The Clinton/Obama Benghazi scandal is not over. Not by a long shot.
Last week we released 54 pages of State Department documents, including a transcript of a September 12, 2012, telephone conference call with congressional staffers in which then-Under Secretary of State for Management Patrick Kennedy admitted that the deadly terrorist assault on the Benghazi Consulate was not “under cover of protest,” but was, in fact, “a direct breaching attack.”

An ISIS suicide bomber in Iraq who detonated a truck bomb at an army base outside Mosul has been identified as a British citizen who was held at the U.S. detention center in Guantanamo, Cuba.
Ronald Fiddler, also known as Jamal al-Harith after he converted to Islam in the 1990s, was captured in a Taliban prison in 2002. He was suspected of having links to Osama bin Laden and was transferred to Guantanamo.
Al-Harith claimed he was mistreated at the prison camp and that British agents were complicit. He was transferred back to the U.K. in 2004 and was awarded a million pounds in compensation.
He was announced as a suicide bomber who targeted coalition forces outside Mosul this week when ISIS released a picture of him smiling in a 4×4 that was seen in video footage speeding down a track. ISIS claimed Harith caused multiple casualties, according to the Times of London.
Harith, 50, traveled to Syria to join the Islamic State, also known as ISIS and ISIL, in 2014, raising fears that the money given to him had been passed on to ISIS. He was known to fellow militants as Abu-Zakariya al-Britani.
Harith, who was accused of having links to Osama bin Laden, was held in Guantanamo Bay without charge for two years after he was discovered in a Taliban prison in Afghanistan in 2001, the Times of London reported.
Manchester-born Harith’s brother Leon Jameson told the newspaper that his brother “wasted his life.”
“It is him, I can tell by his smile,” he said of the ISIS image. “If it is true then I’ve lost a brother, so another family (member) gone.”
Memo to ISIS: Make sure you send a thank-you note to the British government. A million pounds buys a lot of bombs to kill innocent civilians

The Washington Free Beacon
Senior Iranian officials are warning the Trump administration about disclosing secret deals related to the nuclear deal that have long been hidden from the public by the Obama administration, according to recent comments that prompted pushback from senior sources on Capitol Hill.
Iran’s warning comes on the heels of a Washington Free Beacon report disclosing that former national security adviser Michael Flynn had been pushed out of office partly due to his intention to release these sensitive documents to the American public.
Leading lawmakers in Congress launched multiple investigations last year into the Obama administration’s efforts to keep these documents secret and out of public view. Sources who spoke to the Free Beacon about the matter said that the Trump White House is working on ways to publicize this information despite warnings from Iran.
Secret side deals related to the nuclear agreement remain unclassified but have been stashed in a secure location on Capitol Hill, making it difficult for staffers and lawmakers to view them. Individuals seeking to view these documents must have security clearance and are barred from taking notes or speaking about what they see.

State Department documents released through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed by the government watchdog Judicial Watch reveal, contrary to Obama administration claims, the State Department knew as early as Sept. 12, 2012 that the Sept. 11, 2012 attack on the U.S. compound in Benghazi, Libya was a “direct breaching attack.” It was not sparked “under the cover of a protest” or in response to an anti-Islamic YouTube video.
Commenting on one specific document, a Sept. 12, 2012 email summary of a conversation between then-Undersecretary of State for Management Patrick Kennedy with congressional staffers, Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said, “This document removes any further doubt that the State Department and the Obama administration knew immediately after the assault on Benghazi that it was a well-orchestrated terrorist attack and not a ‘spontaneous demonstration’ over a ‘hateful video,’ as the Obama administration repeatedly claimed.”
“These documents show that the Benghazi scandal is not over … not by a long shot,” said Fitton.
SECURE FREEDOM MINUTE
The next, necessary step in the national security course-correction President Donald Trump has promised requires the designation of the Muslim Brotherhood as what it is – a terrorist organization.
For years, presidents of both parties have labored under the illusion that the Brothers were actually useful and reliable “partners” in countering what was euphemistically known as “violent extremism.” Among other things, that epic strategic mistake prompted President Obama to work with the Muslim Brotherhood to supplant friendly governments across the Middle East.
President Trump’s predecessors also legitimated and enabled the Brotherhood’s operatives here. Yet, they are Sharia-supremacists, who share completely the ideology and agenda of terrorist organizations like al Qaeda, the Islamic State and Boko Haram.
Mr. Trump’s oath of office requires him to defend our Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. To do so, he must designate the terrorist Muslim Brotherhood.

Irresponsible incendiary rhetoric spewed by politicians and members of the media, in reaction to the executive order signed by President Trump to temporarily suspend the entry into the U.S. of aliens from a limited number of countries that are associated with terrorism, whether they had been issued visas, has fired up throngs of demonstrators in New York City and elsewhere.
President Trump began his executive order by noting how failures of the immigration system enabled terrorists to carry out the murder of 3,000 innocent people in the United States on 9/11.
The 9/11 Commission was crystal clear about the ways that failures of the immigration system enabled not only the 9/11 terrorists, but others, to enter the United States and embed themselves as they went about their deadly preparation. We have seen similar attacks in the years since as I noted in my article, “Reflections On 9/11’S Vulernabilities.”
The report, “9/11 and Terrorist Travel – Staff Report of the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States.” began with this first paragraph:
As you know, Donald Trump issued a temporary suspension of immigration and travel for the seven countries that obama compiled and was voted into law by democrats. Although it is clearly spelled out as temporary suspension and it is clearly not a religious ban (the 400 million Muslims in Indonesia, Malaysia and Pakistan are excluded for some reason) democrats persist spreading fake news.

Trump’s travel/immigration really doesn’t bother many, outside of liberals, CAIR and ISIS supporters. Shireen Qudosi argues that many Muslims tend to support the suspension:
