The Defense Department violated U.S. law by failing to alert Congress before releasing five Taliban members held at Guantanamo Bay military prison in exchange for a captured U.S. soldier, a government watchdog agency said on Thursday.
The Government Accountability Office said the Pentagon broke the law by using money appropriated by Congress to carry out the transfer of Guantanamo prisoners without giving lawmakers the required 30-day notice.
"In addition, because DoD (the Department of Defense) used appropriated funds to carry out the transfer when no money was available for that purpose, DoD violated the Antideficiency Act" barring agencies from spending more than authorized, the GAO said in a letter posted on its website.

Fox News host Megyn Kelly was furious on Tuesday night when producers interrupted her conversation about the beheading of kidnapped journalist James Foley with video of breaking coverage of Ferguson, Mo.

Kelly was discussing Foley's tragic death at the hands of terrorist group ISIS with Fox contributor Pete Hegseth when the full-screen video of Ferguson ran. Kelly abruptly paused the conversation to vent at her producers.

"Hold on. I realize — can, just, just — I realize something’s happening in Ferguson, but we’re talking about something important here, so can you at least split-screen the video?" she said.

Then, staring directly at the camera, Kelly continued to express her frustration.

"I realize — look, the protesters and the police are clashing again, alright? They’re clashing again. But we’re talking about the dead, the death of an American, of an American who was beheaded, and Pete deserves his say."

Latest Right Wing Excuse For Their Contemptible Racism: Unsubstantiated Claims That The Murderer Has An "Orbital Blowout Fracture of the Eye Socket"

Before being hustled out of town, Wilson had none of the symptoms of the orbital blowout fracture right-wingers are now claiming. "Also," notes Johnson, "no ambulance was called for Wilson, and no first aid was administered by other officers, which seems odd if he had indeed suffered this type of serious injury-- or any injury at all."

You really are a silly girl. You obviously don't get the part about law and order. This was an action carried out by an Executive Branch agency. You seem to think government agencies can violate law simply because of political reasons. IRS come to mind airhead? Justice Department? FBI? Anarchy is OK?

You are a defective unit.

(Reuters)- The sophistication, wealth and military might of Islamic State militants represent a major threat to the United States that may surpass that once posed by al Qaeda, U.S. military leaders said on Thursday.

"They are an imminent threat to every interest we have, whether it's in Iraq or anywhere else," Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel told reporters at the Pentagon.

Hagel's assessment of Islamic State, which gained strength during Syria's civil war and swept into northern Iraq earlier this summer, sounded a note of alarm several days after the group posted a video on social media showing one of its fighters beheading an American hostage kidnapped in Syria.

Asked if the hardline Sunni Muslim organization posed a threat to the United States comparable to that of the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, Hagel said it was "as sophisticated and well-funded as any group we have seen."

"They are beyond just a terrorist group. They marry ideology, a sophistication of ... military prowess. They are tremendously well-funded. This is beyond anything we've seen."

==========

ISIL is clearly not JV status terrorist group like President Obama claimed to the American People his decisions allowing this group to function unimpeded in Syria for months then as they grew and became better trained, better equipped, much better financed they invade Iraq and became much stronger and immensely better financed. Equipment left to the Iraqi government was captured and is now being used against Iraqi People.

Allowing ISIS to grow unimpeded for a year before President Obama finally decided to act on a very limited basis has put Iraq is danger of total collapse, put energy supplies which the world depends on in jeopardy all is counter productive to American interest in that region. But it's more than counter-productive it's now a national security issue for the world and especially America.

ISIS now has the ability to reach out and touch any American who travels for work overseas, any American who dares to take a family vacation in a foreign country. The world can lay the blame of our new global reality at the doorstep of the resident who lives on 1600 Pennslyvania Avenue, Washington, D.C.

Well looks like Obama's mission to save some Americans from ISIS hostage crisis... Looks like we will see some more Americans in orange suits getting their heads cut off!!!
We really need to send troops in and wipe them out. Generals said today that air strikes are not enough!
Obama said ISIS was a JV terror group but sec Hagel says that they are very well funded by Islamists in other nations ( England, US, Germany, France, Indonesia and other Islamic nations )
They are right here in our nation, but let's try to understand them. Let's find out why they're mad. Why can't we all get along? Love is the answer... Peace at any cost. Go ahead and convert from Christianity to Islam because if you don't they're going to cut off your head, so be spineless and gutless...
Either way we will be fighting them and if you turn your back on Jesus he won't know you when it's judgement time... Good night and ponder on that!!
Magic Negro started pot his Presidency as a 15 year old Community Organizer Boy.

But he's matured over the intervening years and now he's acting more like a 16 year old Community Organizer Boy.

HOW LONG WILL THE SHEEP FOLLOW THE BLIND SHEPPARD?
A message to the American government and their sheep like citizens:
We have left you alone since your disgraceful defeat in Iraq. We did not interfere in your country or attack your citizens while they were safe in their homes despite our capability to do so!
As for the scum of your society who are held prisoner by us, THEY DARED TO ENTER THE LION’S DEN AND WHERE EATEN!
You were given many chances to negotiate the release of your people via cash transactions as other governments have accepted,
We have also offered prisoner exchanges to free the Muslims currently in your detention like our sister Dr Afia Sidiqqi, however you proved very quickly to us that this is NOT what you are interested in.
You have no motivation to deal with the Muslims except with the language of force, a language you were given in “Arabic translation” when you attempted to occupy the land of Iraq!
Now you return to bomb the Muslims of Iraq once again, this time resorting to Arial attacks and “proxy armies”, all the while cowardly shying away from a face-to-face confrontation!
Today our swords are unsheathed towards you, GOVERNMENT AND CITIZENS ALIKE! AND WE WILL NOT STOP UNTILL WE QUENCH OUR THIRST FOR YOUR BLOOD.
You do not spare our weak, elderly, women or children so we will NOT spare yours!
You and your citizens will pay the price of your bombings!
The first of which being the blood of the American citizen, James Foley!
He will be executed as a DIRECT result of your transgressions towards us!
