US advisers in Iraq risk assassination
by troops they are trying to train,
claims classified report

Daily Mail [UK], by Jill Reilly

US advisers in Iraq risk assassination by troops they are trying to train, according to a classified report. Americans who are assigned to advise Baghdad’s forces could be at risk because so many units are deeply infiltrated by either Sunni extremist informants or Shiite personnel backed by Iran, the report by United States detailed. If the US does decide to assist in moving back the the advances made by Sunni militants in northern and western Iraq over the past month, the assessment concludes that only about half of Iraq’s operational units are able to carry out the push.

Comments:
So the Iraqi Army hasn´t been training all this time? The units are "deeply infiltrated"?

Compound this with our feckless leader´s ´rules of engagement´ and the troops (excuse me - advisers) are sitting ducks. I have great fear..

Exactly why would it be a great idea to train our enemies? Something only a feckless state department libtard (but I repeat myself) would think is a good idea.

There were thousands of Iraqis who risked their lives to back the Americans only to have Hussein Obama withdraw their support!

Jerusalem Post, by Yaakov Lappin    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 9/9/2014 9:56:49 AM     Post Reply
The Ministry of Defense together with the US Missile Defense Agency test fired an Arrow 2 interceptor in central Israel on Tuesday morning. The trial was aimed at examining the capabilities of the latest version of the air defense system against future threats. The test was overseen by officials from the HOMA administration--a part of the Defense Ministry´s Administration for the Development of Weapons and Technological Infrastructure, and Israel Aerospace Industries, which is the project´s prime contractor. "An Arrow 2 interceptor was fired according to plan, and carried out planned fight stages," the Ministry of Defense said. "The large amounts

NGO Accuses Israel of ´Illegally´
Expelling Illegal Immigrants

US-based NGO Human Rights Watch (HRW) on Tuesday accused Israel of "illegally" sending almost 7,000 illegal immigrants back to their home countries in Africa. [Snip] HRW, whose head Kenneth Roth directly condoned Hamas war crimes last month, accused Israeli authorities of having "denied them access to fair and efficient asylum procedures, and used the resulting insecure legal status as a pretext to unlawfully detain or threaten to detain them indefinitely, coercing thousands into leaving." The accusations come despite the fact that Yochi Genison, the most senior official at the State Attorney´s office tasked with immigration, clarified in June that the

Syrian rebels strengthened their hold of the Syrian side of the Golan Heights on Tuesday morning, conquering the mountain Al-Mal in the Quneitra region where they have recently been capturing control from Syrian President Bashar Assad´s forces. In conquering the strategic point on Tuesday, rebel forces killed roughly ten Syrian soldiers according to Arab news sources cited by Walla!, with some reports assessing that all of Assad´s forces in the area were killed in the clash. The victory gives the rebels full control over the mountain located roughly ten kilometers (just over six miles) from the border with Israel.

The United States should be nervous
about the Scottish independence referendum

Next week’s referendum on Scottish independence has largely flown under the radar screen here in the United States. [Snip] They should be concerned, however. What happens in Scotland will reverberate on this side of the Atlantic, and not for the better. Here are five reasons why Americans should be nervous about the outcome of next week’s vote if Scotland votes for independence. 1. The Special Relationship will be undercut. The United Kingdom is far and away America’s biggest and most important ally. Anything that weakens Britain, and chips away at the Special Relationship, is a big negative for the United

Obama´s ´97 Percent´ Climate Consensus:
Debunked, Demolished, Staked through the heart

"Ninety-seven percent of scientists agree: #climate change is real, man-made and dangerous." [Snip] The "97 percent" claim is an utter nonsense. This report released today by the Global Warming Policy Foundation explains exactly why. First, that word "dangerous". This is a concept that was never mentioned in the study responsible for that 97 percent claim. The paper was written by an Australian warmist activist called John Cook (and others). It drew its conclusions having allegedly reviewed 12,000 papers on climate change and found--so it claimed--that the vast majority of them supported the "consensus" on global warming. But here the watch-the-pea-under-the-thimble

We cannot tell if yesterday’s announcement from Kensington Palace will make a jot of difference to the voting intentions of the Scottish people next week. But it must surely have lifted spirits at Balmoral after a difficult weekend in which the Queen has found herself dragged into an independence debate which she had been studiously avoiding. Precisely one year from now, the cameras will be circling Balmoral for an even greater royal milestone than the arrival of a baby. For it is on September 9, 2015, that Queen Elizabeth II will smash Queen Victoria’s record to become the longest-reigning monarch

Crash investigators have said Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 broke up in the air over eastern Ukraine after it was struck by multiple ´high-energy objects from outside the aircraft´. [Snip] The Boeing 777 suddenly plunged out of the sky on July 17 over pro-Russian rebel-held territory in Ukraine, killing all 298 passengers and crew on board. The report said: ´The damage observed in the forward section of the aircraft appears to indicate that the aircraft was penetrated by a large number of high-energy objects from outside the aircraft. ´It is likely that this damage resulted in a loss of structural integrity of

´Barbaric´ Islamic State terrorists have

Posted By: Attercliffe- 9/8/2014 8:38:14 PM     Post Reply
Jigadists linked to the so-called Islamic State in Iraq and Syria have attempted six terrorist attacks in Europe, David Cameron told MPs today. The Prime Minister warned that the Islamist extremists needed to be "squeezed out of existence" because they were already targetting Britain and other Western countries. And he urged MPs to be "in no doubt" that the insurgents wanted to bring widespread carnage to the streets of the UK. His warning came after he began a diplomatic blitz seeking to rally a new international alliance against the Islamic Stage group with a phone call to United Nations chief

European bureaucrats have warned Britons off a crunchy, golden brown slice of toast. An EU watchdog says toast should be eaten only when it is a light brown colour or it could increase the risk of cancer. [Snip] It is mainly found in crisps, savoury snacks, chips, soft and crispy breads, biscuits, crackers, cakes, cereals and coffee. But dark roasted potatoes, jacket potatoes and slightly burned toast could also contain it. A draft report states: “Tests show acrylamide in the diet causes cancer in animals. “Scientists conclude that acrylamide in food potentially increases the cancer risk for consumers of all ages.”

Saudi Arabia has launched the construction of a high-security five-layered fence on the border with Iraq to protect the desert kingdom from “infiltrators and smugglers,” according to state media quoted by RT. The fence will cover 900 km (560 miles) of Saudi Arabia’s northern frontier, SPA state news agency reported. Watchtowers, night vision and radars will provide surveillance along the fence. The project was unveiled by King Abdullah late Friday. It was announced the fence’s purpose was to cut the "number of infiltrators, drug, arms and cattle smugglers to zero." Saudi Arabia already deployed some 30,000 troops to its border

A campaign aimed at destroying the Islamic State in Syria and Iraq could outlast Barack Obama’s presidency, senior officials have warned. It comes as it was revealed that a three-step strategy is being planned in a bid to overthrow the militants in a campaign that could last up to three years. The first step is already underway and has involved dozens of airstrikes in the past month as part of moves to protect U.S. personnel and ethnic minorities and halting ISIS progress in parts of western and northern Iraq. According to the New York Times, the next phase in the campaign could involve

S. Truett Cathy, the founder of the U.S. fast food chain Chick-fil-A which drew protests two years ago when its president made public statements opposing same-sex marriage, died on Monday aged 93, the company said on its website. Cathy, who was Chick-fil-A´s chairman emeritus, died at home in the presence of loved ones, the privately held Atlanta-based company said. It did not disclose a cause of death. In 2012 the chicken sandwich chain made headlines when its president Dan Cathy--the founder´s son--made comments to the Baptist Press citing ´prideful´ supporters of same-sex marriage and defending the company´s support

State Department spokesman Jen Psaki makes me psick. If you read P.G. Wodehouse, you know the “P” in her name is silent, as in “phthisis,” “psychic” and “ptarmigan” (as Wodehouse’s Psmith explains). And Psaki’s colleague Marie Harf makes me barf. Together Psaki and Harf give the catastrophic foreign policy of the Obama administration a lighter than air, Valley Girl kind of feel. It’s a novel use of expressive form. Paul Mirengoff explores their weightlessness in the adjacent post. As Paul recounts, Harf came to the defense of Psaki when Bill O’Reilly had the temerity to utter pslightly pscathing words about Psaki

There are moments in edited TV content when a keyed-in viewer can see a cut intended to make a “comfort edit”, smoothing out the narrative. The Chuck Todd interview with President Obama was riddled with them. Even when being interviewed by a fellow ideological traveler.

When the topic is positive, or viewed as favorable currency, the term “my administration” is used. @01:05 “what I have done over the past several months” – President Obama knowing he was caught flat-footed, having called

The beatings of three people in a Kroger parking lot Saturday night will not be investigated as a hate crime, according to police officials. Memphis Police Department director Toney Armstrong said he’s had lots of calls asking how the investigation would proceed but said there is “not sufficient enough evidence to investigate this as a hate crime.” “I know this has a lot of racial undertones,” Armstrong said during a news conference Monday at Memphis City Hall. “I’ve gotten a lot of calls and I know (Memphis Mayor A C Wharton) has as well.

Less than 48 hours ahead of a planned address to the nation on how the U.S. plans to combat Islamic State terrorists operating in Iraq and Syria, President Obama dined at the White House Monday with a slate of foreign policy experts. Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, and Secretary of State John Kerry were joined by some of Washington’s most established foreign policy hands, including Clinton National Security Adviser Sandy Berger and Zbigniew Brzezinski, who held the same position during the Carter administration. Former Obama national security adviser Tom Donilon was also at the dinner, as was former Undersecretary for Defense Policy

In a few days president Obama will unveil his strategy to destroy ISIS to a waiting public. (Snip) However the basic outlines of the strategy itself have emerged from information already available to the press. A Los Angeles Times story suggests that Obama will rely on proxies to fight ISIS at three levels: on the ground, within the region and in the West. Kerry invokes comparisons to the Sunni Awakening, seeking to recall the days when al-Qaeda in Iraq was beaten by George Bush. Obama plans to organize the Sunni Arabs to fight ISIS.

The Obama administration will make a decision on executive action to prevent corporations from leaving the country in the "very near future," Treasury Secretary Jack Lew said Monday morning. Speaking at an event on business taxes at the Urban Institute in Washington, Lew placed the responsibility on Congress to address so-called tax inversions, but said that the administration was prepared to step in if lawmakers don´t move quickly enough. Inversions are tax maneuvers in which corporations buy firms in low-tax countries in order to place their headquarters in that country. Such deals have grown in number in recent months, with
