White House now accuses fellow Afghan vets of “swiftboating” Bergdahl

You knew it was coming, didn’t you? “Every [White House] aide I’ve talked to said they expected there to be controversy involving the decision to release five members of the Taliban from Gitmo, and the fact that this would then escalate that debate, which has been simmering for a good five years, which is what […]

The Bowe Bergdahl release just doesn’t add up

Warner Todd Huston has already posted about the bizarre prisoner exchange of Bowe Bergdahl, but there are so many strange circumstances surrounding this story that I think another post is justified.

For the Boston Bombers, the President is Just Putting On Ayers …

I have listened, with fascination and horror, to the President’s words since the Boston bombing. I found them a dispassionate litany of the obvious that did little to inspire or encourage. Among them, he noted: … on days like this there are no Republicans or Democrats – we are Americans … …that all Americans stand with the […]

How’s that Arab Spring thingy working out for you Mr. President?

Hate to tell you Mr. President but Islam is at war. With us. Not that you’d notice, or admit it if you did. The media has been in a frenzy since the bombs went off in Boston, hoping for a “white guy” to be the bomber. At best, a “tax protestor” white guy. Well Karma […]

A Minnesota TV news story perpetrated a perfect example of one-sided “news” coverage especially where it concerns the politically correct treatment of two, innocent, doe-eyed Muslims who, gosh darn it, just want to be loved like you and me. Naturally, the TV station does not report the truth that the two Muslims they laud actually […]

What exactly were we doing in Benghazi anyway?

As our Lady Liberty reported yesterday, General Petraeus’ alleged mistress, Paula Broadwell, told an audience last month that the American CIA was using the Benghazi annex of the US Consulate to detain al-Qaeda prisoners from Libya as well as from other areas in Africa.  The CIA has denied these claims of course, but Fox News […]

“If we find out we that there was a big breakdown, and somebody didn’t do their job, they’ll be held accountable.“ President Obama, speaking to MSNBC’s Morning Joe hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski in New Hampshire, inadvertently gives votes another reason to make him a one term President.

The Benghazi attack represented A Clear And Present Danger

… to President Obama’s Nobel laureate legacy. Sadly, as I have been watching events and information unfold this week, that is the only conclusion I can draw. How dangerous was it to give a Nobel Peace Prize to a man who had, at the time of acceptance (itself an act of supreme arrogance and hubris) […]

Obama: Assassination Of Ambassador Chris Stevens In Libya “Not Optimal”

Only in the media bubble that Barack Obama has surrounded himself in would an appearance on a The Daily Show with Jon Stewart be considered a hard-hitting interview. To Stewart’s credit he at least brought up the assassination of U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans in what we now know was a pre-planned […]
