Obama Passes The Buck
Harry Truman popularized the phrase "The Buck Stops Here" with a plaque that sat on his desk in the Oval Office for much of his presidency. It's a concept that seems lost on the current occupant of the Oval Office.

Holder Hangs It Up
Attorney General Eric Holder submitted his letter of resignation to the White House today. While he made history by being the first black attorney general, he was also a lightening rod for controversy.
NPR reports that by stonewalling the investigation of Operation Fast and Furious, Holder became the first attorney general in history to be held in contempt of Congress. By the way, a judge ruled this week that Holder must disclose the information that House Republicans have been demanding.

Obama's U.N. Mea Culpa
President Obama addressed the United Nations General Assembly today. With the war against ISIS dominating the headlines, Obama once again insisted that the Islamic State and all the other radical Islamic groups have nothing to do with Islam. He rejected the notion of a "clash of civilizations." But it most certainly is.
I half expected the president to start singing Kumbaya or quoting Rodney King, who asked, "Can we all get along?"

Obama Bombs Syria
U.S. forces struck Islamic State targets inside Syria for the first time last night. Command and control centers, vehicles and training camps were hit. But the likely reason for the attack was seemingly buried in most news reports.

A Deadly Competition
With all the news about ISIS, we can't forget that Al Qaeda, contrary to the president's claims, is not on the run. In fact, CBS News reports that the most imminent threat to our security right now is likely coming from an Al Qaeda division known as the Khorasan cell.

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 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.

Obama Puts Boots On The Ground -- In Western Africa
President Obama announced a new plan today to put boots on the ground, up to 3,000 American troops. . . to fight the Ebola epidemic. Over the years, books and movies have speculated about Ebola escaping the jungles of Africa and spreading throughout the world. I couldn't help but have a visceral reaction to this news this morning, not to mention all the irony and contradictions that it represents.

Terror On The Border And Abroad
Border Patrol agents reportedly found a banner posted on the Mexican side of the border fence in the Yuma sector. It condemned U.S. support for Israel, called for a free Palestinian state and threatened terrorism. The banner was placed on the border fence on 9/11.
