Most of the weapons used by al Qaeda-linked militants to storm a gas facility in southeastern Algeria came from Libya, the Daily Telegraph has learned. Many of the Islamist terrorists shot their way into the In Amenas compound on Thursday using the AK104 model of Kalashnikov, which was typically used by Libyan rebels in the war against Muammar Gaddafi. They brought F5 rockets that also surfaced in the Libyan war, said the security source. The Islamists wore the same type of outfits that Qatar provided to Libyan National Transitional Council rebels by Qatar – yellow flak jackets with

Libya? Isn´t this the location of the last attack? The attack which murdered our Ambassador? The attack where Americans died, 30 plus persons disappeared never to be seen again? That one? The pResident is certainly attempting to push his luck in the media arena these days. How much longer can that last? The buckets of water are becoming mighty heavy. If not for foreign media there would be no media at all.
The day this terrorist attack started is the day FBI Director Mueller went to Libya to talk with their government about the Benghazi investigation. I´ve seen no news article stating whe3ther Mueller and his security guards got home safely.
In celebration of a true American day, George Washington´s birthday....you notice no one calls it George Washington Day and never did. A nice quote. "Firearms stand next in importance to the constitution itself. They are the American people´s liberty teeth and keystone under independence ... from the hour the Pilgrims landed to the present day, events, occurrences and tendencies prove that to ensure peace security and happiness, the rifle and pistol are equally indispensable ... the very atmosphere of firearms anywhere restrains evil interference - they deserve a place of honor with all that´s good." George Washington, First President of the United States
unbelievable. It took 40 years over 7 administrations for our Libyan policy to work and Obama just trashed the policy with the effect of siding with al Qaeda. It is disastrous on the level of a Mel Brooks movie.
Like our interest payments to the Chinese are paying for their military build-up, the avoidance of reporting all the news by the old media is allowing the foreign press to become the go-to place to get this news.
The guns came right out of Ambassador Steve´s warehouse in Benghai...he was selling arms to Al Qaeda..illegally...for Obama...to Al Qaeda...who was transporting the arms through Libya into Turkey...to help to take down Syria and Assad ...to turn that nation state too...over to the Muslim Brotherhood. Who do you think filled Obama´s campaign offers...to pay for all those voters on the ground across those 5 swing states... please note Assad is no longer in hiding and has announced he is running for office again...no longer fearful as he has blackmail material ....
That same arms cache from Benghai ...is being used to kill Americans..by Al Qaeda...in Algera. And Obama states we wants to "understand the Muslims" not a scintilla of outrage for what was no doubt torture then murder again...And like Benghazi, Obama will let the Americans be cremated before sent home..so the torture evidence is gone
Obama´s terrorists, Al Qaeda. Obama has armed the enemy...When will ANYONE in office or in the military out him?
FBI Director Mueller knows...Petraese knew...Petraeus immediately went to Benghazi, no doubt to cover and clean it up..Muller last week...not a peep as they continue to lie to Congress and to the American people.
We have a government of traitors and liars who will do anything to further their treasonous communist goals. This is Iran/Contra combined with Watergate on steroids...
And most of the press are as complicit and every bit as evil....letting this president conduct illegal wars with illegally sold arms...against Nator treaties...be on the watch for illegally sold stingers and the musing 30,000 missiles and Manpads.
#18´s post certainly has the ring of truth, whether it is just speculation or based on a lot of facts not available to the average person. Either way there is an enormous cover up going on. Americans have been killed and the best Obama can offer as a reason is a video no one has ever seen?
At some point this administration is going to run out of fingers and toes to plug leaks in the dike. Sadly, when the truth comes gushing out after that dam breaks, there will still be 90% of low info voters who won´t believe the truth or don´t care.
Obe gun running again? how else can he pay to avoid a price on his head for claiming he killed Bin Laden. FYI until all. minor holidays were moved to Mondays George Washington´s and Abe Lincoln´s birthdays were national holidays with no school and all the trappings. After removal protests the words were we have had so many presidents we we will restore a president´s day. Now how many even remember the dates but don´t be sad we have M. L. King´s birthday to celebrate on any day the one wishes.
President Obama has found someone to blame for the Affordable Care Act´s rolling failures besides Republicans. ObamaCare is the government´s fault, not his. On Thursday, Mr. Obama dropped by American University for a heart to heart with Chris Matthews, and the MSNBC host wondered who in the executive branch is responsible for the botched health-care rollout. Mr. Obama listed a few impersonal culprits including "cynicism," "Washington gridlock" and "the management of government," but he then drifted into another classic. "The challenge, I think, that we have going forward is not so much my personal management style or particular issues around White House
Jobs Report: November´s numbers were stronger than expected, a phrase rarely uttered since this president took the economic reins. But while a bigger number is always better, one good month now and then won´t cut it. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the economy created 203,000 jobs in November, 196,000 of which were in the private sector. Now at 7%, the unemployment rate has fallen to the lowest level in five years. What´s more, unlike in previous months, the rate´s drop came from gains in employment, not from people dropping out of the labor force. The labor force participation rate actually
Executive Orders: A liberal constitutional scholar warns of the concentration of power not only in the hands of one branch of government but in a single man who ignores the Constitution and acts of Congress on a whim. As the story goes, Benjamin Franklin emerged from Independence Hall at the close of the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia on Sept. 18, 1787, when a woman asked, "Well, Doctor, what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?" Franklin is said to have replied, "A republic, madam — if you can keep it." The Founders designed a system of checks and balances among three
Most presidents have politically troublesome relatives: Jimmy Carter had colorful brother Billy, Bill Clinton had brother Roger, and the George Bushes had son/brother Neil, who was involved in both the savings-and-loan scandal of the 1980s and Asian "sex romps" that emerged in a messy 2003 divorce. Obama has a passel of half-siblings, but his requisite nettlesome relative may turn out to be an uncle, Onyango (Omar) Obama. In August 2011, Uncle Omar was pulled over in Framingham, Mass., for driving under the influence. His arrest revealed both several outstanding orders for his deportation and his relationship to the
RUSH: Here is Wolf Blitzer. Last night on The Situation Room, Wolf Blitzer had in Fareed Zakaria GPS. I guess Fareed had his location device with him. He calls himself "Fareed Zakaria GPS." When you´re with him, I guess, you always know where you are. And they´re talking about the impact of the passing of Nelson Mandela, and this is classic. Listen to Wolf here... BLITZER: Is it overly naive to hope and pray that maybe the death of Nelson Mandela will inspire some of those world leaders out there right now to do the right thing, to recognize that bloodshed and
WASHINGTON — Without Nelson Mandela, there might never have been a President Obama. That is the strong impression conveyed from Mr. Obama, whose political and personal bonds to Mr. Mandela, the former South African president, transcended their single face-to-face meeting, which took place at a hotel here in 2005. It was the fight for racial justice in South Africa by Mr. Mandela that first inspired a young Barack Obama to public service, the American president recalled on Thursday evening after hearing that Mr. Mandela, the 95-year-old world icon, had died. Mr. Obama delivered his first public speech, in 1979, at
RUSH: We mentioned earlier that Obama didn´t know that Obama was living with his uncle, who happened to be an illegal alien at the time. Here´s Jay Carney. This is yesterday afternoon in Washington the White House at the daily briefing. Ed Henry, the Fox News White House correspondent, said, "The White House said that in 2011, that there was no record of Obama and his uncle, Omar Obama, ever meeting. Now the Boston Globe is being told by the White House -- and I assume you can elaborate here, Jay -- that, in fact, they not only met, but
More young men in California rise in pitch at the end of their sentences when talking, new research shows. This process is known as "uptalk" or "valleygirl speak" and has in the past been associated with young females, typically from California or Australia.But now a team says that this way of speaking is becoming more frequent among men.The findings were presented at the Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America in California. "We found use of uptalk in all of our speakers, despite their diverse backgrounds in socioeconomic status, ethnicity, bilingualism and gender," said Amanda Ritchart, a linguist at the University of
How do you get your arms around the catastrophe known as Obamacare? Is it even possible? At this point, I’m not sure it is. The list of individual disasters which threaten to ruin one-sixth of the U.S. economy and what has been, up until now, the best healthcare system in the world is exhaustive, and exhausting. The examples I will identify here barely scratch the surface. First but by no means foremost, we have the supposedly new and improved HealthCare.gov. Except it’s not, even the visible part. Stories still abound of people still failing to get in or to get through the enrollment
The question all week long was this: Who are you going to believe, an illegal alien or the president of the United States of America? Obviously, if it’s a president who once went by an alias, Barry Soetoro, you go with Uncle Omar, 100 percent, no questions asked. And so it was that the White House finally admitted to another, uh, misstatement — despite previous denials, Barack/Barry did sleep on his beloved Uncle Omar’s couch in Cambridge when he first moved here to attend Harvard Law School (speaking of which, we’re still waiting to see the president’s grades and his LSAT scores). But the
DAVID CORN: I saw a president who remains frustrated with the political-media culture that he has to work within, and that he´s looking to rally people, students here, and supporters, and people within the media. CHRIS MATTHEWS: But David Corn, you skeptic. He came to us today. He came amongst us. CORN: He´s trying to rally people behind this vision that he´s been promoting for a couple years. FINEMAN: By the way, he did it the end here, today, Chris, not by defending specifics, but by explaining why he´s in the game to begin with. And I don´t know about you, he´s
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a new five-year strategic plan to improve safety for elderly drivers and passengers. Although they are statistically among the safest on the road, the number of older drivers is increasing dramatically — and with it, that group´s numbers of injuries and deaths. Since 2003, the population of older adults, defined as age 65 and older, has increased by 20% and the number of licensed older drivers increased by 21% to 35 million in 2012, according to NHTSA. Last year, NHTSA reported that 5,560 people older than 65 died and 214,000 were injured
The most curious thing of all about the November jobs report released on Friday was the huge drop in the unemployment rate — and the fact that the Labor Department chose not to disclose that the data going into that figure are under investigation for falsification. On Nov. 19, I broke the news in my column that the Census Bureau, which collects data that goes into the jobless rate on behalf of Labor, had caught one of its enumerators fabricating interviews in 2010. The culprit said back then (and to me during an interview) that he was told to do so by
