Boko Haram has long been a vile and despicable terrorist organization that has committed some of the most brutally heinous acts against humanity imaginable, but only now is the Obama State Department – with its hand forced – beginning to truly confront their atrocities.
For years Boko Haram has ruthlessly attacked Christians throughout Nigeria, indiscriminately slaughtering men, women, and children alike, and yet many on the Left have been nearly silent. Even worse, the Obama State Department did nothing.
Via CNN, Boko Haram attacks Nigerian village used by military in search for abducted girls Boko Haram launched a grisly attack on a Nigerian village in an area that troops had been using as a base in the search for hundreds of schoolgirls abducted by the militant group, witnesses told CNN on Wednesday. The hourslong assault on Gamboru Ngala that left at least 150 people | Read More »
Yesterday we reported on the revelation that the White House made a conscious decision to blame the sacking of our Benghazi consulate on a silly and sparsely distributed internet video called Innocence of Muslims. In an email distributed by Ben Rhodes, senior policy makers, among them Susan Rice, are told to 1) blame the internet video for the violence, 2) deflect attention from greater | Read More »
Just weeks after the New York Times’ asinine attempt to defend and cover up the Obama Administration’s disastrous response to the murder of four U.S. citizens, including our ambassador, in Benghazi, the U.S. State Department has now finally confirmed that “terrorist organizations” were behind the Benghazi attack.
I’m not exactly surprised by this, but I am rather troubled. WASHINGTON — The personal e-mail account of a State Department whistleblower was hacked, and four years worth of messages — some detailing alleged wrongdoing at the agency — were deleted, The Post has learned. The computer attack targeted the Gmail account of Diplomatic Security Service criminal investigator Richard Higbie, his lawyer, Cary Schulman, confirmed. | Read More »
It is widely assumed that Hillary Clinton is the front-runner for the 2016 Democrat nomination, if not a virtual lock on the candidacy. The only real question is whether Joe Biden puts his boss in a tough spot by launching a doomed campaign to wrestle the nomination away from Hillary. Our “objective” “news” media is already pumping up the Clinton candidacy by scheduling glowing biographies | Read More »

Quiet, but deadly. The decision to keep U.S. personnel in Benghazi with substandard security was made at the highest levels of the State Department by officials who have so far escaped blame over the Sept. 11 attack, according to a review of recent congressional testimony and internal State Department memos by Fox News. Nine months before the assault that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three | Read More »
The Obama administration is rapidly running out of wiggle room on the Keystone pipeline: The State Department’s long-awaited environmental report on the Keystone XL pipeline leaves President Barack Obama with no real scientific reason to reject the nation’s most fiercely debated energy project. The sprawling 2,000-page report, released late Friday afternoon, doesn’t issue a clear yea or nay on a sprawling section of pipeline that | Read More »
Last Friday, State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland, in an email to reporters, wrote: “We can confirm a terrorist blast at a check point on the perimeter of our embassy compound in Ankara, Turkey, at 1:13 p.m. local time. We are working closely with the Turkish national police to make a full assessment of the damage and the casualties, and to begin an investigation.” The suicide | Read More »
As Hillary Clinton takes to Capitol Hill to answer questions related to the attacks in Benghazi on September 11th of last year, it might be a good time to have a reminder of what the State Department and the administration’s initial response was to the act of terrorism.

The U.S. Embassy in Sanaa, Yemen was the latest to be stormed by rioting protesters, as American flags were burned outside the building and the stars and stripes flying atop it was pulled down and replaced with a white Islamic flag bearing the words “There is no god but Allah and Muhammad is His Messenger.”
Once again, the Department of State appears to have been completely unprepared for this action. Read more >>
Frankly, there’s not much I can say about this. These are the people who attacked us 11 years ago today, and we clearly have not learned 2 lessons in that time: first, their grievances are bulls*** – nothing more than hastily fabricated excuses to riot. One day it’s an offensive movie, the next day it’s U.S. troops in the Arabian Peninsula. They’re not concerned with | Read More »
