Panel Finds Americans Abandoned in Benghazi

From the story: “Until now the administration has led us to believe the military did not have assets, men, or machines close enough or ready enough to arrive in Benghazi in time to save lives,” Reps. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, and Mike Pompeo, R-Kansas, write. “An asset that could have made a difference would have been armed drones. And as the committee learned, it would have been relatively fast and easy to arm a drone” (Daily Signal).

Without Hesitation, Democrats Go After Guns

Using a terrorist attack to push for a quick passage of pet gun laws (Reuters).  Hillary, as expected, joined them (CNN).   Her campaign manager showed a remarkable lack of class (Daily Caller).   Some newspapers completely shed their attempt to feign objectivity (San Francisco Chronicle).  At the same time, some are urging the gay community to arm themselves (AOL).  From David French:  The gun-control debate is nothing more than a destructive distraction. Is there a single viable gun-control proposal of the last decade that would keep a committed jihadist from arming himself? Indeed, the gun-control debate keeps us from focusing on the true danger: a terrorist movement that’s learning how to attack a free society. It keeps us from focusing on the terrorists’ capabilities and motivations. It keeps us from asking the very hard questions about how to defeat a movement that’s based not just in a jihadist army that takes and holds territory but also in an ancient religious idea that has never gone away (National Review).

Prayers, Mourning, Politics Follow Orlando Terror Attack

The nightmare lasted three hours (ABC News).  The shooter had been investigated by the FBI and interviewed multiple times (Fox News).  More on that (Fox News).  Many stories note “Shortly before the attack, Mateen, who was born in New York to Afghan parents, called 911 and pledged allegiance to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi” (Daily Mail).  Some in the media are starting to realize ISIS is more than just a little unfriendly to gays (CNN).  From Robert Spencer:  The Left has chosen to protect Islam at all costs, even at the expense of its other victim groups. When the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI) several years ago ran ads highlighting the mistreatment of gays in Islamic law, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, which is its city council, issued a resolution condemning not that mistreatment, but our ads (Front Page Magazine). ISIS announced a threat to Florida three days ago (Gateway Pundit).  From the Wall Street Journal:  Can we finally drop the illusion that the jihadist fires that burn in the Middle East don’t pose an urgent and deadly threat to the American homeland? (WSJ). From John Podhoretz:  …we have an unmistakable indication that Obama finds it astonishingly easy to divorce himself from a reality he doesn’t like — the reality of the Islamist terror war against the United States and how it is moving to our shores in the form of lone-wolf attacks (NY Post).  In a strange opening statement, the Sacramento Bee notes the killing took place “days after the burial of the beloved American Muslim Muhammad Ali” (Sacramento Bee).  A former co-worker said Mateen’s employer refused to deal with his racist comments because he was Muslim (Fox News).  Facebook chose this tragedy to ban Pamela Geller’s Facebook page.  Odd, considering she’s criticizing those who support the attack (Breitbart).  Another story notes “Reddit moderators are actively banning users posting articles discussing Orlando nightclub terrorist Omar Mateen’s religion” (Daily Caller).  One Muslim group is calling for blood donors (ABC).  Politicians got political (Guardian).  From Dr. Michael Brown:  …before we politicize this massacre, we must grieve over it. May the Lord have mercy on the wounded and on the family members of those slain (Townhall).  More on the politics (ABC News).  More on Mateen (Florida Daily).  Mateen followed many of the gun laws (Breitbart).  The media joined the gun control call (Newsbusters).  One story notes “A coalition of civil rights groups planned to hold an event Monday attacking Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump for his rhetoric against Mexicans and Muslims, but cancelled it after 50 people were killed and at least 53 more wounded in a reported Islamic terrorist attack Sunday” (Daily Caller). From Russell Moore:  Let’s call our congregations to pray together. Let’s realize that, in this case, our gay and lesbian neighbors are likely quite scared. Who wouldn’t be? Demonstrate the sacrificial love of Jesus to them. We don’t have to agree on the meaning of marriage and sexuality to love one another and to see the murderous sin of terrorism. Let’s also pray for our leaders who have challenging decisions to make in the midst of crisis. Let’s mobilize our congregations and others to give blood for the victims. Let’s call for governing authorities to do their primary duty of keeping its people safe from evildoers (Russell Moore).  From Dr. Albert Mohler:  The Bible honors weeping with those who weep. A lot of our LGBT neighbors & their families are weeping now. Christians must weep with them (Twitter).  Related audio from President Obama and many others (SONNetwork).

Hillary’s Woman Card Not Working

Young women aren’t as enamored with her gender as she hoped.  But if gender is just a feeling, as Hillary now claims it is, who’s to say she’s a woman anyway?
