 WASHINGTON — A House Intelligence Committee investigation of the Sept. 11, 2012, attacks on U.S. outposts in Benghazi concludes that while the Central intelligence Agency had properly secured its compound in the Libyan city, the State Department knew its security precautions were inadequate at the U.S. Special Mission where U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens died.

 A two-year investigation by the Republican-controlled House Intelligence Committee has found that the CIA and the military acted properly in responding to the 2012 attack on a U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, and asserted no wrongdoing by Obama administration appointees.

 The convert to Islam who fatally shot a Canadian soldier guarding that country’s national war memorial Wednesday morning before attacking Parliament and being fatally shot by its sergeant-at-arms was a bureaucrat’s son who displayed possible signs of mental illness and had a connection to a homegrown jihadist who has traveled to Syria, according to a […] Read More →

Bomb or Occupy — or Neither?

Victor Davis Hanson,   Wars usually end only when the defeated aggressor believes it would be futile to resume the conflict.

Obama Ignores Congress Again to Launch Syria Attack With No Legal Basis

President commits impeachable offense.  President Barack Obama has once again flagrantly violated the U.S. constitution by launching air strikes on Syrian territory under the justification of an illegal framework and with no Congressional input whatsoever.

Rand Paul rips Obama’s Syria plan

McCain, Kerry, Hillary, interventionists, anti-war hypocrites, you name it. Knowing you guys as I do, it’s the attack on Maverick that you really want to see. Skip to 41:00 or so. He doesn’t mention him by name, of course, but I think we’re all on the same page when we hear the term “moss-covered.” Damn: […] Read More →

Obama is defying the Constitution on war

George Will,  The United States last declared war many wars ago, on June 5, 1942, when, to clarify legal ambiguities during a world conflagration, it declared war on Hungary, Romania and Bulgaria. Today’s issue is not whether to declare war but only whether the president should even seek congressional authorization for the protracted use of force against the Islamic […] Read More →
