    White House Spins Obama’s Role in Benghazi: From Competence to Irrelevance (VIDEO)

    With the weekend’s grand slam appearance on the Sunday talk shows by yet another official unqualified to talk about Benghazi, the Obama Administration has again shot itself in the foot. White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer attempted to defend U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice’s mischaracterization of the Benghazi terrorist attack, which … More

    Obama Dismisses Benghazi Investigations as “Side Show”

    President Obama yesterday dismissed the House investigations into the Benghazi debacle as a political “side show.” In a news conference with British Prime Minister David Cameron, the President complained testily that nothing new had been uncovered in last week’s hearing of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. “The whole … More

    Congress Takes On U.N.’s Richard Falk over Boston Comments

    Outraged Members of Congress are circulating a letter demanding that the Obama Administration take action against U.N. Special Ambassador Richard Falk, the man who had the unmitigated gall to write that Americans brought the Boston bombings on themselves. Falk made similarly appalling statements after September 11, 2001, and it sadly … More

    Benghazi: No, Let’s Not Move On

    Secretary of State John Kerry said it not once but twice during his House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing on Wednesday: Let’s move on from investigating Benghazi to “more important things.” This was not just an unfortunate turn of phrase. As the repetition shows, it clearly reveals Kerry’s thinking: We must … More

    Congressional Hearing Produces Shocker on Benghazi

    Kudos to members of the House Foreign Affairs Committee for squarely placing Benghazi on the table at today’s hearing with Secretary of State John Kerry. Kerry’s answers were nothing less than shocking. What we learned is that State is conducting yet another internal review of Benghazi, initiated by Kerry himself … More

    Another U.N. Meeting Equates "Women’s Rights" with Abortion, Sexual Rights

    Once again, this year’s U.N. Commission on the Status of Women (CSW)—ostensibly themed on the prevention of violence against women and girls—actually focused on expanding so-called sexual and reproductive rights for women and girls, including abortion. Prior to negotiations even beginning, media coverage preemptively pointed a finger at religion and … More

    North Korea Threatens Nuclear Strike on U.S.

    So much for basketball diplomacy. Dennis Rodman’s meeting with his new BFF Kim Jong-un didn’t prevent the regime from threatening a pre-emptive nuclear strike to turn Washington, D.C., into a “sea of flames.” While Rodman’s trip can be dismissed as narcissistic self-promotion, North Korea’s bombastic rhetoric shouldn’t be so easily … More

    Four Questions for Hillary Clinton on Benghazi

    In testimony before the Senate and House Foreign Relations Committees, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will have an opportunity to show Washington what it means to “take full responsibility” for the Benghazi disaster. At a very minimum, it should mean providing real answers. As the Obama team from the day … More

    Algeria: Terrorism on the Move in North Africa and the Sahel

    Yesterday, in western Algeria, near the Libyan border, militants under the command of Mokhtar Belmokhtar (a former al-Qaeda leader) attacked a gas field, taking hostages, including Americans. The attack was supposedly in response to France’s intervention in Mali. While details are still emerging, this debacle further highlights the freedom with … More

    Kerry in Spotlight; Hot Issues Remain for Next Secretary of State

    Last week, embattled U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice took herself out of the running for Secretary of State as Hillary Clinton’s successor. It did not take long for the rumor mill to pick up that President Obama is leaning toward Senator John Kerry (D-MA) for the post. Though Rice did not … More
