Gitmo Extended Stay America Suites in Colorado? Hell No! by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2015 Liberal readers have scoffed at my repeated warnings about the dangerous prospect of an enemy combatant dump on American soil.

SFC Christopher Speer is dead. Omar Khadr is free by Michelle Malkin Creators SyndicateCopyright 2015 A Canadian judge ruled this week that Omar Khadr poses no public safety threat.

Obama's bloody Yemen disaster by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2015 When President Obama declares something a "success story," you know it has "TOTAL FAILURE" embedded in its DNA. Four months ago, America's King Midas in Reverse crowed about the fruits of his triumphant foreign policy in jihad-infested Yemen. A "light footprint" approach to counterterrorism... Read More
Exclusive: The story you haven’t yet heard about Bowe Bergdahl’s desertion by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2014 Five years ago, I publicly raised questions about Bowe Bergdahl’s desertion from Blackfoot Company, 1-501 Infantry (Airborne), 4th Brigade Combat Team (Airborne), 25th Infantry Division. A few weeks after his so-called “capture” in late June 2009, three... Read More
While many people jumped aboard the Bowe Bergdahl bandwagon, I was not one of them. His release today in exchange for five Taliban commanders who had been in custody at Gitmo underscores troubling questions that have persisted since his alleged abduction. Longtime readers will recall questions raised here about the circumstances of Bergdahl's disappearance. Here's... Read More
Via SFAhq Justice for Taryn and Tanner by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2014 Behold Canada and America.

The other country helped free that jihadist from... Read More

Obama's bloody recipe for more Benghazis by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2013 Gird your loins, America. President Obama intends to empty out Guantanamo Bay and send scores of suspected Muslim terror operatives back to their jihadist-coddling native countries. Goaded by anti-war activists and soft-on-terror attorneys (including those from Attorney General Eric Holder's former private... Read More
Later today, President Obama will address the National Defense University and is expected to initiate renewed efforts to close the Guantanamo Bay detention facility and transfer accused jihadists back to their home countries -- despite record-high Gitmo recidivism rates: Officials told the Wall Street Journal that Obama will announce he is restarting an effort to...

The man depicted in the photo above is Abu Sufian bin Qumu. I told you about him on September 20. He's the former Gitmo detainee released in 2007 who was named as the possible lead plotter in the bloody attacks on our consulate personnel, staff, and private security contractors in Benghazi. We haven't heard a... Read More
The Blind Sheik and our mute president by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2012 Egypt's terror-coddling President Mohamed Morsi has repeated his arrogant demand that America free convicted 1993 World Trade Center mastermind Omar Abdel-Rahman.

This is a murderous Islamic soldier, not a "child" If I read one more description of Gitmo jihadist Omar Khadr as a former "child soldier," I will throw up.

Longtime readers know that I've extensively covered the troublesome conflict of interest at the Department of Justice involving Attorney General Eric Holder and his former law firm, Covington and Burling, which has represented a score of Gitmo detainees. See my archive of posts on the matter here. Many readers have asked whether the firm represented... Read More
An exclusive performance of Gitmo Jihad Theater opened over the weekend. What happened underscores why these military tribunals never, ever belonged in the civilian court system that Obama/Holder had pushed for (until running into the common-sense public opposition buzzsaw). The jihadists' mockery of America -- and more notably, the jihadists' lawyers' mockery -- outraged 9/11... Read More
Just heard from a 9/11 family member, our friend Sgt. Tim Sumner of 9/11 Families for a Safe & Strong America, who received the following e-mail from the Office of Military Commissions concerning jihadi Khalid Sheik Mohammed and others at Gitmo: "....today, April 4, 2012, Bruce MacDonald, the Convening Authority for Military Commissions, referred to...

Buzz out of Washington this morning is that the Obama administration has signaled it will end efforts to try 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed in a civilian trial and instead will use the Gitmo military tribunal system pursued by, yes, George W. Bush. AG Eric Holder is reportedly holding a 2pm Eastern... Read More
The bleeding-heart media continues to call murderous Omar Khadr a "child soldier," but I've pierced that myth before. Breaking this morning, Khadr has pleaded guilty to five charges related to the killing of U.S. soldier Christopher Speer. Via the Globe and Mail: Omar Khadr, the only Canadian, only child soldier and only Guantanamo Bay detainee... Read More
The Senate Judiciary Committee is holding a hearing this morning with corruptocrat AG Eric Holder. C-SPAN is streaming it live here. Holder should have worn an Olympic gymnast's outfit.

If not for the vigilant work of Keep America Safe, the corruptocrat Attorney General Eric Holder's national security stone wall on DOJ's terror lawyers would still be standing. Asking politely, in respectful tones with bowed heads and stooped spines, did not get the DOJ to cough up the names. It took relentless pressure and synergistic... Read More
Scroll down for updates, warnings... I want to take you back to November 13, 2009, less than four short months ago. That was the day corruptocrat Attorney General Eric Holder announced he was bringing 9/11 jihadi mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohamed and other Gitmo detainees to NYC for civilian trials. As I noted the day the... Read More
Corruptocrat AG Eric Holder refused to disclose the names of the terror lawyers in the DOJ. But you can find out what Team Obama doesn't want you to know by heading over to the breaking news at FoxNews.com. A day after a conservative group released a video condemning the Justice Department for refusing to identify... Read More
Keep America Safe keeps the heat on corruptocrat AG Eric Holder over the terror lawyers in the DOJ: *** Related: Last month, I posted the must-watch video on KSM's confession. So many people clicked over that the site went down. It's back up and ready for viewing/sharing. Pass it on:
Conservative media outlets continue to chip away at the Holder stonewall on government-subsidized terror lawyers working at the DOJ.

My column pounds again on Eric Holder over his jihadi lawyer stonewalling. Question: Where's Mass. GOP Sen. Scott Brown? Remember when he made this one of his key campaign agenda items and carried the banner on the issue during his election night speech: "And let me say this, with respect to those who wish to...

The dream of Cirque du Jihad in the Big Apple lives. The White House won't rule out multiple Gitmo civilian trials in NYC, despite bipartisan opposition and massive public outrage over the costs, risks, and recklessness.

Marc Thiessen's must-read book, Courting Disaster, skyrocketed to #9 on the NYTimes best-seller list this coming week.

Here's one of... Read More
"From A to Z."
Watch this video and pass it on (*Update*: Traffic seems to have brought the vid down; the producer is working on getting it back up. Have patience. It is worth it!):
Hell has frozen over. Pigs are sprouting wings. The left-leaning 9th Circuit Court of Appeals has removed a moonbat judge from the botched LAX millenium bomber case and ruled that his sentence was too short, unreasonable, and in blatant violation of federal sentencing guidelines. The story is breaking. Seattle P-I reports: The 9th U.S. Circuit... Read More

The Left's clown prince, Jon Stewart, "took on" UC Berkeley law professor/former Bush DOJ official John Yoo on Monday. Yoo has just published "Crisis and Command" -- a thorough, compelling history of the use of executive power by America's presidents from Washington to Bush. Yoo has been demonized by the nutroots and stalked at his... Read More
Scroll for updates... All weekend long, Team Obama's intel folks refused to say that the White House would stop Gitmo transfers to Yemen. Looks like someone woke up and decided to stick a foot in the jihadi revolving door. For the moment, anyway: You don't say! Now, someone make sure that message gets sent to... Read More
Last week, I spotlighted the dangerous catch-and-release jihadi programs at Yemen and Gitmo. The Times of London has a new report today on the bloody wages of jihadi recidivism: At least a dozen former Guantánamo Bay inmates have rejoined al-Qaeda to fight in Yemen, The Times has learnt, amid growing concern over the ability of...
