Obama’s “Green Line” for Syria (and other autocrats).

“We have been very clear to the Assad regime, but also to other players on the ground, that a red line for us is we start seeing a whole bunch of chemical weapons moving around or being utilized. That would change my calculus. That would change my equation. . . . We’re monitoring that situation very carefully. […]

This just in: Terrorists break laws.

Seriously, folks, you can’t make this stuff up. Report: Suspects had no gun licenses By Mike Lillis – 04/21/13 09:27 PM ET The two suspects in the Boston Marathon bombings were not licensed to have the firearms they used in several shootouts with police on Friday, Reuters reported Sunday night. The news that the suspects […]

Did Tamerlan kill his “only friend”?

Boy, the UK Mail Online has had some interesting scoop reporting this week. Here’s another: Boston bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev may have murdered his ‘only American friend’ in an unsolved triple killing two years ago, it emerged today. Brendan Mess had his ‘throat slit’ alongside two other men in a Massachusetts apartment in 2011 in […]

Imagine if Bush had done this.

[The Blaze] The Saudi national who was initially detained and then ruled out as a suspect in the Boston Marathon terrorist attack had been flagged on a terror watch list and was granted a student visa without being properly vetted, sources have told me. A source close to the investigation revealed that Abdul Rahman Ali […]

The FBI has a bridge to sell you.

[Washington Times] The FBI did not know that Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the older Boston Marathon bombing suspect who was killed following a firefight last week, took a six-month trip to Russia because his name was misspelled, Sen. Lindsey Graham said. Sen. Graham and the FBI must think us all really, really stupid. It’s as though the […]

Never underestimate the stupidity of the college professor.

“This said, the mortuary pictures of the older brother of the two are extremely disturbing, raising questions as to whether the Boston Police Department captured him [Tamerlan Tsarnaev] with too much force.” — City University of New York Professor Ruth O’Brien. This statement proves that one can have higher education and be stupid at the […]

WH: Actually, drones strikes are legal and effective counterterrorism policy!

Remember the tried and true age-old adage: When Republican presidents use drones to kill terrorists they’re “shredding the constitution,” but when Democrat presidents do the same it’s “legal,” “ethical,” and “wise.” A confidential Justice Department memo concludes that the U.S. government can order the killing of American citizens if they are believed to be “senior […]

Actually it does matter, Hillary.

Here’s a great retort by the Washington Post’s Erik Wemple to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s jaw-dropping question “What difference, at this point, does it make?” whether the Bengazi murders were a result of a spontaneous protest gone violent or a premeditated terrorist attack. No matter your view of the media’s role in Benghazi; no […]

CIA vet on Zero Dark Thirty.

Great commentary. Read it all. Jose A. Rodriguez Jr. is a 31-year veteran of the CIA. He is the author of “Hard Measures: How Aggressive CIA Actions After 9/11 Saved American Lives,” written with former CIA spokesman Bill Harlow, who also contributed to this essay. It is an odd experience to enter a darkened room […]

Benhoozi?

Here’s Mark Steyn: Someone at the highest level of the United States government made the decision to abandon American consular staff to their fate and cede U.S. sovereign territory to an al-Qaeda assault team — and four out of five Sunday news shows don’t think it’s worth talking about. In the smoking ruins of that […]
