Tragedies matter, and when they're preventable, they matter even more. Two somber anniversaries are marked on Wednesday, commemorating days that Americans wish they could forget. It has been 12 years since the attacks on the twin towers, the Pentagon and in western Pennsylvania that together claimed nearly 3,000 lives. It was only a year ago that four Americans, including an ambassador, died when Islamic terrorists overran the U.S. diplomatic consulate in Benghazi, Libya.
September brings a change in seasons and a chance to remember. A dozen years have passed since the day the twin towers fell, but we never look at a bright-blue, clear September sky quite the same way, and certainly each September 11 anniversary gives us pause. With so much global agony, including conflict in Syria and throughout the Middle East, this is a good time to remind ourselves about the value of our diplomacy, particularly public diplomacy, and to remember those working overseas so that we can feel secure at home. Let's not get lulled into a false sense of security or dare to forget those who are keeping us safe.
Syria may be in chaos, and the international community may be floundering for the proper response to the regime's chemical weapons attack outside Damascus, but President Bashar Assad is celebrating — his birthday, that is.
While federal lawmakers from both parties remember the 12th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, Republicans also point to lingering questions from the attack on a U.S. consulate in Libya one year ago.
Our military personnel are used as background props for President Obama's speeches, but they have not been given fair treatment or support. The delay in the Afghanistan surge, the early troop withdrawals and the rules of engagement cost many lives and injuries to our military personnel.
The White House on Tuesday night used a statement on Sept. 11 "preparedness and security" to pledge to bring to justice those behind last year's attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, which claimed the lives of four Americans, including the U.S. ambassador to Libya, and touched off a political firestorm at home.
There has been little public testimony from the American personnel in Benghazi, Libya, on exactly what happened as extremists attacked them on Sept. 11, 2012. Did they make calls for help and, if so, what did the U.S. military tell them?
One of the many leftist, subversive mentors of President Obama was the Chicago-based American communist Saul Alinsky. Alinsky's methods can be summed up simply: Deceive and manipulate in order to confuse and radically transform. That's what this president is doing now.
EXCLUSIVE — As President Obama ran to election victory last fall with claims that al Qaeda was “decimated” and “on the run,” his intelligence team was privately offering an assessment that the terror network was shifting resources to emerging spinoff groups in Africa that posed fresh threats.
