Introducing IranTruth: Don’t Trust The Mullahs (Video)

A new website called IranTruth.org aims to expose the truth about the nature of the Iranian regime– as well as the danger of a nuclear deal with the mullahs.

The website launched earlier this month with analysis, videos and background information on issues like Hezbollah in Latin America, the intricacies of the nuclear weapons process and more.

They’ve put out a new video  that exposes the dangers of trusting Iran on any nuclear deal:

Iran has also demonstrated an unwavering commitment to building nuclear weapons, enriching uranium in violation of international treaties and proliferating ballistic missiles with which to deliver weapons of mass destruction.

We must oppose any deal with Iran that doesn’t end their illegal nuclear weapons program and stop their sponsorship of Jihadist terrorism.

Unfortunately, the Obama administration treats Iran as a rational partner for peace. Since Mr. Obama became president he has been so desperate to achieve a nuclear agreement with Iran that his administration has been prepared to make any concession and ignore all bad behavior by Iran to get a legacy nuclear agreement. Obama administration officials have also repeatedly misled and lied about what they have agreed to in the nuclear talks with Iran.

In short, President Obama’s nuclear diplomacy with Iran will concede the bomb to Tehran.

Video: Boston terror suspects reportedly plotted to behead police officers

The man who was shot by anti-terrorism officers in Boston, yesterday, and the suspect now in custody, were ISIS inspired jihadists who had planned to behead a police officer, law enforcement officials say.

Via The Boston Globe:

“We believe the intent was to behead a police officer,” one official said Wednesday morning. “We knew the plot had to be stopped. They were planning to take action Tuesday.”

The other official said Boston police and the FBI and the Joint Terrorism Task Force were aware of the plot because of intelligence that had been gathered, and the suspects had been under surveillance for several weeks.

How do you reconcile the two versions of the story, the family version being that he was on his normal commute to work at a bus stop?”

Video: Ralph Peters Blasts Obama’s “False Humanitarianism” In Iraq

Lt. Col Ralph Peters (ret) appeared on Fox News, this morning to talk about the lackluster U.S. air campaign in Iraq – where 75% of our pilots are returning to base without dropping any ordnance at all due to the delays in decision-making process.

Last week, a former U.S. Air Force general who has led air campaigns over Iraq and Afghanistan, placed the blame for the failure right on the White House front steps. Due to Obama’s micromanagement the campaign, the process for ordering strikes has been so slow that the enemy is frequently allowed to escape.

“You’re talking about hours in some cases, which by that time the particular tactical target left the area and or the aircraft has run out of fuel. These are excessive procedures that are handing our adversary an advantage,” said retired Lt. Gen. David Deptula, a former director of the Combined Air Operations Center in Afghanistan in 2001.

“The ultimate guidance rests in 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue,” he said. “We have been applying air power like a rain shower or a drizzle — for it to be effective, it needs to be applied like a thunderstorm.”

“It’s false humanitarianism,” Peters told Bill Hemmer on America’s Newsroom. “Let’s apply simple logic. In our refusal to accept hundreds of civilian deaths in Syria and Iraq in air strikes, we condemn millions of people in the Middle East to live under the tyranny of the Islamic State.”

“Warfare will never be perfectly clean,” Peters continued. “Now, we had a problem with over-worrying about civilian casualties in the Bush administration – but it’s become a mania with the Obama administration.”

“You heard Josh Earnest talking about two civilian casualties in November – and suddenly we have to put the breaks on our airstrikes? Against a ruthless, fanatical, uncompromising enemy like the Islamic State militants? – If you elevate worries about civilian deaths and casualties above the will to win, you will lose – and we are losing,” Peters said.

Frustrated Pilots Speak Out Against Obama’s Fubar Air War in Iraq

Members of the US Air Force are grumbling because their Commander in Chief’s “no-boots-on-the-ground” pledge is keeping them from fighting an effective air campaign against Daesh in Iraq and Syria.

Within the U.S. Air Force, there’s mounting frustration that the air campaign against ISIS in Syria and Iraq is moving far more slowly than expected. Instead of a fast-moving operation with hundreds of sorties flown in a single day—the kind favored by many in the air service—American warplanes are hitting small numbers of targets after a painstaking and cumbersome process.

The single biggest problem, current and former Air Force officers say, is the so-called kill-chain of properly identifying and making sure the right target is being attacked. At the moment, that process is very complicated and painfully slow. “The kill-chain is very convoluted,” one combat-experienced Air Force A-10 Warthog pilot told The Daily Beast. “Nobody really has the control in the tactical environment.”

That story was posted at the Daily Beast back in October of 2014 – and the situation hasn’t improved one iota in 7 & 1/2 months. Can you imagine the frustration of these pilots?
Here’s Fox News 5/28/2015:

U.S. military pilots carrying out the air war against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria are voicing growing discontent over what they say are heavy-handed rules of engagement hindering them from striking targets. They blame a bureaucracy that does not allow for quick decision-making. One Navy F-18 pilot who has flown missions against ISIS voiced his frustration to Fox News, saying: “There were times I had groups of ISIS fighters in my sights, but couldn’t get clearance to engage.” He added, “They probably killed innocent people and spread evil because of my inability to kill them. It was frustrating.”

This crap has been going on for nearly a year, and they’ve been forced to watch Daesh slaughter their way through Iraq from the sidelines – only allowed to bomb one or two jihadis at a time.

Sources close to the air war against ISIS told Fox News that strike missions take, on average, just under an hour, from a pilot requesting permission to strike an ISIS target to a weapon leaving the wing. A spokesman for the U.S. Air Force’s Central Command pushed back: “We refute the idea that close air support strikes take ‘an hour on average’. Depending on the how complex the target environment is, a strike could take place in less than 10 minutes or it could take much longer. “As our leaders have said, this is a long-term fight, and we will not alienate civilians, the Iraqi government or our coalition partners by striking targets indiscriminately.”

 A former U.S. Air Force general who led air campaigns over Iraq and Afghanistan also said today’s pilots are being “micromanaged,” and the process for ordering strikes is slow — squandering valuable minutes and making it possible for the enemy to escape.

“You’re talking about hours in some cases, which by that time the particular tactical target left the area and or the aircraft has run out of fuel. These are excessive procedures that are handing our adversary an advantage,” said retired Lt. Gen. David Deptula, a former director of the Combined Air Operations Center in Afghanistan in 2001.

Deptula placed the blame squarely on the community organizer in the White House.

“The ultimate guidance rests in 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue,” he said. “We have been applying air power like a rain shower or a drizzle — for it to be effective, it needs to be applied like a thunderstorm.”

Of course this is his doing. He wants to be the anti-Bush – and Bush was hammered by the left for the (highly inflated) civilian casualties during the Iraq War.

“But wait,” you say – there are many more civilian casualties as a result of us doing nothing. ISIS is slaughtering, torturing, enslaving hundreds of people at a time – in the most heinous and gruesome ways!

But of course Obama doesn’t care about any of that. He just doesn’t want to get blamed for it.. And he knows, that by taking this dovish, hesitant, womanly stance, he keeps his anti-war base happy. And that’s really all that matters.

They will continue to gain ground, strength and power because President Fubar refuses to deal with them. But it’s okay – this cluster-F won’t reach critical mass until he’s left office (he’s hoping.)

 Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., recently complained that 75 percent of pilots are returning without dropping any ordnance, due to delays in decision-making up the chain of command. A senior defense official at the Pentagon pushed back on the comparisons between the air war against ISIS and past air campaigns. “The Gulf War and Kosovo are not reasonable comparisons. In those instances, we were fighting conventional forces. Today, we are supporting a fight against terrorists who blend into the civilian population,” he said. “Our threshold for civilian casualties and collateral damage is low. We don’t want to own this fight. We have reliable partners on the ground.”

Riiiight – here they are “blending in” near Rutbah a couple of weeks ago after the fall of Ramadi:

Ralph Peters: Release of Bin Laden Docs Timed To Divert Attention From Ramadi Embarrassment

Fox News had strategic analyst Lt. Col. Ralph Peters (ret) on Wednesday to discuss the release of the hundreds of documents that were found during the Osama bin Laden raid in April of 2011.

Bill Hemmer asked Peters what he thought about the docs – specifically the revelations that OBL was interested in “large scale terror operations” and his “stunned” reaction to the Arab Spring.

“First glance at this Col, what do you see?” Hemmer asked.

Peters was ready with his answer – not that it was what Hemmer had in mind: “What I see is an attempt by the administration to divert our attention from the fall of Ramadi. Do you think it’s an accident that these documents are suddenly dumped on us when the administration is horribly embarrassed by having claimed Islamic State is on the defensive? … Look at the timing.”

He added, “they’re reverting to their one foreign policy win in six-and-a-half years.” (A foreign policy win Obama had to be dragged into against his will after months of indecision and delays, I might add.)

“You know what our one success has been, Bill?” Peters continued.  “We’ve Been very successful at arming Islamic State. Because we give the weapons to the Iraqi government, they give them to their troops, and the troops run away. I mean – look at the vehicles Islamic State is driving. Look at their weapons. That’s US equipment.”

Jordan Matson, a 28 year old Iraq War vet from Wisconsin who is in Northern Syria fighting ISIS with the Kurds, concurred on Facebook:

Geez Iraqi Army.

why dont you just give us your weapons as well if your going to constantly flee and even leave your tanks for ISIS. Another reason the United States should be arming ALL the kurds directly.

Remember how the moonbat left use to “question the timing” every time the Bush administration made a move about anything? It got to be like political Tourette’s Syndrome and we on the right would laugh at the unhinged accusations because they always seemed so random and ridiculous.

The left exposes their own modus operandi by accusing the right of engaging in the type of nefarious schemes they engage in.  Like sociopaths, they’ll always accuse you of doing the very thing that they are guilty of themselves. They do this to deflect attention away from themselves.

We saw this sick projection all throughout the Bush years (but most of us didn’t recognize it as projection at the time).

Remember how they kept accusing the right of questioning their patriotism? It was not just Hillary Clinton in her famous “I’m sick and tired” tirade. Over and over different members of the left accused conservatives of questioning their patriotism for opposing the Iraq War. But as I’ve noted in the past, that simply didn’t happen. I found it very puzzling at the time.

The left was doing two things.

1. Projecting – They were letting us know what they would do if they were in the same position – because as soon as a Democrat was back in the White House, there was a conga-line of Democrats accusing their political opponents of being unpatriotic, unAmerican, and treasonous for opposing Obama. Often in the crudest manner possible. That totally DID happen – and continues to happen.

2. Distracting – Diverting attention away from the fact that their position on the Iraq war was indeed grossly cynical and political. In a word – unpatriotic.  (Robert Gates would go on write in his memoir that Hillary laughingly admitted to him that her opposition to the surge was pure politics.)

We constantly see the worst things they accused Bush of doing, being played out by their Alinsky-trained ringer in the White House.

As ISIS Seizes Ramadi and Palmyra, Obama Fights ManBearPig (Video)

Rep. Michael McCaul (R-Texas), chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, is calling on the Obama administration to come up with a “more aggressive strategy” to deal with ISIS/Daesh in Iraq. The apocalyptic terrorists now control the “key, strategic” city of Ramadi, the capital of Anbar Province.

“The black flags are flying there,” McCaul told Fox News Wednesday morning. “This is a key transit point to Syria in Iraq, and now it’s fallen to ISIS.”

McCaul said that during his recent visit to Baghdad, Iraq’s prime minister told him after asking the White House for more military assistance, he has only received received humanitarian assistance. Whatever that means. Suitcases for impromptu road trips? Extra absorbent towels to wipe up the blood?

But it gets better. Obama’s new BFFs on the world stage now get to flex their muscles in Iraq.

“And now the prime minister of Iraq has to rely on the (Iranian) Shia militia — which is, I think, the most disturbing fact…my takeaway from the Middle East — because his Iraqi national army is so incapable of defending Ramadi, of defending Mosul…that you have to rely on the proxy of Iran, Shia militas, to come in to Iraq to fight ISIS.”

Those Shia militas of course would be our sworn enemies during the Iraq war – who American soldiers died fighting.

“This is a prescription for disaster — it will only inflame the Sunni tribes, make the sectarian divisions even deeper and wider, and I don’t see it as a long-term strategy to win.”

McCaul said the Obama’s adminsitration’s strategy — “whatever the strategy is” — is not working.

John McCain took to the Senate floor today to blast administration toadies for playing down the Ramadi “set-back.”

Referring to White House Press Sec Josh Earnest’s recent comments, McCain seethed, “how could anyone say that we shouldn’t light our hair on fire when news reports clearly indicate that there are burning bodies in the streets of Ramadi, that ISIL are going from house to house – seeking out people and executing them. Tens of thousands of people are refuges. And what does the president’s spokesman say?! That we shouldn’t light our hair on fire every time there is a setback.”

Shoebat on the door to door carnage in Ramadi.

Muslims in the Iraqi city of Ramadi, all members of ISIS, went door to door slaughtering innocent people at random, eventually killing 500 people at the end of their murder spree. According to one report:

ISIS fighters went door-to-door looking for military troops and security forces after taking the city, and killed 500 people in the streets, including children.

Click on the link at your own risk as there is a gruesome photo.

Muhanad Haimour, an Anbar Province spokesman, said:

There have been executions in the streets of Ramadi… The situation in the city is absolutely terrible. The city is in very bad shape.

Sheikh Rafi al-Fahdawi, a tribal leader from Ramadi who had been fighting ISIS, recounted the scene of horror:

Men, women, kids and fighters’ bodies are scattered on the ground… All security forces and tribal leaders have either retreated or been killed in battle. It is a big loss.

In Syria –  as I’m sure you’ve heard by now – the ancient city of Palmyra fell to ISIS – and ”its grand complex of 2,000-year-old colonnades and tombs – one of the world’s most magnificent remnants of antiquity,” will soon be destroyed by the barbarians.

This comes just five days after they seized the Iraqi city of Ramadi.

But for the fighters on the ground, the city of 50,000 people is significant because it sits among gas fields and astride a network of roads across the country’s central desert. Palmyra’s vast unexcavated antiquities could also provide significant revenue through illegal trafficking.

Control of Palmyra gives the Islamic State command of roads leading from its strongholds in eastern Syria to Damascus and the other major cities of the populated west, as well as new links to western Iraq, the other half of its self-declared caliphate.

the State Department is deeply concerned about all of this and will be closely watching the destruction of the city.

***

When a reporter asked her if something could be done to save the city, State Department spokesperson Marie Harf said, “Well, we are deeply concerned about reports of ISIL’s attacks on the Syrian city, which holds the ruins of Palmyra.”

She acknowledged that “the destruction and looting of these sites has been sort of something we’ve seen in other places” and it’s “incredibly harmful,” but as to the question of what the U.S. could do, Harf only had this to offer:

“We’ll keep watching here, we’ll keep seeing what’s happening on the ground.”

Harf added: “This is the reason we’re trying to push back ISIL out of Iraq and to try and help the Syrian opposition push back ISIL in Syria.”

“This is something we’re following; we’re concerned about this. Obviously, it has been caught in the crossfire for some time and we’ll speak up about it,” said Harf. “Beyond that, I’m not sure what more can be done.”

PJ Tatler: In the Wake of ISIS Gains in Iraq and Syria, POTUS Says Climate Change Poses “Immediate Risk To Our National Security”

The threat of terrorism in the homeland ranks pretty low in this president’s list of issues to be concerned about. In case you haven’t noticed.

“Climate change” is apparently the national security threat that keeps Obama up at night. And those who refuse to act on this crucial national security issue are guilty of “a dereliction of duty” and should be denounced for undermining “American readiness.”

He gave this delusional speech at the  at the commencement ceremony of the United States coast guard academy in New London, Connecticut.
The only saving grace to this hot mess  is the light, tepid applause Obama got at the end – which is typically what Commander in Chief gets when he speaks in front of military audiences – because they don’t buy his bullshit.

Rumor: Obama Admin Okayed Raid on Abu Sayyaf in Syria To Take The Sting Out Of Ramadi Failure

Over the weekend, while the the Obama administration was patting itself on the back for the Delta Force raid on ISIS/Daesh Oil Financier Abu Sayyaf, ISIS was sacking Ramadi, seizing U.S. military equipment, including missile launchers and tanks – enough to  “take 3 more Mosuls and about 10 Ramadis,” according to one ISIS supporter.

Bill O’Reilly asked his guests, Lt. Col. Ralph Peters (ret) and Col. David Hunt (Ret.) Monday night,  if they’ve heard the same rumor he’d heard that “the Obama administration knew that Ramadi was going to fall, knew it was an embarrassment, and then okayed this mission (as Col Hunt mentioned there were more than one hundred other requests that were not okayed – to take the sting out of the Ramadi situation.”

Peters said, “I’ve not heard that direct link, but I have heard the administration is doing everything it can to do damage control on the fall of Ramadi.”

(Yes, sadly, we have our own Baghdad Bobs now assigned to “damage control.”)

“Bill, the State Department has finally said that the fall of Ramadi was a set-back. It’s not a set-back. It’s a catastrophe! Ramadi is 75 miles from Baghdad! That’s Trenton to downtown Manhattan. It’s the capital of Anbar province – the key Sunni Arab province – it’s important because so many bled – died! – to take Ramadi!”

He continued to say that it was also a huge symbolic win for the Islamic State, and that “there are even some reports they got some of our M-1 tanks we gave the Iraqis.”

“Iraqi Special Forces, their elite operations – ran away, Peters added.”

Col. Hunt blasted the administration for its ineffective 9 month air campaign, “which was never going to work anyway” because the lack of troops on the ground coordinating with pilots.

Via PJ Media:

A coalition spokesman said Monday afternoon that the U.S.-led coalition  ”has conducted 19 air strikes in the vicinity of the Iraqi city of Ramadi over the past 72 hours.”

The strikes targeted Islamic State fighting positions, armoured and technical vehicles, and buildings they control.

Obama allegedly has a coalition of 60 nations fighting ISIS with us and they only managed 19 airstrikes in a three-day period.

During the Gulf War’s “Shock and Awe” campaign, the U.S. rained down 300 to 400 cruise missiles a day on Iraq for two consecutive days. At the beginning of the Iraq War, the U.S. unleashed 800 cruise missiles in two days.

Meanwhile, a massive convoy of ISIS fighters was able to parade out in the open desert in Western Anbar on Monday, completely unmolested.

The Regime says a “sandstorm” prevented them from acting, but pictures and video show an area completely clear of sand storms.

According to the ISIS Study Group,  “the public thinks Ramadi fell just the other day, but in all honesty IS had been in control of the city for the last six months.”

All this did was make it “official.” We’re aware of 50 ISF personnel who are currently trapped in the city with no way out – meaning they don’t have long on this Earth. The Obama administration may be downplaying the significance of this blow, but this is the biggest IA defeat since the fall of Mosul.

We’ve been warning about IS’ tightening chokehold on the province and how al-Asad Airbase is in danger of being overrun. As of this writing, the base is surrounded and isolated from any ground reinforcements with the Iraqi Army (IA) base in Taqaddum also vulnerable to a complex attack. A smaller IA presence at Camp Warar has been completely cut off and already experiencing probing attacks with the IS OP-tempo increasing in Fallujah and Karmah – which have forced some of the Shia proxy Popular Mobilization Committee (PMC) personnel to withdraw. After purging Ramadi of the remaining ISF presence, IS held a massive parade with a large concentration of fighters, armored vehicles and other confiscated equipment involved in the festivities as a show of force and to taunt the US government for being so weak. Not surprisingly, the Obama administration failed to capitalize on the large concentration of fighters in the area by not launching airstrikes on their positions. They claim a “sandstorm” prevented the US Air Force from launching airstrikes, which is interesting since the area seems pretty clear of sandstorms in the video footage that’s circulating the net.
