How could someone who had only been in the Afghan army for 2 years "be a soldier with no history of suspicious behavior"? Then again, our Major Hassan had a series of truly suspicious if not treasonous behavior but he was still promoted and sent to Ft Hood to await transfer to Afghanistan.

Ideology trumps everything. These barbarians are incapable of rational thought process. All they know is brutality and murder. They should be treated like every insane person in a lockdown facility. You never turn your back on them and never allow them to place themselves between you and the door. They also need to know that there are eyes trained on them at all times and they will be shot dead immediately if they turn a gun on an American. Make sure they are always outgunned and out numbered in any space because they keep proving they are unworthy of our trust.

One report I heard was that they were shot by a machine gun in an adjacent building, apparently not within the security perimeter.

Probably not possible unless there were several soldiers in on the plan.

Silly me. I have a suggested new protocol for such meetings with our "allies" in the Middle East.

1. Disarm every participating ally.
2. Have our soldiers participate with drawn weapons at all times.

The foreign ministers of Germany and Britain said on Thursday they would not be taking part in air strikes in Syria against the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS).

Here is President Barack Obama´s challenge: how to unleash the dogs of war without having them run wild. This dilemma applies to both the political and policy considerations Obama faces, as he expands US military action in Iraq (and possibly Syria) to counter ISIS, the militant and murderous outfit that now calls itself the Islamic State and controls territory in northern Iraq and eastern Syria. (Snip) But whatever he calls it, the president is attempting a difficult feat: waging a nuanced war.

A senior communications aide to Attorney General Eric Holder seemingly called House oversight committee chairman Darrell Issa´s staff by accident and asked for their help spinning new revelations about the IRS scandal, Issa said in a September 8 letter to Holder. The aide, Brian Fallon, is a former senior aide to Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and a well-known personality on Capitol Hill. The letter describes Fallon as “audibly shaken” when he realizes his request to leak documents to help get ahead of news stories about them was mistakenly made to the very office he was seeking to undermine.

The NFL never asked Revel Casino for the elevator security tape that showed Ray Rice knocking out his future wife, TMZ reported Tuesday, citing sources. The casino would have given a copy of the tape to the NFL, sources said, as it gave copies to the police and Rice´s lawyer. But the league didn´t ask for it.

David Barajas, 32, was pushing his broken down car along a road with his 11- and 12-year-old sons back in 2012 when Jose Banda, a drunken driver, fatally struck the two boys. Prosecutors say Barajas then shot Banda, but authorities never found the weapon or physical evidence. Barajas repeatedly cried when he heard the verdict today.

Colorado aims to sell more legal pot

Denver - Seven months after Colorado legalized recreational pot, the state has an unexpected problem. It needs to grow more. Because even though sales have surged, only about 60% of the marijuana sold is the legal variety. The rest is either illegal or grown unregulated in the so-called gray market, where unlicensed citizens can grow for their own use. (Snip) "What that does is, (it) raises the prices and if the price is too high, then we can´t compete with the black market and that was our ultimate goal – we wanted to eliminate the black market," Kammerzell said. But new data comparing demand for marijuana in Colorado with the legal supply suggest

Former President George W. Bush put together a 48 member coalition for the Iraq War in 2003. 40 of those members supported military operations and 37 provided some number troops. In April 2003, the list was updated to include 49 countries, though it was reduced to 48 after Costa Rica objected to its inclusion. Of the 48 states on the list, three contributed troops to the invasion force (the United Kingdom, Australia and Poland). An additional 37 countries provided some number of troops to support military operations after the invasion was complete. Despite these numbers the liberal media continues to push the lie

The Department of Labor coordinated with the White House on whether or not to release hidden portions of former Labor Secretary Hilda Solis’ schedule as Solis battled an FBI investigation into her illegal fundraising for President Obama. New emails provided to The Daily Caller from the nonprofit legal research firm Cause of Action show the White House thanking the Department of Labor for “flagging” a public information request for “withheld” portions of Solis’ schedule. The White House then asked for the name of the conservative group making the request — information that Labor officials were eager to give up. As TheDC previously

There’s a lot of competition for Barack Obama’s biggest lie. The man who could assure the American public with a straight face over thirty times that they could keep their doctor under his health plan, when he knew that to be completely false, is one hellluva fibber. But execrable as that serial prevarication may have been, it doesn’t hold a proverbial candle to his most recent whopper — that the Islamic State is not Islamic — not to mention its corollary, or perhaps subsidiary lie, that real religions do not indulge in murder. Islam has been doing that pretty much straight

Is a mutiny happening around President Obama? It appears possible that the president may not have made two of his most recent decisions with complete free will. The announcement that he would delay his immigration initiative until after the election and his formal announcement that the United States would take military action against the Islamic State could have been coerced. Maybe Democratic leaders in Congress and a few members of the Obama team have had it. Could it be that, after President Obama briefed Democrats in Congress on the immigration plan, they balked? Maybe the president was told that, if he
