Appearing on Fox News Republican talk show “Hannity” Monday night, right-wing columnist Ann Coulter said she’s sad that not only does she think the Boston bombing should shut down the nation’s immigration reform debate, she would like to see the alleged bomber’s widow in jail too, not for committing a crime but for “wearing a hijab.”

“I don’t care if she knew about this,” Coulter said.“She ought to be in prison for wearing a hijab. This immigration policy of us, you know, assimilating immigrants into our culture isn’t really working. They’re assimilating us into their culture. Did she get a clitorectomy too?”

Fellow Republican talker Laura Ingraham said as much on Monday afternoon, suggesting that the U.S. shut down all immigration from majority Muslim nations.“I would submit that people shouldn’t be coming here as tourists from Chechnya after 9/11,” she said.“Dagistan, Checnya, Kergystan, uh-uh.

A car bomb has exploded outside the French embassy in the Libyan capital Tripoli, wounding two French guards and several residents.
The blast in Tripoli destroyed the embassy's ground-floor reception area and perimeter wall, as well as damaging neighbouring homes and shops.
French President Francois Hollande called on Libya to act swiftly over this "unacceptable" attack.
It is the first major attack on a foreign embassy in the Libyan capital.
I was certain Obama assured us he personally had the enemy on the run. Could have sworn he did.

Even if the UN Inspectors had gone into Iraq and determined there were absolutely no WMDs after the UN's "serious consequences" resolution and the Iraq War never happened, does anyone really believe Saddam wouldn't have immediately rebuilt his WMD program once the world was temporarily satisfied?
Were the UN Inspectors going to remain there or continue ongoing inspections indefinitely?
You're still chewing that bone?

That's why so many countries in Europe are struggling to stay afloat. They wanted "fairness" too until the government couldn't extract enough tax money anymore. France has already reached 75% and it still isn't enough.
But our beloved celebrities who worship Obama's idea of "fairness" are ever so happy to do their "fair share". Just wait until they have to fork over 75%.
This president wants big government by taxing everything that isn't nailed down. We've got four more years ahead. Unless more Americans snap out of it before November 2014.
That's right, but I have to think the vast majority of them believes they're exempt from any harm as long as they keep voting democrat.

The father of the two Boston bombing suspects has said he will fly from Russia to the US to seek “justice and the truth” this week, as federal investigators seek to interview the American wife of Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the elder Tsarnaev brother who was killed in a shootout with police.

In an interview on Sunday, Anzor Tsarnaev said he had “lots of questions” for police, and told the Associated Press he wants to “clear up many things”.

Well, the investigation is still ongoing. There are always the copycats as well. We always want to know the why, but perhaps they're just bad and evil. What did they hope to accomplish?
They seemed to be pretty ill prepared to escape. No money, no plan. Did they really think they could just resume normal life?
How delusional. Millions of photos were taken.
Yes they did. The young one even returned to campus and went to a party.They didn't plan on escape. They were going to bomb other things. Only thing that stopped them,IMO, was the canceling of events around the city.

House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) each said Monday that the Boston Marathon bombings should not scuttle efforts to pass comprehensive immigration reform.

"If we fix our immigration system, it may actually help us understand who all is here, why they're here and what legal status they have," Boehner said on Fox News.

Appearing at a church with Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.) in Chicago, Ryan argued that the Boston attacks should push Congress to redouble its efforts to modernize the immigration system.

"We have a broken immigration system, and if anything, what we see in Boston is that we have to fix and modernize our immigration system for lots of reasons," Ryan said. "National security reasons, economic security reasons. For all those reasons, we need to fix our broken immigration system."

Boehner's and Ryan's comments put them out of step with several Republican colleagues who have publicly declared that the Boston attacks highlight the need to be cautious about or even slow down immigration reform efforts.

Bill O'Reilly Defends CNN's 'Honest Mistake'(VIDEO)

Bill O'Reilly defended CNN on Monday against the torrent of criticism the network has received for its reporting error last week.

CNN and other outlets were forced to walk back their reporting on Wednesday after saying that a suspect had been taken into custody, when in fact, no arrest had been made.

On Monday night, O'Reilly asked Fox News contributor Bernie Goldberg if CNN deserved all the criticism it was getting. He referenced David Carr's column criticizing the network's coverage, and pointed out that Fox News, the Boston Globe and the Associated Press had also made the same mistake.

Goldberg acknowledged that covering breaking news "is not easy," and argued that CNN deserves "to take a hit, but only up to a point."

The contributor continued, "Not one reporter at CNN or Fox or any place else concocted these supposed facts. Not one reporter made stuff up in order to be a hero and get on the air with an exclusive."

"No, it was an honest mistake," O'Reilly agreed. "Absolutely an honest mistake." He went on to suggest that John King should have "outed" the source who gave him inaccurate information.

FOX, the defender of 'honest mistakes'.

Ceasing all further immigration is LONG overdue; no more room at the inn. As for jailing someone for what they are wearing (suicide vests excepted), that's just dumb (but I doubt she actually advocates that).
I'm betting Native Americans wished they said the same thing in 1492.

should we have shut down immigration in 1941 to Germans, Italians, Romanians, Japanese, Croats etc.

Nothing like stereotyping and blaming everyone of one religion for the action of a minority of extremists

but since you are okay with that, what about the actions of those christian extremists tat bomb clinics, assassinate doctors in church and protest the funerals of our fallen soldiers....

should we jail all christians that wear crosses, rosary beads and ban the immigration of all christians???

Perhaps, but plastering those photos everywhere was phenomenal. That showed how dumb they were.
