MALMO MAYOR ILMAR REEPALU DEMONSTRATES HOW
HE PLANS TO STRANGLE THE LAST JOOOO LEFT IN TOWN.
Your calendar may say 2010, but in the Swedish town of Malmo, it is 5 minutes to Kristalnacht 1938. Jews are fleeing the city in droves, while thuggish mayor Ilmar Reepalu cynically uses immigrant Muslim brutes as lumpen Brown Shirts to terrorize the few who remain:
Violent anti-Semitism has become increasingly commonplace in Sweden’s southern city of Malmö, leading many Jewish residents to leave out of fear for their safety. “Threats against Jews have increased steadily in Malmö in recent years and many young Jewish families are choosing to leave the city,” said Fredrik Sieradzki of the Jewish Community of Malmö.
Last year, 79 crimes against Jewish residents were reported to the Malmö police, roughly double the number reported in 2008. In addition, Jewish cemeteries and synagogues have been repeatedly defaced with anti-Semitic graffiti, and a chapel at another Jewish burial site in Malmö was firebombed last January during Operation Cast Lead in Gaza. Many Jewish residents of Malmö feel that local anti-Jewish sentiment is linked with negative attitudes towards Israel...
Sieradzki says that the attitudes of Malmö politicians, especially Social Democrat city council chair Ilmar Reepalu, have allowed anti-Semitism to fester. “He’s demonstrated extreme ignorance when it comes to our problems,” Sieradzki explained. “It’s shameful and regrettable that such a powerful politician could be so ignorant about the threats we face.
Consider that just in the past year:
1) While the IDF was striking Hamas in Gaza, bombs, rockets, bottles and rocks were hurled at Jews in Malmo by Muslim mobs--Reepalu did nothing.
2) Israel's tennis team was forced to play their March 2009 Davis Cup matches in an empty stadium in Malmo, since Mayor Reepalu couldn't "guarantee the safety" of the filthy Zionists if his faithful jihadi servants were allowed to buy tickets. Of course, the Muslim thugs did the next best thing by rioting outside the stadium, and roaring out the all-time favorite jihadi chant, "The army of Muhammed will kill the Jews." (note the pacifist polizei response, don't want to make Muslim rioters upset, do we? )
3) Now Reepalu has gone out to openly condone these outrages in modern Europe: When gently questioned by a reporter from Skansen.se about the flight of the Jooooos from Malmo, he blames...the people fleeing: "I wish that the Jewish community had distanced itself from Israel's violations of the civilian population in Gaza. Instead, they chose to hold a demonstration of support in the town square, which may have sent the wrong signals." (H/T Tundra Tabloids!)
Just like those damned Czechs used to lord it over the Chermans in the Sudetenland...Of course those Arab lads had to fire-bomb the demo!
Yes, folks, step right up and meet the New Europe...same as the Old Europe.
Tundra Tabloids.......: MAYOR OF MALMÖ SWEDEN CONJURS UP OLD ZIONISM IS RACISM CANARD.......

An amazing first-hand report from an IDF soldier in Haiti, in case we needed anything more inspirational than the heart-breaking videos we've seen from there.

Brother John Jay at "Winter Soldier, Summer Patriot," has just posted a superb series of articles eviscerating the latest Eurabian suicide attempt via Muslim mass immigration, here. John is a freedom fighter of the first order, and a relentless analyst, not to mention an always-willing advisor on the best way to use a personal firearm (in self-defense, of course. Of course!)

But, hey, I'm sure it's just a devious plot for Israel to get the inside track on exploiting all those natural resources that Haiti is bursting with...

The Democrap spin on this is that it was an accident, Meehan tried to help him up, McCormack has no hard feelings...Bullsh!t.
"Let's go to the tape." The figures are hard to pick apart, but look at .02-.03 at the figure in the middle with his right hand up (for his microphone or tape recorder)--that is McCormack. He is the one speaking out loud to Croakley, who is blocked to us, but off to the right.
Croakley, remember, is the Chief Law Enforcement Officer ("Attorney General") of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
Notice at .03-.05, a larger figure (Meehan) to the right of McCormack starts edging toward him, shunting him to the left. AT .05-.06, YOU CAN CLEARLY SEE THIS FIGURE SHOVE MCCORMACK HARD WITH HIS LEFT ARM. (battery #1) Because there are some steel separators on the sidewalk, McCormack falls over one of them (.07)(had McCormack suffered a serious injury, this could have been AGGRAVATED BATTERY, a felony).
You see the large shover then pretend to help McCormack up, but notice he is constantly holding McCormack, then moving himself in McCormack's way as McCormack continues to try to follow Croakley. This belies Meehan's preposterous excuse that he was "trying to help him up, make sure he wasn't hurt," please pass the barf bag. At .15, Meehan grabs McCormack to stop him from continuing (battery #2, assuming we give Meehan a pass for the "helpful holding" a few seconds earlier).

My gaaawwwwwd, Stuart Schwartz posted an awesome piece here at the American Thinker (h/t to Larwyn the Great) demolishing that faux intellectual par excellence, David Brooks, the NYT's faithful "conservative" butler. Every sentence of Mr. Schwartz's article shimmers with insights, and the effect is something like a fight in the Batman show: "POW!! SOCK!! KABOOOM!" And by the end all that is left are Davey-boy's shoes, with smoke wisping out of them.
Further, Brooks' "History" degree from UofC couldn't manage to grant him the knowledge of this Nation, or its Founding Principles that is grasped almost innately by the so-called "UN-Educated" that Brooks disdains. In short, David Brooks is merely your totally average, unimportant, eminently forgettable, oh-so-typical arrogant leftist jackass.
Brooks is the poster boy for intellectual idiots.
I'm sure some twit like Brooks would consider himself the intellectual superior to someone like my father simply because my father lives in a rural part of the country. However, my dad was on the Apollo launch team and has works on the Library of Congress. I would love to see the two have a conversation. Brooks would be shown as the fake intellectual "elite" that he is. We don't have kings here in the US, and we don't have an "elite" anything. As an educated, thinking US citizen, I reject the idea entirely, and so do most Americans except partisan toadies and deluded halfwits.
But it seems to me that the sad joke is on David Brooks; he is a token, a punk and a shoe shine boy for the Liberal intellectual elite. Like the character in Goodfellas, he is Spider at the Liberal card game. No one respects him. He is an outsider waiting at a table of gangsters. He exists only to serve their whims. He is simply a mildly amusing object of abuse and ridicule.
Is this the guy who divined that Obama would be a great president based on the crease in his pant leg?
Brooks is a putz. He is a faux intellectual without critical thinking skills and so pathologically dishonest that he may actually beleive he is a conservative. I have known conservative intellectuals and David you are no conservative intellectual you are a self deluded moron
The "educated class" has reached a point of such complete ignorance and irrelevance that they are to be laughed at. I know that we have to take them seriously because for now they do control the power in Washington, and they still have their large, albeit shrinking microphones, and they are doing real damage to our country, but I feel that we true conservatives are resurgent.
The MSM for me is no more intellectual than the magazines my 12 year old reads: Twist, J-14, Tiger Beat. These tween magazines provide nonstop glorification of the current tween idols. How is that different from the New York Times and the broadcast networks' coverage of Obama? How?
David Brooks, trying to be original, instead just looks like just another "wizard of smart." What a vapid, entirely disposable dope!
Who cares about this grinning, smarmy, effeminate NYSlimes manipulator? A little bit of brooks goes a long way. Best he stay in his gun-free crime-riddled urban gulags that he and his fellow swells so love.
The real America might make him uncomfortable and his mascara might run.
The American "education" system is run by the "educated" class. Small wonder America has to import so many "skilled" workers. In the U.S., math and science have been "affirmatively" cast aside in favour of more touchy-feely curricula...like contemplating babbling Brooks.
Only the highly intelligent can look at a pants crease and judge leadership and character....Gee, I wish I were so darned smart!
Brooks is a typical Washington Beltway Elitist. He has become a liberal loon living in his mansion looking down on us peons. He thinks we not his equal and don't know what's good for us. So, he the Lord of the Manor tells us to stay in our huts and gratefully accept the handouts from the loons and elites.
The whole Obama administration is made up of tax cheats, liars, radicals, socialists, thugs and incompetent boobs. Perhaps Brooks can find the time to investigate them and report it to us the peons paying the bill.
To paraphrase an old saying, "Sometimes it is better to keep your mouth shut and let people wonder if you are dumb than it is to say something and remove all doubt." Ever since the pants-leg-crease comment, David Brooks seems intent on removing all doubt from the minds of anybody paying even the least attention.
I've had it up to well past my eyebrows with all these "smart people" who could not see Zer0 for the anti-American Marxist thugocrat he was when we all knew it eighteen months ago. Zer0 spouts the standard liberal line of propaganda better than anybody we have heard in years but this is not "intellectualism". It's a pack of lies. Believing a pack of lies after millenia of proven failures is not even "smart". It may be hopelessly optimistic but that bears no resemblance to intelligence.
We have some of the dumbest smart people on Earth and David Brooks would qualify as their leader.
Intellectuals "R" Us? Idiots "R" Us is more like it. This pompous pantywaist is as left as they come & he's got plenty of company. David Frum, Kathleen Parker, Peggy Noonan, Michael Smerconish, Joe Scarborough, etc. These "cocktail set" Republicans are pathetic & should be ignored by intelligent Americans. All pushed Obungler on the American people during the 2008 Presidential election after guzzling the Kool-Aide & are complicit it in the dismantling of the U.S. Constitution currently being undertaken by Obungler & the Democrats in Congress. Brooks is laughable as a columnist & brain dead as a thinker.
"You Can Lead Liberals & RINOs To Knowledge, But You Can't Make Them Think!" – ME
Brooks can't be very bright if he thinks he's a conservative.
Who is really surprised that David Brooks is having a hissy fit - he's a boob and moroon. Just as an aside, isn’t it these intellectual elitists (i.e. Geithner, BHO, Ayers) that have brought us to this point – enough said.

Here is the type of story that we NEVER hear the lamestream media report about from Iraq now, nor did we hear about them in the past. My apologies for not keeping up, I will endeavor to do better in the future:
BAGHDAD — One-year-old Noor Hassam Oudah, known as "Baby Nourah," was born blind with congenital cataracts. The condition is reversible with surgery, but out of reach for her family here, as the city's hospitals lack the facilities and physicians to perform such a procedure.
Upon hearing of her plight some months ago, Soldiers with Troop C, 150th Armored Reconnaissance Squadron, 30th Heavy Brigade Combat Team, jumped into action to try and help her.
According to 1st Lt. Jason Hickman, a platoon leader in Troop C, it seemed as if things fell into place right from the start. He said it was a perfect example of divine intervention, as his convoy made a wrong turn five months ago, ending up in Zwaynat, a small village southwest of Baghdad.
Baby Nourah was there visiting with her uncle, Muhameed Gharbi Sultan, who spoke with Hickman, informing him of the baby's plight.
"So there we were at a place we hadn't intended on being," said Hickman. "Wrong turn, perhaps, but that's not how I see it. My interest and contacts with the Order of Saint John [charity organization], the wrong turn, her being there with her uncle instead of with her parents in Baghdad, no, not a coincidence."
According to their website, the Order of St. John is a major international charity, accredited to the United Nations, whose organizations provide first aid, health care and support services in over 40 countries around the world. The Order's charitable work is carried out by the St John Eye Hospital in Jerusalem. The Order of St John traces its origins back 900 years to the Knights Hospitaller from whom St John today derives its inspiration and maxims – Pro Fide Pro Utilitate Hominum, 'For the Faith and in the Service of Humanity.'
"I don't believe in the traditional sense of the word destiny, but I do believe that God puts people in certain places at certain times," said Hickman. "Things don't happen solely by coincidence. All you have to do is look for the road signs.
"The signs were clear; so I sent some emails and that's how we arrived here," he said.
Once Nourah was diagnosed, Hickman emailed St. John's Jerusalem Eye Hospital, the main provider of eye care in the West Bank, Gaza and East Jerusalem, a cause he has contributed to in the past.
Through contact with Ruth Ann Skaff, the U.S. Executive Director of the Priory of St John's, Hickman was referred to Dr. Mehyar, of the Khalidi Medical Center in Amman, Jordan, where the procedure was performed.
They created a plan for Nourah, and Hickman emailed his family and asked for donations from Soldiers of the brigade. Family and friends from his hometown of Greenville, W. Va., Belmont, W. Va., where he grew up, and St. Marys, W.Va., were the main contributors of the $5,000 needed to help Baby Nourah.
From that point on he was determined to help her, as even in his darkest hour Hickman said he thought of Nourah.
"Lieutenant Hickman's father passed away as we were working out all the details for Nourah," said Staff Sgt. Travers Brake, of Elkins, W. Va., who took over the campaign while Hickman was on emergency leave. "He asked for the guys in the platoon to give donations to Nourah in lieu of sending flowers. Now that's special."
Hickman’s unit was invited to a small celebration, Dec. 9, hosted by Baby Nourah’s family in appreciation for setting up and covering expenses for the baby’s eye surgery, Nov. 15, three days after her first birthday.
During the celebration, Hickman, who didn't get to see Nourah immediately following her surgery, finally was able to hold the baby he introduced to the brigade and a lot of caring people back in West Virginia.
Dressed in a plush pink puppy dog snow suit, accessorized with a yellow and pink hat and little yellow rimmed glasses, Baby Nourah made her rounds at the celebration, oblivious to her stardom. She looked around, waved and stared at some of the people instrumental in giving her such a special gift.
Nourah's paternal grandfather, Oudah Ghardi Sultan al-Jubori, said she has to go back for a checkup in a month and she has to wear glasses for five years; a small sacrifice for a lifetime of imagery.
"We are very grateful to you," said Jubori. "At one time [Iraqi's and U.S. Soldiers] could not sit and talk like this [without wearing armored vest and helmets], now we are very close. You should visit more. Please come back and visit before you go back to the States."
Hickman, Brake and the elders of Nourah's family shared a traditional Iraqi meal together, drank tea and talked late into the evening; laughing and joking like old-time acquaintances.
Since the operation, family members said she crawls, grabs for things and follows hands, fingers and objects that are placed in front of her. Baby Nourah, with her big pouty cheeks and little cherry lips, now quietly absorbs her surroundings and responds at will.
"The Lord may not push you around the board like a pawn, but every now and again he puts you where he wants you," said Hickman. "We were supposed to end up in Zwaynat that night; it was just up to us what we were going to do when we got there."

If they had a shred of conscience, they'd all just blow their own brains out, and drastically improve the moral climate of the planet Earth.
Another great article from Israel National News:
A breakthrough in the research of the Hebrew Scriptures has shed new light on the period in which the Bible books of the Prophets were written. Professor Gershon Galil of the Department of Biblical Studies at the University of Haifa has deciphered an inscription dating from the 10th century BCE (the period of King David’s reign) and has proven the inscription to be ancient Hebrew, thus making it the earliest known example of Hebrew writing.
The significance of this breakthrough relates to the fact that at least some of the Biblical scriptures are now proven to have been composed hundreds of years before the dates presented today in research and that the Kingdom of Israel already existed at that time.
The inscription itself, which was written in ink on a 15x16.5cm trapezoid pottery shard, was discovered a year and a half ago at excavations that were carried out by Professor Yosef Garfinkel near the Elah valley, south of Jerusalem, and west of Hevron.
The researchers dated the inscription back to the 10th century BCE, which was the period of King David’s reign...
The contents of the text express social sensitivity to the fragile position of weaker members of society and the inscription testifies to the presence of strangers within the Israeli society as far back as this ancient period, calling on native Hebrews to provide support for these strangers. It advocates care for widows and orphans and encourages the king – who at that time had the responsibility of curbing social inequality – to be involved in improving Israeli society. This inscription is similar in its content to Biblical scriptures (Isaiah 1:17, Psalms 72:3, Exodus 23:3, and others), but according to Galil it is not copied from any Biblical text.
The deciphered text:
1' you shall not do [it], but worship the [Lord].
2' Judge the sla[ve] and the wid[ow] / Judge the orph[an]
3' [and] the stranger. [Pl]ead for the infant / plead for the po[or and]
4' the widow. Rehabilitate [the poor] at the hands of the king.
5' Protect the po[or and] the slave / [supp]ort the stranger.
Notice the striking language of concern for such unlikely figures as "the poor...the slave...the stranger." Compare and contrast this instruction from 1000 years B.C.E. with how a certain much later religion instructs its adherents to treat the "the kuffar."
They find relics like this in Israel every single day, yet so many people act as if the Jews are intruders in a land that never even saw an Arabian until one thousand seven hundred years after this text was written.

We read in Exodus that God himself hardened the heart of Pharaoh against releasing the Hebrew slaves, in order that his ultimate defeat would be that much more crushing. In the modern era, it appears that God is hardening the heart of the Prime Minister of Israel, to the point of self-destructive madness.
The Judean home pictured above, built by the Ben David family 2 years ago, was destroyed by Israeli insecurity forces in November. The Ben Davids replaced it with a mobile home a few weeks ago. The result?
Police swarmed down on the Ben-David family home in Negohot, in southern Judea, in the wee hours of Monday morning, forced out the parents and six small children, and wrecked their home for the second time in several weeks.
"They cut the electricity and told us to move out,” Yehudit Ben-David told Israel National News. She said that she asked for a flashlight in order to wake up the children and dress them for the cold nighttime temperatures. Instead, the police barged in and began moving the little furniture that was in the wooden home before a bulldozer, belonging to an Arab, leveled the home - as well as two others.
The Ben-Davids, a founding family of Negohot, had built the small wooden home in the same place where police destroyed their former home, which was built with their life-savings. They began moving into their new home several days ago.
Yehudit explained that her family returned to the same site to rebuild, despite fears that police would demolish it, because the land, where they tend a vineyard, belongs to Jews. Two other wooden buildings, one belonging to another family, and a tent also were demolished .
With "leadership" like this (this makes at least 7 consecutive Israeli governments going back to 1990 that have been sub-pathetic), it is increasingly clear that the only reason Israel survives today is that God wants it to. 'Cause it sure isn't because of wise decisions and actions by its governments.
Righteous Knesset Member Arieh Eldad voiced the only appropriate reaction to this outrage, though in referring to Defense Minister and professional Israel-weakener Ehud Barak, he needlessly exonerated Netanyahu: “Defense Minister [Ehud Barak], who lives in his lofty penthouse, apparently has no moral problem with ordering the police to expel a family with six children from their home in the name of the law.”
[Eldad] emphasized that an illegal foreign worker recently was discovered working in Barak's home and that he has used government money to stay at expensive hotels in Paris that cost more than $1,000 a night. “Barak has nothing to teach the people of Israel about upholding the law,” according to MK Eldad. "When accounts are settled we will remember his despicable actions at Negohot.”

In honor of the approaching mid-20's temperatures here in central Florida, here is a legendary paean to the loveliness of our winter wonderlands, especially in the era of "global warming"[warning--profanity alert!]:
Diary of a New Maine Resident
Moved to our new home in Maine. It is so beautiful here. The mountains are so majestic. I have a beautiful old oak tree in my front yard. Can hardly wait to see the change in the seasons. This is truly God's Country.
Maine is such a gorgeous place to live, one of the real special places on Earth. The leaves are turning a multitude of different colors. I love all of the shades of reds, oranges and yellows, they are so bright. Went for a ride through the beautiful mountains and saw some deer. They are so graceful. Certainly they are the most wonderful animals on earth. This must be paradise, I love it here.
Deer season opens this week. I can't imagine why anyone would want to shoot these elegant animals. They are the very symbol of peace and tranquility here in Maine . I hope it snows soon. I love it here!
It snowed last night. I woke to a most wonderful sight: everything covered in a beautiful blanket of white. The oak tree is magnificent. It looks like a postcard. We went out and swept the snow from the steps and driveway. The air is so crisp, clean and refreshing. We had a snowball fight (I won), and the snowplow came down the street. He must have gotten too close to the driveway because we had to go out and shovel the end of the driveway again. What a beautiful place. Nature in harmony. I love it here!
More snow last night. I love it! The plow did his cute little trick again. What a rascal. A winter wonderland. I love it here!
More snow last night. Couldn't get out of the driveway to get to work. I'm exhausted from shoveling. Fucking snowplow.
More of that white shit coming down. I've got blisters on my hands and a kink in my back. I think that the snowplow driver waits around the corner until I'm done shoveling the driveway. Asshole.
White Christmas? More freakin' snow. If I ever get my hands on the sonofabitch who drives that snowplow, I swear I'll castrate him. And why don't they use more salt on these roads to melt the fucking ice??
More white shit last night. Been inside for three days except for shoveling out the driveway after that snowplow goes by every time. Can't go anywhere- cars stuck in a mountain of white shit. The weatherman says to expect another 10" of the shit again tonight. Do you know how many shovelfuls 10 inches of snow is?
The fucking weatherman was wrong. We got 34" of that white shit this time. The snowplow got stuck up in the road and that bastard actually had the balls to come to the door and ask to borrow my shovel. After I told him I'd broken six shovels already shoveling all the shit he pushed into the driveway, I broke my last one over his fucking head.
Finally got out of the house today. Went to the store to get food and on the way back, damned deer ran in front of me and I hit it. Did about $3000.00 damage to the car. Those fucking beasts should be killed. Wish the hunters had killed them all last November.
Warmed up a little and rained today. The rain turned the snow into ice and the weight of it broke the main limb of the oak tree in the front yard and it went through the roof. I should have cut that old piece of shit into fireplace wood when I had the chance.
Took the car to garage in town. Would you believe the thing is rusting out from that fucking salt they put all over the roads. Car looks like a bashed up, heap of rusted cow shit.
Sold the car, the house, and moved to Florida . I can't imagine why anyone in their freakin' mind would ever want to live in the Godforsaken state of Maine.

Nice to see that the CIA's Wilson/Plame/"Iran's not building nukes", etc. politicization has resulted in such high-quality field work...What's worse than waving through a Nigerian jihadi without a body search who's own influential dad had filed a specific red-alert? How about waving in a Taliban jihadi without a body search, who's coming in to be debriefed by a team of CIA officers?:
Bomber Who Killed CIA Members Reportedly Invited Onto U.S. Base in Afghanistan
Thursday , December 31, 2009
The bomber who killed seven CIA employees at a remote outpost in southeastern Afghanistan had been invited onto the base and had not been searched, two former U.S. officials told The Associated Press on Thursday
A former senior intelligence official says the man was being courted as an informant and that it was the first time he had been brought inside the camp. An experienced CIA debriefer came from Kabul for the meeting, suggesting that the purpose was to gain intelligence, the official said.
The bombing on Wednesday dealt a blow to the tight-knit spy agency. Among those killed was the chief of the CIA post, whom former officials identified as a mother of three. Six more agency personnel were wounded in what was considered the most lethal attack for the CIA since the war in Afghanistan began in 2001 and possibly even since the 1983 embassy bombing in Beirut.
President Barack Obama and CIA Director Leon Panetta were joined by several leading lawmakers on Thursday in praising agency employees for their work. [Two lions of American security, don't you feel soooo safe?--J.O.]
"Those who fell yesterday were far from home and close to the enemy, doing the hard work that must be done to protect our country from terrorism," Panetta said in a statement confirming the deaths. "We owe them our deepest gratitude, and we pledge to them and their families that we will never cease fighting for the cause to which they dedicated their lives — a safer America."
In a letter to CIA employees, Obama said their fallen colleagues came from a "long line of patriots" who had helped to keep the nation safe despite grave risks.
Obama acknowledged that the spy agency has been tested "as never before" since the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.
Rep. Silvestre Reyes, D-Texas, who chairs the House committee that oversees intelligence, said he had met with members of the CIA team in a recent visit to Afghanistan. Reyes said the nation owes them "a great debt."
"They will forever be in my mind," he said.
The bigger question for CIA operations will probably be whether the agency moves to tighten safety rules for its employees, the former employee said. [QUESTION??!! WHETHER??!! YAH THINK??!!--J.O.]
The incident occurred at a former military base on the edge of Khost city, the capital of Khost province which borders Pakistan and is a Taliban stronghold.
The Taliban claimed responsibility.
Forward Operating Base Chapman used to be a military facility base but was later turned into a CIA base, according to a U.S. official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak publicly.
You'd think this stuff wd be covered in "CIA 101": "Thoroughly search the potential informant from the notorious suicide-bombing militia before sitting him down to a meeting with a group of CIA honchos." Hell, how about "Dinky County Sheriff 101"? The cops won't even give a lift in a patrol car to some stranded soul without first checking their pockets. But hey, let's not worry about a "potential Taliban informant" in the wilds of Afghanistan.
Another thing that bothers me is this emotional cr@p about the poor CIA "mother of three." As far as I'm concerned, she was directly responsible for the security, or pathetic lack of same, at this explosive meeting. If she had survived, she'd need to be fired. I smell some kind of political/glass-ceiling story here, and there is absolutely no room for it in the war against jihad. We need to understand that when our security and intelligence services either willfully blind/restrain themselves, or exhibit such incredible competence, the results will ALWAYS be manifested in rivers of blood, mountains of corpses and body parts, and other assorted mayhem so favored by the jihadis who devote their Satanic lives to snuffing out our civilization.
And these mawkish, pathetic "tributes" after the fact only serve to divert our attention from the main problem, the war The Jihad is waging against us.
