WASHINGTON — The House Benghazi Committee missed a self-imposed deadline to issue a report “before summer,” the latest setback for a probe that has gone on for more than two years and drawn scorn from Democrats who say its primary goal is to undermine Hillary Clinton’s presidential bid. The panel’s chairman, Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C.,

Trump’s Islam Narrative is Just Reality, Islam really does hate us.

Daniel Greenfield,  Former NSA head Michael Hayden recently joined a chorus of Trump’s critics blasting him for offending Muslims. “The jihadist narrative is that there is undying enmity between Islam and the modern world, so when Trump says they all hate us, he’s using their narrative,” he said.
