Watch American sailors down on their knees before their Iranian captors

In a speech Wednesday, Secretary of State John Kerry thanked Iran for freeing a group of ten U.S. Navy sailors captured by the Revolutionary Guard.

Kerry’s ‘gracious’ remarks came an hour after Iranian state media released video and photos of the U.S. sailors being captured. Earlier in an official statement, the Iranian navy claimed that that Kerry apologized for the alleged “incursion” into Iranian waters.

After Validmir Putin threatens Turkey…Turkey threatens Russia

Vladimir Putin escalated his confrontation with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan over the downing of a Russian bomber, saying relations are beyond repair while declaring Syria a no-fly zone for Turkish military aircraft.

“Turkey used to violate Syrian airspace all the time,” Putin told reporters. With Russia’s deployment of the S-400 anti-aircraft system “Let them try and fly there now.” Russia’s most advanced air-defense system now covers the whole of Syria

Turkish Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mevlüt Cavusoglu, has boasted on Turkish television that Russia should be very scared and wary of Turkey because they can occupy the country in seven days.

Will NATO, in which Turkey regrettably is a member, go along with this insanity?

PENTAGON FOLLIES: Obama Regime tries to blame Russia for airstrikes on Syrian Army base

10-vi OH, THIS IS RICH! No surprise that unnamed Washington officials would deny targeting Syrian Army positions, but they are trying make us believe that the Russians (allies of Assad) staged the attack.

Bashar al-Assad says the success of a military campaign by Russia, Syria and its allies is vital to save the Middle East from "destruction".

Bashar al-Assad says the success of a military campaign by Russia, Syria and its allies is vital to save the Middle East from “destruction”.

Washington Post The U.S. military alleged Monday that Russian warplanes were responsible for an attack on a Syrian army position in eastern Syria, an airstrike that Syria blamed on the U.S.-led coalition battling the Islamic State militant group in the country.

A U.S. military official, speaking on the condition of anonymity (‘Anonymous’ officials are always behind the biggest lies) because of the sensitivity of the issue, said later in the day that the Pentagon is “certain” that a Russian warplane carried out the attack. There was no response to that assertion from either Syria or Russia.

Damage after airstrike

The Syrian government issued a statement earlier in the day accusing coalition aircraft of carrying out the overnight attack in the eastern province of Deir al-Zour. The government said three Syrian soldiers were killed and 13 injured in the strike.

It said four coalition warplanes struck a Syrian army post with nine rockets late Sunday, killing three soldiers and injuring 13. The strike also destroyed three armored vehicles, four military vehicles, two heavy machine guns and a depot of arms and ammunition, the ministry said.

Syria’s Foreign Ministry called the attack on the army post an act of “heinous aggression.” It said it sent letters of complaint to the U.N. secretary general and the U.N. Security Council, calling for the United Nations to take “urgent measures” to prevent a recurrence of such an incident.

“The aggression on the military post hinders the efforts aiming to fight terrorism and reiterates that the U.S.-led coalition lacks seriousness and credibility in the fight against terrorism,” the Foreign Ministry statement said.

Watch this State Department spokesdummy, John Kirby, try to tap dance around this one:

TENNESSEE: Chattanooga Muslim terrorist attack still not called a terrorist attack; Military victims’ families denied benefits, purple hearts

nypostcover_islam_640More than five months after Muslim terrorist attacks on two military facilities in Chattanooga, TN, left four Marines and a sailor dead, federal investigators still have not determined whether the attack was terrorism – and it’s financially costing the families of those who died, as Purple Heart awards hang in the balance.

2015-07-17-2

Stars & Stripes  The July 16 attack killed Gunnery Sgt. Thomas Sullivan, 40; Staff Sgt. David Wyatt, 35; Sgt. Carson A. Holmquist; Lance Cpl. Squire D. “Skip” Wells, 21; and Navy Petty Officer 2nd Class Randall Smith, 26.

Other service members and a Chattanooga police officer also were wounded by Mohammad Youssef Abdulazeez, 24, a naturalized U.S. citizen, who was born in Kuwait. The attack was carried out at the Chattanooga Naval Reserve Center and a recruiting station a few miles away.

As previously reported, Abdulazeez called Muslims who waged jihad in earlier generations “the best human beings that ever lived” other than the prophets, on his blog. He also downloaded recordings of Anwar al-Awlaki, the American-Yemeni cleric who recruited for al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula until he was killed in a 2011 airstrike, according to a NBC News report.

a7ec2-abdulazeez990_0-e1437591480334

But there still is no assessment of whether the incident qualifies as international terrorism. Sharry Dedman-Beard, a spokeswoman for the U.S. attorney’s office in eastern Tennessee, said the investigation is ongoing and declined additional comment.

The issue is particularly sensitive in light of a similar attack this week in San Bernadino, California, that killed 14 people and wounded 21 more. It was carried out by a married couple, Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik. Malik, 27, was a Pakistani woman who entered the United States on a so-called “fiance visa.” She pledged allegiance to the Islamic State militant group on Facebook prior to the attack, a U.S. law enforcement official said on Friday.

The law enforcement official compared the San Bernadino case to the Chattanooga attack, noting that it took days for the FBI to sort out what happened and some questions still remain.

The Chattanooga shooting, occurring at military facilities, however, raised the possibility of Purple Heart medals being awarded to the families of the troops killed there and the survivors who were wounded. Under current criteria, however, the Chattanooga victims will not be eligible unless the government determines that Abdulazeez was in contact with a foreign terrorist organization beforehand and was “inspired or motivated by the foreign terrorist organization.”

chattanooga-terrorism

Military officials have proactively prepared Purple Heart nomination packages for the troops involved, said Maj. Rob Dolan, a Marine Corps spokesman in Quantico, Virginia. But the awards are still in limbo while the investigation remains open.

“Determination of eligibility still rests on the completion of the FBI investigation,” Dolan said.

The financial benefits of the Purple Heart can include the payment of hostile-fire pay for those killed or wounded in an attack, and special compensation for troops whose disability is attributed to an injury for which they were awarded the medal.

The issue has come up before. Earlier this year, then-Army Secretary John McHugh ordered the Purple Heart and associated benefits be awarded to the families of 13 people who were killed and more than 30 who were wounded in the 2009 mass shooting at Fort Hood, Texas.

The lack of Purple Hearts in that case had become a political issue, and required Congress to pass legislation that expanded eligibility by redefining an attack by a “foreign terrorist organization” to include an incident in which an attacker was in communication with a foreign terrorist organization or motivated by it, McHugh said in announcing the awards in July.

But they were quick to charge a Naval officer, who managed to shoot this Muslim terrorist, for illegally having his firearm on the property.

Shortly after the Chattanooga attack, a resolution was introduced in the House by Rep. Charles Fleischmann, R.-Tenn., to say that the service members wounded and killed meet the criteria for the Purple Heart and that Navy Secretary Ray Mabus should do so. It now has 86 co-sponsors and bipartisan support.

FALLEN ANGEL: An investigative documentary about the cover-up of the shootdown of SEAL TEAM 6 – the single largest loss in Navy SEAL history

extortion-17-biden-panetta

On Aug 5th 2011 22:09 UTC/Zulu Afghanistan, a United States Army National Guard aircrew was flying a Vietnam era Boeing Chinook CH47D transport helicopter call sign “Extortion 17.” The men on board were on a mission to “Capture or Kill”the Taliban commander Qari Tahir – in OPERATION: “Lefty Grove.”

In addition to the five man aircrew, twenty-five of America’s most elite warriors were on board:

15 – Navy Special Warfare Development Group (DevGru)
2 – Navy West Coast SEALs
5 – Top-tier Navy Servicemen (DevGru Support)
3 – Top-tier USAF Personnel (DevGru Support)
1 – Navy SEAL combat service dog (DevGru Support)

Plus, one Afghan civilian interpreter and seven members of the Afghan National Army.

To date, there has been no reasonable explanation or investigation as to how or why numerous security protocols and procedures were compromised when eight Afghans were rushed on board with in the last minutes before takeoff.

The only obscure information about these eight Afghan personnel was hidden deeply inside a 1250-page SECRET crash investigation never intended to be seen by the public. This SECRET document, now declassified, is referred to as the Colt Report and named after the one-star Infantry Division commander and lead crash investigator Jeffery M. Colt.

Our investigative movie, “Fallen Angel” will prove beyond reasonable doubt that this crash investigation was a blatant attempt to cover-up the government’s failed Rules of Engagement policy – a policy that is  killing America’s finest warriors today.

A summary of the government’s crash investigation, the Colt Report, is as follows:

  • Crash investigation was completed and finalized in 30 days

  • Eight Afghans were rushed on board in the last minutes

  • no evidence of either gunshot wounds or significant ballistic injury in any of the casualties” (No findings of Bullets in Bodies) 

  • Flight Data Recorder (Black Box) never found or recovered (Omitted from Final Report)

  • Final autopsy reports were not completed (Autopsy Reports Omitted from Final Report)

  • The shoot-down was not a deliberate ambush” 

  • Two, possibly three RPG shots fired 

  • Second RPG shot brought down Extortion 17  

  • Second shot came from RPG three and a half football fields away (220m)

  • Second RPG shot after midnight – 2:39:45 AM Afghanistan (22:09:45 GMT)

  • Shot occurred in “near-zero illumination conditions”

  • No Moon “0% Illumination” (set @ 9:32 PM Afghanistan)

  • Extortion 17 was “blacked out” (no beacons or markers) 

  • Enemy had “no night vision equipment” 

  • Extortion 17 was “flying at 60mph150 feet AGL [Above Ground Level] 

  • Second RPG shot struck the aft rotor blade “at 40 degree angle” 

  • Fatal shot did not come from the 3rd RPG shot at point blank range fired by a “Squirter” (Taliban soldier) 

  • Fatal shot did not come from “Squirters seen earlier” near the area where Extortion 17 was landing

  • Fatal shot absolutely did not come from “Squirters” seen earlier who were“denied permission” to be fired upon due to the Rules of Engagement

i12mnzdbdyuy1uz5arwv

The military claims the shoot-down was due to an unavoidable, “Lucky Shot.”

However, two days after the shoot-down, three highly respected European press agencies were reporting the shoot-down as a “Taliban Trap.”

One of the UK’s oldest, most trusted, and most circulated news source, The Telegraph stated two days after the shoot-down of SEAL Team Six, US helicopter ‘shot down in Taliban trap’”

Lt. Col. Allen West (Ret) “The Congress and the military need to lift the curtain of deceit.  Media hypocrisy is hiding this incident from the American people. This MUST be made into a film.”

Admiral ‘Ace’ Lyons (Ret): “Pure dereliction of duty and and un-American.” “High treason.”

WOO HOO! World War 11 Veterans get down and boogie at Reagan National Airport in Washington DC!

29351972_8099841_G_44297_ver1.0

A couple of World War II veterans showed they still know how to boogie (to the iconic ‘Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy’ song, of course) when they broke out in dance at a Washington, D.C. airport. 

FOX News (h/t Rae R) The men were in D.C. as part of an Honor Flight – a service that provides free flights to veterans so that they can tour all the war memorials in the nation’s capital. The two dancing vets, Marin Perryman and Paul Kopey, were being entertained by the Ladies of Liberty, a trio who were singing the famous Andrews Sisters’ World War II tune when they got up and put on a show of their own. The crowd loved it. And yes, the Greatest Generation is still the greatest.

Vendor on a Colorado Army post ordered to stop selling T-shirt with an anti-Islam message

FORT CARSON: The shirt depicted the Statue of Liberty wearing a head-to-toe burqa such as those worn by female Muslim supremacists with the words “Don’t let this happen in America.” (I want one!)

You can buy this T-shirt online here: MericaApparel

anti-islam+tshirt

Gazette  An anti-Islam T-shirt for sale at a kiosk outside Fort Carson’s post exchange was removed from shelves after its one day on display prompted (Muslim/Leftist?) complaints.

Army and Air Force Exchange Service spokesman Chris Ward said complaints led to a quick removal of the shirt and a counseling for the kiosk-operator whose contract forbids that kind of merchandise.

070114NewsBriefs1

Ward said the shirt was first stocked at the kiosk outside the main post exchange on Sunday and was removed Monday after a shopper complained to local managers. (ONLY one?)

“We don’t want anything offensive or unpatriotic,” Ward said. (Defending America from Islam IS patriotic, you moron. Islam is at war with us)

The T-shirt earned the ire of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation in New Mexico, which is run by Air Force Academy graduate Mikey Weinstein (anti-American/anti-Judeo-Christian atheist traitor who loves Islam).

ImageGen.ashx_ NNGuetU

“The juxtaposition of that shocking image and text message on that T-shirt epitomizes the wretched plight of prejudice and bigotry which innocent Muslim Americans all too often suffer while so honorably serving in today’s service branches,” the foundation wrote in a statement.

The exchange service, headquartered in Dallas, is a government-run retailer at military installations worldwide. 

Ward said store managers get their orders from Dallas rather than local commanders, and the leadership had nothing to do with the shirt’s appearance or its removal.

The U.S. Military is now sharia-complaint:

Traitor-in-Chief Barack Hussein Obama has shuffled the players in the Army to ensure that deserter Bowe Bergdahl will get NO JAIL TIME…NONE!

As reported by Fox News, “An Army officer is recommending that Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl face a lower-level court martial and be spared the possibility of jail time for leaving his post in Afghanistan.”

Bergdahl-charges-JPG

Bergdahl was captured [Bergdahl was NEVER captured, he was apprehended after he voluntarily walked away from his base camp and even asked directions from locals along the way on how to reach the Taliban] by the Taliban after leaving his post on June 30, 2009, and held until last year, when he was exchanged for five Taliban commanders. His commanding officers in Afghanistan say a 45-day search for Bergdahl put soldiers in danger (resulting in 6 deaths)

Military prosecutors charged Bergdahl in March with desertion and misbehavior before the enemy, a charge that could carry a maximum penalty of life imprisonment. But defense attorney Eugene Fidell said Lt. Col. Mark Visger has recommended that Sgt. Bergdahl’s case be referred to a special court martial, which is a misdemeanor-level forum. It limits the maximum punishment to reduction in rank, a bad-conduct discharge and a term of up to a year in prison.

wt060314a

Fidell also said that Visger recommended that there be no prison time or punitive discharge against Bergdahl.

According to Lt. Col. and former Congressman Allen West: If General Robert Abrams accepts the recommendation of LTC Visger, ladies and gents, you truly no longer have leadership in the U.S. Army. What you will have is a gathering of spineless lackeys who — for whatever reason — are intimidated by the Obama White House and the modern day Rasputin, Valerie Jarrett.

Bowe Bergdahl deserted his post in a combat zone; nothing else matters. There are no “mitigating factors” and there are no “highly discretionary matters.” That is just bovine excrement rhetoric used by someone who has no sense of duty, honor, or country. 

bowe-bergdahl-seen-hero-traitor-fellow-soldiers-737435-e1422382341479-1

The Article 32 officer should not have considered anything that happened post Bergdahl’s actions, since his desertion resulted in spending five years with the Taliban and Haqqani Network — a fate he deserved.

There was no poor command climate — Bergdahl deserted, and now this Article 32 officer believes this is just a misdemeanor. No, turning your back on your unit in a combat zone is clearly “misbehavior before the enemy.” Leaving your post without your weapon in a combat zone is desertion, not jaywalking.

His desertion resulted in 6 soldiers being killed while looking for him.

bowe-berghdahl-and-barack-obama-e14283832357281

There can be no doubt that there has been undue command influence at the highest levels in this case. This is why Bergdahl’s defense attorney was never concerned. He didn’t seek a “plea bargain” and allowed this to take its course. He knew very well there was no possibility the maximum punishment would ever happen — heck, there may be no punishment at all.

I want LTC Visger to tell me what “mitigating factors” and “highly discretionary matters” are at play in the case of Army Green Beret SFC Charles Martland who is about to be involuntarily separated from the Army for punching a child rapist. I don’t know what is happening in the U.S. Army but it is disgusting and despicable. 

Let me close by saying, if Bowe Bergdahl is rewarded for walking away before the enemy, what becomes the new definition of honor? I guess it’s all part of the fundamental transformation of our beloved Republic. And it just stinks!

Traitor-in-Chief Obama threatens to defund the military if he can’t give all of the most dangerous Muslim terrorists at Gitmo a get-out-of-jail card

111008_obamagitmo-viThe Fascist Obama Regime announced that Barack Hussein Obama would veto the defense authorization bill if Congress did not close down Guantanamo Bay prison for Muslim terrorists, including 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed.

CKAHNQnWUAECxrG

Breitbart  White House press secretary Josh Earnest explained that the House funding bill would be vetoed “principally because…of the irresponsible way that it funds our national defense priorities, but also because of the efforts to prevent the closure [of] the prison at Guantanamo Bay.” He added that Democrats would sustain Obama’s veto, and defense authorization would die.

Obama’s strong stand on Gitmo underscores two vital points. First, President Obama does not fear defunding America’s national security. Second, Obama does not fear Republicans in Congress.

CQwaC-fUEAASqdK

The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) has been authorized for five decades running. The current NDAA fully funds the military through a workaround measure, thanks to President Obama’s demands that a huge chunk of sequestration cuts come from defense funding. Now Democrats complain that the workaround measure isn’t good enough: Republicans should bust open the bank again.

But that’s not Obama’s main criticism of the NDAA. He has long had a bug in his ear with regard to Gitmo, which he feels has strengthened terrorists’ feelings about the evils of the United States. Given his recent moves to parlay with the Cuban dictatorship as well, Obama may want to hand Gitmo in totality back to the Cuban government.

The-Devils-Advocate

The fact that Obama would be willing to dramatically cut America’s military funding, even as Russia takes over Ukraine and Syria, as Iran gears up for a big regional military push, as China continues its aggressive behavior in the South China Sea, demonstrates Obama’s top priority is doing leftist work, not protecting the United States.

In fact, Obama’s choice to prioritize Gitmo above national security isn’t a choice at all: Obama wants America’s military slashed, and he wants Gitmo closed.

Terrorist1-Obama0

Obama believes that Republicans fear defense defunding more than he must – their constituents will hold them accountable, while he’s in pure “f*** it list” mode. He also thinks that Republicans are unwilling to undergo a head-to-head matchup with him under almost any circumstances.

Shutting down America’s defense funding would be a crowning achievement for a president who cares more about weakening America’s role in the world than defending her citizens.

Barack Hussein Obama gives the Islamofascists another reason to attack the Pentagon: Appoints openly gay man as Army chief

Can a transgender Navy chief be far behind? Eric Fanning, formerly one of Defense Secretary Ash Carter’s closest advisers, has been nominated to be the next Army secretary, the White House announced.

Eric Fanning

Eric Fanning

Army Times  Fanning has been serving as the acting under secretary of the Army since June. Before that, he served as Carter’s chief of staff. If confirmed by the Senate, Fanning will succeed Army Secretary John McHugh, who has said he will leave the post by Nov. 1 after six years on the job.

In addition to his long resume, Fanning would also mark a milestone if he does become the Army secretary, as the first openly gay secretary of a military branch.

Fanning’s nomination comes during a critical transition period for the Army, which has not only seen massive key leadership changes (as Obama has fired all the best officers who dared to stand up to him) at the top but also continues to struggle with increasingly tight budgets and growing demands for troops all around the world. (How about sending a battalion of openly gay soldiers to the Middle East?)

f656642ea9a70cd6e286623c3e9a6bbc

With the looming threat of even deeper cuts beginning Oct. 1 as a backdrop, the Army has already cut 80,000 soldiers from its active-duty force. Another 40,000 must go by the end of fiscal year 2018 for an eventual end-strength of 450,000. In fiscal 2016, which starts Oct. 1, the Army could be forced to cut an additional 30,000 soldiers.

After Muslim terrorist kills 4 unarmed Marines at Chattanooga recruiting office, Obama-directed policy will make stateside Marines sitting ducks

v10

Under the new Marine Corps policy for military facilities in U.S., Marines will NOT be allowed to be armed but will have to “shelter in place.” In other words, “run and hide” in case of attack.

2mpmln6vi-vi

MarineTimes  Marine officials have ruled out arming recruiters following this summer’s deadly shooting rampage in Tennessee that killed 4 Marines and 1 Sailor, but other security measures to protect troops are in the works, the head of Marine Corps Recruiting Command told Marine Corps Times.

Instead, the service will implement security measures that will allow Marines to take cover or evacuate in the event of an attack, he said. Changes being considered include more security cameras, remote-locking doors, and better ballistic protection, such as movable shields or desk partitions that could protect troops from bullets.

allenwesttweet

When a lone gunman opened fire on a Chattanooga Armed Forces recruiting office and a Navy Reserve center on July 16, some politicians were quick to call for military recruiters to be armed. But none of the military services (currently headed by Obama ‘yes-men’ only) are interested in arming recruiters, said Lt. Gen. Mark Brilakis, MCRC’s commanding general, during a Tuesday interview here.

“The arming piece is one of those things on the recruiting side that myself and [Commandant Gen. Joseph Dunford] still have great concerns over,” he said. “All the services … said they don’t want to arm their folks.” (Sure they did, after being threatened with forced retirement and loss of pensions)

And look how well this policy worked out at Ft. Hood

And look how well this policy worked out at Ft. Hood

The Marine Corps has worked hard to build strong relationships with members of the communities in which they recruit, Brilakis said. That isn’t something leaders want to jeopardize. (Yeah, who cares about jeopardizing the lives of  servicemen?)

“Whichever way you stand on the Second Amendment, recruiters showing up armed is not going to make either educators or parents comfortable.” (Better to be uncomfortable and alive than comfortable and dead?)

8f767-150717142821-4-marines-killed-chattanooga-shooting-identified-nr-00000000-large-169

Brilakis said Marine leaders realize the attack on the Chattanooga recruiting office could have been far worse. The shooter remained in his vehicle when firing at the recruiting office and didn’t try to enter the facility.

While bullet-proof glass at military recruiting offices was being considered in the wake of the attack, Brilakis said it has already been ruled out because of the immense costs associated with installation. (Of course, the Obama Regime has slashed the Military budget in order to fund even more illegal aliens and Muslim terrorists)

“We looked, and to put ballistic glass in in every one of the recruiting sites that we have — over a thousand — would be almost in excess of $100 million,” (Money that could be much better spent arming our Muslim enemies overseas, while bringing their families to America to live off welfare)
