Cleric may have booked pre-9/11 flights
for hijackers, FBI documents show

Fox News, by Catherine Herridge

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 1/4/2013 6:44:45 AM

The FBI suspected within days of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks that the American Muslim cleric Anwar al-Awlaki may have purchased tickets for some of the hijackers for air travel in advance of the attacks, according to newly released documents reviewed exclusively by Fox News. The purpose of these flights remains unclear, but the 9/11 Commission report later noted that the hijackers had used flights in the lead-up to the attacks to test security and surveillance. The heavily redacted records – obtained by Judicial Watch through a Freedom of information Act request – suggest the FBI held evidence

Another crucial piece of the 9/11 puzzle is handed to us by Judicial Watch and these reporters. This "Cleric" was killed in a drone strike in 2011 in Yemen, so he lived a full decade after his part in the 9/11 attack no doubt committing heinous acts all along the way. I hope the FBI left him untouched for intelligence reasons and not from politically correct reasons.

Despite the work by FoxNEWS, Catherine Herridge and Judicial Watch, this information regarding the muslim cleric WILL sit on a shelf and continue to gather dust. Americans elected a muslim to the WH 5 years ago my friends, easily bought off by freeloader handouts courtesy of the American Taxpayer. 50% of us, (but not those of us who do pay taxes) have stunningly short memories.

A year or two before 9/11, two private security men checked out the "security" at logan airport. They filmed the weakness of that security, even bringing weapons onto planes. They gave the information and video to jfkerry and it died there. And HE will be our next secretary of state?

Thanks for the bad mental image. That smug face. It should be painted on the side of a drone a la WWII bombers.

I didn´t know about this connection and actually, it makes me feel better to know that the circle of conspirators was that small...

...and has gotten smaller.

Vindicating Mitch McConnell
From the New York Times
American Spectator, by Russ Belli-Estreito    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 3/12/2014 7:42:25 AM     Post Reply
Headlines that Mitch McConnell wants to “crush” the Tea Party are spreading across conservative websites. But the New York Times article, which quotes McConnell, is—of shock to no one—misleading. The piece opens by providing a background of 2010 and 2012 Senate races in which conservative activist groups supported Tea Party candidates able to succeed in primaries, but unelectable in general races. The Times identifies groups such as the Senate Conservatives Fund, the Madison Project, and FreedomWorks as similar players in 2014 Senate campaigns. In Kentucky, Kansas, and Mississippi, Tea Party candidates, with help from the above-mentioned groups, are opposing incumbents—McConnell being one of

Bad decade: Malaysia
Airlines has catalog of woes

Posted By: Pluperfect- 3/12/2014 7:35:15 AM     Post Reply
HONG KONG — Within an industry notorious for impoverishing shareholders and irking customers, Malaysia Airlines has stood out for its years of restructurings and losses. The company now has global recognition of a far more unfavorable kind after one of its jets disappeared four days ago with 239 people aboard. There has been no suggestion that the unrelenting financial pressures faced by the airline and its 19,000 employees somehow played a role in the disappearance of flight MH370 en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing. But the revelation this week that the jet´s co-pilot allowed two female passengers to ride

DNC literally indebted to unions

Recent fundraising figures show the RNC faring better than its DNC counterpart in just about all areas. Notably, the RNC has no debt and nearly $10 Million in cash on hand. The same, however, cannot be said for the DNC, thanks in part to some clever money shuffling among kindred spirits. In the final two months of the 2012 election cycle, the DNC was strapped for cash, and opted to take out two low interest loans totaling $15 Million. The loans were provided by Amalgamated Bank, which uses the tagline, “America’s Labor Bank” and promises to continue “the progressive traditions of its

The phrase “cooped up” won’t hold quite the same meaning much longer if Californians have their way. In 2008, voters in California inexplicably passed a proposition requiring California-based egg producers to provide either free ranges or larger cages for their hens. After concerns were raised that this would put California’s egg producers at an economic disadvantage with producers in other states, provisions were added to extend the mandate to any eggs imported from other states to be sold in California. The law is currently set to go into effect next year. However, six state attorneys general, including Alabama AG Luther Strange, have

Scottsdale, Arizona -Barry Bonds certainly thinks he´s worthy of election to the Hall of Fame. "Without a doubt," baseball´s home run king said Monday at the San Francisco Giants´ spring training camp, where he will serve as a hitting instructor for a week. The 49-year-old Bonds spent his last 15 big league seasons with San Francisco, finishing in 2007 with 762 homers. But his final years were clouded by suspicions of performance-enhancing drug use, and the seven-time NL MVP was convicted of one obstruction count in April 2011 by a jury that found an answer he gave was criminally evasive during 2003 testimony

I t´s become commonplace to note that U.S. infrastructure costs are very high. What is less appreciated is the staggering scale of the difference between American infrastructure costs and those of other nations. Like our health care, U.S. infrastructure isn´t just a tad higher than the next most expensive country — we pay something like twice as much as our closest peer (usually the U.K., which is itself a very expensive place). And when you compare America to, say, Spain, we´re talking order-of-magnitude differences. In other words, Spain, a developed market democracy, gets 10 to 20 times as much infrastructure for its

There is solid evidence that the Philadelphia office of the Census Bureau didn’t cheat on unemployment data only in 2010. The scam continued until I exposed it this past November. On Nov. 19, I wrote a column that broke the news about Julius Buckmon, a Census enumerator — or data collector — who was conducting surveys in the Washington, DC, area for the Labor Department’s Current Population Survey (CPS). The CPS — also known as the Household Survey — is what determines the nation’s monthly unemployment rate, a number recently used by the Federal Reserve to make monetary policy and by many

FORT BRAGG, N.C. -- Attorneys for an Army general charged with sexual assault have a deadline on Tuesday to decide on a judge´s offer to plea-bargain the case with a new set of military officials. Judge Col. James Pohl made the offer after finding evidence that the case against Brig. Gen. Jeffrey A. Sinclair may have been improperly influenced by political concerns. His decision threatened to take the case out of the hands of current prosecutors and gave Sinclair´s lawyers another shot at effectively stripping away the most serious charges. While Pohl declined to dismiss the charges, Sinclair´s lead lawyer

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia -- One of the two men traveling on a missing Malaysia Airlines jetliner with a stolen passport was a 19-year-old Iranian man believed to be trying to migrate to Germany, and had no terror links, police said Tuesday. The announcement was the first certain piece of news in what has become a baffling mystery over the fate of flight MH370. On Tuesday, baffled authorities expanded their search for the Boeing 777 on the opposite side of the country´s coast from where it disappeared days ago with 239 people on board.

The federal government has lost track of tens of thousands of foreign students who came to the U.S. to study and then took jobs, often in violation of the terms of their visas, according to a new internal audit. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement doesn’t even consistently collect information or have the tools to monitor all of the foreign students who take part in the optional practical training (OPT) program, the Government Accountability Office said in a new report released late Friday. “The problems with OPT are extensive and serious.

The request to dismiss had been brought by Ms. Grace; Beth Karas, a legal commentator; and the program’s producers at Time Warner and

The 300,000-member union that was the first to endorse then-Senator Barack Obama has released a devastating Obamacare report that says Obama´s controversial healthcare program will slash worker wages by up to $5 an hour, reduce worker hours, and exacerbate income inequality.

CBS News investigative correspondent Sharyl Attkisson has reached an agreement to resign from CBS News ahead of contract, bringing an end to months of hard-fought negotiations, sources familiar with her departure told POLITICO on Monday. Attkisson, who has been with CBS News for two decades, had grown frustrated with what she saw as the network´s liberal bias, an outsized influence by the network´s corporate partners and a lack of dedication to investigative reporting, several sources said. She increasingly felt like her work was no longer supported and that it was a struggle to get her reporting on air.

You have probably seen all of the ridiculous speculating about the GOP nomination in 2016. This is still speculating, but my sincere hope is you don’t think it’s ridiculous too. Kentucky Senator Rand Paul is laying the foundation for his presidential bid in concrete and steel. First, forget about Jeb Bush unless you want to hand Hillary eight years in the White House. The latest Rasmussen poll shows her leading Jeb in a general election 47 percent to 33. His name is Bush and to the general public the specifics of how smart he is doesn’t matter one iota. Then there’s Ted Cruz,

Republican David Jolly won the special election to fill the House seat left vacant by the death of his former boss, Rep. C.W. Bill Young (R-Fla.). With nearly all of the votes counted Tuesday night, Jolly had 48.5 percent of the vote to Alex Sink’s 46.7 percent. Libertarian Lucas Overby had 4.8 percent. Sink lost the 2010 governor’s race to Rick Scott.

Former Arkansas governor and 2008 Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee said that donors are rushing him with offers of big-dollar support, clearing away his highest hurdle to entering the 2016 GOP primaries. The biggest difference between 2008 and this year, he said, is that supporters and well-financed contributors are urging him to run and pledging to fund his effort. One of the main reasons why: He has the best knowledge of the Clinton campaign machine, knows Bill and Hillary Clinton and their tactics well, and has run and won against two female candidates. “I certainly know the Clintons; I know
