The Al Qaeda Threat Becomes More Clear (Sort of)

August 6, 2013

We apparently “know” (and I use that word loosely) a little bit more about the terror threat bugging out the US from Morocco to Bangladesh:  intercepts between Zawahiri and his AQAP (al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula) counterpart in Yemen indicate that the bomber who designed the underwear bomb as well as the body implant [...]

Major al Qaeda Terror Plot Allegedly Upon Us

August 4, 2013

Happy 52nd birthday, Mr. President.  Unfortunately, there’s an apparently “strategically significant” terror plot which reports indicate is pretty much ready to go!  Twenty-two embassies and consulates were closed down in anticipation of this attack, so I’m glad the President could get in a quick game of golf yesterday in the midst of all this. One [...]

Oslo Terror Suspect Could Face Only 21 Years in Prison!

July 24, 2011

The two recent terror attacks in Oslo, Norway, saw both a terror bombing and random shooting spree that has thus far taken the lives of 93 people.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to the survivors, families of the fallen, and the Norwegian people. Authorities have caught a man, Anders Behring Breivik, who’s taken responsibility [...]

A Newer, Leaner Terror Alert System

April 20, 2011

Homeland Security head, Janet Napolitano, was at Grand Central Station today to unveil a new terror alert system to replace the old color-coded one.  It should be up and running by the end of the week. Uh oh!  But, I thought “terror” ended when Bush left office!  Oh well (shrug). I didn’t really warm to [...]

Irony in Moving Gitmo Prisoners to Illinois

January 7, 2010

It is always fun when something ironic happens to prove how stupid liberal policies are.  Take for example the snowstorms and record cold temperatures that seem to follow the Global Warming nuts around, culminating in a freak-blizzard in Copenhagen during the world climate summit.  Well, the a similar irony (this one far more dangerous) occured [...]

KSM in Federal Court — We’re Officially Pre-9/11 Again

November 13, 2009

The Obama Nation continues to live up to its pitiful reputation as Attorney General Eric Holder announced in perfect Friday “document-dump” fashion that five terrorists, including 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed will be tried in federal court in New York! This about as pre-9/11 as one can possibly get.  This is what the 9/11 Commission [...]

I Miss Bush

November 12, 2009

Today, former President George W. Bush gave a speech at Southern Methodist University, the future home of his Presidential Library and think-tank.  Here’s the clip from Fox News today covering the speech: Warning of the temptation to believe government is the solution to our problems, hearing Dubya’s voice with all the occasionally misspoken words, thinking [...]

Be On the Lookout for Suspicious Nondescript Men in Subway Stations

September 25, 2009

We here at AOR are usually pretty tough on the mainstream media, but this is an instance where we have to give credit where credit is due.  The CBS affiliate in Philadelphia has provided a valuable service by alerting the public to the fact that Philadelphia police are on the lookout for a group of [...]

Terror in Jakarta Targets Foreigners

July 17, 2009

Obama Administration Newspeak:  Unfortunately our overseas contingency operations failed to stop a man-caused disaster which took the life of at least 18 non-Americans in Jakarta, Indonesia, at the JW Marriott and Ritz-Carlton Hotels today.  No Americans were killed, but at least five were wounded. Regular-Person Translation:  Islamic terrorists set off bombs at two hotels in Jakarta, [...]

Dick Cheney has come out swinging against Obama’s selective release of memos detailing the interrogation techniques the CIA used against terrorists during the Bush administration.  Cheney, speaking to Sean Hannity in an interview to be aired later tonight, called for a release of all the memos showing the effectiveness of the techniques and the intelligence [...]

The Pirates Call Our Bluff

April 11, 2009

To paraphrase Rush from yesterday, America’s reaction to the taking of Captain Richard Phillips Wednesday by Somali pirates is the foreign policy equivalent of voting “Present.” Now, due to the US waffling and inaction the four Somali pirates on a powerless lifeboat are demanding $2 million for Phillips while a second ship has been hijacked by other pirates.  [...]

An Enemy Combatant by Any Other Name

March 13, 2009

President Obama is officially abandoning the use of the term “enemy combatant” to describe enemy combatants in the War on Terror.  The announcement will make liberals who read nothing but headlines ecstatic.  They view the enemy combatant designation as nothing more than President Bush’s pretext to deny foreign terrorists with whom we are at war [...]

Giving Terrorists Constitutional Rights

February 27, 2009

The Obama Administration has moved Al Qaeda operative Ali Saleh Kahlah al-Marri from being an enemy combatant to being indicted in U.S. Criminal Court.  Al-Marri was an Al Qaeda sleeper agent based in the U.S., and provided the terrorist organization with material support.  He arrived in the U.S. shortly before 9/11 and was arrested in [...]

An agreement was reached in committee yesterday which spells out a timetable for US withdrawal from Iraq.  The draft will be voted on tomorrow in a special session of the Iraqi Parliament.  A new Status of Forces Agreement is necessary since our UN mandate to be in Iraq expires by the end of the year (some [...]

Reign of Terror Against Mormons in California

November 15, 2008

The Mormons are being unfairly targeted by the hate-filled left for their advocacy of California Proposition-8, which had the effect of reversing a CA activist-court ruling banning gay marriage.  The protesters are targeting Mormons, sending white powder to a Mormon church, protesting Mormon businesses, and focusing on them at their rallies: Now, even the New [...]

Al Qaeda, Iraq, and Google 2001

October 2, 2008

While looking at Sal’s Google 2001 “timesuck”, I discovered something that isn’t a timesuck at all. After Googling “Osama Bin Laden Iraq” on Google’s 2001 site and index, I found this article from 2000 in the Guardian about the connections between Al Qaeda and Iraq on the USS Cole bombing. So let me get this [...]

Terror in Turkey Kills Six

July 9, 2008

The US Consulate in Istanbul, Turkey, was attacked today by four men in what the American and Turkish authorities are calling an act of terrorism.  Three of the attackers were killed, but not before taking out three policemen, one point blank to the head.  The fourth attacker unfortunately got away in a speeding car, as [...]

Osama Has Bin Relevant, Not So Much Anymore

March 19, 2008

How the mighty have fallen. In 2001, Osama Bin Laden actively and openly led a sophisticated international terrorist network that was disciplined, organized, well-financed, supported by evil regimes, and successful in carrying out terrorist attacks on American soil. After President Bush responded to the September 11 attack with a multi-pronged strategy including two wars, international [...]

Columbia v. Chavez

March 3, 2008

According to the de facto Venezuelan socialist dictator Hugo Chavez, Colombia will not be permitted to “become the Israel of Latin America.”  I guess Hugo’s been hanging with Ahmadinejad a little too much! How did this all start?  Colombia received some intelligence that a FARC terrorist leader Raul Reyes was at a FARC base less than [...]

Debating the demise of the Republican Party

January 25, 2008

There has been much talk of the demise of the GOP in recent weeks.  Rush Limbaugh has been making the case that if Huckabee or McCain are nominated, it will destroy the GOP.  In an article today, Peggy Noonan states that the GOP is already in shambles, and it is because of George W. Bush.  [...]

Kabul, Baghdad, Paris

November 5, 2005

I think what most of the MSM has missed, and what no one has really said yet, is that the situation in Paris is another front in the War on Terror. It is a rejection of the Islamic immigrants in France to the secularist, socialist government of France. People running through the streets have been [...]
