Why we reject the West – by Osama bin Laden

Osama bin Laden is a tall, slim man and when he walks towards me surrounded by his Arab “mujahideen” guerrillas in the mountains of Afghanistan, he towers over his companions. Huge insects fly through the night air, settling like burrs on his Saudi robes and on the clothes of his men.

Stranger Things Season 4 Teaser Promises Business as Most Unusual

Hey, Stranger Things. It’s been a while — a long while, actually. More than two years after Netflix dropped Season 3 of the Duffer Brothers’ genre-bending sci-fi/horror smash, the streamer during Saturday’s TUDUM global fan event released a new teaser for Season 4, which won’t debut until (collective groan) 2022. As you’ll see in the clip above, it’s business as unusual for the beloved ’80s-set series, as viewers peek inside the ever-creepy Creel house. In a flashback, we see a family eating dinner, until the lights mysteriously flicker, and the children appear dead on the floor. Enter the Stranger Things gang,...

Top Russian diplomat defends mercenaries’ presence in Mali

UNITED NATIONS (AP) — Russia’s foreign minister is defending the Mali government’s right to hire a private Russian military company to help fight terrorists. He accuses French troops in the country of failing to get rid of them and scolding the European Union for demanding that the Russians leave. Sergei Lavrov said the company has a “legitimate” right to be in the West African nation because it was invited by the transitional government, and the Russian government is not involved.

ENCLOSED: List of Intel Fools Who Pushed Hunter Biden Russian Laptop Lie

This is about remembering and holding those who lie or are wrong accountable. Just because someone has worked in the intelligence community does not automatically confer on that person some sort of divine insight or infallibility. (Yes, I worked at the CIA as an analyst, but I had the good fortune of being a friend of J.P. Mac Isaac.) After more than a year of insisting that the material contained on the Hunter Biden laptop was some scandalous Bolshie plot, the Politico, one of the hacks that populate the mainstream media and blogosphere, came clean and admitted the laptop was Hunter’s and he left it at a Delaware computer repair shop. J.P. Mac Isaac is a truth teller.
