Happy Birthday, well wishes, and thanks to both institutions for their vigilant defense of liberty at home and abroad. "Hope is no basis for a defense policy." - Margaret Thatcher
Before 9/11, there was 10/12. The USS Cole bombing, eleven years ago today, should have taught us all that the jihadists' war on the infidel West started a long, long time ago. The Navy will remember in Norfolk today. Have you forgotten? Too many have: Remember: The flame of Muslim outrage is eternal. Never forget:... Read More

Let's hope it really happened this time. In December 2009, Reuters reported that al Qaeda recruiter and Fort Hood jihadist spiritual advisor Anwar al Awlaki was killed in an airstrike in Yemen. He counseled the 9/11 jihadists, hailed Fort Hood gunman Nidal Hasan as a "hero," reportedly inspired both the Christmas day would-be underwear bomber... Read More
Scroll for updates... Earlier today, a lone gunman -- described as Mexican-born with a "valid U.S. passport" -- barreled into a shopping mall parking lot, stormed an IHOP, and marched to the back where a table full of uniformed Nevada National Guardsmen were dining. The Guard's headquarters are about four miles from the restaurant. Eduardo... Read More
What a day, huh? Late-breaking news tonight is that Taliban "supreme leader" Mullah Omar may be dead. Or not. In an uncanny turn of current events, the Taliban reportedly claims its phones have been hacked: No word on whether any graphic photos accompanied the "hacked" messages. In related news: New Study Asserts Taliban Faction Closely... Read More
New Dehli 2005. Mumbai 2006. Mumbai 2008. And now, more bloody horror for India again: Three near-simultaneous explosions have shaken India's commercial capital Mumbai (Bombay), police say.

Never forget. June 6, 1944, 160,000 Allied troops landed along a 50-mile stretch of heavily-fortified French coastline to fight Nazi Germany on the beaches of Normandy, France. General Dwight D.

Here's how Colorado Springs kicked off Memorial Day weekend. This military town knows there's much more to the holiday than BBQs and pool parties. To borrow a phrase, remember the reason for the season. Let me know what you're doing in your neighborhoods and hometowns. Fort Carson dedicates 22 names added to Fallen Soldiers' Memorial
From the "Never Let a Crisis Go To Waste" files: Sen. Chuck Schumer hit the Sunday talk show circuit to push for the TSA-ization of Amtrak. Because, you know, that's working out so well. The Mouth of the Empire State has proposed expansion of the no-fly list to encompass a new "no-ride list" (prompting legions... Read More
Adnan Shukrijumah has been a fugitive since 9/11, was rumored to have crossed the Mexican border, and was indicted last year in the NYC/Zazi bombing plot. Pakistan may be harboring him, as noted earlier this week. And there is also -- of all places -- a Shukrijumah tie to Trinidad and Guyana. An Al Qaeda... Read More
Today's syndicated column summarizes the week in bin Laden narrative bungles. The Navy SEALs did what they were told to do. It's President Obama's civilian messengers who can't tell a straight story and do right by our heroes who risked their lives. The White House Keystone Kops aren't just squandering a public opinion bump. They're... Read More
Lots of photojournalism headlines today. While the White House capitulated on the OBL death photos, Reuters was apparently willing to fork over money for pictures of bodies at the bin Laden compound other than bin Laden. The story and photos are here. Question: Who did Reuters pay? The camera man was reportedly a "Pakistani security... Read More

Scroll for updates... Remember how we were waiting for the pic of the century yesterday? Looks like it'll be a century before anyone ever sees it. In the least shocking news of the day, the most transparent president ever has decided not to release the bin Laden photos/video. MSNBC'er Chuck Todd just tweeted the news:... Read More
My latest syndicated column was inspired by Five for Fighting singer/songwriter John Ondrasik's tweet this morning suggesting that President Obama invite former President Bush to join him at Ground Zero on Thursday.

Since 9/11, homeland/national security officials have been on the hunt for Adnan Shukrijumah. He was most recently tied to the NYC 2010 bombing plot involving convicted Colorado jihadi Najibullah Zazi and I've been keeping track of his various alleged sightings for nearly 10 years now. Refresher: So, guess who may be harboring this fugitive and... Read More
Looks like the White House may release at least one photo of dead bin Laden and perhaps more pics and video of the raid. Take everything bungling deputy national security adviser John Brennan says with a grain of salt, of course -- but here are the latest details via ABC News: As I said yesterday... Read More
So Politico's Josh Gerstein reports that White House officials are walking back key details disclosed by Deputy National Security Adviser John Brennan at his bin Laden briefing yesterday.

White House photog Pete Souza has posted several insider pics on Flickr giving Americans an extraordinary view of President Obama and Cabinet/military officials as they watched the bin Laden operation real-time and prepared to let the world know the results.

Where were you last night when you first heard about Osama bin Laden's death? If you were like me, you were on Twitter. The micro-blogging/social networking giant reports: "Last night saw the highest sustained rate of Tweets ever. From 10:45 - 2:20am ET, there was an average of 3,000 Tweets per second." The graphic: From... Read More
Last night, I noted that "much of the intelligence gathered that led to discovering bin Laden was developed by the detainees detained under the Bush administration at facilities like the one Obama wanted to shut down." Those facilities, US officials are now reporting, included the CIA secret prisons reviled by the Left, outed by the... Read More
Intrepid investigative journalist Erick Stakelbeck has a new book out today that couldn't be more timely.

Leftists are swarming Twitter to chastise any conservatives who dare give any credit to President Bush for his resolve and role in leading the post-9/11 counterrorism/national security response to the worst attack on American soil. Meanwhile, Democrat hacks are burning the midnight oil making this All About Obama. It begins: "New DNC chief: Obama deserves... Read More

Remember this? March 26, 2009... Document drop: Whitewashing the “Global War on Terror” out of existence Yesterday, the Washington Post reported on the Obama administration's vehement denial that it is backing away from the phrase "Global War on Terror."

Just awful. Let's hope the missing journalists are indeed in Libyan government custody and will be released safely ASAP. My heart goes out to the families. Our family knows the kind of hell they are going through right now. Praying for a safe return:
Global rumors that Libyan dictator Moammar Gaddafi has been shot roiled the markets this afternoon. Oil prices tumbled $2 a barrel. The White House says it has "no reason to believe" Gaddafi is dead. But given how CIA director Leon Panetta gets his intelligence -- quick, get him the TV remote control! -- there's no... Read More
Loony-tunes dictator Muammar Gaddafi refused to step down in a trademark bizarro Libyan TV address this morning. He babbled hysterically about druggie kids instigating terror, blamed American planes for bombing innocent civilians, and ranted about the devil. All that was missing were Hugo Chavez-like references to "sulfur" and Noam Chomsky... ...and a Bed Intruder/Auto-Tunes soundtrack.... Read More
The last Somali pirate action against Americans I blogged about was in April 2009, but the chaos on the high seas has not abated.

Tonight's the night the city council will vote. The meeting is underway and is livestreaming on the Berzerkely website here. According to the council's notes, the... Read More
Homegrown hate crimes against our troops by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2010 When jihad-bent American Muslims target American soldiers on American soil, why does America yawn?

"...the September 11th of world diplomacy."
No American should take joy, pleasure, or satisfaction from the untold, devastating ways in which the coordinated Wikileaks document dump of hundreds of thousands of State Department cables -- nearly half of which are "secret" or "classified"-- has undermined U.S. diplomacy. Here's the left-wing Guardian of London crowing that its publication of the cables has... Read More
