In January of 1971 the United States under the Nixon Administration put into action a plan to bring Cambodia activelyRead more
Prince 51 sheeted west 60 feet above the blacked-out compound wall on a hot cushion of thinning rotor wash. Assaulters on the right side of the aircraft saw the third story of the target building flash by in the darkness with its strange, high-walled white balcony.
The MH-X Silent Hawk’s gray tail rotor skidded left before the secret aircraft pivoted back east toward the open section of the compound known as “Courtyard Alpha”.
The nose of the stealth helicopter reared up slightly to decelerate. The SEAL assault team inside opened doors and rotated aluminum arms outward that held the fast ropes in preparation for their slide down to the courtyard.
The pilots of the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment who fly the aircraft known as the MH-X (the actual name remains classified) were already fighting to maintain control of the heavily loaded helicopter.Read more
The 2016 presidential election, already one of the wildest in American history, has been rocked by the announcement that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is reopening its investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server while Secretary of State.
Apparently while investigating disgraced ex-Congressman Anthony Weiner’s transmission of sexually explicit images to a fifteen-year-old girl, the FBI discovered more emails relevant to Hillary Clinton’s own infamous case.
At the time, Weiner was married to Huma Abedin, Clinton’s personal aide, perhaps best known for her alleged family ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. The emails appear to have been found on a computer used by both Abedin and Weiner.
Where all this goes from here remains unclear. That said, in the interest of helping a scandal-weary electorate put these new developments in context, shall we review a few things?
I have worked in national security my entire life. Most of that has been in the intelligence community surrounded by classified information. For twenty years, I worked undercover in the Central Intelligence Agency, recruiting sources, producing intelligence and running operations. I have a pretty concrete understanding of how classified information is handled and how government communications systems work.Read more
To understand how Radical Islam can immigrate into the U.S. without a man crossing the border, lets go back…way back.
In 1974, in the middle of a Michael Parkinson interview, Muhammad Ali decided to dispense with all the safe conventions of chat show etiquette.
“You say I got white friends,” he declared, “I say they are associates.”
When his host dared to suggest that the boxer’s trainer of 14 years standing, Angelo Dundee, might be a friend, Ali insisted, gruffly: “He is an associate.”
Within seconds, with Parkinson failing to get a word in edgeways, Ali had provided a detailed account of his reasoning.
“Elijah Muhammad,” he told the TV viewers “Is the one who preached that the white man of America, number one, is the Devil!”Read more
Julian Assange intimated that a recently murdered Democratic National Committee staffer may have leaked sensitive, troubling emails to him rather than the Russians, and then paid for it with his life.
The staffer, Seth Conrad Rich, 27, was a data analyst for the DNC. Early on the morning of July 8, he was shot and killed in what police have described as a robbery attempt.
There’s just one problem with that: Rich was just shot and killed; he wasn’t robbed.
