“Never did I imagine that the Americans would elect a president who would give open support to the Muslim Brotherhood, or that a Secretary of State would take as one of her closest advisers a woman whose family and background are connected closely to the highest levels of the Muslim Brotherhood organization,” Howard Rotberg, on [...]
“On December 7, 1941, the U.S. naval base at Pearl Harbor was attacked. Three years, eight months, and eight days later, the Japanese surrendered. These days, America’s military moves at a more leisurely pace. On November 5, 2009, another U.S. base, Fort Hood, was attacked — by one man standing on a table, screaming “Allahu [...]
Manpads, a silly acronym for shoulder-fired anti-aircraft missiles. You know, the kind developed to shoot down military helicopters, which could also be used, if the user was driven by some sort of religious fanaticism, to shoot down airliners. And 400 of them still on the loose is the reason for all the coverup about Benghazi, [...]
Bad enough that the Pentagon echoed the White House in calling the Jihadi massacre of 13 unarmed soldiers (and wounding of 32 more) at Fort Hood in 2009 “workplace violence,” but now there seems to be no valid reason to be trying the killer Muslim major. “The evidence will clearly show that I am the [...]
My career Air Force father was still flying tail-draggers like this World War II C-45H every other weekend in 1958 to earn his flight pay, according to his official pilot logs which I inherited.
Fox News, which I check at least once every day as the most reliable and objective of the traditional news gatherers, lured me in the other day to paying attention to Prince William and Princess Kate and their baby boy.

Oh, good, another American war by presidential whim, another war we can’t possibly win, this time backing our own enemies. The only possible explanation for this new catastrophe-in-the-making is that Wormtongue is wagging the dog, as the old movie title went, trying to divert attention from the scandals engulfing his administration. UPDATE: It will be [...]
Barry’s recent reactions to the multiple scandals of his administration are revealing the real man behind the passive “black” mask: “It turns out that they have nothing to do with him: he has no idea what is going on in the Treasury Department, the Department of Justice, the State Department, the IRS, or, apparently, anywhere [...]
These seven men of 60th Company, OC 504-68, were killed in Viet Nam. We graduates of that 1968 class at Infantry Officers Candidate School, Fort Benning, Georgia, commemorate the seven each Memorial Day. One graduate: 1LT Jacob Lee Kinser, a Huey helicopter pilot. Two Tactical Officers: CPT Reese Michael Patrick and 1LT Daniel Lynn Neiswender, [...]
