Museum Attack In Tunisian Capital Kills 19; 2 Gunmen Slain

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Foreign tourists scrambled in panic Wednesday after militants stormed a museum in Tunisia’s capital and killed 19 people, “shooting at anything that moved,” a witness said.

  Two gunmen were slain by security forces following the deadliest attack on civilians in the North African country in 13 years, and the president said the young democracy was embroiled in a war with terror.

  The militants, who wore military-style uniforms and wielded assault rifles, burst from a vehicle and began gunning down tourists climbing out of buses at the National Bardo Museum. The attackers then charged inside to take hostages before being killed in a firefight with security forces.

  Authorities launched a manhunt for two or three accomplices in the attack. Prime Minister Habib Essid said the two Tunisian gunmen killed 17 tourists — five from Japan, four from Italy, two from Colombia, two from Spain, and one each from Australia, Poland and France. The nationality of one dead foreigner was not released. Essid said two Tunisian nationals also were killed by the militants.

  At least 44 people were wounded, including tourists from Italy, France, Japan, South Africa, Poland, Belgium and Russia, according to Essid and doctors from Tunis’ Charles Nicolle.”

12 Dead In Attack On Paris Newspaper; France Goes On Alert

 

 

 

 

 

 

Masked gunmen stormed the Paris offices of a satirical newspaper Wednesday, killing 12 people before escaping, in France’s deadliest terror attack in at least two decades.

” France raised its alert to the highest level, and reinforced security at houses of worship, stores, media offices and transportation. Top government officials were holding an emergency meeting.

  The extremist Islamic State group has threatened to attack France, and minutes before the attack Charlie Hebdo had tweeted a satirical cartoon of that extremist group’s leader giving New Year’s wishes. Charlie Hebdo has been repeatedly threatened for publishing caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad, among other controversial sketches, and its offices were firebombed in 2011.”

 

 

    Voting for Palestinian statehood didn’t buy much goodwill for the French now , did it ?  But then again , appeasement has a proven track record of failure .

Chinese Authorities Say Train Station Attack In SW China That Left 27 Dead Is Terrorism Act

 

 

 

 

 

” China’s official Xinhua News Agency says authorities consider the attack by a group of knife-wielding assailants at a train station in southwestern China in which at least 27 people died to be an act of terrorism.

  Xinhua did not identify who might have been responsible for the Saturday evening attack at the Kunming Railway Station in Yunnan province. But the news agency said authorities considered it to be “an organized, premeditated violent terrorist attack.” “

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Benghazi Witnesses Testify – CIA Contractors Contradict Official Story

 

 

” Contractors described the cries for help that night by the state department personnel as “almost frantic” as they were pleading for help to save their lives.

   Westmoreland reports that when the CIA team arrived, they found the state department personnel unarmed, not “kitted up,” and in hiding. He also said that the testimony revealed that up to the point when the CIA contractors arrived at the compound, no shots had been fired from the American side of the conflict.

   This contradicts previous statements by the State Department-sponsored Accountability Review Board that stated the Americans inside were armed and had their security kits in use.”

 

    The lies continue to make their way to the surface . Benghazi should be the end of Hillary’s political ambitions but given the best efforts of the media in sweeping her malfeasance in the Benghazi affair under the rug and their desperate desire to see her become our first woman president the public at large will remain blissfully occupied with the doings of the Kardashian tribe and the newest smart phones rather than the corruption of the Obama administration and the State department under Hillary’s shameful “leadership” . 

    The lies and coverup of the Benghazi attacks have always been about preserving political viability , firstly Barack’s for 2012 and secondly Hillary’s in 2016 . The water-carriers in the MSM are not about to abandon all that they have invested in the Democratic party because a few Americans lost their lives to Obama/Clinton incompetence and selfishness . After all , “what difference does it make” ?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

After Nidal Hasan Admitted Helping The Taliban, Can We Treat The Fort Hood Massacre As A Terrorist Attack?

 

 

 

” Hasan’s defense now makes it clear that this is how he considers his actions. Despite the best attempts to cover up his actions, he stated in open court that he had acted to aid the Taliban.

The judge read from his request for a continuance, seeking to confirm Hasan’s defense: that he acted “because death or grievous harm was about to be inflicted on the members of the Taliban and Mullah [Mohammed] Omar specifically by the people against whom you used deadly force.”

“That is correct,” Hasan said.

There is no longer any dispute about Hasan’s motives or affiliations. He was acting to aid the Taliban after corresponding with an Al Qaeda leader.”

 

 

   When do we cease this charade that is “political correctness” and start acknowledging the truth ? This cult of multiculturalism gets exposed for the fraud that it is at every turn by the perpetrator’s own words and yet we are to believe that religion has nothing to do with it … they are “disturbed individuals” , “disenfranchised youth” or “enraged employees” but never terrorists . 

     At what point to we recognize the cultural and societal mass suicide that is the Left’s moral relativism and realize that the proponents of radical Islam will stop at  nothing to achieve their plainly stated goal of a world-wide Caliphate ?

Fireworks_Intrepid

 

” A late-night charity fireworks show on Manhattan’s West Side on Thursday night had residents fearing they were under attack.

It started late, at 10 p.m., and as CBS 2’s Hazel Sanchez reported Friday, many people were caught off guard.

As revelers aboard the Intrepid enjoyed fireworks lighting up the sky above the Hudson River, blasts echoed through West Side neighborhoods, leaving many residents fearing the worst.

“I thought we were actually coming under attack. I didn’t think fireworks. With everything that’s going on, it’s nerve-wracking,” resident Dahlia Rodriguez said.

The fireworks spectacle was the finale to an evening charity gala for North Shore-LIJ Health System, but nearly 100 unknowing and concerned locals had no idea and called 311.”

 

 

 

 

 

Benghazi Mom: “I Was Told That I’m Causing a Lot of Problems and To Shut Up”

 

 

 

 

 

” Before last year’s election, Patricia Smith, the mother of murdered Benghazi mission officer Sean Smith, spoke forcefully about getting to the truth of what happened.

Patricia Smith, the mother of slain State Department employee Sean Patrick Smith, is now blaming President Barack Obama for her son’s death.

“I believe that Obama murdered my son,” she said Thursday from the living room of her Clairemont home. “I firmly believe this.”

They don’t tell me much. They want me to shut up…. I was told, and I really would rather not say by who, [though] I can if you need it, but I was told that I’m causing a lot of problems and to shut up…. I told them ‘I will not! I will not shut up until I find out what really happened!’

The President? I cried on his shoulder. And I was crying there and he’s patting me on the back and looking around to who he’s gonna talk to next. So I didn’t feel any comfort there. Hillary? I cried on her shoulder also, but she paid a little attention to me then walked off.”

SEN. GRAHAM THREATENS TO BLOCK OBAMA’S CIA PICK FOR BENGHAZI ANSWERS

 

 

 

” In a statement released Tuesday, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) telegraphed that he would delay the confirmation of President Barack Obama’s CIA nominee John Brennan if the White House fails to answer questions about the Benghazi attacks.

“I do not believe we should confirm anyone as Director of the CIA until our questions are answered,” he declared.

Mr. Graham said that any effort on his part to delay the confirmation process was not directed at Mr. Brennan but rather was meant to get to the bottom of intelligence failures involved in the Benghazi fiasco. ”

 

 

New Tape Proves Obama Refused to Describe Benghazi Attack as Terrorism on 9-12

  “On Sunday, two days before the presidential election, CBS News released a video clip that proves two things. The clip is from President Barack Obama’s Sept. 12 interview with Steve Kroft of 60 Minutes. The newly release clip includes this exchange between the reporter and the president.

KROFT: Mr. President, this morning you went out of your way to avoid the use of the word terrorism in connection with the Libya Attack, do you believe that this was a terrorism attack?

OBAMA: Well it’s too early to tell exactly how this came about, what group was involved, but obviously it was an attack on Americans. And we are going to be working with the Libyan government to make sure that we bring these folks to justice, one way or the other.

KROFT: It’s been described as a mob action, but there are reports that they were very heavily armed with grenades, that doesn’t sound like your normal demonstration.

OBAMA: As I said, we’re still investigating exactly what happened, I don’t want to jump the gun on this. But your right that this is not a situation that was exactly the same as what happened in Egypt. And my suspicion is there are folks involved in this. Who were looking to target Americans from the start. So we’re gonna make sure that our first priority is to get our folks out safe, make sure our embassies are secured around the world and then we are going to go after those folks who carried this out. “

How The Administration Got In Trouble On Libya

 

 

  ” I suspect, although we will know for sure tomorrow night, that President Obama will claim organizational incompetence in connection with acknowledging that the Libya jihadist operation was, well, a planned jihadist operation.

The Associated Press reports how quickly confirmation came that this was not a spontaneous mob action. The AP tells us that within 24 hours of the attack “the CIA station chief in Libya reported to Washington that there were eyewitness reports that the attack was carried out by militants.” However, the report continues, “It is unclear who, if anyone, saw the cable outside the CIA at that point and how high up in the agency the information went. The Obama administration maintained publicly for a week that the attack on the diplomatic mission in Benghazi that killed U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans was a result of the mobs that staged less-deadly protests across the Muslim world around the 11th anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks on the U.S.” “

 

 

 ‘My son is not very optimal – he is also very dead.’

” This is not the first time Pat Smith, mother of one of the 4 Americans that were killed at the Benghazi consolate, has made comments showing disgust for how the Obama White House has handled the aftermath of the attack.  Recently, President Obama went on Comedy Central to discuss the infamous 9/11/2012 attack with host, John Stewart.  During the interview, President Obama stated that 4 Americans getting killed is ‘not optimal’.

Those comments unleashed a firestorm of Tweeted anger, condemning the comments.  Obama has a tendency to downplay serious issues, and this must have really gotten under the skin of Pat Smith.  She stated on MailOnline:

Speaking exclusively to MailOnline today, Pat Smith, whose son Sean died in the raid, said: ‘It was a disrespectful thing to say and I don’t think it’s right.”

“Multiple Pleas” For “More, Not Less” Security Staff

 

 

 ” The former head of a Special Forces “Site Security Team” in Libya tells CBS News that in spite of multiple pleas from himself and other U.S. security officials on the ground for “more, not less” security personnel, the State Department removed as many as 34 people from the country in the six months before a terrorist attack in Benghazi that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three others.

Lt. Col. Andy Wood will appear this week at a House Oversight Committee hearing that will examine security decisions leading up to the Sept. 11 terrorist attack on the U.S. compound in Benghazi.

Speaking to CBS News correspondent Sharyl Attkisson, Wood said when he found out that his own 16-member team and a six-member State Department elite force were being pulled from Tripoli in August – about a month before the assault in Benghazi – he felt, “like we were being asked to play the piano with two fingers. There was concern amongst the entire embassy staff.”

He said other staffers approached him with their concerns when the reduction in security personnel was announced.

“They asked if we were safe,” he told Attkisson. “They asked… what was going to happen, and I could only answer that what we were being told is that they’re working on it – they’ll get us more (security personnel), but I never saw that.” “
