Obama's DOD authorized superior thermal imaging sniper scopes for sale to Pakistan while U.S. troops get supplied with outdated weapons.

The facts behind the title of this post apparently haven't made the front page news but they were revealed in a lawsuit filed by none other that former Marine and Congressional Medal of Honor recipient, Dakota Meyer from Green County, Kentucky. It seems that Dakota Meyer took a job with B.A.E. Systems, a high tech military manufacturer, after leaving the Marine Corps. Meyer discovered that his employer had been authorized by the Defense Dept. to sell a state-of-the art thermal imaging sniper scope manufactured by B.A.E. Systems to the Islamic government of Pakistan while at the same time our troops in Afghanistan were being supplied with outdated equipment. Meyer sent emails to his employer complaining of this and was fired from his job. He then applied for a job with another company and was told he was unacceptable because his previous employer, B.A.E. Systems, had labeled him as having a drinking problem.
Here is a little background story on B.A.E. Systems from the web site Soldier Systems a Defense industry newsletter concerning the thermal imaging sniper scope.

OASYS Technology

Monday, May 23rd, 2011
Late last summer we mentioned that BAE Systems had acquired OASYS (OPTICAL ASSEMBLIES AND SYSTEMS) Technology. What we didn’t do is tell you the nuts and bolts of what OASYS actually does. They specialize in Electro-Optics and just happen to make, what are in our opinion, the hottest IR systems out there. In fact, you may already be using an OASYS product and not even realize it. JIEDDO has fielded thousands of Universal Thermal Monoculars (UTM) (and most recently SkeetIRs) through SPAWAR to troops in OEF and OIF to help look for IEDs. The UTM is also known as the StalkIR and can be mounted on weapons as well as used as a handheld device. It features dual band lasers and a modular chassis that can accommodate new technologies as they become available as well as allowing the device to be easily configured at the factory.
The most important factor in all of their designs is that they are custom products built to the client’s specifications. These uncooled LWIR sights can be turned on and put into action in less than four seconds and are controlled by a combination of hot buttons and an intuitive menu. Calibration is quickly accomplished when needed.
It is unclear if this particular model was being sold to Pakistan but the story concerning Dakota Meyer's experience with B.A.E. was covered in a story on Fox News.

Medal of Honor Marine Suing Contractor Is Not a 'Drinker,' Grandmother Say

Published November 30, 2011 |

The grandmother of Medal of Honor recipient Dakota Meyer, who has filed suit against a former employer over claims that he is mentally unstable and a problem drinker, came to the defense of her hero grandson on Wednesday, telling that, "I've never, ever known him to be a drinker."

Meyer, a 23-year-old Marine Corps sergeant who received the nation's highest honor from President Obama in a White House ceremony in September -- two years after his heroism was credited for saving 36 lives during a six-hour ambush in Afghanistan -- filed legal papers in Texas on Monday.
His lawsuit claims that defense contractor BAE Systems retaliated against him for objecting to the company's sale of high-tech sniper scopes to the Pakistani military. Meyer claims a manager at the British company said he was "mentally unstable" and had a "problem related to drinking in a social setting," according to the lawsuit.

Meyer wrote that it was "disturbing" how U.S. troops were being issued outdated equipment when better, advanced thermal optic scopes were being offered to Pakistan.
... BAE Systems spokesman Brian Roehrkasse, said the State Department -- not BAE -- makes the decision on which defense-related products can be exported, including those to Pakistan. 
It is bad enough to read that the one-time Muslim Barack Hussein Obama has changed the Rules of Engagement issued to our troops so that they must not carry a live round chambered in their weapons while on patrol or can they return fire coming from the enemy when they are being fired on from schools, hospitals or civilian dwellings. Now we know that Obama's Defense Department has authorized the sale of superior weapon systems to the Islamic government of Pakistan, the same government that allowed Osama bin Laden a safe haven.

Waking up The Silent Majority as Obama is shuting down his opposition.

The Department of Justice announced on Monday that it had seized 150 web sites that were selling counterfeit merchandise. Just as Cyber Monday was about to begin the Feds grabbed some publicity showing how much they were protecting consumers. What was not covered in the press was that another sinister force in America, CAIR, the Council on American Islamic Relations, was using its influence to shut down other web sites that voiced opposition to Islamic jihad in America. And, in spite of the U.S. Supreme Court ruling that Free Speech is more important than hurt feelings when they affirmed the right of the Westboro Baptist Church to carry signs saying "Thank God For Dead Soldiers" at military funerals, Congress has allowed the FCC to assume control over the Internet under the so-called Fairness Doctrine. Now, conservative opposition to Democratic Party Socialism is being silenced. Next up will be the conservative talk radio stations. Then that list of potential terrorists in America that were labeled by Homeland Security, you know, those people with the Pro-Life and 2nd Amendment bumper stickers and those military veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan will begin facing increased scrutiny. And don't forget, Barack Hussein Obama's reelection campaign Organizing For America web site has a section where his supporters can report any anti-Obama web sites. That has suddenly become a badge of honor to have your site listed there.
Silent Running – The Targeting of Americans

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton

Hear that? That’s the shredding of the Constitution and your rights as America sinks into a full-fledged police state. Not only are the government goons now shutting down more and more sites at an alarming rate (without due process), they are now putting their literal sights on Americans who fall under their personal definition of ‘terrorist.’ And the last time I read the Southern Poverty Law Center tripe, that included Tea Partiers, patriots, Christians, Libertarians, gun enthusiasts and pretty much anyone who does not toe the government line. Welcome to Obama’s Third Reich – American style…
While Americans were giving thanks for what little we have left, our politicians were cooking up a doozy of a surprise for us just in time for the holidays. And who can you thank for this poisonous present? Well, none other than Sens. Carl Levin (D-Mich.) and John McCain (R-Ariz.) – a Progressive on the Left and a Progressive on the Right. Now that’s bipartisanship to die for, literally.
From the ACLU via The Daily Sheeple:
The Senate is gearing up for a vote on Monday or Tuesday that goes to the very heart of who we are as Americans. The Senate will be voting on a bill that will direct American military resources not at an enemy shooting at our military in a war zone, but at American citizens and other civilians far from any battlefield — even people in the United States itself.

The Senate is going to vote on whether Congress will give this president—and every future president — the power to order the military to pick up and imprison without charge or trial civilians anywhere in the world. Even Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) raised his concerns about the NDAA detention provisions during last night’s Republican debate. The power is so broad that even U.S. citizens could be swept up by the military and the military could be used far from any battlefield, even within the United States itself.
The worldwide indefinite detention without charge or trial provision is in S. 1867, the National Defense Authorization Act bill, which will be on the Senate floor on Monday. The bill was drafted in secret by Sens. Carl Levin (D-Mich.) and John McCain (R-Ariz.) and passed in a closed-door committee meeting, without even a single hearing.
I know it sounds incredible. New powers to use the military worldwide, even within the United States? Hasn’t anyone told the Senate that Osama bin Laden is dead, that the president is pulling all of the combat troops out of Iraq and trying to figure out how to get combat troops out of Afghanistan too? And American citizens and people picked up on American or Canadian or British streets being sent to military prisons indefinitely without even being charged with a crime. Really? Does anyone think this is a good idea? And why now?
If that doesn’t make your blood run stone cold, I don’t know what will. I looked at the bill and it looks to me as if it is referring more to the Department of Justice and Homeland Security than the military, but hey, either way, it’s a crap sandwich for Constitutional Conservatives like me and all other patriotic Americans. I can’t stand the ACLU, but this time they are right and people better pay attention. If I’m wrong about the military angle on this, then our boys and girls will be forced to turn on Americans or be ‘disciplined.’ That could be a life and death decision for them. Pray for our troops – I know in my heart they will not turn on their family and friends. They would be forced into a blatant violation of the Posse Comitatus Act and that would be the final straw to break in the birth pains of a civil war.
I don’t know about you, but I’m sick and tired of elitists telling us we are overreacting, while legislation is being crafted and debated in secret, while we lose more and more of our freedoms with each passing day. All of us should be royally pissed off. You don’t actually think these asshat politicians have our best interests and security in mind do you? Damned right they don’t. They want to control us, enslave us, shut us up and close us down. I know that I won’t go down without a fight, what say you?
If they pass this monstrosity, they can come to your home in the dead of night and take you with no due process and you will simply disappear. They will never give the reason – the fact they consider you an enemy of the State will be all it takes. That’s not America. That’s a fascist totalitarian State and I’ve got news for America – it will happen if the Progressives stay in power. Many, many will disappear and many more will die.
The vote on this either happened today or will take place tomorrow. Remember who voted and how. I know Udall out of Utah was presenting an amendment that would neutralize a lot of this, but I don’t hold a lot of optimism that he will prevail.
From InfoWars:
“I would also point out that these provisions raise serious questions as to who we are as a society and what our Constitution seeks to protect,” Colorado Senator Mark Udall said in a speech last week. One section of these provisions, section 1031, would be interpreted as allowing the military to capture and indefinitely detain American citizens on U.S. soil. Section 1031 essentially repeals the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878 by authorizing the U.S. military to perform law enforcement functions on American soil. That alone should alarm my colleagues on both sides of the aisle, but there are other problems with these provisions that must be resolved.”
Convinced yet? Silent running indeed. I suggest you buy food, silver and keep a gun by your door.
I think we all need to start reading Thomas Paine's The Crisis to get the feeling that we are on the verge of another American Revolution. For surely, "These are the times that try men's souls."

Obama crony "Tony" Rezko sentenced to 10 1/2 years in Chicago corruption scandal. Will a presidential Christmas pardon soon be in the works?

The Chicago Sun newspaper reported 3 days ago that Barack Hussein Obama's Chicago crony, Anthony "Tony" Rezko, was sentenced to 10 1/2 years in Federal prison for his corrupt kickback schemes that involved equally corrupt and likewise convicted former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich. Of course we all know that Chicago has one of the most corrupt political systems in the country and was the starting ground for community organizer and Harvard professor Barack Hussein Obama. Now I'll wager that Rezko won't get to spend much of that prison sentence behind bars. Obama will likely include him in his annual list of Christmas pardons.
Tony Rezko sentenced to 10-1/2 years in kickback scheme 
But the onetime top fund-raiser to Rod Blagojevich and former friend of Barack Obama remained steady even as St. Eve handed down a 10 ½ year sentence for corruption, describing Rezko’s actions during the former governor’s tenure as “selfish and corrupt.” 
But the National Tea Party group has a bit more information about this story that the Chicago newspapers didn't feel inclined to remind us. The following comes from an email I received from them today.
If the name "Rezko" sounds familiar, it should. That's because Mr. Rezko, a notorious Chicago slumlord, helped a little-known Chicago-area State Senator (who incidentally had just published a book) get a sweetheart deal on a house in Chicago's ritzy Hyde Park (unofficial slogan: "Home of the One-Percenters!"). (Story here):
The (then) junior senator from Illinois has been answering questions on Rezko's involvement in the house purchase since news of it broke in 2006. In the 2005 deal, Obama purchased a house for $300,000 less than its owners were asking, and Rezko simultaneously bought the adjacent lot from the same seller at full price. Obama denies there was anything unusual about the price disparity. He says the price on the house was dropped because it had been on the market for some time but that the price for the adjacent land remained high because there was another offer.
Obama called it "bone-headed" to have engaged in financial dealings with the wealthy Chicago political operative, particularly as federal agents were reported to have been investigating Rezko for alleged corruption. He has also said he was "confident that everything was handled ethically and above board."
The new revelations appear to indicate Obama had involved Rezko at an earlier stage of his home buying process than was previously known, and left many wondering why he had not shared the information sooner.
Perhaps we are being a tad unfair to Mr. Rezko as it's not as if he's Mr. Obama's only questionable friend. The exclusive "Friend of Barrack's" club includes terrorist (and ghostwriter) Bill Ayers, rabid anti-Semite and racist Louis Farrakhan, anti-American Communist "poet" Frank Marshall Davis, radical professor and Palestinian apologist Rashid Khalidi, radical Chicago priest Michael Pfleger, Sacramento Mayor (and former NBA star) Kevin Johnson (who embezzled $800,000 from AmeriCorps) and many more.
There is an Aesop's fable which taught us, "you are known by the company you keep" and Mr. Obama's friends speak volumes about the kind of man that he is.
Yeah, and there is another fable about 'birds of a feather who flock together'. And no one wants one of those birds to start singing so there is some incentive to release him from the 'bird cage'.
Hey, Tony, I realize this is just an after thought but you realize you will have to stay in prison for at least another year before you can hope to get a pardon. Obama can't afford to tarnish his reputation by issuing a pardon before the 2012 elections. That would be too obvious. Sorry about having to remind you about this.

This Thanksgiving the Pilgrims are turning over in their graves.

America was founded by Christians. There is no argument about this because the first settlers to arrive here were the Pilgrims aboard the Mayflower. The first Thanksgiving was a peaceful celebration that brought together the Pilgrims and the Native Americans. We have since become a melting pot that has attracted the cultures and religions of every country in the world because we place such a high value on freedom and liberty. But one culture that masquerades as a religion, that refuses to blend in with what every other American takes for granted and who strive to impose their own Islamic Sharia Law upon all of us, are the followers of Islam, many of whom continue to wage war on our way of life. Thankfully, for the rest of us, that culture is still a very small minority.
But this year on Thanksgiving something strange has entered our lives. Our dominant culture that is based upon our Judeo-Christian principles is being hijacked by that small minority of pagan worshipers. Our Thanksgiving turkeys from one company are being processed according to Islamic law. They are being slaughtered according to Islamic Halal standards which include blessing them in the name of Allah. The U.S. Department of Agriculture web site defines this practice in these words:
Halal is an Islamic religious term used to describe food that is “lawful” to eat. It is similar to Kosher in the Jewish religion in many ways. Many slaughterhouses in the United States already meet the standards set by the American Muslim community for Halal status. The USDA has had a policy on Halal labeling in effect since 1996. Halal requirements are not difficult to meet, and the USDA believes that any American slaughterhouse should be able to comply with the new Halal policy. The general requirements for Halal slaughter state that the animal must be humanely treated en route to and at the slaughterhouse. The throat must be slit in a certain way, while the word “Allah” (God) is said. The blood must be drained from the body. It is vital that the sheep carcass does not come in contact with pork, or anything that has ever touched pork, at the slaughterhouse.
So if you want your food to be blessed and sacrificed to a pagan moon god before you eat it then make sure you buy a Butterball turkey this Thanksgiving even if you don't understand why it is necessary to pander to 0.06% of our population. And last night when this was reported on the news, a representative from Butterball simply said their turkeys are slaughtered according to USDA standards. As the satirical Australian web site, Winds of Jihad reported today:
If you’re going to be at home for Thanksgiving, better buy that turkey quick so it has time to thaw. But unless you’re a Religion of Peacenik, don’t buy it from the Islamopanderers at Butterball:

Customer service representatives from Butterball, one of America’s most popular Turkey brands, confirmed to WND that the company’s whole turkeys are — without being labeled as such — slaughtered according to Islamic “halal” standards.

“Halal slaughter involves cutting the trachea, the esophagus and the jugular vein and letting the blood drain out while saying, ‘Bismillah allahu akbar’ — ‘in the name of Allah the greatest,’” explains Pamela Geller, author of “Stop the Islamization of America: A Practical Guide to the Resistance.” “Many people refuse to eat it on religious grounds. Many Christians, Hindus or Sikhs and Jews find it offensive to eat meat slaughtered according to Islamic ritual.” 
The Bible commands Christians to “keep themselves from things offered to false gods” (Acts 15:20). Christians make up over 78% of the US population.
Imam Obama confers his blessings upon a fellow turkey.
Muslims constitute such a tiny percentage (0.6%) that staging Islamic rituals at a turkey processing plant could only be done for sociopolitical reasons: that is, to advance sharia, dhimmitude, and Islamization out of sheer moonbattery.
UPDATE, November 25, 2011
If you are curious about the turkey you bought for Thanksgiving and want to know if it was slaughtered according to the Islamic Halal procedure you need to check the package label for a Halal logo. There are dozens of different logos that all certify that the turkey was blessed with an invocation to Allah when it was killed. Here is a small sample of those logos and here is a link to Google Images that shows dozens of additional logos.


Best slogan for the 2012 elections.

Thanks to my friend Mary Ann for this message.

The best line I've heard lately was from a shop foreman at the old Republic Steel plant in Cleveland when this young black kid was being laid off.

The black kid said to the shop foreman: "You're firing me because I'm black!"

The boss said, "No, we hired you because you were black. We're firing you because you are useless!"
Sounds like a possible slogan for the 2012 election...

Now we know why the New York City Police Dept. wasn't interested in coordinating their latest Muslim bomb maker investigation with the FBI.

This just posted by Jihad Watch from a story in the UK Guardian newspaper. Updating my commentary from yesterday on same subject.
Keystone Kops: FBI twice declined to investigate NY jihad bomb plotter Muhammad Yusuf Why did they conclude he wasn't a serious threat? 

Perhaps because he had no ties to al-Qaeda or some other jihad terror groups. He was just a guy with lengthy collections of jihad hadiths on his website. And that's just religious verbiage, right, FBI? No one pays attention to that stuff, eh?
"New York bomb suspect Jose Pimentel not a serious terror threat: FBI sources," by Karen McVeigh for the Guardian, November 21 (thanks to Pamela Geller):
The FBI did not pursue a case against an alleged al-Qaida sympathiser accused of plotting to blow up police and military personnel because it believed he was mentally unstable and incapable of pulling it off, officials said on Monday. Investigators from the New York Police Department, which announced the arrest of Dominican-born US citizen Jose Pimentel, 27, at a press conference late on Sunday night, sought to involve the FBI at least twice.
But both times the FBI concluded he wasn't a serious threat, according to officials who spoke to the Associated Press.
Pimentel "didn't have the predisposition or the ability to do anything on his own," said one of the officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity....
On a YouTube channel linked to him, Pimentel – who also goes by the name Muhammad Yusaf – he describes himself as a "Sunni Muslim brother" from the Dominican Republic living in Harlem, whose interests include "watching videos of YouTube, working out, reading and learning all aspects of the only true religion of all the prophets: Islam."
How did he end up misunderstanding his peaceful religion so spectacularly? Imam Rauf? Mr. Hooper? Mr. Aslan? Mr. Schwartz? Anyone? Anyone?
And maybe this answers my question about why this convert to Islam (or any other convert to this phony religion of peace) suddenly became a radical hater of America. Also from today's post in Jihad Watch and the best quote of the day: “My son was a normal American guy,” she said. “He did what young people do. Then he became a Muslim and he changed.”...
Mother of NY jihad bomb plotter: "My son was a normal American guy....Then he became a Muslim and he changed." 

Muhammad Yusuf's mother, Carmen Sosa, says he began changing when he converted to Islam and started reading the Qur'an. Her account here contradicts that of the unnamed New York authorities who said that he wasn't very religious, and was a drinker and marijuana user. I wonder who knows him better: his mother, or some politically correct, compromised cop inside a willfully blind NYPD?
"Terror suspect Jose Pimentel’s mom says sorry to city: ‘I feel very bad ... I thank the police,’" by Henrick Karoliszyn, Glenn Blain and Tracy Connor for the New York Daily News, November 21 (thanks to all who sent this in):
The mother of homegrown terror suspect Jose Pimentel says she loves the city — and her son. “I want to apologize to the City of New York,” Carmen Sosa, 56, said Monday in the lobby of a Harlem apartment building.
“I love the city. I’ve been here since 1987 and I’m very disappointed with what my son was doing. I didn’t raise him that way.
“I feel very bad about the situation. I thank the police. They did what they’re supposed to do.”
Sosa said her son’s personality began to change after the then-teenager swapped salsa for Islam about five years ago.
“My son was a normal American guy,” she said. “He did what young people do. Then he became a Muslim and he changed.”...
Schenectady County District Attorney Robert Carney said there was nothing in Pimentel’s court file “speaking to anything about terrorism” — but the suspect’s mother was getting worried about his fascination with Islam.
When he started reading the Koran in 2001, Sosa wasn’t happy because she’s a Catholic, but she noted that “in beginning, he wasn’t a fanatic.”
“He prayed and went to the mosque,” she said.
Over time, he stopped writing and listening to salsa music and spent his days praying, reading and sleeping.

Obama's plan to bankrupt America and disarm the military is right on track.

The bad news from our nation’s capitol is that the Debt Super Committee, a group of lawmakers that was assembled without any constitutional authority, has been unable to reach an agreement on reducing the national debt. Consider that this committee was comprised of 6 Republicans and 6 Democrats, all voting along party lines, it could reasonably be anticipated that it was never designed to work. But that is not the worst part of the present situation. The Super Committee was working under a very real threat that if it failed to agree on a solution an automatic trigger would cause budget cuts to take place to reduce 1.2 Trillion dollars from the 2013 budget. That 1.2 Trillion dollar budget cut would be spread across every Federal department equally based upon the total dollar amount of their budgets. That means that vital services such as the Defense Department, Social Security and Medicare would be reduced by an equal percentage alongside non-vital services such as the Departments of Education, Energy and Interior. At a time when America is involved in two wars and faces daily threats from terrorist activity and also, until the Supreme Court decides against the Obama socialized medicine law, an additional 500 million dollar reduction in Medicare for the elderly, we cannot afford to cut an anticipated $450 Billion from national defense.

If the government was serious in reducing spending they would eliminate all non-essential departments that do not produce vital services. The Departments of Education, Energy and Interior do not provide any vital services, they are all bloated with high-salaried bureaucrats. Does anyone really know what benefit the Dept. of Education provides to our nation’s school system aside from making our education system one of the worst in the world? Instead of cutting waste in government, Obama arranged for huge bailouts and loans to companies that were friendly supporters of the Democratic Party. Obama took control of General Motors and turned a third of the company’s assets over to the United Auto Workers union which had helped him get elected. Obama bailed out Chrysler Group LLC, the giant auto maker and ordered 700 plus dealerships closed. Guess which one’s? The dealerships that were shut down were owned by a majority of Republicans in cities where they were in competition with other dealerships owned by Democrats that were unaffected. In the first two years since his election in 2008, when the Democrats controlled both houses of Congress, they virtual raped and pillaged the U.S. Treasury as if they were a conquering hoard and they borrowed heavily from China to give the money to their own supporters.

If any rational person were to propose a drastic cut in national defense in these times of need they would immediately fall under suspicion of doing something unpatriotic. But by tying those defense cuts to the agreements of an unconstitutional committee that was designed to fail we are now facing a grave potential danger to our national security.

Barack Hussein Obama has never been a friend or ally of our military. He instituted stupefying changes in the soldiers Rules of Engagement that placed every member of our Armed Forces at risk on the battlefields in Iraq and Afghanistan. Rules such as not being allowed to have a live round chambered in readiness while on patrol, or not being allowed to fire on the enemy until they shoot first or not being allowed to fire back if the enemy is using a school or hospital or civilian dwelling for cover as they often did. 

Barach Hussein Obama has never been a friend or ally of the United States of America, either. He bowed before the Muslim king of Saudi Arabia and stifled our own domestic oil production making us more dependent on oil from the Middle-East. He supplicated himself before the communist dictators of China and through the interest on their loans helped boost China's military development. 
Raised as a Muslim in Indonesia, adopted by a Muslim step-father and a mother who associated with communists and leftists. Obama can truly be called the man who never was because his past documentation is hidden from public scrutiny and questionable documents such as a forged birth certificate follow him everywhere. His own so-called autobiography appears to have been written by a left-wing radical from the Weather Underground named Bill Ayers who admitted to bombing the Pentagon and killing policemen in the 1970’s. He spent 20 years attending church services at a grossly anti-American church listening to sermons by the Rev. Jeremiah Wright who constantly condemned America for every problem in the world.
He has added two leftist Justices to the Supreme Court and considering the age of some of the remaining Justices, if Obama has another four years in the White House he will surely replace a few more of them with his left-wing cronies that will strip away the remaining rights and liberty all Americans enjoy today.  By that time, disarming our military would be the least of our problems because he would certainly nullify our right to bear arms.

Censorship in the news or just another liberal coverup. How the news reported the latest NYC bomb plot by another Muslim convert.

Fox News didn't mention it, the New York Daily News didn't say it and neither did the New York Times or the Associated Press. Only one news source covered the whole story about the latest arrest in New York City of an alleged Islamic terrorist and that was ABC World News. On their broadcast last night, weekend anchor David Muir opened the story about the man arrested by the New York City police by saying: Jose Pimentel, a recent convert to Islam, was arrested for allegedly making bombs in New York City. And on their web site, ABC World News carries the story today:
Alleged 'Lone Wolf' Arrested in New York on Terror Charges
A Muslim convert arrested for allegedly making bombs in New York City was inspired by radical cleric Anwar Awlaki and was allegedly plotting to attack U.S. servicemen and police officers, according to officials.

A five-count criminal complaint against Jose Pimentel of Washington Heights says that Pimentel planned "to build a bomb and use a bomb to assassinate U.S. servicemen and women returning from active duty in Iraq and Afghanistan."

New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg said during a press conference this evening that Pimentel, an unemployed loner who lives with his mother, also wanted to kill police officers, and called him a "27-year-old al Qaeda sympathizer."
And further down in the story:
An American citizen, Pimentel was born in the Dominican Republic and came to the United States at age eight. After converting to Islam, he went by the name Muhammed Yusef.
Also noteworthy is the fact that the New York City Police Commissioner said that his department did not coordinate their actions with the Federal government about this investigation. Even the mayor of New York, Michael Bloomberg, who has had so much praise for Muslims and the Ground Zero mosque project, couldn't bring himself to admit that this bomb maker, like so many others before him, was another Muslim inspired by the teachings of Islam to hate America. Some critics say that the U.S. Dept. of Homeland Security is too concerned with Right Wing terrorists such as Armed Forces veterans, Pro-Life groups and NRA members (see  (U//FOUO) Rightwing Extremism: Current. Economic and Political Climate Fueling. Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment.) and couldn't spot a Muslim terrorist unless he left his camel in an airport parking lot. So its encouraging to read about the great work being done by the NYPD.
It was widely reported that the New York City Police Department has already developed an extensive intelligence division with the help of the CIA that has infiltrated mosques and other Muslim groups. The NYPD has a published a 90-page report NYPD Radicalization in the West: The Homegrown Threat available online that describes their purpose and rationale.  Fox News did report more on why the New York City police department acted alone on this arrest.
The New York Police Department's Intelligence Division was involved in the arrest. Kelly said Pimentel spent most of his years in Manhattan and lived about five years in Schenectady. He said police in Albany tipped New York City police off to Pimentel's activities.

Asked why federal authorities were not involved in the case, Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance Jr. said there was communication with them but his office felt that given the timeline "it was appropriate to proceed under state charges."

About 1,000 of the city's roughly 35,000 officers are assigned each day to counterterrorism operations. The NYPD also sends officers overseas to report on how other cities deal with terrorism. Through federal grants and city funding, the NYPD has spent millions of dollars on technology to outfit the department with the latest tools -- from portable radiation detectors to the network of hundreds of cameras that can track suspicious activity.
Considering the fact that the Department of Defense, the FBI and the Justice Department have all purged any mention of Islam from their training manuals in connection with terrorism, it is perfectly understandable why the NYPD chooses to act alone to combat this very real threat. One can only wonder why there are so many people who convert to Islam see a reason afterward to try and kill Americans. New York City alone has stopped 13 terrorist plots just since 9-11-2001. Not a single one involved any religion other than Islam.

Liberal media protecting Obama at all costs, ignores an abundance of scandals.

Determined to protect Obama at all costs, the liberal media are turning a blind eye to an abundance of scandals involving this administration. This media white-washing of Obama is misleading millions and putting our nation in peril. The Media Research Center is calling out the media, and needs your immediate help. See details and action items below.
Your friends at Grassroots Action

+ + + + + + + + + +

From the Desk of:
David Martin, Executive Vice President

Lies, scandal & coverup: the liberal media are working hand in glove with the White House on all three.  Whether it’s simply ignoring major scandals – like 80% of stimulus green energy money going to top Obama donors – or helping Atty. General Eric Holder by repeating his lies on what he knew and when he knew it on Fast & Furious, the liberal media couldn’t be any deeper in President Obama’s pocket.

The liberal media make it their business to savage conservatives at every turn; they do so without regard for facts or details of any perceived scandal. They even create scandals where none exist. But when our multi-millionaire Vice President charges rent to the Secret Service ( i.e. . . the taxpayers) who are at his home to protect him, the media look the other way.

We’ve compiled a partial list of some of the biggest administration scandals of 2011. Click here to see the list and to demand the media stop lying, hiding and spinning for the White House.

The White House pressuring a top general to change his Congressional testimony regarding Pentagon fears about a company’s cell network interfering with military communications is a major scandal and one that endangers our national security.

The scandal gets bigger when it comes to light that the company, LightSquared, is owned by major Obama donors.  It get bigger yet when it comes to light that the President himself was an early investor in the company.  Yet the liberal media are content to ignore a bombshell like this, simply because it will damage their hero at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

Click here for the full report and to take action:
Most recently, it has come to light that the Obama Administration has handed a no-bid, half billion contract to make a smallpox drug of dubious value to a company owned by a major Obama backer.  Readers of Michelle Malkin’s column at now all of the details of this shocking Chicago-style corruption, but those millions of Americans who rely solely on the network newscasts, are completely unaware.
Roll in the fact that as the various Occupy protests around the country devolve in violent mobs, the media have decided not to mention Barack Obama’s embarrassing support of the Occupy Wall Street movement.

This double standard is poisoning our nation

Nelson, this gets to the very heart of liberal media bias.  Any hint of a scandal, no matter how dubious the source or how little information there may be, if it involves a conservative, the liberal media will shout it from the rooftops. But if a scandal might damage a liberal, major newspapers and television networks all keep their mouths shut hoping no one will hear of it!  Simply consider the so-called “sex scandals” of Herman Cain and John McCain compared to the hush-hush treatment for liberal presidential candidate John Edwards (who is now under indictment).

Yet the waterfall of scandals pouring out of this White House are routinely ignored until Congressional subpoenas are flying, and even then, White House spin is reported as fact.

Click here for the list of some of the biggest scandals and to demand the media stop lying, hiding and spinning for the White House.

A healthy republic requires an informed citizenry, and by the media’s malpractice on the many, many scandals of an administration right out of the Chicago political machine, they are robbing U.S. citizens of the information that they need to make informed choices at the ballot box.
Please share our roundup of scandals with your friends and family.  Ask them to take action with you, by signing our petition demanding the media stop spinning for President Obama.
Thank you for standing with us at this crucial hour.

Impeach Justice Kagan if she won't recuse herself during the Supreme Court Obamacare case.


NEW PETITION!  Ask Congress to impeach Justice Elena Kagan if she refuses to recuse herself from hearing the Obamacare case NFIB v. Sebelius.  Please select, sign, and WE WILL FAX your petition
to all 535 members of Congress (saving you time!)

Justice Elena Kagan won't recuse herself from deciding Obamacare case.  Take action!

Associate Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan has declined to recuse herself from ruling on the upcoming Obamacare case NFIB v. Sebelius, to be decided next summer, joined by 26 states arguing that abortion-funding nationalized health insurance is unconstitutional.  

A new poll shows 47% oppose Obamacare, 42% favor, and 11% are undecided.  But Justice Elena Kagan recently declined to recuse herself from deciding this case.

Kagan personally strategized, and her office lobbied to pass the "Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act" (Obamacare) when she served as President Obama's Solicitor General, making Kagan highly biased today.  How can a judge impartially decide whether a law she helped write and lobbied to pass is valid?  She cannot.

Federal law requires judges recuse themselves in such cases, so KAGAN NOW VIOLATES THE LAW AND SHOULD BE IMPEACHED if she refuses to recuse.

Friends, we fought against the pro-abortion funding provisions of Obamacare by faxing over a million petitions to Congress.  We fought against Kagan's appointment to the Supreme Court with nearly a quarter million petitions.  We helped persuade 26 state attorneys general to join the lawsuit NFIB v. Sebelius to defeat Obamacare in court.

We're now joining the final battle at the Supreme Court of the United States, to defeat Obamacare permanently, but one biased Justice Elena Kagan could decide our fate.

We've created a BRAND-NEW PETITION to all 535 members of the House and Senate, first delivered by fax to both Judiciary Committees and to Justice Kagan herself.  We're joining 40+ other organizations who co-signed a similar letter to House Judiciary Committee Chairman Lamar Smith (R-TX, 202-225-4236), demanding hearings.  We're adding to this our own demand that Congress impeach and remove Kagan from office if she won't recuse herself, because she now violates the law she has sworn to uphold.  

Let's take one final stand against Obamacare.  Take action today...

SELECT HERE TO SIGN PETITION, and we will instantly fax all 535 Congressmen and Senators demanding impeachment hearings if Justice Elena Kagan does not recuse herself from the Obamacare case NFIB v. Sebelius. (Saving you much time and postage!)

Our petition reads: "Justice Kagan is biased and cannot fairly decide this case, because as President Obama’s Solicitor General she was directly involved in promoting and defending the 'Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act' (Obamacare). 

"Justice Kagan herself admitted during her Supreme Court Confirmation hearings before the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee that she was present for 'at least one' meeting in which the PPACA litigation was discussed.  Documents obtained through the Freedom of Information Act indicate Justice Kagan actively participated with her Obama Administration colleagues in formulating a defense of the PPACA.

"Her former deputy at OSG, Neal Katyal openly admits this, and should be subpoenaed and forced to turn over all records.  Katyal’s emails stated in January 2010 that:  'Elena would definitely like OSG to be involved in this set of issues.'  Then after the first strategy meeting, Katyal emphasized his interest in getting her entire office 'heavily involved even in the dct' [District Court].

"Kagan personally appointed Katyal in early 2010 to meet and discuss strategy for defending the health care bill from anticipated legal challenges. Katyal’s emails say 'Absolutely right on.  Let’s crush them.  I’ll speak to Elena and designate someone,' after which Kagan designated Katyal, confirming her own desire to 'crush' the opponents of Obamacare.

"U.S. Law, 28 U.S.C. § 455(b)(3) mandates that a judge or justice recuse themselves if the justice has 'served in governmental employment and in such capacity participated as counsel, advisor or material witness concerning the proceeding or expressed an opinion concerning the merits of the particular case in controversy.'

"Please hold HEARINGS, IMPEACH and REMOVE Justice Elena Kagan from her office if she declines to recuse herself from any Obamacare case, like NFIB v. Sebelius."  

SELECT HERE TO SIGN PETITION, and we will instantly fax all 535 Congressmen and Senators demanding impeachment hearings if Justice Elena Kagan does not recuse herself from the Obamacare case NFIB v. Sebelius. (Saving you much time and postage!)

Friends, our Supreme Court will soon decide if Obamacare and it's pro-abortion tax-funding is Constitutional.  Let's take a stand today, and demand Justice Kagan recuse herself, or face impeachment hearings.  
God Bless you, in Jesus' name,

Beware of the cornered Rat.

Aside from the historical fact that rats spread the plague throughout Europe during the Dark Ages, rats have always been known as the purveyors of dirty deeds. One of the most dangerous aspects of rats becomes evident when they are backed into a corner and must fight to survive. But enough with the allegory, we all know of one cornered rat that we must all be wary of: Barack Hussein Obama, who's approval ratings have plummeted and continued employment is in grave jeopardy. The cornered rat is known to kill its own kind for survival and we have seen the ballyhooed demise of Osama bin Laden and Anwar al-Awlaki authorized by fellow Muslim Barack Hussein Obama, which may be proof positive. Now we see the escalating violence being committed by the leftist, pro-communist Occupy Wall Street gang which has been endorsed and encouraged by the usurper in the White House and the rising number of arrests by local police.  I still think that Obama is following his old adviser Rahm Emanuel's strategy to "Never let a crisis go to waste" and hopes to make political capitol from his endorsed legions occupying our cities. But in order to postpone his inevitable defeat in next year's election, Obama needs to remove the elections from the equation problem. So watch and see if Obama calls out the National Guard or even the U.S. Army to squash the protesters and make a big display of his strong action to protect public safety to improve his image and while doing so declare Martial Law across our land. These are the necessary steps for a petty dictator to stay in office when he finds himself backed into a corner. And don't make any bets that he would try to protect his comrades in the process.

Why does Islam remind me of George Orwell's "Animal Farm"?

Aside from the unintended symbolic pigs that were the main characters in George Orwell's classic denunciation of totalitarian movements, the "Animal Farm", whenever I come across some news item from a predominantly Muslim country about the persecution of minority religions I am reminded of the famous scene from the movie. In the animated 1954 feature movie "Animal Farm", the animals were stirred into a revolt and the instigators had painted a sign on the side of the barn that said: "All Animals are Created Equal." Then the farmer was driven off his farm and the animals took over with the corrupt pigs in charge. Overnight, someone added a new message to the sign on the barn that said: "But some are more equal than others."
In Indonesia, where Barack Hussein Obama was raised as a Muslim and learned how to salute the flag by placing his hands over his crotch, there is a professed belief that Islam is tolerant of all other religions. At least that is the official perception portrayed in the gullible leftist news media. But then one reads news items from sources within Indonesia that paint a much different picture. Like this story from AsiaNews reposted at Jihad Watch:
Indonesia: Mayor blocks all access roads to church, in defiance of court order

This is the same mayor who earlier decided that churches can't be built on streets with "Islamic" names. How higher levels of government respond to this latest escalation will determine whether we see more officials like Mayor Budiarto emerge in Indonesia. Behavior that is rewarded by inaction is likely to be repeated and intensified, as Budiarto's own track record in Bogor has shown.
"Moderate" Indonesia is paralyzed with indecision for the sake of saving face: it does not want to make a high-profile, public decision that would stop Muslims from enforcing Sharia over the constitution. It wants legislation that looks good on paper, and to have the dust settle quietly in practical matters at some point. When Islamic supremacists gain sufficient strength, the legislation will catch up.
"Bogor: mayor shuts down access roads to Yasmin Church, thus breaking the law," from Asia News, November 14:
Bogor (AsiaNews) – Bogor Christians celebrated Mass at home yesterday. After the ban on meeting at their church, members of the Yasmin Church (KGI) were not allowed to hold their Sunday service in the street. Despite criticism and international focus on the case, Bogor Mayor Diano Budiarto continues to refuse to bow to public opinion and a court order. In his latest action, he has exceeded his authority and blocked all access roads to the Yasmin Church. A dozen of local plainclothes security agents and uniformed police did not however prevent anti-Christian extremists from blocking one access road to the place of worship. In the end, Christian worshipers went to the home of a parishioner to celebrate Sunday service.
This is the first time in months that this happens since Budiarto’ decision to freeze the construction of the church despite the fact that the congregation had all the right permits.
In a message to AsiaNews, a KGI spokesman, attorney Bona Sigalingging, said that opposition to the church comes from the Muslim Indonesia Communications Forum (Forkami), an organisation chaired by Ahmad Iman, a local extremist.
Read the rest here.
Or perhaps this story, also from Jihad Watch, about an item published in Time magazine.
Indonesia: Muslim violence against religious minorities "relentless" 

When even the reliably dhimmi Time Magazine notices Muslim intolerance and persecution of people of other faiths (and "heretical" Muslims like the Ahmadis), you know the situation has gotten very bad in modern, moderate Indonesia. "The Other Indonesia," by Emily Rauhala in Time Magazine, November 21:
[...] A key measure of the level of justice and compassion in any society is how it treats its minorities — often its most vulnerable citizens. On that score, Indonesia, the world's most populous Muslim country, is failing. In the past year, public violence against religious minorities, who together make up about 12% of the 240 million population, has been relentless: there has been a slew of incidents, from burnings and bombings of churches to attacks by radical Muslims on moderates. The authorities appear unable or unwilling to firmly intervene.
Further down in this story is this enlightened admission, the statement that so much reminded me of the message on the barn wall in the Animal Farm.
I raised the Ahmadiyah verdict with Suryadharma Ali, Indonesia's Minister of Religious Affairs, one of whose responsibilities is to keep the peace among all faiths. Suryadharma was unapologetic in tone: he said Indonesia respects religious freedom, but that minorities could not use that freedom to "completely modify" Islamic beliefs. He also defended regulations that ban Ahmadis from proselytizing or openly practicing their faith. The minister compared antagonism toward Ahmadis to flag burning: "Your country would get angry if you burned their flag. And the case of religion is higher than the flag." Perhaps so, but for Indonesia to be truly the modern, moderate society it claims to be, it needs to show through word and deed that it will not tolerate intolerance.
Well, at least Saudi Arabia isn't as hypocritical as Indonesia when it comes to other religions. If you are stupid enough to go there and your intentions are not to become a martyr for your faith, don't think of carrying a bible or a cross because it is against the law and they have an official religious police to enforce it. And there are NO churches (or synagogues) in Saudi Arabia at all. They are outlawed by Islamic Sharia Law. But they do have someone from America who bows before their king.

Arming the terrorists: What no one has learned from history dooms everyone to repeat it.

The web site Jihad Watch posted this story today about the Israeli government owned airline El Al modifying its fleet of passenger jets with anti-missile defenses. Great news for El Al passengers that someone had the foresight to deal with the possible threat from the thousands of missing surface-to-air missiles that were looted from the arsenal of Muammar Gaddafi, the late dictator of Libya. Maybe Israel has a longer history than we do so they have learned the hard way that if you ignore a threat you are doomed to suffer from it.
The costs of the Great Libyan Jihadist Garage Sale continue to spread. Just the other day, Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb affirmed that it had acquired part of Gaddafi's former arsenal.
"Israel rushes airliner defenses as Libya leaks SAMs," by Dan Williams for Reuters, November 11:
TEL AVIV (Reuters) - Israel has accelerated the installation of anti-missile defenses on its airliners, a security official said on Friday, seeing an enhanced risk of attack by militants using looted Libyan arms.
Jets flown by El Al and two other Israeli carriers are being equipped with a locally made system known as C-Music that uses a laser to "blind" heat-seeking missiles, the official said, giving a 2013 target for fitting most of the fleet.
As a stop-gap, Israel is adapting air force counter-measures for use aboard civilian planes, said the official, who declined to elaborate on the technologies involved, or to be identified.
"We have long been aware of the threat and were ahead of the rest of the world in preparing for it. Libya has meant government orders to step things up even further," the official said, citing intelligence assessments that chaos during the North African nation's uprising against Muammar Gaddafi allowed trafficking of Libyan shoulder-fired missiles to Palestinians and al Qaeda-linked groups in the Egyptian Sinai.
Too bad the U.S. Army didn't think to guard Saddam Hussein's arms depot in Baghdad after our successful invasion of Iraq in 2003. I wrote about that here on March 27, 2011. The arms depot belonging to Saddam in Baghdad had thousands of tons of 155mm artillery shells laying around unguarded after Saddam's Revolutionary Guard had vanished when the U.S. arrived. Within a matter of days, those unguarded shells had been carted off and converted into IED's that have killed and maimed thousands of our troops over the years.

Arming the terrorists is no different from giving aid and comfort to the enemy.

Treason is specifically defined in the United States Constitution, the only crime so defined. Article III Section 3 delineates treason as follows: "Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court."

Four decades ago, many people considered actress Jane Fonda's visit to North Vietnam, posing with soldiers and aiming an anti-aircraft gun in the direction of U.S. Navy aircraft was an act of treason for  "Giving aid and comfort" to the enemy. The leftist news media never pursued the story but nevertheless Fonda's movie career floundered due to the public rejection. Fonda was never charged with treason though many people, especially veterans, thought she should have been.

Jump forward to the initial days of the Bush invasion of Iraq and the capture of Baghdad. The great military arsenal of Saddam Hussein was pictured briefly in the news. Acres and acres of unguarded artillery shells stacked on the open ground. Within a few days almost all of that ordnance simply disappeared and for years our troops paid a terrible price for it. The web site FAS Strategic Security Blog  carried this story on its April 2009 blog.
Iraq’s Looted Arms Depots: What the GAO Didn’t Mention
In a recent report, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) attributes the looting of Iraq’s arms depots to the “ovewhelming size and number” of these depots and “prewar planning priorities and certain assumptions that proved to be invalid.” The report finds that the US military “did not adequately secure these [conventional munitions storage] sites during and immediately after the conclusion of major combat operations” and “did not plan for or set up a program to centrally manage and destroy enemy munitions until August 2003…” The munitions looted from Iraqi arsenals, claims the GAO, have been used extensively in the deadly improvised explosive device (IED) attacks that have become tragically commonplace in Iraq. But the IED threat is only part of the story. Iraq’s arsenals were also brimming with shoulder-fired, surface-to-air missiles, thousands of which disappeared during the widespread looting of the regime’s numerous arms depots in 2003.
Read the full story here:

Get the picture? Those looted artillery shells have become the substance of the Improvised Explosive Devices that have maimed and killed thousands of American soldiers. Yet not one U.S. military officer was ever court marshaled for failing to secure those weapons in the days following the fall of Baghdad. How quickly the war in Iraq could have ended had we managed to keep that arsenal out of the hands of the enemy insurgents will never be known.

Another web site The Warning Signs  has a more recent story on March 11, 2011 about the looting of Muammar Gaddafi's weapons depot in Libya and how many of these weapons will be at the disposal of al Qaeda terrorists. This is the more alarming paragraph in this lengthy piece. This story originally appeared on another web site Stratfor Global Intelligance.
Will Libya Again Become The Arsenal Of Terrorism?
By Scott Stewart
The arms depots in Libya have been looted by a number of different actors ranging in motivation from anti-Gadhafi freedom fighters to jihadists to outright thieves and thugs. While the weapons are now being used mostly to fight Col. Moammar Gadhafi’s remaining forces, they could later be diverted to other uses. Arms, ammunition and explosives looted from Libyan arms depots today will likely be serviceable for decades, and the thriving transnational black arms market will provide a mechanism for groups and individuals to sell looted weapons or those received from foreign governments. The bottom line is that weapons from Libya will be available on the black arms market for many years to come.
But the most alarming news about the looting of the weapons depots in Libya comes from Pamela Geller's web site Atlas Shrugs, today in a story she picked up from the Australian web site Among the looted weapons taken from Libya it was confirmed that a number of Russian made SAM 7 surface -to-air guided missles were also stolen.
'Al-Qaeda snatched missiles' in Libya

    * From correspondents in Paris
    * From: AFP
    * March 26, 2011 1:03PM

AL-QAEDA'S offshoot in North Africa has snatched surface-to-air missiles from an arsenal in Libya during the civil strife there, Chad's President says.

Idriss Deby Itno did not say how many surface-to-air missiles were stolen, but told the African weekly Jeune Afrique that he was "100 per cent sure" of his assertion.

"The Islamists of al-Qaeda took advantage of the pillaging of arsenals in the rebel zone to acquire arms, including surface-to-air missiles, which were then smuggled into their sanctuaries in Tenere," a desert region of the Sahara that stretches from northeast Niger to western Chad, Deby said in the interview.

"This is very serious. AQIM is becoming a genuine army, the best equipped in the region," he said.

His claim was echoed by officials in other countries in the region who said that they were worried that al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) might have acquired "heavy weapons", thanks to the insurrection.

"We have sure information. We are very worried for the sub-region," a Malian security source who did not want to be named said.

AQIM originated as an armed Islamist resistance movement to the secular Algerian government.

It now operates mainly in Algeria, Mauritania, Mali and Niger, where it has attacked military targets and taken civilian hostages, particularly Europeans, some of whom it has killed.

"We have the same information," about heavy weapons, including SAM 7 missiles, a military source from Niger said.

"It is very worrying. This overarming is a real danger for the whole zone," he added

"AQIM gets the weapons in two ways; people go and look for the arms in Libya to deliver them to AQIM in the Sahel, or AQIM elements go there themselves."

Elsewhere in the interview, Chad's president backed the assertion by his neighbour and erstwhile enemy Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi that the protests in Libya have been driven in part by al-Qaeda.

"There is a partial truth in what he says," Deby said.

"Up to what point? I don't know. But I am certain that AQIM took an active part in the uprising."

So Treason comes in many forms but it ends up as giving aid to the enemy. One-time Muslim Barack Hussein Obama can visit Egypt and provide encouragement to oppressed Muslims and then we watch the beginning of an uprising that quickly spreads across Northern Africa and the Middle East. Out of the chaos comes the change but the news media has blurred the lines of who is good and who is bad. Countries that were ruled by dictators now appear to going under the rule of the Islamic terrorist Muslim Brotherhood, the parent organization of al Qaeda. And these looted weapons will all be used by the Religion of Peace for humanitarian goals. You can bet on it.
Now comes a story from The Christian Science Monitor published two months ago about the Libyan weapons also being looted and carted off. The arsenal in Iraq provided the means to create IEDs (Improvised Explosive Devices) to attack American ground soldiers, but the thousands of hand-held SAM surface-to-air missiles from Libya will enable Islamic terrorists to attack in-flight aircraft, both military and civilian - anywhere and everywhere.

The deadly dilemma of Libya's missing weapons

Human Rights Watch discovered several weapons-storage sites in Libya where surface-to-air missiles are missing, raising concerns that the weapons could arm an Iraq-style insurgency.

Tripoli, Libya

As Libya’s National Transitional Council (NTC) hunt for and collect the weapons that fueled Muammar Qaddafi's war machine, they are quickly learning that some choice pieces of his vast stockpile of mines, mortars, and explosives are missing.

At newly discovered weapons-storage sites, thousands of shoulder-held surface-to-air missiles (SAMs) are unaccounted for. At one unguarded facility, empty packing crates and documents reveal that 482 sophisticated Russian SA-24 missiles were shipped to Libya in 2004, and now are gone. With a range of 11,000 feet, the SA-24 is Moscow’s modern version of the American “stinger,” which in the 1980s helped the US-backed Afghan mujahideen turn their war against the Soviet Union.
George Santayana, who, in his Reason in Common Sense, The Life of Reason, Vol.1, wrote "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it." He was right and there is no compromise.
