Dept. of Homeland Security Freaking Over The "Undetectable" Plastic Pistol

May 29, 2013 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org – Janet Napolitano, of DHS infamy, is all atwitter at the prospect of manufacturing firearms made out plastic through the use of 3-D printers and appropriate working blueprints.

A national security bulletin issued by DHS on the plastic pistols [called Liberators] as revealed by Fox News stated in part:

"Significant advances in three-dimensional (3D) printing capabilities, availability of free digital 3D printer files for firearms components, and difficulty regulating file sharing may present public safety risks from unqualified gun seekers who obtain or manufacture 3D printed guns…" [source, Jana Walker, Homeland Security bulletin warns 3D-printed guns may be 'impossible' to stop’]

According to Nappy, the technology is so fraught with peril that she is raising the hue and cry in hopes of spurring legislators into enacting another useless statute to control what isn’t a problem, the prospect of printers spitting out plastic AR even marginally equivalent to what can be bought in gun stores across most of the U.S. [CA, NY, etc., no guns for you] is remote at present.

Long term, no legislation can possibly contain the spread of groundbreaking technology.

3D printing is by no means a secretive process and more and more items can be made in this fashion, with ambitious plans to construct entire buildings or automobiles within possibility.

Regardless, despite the promise [for good or ill] of the technology this obviously shouldn’t be a front burner issue within the national security establishment.

The Muslim Assault on Christians


May 23, 2013 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - A few months ago, on February 18, the body of 43-year old Mostafa Talaie was found in the tranquil Dutch city of Oisterwijk. He had been stabbed to death at around 10 clock p.m. It was already dark then. Mostafa Talaie was an Iranian asylum seeker in Holland whose application for asylum had been granted just three days before his unexpected death. He was on his way to the asylum seekers center in Oisterwijk, a city in the south of Holland and was murdered just a few hundred meters away from the center. Initially, Mostafa had been accommodated in an asylum center in the northern province of Friesland. Mostafa was also a Muslim convert to Christianity and a frequent churchgoer in the Frisian village of Burgum. The Dutch police still do not know who killed him but the most likely candidates are radical Muslims in Holland.

Mostafa knew that he would be sentenced to death in Iran if the Dutch authorities would have decided to reject his application for asylum and if he would have been deported to Tehran. Mostafa’s reformed church pastor, the Rev. Marco Buitenhuis, told me recently that Muslim converts to Christianity have been subjected to violence more frequently than other asylum seekers. Other Iranian converts to Christianity assured Rev. Buitenhuis that the brutal way Mostafa was killed "pointed to an Iranian hand." "It is recognizable and it has to with Mustafa’s conversion to Christianity," they told him.

"Iranian Christian asylum seekers who were in the same asylum seekers center as Mustafa have been threatened by Muslim asylum seekers from Afghanistan," Rev. Buitenhuis says. "They told them that it is allowed to spill the blood of Christians. Both Afghans and Iranians speak Farsi." "I know that an Iranian asylum seeker who is a member of my church has now gone into hiding because he is scared that he is no longer safe here. Mind you, these people flee to Holland hoping to find peace and security here, but once they convert to Christianity, they don’t feel safe anymore." "Especially Iraqi and Afghan asylum seekers do not accept it when a Muslim decides to convert to Christianity. Three Iraqi Christians who were baptized in own church were confronted with hostility and violence in the last two and a half years. The most recent case was the beginning of this year." "This has been reported to the police, but we don’t hear from them."

But those asylum seekers who misbehave should not be granted asylum in Holland. Too many mistakes have been made in the past. In Holland, Belgium, France, Spain, Britain, Germany, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, the United States and Canada, a lot of asylum seekers have been granted asylum whose applications should have been rejected in the first place. In too many cases, they were radical Muslims who were and are still hostile to Western values, hated and still hate the Jews and suppressed and still suppress women.

Asfhin Ellian, a former Iranian refugee in Holland and now a professor of Law at Leiden University, needs a body-guard because radical Muslim immigrants want to kill him. olland Ellian is a courageous and vocal critic of Islam and militant Muslims believe so-called "apostates" deserve the death penalty. The outspoken Leiden University Professor now accuses Iran’s leaders of anti-Semitism. They deny the Holocaust, but want to wipe Israel from the map. Ellian believes that militant Muslims are Islamo-Fascists – and so do I.

The Duplicitous Da'wa Trap Caught On Video

By William Mayer

May 22, 2013 – San Francisco, CA – PipeLineNews.org – There is a YouTube video floating around, there are probably dozens of others, which records a "successful" da’wa pitch. Successful in the sense that both the non-Muslim who is being proselytized and the Islamic gentleman doing the conversion both believe it was a valid expression of Islamic faith, depicting a non-Muslim rejecting his membership in the Anglican Church, the Church of England.

Below, the video

The organization which is carrying out this aggressive conversion program is called DawaIsEasy. To supplement the numerous videos being featured, dialogues have been prepared to aid the effort of minting shiny new Muslims.

Example – Suggested Dialogue with a Christian

That these dialogues are purposefully dialectical, deceitful, immensely disrespectful of the targeted Christian [or Jew, or atheist or Druid for that matter] and his free choice of a religion is beside the point.

The issue is ALWAYS the same, coerce a forced recitation of what we must assume is the proselytist’s understanding of the Shahada – the Islamic statement of faith and a sign of conversion.

Muslim Brotherhood Agitates On Behalf Of “Palestinians,” Calls Jews Enemies
May 16, 2013 – San Francisco, CA – PipeLineNews.org – Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood and its political wing the FJP are once again fanning the flames of violence as Nakba Day [day of the catastrophe] approaches.

“…the 65th anniversary of the of the Palestinian people’s worst plight… the Freedom and Justice Party (FJP) reiterated its full support for Palestinians’ right to liberate and recover their territories from the evil of Israeli occupation, stressing the right of Palestinian refugees to return to their homes and their homeland as a sacred and historic right…FJP rejected all heinous plots being hatched against the Palestinian people to force them to give up more of their rights or their lands…The FJP paid tribute to the Palestinian resistance, calling on all Palestinian factions to close ranks and complete the historic march of honorable struggle, united in the face of their enemies.” [source, FJP on Nakba Day: No Land Exchange, No Palestine Right of Return Compromise, Ikhwanweb]

The “catastrophe” is a catch-all phrase used to foment violence against Jews and the state of Israel over the myth that the “Palestinians” are a homogenous people who were forcibly removed from their land by the Israelis during the 1948 war.
The fact is that the lands which is currently occupied by the so called Palestinians are in actuality, the Biblical kingdoms of Judea and Samaria.

The “refugees” who live in this area have intentionally been kept destitute by the Arab world which uses these impoverished people as political pawns in pursuit of the Islamist goal of the destruction of Israel.

In a speech before the UN in 1979, then Israeli Ambassador Yehuda Blum clearly stated the truth:

“...Let me remind the Jordanian representatives of the record. Between 1922 and 1946, Trans-Jordan remained an integral part of Mandated Palestine. In 1946, it became the independent Palestinian Arab State in that area. When King Abdullah came to the Jericho Conference in December 1948, which was attended by Palestinian Arabs west of the Jordan River, he was crowned 'King of Palestine'. Abdullah, in fact, wanted to rename his country 'The Kingdom of Palestine'. King Hussein, in his memoirs, indicates clearly that Trans-Jordan was arbitrarily siphoned off from the rest of Mandated Palestine. Crown Prince Hassan of Jordan, in the Jordanian National Assembly on 2 February 1970, stated unambiguously: "Palestine is Jordan and Jordan is Palestine. The nation is one and the land is one…" [source, What Sharon Didn't Tell The United Nations, September 22, 2005, Arutz Sheva]

Undeterred by historical fact, the Muslim Brotherhood has, since Jews began migrating to what was to become the state of Israel in 1948, waged an unceasing  jihad against them.

In more recent times the MB has acted through the terrorist proxy army that it created, Hamas

To get some sense of the history, in 1948t the Grand Mufti of Egypt Sheikh Muhammad Mahawif declared a jihad against the Jews whom he maintained were occupiers of “Arab land.”

“…as Jews have taken a part of Palestine and there established their non-Islamic government and have also evacuated from that part most of its Muslim inhabitants… Jihad… to restore the country to its people, is the duty of all Muslims, not just those who can undertake it. And since all Islamic countries constitute the abode of every Muslim, the Jihad is imperative for both the Muslims inhabiting the territory attacked, and Muslims everywhere else because even though some sections have not been attacked directly, the attack nevertheless took place on a part of the Muslim territory which is a legitimate residence for any Muslim…” [speech by Andrew Bostom, Jew Hatred and Jihad--From Medina to Mumbai, December 7, 2008, as published by the New English Review]

So intense has been the cultivation of Jew hatred in the “Palestinian territories,” that even very young children, some not old enough to really speak [or have any idea as to what process they are being exposed] have been indoctrinated into the ideology of jihad. Palestinian schools [and many Arab schools throughout the world, for that matter] are essentially madrassahs with a purposeful curriculum designed to mold children into jihad waging mujahideen.robots.

Given this historical backdrop, today’s bellicose statement by the Muslim Brotherhood should be seen as a continuation of a process intended to further radicalize Muslims - stoking the religion’s age old, scripturally derived - hatred of the Jewish people in this beleaguered area of the world.

Issa Governmental Oversight Committee Prepares To Demolish Obama's Lies On Benghazi Attack
May 7, 2013 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews org - Tomorrow morning Darrell Issa's House Committee on Governmental Oversight will be gavelled into order.
Live coverage starts sy 11:30 AM EDT/8:30 PDT and can be followed, real-time, from  the below link:
Issa Hearings Link
Front and center at this event will be an exploration of exactly what transpired during the September 11, 2012 jihadist attack on our embassy in Benghazi, Libya.
To a degree some of the information which will be presented is already widely known among the handful whose business it is to follow national security developments.
For example, a piece we published on November 11, 2012 [see House Hearings: Obama's Failure In Benghazi] outlined the testimony, also before the Issa Committee, by State Department professionals which clearly demonstrated that the Benghazi Embassy was left essentially undefended prior to September 11 [despite constant please from embassy personnel, including the American Ambassador, Chris Stevens] and then abandoned after the attack commenced, leading to needless loss of life as well as a major blow to the image of the United States' military prowess.
"...Four witnesses were called to testify under oath.

They were:

Ms. Charlene R. Lamb, Deputy Assistant Secretary for International Programs, Bureau of Diplomatic Security, U.S. Department of State

Mr. Eric Nordstrom, Regional Security Officer, U.S. Department of State

Lt. Col. Andrew Wood, Utah National Guard , U.S. Army

Ambassador Patrick Kennedy, Under Secretary for Management, U.S. Department of State

There is one common thread which connects the testimony of these individuals, three of which are high ranking State Dept. officials.

All four of them testified that security at Benghazi was almost nonexistent, in the face of a constant threat posed by the political instability in Libya, post the overthrow and subsequent death of Muammar Gaddafi, the country's long-time dictator.

Regarding constant threats, the Heritage Foundation Foundry Blog assembled a revealing time-line demonstrating that before the September 11 deadly attack there were at least 12 serious security incidents relating to the embassy.

For example, a partial listing:

" April 6: IED thrown over the fence of the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi...May 1: British Embassy in Tripoli is attacked by a violent mob and set on fire. Other NATO embassies attacked as well... June 6: A large IED destroys part of the security perimeter of the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi. Creates hole “big enough for 40 men to go through...”

None of these attacks resulted in increased security.

As the gavel fell commencing the hearings the security posture at Benghazi was characterized by Lieutenant Colonel Andrew Wood - an active duty Army officer with 24 years of service in the Special Forces as follows:
"... I served as the Site Security Team (SST) Commander in Libya from 12 February to 14 August of this year, 2012... The SSTs mission was to support and answer to Chief of Mission in Libya. I worked directly for the Regional Security Officer. We provided Security Support, Medical Support, Communications Support for every facet of security that concerned the Embassy. ...In late spring, Police were allowed to return to work to help with traffic but were limited to that. Fighting between militias was still common when I departed. Some militias appeared to be degenerating into organizations resembling free lance criminal operations. Targeted attacks against westerners were on the increase. In June the Ambassador received a threat on Facebook with a public announcement that he liked to run around the Embassy compound in Tripoli... State Department's decision not to extend SST's security work beyond August 5th terminated our work in this capacity..."

Thus Colonel Wood made it clear that as a result of a State Dept. directive, the Embassy was left essentially defenseless, barely 30 days before the 9/11 anniversary. Because of the State Department's actions, the facility was actually made less, rather than more secure as September 11 approached.

"...The security in Benghazi was a struggle and remained a struggle throughout my time there. The situation remained uncertain and reports from some Libyans indicated it was getting worse. Diplomatic security remained weak. In April there was only one US diplomatic security agent stationed there. The RSO struggled to obtain additional personnel there but was never able to attain the numbers he felt comfortable with..."

The testimony of Ms. Lamb was equally damaging.

She noted that primary security duty was provided by post-revolutionary troops housed within the Embassy compound, "...The fourth building on the compound, the one closest to the gate, served as the barracks for members of the Libyan 17th February Brigade who were on the compound round the clock.."
But the hearings received little or no coverage by the MSM and hence the low-on-the-foodchain voters remained completely unaware of the damaging details surrounding Benghazi.
National security professionals, however were outraged by the coverup and the brazen lies coming out of TeamObama. In response a group of over 700 current and former members of the SPECOPS community drafted a leter to the U.S. House imploring them to get to the bottom of what is now obviously a coverup which could threaten Mr. Obama's presidency.
Below, some of the operative text of the letter which we used in constructing a piece published by PipeLineNews on April 9 [see, Why Did President Obama Refuse To Defend The Benghazi Embassy?]
"April 8, 2013

To: Members of The U.S. House of Representatives

Subject: The Benghazi attacks on 9/11/ 2012

The undersigned are a representative group of some 700 retired Military Special Operations professionals who spent the majority of their careers preparing for and executing myriad operations to rescue or recover detained or threatened fellow Americans. In fact, many of us participated in both the Vietnam era POW rescue effort, The Son Tay Raid, as well as Operation Eagle Claw, the failed rescue attempt in April of 1980 in Iran, so we have been at this for many years and have a deep passion for seeking the truth about what happened during the national tragedy in Benghazi.

The purpose of this letter is to encourage all members of the US House of Representatives to support H.Res. 36, which will create a House Select Committee on the Terrorist Attack in Benghazi. It is essential that a full accounting of the events of September 11, 2012, be provided and that the American public be fully informed regarding this egregious terrorist attack on US diplomatic personnel and facilities. We owe that truth to the American people and the families of the fallen.

It appears that many of the facts and details surrounding the terrorist attack which resulted in four American deaths and an undetermined number of American casualties have not yet been ascertained by previous hearings and inquiries. Additional information is now slowly surfacing in the media, which makes a comprehensive bipartisan inquiry an imperative. Many questions have not been answered thus far. The House Select Committee should address, at a minimum, the following questions:

Sixteen Questions Which Demand Answers:

1. Why was there no military response to the events in Benghazi?
a. Were military assets in the region available? If not, why not?
b. If so, were they alerted?
c. Were assets deployed to any location in preparation for a rescue or recovery attempt?
d. Was military assistance requested by the Department of State? If so, what type?
e. Were any US Army/Naval/USMC assets available to support the US diplomats in Benghazi during the attack?
f. What, if any, recommendations for military action were made by DOD and the US Africa Command?..."
Individual Congressmen have also been doggedly pursuing this matter with Virginia's Frank Wolf distinguishing himself  as a leader in attempting to  get to the bottom of what is by far the most serious security failure since September 11, 2001.
Tomorrow's key witnesses are as follows, and they are all from what was then Hillary Clinton's dysfunctional State Dept. [it hasn't improved since Mr. Kerry took the helm] so their knowledge of the events surrounding Benghazi should  be quite provocative..
Mr. Mark Thompson, Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Counterterrorism, US Department of State.
Mr. Gregory Hicks, Foreign Service Officer and former Deputy Chief of Mission/Chargé d’Affairs in Libya, US Department of State.
Mr. Eric Nordstrom, Diplomatic Security Officer and former Regional Security Officer in Libya, US Department of State.
We look forward with great interest to these hearings in hopes of further establishing the extent to which Mr. Obama's administration, on his behalf, engaged in an outlandish cover-up primarily designed to at least get him through the November election with the average knuckledragging voter none the wiser.
Below some of the relevant articles we have generated on this topic, as you can see, we have been on this since the day this tragic and completely avoidable, event took place.
