The White House just announced that President Obama authorized hundreds of extra troops on the ground to protect the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad. Press secretary Josh Earnest said in a statement that that the Defense Department authorization stemmed from a State Department request for “approximately 350 additional U.S. military personnel to protect our diplomatic facilities and personnel.” “This action was taken at the recommendation of the Department of Defense after an extensive interagency review, and is part of the President’s commitment to protect our personnel and facilities in Iraq as we continue to support the Government of Iraq in

President Obama tonight ordered sending 350 additional troops into Iraq to bolster security at the United States embassy in Baghdad. This is in addition to the 300 military advisors the president sent into Iraq back in June that he maintained would not mean a “return to combat.” The White House statement reads, in part, “This action was taken at the recommendation of the Department of Defense after an extensive interagency review, and is part of the President’s commitment to protect our personnel and facilities in Iraq as we continue to support the Government of Iraq in its fight against the

President Obama approved sending 350 additional troops to Baghdad, the Iraqi capital, to increase security at the U.S. Embassy compound and its support facilities. The Pentagon said late Tuesday that the new personnel would build upon previous deployments that were announced in June, boosting security in Iraq to about 820 people. "The additional joint forces will come from within the U.S. Central Command area of operations and will include a headquarters element, medical personnel, associated helicopters, and an air liaison team," Pentagon spokesman Rear Adm. John F. Kirby said in a statement. The forces are expected to provide security for the

Putin Tells European Official That
He Could ‘Take Kiev in Two Weeks’

MOSCOW — President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia told a European official that he could “take Kiev in two weeks” if he wanted to, adding a new dimension to the tensions building in Ukraine as Russian forces become more involved in the fighting there. As NATO leaders gathered in Wales for a summit meeting, Mr. Putin’s remarks and the increasing presence of Russian military units in Ukraine posed a stark new challenge to the alliance about how to respond to Moscow’s apparent willingness to exert military force to achieve its foreign policy goals. The Kremlin did not deny the remark,

GOP Senate candidate Cory Gardner is betting that contraception will get him at least a few votes among Colorado women who´ve bought into the "war on women" meme promoted by the Democratic Party. Gardner has released an ad in which he calls for contraception to be available to women "over the counter" without a doctor´s prescription, "around the clock," he says. Gardner is in the middle of a bruising fight with incumbent Democrat Mark Udall who has been going after Gardner for his past support of what´s called a "personhood" amendment, a divisive proposition that would allow for an unborn

World News Tonight anchor David Muir, who debuted in his role on Monday night, swears that under his tenure the program will focus on serious topics. ABC News in general has been drifting in a tabloid, content-free direction. But in an interview with Politico, the anchor insisted, "I think that at 6:30, we just have an even greater responsibility to laser in on what’s truly important about the headlines that have been hitting you all day long.” Asked to differentiate himself from predecessor Diane Sawyer, Muir responded, "It’s the same music, same graphics, and, quite frankly, the same guy who has

Steven Sotloff was the grandson of two Holocaust survivors who was fully aware of the risks of reporting from Middle East - and made it his career anyway. Friends say he spoke fluent Arabic and had a showed a deep love for the Islamic world before he was captured by ISIS militants in Syria in 2013. He was executed by them on Tuesday. Sotloff, 31, grew up Miami with his mother Shirley - whose parents were both Holocaust survivors - and father Art before attending the Kimball Union Academy boarding school in New Hampshire from which he graduated in 2002.

Boehner, Obama Need To Focus
On Islamic State Threat

President Obama said last Thursday that he doesn´t "have a strategy yet" to combat the Islamic State in the Middle East. Worse is what Obama didn´t say — not one word about how to prevent the IS from attacking us right here in the U.S. That´s despite security experts warning Congress repeatedly that the IS´ gory threats to spill American blood should be taken seriously. Compare Obama´s inaction to Prime Minister David Cameron´s decisive action. After British security experts raised the terrorist threat assessment there to "severe," meaning an attack is "highly likely," Cameron called for revoking passports of British citizens returning

In the midst of the summer recess, Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) issued a press release on Aug. 21 concerning a letter he wrote to the Department of Homeland Security seeking details about the release of 36,007 illegal aliens last year who had been convicted of a crime and were released by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) while awaiting deportation proceedings. The June 9 inquiry, addressed to DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson, led to the revelation that of those thousands released, 169 had been convicted of “homicide-related” offenses. “The public needs to know when a person is in the country illegally, and

London imam Anjam Choudary left CNN host Brian Stelter aghast when he defended the Islamic State´s killing of American journalist James Foley, told him that Sharia is coming to America, and made a joke about 9/11. Choudary appeared on "Hannity" last week, where he managed to say that an Islamic caliphate would implement Sharia in the United States: "You don´t have a choice, it´s coming to you in America." He is a Muslim imam at a mosque that is credited with having radicalized Abdel Bary, the British rapper accused of beheading Foley.

Peter Beinart’s widely quoted article in the Atlantic, Actually, Obama Does Have a Strategy in the Middle East, has the tagline “the president is neither a dove nor a hawk. He’s a fierce minimalist.” (Snip) He ends on a note of touching faith: “Barack Obama didn’t become president by tilting at windmills.” No, Obama became president because people like Beinart believed he would take them to a different place than where they now stand, each hour bringing a new humiliation and crisis. Roger Simon wrote on Twitter: “Not a single #liberal friend of mine wants to discuss politics now. They’re humiliated

It took the Washington Post 2,017 words and 59 paragraphs in a feature about Dorian Johnson, who initially said that his friend Michael Brown was shot in the back, to reveal that the federal government´s autopsy also reportedly did not find that to be the case. As the Post noted in its profile of Dorian Johnson, Brown´s "body had been autopsied three times — once each by St. Louis County police, a pathologist hired by Brown’s family and federal authorities.

Dallas — Tim Phillips loves peanut butter. The president of Americans for Prosperity (AFP), a free-market advocacy group, is in the midst of his annual “Defending the Dream Summit,” which this year brought more than 3,000 grassroots activists to the Lone Star State. We’re sitting at a table in Dallas’s Omni hotel, sharing a piece of peanut-butter pie, and it’s hard to compute that the mild-mannered guy in front of me is the force behind AFP, the bête noire of Senate majority leader Harry Reid and the Democratic party writ large. “I’m a Jif guy,” Phillips tells me, digging in

Over the weekend, former President Jimmy Carter addressed the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) in Detroit. He told the assembly that the principles of Allah will benefit the whole world. Jimmy Carter left the Southern Baptist Church a few years back, citing its “rigid” views. Muslim views tend to be a whole lot more “rigid.” For instance, Saudi Arabia doesn’t allow Christians to build any churches. Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood supporters are waging pogroms against Christians. If a Muslim leaves Islam, they are called an apostate and are often marked or death. One can be an apostate just by having

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said Tuesday that President Obama’s “cautious” response to ISIS is similar to his response to the 2009 Detroit auto bailout. “That was a risky maneuver,” Earnest said at a press conference, referring to Obama’s auto bailout. “It would not have been possible without this president, who is sometimes described as cautious.” Earnest made his statement at a press conference at which it was revealed by reporters that ISIS beheaded another American journalist, Steven Sotloff, two weeks after threatening to kill Sotloff in a video in which the group beheaded journalist James Foley.

National Journal commentator Ron Fournier called it “frankly insulting to the American public” that President Barack Obama would claim social media is driving a mistaken perception of a dangerous world.

The journalist said that Obama needs to “explain very honestly to the public what it is he’s doing, and to at least look like he’s taking this seriously . . . In this kind

Say what you will about Barack Obama, but his approach to the Middle East has been ruthlessly consistent. He was elected on the promise to end America’s involvement in the post-9/11 wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. He didn’t fulfill those promises as rapidly as his supporters wished – he preferred what his advisers thought would be a “responsible” retreat rather than a full-fledged bug-out, and in Afghanistan masked his withdrawal timetable behind a temporary troop surge – but he’s made and making good on his word. No event – not the slow-motion collapse of post-Bush Iraq, nor the many failures
