Via Fox News:

The U.S. embassy in Uganda sent an emergency message this weekend to Americans inside the country, telling them to stay indoors because officials have uncovered a terror plot by the Al Qaeda-linked terror group al Shabab.

The Islamic extremist group has vowed to get revenge for U.S. air strikes last week that killing leader Ahmed Abdi Godane.

The embassy described the plot as “imminent” and said it was uncovered by Ugandan authorities. However, embassy officials acknowledged they are not aware of specific targets nor whether the Somali militants of al Shabab who plotted the attack are still at large.

Breaking>>> Former DHS Secretary: Al-Qaeda WMD Testing Lab Found in Afghanistan

Gateway Pundit

Former Secretary of Homeland Security under President George W. Bush, Michael Chertoff, was on The Kelly File last Thursday to discuss the threat of ISIS on the US homeland.

Chertoff told Megyn Kelly Al-Qaeda had been experimenting with WMD in Afghanistan labs.

“If we don’t eliminate the problem now it is only going to get worse. And, when we went into Afghanistan after 9-11 we found laboratories where Al-Qaeda was experimenting to try to come up with weapons of mass destruction. If we let ISIS build a state, build laboratories, sell oil and raise money, we’re going to be facing an enemy that is more formidable than we faced on 9-11.”

ISIS terrorists seized Saddam Hussein’s chemical weapons stockpile at the Al Muthanna facility in June.

Brother Rachid: A Message To President Obama From A Former Muslim

CFP

Brother Rachid, the son of a Moroccan imam, has posted a video called “A Message to President Obama From a Former Muslim” in which he attempts to give the President a crash course in Islamic studies. He begins by telling the president that he is wrong when he said that ISIL speaks for no religion. The former Muslim-turned-Christian further explains that terrorism begins in the schools and Mosques and must be cut off at the root.

“I can tell you with confidence that ISIL speaks for Islam. ISIL is a Muslim organization.”

I have had the opportunity and pleasure to meet several former Muslims in my lifetime and they make excellent and powerful Christians. It is a sometimes dangerous conversion as Islam calls for the death of all Muslims who leave the religion. Islam calls for the conversion, subjugation, or elimination of all peoples who fall under its control. Leaving the religion to join another is simply not an option in Islam and frequently leads to the death or imprisonment of those who decide that the teachings of Muhammad are not for them.

Politicians in particular insist that this is not a war of religion or clash of civilizations. We see an endless spewing of “religion of peace” quotes, diatribes on “a nation of immigrants,” and complaints about ethnic profiling at airports. I wish that someone would tell that to the enemy, for that is exactly the war that they are waging.

Is it really helpful to attempt to portray something as something it is not? Is it helpful to attempt to fool the public into believing something that is false or misleading? Are we to believe that there is in fact no direct link between the Islamic religion and terrorist atrocities?

Documents Reveal State Department Officials Told Three Months before Attack that Benghazi Security Guards Abandoning Posts Out of Fear for Safety

Judicial Watch

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch announced today that it has obtained 130 pages of new State Department documents revealing that local security guards working for Blue Mountain Group (BMG), the firm hired to protect the U.S. Special Mission in Benghazi, repeatedly abandoned their posts “out of fear of their safety” in the months leading up to the deadly terrorist attack on the special mission compound.

The documents were obtained by Judicial Watch pursuant to a February 25, 2013, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of State (No. 13-00243)) seeking the following information:

“Any and all records regarding, concerning, or related to the $387,413.68 contract awarded by the Department of State to an unidentified foreign awardee for “Security Guards and Patrol Services.” According to the record of this expenditure on USASpending.gov, the contract was signed on February 17, 2012 and May 3, 2012, and is identified by Award ID SAQMMA12C0092.”

According to the documents, on June 30, 2012, three months before the Benghazi terrorist attack, a Quality Assurance Compliance Report  from Blue Mountain Libya to Department of State Contract Specialist Neal Kern warned that the number of local security guards leaving their posts had put the U.S. Benghazi Mission at risk:

Obama’s speech strategy: open with your biggest lie

American Thinker

Over the past several weeks, there’s been a plethora of discussion over Obama’s “strategy” vis-à-vis ISIS (aka ISIL), whether he actually had a strategy and, if so, what it might be.

Well, he certainly had a strategy for the speech he gave last night. Like an entertainer who opens his act with his biggest number, Obama’s strategy was to open his speech with the most blatant, brazen, bald-faced lie imaginable.

It had me livid within the first few minutes of his speech, when he had the colossal gall to state, “First of all, ISIL is not Islamic. No religion condones the killing of innocents.”

“Really?” I found myself yelling at the radio. “What other planet are you on? What other universe or dimension do you inhabit? Have you ever read the ‘most holy Koran’?”

Please! Enough of this “religion of peace” malarkey already!

(This is a drastically cleaned-up version of what I found myself yelling at the radio; I found myself using a great number of intensifying gerunds as my blood pressure soared sky-high.)

It is precisely the fact that the Koran not only condones the killing of innocents but encourages it, Nay, demands it, that distinguishes Islam from all the other religions of the world, and reveals it as something other than a religion; it exposes Islam as a socio-political construct masquerading as a religion.

Surah 9:29 of the Koran, for instance:

“Fight those who do not believe in Allah or in the Last Day and who do not consider unlawful what Allah and His Messenger have made unlawful and who do not adopt the religion of truth from those who were given the Scripture – [fight] until they give the jizyah willingly while they are humbled.”

As the Investigative Project on Terrorism points out, ISIS is devoutly following this Koranic injunction:

Christians have become subject to the jizyah, or poll tax, since IS seized Raqqa in Syria earlier this year and Mosul in Iraq earlier this summer. Those subject to the jizyah face death if they refuse to pay or convert to Islam. IS similarly cited the Islamic law book known as “Reliance of the Traveler” to justify killing Yazidis and requiring them to convert to its brand of Islam to be spared.

Even the phrase “the killing of innocents” doesn’t adequately reflect the mindset of Islam’s “holy book”. Islam’s quest for world domination by force is driven by the wholesale slaughter of innocents. It informs its adherents that Allah smiles on the wholesale slaughter of innocents, and that the more innocents sent to their doom, the more favor Muslims will curry with their “god”.

Of course, by Islamic “logic”, there are no “innocents”; they are all guilty, guilty of being “infidels”, and they are worthy only of conversion, enslavement, dhimmitude or death, with death being the preferred outcome (and usually delivered in the most violent, barbaric, bloodthirsty, gory, inhuman and diabolical means imaginable).

The fact that fellow Muslims are enslaved, mutilated and slain with the very same demonic glee proves nothing; even those slain (presumably for not being “Muslim enough”) held in their heart of hearts the same view of “the infidel”.

This is the very core of Islam; not “radical Islam”, not “fundamentalist Islam”, but Islam per se. It’s not a “perversion” of Islam; it’s not Islam that has been “hijacked”; it is intrinsic to Islam, and always has been.

Anyone who says otherwise is simply not paying attention, is willfully turning a blind eye to the obvious, or is complicit in furthering Islam’s  murderous agenda. It certainly indicates a total ignorance of Islam’s history, which chronicles Islam’s mission of world domination by force that has been an integral part of this so-called “religion” since its very inception.

It really didn’t matter to me what other lies Obama perpetrated in the remainder of his speech (I’ll leave it to others to deconstruct and expose his other falsehoods, like his doubletalk about Syria); I might have even said to myself, “At this point, what difference does it make?”

Obama must have figured (and perhaps rightly so, given the already dumbed-down state of so much of the American populace, thanks in part to a half-century of relentless propaganda and undermining of the educational system) that if the people would swallow that first shameless, unabashed lie, they’d swallow anything. Sadly, and tragically for our once-great nation, I fear that he was right.
