Obama administration retreats (again) on Khalid Sheikh Mohammed civilian trial; Holder blames Congress

By Michelle Malkin  •  April 4, 2011 11:50 AM

Scroll for updates… Buzz out of Washington this morning is that the Obama administration has signaled it will end efforts to try 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed in a civilian trial and instead will use the Gitmo military tribunal system pursued by, yes, George W. Bush. AG Eric Holder is reportedly holding a 2pm Eastern […]

Omar Khadr: Guilty, guilty, guilty, guilty, guilty

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 25, 2010 10:16 AM

The bleeding-heart media continues to call murderous Omar Khadr a “child soldier,” but I’ve pierced that myth before. Breaking this morning, Khadr has pleaded guilty to five charges related to the killing of U.S. soldier Christopher Speer. Via the Globe and Mail: Omar Khadr, the only Canadian, only child soldier and only Guantanamo Bay detainee […]

Holder on hot seat at Senate Judiciary Committee

By Michelle Malkin  •  April 14, 2010 10:42 AM

The Senate Judiciary Committee is holding a hearing this morning with corruptocrat AG Eric Holder. C-SPAN is streaming it live here. Holder should have worn an Olympic gymnast’s outfit. After boasting last month that bin Laden would be killed and that he’d be reading Miranda rights to his corpse, Holder now says capturing him remains […]

Corruptocrat AG Eric Holder and his terror-coddling DOJ, Pt. 9,899

By Michelle Malkin  •  March 15, 2010 02:51 PM

Three must-read items following up on themes and stories I’ve been covering for you since day one of the reign of corruptocrat AG Eric Holder at Obama’s DOJ: In August 2009, I reported on the ACLU’s spying project: Operation CIA Paparazzi and hit again on the story here. The Washington Times reports today that the […]

Corruptocrat AG Eric Holder’s “forgetfulness” strikes again

By Michelle Malkin  •  March 11, 2010 11:55 AM

You know who should be feeling really, really stupid and sorry right now? The 19 Republican Senators who voted to confirm Eric Holder as the nation’s attorney general despite his long track record of putting political interests of the public interest at the expense of public safety, conflicts of interest, and his own admissions of […]

Thank you, Keep America Safe

By Michelle Malkin  •  March 8, 2010 11:24 AM

If not for the vigilant work of Keep America Safe, the corruptocrat Attorney General Eric Holder’s national security stone wall on DOJ’s terror lawyers would still be standing. Asking politely, in respectful tones with bowed heads and stooped spines, did not get the DOJ to cough up the names. It took relentless pressure and synergistic […]

National security flip-flop: Obama to retreat on KSM/Gitmo detainee civilian trials…for now

By Michelle Malkin  •  March 4, 2010 11:48 PM

Scroll down for updates, warnings… I want to take you back to November 13, 2009, less than four short months ago. That was the day corruptocrat Attorney General Eric Holder announced he was bringing 9/11 jihadi mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohamed and other Gitmo detainees to NYC for civilian trials. As I noted the day the […]

National security stone wall: Fox tells you what Holder won’t

By Michelle Malkin  •  March 3, 2010 04:57 PM

Corruptocrat AG Eric Holder refused to disclose the names of the terror lawyers in the DOJ. But you can find out what Team Obama doesn’t want you to know by heading over to the breaking news at FoxNews.com. A day after a conservative group released a video condemning the Justice Department for refusing to identify […]

More pressure on the Holder/DOJ stone wall: Who are the al Qaeda 7?

By Michelle Malkin  •  March 2, 2010 02:27 PM

Keep America Safe keeps the heat on corruptocrat AG Eric Holder over the terror lawyers in the DOJ: *** Related: Last month, I posted the must-watch video on KSM’s confession. So many people clicked over that the site went down. It’s back up and ready for viewing/sharing. Pass it on:

The latest on the Holder/DOJ national security cover-up

By Michelle Malkin  •  March 1, 2010 12:20 PM

Conservative media outlets continue to chip away at the Holder stonewall on government-subsidized terror lawyers working at the DOJ. Quin Hilyer at the Washington Times sums up the latest and asks the questions that need to be asked: Over at The American Spectator, the mysterious Prowler breaks new ground not just on the identities of […]

GOP beats back sneak attack on CIA interrogators

By Michelle Malkin  •  February 25, 2010 10:07 PM

Earlier today while the nation was focused on health care Oba-Kabuki, Andy McCarthy sounded the alarm on a Democrat sneak attack on CIA interrogators: The Obama Democrats have outdone themselves. While the country and the Congress have their eyes on today’s dog-and-pony show on socialized medicine, House Democrats last night stashed a new provision in […]

Corruptocrat Eric Holder’s national security cover-up

By Michelle Malkin  •  February 24, 2010 09:07 AM

My column pounds again on Eric Holder over his jihadi lawyer stonewalling. Question: Where’s Mass. GOP Sen. Scott Brown? Remember when he made this one of his key campaign agenda items and carried the banner on the issue during his election night speech: “And let me say this, with respect to those who wish to […]

Attention, NYC: White House still stuck on stupid

By Michelle Malkin  •  February 8, 2010 12:06 PM

The dream of Cirque du Jihad in the Big Apple lives. The White House won’t rule out multiple Gitmo civilian trials in NYC, despite bipartisan opposition and massive public outrage over the costs, risks, and recklessness. Still stuck on stupid, via the NYDailyNews: The feds may still try the 9/11 terror thugs near Ground Zero, […]

Courting Disaster hits #9 on NYTimes best-seller list

By Michelle Malkin  •  February 4, 2010 09:50 AM

Marc Thiessen’s must-read book, Courting Disaster, skyrocketed to #9 on the NYTimes best-seller list this coming week. Thiessen has relentlessly exposed how the Left and Obama are sabotaging all the effective intelligence-gathering programs that the Bush administration created to prevent jihadi attacks after 9/11 — and how media propagandists are helping them. Here’s one of […]

Gitmo-bashing judge rebuked; lax sentence for millennium bomber rejected

By Michelle Malkin  •  February 2, 2010 05:30 PM

Hell has frozen over. Pigs are sprouting wings. The left-leaning 9th Circuit Court of Appeals has removed a moonbat judge from the botched LAX millenium bomber case and ruled that his sentence was too short, unreasonable, and in blatant violation of federal sentencing guidelines. The story is breaking. Seattle P-I reports: The 9th U.S. Circuit […]

Cirque du Jihad: Coming to a federal court near you?

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 29, 2010 03:08 AM

My syndicated column today expands on Tuesday’s blog post about the Aafia Siddiqui terror trial debacle in New York City (see here for background/links) and what it portends for the future. Yes, I call it Cirque du Jihad. The White House and DOJ are now scrambling to cook up contingency plans for their jihadi show […]

Retreat: White House plays jihadi musical chairs

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 28, 2010 09:37 PM

Photo credit: Urban Infidel. President Obama’s rhetoric meets reality, again. After pushing hard to try Gitmo detainees in New York City, the White House has now ordered the Justice Department to try and find other venues. They are still insisting on shipping suspected jihadis to federal courts on U.S. soil. It’s going to be a […]

Courting Disaster: One of the most important books of the year

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 18, 2010 01:54 PM

Fellow Regnery author, friend, and patriot Marc Thiessen’s new book launches today. Courting Disaster is a must-must-read that gives you an inside, in-depth look at the successful CIA interrogations program under the Bush administration and the reckless subversion of our security by the current administration and its jihadi-abetting bedfellows: Thiessen will be on Hannity on […]

Video: John Yoo vs. Jon Stewart; Nutroots miffed; Stewart apologizes

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 13, 2010 10:42 AM

The Left’s clown prince, Jon Stewart, “took on” UC Berkeley law professor/former Bush DOJ official John Yoo on Monday. Yoo has just published “Crisis and Command” — a thorough, compelling history of the use of executive power by America’s presidents from Washington to Bush. Yoo has been demonized by the nutroots and stalked at his […]

Gibbs: “[A]ny additional transfers to Yemen is not a good idea;” Obama: “Let me be clear…”

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 5, 2010 03:23 PM

Scroll for updates… All weekend long, Team Obama’s intel folks refused to say that the White House would stop Gitmo transfers to Yemen. Looks like someone woke up and decided to stick a foot in the jihadi revolving door. For the moment, anyway: U.S. suspends Guantanamo prisoner transfer to Yemen… “While we remain committed to […]

Jihadi revolving doors, Pt. 999

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 5, 2010 11:10 AM

Last week, I spotlighted the dangerous catch-and-release jihadi programs at Yemen and Gitmo. The Times of London has a new report today on the bloody wages of jihadi recidivism: At least a dozen former Guantánamo Bay inmates have rejoined al-Qaeda to fight in Yemen, The Times has learnt, amid growing concern over the ability of […]

Yemen, Gitmo, and jihadi revolving doors

By Michelle Malkin  •  December 30, 2009 03:15 AM

My column today spotlights Yemen’s dangerous catch-and-release program for terrorists — and ours. But before you read it, please inform yourselves of this sad passing: American sailor/U.S.S. Cole bombing survivor Johan Gokool died in Florida yesterday. He lost a leg in the attack and suffered severe PTSD. Gokool was 31. R.I.P. and never forget. In […]

By Michelle Malkin  •  December 23, 2009 11:22 AM

When no one else will fight for your national security, you have to D-I-Y. Do it yourself. Defend Our Defenders continues to step up to the plate. Here’s the latest on the citizen backlash against the Obama administration’s Gitmo North plans at Thomson Correctional Facility. And details of a potential lawsuit: GITMO LAWSUIT COULD BLOCK […]
