Fox News has learned from sources who were on the ground in Benghazi that an urgent request from the CIA annex for military back-up during the attack on the U.S. consulate and subsequent attack several hours later on the annex itself was denied by the CIA chain of command — who also told the CIA operators twice to “stand down” rather than help the ambassador’s team when shots were heard at approximately 9:40 p.m. in Benghazi on Sept. 11.
Former Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods was part of a small team who was at the CIA annex about a mile from the U.S. consulate where Ambassador Chris Stevens and his team came under attack. When he and others heard the shots fired, they informed their higher-ups at the annex to tell them what they were hearing and requested permission to go to the consulate and help out. They were told to “stand down,” according to sources familiar with the exchange. Soon after, they were again told to “stand down.”
Woods and at least two others ignored those orders and made their way to the consulate which at that point was on fire. Shots were exchanged. The rescue team from the CIA annex evacuated those who remained at the consulate and Sean Smith, who had been killed in the initial attack. They could not find the ambassador and returned to the CIA annex at about midnight.
At that point, they called again for military support and help because they were taking fire at the CIA safe house, or annex. The request was denied. There were no communications problems at the annex, according those present at the compound. The team was in constant radio contact with their headquarters. In fact, at least one member of the team was on the roof of the annex manning a heavy machine gun when mortars were fired at the CIA compound. The security officer had a laser on the target that was firing and repeatedly requested back-up support from a Spectre gunship, which is commonly used by U.S. Special Operations forces to provide support to Special Operations teams on the ground involved in intense firefights. The fighting at the CIA annex went on for more than four hours — enough time for any planes based in Sigonella Air base, just 480 miles away, to arrive. Fox News has also learned that two separate Tier One Special operations forces were told to wait, among them Delta Force operators.
Watch “Special Report Investigates: Benghazi — New Revelations” on Fox News at 1 p.m. ET on Saturday, 3 p.m. on Sunday and 10 p.m. on Sunday.
A Special Operations team, or CIF which stands for Commanders in Extremis Force, operating in Central Europe had been moved to Sigonella, Italy, but they were never told to deploy. In fact, a Pentagon official says there were never any requests to deploy assets from outside the country. A second force that specializes in counterterrorism rescues was on hand at Sigonella, according to senior military and intelligence sources. According to those sources, they could have flown to Benghazi in less than two hours. They were the same distance to Benghazi as those that were sent from Tripoli. Spectre gunships are commonly used by the Special Operations community to provide close air support.
According to sources on the ground during the attack, the special operator on the roof of the CIA annex had visual contact and a laser pointing at the Libyan mortar team that was targeting the CIA annex. The operators were calling in coordinates of where the Libyan forces were firing from.
Defense Secretary Leon Panetta told reporters at the Pentagon on Thursday that there was not a clear enough picture of what was occurring on the ground in Benghazi to send help.
“There’s a lot of Monday morning quarterbacking going on here,” Panetta said Thursday. “But the basic principle here … is that you don’t deploy forces into harm’s way without knowing what’s going on.”
U.S. officials argue that there was a period of several hours when the fighting stopped before the mortars were fired at the annex, leading officials to believe the attack was over.
Fox News has learned that there were two military surveillance drones redirected to Benghazi shortly after the attack on the consulate began. They were already in the vicinity. The second surveillance craft was sent to relieve the first drone, perhaps due to fuel issues. Both were capable of sending real time visuals back to U.S. officials in Washington, D.C. Any U.S. official or agency with the proper clearance, including the White House Situation Room, State Department, CIA, Pentagon and others, could call up that video in real time on their computers.
Tyrone Woods was later joined at the scene by fellow former Navy SEAL Glen Doherty, who was sent in from Tripoli as part of a Global Response Staff or GRS that provides security to CIA case officers and provides countersurveillance and surveillance protection. They were killed by a mortar shell at 4 a.m. Libyan time, nearly seven hours after the attack on the consulate began — a window that represented more than enough time for the U.S. military to send back-up from nearby bases in Europe, according to sources familiar with Special Operations. Four mortars were fired at the annex. The first one struck outside the annex. Three more hit the annex.
A motorcade of dozens of Libyan vehicles, some mounted with 50 caliber machine guns, belonging to the February 17th Brigades, a Libyan militia which is friendly to the U.S., finally showed up at the CIA annex at approximately 3 a.m. An American Quick Reaction Force sent from Tripoli had arrived at the Benghazi airport at 2 a.m. (four hours after the initial attack on the consulate) and was delayed for 45 minutes at the airport because they could not at first get transportation, allegedly due to confusion among Libyan militias who were supposed to escort them to the annex, according to Benghazi sources.
The American special operators, Woods, Doherty and at least two others were part of the Global Response Staff, a CIA element, based at the CIA annex and were protecting CIA operators who were part of a mission to track and repurchase arms in Benghazi that had proliferated in the wake of Muammar Qaddafi’s fall. Part of their mission was to find the more than 20,000 missing MANPADS, or shoulder-held missiles capable of bringing down a commercial aircraft. According to a source on the ground at the time of the attack, the team inside the CIA annex had captured three Libyan attackers and was forced to hand them over to the Libyans. U.S. officials do not know what happened to those three attackers and whether they were released by the Libyan forces.
Fox News has also learned that Stevens was in Benghazi that day to be present at the opening of an English-language school being started by the Libyan farmer who helped save an American pilot who had been shot down by pro-Qaddafi forces during the initial war to overthrow the regime. That farmer saved the life of the American pilot and the ambassador wanted to be present to launch the Libyan rescuer’s new school.
For the entire Presidential Candidacy of Barack Obama the Mainstream Media has hidden the details of his background,his beliefs and his radical associations with America hating communist and even convicted terrorists.They know that any of his know associations and anti-colonialist convictions would instantly derail Obama’s chance of re-election.

A Democrat controlled Congress passed ObamaCare against the will of the American people. Yet Congressmen and their staff lobbied the Obama Administration for a subsidy to protect themselves from ObamaCare’s astronomical costs. Regular Americans like you are left with the bill.
If you have to live under ObamaCare, so should the people who passed it!
Former Hawaii elections clerk Tim Adams has now signed an affidavit swearing he was told by his supervisors in Hawaii that no long-form, hospital-generated birth certificate existed for Barack Obama Jr. in Hawaii and that neither Queens Medical Center nor Kapi’olani Medical Center in Honolulu had any record of Obama having been born in their medical facilities.
Adams was employed at the City and County of Honolulu Elections Division from May 2008 through September 2008.
His position was senior elections clerk, overseeing a group of 50 to 60 employees responsible for verifying the identity of voters at the Absentee Ballot Office. It was in this capacity that Adams became aware of the search for Obama’s birth-certificate records.
“During the course of my employment,” Adams swears in the affidavit (viewable in full as part 1 and part 2), “I became aware that many requests were being made to the City and County of Honolulu Elections Division, the Hawaii Office of Elections, and the Hawaii Department of Health from around the country to obtain a copy of then-Senator Barack Obama’s long-form, hospital-generated birth certificate.”
As he inquired about the birth certificate, he says, his supervisors told him that the records were not on file at the Hawaii Department of Health.
“Senior officers in the City and County of Honolulu Elections Division told me on multiple occasions that no Hawaii long-form, hospital-generated birth certificate existed for Senator Obama in the Hawaii Department of Health,” Adams’ affidavit reads, “and there was no record that any such document had ever been on file in the Hawaii Department of Health or any other branch or department of the Hawaii government.”
The Hawaii government was engaged in a cover-up designed to tell the American public through the Obama-supporting mainstream media that Obama was born in Hawaii, even though no long-form, hospital-generated birth certificate for Obama could be found on record in the Hawaii Department of Health.
In the affidavit Adams swears, “During the course of my employment, I came to understand that for political reasons, various officials in the government of Hawaii, including then-Governor Linda Lingle and various officials of the Hawaii Department of Health, including Dr. Chiyome Fukino, the director of the Hawaii Department of Health, were making representations that Senator Obama was born in Hawaii, even though no government official in Hawaii could find a long-form birth certificate for Senator Obama that had been issued by a Hawaii hospital at the time of his birth.”
Adams further swears his supervisors told him to quit asking about Obama’s birth records.
“During the course of my employment,” Adams states in the affidavit, “I was told by senior officers in the City and County of Honolulu Elections Division to stop inquiring about Senator Obama’s Hawaii birth records, even though it was common knowledge among my fellow employees that no Hawaii long-form, hospital-generated birth certificate existed for Senator Obama.”
“I can go get my long-form, hospital-generated birth certificate,” Adams said. “And so I don’t understand, this whole controversy should have been settled three or four years ago in about five minutes.”
Nor does Adams feel the short-form Certification of Live Birth is authoritative documentation proving that Obama was born in Hawaii.
“My basic assumption is that he wasn’t born there,” Adams said. “Certifications of Live Birth were given to people who were born at home, or to people who were born overseas and whose parents brought them back to the islands. If his parents were U.S. citizens, or if one parent was a U.S. citizen, as was the case with Obama, the family would apply for a Hawaiian birth certificate when the parents came back from overseas. That’s normally how you would have gotten on [a Certification of Live Birth] in the 1960s.”
Obama’s grandparents, Stanley and Madelyn Dunham, could have made an in-person request at the Hawaii Department of Health for a registration of a Hawaii birth, even if the infant Barack Obama Jr. had been foreign-born.
But the state registration of birth in 1961 theoretically could prove only that the grandparents had registered Obama’s birth, even if Obama was not born in Hawaii.
Similarly, the newspaper announcements of baby Obama’s birth do not prove he was born in Hawaii, since the newspaper announcements could have been triggered by the grandparents appearing in-person to register baby Obama as a Hawaiian birth, even if the baby was born elsewhere.
The address reported in the birth announcements published in the Hawaii newspapers at the time, 6085 Kalanianaole Highway, was the address where the grandparents lived.
Barack Obama Sr. maintained his own separate apartment in Honolulu at an 11th Avenue address, even after he was supposedly married to Ann Dunham, Barack Obama’s mother,.
Mohammad Youssuf Abdulazeez was carrying 30-round magazines when he opened fire, according to a source briefed by law enforcement. Abdulazeez kept police at bay for some time with the amount of ammunition he had, according to the source.
The shooting suspect was armed with an AK-47 style weapon at the time of the attack according to two law enforcement officials briefed on the investigation.
Who was the gunman accused of killing four Marines in a shooting rampage Thursday at two military centers in Chattanooga, Tennessee, and why did he open fire?
Suspected shooter Mohammad Youssuf Abdulazeez, 24, is dead, the FBI said. But — publicly, at least — investigators haven’t said much more about him.
Witnesses saw Abdulazeez spray a hail of bullets at the glass doors of a military recruiting center in a strip mall. Then the gunman, who according to a law enforcement official was driving in a rented silver Ford Mustang convertible, moved on to his next target more than seven miles away: a Naval reserve center. There, he rammed into a gate at some point during his shooting rampage and was eventually killed by police, a U.S. official said.
Now, with the FBI in the lead, a terrorism task force is investigating, a law enforcement source said.
Authorities “have not determined whether it was an act of terrorism or whether it was a criminal act,” Ed Reinhold, FBI special agent in charge, told reporters. “We are looking at every possible avenue, whether it was terrorism — whether it was domestic, international — or whether it was a simple, criminal act.”
A key detail will help them make that determination: finding out the suspect’s motive.
In the neighborhood where Abdulazeez is believed to have lived, police cars and an ambulance were on the streets. Residents were blocked from reaching their homes. A woman was escorted in handcuffs from the area, but it was unclear whether she was connected to the alleged gunman.
“We will treat this as a terrorism investigation until it can be determined that it is not,” Reinhold said. U.S. Attorney Bill Killian earlier told reporters that authorities were treating the shooting as an “act of domestic terrorism.”
Authorities have released few details about the alleged gunman, but some details have begun to emerge about his past.
Abdulazeez was arrested in April for allegedly driving under the influence. He had been scheduled to appear in court later this month.
Abdulazeez was not in any U.S. databases of suspected terrorists, a U.S. official said. He was born in Kuwait and had Jordanian citizenship, two law enforcement officials said. He was a naturalized U.S. citizen, one official said.
And he may have traveled back to the Middle East in recent years.
The shootings unfolded at two sites over 30 minutes, Reinhold said.
The suspected gunman started spraying bullets at the glass doors of a strip mall military recruiting center around 10:45 a.m. ET, witnesses said. From there, he headed to another location more than seven miles away, an operational support center operated by the U.S. Navy. That’s where the four victims and the gunman were killed, Reinhold said.
At least three people were injured: a police officer, a Marine Corps recruiter and a sailor.
The police officer, who was injured when he was shot in the ankle, was treated at the hospital, Chattanooga Mayor Andy Berke said. Officer Dennis Pedigo was one of the first responders on the scene, a law enforcement source close to the investigation said.
The recruiter, who was wounded in the leg, was treated and released from the hospital, the U.S. Marines said.
A female sailor who was shot is in surgery and in “pretty serious condition,” a Pentagon official told CNN’s Barbara Starr.
The shooting left the city reeling and raised questions about the security at the military centers.
“Today was a nightmare for the city of Chattanooga. … We had someone viciously attack, at two different locations, people who proudly serve our country,” Berke said.
Authorities haven’t released details yet about where at the centers the victims were shot or how the gunman gained access.
U.S. President Barack Obama said the FBI director had briefed him on the shootings.
Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said authorities were stepping up security at “certain federal facilities, out of an abundance of caution” after the shootings.
April Grimmett said she was working at a hair salon near the recruiting center when she looked out a window and saw a man ducking in between cars.
“Shortly after that, we heard the (shots). It was very loud and very fast,” she said.
A photo that she took shows glass doors damaged by the gunfire.
“I could not believe how many bullet holes were in that door. It was insane,” she said.
Gina Mule, a server at a restaurant, said she saw a man who’d been in a silver convertible Mustang, firing a “high-powered rifle” at the recruiting offices at about 10:50 a.m.
First, she heard “Pow, pow, pow!” Then, she went to a window and saw the man firing.
“He never got out of the car,” she said. “He had a big, huge, high-powered rifle, and he was unloading shots right into the recruiters.”
America has invested trillions of dollars in Iraq and Afghanistan trying to keep in place so-called moderate Islamic governments in the hope of keeping fundamentalist Islamists out of power. Yet, Iran, “the mother of all fundamentalist Islamic governments,” as Baghdad Bob would have phrased it, remains free from intervention. It was Iran’s militant, Islamic Revolution and the subsequent government policy enshrined in its constitution to spread Islam via violence, terrorism, assassination, and deception that helped inspire fundamentalist Islam’s worldwide resurgence. Due to the Iranian government’s admitted policy of using terrorism to advance Islam and to speed up the return of the Mahdi so as to bring about the final confrontation between Muslims and non-Muslims, Americans have been slaughtered in places like Lebanon, Iraq, and repeatedly has called for the destruction of the United States and Israel. Mysteriously, however, the West and America have, at least until now, only used limited attempts at sanctions to try and reign in Iran’s theocratic government despite repeated acts of war by Iran.
The West and America must see Iran as an enemy that needs to be contained with measures beyond economic sanctions if we hope to avert future catastrophic acts of terrorism by Iran. Given Iran’s development of nuclear weapons, it was the Islamic regime of Iran that needed to be eliminated ahead of the Taliban and Saddam Hussein. Iran is certainly one of the three most dangerous countries on Earth, the other two being Pakistan and North Korea. Iran is developing nuclear weapons and if it succeeds as it surely will absent military intervention, it is likely to use those nuclear weapons to further clearly and often stated goals: the Iranian government’s desire to speed the arrival of the Mahdi, make a new world order wherein the United States is eliminated as a world power, and its religiously inspired perceived obligation to annihilate the state of Israel. Yet, the West and multiple American administrations have left Iran largely free to pursue its terror activities worldwide, including many lethal attacks on American interests, soldiers, and citizens despite the fact that Iran has never concealed its intention to destroy America and Israel as the following quotes of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad reveal:
- “[The] American empire in the world is reaching the end of its road, and its next rulers must limit their interference to their own borders.”
- “…the United States and the Zionist regime of Israel will soon come to the end of their lives.”
- “The Iranian nation will continue in its nuclear path powerfully and will celebrate a nuclear victory soon.”
- ” Israel is destined for destruction and will soon disappear.”
- “Have no doubt. Allah willing, Islam will conquer what? It will conquer all the mountain tops of the world.”
These quotes are not a misrepresentation of the Iranian leader’s intentions nor are they taken out of context. Many other statements of Iranian leaders reveal a clear intention to destroy what the Mullahs refer to as the Great Satan (United States) and Little Satan (Israel). It follows that if Iran acquires nuclear weapons it is likely to use them to achieve its stated goals. Statements about celebrating “a nuclear victory soon” need to be taken more seriously. The doctrine of mutually assured destruction is no deterrent to Iran’s Mullahs and President who have a messianic, end of the World mindset. Iran’s Mullahs and President do not care what will happen to the Iranian people. As you may recall, during the Iran/Iraq war, young men and even children were used as human mine sweepers in the belief that dying in Jihad was better than living as it meant instant Paradise.
Nevertheless, the United States and her allies have done far too little to stop the Iranian quest for acquiring nuclear weapons. It should be apparent at this point that the only way to stop the program is to oust the Islamist regime. Yet, when a true, freedom seeking uprising broke out in Iran, President Obama completely ignored the Iranian peoples’ pleas for help and wasted a perfect opportunity to oust the dangerous Mullahs. President Obama’s inexplicable actions stand in sharp contrast to his support of alleged freedom-seeking people when they took to the streets against America-friendly authoritarian rulers in Egypt, Tunisia, Morocco, and Yemen. The Obama administration’s approach toward the unfriendly regimes of Libya and Syria, despite being no serious threat to America, was much more involved. It should have been clear to President Obama and his advisers that the possibility of better regimes coming to power in Egypt, Tunisia, Morocco, Yemen, Libya and Syria was remote at best. Yet, in Iran it was clearly the opposite situation. The probability of a worse regime coming to power in Iran was highly improbable. In fact, it is hard to imagine a worse regime than one that admits it is building nuclear weapons so that it can “celebrate a nuclear victory soon” as President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has admitted.
Observing the outcomes of the rather misguided foreign policies of President Obama, including the outright betrayal of long-term allies such as Mubarek, one cannot help but wonder what the real underlying goals of the Obama Administration are. Had he supported the anti-government revolution in Iran, it would have certainly brought a more liberal, democratic and Western-friendly government to power. At a minimum, a new Iranian regime would not have posed nearly as much of a threat to the region, Israel and America as is the current regime. And where President Obama supported revolutions in Egypt, Morocco, Tunisia and Yemen to depose relatively friendly regimes, it brought in Islamist Muslim Brotherhood governments to power that will eventually be as dangerous to non-Islamic countries as is the current Iranian Islamist regime.
So bizarre and inexplicable is the state of affair as it stands that one is left to wonder whether America and its allies want to let Iranian Islamists achieve their stated goals. Why else would the West and American efforts in the Middle East be so focused on leaving our most mortal enemy untouched while working actively to replace our friendly allies with new Islamist regimes that also want our destruction just as the Iranian regime hopes to achieve? If you have a rationale answer i would love to hear it.
You may believe, in error, that Iran could never significantly harm America, but you could not be more wrong. President Ahmadinejad repeated his often stated intention of destroying Israel and America while standing in New York just a few days ago. Imagine how the Iranian regime will behave when it finally succeeds in acquiring nuclear weapons. Iran will certainly look for every opportunity to use them to achieve the above-referenced stated goals. Iran’s hatred of and desire to destroy the Jewish state is so intense it is palpable. A nuclear attack on Israel would not only annihilate the Jewish state and most of its people, it will also create global chaos, inflicting irreparable damage to America, the West, and to the World at large.
Equally serious would be the likely possibility of Iran arming its terrorist proxies with nuclear weapons. The United States is heavily dependent on its electrical grid and high technology economy with computers and electronics running nearly everything. The Iranian regime or its terrorist proxies can wipe out this electrical and electronic infrastructure via the use of one or two well-placed EMP weapon strikes. The United States would instantly be thrust back into the eighteenth century, but without the widespread dispersion of eighteen century technology needed for survival. All Iran or one of its proxies would have to do is strap a nuclear weapon to a missile, fire it from near the American coast on a ship or barge high into the atmosphere above America to explode and utter devastation would ensue. The blast would kill no one nor would the radiation be a problem, but it would be a death sentence for most Americans.
This scenario is not secret. It is a very well-known and feared scenario among numerous experts, high government officials, and military leaders. Yet Iran is left to continue developing the capability for carrying out such an attack for which they have repeatedly expressed their intention. Leaving the Iranians to develop nuclear weapons is the height of folly for Americans and the rest of the World and all humanity will pay dearly as any serious, adverse impact on the U.S. economy will have severe consequences for the global economy. Already mired in difficult economic turmoil and food shortages, billions would face starvation.
America and the non-Muslim world’s complete lack of understanding of the true nature of Islam that inspires Islamist regimes like that of Iran is undoubtedly the main factor in the global community’s failure to recognize the kind of danger nuclear-armed Iran poses to humanity. A fundamentalist government like Iran will always detest the United States and cannot be meaningfully negotiated or reasoned with. Religiously inspired hatred of non-Muslims is hard-wired into Islamic doctrines as revealed in the Hadiths and Qur’an.
For example, Muhammad said: “I have been ordered to fight with the people till they say, None has the right to be worshiped but Allah, and whoever says, None has the right to be worshiped but Allah, his life and property will be saved by me.” (Al Bukhari Vol. 4:196) “Allah made the Jews leave their homes by terrorizing them so that you killed some and made many captives. And He made you inherit their lands, their homes, and their wealth…” (Qur’an 33:26) Clearly, Muhammad viewed capturing non-Muslim’s land and property as fair game and his conduct reveals that he practiced what he preached. To such religiously sanctioned murder and robbery of non-Muslims, the Qur’an refers to non-Muslims in numerous derogatory ways and clearly teaches that non-Muslims are fair game for almost every type of indignity and violence.
For example, the Qur’an states that non-Muslims are: not to be taken as a friend (3:28), to be confused (6:25), to be terrorized: “I will instill terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers: smite ye above their necks and smite all their finger-tips off them” (8:12), to be made war on (9:5 & 29), to be considered unclean, evil and a helper of evil against God (9:28, 23:97 & 25:55), to be punished (25:77), humiliated (37:18), hated (40:35), beheaded (47:4), laughed at (83:34), and assumed to be plotting against Muslims (86:15).
Moreover, the earliest biography of Muhammad by Ibn Ishaq flatly quotes Muhammad as stating: “Muhammad is the apostle of Allah! Those with him are violent against Unbelievers but merciful to one another…” The Qur’an is in accord: “Muhammad is the apostle of God; and those who are with him are strong against Unbelievers, (but) compassionate amongst each other…” (Qur’an 48:29)
With respect to the verses regarding Jihad, note that Jihad is an Arabic word which translates to English as “struggle”. Jihad can mean striving to be a better Muslim (known as the greater Jihad). The most well-known meaning, however, is fighting for Allah (also known as the lesser Jihad). In this sense, Jihad is the struggle for spreading Islam using all means available to Muslims, including force of arms and deception (Islamic doctrine known as Al Takeyya). The lesser Jihad is what has become to be known as “Holy War.” Some commentators such as myself, only somewhat in jest, see the greater Jihad as trying to find inner peace after engaging in violent Jihad.
Concerning Jihad, the Qur’an guarantees Paradise to those who fight for Allah (4:74). The Qur’an promises instant Paradise for those, who die fighting to advance Islam (9:111 and 47:5-6). Dying for Allah is presented as preferable to living: “And if ye are slain, or die, in the way of God, forgiveness and mercy from God are far better than all they could amass” (3:157).
Martyrs are promised a secure, sensual (sensual is expanded to erotic in the Hadiths) and luxurious life in paradise with beautiful women. (44:51-56; 52:17-29) For example, chapter 44, verse 54 promises: “So; and We shall join them to Companions with beautiful, big, and lustrous eyes.” Some disrupted homicide/suicide bombers have freely admitted that it was the Quranic and Hadith promises of virgins in paradise that motivated them.
In the Hadith, Mohammed also urges Muslims to practice Jihad. (See, Bukhari 4:196, 5:716, 1:35, 1:25)
It is the foregoing Quranic verses and others, as well as numerous Hadith based on Muhammad’s life and words, deemed by Muslims as their complete code of life and morality, that shape the Islamic and Iranian worldview that divides humanity into two opposing spheres: Dar al-Islam, or House of Islam, where Islam rules; the rest is the Dar al-Harb or House of War against non-Muslims. This worldview, which is embraced by Islamist regimes like Iran, mandates that Jihad will continue between the competing camps until the supremacy of Islam is thoroughly established everywhere (see verses 2:193, 8:39 etc.). In Islamic theology, Jihad is one of the instruments for the eventual elimination of the Dar al-Harb or non-Islamic World.
A true understanding of Islamic doctrine establishes why it is impossible to have good relations with a fundamentalist Islamic state. Where one might see a “frenemy” relationship between a fundamentalist Islamic country like the current Muslim Brotherhood ruled Egypt and non-Muslim countries like the U.S., it is simply rooted on temporary mutual interests such as the desire for American aid or desire to avoid American retribution. A cordial relationship of some kind with an Islamic country is only possible when the country is ruled by cultural Muslim leaders who oppose or seek to minimize the roles of Islamic doctrines in guiding policies and laws of that country. Yet again, this relationship is also temporary as they may be ousted by Islamists at any time. As you will soon see, Jordan is next on the Islamist hit list.
In addition to the foregoing Islamic doctrine, Islamic end-time belief is especially strong in Iran and Iran’s government believes that war and confrontation will hasten the arrival of Mahdi (divine savior) to lead the Islamic Armageddon against non-Muslim humanity to make Islam victorious. So said President Ahmadinejad: “[We] must prepare ourselves to rule the world and the only way to do that is to put forth views on the basis of the Expectation of [the Mahdi’s] Return.” Even at the UN, his every speech starts with prayer for the Mahdi’s arrival.
In the face of this reality of Islamic doctrine and how it drives Iranian domestic and foreign policy, one only has to read President Obama’s statements regarding Islam to realize that he has a very unrealistic, candy-coated understanding of it, which leaves America and the rest of the non-Muslim world extremely vulnerable to Iran. President Obama’s latest statement, wherein he opined “[t]he Future Must Not Belong To Those Who Slander the Prophet of Islam” is indicative of how vulnerable we are.
. With that definition of slander in mind, what false slanderous statement can one say about a man who, according to sacred Islamic texts and scriptures, had physical relations with a nine year old, had people slaughtered for disbelief, satire and opposition to him, ordered people tortured, set up a system that systematically discriminates against women and non-Muslims, commanded war against non-Muslims for mere unbelief and made it lawful to murder them, steal from them, and to sell them into slavery, took his adopted son’s wife because he lusted after her, established the legality of raping captured women even when married and himself engaged in such horrendous acts? Given such a history, what slander can one utter against Muhammad that could possibly add to the negative information about him admitted in sacred Islamic doctrine? What Obama really means is that he does not want anyone telling the truth about Muhammad in a way that discredits him. Have you ever asked yourself why an American president would side with the Islamic mandate to stop criticism of Muhammad over long cherished American freedoms such as free speech?
Second, President Obama could not be more wrong. If “[t]he Future Must Not Belong To Those Who Slander the Prophet of Islam,” as President Obama claims, then our constitutional rights are destined to be lost. We will only retain our right to free speech and freedom of religion if the future belongs to those who have the courage to tell the truth about Islam enough such that we are mobilized as a nation to resist Islam in all of its malevolent guises and areas of advance. We have no chance in a World, wherein our Commander in Chief is, at best, an apologist of Islam, a most intolerant mainly political creed masquerading as a religion. To understand why we will lose our freedom and constitutional rights, we must pay heed to Karl Popper: “Unlimited tolerance must lead to the disappearance of tolerance. If we extend unlimited tolerance even to those who are intolerant, if we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the onslaught of the intolerant, then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them.”
We are stuck in a World lodged between a pending nuclear Iran on one side pining away for end-times domination and the destruction of America and Israel and of the entire non-Muslim world by extension, while President Obama sees it as his duty to defend Islam.
The consequences of living under such circumstances will indeed be dire. No fiction writer could have even dared imagine such an absurd scenario even twenty years ago. Yet, here we are with Iran gearing up toward leading the world to an apocalyptic event while Obama meekly “negotiates.” The end result of such an absurd situation is obvious – the dire EMP scenario outlined above. In the extensively interconnected world of the 21st century with all the shipping into and out of the United States, placing effective security measures to stop such a threat is next to impossible. We must stop every attempt whereas Iran need only succeed one time.
I hope to be proven wrong. I hope Iran will not succeed in achieving its goals. But I do not see President Obama undertaking the necessary steps to ensure our survival. Wisdom demands undertaking effective measures to preempt such a very likely disastrous end. When Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad continues to make bold and outrageous threats about destroying the U.S. and Israel as Iran moves ever closer to acquiring nuclear weapons, let us hope our leaders will not continue with the empty hubris exhibited to date.
I have said this for a while, why does Obama not thank European’s? South Americans? I could go on, why Muslims? I am lost on this one!
https://acenewsdesk.wordpress.com/?s=Muslim+Brotherhood For a year now I have almost proven Obama, yeah the one who is the leader of the USA has ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, I have proven his half Brother Malik is the main finance guy for the Muslim Brotherhood. I have not been alone. Just Google this “Obama Muslim Brotherhood Links” you get a LOT more. A VERY long list of articles and images proving without doubt Obama has some ties to the Muslim World and the Brotherhood. I know STRONG Obama fans will ignore this, all I ask is you look at it and prove me wrong. I say this with confidence because you will not be able to prove me wrong. I say each to their own, live and let live, if you in the USA are happy with Obama being in the Muslim Brotherhood then good luck to you. And good luck to Obama.
On behalf of the Administration, we wish Muslims in the United States and around the world a blessed and joyous celebration. Eid Mubarak.

Office of the Press SecretaryFor Immediate Release
As Muslims throughout the United States and around the world celebrate Eid-al-Fitr, Michelle and I extend our warmest wishes to them and their families. This last month has been a time of fasting, reflection, spiritual renewal, and service to the less fortunate. While Eid marks the completion of Ramadan, it also celebrates the common values that unite us in our humanity and reinforces the obligations that people of all faiths have to each other, especially those impacted by poverty, conflict, and disease.
In the United States, Eid also reminds us of the many achievements and contributions of Muslim Americans to building the very fabric of our nation and strengthening the core of our democracy. That is why we stand with people of all faiths, here at home and around the world, to protect and advance their rights to prosper, and we welcome their commitment to giving back to their communities.
Obama just admitted today in his press conference at the Pentagon that he doesn’t believe American troops can defeat ISIS:
It is not enough for us to simply send an American troops to temporarily set back organizations like ISIL, but to then, as soon as we leave see that void filled once again with extremists. It is going to be vital for us to make sure that we are preparing the kinds of local ground forces and security forces with our partners that can not only succeed against ISIL, but then sustained in terms of security and in terms of governance.
We had won the war in Iraq until Obama showed up and gave it away by pulling all of our troops out. And then ISIS happened.
Now he’s suggesting that American troops can’t succeed against ISIS, saying that we can only ‘temporarily’ set them back and that they will begin again once we leave.
So why leave?
Heck, if we had destroyed them in the first place in 2014 when they were much smaller, they wouldn’t exist today all over the Middle East.
Also, if Obama is so interested in partnerships, why deny weapons to the Kurds who are on the front lines against ISIS? Why deny aiding Egypt in their fight against ISIS when they ask for our help?
Just more lies.
Reporter: As an army reservist, I’m curious to know if you have any plans to send more troops overseas right now?
There are no current plans to do so. That’s not something we currently discussed. I’ve always said that I’m going to do what’s necessary to protect the homeland. One of the principles that we all agree on though – I press folks pretty hard, because in these conversations with my military advisors, I want to make sure I’m going blunt and unadulterated and uncensored advice. But in every one of the conversations we’ve had, the strong consensus is that in order for us to succeed long term in this fight against ISIL, we have to develop local security forces that can sustain progress.
It is not enough for us to simply send an American troops to temporarily set back organizations like ISIL, but to then, as soon as we leave see that void filled once again with extremists. It is going to be vital for us to make sure that we are preparing the kinds of local ground forces and security forces with our partners that can not only succeed against ISIL, but then sustained in terms of security and in terms of governance. Because if we try to do everything ourselves, all across the Middle East, all across N. Africa, we’ll be playing whack-a-mole and there would be unintended consequences that ultimately make us less secure.
Members of the Marion County Board of County Commissioners voted unanimously Tuesday to reinstate the Confederate flag atop a county building.
The flag was immediately raised once again over the Fallen Officers Memorial on Southeast 25th Street in Ocala.
Interim County Administrator Bill Kaufman and Marion County Board Chairman Stan McClain had decided to take down the Confederate flag at the end of June after South Carolina started discussing its laws surrounding the flag at its government centers. The discussion was prompted by the shooting deaths of nine people inside the Emmanel AME Church in Charleston.
The vote was pushed by members of the public who turned out for Tuesday’s county commission meeting to speak during a general public comments section.
“I think it’s a very good idea,” said resident Buddy Proctor. “It should be put back. It’s a Southern flag.”
“I don’t see racism in the symbol of the Confederate flag,” said Debbie Rotstein. “I see it was part of the Civil War, and it was part of our history.”
“We are all exposed to messages and symbols that may not connect for us, but we should all honor our ancestors and protect free expression,” said state Rep. Dennis Baxley, (R-Ocala).
