued association with the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), despite a nationwide ban by the DOJ and FBI on any formal association with the group. And yesterday our correspondent had provided us information that Vedra's right-hand man Alomari had been fired from a local college for violating their sexual harassment policy by sleeping with infidel coeds taking his classes. This would be of no one's concern except Mrs. Alomari, except Vedra has invoked Alomari's academic credentials to defend Alomari (and himself) from their critics.

Now comes our inside correspondent with potentially earth-shattering details:

Despite the information I've already provided it is difficult to understate how absolutely corrupt and incompetent our department really is. Most of our leadership are [Gov.] Strickland flunkies and flacks who only have their high-paying jobs because of their political connections. This is nothing new in state government, but the ramifications of such corruption and ineptitude in the agency responsible for our state's homeland security are dire.

For instance, many of our top leaders have inflated their resumes and some have falsified their credentials. I've seen the personnel files for our department, and we have a number of people who have obtained fake degrees from diploma mills. One example I know of first hand is Olen Martin, task force coordinator of our Northern Border Initiative. He not only has one fake degree; in fact, he has two that he cited to get employment here. He is hardly alone in our office. It is truly an insult to those of us who spent years in college and graduate studies that we sometimes work for and are paid less than these frauds.

The leadership problems in our department start from the top down. Bill Vedra never served a day on duty in law enforcement and is a retired firefighter. That is certainly a noble profession, but it hardly qualifies him to be our state's homeland security director. The only reason he is here is because of his political connections to Strickland.

The situation in our state is extremely dangerous, much more than our leadership is willing to publicly admit - even to our elected officials. The flunkies and flacks who run this department are going to get people in our state killed. And when that happens, it will be a very short line from those engaged in terrorist acts and those who encouraged it. Those encouraging it include groups that we continue to work with despite their known terrorist ties, usually escorted into our offices by Omar Alomari. And the politically-connected people in our office with no experience, padded resumes and fake degrees who will have allowed this situation to occur will be the ones promoted when there are dead citizens in our streets.

Checking the LinkedIn profile for Olen Martin (don't worry Mr. Martin, we've got screenshots and printed copies to post once you delete the information; Google cache of the page here), who heads up the Northern Border Initiative, finds that he lists both a bachelors and masters degrees from "Suffield University". But a fifteen second check on the internet finds that "Suffield University" is an illegal diploma mill. Here's what their wikipedia page says:

Suffield University (sometimes referred to as Suffield College and University) is an unaccredited internet school specializing in what it calls Life Experience Degrees, issued upon payment, with life experience assessment based on the word of the applicant. Suffield is not accredited by any accreditation body recognized by its [sic] country. According to the US Department of Education, unaccredited degrees and credits might not be acceptable to employers or other institutions, and use of degree titles may be restricted or illegal in some jurisdictions...

In 2004 the Hartford Courant reported that state authorities in Connecticut had ordered Suffield to cease operations. The states of Oregon, Texas, and Maine list Suffield University as "operating illegally in Connecticut." According to its website, Suffield University now operates in Twin Falls, Idaho, but does not provide a mailing address.

Is falsifying applications for government employment such as what Olen Martin has done with his two fake degrees illegal in the state of Ohio? You would have to ask a legal expert in Ohio about that, but it appears to be the case. A few years ago the police chief in Fostoria, Ohio was indicted on charges of falsification and tampering with records. During the trial it came out the the department's police dog also had a degree from the same educational institution as the police chief. No doubt the next Ohio homeland security director (depending on who had the better political connections -- the police chief or the police dog)!

Having such problems of falsifying resumes in a local police department is certainly one thing; to have top homeland security officials engaging in the same behavior is clearly another. Where are the Ohio state legislators and attorney general? And where the hell are the Ohio media?

***UPDATE: Well, it didn't take long for Olen Martin, coordinator of the Ohio homeland security Northern Border Initiative, to remove his LinkedIn profile, so here's a screenshot showing his bogus "Suffield University" education. Google cache of the page is here. Thanks to Stable Hand for the screen captures!

Olen Martin - Suffield.jpg

Here he shows his education as a BA (should be BS) and MS degrees from Suffield:

Olen Martin - Suffield2.jpg

UPDATE #2: Olen Martin has now reposted his LinkedIn profile sans the "Suffield University" information. No doubt he is doing this on his state government computer and over the state government networks. It is always the cover-up that gets you in the end, Olen!

Court-Martial of Navy SEAL Opens In Iraq (UPDATED)

Yahoo News

BAGHDAD – A U.S. sailor testified Wednesday he saw a Navy SEAL punch an Iraqi prisoner suspected of masterminding the killings in 2004 of four U.S. private security contractors, as the court-martial of another member of the elite unit allegedly involved in the incident opened at a military base outside Baghdad.

Petty Officer 1st Class Julio Huertas, wearing his blue Navy uniform, appeared in a military courtroom at the Victory Base Camp on Baghdad's western outskirts to answer charges of dereliction of duty and impeding an official investigation. He has pleaded not guilty.

Huertas, 28, of Blue Island, Illinois, is the first of three Navy SEALs to go on trial in connection with the alleged assault of the Iraqi prisoner, Ahmed Hashim Abed. He is accused of failing to safeguard the prisoner and attempting to influence the testimony of another service member.

The SEALs' case has gained widespread sympathy in the United States as well as support from at least 20 lawmakers in Congress who have urged U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates to drop the charges.[...]

Navy Petty Officer 3rd Class Kevin Demartino, who is not a SEAL and was assigned to process and transport Abed after his capture, testified he saw Petty Officer 2nd Class Matthew McCabe punch the prisoner, and blood come from the prisoner's mouth

No comment, this is a PG13 site. Redacting doesn't cut it for how I feel.

Update: Huertas found not guilty! Awesome news.

Petty Officer 1st Class Julio Huertas, 28, of Blue Island, Illinois, was found not guilty by a six-man jury of charges of dereliction of duty and attempting to influence the testimony of another service member.

The jury spent two hours deliberating the verdict[...]

In her closing arguments, Huertas' civilian attorney Monica Lombardi pointed to inconsistencies between DeMartino's testimony and nearly every other Navy witness. She also reminded the jury of the terrorism charges against Abed, who is in Iraqi custody and has not yet been tried, saying he could not be trusted and may have inflicted wounds on himself as a way of recasting blame on American troops.

In Defense of South Park Creators (updated: PWNED)

Update by Howie 04/22/10. Zack's blog has been PWNED!



You are my bitch! Bitch!


Thanks to Wordpress everyone who helped take this blog down.

Original post below the fold

Hat Tip: Death Star.


You may have heard about the thinly veiled threat against the creators of South Park on the Revolution Muslim website. What you may not know is the contributor who wrote that, Zack Chesser aka Abu Talhah al-Amrike also has another terror supporting blog called the Mujahid blog.

Zack is so proud of his work he has also posted the threats on this blog as well.

The blog is hosted by Wordpress who is hosted in turn by Peer1. We believe that these threats taken in context violate the terms of service of both providers. Zack claims he is just explaining what he thinks is likely to happen to Trey Parker and Matt Stone. But then he goes on to post personal information that makes it all the more likely that someone might try and kill them. In other words he won't kill them, but he's going to try and help out any Radical Muslim who might read his site and decide to "defend the prophet" by the sword.

Below you will find all the information needed on both providers' TOS to write complaints requesting that this blog be removed. Remember the more complaints we write the more likely the blog will be suspended. Please be polite and direct. Point out specific violations of TOS. I recommend we each an email to each provider noting violations of each TOS and CC the other provider in each.

The first links we need in each report are these(anonymoused).



The blog is hosted by Wordpress.com who's Terms of Service is here.

the Content is not pornographic, libelous or defamatory (more info on what that means), does not contain threats or incite violence towards individuals or entities, and does not violate the privacy or publicity rights of any third party;
Obviously we feel these posts incite violence.

Their abuse policy is here.

We only suspend blogs or blog posts for the following types of abuse:

* Personal threats
* Calls to violence
* Impersonation of a private person

We feel these posts violate terms 1 and 2.

To send your complaint use this email address abuse-report@wordpress.com.

Wordpress.com is hosted by Peer1, their terms of service is here.

Obviously these posts also violate Peer1's TOS as well.

Their email address for complaints is : abuse@peer1.net.

Obviously Zack Chesser has laid out the Islamic sermon of Anwar al-Alwaki and this image of Theo Van-Gogh in the hopes that one of his more radical readers will "implement the judgment of Allah" on them for depicting and making fun of Muhammad.


Just like Theo.... Seriously this guy has a very radical readership, the threat is quite real despite Zack and Younnis' "disclaimers". Please participate, the more complaints the more effective we will be.

Update: Zack took down his post. Puss.

Conservative Writer Punished due to Ideology at Associated Content

The author below has requested a platform to post his story, so we've made him a guest blogger for a day.

Hi Everyone,

My name is Marc Schenker, and I’m a freelance writer. Politically, I’m a committed conservative. First off, thanks to Howie for graciously allowing me a post on this blog to expose and document the vicious, anti-conservative bias and censorship that one of the most heavily trafficked, “news” websites has subjected me to.

I write for Associated Content, a popular news site that gets more unique visitors per month than the Washington Post or the Huffington Post, according to web analytics company Compete.com. I’m a freelance political writer there and am paid per article I publish through an ad revenue-sharing business model. Ostensibly, Associated Content claims to be a non-partisan website, encouraging its contributors to publish articles at will on any topic without prohibitions towards political ideology…unless, as it turned out in my case, YOU ARE CONSERVATIVE.

The actor Jon Voight recently appeared on Fox News’ Huckabee program on April 10, where he read a letter to the American people criticizing Barack Obama. Among many choice criticisms, Voight correctly said Obama was raping America due to his policies. I, being an observant political freelance writer, noticed how absolutely no one in the media covered this electrifying Voight speech, so I decided to write a report on Voight’s Obama criticism and, since I’m conservative, gave it favorable coverage in my analysis. That’s when my publisher, Associated Content, immediately started punishing and retaliating against me for being conservative and expressing a conservative viewpoint in my Voight report.

Associated Content heavily edited my Voight article by censoring exact descriptions of his criticism against Obama as well as the embedded video of his speech that I included; they, without explanation, deleted previous articles that I had written where I criticized Obama and Al Gore; they cheated me, to boot, by actually denying me the payments I had earned for said articles; they threatened to ban me outright from their site when I dared to complain about their unjust anti-conservative bias; they revoked my ability to publish without editorial control; and they subjected all my future articles to first pass through their editorial panel before publishing, a total turnaround from their policy before I authored my Voight article!

In conclusion, it’s beyond undeniable that Associated Content is punishing me, a conservative freelance writer, for reporting on Jon Voight’s criticism of Obama. The issue here is not that Associated Content can do this (they likely can since they’re not a government website), but I think that they are defrauding everybody by not advertising themselves as they should, which is a liberal website that crushingly censors criticism of Obama and Democrats! They claim that they’re simply an open-content publishing “news” site, but they aren’t.

To further prove my point, Associated Content shamelessly allows cheap shot, character assassination articles on their site which tear into conservatives like Glenn Beck. In example, AC contributor Timothy Sexton calls Glenn Beck a 13-year-old special needs kid, yet he wasn’t punished by Associated Content like I was; his Beck-defamation article was even featured on their political section!

What I’m asking is that all conservatives and those who value honesty in advertising and freedom of speech boycott Associated Content absolutely. If you don’t go on Associated Content, you still may find yourself there if you search on the internet for news, as they appear quite frequently at the top of search results, so be cautious. For what I think is their fraud, censorship and anti-conservative bias, Associated Content ought to lose business and thus income as a consequence.

Sincerely, Marc Schenker.

Iraq: Third alQaeda Leader Killed

Three's the charm so they say or four or five, etc.

Abu Omar al-Baghdadi and Abu Ayyub al-Masri were killed in a joint operation Sunday in what Vice President Joe Biden called a "potentially devastating blow" to al-Qaeda in Iraq.

The joint forces quickly followed that up with a morning raid the following day in which insurgent leader Ahmed al-Obeidi was killed in the northern province of Ninevah,

Maj Gen Qassim al-Moussawi, an Iraqi military spokesman, said Obeidi was in charge of al-Qaida in Iraq's operations in the provinces of Kirkuk, Salahuddin and Ninevah.

Must suck to be sploded and find out there is no such thing as 72 virgins.

Recent circumstances indicate that Youtube is moving towards deleting Vlad’s channel, possibly because of accusations that he promotes “hate speech”.

For my money, memes on the Internet don’t get any better than the Hitler one. You know, the one in which you take some current event (the more mundane, the better) and shove it into the scene from the German film Downfall in which Hitler is told in his bunker that he cannot win the war.

....Earlier today, someone attempted to upload a new version surrounding the massive iPhone 4G (or iPhone HD, whatever) news. Unfortunately, as you can see on YouTube, that video has already been removed with the message, “This video contains content from Constantin Film, who has blocked it on copyright grounds.“

Pearson Airport bust finds battery,shrapnel

Did we just dodge a bullet?


A man was arrested at Toronto's Pearson airport Tuesday morning trying to carry "suspicious materials" through security, CBC News has learned.

The man intended to board a U.S.-bound flight just before 9 a.m. at Pearson's Terminal One when security staff noticed something suspicious and detained him.

A search revealed the man was carrying batteries in one shoe and shrapnel in another. Peel Regional Police have the man in custody at their airport division. He is being interviewed, but has not been charged.

It's not clear whether the man was acting alone or in co-ordination with others.

Did Bill Clinton Torture Children and Babies?

Apparently, the answer is yes.

Over at The Volokh Conspiracy author Kenneth Anderson brings into question Clinton administration actions during the siege of the Branch Davidian nutbags at Waco in light of Clinton's recent vendetta against the First Amendment as it applies to conservative groups:

But the FBI knew beforehand that adults in the compound had gas masks; the gas therefore would not put pressure on them. On whom, then? If the FBI knew that the adults had gas masks, but went ahead with the gas attack anyway, it is plain that this “pressure” was brought directly against the children because, as the FBI knew, they could not fit into adult– size gas masks. “Maternal feelings”, the FBI hoped, would be unleashed in the mothers by watching their children choking, gasping and blistering from the gas.

Staff Sgt. Heath Calhoun Story


WASHINGTON, April 20, 2010 – Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates today told the members of the U.S. Paralympic team that they are inspirations to all members of the armed forces.

Gates hosted the team that competed at the Vancouver, British Columbia, winter games at his Pentagon office.

The Paralympic movement began after World War II, when returning GIs -- many wounded in combat -- looked for ways to continue competing. “It’s important in healing injured servicemembers,” said Charlie Huebner, secretary general of the U.S. Paralympic Committee.

“My transition from a disabled veteran to a disabled athlete was aided by the Defense Department,” said Heath Calhoun, a squad leader with the 101st Airborne Division who lost both legs after his vehicle was hit by a rocket-propelled grenade in Iraq. “For me, it is a personal thing. It’s the power of sport in my life and knowing how it’s helped me rehabilitate, and I just want to say, ‘Thank you very much.’”

The team left the Pentagon to visit with servicemembers undergoing treatment at Walter Reed Army Medical Center here and the National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, Md.

I was curious about Heath Calhoun, searched and found his website. Such a amazing story. Thank you for your service and God Bless you Staff Sgt Calhoun.

Ohio homeland security multicultural affairs director Omar Alomari was fired by college for sleeping with student, but his boss touts his sterling character and outstanding reputation to attack his critics

***Sticky until noon. Scroll below for more updates.***

alomari.jpgIn recent days we've been providing an overview of the glaring incompetence and outright corruption within the Ohio Department of Homeland Security, led by its director William Vedra. Thanks to our correspondent inside the department, Jawa readers have been treated to a shocking inside view of the agency. Yesterday we noted the recent statements made last week by William Vedra before a group of local law enforcement officials heard and related to our correspondent by a department employee who was present in support of his agency's ongoing partnership with the the terrorist front group, the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR). As we demonstrated with photographs, not only has Vedra had his picture taken with CAIR officials at department events, he also had the top CAIR official in the state of Ohio, Asma Mobin-Uddin, speak at their "interfaith forum" last August, thumbing his nose at a nationwide ban by the FBI and DOJ of formal contacts with CAIR.

The director's "right-hand man" (a pun, see below) in this ongoing outreach to CAIR is the department's multicultural affairs director Omar Alomari. Last month we noted that Alomari had authored several publications for the homeland security department that Zuhdi Jasser, president of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy, likened as "classic Islamist propaganda". Of particular note was a pamphlet authored by Alomari entitled "Agents of Radicalization", which our correspondent informed us the department had to destroy thousands of copies of (at taxpayer expense) when informed by local counterterrorism officials it listed several Islamic organizations who have been identified by the FBI and DOJ as terrorist front groups (including CAIR) that Alomari described as "organizations we [Ohio homeland security] are working with".

Now we have received new information about Alomari and his background. While Omar Alomari and his boss William Vedra like to flaunt his academic teaching credentials, there is one curious hole in his resume: his previous teaching position at Columbus State Community College. This is no mere accident.

In fact, what CSCC officials discovered during Omar Alomari's tenure with their institution is that he liked to have sex with pretty blond-haired, blue-eyed infidel coeds. On its face this would only be of concern to Mrs. Alomari, the relevance for our purposes is that the college also discovered that Alomari was sleeping with his female students while they were enrolled in his classes in violation of the school's sexual harassment policy. We've been provided by our inside correspondent a copy of the CSCC investigation report that found he was doing exactly that.

The school didn't appreciate Omar Alomari's peculiar approach to "multicultural affairs", because upon confirmation of those facts, Alomari was fired. In good Islamist fashion, he immediately claimed that he was being discriminated against for his ethnic and religious background. Take one wild guess who his case was supported by? The Ohio Civil Rights Commission eventually disagreed, though they didn't take into account his right to take "women whom your right hand posses" (4:24), proving that they too are a bunch of Islamophobes.

From those internal CSCC and court documents we were provided it seems that Alomari's special approach to "multicultural relations" would be to target married coeds in his Middle East and Arabic classes, promising his victim "special help" with projects. After wooing them for a while, he would promise to leave his wife and marry them if they would divorce their husbands, treating them to weekend trips to Niagara Falls and continued "special help" with their classes he was teaching. In the case that prompted his firing from CSCC, the scandal cost the victim her own marriage.

Again, while this would be of no concern for us whatsoever if it were a strictly private matter, William Vedra has recently cited Omar Alomari's academic career as something to silence Alomari's (and also his) critics. Now we see that in doing so Vedra is being flatly disingenuous. When Vedra speaks of the sterling character and outstanding reputation of "his friend" Omar Alomari, it is clear his standards are pretty low. No doubt members of the Ohio Muslim community would be rightly outraged to discover that the only person considered for the multicultural affairs position with the Ohio Department of Homeland Security is the scandal-ridden and CAIR-selected Omar Alomari.

NY Businessman Sentenced In Terror Financing Case

Abdul Tawala Ibn Ali Alishtari was sentenced to 10yrs in pound in arse prison. I wonder, do they sell hemorrhoid ointment in prison?

A New York businessman who pleaded guilty to trying to funnel money to a terrorist training camp in Afghanistan has been sentenced to just over 10 years in prison.
Wiki article about Alishtari, formerly known as Michael Mixon :
Abdul Tawala Ibn Ali Alishtari, also known as Michael Mixon, is a bank underwriter and resident of Ardsley, New York, charged in Manhattan federal court with terrorism financing, material support of terrorism, and international money laundering, as well as additional charges of conspiracy and wire fraud.[1]
What really sucks, he was a donor to National Republican Congressional Committee. He also funded the Global Peace Film Festival
As I reflect in my journal upon the previous parts, I disclose to the Charitable Endowment Council, or CEC, a a third disclosure of how I funded with $400,000 USD the Global Peace Filme Festival, Inc. Charity as one of my Foundation's Charities. It sets the standard of professionalism for all other charities at www.peacefilmfest.org.

I, Mr. Abdul Taw’ala Ibn Ali Alishtari would like to discuss how IDPixie Global will use the DC Foundation Charities to open new markets legally and globally by offering our system to them through the pearl network for collection and other legal distribution.

One of the many Charities is the Global Peace Film Festival, Inc., GPFF. The GPFF is presently doing business in the USA, Japan, Israel and Jordan. met with the Koreans 12/14 and the Chinese and Cyprians have approached the GPFF for a peace festival too.

If anyone doesn’t support peace and domestic tranquility as I do, see it as an Olympic level, public relations branding that each nation is led to do since every other nation is going to be doing it, save possibly the UK due to its at war status. However, the UK can join it and allow a peace festival if a prominent local sponsors it focusing on 2007 being an aniversary for the end of UK offical slavery due to the UK Manumission, or stop slavery movement.

Well I hope he enjoys sharing his peace in prison.

Robert Levinson Dead?

An extremely odd hostage situation just got a tad bit odder.

Hassan Abdulraham, an American-born Muslim convert who is wanted for murder in the United States, says he met with Robert Levinson on March 8, 2007, at the Maryam Hotel on Kish Island, a Persian Gulf island that is part of Iran. Levinson, who was working for a private security company, had taken a flight to Kish Island from Dubai as part of an investigation into the lucrative cigarette smuggling trade.

Can we really be expected to believe an American born Muslim convert wanted for murder here in the U.S.?

We continue to pray for the safe return of Robert Levinson.

Example: How To Lose More Credibility

With crap like this.

The eruption of the Eyjafjallajokull volcano is unlikely to have any significant impact on climate but has caused a small fall in carbon emissions, experts say.

How could this be possible, you ask?

A larger effect on the atmosphere, though still small in global terms, comes from the mass-grounding of European flights over the past few days.

Let me get this straight. Per the World Meteorological Organization in Geneva, the volcano eruption could cause "very insignificant" cooling. But what is really getting the climate change crowd moist is that planes aren't flying, which means planes aren't emitting carbon. Technically, the volcanic eruption is good. Awesome! I'll call Europe and tell them things are good. Real good.

This could be extrapolated further into the underlying goal of the environmental groups. The earth is healthier when economic pursuit is at a stand still.

Insider: Ohio homeland security director likens CAIR to gangbangers, drug dealers, mafia rats, criminal informants and other "bad guys" - to justify continuing to work with terror front group!!!

***Sticky until noon. Scroll down for additional updates***

Strange goings-on in the state of Ohio. Last Friday we published correspondence from an official inside the Ohio Department of Public Safety, which oversees Ohio homeland security, informing us that the department had to destroy thousands of copies of homeland security brochures authored by multicultural affairs director Omar Alomari. Our correspondent noted that the copies of the brochure (printed at taxpayer expense), "Agents of Radicalization", had to be destroyed because Alomari promoted several Muslim groups on the back of the publication identified by the DOJ and FBI as supporters of terrorism as "organizations we [Ohio homeland security] are working with".

Just last month Assistant Attorney General Ronald Weich sent a letter to several members of Congress explaining why the terror-tied group was named unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terrorism finance trial in American history and why the DOJ and FBI has severed relations with CAIR.

But Ohio homeland security director William Vedra has not apparently got the DOJ and FBI's memos on CAIR. Our correspondent informs us that just last week, Vedra appeared before a group of Ohio law enforcement officials explaining why his organization continues to do business with CAIR in defiance of the federal ban on open association with the terrorist front group, which DOJ prosecutors said in February 2008 had "conspired with other affiliates of the Muslim Brotherhood to support terrorists".

Now to our correspondent inside the Ohio department of homeland security:

The office is buzzing about comments our director Bill Vedra made at a law enforcement meeting this week in defense of our ongoing association with the Council on American-Islamic Relations. There are pictures circulating of Vedra getting cozy with CAIR officials at an interfaith forum organized by Alomari last August, even though we were already aware that the FBI had cut ties with them.

According to one of my co-workers who was in the room, Vedra explained that we continue to work with CAIR just like we meet with gangbangers, drug dealers, mafia underlings, criminal informants and other "bad guys" to gather information. He explained away him getting his picture taken with Alomari and the executive director of the local CAIR office by saying that it was an open forum and he couldn't stop anyone from attending.

I doubt CAIR is going to appreciate likened to criminals, but it is staggering that he had to scrape the bottom of the social strata to defend their association with CAIR. Through another source we were able to procure for Jawa readers a copy of the photograph in question, which indeed shows Ohio Homeland Security director William Vedra with Omar Alomari and Babak Darvish, the CAIR-Columbus executive director (who Jawa readers will remember organized the persecution of Muslim apostate Rifqa Bary).

CAIR-OH ODHS Interfaith Forum5.jpg

Ah, but our correspondent still has yet to reach the punch line:

Vedra started to squirm when someone asked him if he couldn't prevent a top CAIR official from attending the event, why was Darvish's boss, CAIR-OH president Asma Mobin-Uddin, asked by Alomari to speak at the event. I'm told that with a deer-in-the-headlights look, Vedra mumbled something about not inviting Mobin-Uddin to speak as a CAIR official.

Indeed, we also have procured a copy of CAIR-OH president Asma Mobin-Uddin speaking at the Ohio homeland security interfaith event:

CAIR-OH ODHS Interfaith Forum6.jpg

So William Vedra gets caught in a lie with his initial explanation that he couldn't prevent CAIR officials from attending a public event, conveniently forgetting that the top CAIR official in the state was on the homeland security's agenda as a featured speaker that day. Vedra must also be Ohio Secretary of State if he can magically wave his hands and deem a CAIR corporate officer a non-CAIR official for the day so they can speak at his interfaith forum. Do you think that William Vedra has gangbangers, drug dealers and mafia rats speaking at his state-sponsored forums on gang violence, drug prevention and organized crime????

It is nothing short of institutional rot, incompetence and outright corruption that allows a state homeland security department to publish "classic Islamist propaganda" as Zuhdi Jasser of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy described the Ohio homeland security publications authored by Omar Alomari. And it is becoming clear that the fish is rotting from the head down in Ohio beginning the homeland security director William Vedra, who can justify as the top homeland security official in Ohio continuing to work with terrorist front groups like CAIR. Then again, he has allowed CAIR's own mole inside their organization, Omar Alomari, to operate with impunity.

Our thanks to our correspondent inside the department who is risking not just job, but also career, to let the public know the truth about this situation. We'll bring you more if and when we get it.

Obama's Ministry of Truth

Cass Sunstein, Barack Obama's 'Regulatory Czar', has a history of advocacy. Unfortunately, it's for the kind of Statism that would make Mussolini cringe. Sunstein, among other egregious activities, supports the establishment of government propaganda ministries.
Writing on January 15, 2010, Glenn Greenwald at Salon noted Barack Obama’s new head of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Cass Sunstein, had championed creating fake websites and using outside 501(c)(3) interest groups to act as alleged independent champions of government policy and to “cognitively infiltrate” opposition websites, etc...

Taliban Ready For Peace Talks?

The Sunday Times:

...two of the movement’s senior Islamic scholars have relayed a message from the Quetta shura, the Taliban’s ruling council, that Mullah Omar no longer aims to rule Afghanistan. They said he was prepared to engage in “sincere and honest” talks.

A senior US military source said the remarks reflected a growing belief that a “breakthrough” was possible. “There is evidence from many intelligence sources [that] the Taliban are ready for some kind of peace process,” the source said.

...Taliban leaders told this newspaper that their military campaign had only three objectives: the return of sharia (Islamic law), the expulsion of foreigners and the restoration of security.

Interesting tidbits about the Taliban's perceptions about the current situation and a possible Kandahar offensive by NATO.

...Taliban believe they are winning and are able to negotiate from a position of strength. Asked about a forthcoming Nato offensive in the Kandahar region, a local Taliban commander who sat alongside the two scholars boasted: “We’re ready for this. We’re going to break the Americans’ teeth.”

The Taliban leaders said that lessons had been learnt from Nato’s last big offensive in the Marjah area of Helmand province earlier this year. When Nato gave advance notice of the operation, the Taliban were lured into sending too many fighters to the area, some of whom died.

The leaders said that in Kandahar a plan to counter Nato had already been prepared.

“There will be no surprise there,” said Abdul Rashid. “We have our people inside all positions in the city, in the government and the security forces.”

He added: "While China's image is stuck in neutral, America has motored past it in the global soft-power competition."

CAIR apologist pastor's "outreach" to pedophile

Adam Savit at Big Government has the details: The Pastor, the Pedophile and CAIR

On April 5 the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) issued a press release urging GOP leaders to “insist” that Congresswoman Sue Myrick (R-NC) withdraw support from the non-profit grassroots advocacy organization ACT! for America. CAIR referred to ACT! for America, one of the largest national security (and pro-American and pro-Israel) citizens organizations in the United States, as an “anti-Islam hate group.” ...

On April 13 CAIR-Tampa echoed the CAIR national office message with this action alert and directed readers to a petition calling for 5,000 signatures condemning the GOP and Myrick for associating with ACT! for America. CAIR could only find a single spokesperson to prop up their attack on ACT! For America, a certain Reverend Wilifred Allen-Faiella of St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church in Coconut Grove, FL. The CAIR action alert quotes from her letter which echoes, word for word, CAIR’s talking points from their smear campaign:

“As a minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ who preached love for all I am appalled that a Congresswoman can support a hate-filled group such as “Act for America”. Their statements about Muslims constitute hate speech and no responsible leader of this country founded on the principles that all are created equal should associate herself with such an anti-American group.”

Big mistake in spokepersons, CAIR.

The question is open as to whether CAIR bothered to investigate Allen-Faiella’s questionable background before they chose her to be their sole spokeperson, since she is best known for her starring role in a well-publicized 2004 Miami scandal when she allowed a convicted pedophile to volunteer at the thrift shop next to her church’s K-6 elementary school.

Oh, there's more. But it is a testament to the character and judgment of those dwindling few who still continue to defend Hamas front-group CAIR.

Obi One Reaching Out Quiety To Muslims Of America

What could go wrong?

Muslim and Arab-American advocates have participated in policy discussions and received briefings from top White House aides and other officials on health care legislation, foreign policy, the economy, immigration and national security. They have met privately with a senior White House adviser, Valerie Jarrett, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. to discuss civil liberties concerns and counterterrorism strategy.

The impact of this continuing dialogue is difficult to measure, but White House officials cited several recent government actions that were influenced, in part, by the discussions. The meeting with Ms. Napolitano was among many factors that contributed to the government’s decision this month to end a policy subjecting passengers from 14 countries, most of them Muslim, to additional scrutiny at airports, the officials said.

That emergency directive, enacted after a failed Dec. 25 bombing plot, has been replaced with a new set of intelligence-based protocols that law enforcement officials consider more effective.

Also this month, Tariq Ramadan, a prominent Muslim academic[And terrorist supporter..ed], visited the United States for the first time in six years after Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton reversed a decision by the Bush administration, which had barred Mr. Ramadan from entering the country, initially citing the U.S.A. Patriot Act. Mrs. Clinton also cleared the way for another well-known Muslim professor, Adam Habib, who had been denied entry under similar circumstances.

Color me shocked - not.

Al Qaeda's New Weapon

Rent - A - House

Al Qaeda in Iraq is renting residential buildings and rigging them with explosives in a cunning new tactic which has killed dozens of civilians, officials say.

The ploy has defied thousands of security forces in Baghdad by getting around the mass of checkpoints used to deter car bombings.

The new tactic has forced the police and army to change their own operations to counter the terrorists.

America's military has even come up with a new term - HBIED (house-borne improvised explosive device) for the attacks.

The attacks have also left hundreds of people injured in the past month in the Iraqi capital.

Always killing fellow Muslims - that's the alQaeda way.

Green Party Announces Anti-Macho Manifesto

(Bonn, Germany) At the Green Party National Women's Congress this weekend in Bonn, the party leadership announced an anti-macho manifesto to achieve gender justice among all Greens. The new and stronger gender message is now proclaimed to be: "We no longer need to be macho!" along with "equality and male feminism."

The signatories include several Green politicians from the European parliament, the German Bundestag as well as local Green leaders. "We no longer want to be macho," it declares, "we want to be people. You are not born a man, you are turned into one."

The men's manifesto makes two main points. First, men need to break out of their traditional gender roles. "We need a new awareness of a new masculinity," write its co-authors Sven Lehmann and Jan Philipp Albrecht. Second, they argue that their fellow men need to realize that real equality will not happen without their participation.

"We want to live differently!" writes Lehmann, a senior member of the North Rhine-Westphalia branch of the party, and the European parliamentarian Albrecht. They appeal for a slower pace of life, less focus on profit and more health consciousness. They want to start holding "Boys' Days and gender-sensitive career-guidance sessions."

Interestingly, while announcing a formal edict regarding suppression of testosterone in the male population, the Greens also recently announced an LGBT Manifesto which formally declares that all people are to be treated equally and fairly. Maybe it's just me, but in the fairness and equality arena, it seems that male heterosexuals lose.

Remember, you're not born a wuss. You're turned into one. (More....)

That's Yemen for you

Arif Mujali blew up a ship in 2002, was eventually arrested. He escaped jail in 2006. He was plotting to attack the British Embassy when he was arrested again. Mujali was released this week without explanation or charge.

When the Yemeni government starts releasing al Qaeda, its important to look at the other side of the deal. Its usually a quid pro quo or maybe a high ranking military commander pulled some strings to get him out.

Yemen Post Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula AQAP rejected on Wednesday reports including statements by a Somali minister that it had relocated to Somalia, the News Yemen reported.

On the other hand, an official source said that security authorities had freed an Al-Qaeda-linked detainee, Arif Mujali who escaped from the Central Prison in Sana'a in 2006. Mujali was charged with attacking the French oil tanker off Mukalla port in 2002. Mujala was recently arrested among a group that planned to attack foreign missions in the country including the British embassy.

Regarding the AQAP statement, the first report of their movement to Somalia came from Yemen, not Somalia.

Ethan McCord and Josh Stieber Need Attention

These two pussies, former soldiers from the Army unit responsible for the Wikileaks "Collateral Murder" incident, have written an open-letter of "Reconciliation and Responsibility" to those injured in the July 2007 attack.

I'm not linking the letter or the peace-at-any-cost sites that are trumpeting the brave patriots for "standing up for justice" (Read: Trying to lower America's standing). Here are some snippets and get your barf bag ready:

We are both soldiers who occupied your neighborhood for 14 months.

...We humbly ask you what we can do to begin to repair the damage we caused.

From our own experiences, and the experiences of other veterans we have talked to, we know that the acts depicted in this video are everyday occurrences of this war: this is the nature of how U.S.-led wars are carried out in this region.

We acknowledge our part in the deaths and injuries of your loved ones...

The last quote is pretty freakin ironic, especially since "Ethan McCord pulled your daughter and son from the van ....Josh Stieber was in the same company but was not there that day....."

So, Ethan saved the kids' lives and Josh wasn't there. Okayyyyyy. Need attention much?

I am not a military person and I certainly hope I don't offend any true heroes, but my opinion is that serving in the field is as important as holding yourself in good form when you return. If you snipe Osama but come back and rag your country to the benefit of your enemies....you can just throw your medals over the fence. **Ronin opinion only - not the Jawa Report's**

A Twist In Honor Killings - Newborns

dis-honor-killing.jpgFile this under, again, assmaggots


Turkish police Friday detained an unmarried mother and six other people near Istanbul for their suspected role in the so-called "honor killing" of a 2-day-old baby girl, state news agency Anatolian said.

The baby was suffocated by her grandmother after the family learned the 25-year-old mother became pregnant out of wedlock, Anatolian said.

Probably a good thing the mother was detained. Family can't kill her while she is in custody.

Update: Look at these women

That's why I said the unmarried woman was lucky to be in jail. I realize the above is in Pakistan, no difference. Honor killing/attempted honor killing is still the same wherever you live.

Marital Rape a Violation of Islamic Law: Yemen Cleric

We've seen hundreds of instances where Islamic clerics justify and encourage violence against women. A dissenting opinion deserves similar play:

Yemen Times: There is no law in Yemeni legislation that defines a minimum age for marriage. However, there are Islamic legislations that prevent men from forcing their wives into intercourse. Renowned religious scholar Mohammed Hassan said that the Islamic Jurisprudence prohibits forced intercourse between the husband and wife.

"If a woman is forced to bed by her husband, she should know that he is committing a sin and should be punished according the jurisprudence. She should not think that Islam discriminates against women, it is the sole act of this man," he said.

He emphasized that, in Islam, marriage is a relationship based on kindness and empathy as read in the Roman’s Chapter in the Quran verse 21: "And among His signs is that He created spouses for you from yourselves for you to gain rest from them, and kept love and mercy between yourselves; indeed in this are signs for the people who ponder."

"The essence of the marital relationship is passion and the husband should make his wife feel that he wants more than just her body for early pleasure but also her companionship and emotions, and so should the wife. Aggressiveness and violence in the bedroom is not acceptable in Islam," he added.

The Prophet Mohammed (MPBH) had said: "Do not fall onto your wife like an animal, and have a messenger between the two of you." He was asked: "What is this messenger?" He replied: "The kiss and the conversation."

What If OBL Followers Had A Facebook Account?

Wait, they did. At least this one, several others thrive.

Security experts contacted Facebook and they shut it down

The al Qaeda leader, or someone posing as him, was using the social-networking site as a platform to show videos and speeches to Islamic militants -- until Facebook shut him down, that is.

His address was given as "the mountains of the world."

On Thursday, a security expert urged Facebook's U.S. owners to shut down the profile page, named "The leader of the Mujahideen, Osama bin Laden." The profile became active on March 25 and had already attracted nearly 1,000 extremists. Access was via the Taliban's own Facebook presence, according to U.K. publication The Sun.

Although the language used is Arabic, messages in English were beginning to appear, the Sun reported

Who gives a rats behind if it was in Arabic for God's sake. Online terrorism comes in many languages..sheesh.

Now if Facebook would listen to our complaints about other ehadi accounts instead of suspending accounts such as Rusty's. Mine was also suspended but I kinda posted too many sexy images of muslimah's.

Sexy, not porn, images - bad - images of beheading/etc - good. Go figure.

Update: Clarification - I posted the sexy images on Jihadist FB pages. Rusty? He didn't do anything to warrant a suspension, in fact he hardly posted on his page.

Anwar Awlaki's brother attacks researcher in Sana'a

Anwar Awlaki's brother Omar verbally attacked and threatened a Salafi researcher on al Qaeda as he was leaving a mosque in Sana'a yesterday. Saeed Obaid Jamahi said in an interview with al Tagheer (The Change), an independent news site, that Omar Awlaki confronted him and threatened to kill him in front of dozens of worshipers. Jamahi told al Tagheer the attack surprised him because he sympathizes with Anwar Awlaki's cause and believes Awlaki should not be hunted or killed without clear evidence of wrong doing. Jamahi urged the Ministry of the Interior and Attorney General to do their duty and take the threats seriously.

Ah, update from a witness: Saeed Ubeid was interviewed at his home by a western TV channel which was conducting a series of interviews for a program on Anwar al Awlaqi. As Anwar's home was in the same neighborhood, the channel called Nassir al Alwalqi (Anwar's father and a leading member of the ruling party) for an interview. He refused and asked the channel to stop "campaigning against his son" and insulted the channel aggressively. Afterward, Mr. Ubeid left his home for prayer in the neighborhood mosque, where he met with Anwar's brother who insulted him, tried to physically attack him and threatened him with death.

OMG, It's a SEX Quake


A senior Iranian cleric has claimed that dolled-up women incite extramarital sex, causing more earthquakes in Iran, a country that straddles several fault lines, newspapers reported on Saturday.

"Many women who dress inappropriately ... cause youths to go astray, taint their chastity and incite extramarital sex in society, which increases earthquakes," Ayatollah Kazem Sedighi told worshippers at Friday prayers in Tehran.

The mad mullahs truly are insane.

Meanwhile, burka quakes happened in Northwest Pakistan.

Two suicide bombers dressed in burqas struck a crowd of displaced people collecting aid handouts, killing at least 32 and wounding more than 50 on Saturday at a camp in northwest Pakistan.

The bombers struck minutes apart in the Kacha Pukha camp on the outskirts of the garrison city of Kohat, a registration centre for people fleeing Taliban violence and Pakistani army operations close to the Afghan border.

Nothing like screwing their own people.

Al Qaeda Frees Abducted Italian Couple


Update on Al Qaeda: "We Will Murder French & Italian Hostages if You Don't Release our Brothers"


An Italian couple who were being held hostage in the west African country of Mali by al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb have been released.

Local officials said Sergio Cicala and Philomene Kaboure were picked up by an army patrol in the eastern Gao region.

Italy's foreign minister said they were "in the hands of Malian authorities" and were being taken to a "safe place".

Mr Cicala and Mrs Kaboure - who is also a citizen of Burkina Faso - were seized in December in neighbouring Mauritania.

Great news for the couple, unfortunately it appears AQIM demands were met. Expect more kidnappings.

"May Allah Kill Matt Stone and Trey Parker" [BUMPED/UPDATED Doesn't South Park Remember Theo Van Gogh?]

UPDATE: We've added more death threats against the creators of South Park at the end of this post.

And so the death threats begin. Radical Islamist Zachary "Abu Talhah al-Amrike" Chesser on his Twitter account:

May Allah kill Matt Stone and Trey Parker and burn them in Hell for all eternity. They insult our prophets Muhammad, Jesus, and Moses...
This is Zach.

All the more ironic given that this was a response to the latest episode of South Park in which Mohammad is portrayed as having a super power which celebrities want.

What is Muhammad's super power? No one can criticize him.

Something celebrities would die -- or kill -- for.

But they weren't making fun of Muhammad. They were making fun of Muslims like Zach who are the only group of religious zealots who threaten violence every time they are offended.

Which makes this whole thing perfectly ironic.

And it's not just Zach, but his buddies on the forums and over at Facebook who are pissed off at South Park for once again pointing out that they are a bunch of thin-skinned dirtbags.

UPDATE: Here are some of the threats being thrown around at one Islamic forum which Zach is affiliated with. Click the image to see a bigger version of it, but it's an image of the murdered film maker with the warning, "Theo Van Gogh - Have Matt Stone and Trey Parker forgotten this?"


The author of the post then asks, "Where do they live?"

But who is the author of the post? None other than Zach Chesser.

But don't worry, he says, "This is not a threat, but a warning."

After which he answers his own question and gives out the address to Parker and Stone's offices with the advice that you can contact them or, "pay them a visit".

And a link to a Huffington Post article about a home Parker and Stone built in Colorado.

Not a threat. Right.

And how do other users respond?

"May Allah destroy these filthy kuffar."

"when will they learn?"

"Perhaps only when the angel of death comes to them, then they will learn."

You know, like the Angel of death when he visited Theo Van Gogh to teach we kafirs a lesson.

Nothing to worry about people. Nothing to worry about.

Here's a clip of the episode which spawned the threats, but you can watch the whole thing here.

Navy Restores Access To FOX News Site After Hours Off Line


Members of the U.S. Navy were denied access to FoxNews.com for hours on Friday before service was finally restored shortly before noon ET, the Navy confirmed.

Cdr. Danny Hernandez, a Navy spokesman, said he was unable to offer an exact reason why access to Fox News' Web site had been blocked, but he said it most definitely was a technical issue.

"This was not a policy issue," Hernandez said.

Fox News received e-mails from Navy personnel around the world on Friday complaining that they could not gain access to the Web site. They said they were able to view numerous other news Web sites.

When they tried to access FoxNews.com, the following message appeared: "Access to this site has been denied in accordance with Navy policy to safeguard the security posture and/or to maintain the operational integrity of the NMCI."

Insider: Ohio Homeland Security had to destroy thousands of "anti-radicalization" brochures for promoting terror-linked groups

**Sticky. Check below for more updates.***

Last month I noted an Investigative Project article noting that Ohio Homeland Security had published materials that Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, president of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy, characterized as "classic Islamist propaganda". These items were written by the homeland security office's multicultural affairs director, Omar Alomari.

Now an insider has contacted us informing us that Ohio Homeland Security had to destroy thousands of the brochures mentioned in the previous article for promoting terror-linked groups and that they are trying to promote Alomari as a "de-radicalization" expert. Can it be really just coincidence that the government continually picks the radicalized foxes to guard the de-radicalization hen-house?

The brochure in question published by Ohio Homeland Security is entitled "Agents of Radicalization". The Investigative Project described it contents:

Alomari also authored a two-page brochure called "Agents of Radicalization" for the Ohio Department of Homeland Security. In it, he lists several grievances driving terrorism in the Muslim world, including Israel's occupation and oppression of the Palestinians, U.S. support for Israel, the U.S. invasion and occupation of Muslim lands and support for repressive regimes. [i.e. it has nothing about Islamic ideology - B] Alomari goes on to explain that such terrorism also stems from the expected societal reaction of the once proud and thriving Arab/Muslim culture, now in decline and conflict because of the stronger and aggressive West.

Jasser describes the two publications as "full of factual inaccuracies" including the assertion that 66 percent of American Arabs are Muslim (close to three-fourths are Christian). Alomari also "misses the core problem: political Islam." Instead, he indulges in "bizarre revisionist history" which "seeks to portray Muslims as victims."

The United States is engaged in "a war of ideas" with radical Islam. Regarding jihadists, "you would hope that [Alomari] would say that these are corrupt thugs who have hijacked our faith," Jasser told the Investigative Project on Terrorism. But instead he "describes [terrorism] as a response to what the West has done."

The material Alomari's agency is putting out is "classic Islamist propaganda" which suggests that "these thugs who kill people in restaurants and shopping malls will stop if we solve the Arab-Israeli conflict," Jasser said. "In fact, they'll find another grievance in a year or two."

The article goes on to state that the brochure lists seven different Islamic organizations, many of which were listed by the Department of Justice as unindicted co-conspirators in the Holy Land Foundation trial.

We recently received an email from a State of Ohio employee who recounts what happened to Alomari's radicalization brochure (apologies for just now getting around to it):

I read your recent article about our department's publication entitled "Agents of Radicalization."


I work with Omar Alomari and I can tell you what actually happened with that brochure. Thousands of copies were printed up by the department (at taxpayer expense, of course). Some copies had been provided to some of our partner agencies. As boxes of these things were getting ready to be shipped out, our director was contacted by some counter-terrorism officials and told that the brochure was promoting groups that the FBI and other agencies were trying to distance themselves from (like CAIR). The director was told that Department of Justice had linked several of these groups to terrorist organizations (CAIR, ISNA, MAS, etc).

The end result is that the radicalization brochure never saw the light of day. All of the copies that were about to be sent out had to be destroyed and employees were sent that day to the other agencies to collect the handful that had already been distributed. We don't even have the pdf posted on our website anymore. I know a few hard copies still exist that people inside and outside our office have held onto because of the fiasco. I can try to get you one if you need proof. I'm not sure how much the state paid to print these up only to have to destroy them before they ever went out, but I'm sure someone could file a public records request to find out. It was around March or April 2008 as I recall. [Anyone want to submit that request? Contact us! - B]

It is common knowledge in our office that Omar is definitely not on our team. He hangs out with these same terror-linked groups and even brings them into meetings he arranges to give them legitimacy. But now our agency and especially our director Bill Vedra is pushing Omar out as some kind of national de-radicalization expert. It is no secret to anyone who knows him that Omar Alomari IS a radical, but he is great at playing the "moderate" when he needs to be.

In hindsight, I'm glad the brochure didn't go out, because it was clearly "Islamist propaganda" as described in your article. But we all know Omar is untouchable because of his connection to our local Islamofascists who will lay siege to our office and brand anyone a bigot that dares say a word against him. He is the one who keeps the bad guys aware of what goes on in our office. CAIR is the one who got him this job in the first place!!! Because he is basically the information pipeline to the wrong people it is virtually impossible to do our job to protect the public as long as Omar is in our office. And our agency's leadership -- especially Bill Vedra -- being a bunch of cowards makes it even worse.

I'm contacting you through my personal email for obvious reasons and I have to ask that you keep my identity strictly confidential. Any criticism of Omar and his friends is strictly forbidden and I would get fired for even breathing a word about this. But to confirm my identity, feel free to call me at the office - 614-XXX-XXXX [edited, duh - B].

I did contact the correspondent and confirmed that they did in fact work at the Ohio Department of Public Safety. They definitely hold a position where they would know about these matters. Our thanks for their willingness to take a risk to inform the public. I'll post more information if and when I get it.

A Whisper


By: MAJ JF Sucher, MD

A singular sentence in reply to a common, simple question. A whisper from Afghanistan has returned a loud echo from Laconia, New Hampshire, a small town of 12,000 (40,000 in the summer) nestled amongst the glacial lakes in the center of the state.

Dr. Sam Aldridge has practiced peripheral vascular surgery in Laconia, NH for the past 15 years based solely on a gentlemen’s handshake with Tom Clairmont, CEO of Lakes Region General Hospital, who has been a stalwart supporter of Aldridge’s military commitment.

On January 15th, 2010 LTC Aldridge left for his third active duty deployment since joining the Army Reserves Medical Corps. Before leaving, Danielle Mostoller, the hospital’s PR representative, had LTC Aldridge promise to write regular updates that would be placed in the hospital’s email newsletter, which reaches 1600 people.

By February, 2010 LTC Aldridge was settled in with the 909th Forward Surgical Team (FST) in Forward Operating Base (FOB) Shank located in Logar Province, Afghanistan.

Soon after Aldridge’s “updates” hit the hospital newsletter, people began to respond. Danielle asked if there was anything they could send him. Maybe some care packages of snacks or books and such? LTC Aldridge, knowing that there were so many people around him that really did need something, responded with a simple request of socks for the Afghan soldiers and school supplies for the orphaned children of a nearby local village. A singular sentence. A simple whisper.

The results from a simple whisper. Truly amazing story, amazing images, be sure to read it all.

I searched and found MAJ JF Sucher, MD has a blog - FaST Surgeon(in Afghanistan) Indeed the images and stories are amazing there. Just think, the Wikileaks unstory was spread far and wide and this?

God Bless our troops, they are true heroes.

Obama also credited his signature economic recovery package with putting more than two million Americans back to work and with cutting taxes for families, small businesses and students. And he singled out the anti-tax tea party movement that fanned out across the country Thursday to hold demonstrations and rallies marking Tax Day.

"I've been a little amused over the last couple of days where people have been having these rallies about taxes," the president said, noting the numerous tax cuts pushed by his administration. "You would think they'd be saying thank you."(emphasis mine)

Teacher Strike Monday Proves Right's Point About Public Sector Largesse Beautifully

I only highlight this because it's in my neck of the woods and it's such a pitch-perfect example of everything that's wrong with the public sector and Democrat union-centric politics that it can't be ignored anymore:

That decision came after the school board unanimously rejected an arbitration report on Thursday night.

The teachers' most recent contract expired in September.

According to a report in The Intelligencer, the union asked for a three-year contract with 3.5 percent raises in the first year and 4 percent raises in the second and third, plus step increases based on education and experience. The district asked for a two-year contract with no raises in the first year and 1 percent raises in the second, plus step increases.

Good for the district for saying "go f*%k yourselves" to the union.

Remember - this is all about THE CHILDRENZ!@!!11!!! Not the teacher's constant pay increases and gold-plated benefits. I know that my children go to bed at night worrying about how their teacher is going to survive without large automatic non-merit-based pay raises each year and minimal contributions to their health coverage. Oh, the humanity! Won't you please think of feathering our nests with your money THE CHILDRENZ??!!@11

This is why item number one with a GOP Congress and WH should be to outlaw public employee unions. Fiscal responsibility demands nothing less.

Jihad Against Jihad

Sounds like something WWE would try for ratings.

Pakistan intercepted a message that the Pakistani Taliban (TTP) has added an Islamic scholar to their list of people to kill. This shouldn't surprise anyone since the list simply says "Everybody, even Muslim, since they are just sitting there. I mean right freakin' there for Allah sakes."

Tahir ul-Qadri issued a fatwa (Sorry Howie - not for you) condemning terrorism last month. Here are some quotes from the Foreign Policy article:

"I have declared a jihad against terrorism," says the 59-year-old Qadri in an interview. "I am trying to bring [the terrorists] back towards humanism. This is a jihad against brutality, to bring them back towards normality. This is an intellectual jihad."

What makes him significant is the uncompromising rigor of his vision, which deploys a vast array of classical Islamic sources to support the case that those who commit terrorist acts are absolutely beyond the pale.

While quite a few scholars before have condemned terrorism as haram (forbidden), the new fatwa categorically declares it to be no less than kufr (acts of disbelief). "There was a need," says Qadri, "to address this issue authentically, with full authority, with all relevant Quranic authority -- so that [the terrorists] realize that whatever they've been taught is absolutely wrong and that they're going to hellfire. They're not going to have paradise, and they're not going to have 72 virgins in heaven. They're totally on the wrong side."(emphasis mine)

Uh oh. Wrong side huh?

I read this hadith the other day that said Jihadis are ghey. It was a pretty good read.

These Charitable Trusts Aren't What You Think They Are For

Unless you're thinking of alQaeda and the Taliban.

Via Long War Journal

The US Treasury Department has designated two Pakistanis as terrorists for using charitable front organizations to funnel money to al Qaeda and the Taliban. The Karachi-based terrorists have not been detained by the Pakistani government, despite providing open support for the Taliban, al Qaeda, and other terror groups.

Mohammed Mazhar, the director of the Al Akhtar Trust, and Mufti Abdul Rahim, the leader of the Al Rashid Trust, have been designated as terrorists under Executive Order 13224 for "providing support to terrorists or acts of terrorism." The designation allows the US to freeze their assets, prevent them from using financial institutions, and prosecute them for terrorist activities.[ more]

Lieberman Warns He'll Issue Subpoenas Over Ft Hood Shootings

Go get em Lieberman/Collins! The handling of this by the Obi One administration has been a outrage. Our fallen heroes deserve better than this.

The Hill

Senate Homeland Security Committee Chairman Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) accused the Obama administration of stalling a congressional investigation into the Fort Hood shootings and threatened to start issuing subpoenas.

His vow opens a new rift with the White House for the Independent Lieberman, as well as the possibility of President Barack Obama’s first legal showdown with Congress.

At a press conference Thursday, Lieberman said he would give the administration until Monday to release information about the shootings and, if it didn’t, would start subpoenaing.

Lieberman and ranking Homeland Security panel member Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) said they would issue the subpoenas to the Defense Department and Justice Department under their own authority and would seek full committee approval to take the administration to court if the information isn’t released.

A stern Lieberman said he and Collins have been stalled for five months in their attempts to seek answers in the Nov. 5, 2009, tragedy at the Texas military base, in which 13 people were shot dead. An Army psychiatrist, Maj. Nidal Hasan, is accused of the murders, which Lieberman and others have described as an act of terrorism because Hasan had been in contact with Islamic clerics and may have acted out of opposition to the Iraq and Afghanistan wars.

Obama Ready To Tackle Jobs

Did I say "Tackle Jobs? I meant "Crap All Over The US's Relationship With The Best Ally In The Middle East Who, IMO, Is On The Second Or Third Front In The War Against Extremist Islam".

Actually, he hasn't said a thing about jobs. Oh, no, he has mentioned Cap and Trade which will make all kinds of jobs....somehow. Its true because He says its true and so it will be...kinda like Liger magic and cost savings with Obamacare.

So the New York Times analyzes Ofumble's speech from last Tuesday.

When Mr. Obama declared that resolving the long-running Middle East dispute was a “vital national security interest of the United States,” he was highlighting a change that has resulted from a lengthy debate among his top officials over how best to balance support for Israel against other American interests.

Mr. Obama said conflicts like the one in the Middle East ended up “costing us significantly in terms of both blood and treasure” — drawing an explicit link between the Israeli-Palestinian strife and the safety of American soldiers as they battle Islamic extremism and terrorism in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere.

Hey Ofumble, what's the name of that place with all the goofy shit on the walls and the mozerella sticks?

I think the Senate called shenanigans on Ofumble too.


More than three quarters of the U.S. Senate, including 38 Democrats, have signed on to a letter to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton implicitly rebuking the Obama Administration for its confrontational stance toward Israel.

A similar letter garnered 333 signatures in the House

John Kerry didn't sign? He and Carter must have been away making best friends with Assad or something.

Top War Correspondent's Embed In Afghanistan Halted

The US Report

No one reporting on the Global War on Terror has done a more effective or honest job than Michael Yon. For one thing he knows the military, having served in U.S. Army Special Forces. With his camera and his pen, he enabled readers to see aspects of war corporate media could or would not divulge.

On Saturday, April 10, Yon posted a message on his magazine-style website. “[A] message came from military that this embed has ended.” He headed off to pack his bags for the trip home from Afghanistan.[...]

Yon said he was told the reason for ending the embed was “overcrowding by journalists.” Hard to read that one with a straight face, isn’t it?

“Haven’t seen a journalist in weeks,” he wrote.

A number of theories were offered by his fans, with some blaming Gen. Stanley McChrystal, commander of US forces in Afghanistan. McChrystal’s review of the Rules of Engagement after President Barack Obama took office has drawn criticism from those who have served or have family members serving.

Troop deaths doubled in Afghanistan for the first three months of 2010. Corporate media and wire services attributed the increase to Obama's increase in troops, but that is a political conclusion based on assumptions rather than a conclusion based on hard fact.[...]

A current example not related to Yon is the corporate media approach to a video of action in Iraq leaked by the Wikileaks website. [ Read it all]

On Yon's FB page he linked to this article stating "Blast from past - applicable now as ever"
Censoring Iraq In a counterinsurgency, the media battlespace is critical. When it comes to mustering public opinion, rallying support, and forcing opponents to shift tactics and timetables to better suit the home team, our terrorist enemies are destroying us. Al Qaeda's media arm is called al Sahab: the cloud. It feels more like a hurricane. While our enemies have "journalists" crawling all over battlefields to chronicle their successes and our failures, we have an "embed" media system that is so ineptly managed that earlier this fall there were only 9 reporters embedded with 150,000 American troops in Iraq. There were about 770 during the initial invasion.
Both articles are a must read as well as his FB page.

Obama Car Czar Steven Rattner Slammed in Pension Probe



Steven Rattner, the man brought in by President Obama to hammer the auto industry back into shape, had his reputation badly dented by his own company today when it disavowed the way he allegedly used a middle man to get New York State to invest with his Quadrangle Group as "inappropriate, wrong, and unethical.

The firm made the remarks as part of a settlement agreement with New York State Attorney General Andrew Cuomo in his ongoing probe into unethical practices and criminal conduct in connection with the investment of public funds. Quadrangle, which Rattner co-founded, agreed to repay $7 million to New York State and to sign on to Cuomo's "Public Pension Fund Reform Code of Conduct."

Good News: Taliban al-Qaeda Alliance at the Highest Limits

Long War Journal:

The top leader of the dangerous Haqqani Network operating in eastern Afghanistan said that al Qaeda fighters are welcome to fight alongside the Taliban, and that his forces control 90 percent of the areas under his command.

Siraj Haqqani, the military commander of the deadly Haqqani Network, a Taliban group that operates in eastern Afghanistan, made the statements during an interview conducted by Abu Dujanah al Sanaani for the newly established Al Balagh Media Center. A translation of Siraj's interview was provided by Flashpoint Partners.

...When asked about the Haqqani Network and the Taliban's relationship with "mujahideen who emigrate to the land of the Khorasan" and whether they "form any obstacle or burden on the Afghani people," Siraj responded that the foreign fighters, or al Qaeda, "enlighten the road for us and they resist against the cross worshippers by cooperating with us and us with them in one trench." Siraj also said that cooperation between Arab fighters and the Taliban "is at the highest limits."

The Cross Worshipers would be us.

Read the rest.

Behold the evil Cross Worshippers oppressing the Afghans. AKA as helping the little Muslim children that the Taliban and al-Qaeda blew up. Extreme tear jerker warning.

Yemeni Jews Seek Assylum In Britain

Despite all the claims that from Muslims I have read that Islam forbids racism and we don't dislike Jews we just oppose Zionism, Muslims in Yemen have persecuted Jews to the point that Great Britain is about allow then to claim refugee status.

Independent: Britain is on the verge of signing a secret deal to allow a small number of Yemeni Jews facing severe persecution in their home country to move to the UK, The Independent has learnt.

...Assaults against the country's small Jewish community intensified to such a level last year that the US State Department organised a series of airlifts to evacuate more than 100 Jews with connections to the Yemeni community already living in America.

...Once out of the country, the Raida Jews will be able to claim refugee status, although each application will still be considered on an individual basis, unlike in the US where all Yemeni Jews are guaranteed asylum.

The common denominator is the rise of support for al-Qaeda. As al-Qaeda's influence grew so did hatred of the Jews.

And yes this same support exists right here in America.

The brothers are deployed from the South Carolina National Guard’s 1/178th Field Artillery, B Battery.

“In the Army, everyone’s like a brother to you,” said Joshua, the younger brother by three years. “In my case, having someone that actually is blood-related serving right next to me is really special.”

Hamas: Ready, Aim Fire

Hamas executes two "collaborators" with Israel

In the first such executions in Gaza for five years and the first since Hamas seized power, the two men were killed by firing squad before dawn, said Samir Zakut of the Palestinian human rights group Al-Misan.

"This morning, the death sentences against collaborators Mohammed Ibrahim Ismail, 37, from Rafah, and Nasser Salameh Abu Freih, 34, of Jabaliya, were carried out," the Hamas interior ministry said on its website.

"They had been found guilty of collaborating for several years with the Zionist occupiers and of having as a result caused the death of several fighters," it said.

Ummm no Hamas, your mujahideen deaths caused by inability to hide behind women and children. You're so good at that.

Gunshots Heard at Polish Plane Crash?

I'm only posting this because: a) it's being shown on the Islamist forums as evidence that the mujahideen brought the plane down; b) it's being shown on a number of other websites as evidence that the Russians brought the plane down.

I don't believe either version. If those really are gunshots, then I think the far more likely explanation is that Russian police [милиция] are firing shots into the air to warn off people.

I've lived in Russia and if the police out in the boondocks are as unprofessional as the police in Moscow, then it not only wouldn't it surprise me if they were shooting in the air but it would surprise me if they weren't.

I speak a little Russian, but I can't vouch for the translation as most of the voices are very feint. But if the translation is right, then I think the scenario I've laid out is much more likely than either of the two conspiracy theories.

For instance, before the alleged shots are heard someone is saying off in the distance, "Get out of here you bastards."

Then, "Get out of here."

Then there's yelling which goes untranslated by the video maker, but I'm pretty sure the voice is saying, "давай" which is what you say when you are trying to get someone to hurry up, kind of like, "come on!"

Then, "we're all going back". And, "Sir, get out of here. We're all leaving."

I'm not 100% sure what the guy holding the camera says next, but it's not "Give me a gun" as some suggest. It's been 15 years since I really had a long conversation in Russian. Maybe someone wants to translate that?

It's only at this point that I hear what could be a gunshot and a voice saying, "Everyone, move back! Let's go."

So, if those really are gunshots then I think that the most likely explanation is that it's the local yokel police trying to warn off lookie loos (perhaps even the military, given that this was a state function with all the added security -- and the Russian military is even less professional than the police).

Another explanation, though, is those aren't gunshots at all, but rather secondary minor explosions from the crash. Notice the fire burning? Ever throw a can of soda pop in a fire? Every former Boy Scout knows what I'm talking about.

Here's the video. You be the judge.

Thanks to Stephen.

Yes, Huffington Post Hates the Troops

As Colbert noted the other day, 90% of Americans who have heard about the alleged "murder" of civilians in Iraq by US troops won't actually take the time to watch the video which clearly vindicates them.

And how did the Huffington Post -- one of the leading left-of-center blogs -- contextualize the report? By reporting the Wiki Leak "collateral murder" lies as if they were the truth.

Now that we've definitively shown the entire affair to be a hoax propagated by Wiki Leak in order to raise money for the failing website, what has Huff Po done to clarify to its "patriotic" readership that the entire affair was bogus, and that while the deaths of any civilians are tragic, that US soldiers acted entirely within the rules of engagement?

Precisely squat.

Go read the whole affair over at Huff-Watch. It's shameful.

It's more than shameful, it's unpatriotic.

I know there are patriots on the Left. It's just hard to find them when every single accusation leveled at the military seems to be believed by them prima facie.

I'm not saying no one in the military ever does anything bad. Of course that's not the case. There are over a million men and women in uniform, and with numbers that large you are destined to get a few nuts and/or bad apples. Case in point.

What I'm saying is that if your first reaction to an alleged scandal is to believe it, then you need to check your patriot meter.

My first reaction is to put the onus of proof on the accusers, not the military. I'm guessing this is because I love our country and actually know that our military is run by professionals and manned by people like you and me. Good people. Not the kind of people who routinely kill civilians for fun.

Our men and women in uniform have made grave and mortal sacrifices of time, money, and blood for our nation. If any one deserves an assumption of innocence until proven guilty, they do. Anything short of this is unpatriotic.

British Nanny State

(Isle of Anglesey, UK) Peter and Claire Davey, parents of seven children with one on the way and plans for 14 total, are unemployed and live entirely on welfare.

The Daveys subsist in their four-bedroom home, with two cars and a 42-inch wide-screen among other electronic gizmos, on the paltry sum of £42,000 a year in benefits. That's about $65,000.

For some strange reason, the Daveys complain that they deserve more in benefits.

Mrs Davey, who has never had a full-time job, told Closer magazine: "It's hard. We can't afford holidays and I don't want my kids living on a council estate and struggling like I have.

"I don't feel bad about being subsidised by people who are working. I'm just working with the system that's there.

"If the government wants to give me money, I'm happy to take it. We get what we're entitled to. I don't put in anything because I don't pay taxes, but if I could work I would.

"We couldn't afford to care for our children without benefits, but as long as they have everything they need, I don't think I'm selfish."

Mr. Davey said he's better off unemployed than working.

The British government deserves condemnation for turning a population of proud and independent people formerly at the forefront of industry and invention into a parasitic crowd of arrogant beggars.

Standby, Americans, nanny state is coming soon to your neighborhood.

Iraqi security forces disrupted a 9/11-style plot by al-Qaida in Iraq to fly hijacked planes into Shiite religious shrines, Iraqi and U.S. officials said Wednesday.

Iraqi security officials said they temporarily shut down at least two airports and have arrested two men — one of the intended pilots and an airport worker

Henry Waxman Rochambeaus Himself

Waxman, (Dillweed-CA) Flew into a snit when several large companies announced that Obamacare would cost them millions and decided to call them on the carpet in front of his committee.

Now Waxman has quietly spiked his inquisition:

A House Energy and Commerce Committee spokeswoman tells me that Chairman Henry Waxman, D-Calif., has indeed cancelled the April 21 subcommittee hearing in which CEOs were to testify about Obamacare.
Why? As it turns out, and Waxman's staff could have found out with a minimum of research, the companies were legally required to report the impact of the new socialized medicine law on their bottom lines:
The CEOs, required by law to be honest about earnings projections, re-stated their bottom lines in reaction to Obamacare's passage, earning the ire of Waxman and other Democrats.

Hearings on this matter would likely have proved an embarrassment to the Democrats and helped drag out discussion of Obamacare's unexpected ill effects.

Metaphorical conception of Waxman self-administered nutshot:

Rahm over at Terror Free Somalia brings us word that al Qaeda's Somali affilliate, the al Shabaab Youth Mujahideen Movement (al Shabaab), have beheaded a man in the streets of Mogadishu.

Interview With A Former Revolutionary Guard

News Real Blog:

Reza Kahlili (an alias) recently wrote the book, A Time To Betray, a portrayal of his double life as a Revolutionary Guard member and CIA Agent.

NRB: A very riveting part of the book was your description of Roya, a girl arrested, sent to Evin Prison, and tortured because she was falsely accused of being part of an opposition group. Here is a portion of her letter to you before she hung herself:

I wish I was one of those girls who were lucky enough to go in front of the firing squad. They took everything from me in that prison. I have nothing left…When I was in solitary confinement these filthy, evil men would come to my cell…not even animals would do what they did. They raped me, but it was more than rape. When they were through they kicked me in the back as hard as they could, threw me down next to the toilet…They would make us hold one leg up for a long time. If you got tired, they would lash you on the tired leg. Some would faint from the pain and bleeding. They cut my arm with a knife and told me that they would cut my throat the next time if I did not confess. The next day they sent me to a small dark room where another guard raped me. This was the routine.”
Comparing those techniques, like putting someone in a cell with an insect, if they call that torture then they don’t know what torture is. Torture is what was done in that prison, the most disgusting things to innocent people.

Birthers To Start Investing in Soap on a Rope

Hey Lt. Col. Terry Lakin, watch out for the cornhole buddy:

U.S. military officials tell NBC News that the U.S. Army will court martial a lieutenant colonel who refuses to deploy to Afghanistan because he considers orders from President Obama to be "illegal."

Army doctor Lt. Col. Terry Lakin believes Obama does not meet the constitutional requirements to be president and commander-in-chief, because he believes (incorrectly) that Obama wasn't born in the United States.

Which just goes to show that in an organization as large as the US military, you are bound to get a few nuts in the ranks. It's the law of averages.

One wonders if Lakin displayed any signs of mental illness in the past but the military powers that be overlooked them because they really need doctors? Kind of like they did with Nidal Hasan and his public flirtations with violent jihadism.

US Freezes Assests of Somali Pirates, Militants and Yemeni Weapons Dealer

President Obama signed an executive order freezing the US assets of Somali pirates and militants, and Yemeni Fares Manna for violating the arms embargo on Somalia. Nice move!!! I guess Manna's smuggled shipload of Chinese weapons (and all the ships before) didn't exactly escape notice. Yemeni arms to Somalia is a main cause of instability, the UN found. I have no idea if Fares Manna has US assets, but for sure he's a leading regional arms smuggler. I've been saying that for five years. Fares Manna was also the Yemeni government's prime negotiator with the Houthi rebels and his brother Hassan was the governor of the war torn Sa'ada governorate until Fares was arrested last month.

AP Obama's action would allow the Treasury Department to sanction or freeze the assets of individuals involved in piracy off Somalia's coast or militants who have done anything to threaten the shaky nation's stability.

The piracy and eroding security in Somalia, where al-Qaida linked insurgents are finding sanctuary, "constitute an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States," Obama said in an executive order.

The order targets anyone who threatens the peace, interferes with the delivery of humanitarian assistance or violates the United Nations arms embargo in the lawless nation.

Earlier Tuesday, Treasury officials imposed new sanctions on nearly a dozen suspected Islamist militants, including some linked to the al-Shabab terrorist group in Somalia....

The Treasury Department said that it would also freeze the assets of: Abshir Abdillahi, 44; Hassan Abdullah Hersi al-Turki, 66; Ahmed Abdi aw-Mohamed, 33; Yasin Ali Baynah, 44; Mohamed Abdi Garaad, 37; Yemane Ghebreab, 59; Fuad Mohamed Khalaf; Bashir Mohamed Mahamoud, 28; Mohamed Sa'id, 44; and Fares Mohammed Mana'a, a Yemeni who reportedly holds a diplomatic passport from Yemen. All of the ages are estimates provided by the department.

Mana'a, one of the biggest arms dealers in Yemen, has been arrested and in the custody of Yemeni authorities for more than a month.

Liberal Democrats Scrambling to Send Their Racists to Tea Party Rallies To Foment Racial Hatred

Boy. Those ever-uniting, one-love, one-world peacemakers known as Democrats are really outdoing themselves this time, aren't they?

I mean, showing up at tea party rallies where people are expressing opposition to out-of-control government spending and higher taxation with signs covered in the most vile racial hatred these Democrats could come up with in their creative little brains for the attention of their buddies in the news media? Only a Republican could think up something like that! Oh, wait...

Who would have ever thought such a wonderful, tolerant, principled group of Obama supporters could ever unite a nation such as this with such wonderful gestures. Truly, we are blessed to have these enlightened souls around trying to incite racial animosity when there is no racism to be found.

The upside? You now get to see what white liberals knock around in their heads when thinking about racism - namely, they feed on their deepest, most hate-filled racist emotions and put them on a sign. And blame YOU for, er, making them write racist crap on their signs and shout racist epithets.

On full display. For the public and the media.

So here's what you do - charge your batteries, set your video recorders to TRUTH and shoot away. Make sure your batteries are charged, because the really dedicated trolls will be trying to make trouble all day. I suggest that if you catch one of these pricks doing what they're claiming they're going to do, follow them around for the rest of the day with a video camera and don't let them out of your sight.

Jihad a legit defense in Yemen, no worries for Anwar Awlaki

Yemen’s Foreign Minister Abu Baker al Qirby urged Anwar Awlaki to turn himself to be tried under Yemeni law, vowing that no Yemeni citizen would be extradited to the US or any other country.

The US announced last week that it had authorized Awlaki’s kill or capture, having determined he is an active al Qaeda operative. Awlaki was previously known for brainwashing vulnerable persons on the internet. Awlaki holds duel Yemeni-American citizenship.

“Yemen is going to prosecute those within its territory, and they will be punished according to the law if found guilty of any crimes punishable by the law,” al-Qirby said in an interview published by the quasi governmental Yemen Observer.

There is one small problem. Yemen’s law does not criminalize jihad abroad in defense of occupied Muslim lands. If Anwar Awlaki, or any other Yemeni jihaddist, is guilty of conspiring to commit murder in the US, there's no law in Yemen that prohibits or punishes it. Yemeni courts have explicitly accepted jihad as a viable defense.

In one notable terror trial in July 2006, the defendants admitted to fighting in Iraq against coalition forces as well as training suicide bombers. "This does not violate [Yemeni] law," the judge found. “Islamic Sharia law permits jihad against occupiers," he said.

Jihad on American Soldiers and American Civilians

What is jihad? A lethal shooting spree at Fort Hood, according to Anwar Awlaki. Awlaki was in contact with Nidal Hassan prior to the attack and issued a statement after, entitled "Nidal Hassan is a hero.”

Personable and easy spoken, Awlaki is the calm western voice of al Qaeda's bloody fanaticism that slipped under the door of many English speaking homes. His logic of slaughter is chilling: “Nidal opened fire on soldiers who were on their way to be deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan. How can there be any dispute about the virtue of what he has done?” Some of Yemen’s religious authorities also consider US troops as legitimate targets of terrorism.

Yemen’s Koranic dialog program, aimed at reforming al Qaeda terrorists, never discouraged fighting in Iraq. An expedited release program, the dialog program discouraged religious fanatics from defining the regime of President Ali Abdullah Saleh as an apostate. The program’s director, Judge Hamoud al Hittar said in 2005, "Iraq is not a subject of the dialogue." Al Hittar has since become Minster of Endowments. Some state clerics in Yemen call for harm to the US in weekly prayers.

The Yemeni judicial system and religious authorities have found that US soldiers are legitimate targets. Does it matter if they are in Iraq or the US? Yemeni courts would likely agree with Anwar Awlaki that Fort Hood is a legitimate target of jihad.

Awlaki goes further and defines ordinary Americans as sanctioned victims of terrorism. Awlaki was joyous in praising Umar Farouk Abdulmutalla, who tried to blow up a Detroit-bound airliner on Dec. 25. Exploding a jet plane in mid air is legitimate under Islamic law, he says, because "the American populace is living within a democratic regime and they hold the responsibility of its policies.” Awlaki defines all Americans civilians as worthy of a death sentence because they are “participant in all the crimes of their government."

Yemen’s President Ali Abdullah Saleh openly supports many external resistance groups. Hamas and Hezbollah both have official offices in Yemen. A variety of other regional death cults maintain informal offices.

Brit NHS Drops Standards for Muslims

(London, England) The rules of the British National Health Service (NHS) now formally recognize that NHS workers who are Muslims are more equal than those who are Christians.

The Department of Health will allow female Muslim staff to opt out of a strict NHS dress code to cover their arms and protect their modesty.

But campaigners warn that the NHS is putting lives at risk because guidance that all staff should be 'bare below the elbow' was introduced after long sleeves were blamed for spreading MRSA.

The change has been brought in after some female Muslims objected to being forced to bare their arms on wards. The Department of Health has also relaxed its no jewellery rule to let Sikhs wear their Kara bangles as long as they can be pushed up to the elbow when dealing with patients.

The policy is in stark contrast to the treatment of nurse Shirley Chaplin who last week lost her discrimination battle against Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital Trust which claimed the cross she wore round her neck was a 'hazard' in case it scratched patients.

Last night she accused the NHS of 'double standards.' She added: 'What can you say? It seems that life is stacked up against Christians these days.'

So, what's the NHS going to do when the unsterile practices of the Muslims and Sikhs result in death from MRSA infections? I know. They'll blame it on the Christians.

African Taliban Acting Like, Well, The Taliban

Somebody call the Irony Police!

MOGADISHU, Somalia – Rock, rap and love songs once filled the airwaves in Somalia's war-torn capital, one of the few pleasures residents had. But Islamist militants ordered music off the air Tuesday, labeling it un-Islamic in a hardline edict reminiscent of the Taliban.

Actually, it's a hardline edict reminiscent of Mohammed circa 650 A.D. but why quibble over such minor details.

Hanging Out In The Sinai, Still Not A Good Idea After All These Years Since Moses

Bad thousands of years ago, worse now.

JERUSALEM – Israel issued an "urgent" warning Tuesday to its citizens to leave Egypt's Sinai Peninsula immediately citing "concrete evidence of an expected terrorist attempt to kidnap Israelis in Sinai."

The statement from the Israeli prime minister's anti-terror office took the unusual step of calling on families of Israelis visiting the Sinai to establish contact with them.

I mean, at least in the time of Exodus, the worst thing to deal with was the crappy weather, not some homicidal bang your head on the ground five times a day lunatics who wanted to wipe you off the face of the Earth.

Teacher Stephanie Ragusa Guilty of Sex with Boys

(Tampa, Florida) A teary-eyed Stephanie Marie Ragusa, a former middle school teacher now shackled and dressed in jailhouse orange, pleaded guilty yesterday to engaging in sex with two boys.

She pleaded guilty to three counts of lewd and lascivious battery in a March 2008 case involving a 14-year-old boy.

She also pleaded guilty to two counts of having unlawful sex with a minor in an April 2008 case involving a 16-year-old student.

Prosecutor Rita Peters said Ragusa had intercourse with the 14-year-old on three occasions between October 2006 and May 2007. [...]

Peters said the encounters with the other teen began when he was 15. They ended when she was arrested in April 2008 as she was leaving his home.

Sentencing has been scheduled for June 15 when Ragusa, 31, reportedly faces a possible 10 years in prison. Interestingly, Ragusa compares herself to Debra Lafave, another convicted boy-molester in the Tampa area. (More....)

Good News: Hezbollah Has Scud Missiles

If you want to know the truth, I've found a lot of Obama's foreign policy quite rational and I might even have to admit that, looked at individually, many of them make sense.

But there's a meta-narrative going on here as well, and foreign policy cannot be broken down to a bunch of discrete and unconnected actions: they also send signals.

Add many of Obama's policies together and the signal being sent to terror supporting states like Syria is that we are much less apt to respond should they attack Israel. Not that Israel needs protection from us, but to the Mad Mullahs and their puppets in Damascus the only thing keeping Israel from utter destruction is our protection.

Mad because in reality the only thing keeping the Israelis from completely annihilating their enemies is our protection ... of Israel's enemies!

We wouldn't want to upset Arabs with oil now would we?

So, it was only a matter of time before the Syrians decided to carpe dium and pull something like this:

Syria has transferred long-range Scud missiles to the Lebanese Shiite militant group Hezbollah, Israeli and U.S. officials alleged, in a move that threatens to alter the Middle East's military balance and sets back a major diplomatic outreach effort to Damascus by the Obama administration.

Israeli President Shimon Peres on Tuesday publicly charged President Bashar Assad's government with transferring Scud missiles to Hezbollah's forces inside Lebanon. Syria and Hezbollah both denied the charges.

I'd say this changes a few things, doesn't it.

Thanks to Dan.

Yemen Confirms Awlaki Tribe Statement a Hoax

as we, of course, reported yesterday. Its funny how often media hoaxes happen in Yemen and how the western media just spins off the way the Yemeni government wants it to go. The following is from the quasi-governmental Yemen Observer, the English language propaganda arm of the regime:

Al-Qirbi said that al-Awlaki should hand himself over to Yemeni government, and at that point he will be able to defend himself and prove his innocence. “Yemen won’t hand over al-Awlaki or any other Yemeni citizens wanted by the United States, or any other countries. Yemen is going to prosecute those within its territory, and they will be punished according to the law if found guilty of any crimes punishable by the law,” al-Qirbi added.

(ed- Anything that can be characterized as jihad abroad is not illegal in Yemen, ergo the terrorists who admitted fighting in Iraq were charged with document fraud only. The judge agreed that jihad is a Muslim's duty. If Awlaki is guilty of conspiring to kill Americans in the US, there's no law on the books in Yemen that prohibits that, especially if it can be presented as in defense of occupied Muslim lands as Awlaki himself defined the attack at Fort Hood.)

In the meanwhile, Sheikh Abu Bakr Ben Farid al-Awlaki, a sheikh in Shabwah province, denied that there was a tribal forum in al-Awalek’s tribe, regarding Anwar al-Awlaki. A statement, allegedly attributed to the al-Awalek tribes, had been distributed to Yemeni media outlets warning against any cooperation with America in helping arrest or kill al-Awlaki. Ben Farid said that his tribe’s stand is the same as the state’s and that they are avoiding any further confrontations with the state. “We do not know al-Awlaki’s whereabouts,” said Ben Farid to NewsYemen website.

Rusty's Facebook Account Suspended


Violent jihad supporters have Facebook accounts, I don't. You see, Facebook suspended my account today. I've no idea why.

Well, actually, I have a few guesses as to why. You see, some of the Jawas here have been messing with terrorist supporters on Facebook. Over the last few days several prominent Facebook pages dedicated to radical Islam have been suspended because Stable Hand, Howie, and others have filed complaints.

They've also pulled some funny pranks on these terror supporters, such as posting offensive photos.

I suppose this is payback in the minds of the Facebook jihadis. Even though I had nothing to do with the flagging operation or the pranks, I am kind of the symbol of the enemy to these would-be terror supporters.

If having your Facebook page is the price to pay for making the right kind of enemies, so be it.

The only other thing I can think of is that Facebook is pissed off at the dozens of posts we've put up pointing out that terrorists and their supporters use Facebook. The al-Qaeda inspired forums are so yesterday, Facebook is the place for the the terrorist in crowd these days.

I've appealed the decision, but I have no idea how Facebook adjudicates disputes like this. I'm not hopeful, nor am I terribly upset. I only bring this up by way of apology to my many many Facebook friends who may be wondering where I went and to point out that Facebook, like so many internet social networking sites that depend solely on user complaints for policing, has unwittingly become a tool of some very dangerous people.

Colbert Owns Wiki Leak (UPDATE: Video and More PWNAGE Added)

Stephen-Colbert.jpg***Bumped because we're all posting at the same time***

When my students tell me how much they love John Stewart I usually tell them that Stephen Colbert is way better. Sure, I tell them, John Stewart has the smartest writers in late night, but Stephen Colbert has the funniest. And in comedy, I'll take the latter over the former any day of the week.

But in the battle of the brains between Colbert and Stewart, it looks like Colbert wins. Hands down.

Colbert quoted by Mediate:

Let’s talk about this footage that has gotten you so much attention recently. This is footage of an Apache helicopter attack in 2007. The army described this as a group that gave resistance at the time, that doesn’t seem to be happening. But there are armed men in the group, they did find a rocket propelled grenade among the group, the Reuters photographers who were regrettably killed, were not identified…You have edited this tape, and you have given it a title called ‘collateral murder.’

That’s not leaking, that’s a pure editorial. ...

“you have properly manipulated the audience into an emotional state you want before something goes on the air.”

J Crittenden has more commentary, but, oh snap.

For dedication to the troops slimed by Wiki Leak, The Colbert Report is now the official late night show of The Jawa Report. And make sure to pronounce The Jawa Report with its proper French inflection from now on.

UPDATE: Here's the video.

WikiLeaks Military Video
Colbert Report Full EpisodesPolitical HumorFox News

The Colbert ReportMon - Thurs 11:30pm / 10:30c
Julian Assange
Colbert Report Full EpisodesPolitical HumorFox News

UPDATE: Wow, what a liar Julian Assange is. Again, lying by omissions and slight of hand. Maybe the word "RPG" wasn't used before the go signal for firing on the insurgents, that might technically be true. But go watch the video below again.

And I quote:

"Okay, we got fifteen coming at you. It's a guy with a weapon...."

"There's about, uh, four or five ... this location and there's more that keep walking by and one of them has a weapon...."

"See all those people standing down there? Have individuals with weapons."

[Camera zooms to guy with RPG] "Yeah, he's got a weapon too..."

"Have five to six individuals with AK-47s. Request permission to engage."

"Roger that. We have no personnel east of our position. So, uh, you are free to engage."

It's at this point that they are given permission to engage. Weapons were identified, an RPG could be clearly seen, and AK-47s were identified before permission to fire was granted.

Again, the founder of Wiki Leak isn't technically lying when he says the "word RPG" isn't used, but this is a distraction meant to fool the casual observer into thinking that the order to fire was given before weapons were seen.

He even claims that there is still a dispute over whether or not an RPG was ever at the scene. A dispute only because some idiots don't want to see the obvious.

At least one RPG and AK-47 clearly seen before permission to fire given. The pilots then mistake camera slings for AK-47 slings, but the Reuters photographers were clearly with Mahdi Army insurgents.

RPG? What RPG?

And finally, another implication in the statement that there is a dispute over whether or not an RPG was really found is that the US is covering something up. Indeed, the only evidence that an RPG was found is a redacted photo released by the DOD in which no RPG is seen because it is too close to a dead body.

But thanks to Bohica 22, we can definitively show that the redacted part of the photo does, in fact, show an RPG. Click on it for larger.

On one thing I will agree with the highly edited and editorialized version of the Wiki Leak video seen by the 90% of viewers cited by Colbert: the first casualty in war is indeed the truth.


If you haven't seen this video rejoinder made by the Wiki Leak Deception website, you really need to watch. Then, send the link to all your friends.

One thing they point out that I hadn't noticed before is that the van of so-called "good Samaritans" had been spotted earlier in the unedited film .... dropping off insurgents!

UPDATE: Ed has some more observations over at Hot Air.

As to whether or not Colbert wasn't serious with his questions? I dunno, I guess it's possible that this was just part of the shtick, but I think not.

However, the larger point Ed makes might be the one that Colbert himself makes when he argues that Assange is being disingenuous about just wanting "the truth" out there since 90% of people won't actually take the time to view the entire unedited video so they are bound to believe the "murder" charge.

Perhaps by not knowing which parts of Colbert's interview are shtick and which parts are serious criticism of Assange, the casual viewer will be left with the impression that there is some validity to Assange's charges? I hope not.

Clearly, Assange has an agenda and that agenda is hostile to the United States and its military. I think Colbert knows this, but I can only hope his viewers do too.

UPDATE:Go read Uncle Jimbo's comments over at one of my favorite millblogs. Here's a teaser, it ends like this:

Love to have drinks with you sometime Julian, and if that sounds like a threat just remember I'm a pacifist.

Minstry of Irony: Islamists Attack George Galloway


George Galloway's entourage has been attacked by "students" of a controversial Muslim leader, the politician's spokesman has said.

The Respect party candidate for Poplar and Limehouse was campaigning in Watney Market, east London, when three men allegedly abused and lunged at him.

The spokesman said that the trio pushed members of the group and would have attacked Mr Galloway if they could.

Anjem Choudary, ex-leader of Islam4UK, said the claim was "fabricated".

He said the men were his former students who had studied the Islamic religion with him, but refused to say if they were former members of the now-banned Islam4UK group.

Police arrested and bailed three men on suspicion of behaviour likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress.

The alleged incident took place at about 1500 BST on Saturday. No one was injured.

Mr Galloway's spokesman said: "There were three characters who were shouting abuse.

"They were shouting 'kafir' [a derogatory word for non-believer], which is very insulting, and that Mr Galloway deserved to die.

What, did was Mr. Galloway's aid convoy to Gaza not remove that Kufr label?

Guess not.

Hat Tip: Duchess.

This Is My "Big Bertha"


Behind the wheel is Air Force Senior Airman Kayla Manning, from Detachment 2 of the 732nd Expeditionary Security Forces Squadron. Before missions, she almost doubles her weight when she dons her battle gear.

While climbing into this life-saving vehicle, Manning has to place one knee on the MRAP's steps to hoist her weight upward to climb into the vehicle. But despite a stature of just over 5 feet 2 inches, she possesses the power, control and confidence of someone twice her size.

"This is my Big Bertha," said Manning, who is deployed from Edwards Air Force Base, Calif. "Before arriving in Iraq, we were trained on smaller vehicles. Once we arrived here, I was assigned to drive this big beast. Believe it or not, I drive better in this vehicle than the smaller ones."

I especially like the pink steering wheel cover.

New Delhi – Several Injured In Radioactive Cobalt-60 Exposure


Five people suffering serious burns were hospitalized in West New Delhi this week from contact with radioactive material in a Delhi scrap market identified as Cobalt-60 which may be used for making a dirty bomb. Indian police cordoned off the 200 market stores and sealed nearby establishments up to a one-kilometer radius.

Scrap dealer Deepak Jain and his helpers lost consciousness when they cut a piece of scrap metal. A white fluid oozed out causing the burns, Jain’s hair fell out and within minutes his skin turned black.

No leads yet as to the source of the scrap metal.

Just can't keep their hands off each other. Seriously though, not good news.


Taliban militants in Afghanistan are threatening to kill two kidnapped French journalists unless their demands are met, including the release of some detainees held by France.

In a video posted online, the journalists, who were kidnapped in December, are shown in separate clips.

Speaking in English and French, one reads a lengthy statement saying that if "this interview" is not aired on French TV, the journalists will be killed, along with their translator and driver. No other voices are heard in the video, only those of the two journalists.

"The French president, Mr. Nicolas Sarkozy, must understand that we are now in danger of death. I repeat: the French president much negotiate very quickly. Otherwise, we will be executed soon," he says.

France 3 Television -- which had not previously identified its two missing journalists -- identified them Monday as Herve Ghesquiere and Stephane Taponnier.

Obama Administration Issues Visa to Tariq Ramadan


Just another day for our president that loves our enemies and hates our allies: Obama administration lifts travel ban on Tariq Ramadan:
... In 2004, the United States revoked Ramadan's visa. When he applied for a new visa, the application was denied on grounds he had made donations to the Association de Secours Palestinien, or ASP, from 1998 to 2002.

The Bush administration listed ASP as a banned group in 2003, saying it supported terrorism and contributed funds to the Palestinian Islamist group Hamas, an organization the United States said had ties to terrorism.

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton lifted the ban on Ramadan in January.

Facebook Dumps United Muslim Ummah


UMU was a group run by Revolution Muslim and some contributors from a popular terrorist forum. One we know especially well.

Last week they ran a post basically inciting all Muslims that they should attack the Kufr, thats you and me, "in their own lands". That's here. Say like the NYC subway maybe?

click for larger

Here's a portion

Realize that attacking the non-believers in their territories is a collective duty (fardh kifayah) with the consensus of the scholars. However ibn al Musayeb and ibn Shubrumah state that it is a duty (fardh ayn) on each and every individual.

The Imam al Haramain says, ‘I adopt the opinion of the scholars of usool. They stated that Jihad is a mandatory call and must be established according to the ability until none remains in the world but a Muslim or one who has submitted to Muslims. Thus, Jihad is not limited to once a year. It should be done more frequently if possible. What the scholars of fiqh stated is because usually the time spent in preparations for combat limit the ability to wage war to once a year.’

Ibn Qudaamah writes in al-Mugni, ‘The minimum Jihad is once a year, so it is mandatory every year. If there is a need to fight more than once a year, it becomes mandatory on the Muslims to fulfil that need.”

Al Qurtubi states in his Tafseer: “It is mandatory on the Imam to send an army of Muslims to the land of the enemy once every year and the Imam should participate himself in such expeditions. If not, then he should send someone capable whom he trusts, to call them to Islam, keep away their harm, to give victory to the religion of Allah, until they enter Islam or pay jizyah.”

That seems pretty clear to me. Every individual Muslim is obligated to Jihad and there must be at least one attack us and our homeland per year, more if required. Until we the west surrender to Islam, or at least the terrorist's version of it, and pay Jizyah.


I have the rest of the post below the fold.

Special thanks to he who declines hat tips.

Hat Tip: Stable Hand.

Jihad is not mandatory on children, the mentally incapable, women, and the ill. It is mandatory however, on the one-eyed, the one who is suffering from a mild illness such as a headache, a sore tooth, or fever, or the one who has a slight limp. This is in the madhab of Imam Ahmad, and I don’t know any disagreement regarding that and Allah knows best.

It is the consensus of scholars that one cannot participate in Qazw (offensive pursuit of the enemy) without the permission of the parents.

This is all regarding the Jihad, which is Kifayah - a collective duty - (starting war with the non-believers on their territory). But if the enemy enters the Muslim land, or even approaches it and masses on its borders, even if they do not actually enter it, and their armies are double the size of that of the Muslims or less, then Jihad becomes mandatory on each and every individual. Then, the slave leaves without the permission of the master, the woman without the permission of her husband (if she has the strength to fight according to the stronger opinion), the son without the permission of the parents, and the one indebt without the permission of the lender. All of the above stated is the opinion of Imam Malik, Ahmad, and Abu Hanifah (in addition to the madhab of the author which is Shafi’i).

If the enemy ambushes the Muslims in a certain area and they don’t have a chance to assemble together and prepare to fight, then whoever is faced by a nonbeliever, or a group of non-believers, and the Muslim knows that if he surrenders he would be killed, then he must fight. There is no difference in this ruling between a freeman, slave, man, woman, blind, limp, or ill. If there is only the possibility of being killed if surrendered, but would defiantly be killed if he refuses to surrender, then it is allowed to either surrender or fight, but fighting is better. If a woman thinks if she is taken prisoner she would be sexually abused, it is mandatory on her to fight, even if that would lead to her death because if a person is forced to commit adultery or fornication it is not allowed to give in even if to save one’s life.

Now if some of the Muslims in the attacked area go to fight the enemy and they are sufficient in numbers and are capable of fighting the enemy alone, it is still a duty on the rest to help. Al Mawardi states that because it is a Jihad of defense so it remains a duty on every Muslim capable of fighting in that territory.

If the nonbelievers descend on an unpopulated Muslim land that is far away from populated areas there are two opinions in that, and Al Gazali narrates both. The first is that of the Imam al Haramain. He states that it does not become mandatory on Muslims to fight and put their lives in danger to protect such a secluded, unpopulated land. The other opinion, which is the position of the madhab, is that it is mandatory for Muslims to fight for that land. Imam Nawawi says the opinion of the Imam (of al Haramain, al Juwaini) is unacceptable.

How can we - the Muslims - allow the non-Muslims to take away part of the Dar al Islam (Land of Islam) with our ability to protect it?

Al Qurtubi say, ‘If the enemy just comes close to Muslim territory, even without entering it, it becomes mandatory on Muslims to go and meet the enemy in order for the religion of Islam to prevail and gain the upper hand and to humiliate the enemy.’

Al Baghawi states that, ‘It is mandatory on the Muslims who are closest to the invaded land, and is collective duty on the Muslims who are far away.’

Wiki Leak Miscaptions Photos, Misleads Public (UPDATED: Even more deceptions; UPDATE II: Magic Bullet Lady on Dead Photags Camera?)

Bohica22 sends this in. I've done some minor edits to it, but this is mostly just from his email. What comments I've added I've bracketed.


First, I would like to direct your attention to the Collateral Murder Resources page. If you scroll down a little more than half way, you will see what Wikileaks claims are the last two photos taken by Namir Noor-Eldeen. The first of two photos is a standard shot you see from many ‘real’ photo journalists. It’s the Poor Civilians Seen Through Bullet Hole Riddled Glass shot.

Here's the source: http://collateralmurder.com/file/photos/1.jpg

[Actual caption: "Second last photo taken by Namir Noor-Eldeen before he was killed."]

[Rusty: Now, look closely at the image. Look in the background. There are people on the streets and what looks like at least one kid. I've blown it up here.]


[Rusty: This could not possible be one of the last photos taken by the Reuters stringer as the only ones on the street during the video are the insurgents and the Reuters stringers embedded with them.

The streets are completely empty, which is what piqued the helicopter pilots' interest in the first place: what were a group of men doing on the streets during a security sweep in which firefights are taking place?

Update by Stable Hand: The photo captioned above says "Second last photo taken by Namir Noor-Eldeen before he was killed." Reuters released the photo 28 months ago

RNPS PICTURES OF THE YEAR - One of the last pictures taken by Reuters Iraqi photographer Namir Noor-Eldeen before he was killed on July 12, 2007
Not second of last but one of the last. Like, two or three days before.

So, Wiki Leak would have you believe women and children are around while the bullets are firing. They're not. Just, more deception on Wiki Leak's part.

Later we clearly see an AK-47 and an RPG, which means that these are definitely Mahdi Army insurgents, who the US has been battling all morning. The Reuters stringers are embedded with them. The helicopter pilots, understandably, mistake the camera slings for gun slings.]

The second photo it not very dramatic, but the caption is chilling.

Here's the source: http://collateralmurder.com/file/photos/5.jpg

[Actual caption: "Last photo taken by Namir Noor-Eldeen before he was killed."]

The photo appears to have been taken during the first seconds of the attack.

You may have noted that the name of the first photo is 1.jpg and the name of the second photo is 5.jpg, which made me question where did photos 2 through 4 go?

Then I remembered from the CENTCOM released a 15-6 investigation in which they too had released some of Namir’s final photos. These photos do not show distressed civilians through broken window:

d. Photos later recovered from the camera show a US Army HMMWV sitting at an intersection, less than 100 meters away from the camera. The digital time/date stamp on the photo indicates that these photos were the ones taken as the cameraman peered from behind the wall (Exhibit R).

exhibit R.jpg

Now, according to the Army, those THREE photos were taken just moments before the Apache was cleared to fire. This seems to go along with how a Reuters map described the scene of the attack, which was then published by Wikileaks.


So, what do we have here? A bit of a discrepancy. Where did the two women and broken glass come from? Were they in the same area as the attack? Did Namir take that photo in the barely one minute after he took the Humvee photo, but before the Apache opened fire? Is someone lying here? There are many ways this might play out, but I am going to lay out what I see as the most likely scenarios.

1. The Army is lying. The photos of the Humvee and the time stamp claim are pure whitewash. Those photos weren’t taken at the time and place described in the video

2. Wikileaks is lying. Wikileaks is in possession of all of the photos. The three photos named 2,3 and 4 are of the humvee, but Wikileaks withheld it because it goes against the narrative they supplied that the journalists were nowhere near US forces at the time they were attacked.

3. No one is lying. We do not know where Wikileaks received their information. It could be possible that they have never seen the humvee photos. It could be possible that the Army deleted them from the camera’s memory card. Many things are possible, but at this point I trust the Army 15-6 investigation more than I trust the agenda driven, fame seeking Euroweenies or Wikileaks.

Just to add some final confusion to the scene, Wikileaks does publish one last photo.


Wikileaks Caption:"A photo taken by soldiers on Namir Noor-Eldeen camera after he had been killed by the US military."

The name of this photo, 4.jpeg.


Rusty's comments: What could explain the numbering discrepancy is that it's common practice to rename photos once you download them from a camera or flash card. The original photo probably would have been named "DSC" followed by a long string of numbers. If Wiki Leaks follows the practice I use, then #1 - #5 would just have been the order they uploaded the selected photos from the flash card to a designated folder.

But, that doesn't explain the misleading captioning of the photos. The one photo of the two Shia women could not possibly have been taken when Wiki Leak claims.

This fits in with the general sloppiness of the Wiki Leak "investigation" and the way they carefully omit important pieces of information in order to give misleading context to the casual reader.

And context is everything, because depending on the context pictures do lie.

For instance, imagine if you will a picture of a crowd of people at a protest, one of which is holding a placard with a Nazi swastika on it. A caption reading, "Nazi swastika seen at anti-government rally" would lead the reader to believe that there were Nazi sympathizers at the rally.

However, the same picture with a different caption makes all the difference in the world: "Anti-government protesters called the President a fascist and compared his policies to those of Nazi Germany today".

Yes, pictures do lie. The context is everything.

Update by Stable Hand Could this be the same woman as the one above? The "Magic Bullets" lady? The photog, Wissam al-Okaili, was famous for images of people behind broken glass, etc. Most of his work Bullet Lady images magically deleted after this faux bullet incident.

Thanks to Bubbe for bringing this up.

UPDATE: Must see video debunking the Wiki Leak narrative.

And they've got a website: Collateral Murder -- The Wiki Leak Deception

One thing they point out: the van of "good Samaritans" had been spotted earlier .... dropping off insurgents.

Also, the tinfoil hat must be failing: Wiki Leak founder thinks CIA out to get him.

And Fred points out in an email from a couple of days ago (sorry, was meeting Howie and Zionist overlords for business meeting) that one of the dumbest parts of the meme about the reporter killed was that since he and his family were threatened by insurgents they could not possibly have been sympathetic to them.

Dumb because it totally misses the nature of the insurgency as it was in 2007. The insurgency was made up of three distinct separate insurgency movements. One Shia (the Mahdi Army), one religious Sunni (al Qaeda in Iraq, the Islamic Army in Iraq, etc), and one secular but distinctly Sunni (1920s Revolution Brigades, Naqushabandi Sufi Army).

To be a member of one insurgency group was not to be insulated from terrorist threat, but would make you more likely to be threatened by members of the other insurgency groups. Again, in 2007 much of the violence was between Shias targeting Sunnnis and vice versa.

Our position is that the dead photographer was embedded with Shia insurgents of the Mahdi Army. This would only be possible if they knew him and trusted him. And, if true, would also make it more likely -- not less -- that his family would be targeted.

Virtual Extremism

According to this PixelandPolicies article, one won't find a alQaeda Fan page on Facebook.

It's no shock that militant groups around the world make use of mass communication tools like the Internet in order to recruit new faces and keep isolated cells informed of worldwide developments. The power of virtual communication is again in the spotlight after Islamic militant group Al Qaida used Internet message boards to announce their intent to bomb South Africa's World Cup this June.

There is valuable knowledge to be gained by understanding why militant groups - including American-based right-wing militias recently raided by the FBI - are turning to New Media outlets like Facebook, Twitter and free message boards in order to organize and promote their messages. But don't expect to find an Al Qaida fan page on Facebook - in many cases, the social networking of militant organizations is rudimentary and easily destroyed: The perfect cover in an age of increasing anti-terror surveillance.[...]

Two years on[from 2008..ed], Facebook has successfully banished most pro-militant fan pages and groups from their servers, including several groups promoting the work of Hezbollah leader Sayyid Hassan Nasrallah. Only two profiles remain with Nasrallah's name and image. Together, they count under a dozen friends. By all accounts, Facebook is unwilling to allow militant Islam - or any other hate-based group - a forum on their service.

WTF? Facebook unwilling to allow militant Islam/hate groups?
What a load of bs.

Update: United Muslim Ummah 9,578 fans gone. I am shocked!!

UMU Administrators:

Salahuddin Ayyubi Al-Fursan(private) Shepherd of UMU & United Muslim Warriors 15 administrators, 1,556 members

Josh "Abu Talhah Al-Amrikee" Chesser("Political Analyst" for Revolution Muslim) 1,096 friends

Abu Dajjana 933 friends

Lion Bite 44 friends (slacker) another Revolution Muslim member.

Abu Fatih Al-Hijazi 995 friends

That's just one group with it's arms stretched far and wide.

New Arrest and Details On al-Qaeda's NYC Subway bombing Plot

The plot was very similar to the recent attack on the Russian subway and the 7/7 London attacks.

The Gothamist:

A fourth suspect in the foiled plot to blow up crowded subway trains has been arrested in Pakistan and is awaiting extradition to the U.S. to be tried in Brooklyn Federal Court with Adis Medunjanin and Zarein Ahmedzay of Flushing, Queens. Investigators believe the unidentified man helped plan the attack, which was to have been led by Najibullah Zazi, who confessed and pleaded guilty in February. And Zazi's confession has provided chilling new details about the martyrdom plot, which was tentatively planned for September 14th of last year.

Zazi and his two friends from Flushing High School allegedly planned to strap home-made explosives to their chests and enter subway trains on the 1, 2, 3, and 6 lines during rush hour. Once on board, they intended to position themselves in the middle of the subway cars in order to inflict maximum carnage

Indonesian Police Kill Terrorist Involved In Beheadings Of 3 Christian Girls

Yahoo News

BANDA ACEH, Indonesia – Indonesian police raided a home used by suspected terrorists Monday in the far western province of Aceh, fatally shooting a man allegedly involved in the beheadings of three Christian girls.

Two other suspects were arrested at the house in Cot Irie village on the outskirts of Banda Aceh, said Col. Esa Permadi, chief detective of Aceh police. Interrogations of the men led to another raid in which two more suspects were detained, he said.

The men are allegedly members of al-Qaida in Aceh, a splinter of Jemaah Islamiyah, the Southeast Asian offshoot of al-Qaida blamed for deadly bombings in Indonesia in recent years.

Alwaki Tribe Denies Statement, Yemen Forces Know Anwar Awlaki’s Location: Sheik

The Sheik of the Awlaki tribe in Yemen denied that tribal leaders held a meeting regarding Anwar Awlaki or threatened Yemeni citizens as is being widely reported in the Western media.

Reuters reported receiving a faxed statement last week from the Awalki tribe that said, "We warn against cooperating with America to kill Sheikh Anwar al-Awlaki” after the Obama administration announced that it authorized operations to kill or capture Anwar Awlaki, who holds duel Yemeni American citizenship.

News Yemen, a reliable independent news website, interviewed the head of the Awlaki tribe, Sheik bin Fareed, who denied a statement was issued. “We haven’t held any meeting of our tribe regarding Anwar Awalki. What has been published doesn’t reflect our tribe's attitude,” the Sheik said

Sheik bin Fareed said his tribe is loyal to the government, and that they are working to keep their tribe from becoming embroiled in any acts of violence or revenge. “We can’t let government down,” he said.

Sheik bin Fareed added that the responsibility for the arrest of Anwar Awalaki lies with the government’s forces, not the tribe's, saying, “We don’t know where Awlaki is. The government is the one who knows where Anwar Awlaki is and is capable to arrest him, because she is responsible for that.”

Reuters reported the "heavily armed" Awalki tribe warned it would "not remain with arms crossed if a hair of Anwar al-Awlaqi is touched, or if anyone plots or spies against him." The purported statement also said that tribal leaders held a meeting and denounced "the reckless act by the U.S. government to allow the killing of the brave sheikh."

Reuters employs President Saleh’s personal translator as a stringer in Yemen, and its reporting is often biased in favor of the Yemeni government.

Awlaki is noted as al Qaeda’s primary propagandist to the English speaking world. In a 2010 audio, Awlaki urged American Muslims to commit jihad against the US. Awlaki has been in contact with several English speaking losers who later committed violent acts, including Nidal Hassan, Farouk Abdulmatallab and Sharif Mobley. Awlaki is relatively unknown in Yemen. His father is one of President Saleh's cronies and previously held the posts of Agriculture Minister and head of Sana’a University. Yemeni authorities have described Anwar Awlaki as a preacher not a terrorist.

Awlaki is thought to have morphed from a pamphleteer to an operational al Qaeda cultist after his release from jail in 2007. The non-governmental al Tagheer reported that Awlaki returned to Shabwa and “started preaching to people in the mosque every Friday and began to recognize a group of young people and meet them.” USS Cole bomber Fahd al Quso lives in the same area of Shabwa. Al Quso was convicted in Yemeni court and sentenced to ten years in jail. The 2000 terror attack on the USS Cole in the port of Aden killed 17 US service members and wounded 49. Al Quso was released after three years in prison, despite having escaped once.

On Dec. 24, Yemeni warplanes, using U.S. intelligence help, bombed a meeting of senior al-Qaida figures at al Quso’s farm. Awlaki and other al-Qaida top leaders left the meeting hours before the strike, giving rise to speculation that they were tipped off by compromised elements within the Saleh regime.

Yemen was aptly described by the LA Times as “a surreal world of spin, lies and propaganda (that) makes one wonder if reality exists at all in this cruel and beautiful land.” The Yemeni government regularly issues outright lies or manipulates the news. The Saleh regime reported the death of al Qaeda cult member Ammar Al Waeli in January. He was later spotted recruiting for the Al Qaeda cult in the war torn northern Sa’ada governorate. Al Qaeda leader Qasim al Reimi was also reported dead, three times, although he is not.

Report: Anti-Muslim Incidents Doubled Last Year

Did I say muslim? I meant anti-Semitic.


For the first time in the report's history, incidents carried out by Muslims eclipsed those by right-wing extremists in cases where the perpetrator was identified, the report said.

Incidents in Britain shot up to 374 from 112 in 2008, and to 195 from 50 in France.

The United States registered only a slight increase, according to the study[?]

Moshe Kantor, president of the European Jewish Congress, which sponsors the report, said that the rise of anti-Semitic sentiment in Western Europe can be blamed on forces outside the region.

"This new phenomenon is financed and organized by pro-Islamic, pro-terrorist organizations and states," Kantor said.

The university issued its report on the eve of Israel's annual memorial day for the 6 million Jews killed in the Nazi Holocaust.

Islam, the only religion if you leave it, the sentence is death.

Revolution Muslims Zach Chesser Message To The People Of Poland

Zachary "Abu Talhah al-Amrikee" Chesser spouting off again. Umm Zach, has Obama converted to Islam yet?

This is good news, because Poland is a country which has soldiers in Afghanistan. Rather than the mujahideen killing these kuffar, Allah has done it for them in a manner which is easier.

To the people of Poland,

As your President's soul enters a ditch from Hellfire, in sha'a Allah, along with his advisors and his family, you now have an oppurtunity to rethink your failing operations in Afghanistan.

The only thing you can accomplish in Afghanistan is the oppression of an impoverished people. You can kill innocents and prolong the lifespan of the single most corrupt government on the face of the Earth so long as Allah allows you, but while you do this your citizens will die and your country will remain a fair target in the eyes of the Muslims.

Take a lesson from Spain, who tasted death and realized that it was something which they wanted to run far away from. And know that what happened in Spain does not even compare to three days of what your ally America inflicted upon the Muslims before 9/11.

Globe & Mail

Two Italian doctors are among nine people detained in an alleged plot to kill an Afghan provincial governor, officials said Saturday.

Their detentions follow the discovery of suicide bomb vests, hand grenades, pistols and explosives in a hospital storeroom in Lashkar Gah, the capital of the southern province of Helmand, a spokesman for the provincial government said.

Police were tipped off about a plot to kill Helmand's governor during a future visit to the hospital, spokesman Daud Ahmadi said.

Mine Disaster: Westboro Fag Group Met With Opposition In Charleston

h/t to Dr Eviler, in comments, who gave link to this:

The mine disaster happened about an hour and 15 minutes from my location. This has been one of the better responses to the Westboro nutjobs. The community supporting the miners' families came out and counter protested because the families could not.
Hats off to the counter protesters, the miners families have enough sorrow in their lives without having to see these hateful non human Phelps assmaggots. All hope was lost for the families of 4 missing miners when their bodies were found deep in the mine. You are all in our thoughts and prayers.


Hundreds of protesters from the mountain state worked to cover up the Westboro group's signs that said "God Hates West Virginia" and "Thank God For Dead Miners."

Brittany Bailey, whose father is a miner from Pineville, said "Just because they passed away doesn't mean God is punishing us. God is love. He's love, not hate. This is stupid."

Some even did a spontaneous dance to "Country Roads" to take attention away from the group.[Video at above link]

Found this at YouTube:

Expect Phelps idiots to sue because the good people of Charleston covered up their hateful signs or something.

Wojciech Seweryn is listed among the passengers on the Web site of Poland's president. Polish officials have said all on board died.
Sadly, his father died in the Katyln massacre.

Leftist/Terrorist Lovers Wanting To See GW Bush Charged With War Crimes Can Watch Blessing's "When We Go Upon The Sea"

InterAct Theatre Company- WHEN WE GO UPON THE SEA.png


Conan McCarty plays former U.S. President George W. Bush in the April 9-May 9 Philadelphia world premiere of Lee Blessing's When We Go Upon the Sea, which imagines the leader charged with international war crimes.

InterAct Theatre Company continues its long-time relationship with Pulitzer Prize- and Tony-nominated playwright Blessing with the new work, which will open April 14.

Commissioned by InterAct in 2008, When We Go Upon the Sea is set in a high-end hotel room at The Hague, and imagines Bush on the eve of his trial for international war crimes. "Tended to by an inscrutable Dutch butler and an alluring masseuse, the President embarks on a long night of drinking, joking, and ruminating, taking the audience through a deep exploration of how we regard our leaders - loving them, fearing them, unintentionally deifying them," according to InterAct notes.

Islamic State of Iraq Claims Embassy Bombings

USA Today:

BAGHDAD (AP) — An al-Qaeda front group claimed Friday that it carried out triple suicide bombings outside foreign embassies, underscoring U.S. and Iraqi fears the terror group is attempting to make a comeback.

t also said "all diplomatic corps, embassies and international organizations" dealing with the Iraqi government are "legitimate targets." The group denied involvement with another attack this week, when bombs ripped through apartment buildings and a market, killing at least 50 people, in mostly Shiite areas of Baghdad.

Iraqi security officials, however, blamed al-Qaeda for both bombings, as well as execution-style shootings of villagers one week ago as gunmen went door-to-door in a Sunni area just south of Baghdad. About 120 people were killed in all three attacks.

We have the google translation of the complete statements below the fold.

Update: The terrorist group with whom the united states and Iraq is at war also has a Facebook group. How sweet of facebook. Hosting terror while banning Grandy for giving al-Qaeda a hard time. Wouldn't want to offend murderous terrorists now would we?

We are starting this wave announce clearly: that all the diplomatic corps and embassies and international political organizations that deal with the Government of the Green Zone, are legitimate targets to us from, and helping to install the elements of the apostate government acts or permit support in any way from any quarter, will accelerate development of such side at the top of the list of goals elected, and that the Mujahideen would not hesitate to hit her, wherever located and the degree of fortification, and happy Pay attention to anyone else.

Alliance in Yemen Drafts National Rescue Plan

Yemen’s National Dialog Committee published an English language summary of its National Salvation Plan yesterday. The document is available at the Yemen Vision website. The National Dialog Committee (NDC) is an important Yemeni civil society coalition dedicated to creating a forum and consensus on a peaceful route to popular empowerment.

The National Dialog Committee is comprised of members of the opposition party alliance, the Joint Meeting Parties (JMP) along with independents, some of the ruling General People’s Congress party members and prominent social figures including political leaders, tribal sheiks, businessmen and intellectuals. It is headed by Mr. Mohammed Salem Basandwah, an adviser to President Ali Abdullah Saleh. The JMP’s Hamid Al-Ahmer is its Secretary General. The group is dedicated to building a national consensus on the issues facing Yemen and implementing solutions through peaceful means.

Yemen is a hyper-political state where benefit accrues from proximity to President Saleh, his family and his tribesmen who control much of the military and security forces, the economy and political system. The high degree of cronyism means that state bureaucracies are dysfunctional and corrupt. Basic services are nearly absent and the black market is thriving. Yemen’s water shortage gave rise to water barons who thwart implementation of water strategies. Land theft by officials is overt and further centralizes the economy. The rule of law is absent; the powerful flout the law and the weak are subject to retaliatory verdicts. Yemeni children are the second most malnourished globally and half of Yemenis are under 24 years old.

The JMP faces criticism on the street as “the other face of the regime,” interested in retaining power, corrupt, disconnected from the citizenry, and restricting itself to complaining without opposing due to the Saleh government’s brutality. The political party system is dominated by historical personalities, rebuffing the energy of Yemen’s youthful population. However some members of the JMP have made dedicated efforts to expand the horizons of hope in Yemen, often with tragic consequences.

Years of Reform Efforts Blocked

The opposition Joint Meeting Parties contains ideologically diverse political parties joined together in a pragmatic quest, the rescue of Yemen. The architect of the rapprochement between the Yemeni Socialist Party and the Islamic Reform Grouping, Jarallah Omar, was assassinated in 2002 by a fundamentalist who, authorities claim, was working alone.

In 2005, it became obvious that economic reform was vital to the survival of the nation. Depleting oil coupled with rampant corruption and abuse of power had distorted Yemen’s economy to the point where only a handful benefited from natural resources and foreign aid, unemployment was staggering and development stalled. But economic reform was contingent on political reform, the opposition parties found, as powerful interests continually blocked efforts to rationalize the economy. The JMP released a reform initiative calling for the establishment of a Parliamentary system of governance.

They were soon to learn that if economic reform is contingent on political reform, then political reform is contingent on electoral reform. In the 2006 elections, members of the ruling party had overwhelming advantage in local elections, and President Saleh won his re-election handily against his rival, Faisal bin Shamlan. The JMP agreed not to dispute the election’s results in exchange for an agreement with the GPC to overhaul the electoral system. Recommendations from the European Union’s Mission to Yemen were to be the starting point.

Following the election, Salah’s regime rounded up activists who campaigned for the opposition candidate, imprisoning some and firing others from civil service jobs. Electoral reform stalled when the JMP and GPC could not agree on the terms or scope of negotiations. The JMP also insisted on the release of political prisoners prior to discussions.

The Vision of Salvation

Yemen has since seen two brutal wars in northern Sa’ada and an exploding anti-government sentiment in the south provinces that eventually morphed into an independence movement, largely due to the states brutal response to the peaceful protests.

With electoral reform stalled in Yemen, and civil unrest threatening to drive the state to failure, the National Dialog Committee formed a broad coalition among predominant social groups to devise a plan for “National Salvation.” The grouping finds the central issue is “the personalization of the state” that has devolved into a clan-based structure dedicated to retaining power and acquiring personal wealth. In the absence of a functional parliament the NDC’s strategy for Yemen relies on a conference representing the people of Yemen and their communities.

The NDC noted the “blocking horizons of any change through free and fair elections, obstructing the principle of the peaceful transfer of power, destruction of the plural political system, diminishing the democratic project and civic live pillars, seizure of public freedoms and rights, strangulation of free press, generation and fueling of violence, fanaticism, hatred and all forms of political conflicts, tribal feuds and battles and local violence.”

The committee found both the Saada War and Southern protest movement arose from the centralization of the state. The economic crisis ruthlessly crushing the vast majority of Yemenis is a product of the Saleh regime which dealt with natural resources and national wealth as “gain to be shared among the oligarchic group, their relatives and affiliates.”

The report continues, “The hand of corruption was unleashed and the mafia of illegal interests dominated. Hence, corruption, unfortunately, became a regular practice to manage the country and a tool to monopolize, own and secure power as well as inheriting it to the sons thereafter. The development process and plans became merely tools to seize national wealth and an element for political propaganda.” The deterioration of education, health services, private investment and the squandering of donor aid accompanied the downward spiral.

The coalition suggests treating the hotspots of instability as a first step toward reversing the collapse of the Yemeni state recommending the immediate cessation of state violence, campaigns of arrest and the release of political prisoners. The NDC invited the northern rebels, southern separatists and opposition abroad as well as the ruling authority to a national conference, much to the consternation of the GPC which has labeled all of its opposition as unpatriotic apostates.

Not everyone accepts the Committee as a legitimate effort. General Nassar al Nuba, Head of the Military Retired Association which initiated the southern protests in 2007, said in an emailed statement that the JMP’s efforts to organize protests in solidarity with besieged southerners is a ploy cooked in the “kitchen of influential people who seized the fortunes and wealth of the south with a view to occupancy opinion external public about what is going in the land of the south and attempt to confuse the issue, the South, which imposed itself on the table of international conferences and has become a just cause and political distinction.”

Equal Opportunity for All

With regard to growing calls for southern independence the NDC sees the need to “remove the impacts of 1994 war through a comprehensive national settlement leading to resolving the southern cause with its righteous and political dimensions fairly and comprehensively putting the south in its natural position as party in the national equation and as a real partner in power and wealth in a national partnership state. This is a critical entry point for a comprehensive national solution for the aggravating situation under which the vast majority of people in all parts of the country live.” It’s easier said than done.

Among several strategies to accomplish the decentralization of the state power are the prohibition of family members of the president or prime minister to assume any of the nation’s top posts including in the judiciary, military and intelligence. Senior state officials should be banned from any commercial, financial or industrial activities, and from buying or selling state properties, and from bidding for state contracts.

The establishment of a Parliamentary system is one option for decentralization but the group does not exclude consideration of proposals by other parties to the dialog. Reform of the judiciary, the electoral system and civil service are other essential components. Free and fair elections are a fundamental requirement to entrench pluralism and the peaceful transfer of power.

Among the economic and social reforms included in the proposal is the empowerment of women, a topic that receives a one line treatment. Yemen is ranked in last place globally in terms of gender equality by the World Economic Forum. In the highly gender segregated society, women have social, physical and legal obstacles in efforts to support their children economically, gain an education or participate politically. About half of Yemeni women marry before age 15, usually to an older man, and 70% of women are illiterate, resulting in perpetual dependency.

Obstacles to consensus

Obstacles to developing a national consensus are many; among the foremost is state domination of broadcast media. The NDC finds that implementation of the strategy includes both communicating the national crises to the citizenry, and creating mechanism for dialog and consensus building.

Furthermore over 70% of Yemenis live in rural communities, and half of those have no electricity, meaning they are out of touch with each other and the nation’s elite. Parliamentary representatives are often tribal Sheiks, reinforcing an unresponsive patriarchal system. Many MP’s do not have an office in their districts or make regular visits to assess the concerns of their constituencies. Local councils are another arm of the Saleh regime.

The NDC recognizes the need to develop mechanisms of “qualitative communications, intellectual and media interaction to expand the scope of support for the salvation, change and national development and reforms solutions reaching to a stage where a national community-based framework is formed with peoples’ support encompassing all elements of the Yemeni society to work as a guardian for the state from collapse.”

LiveLeak: Response To WikiLeaks "Collateral Murder" Video

A video by long time Jawa friend DMartyr summarizing Rusty's take on the Wikileakds video. (the embed seems to only be working part of the time so I added the above link to the vid)

So why aren't we running a copy on Youtube? Well actually we tried but we didn't last long.

click for larger

Copyright? Spanish Broadcasting System?

Interesting, what do they care? We don't see any content that is owned by them or is not fair use.

DMartyr also wanted to make the following point

I've been comparing the clip to this video:


(I warn you, it is EXTREMELY graphic - I haven't been able to watch it more than once.)

These are the type people our troops are facing. The media ignores the behavior of the insurgents, yet ambiguous clips like the wikileaks makes headline news.

Very frustrating.

Frustrating indeed.


Black Five:

A source has sent me the following photos with the notation that Reuters is not to be trusted around insurgents. These show a rather extensive video editing/production set up found by U.S./Coalition in 2004 in/near Fallujah. Those who know, know that at that time no one was in that area that was not a part of or fully approved by the insurgents.

Update by Howie: We tried to modify our version to see if it would pass Jihadtube's copyright claim by Spanish Broadcasting, no go.


Are you able to view it? I changed the picture but it still says "This video contains content from Spanish Broadcasting System, who has blocked it on copyright grounds."

I am using the wikileaks video, which is widely available at YouTube to those smearing our troops, but it says copyright infringement on mine.

The only thing I'm using beyond that video is one image from Jawa Report (the picture of the Humvee the Reuters photographer took) and a picture of a press flak jacket (thats the pic I changed)

I can send you the original .wmv file if you want to try from your end.

Hmm why does Jihadtube seem to be booting a video that's actually leaked DOD property whenever the narrative tries to point out the flaws in Wikileaks narrative. And what copyright claim does Spanish Broadcasting System have over it? And why are they not enforcing it system wide?

Suspicious no?

Update: 04/10: Youtube has restored the video.

Fifth Anniversary of Jeffrey Ake’s Abduction by Iraqi Terrorists

howieJeffreyakehostagesmall.jpgOn April 11, 2005, Jeffrey Ake of LaPorte, Indiana was abducted by terrorists while working on a private reconstruction project in Iraq. At this time there is no information about Mr. Ake’s whereabouts or status. After five years his wife and four children have resigned themselves to the fact that their husband and father will probably never return. Liliana Ake, Mr. Ake’s wife said, “We have waited hopefully for five years, but sadly there has been no word about Jeff. We are extremely grateful for the outpouring of support, prayers and help from our family, friends and many strangers during the past five years. We appreciate all the efforts that the different branches of the United States government have made in searching for Jeff. We hope that the sacrifices that Jeff and so
many others have made to bring stability, normalcy and freedom to Iraq will continue to benefit the Iraqi people. We ask everyone to join us in a prayer for peace on April 11th and to remember that we are all created in God’s image. May God bless all those who have been so generous to us throughout this ordeal.”

The Friends of Jeff, a group of Mr. Ake’s friends from Downers Grove North High
School, have come together to provide support for Liliana Ake and the children. A website, www.jeffake.com has been established to provide an easy way for people to donate funds to help Jeff’s family. “When people hear about Jeff and Lilly’s story, they always ask if there is anything they can do to help. We have established the Jeff Ake Family Trust to continue to provide financial support for Lilly and the children,” remarked David Dlesk, one of the Friends of Jeff. “It has been wonderful to see the generous response of so many people. We encourage everyone to reach out and help someone who may be having difficulties as a result of the turmoil in Iraq and Afghanistan, whether it is the family of a hostage, a member of the military or one of the many civilians who is helping to rebuild these countries.”

Jawa Report Jeffrey Ake Archive.

Press release continues below the fold.

In April of 2005, Mr. Ake was in Iraq installing a bottled water line manufactured by his company, Equipment Express. He was abducted directly from the plant where he was working. On a video released shortly after his abduction, Mr. Ake was shown being held by armed gunmen. His abductors contacted the family shortly after he was taken, but there have been no further communications. Due to Mr. Ake’s prolonged absence, the company, which had been the family’s sole source of income and benefits, was not able to continue.

13 Year Old Bride Dies in Yemen

Conservative Muslimas protest against raising age of consent in Yemen as Un-Islamic


A 13-year-old Yemeni girl who was forced into marriage died five days after her wedding when she suffered a rupture in her sex organs and hemorrhaging, a local rights organization said Thursday.

Ilham Mahdi al Assi died last Friday in a hospital in Yemen's Hajja province, the Shaqaeq Arab Forum for Human Rights said in a statement quoting a medical report.

She was wedded the previous Monday in a traditional arrangement known as a "swap marriage," in which the brother of the bride also married the sister of the groom, it said.

Rescuing A Potential Nuke From The Chile Earthquake

Wow, just wow.

Andrew Bieniawski was in bed when the earthquake struck. On Feb. 26, Bieniawski, the assistant deputy administrator for the U.S. National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA), had arrived in Santiago, Chile, to join a group of scientists and nuclear engineers on a top-secret mission to remove a potential nuclear bomb from the country.

Around 40 lb. (18 kg) of highly enriched uranium (HEU) — with enough latent energy to destroy a portion of a city — had already been inventoried, secured and made ready for transport to a highly secure facility in the U.S. Running ahead of schedule, Bieniawski had taken his team out for dinner with Chilean nuclear agency officials before heading to bed. Then the big one hit.[ More...]

Netanyahu Pulls Out of Obi One's Nuclear Summit

Deputy Israeli Prime Minister Dan Meridor will stand in for Netanyahu.


Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has canceled a planned trip to Washington next week for President Barack Obama’s 47-country nuclear security summit conference.

He made the decision after learning Egypt and Turkey intended to raise the issue of Israel’s presumed nuclear arsenal at the conference, a senior government official said on Friday.

Who in the hell would want to be ambushed by Islamists?
"This conference is about nuclear terrorism," Netanyahu told reporters on Wednesday. "And I'm not concerned that anyone will think that Israel is a terrorist regime. Everybody knows a terrorist and rogue regime when they see one, and believe me they see quite a few -- around Israel."
Meanwhile, Liz Cheney had this to say regarding Obi One's relationship with Israel:
She[Liz Cheney] criticized the administration for the "shabby reception" given Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu when he visited Washington recently, which she deemed "disgraceful."

"President Obama is playing a reckless game if he continues down the path of diminishing the United States' ties to Israel," she said, deeming the world safer when there is "no daylight" between the two countries.

The Guardian is now calling Netanyahu's no show a victory for Arab pressures

Update: Arabs: we weren't gonna bring Israel nuke stuff up, honest.

A high-level Arab source tells Fox News that Arab countries had no intention of raising Israel's undisclosed nuclear program at next week's Nuclear Security Summit in Washington.

The diplomat, who is involved in the conference asked not to be named, said this was a way for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to dodge President Obama and avoid committing to peace talks.

BS and you know it high level Arab person.

The Slight of Hand at Wiki Leak and the Missing 20 Minutes of Video

This is what Wiki Leaks is calling the "full video" of the incident that they describe as the "murder" of "civilians killed in Baghdad". Video that is causing outrage in Europe, Islamic countries, and among the American Left. The "full video" is nearly 40 minutes long.

Besides being dishonest about this being footage of mass "murder" and of those killed being "civilians", Wiki Leak is also being dishonest about this being the "full video". It's not. The so-called "full video" is missing 20 minutes of footage.

The editors of Wiki Leak are one part magician and one part defense lawyer. Like a good defense lawyer they are careful never to lie outright; just convenient omissions coupled with spin which make innocent parties look guilty, and the guilty innocent.

Like a polished magician they want you to look at one hand -- the journalists, the casual manner in which the insurgents are talking to one another, the brutality of death in war, the wounded children -- so that your eyes are distracted from the hand which holds that which is important in order for the illusion to be complete -- the insurgent with an AK-47, the insurgent with a loaded RPG, the insurgent carrying a spare RPG round, firefights happening near the scene, the convoy which the Reuters cameraman is aiming his lens while surrounded by insurgents, the expressions of anger by the soldiers that insurgents had brought children to the area, the rescue of the children and their evacuation to two US bases for treatment.

But among the many glaring omissions in their perverse and evil slight of hand, one sticks out more than anything else: 20 minutes of missing video.

What was on the video? Here's a key bit from a sworn statement about that days firefights which might shed some light:

While team was providing security for H26 at the first engagement area H26 informed the team that they were recieving small arms fire from the S/SW and wanted to team to recon the area for AIF. CZ18 then located 5xAIF with AK-47's and 1xRPG. Team was given clearance to engage by H26. I then observed a child and some other noncombatants in the vicinity of the AIF so decided to hold off on the engagement until the non-combatants were clear. After the non-combatants were clear CZ18 the engaged the AIF with 20x30mm. There were 2 possible WIA and I observed the individuals run into a large multistory building. The team then searched the area for more AIF. CZ19 reported a red SUV that has possible AIF in it and team followed and observed the vehicle but could not get PID on any weapons. The team then returned to the engagement area.
This is not shown on the video, but the next segment in the statement is where the video seems to picks up -- the engagement of Mahdi Army terrorists holed up in a building with 3 hellfire missiles:
Upon arrivai I observed building was a 4 story building that looked abandoned and half finished and possibly still under construction. We then asked H26 for clearance to engage the building with hellfire missiles. H26 granted the team clearance to fire. The team proceeded to engage the building with 3 hellfire missiles. CZ18 fired 1xK2 and 1xN missiles. CZ19 fired 1xN missile. There were approximately 10 AIF KIA during this engagement. Team then did BHO with CZ03/04 because the team needed to refuel at the FARP.
When children were observed near AIF (anti-Iraqi Forces) they chose to hold fire --> Not shown on video.

A vehicle that might have carried AIF in it was not fired on --> Not shown on video.

Like the 18 minutes of audio "accidentally" erased from the Nixon tapes, I find it awfully convenient that the so-called "full 40 minute video" that Wiki Leak provides also has a 20 minute gap. A 20 minute gap that would seem to run counter to the narrative of cowboy soldiers shooting at everything and every one in the neighborhood, even children.

So, is Wiki Leak lying about this being all the video they received? It matters little, because it's obvious that even the "full video" was edited to paint the US and its soldiers in the worst possible light.

If Wiki Leak didn't do it, then somebody did. That somebody has an axe to grind. And it may explain why the DOD can no longer find the original video in its archives.

Thanks to Kevin for much of this.

UPDATE: Greyhawk has a great debunking post here.

Obi One Administration: Visa's For Grandson Of Muslim Brotherhood Founder But Not For Israeli Nuclear Scientists

Rev Jeremiah Wright will be proud of the one, he learned his lessons well.

Roger L Simon

The Obama administration is now denying U.S. visas to Israeli scientists who work at that nation’s Dimona nuclear reactor. This startling reversal of traditional policy was reported April 7, 2010, in the Israeli website/newspaper NRG/Maariv

This could be yet another flashpoint in the increasingly sensitive relations between the administration, the American Jewish community, and Israel. The revelation in Maariv came only a day before the arrival in New York of Tariq Ramadan — controversial grandson of Muslim Brotherhood founder Hassan al Banna — whose visa was reportedly championed by Secretary of State Clinton. Yesterday as well, new rules disavowing the term “Islamic radicalism” were announced by Secretary of Defense Gates.

Shakes head.

For The Idiots Who Still Say There Was no RPG -- UPDATED: Wiki Leak as Left Wing Propaganda

What RPG? I don't see an RPG??? The shape is unmistakable.

Thanks to Ryno.

UPDATE: Bob Owens follows up yesterday's debunking of the Wiki Leak propaganda with this excellent work. In it he follows up and debunks Wiki Leak's assertion that the two wounded children were not treated by the US military. In fact, they were rushed to a FOB for treatment and then to a military hospital before they were taken to the Iraqi hospital.

And this wasn't classified information. It was publicly available, making the false assertion made by Wiki Leak against the US military all the more despicable.

Here's a teaser:

We’ve already established that the critics at WikiLeaks would have us question whether or not pilots in a combat zone should fire upon identified enemy forces based upon their body language and posture. WIkiLeaks also seems not at all concerned about the verified presence of weapons among those killed, and they also ignore the fact that militants use camera equipment as part of their propaganda war. Even more troubling, they go out of their way to erroneously suggest that American forces treated children wounded in the engagement with callousness. This suggests that the WikiLeaks release, “Collateral Murder,” was not intended to shed light upon the incident, but instead was carefully constructed to elicit outrage and fury.

The organization happens to be attempting to raise funds now. Claiming the need for an operating budget of $600,000, the group states they have only been able to raise $370,000. The implication seems both sad and obvious. Desperate for both attention and funding, WikiLeaks carefully constructed a propaganda video designed to raise their profile and increase donations.

Read the rest.

Al Qaeda in Yemen, unwanted nomads or essential nucleus?

The announcement that al Qaeda in Yemen’s (AQIY) leadership escaped to Somalia in recent weeks is not the end of Yemen’s terrorism woes, but may instead signal the Yemeni al Qaeda group is taking a leading regional role among al Qaeda factions from Saudi Arabia to Somalia and beyond.

The flight of al Qaeda's leadership is at best a temporary move and at worst may be an indication of continuing collusion between Yemeni President Saleh and terrorists seeking to harm the US.

Al Qaeda in Yemen dubbed itself "Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula" in January 2009 after it integrated Saudi al Qaeda figures driven to Yemen by the kingdom’s harsh counter-terror measures. Last month Saudi Arabia announced the arrest of over 100 al Qaeda operatives including 51 Yemenis. Explosive belts were seized. Saudi authorities reported the group had been planning attacks on oil and security targets inside the kingdom on orders from leaders in Yemen, indicating the group’s continued focus on and capacity within Saudi Arabia. Al Qaeda’s movement from Yemen to Somalia is much different than its earlier shift from Saudi Arabia to Yemen.

By air or by sea?
The relative ease with which these wanted leaders exited Yemen is an indication of the weakness of Yemen’s effort in combating the group. One group of about 15 AQIY operatives including prominent leaders departed the al Mukalla port in early March, Yemeni sources reported. The exiled AQIY group issued orders from Somalia to cells in Yemen to cease activities, communication and meetings until the end of June by when they expect Yemeni security efforts to relax.

Mukallah is a primary debarkation point for illegal weapons flooding into Somalia. The UN monitoring group on the Somali arms embargo found that the lack of regular Coast Guard patrols in al Mukalla “means that arms traffic continues unabated.” The port is under the control of the Republican Guard, headed by President Saleh’s son, and the Central Security, headed by his nephew and is notorious as a drug smuggling hub as well.

Somali sources tell a different story. An al Qaeda group arrived in Somalia from Yemen via plane disguised as humanitarian workers.
Somalia officials said 12 Yemeni commanders arrived in the last two weeks of March and were carrying cash to aid the al Qaeda linked al Shabab’s recruiting efforts. Somali Treasury Minister Abdirahman Omar Osman said that AQIY’s purpose in Somalia was to “assess the situation to see if al Qaeda may move its biggest military bases to southern Somalia since they are facing a lot of pressure in Afghanistan and Iraq."

The designation of AQIY as al Qaeda Central’s forward scouts and terror tutors in Somalia indicates the predominance of the group among all regional affiliates, a function of the comfort level that the core al Qaeda has with its Yemeni affiliate.

Hybred al Qaeda
Al Qaeda in Yemen is unique among terror groups due to its enmeshment with the state. The Yemeni government portrayed al Qaeda’s exodus as an indication of its success in cracking down on the terror group, but President Saleh’s regime has a long history of appeasement and facilitation of al Qaeda. Aspects of the security, military and intelligence forces have long been co-opted by al Qaeda operatives, sympathizers and veterans.

The Yemeni al Qaeda and Al Qaeda Central, specifically bin Laden and Zawaheri, have long standing ties with President Saleh. Bin Laden notoriously advised his minions in Afghanistan to surrender, not fight, if they were captured in Yemen. Ayman al Zawaheri was reportedly in and out of Yemen through the 1990's and again in 2001. Saleh released Khalid bin Attash from jail at the request of bin Laden in 1999, the 9/11 commission found. Attash later went on to a leading role in the terror attack on the USS Cole.

State resources comprise an essential part of al Qaeda in Yemen’s infrastructure. Conversely, the Yemeni regime has used al Qaeda as mercenaries in the Sa’ada Wars (2004-2010) and trains them in state run camps.

While President Saleh may lack both the will and capacity to combat al Qaeda, Yemeni tribes resent the intrusion of al Qaeda, their foreign ideology and norms, and have created an inhospitable environment in many areas. A study by Sarah Phillips at the Carnegie Foundation found that "Al-Qaeda’s goal of establishing an international caliphate, propensity for extreme violence against civilians, and hard-line religious ideology conflict with local norms and weaken al-Qaeda’s appeal to the Yemeni people, including the tribes."

A new deal?
The relocation may be the fruition of an earlier offer by President Saleh bribing the group to leave Yemen. The Telegraph reported that in January 2009, Yemen offered to free all imprisoned al-Qaeda militants if the group agreed to leave the country. President Saleh also offered money to the AQIY’s leadership. Yemen released over 100 jihaddists as a good will gesture to al Qaeda and then defended the release internationally as good governance. According to a former government official, Tariq al Fadhli, the men were al Qaeda members and the move was part of the broader negotiation with al Qaeda.

The duplicity of the Yemeni government is notorious, extensive and sometime comical. Authorities announced the death, three times, of AQIY leader Qasim al Reimi although he is alive. A March report by the Yemeni weekly Attagammua indicated that Ammar al Waeli, reported killed by the authorities is fact in Saada, alive and well and recruiting for al Qaeda. Al Waeli was listed on a US 2002 seeking information bulletin, implicated in the 2007 murder of eight Spanish tourists and two Yemeni guides in Mareb and declared dead by Yemeni authorities on January 15, 2010.

This level of duplicity is long standing. In 2004, Yemen reported to the US that Aden Abyan Army leader Khalidabdul Nabi was killed in a firefight when in reality he had been captured and let go.

ChicagoGOP + Boobies = Instant Link

gopboobiesjawasmall.JPGMaybe NSFW discussion at Chicago GOP:

I am extremely excited that women today enjoy the entire spectrum of freedoms that men do. As sanctified the 19th amendment that has bestowed upon women their rightful divine right of equality. Nevertheless, the dishonorable way in which some women derive financial gain from inappropriate disclosure of their sexual conquests is alarming.

Worse off this behavior is rewarded and glorified by the media as they are portrayed more as victims! The New York Times has reported today that Oprah Winfrey has arranged for the first televised interview with Rielle Hunter, the woman with whom John Edwards admitted to having an extramarital affair.

Does everything that is sacred has to be sacrileged in the most obscene way possible?Without complete disregard for the irreversible consequences of negative behavior that this poses on our youth . Not to mention on John Edwards' children.

The discussion in comments there seem to be mostly about if boobies posted at the top of the story are appropriate. Jawa Report will come down on the side of we like boobies as usual.

More interesting is the double standard by which the media has treated the sexes during all these "scandals". The men are vilified while the other woman (women) are treated as if their choice to pursue married men were holy.

Is it just me or are both are equally wrong?

Obama Declares War On...College Internships

Well, private sector internships, that is. If you want to volunteer for GOVERNMENT, however, that's great and you'll be rewarded handsomely. If you want to volunteer to work for the private sector and get real-world experience and education prior to joining the work force (or even decide that a field might not be right for you), that's bad because, er, it "violates labor laws" or something.

Private sector bad. Government good. Two legs bad. Four legs good. The Obama way, kiddies. Do what he says or pay the consequences.

You still have "freedom." As long as it's the freedom to work for Him and the Democrats' all-government-all-the-time agenda.

59 Seconds of Crucial Reuters "Murder" Video

Over at Wiki Leak they wanted to add "context" to the video of an alleged "murder" of two Reuters photographers by pointing them out over and over again to make it seem obvious that they were non-combatants. Well, here's some context they didn't want to give.

Clearly from the helicopter's point of view the camera lense appeared to be an RPG. Especially given that the guy with the RPG had just ducked behind the building only seconds before the photog appears pointing something -- his long lens -- at a Humvee.

The more I think about this the more likely it seems that the Reuters stringer was there to photograph an impending attack on the convoy which is just off screen in the video but which can be clearly seen on the film recovered from the Reuters camera.

Thanks to Ace Tomato for putting this together.

UPDATE: Also from the comments:

Julian Assange, a WikiLeaks editor, acknowledged to Fox News in an interview Tuesday evening that "it's likely some of the individuals seen in the video were carrying weapons."

Assange said his suspicions about the weapons were so strong that a draft version of the video they produced made specific reference to the AK-47s and RPGs. Ultimately, Assange said, WikiLeaks became "unsure" about the weapons. He claimed the RPG could have been a camera tripod, so editors decided not to point it out.

Remember, it's not the crime it's the cover up.

Thanks to RecklessImp.

Diplomat Attempts to Blow Up US Airliner***PIC OF SUSPECT ADDED***

UPDATE: Now news reports are saying the guy was just smoking in the bathroom and, when questioned, popped off to the Air Marshal that he wasn't smoking, just lighting a shoe bomb.

Which doesn't make him a terrorist, just an asshole. If true, I hope they bill Qatar for the cost of scrambling the jets.

But, if I understand the source of this version of events it is another Qatari diplomat. So, they have a vested interest in constructing an alternative narrative ... or maybe just downplay how big of an asshole this guy really is.


A Qatari man with a diplomatic passport has attempted to blow up a flight from Washington, DC to Denver reports Gabe from AOSHQ.

If he had diplomatic immunity does that mean he gets to bypass certain security procedures such as having his shoes checked for explosives?

Check back at Ace's for updates.

Thanks to AllahP.

UPDATE: ABC is calling this a "shoe bomb" attempt. The would-be terrorist is named Mohammed al Modadi, and he is a vice consul. He has full diplomatic immunity.

Remember the classic line delivered by Danny Glover to the South Africa diplomat in Lethal Weapon 2? Right before he shot the guy? Yeah, I hope one of the Air Marshals says that.

Also, I just noticed that the ABC report has the Air Marshals on the flight restraining him. Did they thwart the attempt or was this another failed detonation ala the Christmas Day underwear bomber?

Of course, the usual suspects come to mind, namely Anwar al-Awlaki and al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP).

The latest reports out of Yemens, where AQAP is headquartered, are that the leadership of the group have fled across the straights to Somalia where they have safe harbor. It's the kind of report that's plausible, but since it comes from the Yemeni government itself it's also self-serving and therefore suspect. But what if there is merit to the claim that AQAP leaders have fled a now more openly hostile Yemen? Why should they confine themselves to the dusty flea infested streets of Southern Somalia when a nice air conditioned apartment in Doha would suit their purposes just as well?

UPDATE: My usual instinct to Google the guy has turned up nothing on him. Any one have a photo or any background?

UPDATE from Barbarossa. Here's a pic of the dick (guy on the right; original is here):

War Crimes in Yemen

As we have been discussing since the outbreak of the sixth Sa'ada war and "Operation Scorched Earth" in August, the Yemeni military pretty much bombed the hell out of everything including schools, villages, markets, refugees, mosques and water tanks. Amnesty International recently obtained photos of the destruction, an accomplishment considering the region has been closed off since 2004. Until Amnesty posts the photos, here's some photos and witness testimony from the second round of war in 2005: click here and here and here and here and here.

Amnesty International via News Yemen The scale of the devastation caused by Yemeni and Saudi Arabian aerial bombardments of the northern Yemeni region of Sa’ada has been revealed in hundreds of images obtained by Amnesty International.

The pictures, given to Amnesty International by an independent source and taken in March 2010 in and around the town of al-Nadir, show buildings destroyed between August 2009 and February 2010 during the latest in a series of clashes between Yemeni forces and supporters of a Shi’a cleric.

Among the damaged or destroyed civilian buildings photographed are market places, mosques, petrol stations, small businesses, a primary school, a power plant, a health centre – and dozens of houses and residential buildings....

International humanitarian law forbids the targeting of civilian objects, as well as indiscriminate and disproportionate attacks on civilians, during conflicts. If such attacks are carried out deliberately, they are war crimes.

President Saleh's war crimes also extent to southern Yemen where security forces have been shooting protesters in the head since 2007. Hundreds were killed and the region is under seige. There are hundreds of political prisoners in Yemen, mostly reformists, critics and journalists. For more on Yemen, see Jane.

WTF? U.S. military weighs renewing probe over Iraq video

They've already investigated this incident twice. The second investigation was an investigation into the investigation. Both time the soldiers were cleared and the recommendation was for journalists to, and I'm paraphrasing here, "stop hanging around with terrorists."

Now they may re-re-investigate just because a bunch of barking lunatics cry "murder" when the evidence clearly showed that the US soldiers involved in the killing were acting in good faith?

Three options. One, political appointees in the Pentagon are, as some suspected, as left-wing as MoveOn.org. Two, the meatheads in the JAG corps actually believed half the bullshit they learned in law school from professors like Barrack Obama. Three, this is one of those "we'll investigate this to shut the pencil necks up because we all know that the evidence will clear these soldiers yet again" deals.

I'm hoping that it's three.

Leaked emails show UC-Irvine Muslim student group planned disruption of Israeli ambassador's speech, despite repeated public denials

I've asked it before, and I'll ask it again: what kind of religion is this where lying and thuggery are seen as marks of devotion? What's next? Child marriage? Oh...

From the Investigative Project: "The MSU Plot to Silence Israel's Ambassador"

Despite claims to the contrary, internal emails from the University of California, Irvine's Muslim Student Union (MSU) show that the group orchestrated the repeated disruptions of a speech given on campus by Israeli ambassador Michael Oren February 8.

A copy of the email exchanges was sent anonymously to school and local law enforcement officials, who are investigating whether students violated conduct codes or criminal laws, respectively, in deliberately disrupting an invited guest speaker at the school. The emails include a "game plan," which details the disruption plan down to where the student disruptors would sit, how they would communicate with each other via text messaging, and how to act if campus police began to arrest students.

The Investigative Project on Terrorism also received a copy of the packet sent to UCI officials.

During his speech, Oren was interrupted more than a dozen times by students who stood up and shouted that he was a murderer and a war criminal. He left the stage for about 20 minutes before order was restored and he was able to continue his remarks.

Prior to the speech, MSU officials told UCI administrators that they were not planning any disruptions before the speech. Police arrested 11 students during the event, eight from UC Irvine and three from UC Riverside.

Afterward, numerous press accounts included MSU denials that the disruptions were orchestrated...

As the now public emails make clear, these denials were an attempt to cover up the truth about MSU's behind-the-scenes attempt to shout down a visiting diplomat. A decision to disrupt the event had been made at an MSU board meeting days before the speech, the records show.

"We've already discussed the different options in the GA (general assembly) meeting and we took a vote," a February 4 email to the MSU board said. "So now that we have voted on one method of action, we all go through this together, insha'Allah ta'ala together as one MSU … one Ummah." [Emphasis original]

Meeting minutes also included in the packet show the ultimate objective was to stop Oren from being heard. "[O]ur goal should be that he knows that he cant (sic) just go to a campus and say whatever he wants." Members were advised to "push the envelope," in order to "realize our role as the MSU of UCIrvine."

A week later, as MSU members prepared to staff an information table on campus, Secretary Sumayya Fatima Hussaini sent an email with talking points about how to respond to questions about the disruption at the speech:

"It was NOT an MSU event. This is probably the most important thing to remember to say. The 11 acted on their own accord, and it was not organized or put on by MSU. If asked about MSU stance, MSU DID NOT ORGANIZE THE PROTEST, but MSU does condemn the university" for sponsoring the Oren speech." [Emphasis original]

Further, Hussaini wrote, MSU members should voice support for the 11 arrested students, but try to steer the conversation away from the controversy and "always try and bring the discussion back to Islam."...

Salahi should speak with one of her clients about his own language. In preparing the plan, MSU President Mohamed Abdelgany said he expected Oren to try to ignore the outbursts. "And if he starts just reacting to us, then the program will have essentially been hijacked."

Muslim engaged in hijacking. Who would have guessed?

Yes, read the whole thing. And let's hope that the UC-Irvine administration responds appropriately to these disclosures.

Afghanistan: Metallica "Enter Sandman"

Well sorta:

The US army are reportedly using music by Metallica and Thin Lizzy to fight the Taliban in Afghanistan[...]

An unnamed sergeant told The AP that Taliban supporters "hate" the music, and that it is also "motivating" for US marines.

Tea Party Protesters Burn American Flag

Just another indication of the anger, rage, hate, bitterness and anti-government sentiment endemic in these rallies.


Oops. Did I say tea party protestors? I meant leftwingnut socialists, Communists, 9-11 Truthers, Israel-haters, America-haters, Greens, Hamas supporters and Democrats.

Sorry about that. So hard to tell the difference sometimes, isn't it?

Greenpeace Writer: 'We know who you are. We know where you live. We know where you work.'

Increasingly frustrated now that their Anthropogenic Global Warming Scam has been exposed, Greenpeace activists are going all medieval, as BC at The Anti-Idiotarian Rottweiller explains:

After initially allowing one of their limp-wristed Glow Bull Wormers, Gene Hashmi, to post a de facto threat against anyone who doesn’t drink Algore’s Klimate KoolAid®, GreenPiss got dog-piled in their comments section and decided to move it here, in a weak-assed attempt to put a bit of distance between themselves and the idiot author and trying to build a post facto wall of “plausible deniability“.
Here's Hashmi's peaceful, Buddha-like, non-violent threat:
If you’re one of those who have spent their lives undermining progressive climate legislation, bankrolling junk science, fueling spurious debates around false solutions, and cattle-prodding democratically-elected governments into submission, then hear this:

We know who you are. We know where you live. We know where you work.

And we be many, but you be few.

Why was the threat moved off of Greenpeace's official site? It was done, as they say, "...in the interest of transparency."
