Something Wicked This Way Comes
“Barack Obama says we are at war with Al Qaeda, a group this same administration and those it listens to say is a diminished threat.” You’ll remember this scene from Jurassic Park. Direct from the script:Grant charges across the compound, a fire in his eyes, ahead of ELLIE, MALCOLM, and GENNARO. HAMMOND struggles to keep up.HAMMOND Dr. Grant, Dr. Grant?

‘Regime,’ is it?
The lack of self-respect in the Obama administration astounds me, sometimes. From the (probably-now abortive) pushback on the call to shut down repatriating AQ terrorists to Yemen: “I am aware of a lot of people pointing back at the way the transfers were handled under the Bush administration that apparently they have some concerns about that,” said the official, who had not seen the senators’ | Read More »

Another tradition goes by the wayside…… What a shame.

But in the past few years, that last part has been nixed from the program. In 2007, the Yemeni government began implementing an ambitious disarmament and weapons-registration campaign in | Read More »
