Obama Announces Plan to Fight Al Qaeda, by Arming Al Qaeda

Obama Announces Plan to Fight Al Qaeda, by Arming Al Qaeda

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. He is completing a book on the international challenges America faces in the 21st century.

I can’t see how this plan could possibly go wrong.
The Obama administration asked Congress on Thursday to authorize $500 million in direct U.S. military training and equipment for Syrian opposition fighters
Obama didn’t ask Congress for authorization to invade Libya. He told Congress that he wouldn’t ask for permission to bomb Iraq.
The only reason Obama asks for something is to score political points or to cover his ass. In this case it’s the latter because even Obama knows this is a terrible idea.
That’s why he has been delaying for so long.
Within the OCO request, the Syria money is part of a $5 billion fund announced by Obama last month to help build a new counterterrorism infrastructure with partner countries “from South Asia to the Sahel.”
So Obama is going engage in counterterrorism… by arming and training terrorists. That’s like running guns to Mexican drug cartels to stop Mexican drug cartels from having guns…
… another brilliant Obama plan.
The request does not specify the type of military equipment that would be included. Under the existing covert program, the administration has sent limited quantities of small arms and ammunition and has allowed others to send U.S.-made antitank weapons.
So we’re going to be giving them unspecified weapons that could be used against American targets.
A US chopper in Afghanistan was already shot down by the Taliban using a Qatari shipment of Stinger missiles meant for Libya. That was another of Obama’s great plans.
Obama turned a blind eye to Qatar smuggling weapons to Jihadists in Syria.
The $500 million training and equipping mission would be aimed at helping “vetted elements” of the Syrian armed opposition to “defend the Syrian people, stabilize areas under opposition control, facilitate the provision of essential services, counter terrorist threats, and promote conditions for a negotiated settlement.”
What exactly are these “vetted elements”?
1. Last spring the New York Times wrote, “Nowhere in rebel-controlled Syria is there a secular fighting force to speak of.”

2. The only opposition we supposedly backed was the Free Syrian Army.
Unfortunately…
A. The Free Syrian Army consisted of a coalition of mostly Islamist militias under Islamist commanders, some of whom carried out joint operations with Al Qaeda/Al Nusra Front, which has pledged alliance to ISIS/Al Qaeda in Iraq.
B. An Islamist coalition easily took on the FSA and stole all the stuff we gave them while their fighters ran away.
C. 4 out of 5 FSA front commanders demanded to work with Al Qaeda.
D. Its leader initially defended Al Qaeda/Al Nusra and claimed they weren’t terrorists.

3. There is no such thing as a “vetted opposition” because the weapons we give will go down to individual groups that can align with whoever they chose and trade weapons with anyone they choose.
The FSA fighter we train today may be an Al Qaeda fighter tomorrow or he may have been Al Qaeda last week.

4. ISIS got so big and dangerous because of the weapons and recruits pouring into the Syrian opposition. Trying to arm and train “moderate elements” just keeps the conflict going which makes Al Qaeda grow faster and bigger than ever.
You can’t beat Al Qaeda by helping Al Qaeda.

Mexico 'Invades' Texas: 33 Soldiers Cross Border in Humvees

Mexico 'Invades' Texas: 33 Soldiers Cross Border in Humvees

Auto Start: On | Off
More than 30 soldiers in the Mexican Army crossed the border into Texas in Humvees on Tuesday before being processed and allowed to return to Mexico.
According to Customs and Border Patrol spokesman Rick Pauza, the accidental invasion occurred when 33 soldiers in four Humvees started crossing a bridge across the Rio Grande at Donna, Texas, and then realized they couldn't turn their vehicles around without entering the U.S.
A local newspaper, the Monitor of McAllen, Texas, reported that the Mexicans were chasing a resident of South Texas when they drove onto the bridge.
Without addressing the reason for the crossing, Pauza confirmed to ABC News that the incident had occurred and called it "inadvertent."
"There are times when an incident such as this occurs," said Pauza. "CBP has established protocols in place to handle such incident and all personnel have been processed as per those protocols. They returned to Mexico without incident."
In a statement, Mexico's National Ministry of Defense also confirmed that the incident had occurred, calling it "involuntary," and said it had happened "due to the vehicle turnaround being on the American side." The statement did not say why the Humvees drove onto the bridge.

Barack Hussein Obama’s Open Borders policy makes it very easy for Muslim terrorists to attack the U.S. again

Barack Hussein Obama’s Open Borders policy makes it very easy for Muslim terrorists to attack the U.S. again

There’s no question that murderous Muslims are on the march from Africa to the Middle East, and are pumped to wage jihad beyond dar al-Islam, particularly to the United States.

VDare (h/t Cynthia B) Reporter Dale Hurd noted in ISIS a ‘Clear and Present Danger’ to US Homeland that the aggregation of jihadist groups was a national security threat: One new danger mentioned was a non-metallic bomb being developed that could be smuggled onto commercial aircraft without detection.

But why would jihadists need to build fancy airplane bombs when they can easily transport serious WMDs across America’s wide-open southern border? The cartels run the place now, while the US Border Patrol is busy providing daycare for illegal alien kiddies from Central America.

Iraqi Extremists Promising Attack Could Slip Through Mexican Border There are concerns that the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria — an extremist group that has already captured several large cities in Iraq and is bearing down on Baghdad — could be responsible for the next 9/11 style terror plot on U.S. soil.

“This jihadist group ISIS and it’s leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi have promised direct confrontation with America, ” says Congressman Ted Poe (R-Houston). “He is looking forward to that day and he has said that publicly, we should believe him when he says that. These folks hate everything about the United States.”

Sen. Lindsey Graham, (R- South Carolina) echoed Poe’s remark, saying on CBS’ “Face the Nation” Sunday that U.S. officials have warned the next major attack on U.S. soil could emanate from the region.


“The seeds of 9/11s are being planted all over Iraq and Syria,” Graham said. “They want an Islamic caliphate that runs through Syria and Iraq…and they plan to drive us out of the Mideast by attacking us here at home.”

And Poe thinks the likely way ISIS will get into the U.S. to commit a terror attack will be through the Texas-Mexico border.

“Of course the way they would come to the United States would be through the porous border with Mexico. The drug cartels will bring people into the country no matter who they are — for money,” says Poe. “Everyone in the world knows that the border between the United States and Mexico is completely porous.”

0_21_450_032709_ha_hezbollah_01

Poe thinks the way to prevent such an attack would be to secure the border. “And we should secure the border by putting the National Guard on the border so people don’t cross into the United States without permission.”

He adds, “National security does not start overseas; it starts at the border between the U.S. and Mexico.”

In Texas, plans have already been laid out to decrease the surge of illegal immigrants and try to secure the border by deploying the DPS, but Governor Rick Perry’s office says there are still not enough resources.

“The issue here is inadequate federal resources on the border,” says Lucy Nashed with the Governor’s Office. “We are working with the Department of Public safety to identify options that can be taken immediately to address this crisis… This is a federal issue under federal jurisdiction, and while we will continue to commit resources to keep Texas communities safe, the ultimate solution needs to come from Washington, D.C.”

“Texas has already put hundreds of millions of dollars into personnel and resources to fill in where the federal government has failed. Gov. Perry has signed on to a letter with Lt. Gov. Dewhurst directing DPS to conduct a border surge operation in the coming months. This letter is awaiting approval from Speaker Straus.”

Report: US fears Israel would be dragged into war with ISIS

Obama administration concerned that jihadist group, that already seized control of parts of Iraq, Syria, will try to invade Jordan. Israeli diplomats say country prepared to take military action to save Hashemite Kingdom

The Obama administration has voiced concern that Israel and the United States may be dragged into a war against the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIS), the extremist Sunni organization that is threatening to transform Iraq and other countries into Islamist territories, the Daily Beast reported.


According to the website, senior Obama administration officials told senators in a briefing last week that while ISIS has already seized control of parts of Iraq and Syria, the jihadist group is now eying westward territories – including Jordan.

ISIS's attack on Jordan can only further complicate the already complex conflict, the officials said in the briefing, according to the Daily Beast. They believe that if the Jordanians feel threatened by ISIS, they will attempt to recruit Israel and the United States for an all-inclusive war that is coming into being in the Middle East.

"The concern was that Jordan could not repel a full assault from ISIS on its own at this point,” said one senator, the report quoted one senator as saying.

According to another source that was present at the briefing, the American officials responded to the question of how Jordan's leaders would act in the case of an attack by ISIS by saying: "They will ask Israel and the United States for as much help as they can get."

The United States has already begun to intervene in the crisis in Iraq, and on Friday confirmed that it has started flying armed drones over Baghdad to protect US interests in the Iraqi capital.

In this way, the US is essentially cooperating with Iran, which is also trying to help the central authorities in Iraq in their battle against the Sunni jihadists. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu advised US President Barack Obama not to make any promises to Iran in the nuclear talks, as part of the same cooperation in Iraq.

However, the Daily Beast article states that Israeli diplomats told their American counterparts that Israel would be willing to take military action to save the Hashemite Kingdom.

Earlier this week, a Jordanian official told Ynet that in the backdrop of ISIS's success in Iraq and its actions on the border with Jordan, "There is a very good cooperation between us regarding ISIS's growing presence in Iraq and Syria, but also on issues relating to other radical forces in the Middle East which have their sights set on Israel and Jordan."

Dana Daoud, a spokeswoman for the Jordanian embassy in Washington, stated that Jordan's military and security forces are fully prepared to deal with the ISIS threat: "We are in full control of our borders and our Jordanian Armed Forces are being very vigilant,” she said.

Daoud further added that "we have taken all the precautionary measures. So far, we have not detected any abnormal movement. However, if anything threatens our security or gets near our borders it will face the full strength of our Jordanian Armed Forces.” Earlier this week, as part of the same precautionary approach, Jordan closed a central border crossing with Iraq.

Jordanian protestors raise al-Qaeda flags

Meanwhile, pressure is mounting in Jordan. ISIS supporters raised black flags and rallied in the southern city of Ma'an in two different demonstrations last week. During the protests, which saw support for the Jihadist organization for the first time in Jordan, demonstrators shouted slogans against King Abdullah.

"We don't believe in the government anymore, and are seeking for an alternative that will grant us our basic rights," said one of the protestors at the rally, adding that "we found that alternative in an Islamic State."
Muhammad Abu Salah, a local political leader in Ma'an that helped organizing protests against the government, explained the background to the protests. "The city was neglected. The only service we receive is the police. No jobs, no development, no respect."

ISIS militants attempted to infiltrate Sinai from Gaza

Countries east of Israel are not the only ones threatened by ISIS. The Al-Masry Al-Youm Egyptian newspaper cited on Friday night a security official in northern Sinai who said that Egyptian security forces arrested 15 suspects affiliated with ISIS when they attempted to infiltrate Sinai from the Gaza Strip through tunnels in Rafah.

According to the security official, terrorists organizations based in Gaza paved the militants' way to Gaza through one of the tunnels.

He claimed the terrorists were arrested by special forces and commando forces immediately upon their entry to Sinai. The detainees told interrogators that they had attempted to deliver a message to terrorist organizations in Egypt in order to establish a branch of ISIS in the country.

The suspects further stated that they were supposed to oversee the groups that were to be founded. So far, an official confirmation on the report from Egypt's army has yet to be received.
 
Since ISIS began their conquest of Iraq two weeks ago, the Sunni jihadists carried out hundreds of executions of Iraqi soldiers Shi'ite soldiers in Iraq's army. The Jihadists consider the Shiites heretics.

Iraqi insurgents executed at least 160 captives earlier this month in the northern city of Tikrit, Human Rights Watch said Friday, citing an analysis of satellite imagery and grisly photos released by the militants.

The US-based rights group said militants from the Islamic State of Iraq and al Shams killed between 160 and 190 men in two locations in Tikrit between June 11 and June 14.


"The number of victims may well be much higher, but the difficulty of locating bodies and accessing the area has prevented a full investigation," it said.

Give it back! Students ask selfish Hillary to return $225K speaking fee

Hillary Clinton stirred up controversy with a recent comment that she and Bill Clinton were “dead broke” after leaving the White House, in large part because they have a net worth today of up to 50 million dollars.
And students at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas have little interest in contributing to the Clinton’s vast wealth.
The likely 2016 Democratic presidential nominee — who commands about $200,000 for speaking engagements — is scheduled to speak at the annual fundraiser for the schools foundation in mid-October, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported.
UNLV is paying Clinton a premium of $225,000 — and student leaders are asking her to “respectfully” return the money.
“To be honest, it’s not surprising and we really appreciate anybody who would come to raise money for the university,” student Daniel Waqar told Jon Ralston on Ralston Reports. “But anybody who is being paid $225,000 to come speak, we think that’s a little outrageous.”
Waqar, the student government’s public relations director, said tuition just went up 17 percent and students could benefit from Clinton’s speaking fee, were she to donate it back to them.
UNLV Student Body President Elias Benjelloun was also not thrilled about the amount of the fee.
“We’re excited that Hillary Clinton would come to the university to fundraise on behalf of our university,” Benjelloun said. “We’re excited anyone wants to come to UNLV and fundraise on our behalf. When we heard $225,000, we weren’t so thrilled.”

Detroit water department draws criticism from UN Experts for water shutoffs

DETROIT (WXYZ) - The Detroit Water & Sewerage Department is now shutting off water to thousands of people due to lack of payment.
That has activists and experts from the UN getting involved.
The issue is even making national headlines.
"I heard on the national news they were going to classify Detroit as a third world country, because water was shut off and they couldn't afford the payments," says one man from Detroit.
Mother Jasmine Woodruff tells us it impacts her children also saying "When they get up the wake up to not brushing their teeth, washing their face, nothing like that."
Downtown, a showdown is brewing. Activists with Michigan Coalition for human rights say "This can't stand. This is unconscionable. There can't be people without water in Detroit."
At a public meeting this afternoon at the water department, we saw more of the same.
People like Ann Rall with Michigan Welfare Rights told the Water Board "Every human being has the right to safe drinking water and sanitation."
The United Nations experts are also weighing in on roughly 3,000 shut-offs a week. In a statement, they say "Disconnection of water services because of failure to pay constitutes a violation of the human right to water and other International human rights.
"The average water bill in Detroit is $560, we're not shutting people's water off for $100," says Deputy Director of the Water Dept. William Latimer. He adds "This is not anything new. The department is shedding light on the delinquency problem in the city of Detroit."
It's little comfort for some who can't pay till tomorrow but need water today.
"I didn't resolve anything, I have to pay it tomorrow and they turn the water on once they get their money," says one Detroiter.

ISIS Edging closer to Israel as 95% of Golan Heights now Occupied.

golanAlmost the entire Syrian side of the Golan Heights is now under the control of rebel forces, including radical Islamist groups, a senior Israeli military commander in the area said Friday. Only the Quneitra border area is still in the hands of forces loyal to President Bashar Assad, Lt.-Col.

OBAMA SO DUMB HE BLAMES THE GOP OF CALLING HIM NAMES MEAN WHILE IT IS HIS PARTNER IN CRIME HILLARY

Hillary called Obama ‘incompetent and feckless’ in boozy rant

Hillary Clinton called President Obama “incompetent and feckless” and charged that he had “no hand on the tiller half the time” during a boozy reunion with college pals, a new book claims.
The scathing attacks came as the wine was flowing at a May 2013 dinner at Le Jardin Du Roi, a cozy French bistro near the Clinton family home in Westchester, according to “Blood Feud,” by best-selling author Edward Klein.
The former first lady, months removed from being Obama’s secretary of state, unleashed the verbal assault between sips of vino, sources told the author.
“When her friends asked Hillary to tell them what she thought — really thought — about the president she had served for four draining years, she lit into Obama with a passion that surprised them all,” Klein wrote.
Clinton ranted, “The thing with Obama is that he can’t be bothered, and there is no hand on the tiller half the time. That’s the story of the Obama presidency. No hand on the f–king tiller,” according to the book, which was excerpted exclusively in Sunday’s Post.
“Obama has turned into a joke,” she went on, according to Klein.
“The IRS targeting the Tea Party, the Justice Department’s seizure of AP phone records and [Fox reporter] James Rosen’s e-mails — all these scandals. Obama’s allowed his hatred for his enemies to screw him the way Nixon did,” she raged, the book says, adding that she called the president “incompetent and feckless.”

Obama’s allowed his hatred for his enemies to screw him the way Nixon did.

Hillary also heaped praise on her hubby, Bill, lauding his presidency and leadership skills — and bitterly complained about the lousy treatment she said the Clintons have received from the current president. “Obama has treated Bill and me incredibly shabbily. And we’re angry,” she said.
Clinton confided to her unnamed pals that she and Bill promised the Obamas they would work to get him re-elected in 2012 if he promised to return the favor and help Hillary win the presidency four years later.
“He agreed to the arrangement but then he reneged on the deal. His word isn’t worth s–t,” Hillary said, according to Klein’s book. “The bad blood between us is just too much to overcome.”
And Bill Clinton shared his wife’s loathing for Obama, as The Post reported Sunday.
“I hate that man Obama more than any man I’ve ever met, more than any man who ever lived,” Bill told pals, according to the book.

Human Rights Watch (HRW) has strongly slammed Saudi Arabian authorizes for hacking into the mobile phones of dissidents to obtain data on anti-regime protests.
A senior researcher at the New York-based organization said on Saturday that the Saudi regime should clarify whether it is infecting and monitoring mobile phones with surveillance malware.
"We have documented how Saudi authorities routinely crack down on online activists who have embraced social media to call out human rights abuses,” said Cynthia Wong, senior internet researcher at the HRW, adding “It seems that authorities may now be hacking into mobile phones, turning digital tools into just another way for the government to intimidate and silence independent voices.”
The spyware allows the regime to see a phone's call history, text messages, contacts, emails and files from social media. It also allows authorities to take pictures or record conversations without the owner's knowledge.
The rights group accuses the Saudi regime of utilizing the surveillance software to mostly target individuals in the eastern city of Qatif, which has been the site of sporadic protests since February 2011.
The HRW also criticized the kingdom for using surveillance software to target the Saudi Shia Muslims in various parts of the country.
The latest developments come as Saudi Arabia has already been criticized by human rights organizations for cracking down on online activists.
Last October, Amnesty International censured Saudi authorities for not addressing the “dire human rights situation” in the kingdom. The group also handed in a paper to the United Nations (UN), which included information regarding a “new wave of repression against civil society, which has taken place over the last two years.”

Cold War renewed with vengeance as US lies again

The Cold War made a lot of money for the military/security complex for four decades dating from Churchill’s March 5, 1946 speech in Fulton, Missouri declaring a Soviet “Iron Curtain” until Reagan and Gorbachev ended the Cold War in the late 1980s.

During the Cold War Americans heard endlessly about “the Captive Nations” whose foreign policies were dictated by Moscow. Today an even bigger group of countries have their policies dictated by Washington.
During the Cold War Americans thought of Western Europe and Great Britain as independent sovereign countries. Whether they were or not, they most certainly are not today. We are now almost seven decades after WWII, and US troops still occupy Germany. No European government dares to take a stance different from that of the US Department of State.
Not long ago there was talk both in the UK and Germany about departing the European Union, and Washington told both countries that talk of that kind must stop as it was not in Washington’s interest for any country to exit the EU. The talk stopped. Great Britain and Germany are such complete vassals of Washington that neither country can publicly discuss its own future.
When Baltasar Garzon, a Spanish judge with prosecuting authority, attempted to indict members of the George W. Bush regime for violating international law by torturing detainees, he was slapped down.
In Modern Britain, Stephane Aderca writes that the UK is so proud of being Washington’s “junior partner” that the British government agreed to a one-sided extradition treaty under which Washington merely has to declare “reasonable suspicion” in order to obtain extradition from the UK, but the UK must prove “probable cause.” Being Washington’s “junior partner,” Aderca reports, is an ego-boost for British elites, giving them a feeling of self-importance.
Under the rule of the Soviet Union, a larger entity than present day Russia, the captive nations had poor economic performance. Under Washington’s rule, these same captives have poor economic performance due to their looting by Wall Street and the IMF.
As Giuseppe di Lampedusa said, “Things have to change in order to remain the same.”
The looting of Europe by Wall Street has gone beyond Greece, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Ireland and Ukraine, and is now focused on France and Great Britain. The American authorities are demanding $10 billion from France’s largest bank on a trumped-up charge of financing trade with Iran, as if it is any business whatsoever of Washington’s who French banks choose to finance. And despite Great Britain’s total subservience to Washington, Barclays bank has a civil fraud suit filed against it by the NY State Attorney General. The charges against Barclays PLC are likely correct. But as no US banks were charged, most of which are similarly guilty, the US charge against Barclays means that big pension funds and mutual funds must flee Barclays as customers, because the pension funds and mutual funds would be subject to lawsuits for negligence if they stayed with a bank under charges.
The result, of course, of the US charges against foreign banks is that US banks like Morgan Stanley and Citigroup are given a competitive advantage and gain market share in their own dark pools.
So, what are we witnessing? Clearly and unequivocally, we are witnessing the use of US law to create financial hegemony for US financial institutions. The US Department of Justice (sic) has had evidence for five years of Citigroup’s participation in the fixing of the LIBOR interest rate, but no indictment has been forthcoming.
The bought and paid for governments of Washington’s European puppet states are so corrupt that the leaders permit Washington control over their countries in order to advance American financial, political, and economic hegemony.
Washington is organizing the world against Russia and China for Washington’s benefit. On June 27 Washington’s puppet states that comprise the EU issued an ultimatum to Russia.The absurdity of this ultimatum is obvious. Militarily, Washington’s EU puppets are harmless. Russia could wipe out Europe in a few minutes. Here we have the weak issuing an ultimatum to the strong.
The EU, ordered by Washington, told Russia to suppress the opposition in southern and eastern Ukraine to Washington’s stooge government in Kiev. But, as everyone knows, including the White House, 10 Downing Street, Merkel, and Holland, Russia is not responsible for the separatist unrest in eastern and southern Ukraine. These territories are former constituent parts of Russia that were added to the Ukrainian Soviet Republic by Soviet Communist Party leaders when Ukraine and Russia were two parts of the same country.
These Russians want to return to Russia because they are threatened by the stooge government in Kiev that Washington has installed. Washington, determined to force Putin into military action that can be used to justify more sanctions, is intent on forcing the issue, not on resolving the issue.
What is Putin to do? He has been given 72 hours to submit to an ultimatum from a collection of puppet states that he can wipe out at a moment’s notice or seriously inconvenience by turning off the flow of Russian natural gas to Europe.
Historically, such a stupid challenge to power would result in consequences. But Putin is a humanist who favors peace. He will not willingly give up his strategy of demonstrating to Europe that the provocations are coming from Washington, not from Russia. Putin’s hope, and Russia’s, is that Europe will eventually realize that Europe is being badly used by Washington.
Washington has hundreds of Washington-financed NGOs in Russia hiding behind various guises such as “human rights,” and Washington can unleash these NGOs on Putin at will, as Washington did with the protests against Putin’s election. Washington’s fifth columns claimed that Putin stole the election even though polls showed that Putin was the clear and undisputed winner.
In 1991 Russians were, for the most part, delighted to be released from communism and looked to the West as an ally in the construction of a civil society based on good will. This was Russia’s mistake. As the Brzezinski and Wolfowitz doctrines make clear, Russia is the enemy whose rise to influence must be prevented at all cost.
Putin’s dilemma is that he is caught between his heart-felt desire to reach an accommodation with Europe and Washington’s desire to demonize and isolate Russia.
The risk for Putin is that his desire for accommodation is being exploited by Washington and explained to the EU as Putin’s weakness and lack of courage. Washington is telling its European vassals that Putin’s retreat under Europe’s pressure will undermine his status in Russia, and at the right time Washington will unleash its many hundreds of NGOs to bring Putin to ruin.
This was the Ukraine scenario. With Putin replaced with a compliant Russian, richly rewarded by Washington, only China would remain as an obstacle to American world hegemony.

Only the Quneitra border area is still in the hands of forces loyal to President Bashar Assad, Lt.-Col. Anan Abbas, deputy commander of the Golan Brigade, told Israel’s Channel 10. About 95 percent of the Syrian side of the Golan is in the hands of anti-Assad rebels, including radical Islamic groups such as the Al-Nusra Front, affiliated with al-Qaeda, a rival of the burgeoning Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, better known as ISIL or ISIS.
One of two Syrian army brigades that used to control the area has completely disappeared, the officer said.
At present, the Islamist groups in the area are focused on the war against Assad, he said, “but we know their goal is to harm Israel; we’ve seen their propaganda material.”
The Israeli officer said that the dramatic gains made by the rebel forces in the area appeared to explain why Syrian troops fired a missile on Sunday that killed a 15-year-old boy on the Israeli side of the border.
Apparently forces loyal to Assad, stationed some five kilometers inside Syrian territory, erroneously calculated that a civilian truck, delivering water to Israeli contractors who were working on the border fence, was actually a rebel truck on the Syrian side of the border, and opened fire on it with an anti-tank missile. The attack killed 15-year-old Mohammad Karkara, who had accompanied his father, a civilian contractor, to work that day.
In response to the attack, Israel that night launched a series of retaliatory air strikes that killed a reported 10 Syrian soldiers, though Damascus put the number at four.
Subsequently, the TV report said, Syria conveyed the message to Israel, via UN liaison personnel stationed on the Golan, that the anti-tank missile was fired in error. Israel “is inclined to accept the explanation,” the report said.
The Golan Heights is a strategic plateau on the Israeli-Syrian border. Israel captured the territory in the 1967 war, having been attacked from the Golan over the previous 20 years, and extended Israeli law to the area in 1981. Unsuccessful peace efforts over the years have seen Israel ready to trade most of the Golan for a permanent accord with Damascus, but the notion of Israeli-Syrian peace has all but disappeared as Syria collapsed into anarchy over the past three years of civil war

The Times of Israel reported today that almost the entire Syrian side of the Golan Heights is now under the control of rebel forces, including radical Islamist groups, a senior Israeli military commander in the area said Friday.

Only the Quneitra border area is still in the hands of forces loyal to President Bashar Assad, Lt.-Col. Anan Abbas, deputy commander of the Golan Brigade, told Israel’s Channel 10. About 95 percent of the Syrian side of the Golan is in the hands of anti-Assad rebels, including radical Islamic groups such as the Al-Nusra Front, affiliated with al-Qaeda, a rival of the burgeoning Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, better known as ISIL or ISIS.
One of two Syrian army brigades that used to control the area has completely disappeared, the officer said. At present, the Islamist groups in the area are focused on the war against Assad, he said, “but we know their goal is to harm Israel; we’ve seen their propaganda material.”

Zuckerberg, Stop being an Internet Creep!

Last week, Facebook announced it will be using every user's web browsing and app history to show ads to them. Everywhere we go and everything we do on the Internet will be watched by Facebook.
This isn't the first time Facebook has gotten creepy with our privacy. In 2011, the FTC ruled against Facebook for lying to its users' about what data it was sharing.
Facebook has taken online tracking way too far on its users. With the NSA and other government agencies looking at Facebook for your personal data, our privacy is at stake. Tell Facebook to get out of your data. It's personal.

Facebook: Putting us all in danger of surveillance

Because of the Snowden documents, we know that Facebook is working closely with government agencies to give far reaching access into our personal lives. Just this week, the European Court began a case against Facebook and NSA spying connections on European citizens. The evidence only continues to grow: Facebook's quest to take over the world is putting everyone in danger.
With Facebook tracking, selling, and sharing your personal information with companies and governments, it's time for the abuse of Internet users to end. That's why we're demanding that Facebook stop tracking our personal data online.
If we can get more and more people to opt out of Facebook, we can put a stop to their reign of surveillance. Please share this page on your Facebook and Twitter to your friends, we need to stop the tracking now!

Book: Clinton 'Stunned' After Talking With Obama During Benghazi Attack

Book: Clinton 'Stunned' After Talking With Obama During Benghazi Attack

As seen on Fox and Friends
In a new book, “Blood Feud," journalist Edward Klein writes that there was a phone call between President Obama and then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on the night of the Benghazi attack in 2012. Citing one of Clinton's top legal advisers, Klein writes that Clinton was "stunned" upon hearing from Obama that the White House would blame the attack on a YouTube video.

According to the book, Clinton pushed back, arguing the story was not credible.
After her conversation with the president, Hillary called Bill Clinton, who was at his penthouse apartment in the William J. Clinton Presidential Library in Little Rock, and told him what Obama wanted her to do.
“I’m sick about it,” she said, according to the legal adviser, who was filled in on the conversation.
“That story won’t hold up,” Bill said. “I know,” Hillary said. “I told the president that.” “It’s an impossible story,” Bill said. “I can’t believe the president is claiming it wasn’t terrorism. Then again, maybe I can. It looks like Obama isn’t going to allow anyone to say that terrorism has occurred on his watch.”
Steve Doocy discussed the developments this morning with author Ken Timmerman, who also reported on this phone call in his own book, Dark Forces: The Truth About What Happened in Benghazi. Timmerman believes the information has been released in order to paint Clinton in a favorable light before a possible presidential run.
Timmerman called the story in the book a "desperate ploy" to shelter Clinton from responsibility for Benghazi. He noted that it was Clinton's decision to "stand down" U.S. forces who may have been able to stop the attack before four Americans lost their lives.
"I talk about this in "Dark Forces." We had a foreign emergency support team on the ground with U.S. Special Forces. They could have gone there. Hillary would not allow them to leave," said Timmerman, calling Benghazi "an albatross around her neck."
He added that President Obama could have made the call to "stand up" the U.S. military while the attack was unfolding, but also chose not to.

Tipsy Hillary spills real feelings: Obama’s a joke with ‘no hand on the (expletive) tiller,’ book says

In vino, veritas?

A combination of booze and bad blood bubbled up into a boatload of bile when Hillary Clinton got asked her real feelings about Barack Obama, according to the new book that’s blowing the lid off the “Team of Rivals” image Obama and Clinton projected for four years.
According to the New York Post, the gossipy tell-all “Blood Feud: The Clintons vs. The Obamas,” includes the story of the night Hillary spilled her guts during a wine-infused gathering at a cafĂ© in Westchester, N.Y. in May 2013.
“When her friends asked Hillary to tell them what she thought — really thought — about the president she had served for four draining years, she lit into Obama with a passion that surprised them all,” “Blood Feud” author Edward Klein wrote, according to the Post.
“The thing with Obama is that he can’t be bothered, and there is no hand on the tiller half the time. That’s the story of the Obama presidency. No hand on the f–king tiller…
“The IRS targeting the Tea Party, the Justice Department’s seizure of AP phone records and [Fox reporter] James Rosen’s e-mails — all these scandals. Obama’s allowed his hatred for his enemies to screw him the way Nixon did.”
And in a damning echo of conservative criticisms, Clinton called Obama’s foreign policy “incompetent and feckless.”
“Obama has turned into a joke,” Clinton said, according to Klein.
Klein’s book has been making headlines for a week with its allegations of a deep, visceral dislike between America’s two leading liberal families, but has been pretty much unchallenged in the public square, giving the impression that there’s more than a grain of truth to what he wrote.
Or as the old saying goes in politics and organized crime, “Never sue. They might prove it.”
