Gun Camera Footage from Syria Airstrikes

The Pentagon released gun camera footage from successful attacks on ISIS and Khorasan targets inside of Syria.

Airstrikes Begin in Syria

The first wave of United States attacks against ISIS and The Khorasan Group in Syria began early Tuesday morning. The airstrikes hit 14 ISIS and Khorasan targets in Syria including command and control centers, supply caches and training facilities. Aircraft from five Arab nations reportedly assisted with the strikes, but no European allies were involved. The air… Read More »

President Obama’s Broad Coalition of One

With great fanfare and a nationwide, prime time presidential address to the American people, President Obama announced the formation of a “broad coalition” that would wage war together to destroy the Islamic State also known as ISIS or ISIL.

Feeling the Pain of the Falling Man of September 11th

This article was originally published in a number of publications on September 11, 2002. With a slight edit to reflect our current circumstances, I present it to you as a tribute to the souls lost on September 11, 2001. Everyone remembers the horrifying images of September 11, 2001.

My 9-11 Tribute to New York Firefighter Michael D. D’Auria

The Questions Aren’t Ridiculous to Ask Anymore

Not too long ago if you supposed that President Obama was sympathetic to his Islamic experience as a child, inside the beltway Republicans would cringe and Progressives would howl. Non-engaged and no- and low-information voters would immediately call you a conspiracy theorist, an Obama-hating racist and other assorted kneejerk labels.

Stupid Is As Stupid Does

Stunningly (okay, maybe I am not as stunned as I could be), the Obama Administration’s State Department has succeeded in achieving the same stunted intellect toward the threats made by violent Islamists as was held by our government in the days before September 11, 2001. The critical mass moment came in the announcement that State… Read More »
