The so called “administration” has only 60 Syrian fighters in training after more than a year and $500,000,000. Talk about mixed results. The administration has 7000 in waiting, but they can’t find people who are clear of terrorist ties. It goes back to my contention that we need American forces to defeat ISIS and let the others occupy. At this rate, we don’t need patience. ISIS will fail because they all die of old age.
Schools all over Delmarva, in all three Delaware Counties, in Virginia, and in Maryland had bomb threats near the same time through automated calls yesterday. There are reports of another round to different schools today. There are other security threat reports that we are receiving outside of schools that as of now are unconfirmed. We know their are active terror cells on Delmarva. They hacked WBOC and, there was an attack on this site following an article on radical Islam. Is this the beginning of probing to gauge our responses? We need to take this threat seriously. Even if it is a prankster, we need to stop them ASAP to avoid disrupting the lives of our people. We need to support our local police by giving them all the information that we have. What is out of the ordinary that you have seen? If you don't want to be to involved, at least call crime stoppers. The life you Read more
It has only been two weeks since President Obama ceased being my commander in chief, but at least I waited that long for my critique. The administration sending 5 Taliban Commanders back to Afghanistan is too much to bear without at least a short break. Even worse is allowing them to disstabilize an ally. As always, I make no great claim at expertise. I do make a claim at having an interest in War on Terror having spent so many years involved. I claim the proverbial blood, sweat, and tears interest. The Iraqi theater is one where I also have some investment. I am even more disturbed about the fact that 10 months after we started pin prick bombing of "ISIL" that we have no complete strategy. It is not as if the Pentagon has not presented several. The problem is that the administration refuses to acknowledge that American combat troops and special forces need to be on the ground for Read more
“I know some in Washington would like us to start leaving Iraq now. To begin withdrawing before our commanders tell us we’re ready would be dangerous for Iraq, for the region and for the United States. It would mean surrendering the future of Iraq to al Qaeda. It would mean that we’d be risking mass killings on a horrific scale. It would mean we allowed the terrorists to establish a safe haven in Iraq to replace the one they lost in Afghanistan. It would mean increasing the probability that American troops would have to return at some later date to confront an enemy that is even more dangerous.” President George W. Bush in 2007
In a landmark ruling, Appeals Court Judge Richard Leon ruled that President Barack Obama's surveillance policies, acted upon by the National Security Agency, ordering the mass collection of Americans' telephone data, "almost Orwellian" and likely a violation of the Constitution, according to Yahoo News reporter Oliver Knox. Surveillance programs have been under attack since their existence was revealed and the extent of their reach left many Americans horrified. The Judge dealt a blow to the governments contention that such surveillance is necessary to thwart future terrorist attacks. "Founding Father would likely be "aghast" at the NSA's activity, said Leon. "The government does not cite a single instance in which analysis of the NSA's bulk metadata collection actually stopped an imminent attack, or otherwise aided the Government in achieving any objective that was time-sensitive," Read more
