Geraldo, Dr. Phil, Lindsey Graham, Evan Thomas and others … get your heads out of the sand! Stop trying to protect Islam. Shame on those trying to medicalize mass murder. Call him what he is … a terrorist … he is a coward and a murderer. Stop inventing excuses due to political correctness. Political correctness is a danger to society.

The system has bought into political correctness and the media is all too happy to applaud it … it hasn’t just killed real journalism … it has now killed real Americans! Every pontificating politically correct official, who has been too cowardly to do the right thing, should be held accountable as accomplices to those murdered!

Most of FOXNews, less Geraldo, and ABC are the only mainstream media who are actually doing their homework. Even the FBI ruled out links to terrorism right at the beginning saying they didn’t want to go down that road.

U.S. intelligence agencies were aware months ago that Army Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan was attempting to make contact with people associated with al-Qaida, two American officials briefed on classified material in the case told ABC News, according to an report.

Hasan, murderer of 13 people and wounding 29 others at Fort Hood, also worshipped at the same mosque as two of the 9/11 terrorists. According to the London Sunday Telegraph, Hasan attended services at the Dar al-Hijrah mosque in Falls Church, Va., during 2001 at the same time as Sept. 11 hijackers Nawaf al-Hamzi and Hani Hanjour. Funeral services for Hasan’s mother also was held at that mosque. The imam at the mosque at the time Hasan attended services there was Anwar al-Awlaki, a radical cleric who has been described as a supporter of al-Qaida. A third 9/11 hijacker attended al-Awlaki’s lectures in California. Now, the FBI wants to interrogate Hasan to see if he met or knew al-Hamzi or Hanjour, reports the Telegraph.

Lieberman, senate panel chair said, “There are very, very strong warning signs here that Dr Hasan had become an Islamist extremist and, therefore, that this was a terrorist act,” he told Fox News. “If that is true, the murder of these 13 people was a terrorist act.” There will now be a senate panel probe whether the army missed warning signs that Hasan, a army psychiatrist, may have been preparing an attack.

Hasan also made a six figure salary yet lived very low key … where did his money go? Following the money will yield important results.

Radical Islam comes from Islam and nowhere else … those are the roots. There are some great Americans who are classified Muslim, that is because they are classified that from their birth heritage, but do not practice Islam to the radical extent … sort of like “Islam-lite.”

When it is all said and done, there must be a change in policies to eliminate this political “incorrectness” disguised as diversity that provides dangerous protectionism policies to specific people groups.

What was Major Nidal Malik Hasan doing before he went on his shooting rampage at Fort Hood? He was giving away his belongings and copies of the Koran. Why would he do that? Because, he had made his decision to execute his terrorist act of killing Americans, as he shouted “Allahu Akbar”, or “god is greatest” while opening fire on military personnel at Fort Hood, Texas, killing 13 people (12 soldiers and 1 civilian) and wounding 38, according to the base commander, Lieutenant General Robert Cone.

The gunman Hasan showed no signs of worry or stress when he stopped at a convenience store for his daily breakfast of hash browns, said Jeannie Strickland, manager of a local 7-Eleven. “He came in just like normal,” she told the Houston Chronicle, “nothing weird, nothing out of the ordinary.” Video footage shown on CNN of Hasan in a shop in the morning – about six to seven hours before the shooting – showed him looking relaxed as he made purchases. Therefore he was totally aware of what he was going to do and very calm about it. Not liking to shoot didn’t seem to bother him today.

Hasan was an American born Muslim. An Imam who knew him said you would never know he would have done such a thing. He also said he was a devout man and was concerned about how to be a “better Muslim.” Therein lies the problem … to be the best Muslim is to embrace everything the Koran says and everything Muhammad decrees you need to embrace. This includes killing the infidel … those who are not Muslim or will not embrace it. It also designates those promised virgins if you die while sacrificing your life for the decrees of Muhammad. Hasan would have been drawn to this as he was looking for a beautiful devout Muslim wife but unable to find one. He also was proselytizing those he was counseling with Islam.

Then to top it all off the FBI while going through Hasan’s phone and computer records found website postings by a man identifying himself as Nidal Hasan who was sympathetic to suicide bombings. Federal law enforcement officials told Associated Press that Hasan had come to their attention at least six months ago because of his web postings, which discussed suicide bombings and other threats.

One of the web posts that authorities reviewed was a blog that equated suicide bombers with a soldier throwing himself on a grenade to save the lives of his comrades. “To say that this soldier committed suicide is inappropriate. It’s more appropriate to say he is a brave hero that sacrificed his life for a more noble cause,” said his post. “Scholars [sympathetic to Islam] have paralleled this to suicide bombers whose intention, by sacrificing their lives, is to help save Muslims by killing enemy soldiers.” Another post said, “If one suicide bomber can kill 100 enemy soldiers because they were caught off guard that would be considered a strategic victory.”

Looking at these facts, and others that will be found, really point to the reason of this senseless slaughter was Hasan’s commitment to Islam. Any other conclusions will just be bogus smokescreens from the political correct crowd. Radical Islam always starts with Islam. The media will try to leave this factor of Islam out of the equation at every step possible. The FBI was even warned to be careful of how it reported its findings

Hasan was a Muslim terrorist, not a person who snapped from potential deployment, but bowed in obedience to Islam. Leftist media, and Dr. Phil, don’t blame public policy, for Hasan’s decision to murder. Hasan should not even still been in the military but due to the political correctness of protecting Islam was allowed to stay. This was a dangerous decision to make as we now see the consequences of keeping him around.

Hasan is responsible for his actions and who he became from his Islamic teaching. He made the decision to become a terrorist. It is time to get rid of the political correctness in the military.

If a Christian went on a rampage like this … guess what would be blamed!



The UN has in front of them the Defamation of Religions Resolution which it plans to introduce later this year. Everyone should be in opposition to this resolution.

The Defamation of Religions Resolution seeks to criminalize words or actions against the religion of Islam as attacks. As incredible as it sounds, passing this resolution could allow a Christian to be persecuted under UN approval. You need to voice your protest of this resolution.

This resolution seeks to protect the Islamic religion instead of individuals who hold other religious beliefs. The result is that this resolution gives UN sanction to Muslim majority countries to persecute Christians and other religious minorities for not sharing the same beliefs as Muslims. It also provides legitimacy to these countries’ blasphemy laws which are often used to accuse, imprison, and even murder Christians.

While Defamation of Religions Resolutions have been introduced and passed in previous years, causing many Christians to lose their lives, it is up again this year for re-authorization. Policy experts at the United States Commission on International Religious Freedom believe there is an opportunity to defeat it this year.This resolution needs to be defeated as a human rights issue.

American Journalist Sued in Canada Over al-Qaida Disclosures

American author and award-winning journalist Dr. Paul L. Williams is being hauled into a Canadian court over allegations he made about al-Qaida terrorists at an Ontario university.

Williams is being sued by McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, over his claims that Islamic terrorists stole 180 pounds of nuclear material from the school’s nuclear reactor.

The suit stems from comments Williams made during an appearance on the nationally syndicated radio show “Coast to Coast AM,” which also airs in several Canadian cities, and remarks made in his book, “Dunces of Doomsday.”

Williams, who has a Master of Divinity degree and a Doctor of Philosophy degree, “broke no American statute and his alleged violation of Canadian law took place not in Canada, but at his home in Pennsylvania,” according to a press release from Tracy Hood, director of No Compromise News, which is chronicling Williams’ case. The release outlined Williams’ predicament: “The case is significant since it represents the first time an American journalist is being forced to submit to Canadian law.

“Williams has been stripped of his Constitutional rights and forced to deplete his financial savings to pay for his Canadian lawyers.

“‘The matter would have gone away if I simply signed an apology,’ Williams said, ‘but what kind of journalist would I be if I apologized for telling the truth?’

“Williams visited McMaster University in May, 2006 to verify accounts by Janice Kephardt of the 9/11 Commission, journalists Bill Gertz and Scott Wheeler of The Washington Times, former federal prosecutor John Loftus, and others, that the liberal Canadian university had harbored leading al-Qaida operatives, including Adnan el-Shukrijumah, Jaber A. Elbaneh, Abderraouf Jdey, and Amer el-Maati.

“The same sources testified that when the al-Qaida operatives left McMaster, over 80 kilograms (180 pounds) of nuclear material was reported missing.

“During his visit to McMaster, Williams says that he discovered an over-abundance of professors from terror-sponsoring countries within the university’s department of engineering.

“In the Division of Earthquake Engineering, he says, 9 out of 10 faculty members were from the [Egyptian] Universities of Cairo and Alexandria. Similarly, Williams maintains the three McMaster officials who head the College of Engineering and supervise the work at the reactor all hailed from the University of Cairo.

“Jane Corbin of the BBC has reported that the engineering department at the University of Cairo remains under the control of the Muslim Brotherhood.

“Williams says that he and several of his associates, including a licensed private investigator, met with officials from the Ontario Provincial Police, who confirmed that McMaster has been under scrutiny for a long time; that many of the students have ties to radical Islam and terrorist organizations; and that Islamic members of the faculty have conducted clandestine meetings at an off-campus address in Hamilton . . .

“Supporting Williams’ contentions, Hamid Mir, the only journalist to interview Osama bin Laden in the wake of 9/11, has testified on tape that Anas el-Liby, a founder of al-Qaida, attended McMaster and managed, along with other al-Qaida operatives, to steal 80 kilos of nuclear material from the poorly guarded facilities at the school.”

According to the press release, Peter Downward, the attorney representing the University, said: “We regard Mr. Williams’ allegations about McMaster as being on a par with UFO reports and JFK conspiracy theories.”

The press release continues: “However, the predominance of Muslims from terror-sponsoring countries at McMaster and the lack of security at the reactor has been verified by independent sources, including Sean Michaels of GlobalTV-CA.

“Moreover, Ontario police officials have labeled the campus ‘a hive of jihadi activity.’

“In Canada, any person offended by a statement can file a lawsuit, and it remains up to the respondent to prove his innocence.”

Dear Fellow American,

Barack Obama and the socialist leadership in Congress are working furiously to change America!  They want to transform our nation and they’re spending trillions of tax dollars to do it.

I am not talking about the type of misery Jimmy Carter inflicted on our nation.  Conservatives were able to reverse the course Carter had put us on.  But what we’re seeing today isn’t like anything you and I have ever seen!  I’m talking about a whole scale, radical transformation of our nation.  From our national defense to our foreign policy to our free market economic system.  Obama and company have implemented and have plans to further implement massive government control over each of us.

Americans – your friends and neighbors – do not fully realize the radical changes Barack Obama and the socialists in Congress are foisting upon our way of life!

But you do. And I do as well. Today the Obamaites, George Soros, Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, Rahm Emanuel, Harry Reid – the small but powerful group of left-wing radicals who are at the controls of this transformation are all disciples of the 1960s radical Saul Alinsky. Alinsky’s book, Rules for Radicals, was the Little Red Book for the college radicals of the 1960s. I know, I was one of them.

I understand better than most Alinsky’s deep, deep hatred of America. A hate that ran so deep he wrote a blueprint for tearing our nation down. And while I outgrew and repented my anti-Americanism and came to see how great and generous our country is, many agents of the radical left never grew up.  In fact, today many of them are leaders in Congress and in our White House, all embracing Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals – the road map for turning our nation upside down.

With every passing day we see what lays behind the Administration’s piecemeal efforts to take over the car makers, the banks and the health care system: creating a new America that will bear little resemblance to the country in which we grew up.  You and I must counter this. The Freedom Center willingly takes on the Paul Revere role.  We have a massive media blitz planned detailing precisely the radical transformation we’re undergoing.

I am writing a new booklet that I must blanket on college campuses as the new school year starts.  This booklet – “Alinsky’s Rules for Obama’s Radicalism” – paints a clear picture of Barack Obama’s agenda for our nation.  And we have prepared an advertisement to run in papers around the country calling on Americans to derail this train before it’s too late.


David Horowitz

President & Founder of the Freedom Center

P.S. The idea that the disciples of Saul Alinsky – a man who so hated America he detailed a plan to tear it apart – are running our nation is hard to swallow. But the facts bear it out. Stand with me and the Freedom Center as we ride like Paul Revere across the nation and sound the alarm!

Gym, Geometry or Jihad?

A group of Virginians who are outraged about the plans to expand a Muslim school may have just gotten the ammunition they need to block the project. The Academy, whose activities were suspicious enough to warrant an investigation by a federal commission, has been incredibly controversial since its doors opened. After last year, the U.S. panel actually recommended the school, which is funded entirely by the Saudi Arabian government, be closed. Among other things, reporters found that the textbooks encouraged Muslims to kill adulterers and converts from Islam. According to curriculum obtained by MSNBC in 2008, the Islamic Saudi Academy has been a breeding ground for terrorists. School officials have denied the claims, but that may prove difficult after yesterday’s court ruling.

At the insistence of the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals, a U.S. District judge increased the sentence of Ahmed Omar Abu Ali, an Al Qaeda operative who was convicted for plotting to assassinate President Bush, from 30 years to life. It turns out that Ali was the valedictorian of his 1999 class at the Islamic Saudi Academy in Fairfax County. So much for teaching peace and tolerance! These schools are fueling the very ideas that made terrorists fly planes into the twin towers! Meanwhile, residents are doing everything they can to stop the plans, even forming an official coalition. The request to expand the Academy is so unpopular in Falls Church, Virginia that 46 people have asked to speak at an upcoming hearing.

In a New York Times article earlier this summer, the head of the group, James Lafferty, said, “We feel that it is really a madrassa, a training place for young impressionable Muslim students in some of the most extreme and fanatical teachings of Islam. That concerns us greatly.” And it should concern all of us who don’t want to experience another 9-11 before our government takes this home-grown extremism seriously.

I’m getting tired of this … time to start deporting!

As usual The New York Times passed on the opportunity to publish a great op-ed letter to President Barack Obama from Lou Pritchett, a former vice president of Procter & Gamble. Pritchett worked for that company for 36 years, until his retirement in 1989.

Confirmed by the Internet watchdog Snopes, here’s a sample of what Pritchett wrote:

Dear President Obama:

You are the thirteenth President under whom I have lived and unlike any of the others, you truly scare me. …

You scare me because you have never run a company or met a payroll. …

You scare me because for over half your life you have aligned yourself with radical extremists who hate America and you refuse to publicly denounce these radicals who wish to see America fail.

You scare me because you are a cheerleader for the ‘blame America’ crowd and deliver this message abroad.

You scare me because you want to change America to a European style country where the government sector dominates instead of the private sector.

You scare me because you want to replace our health care system with a government controlled one.

You scare me because you prefer ‘wind mills’ to responsibly capitalizing on our own vast oil, coal and shale reserves. …

You scare me because you have begun to use ‘extortion’ tactics against certain banks and corporations.

You scare me because your own political party shrinks from challenging you on your wild and irresponsible spending proposals. …

You scare me because the media gives you a free pass on everything you do.

You scare me because you demonize and want to silence the Limbaughs, Hannitys, O’Reillys and Becks who offer opposing, conservative points of view.

You scare me because you prefer controlling over governing.

Finally, you scare me because if you serve a second term I will probably not feel safe in writing a similar letter in 8 years.

Lou Pritchett

Thank you, Mr. Pritchett, for your love for America, honesty and willingness to risk your reputation by speaking up to this administration.

Here are some more . . .

President Obama:

You scare me because so many amazing corporate and American leaders, such as Lou Pritchett, are saying you scare them.

You scare me because after you initiate more government borrowing and bailouts than all presidents combined, you then require Congress to follow a system that is “pay-as-you-go.”

You scare me because you really do believe that going into massive amounts of debt can remedy our economy in the long run.

You scare me because your actions don’t reflect the federal governmental constraints and fiscally prudent principles of our Founding Fathers and Constitution.

You scare me because you buy and run the banking, automobile and (soon) health industries with taxpayers’ money but refuse to call it socialism.

You scare me because you claim to be a fighter for minorities and the promises of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness yet do not defend the unborn. What greater minority is there than those in the womb, against whom you already have enacted more pro-abortion laws than anyone since the Roe v. Wade decision?

You scare me because you promise to defend the U.S. against all potential enemies yet pacify those harboring terrorists, fight for the rights of combative detainees, and enable the enemies of Israel.

You scare me because your media team (including the mainstream media) seeks to label as radical or in some way penalize any opposing conservative voices … such as conservative talk show hosts, news agencies, columnists and actors.

You scare me because your media team does not address or diminish in any way your deification before the world, epitomized by the editor of Newsweek who stated on Chris Matthews’ MSNBC show: “In a way, Obama’s standing above the country, above the world. He’s sort of God.” (How much scarier can it get than representative statements like that in a republic that once stood for a balance among political powers and a government “by the people, for the people”?)

You scare me . . . period!

The government limits Christianity in prisons but by all means let Islam do what it wants !

Last week, the FBI arrested four members of a would-be terrorist cell in New York.  While the arrests eliminated the immediate threat from this particular group, it highlighted a much bigger threat: the spawning of terrorism in American prisons.

The four men, allegedly angered by the deaths of Muslims in Afghanistan, had planned to bomb several synagogues in the Bronx and shoot down a military plane using a Stinger missile.  Thankfully the plastic explosives and the Stinger missile they planned on using were fake because the FBI, acting on a tip from another member of their mosque had penetrated the cell and sold them fake goods and foiled the plot.

Maybe these terrorists were not in the know weapon-wise but their rage was well-developed.  Their leader considered Jews “the source of all problems in America.”  They “wanted to make a statement” by targeting synagogues and destroying military aircraft.

What is more frightening than their rage is the fact that there are potentially a lot more of them where they came from … our prisons.  At least two of the terror suspects converted to radical Islam while in prison, while the other two were also the product of what is called “jailhouse Islam.”

An NYPD report, entitled Radicalization in the West: The Homegrown Threat, concludes that in-prison conversions to Islam “fuel anger towards the United States.”  Part of the reason is that the men doing the converting are often angry and resentful and looking for someone to blame for their predicament so they pass that anger on.  Most of it though has to do with the kind of Islam being preached in American prisons since in many American prisons, prisoners learn about Islam from other prisoners.  These prisoners, in turn, rely on reading material targeted at prisoners and their resentments as the book called The Noble Koran does.

This version of the Koran, distributed by a Wahhabi group, included “numerous interpolations” not present in the original Arabic.  It includes a 22-page appendix entitled “A Call to Jihad” urging “war against non-Muslims who have not submitted to Islamic rule.”  Other literature from the same group told prisoners that non-Islamic government “must be sincerely hated and despised for the pleasure of Allah.”

While some prison systems have banned this group’s literature, others haven’t.  The effect of this literature on angry and, in many cases, unstable men isn’t hard to imagine … as the events in New York remind us, we don’t have to imagine it.

What’s the answer?  For starters, officials should crack down on the purveyors of radical Islam in our prisons.  That kind of literature and the message it spreads have no business in our prisons.  They should focus on the problem … Islam … not religion in general because that would kick out Christianity – the only thing that can really help the prisoners because it brings the life-changing Gospel of Jesus Christ into prisons across America.

The fact of the matter is that prisoners are looking for solutions to their problems.  And they will find one in drugs, or gangs, or even in hate-filled jihadism and Stinger missiles.  They need to be offered the only solution that will work … forgiveness of their sins, and transformation through Jesus Christ.

The good news came on Easter Sunday. Americans said a prayer of thanks when three Navy Seals freed American Captain Richard Phillips from Somali pirates. By simply doing their job, honorably and effectively, these remarkable men set the right standard for a civilized world.

The bad news is the Seals’ show of strength and leadership has been a singular event in a dangerous world.

In New York In the 1970s, civilization was giving way to predators. Mayor Rudy Giuliani and Police Chief William Bratton’s succeeded in lowering crime in New York City much in the way the piracy issue needs to be handled today.

New York City in the 1970s

It seemed like every other car parked on the street had a sign posted in its window that said: “No Radio.” These “No Radio” signs were a white flag of surrender to the rampant crime that terrorized New York during this time. They were a signal that the criminals were winning; the ultimate sign of the weakness of civilization in the face of the uncivilized predators, aggressors and thieves.

Much like New York 30 years ago, the world today is full of predators and aggressors constantly testing the limits of what they can get away with. They prey on the weak and the innocent. And the signal they are receiving from America and the civilized world is that there are no consequences for their bad behavior.

Hanging Up a “No Radio” Sign in the International Arena

What essentially is happening is the world is hanging up “No Radio” signs … and the Somali pirates are just the latest example. Signs mean nothing to …

… a North Korea firing a long-range missile capable of carrying a nuclear weapon deliberately on the day the President is giving a big speech on nuclear disarmament, and the civilized world wrings it hands and talks about legal conventions.

… the Iranian dictatorship cheerfully announces that is has 7,300 centrifuges to make nuclear bombs and nothing happens.

… Hamas firing a few more missiles into Israel and everyone turns a blind eye ignoring it.

… a Pakistan that transfers power to the Taliban in its North West Frontier and the world stands idly by.

… a Mexican drug war going on that barely makes the newspapers.

… Somali pirates holding approximately 260 hostages and continue to seize ships

Strength Works Against Predators … Weakness Only Invites More Predation

As mayor, Rudy Giuliani, along with his police commissioner, William Bratton, transformed New York by doing something very simple in conception but very difficult in execution. They cleaned up crime in New York by showing that strength works against predatory aggressors.

Weakness only invites more predatory aggression.

Mayor Giuliani and Commissioner Bratton were inspired by a theory developed by social scientist James Q. Wilson and criminologist George Kelling called the “broken windows” theory.

If criminals believe there are no consequences, more (and worse) crime will follow.

The Broken Windows theory simply states that if a building has a broken window that is not fixed, the message is sent that no one cares. Vandals believe there will be no consequences for their bad behavior, and consequently, worse behavior will follow. However, fixing the broken window sends a message that people care about their community and are watching, which deters crime.

Giuliani and Bratton acted on the insights of the Broken Windows theory to transform New York from one of the most dangerous cities in America to the safest big city in the country by treating minor crimes like vandalism, prostitution, and loitering like broken windows. They deployed police to where they were most needed using the CompStat (computer statistics) system. And instead of tolerating these crimes and showing weakness to criminals and would-be criminals, the police showed strength. They instituted a “zero tolerance” policy for so-called minor crimes.

When other criminals witnessed this show of strength, they were deterred. Citizens, meanwhile, felt safer walking the streets and taking the subway. They took more responsibility for their neighborhoods and helped make them safer as well.

In New York, restoring a sense of order to the streets meant that police didn’t have to spend all their time responding to actual crime. Their show of strength inspired citizens to care more for their own communities and deterred criminals from committing crimes in the first place.

This is a lesson that all those who now dismiss the Somali pirates as “distractions” would do well to learn. It is only weakness and stupidity to do nothing!

Strength works … weakness fails. Stand up and end piracy!

President Barack Obama is making some dangerous choices in rejecting the anti-terrorism policies of the Bush administration and backing down from confronting North Korea over its threatening missile program. This weakness in foreign policy will embolden America’s enemies.

As well, the effort to treat terrorism as a criminal justice problem – rather than an act of war – will only bog the country down in pursuit of enemy combatants.

“Dick Cheney is clearly right in saying that, between the court decisions about terrorists and the administration actions, the United States is running greater risks of getting attacked than we were under President Bush,” Gingrich said.

Pointing to what he described as a “vivid demonstration of weakness in foreign policy” the former House speaker Gingrich said Obama’s actions, including his proposal for a resumption of nuclear arms limitation talks, reflect “a dangerous fantasy that runs an enormous risk.

The embarrassing denial of the United States appeal to the United Nations Security Council is a vivid demonstration of this weakness. This is resembles the Carter administration’s weakness in foreign policy.

Emboldened by this a North Korean envoy threatened retaliation if the United Nations imposed further sanctions for the missile launch, warning the U.N. Security Council that it would take “strong steps” if the 15-nation body took any action in response to Pyongyang’s launch of a long-range rocket, Reuters reported.

North Korea is a totally irresponsible dictatorship run by a person who is clearly out of touch with reality. They are responsible for the deaths of several million people because of its totalitarian rule, how much longer should such a regime be tolerated?

Under Kim Jong-Il this dictatorship has been so bad it has starved the people and the average North Korean today is several inches shorter than a generation ago. If we do nothing they are going to continue building nuclear weapons and missiles. If they are this aggressive when they are weak what do you think they will be like as the get stronger?

The United States should have shot down the North Korean missile, while making it very clear that any missile launched with a trajectory in the direction of the United States will be met with an overwhelming counter-attack.

The Obama administration is rapidly undermining the U.S. missile defense system while imagining a fantasy world of trust and cooperation. Ronald Reagan believed we had to have a missile defense system to stop any country from breaking free and blackmailing other countries. Then there were only five nuclear powers: the Soviet Union, China, France, Britain, and the United States. Now we have North Korean, Iranian and Pakistani nuclear developments.

Obama is in a world where Hamas is firing missiles every day into Israel, Iran is building nuclear weapons, and the North Koreans are firing missiles, and he has some wonderful fantasy idea that talking to everybody is all that is required.

That is why it is very dangerous to have a fantasy foreign policy, just like refusing to say we have a war on terror … instead they are just manmade disasters.

I’m not comforted with the thought that 9/11 was a “manmade disaster” when it was a “terrorist attack.”

Get real Obama …
