    I think Peter King should resign for fully supporting the dumbest war in US history in Iraq. He not only supported it but was the biggest cheerleader of sending 4500 US soldiers to their deaths over a lie. How can a buffoon like that still be in office when he is such an imbecile...

    Maybe if Pete King stops supporting the IRA types who refuse to recognize the "Good Friday Accords" I will consider listening to him.

    Hey CNN...WHY ISN'T THIS STORY FRONT PAGE NEWS?? BECAUSE YOU ARE HELPING TO RUN A CAMPAIGN TO RE-ELECT OBAMA! I can't believe I had to dig for ten minutes to find this story on your site. I'm so sick of dishonest and under reporting by you. Everyone who rails against 'faux news' should be raising their voice even louder against CNN and the other networks who are hiding the importance of this news.

    These are historic days ! It is a gesture of utmost magnanimity and generosity by "Muslim" Pakistan to continue to enable our American and NATO friends and allies to achieve common goals by offering their national resources and standing with them shoulder to shoulder. They and other muslims are our partners and we share a unified vision in addressing the challenges facing the world.

    Together we shall prevail, as we have done in the past while overcoming insurmountable odds. After all, the Americans and Pakistanis and muslims share common values and history in the struggle for their Independence and their fight for survival.
    God Speed. "In God We Trust".

      Have you showed your grienetg cards to a big company? I think you should do that because you need to be in stores. The cards are awesome but they are an impulse purchase. They have to be right there when someone is angry and also for people to see and remember for later when they need something like this. I think a lot of specialty stores will carry your cards. Nice work!

    I have reevaluated the thesis that "less is more" in a political context as applied to India and continue to agree with its premise. Although Mies Van Der Rohe adopted this in an architectural context, its economic and political connotations are indeed powerful. Empowering subjugated minorities in India by splitting it into smaller states would trigger Uber economic demand for western nations who have given so much financial and technological aid to India with no return to show for the investment. Central Asian States (CAS) are a case in point on this successful approach. We need to understand that India has an unmanageable large population mired in poverty and we are spinning our wheels trying to prop it up. Additionally, it is also too big of a geographical unit to govern. Americans now need to focus on its own people. A controlled implosion of India is now the call of the day. God Speed to all.

    Hinduism is a disgusting cult. Even to this day cross-cousin, father-daughter, mother-son, brother-sister, doing each other is common practice. Let me make it easy for you and refer you to the hindu scriptures and share it with the world. Shame on Hindus and barbaric Hinduism.

    Pushan is the lover of his sister [ Rg Ved VI.55.4 ][ Apte 11 ]
    The Ashvisns married Surya and Savitri who is their sister [ RV I.116.19 ].
    Agni is the son of his father and his sister [ Rg Ved.I.91.7 ]

    Something to ponder.....Quote:

    "It appears to me that Muslims are the fastest growing segment of world society today. As others are withering away the Muslims seem to be rising again with their contributions as was the case historically when they ruled India and Europe and left behind a legacy of science, art, architecture, culinary et al. One only needs to go to Spain and India to witness this. What really pleasantly surprised me was what I witnessed in the Middle East. A tolerant and progressive Islamic society that has come so far in a few years. Most importantly providing job and economic opportunities to all, Hindus/Indians, Jews, Christians, Muslims, Europeans, Americans, Africans, South Americans, Chinese, and Russians etc. Never have I witnessed such openness and equal opportunities unless you go back to the times of Muslim rule in India and Spain. My conclusion is that the Muslims get it. They are striving to once again take their leadership role in the world order and take this civilization to its next level of excellence. The climb to success and progress is not a linear curve but a stochastic one. Let us join in wishing our Muslim brethren well and much success in their endeavors. If we can't help them let's not pull the rug from under them."

    We actually did not "take over" Libya–remember there were not troops on the ground until after the tragedy. That is why diplomatic personnel are very sensitive about bringing in military personnel, especially after the invasion of Iraq, etc., and our perceived interference in the Mideast. I would rather have drones doing taking out terrorists than our young soldiers–and don't forget that our President has taken a lot of flack for his use of drones. Reading Israeli newspaper online will also allow you to see that Mr. Netanyahu is not that popular in his own country and people there do not want war, either. There really are no simple solutions, i.e., a "Fixer." Remember that the terrorist attack in Libya occurred at the same time as the protests against the film. The film protests DID actually occur, and have continued for days afterward. Bush lied and took us to war in Iraq. He and Cheney would not even testify under oath in the 9/11 investigation. Remember the August 6 Intelligence briefing about which Condoleeza Rice testified in the Congressional investigations–well before the 9/11 attack. Perhaps our memories are a little short.

    Susan is not the problem. She is part of prevailing culture that has a tendency to keep the populace in the dark. I will go as far as saying the media has been an accomplice in this endeavor. I am going to quote the following that I am sure Americans have every right to know particulalry those of Jewsih descent and of course Israelis.

    "It is no secret that Hitler and his Nazi cronies sought inspiration from Indian extremist groups including the branding of his Nazi Party by adopting the Swastika, a traditionally Hindu symbol and representation of Hindu god Ganesha, as its marketing tool. The thesis being that like the Norwegian massacre the Jewish holocaust orchestrated by Hitler was inspired by the inherently violent cult of Indian Hindus and the manifesto of its then extremist/terrorist groups still in existence today. These groups are now the successors to and carrying out the vision of Al Qaeda all over the world albeit in a clandestine manner."

    Let me quote another instance of this disgraceful disposition :

    It is no secret that Mahatma Gandhi (Hindu leader) was a pedophile. What is very disturbing is his relationship (!) and friendship with Hitler. He is known to have offered advice and encouragement to Hitler and his Nazi Party to undertake the Jewish Holocaust."

    A few months ago an auction was being arranged in Europe of Gandhi's letters and other artifacts corroborating the foregoing. Appartently, the Indian government with assistance from expatriate Indian businessmen muscled the auctioneers and put a stop to this auction.

        @Amit. If the hindus loved the Jews so much why did Gandhi befriend Hitler and wrote him letters encouraging him to continue with the jewsish holocaust? It is all on record. Why don't you research and report back to us. While doing so also look into what the Indian government (Brahmins mostly.....btw does Brahim/Aryan/Hitler connection ring a bell?) did to all the artefacts and letters of Gandhi that they hijacked from the auction in Europe?

        The Jews and Israelis are onto the charade the Indian Hindus and the Indian Government have and continue to play with them. You can fool them them a few times but not forever.

      Gandhi's steamy letters to Kallenbach are well known. Those to underage boys also exist. So are those to Hitler. For the life of me I can't understand why a "so called" peaceful man would befriend a devil like Hitler !!!!!!!!! And that also for encouraging the holocaust.... Shame on Gandhi.

    The facts of the Libya murders are that the Ambassador was kidnapped, tortured for 12 hours, killed, and then his body
    dragged thru the streets behind a car. How far will this administration mislead us to protect the terrorists behind this
    violence. All the promises Obama is making, sound like echos of 2008. I voted for him in 2008 cause I believed he
    was exactly what this country needed. He is repeating the same promises, and has not kept his 2008 promises. Wake
    up America, and lets put a "fixer" in the white house.

    Susan Rice Must Go. It’s no simple matter. It’s just incomprehensible that people entrusted with America’s Security had been misleading us even as the Libyans themselves have said the movie had nothing to do with the well planned & coordinated attack, and killing of our Ambassador. I am not sure how many of you have seen the gruesome footage of the Ambassador’s body being dragged on the streets of Benghazi which was shown on FOX, but shunned by the liberal media. There is no point censoring such things even if they are gory, AMERICANS HAVE EVERY RIGHT TO KNOW WHAT’s GOING ON.

    I had myself been an Obama supporter but am increasingly jittery of a Obama 2nd term given his responses to the recent Muslim violence, his treatment of Israel, and in the light of what he told Russian President (now PM) Medvedev that he will have greater leverage in a 2nd term with no more elections to fight!

    Having said that the GREATEST MUSLIM APOLOGIST ) who's Hoodwinking Americans & (Mis) guiding Pres. Obama is CNN's Mr. FAREED ZAKARIA, a covert SUPPORTER OF RADICAL ISLAM. It’s suicidal for America’s security to induct him into the US govt., in any role, let alone the role of the “US Security of State” as the Obama administration seems to be pondering.

    Remember his INFAMOUS words “"The Danger comes from us (the US) and NOT them (Al-Qaeda & Muslim radicals).

    Ref: Reflections on 9/11 and its Aftermath” CNN-GPS Sept 9th, 2011.

    http://globalpublicsquare.blogs.cnn.com/2011/09/09/fareed-zakaria-september-11/?hpt=wo_r1

    So, if any one has any doubts about which way US policy to the Muslim world is headed???????????????????

    Just imagine the HEIRARCHY!

    1) PRESIDENT – Mr. Barack HUSSAIN Obama

    2) US SEC. OF STATE: The DECEITFUL Islamist Mr. Fareed Zakaria (as it's strongly rumored to be...if Obama wins re-election).

    3) US AMABASSADOR TO THE OIC (Organization of Islamic Conference): MB terrorist supporter RASHAD HUSSAIN (another fellow Indian Muslim like Mr. Zakaria!)

    4) US GOODWILL AMBASSADOR TO THE MUSLIM WORLD: IMAM RAUF (Imam of the 9/11 CARDOBA VICTORY MOSQUE- Decietfully renamed – Interfaith Center to tide over New Yorker's opposition!)

    5) DY. CHIEF OF STAFF at the US STATE DEPT – HUMA ABEIDIN – Daughter of MB activist Saleha Mahmood Abedin

    GOD SAVE AMERICA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I felt sorry for her until I found out that they all knew within hours that it was a terrorist attack. They lied to us. What Rice did though was follow orders.... And you will never convince that those orders weren't from the very top. Also, the only place I'm able to get the story of this cover-up is Fox.... Why isn't CNN doing an investigative report on this one....??? It's huge and you are not dong your job.

    For an ambassador, to all nations, Ms. Rice certainly represents the "pit bull" side of the Obama administration. I don't think I've ever heard her speak a pleasant word about anything. She obviously does a good job...but......
