By Harold Hutchison

Pamela Gellar and Robert Spencer have been barred from entering the United Kingdom to speak at a rally where a British soldier was killed by two men. The British Home Office announced the ban, stating, that their entry would be blocked because it was not “conducive to the public good.”

Gellar, who blogs at Atlas Shrugs, and Spencer, who founded Jihad Watch, had been the subject of controversy before. Gellar had been a leading opponent of allowing the Ground Zero mosque to go forward, and had posted pro-Israel ads.

TERRORISTS ADJUST IN WAKE OF NSA REVELATIONS

Snowden Revelations Blamed
By Harold Hutchison

Intelligence officials believe that terrorists with groups like al-Qaeda are changing their methods in the wake of revelations by self-proclaimed whistleblower Edward Snowden.

“We can confirm we are seeing indications that several terrorist groups are in fact attempting to change their communications behaviors based specifically on what they are reading about our surveillance programs in the media,” an intelligence official told CNN on the condition of anonymity.

Have Snowden’s leaks damaged our ability to track terrorists?

Is showing the photographs of wanted terrorists offensive to Muslims? According to Representative Jim McDermott (D-WA), the answer is yes, and he wants the FBI to take down the “Faces of Global Terrorism” ads.

By Harold Hutchison

Iran’s new president, widely portrayed as a “moderate,” sat on a committee that recommended assassinations and terrorist attacks to the Iranian government. The explosive report by the Washington Free Beacon reportedly ties Hassan Rowhani to a 1994 bombing in Buenos Aries, Argentina, that killed 85 people.

Rowhani had once vowed that the Iranian regime “will not hesitate to destroy the activities of counterrevolutionary groups abroad”, according to 2001 article in Time magazine.

According to some reports, the Obama Administration hasn’t decided whether or not it will create a “no-fly” zone over Syria.

SAMS IN AL-QAEDA HANDS?

Document in Mali Raises New Fears
By Harold Hutchison

Al-Qaeda may be in possession of missiles capable of bringing down airliners. A manual captured in Mali by the Associated Press, reveals that the terrorist group that carried out the 11 September, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon now has access to shoulder-fired surface-to-air missiles.

The missiles in question are Russian-made SA-7s, code-named “Grail” by NATO. The missiles were widely exported by the former Soviet Union. The good news, if that, is that these are older missiles.

End the Benghazigate Cover-up

Months after the terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya, that killed four Americans, including the U.S. Ambassador, the American people are still waiting to hear the truth about why this happened. After all this time, critical questions still remain unanswered about: the policies that may have contributed to this debacle; the motives of the attackers; President Obama’s whereabouts after he learned our facilities in Benghazi were taking fire; the failure to mount any rescue attempt; and even the status of survivors; to name just a few.

SUSAN RICE GETS PROMOTED

Nominated For National Security Advisor
By Harold Hutchison

Susan Rice will get a promotion – as Barack Obama nominated her to take over as National Security Advisor after Thomas Donilon stepped down. Rice gained notoriety for her appearances on Sunday talk shows blaming an internet video for the 11 September, 2012 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi that left four Americans dead.

So why is the White House eager to give her this job? Is it a form of payoff for her role in BSing the American people?

WHY IS THE MEDIA IGNORING A FORMER HEZBOLLAH COMMANDER’S ARREST?

Frightening Story Unfolds in Texas
By Harold Hutchison

The arrest of a former Hezbollah commander in Texas had not been covered by the mainstream media – even as shocking revelations about his past in the terrorist group have come to light in a bail hearing.

Wissam Allouche was arrested in 2011, and charged with failing to disclose his past with the terror group. Allouche was recorded during the three-year investigation boasting about sodomizing and killing a captured Israeli soldier.

Why is the media not covering this case?

PAKISTANI TALIBAN BIGWIG KILLED

U.S. Drone Strike Responsible
By Harold Hutchison

A suspected American UAV strike killed the second-in-command of the Pakistani Taliban in North Waziristan, a restive part of the world’s largest Muslim country.

Waliur Rehman’s death, if confirmed, would be a major victory in the War on Terror for the United States. Rehman did have a $5 million reward on his head through the “Rewards for Justice” program.

Will this help the Pakistanis make progress against the Taliban?

MUSLIM ARRESTED IN STABBING OF FRENCH SOLDIER

Suspect Was Recent Convert to Islam
By Harold Hutchison

A 22-year-old man was arrested in the 25 May stabbing of a French soldier in a Paris suburb. The suspect, who at the time had been described as a tall man with a beard, was a recent convert to Islam.

The wounded French soldier, Pvt. Cédric Cordiez, had suffered a stab wound in his neck in the attack, which came three days after two men shouting “Allah akbar” killed a British soldier in the Woolwich area of London.

Now, are these attacks a coincidence, or are they a new form of “lone wolf” terrorists carrying out jihad?
