A Deadly Competition

ISIS Down Under. . . 

The headlines continue to read like nightmares. Law enforcement agencies in Australia broke up a plot by ISIS jihadists to carryout beheadings. 

Approximately 800 agents performed raids in Sydney, Brisbane and Logan. Fifteen Islamic State sympathizers were arrested today. They had planned to cut off the heads of random folks walking in the streets and film the beheadings for propaganda. 

Terror Warnings, Border Security

Terror Warnings Abound 

In the past 24 hours, postings in online jihadi forums have appeared encouraging Islamic State sympathizers in America to attack major tourist destinations such as Las Vegas and Times Square. According to one report, the postings involve "a comprehensive guide to building pipe bombs using easily obtained materials like match heads, sugar and Christmas lights."

The information in the messages isn't necessarily new. They are similar to some that appeared nearly a month ago.

President Obama announced a new plan today to put boots on the ground, up to 3,000 American troops. . . to fight the Ebola epidemic.

Security Moms Are Back, Al Qaeda On The March, Bush = Hitler?

Return Of The Security Moms 

Two stories on the front page of today's Washington Post must have sent Obama White House aides rushing for the Maalox. One is about terrorism and the other is about the president's approval rating. They are related and they are bad news for the president.

Obama's Strategy 

President Obama delivered a prime-time address to the nation last night laying out his strategy for confronting ISIS (ISIL). Reaction to the president's address was mixed. 

Obama apologists were in full damage control mode, arguing that critics were simply playing politics. But there was considerable criticism from the left. For example:

Obama To Lay Out ISIS Strategy 

President Obama will address the nation tonight, perhaps offering his strategy for defeating ISIS. Some analysts believe the president has an opportunity to revive himself. Polls indicate that the public is primed for action. The question is whether Obama will deliver. 

Foreign Policy Debate, Kudos To Mike Pence

The Great Foreign Policy Debate 

President Obama is huddling with congressional leaders today, outlining his newly developed strategy for combating the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, which he once dismissed as a "JV" team. Tomorrownight Mr. Obama will share those plans with the rest of the country.
