McCain's Secret Benghazi Agenda

What is the real reason Senator John McCain is on the war path against UN Ambassador Susan Rice? Is it not odd for a senior U.S. Senator to target so personally a relatively minor administration official - especially from the other party?        It is true that McCain is certifiably unpredictable, with an out-of-control temper going back to his childhood, pre-dating his POW years. Just ask his mother, who has often publicly described how difficult and irascible John McCain was from his earliest days on. And, to be upfront and fair about it, I have known John casually since 1974. In the Libyan/Rice/Benghazi Affair, McCain indeed has an agenda. And here is what I think it is: [more...]

The Three Evil Pillars of the Palestinian Jihadist War Strategy

Israel is currently fighting a three-pronged war in its on-going struggle to protect its citizens from Palestinian terrorists - physical asymmetric warfare, cyberwar and lawfare. Together they constitute the three evil pillars of the Palestinian jihadist war strategy that are a severe threat to Israel’s security. The most obvious is the unremitting rocket assaults launched from Gaza by Hamas and its jihadist brethren. Before the current hostilities broke out, they had already fired hundreds of rockets against Israeli civilian population centers all during 2012, despite repeated warnings by Israel to stop and letters to the UN Security Council that were repeatedly ignored. Finally, Israel decided that enough was enough. It had to send an unequivocal, forceful message or the daily terror suffered by its citizens would only get worse. [more...]

Targeted Killings: Good for the U.S.; Good for Israel

There have been one million people, extending from Ashdod to Sderot who have been receiving a steady barrage of rocket attacks and have fifteen seconds to run for their lives. Israel has endured over 800 of these attacks from Gaza in the last year. Could you imagine how the United States would respond if San Diego were receiving this sort of an onslaught from Mexico, or Buffalo from Canada? According to article 51 of the United Nations Charter, every any nation has an inherent right to defend itself. Hamas, which is on the official State Department list of Foreign Terrorist Organizations, was swept into power in free and open elections on January 26, 2006. It is the group that has been behind much of the suicide bombings which Israel has endured since 1996. [more...]

King on Petraeus

After Rep. Peter King's appearance before the press after David Petraeus appeared before the House Intelligence Committee on November 16, he is clearly struggling with what he has heard from Petraeus: a version of Petraeus' September 14 briefing at odds with what King and, more important, the record as set at the time by the ranking Democrat Dutch Ruppersberger, recall. In a nutshell, on September 14, Petraeus emphasized a "spontaneous," video-driven protest that became violent as "extreme" groups opportunistically attacked the U.S. compound (with RPGs and mortars). Petraeus spun this false narrative to the intell committee at a time when the U.S. government already knew no protest whatsoever had taken place in Benghazi; rather, that the ambassador and three other Americans had been killed in a planned assault by al-Qaeda linked groups on the anniversary of 9/11. Petraeus' testimony, in other words, was a lie and an outrage - but no one seems to care. Meanwhile, it is a crime to lie to Congress, oath or no oath. [more...]
