The Bin Laden Raid Five Years Later   Leave a comment


aaline

It is hard to believe that it has been 5 years since the U.S. raid and killing of terrorist kingpin Osama Bin Laden. The terrorist that planned and carried out the 9/11 attacks and the African embassy bombings killing thousands of innocent civilians was finally cornered and killed by U.S. special operations forces.

Bin Laden wanted to engulf the world in an all-out religious war, Muslim fundamentalist armies against pretty well everybody else on the planet.  It was a psychotic vision carried out by an apocalyptic despot who saw anybody who disagreed with his narrow outlook as apostates who should be exterminated.  I don’t believe in hell, but in Bin Laden’s case I dearly hope there is a burning infinite pit of fire where the evil man will burn for eternity.

Finding Bin Laden

BBC and ABC news.

American intelligence officials discovered the whereabouts of Osama bin Laden by tracking one of his couriers, Abu Ahmed al-Kuwaiti as bin Laden was believed to have concealed his whereabouts from al-Qaeda foot soldiers or top commanders.

Identity of his courier

Identification of al-Qaeda couriers was an early priority for interrogators at CIA black sites and Guantanamo Bay detention camp.

By 2002 interrogators had heard uncorroborated claims about an al-Qaeda courier with the nom de guerre (or “pseudonym of war”) Abu Ahmed al-Kuwaiti (sometimes referred to as Sheikh Abu Ahmed, from Kuwait).  In 2003 Khalid Sheik Mohammed, the alleged operational chief of al-Qaeda, revealed under interrogation that he was acquainted with al-Kuwaiti but that he was not active in al-Qaeda.

In 2004 an al-Qaeda prisoner named Hassan Ghul told interrogators that al-Kuwaiti was close to bin Laden as well as Khalid Sheik Mohammed and Mohammed’s successor Abu Faraj al-Libi.  Ghul further revealed that al-Kuwaiti had not been seen in some time, a fact which led U.S. officials to suspect he was traveling with bin Laden. When confronted with Ghul’s account, Khalid Sheik Mohammed maintained his original story. Abu Faraj al-Libi was captured in 2005 and transferred to Guantánamo in September 2006.  He told CIA interrogators that bin Laden’s courier was a man named Maulawi Abd al-Khaliq Jan and denied knowing al-Kuwaiti. Because both Mohammed and al-Libi had minimized al-Kuwaiti’s importance, officials speculated that he was part of bin Laden’s inner circle.

In 2007 officials learned al-Kuwaiti’s real name, though they will not disclose the name nor how they learned it. Since the name Maulawi Abd al-Khaliq Jan appears in the JTF-GTMO detainee assessment for Abu Faraj al-Libi released by WikiLeaks on April 24, 2011,  there was speculation that the US assault on the Abbottābad compound was expedited as a precaution.  The CIA never found anyone named Maulawi Jan and concluded al-Libi made the name up.

A 2010 wiretap of another suspect picked up a conversation with al-Kuwaiti.  CIA officials located al-Kuwaiti in August 2010 and followed him back to bin Laden’s Abbottābad compound. The courier and a relative (who was either a brother or a cousin) were killed in the May 2, 2011 raid.  Afterward some locals identified the men as Pashtuns named Arshad and Tareq Khan.  Arshad Khan was carrying an old, noncomputerized Pakistani identitification card which said he was from Khat Kuruna, a village near Charsadda in northwestern Pakistan. Pakistani officials have found no record of an Arshad Khan in that area and suspect the men were living under false identities.

The CIA used surveillance photos and intelligence reports to determine the identities of the inhabitants of the Abbottābad compound to which the courier was traveling. In September 2010, the CIA concluded that the compound was “custom-built to hide someone of significance,” and that bin Laden’s residence there was very likely.  Officials surmised that he was living there with his youngest wife.

Google Earth maps show that the compound was not present in 2001, but did exist on images taken in 2005.  Built in 2004, the three-story compound was located “at the end of a narrow dirt road”,  2.5 miles (4 km) northeast of the city center of Abbottābad.  Abbottābad is about 100 miles from the Afghanistan border on the far eastern side of Pakistan (about 20 miles from India). The compound is 0.8 miles (1.3 km) southwest of the Pakistan Military Academy (PMA), Pakistan’s “West Point”.  On a plot of land eight times larger than those of nearby houses, it was surrounded by 12-to-18-foot (3.7–5.5 m)  concrete walls topped with barbed wire.  There were two security gates, and the third-floor balcony had a seven-foot-high (2.1 m) privacy wall (which could hide the 6 ft 4 in (1.93 m) bin Laden).

There was no Internet or telephone service connected to the compound. Its residents burned their trash, unlike their neighbors, who set their garbage out for collection.  Local residents called the building the Waziristan Haveli (haveli is a term used in India and Pakistan that roughly translates to mansion).

The Raid on Bin Laden’s Compound

The raid was carried out by approximately two dozen heliborne U.S. Navy SEALs from the Red Squadron of the Joint Special Operations Command’s U.S. Naval Special Warfare Development Group (DEVGRU), also known as SEAL Team Six. For legal reasons (namely that the U.S. was not at war with Pakistan), the military personnel assigned to the mission were temporarily transferred to the control of the civilian Central Intelligence Agency. The DEVGRU SEALs operated in two teams and were reportedly equipped with Heckler & Koch HK416 military assault rifles, Mark 48 machine guns used for fire support, FN SCAR-H STD Mk 17 battle rifles and H&K MP7A1 personal defense weapons (with attached Knight’s Armament QDSS-NT4 suppressors), Insight Technology AN/AVS-6 and GPVNG-18 (Ground Panoramic Night Vision Goggles) L-3 night-vision goggles, body armor and sidearms such as SIG Sauer P226R Navy MK25 and H&K Mark 23 Mod 0.

According to The New York Times, a total of “79 commandos and a dog” were involved in the raid. The military working dog was a Belgian Malinois named Cairo. According to one report, the dog was tasked with tracking “anyone who tried to escape and to alert SEALs to any approaching Pakistani security forces”. The dog was to be used to help deter any Pakistani ground response to the raid and to help look for any hidden rooms or hidden doors in the compound. Additional personnel on the mission included a language interpreter, the dog handler, helicopter pilots, “tactical signals, intelligence collectors, and navigators using highly classified hyperspectral imagers”.

Navy Seals

The SEALs flew into Pakistan from a staging base in the city of Jalalabad in eastern Afghanistan after originating at Bagram Air Base in northeastern Afghanistan. The 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment (SOAR), a U.S. Army Special Operations Command unit known as the “Night Stalkers”, provided the two modified Black Hawk helicopters that were used for the raid itself, as well as the much larger Chinook heavy-lift helicopters that were employed as backups.

The Black Hawks appear to have been never-before-publicly-seen “stealth” versions of the helicopter that fly more quietly while being harder to detect on radar than conventional models; due to the weight of the extra stealth equipment on the Black Hawks, cargo was “calculated to the ounce, with the weather factored in.”

The Chinooks kept on standby were on the ground “in a deserted area roughly two-thirds of the way” from Jalalabad to Abbottabad, with two additional SEAL teams consisting of approximately 24 DEVGRU operators for a “quick reaction force” (QRF). The Chinooks were equipped with 7.62mm GAU-17/A miniguns and GAU-21/B .50-caliber machine guns and extra fuel for the Black Hawks. Their mission was to interdict any Pakistani military attempts to interfere with the raid. Other Chinooks, holding 25 more SEALs from DEVGRU, were stationed just across the border in Afghanistan in case reinforcements were needed during the raid.

The 160th SOAR helicopters were supported by multiple other aircraft, including fixed-wing fighter jets and drones. According to CNN, “the Air Force had a full team of combat search-and-rescue helicopters available”.

The raid was scheduled for a time with little moonlight so the helicopters could enter Pakistan “low to the ground and undetected”. The helicopters used hilly terrain and nap-of-the-earth techniques to reach the compound without appearing on radar and alerting the Pakistani military. The flight from Jalalabad to Abbottabad took about 90 minutes.

According to the mission plan, the first helicopter would hover over the compound’s yard while its full team of SEALs fast-roped to the ground. At the same time, the second helicopter would fly to the northeast corner of the compound and deploy the interpreter, the dog and handler, and four SEALs to secure the perimeter. The team in the courtyard was to enter the house from the ground floor.

As they hovered above the target, however, the first helicopter experienced a hazardous airflow condition known as a vortex ring state. This was aggravated by higher than expected air temperature (“a so-called ‘hot and high’ environment”) and the high compound walls, which stopped the rotor downwash from diffusing. The helicopter’s tail grazed one of the compound’s walls, damaging its tail rotor, and the helicopter rolled onto its side. The pilot quickly buried the aircraft’s nose to keep it from tipping over. None of the SEALs, crew and pilots on the helicopter were seriously injured in the soft crash landing, which ended with it pitched at a 45-degree angle resting against the wall. The other helicopter landed outside the compound and the SEALs scaled the walls to get inside. The SEALs advanced into the house, breaching walls and doors with explosives.

The Killing of Bin Laden

The SEALs encountered the residents in the compound’s guest house, in the main building on the first floor where two adult males lived, and on the second and third floors where bin Laden lived with his family. The second and third floors were the last section of the compound to be cleared. There were reportedly “small knots of children … on every level, including the balcony of bin Laden’s room”.

Osama bin Laden was killed in the raid, and initial versions said three other men and a woman were killed as well: bin Laden’s adult son Khalid, bin Laden’s courier (Abu Ahmed al-Kuwaiti), al-Kuwaiti’s brother Abrar, and Abrar’s wife Bushra.

In the earlier versions, Al-Kuwaiti is said to have opened fire on the first team of SEALs with an AK-47 from behind the guesthouse door, lightly injuring a SEAL with bullet fragments. A short firefight took place between al-Kuwaiti and the SEALs, in which al-Kuwaiti was killed. His wife Mariam was allegedly shot and wounded in the right shoulder. The courier’s male relative Abrar was then said to have been shot and killed by the SEALs’ second team on the first floor of the main house as shots had already been fired and the SEALs thought that he was armed (this was later confirmed to be true in the official report). A woman near him, later identified as Abrar’s wife Bushra, was, in this version, also shot and killed. Bin Laden’s young adult son is said to have encountered the SEALs on the staircase of the main house, and to have been shot and killed by the second team. An unnamed U.S. senior defense official stated that only one of the five people killed, Abu Ahmed al-Kuwaiti, was armed. The interior of the house was pitch dark, because CIA operatives had cut the power to the neighborhood. However, the SEALs wore night vision goggles.

The SEALs encountered bin Laden on the third floor of the main building. Bin Laden was “wearing the local loose-fitting tunic and pants known as a kurta paijama“, which were later found to have €500 and two phone numbers sewn into the fabric.

Bin Laden peered through his bedroom door at the Americans advancing up the stairs, and then retreated into the room as the lead SEAL fired a shot at him, which either missed or hit him in the side. Robert O’Neill, who later publicly identified himself as the SEAL who shot bin Laden, rolled through the door and confronted bin Laden inside the bedroom. Seymour Hersh reports that, according to his sources, Bin Laden was found cowering and shot dead.

O’Neill states that bin Laden was standing behind a woman with his hands on her shoulders, pushing her forward. O’Neill immediately shot bin Laden twice in the forehead, then once more as bin Laden crumpled to the floor. Matt Bissonnette, who entered the room at about the same time, also claims to have fired shots into bin Laden’s fallen body. Simultaneously, in these versions, one of bin Laden’s wives, Amal Ahmed Abdul Fatah is said to have screamed at the SEALs in Arabic and motioned as if she were about to charge. The lead SEAL shot her in the leg, then grabbed both women and shoved them aside. The weapon used to kill bin Laden was a HK416 allegedly using 5.56mm NATO 77-grain OTM (open-tip match) rounds made by Black Hills Ammunition. The SEAL team leader radioed, “For God and country—Geronimo, Geronimo, Geronimo”, and then, after being prompted by McRaven for confirmation, “Geronimo E.K.I.A.” (enemy killed in action). Watching the operation in the White House Situation Room, Obama said, “We got him.”

There were, in these reports, said to be two weapons near bin Laden in his room, including an AKS-74U carbine and a Russian-made Makarov pistol, but according to his wife Amal, he was shot before he could reach his AKS-74U. According to the Associated Press, the guns were on a shelf next to the door and the SEALs did not see them until they were photographing the body.

As the SEALs encountered women and children during the raid, they restrained them with plastic handcuffs or zip ties. After the raid was over, U.S. forces moved the surviving residents outside “for Pakistani forces to discover”. The injured Amal Ahmed Abdul Fatah continued to harangue the raiders in Arabic. Bin Laden’s 12-year-old daughter Safia was allegedly struck in her foot or ankle by a piece of flying debris.

While bin Laden’s body was taken by U.S. forces, the bodies of the four others killed in the raid were left behind at the compound and later taken into Pakistani custody.

And so ended a strange and sad saga in the history of the world. If one factors in Bush’s invasion of Iraq (purportedly spurred on by the 9/11 attacks) and the deaths that were caused by that invasion, some estimates put Iraqi dead at 250,000 or more, and the Afghanistan war. Bin Laden is directly and indirectly responsible for the deaths of over half a million lives.

And his legacy lives on with the emergence of ISIS.  Another psychotic apocalyptic extreme Muslim movement that would not have emerged if not for Bush’s mega-blunder in Iraq.

ISIS Threatens Attack on Puppy Bowl   Leave a comment

RAQQA, Syria — The latest ISIS video to surface warns of an attack on Puppy Bowl XII.

The grainy video posted to terrorist chatrooms shows a masked militant pressing a machete against the neck of a young stray dog, warning the US of an attack on the popular, adorable annual event. A copy of the video posted to YouTube has been removed “because fuck those guys,” according to a spokesman for the video streaming service.

“Bring your soldiers and Marines to fight us here in our homeland. Or else Puppy Bowl will move from Animal Planet to the History Channel!” said the covered man with a muffled English accent.

The unknown fighter, clearly a cat person, continues, “The key to winning is to attack your enemy’s vulnerabilities. We have discovered through our own intelligence sources that puppies apparently strike a deep chord with Americans and Westerners at large. To us, this dog here is dinner tonight, whether or not the US complies with our demands. But after the surprising outrage we witnessed throughout the US after Cecil the Lion was murdered, we started to connect the dots.”

US government officials have confirmed the authenticity of the video and are working in concert with Animal Planet to ensure the upcoming Puppy Bowl will be heavily guarded by federal, state and local animal control agents. Security has also been raised at the Panda House at the National Zoo, as well as places where baby ducks have been known to congregate, as officials believe this may be a prelude to a more general attack on cuteness.

Another Incompetent Terrorist Blasts His Way to Virgin Heaven   Leave a comment

Man in wheelchair likely suicide bomber who blew hole in Somali flight, then was sucked out engulfed in flames, officials believe.

A bomb that blew a hole in the side of a Somalian passenger plane was smuggled on board by a passenger in a wheelchair who somehow managed to slip through security, investigators suspect.

The bomber, engulfed in flames, was believed to have been sucked out of plane, but that’s yet to be confirmed.

Witnesses on the ground said they saw a charred body fall to the ground after the blast Wednesday.

Local police have previously said residents of Balad, a town 30 kms north of Mogadishu, found the body of a man who might have been blown out of the Airbus 321.

Somalia’s government identified the missing passenger as Abdullahi Abdisalam Borle, but gave no details about him or how he died.

An unnamed Western diplomat told the Wall Street Journal the man was transferred to a regular seat after boarding, but offered no details how he might have managed to get past security screening.

In a statement issued after a cabinet meeting, Deputy Prime Minister Mohamed Omar Arteh said the government would tighten the airport’s security.

Somalia-based terror group Al Shabaab, which has close links to Al Qaeda, is believed behind the attack.

The Airbus A321 was carrying 74 passengers when the explosion struck only minutes into the flight.

The pilot was able to land the plane.

A cellphone video taken by someone on board showed passengers sitting quietly, some wearing oxygen masks, as the plane descended for an emergency landing.

All but four of the passengers originally had tickets with Turkish Airways and were rebooked on the Daallo flight after cancelled flights left them stranded in the Somali capital, Yassin said.

He suggested the Turkish Airlines’ decision to scrap two flights may have been linked to intelligence it received about a possible security threat.

A Turkish Airlines official said there were no cancellations for security reasons.

Australia terror accused discussed ‘kangaroo bomb’   Leave a comment


BBC

What are these fools going to scheme up next? From shoe bombs, to underwear bombs, and now ‘Kangaroo Bombs’.  The terrorists in Iraq stuffed dead animals with explosives and placed them on the side of the road. Detonated the animal corpse when Allied vehicles drove by.

But lets leave the “Roos” alone you imbeciles.  In the name of a Jumpin Jehovah surely there isn’t a mob of virgin kangaroos up in Allah’s heaven waiting for ‘Boomer’ martyrs?

Sevdet Ramadan Besim has pleaded not guilty to terror charges

aaline

An Australian teenager allegedly discussed packing a kangaroo with explosives, painting it with an Islamic State symbol and setting it on police.

Sevdet Ramadan Besim, 19, was committed to trial on Thursday after pleading not guilty to four terror charges in a Melbourne court.

He is accused of plotting to run down and behead a police officer in Melbourne on Anzac Day.

Mr Besim was one of five teens arrested in police raids in April last year. Prosecutors alleged on Thursday that he was communicating with a teenager overseas about his planned attack.

 “I’d love to take out some cops,” Besim allegedly wrote.  “I was gonna meet with them then take some heads ahaha.”

The Australian Broadcasting Corp. quoted a document presented by prosecutors that summarised the alleged conversation about the kangaroo bomb.

“The conversation continues with BESIM detailing what he did that day and they have a general discussion around animals and wildlife in Australia including a suggestion that a kangaroo could be packed with C4 explosive, painted with the IS symbol and set loose on police officers,” the document reportedly said.

Anzac Day, held on 25 April each year, commemorates Australian and New Zealand personnel killed in conflicts.

Mr Besim allegedly conducted internet searches on Anzac Day in preparation for a terrorist attack.

ISIS Monsters deploy “Frankentrucks”   Leave a comment


§

ISIS’ latest weapon: ‘Franken-trucks’ welded with metal and packed with explosives

According to an American general operating on the frontline against ISIS militants, the barbaric group has begun welding metal plates onto cars and vans that are then laden with explosives, creating a fast-moving, highly-accurate mobile bomb.

Twisted fighters who are prepared to die for the death cult are then strapped into the vehicles before driving at speed directly towards their target.

US soldiers have dubbed the crudely-made but deadly machines ‘Franken-trucks’, saying they were like “something out of a movie”.

franken1

Jihadis are reportedly using up to 15 of the deadly new weapons in each operation as they battle Kurdish fighters in northern Iraq.

Major General Peter Gersten told American broadcaster CBS: “These ‘Franken-trucks’ are something out of a movie, something you see in a science fiction movie.

“These are vehicles that they’ve welded metal plates to, loaded them with high explosives, put a suicide bomber inside of them, and set themselves off. That is their precision weapon.”

But the adapted vehicles pale in comparison to the sophisticated military hardware being deployed by Western powers.

ISIS militants in Iraq are being pounded by a coalition of superpowers including the UK, US, France, Canada and Australia.

‘Franken-trucks’ are no match for the devastation wrought by a single laser-guided missile strike by an RAF Tornado.

A terrifying and hilarious map of squirrel attacks on the U.S. power grid

 

squirrel

Each marker represents a documented squirrel-induced power outage since 1987

Christopher Ingraham

 

I come across an awful lot of strange data in my line of work. Toilets. Goats. Ugly counties. But today, I stumbled upon what may be the finest dataset in existence: a comprehensive database of incidents where squirrels and other critters have knocked out part of the power grid.

The slightly tongue-in-cheeck Cyber Squirrel 1 promises a list of “all unclassified Cyber Squirrel Operations that have been released to the public that we have been able to confirm. There are many more executed ops than displayed on this map however, those ops remain classified.” It lists incidents going back to 1987, although naturally recent years’ data is more complete.

The website lists 623 power disruptions caused by squirrels, 214 by birds, 53 by raccoons, one by a Hannah Montana balloon, and a handful of other incidents caused by everything from snakes to slugs. Each report is linked to a news story so you can go dig up the terrifying details yourself.

The most recent incident in the database happened on January 2 in Wagoner, Oklahoma. A squirrel touched grounded wire at an electric substation, knocking out power for a portion of the town for five hours. The exact same thing happened only two months ago. “The squirrel, like the last one that caused the outage in November, did not survive the accident,” the report concludes.

There were about 137 squirrel-induced power outages in 2015, according to Cyber Squirrel’s data. That works out to about 1 squirrel attack every three days or so. And, as the site notes, this is probably an undercount.

The phenomenon of squirrel attacks is a great illustration of how our perception of risk tends to be skewed away from mundane frequent things toward big, scary improbable things. Plenty of ink gets spilled on the alleged vulnerability of our power grid to cyber attacks. But as none other then the Brookings Institution has noted, “squirrels have taken down the power grid more times than the zero times that hackers have.” You could say the same about Hannah Montana balloons, for that matter.

As told to The Post last month, The American Public Power Association, a group representing municipal electric utilities, says that squirrels are the most frequent cause of power outages in the U.S., although it notes that squirrel-induced outages typically affect fewer people than outages caused by storms. “Squirrels remain the biggest wildlife nemesis because of their sheer numbers and smarts,” the story concluded.

ISIS ‘Helpline’ Assists Suicide Bomber   Leave a comment


Duffelblog

arab

LANGLEY, Va. — The Central Intelligence Agency today released transcripts of conversations intercepted on the so-called “Terror Help Line” between ISIS agents in the field and tech support in Syria.

In one conversation the support agent is heard saying, “Salaam aleikum and death to the infidel,” before advising the caller that their conversation “may be recorded for training or propaganda purposes,” and asking how he can help.

The agent responds, “I’m underneath the stage at a large sporting event and my suicide vest won’t detonate” in a tone analysts described as “testy.”

While many security analysts were concerned about the identity of the terrorist target, help-line industry experts have applauded the ISIS technician’s professionalism.

“First let me apologize for any trouble you’re having today,” the technician says. “May I ask you a few questions to better assist you?”

“What? Sure, go ahead. It’s really loud down here,” the unknown agent shouts.

The technician goes on to list a series of common problems found in suicide bombs, asking if the battery is connected to the detonator, or if the blasting cap has come loose from the main charge.

When the bomber, clearly under stress, begins to shout and curse at the help line operator, he manages to calm the man down and help him complete his mission.

“Don’t talk to me like I’m some [expletive deleted] 11 year old chai-boy,” the agent screams. “I was building pressure plates in Iraq before you got your first pair of sandals!

Notes indicate that the technician used a “soothing voice” when he replied, “There’s no need for insults, sir. And thank you for your service. I know this isn’t your first attack, but with my help we’ll make sure it’s your last. Now if you’ll just calm down I’ll have you in Paradise shortly.”

When the technician asks if there is any debris or liquid blocking the trigger connection to the batteries, the agent responds that there is something.

“Now I remember,” the bomber says. “I spilled some coffee this morning. Ha. I completely forgot about it.”

The technician replies, “No problem, sir. Happens to the best of us. Just scrape off the [unintelligible] and you should be good to go,” before asking if the agent needs any further assistance.

The agent responds, “No, you’ve been a big help. Allahu Akbar!” before there is a sound of an explosion and then what the analysts call “sounds of chaos.”

According to intelligence sources, this particular bombing was a failure, as the agent succeeded in killing only himself and a team mascot who had slipped under the seats for a smoke.

Anonymous strikes again at ISIS social media   Leave a comment


WiredUK

anony

.

“Remember the terrorists that are calling themselves Islamic State, Isis, are not Muslims. Isis, we will hunt you, take down your sites, accounts, emails, and expose you from now on. No safe place for you online,” states the video.

Anonymous’ latest actions come after it ” declared war” on Isis-related websites and social media networks following the Charlie Hebdo shooting massacre in January 2015.

Along with this video stating the continuation of “Operation Isis”, Anonymous uploaded a Pastebin link with a list of Facebook profiles associated with the group, as well as ISIS-affiliated Twitter accounts.

Countering Isis’ exclusive ideology, Anonymous state in the video that “we come from all countries, races, religions and ethnicities… we are Muslims, Christians, Jews, we are hackers, crackers, phishers, agents, spies, or just the guy from next door”.

Isis has relied heavily on social media networks to disseminate propaganda, and has turned to online platforms in a bid to raise money. Its digital strategy has also been deployed to attract and radicalise new recruits both in the UK and abroad.

The recent attack by Anonymous temporarily sets back the extremist groups propaganda drive and recruitment campaign through social media.

Western Media invade Paris   Leave a comment


The Paris massacre has become the news event of 2015.  And the western media is milking it for everything they can. It looks like CNN has sent half their news department to the French capital.  All the others have followed suit.  Even the Canadian news stations have dispatched all their anchors over to the Gay Paris.  Peter Mansbridge, Lisa Laflamme and even that little strange hen Heather Hiscox from the CBC morning news show is over there.  Everybody in the major North American news industry are taking free trips to Paris and likely staying in very expensive hotels.

The media always over does it.  They will stick to a news story until the ratings polls tell them viewership is receding. Then another horrible event occurs and they charge to it like a herd of hysterical bison.  Media organizations don’t need to send all of their most popular journalists to the scene of the crime.  We know what happened. There is no need to have reporters re-hashing the event over and over.  Talking heads speculating what’s next,and trying to predict what went wrong.  All meaningless babble.

The Paris attacks were unimaginably tragic.  Very low-blow massacre conducted by depraved and delusional reprobates.  The creeps in ISIS make Al Qaeda look like alter boys.  They have to be destroyed.  It will take time, but it will be achieved.  In the meantime, other attacks will probably happen, and the western media organizations will stampede to the sites, especially if the attacks are carried out in cities with great hotels, superb cuisine and lots of police.
