I Remember When the Media Refused to Air the Bin Laden Videos

As the terrorist group ISIS releases a third video purporting to show the beheading of a British aid worker, I have no doubt that the media will be continuously replaying the jolting image of the ISIS executioner, throughout the next few days, as he stands over his impending victim with his steely knife. Granted, these are horrific events and all sympathies should be extended to the families of these individuals, who were so grotesquely murdered.

Outside the 9/11 Memorial Museum in downtown Manhattan, the memorial plaza overflowed with tributes and tokens Friday morning, the day after the 13th anniversary.

Crowe's cartoon is ignorant of Christian beliefs: reader opinion

J.D. Crowe displays Osama Bin Laden and Phil Robertson together in a cartoon and implies that they are the same in their attitudes of spreading their respective religions and that they both are willing to kill those who do not convert. Anyone so ignorant of Christianity is not someone who can be given credence in anything and any newspaper that carries such a commentator is not worth my reading.

Q&A: How much did it cost the U.S. to track down bin Laden?

Al-Qaida's shadowy new 'emir' in South Asia has a tough job ahead

Thrust into the limelight after being named leader of al-Qaida's newly created South Asian wing, he has been entrusted with reviving the network's fortunes at a time when Islamic State is generating grisly headlines and luring recruits. Little is known about the man whose thinking was shaped in radicalized seminaries and madrassas of Pakistan and who will now spearhead al-Qaida's activities from Afghanistan to Myanmar.

Effort to rescue Foley and Sotloff was larger than Bin Laden raid

The fighting force deployed to rescue journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff was made up of roughly 70 to 80 U.S. commandos, a much larger group than the one which killed Osama Bin Laden. While it appears the two Americans had once been held at the raid location, they were apparently moved prior to the operation.

Schieffer Undermines Obama Campaign's Anti-al-Qaeda Talking Point He Advanced

CBS's Bob Schieffer on Thursday night used the 9/11 anniversary as a chance to chastise Presidents Bush and Obama for making declarations that the war on terrorism had been won, but two and a half years ago Schieffer himself championed the Obama administration's campaign boast. "Two years after 9/11, George Bush stood beneath a huge sign declaring 'Mission Accomplished,' but, of course, it wasn't," Schieffer declared on the CBS Evening News in misrepresenting the sign which only meant the crew of the aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln had completed their mission.

Here's Obama's Legal Justification for ISIS War

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest on Thursday laid out the administration's legal argument for going to war against ISIS based on the 2001 authorization to use military force - even though the organization did not exist then and has publicly split with al-Qaida.

Hold On, Mr. President

"Do you have a strategy now, Mr. President?" asked the cover of the Daily News next to a photo of the second American journalist to be beheaded by the terrorist group ISIS. In domestic policy, encouraging government to act leads to nonsense like the "stimulus spending" that created boondoggles such as Cash for Clunkers.
