Obama's Afghanistan mess by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2013 Is President Obama sleeping well on his Hawaiian holiday?

(Full transcript and audio at NEFA.) B-b-b-but I thought Obama's election was supposed to change the world's attitudes about America! What happened to "The World Wants Obama?" And I thought only us... Read More
Pay attention.
The US military hands over control of Anbar province to the Iraqis. Jihad conspiracist Sami Al-Arian has been freed. Ugh: And ABC reports details of the indictment of suspected al Qaeda bigwig Affia Siddiqui, who was caught with dirty bomb notes and mass casualty plans. Oh, and a liter of cyanide: Aafia Siddiqui, the alleged... Read More
Gitmo justice.

Never forget.
Watch (hat tip - CommentGuy): Today marks the seventh anniversary of the USS Cole bombing. As Deebow at Blackfive noted, "It truly is a shame that the Old Media dinosaurs keep a daily running tab of US Service members KIA in Iraq, but give this zero coverage. Glad to know that they are on our... Read More

Everything old is new again.
It's from old video, but coming on the heels of Zawahiri's possibly coded message, counterterrorism officials are rightly concerned. AP at Hot Air: Jeffrey Imm has more at the Counterterrorism Blog: In today's video message, Osama Bin Laden stresses the importance of martyrdom for Muslim causes, quoting Muhammad per translations by both Laura Mansfield and...

Lots of buzz about the reported death of al Qaeda leader Abu Ayyub al-Masri in Iraq. But take it with a big grain of salt. It's sourced to the Iraqi Interior Ministry and "U.S. military officials appeared to cast doubt on the report." Stay tuned. Meanwhile, there is plenty of other action going on. Take... Read More
Good news: Al Qaeda leader Abdul Hadi al Iraqi has been captured.

Watch Erik Stakelbeck's interview with Phares in case you missed it here. Marisol at Jihad Watch has more on the attacks. London Times reports on the... Read More
Osama bin Laden will apparently deliver an address to "the entire Islamic nation" in a new video. Rusty Shackleford: "As-Sahab has been known to recycle bin Laden's speeches in the past, edited and translated by our own American traitor Adam Gadahn." He wonders if it might be a Zawahiri video coming out instead. Stay tuned.... Read More
Laura Mansfield has the lowdown on al Qaeda second-in-command Ayman Zawahiri's new 9/11 anniversary call for every Muslim to "make use of every opportunity afforded him to take revenge on America for its imprisonment of Sheikh Umar Abdel Rahman"--mastermind of the 1993 WTC bombing.

Ryan Anderson, the National Guardsmen accused of attempting to peddle sensitive military information to al Qaeda, will face a court-martial--but not the death penalty: I wrote about his usenet ramblings here. The Spokane Spokesman-Review reprinted his letter-to-the-editor rants here. He's the Bizarro John Walker Lindh.
