Forget about finding a strategy, this administration can’t even agree on whether the thing that it needs to find a strategy for is a war.

Does Obama's plan have any chance of success? No.

With all the issues confronting our national security and foreign policy, it’s easy to forget were facing serious domestic policy issues as well.

Americans must first extricate themselves from the claws of statism before they can begin to credibly address peripheral issues such as immigration.

NGOs are not just any private group hoping to influence policy. True NGOs are officially sanctioned by the United Nations

Policies emerging from the Obama administration are often perplexing. Why did he give ISIS a virtual free hand in destroying Iraqi and Syrian borders?

The Muslim Brotherhood is the best Obama can do.

We must understand that destroying Islamo-fascism is a long term endeavor just as we destroyed Nazism, Japanese imperialism, or communism...

The growth of ISIS has been alarming, with well-armed militants spreading across Iraq and into Syria, sustaining themselves with funding from captured financial institutions, oil fields, and sympathetic radical Muslims...

The American Declaration of Independence is an intellectual and moral challenge to excessive collectivization, an eternal declaration of war “against every form of tyranny over the mind of man.”

Barack Obama cannot successfully lead the war on terror because he is not a leader. He is a politician.

While the intelligence committees in Congress, the FBI, and others had spoken behind closed doors with many of those who were on the ground that night in Benghazi...

On this thirteenth anniversary, have we forgotten the videos of mobs throughout the Middle East and around the world who cheered the news of those 9/11 attacks? Were they not Islamic?

Obama would rather have been anywhere else on Earth but at that podium unveiling a new counterterror strategy for dealing with the Islamic State ...

In a rare moment of clarity, Choudary finally admitted Islam’s goal is to establish a worldwide Muslim caliphate.

It is fine to discuss a philosophy of freedom. But discussing it also requires a good, hard look at the political realities that negate any chance of freedom in the near future.

SEPTEMBER 11, 2014

Optics must trump everything this election season, and the President is concerned about the health of his Democratic Party. So are the media.

Al-Jazeera (AJ) is a propaganda arm of the Al Thani family which rules the wealthy Kingdom of Qatar.

The President is fond of referring to “the international community” but that is essentially a meaningless phrase and has been for a very long time.

ISIL (the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant) is not Islamic —Barack Obama, September 10, 2014

What is clear, however, no comfort should be taken from the President’s recent claim America is safer today than it was 20 to 30 years ago.

"Now let's make two things clear: ISIL is not Islamic," he said. "No religion condones the killing of innocents, and the vast majority of ISIL's victims have been Muslim."

A hundred years ago the attacks of September 11 would have marked the beginning of a war, but in this century they only marked a day of pain and sorrow...

Obama’s belief that he can “manage” the Islamic State may collide with reality.

September 19, 2014  09:36 PM
