Video: 100 Egyptian Christians Arrested in Benghazi, Some Tortured & Killed
A video report from an Egyptian website claims that 100 Coptic Christians from Egypt have been arrested for the "crime" of fulfilling their Christian duty and spreading the gospel. Some reports claim that the video shows "Islamist elements" holding the Christian prisoners, but the news report itself claims that it was officials of the Libyan government. Or as the Google translation puts it, "Libyan government accusing them of proselytizing".
Given that the line between government officials and Islamist militias is a hazy one in parts of Libya -- especially Benghazi, where they were "arrested" -- it's not clear to me which one is accurate.
But would it be out of character for the Libyans to arrest Christians for this "crime"? Earlier this month four foreigners, including an American, were nicked for proselytizing. The penalty of which can be as severe as death.
In any case, the report also claims that the Christians have been tortured by those holding them and that some of them were killed while trying to escape. And lest you think these men were in Libya as Christians, the report also suggests that they were in the country to work as contractors, many of them in professional positions.
Here's the video. The men on the floor with the shaved heads are the captive Christians. Notice the Christian literature being shown as evidence of the "crime".
Hey Mama, Obama, He Got The Mo' Jama, Talkin' About Indoctrination
Remember when kids used to sing "America the Beautiful" and "My Country, 'Tis of Thee"? Now they sing praises to Dear Leader...
Something in My Pants Just Moved
Science fiction meets science reality as this video proves that you can, in fact, 3D print an AR-15 lower receiver and that it does, in fact, work.
Go ahead, ban "assault rifles". We'll just make our own.
Question for readers: I know 3-D printers are still pretty expensive, but what about the idea of pooling money and buying a single printer as a group? Are there any groups out there doing this?
Syria Demands UN Stop Israel from Seeking Oil In Israel
Syria has condemned Israel’s search for oil in the Golan as a “flagrant violation” of United Nations resolutions and has called on the UN to intervene, AFP reports[...]Never a dull moment when it comes to Islamists.
Israel had originally hoped to give the Golan back to Syria in exchange for peace, but its offer was rejected with the Khartoum Resolution of 1967, in which Arab leaders vowed not to recognize or make peace with Israel.

With Sequester Looming, Eric Holder Suddenly Concerned About Homegrown Islamic Terrorism Despite DHS Efforts To Downplay Threats
The Department of Homeland Security refuses to even mention "Islam" and "terrorism" in the same sentence. It's public relations department has worked hard to diminish the thought that Islamic terrorists are the threat they once were.
But that was before Obama's sequester threatened his Administration's radical agenda to bankrupt America. Now, Eric Holder has many sleepless nights worrying about al Qaeda:
America now confronts a very different terrorist threat than it did four years ago, according to Holder. While al Qaeda's central leadership has been diminished, the group is more "widespread" geographically—and the threat of homegrown terrorists in the U.S. now rivals that of plots hatched overseas, Holder told ABC News.
"Core al Qaeda doesn't have the capacity that it once did, but it's metastasized in a number of ways. We now worry about the nodes of al Qaeda—al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, al Qaeda now in Africa, al Qaeda in Iraq," Holder said. "The threat is more widespread in terms of where those people are, where those significant people are. That's how it's different now."
The nation's top law enforcer worries that Americans could become "complacent" about the threat of terrorism, even as the FBI has thwarted not only international plots, but homegrown terrorists that Holder called "a very serious threat."
I guess Holder didn't get the memo. Obama destroyed al Qaeda.
Suddenly It's Becoming Clear
Why the media has been such staunch supporters of Barack Obama.
Of course, some in the media do love the President and would do anything to defend and protect him. Like MSNBC.
But everyone couldn't be on the take.
Bob Woodward isn’t the only person who’s received threats for airing the Obama administration’s dirty laundry. It seems anyone is a potential target of the White House these days – even former senior members of the Clinton administration.
A day after Woodward’s claim that a senior White House official had told him he would “regret” writing a column criticizing President Obama’s stance on the sequester, Lanny Davis, a longtime close advisor to President Bill Clinton, told WMAL’s Mornings on the Mall Thursday he had received similar threats for newspaper columns he had written about Obama in the Washington Times.
I'm wondering how many others will come forward? I suspect an avalanche may be on the way.
UPDATE: Ron Fournier at the National Journal says he, too, received threats after critical articles about the Obama Administration.
My question is, what is so interesting out the window at 1:45?

Secretary of State Kerry's First Act Interfere in Middle Eastern Conflict
ROME—Secretary of State John Kerry said the U.S. is preparing for the first time to directly provide nonlethal assistance, including food rations and medical supplies, to rebel Syrian fighters as part of a bid to change President Bashar al-Assad's "calculations" and expedite his removal from office.The irony is Kerry and Obama have continually argued against these types of actions by the US in the past. The similarity to 1980's Afghanistan is pretty apparent.
Washington's top diplomat also announced at an international conference in Italy on Thursday that the U.S. will provide $60 million in assistance to Syria's main political opposition group, the Syrian Opposition Coalition, to help it unify politically and better distribute humanitarian supplies and public services to areas of Syria that have been liberated from Mr. Assad's rule.
Arms are already flowing to Syria from Libya and other nations like Saudi Arabia so the non-lethal nature of the aid is less relevant. What is relevant is that this aid will most likely be co-opted by al-Nusra and other allies of al-Qaeda in their campaign to win Syrian hearts and minds by lending civilian aid. al-Nusra is already the most effective group at delivering civilian aid in occupied areas.
I have little faith that any promises made to cut al-Qaeda aligned groups out of this process can or will be kept.
We might as well just write a check to Ayman al-Zawahiri.

Bob Woodward: A 'Very Senior' White House Person Warned Me I'd 'Regret' What I'm Doing
Bob Woodward said this evening on CNN that a "very senior person" at the White House warned him in an email that he would "regret doing this," the same day he has continued to slam President Barack Obama over the looming forced cuts known as the sequester.[More..]Video via Ace:
It's the Chicago way as one doesn't question The One.
As Ace tweeted:
Now we've got a WH telling reporters they'll "regret" printing the truth and the Juiceboxers say "I see this every day from the O network."Yes, some in the MFM are 'rushing' to protect their Messiah.
Update: Soros to the rescue: Media Matters' Boehlert Mocks Bob Woodward's Age.
For the record, Woodward is only 69.Poor poor ObamaMedia is sad right now:
What's especially interesting about Boehlert's attack on the poor, sad, funny Woodward who doesn't understand sequester, is that just 10 days ago Media Matters was applauding Woodward's reporting on, yes, sequester.[More...]
Their love for Obama hurts:

Jihad Jane Accomplice Pleads Guilty, On the Way to US
Well, this is surprising:
An Algerian at the center of the so-called Jihad Jane conspiracy unexpectedly pleaded guilty during an Irish proceeding on Wednesday that may hasten his extradition to the United States on terrorism charges, a court official said.Damache was Colleen "Jihad Jane" LaRose's contact in Ireland. She stayed with Damache as she stewed over her inability to kill the blasphemous cartoonist Lars Vilks. Colleen's friend from Colorado, "Jihad Jamie" Paulin-Ramirez's flew to Ireland and married Damache on the day she met him, but later regretted the decision.
Ali Damache, who has lived in Ireland for a decade, pleaded guilty in court to a single count of sending a menacing message by telephone to an American Muslim activist, according to a court official in Waterford, Ireland.
It's not clear exactly how involved Damache was in the plot, but Colleen has suggested to reporters that although the plot was partially Damache's idea, that she was mad at him for not being urgent enough in his zeal to kill Vilks.
Interestingly, as soon as Damache plead guilty he was released from custody for time served. Immediately following his release, he was re-arrested on an extradition warrant and will now be sent to the US to stand trial for the more serious terrorism charge.
So, consider this your cornhole warning Mr. Damache.
Bob Woodward: Obama Is Showing 'A Kind Of Madness'..
Bob Woodward has gone from calling Obama a liar to mad.
The Washington Post's Bob Woodward ripped into President Barack Obama on "Morning Joe" today, saying he's exhibiting a "kind of madness I haven't seen in a long time" for a decision not to deploy an aircraft carrier to the Persian Gulf because of budget concerns.[More...]From liar to mad, well, not in the mad scientist kinda way. Mad in I'm your King and I will do what I want to get my way without admitting what I am saying is a lie sorta mad kinda way.
I forgot, Bronco Bama told me not to say anything about this. I hope Newport News person named Tim doesn't see this post.

A Legal Immigrant And True American Schools Gun Control Politicians On The 2nd Amendment
The documentation from Homeland Security HSCEMS-12-R-00011 stating that an AR-15 style rifle with a 30 round magazine is "suitable for personal defense" can be viewed HERE. (Also in Section C in the downloadable .pdfs on the right.)
Transcript below the fold.
My name is Henson Ong. Forgive me, English is not my first language. I am a legal immigrant and an American by choice.
Thank you for giving me this opportunity to express my opinion and give my testimony in opposition to the majority of the proposed bills which do nothing to deter future crimes.
Gun control does not work. Your own history is re pleat with high school rifle teams, and boy scout [rifle] merit badges. You could buy rifles at hardware stores. You could mail order them to your home. Your country was awash in readily available firearms and ammunition and yet in your past you did not have mass school shootings. Other people have already expressed the question. What changed?
It was not that the availability of guns suddenly increased, it was actually decreased. What was changed was societal decay. If gun control actually did work, Washington DC and Chicago would be the safest cities in your nation but it is no. They have the toughest gun laws and the highest crime and murder rates.
Now some people have called the AR-15 a weapon of mass killing. It turns out that there are a few government agencies which disagree with that characterization. The department of Homeland Security has stated that a rifle chambered inn 5.56 NATO with a 30 round magazine is suitable for personal defense. HSCEMS-1212-00011 solicitation 4, Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency.
Now who needs an Ar-15 with 30 round magazines? That question has also been brought up. I would like to put forward that had the Koreans in the LA Riots not had AR-15s and AK-47s with 30 round magazines, and Rugers 30s, their businesses would have been burned to the ground like all of the other businesses in their neighborhood. Theirs stood because they stood their ground.
I would also put forward the conjecture that, had the 10,000 students in Tienanmen square not been unarmed, things may not have resulted in so many of them disappearing.
In your own laws, United States vs Miller 309US174 1939, it was made clear that the types of firearms protected by the Second Amendment were those specifically useful and common for military use in defense of the state. I would like to note that the state is not the government, the state is the people.
In Lewis VS United States 1980, it is stated that the Second Amendment guarantees no right to keep and bear a firearms that does not have some reasonable relationship to the preservation and efficiency of a well regulated militia. It has nothing to do with hunting.
The militia debates in the convention shows plainly enough that it is composed of all males physically capable of acting in concert for common defense; And further that ordinarily, when called for service, these men were to appear, bearing arms supplied by themselves, and of a kind in use at the time. The RA-15 is the most common and popular rifle in America at this time.
I would like to wrap up with a statement from Judge Alex Kozinski in Silveira v. Lockyer 2003:"My excellent colleges have forgotten these bitter lessons of history. The prospect of tyranny may not grab the headlines the way vivid stories of gun crime usually do. But few saw the Third Reich coming until it was too late. The Second Amendment is a doomsday provision; One designed only for those exceptionally rare circumstances when all other rights have failed. A free people can only afford to make this mistake once."
Obama's Got This Thing Called OFA
Last weekend, the New York Times revealed that President Obama’s campaign apparatus, Organizing for Action (OFA), has reinvented itself as a 501c 4 tax-exempt non-profit advocacy group offering access to the president in return for a large donation. “Giving or raising $500,000 or more puts donors on a national advisory board for Mr. Obama’s group and the privilege of attending quarterly meetings with the president, along with other meetings at the White House,” reports the Times.Just ask Robin Kelly.
A multimillion-dollar ad blitz by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg to stop an NRA-backed House candidate in Illinois paid off Tuesday night, as local official Robin Kelly crushed more than a dozen Democratic candidates vying to replace disgraced former Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr.
Bloomberg and gun control proponents seized on the results as evidence of momentum in their push to enact President Barack Obama’s gun control package. The mayor will take that message to Washington Wednesday in meetings with Vice President Joe Biden, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), according to Bloomberg’s public schedule.
Texas School Teacher Told Students To Call 9/11 Hijackers "Freedom Fighters"
G. K. Chesterton said, "The true soldier fights not because he hates what is in front of him, but because he loves what is behind him."
The same school responsible for this:
...has a teacher telling students to call the 9/11 hijackers "freedom fighters."
Her explanation was that people who sacrifice their lives for a Holy War are "freedom fighters."
I would have to point out the difference - a "freedom fighter" sacrifices his life to protect others. A terrorist sacrifices his life to destroy others. It is not a difficult concept.
In the teacher's defense, some students claim she seemed to be very uncomfortable with the new curriculum. So, the school board is more to blame.
An Advanced Placement World Geography teacher at a Texas high school who encouraged students to dress in Islamic clothing also instructed them to refer to the 9-11 hijackers not as terrorists – but as “freedom fighters,” according to students who were in the class.
Students at Lumberton High School were also told to stop referring to the Holocaust as Genocide – instead they were told to use the term “ethnic cleansing.”

Dr. Zuhdi Jasser: 'Our Worst Fears Are Being Seen'..
Dr Jasser spoke about his recent trip to Saudi Arabia and Egypt.
Via Radical Islam:
Dr Jasser is #1 on CAIR, liberal, domestic dhimmis hate list.
For instance, this comment on the video by YouTube user "Joe Mukas
Zuhdi Jasser is like the few Jews who were serving under Hitler's army or the few blacks who hang the confederate flag in their house .Dr Jasser believes in separation of 'Mosque and State', doesn't hate Jews or Christians which is a no no in CAIR/Muslim Brotherhood sockpuppet 'Joe Mukas' world.
Zuhdi Jasser is considered a traitor in the Muslim community. Zuhdi's real supporters are the right wing fox news watching Whites. Zuhdi has no support among mainstream Muslims even in America let alone in Middle East.

Awesome: Libyan Arms 4 Sale to al Qaeda in Sinai
The weapons that helped Libyan rebels oust dictator Muammar Qaddafi are turning up for sale at clandestine auctions in Egypt’s lawless Sinai Desert, where shadowy buyers purchase firearms for Al Qaeda and Hamas operatives....Thanks to Mean Kitteh.
The hosts of these auctions aren’t just doing it for the money, the source said. Al Qaeda-linked jihadists are becoming more and more influential in the region, and playing a large role in who shows up for the auctions and who leaves with the bombs, anti-tank missiles, rocket-propelled grenades and automatic weapons that are peddled there.

Government Threatens to Shut Down Business Over $144 in Late Taxes (that weren't actually late)
Yesterday my wife and I got served by an agent of the state's tax fraud investigation unit. The agent went to my wife's business and accused her of not filing her taxes. He then served her with an order that if she didn't pay the taxes within five days the state would force her to close her business.
How much was she accused of owing? $144.
The government wanted to shut down a business that has four full time employees, and half a dozen part time employees over .... $144!?!?!?
But here's the thing, my wife had paid the taxes and our bookkeeper had the receipts to prove it.
The agent then confessed that they were way behind in recording receipts right now so there was no real way to know who had paid and who hadn't at this point. But it was still up to us to prove we had paid the taxes in question. We were guilty until proven innocent.
I don't blame the pencil-necked bean counter for this. He's just doing his job. He's just doing what all mindless bureaucrats do, a mere cog of the vast government machine do.
The real problem here is government itself. It is simply the nature of the beast. They need money, and you have it.
Whenever any person in government claims they need more government in order to help business, just remember that no matter how good their intentions are that it is simply not in the nature of the government to help.
Sure, my wife's business actually does directly benefit from certain government goodies she gets. But at what price? A government so large and with so few limits to its power that it can, on the whim of the misfiling of a piece of paper, presume you guilty until proven innocent, confiscate your property, and put people out of work.
We're from the government and we're here to help, remains the scariest phrase in the English language.

Obama Astroturfing Twitter
So it appears the Netroots netroots are showing?.
The Other McCain: Finally, at least one Republican is getting tech-savvy:Is anyone at all shocked by this, after all they don't call Obama's right hand man the King of Astroturf for nothing.
A Texas Republican on Monday said President Obama’s gun control campaign is a fraud based on fake messages over Twitter.
Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Texas) accused Obama of trying to make support for his position look stronger than it really is by flooding Twitter with messages from people who don’t exist. . . .Stockman said that in response to Obama’s call for people to tweet their congressman in support of gun control legislation, he received just 16 tweets. But he said all of these messages were identical, and that a closer look at them revealed that only six were from real people.
“The other 10 are fake, computer-generated spambots,” his office said in a press release. As evidence, he said these 10 tweets use default graphics and names, and have not engaged in any interaction with other people. Two of the tweets were sent at nearly the same time, and both follow just one person: Brad Schenck, Obama’s former digital strategist.
Noted Hippie & Anti Semite Calls Jawa Report Homophobic Homos
It seems Tim has an issue with Rusty's takedown of his last hit piece on Jawa Report.
Salem News: I assumed the site was a man's pro-gay publication and it didn't make sense that they would have a beef with us, turns out the site's operator is instead suffering from a he-man complex. They went on, paragraph after paragraph, defending their obviously short-sighted goals.This all stems from the case of one Ziyad Yaghi, in which Salem News Whatever maintains that Ziyad Yaghi is an innocent victim[Indictment]. We were specifically accused by Salem News of being spies under contract of the the US government because we had up a few images from Ziyad Yaghi's facebook account.
Our writer Siraj Davis in Palestine called the group out for its one-sided anti-Islam slant. I agree with him completely. His article is about the shoddy and laughable (unless you are him) conviction of a young man named Ziyad Yaghi whose mother is fighting for his freedom. Yahgi is convicted under the NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act) which sound-minded conservatives despise along with the rest of us. This is the Obama law that allows Americans to be detained without charges, it is some of the worst, most anti-American legislation ever passed in this country.
The accusation was that we were part of some grand conspiracy to infiltrate innocent Muslims facebook accounts and then work with the government to jail these innocent Muslims. The alleged proof was that we posted images from Yaghi's allegedly private facebook account. Rusty responded to these accusations here.
If ur a munafiq (hypocrite) I am a kill you
So when we confronted Siraj Davis' article with facts it seems to have pissed off his editor Tim King who then responds to our alleged racism and name calling with his own brand of Anti-Semitism, homophobic slurs and name calling.
I'd really not paid any attention to this issue. But number one, if you publish things on the internet its public, you never know who's looking. We're not interested in Muslims, but lets say you post stuff saying "I'll kill you" on the internet, that might get our attention.
It might also coincidentally get the attention of law enforcement. And in the case of Ziyad Yaghi that's exactly what happened, he got a lot more attention than he'd hoped for. Our only regret is that we were not involved in this case. Besides apparently we were friends. Freedom of association you know.
Next lets take the NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act). Tim once called George W. Bush (and all Christian evangelicals) a white supremacist too.
George W. Bush’s support for fundamentalist Christianity has been linked to his having a “Christian supremacist vision”So that must make Barack Obama doubly racist since his policy is perceived by King as being even more extreme than Bush's policy.
Also he's a follower of the 9/11 truther movement and appears on the leftist Russia Today to spout his Anti-American views.
His articles are popular on Antisemitic blogs that coin terms like Judeofascism.com. Because being called Anti-Semetic is really just a tactic to stop you from hating Jews. Its the Zionists who are the real Anti-Semites, preventing the Jews from living free and being well treated as only a proper Islamic Kalif or Hitler could, right?
He also has a problem with the Gaza phauxtography reporting here.
So if this is the kind of person we really piss off, we must be doing it right.
72 Is The New 30
Human longevity has improved so rapidly over the past century that 72 is the new 30, scientists say.
Researchers at the Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research in Rostock, Germany, said progress in lowering the odds of death at all ages has been so rapid since 1900 that life expectancy has risen faster than it did in the previous 200 millennia since modern man began to evolve from hominid species.
In response to this new study, the Obama Administration announced it will increase the retirement age for Social Security from 65 to 140.

Remember How Grandpa Used To Walk 10 Miles Through Snow, Uphill Both Ways, Just To Get To And From Work?
Those times are here again.
Art Bouvier, the owner of a New Orleans-inspired restaurant located in Indianapolis saw a young man trudging through the early morning snow and ice last week. The teen stopped to ask Bouvier — who owns Papa Roux Po Boys and Cajun Food– how much further it might be to his final destination and was told it was six to seven miles.
“He thanked me and continued on,” Bouvier, who also goes by Papa, wrote of the encounter in a now viral Facebook post. “He could have asked me for money for a bus. In fact I quite expected him to. He didn’t. He just started walking.”
To a local news station, Fox 59, Bouvier added that the teen later said he wouldn’t have money for a bus ride until he got a job.
Bouvier continued in his post that 15 minutes later he was in the car and told his wife to pull over when he spotted the teen — still walking.
That’s when he found out the 18-year-old named Jhaqueil Reagan had intended to walk a full 10 miles for a job interview. The Bouviers gave Reagan a ride the rest of the distance — but that’s not all.
“I’m thinking to myself, here’s a kid walking almost 10 miles in the ice and slush and snow for the hope of a job at minimum wage,” Bouvier told Fox 59. “That’s the kind of story your parents used to tell, my parents used to tell, up both ways in the snow.”
Bouvier hired the kid. I don't blame him. That's the type of employee that makes any business a success, when the government isn't trying to kill it.
"Hezbollah Fighters Killed In Syria Will Go To Hell" Says Former Leader

Former Hezbollah Secretary General Sheikh Sobhi Tfaili criticized the participation of Hezbollah fighters in the Syrian conflict, saying those who are killed in Syria will “go to hell” and are not considered martyrs.h/t Mean Kitteh
During a televised interview this week, Tfaili “confirmed” that Hezbollah is fighting alongside the regime in Syria.
“Hezbollah members who kill children, terrorize people and destroy houses in Syria will not be martyrs and will end up in hell,” he said.
Tfaili added that Shiites in Syria do not need anyone to stand up for them[...]
Back That Ass Up
NY Daily News
Omar Hammami, one of the most notorious Americans to join an Al Qaeda affiliate, is already on the FBI’s most-wanted terrorist list. Now, he’s accused of a different sort of crime — plagiarizing his rap lyrics.
Hammami, who now goes by the name Abu Mansour al-Amriki (The American), released a series of rap songs over the past few years that are now being attributed to another American-born Islamic extremist. And the accusations are apparently coming from his former best buds at Al Shabab, the terrorist organization that helped launch Hammami to international fame.In a document acquired by Wired.com, an alleged former colleague named Abu Hamza Al-Muhajir, calls Abu Mansour out on his “Nasheeds,” or Islamic vocal music.
“The Jihadi rap Nasheeds, ‘send me a cruise’ and ‘make Jihad with me’, that are often erroneously attributed to Abu Mansour are the work of another Muhajir — another American Mujahid,” Al-Muhajir claims in the 17-page PDF. “But, of course, Abu Mansour would never say otherwise since the Nasheeds ‘perfect’ and complement his projected self-image.”

20 Years Later: Bombing Of World Trade Center
We [FBI..ed] later learned from Ramzi Yousef that his Trade Center plot was far more sinister. He wanted the bomb to topple one tower, with the collapsing debris knocking down the second. The attack turned out to be something of a deadly dress rehearsal for 9/11; with the help of Yousef’s uncle Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, al Qaeda would later return to realize Yousef’s nightmarish vision.Egypt's Morsi still wants the mastermind behind the bombing, the Blind Sheikh(aka Omar Abdel Rahman), released for humanitarian reasons.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the families in remembrance of their loved ones.
A noontime ceremony is planned to honor the six people who died in the 1993 blast in an underground garage below one of the twin towers. More than 1,000 people were injured.
The attack was the first dramatic demonstration that "terrorism is theater and New York is the biggest stage," said Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly.
The ceremony was being held at the 9/11 memorial that honors more than 2,700 people who died in the 2001 terrorist attack at the World Trade Center.
A moment of silence will be observed at 12:18 p.m., the time when a truck bomb was detonated below the north tower
Six Islamic extremists were convicted of carrying out the bombing, including mastermind Ramzi Yousef.

Israel: Rocket Hits Outskirts Of Ashkelon
Luckily, no one was injured.
Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades claimed responsibility and wanted to kill innocent Israelis because a Pali died in a Israel prison:
A Grad rocket fired from Gaza Tuesday morning landed on the outskirts of Ashkelon. No injuries were reported[...]Someone is itching for a Third Intifada, just sayin.
A security source said that an initial examination of the rocket's remnants showed that it was an 8" projectile with an improved mid-to-long range.
The al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades, Fatah's military wing, claimed responsibility for the fire.
In a statement carried by the Palestinian news agency Maan, the Gaza-based terror group said that the fire was its response to the death of Palestinian security prisoner Arafat Jaradat in Megiddo Prison on Saturday.
"Liberty will be achieved through sacrifice. We must fight the enemy with all means necessary. The resistance will continue," the statement said[More...]
In the latest violence there, Israeli troops shot and wounded five Palestinians during confrontations with protesters in the Bethlehem area on Monday and a 15-year-old boy was in critical condition.
The death in disputed circumstances of Arafat Jaradat, buried in a funeral in the Hebron area attended by thousands on Monday, and a hunger strike by four other Palestinian inmates, have stoked tensions ahead of a planned visit next month by US President Barack Obama.

But the tech wizards at OFA forgot one important rule in today's Internet world: Register all the iterations of your website address before someone else does.Bwahahahahaha

As Obama's OFA made its debut, no one in his purportedly Internet-savvy campaign had obtained the corresponding .com, .net, .org or .us sites, nor did OFA register other names that are close to its official one, as is the sensible practice. In the case of the .net address, a fellow named Derek Bovard had already registered the .net address by the time Obama's team took notice.
Bovard has routed his new site to the homepage of the National Rifle Association.
So, whenever anyone goes to www.organizingforaction.net they end up seeing the homepage of the NRA.
Naturally, Obama and his fellow community organizers were furious.
Carney certainly hurried away, no?
YouTube: 'Hostage' Video Of 7 Members Of French Family Abducted In Cameroon
Update: Full Video Added
[video gone but I have one below the fold]
Such bravery by the jihadi threatening to kill this family if their demands aren't met. Terrorizing their children, gawd.
A video appeared on YouTube Monday of seven kidnapped members of a French family with their abductors, who claimed to be from Islamist extremist group Boko Haram and demanded the release of prisoners.I'm unsure if this is indeed Boko Haram due to their 'flag' in the background. Could be supporters of the terror group and have their "own" flag.
The video represented the first images of the family to emerge since their abduction in Cameroon on February 19.
The kidnappers, claiming to be from the Nigerian group Boko Haram, say they carried out the kidnapping in part due to France's "war against Islam," apparently a reference to French military action in Mali.
The more than three-minute video shows the family, including four children, held in an undisclosed location, surrounded by at least three of the abductors whose faces are hidden.
A source close to the family confirmed their identities to AFP. It was not clear when the video was made.
"If you want us to release these French citizens, quickly release all our women you are detaining," one of the abductors says in Arabic, addressing Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan.
Update: Full video below the fold:
Thanks to @meankitteh1
Prayers that this family is released, unharmed.
Update: Birbal Dhar has a point, the jihadi didn't blur the woman's face. Although, I believe this is a splinter group supporting Boko Haram. The flag is definitely NOT Boko Haram's.

Bangladeshi Muslims Riot, Demand More Bloggers Be Executed
The religion of peace™.
Just a week after Islamists hacked to death a blogger accused of insulting Islam, thousands of angry Muslims took to the street in protest. They were not protesting the murder of the blogger. They were demanding more bloggers be put to death:
Parts of the capital Dhaka were turned into a battlefield as thousands of protesters attacked police with bricks and sticks in front of the national mosque. Officers there retaliated with rubber bullets and tear gas.
The country's 12 Islamic parties called the protests after Friday prayers in nearly half a million mosques nationwide, demanding the execution of bloggers whom they say blasphemed Islam and the Prophet Mohammed.
But don't worry. Moderate Muslims assure us only a teeny, tiny minority of Muslims misunderstands Islam and use it as an excuse to commit violence.

Four Somali Immigrants Convicted Of Supporting Al Shabaab
A federal jury in San Diego on Friday convicted four Somali immigrants — including an imam from a local mosque — of conspiring to funnel money to a terrorist group in their native country.Revolution Muslims Jesse Morton and Zach Chesser's hint for these 4:
After a three-week trial and three days of deliberations, the jury convicted the four men of conspiring to raise and send money to Somalia's al-Shabaab. The men coordinated fundraising efforts and sent nearly $9,000 to al-Shabaab between 2007 and 2008, prosecutors said[...]
Those convicted Friday include 40-year-old Mohamed Mohamed Mohamud, who prosecutors said used his connections as a popular imam at a mosque in San Diego's City Heights neighborhood to raise money for the group.
The other defendants were two San Diego taxi drivers, 36-year-old Basaaly Saeed Moalin and 56-year-old Issa Doreh, and 37-year-old Ahmed Nasir Taalil Mohamud of Anaheim, whose financial transfer business Shidaal Express was used to route the money, prosecutors said.
Government attorneys played tapes of telephone calls, many of them between Moalin and the late Aden Hashi Ayrow, who was among the top leaders of al-Shabaab until he was killed in missile strike in May 2008.[More...]

Pakistan Arrests Muslim Leader for Murdering Muslims that Weren't the Right Kind of Muslims
I guess arresting this guy is something. Just arrest another five or six million people and Pakistan might start marking a dent in the extremist population:
Pakistani police arrested Malik Ishaq, the leader of the al Qaeda-linked Lashkar-e-Jhangvi, at his home in Rahim Yar Khan, just one week after his terror group claimed credit for a bombing in Quetta that killed at least 90 people. Ishaq has been accused of direct involvement in numerous terrorist attacks but has never been convicted in a Pakistani court....Much more background here.
Last week, the Lashkar-e-Jhangvi claimed credit for the murder of more than 90 Pakistanis, mostly minority Shia, after detonating nearly one ton of "high-grade" explosives in the capital of Baluchistan province. The Lashkar-e-Jhangvi has claimed credit for numerous terror attacks in Pakistan, and has released videos of executions of captured Shia prisoners.

Terrorist Still Blowing Shit Up & Killing Innocent People In Mali

Al-Qaeda's 22 Tips For Dodging Drone Attacks
Not on the list and the best tip evah, don't join al-Qaeda
A document containing al-Qaeda's 22 tips for dodging drone attacks has been found in a building abandoned by Islamists in Mali. Here, we list all 22 tips.They left this tip out also: don't hide under a tree.
Read the full document here[PDF-editor]
The list in full (English):
1. It is possible to know the intention and the mission of the drone by using the Russianmade “sky grabber” device to infiltrate the drone’s waves and the frequencies. The device is available in the market for $2,595 and the one who operates it should be a computer know-how.
2. Using devices that broadcast frequencies or pack of frequencies to disconnect the contacts and confuse the frequencies used to control the drone. The Mujahideen have had successful experiments using the Russian-made “Racal.”
3. Spreading the reflective pieces of glass on a car or on the roof of the building

Bike Bombs Kill 13, Injures 80 in India
Terror returned to Hyderabad after five years — with two massive explosions triggered by tiffin-carrier bombs planted on cycles in the crowded Dilsukhnagar locality, leaving 13 people dead and more than 80 injured.A tiffin-carrier is like an old fashioned lunch box. It looks kind of like a large thermos, but inside are different little containers for different food items.
So, the bombs don't seem like they could have been that big. It was crowd size and location that led to so many fatalities.
Just how bad has India had it?
This is the 11th terror strike in India since the November 26, 2008 attack in Mumbai. Altogether, 60 people were killed in these attacks across five cities. The last terror attack in Hyderabad in August 2007 had killed 44.That's 11 just in the past 5 years.
Our prayers are with the Indians.
Why Taking Out Jihadi Twitter Accounts is Good for Intel
One of the most important articles written on strategies for dealing with terrorists online. Ever. Why? Because it adds data to what we've intuitively for some time.
The main takeaway:
All of this illustrates an important but oft overlooked point: Strategy doesn't have to be an all-or-nothing proposition. Total suppression of extremists on the Internet would cost us real intelligence, but that isn't a reason to just let them do whatever they want. By making their lives difficult, we make ours easier in ways large and small.Berger is make the same basic argument that I've been making for .... years and years now. Knocking jihadis off the web has a funneling affect: the less committed tend to fall off the radar because of the hassle, but the more committed are likely take the time and effort to find a new outlet.
Often the problem isn't that we don't have enough data, it's that we have too much data and not enough eyeballs to analyze it. I won't belabor the point as it is self explanatory.
Moreover, when a Twitter account or a website goes down we don't lose all the data from the previous iteration. It's called "backing up the website", and if that seems too complicated than you shouldn't be in the business in the first place.
Egyptian Terror Group 'Jihad al-Kufr' To Coptic Christians: Convert To Islam Or Die
A group of Christian priests from a local Coptic church in Egypt were told to convert to Islam or face death, according to an Arabic news site.Arab Spring, Fall, Winter, Spring[s] forth more evil from Islamists.
The incident, which comes in the midst of continued persecution and pressure on Egypt’s Christian community, took place this week in the town of Safaga, near the Red Sea, the El Balad site reported.
According to El Balad, the threats are from a new group in Egypt, Jihad al-Kufr, whose name translates to Jihad against non-believers or non-Muslims. The group targets non-Muslims, and reportedly pressures them to convert to Islam.
“It’s not the first time. This is happening every day,” said Adel Guindy, president of Coptic Solidarity and a member of Egypt’s Coptic community who travels between Paris and Cairo. “This one incident caught the attention of the news agencies, but there are worse things happening to the Christians every day in Egypt,” he said.[More..]

The Real Source of Pali Oppression? Arabs
At the end of the video, you'll see a link to the next part in the series. The first part discusses how Palestinian "refugees" are treated in Iraq. The following two segments deal with Syria and Lebanon.
The real problem here is calling these people "refugees" at all. Most of these people didn't flee their homeland, their grandparents and great-grandparents did.
The potato famine happened in the 1840s, when nearly a third of Ireland's population fled to the United States. Imagine if instead of granting them citizenship the US had labeled them "refugees" who had to live in specific areas called "refugee camps". Now imagine if this continued until the early 1900's and the children and grand-children and even great-grandchildren of these refugees were still denied citizenship. That's exactly what's going on in the Arab world.
The two constants in the Arab world are said to be that they hate the Jews, but have nothing but contempt for the Palestinians. These videos seem to make the case that the old saying is true.

Former Egyptian Foreign Minister Abu Al-Gheit: Mubarak Was A 9/11 Truther
As is Abu Al-Gheit, just sayin:
CAIR Wants Federal Investigation of Teacher Who May or May Not Have Said Something Stupid
There was a time when saying don't make a federal case out of it meant that you were making a rather big deal out of something mundane. That is, it was a bad thing to make a federal case out of it.
So, did a teacher in Washington State actually say this?
The teacher also allegedly remarked that Arabs and Muslims learn that killing innocent people is acceptable.Let us assume that the teacher did say these things. She denies it, says the student took her remarks out of context which she claims were made about terrorists, and the school district is backing her up.
Such behavior is “just like Hitler,” she said, according to KCPQ.[emphasis mine]
But, for the sake of argument, let us assume that she did say what she is alleged to have said by the student and CAIR (natch).
What federal law did she break that CAIR would like investigated?
She is alleged to have said something that might be construed as offensive. I seem to recall something in the Constitution. What was that again? Oh, right:
Congress shall make no law ... abridging the freedom of speechSo, to recap: She spoke, now CAIR wants the federal government to punish her for speaking.
Not that anyone with half a brain ever accused CAIR of understanding or respecting the Constitution of the US. Nor has anyone ever accused CAIR of being a legitimate 'civil rights' organization. Civil rights organizations promote Constitutional rights, they do not agitate for their repeal.
The federal government simply lacks any authority over what a school teacher says in their classroom.
Now, this does not mean that the school district has no right to censor their teachers. Nor does it mean that states have no right to fire teachers who do stupid things. School districts and state governments are emphatically not "Congress" -- or a federal institution -- which is what the First Amendment restricts.
School districts can and should make sure their employees aren't shooting off their mouths saying stupid things.
But let us look more closely at the allegation. She is alleged to have said that Muslims raise their children to be martyrs. That is kind of offensive and I could see why one might get upset over that.
She claims that she said no such thing, but said that "Hamas" and "the Taliban" raise their kids to be martyrs. What's offensive about that? If that offends you then you deserve to be offended and much, much more.
But the real problem that CAIR has is with her statement that the "behavior" of killing innocent people is "just like Hitler".
Get that? It's the behavior of killing innocent people that is just like Hitler. Which it is.
I know that there are generally far too many Hitler comparisons, but if CAIR thinks that it is out-of-bounds to compare the behavior of killing innocent people to Hitler then I'm just not sure I get the objection.
For some time now I've been observing a still unnamed phenomenon that is the antithesis of Islamophobia. Whereas Islamophobes are bigots who assume that Muslims are suspect simply because they are Muslims, these other as yet to be classified bigots assume that Muslims are innocent victims simply because they are Muslims. The US is out to get Muslims, both at home and abroad, so of course accusations must be true.
When a Muslim makes an accusation of discrimination they assume that the accusation is true because it is their deep seated belief that America is populated by so-called Islamophobes.
Do I think the people at CAIR believe the accusation is true? Yes, I do. Because CAIR has shown by its words and actions over the years that it is full of conspiracy minded bigots who believe that Americans are bad people who hate them and who are engaged in a "Crusade" against Islam around the world and at home.
And so I think it is ironical that those who cry Islamophobia at every turn reveal their own deep seated bigotry against their fellow Americans with every new accusation.
Thanks to Johnny for the tip.

Murder Rate Falls to Zero as Congress Declares US a Violence-Free Safe Zone!
I just made the headline up, but that's the implication coming out of the mouths of Democrats these days who argue that you shouldn't need a gun at a university since the university has been declared a violence-free safe zone.
I also propose declaring America a rape-free safe zone. That should work.
More Democratic ideas for unarmed women on avoiding rape over at The Looking Spoon.
Anyway, this kind of reminds me of the old joke about the airplane black box always surviving the crash, "Why don't they just make the whole airplane out of the black box?"
If "violence-free zones" are so violence free, why not just declare everywhere a violence-free zone?
Pakistani Taliban Leader Captured!
We've reported that one of the top leaders of the Pakistani Taliban was dead in the past only to find out that he wasn't, but I suppose that it's a lot harder to get the report wrong if you're actually looking at him as he's prostrated in front of his new cell buddy "Bubba". So, let's call the odds 10-1 that we've finally got him:
Officials say a senior Pakistan Taliban commander who was hiding out in eastern Afghanistan has been arrested.Maulvi Faquir Mohammad was made a chief deputy leader in the Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) in 2009, but had a falling out with the other TTP leaders in 2011 when he suggested the group was in negotiations with the Pakistani government.
An Afghan security official said on Tuesday that Maulvi Faqir Mohammed was arrested over the weekend in eastern Nangarhar province near the Pakistani frontier.
Mohammad was implicated in the kidnapping of 30 kids in 2011 and once warned Muslims in Pakistan that shaving your beard was a sign that you were an infidel.
VA Imam Urges Ethiopian Muslims to Fight Jihad w/ Armaments
I've heard Christian ministers give fiery sermons on why Christians ought to stand up for their faith. Such rhetoric is not unique to Islam.
But what I've never heard on a Sunday morning is the interjection that Christians ought to add "armaments" to their arsenal of tools to fight their enemies. Prayers, yes. Fasting, yes. Bible study, yes. Courage, yes. Patience, yes.
But 'armaments'? Nope.

Also, being Jewish is both a religious and ethnic connotation. The same does not apply to Christianity and Islam. Most Jews are ethnically Jewish. This doesn't apply to Islam and Christianity because both religions actively sought out and converted people of all ethnic backgrounds.
Judaism doesn't reject people for not being ethnic Jews, but neither has Judaism actively proselyted. There is no missionary zeal in Judaism because Judaism does not teach that only Jews go to heaven (or receive reward) or that non-Jews receive some sort of punishment. Hence, the low rate of conversion.
As a matter of fact, tell a Jew that you're going to convert and he'll say something along the lines of, "Why on Earth would you want to do that?"
The only acceptable response being, "For the jokes!"
So, it is not a fair comparison to say that since hating Muslims isn't racist, neither is hating Jews since both are religions and not races. In the former that is true -- Muslims aren't a race or ethnicity -- but in the latter it isn't because Jew is an ethnic identity.
Nazis killed Jews not because of their faith in the Torah, Nazis killed Jews because they were ethnically Jews. Atheist Jews and even Jews that converted to Christianity were all victims of this, yes, extreme form of racism.

The advisory was updated Monday evening, just hours after the Colorado state House of Representatives passed a package of gun control bills that includes one that would make it illegal for people with concealed weapons permits to carry guns on the campuses of public universities.
Yeah, that will teach them to mess with me! Nobody will mess with a scissor/pen/whistle wielding woman covered with urine and vomit! If someone is crazy enough to try anyway, there's always my backup plan of blowing my nose on them or sh!tting my pants.
If piss and vomit discouraged rape, then a frat house party is the safest place in the world for a woman to be.
Seriously, libs are becoming parodies of themselves. It would be hilarious if it wasn't endangering my life and my rights.
Unions To Opt Out Of Obamacare
(Hat Tip: IHateTheMedia)
The same unions that supported Obamacare now want to opt out (emphasis mine):
Who knew Obamacare was bad for workers? Unions, or rather the professional class of union leaders, were vehement supporters of Obamacare’s federal takeover of health care. Now that they’ve had a chance to actually read the 2,801-page bill and “find out what is in it,” they are upset and want out.
Major unions like the AFL-CIO and the Teamsters are now demanding that they be allowed to stay on their current health care plans and receive government subsidies to cover the increased costs some of Obamacare’s provisions will impose on lower-income workers.
New Liberal Advice For Self Defense: Charge Your Attacker
Law enforcement authorities are increasingly advising school officials – and even young students – to physically confront suspects in future campus attacks as a final line of defense.
The advisories, now included in training videos and documents prepared by police, represent a major shift in tactics for law enforcement officials who have traditionally counseled potential victims to flee and hide while waiting for authorities to answer calls for help.
"These incidents are becoming a fact of life," University of Wisconsin-Madison Police Chief Susan Riseling told a meeting of law enforcement colleagues gathered here. "If there is no other option, take the shooter out."
Don't you feel safer knowing Liberals are teaching your unarmed children to charge a school shooter?
Personally, I'd feel better shooting him from a distance. But I'm just an evil gun-toting Conservative.

Adam Lanza Batshit Crazy
Adam Lanza's intent at Sandy Hook was to surpass the terrorist Anders Breivik at mass murder.
Law enforcement sources say Adam Lanza was motivated by violent video games and a strong desire to kill more people than another infamous mass murderer.
Sources say Lanza saw himself as being in direct competition with Anders Breivik, a Norwegian man who killed 77 people in July 2011.

Colorado Democrat Rep. Joe Salazar: Women Don’t Need Guns If They ‘Feel Like They’re Going To Be Raped’
Chill, women, says Colorado Democrat Rep. Joe Salazar. While arguing for the disarmament of college students, Salazar says that even if women feel like they’re going to be raped, they may not, so who needs a firearm for protection? From Revealing Politics:Call boxes, safe zones, whistles? If you don't feel like you are gonna be raped!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I sure as hell would 'pop' a perp who tried to rape me. I don't need to "feel like he is gonna do it". Gawd.
Blow a whistle, please. WTF is that bs?
Move over Todd Akin(R) and make room for Joe Salazar(D), but he is sporting a bow tie.

Colorado Democrat Suggests Using Pens Instead Of Guns For Self Defense
(Hat Tip: Gateway Pundit)
Pens and scissors. That's all that liberals think it takes to defend your life from crazed shooters.
Better get your pens now. I hear certain assault style pens will soon be banned.
UPDATE: Congress conducts study to replace military issued assault rifles with pens:
WASHINGTON, D.C. – A newly released study conducted by Congress has proven once and for all that the pen is not mightier than the sword. Over a year long period, Special Operation Forces (SOF) serving in Afghanistan were outfitted with pens as their primary weapon of engagement, instead of the standard M-4 assault rifle.
The $387 billion study was the brainchild of Senator Dianne Feinstein (D), a member of the U.S. Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Defense.
“Military spending has spiraled out of control,” Sen. Feinstein explained to Duffel Blog reporters. “Since the pen is mightier than the sword, as the saying goes, why not equip the military with inexpensive pens? When deciding on the cost of weapons used by soldiers to defend their lives, we must keep the taxpayers welfare in mind.”
“Not only that — no one needs a military-style, semi-automatic assault rifle to hunt Taliban,” she added.
A small number of Army Special Forces and Navy SEAL teams, operating in the most hazardous areas of Afghanistan, were hand selected for the study due to their expertise in using exotic weapons.
The study initially garnered promising results.
“One positive I discovered early on was I could hide the pen in my beard,” said Mike, an Army Special Forces soldier who asked only to be identified by his first name. “I usually had five or six hidden in there. It’s not the first time my beard saved my life.”
Complaints began to surface when it was discovered military procurement officers supplied the SOF teams with equipment from the lowest contract bidder.
“We were issued worthless, plastic Bic pens” said Jake, a Navy SEAL. “We ended up dipping into our pockets and springing for Cross pens. The sturdier material allowed us to stab the carotid artery, killing an enemy outright. Usually, it resulted in a pissed off Afghan with a pen sticking out of his neck.”
The study has been deemed inconclusive due to the small number of surviving participants. Of the forty-five SOF members, only two remained to provide sufficient feedback to researchers.
Don't laugh. It could happen.
We Get Press: "Vigilante racist website" Behind Government Conspiracy to Arrest Innocent Muslims and Occupiers
Thanks to (someone) for pointing out this article from the "Salem News Channel" claiming that convicted terrorist Ziyad Yaghi is an innocent patsy in the global war against Muslims.
The "news" website seems more like an amateurish blog than an actual news website. But, whatevs, it does have some entertainment value. I especially like the part where we're accused of being "racist". Racist: I do not think that word means what you think it means:
4) Although Ziyad Yaghi's Facebook profile is set to private, a vigilante racist web blog titled the Jawa Report posted screenshots and photos of Ziyad Yaghi's Facebook account. The Jawa Report has a long history of working alongside media establishments and the US government in arresting and prosecuting suspected terrorists. The YouTube account of The Jawa Report indicates the author has an antipathy toward all Muslims, Palestinians, the Occupy Movement, and anyone that challenges the US and Israeli government status quos and foreign policies.I don't know where to begin with this. Part of it is funny, part of it is ludicrous, part of it is offensive.
We believe that the Jawa Report was the conduit for what many suspected the US government was doing with Virginian Brandon Raub's Facebook account, the former Iraqi War veteran who was arrested by the US government for inflammatory yet patriotic Facebook posts, which is we believe the Jawa Report was spying on Facebook accounts like Ziyad Yaghi's on behest or in corroboration with the US government.
First, let me address the charge of being a racist. That's an offensive accusation.
1) Any one who's read the blog for more than a week knows that I regularly ban racists. Me not banning racists from the comments should be read as lazy and doesn't read his own comments rather than approves of racist comments.
2) Islam is not a race, it's a belief system. If you think being against sharia, violent Islamism, or being pro-US is somehow being racist -- you are a moron.
3) I do not hate Muslims nor do I believe that Islam inevitably requires Muslims to engage in acts of violence nor oppression. However, this does not mean that I think all religions are the same. Nor do I think that adherents of political violence are necessarily outside of historically orthodox Islam.
4) I do believe there is something kinda-sorta akin to racism against Muslims called Islamophobia, but like the term racism the accusation that people are Islamophobes is so overused as to make the accusation almost meaningless.
Moreover, criticism of orthodox or historical Islamic beliefs are not Islamophobic in and of themselves. Most of what passes for "Islamophobia" in the popular press is actually legitimate criticism of heretofore mainstream Sunni teachings, such as the teaching that apostasy from Islam should be illegal or that criticisms of Islam's prophet Muhammad ought to outlawed.
Jumping to the conclusion that someone is guilty of some crime by virtue of being a Muslim is certainly a sign of Islamophobia. However, there is a corollary to that which has not been named and of which many Muslims are equally guilty of -- jumping to the conclusion that Muslim is innocent simply by virtue of being a Muslim.
If Islamophobia is real but rare, then I am convinced that this opposite corollary is also real. For every person that sees the arrest of a Muslim as evidence of a wider Muslim conspiracy against the West there is a person who sees that same arrest as evidence of a conspiracy by the West against Muslims. I don't have the statistics to back this up, just anecdotal evidence, but I'm inclined to believe that the latter is far more prevalent than the former if we were to measure either group as a proportion of Americans in general in the one case and of Muslims and Occupy activists in the other case. In other words, Muslims and Occupiers are far more likely to see a conspiracy against Muslims by the US than Americans in general are to see a Muslim conspiracy by American Muslims against the US.
As to the accusation that my YouTube account is evidence that I have "antipathy toward all Muslims" & "Palestinians" the author here is either stupid or a liar. At the top of my uploaded videos list are a "Deuce 4 Stryker Brigade" tribute, a video of the New Black Panther Party calling for the murder of a cartoonist, a video of Sarah Palin in a swimsuit competition. Or perhaps it's the Freedom Journal videos that the author finds offensive? Or Scarlett Johansson visiting the troops?
Unless, of course, he thinks al Qaeda represents the version of Islam he believes in. Then, guilty as charged as I do have a funny Happy Chanukah from the al Qaeda dancers video up.
You know, really offensive stuff there!
As to disdaining members of the Occupy movement? Also, guilty as charged. The only good hippie, is a hippie so stoned that he doesn't have the energy to take on the man.
Now, let us look at these images from Ziyad Yaghi's Facebook profile. I'm sure they offer nothing but exculpatory evidence as to Yaghi's innocence?
If ur a munafiq (hypocrite) I am a kill you
In any event, as to my role in Yaghi's prosecution let the facts be known: I had no role.
I got these images from Yaghi's Facebook account after he was arrested. Which means I found out about the rather stupid plot he was involved in to attack the Marine base at Quantico by reading the newspaper. I know, the difference between cause and effect makes my head head hurt!
As to my alleged involvement in the arrest of Brandon Raub, I had to do a Google search of it to see who he was. Never heard of him and The Jawa Report has never reported on him.
As to the rest of the author's claims that Yaghi is either not guilty of the crimes he was convicted of or that he received too harsh a penalty I have no opinion on that. I actually have no idea if he's guilty or not. I wasn't involved in the case, have no special insight, and have no information other than the public record. I wasn't, as the author alleges, a "spy" for the government.
In fact, I really wish the FBI would have let these guys attack Quantico. Eight retards vs. the Marines -- now that would be some first class entertainment!
Yes, it is true that when someone is convicted of a crime that I tend to believe they are guilty of the crime they were convicted of. I also tend to believe that the FBI doesn't go around arresting people for no reason, but that they do sometimes get it wrong.
I also believe that some people, like the author of this article, are paranoid idiots and a perfect illustration of the rhetorical convergence of Leftist and Islamist extremists.

Alec Baldwin In Racist Rant, Calls Black Photographer A "Coon"
But the left will forgive him because he is one of their own. Already a Democratic senator is suggesting "anger management" before the "30 Rock" star goes on to other Hollywood projects. Had Baldwin been a Republican, nothing short of a lifetime banishment would have sufficed.
But that's the hypocrisy of the left.
From The New York Post:
The "30 Rock" star grabbed the reporter, Tara Palmeri, by her arm and told her, "I want you to choke to death," Palmeri told police, for whom she played an audiotape of the conversation.
He then called G.N. Miller — a decorated retired detective with the NYPD’s Organized Crime Control Bureau and a staff photographer for The Post — a "coon, a drug dealer," Miller’s police statement said.
At one point, Miller showed Baldwin ID to prove he’s a retired NYPD cop, which Baldwin dismissed as "fake."
What I don't understand is how someone with financial security, job security, and popularity can be so full of rage and hate. I would think a comfortable life would make one happy. It really must be hard to be a liberal.
Itamar Massacre, Two Years Later
Sunday marked the two year Hebrew anniversary of the massacre of the Fogel family in Itamar, in the West Bank. A service was held near the Fogel home in Itamar which included Israeli Justice Minister Yaakov Neeman, members of the Knesset, rabbis, senior military officials, family, neighbors and friends. Neeman read a letter from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, which said he is regularly updated about the three surviving Fogel children.The brave terrorists[Warning: Strong stomach required] even slit baby Hadas throat and stabbed 4yr old Elad in the heart. For such bravery, Hamas boasted about the attack and handed out candy and sweets for killing the unsupers:
a Palestinian mujahid[Hamas Arabic] was able to break into the usurper (settlement) of “Itamar” south of Nablus in the occupied (West) Bank, and stabbed five Zionist usurpers.IDF arrested the brave mujahid, Amjad Awad, 18, and Hakim Awad, 17. Later, the bitches were convicted and are now doing time, a lot of time in pound-in-ass-prison.
Too bad Israel doesn't have the death penalty...
Floor Vote on the Assault Weapon Ban?
So, Barack Obama says he wants a floor vote on renewing the Assault Weapon Ban.
Does he really, or is he just running his mouth?
Republican leadership in the House and Democrat leadership in the Senate have both given indications that they'll be working behind the scenes to prevent a floor vote on renewal of the Assault Weapons Ban, thereby sparing legislators from being forced to cast a controversial vote on guns.
But is that really how things ought to be handled? Should our elected officials be able to avoid controversial issues by settling disputes in smoke-filled back rooms, away from the eyes of the voters?
Many Americans reject that idea. Many of us have had enough of the back-room deals. We believe our elected officials need to GO ON RECORD, up or down, as to where they stand on guns.
If you agree, here's an easy opportunity to send that message (CLICK IMAGE):

Israel Destroys 75 Homes Of Pro-Fatah Clan
Ooops, did I say Israel? I meant Hamas destroyed them:
Hamas has ordered the demolition of 75 homes belonging to the Fatah-affiliated Abu Amrah clan in a Gaza City neighborhood. Members of the Abu Amrah clan have protested this decision at the offices of the Palestinian Legislative Council. According to Abu Salah Abu Amrah, “We are refugees and we have been living in this area for tens of years.” Another resident, Hazim Abu Hmeid, claimed, “When our children come back from school, they will not know where to go because by the time they arrive, their houses will have disappeared. The only place they will have is the street in this cold winter time.”[...]Naturally, there is silence about this, including from the MFM.
While the Palestinian Legislative Council offered the Abu Amrah clan an alternative place to live, members of the Abu Amrah clan claim that the offer is not enticing for the places offered to them were remote areas without services. Not surprisingly, the international community has nothing to say about these 75 destroyed homes since the blame cannot be placed upon Israel.
Whenever Israel destroys Arab homes built illegally upon state land, there are usually plenty of international condemnations, even when Israel offers to relocate the families to areas with decent services if they cooperate. When Israel destroys Jewish homes built illegally, the international community is content. Yet when Hamas destroys the homes of a Fatah-affiliated clan, there is a deafening silence, thus highlighting the hypocrisy of the international community.[More...]

Dozens Of Protesters Condemn Dorner For Acting As Judge, Jury, And Executioner
No, not really. They were protesting the LAPD for acting as judge, jury, and executioner for Dorner.
What Dorner did, in their minds, was totally justified. His victims did nothing to warrant even a charge, much less a fair trial and due process. But because they were a willing part of the system that Dorner hated, they got what they deserved. That's the leftist #OWS mentality for you.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Dozens of protesters rallied outside Los Angeles police headquarters Saturday in support of Christopher Dorner, the former LAPD officer and suspected killer of four who died after a shootout and fire this week at a mountain cabin following one of the biggest manhunts in recent memory.
Protesters told the Los Angeles Times (http://lat.ms/11Ndm6i ) they didn't support Dorner's deadly methods, but objected to police corruption and brutality, and believed Dorner's claims of racism and unfair treatment by the department. Many said they were angered by the conduct of the manhunt that led to Dorner's death and injuries to innocent bystanders who were mistaken for him.
Michael Nam, 30, who held a sign with a flaming tombstone and the inscription "RIP Habeas Corpus," said it was "pretty obvious" police had no intention of bringing Dorner in alive.
"They were the judge, the jury and the executioner," Nam said. "As an American citizen, you have the right to a trial and due process by law."
In the leftist utopia of these #Occutards, only those who support the regime are worthy of a trial and due process. Really, not even that. In their #Occutard world, leftwing domestic terrorists deserve nothing short of full exoneration.
Those who oppose deserve a fair public trial followed immediately by a fair public hanging.

#Occupy LA Hearts Chris Dorner
Occupy Los Angeles has chosen to honor Chris Dorner in the wake of his death, despite the body count he apparently amassed. [...]
The statement of support and solidarity was posted on the Occupy Los Angeles’ official Facebook page Wednesday.
Chris Dorner definitely had the attitude and mentality of the #Occupy movement. Like #OWS protesters, Dorner had no respect for law or due process. Once he deemed someone guilty of a crime, he felt it his duty to exact punishment.
And it didn't have to be a literal crime committed for Dorner to take matters into his own hands. Just offending his PC sensitivities was enough. For example, in his manifesto he recounts two separate instances in which someone offended him with a slur, and in which he responded with his own brand of justice (emphasis mine):
I told Magana not to use that word again. I explained that it was a well known offensive word that should not be used by anyone. He replied, “I’ll say it when I want”. Officer Burdios, a friend of his, also stated that he would say nigger when he wanted. At that point I jumped over my front passenger seat and two other officers where I placed my hands around Burdios’ neck and squeezed. I stated to Burdios, “Don’t fucking say that”. At that point there was pushing and shoving and we were separated by several other officers. What I should have done, was put a Winchester Ranger SXT 9mm 147 grain bullet in his skull and Officer Magana’s skull.
The second instance in the manifesto happened when he was in high school:
A fellow student, Jim Armstrong if I can recall, called me a nigger on the playground. My response was swift and non-lethal. I struck him fast and hard with a punch an kick. He cried and reported it to a teacher. The teacher reported it to the principal. The principal swatted Jim for using a derogatory word toward me. He then for some unknown reason swatted me for striking Jim in response to him calling me a nigger.
In both these cases, Dorner reacted violently to a non-violent offense. Certain derogatory slurs are offensive to most people, but the mere utterance of such words are no excuse to respond with physical violence. Especially by someone who is supposed to be able to maintain emotional control in volatile situations.
Also, in both these cases, Dorner expressed anger and outrage that he, too, was held accountable for his behavior. Just like the #OWS movement, he expected praise and commendation for his actions, even though his actions violated common civility expected from decent people, much less from police officers.
Did Dorner have legitimate issues with the LAPD over circumstances surrounding his firing?
But taking matters into his own hands was not an option. Killing innocent people was not an option. His behavior only illustrates the LAPD was absolutely correct in one thing: Dorner was not suited to be a police officer. If his manifesto was an indicator of his mental state at the time of his firing, he should have been fired.
But to Dorner, as with the #Occupy movement, the end justifies the means. Even if the means undermines everything you achieve in the end.

Food Fight Turns Into All-Out-Brawl In Minnesota School
The StarTribune originally reported the fight started when a boy hit a girl. The news site has since removed that line.
That “all-out brawl” at South High in Minneapolis got coverage from virtually every local outlet. At WCCO-TV, Esme Murphy reports: “Twelve people complained that they had been sprayed with mace. Police at the scene said they had to use chemical agent to get the crowd under control as they were being pelted with objects as they tried to break things up. … [One student] said the fights were over pride. ‘I know it’s a pride thing between Muslims and black people,’ she said. ‘They want their pride back for something. I don’t know.’ She also said ‘boys were hitting girls’ and that some people were lying on the floor, with their hands over their heads, in surrender.… The fight, students say, was the result of long-simmering tensions between the 8 percent of students who are Somali Americans and the 20 percent who are African Americans.”
The Strib story, by Paul Walsh and Kelly Smith, says, “Guled Omar, a senior, said he was sitting in the cafeteria when the outburst began after a boy hit a girl. ‘I don't feel safe here,’ Omar said. ‘This is something that has been going on’ for at least two years, he said.
It is unclear whether the boy striking the girl was one of the Somali students or one of the other students. But one thing is clear, wherever you find large numbers of Muslim immigrants, there is conflict and strife with the native population.
California Police Chief Claims The Constitution Is A Myth
Apparently, crime doesn't exist in Police Chief Ken James' fairy land world. There is no need to defend against law enforcement officers so there is no need to have a defensive weapon, i.e. a gun.
Since, in Chief James' world, guns are not used defensively, the need for a gun as a defensive weapon is a myth. And, if self-defense is a myth, so too is the 2nd Amendment.
A gun is not an offensive weapon or a defensive weapon. Neither of those labels adequately defines it. A gun is, rather, an equalizer.
This brings to mind a post I did last year. I am reposting part of it below the fold.
Human beings only have two ways to deal with one another: reason and force. If you want me to do something for you, you have a choice of either convincing me via argument, or force me to do your bidding under threat of force. Every human interaction falls into one of those two categories, without exception. Reason or force, that’s it.
In a truly moral and civilized society, people exclusively interact through persuasion. Force has no place as a valid method of social interaction, and the only thing that removes force from the menu is the personal firearm, as paradoxical as it may sound to some.
When I carry a gun, you cannot deal with me by force. You have to use reason and try to persuade me, because I have a way to negate your threat or employment of force.
The gun is the only personal weapon that puts a 100-pound woman on equal footing with a 220-pound mugger, a 75-year old retiree on equal footing with a 19-year old gang banger, and a single guy on equal footing with a carload of drunk guys with baseball bats. The gun removes the disparity in physical strength, size, or numbers between a potential attacker and a defender.
There are plenty of people who consider the gun as the source of bad force equations. These are the people who think that we’d be more civilized if all guns were removed from society, because a firearm makes it easier for a [armed] mugger to do his job. That, of course, is only true if the mugger’s potential victims are mostly disarmed either by choice or by legislative fiat–it has no validity when most of a mugger’s potential marks are armed.
People who argue for the banning of arms ask for automatic rule by the young, the strong, and the many, and that’s the exact opposite of a civilized society. A mugger, even an armed one, can only make a successful living in a society where the state has granted him a force monopoly.
Then there’s the argument that the gun makes confrontations lethal that otherwise would only result in injury. This argument is fallacious in several ways. Without guns involved, confrontations are won by the physically superior party inflicting overwhelming injury on the loser.
People who think that fists, bats, sticks, or stones don’t constitute lethal force watch too much TV, where people take beatings and come out of it with a bloody lip at worst. The fact that the gun makes lethal force easier works solely in favor of the weaker defender, not the stronger attacker. If both are armed, the field is level.
The gun is the only weapon that’s as lethal in the hands of an octogenarian as it is in the hands of a weight lifter. It simply wouldn’t work as well as a force equalizer if it wasn’t both lethal and easily employable.
When I carry a gun, I don’t do so because I am looking for a fight, but because I’m looking to be left alone. The gun at my side means that I cannot be forced, only persuaded. I don’t carry it because I’m afraid, but because it enables me to be unafraid. It doesn’t limit the actions of those who would interact with me through reason, only the actions of those who would do so by force. It removes force from the equation…and that’s why carrying a gun is a civilized act.
Heartbreak: UK Inmates Fail in Attempt To Kill Imran Shahid
On the bright side they did put him in the hostpital.
We pray they have better luck next time.
Background below the fold.
What could be described one if not THE most despicable race hate crimes in Scotland/Britain was the horrific murder of 15 year old schoolboy, Kriss Donald - who was tortured and killed by muslim gang/men for no other reason than the young lad was white. Even the left leaning oft muslim apologist newspaper, The Guardian, was compelled to report gruesome murder:
"The court had heard that Kriss was jumped on as he walked down a street near his home with a friend. As he was bundled into a car, he screamed: "Why me? I'm only 15."
His mutilated body was found the next day on a walkway in the east end of the city. The slightly built boy had been beaten, held down and stabbed 13 times, then set on fire while he was still alive. Bleeding to death and burning, he tried to crawl towards the river Clyde but died in a ditch.
A passerby who found his body the following day thought he had stumbled across the carcass of a dead animal. "
More grisly details were found in The Independent
"The jury was told that Kriss was probably still alive when he was doused in petrol and set alight. Forensic experts said burns covered more than 70 per cent of his body. He was found on a walkway next to the river Clyde, near Celtic FC's training ground, the next day.
Described as slightly built, Kriss was so badly beaten and stabbed that one of his ribs was severed. Prosecutors described his death as an "appalling crime of inhumanity against a defenceless boy".
Other reports have even further agony being inflicted on Kriss Donald:
"Before he died, it is alleged that he was castrated, burned with cigarettes; his eyes were gouged out and he was stabbed repeatedly. Once on the waste ground he was doused with gasoline and set alight whilst still alive. He crawled a few metres and then, mercifully, died."
Three muslim men - each with multiple past convictions - were found guilt of the slaughter - Imran Shahid, 29, his brother Zeeshan Shahid, 28, and 27-year-old Mohammed Faisal Mushtaq of the abduction, assault and brutal killing on Monday March 15, 2004. - but only after they fled and tried to hide in Pakistan.
The muslim MP who helped track down the abhorrent murderers and bring them back to Great Britain, was forced to give up his position due to "a campaign of fear" from fellow muslim "henchmen":
"Britain's first Muslim MP is to step down at the next election after he and his family received repeated death threats over his role in bringing three racist killers to justice. Mohammad Sarwar played a crucial part in securing the conviction of three Asian men for kidnapping, torturing and murdering the white schoolboy Kriss Donald in 2004. As a result, he has been subjected to a campaign of fear from the killers' henchmen, including threats to kill his children and grandchildren.

Meteor Strikes Russia!
A meteor streaked through the skies above Russia's Urals region Friday morning, before exploding with a flash and boom that shattered glass in buildings and left hundreds of people hurt.
Twitter post showing Zinc Factory struck
The number of injured continues to rise as new reports come in from across a wide area.
As of noon Moscow time, as many as 725 people had sought medical help, according to the state-run RIA Novosti news agency.
Deputy Health Minister Igor Kagramanyan said 571 people had sought medical help, with 34 of them hospitalized, according to state-news agency Itar-Tass.
Another asteroid will be approaching Earth at a distance if 17K miles a little after 2:00 pm US eastern.
Given that many asteroids have large boulders held by weak gravity and also these events close proximity, I'm speculating that 2012-DA14 could have many companion objects in its orbit, possibly from a prior collision. Obviously the public statements of no danger at all were less than accurate, although we know the large asteroid will not strike Earth. Its possible there are other unknown objects.
More video below the fold.
Update: Actual astronomers say my speculation is wrong, that the meteor that struck Russia came from a different direction than the asteroid due to pass Earth here in a few minutes.
What struck Russia is part of a phenomenon called February Fireballs.
But what the hell would they know?

Iranian General Killed in Lebanon by the "Zionists" or Syria by "Terrorists"
It's funny because it's .... well, let's just leave it at it's funny:
An Iranian independent news website is reporting that a senior commander of Iran’s powerful Revolutionary Guard has been killed in LebanonKilled by the Zionists, eh? Not so fast. According to the Iranians, Shateri wasn't killed in Lebanon. He was killed in Syria:
The website — mashreghnews.ir — says Gen. Hassan Shateri was killed by “mercenaries of the Zionist regime,” but provided no details about his death.
Hezbollah's Al-Manar TV says the man was killed in an attack by Syrian rebels. This is the first report of an Iranian official killed in the Syrian civil war.So, what is the devious J-O-Os? Or was it the dreaded anti-Assad "terrorists"? Either way, this is the time at The Jawa Report when we dance!
Update by SH: There appears to be a problem with his name as well as where he was eliminated: His name? Good question...

Kenya: Family Of Hostages Held By Al Shabaab Crying For Help
Sadly, unless they are rescued, they most likely will be killed. The savages of the African Taliban enjoy killing innocents:
Nairobi — Twenty-six-year-old Komora Yesse is an emotionally wrecked man.Al Shabaab's Twitter account was suspended shortly after they posted images of a French commando who was killed in a failed attempt to rescue hostage Denis Allex. Also, they linked to a download for the below video of the Kenyan hostages. They also tweeted a ultimatum:
His brother's heart-wrenching fate is due to be sealed within the next 20 something hours, in the war-torn Somalia.
So as the clock slowly ticks towards midnight Thursday, he will have to keep checking social networks to know whether or not the Al Shabaab terror group makes good its threat to execute his elder brother, Edward Mule and registration clerk Fredrick Irungu.
"It is very sad. It is hard on my mother because of the pain of losing a child. It is hard on my sister, his wife, my father and me. We just want to talk to him again. All I think of is Mule," says Yesse.[More...]
They have since opened a new Twitter account - @HSMPRESS1. I don't see anything on it regarding these hostages and most likely they are careful not to do so. There is also another Twitter account here, but most likely a supporter and not a spokesperson for al-Shabaab.
Tomorrow will tell the tale, sigh. My thoughts and prayers are with the families of the hostages.

American, British Taliban Confirmed Dead
A dead American and Brit were recently eulogized by the Taliban in a propaganda video. This is the first time I've heard about these two. How many other traitors are over in Pakistan fighting?
The Taliban identified the two Western jihadists as "Inaam," who is from "America," and "Abbas," who is from "Britain." The full identities of Inaam and Abbas were not disclosed, nor have their deaths been reported in the press. The Taliban did not disclose the date or locations of their deaths, or how they were killed.The only good news here is that both of them got what they deserved.
Inaam and Abbas may have been killed in Pakistan, perhaps in a drone strike or while fighting the Pakistani security services.
In related news, a video is circulating showing an American fighting with al Qaeda linked terrorists in Syria.
Unarmed Father Killed Protecting Young Daughter From Heavily Armed Intruders
Why does anyone need an "assault" rifle? Why does anyone need more than 6 or 7 rounds in a weapon?
Police say two heavily armed men fatally shot a homeowner as he tried to protect his daughter during a home invasion.
The incident happened late Tuesday night in Miami. The father, identified as Maurice Renard, 36, got into a struggle with the suspects when they tried to gain entry into his 11-year-old daughter's bedroom, police told FoxNews.com. The father was fatally shot in the struggle.
No time to call 911. The criminals were heavily armed. The father wasn't. The end result is a little girl without her father.
Had the father been armed, maybe the outcome would have been the same. But at least he would have had a chance against these two heavily armed intruders. What gun control advocates want to do is take away this one chance.
Al Qaeda Winning Hearts and Minds in Syria
There is a great line from Gladiator which summed up Roman politics well: Whoever controls the mob, controls Rome. And the way you controlled the mob was to give them bread and entertainment.
Which, parenthetically, seems very much related to Obama's SOTU address last night. But I digress.
I'm not sure how al Qaeda is doing with the entertainment -- public beheading might eventually fill that role -- but it seems they've go the bread part down pat:
y distributing fresh vegetables, bread, cooking oil, water and blankets to Syrians in rebel-held areas, the Al Nusra fighters - considered one of the most effective rebel groups but blacklisted as terrorists by the US - have exploited an opportunity to boost their popularity for when the regime of Bashar Al Assad falls.The irony here is that the US is the #1 supplier of humanitarian aid to Syrian refugees. Yet most Syrians don't know this because we no longer mark the aid as from the US, the thinking being something along the lines that if they knew it was from the US they'd be pissed. For some reason.
"It's a way for them to win hearts and minds even if people don't agree with their ideology," said Aaron Y Zelin, a fellow at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, referring to the group's end goal of creating a strict Islamist state.
So, we're damned if we do and we're damned if we don't.
Obama's Delusions of a Defeated al Qaeda
I'm never sure whether President Obama is lying, is using words just nuanced enough to avoid the label of a "lie" but which intentionally mislead, or if he's really just that ignorant. I like to give the benefit of the doubt to people, but when all your options mean you're either a liar, a scumbag, or a fool then I'm not sure which is the most charitable?
Over at the UK's Telegraph, Con Coughlin, the paper's defense editor, takes on Obama's SOTU address:
There are times, such as last night's State of the Union address, when I think President Barack Obama has taken leave of reality. How he can claim, when half the Arab world is being overrun by Islamist militants, that al-Qaeda is now a shadow of its former self is beyond comprehension.READ THE REST.
Is he forgetting that it is only five months since Chris Stevens, the US ambassador to Libya, died following an attack on the American Consulate in Benghazi by al-Qaeda militants? Is he unaware of al-Qaeda's takeover of large swathes of North Africa? Hasn't anyone told him that al-Qaeda is now playing an active role in trying to overthrow the Assad regime in Damascus, as well as infiltrating other Islamist movements in places such as Egypt and Tunisia?

One More Reason Why Rusty Wants to Leave Academia
My head, it hurts:
Megan Thode isn't the first Lehigh University student who was unhappy with the grade she received in a course. But she may be the first to sue to get it changed.The sad part? The story goes on to say that Lehigh might settle. So, regardless of the silliness of the claim it's going to encourage others students to sue.
The C+ that Thode was given scuttled her dream of becoming a licensed professional counselor and was part of an effort to force her out of the graduate degree program she was pursuing, said her lawyer, Richard J. Orloski, whose lawsuit seeks $1.3 million in damages.
And since I'm not exactly known for my leniency in grading, I'm guessing that in the next few years I'm totally screwed.

Christopher Dorner In Big Bear Gun Battle; 2 Officers Hurt
The six-day manhunt for accused killer Christopher Dorner took a dramatic turn Tuesday when the suspect got into a shootout with authorities, according to law enforcement sources.Developing...
Details were sketchy. But the sources said that Dorner burglarized a home in the Big Bear area, tied up a couple and stole their car.
During the gun battle, two police officers were wounded. Their conditions are unknown. A state fish and game official was shot at, sources said.
Four local schools are on lockdown[More...]
UPDATE: I've swapped the KTLA video for the local Fox affiliate. This stream is live. It looks like the cabin where he was suspected of hiding out is surrounded.
The fact that SB County Sheriffs are checking every single car coming down HWY 330 seems to suggest that they don't know where Dorner is.
Update: One officer who was shot has died. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family at this time.
If you have problems with the above live feed, you can watch/listen to it here.

*Shock*: Esquire Article Documenting John Rambo Treatment of Guy Who Killed bin Laden Full of Sh*t [UPDATED]
Did I not call this? Just to clarify, the article really is worth reading. But it's really two articles. One, a first hand description of the raid that killed bin Laden -- an excellent piece. And the other, a narrative which makes the guy who killed bin Laden -- "Shooter" -- a caricature out of just about any stupid movie about veterans made since 1975. To quote myself:
I'm surprised the piece didn't end with Shooter hitchhiking his way through a small Northwestern town, harassed by the the uncaring local police he has no choice but to take matters into his own hands. The final casualty of war? The entire Hope police department, 200 state troopers, and various weekend warriors of the Washington State National Guard. It's a good thing his old Colonel showed up to talk him down, otherwise we'd all be dead!Anyway, many of the "facts" laid out in this second narrative are now in dispute. Stars and Stripes:
Like every combat veteran of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, the former SEAL, who is identified in the story only as “the Shooter”, is automatically eligible for five years of free healthcare through the Department of Veterans Affairs.No, in fact the story does make some serious bullshit claims and overtly advances a narrative that the SEAL who shot bin Laden was just another victim of the military industrial complex. It really was that trite. Every single stereotype of the Leftist narrative is embodied by the SEAL.
But the story doesn’t mention that.
He's out of work. No health care. His marriage is collapsing. He's suicidal.
I'm not saying that the guy's life might be screwed up. What I'm saying is that it is atypical. Veterans are not victims and should not be treated as such.
For instance, veteran unemployment is below the national average. Sorry Occum, the stats you cite are wrong. Here's what the VA said last week:
On Friday, the Bureau of Labor Statistics released Veteran unemployment data for the month of January. The unemployment rate for all Veterans was 7.6 percent—a slight increase from last month but still below the national average of 7.9 percent. For Post-9/11 veterans, the rate was 11.7 percent. While Veteran unemployment has ticked up over the past several months, the long-term trend remains downward.For other young people in the 18 - 29 year old range, the unemployment rate is 13%. Which means even younger veterans have a lower unemployment rate than the population of the same age group as a whole.
As I also noted yesterday, I predicted that Blackfive would take on the article:
in his article for Esquire, Phil quotes the wife: "the loss of income and insurance and no pension aside, she can no longer walk onto a local base... they've surrendered their military IDs." "He's lost some vision, he can't get his neck straight for any period of time..." If this were indeed the case, this is easy stuff to document in the out-processing; and they DO do a medical when you out-process for a separation physical. Period. If his vision, alone, was affected, they'd document it. Neck issues? The x-rays would pick it up.Go read the comments for some insightful analysis of how the Esquire narrative got it completely wrong.
He then writes that according to Shooter, ''if I come back alive and retire, I won't have a pot to piss in or a window to throw it out of for the rest of my life.'' So what do you have now? If Shooter had retired, he'd have an income and med coverage, at a minimum. So he comes back from the 4-month deployment, leaves, and STILL has nothing? He'd have been better off waiting. At 18 years, he could have reached 'sanctuary' and been what we call 'retired on active duty'.
More and more issues show up the more I read the article. It's good fiction, but that's all it is- fiction.
Also as predicted, This Aint Hell has picked up that the Esquire author is tied in with the antiwar crowd. And not the nation-building isn't what we should be doing antiwar crowd. No, the America-is-the-real-terrorist antiwar crowd.
Let me also put up some comments by reader PSDiver on the Esquire article:
There are several points that do not track. First and foremost the Navy didn't tell me that I wouldn't have any benefits is I got out short of my 20. Funny, you have to sign paperwork stating that you understand that you will not have insurance, etc. if you do not retire from the service. Second, I am a member of the elite of the elite and no one is helping me out. If you were just Joe Blow Sailor I could agree with that one, but SEALs are tight and if you wanted help it would come your way. A third point is that this individual didn't want to keep carrying a gun, but didn't want a desk job either to finish out the 20... really?!? So just because you no longer want to do what you get paid for you should be able to do whatever you want?!? ...Again, I'm not blaming Shooter here. I think what Bronstein did was selectively take quotes from Shooter in order to foster a particularly Leftist point of view.
Finally, there are a bunch of people that would kill for the chance to be a beer truck driver... so suck it up.
UPDATE: Apparently, there was less room in the online version than in the print version. What the what?
And if you want to know just how thorough your betters in the MSM are, go check out this Twitchy post that shows that even after Esquire issued an apology, they're still forwarding the narrative that Shooter has no health care.
You Keep Using that word "Freedom". I do not think that word means what you think it means.

College Student: Southern Poverty Law Center Endangered My Life
Via Coll-ege In-Sur-rec-tion:
Anna Maria Hoffman is a student who was interning at the Family Research Council when Floyd Lee Corkins entered the building with the goal of killing as many people as possible. Corkins targeted the FRC because of a “hate map” on the SPLC website.SPLC has refused to remove the FRC from their Hate Map, so it's no surprise that the MFM holds the SPLC in high esteem and frequently quotes them.

15 Tweets And 0 Bullets
A commenter, Maxx, at Twitchy points out the absurdity of gun control. (Title) While the Delaware shooter fired on his victims, witnesses had time to tweet warnings as they hid in fear, but not one of them had a weapon to defend their lives.
But even as some tweeters hid, a few found the time to mock legal gun owners:
Upon first read, I thought this lawyer might be appealing for less gun control. If "the NRA" had been there, it is very possible at least some of the victims may have been spared. But in the following Twitter conversation, Lubinski is clear she was deriding the NRA.
Of course, no one told her to shut up. In fact, most the responses have been respectful. They were just responding to her inappropriate tweet. Yet once "the NRA" began to reply to her politicized tweet, she took offense:

I Bet No Would Care
The United States is taking a number of actions today that tighten sanctions on Iran’s access to its oil revenues and further expose the Iranian government’s continued abuse of human rights. Key provisions of the Iran Threat Reduction and Syria Human Rights Act of 2012 (TRA) that go into effect today, expand the scope of sanctionable transactions with the Central Bank of Iran and designated Iranian financial institutions by restricting Iran’s ability to use oil revenue held in foreign financial institutions as well as preventing repatriation of those funds to Iran. The U.S. Department of the Treasury, in consultation with the U.S. Department of State, also designated one individual and four entities for their involvement in the Iranian government’s censorship activities. These censorship activities restrict the free flow of information in Iran and punish Iranian citizens who are attempting to exercise freedom of assembly and expression.Asymmetric Warfare: It's not just for the other guys.

"I Shot bin Laden"
You haven't read the Esquire interview with "Shooter", the SEAL who shot Osama bin Laden? Do you hate America or are you just lazy?
I'm just looking at him from right here [he moves his hand out from his face about ten inches]. He's got a gun on a shelf right there, the short AK he's famous for. And he's moving forward. I don't know if she's got a vest and she's being pushed to martyr them both. He's got a gun within reach. He's a threat. I need to get a head shot so he won't have a chance to clack himself off [blow himself up].And we all know about bin Laden's porn stash, but what about his drug stash?
In that second, I shot him, two times in the forehead. Bap! Bap! The second time as he's going down. He crumpled onto the floor in front of his bed and I hit him again, Bap! same place. That time I used my EOTech red-dot holo sight. He was dead. Not moving. His tongue was out. I watched him take his last breaths, just a reflex breath.
In each computer room, there was a bed. Under the beds were these huge duffel bags, and I'm pulling them out, looking for whatever. At first I thought they were filled with vacuum-sealed rib-eye steaks. I thought, They're in this for the long haul. They've got all this food. Then, wait a minute. This is raw opium. These drugs are everywhere. It was pretty funny to see that. Altogether, he helped clean three rooms on the second floor.If you can get through the incredible amount of bullshit that the author, Phil Bronstein, lays out the story is more than just compelling: it's riveting.
Bronstein uses "Shooter" to forward the usual narrative about veterans. They're traumatized. Suicidal. They're marriages are breaking up. They can't find work. All because they "sacrificed it all" for a military that could care less about them.
I'm surprised the piece didn't end with Shooter hitchhiking his way through a small Northwestern town, harassed by the the uncaring local police he has no choice but to take matters into his own hands. The final casualty of war? The entire Hope police department, 200 state troopers, and various weekend warriors of the Washington State National Guard. It's a good thing his old Colonel showed up to talk him down, otherwise we'd all be dead!
Seriously, the author's narrative was really that trite and predictable. It's the kind of narrative that the guys over at Blackfive and This Aint Hell have been trying to counter for years. Mostly because it's a pile of bullshit. It's the warriors-as-victims narrative. And it's offensive.
But the story of what really happened that night? Compelling. It turns out that Zero Dark Thirty was pretty close to dead on.
The only really unanswered question is this: Who was the wise guy that planted the squirt guns? Come on SEALS, inquiring minds want to know!
Book: Benghazi Was Part of Larger War Against AQIM
I haven't yet read the new book by Jack Murphy and Brandon Webb, Benghazi: The Definitive Report, but I plan to. I'm reading reviews of the book by the New York Post and The Daily Mail both of which suggest that Ambassador Chris Stevens wasn't in the loop about a low level JSOC war against Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb's (AQIM's) Libyan affiliate. The gist being that his murder was in retaliation for the assassination of several AQIM leaders:
The central premise of 'Benghazi: The Definitive Report' is that the attacks were precipitated by secret raids JSOC had performed in Libya. An attack on the Islamist group Ansar al-Sharia days before September 11 may have been the final straw.Has anyone read the book? If so, are the reviews cited above an accurate portrayal of the book's central thesis? Also, how believable is the evidence they author's present?
Heavily-armed militants with Ansar al-Sharia attacked the consulate on September 11 as retaliation, the book claims. Ambassador Chris Stevens and Foreign Service Officer Sean Smith died of smoke inhalation when insurgents set fire to the consulate.
After the raid, the militants launched a second attack against a CIA annex across town. It was there that CIA security contractors Ty Woods and Glen Doherty - both former U.S. Navy SEALs - were killed when their position took a direct hit from an enemy mortar....
Webb and Murphy claim that the 'inside' story of the attack - as told by their connections in the CIA and special operations units of the military - show that Brennan never warned the CIA or Stevens about ongoing U.S. military operations in the country.
Had the State Department and the intelligence community known about what was happening, they would have stepped up security in Benghazi and could have prevented the tragedy.

Things Heating Up in Thailand ... In a Bad Way
When most people think of Thailand, they think of idyllic beaches and creepy sex tourism. But in Thailand's south, some Muslims have decided they've had enough of the infidels and want their own country. Over the weekend at least seven people were killed, including:
In Pattani province, two people were gunned down and four others, including three children, were wounded in separate shooting attacks....
In Nong Chik district, four people, including three children, were injured after suspected terrorists insurgents sprayed bullets at several houses about 6 p.m.
Shooting In Delaware
3 people dead, including gunman. Prayers for the victims' families.
WILMINGTON, Del. -- A suspected shooter at the New Castle County Courthouse killed his wife and another woman, and wounded two other people before he was shot and killed Monday morning.
The shooting happened inside the courthouse, located on 500 N. King Street at around 8:25 a.m. WCAU said at least six nearby schools had been placed on lockdown.
If only his estranged wife had had a gun to defend herself. She might still be dead, but at least she would have had a chance.

He's getting too old. That never stopped any other Popes.
In the spirit of tolerance and appeasement, the Vatican promises to select an Islamic Imam for the next Pope.

The Left Embraces A Murderer
He claimed racism. He claimed corruption. He murdered three innocent people.
Even if Dorner's accusations against the LAPD are true, any person who would kill innocent people to prove a political point is nothing but a domestic terrorist. But, as we already know, domestic terrorists are the leftwingers' heroes.
Transcript of Dorner's manifesto below the fold. (Thanks, Red State)
From: Christopher Jordan Dorner/7648
Sub: Last resort
Regarding CF# 07-004281
I know most of you who personally know me are in disbelief to hear from media reports that I am suspected of committing such horrendous murders and have taken drastic and shocking actions in the last couple of days. You are saying to yourself that this is completely out of character of the man you knew who always wore a smile wherever he was seen. I know I will be villified by the LAPD and the media.
Unfortunately, this is a necessary evil that I do not enjoy but must partake and complete for substantial change to occur within the LAPD and reclaim my name. The department has not changed since the Rampart and Rodney King days. It has gotten worse. The consent decree should never have been lifted. The only thing that has evolved from the consent decree is those officers involved in the Rampart scandal and Rodney King incidents have since promoted to supervisor, commanders, and command staff, and executive positions.
The question is, what would you do to clear your name?
A word or set of words by which a person, animal, place, or thing is known, addressed, or referred to.
reputation, title, appellation, denomination, repute.
A name is more than just a noun, verb, or adjective. It’s your life, your legacy, your journey, sacrifices, and everything you’ve worked hard for every day of your life as and adolescent, young adult and adult. Don’t let anybody tarnish it when you know you’ve live up to your own set of ethics and personal ethos.
In 8/07 I reported an officer (Ofcr. Teresa Evans/now a Sergeant), for kicking a suspect (excessive force) during a Use of Force while I was assigned as a patrol officer at LAPD’s Harbor Division. While cuffing the suspect, (Christopher Gettler), Evans kicked the suspect twice in the chest and once in the face. The kick to the face left a visible injury on the left cheek below the eye. Unfortunately after reporting it to supervisors and investigated by PSB (internal affairs investigator Det. Villanueva/Gallegos), nothing was done. I had broken their supposed “Blue Line”.
Unfortunately, It’s not JUST US, it’s JUSTICE!!! In fact, 10 months later on 6/25/08, after already successfully completing probation, acquiring a basic Post Certificate, and Intermediate Post Certificate, I was relieved of duty by the LAPD while assigned to patrol at Southwest division. It is clear as day that the department retaliated toward me for reporting Evans for kicking Mr. Christopher Gettler. The department stated that I had lied and made up the report that Evans had kicked the suspect.
I later went to a Board of Rights (department hearing for decision of continued employment) from 10/08 to 1/09. During this BOR hearing a video was played for the BOR panel where Christopher Gettler stated that he was indeed kicked by Officer Evans (video sent to multiple news agencies). In addition to Christopher Gettler stating he was kicked, his father Richard Gettler, also stated that his son had stated he was kicked by an officer when he was arrested after being released from custody. This was all presented for the department at the BOR hearing. They still found me guilty and terminated me.
What they didn’t mention was that the BOR panel made up of Capt. Phil Tingirides, Capt. Justin Eisenberg, and City Attorney Martella had a signigicant problem from the time the board was assembled. Capt. Phil Tingirides was a personal friend of Teresa Evans from when he was her supervisor at Harbor station. That is a clear conflict of interest and I made my argument for his removal early and was denied. The advocate for the LAPD BOR was Sgt. Anderson. Anderson also had a conflict of interest as she was Evans friend and former partner from Harbor division where they both worked patrol together. I made my argument for her removal when I discovered her relation to Evans and it was denied.
During the BOR, the department attempted to label me unsuccessfully as a bully. They stated that I had bullied a recruit, Abraham Schefres, in the academy when in reality and unfounded disposition from the official 1.28 formal complaint investigation found that I was the one who stood up for Abraham Schefres when other recruits sang nazi hitler youth songs about burning Jewish ghettos in WWII Germany where his father was a survivor of a concentration camp. How fucking dare you attempt to label me with such a nasty vile word. I ask that all earnest journalist investigating this story ask Ofcr. Abraham Schefres about the incident when Ofcr. Burdios began singing a nazi youth song about burning jewish ghettos.
The internal affairs investigation in the academy involving Schefres was spurned by a complaint that I had initiated toward two fellow recruit/offifcers. While on a assigned patrol footbeat in Hollywood Division, Officers Hermilio Buridios IV and Marlon Magana (both current LAPD officers) decided that they would voice their personal feelings about the black community. While traveling back to the station in a 12 passenger van I heard Magana refer to another individual as a nigger. I wasn’t sure if I heard correctly as there were many conversations in the van that was compiled of at least 8 officers and he was sitting in the very rear and me in the very front.
Even with the multiple conversations and ambient noise I heard Officer Magana call an indivdual a nigger again. Now that I had confirmed it, I told Magana not to use that word again. I explained that it was a well known offensive word that should not be used by anyone. He replied, “I’ll say it when I want”. Officer Burdios, a friend of his, also stated that he would say nigger when he wanted. At that point I jumped over my front passenger seat and two other officers where I placed my hands around Burdios’ neck and squeezed. I stated to Burdios, “Don’t fucking say that”. At that point there was pushing and shoving and we were separated by several other officers. What I should have done, was put a Winchester Ranger SXT 9mm 147 grain bullet in his skull and Officer Magana’s skull.
The Situation would have been resolved effective, immediately. The sad thing about this incident was that when Detective Ty from internal affairs investigated this incident only (1) officer (unknown) in the van other than myself had statements constistent with what actually happened. The other six officers (John Carey, Gary Parker, Jacob Waks, Abraham Schefres and names I have forgotten) all stated they heard nothing and saw nothing. Shame on every one of you. Shame on Detective Ty (same ethnicity as Burdios) for creating a separate 1.28 formal complaint against me (Schefres complaint) in retaliation for initiating the complaint against Burdios and Magana. Don’t retaliate against honest officers for breaking your so called blue line.
I hope your son Ryan Ty, who I knew, is a better officer than you, Detective Ty.The saddest part of this ordeal was that Officer Burdios and Magana were only given 22 day suspensions and are still LAPD officers to this day. That day, the LAPD stated that it is acceptable for fellow officers to call black officers niggers to their face and you will receive a slap on the wrist. Even sadder is that during that 22 day suspension Buridios and Magana received is that the LAPPL (Los Angeles Police Protective League) paid the officers their salaries while they were suspended. When I took a two day suspension for an accidental discharge, I took my suspension and never applied for a league salary. Its called integrity.
Journalist, I want you to investigate every location I resided in growing up. Find any incidents where I was ever accused of being a bully. You won’t, because it doesn’t exist. It’s not in my DNA. Never was. I was the only black kid in each of my elementary school classes from first grade to seventh grade in junior high and any instances where I was disciplined for fighting was in response to fellow students provoking common childhood schoolyard fights, or calling me a nigger or other derogatory racial names. I grew up in neighborhoods where blacks make up less than 1%. My first recollection of racism was in the first grade at Norwalk Christian elementary school in Norwalk, CA. A fellow student, Jim Armstrong if I can recall, called me a nigger on the playground. My response was swift and non-lethal. I struck him fast and hard with a punch an kick. He cried and reported it to a teacher. The teacher reported it to the principal. The principal swatted Jim for using a derogatory word toward me. He then for some unknown reason swatted me for striking Jim in response to him calling me a nigger. He stated as good Christians we are to turn the other cheek as Jesus did. Problem is, I’m not a fucking Christian and that old book, made of fiction and limited non-fiction, called the bible, never once stated Jesus was called a nigger. How dare you swat me for standing up for my rights for demanding that I be treated as a equal human being. That day I made a life decision that i will not tolerate racial derogatory terms spoken to me. Unfortunately I was swatted multiple times for the same exact reason up until junior high. Terminating me for telling the truth of a caucasian officer kicking a mentally ill man is disgusting. Don’t ever call me a fucking bully. I want all journalist to utilize every source you have that specializes in collections for your reports. With the discovery and evidence available you will see the truth. Unfortunately, I will not be alive to see my name cleared. That’s what this is about, my name. A man is nothing without his name. Below is a list of locations where I resided from childhood to adulthood.
Pico Rivera, CA.
La Palma, CA.
Thousand Oaks, CA.
Cedar City, UT.
Yorba Linda, CA.
Las Vegas, NV.
During the BOR an officer named, Sgt. Hernandez, from Los Angeles Port Police testified on behalf of the LAPD. Hernandez stated for the BOR that he arrived at the location of the UOF shortly before I cuffed the suspect. He also stated that he assisted in cuffing the suspect and that’s old the BOR he told me to fix my tie. All of those statements were LIES!!! Hernandez, you arrived at the UOF location up to 30 seconds after I had cuffed Mr. Gettler. All you did was help me lift the suspect to his feet as it was difficult for me to do by myself because of his heavy weight. You did not tell me to fix my tie as the BOR members and everyone else in the room know you lied because the photographic evidence from the UOF scene where Gettler’s injuries were photographed clearly shows me wearing a class B uniform on that day. A class B uniform is a short sleeved uniform blouse. A short sleeved uniform blouse for the LAPD does not have a tie included. This is not Super Troopers uniform, you jackass. Why did you feel the need to embellish and lie about your involvement in the UOF? Are you ashamed that you could not get hired on by any other department other than port police? Do you have delusions of grandeur? What you did was perjury, exactly what Evans did when she stated she did not kick Christopher Gettler.
What they failed to mention in the BOR was Teresa Evans own use of force history during her career on the LAPD. She has admitted that she has a lengthy use of force record and has been flagged several times by risk management. She has a very well known nickname, Chupacabra, which she was very proud to flaunt around the division. She found it very funny and entertaining to draw blood from suspects and arrestees. At one point she even intentionally ripped the flesh off the arm of a woman we had arrested for battery (sprayed her neighbor with a garden water hose). Knowing the woman had thin elastic skin, she performed and Indian burn to the woman’s arm after cuffing her. That woman was in her mid-70′s, a mother and grandmother, and was angry at her tenants who failed to pay rent on time. Something I can completely understand and I am sure many have wanted to do toward tenants who do not pay their rent. Teresa Evans was also demoted from a senior lead officer rank/position for performance issues. During my two months of working patrol with Teresa Evans, I found her as a woman who was very angry that she had been pulled from patrol for a short time because of a domestic violence report made by Long Beach Police Department because of an incident involving her active LAPD officer boyfriend, Dominick Fuentes, and herself. Dominick Fuentes is the same officer investigated for witness tampering. She also was visibly angry on a daily basis that she was going to have to file for bankruptcy because her ex-husband, a former LAPD officer and not Dominick Fuentes, who had left the department, state, and was nowhere to be found had left her with a tax bill and debt that she was unable to pay because of a lack of financial means. Evans, you are a POS and you lied right to the BOR panel when Randy Quan asked you if you kicked Christopher Gettler. You destroyed my life and name because of your actions. Time is up. The time is now to confess to Chief Beck.
I ask that all journalist investigating this story submit request for FOIA with the LAPD to gain access to the BOR transcripts which occurred from 10/08 to 2/09. There, you will see that a video was played for the BOR members of Mr. Christopher Gettler who suffers from Schizophrenia and Dementia stating that he was kicked by a female officer. That video evidence supports my claim that Evans kicked him twice in the upper body and once in the face. I would like all journalist to also request copies of all reports that I had written while employed by LAPD. Whether in the academy, or during my 3 years as a police officer. There are DR#’s attached to each report (investigative report) that I have ever written so they all exist. A FOIA request will most likely be needed to access these at Parker center or at the Personnel/Records. Judge my writin/grammar skills for yourself. The department attempted to paint me as an officer who could not write reports. Even though Sgt. Joel Sydanmaa a training officer who trained me stated for the BOR panel that there was nothing wrong with my report writing and that I was better than all rookie/probationer officers he has ever trained. Officer David Drew stated the same but refused to testify as he did not want to “get involved” with the BOR’s. Contact Sgt. Donald Deming ,(now a Captain at Lompoc PD), Sgt. Thaddeus Faulk, and Sgt. Ed Clark. All will state that my report writing was impeccable. I will tell you this, I always type my reports because I have messy handwriting/penmanship. I never had a single kickback/redlined report at Southwest division and Sgt. Faulk and Sgt. Clark can testify to that. I never received an UNSATISFACTORY on any day or week. The same can be said within the U.S. Naval Reserves. All commanders will state that my report writing was always clear, concise, and impeccable. Even search my AAR (after action reports),chits, Memorandum’s, IIR’s (Intelligence Information Reports) which were written in the Navy. All were pristine.
I had worked patrol at LAPD’s Harbor Division from 2/06 until 7/06 when I was involuntarily recalled back to active duty (US Navy) for a 12 month mobilization/deployment to Centcom in support of OIF/OEF. I returned back to LAPD’s Harbor division on 7/07 and immediately returned to patrol. I worked
at Harbor division until 11/07 where I then transferred to Southwest Division. I worked At Southwest division until 6/25/08 when I was relieved of duty.
I have exhausted all available means at obtaining my name back. I have attempted all legal court efforts within appeals at the Superior Courts and California Appellate courts. This is my last resort. The LAPD has suppressed the truth and it has now lead to deadly consequences. The LAPD’s actions have cost me my law enforcement career that began on 2/7/05 and ended on 1/2/09. They cost me my Naval career which started on 4/02 and ends on 2/13. I had a TS/SCI clearance(Top Secret Sensitive Compartmentalized Information clearance) up until shortly after my termination with LAPD. This is the highest clearance a service member can attain other than a Yankee White TS/SCI which is only granted for those working with and around the President/Vice President of the United States. I lost my position as a Commanding Officer of a Naval Security Forces reserve unit at NAS Fallon because of the LAPD. I’ve lost a relationship with my mother and sister because of the LAPD. I’ve lost a relationship with close friends because of the LAPD. In essence, I’ve lost everything because the LAPD took my name and new I was INNOCENT!!! Capt Phil Tingirides, Justin Eisenberg, Martella, Randy Quan, and Sgt. Anderson all new I was innocent but decided to terminate me so they could continue Ofcr. Teresa Evans career. I know about the meeting between all of you where Evans attorney, Rico, confessed that she kicked Christopher Gettler (excessive force). Your day has come.
I’m not an aspiring rapper, I’m not a gang member, I’m not a dope dealer, I don’t have multiple babies momma’s. I am an American by choice, I am a son, I am a brother, I am a military service member, I am a man who has lost complete faith in the system, when the system betrayed, slandered, and libeled me. I lived a good life and though not a religious man I always stuck to my own personal code of ethics, ethos and always stuck to my shoreline and true North. I didn’t need the US Navy to instill Honor, Courage, and Commitment in me but I thank them for re-enforcing it. It’s in my DNA.
Luckily I don’t have to live everyday like most of you. Concerned if the misconduct you were apart of is going to be discovered. Looking over your shoulder, scurrying at every phone call from internal affairs or from the Captains office wondering if that is the day PSB comes after you for the suspects you struck when they were cuffed months/years ago or that $500 you pocketed from the narcotics dealer, or when the other guys on your watch beat a transient nearly to death and you never reported the UOF to the supervisor. No, I don’t have that concern, I stood up for what was right but unfortunately have dealt with the reprocussions of doing the right thing and now losing my name and everything I ever stood for. You fuckers knew Evans was guilty of kicking (excessive force) Gettler and you did nothing but get rid of what you saw as the problem, the whistleblower. Gettler himself stated on video tape ( provided for the BOR and in transcripts) he was kicked and even his father stated that his son said he was kicked by Evans when he was released from custody. The video was played for the entire BOR to hear. Tingirides, Eisenberg, and Martella all heard it. You’re going to see what a whistleblower can do when you take everything from him especially his NAME!!!
Look what you did to Sgt. Gavin (now lieutenant) when he exposed the truth of your lying, racism, and PSB cover-ups to frame and convict an innocent man. You can not police yourselves and the consent decree was unsuccessful. Sgt. Gavin, I met you on the range several times as a recruit and as an officer. You’re a good man and I saw it in your eyes an actions.
Self Preservation is no longer important to me. I do not fear death as I died long ago on 1/2/09. I was told by my mother that sometimes bad things happen to good people. I refuse to accept that.
From 2/05 to 1/09 I saw some of the most vile things humans can inflict on others as a police officer in Los Angeles. Unfortunately, it wasn’t in the streets of LA. It was in the confounds of LAPD police stations and shops (cruisers). The enemy combatants in LA are not the citizens and suspects, it’s the police officers.
People who live in glass houses should not throw stones. How ironic that you utilize a fixed glass structure as your command HQ. You use as a luminous building to symbolize that you are transparent, have nothing to hide, or suppress when in essence, concealing, omitting, and obscuring is your forte.
Chief Beck, this is when you need to have that come to Jesus talk with Sgt. Teresa Evans and everyone else who was involved in the conspiracy to have me terminated for doing the right thing. you also need to speak with her attorney, Rico, and his conversation with the BOR members and her confession of guilt in kicking Mr. Gettler. I’ll be waiting for a PUBLIC response at a press conference. When the truth comes out, the killing stops.
Why didn’t you charge me with filing a false police report when I came forward stating that Evans kicked Mr. Christopher Gettler? You file criminal charges against every other officer who is accused and terminated for filing a false police report. You didn’t because you knew I was innocent and a criminal court would find me innocent and expose your department for suppressing the truth and retaliation, that’s why.
The attacks will stop when the department states the truth about my innocence, PUBLICLY!!! I will not accept any type of currency/goods in exchange for the attacks to stop, nor do i want it. I want my name back, period. There is no negotiation. I am not the state department who states they do not negotiate with terrorist, because anybody with a Secret or TS/SCI has seen IIR’s on SIPR and knows that the US state department always negotiates by using CF countries or independent sovereign/neutral country to mediate and compromising.
This department has not changed from the Daryl Gates and Mark Fuhrman days. Those officers are still employed and have all promoted to Command staff and supervisory positions. I will correct this error. Are you aware that an officer (a rookie/probationer at the time) seen on the Rodney King videotape striking Mr. King multiple times with a baton on 3/3/91 is still employed by the LAPD and is now a Captain on the police department? Captain Rolando Solano is now the commanding officer of a LAPD police station (West LA division). As a commanding officer, he is now responsible for over 200 officers. Do you trust him to enforce department policy and investigate use of force investigations on arrestees by his officers? Are you aware Evans has since promoted to Sergeant after kicking Mr. Gettler in the face. Oh, you Violated a citizens civil rights? We will promote you. Same as LAPD did with the the officers from Metro involved in the May Day melee at MacArthur Park. They promoted them to Sergeant (a supervisor role).
No one is saying you can’t be prejudiced or a bigot. We are all human and hold prejudices. If you state that you don’t have prejudices, your lying! But, when you act on it and victimize innocent citizens and fellow innocen officers, than that is a concern.
For you officers who do the job in the name of JUSTICE, those of you who lost honest officers to this event, look at the name of those on the BOR and the investigating officers from PSB and Evans and ask them, how come you couldn’t tell the truth? Why did you terminate an honest officer and cover for a dishonest officer who victimized a mentally ill citizen.
Sometimes humans feel a need to prove they are the dominant race of a species and they inadvertently take kindness for weakness from another individual. You chose wrong.
Terminating officers because they expose a culture of lying, racism (from the academy), and excessive use of force will immediately change. PSB can not police their own and that has been proven. The blue line will forever be severed and a cultural change will be implanted. You have awoken a sleeping giant.
I am here to change and make policy. The culture of LAPD versus the community and honest/good officers needs to and will change. I am here to correct and calibrate your morale compasses to true north.
Those Caucasian officers who join South Bureau divisions (77th,SW,SE, an Harbor) with the sole intent to victimize minorities who are uneducated, and unaware of criminal law, civil law, and civil rights. You prefer the South bureau because a use of force/deadly force is likely and the individual you use UOF on will likely not report it. You are a high value target.
Those Black officers in supervisory ranks and pay grades who stay in south bureau (even though you live in the valley or OC) for the sole intent of getting retribution toward subordinate caucasians officers for the pain and hostile work environment their elders inflicted on you as probationers (P-1′s) and novice P-2′s. You are a high value target. You perpetuated the cycle of racism in the department as well. You breed a new generation of bigoted caucasian officer when you belittle them and treat them unfairly.
Those Hispanic officers who victimize their own ethnicity because they are new immigrants to this country and are unaware of their civil rights. You call them wetbacks to their face and demean them in front of fellow officers of different ethnicities so that you will receive some sort of acceptance from your colleagues. I’m not impressed. Most likely, your parents or grandparents were immigrants at one time, but you have forgotten that. You are a high value target.
Those lesbian officers in supervising positions who go to work, day in day out, with the sole intent of attempting to prove your misandrist authority (not feminism) to degrade male officers. You are a high value target.
Those Asian officers who stand by and observe everything I previously mentioned other officers participate in on a daily basis but you say nothing, stand for nothing and protect nothing. Why? Because of your usual saying, ” I……don’t like conflict”. You are a high value target as well.
Those of you who “go along to get along” have no backbone and destroy the foundation of courage. You are the enablers of those who are guilty of misconduct. You are just as guilty as those who break the code of ethics and oath you swore.
Citizens/non-combatants, do not render medical aid to downed officers/enemy combatants. They would not do the same for you. They will let you bleed out just so they can brag to other officers that they had a 187 caper the other day and can’t wait to accrue the overtime in future court subpoenas. As they always say, “that’s the paramedics job…not mine”. Let the balance of loss of life take place. Sometimes a reset needs to occur.
It is endless the amount of times per week officers arrest an individual, label him a suspect-arrestee-defendant and then before arraignment or trial realize that he is innocent based on evidence. You know what they say when they realize an innocent man just had his life turned upside down?. “I guess he should have stayed at home that day he was discovered walking down the street and matching the suspects description. Oh well, he appeared to be a dirtbag anyways”. Meanwhile the falsely accused is left to pick up his life, get a new, family, friends, and sense of self worth.
Don’t honor these fallen officers/dirtbags. When your family members die, they just see you as extra overtime at a crime scene and at a perimeter. Why would you value their lives when they clearly don’t value yours or your family members lives? I’ve heard many officers who state they see dead victims as ATV’s, Waverunners, RV’s and new clothes for their kids. Why would you shed a tear for them when they in return crack a smile for your loss because of the impending extra money they will receive in their next paycheck for sitting at your loved ones crime scene of 6 hours because of the overtime they will accrue. They take photos of your loved ones recently deceased bodies with their cellphones and play a game of who has the most graphic dead body of the night with officers from other divisions. This isn’t just the 20 something year old officers, this is the 50 year old officers with significant time on the job as well who participate.
You allow an officer, Thaniya Sungruenyos, to attempt to hack into my credit union account and still remain on the job even when Det. Zolezzi shows the evidence that the IP address (provided by LAPFCU) that attempted to hack into my account and change my username and password leads directly to her residence. You even allow this visibly disgusting looking officer to stay on the job when she perjures (lies) in court (Clark County Family Court) to the judge’s face and denies hacking into my personal credit union online account when I attempted to get my restraint order extended. Det. Zolezzi provided the evidence and you still do nothing.
How do you know when a police officer is lying??? When he begins his sentence with, “based on my experience and training”.
No one grows up and wants to be a cop killer. It was against everything I’ve ever was. As a young police explorer I found my calling in life. But, As a young police officer I found that the violent suspects on the street are not the only people you have to watch. It is the officer who was hired on to the department (pre-2000) before polygraphs were standard for all new hires and an substantial vetting in a backround investigation.
To those children of the officers who are eradicated, your parent was not the individual you thought they were. As you get older,you will see the evidence that your parent was a tyrant who loss their ethos and instead followed the path of moral corruptness. They conspired to hide and suppress the truth of misconduct on others behalf’s. Your parent will have a name and plaque on the fallen officers memorial in D.C. But, In all honesty, your parents name will be a reminder to other officers to maintain the oath they swore and to stay along the shoreline that has guided them from childhood to that of a local, state, or federal law enforcement officer.
Bratton, Beck, Hayes, Tingirides, Eisenberg, Martella, Quan, Evans, Hernandez, Villanueva/Gallegos, and Anderson. Your lack of ethics and conspiring to wrong a just individual are over.
Suppressing the truth will leave to deadly consequences for you and your family. There will be an element of surprise where you work, live, eat, and sleep. I will utilize ISR at your home, workplace, and all locations in between. I will utilize OSINT to discover your residences, spouses workplaces, and children’s schools. IMINT to coordinate and plan attacks on your fixed locations. Its amazing whats on NIPR. HUMINT will be utilized to collect personal schedules of targets. I never had the opportunity to have a family of my own, I’m terminating yours. Quan, Anderson, Evans, and BOR members Look your wives/husbands and surviving children directly in the face and tell them the truth as to why your children are dead.
Never allow a LAPPL union attorney to be a retired LAPD Captain,(Quan). He doesn’t work for you, your interest, or your name. He works for the department, period. His job is to protect the department from civil lawsuits being filed and their best interest which is the almighty dollar. His loyalty is to the department, not his client. Even when he knowingly knows your innocent and the BOR also knows your innocent after Christopher Gettler stated on videotape that he was kicked and Evans attorney confessed to the BOR off the record that she kicked Gettler.
The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants-TJ. This quote is not directed toward the US government which I fully support 100%. This is toward the LAPD who can not monitor itself. The consent decree should not have been lifted, ever.
I know your TTP’s, (techniques, tactics, and procedures). Any threat assessments you you generate will be useless. This is simple, I know your TTP’s and PPR’s. I will mitigate any of your attempts at preservation. ORM is my friend. I will mitigate all risks, threats and hazards. I assure you that Incident Command Posts will be target rich environments. KMA-367 license plate frames are great target indicators and make target selection even easier.
I will conduct DA operations to destroy, exploit and seize designated targets. If unsuccessful or unable to meet objectives in these initial small scale offensive actions, I will reassess my BDA and re-attack until objectives are met. I have nothing to lose. My personal casualty means nothing. Just alike AAF’s, ACM’s, and AIF’s, you can not prevail against an enemy combatant who has no fear of death. An enemy who embraces death is a lose, lose situation for their enemy combatants.
Hopefully you analyst have done your homework. You are aware that I have always been the top shot, highest score, an expert in rifle qualifications in every unit I’ve been in. I will utilize every bit of small arms training, demolition, ordnance, and survival training I’ve been given.
Do you know why we are unsuccessful in asymmetrical and guerrilla warfare in CENTCOM theatre of operations? I’ll tell you. It’s not the inefficiency of our combatant commanders, planning, readiness or training of troops. Much like the Vietnam war, ACM, AAF, foreign fighters, Jihadist, and JAM have nothing to lose. They embrace death as it is a way of life. I simply don’t fear it. I am the walking exigent circumstance you created.
The Violence of action will be HIGH. I am the reason TAC alert was established. I will bring unconventional and asymmetrical warfare to those in LAPD uniform whether on or off duty. ISR is my strength and your weakness. You will now live the life of the prey. Your RD’s and homes away from work will be my AO and battle space. I will utilize every tool within INT collections that I learned from NMITC in Dam Neck. You have misjudged a sleeping giant. There is no conventional threat assessment for me. JAM, New Ba’ath party, 1920 rev BGE, ACM, AAF, AQAP, AQIM and AQIZ have nothing on me. Do not deploy airships or gunships. SA-7 Manpads will be waiting. As you know I also own Barrett .50′s so your APC are defunct and futile.
You better have all your officers radio/phone muster (code 1) on or off duty every hour, on the hour.
Do not attempt to shadow or conduct any type of ISR on me. I have the inventory listing of all UC vehicles at Piper Tech and the home addresses of any INT analyst at JRIC and detachment locations. My POA is always POI and always true. This will be a war of attrition and a Pyrrhic and Camdean Victory for myself. You may have the resources and manpower but you are reactive and predictable in your op plans and TTP’s. I have the strength and benefits of being unpredictable, unconventional, and unforgiving. Do not waste your time with briefs and tabletops.
Whatever pre-planned responses you have established for a scenario like me, shelve it. Whatever contingency plan you have, shelve it. Whatever tertiary plan you’ve created, shelve it. I am a walking exigent circumstance with no OFF or reset button. JRIC, DOJ, LASD, FBI and other local LE can’t assist and should not involve themselves in a matter that does not concern them. For all other agencies, do not involve yourself in this capture or recovery of me. Look at the big picture of the situation. They (LAPD) created the situation. I will harm no outside agency unless it is a deadly force/IDOL situation. With today’s budgeting and fiscal mess, you guys can not afford lose several officers to IOD or KIA/EOW. Plus, other officers should not have to take on the additional duties and responsibilities of dead officers. Think about their families, outside agencies, Chiefs/Directors.
Outside agencies and individual officers on patrol. If you recognize my vehicle, and confirm it is my vehicle thru a dmv/want warrant check. It behoves you to respond to dispatch that your query was for information purposes only. If you proceed with a traffic stop or attempt to notify other officers of my location or for backup you will not live to see the medal of valor you were hoping to receive for your actions. Think before you attempt to intervene. You will not survive. Your family will receive that medal of valor posthumously. It will gather dust on the fireplace mantel for years. Then one day, it will go in a shoe box with other memories. Your mother will lose a son or daughter. Your significant other will be left alone, but they will find someone else to fill your void in the future and make them just as happy. Your children, if you have them, will call someone else mommy or daddy. Don’t be selfish. Your vest is only a level II or IIIA, think about it.
No amount of IMINT, MASINT, and ELINT assist you in capturing me. I am off the grid. You better use your feet, tongue and every available DOD/ NON-DOD HUMINT agency, contractor to find me. I know your route to and from home, and your division. I know your significant others routine, your children’s best friends and recess. I know Your Sancha’s gym hours and routine. I assure you that the casualty rate will be high. Because of that, no one will remember your name. You will merely be a DR# and “that guy” who was KIA/EOW or long term IOD/light duty in the kit room. This is exactly why “station 500″ was created. Unfortunately, orphanages will be making a comeback in the 21st century.
If you had a well regulated AWB, this would not happen. The time is now to reinstitute a ban that will save lives. Why does any sportsman need a 30 round magazine for hunting? Why does anyone need a suppressor? Why does anyone need a AR15 rifle? This is the same small arms weapons system utilized in eradicating Al Qaeda, Taliban, and every enemy combatant since the Vietnam war. Don’t give me that crap that its not a select fire or full auto rifle like the DoD uses. That’s bullshit because troops who carry the M-4/M-16 weapon system for combat ops outside the wire rarely utilize the select fire function when in contact with enemy combatants. The use of select fire probably isn’t even 1% in combat. So in essence, the AR-15 semiautomatic rifle is the same as the M-4/M-16. These do not need to be purchased as easily as walking to your local Walmart or striking the enter key on your keyboard to “add to cart”. All the firearms utilized in my activities are registered to me and were legally purchased at gun stores and private party transfers. All concealable weapons (pistols) were also legally register in my name at police stations or FFL’s. Unfortunately, are you aware that I obtained class III weapons (suppressors) without a background check thru NICS or DROS completely LEGALLY several times? I was able to use a trust account that I created on quicken will maker and a $10 notary charge at a mailbox etc. to obtain them legally. Granted, I am not a felon, nor have a DV misdemeanor conviction or active TRO against me on a NCIC file. I can buy any firearm I want, but should I be able to purchase these class III weapons (SBR’s, and suppressors) without a background check and just a $10 notary signature on a quicken will maker program? The answer is NO. I’m not even a resident of the state i purchased them in. Lock n Load just wanted money so they allow you to purchase class III weapons with just a notarized trust, military ID. Shame on you, Lock n Load. NFA and ATF need new laws and policies that do not allow loopholes such as this. In the end, I hope that you will realize that the small arms I utilize should not be accessed with the ease that I obtained them. Who in there right mind needs a fucking silencer!!! who needs a freaking SBR AR15? No one. No more Virginia Tech, Columbine HS, Wisconsin temple, Aurora theatre, Portland malls, Tucson rally, Newtown Sandy Hook. Whether by executive order or thru a bi-partisan congress an assault weapons ban needs to be re-instituted. Period!!!
Mia Farrow said it best. “Gun control is no longer debatable, it’s not a conversation, its a moral mandate.”
Sen. Feinstein, you are doing the right thing in leading the re-institution of a national AWB. Never again should any public official state that their prayers and thoughts are with the family. That has become cliche’ and meaningless. Its time for action. Let this be your legacy that you bestow to America. Do not be swayed by obstacles, antagaonist, and naysayers. Remember the innocent children at Austin, Kent, Stockton, Fullerton, San Diego, Iowa City, Jonesboro, Columbine, Nickel Mines, Blacksburg, Springfield, Red Lake, Chardon, Aurora, and Newtown. Make sure this never happens again!!!
In my cache you will find several small arms. In the cache, Bushmaster firearms, Remington precision rifles, and AAC Suppressors (silencers). All of these small arms are manufactured by Cerberus/Freedom Group. The same company responsible for the Portland mall shooting, Webster , NY, and Sandy Hook massacre.
You disrespect the office of the POTUS/Presidency and Commander in Chief. You call him Kenyan, mongroid, halfrican, muslim, and FBHO when in essence you are to address him as simply, President. The same as you did to President George W. Bush and all those in the highest ranking position of our land before him. Just as I always have. You question his birth certificate, his educational and professional accomplishments, and his judeo-christian beliefs. You make disparaging remarks about his dead parents. You never questioned the fact that his former opponent, the honorable Senator John McCain, was not born in the CONUS or that Bush had a C average in his undergrad. Electoral Candidates children (Romney) state they want to punch the president in the face during debates with no formal repercussions. No one even questioned the fact that the son just made a criminal threat toward the President. You call his wife a Wookie. Off the record, I love your new bangs, Mrs. Obama. A woman whose professional and educational accomplishments are second to none when compared to recent First wives. You call his supporters, whether black, brown, yellow, or white, leeches, FSA, welfare recipients, and ni$&er lovers. You say this openly without any discretion. Before you start with your argument that you believe I would vote for Obama because he has the same skin color as me, fuck you. I didn’t vote in this last election as my choice of candidate, John Huntsman, didn’t win the primary candidacy for his party. Mr. President, I haven’t agreed with all of your decisions but of course I haven’t agreed with all of your predecessors decisions. I think you’ve done a hell of a job with what you have been dealt and how you have managed it. I shed a tear the night you were initially elected President in 2008. I never thought that day would occur. A black man elected president in the U.S. in my lifetime. I cracked a smiled when you were re-elected in 2012 because I really didn’t think you were going to pull that one off. Romney, stop being a sore loser. You could’ve exited graciously and still contributed significantly to public service, not now. Mr. President, get back to work. Many want to see you fail as they have stated so many times previously. Unfortunately, if you fail, the U.S. fails but your opponents do not concern themselves about the big picture. Do not forget your commitment to transparency in your administration. Sometimes I believe your administration forgets that. America, you will realize today and tomorrow that this world is made up of all human beings who have the same general needs and wants in life for themselves, their kin, community, and state. That is the freedom to LIVE and LOVE. They may eat different foods, enjoy different music, have different dialects, or speak a second language, but in essence are no different from you and I. This is America. We are not a perfect sovereign country as we have our own flaws but we are the closest that will ever exist.
Unfortunately, this is not the first time an authoritative figure has lied on me.
Mr. Freid, assistant principal, Cypress HS. Remember when you lied to my mother and the police officer in your office about stating that you never stated to me in a private conversation that you know the theft suspect (Miranda) stole my watch. Let me refresh your memory. A physical education teachers assistant, a student, stole the list of combination codes to peoples lockers, from the P.E. teacher. That student then opened many of those lockers and stole students personal property. My watch was taken in that multi theft an I reported it to you. A week later you discovered that the theft suspect was Paul Miranda, a student. You stated to me in private that you know for a fact he stole my property. When I attempted to retrieve my property from the suspect. Campus security was called and you lied and stated that you never stated to me that you “know he stole my watch”. You sat there and lied to their faces right in front of me. You said it with such a deliberate, stern face. I never forgot that and was not surprised when 13 years later I was lied on again in the BOR by Teresa Evans. maybe you can confess to your family at the very least in the private of your own home. After that, contact my mother and apologize for lying to her in 1996.
If possible, I want my brain preserved for science/research to study the effects of severe depression on an individual’s brain. Since 6/26/08 when I was relieved of duty and 1/2/09 when I was terminated I have been afflicted with severe depression. I’ve had two CT scans during my lifetime that are in my medical record at Kaiser Permanente. Both are from concussions resulting from playing football. The first one was in high school, 10/96. The second was in college and occurred in 10/99. Both were conducted at Kaiser Permanente hospitals in LA/Orange county. These two CT scans should give a good baseline for my brain activity before severe depression began in late 2008.
Sure, many of you “law enforcement experts and specialist” will state, “in all my years this is the worst……..”, Stop!!! That’s not important. Ask yourselves what would cause somebody to take these drastic measures like I did. That’s what is important.
To my friends listed below, I wish we could have grown old together and spent more time together. When you reminisce of our friendship and experiences, think of that and that only. Do not dwell on my recent actions the last few days. This was a necessary evil that had to be executed in order for me to obtain my NAME back. The only thing that changes policy and garners attention is death.
Luis Sanchez, greatest friend, Marine officer, aviator, and an even better father and husband. I Couldn’t have had a better big brother than you. Your spoken wisdom was always retained by me, you old salty Mustang. You sternly told me that no matter what I accomplish I will always be a ni#%er in many individuals eyes. At the time, I did not comprehend your words. I do now. I never forgot the quote you state below. I love you bro.
I never saw a wild thing feel sorry for itself. A small bird will drop frozen dead from a bough without ever feeling sorry for itself. –D.H. Lawrence
Jason Valadao, greatest friend, Naval officer, aviator, Great Father, husband, doctor, and even better human being. I always strived to live my life parallel to your similar values and personal disciplines. Danika is lucky to have found a man like yourself, and you are fortunate to have married an irrefutable imperfect woman. Always focus on your IMMEDIATE family as they are the ones who have loved you unconditionally and always been their to support you in difficult times. I always lived my life as WWJD (what would Jason do). Danika, take care of this guy. Jason, I’m sorry I missed your wedding and you had to find another best man. I’m sorry my predicament with the department stopped me from watching you and Danika get married and arguing with you about issues that were insignificant when I was really angry at the LAPD for what they did to me. I’m deeply sorry and I love you guys.
James Usera, great friend, attorney, father, husband, and the most cynical/blatant/politically incorrect friend a man can have. Best quality about you in college and now is that you never sugar coated the truth. I will miss our political discussions that always turned argumentative. Thanks for introducing me to outdoor sports like fishing, hunting, mudding, and also respect for the land and resources. Us city boys don’t get out much like you Alaskans. You even introduced me to PBR. A beer, that when you’re a poor college student is completely acceptable to get buzzed off of. I’m sorry I’ll never get to go on that moose and bear hunt with you. I love you bro.
Kinta Smith, greatest friend, accountant, entrepreneur, and even better Human being. You are probably the most well balanced person I’ve ever met and the most driven for success. In college, and after graduation, I was inspired by your personal drive. Never settle. When you make your first million, promise me you won’t forget to enjoy it a bit. I know your first reaction will be to invest it somewhere else. Spend a little, just a little. I love you bro.
Jason Young, great friend, entrepeneur, husband and father. You showed me the importance of fatherhood and friendship. Love you bro.
Suzie Clark Cunningham, Kassandra Harrell, Melinda Yates, Cal Jackson, Ryan Smith, The Rebelledos, The Banks, Ben Bines, J. Work, Bill O’neill, Jeremy Fletcher, and Rob Harriston.
You guys were all important and very special to me. Don’t be angry with me. I missed some of your weddings and unfortunately, some of your funerals. This was a necessary evil.
Some say it is my fault that I was terminated. Yes, DDX, I remember you stating this to me in an angry fit. You said that I should have kept my mouth shut about another officer’s misconduct. Maybe you were right. But I’m not built like others, it’s not in my DNA and my history has always shown that. When you view the video of the suspect stating he was kicked by Evans, maybe you will see that I was a decent person after all. I told the truth. It still hurt that you abandoned me in my time of need. I hope you’re happy, that’s all I ever wanted for you.
Sgt. Leonard Perez, you meant well but you should have known with your time on the job that the department would attempt to protect someone like Evans because of her time on the job, personal friendships, and ethicity. I’m not angry with you, but you should have known as an IA investigator.
Sgt Maggie Faust LPPD, Ofcr John Thomas LPPD (ret), and Chief Eric Nunez LPPD, your guidance and mentoring as a young police explorer was second to none and invaluable as a young man, police officer, and naval officer. Sgt Faust, you forewarned me long ago about joining LAPD as they were “different” and operated differently from other modern law enforcement agencies. I now know it was your humbleness and respect for all who wear the badge and protect their communities that you didn’t just express what you wanted to say, that they lack values and basic ethics as law enforcement officers. Chief Nunez, your fucking awesome. Thanks for the long talks over the years when I was an explorer, college student, Naval officer, and Police officer. Your are a great leader and carry your heart on your sleeve. Your son will be a great Air Force officer with the upringing you provided. John, what can I say? Your just an awesome person and my first exposure to what law enforcement was really about was on our ride alongs. Your realistic approach and empathetic approach to treating all people as humans first is something I carried with me daily. Thank you, every one of you.
Dr. Funahashi, thank you for the superb surgery you performed on my knee on 7/98 in Irvine, CA. I never had the opportunity to thank you for allowing me to live a life free of knee joint pain. Thank you.
CM1 Bissett (Ret.), I learned more from you about leadership than most of my own commanders. You lived by a strict ethos of get it done, and get it done right. I wanted to attend your retirement, I really did. But because of my predicament I was unable to. Hope you and Ritchie are still together. I’ve always held you in high regard.
Sgt Maj. Kenneth “Rock” Rocquemore USMC, Thank you for the intense instruction and mentorship and time spent forging me into a never quit officer. You were challenging as a DI. You made sure the vicious and intense personality I possess was discovered. On a lighter note….Don’t feel humbled you never broke me. I made it a personal goal to never give up years before. The Corp is lucky to have you at the front. Your leadership is essential and needed for all marines, especially staff NCO’s and mentorship and advisement to company grade officers. You are the epitome of a US marine and never forget that.
I thank my friends for the awesome shared experiences. I thank the unnamed women I dated over my lifetime for the great and sometimes not so great sex.
It’s kind of sad I won’t be around to view and enjoy The Hangover III. What an awesome trilogy. Todd Phillips, don’t make anymore Hangovers after the third, takes away the originality of its foundation. World War Z looks good and The Walking Dead season 3 (second half) looked intriguing. Damn, gonna miss shark week.
Mr. Vice President, do your due diligence when formulating a concise and permanent national AWB plan. Future generations of Americans depend on your plan and advisement to the president. I’ve always been a fan of yours and consider you one of the few genuine and charismatic politicians. Damn, sounds like an oxymoron calling you an honest politician. It’s the truth.
Hillary Clinton. You’ll make one hell of a president in 2016. Much like your husband, Bill, you will be one of the greatest. Look at Castro in San Antonio as a running mate or possible secretary of state. He’s (good people) and I have faith and confidence in him. Look after Bill. He was always my favorite President. Chelsea grew up to be one hell of an attractive woman. No disrespect to her husband.
Gov. Chris Christie. What can I say? You’re the only person I would like to see in the White House in 2016 other than Hillary. You’re America’s no shit taking uncle. Do one thing for your wife, kids, and supporters. Start walking at night and eat a little less, not a lot less, just a little. We want to see you around for a long time. Your leadership is greatly needed.
Wayne LaPierre, President of the NRA, you’re a vile and inhumane piece of shit. You never even showed 30 seconds of empathy for the children, teachers, and families of Sandy Hook. You deflected any type of blame/responsibility and directed it toward the influence of movies and the media. You are a failure of a human being. May all of your immediate and distant family die horrific deaths in front of you.
Chris Matthews, Joe Scarborough, Pat Harvey, Brian Williams, Soledad Obrien, Wolf Blitzer, Meredith Viera, Tavis Smiley, and Anderson Cooper, keep up the great work and follow Cronkite’s lead. I hold many of you in the same regard as Tom Brokaw and the late Peter Jennings. Cooper, stop nagging and berating your guest, they’re your (guest). Mr. Scarborough, we met at McGuire’s pub in P-cola in 2002 when I was stationed there. It was an honor conversing with you about politics, family, and life.
Willie Geist, you’re a talented and charismatic journalist. Stop with all the talk show shenanigans and get back to your core of reporting. Your future is brighter than most.
Revoke the citizenship of Fareed Zakaria and deport him. I’ve never heard a positive word about America or its interest from his mouth, ever. On the same day, give Piers Morgan an indefinite resident alien and Visa card. Mr. Morgan, the problem that many American gun owners have with you and your continuous discussion of gun control is that you are not an American citizen and have an accent that is distinct and clarifies that you are a foreigner. I want you to know that I agree with you 100% on enacting stricter firearm laws but you must understand that your critics will always have in the back of their mind that you are native to a country that we won our sovereignty from while using firearms as a last resort in defense and you come from a country that has no legal private ownership of firearms. That is disheartening to American gun owners and rightfully so.
The honorable President George H.W. Bush, they never give you enough credit for your successful Presidency. You were always one of my favorite Presidents (2nd favorite). I hope your health improves greatly. You are the epitome of an American and service to country.
General Petraeus, you made a mistake that the majority of men make once, twice, or unfortunately many times in a lifetime. You are human. You thought with your penis. It’s okay.I personally believe you should have never resigned and told your critics to shove it. You only answer to two people regarding the affair, your wife and children, period. I hope you return to government service to your country as it is visibly in your DNA.
General Colin Powell, your book “My American Journey” solidified my decision to join the military after college. I had always intended to serve, but your book and journey motivated me. You are an inspiration to all Americans and influenced me greatly.
To all SEA’s (senior enlisted advisers), you are just as important if not a greater viability to large and small commands. It’s time you take a more active role in leading your enlisted and advising officers. These are not your twilight years or time to relax. You can either strengthen the tip of the spear, or make it brittle. You decide.
Pat Harvey, I’ve always thought you carried yourself professionally and personally the way a strong black woman should. Your articulation and speech is second to none. You are the epitome of a journalist/anchor. You are America.
Ellen Degeneres, continue your excellent contribution to entertaining America and bringing the human factor to entertainment. You changed the perception of your gay community and how we as Americans view the LGBT community. I congratulate you on your success and opening my eyes as a young adult, and my generation to the fact that you are know different from us other than who you choose to love. Oh, and you Prop 8 supporters, why the fuck do you care who your neighbor marries. Hypocritical pieces of shit.
Westboro Baptist Church, may you all burn slowly in a fire, not from smoke inhalation, but from the flames and only the flames.
Tebow, I really wanted to see you take charge of an offense again and the game. You are not a good QB by todays standards, but you are a great football player who knows how to lead a team and WIN. You will be “Tebowing” when you reach your next team. I have faith in you. Get out of that circus they call the Jets and away from the reality TV star, Rex Ryan, and Mark Rapist Sanchez.
Christopher Walz, you impressed me in Inglorious Basterds. After viewing Django Unchained, I was sold. I have come to the conclusion that you are well on your way to becoming one of the greats if not already and show glimpses of Daniel Day Lewis and Morgan Freeman-esque type qualities of greatness. Trust me when I say that you will be one of the greatest ever.
Jennifer Beals, Serena Williams, Grae Drake, Lisa Nicole-Carson, Diana Taurasi, N’bushe Wright, Brenda Villa, Kate Winslet, Ashley Graham, Erika Christensen, Gabrielle Union, Isabella Soprano, Zain Verjee, Tamron Hall, Gina Carano, America Ferrara, Giana Michaels, Nene, Natalie Portman, Queen Latifah, Michelle Rodriguez, Anjelah Johnson, Kelly Clarkson, Nora Jones, Laura Prepon, Margaret Cho, and Rutina Wesley, you are THE MOST beautiful women on this planet, period. Never settle, professionally or personally.
Dave Brubeck’s “Take Five” is the greatest piece of music ever, period. Hanz Zimmer, William Bell, Eric Clapton, BB King, Bob Marley, Sam Cooke, Metallica, Rob Zombie, Nora Jones, Marvin Gaye, Jay-Z, and the King (Louis Armstrong) are musical prodigies.
Jeffrey Toobin and David Gergen, you are political geniuses and modern scholars. Hopefully Toobin is nominated for the Supreme Court and implements some damn common sense and reasoning instead of partisan bickering. But in true Toobin fashion, we all know he would not accept the nomination.
John and Ken from KFI, never mute your facts and personal opinions. You are one of the few media personalities who speak the truth, even when the truth is not popular. I will miss listening to your discussions.
Bill Handel, your effin awesome. For years I enjoyed your show.
Anthony Bourdain, you’re a modern renaissance man who epitomizes the saying “too cool for school”.
Larry David, Kevin Hart, the late Patrice Oneal, Lisa Lampanelli, Chris Rock, Jerry Seinfeld, Louis CK, Dave Chapelle, Jon Stewart, Wanda Sykes, Dennis Miller, and Jeff Ross are pure geniuses. I’m a big fan of all of your work. As a child my mom caught me watching Def Jam comedy at midnight when I should have been asleep. Instead of scolding me, the next night she let me stay up late and watch George Carlin, Eddie Murphy and Richard Pryor comedy specials with her for hours. My sides were sore for days.
Larry David, I agree. 72-82 degrees is way to hot in a residence. 68 , degrees is perfect.
Cyclist, I have no problem sharing the road with you. But, at least go the fucking speed limit posted or get off the road!!! That is a feasible request. Livestrong you fraudulent assholes.
Cardinal Mahoney, you are in essence a predator yourself as you enabled your subordinates to molest multiple children in the church over many decades. May you die a long and slow painful death.
If you continuously followed me while I was walking at dusk/night I would confront you as well. Too bad Trayvon didn’t smash your skull completely open, Zim. While Trayvon’s body erodes to bones 6 feet under, Zimmerman has put on no less than 40 pounds while out on bail. Zimmerman was arrested for battery on a Peace officer and avoided jail/prison because he completed a diversion program. Thats a history of being an asshole. Zimmerman couldn’t get hired by a LE agency because of poor credit/and a history of violence/restraining orders with women. So what does he do? Designate himself, neighborhood watch captain and make complaints to his city council about the horrible work ethic and laziness of the officers patrolling his neighborhood. Good one Zim. How classy that your father attempts to use his veterans status “disabled veteran” during your bail hearing but doesn’t state what his disability percentage is. Prior service personnel know it can be 5% disability to 100%. You and your attorneys always avoid mentioning your fathers occupation as a magistrate/judge because I’m sure he’s utilized his position to get you out of way more jams then the public has discovered and that your family is not indigent. Oh, tell your wife to stop perjuring herself in court.
Anonymous, you are hated, vilified, and considered an enemy to the state. I personally view you as a culture and a necessity that brings truth to a cloaked world. Forge ahead!
Charlie Sheen, you’re effin awesome.
My opinion on women in combat MOS’, Designators, Rates, and AFSC’s. I wish all of you who attempt to pursue combat occupational roles the greatest success in completing, graduating, and qualifying in their respective schools/courses. Many want to see you fail. Remember, everyone of you is a pioneer. There was a time when they didn’t allow blacks to fight the good fight. This is your civil rights. Don’t quit!!!
It’s time to allow gay service member’s spouses to utilize the same benefits that all heterosexual dependents are eligible for. Medical, Dental, Tricare, Deers, SGLI, BX, Commissary, Milstar, MWR, etc. Flag officers, lets be honest. You can’t really give a valid argument to as why gays shouldn’t be eligible as every month a new state enacts laws that allow same sex marriage.
LGBT community and supporters, the same way you have the right to voice your opinion on acceptance of gay marriage, Chick Fil-A has a right to voice their beliefs as well. That’s what makes America so great. Freedom of expression. Don’t be assholes and boycott/degrade their business and customers who patronize the locations. They make some damn good chicken! Vandalizing (graffiti) their locations does not help any cause.
Mr. Bill Cosby, you are a reasonable and talented man who has spoken the truth of the cultural anomalies within the black communities that need to change now. The black communities’ resentment toward you is because they don’t like hearing the truth or having their clear and evident dirty laundry aired to the nation. The problem is, the country is not blind nor dumb. They believe we are animals. Do not mute your unvarnished truthful speech or moral compass. Blacks must strive for more in life than bling, hoes, and cars. The current culture is an epidemic that leaves them with no discernible future. They’re suffocati

It Finally Happened...
Obama did something with which I absolutely agree:
Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta said in his Senate testimony Thursday that he and Chairman of Joint Chiefs of Staff Martin Dempsey supported arming Syria's rebels, but President Obama rejected the idea.
Official #Iran Broadcasting Channel Claims Syrian Air Raids On Israel
[Internet Haganah]Seriously.The Mad Mullah's have totally gone off the deep end or fell into the well or something.
And why would they lie?
So far this farce is only known to be on the IRIB Italian radio website, but it may be elsewhere as well[...]
My [Aaron's...ed] copy of the video:
Florida Democrats Oppose Bill That Protects Constitutional Rights And Equality
How could anyone oppose a bill that does nothing but protect the Constitutional rights of persons involved? Florida Democrats do (emphasis mine):
The Florida House Civil Justice Subcommittee has passed HB 351, formally titled "Application of Foreign Law in Certain Cases" but more popularly referred to as an "Anti-Sharia Bill." The bill is modeled after legislation proposed by activist groups who claim Islamic law, which discriminates against women and non-Muslims, is stealthily encroaching upon the American judicial system.
The bill prohibits the enforcement by Florida courts of contracts, mediation agreements, or other voluntary settlements if those agreements are based "on any foreign law, legal code, or system that does not grant the parties affected by the ruling or decision the same fundamental liberties, rights, and privileges guaranteed by the state Constitution or the United States Constitution."
The measure, sponsored by Rep. Larry Metz, R-Yalaha, passed on a party-line vote, with all nine Republicans supporting it and the panel's four Democrats opposing.

Just Another False Flag Operation
Federal agents arrested a California man this morning in a terror sting after he allegedly tried to detonate a car bomb at an Oakland bank as part of a Taliban plot.Again its proven that the Domestic Muj are not the brightest bulb in the room, if you catch my drift.
The FBI said the explosive device that Matthew Aaron Llaneza, 28, of San Jose tried to use was not operable and posed no threat, and that Llaneza's Taliban contact was actually an undercover agent.
According to authorities, in November Llaneza met with a man he believed was linked to the Taliban and the mujahideen in Afghanistan. At their initial meeting, Llaneza allegedly proposed a car-bomb attack against a bank and making the bombing look like the work of anti-government militias. According to the criminal complaint, Llaneza wanted to spark a government crackdown and a right-wing backlash that would lead to civil war. [emphasis mine]

Out: Potemkin Villages
In: Potemkin ... Fighter Planes
The first sign that your new "stealth fighter jet" might just be an elaborate hoax meant to scare the Great Satan? You designate it an "F" for fighter, which is the English term for ... um ... fighter. Then, instead of using the Arabic alphabet so people in your country can read it, you put a big letter "F" in the Latin script on the side of "plane" so only outsiders can.
The only problem? The Great Satan isn't buying any of it:
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad unveiled the Qaher F313 at a Tehran hangar last week and called it “one of the most advanced” aircraft in the world...Kind of makes you wonder what else the Iranians are faking?

Leftist Media Praises Obama For Telling The Truth About Skeet Shooting; Ignores The Fact He Lied About Benghazi
When the White House released a photograph of President Obama skeet shooting, the folks over at MSNBC were giddy with excitement and praise:
But when Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta and Joint Chiefs of Staff General Martin Dempsey testified before the Senate Armed Services Committee yesterday, it was revealed that President Obama had lied about his activities on the night Ambassador Chris Stevens and four other Americans were dragged from the U.S. embassy in Benghazi and slaughtered by an insurgent mob:
The attack on the consulate had already been under way for 90 minutes at that time. Neither the president nor anyone else from the White House called afterwards to check what was happening; the Commander-in-Chief had left it "up to us," said Panetta.
Panetta's testimony directly contradicts President Obama's own claim to have issued "three direectives" as soon as he learned "what was going on" in Benghazi. As he told a Denver reporter in October:I gave three very clear directives. Number one, make sure we are securing our personnel and that we are doing whatever we need to. Number two, we are going to investigate exactly what happened and make sure it doesn't happen again. Number three, find out who did this so we can bring them to justice.
That same claim was subsequently repeated by other Democrats, including Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel, who came to the president's defense. But if those directives were indeed given--and proof has never been produced--they were given long after the attack, not while the attack was going on, during which time the president did nothing.
Obama lied, Americans died. But the media is too impressed with his skeet shooting skills to notice.

"So Called American Citizen": Is That Another Name For Traitor?
We’re still trying to wrap our heads around Democratic Rep. John Conyers’ suggestion to start calling illegal immigrants “out of status” new Americans, and now Sen. Dianne Feinstein has thrown us another curve. While questioning CIA director nominee John Brennan at his confirmation hearing today, Feinstein referred to [AQAP's..ed]radical Muslim cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, who was killed in a Predator drone strike in 2011, as a “so-called American citizen.”I guess that means the North Carolina Muslim, Samir Khan, was also a "so-called American citizen" too? Sammy went to Yemen, joined AQAP and was proud to 'denounce' his citizenship, as he pointed out in "Inspire":
Therefore, I am proud to be a traitor in America’s eyes just as much as I am proud to be a Muslim; and I take this opportunity to accentuate my oath of allegiance (bai`yah) and the mujahidin of the Arabian Peninsula’s bai`yah to the ferocious lion, the champion of jihad, the humble servant of God, my beloved Shaykh, Usama bin Ladin, may Allah protect him. Verily, he is the man that has shook the thrones of the tyrants of the world. We pledge to wage jihad for the rest of our lives until either we implant Islam all over the world or meet our Lord as bearers of Islam. And how reputable, adventurous and pleasurable is such a life compared to those who remain sitting, working from nine to five?He was with Awlaki when he was droned, so what? We killed 2 al-Qaeda bitches, period.
Clint Watts says it best: Americans: If You Don’t Want To Get Killed By A Drone, Avoid These 4 Things!
Don’t join al Qaeda outside the United States[...]Related:
Don’t become a Senior Leader of al Qaeda overseas[...]
Don’t actively plan to kill or actually attempt to kill Americans [..]
Don’t make it difficult to be arrested[...]

AFP: Once his reputation was of a feared fighter, an American-born extremist who left small town Alabama to wage war alongside Al-Qaeda-linked Somali Islamists and who called on other foreigners to join. Today, Omar Hamami -- better known as Abu Mansoor al-Amriki or "the American" -- has split from the insurgents, who want to kill him. He cuts a forlorn figure: homesick, stuck somewhere in Somalia, and telling anyone who will listen about his apparently doomed career path.Doomed! Doomed I say!

Note to Taliban: If You're Going to Wear a Burka for a Disguise, It Might Be Best if You Get One Long Enough to Cover the Cammo Pants and Combat Boots
Would-be Fed Bomber Pleads Guilty
I'll just note that Nafi's plea in this case is very much related to the current drone strike controversy. Nafi came to America with plans for making bombs which he intended to use to kill civilians here in the homeland.
Where did he get the plans? From an al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) magazine edited by US citizen Samir Khan. He also had videos of AQAP's spiritual leader Anwar al-Awlaki, also an American, encouraging terrorist acts against the US.
This would be the same Samir Khan who was killed as he sat next to that same Anwar al-Awlaki by the dreaded drone over a remote patch of Yemen's desert. The death of the two Americans is what started the current controversy over the "extra-judicial killing" of US citizens.
A lot of those who are currently wringing their hands over the so-called "legality" of killing members of al Qaeda who happen to be Americans forget that there is a specific context to which those Americans have been killed. Namely, the people who's Fourth Amendment rights have been allegedly "violated" were: 1) members of al Qaeda; 2) trying to get fellow-travelers to kill Americans; 3) providing them with specific means to carry out attacks; 4) were in an area of the world where it was not possible to send in the FBI to arrest them.
Also, a note to Nafi: Your cornhole, it's going to sting a little:
Earlier this afternoon, at the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York, Quazi Mohammad Rezwanul Ahsan Nafis, 21, pleaded guilty to attempting to detonate what he believed to be a 1,000 pound bomb at the New York Federal Reserve Bank on Liberty Street in lower Manhattan’s financial district.
The charge to which Nafis pleaded guilty, attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction, carries a sentence of up to life imprisonment. The guilty plea was announced by Loretta E Lynch, United States Attorney for the Eastern District of New York; Lisa Monaco, Assistant Attorney General for National Security; George Venizelos, Assistant Director in Charge, FBI, New York Field Office; and Raymond W Kelly, Commissioner, New York City Police Department (NYPD).
According to today’s guilty plea and documents filed in the case, Nafis, a Bangladeshi national, traveled to the United States in January 2012 intending to fight violent jihad.
Nafis attempted to recruit multiple individuals to form a terrorist cell inside the United States. He brought with him digital media containing bomb-making instructions and speeches by Anwar al-Awlaki, a now deceased leader of al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP). Nafis also actively sought out al Qaeda contacts within the United States to assist him in carrying out an attack. Unbeknownst to Nafis, one of the individuals he attempted to recruit was a source for the FBI. During their subsequent investigation, FBI agents and NYPD detectives working with the Joint Terrorism Task Force closely monitored Nafis as he attempted to implement his plan.
Nafis proposed several targets for terrorist attack, including a high-ranking U.S. official and the New York Stock Exchange. Ultimately, Nafis decided to conduct a bombing operation against the New York Federal Reserve Bank. In a written statement he devised to claim responsibility for the terrorist bombing of the Federal Reserve Bank on behalf of al Qaeda, Nafis wrote that he wanted to “destroy America” and that he believed the most efficient way to accomplish this goal was to target America’s economy. In this statement, Nafis also included quotations from “our beloved Sheikh Osama bin Laden” to justify the killing of women and children that Nafis expected would result from the attack.
During the investigation, Nafis came into contact with an FBI undercover agent who posed as an al Qaeda facilitator. At Nafis’s request, the undercover agent supplied Nafis with 20 50-pound bags of purported explosives. Nafis then worked to store the material and assemble the explosive device for his attack. Nafis purchased components for the bomb’s detonator and conducted surveillance for his attack on multiple occasions in New York City’s financial district in lower Manhattan. Throughout his interactions with the undercover agent, Nafis repeatedly asserted that the plan was his own and was the reason he had come to the United States.
On October 17, 2012, the day of the planned attack, Nafis met the undercover agent and traveled in a van to a warehouse located in the Eastern District of New York. While en route, Nafis explained to the undercover agent that he had a “Plan B” that involved conducting a suicide bombing operation in the event that the attack was about to be thwarted by the police. Upon arriving at the warehouse, Nafis assembled what he believed to be a 1,000-pound bomb inside the van. Nafis and the undercover agent then drove to the New York Federal Reserve Bank. During this drive, Nafis armed the purported bomb by assembling the detonator and attaching it to the explosives. Nafis and the undercover agent parked the van next to the New York Federal Reserve Bank, exited the van, and walked to a nearby hotel. There, Nafis recorded a video statement to the American public which he intended to release in connection with the attack. During this video statement, Nafis stated, “We will not stop until we attain victory or martyrdom.” Nafis then repeatedly, but unsuccessfully, attempted to detonate the bomb, which had been assembled using the inert explosives provided by the undercover agent. JTTF agents arrested Nafis immediately after he attempted to detonate the bomb.
“As today’s guilty plea shows, the defendant came to this country not to further his studies but to advance the goals of jihad. Once here, he devoted his energies to refining his plan to disrupt the U.S. economy and kill Americans and attempting to recruit others to join him. Ultimately, he resolved to commit mass murder in downtown Manhattan through an attack on the New York Federal Reserve Bank, a symbol of America’s economy. With diligence and determination, Nafis attempted to carry out his plan in the name of al Qaeda. We are committed to protecting the safety of all Americans, including the hundreds of thousands who work in New York’s financial district. We will not wait for our enemies to attack us before using the tools at our disposal to discourage, disrupt, and, ultimately, detain them with lengthy terms of incarceration,” stated U.S. Attorney Loretta E. Lynch. “I would like to thank our partners at the FBI, NYPD, United States Secret Service, Immigration and Customs Enforcement/Homeland Security Investigations, New York State Police, the other agencies who participate in the Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF), and the Department of Justice’s National Security Division for their hard work on this important investigation. I would also like to thank the security teams at the New York Federal Reserve Bank and the New York Stock Exchange for their assistance.”
“Rezwanul Nafis today admitted that he came to America for the purpose of conducting terrorist attacks, that he tried to recruit others into his plans, and that he ultimately concocted and attempted to carry out an attack against the New York Federal Reserve Bank. Thanks to a coordinated undercover law enforcement effort, his plot was thwarted. I applaud the many agents, analysts, and prosecutors who helped bring about today’s successful outcome,” said Lisa Monaco, Assistant Attorney General for National Security.
FBI Assistant Director in Charge George Venizelos stated, “Nafis admits he came to the U.S. intent on committing jihad, assembled a bomb for that purpose, and attempted to detonate it. Thankfully, among those who stood between him and his goal were a source and an undercover FBI agent. In order to stop those committed to terrorism from conspiring with others who would actually help them, we will continue to use all available tactics, including the use of undercover agents. There is no more important mission.”
NYPD Commissioner Kelly stated, “Nafis is just one of the more recent examples of individuals charged in terrorist plots against targets in New York City. There have been 16 plots against the city that we know of since the World Trade Center Twin Towers were destroyed in 2001. Time and again, individuals intent on making a violent terrorist statement select New York City as their venue. That’s why, as in many other cases, the NYPD cooperated closely with federal prosecutors and the Joint Terrorism Task Force of the FBI to bring Nafis to justice.”
The defendant faces a statutory maximum sentence of life. His sentencing is scheduled for May 30, 2013, before Chief Judge Carol B. Amon, at the federal courthouse in Brooklyn.
The government’s case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys James P. Loonam and Richard M. Tucker, with assistance from Trial Attorney Bridget Behling of the Justice Department’s Counterterrorism Section.
German Job Centers Now Referring Hot Young Girls for Brothel Work
A 19-year-old German woman was left appalled after receiving a letter offering work in a brothel by her local job centre. Good looks, however, were a prerequisite for the position.Read the rest and take special note that the government employee made sure to evaluate whether the potential brothel worker was "suitable" for the job by calling them up on the phone.
The unnamed teen had been looking for work since last November and was thrilled when the job centre finally sent her an offer last week. But serving drinks at a nude bar at one of Bavarian city Augsburg's biggest brothels, the Colosseum, was not exactly what she had in mind.
Calling them up. Right. I'm sure that's all they did. Call them.

Yes, We Should Kill American al Qaeda
A great piece over at NRO the other day from David French echoing my own thoughts on why we can, and should, continue to kill members of al Qaeda. The fact that they are American citizens is secondary to the fact that they are members of a group openly at war with the US:
If all this sounds harsh, or “chilling,” or scary, that’s because it is. War is hell. And there is no constitutional doctrine that exempts American citizens from that hell when they choose to wage war against their own country. Any other legal doctrine will create yet another perverse terrorist incentive: Can an American terrorist now be a unique human shield to prevent direct attack? An American al-Qaeda member would suddenly become the most deadly and dangerous of terrorists — enjoying unique legal protections not enjoyed by, say, Americans who wore German uniforms in World War II.Read the rest.
Please also read my post on the subject if you haven't already. There is a lot of disinformation coming out about the program, and I think it clears a few things up. The foremost being that the memo does not authorize, as some are claiming, the use of drones against US citizens anywhere and for any cause.
Hat tip: Hot Air's headline thing
CNN Vigorously Disseminating CAIR Talking Points
An interesting CNN interview with Pam Geller from Atlas Shrugs. The clip was posted by Geller to show what CNN cut from the interview, which is significant. Everything after the 9 minute mark was cut from the aired segment.
But I found most interesting is what wasn't cut. If you listen, notice CNN's Erin Burnette forcefully injects CAIR Unindicted Co-Conspirator talking points about Islam. She insists Islam is a peaceful religion in which a very small minority of fanatics have misunderstood. She states, as though a fact, the term "jihad" means an inner struggle to better one's self. And she refuses to even call the brutal beheaders of Daniel Pearl "savages."
If this is the media's vision of Islamic jihad, it's no wonder they fight so desperately to defend radical Islamic terrorists.
Rand Paul Speech: Radical Islam "no small minority"
Wow, just .... wow. He's not saying that radical Islam is a majority around the world -- and he's right -- but he does say it's a majority in certain countries. Moreover, he correctly identifies that ideas considered "mainstream" in some Islamic circles are quite radical. Such as the notion that blasphemy or apostasy ought to be illegal.
Watch the whole thing. He's not just taking on PC notions of the struggle ahead, he's also taking on the notion that fighting radical Islam requires open warfare. Instead, he's advocating a "containment" strategy. The kind of strategy we used in the Cold War against the Soviet Union.
I'm going to need to let this sink in before I respond.

Update: Sen Graham asked: Was any aircraft or any personnel sent to Benghazi during the attack? Any DOD asset sent at all? Gen. Dempsey: No.
Panetta and Dempsey said they spoke to Obama one time the night of Benghazi attack and that Obama never requested an update. Hence, no images of Obama in the 'war room'? Wow.
Via Sen Ayotte. (Who asked some excellent questions): "POTUS never asked what assets we had available to help on night of #Benghazi attack".

Cornhole Watch: Quazi Mohammad Rezwanul Ahsan Nafis
No idea why this Asian Male wanted to blow stuff up, he was probably part of a "* general hate group".
NEW YORK (Reuters) - A Bangladeshi man is expected to plead guilty Thursday to attempting to blow up the New York Federal Reserve Bank with what he believed to be a van packed with explosives, according to court documents.So sad, so very sad.
Quazi Mohammad Rezwanul Ahsan Nafis, 21, was arrested on October 17 after pulling up to the Federal Reserve and attempting to detonate what he believed to be a 1,000-lb (454-kg) bomb hidden in a van.
...Nafis attempted to recruit others to his plot, and discussed his plans over social media sites such as Facebook, the complaint said. He claimed he was in contact with al Qaeda operatives overseas, and actively sought out new al Qaeda connections in the United States, the complaint said.
One of the individuals he brought onboard was an undercover agent working for the FBI..
*Hey last time I checked they had no Islamists on the map, so its an improvement even though they can't actually call it by its name, lest they get a Fatwa.
It's not just you. Tuning out Facebook for weeks at a time is commonplace, according to the Pew Internet and American Life Project, which found that a majority of the current Facebook users it surveyed have at one time or another tired to the point of avoiding the social-networking site.I've previously expressed thoughts regarding the time-wasting character of Facebook. My time is important to me. I don't like to waste it.
Pew used Princeton Survey Research Associates International to conduct the actual telephone interviews with a representative sample of 1,006 adults in the U.S.
To be fair, though, there are periods when a person has to pass time and Facebook works well in staving off boredom. Examples include those who are recuperating in a full-body cast, those on a long bus ride, and those who are plagued with lengthy digestive evacuation experiences.

Attempted Assassination on Blasphemer in Denmark: "The Bullet Flew Past My Ear"
You'll recall that Lars Hedegaard was found guilt of "hate speech" in Denmark. You know, saying things like Islam isn't a religion of peace. Which will get you killed if you're not careful.
A writer and outspoken critic of Islam narrowly escaped being shot dead after he opened his door to a would-be assassin posing as a delivery man at his home in Denmark."Foreign" .... one can only wonder what that is a euphemism for?
The gunman rang the doorbell of 70-year-old Lars Hedegaard's apartment in Frederiksberg, Copenhagen, under the pretext of delivering a parcel, but when the writer opened his front door the hitman pulled out a weapon and fired a shot that just missed Mr Hedegaard's head.
According to Mr Hedegaard, who described how the bullet 'flew past' his right ear, said the sniper fled after the writer punched him in the face causing him to drop his gun[...]
Police in Copenhagen confirmed they were searching for the suspect, described as a 'foreign' man aged between 20 and 25.

Robert Leslie Deak, a major backer of Imam Feisel Abdul Rauf’s nonprofit, the Cordoba Initiative, says he discovered that the religious leader had allegedly used the funds for “his personal use” including “a luxury sports car, personal real estate, entertainment, lavish trips, and vacation” with an unidentified woman named Evelyn Adorno, the court papers, filed late yesterday, claim.That last $20 million was slated to go combating "anti-Islamic sentiment". You know, like the widespread Islamophobic notion that imams like Rauf spend lavish amounts on their mistresses.
Deak, of Scarsdale and the Deak Family Foundation, is suing Rauf for $20 million.
Several Miami-Dade police officers were caught ignoring 911 calls:
Officer Socarras, Officer Jose Huerta and their Sergeant Jennifer Gonzalez were videotaped drinking coffee at a Casa Larios when an emergency call came in with an alert about an unconscious 5-month-old, police said in investigation records obtained by NBC 6.
Socarras was dispatched to the scene and despite being with his sergeant, he continued drinking his coffee. Nine minutes later he was cleared from the call, according to police.
If they ignore a call about an injured child, what other calls might they ignore?

Damn Right We Have the Right to Kill Americans ... IN AL QAEDA
Drudge shows he's been hanging out w/ Alex Jones again
Compare my headline to the headline over at NBC. Notice the difference? By adding three words the implications of the story change drastically.
If you tell people: Do you know that the Obama administration thinks it's okay to kill Americans without a trial?
Of course you'd be rightfully worried. The implication being that Obama believes he can kill you. Do not ask for whom the drones buzz, they buzz for thee.
However, just add three little words: Do you know that the Obama adminstration thinks it's okay to kill Americans in al Qaeda without a trial?
Kind of changes all of the implications of the story.
Except for paranoids on either fringe then who gives a damn what the nationality of the guy sitting next to Ayman al Zawahiri is? Bomb the mo-fo!
Which is why I'm getting increasingly annoyed at my friends on the right who take the headline and then run with it in paranoid fashion.
If you think it's unconstitutional or immoral to kill a member of a terrorist organization living abroad then you and I have very different readings of the Constitution and very different sets of moral standards.
Moreover, it's just basic common sense that in warfare you don't stop to ask the person you're about to shoot for a copy of their passport. Who gives a rat's ass if bin Laden was Saudi or if he was born in Colorado?
Please, go read the report. Nowhere in it is there even a smidgen of a hint that drones could be used against Americans ... in America.
The memo in question sets up a three tiered test for when it's okay to kill an American living -- and this is a direct quote from the memo -- "in a foreign country".
1) He must be an immanent threat. By immanent, we don't mean the threat is immediate. What we mean is that the person is involved in operations that will go forward unless he is killed. In other words, we don't have to wait for a suicide bomber to get on the airplane before we kill him.
2) Capture is infeasible. This means that a terrorist living in France will be treated differently than a terrorist living in Mali. The major difference being that the French police are perfectly capable (assuming they have the backbone) of arresting a suspected terrorist. In the hinterlands of Mali, not so much.
Infeasibility also does not mean impossible. Of course it's possible to capture a terrorist living in a cave in Tora Bora, but if the lives of American servicemen are put in great jeopardy, then drone the assmaggot. That's all the memo says.
If you've seen Zero Dark Thirty -- and I highly recommend it -- one of the key moments is when the protagonist, Maya, tells the SEAL Team members that they've been chosen to be "canaries in the coal mine", putting their lives at risk because the SOBs in the White House thought the political situation was too risky for a drone strike. This went counter to Maya's recommendation which was to, "Bomb the mother-f*cker".
3) The strike must be consistent with the laws of war. Which is just another way of saying we don't bomb the whole city of Abotabad just because we know bin Laden is there.
You really do need to read the whole memo. And stop with the slippery-slope arguments. There's nothing in the memo that says this Administration or any other Administration has the authority to do "extrajudicial killings" on US soil. Or on French soil. Or on English soil.
Such killings are only lawful in the context of a Congressionally authorized war against al Qaeda on the field of battle. The fact that our war against al Qaeda and allied forces is unconventional is too obvious to argue. And if you really think that we need judicial oversight on the field of battle -- which is what the ACLU is arguing in their lawsuit against the US government -- then the President ceases to be Commander-in-Chief and is unconstitutionally supplanted by the "least dangerous branch" of government.
And once the judicial branch has control over military decisions, then it ceases to be the least dangerous branch.
PS-- and we do have a control mechanism for overseeing the President's decisions. It's called an election. Where one candidate proposes that he would be a better Commander in Chief than the other candidate. In our nation's history, there has been such an election every four years -- even during times of war. Remember, Lincoln was opposed in 1864 by former General George B. McLellan based largely on the idea that he would be a better Commander in Chief than the man who fired him. Dewey vs. Roosevelt in 1944 during WWII. Humphrey vs. Nixon in 1968 during Vietnam. The list goes on and on.
If you think Obama's decisions on running the war against al Qaeda aren't good, then you had your chance to change that. It was called the election 2012 and you, and I, lost that one.
Courts are not intended to oversee Presidential decisions about war and peace. And just because we don't like -- or trust -- Obama to make the right decision, doesn't mean we should now be clamoring for judicial oversight of the most fundamental duty a President has.
Judge in Chicago Officially Insane
Well, we all knew they were insane, now we have proof:
A Democratic Party-backed judge who won re-election in November while facing battery charges was found not guilty Monday — by reason of insanity.The worst part? After being indicted she won reelection:
The insanity verdict could aid the judge's effort to return to the bench.
Bar associations have recommended since 2000 that Brim be tossed from her $182,000-a-year job, but voters have kept returning her to the bench.Chicago: when every one is corrupt, no one is.

Report: France, Germany Pressure Bulgaria into NOT Naming Hezbollah as Behind Bus Bombing
Unbelievable! Oh, wait. Did I say unbelievable? I meant, very believable. As in -- exactly what we've learned to expect from Old Europe:
The Commentator has learned that both the German and French governments have both piled pressure on the Bulgarians to "use nuanced language" in the report, for fear that Bulgaria may be the focus of future attacks if Hezbollah is openly named.So, if this info is right then Germany and France don't want Bulgaria to call out Hezbollah by name as behind the bus bombing for fear that ... Hezbollah will attack again?
The Bulgarian government, it has been stated by leading sources, has been informed through ‘back channels’ that there will be serious repercussions from Hezbollah if it is to publically and overtly name the group. This information comes despite strong pressure from the US government to make clear that the bombing was indeed the work of the Lebanese terrorist outfit.
Hezbollah: call them terrorists and they will keel you!
Isn't the clear implication here that terrorism does work? That at least some countries in Europe can be scared into policy decisions favored by the terrorists for fear of violence.
I think it does.
Of course, there is another explanation here. Namely, that France and Germany don't consider blowing up a bus full of Jews as "terrorism".
Nah, that could never happen.
FBI Rescues 5 Year Old Hostage, Kills Hostage Taker
FBI, F*CK Yeah: Coming to Save the Motherf*cking World Again!
Tears. The real kind, not the crocodile bullshit that we get from our betters in DC. Yeah, I'm like that.
This kind of story makes me proud to be an American in the most human way possible:
The 65-year-old retired truck driver who held a 5-year-old autistic boy hostage in a bunker after killing an Alabama school bus driver last week is dead and the child is safe, the FBI said Monday afternoon.I'm not exactly sure how they did it, just that they did it. Yes, they are that good.
FBI agents entered the underground bunker in Midland City, Ala., and rescued the boy at 3:12 p.m. CT (4:12 p.m. ET) after deciding he was in danger from his captor, Jimmy Lee Dykes, said FBI Special Agent in Charge Steve Richardson.
I think this calls for a little Team America World Police. And not in any ironic way.

Because kicking a guy's ass sometimes is the right response.
So, if you meet any of these people who responded to Kyle's death with shouts of glee, you might want to remember Kyle's example.
And if the local DA takes umbrage, just remember the "fighting words" defense. Some words are so vile that simply saying them are cause enough for violence. IMHO, laughing at the death of a true American hero rises to that level.

Red on Red in Philippines: MILF Attacks Abu Sayyaf
When MILFs attack, everyone wins!
A Muslim rebel group said Monday it attacked Abu Sayyaf gunmen after the al-Qaida-linked militants refused to free hostages, sparking fierce jungle clashes that left up to 22 combatants dead in the southern Philippines.I'm always encouraged when our proxies fight the bad guys. But when we can get other bad guys to go after the bad guys? It's win-win. Worst case scenario: a bad guy is going to get killed.
There was no word on whether the hostages were hurt in the fighting, but they remained in the grip of the Abu Sayyaf militants, police said.
Rebel commander Khabir Malik of the Moro National Liberation Front [MILF], which has an autonomy deal with the government, said his group decided to attack the Abu Sayyaf in the rugged mountains of Patikul town in southern Sulu province after negotiations collapsed on the release of several of its foreign hostages, including a Jordanian TV journalist and two European men who have been held since last year.

Re-Reconquista: Spain Adopts Islamic Death Penalty for Blasphemy
So, in Spain if you blaspheme Mohammad then you may have your residency revoked and deported to a country that kills blasphemers? Who needs an Islamic reconquista when the Spanish government does all the hard work for you?
Imran Firasat, a Muslim-turned-Christian from Pakistan who currently resides in Spain, is facing down a Spanish government that seems determined to punish him for his film, The Innocent Prophet, about the prophet Muhammad. The Spanish government has: 1) revoked his Spanish residency and now threatens to extradite him; and 2) initiated a prosecution for violating a Spanish hate speech law. The Spanish authorities have justified their revocation of his residency on the grounds that he is "threatening national security with the production of this video."....Read the rest.
The most disturbing part of this Spanish campaign against Mr. Firasat is that the Spanish government really should know better than to push for Imran Firasat's deportation from Spain. As the government is aware, if he is sent to Pakistan, he may face death for his frequent blasphemy.

Former Navy SEAL Sniper Killed By One Of Our Own
Chris Kyle was known as America's most lethal sniper. He holds the record for the most confirmed enemy kills. He died doing what he loved doing most, helping his fellow soldiers.
Today Chris Kyle was shot and killed at a shooting range at the Rough Creek Lodge in Texas, murdered along with a second individual.
Chris had been volunteering his time to help Marine Corps veterans suffering from PTSD and mentoring them. Part of this process involved taking these veterans to the range where one of them snapped and killed Chris and his neighbor for reasons that remain unknown at this time. The perpetrator then stole Chris’ vehicle in an attempt to escape but we have received word that the police have since arrested him.
A little more about Chris:
SEAL Team 3 Chief Chris Kyle served four combat tours in Operation Iraqi Freedom and elsewhere. For his bravery in battle, he was awarded two Silver Stars, five Bronze Stars with Valor, two Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medals, and one Navy and Marine Corps Commendation. Additionally, he received the Grateful Nation Award, given by the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs. Following his combat deployments, he became chief instructor for training Naval Special Warfare Sniper and Counter-Sniper teams, and he authored the Naval Special Warfare Sniper Doctrine, the first Navy SEAL sniper manual.
You can get Chris Kyle's book at Amazon.

Ironically, the article was to educate readers about "assault" rifles. It was in the printed edition, so, naturally, the Chicago Tribune decided to issue a correction online.

Saudi Cleric Issues Fatwa: Babies Should Wear Burkas So They Won't Be So Tempting
("A little too much skin exposed there, kid...")
(Hat Tip: Gateway Pundit)
From al Arabiya News:
A Saudi cleric has called for all female babies to be fully covered by wearing the face veil, commonly known as the burka, citing reports of little girls being sexually molested.
In a TV interview on the Islamic Al-Majd TV, which seems to date back to mid-last year, Sheikh Abdullah Daoud, stressed that wearing the veil will protect baby girls. The Sheikh tried to back his assertion with claims of sexual molestation against babies in the kingdom, quoting unnamed medical and security sources.[...]
Sheikh Mohammad Al-Jzlana, former judge at the Saudi Board of Grievances, told Al Arabiya that Dauod's ruling was denigrating to Islam and Shariah and made Islam look bad.
I think Islam started to look bad when Muhammad married a six year old. And I'm sure the beheadings, the rapes, and legitimized child abuse doesn't make it look so hot either. If you think this one fatwa is what makes it look bad, you haven't been paying attention.
Acid Attacks Debut In UK
But this acid attack wasn't against a Muslimah who rejected a suitor. It was against a beautiful, young woman who refused to cover up.
A young woman was facially disfigured and almost lost her eyesight in a horrific unprovoked acid attack on the streets of London.
Naomi Oni, 20, was on her way home from work when an unknown attacker dressed in a niqab threw a chemical substance at her leaving the retail assistant with severe burns on her head, neck, arms, legs and body.
These shocking images have now been released by Ms Oni in an appeal for help to catch the attacker whose identity was concealed behind the Muslim women's dress which completely covers the face apart from the eyes.
Ms Oni, who is employed by Victoria's Secret at the Westfield Stratford shopping centre, was five minutes from home in Dagenham, east London when she was attacked on December 30.

Savage Freed After Paying Blood Money For Sadistic Rape & Torture Of A Child
A few days ago, I posted THIS STORY about a Saudi father who raped and tortured his 5 year old daughter to death. He has been released after paying the equivalent of $50,000 in blood money. Had Lama been a boy, the blood money amount would have been doubled, as males are worth more under Islamic law. More gory details about his crime (emphasis mine):
Fayhan al-Ghamdi, a former drug addict who rose to national prominence as an Islamic television preacher, was arrested last November and charged with brutally raping and torturing 5-year-old Lama al-Ghamdi to death. According to a medical report, the little girl had been tortured with whips, electric shocks and an iron. She had broken arms, a broken back and a fractured skull. She died on October 22.
According to social worker Randa al-Kaleeb, Lama had been raped "everywhere." Hospital staff told the girl's mother that her "daughter's rectum had been torn open and the abuser had attempted to burn it closed," Agence France-Presse reports.
It wasn't the first time that al-Ghamdi abused his daughter. Last April, he was accused of torturing her so badly that her skull was fractured and she sustained brain damage.
Al-Ghamdi was jailed for a short period, but the judge ruled that the prosecution could only seek to compel him to pay "blood money" to Lama's mother. That, combined with time served, led to the killer's freedom.
In Saudi Arabia, a US ally, people are executed by public beheading for apostasy (renouncing Islam), blasphemy, witchcraft, sorcery, adultery, homosexuality and prostitution. But under Sharia law, men cannot be executed for killing their wives or children.
Sharia law forbids retaliation for murdering offspring.
Mona Eltahawy shed crocodile tears for the girl, but still thinks its offensive to call people like the girl's father a SAVAGE.

Face of Evil
Now They Tell Us: Al Qaeda Not Harmed by bin Laden Death
Killing bin Laden on May 1, 2011, has not seen a decline in al Qaeda’s influence in the region. CNN reported on Oct. 12 that al-Zawahri, a Muslim Brotherhood hard-liner who succeeded bin Laden as al Qaeda’s leader, stated that “Libyans should move quickly to establish Shariah, the Islamic law.” He called on Algerians “to follow in the footsteps of your brothers in Libya and Tunisia and revolt against your tyrant,” and he also reaffirmed the jihad against the United States.Yeah, I know its Reynold's schtick, nevertheless I'm going to file this under things they should have told us before the election.
When the Arab Spring began, Moammar Gadhafi warned “that al Qaeda would take over Libya if he is overthrown.” Since Gadhafi’s assassination by Islamist militias, large caches of weapons have fallen into the hands of al Qaeda-linked Islamists embedded in Libya. They include al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM); Ansar al-Sharia; Libyan Islamic Fighting Group; Ansar Dine; Boko Haram; and Movement for Oneness and Jihad in West Africa. These Islamists are dangerous and well-armed, and many were involved in the attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi that killed Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and three other Americans.
Osama bin Laden’s fatwa is still in place, and jihadists will continue to attack U.S. embassies, consulates and our economic interests. We were warned that the Islamists wanted to take control and rule under Shariah law. The U.S. decision makers had a myopic view of the vast Muslim-populated desert region, thinking that democratic institutions would follow regime change.
US Embassy in Ankara Turkey Attacked
UPDATE: Radical Leftists Suspected
No Americans Hurt
A suspected suicide bomber detonated an explosive device at the entrance of the U.S. Embassy in the Turkish capital on Friday, killing himself and one other person, officials said.It would fit with the recent pattern of attacks against US interests by various al-Qaeda aligned groups. Syrian Jihadists Jabhat al-Nusra and al-Qaeda in Iraq are in the closest proximity.
U.S. Ambassador Francis Ricciardione told reporters that a guard at the gate was killed in the 1:15 p.m. blast, and a Turkish citizen was wounded.
The bomb appeared to have exploded inside the security checkpoint at the side entrance of the embassy, but did not do damage inside the embassy itself. Footage showed that the door had been blown off its hinges and debris littered the ground and across the road. An Associated Press journalist saw a body in the street in front of an embassy side entrance.
There was a threat of new terrorist attacks against the US, France and others posted yesterday on the Ansar al-Mujahideen forum as well. At the time I dismissed it as propaganda, however this attack does not appear to have met the expectations there as the planned attacks predicted to be strong, serious, alarming, earth-shattering, shocking and terrifying..
So, expect more attempts and hope they fail also fail to meet al-Qaeda's hopes and expectations. And also, you know, we might want to give a little payback.
The other thought that crosses my mind is that it might be Iranian or retaliation for Israel's failure to tolerate Syrian missiles being transferred the Hezbollah.
We'll update when we know know more.

UPDATE by Rusty: The news out of Turkey is that a member of the radical leftist Revolutionary People's Liberation Party-Front was behind the ... suicide-bombing? That's a tactic one usually associates with one of Allah's shaheeds hoping for 72 virgins, not some godless communist who expects oblivion.
The suspect is Ecevit Şanlı who was involved in a previous bombing of a Turkish police station, but who was later released from jail when he was diagnosed with Wernicke Korsakoff syndrome. Yeah, I had to look that up, apparently Wernicke Korsakoff's causes "vision changes, ataxia and impaired memory." So, maybe in addition to hating the capitalist-imperialists pigs he just had nothing much of a life going for him?
I still haven't heard who the victim of the bombing was. Given that the bomb went off outside the embassy, it's likely that person killed was a Turkish security guard.
UPDATE II by Rusty: As suspected, it was a Turkish guard who was killed:
A suicide bomber detonated an explosive device on the outside perimeter of the U.S. Embassy in the Turkish capital Friday, killing himself and an embassy guard in a terrorist attack whose motives are under investigation...
According to U.S. military sources, the other individual killed in the Ankara attack was a Turkish national. All U.S. staff are safe at this time, though the U.S. consulate in Turkey has advised Americans in the country against visiting U.S. missions for the time being.
Obama Foreign Policy! US Says Taliban Can be Part of Afghan Government as Taliban Murder 21 Outside of Mosque
I keep hearing how awesome Hillary Clinton was as Secretary of State and about her "legacy". This will be her legacy:
US Ambassador to Pakistan, Richard Olson, has said the United States is ready to open the door for talks between the Afghan government and the Taliban, adding that the Afghan Taliban could be part of Afghanistan's future if they met conditions to ensure long-term peace and stability in the war-torn country.Peace? Are you sure he didn't mean piece? You know, a piece of a Shia here, a piece of an infidel there?
An explosion in a market in northwestern Pakistan on Friday killed at least 21 people and wounded 33 in what police described as a suicide bombing...Sure, let's make peace with these people. What could possibly go wrong?
Abu Omar, a Taliban commander in the neighboring tribal region of North Waziristan, said in a telephone interview that the attack was in revenge for the killing on Thursday of a Sunni cleric....
Friday’s explosion occurred just after Friday Prayer as worshipers filed out of a Sunni mosque and a nearby Shiite place of worship, police officials said. “People were coming out of the mosque when the explosion occurred,” said one officer in Hangu, speaking on the condition of anonymity.
Another police official in Hangu said a suicide bomber had detonated his explosives. While Shiites were the likely target, the dead included people from both Islamic sects, he said. “There are Sunnis and Shias killed.”
Obama's diplomacy: speak loudly and carry a tiny stick.
