US jury convicts Blackwater guards in 2007 killing of Iraqi civilians.
Security guards for private US contractor guilty of manslaughter for notorious 2007 incident that left 17 dead in Baghdad

Three security guards working for the private US contractor Blackwater have been found guilty of the manslaughter of a group of unarmed civilians at a crowded Baghdad traffic junction in one of the darkest incidents of the Iraq war.

A fourth, Nicholas Slatten, was found guilty of one charge of first-degree murder. All face the likelihood of lengthy prison sentences after unanimous verdicts on separate weapons charges related to the incident. Lawyers for the guards say they plan to appeal.

The Nisour Square massacre in 2007 left 17 people dead and 20 seriously injured after the guards working for the US State Department fired heavy machine guns and grenade launchers from their armoured convoy in the mistaken belief they were under attack by insurgents.

But attempts to prosecute the guards have previously foundered because of a series of legal mistakes by US officials, and the case had attracted widespread attention in Iraq as a symbol of apparent American immunity.

Now, after a 10-week trial and 28 days of deliberation, a jury in Washington has found three of the men – Paul Slough, Evan Liberty and Dustin Heard – guilty of a total of 13 charges of voluntary manslaughter and a total of 17 charges of attempted manslaughter.

The fourth defendant, Slatten, who was alleged to have been first to open fire, was found guilty of a separate charge of first-degree murder. Slough, Liberty and Heard were found guilty of using firearms in relation to a crime of violence, a charge which can alone carry up to a 30-year mandatory sentence.

Prosecutors had claimed Slatten, the convoy’s sniper, viewed killing Iraqis as “payback for 9/11” and often “deliberately fired his weapon to draw out return fire and instigate gun battles” or tried to smash windscreens of passing cars as his convoy rolled through Baghdad.

Jeremy Ridgeway, another member of the convoy known as Raven 23, pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter in 2008 and agreed to testify against his colleagues in exchange for a more lenient sentence.

Although jurors failed to reach a verdict on three of the manslaughter and attempted manslaughter charges relating to Dustin Heard, he was found guilty of the remaining 17, and the near clean-sweep will be seen as overwhelming endorsement of the government’s case that the massacre was unlawful.

Prosecutors told the jury that Slatten triggered the incident by shooting the occupants of a civilian car during a traffic jam at a busy roundabout in Baghdad. As the car rolled forward, other members of the convoy of three armoured vehicles opened fire indiscriminately with heavy weapons claiming they thought they were under attack from an attempted car bombing.

The case hinged on whether or not the defendants’ belief that their convoy was under attack could be justified by limited evidence apparent to them at the time.

Their lawyers focued on the allegedly erratic behavior of one of the vehicles at the junction and evidence of AK-47 bullet casings found nearby, which some witnesses claimed they heard being fired toward the convoy.

Nevertheless, during the trial’s emotional closing arguments, jurors were told of the “shocking amount of death, injury and destruction” that saw “innocent men, women and children mowed down” as they went about their business in downtown Baghdad.

Federal prosecutor Anthony Asuncion said: “These men took something that did not belong to them: the lives of 14 human beings. They were turned into bloody bullet-riddled corpses at the hands of these men.”

“It must have seemed like the apocalypse was here,” said Asuncion in his closing argument, as he described how many were shot in the back, at long range, or blown up by powerful grenades used by the US contractors.

“There was not a single dead insurgent on the scene,” claimed the prosecutor. “None of these people were armed.”

After he described at length the harrowing fate of individual Iraqi civilians attacked by the Blackwater convoy, Asuncion’s voice was shaking, and he was asked to repeat a key line for the court stenographer to hear. “[The witness] opened the door and his son’s brains fell out at his feet,” Asuncion shouted the second time. “As [the witness] put it, ‘the world went dark for me’.”

Dozens of witnesses and relatives from Iraq were flown over for the trial, some showing jurors the scars on their bodies and giving evidence that caused one juror to be recused after she said she could no longer sleep at night.

Prosecutors also recapped evidence from Blackwater colleagues who testified against the accused, claiming they acted with contempt for Iraqi civilians and boasted of turning “a guy’s head into a canoe” and “popping his grape”.

Earlier in the trial, these witnesses had spoken of telling the accused to “cease-fucking-fire” after the attack, which one described as “the most horrible botched thing I have ever seen in my life”.

But defence attorneys argue the men were acting in legitimate self-defence after suspecting a car that was rolling toward them at a busy traffic intersection could contain a bomb.

Blackwater – renamed first Xe Services and then Academi after the incident saw it thrown out of Iraq and dubbed a mercenary force by a United Nations report – reached a civilian settlement on behalf of six of the victims in 2012 and paid an undisclosed sum in compensation.

FBI investigators who visited the scene in the following days described it as the “My Lai massacre of Iraq” – a reference to the infamous slaughter of civilian villagers by US troops during the Vietnam war – in which only one soldier convicted.

Nevertheless, the first attempt to bring the case to trial was thrown out by a judge after it emerged that State Department investigators had promised the defendants that statements made after the attack and leaked to the media would not be used against them in court.

In an unusual political intervention, vice-president Joe Biden promised the US would pursue a fresh prosecution during a trip to Iraq and an appeal court later ruled these errors in witness interviews did not sufficiently taint the evidence to prevent a trial.

Nevertheless, prosecutors were still forced to drop manslaughter charges against Slatten because they had mistakenly exceeded the statute of limitations during the wrangling, and had to pursue tougher charges against him instead because there was no time limit for murder.

The 14 victims killed by the Blackwater guards on trial were listed as Ahmed Haithem Ahmed Al Rubia’y, Mahassin Mohssen Kadhum Al-Khazali, Osama Fadhil Abbas, Ali Mohammed Hafedh Abdul Razzaq, Mohamed Abbas Mahmoud, Qasim Mohamed Abbas Mahmoud, Sa’adi Ali Abbas Alkarkh, Mushtaq Karim Abd Al-Razzaq, Ghaniyah Hassan Ali, Ibrahim Abid Ayash, Hamoud Sa’eed Abttan, Uday Ismail Ibrahiem, Mahdi Sahib Nasir and Ali Khalil Abdul Hussein.

WHY NBC GOT RID OF THE FUNNIEST MAN ON LATE NIGHT TV - JAY LENO 
News is leaking out from Hollywood executives in-the-know that the Obama White House had been leaning on, pressuring executives at NBC for the last two years to replace Jay Leno because the comedian was criticizing President Obama every night. Obama didn't like it and considered it a racist attack on him. 
Since his inauguration in Jan. 2009 Obama had enjoyed three years of very, very friendly routines from all the late night comics on ABC, CBS, and  Leno at NBC - there was no criticism at all. 
But after data came to light that $100's of millions had been spent on First Family vacations during a recession, Mrs. Obama's unpopular new laws that changed food in America's schools and other negative news including the disastrous ObamaCare rollout & website mess, Jay Leno took his comedy to a different level and his ratings skyrocketed - none of the other comics were so bold. 
THESE ONE-LINERS MIGHT BE THE REASON NBC GOT RID OF THE FUNNIEST MAN ON LATE NIGHT 
Of course NBC was on board when Jay Leno went after Republican George W. Bush every night for 8 years but they couldn't stomach the fact that Leno's jokes about Obama were always right on target about the first black president...and left-leaning Democrat executives at NBC were being harassed by Obama himself who thought the comedy was a racist attack on him. 
GOLDEN OLDIES FROM JAY: 
"I was going to start off tonight with an Obama joke, but I don't want to get audited by the IRS." 
On NSA surveillance:
"We wanted a president who listens to all Americans - now we have one."
 On a new IRS commissioner:
"He's called 'acting commissioner' because he has to act like the scandal doesn't involve the White House."
 On closing the Guantanamo prison for terrorists:
"If he really wants to close it, turn it into a government-funded solar power company. The doors will be shut in a month." 
Concerning the Benghazi, Associated Press, and IRS scandals:
"Remember in the old days when President Obama's biggest embarrassment was Joe Biden?"
 On Obama saying he didn't know about the IRS scandal:
"He was too busy not knowing anything about Benghazi to not know anything about the IRS." 
The White House has a new slogan about Benghazi :
"Hope and change the subject." 
"It's casual Friday, which means that at the White House, they're casually going through everybody's phone calls and records." 
"It is not looking good for President Obama. Today his teleprompter took the fifth." 
"Fox News has changed its slogan from 'Fair and Balanced' to 'See, I told you so!'" 
On Obama's commencement address:
"He told the young graduates their future is bright unless, of course, they want jobs." 
On a Chicago man who set a record for riding a Ferris wheel:
"The only other way to go around and around in a circle that many times is to read the official report on Benghazi."
 On White House claims of ignorance on the scandals:

If you ever want to see real thug-style politics, look no further than the current administration. From day one Mr. Obama has told us that lobbyists would not be welcomed in Washington D.C. and that cronyism would not be tolerated. But as I’ve said before, this White House has no real grasp of the English language with confusing language like; “if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor” or “I will not sign healthcare legislation that will add one dime to our deficit” or “I refuse… to let Detroit go bankrupt”?

Remember the election 2012. It was a very tight election. Things were not too solid for “El Presidente.” The IRS issue, Benghazi, and the economy not close to the 2% index needed to keep us at the misery level we were at. Unemployment numbers were not good but not that bad after being miraculously adjusted for the 38th month in a row. Remember coming into that election we had a 9/11 anniversary attack where 4 Americans were killed. (With the official account stating that locals were mad about a movie made in America against Mohammed and that sparked an event that only happened to be on 9/11.) Also remember, coming into that election the IRS incident happened because of 2 rogue agents in Ohio. Blah blah blah!

After “early voting,” “late registration,” and “night of voting” registration states reported the election outcome with many precincts having over 100% turnout. Yes, it’s true! Several states reporting the extraordinarily high voter turnout also reported that nearly 100% of those votes were for Mr. Obama! (Almost as miraculous as the real Immaculate Conception!)

As it goes, those on the Left did not cry foul, saying only that the people had spoken. Those on the Right said it’s blatant voter fraud. And the reality is, over the past 2 years they have been proving it was voter fraud precinct by precinct (to be covered in a future piece).

So with all the “work” it took to get elected, I am sure the president needed to payback a few of his workers.

Let’s start off with his latest appointment, the “Ebola Czar” Ron Klain. Mr. Klain has 30 years in the medical arena, having managed many hospitals and emergency disaster readiness programs across the country. (INSERT LOUD BUZZER SOUND HERE) Wrong! It’s what you might expect (and hope) to see on a person’s resume who is responsible for implementing the processes and procedures by which Ebola can be tracked in this country and around the globe. Track how and how easily it’s moving. Implement the procedures to contain it or even prevent it from spreading. How about working with the CDC and State Department to make sure we slow it down or maybe even stop it from entering this country again? You would think so. But, hey, as usual, El Presidente knows better.

Mr. Klain is a political hack. He worked as Chief of Staff for Joe Biden at one time and also worked for AL Gore. (Maybe Ebola is the result of climate change?) He, as is the case with most czars and appointees from this administration, has no real experience in the area he is to be assigned to. Not to worry! Mr. Klain will be reporting to none other than Susan Rice.

In appointing Mr. Klain, Obama will effectively bypass another official, Dr. Nicole Lurie, who has served as Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR) at the Department of Health and Human Services since July 2009. She obviously didn’t contribute enough!

Let’s jump to his failed pick for the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division, Debo Adegbile. This was the first time the Democrat-controlled senate refused to push through one of his choices, even they pushed back and said no way. And saying Adegbile is unqualified was an understatement.

Adegbile drew major opposition from national law enforcement organizations, as well as, what can be only attributed to divine intervention from the almighty, a bipartisan group of senators for his involvement with Mumia Abu-Jamal, who was convicted of killing Philadelphia police officer Daniel Faulkner in 1981. Adegbile previously worked for and was very active with the NAACP’s Legal Defense Fund. The NAACP worked hard to overturn Abu-Jamal’s death sentence.

Mr. Obama was appalled that unfair character attacks were levied against Mr. Adegbile and called the failed vote a “travesty.” He referred to Mr. Adegbile as “a good and qualified public servant.” Well, Mr. Obama, even your own team members felt you again were way off on this one. He came out later to say, “those who voted against his nomination denied the American people an outstanding public servant.” Does this mean he holds people who defend cold-blooded cop killers in high esteem? Just asking!

What about his ambassador nominations? It’s a well-known fact inside the Beltway that Mr. Obama hands these out like $5 Starbucks cards at a PTA raffle. If you’ve helped bundle money in any way for Mr. Obama one of your rewards could easily be an ambassadorship, not to Iraq or Iran or Russia, but a more desirable place like Norway. Remember George Tsunis, the man who the president nominated saying he would represent us well? Mr. Tsunis couldn’t make it out of the hearing room! When is the president going to fire his vetting team? Never mind. He doesn’t have one. It’s him.

Mr. Tsunis proved he doesn’t know when to quit. He knew almost no facts about Norway, its form of government, population, land mass, or economy. He knew nothing about how it’s governed or it’s politics. Later we would find out that he never evened Googled the place to get basic information nor had he ever been there. He literally knew nothing about its people. Nothing! His only qualification was that he was a money bundler for Mr. Obama. As a side note, a few Norwegian legislators nominated Edward Snowden for a Nobel Peace Prize, a completely unqualified person, as a show of distain for this president. You have to be pretty bad to get the Norwegians mad.

As I always say, this president couldn’t find the truth, if you put it in a bag, marked it “TRUTH”, put both of his hands on it, and told him what was in it. He still wouldn’t use it.

We have an election coming up and once again the president is doing damage control on the “smoking gun” issues to save his party’s butt. The Bergdahl report is done, but it won’t be released until after the election. ObamaCare premiums, the new ones, the real ones, won’t be published until after the election. His choice for Attorney General, interestingly enough, though he has one in mind, won’t be released until after the election.

Can we please explain to this president the real meaning of “transparency”? Maybe someone could send him some real “I Love America” pills?

He won’t protect us against Ebola. He appoints unqualified people to positions of authority and importance. He won’t give the American people real information so they can make completely informed decisions about who they elect. And he keeps slapping our overseas allies in the face by trying to push political cronies on them as Ambassadors.

We have an election coming up. I have some “real hope” for “real change.” Let’s make America strong again and elect people who will act in the best interest of our country and actually tell us the truth for a change!

Almost As Smart As Joe Biden

Harvard educated First Lady Michelle Obama reminded attendees of a

naturalization ceremony Wednesday that the Founding Fathers weren't

born in America . The ceremony for 50 new U.S. citizens was held at the

National Archives in Washington , D.C

She said during her speech, referring to the Declaration of

Independence , "It's amazing that just a few feet from here where I'm

standing are the signatures of the 56 Founders who put their names on

a Declaration that changed the course of history, and like the 50 of

you, none of them were born American - they became American."

Excuse me?  Did she actually mean that those who signed the

Declaration of Independence and participated in the drafting of the

Constitution were not born in America ?   Benjamin Franklin was born in

Pennsylvania and Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, and James

Madison were born in Virginia .  John Adams was born in Massachusetts .

Only eight of the 56 were not born in America . Surely she knew this.

But, then again, maybe not.  After all, she is a Harvard graduate. Isn't she?

"Life's tough. It's tougher when you're stupid"

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month -- Did you know:

VAWA was drafted by the office of Senator Joe Biden (D-DE), with support from a broad coalition of advocacy groups. The Act passed through Congress with bipartisan support in 1994, clearing the United States House of Representatives by a vote of 235–195 and the Senate by a vote of 61–38, although the following year House Republicans attempted to cut the Act's funding.

Obama Finally Appoints “Ebola Czar,” Most Notable for What He Doesn’t Know

President Obama has finally decided to appoint an “Ebola Czar” to coordinate the response of the federal government to the looming health crisis posed by the deadly virus. His choice is Democratic operative Ron Klain, who has extensive background in politics and administration, but absolutely no healthcare experience. On Thursday, the President spoke to CNN and explained his choice:

It may make sense for us to have one person … so that after this initial surge of activity, we can have a more regular process just to make sure that we’re crossing all the T’s and dotting all the I’s going forward.

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest added more details to the President’s announcement:

I think what you can assume Mr. Klain’s role will be is an important, high-level implementation role. Ultimately it will be his responsibility to make sure that all the government agencies who are responsible for aspects of this response, that their efforts are carefully integrated. He will also be playing a role in making sure the decisions get made.

Klain was previously Chief of Staff to Vice Presidents Al Gore and Joe Biden. Since 2011, he has worked as president of Case Holdings, a private holding company that manages the assets of AOL co-founder Steve Case.

Despite his lack of background in medicine, some observers believe Klain’s managerial skills are the most important qualification for the position. CNN commentator David Gergen, who has served as a presidential advisor, said of Klain,

He’s strong. He’s very tough. It’s important in this job to be a coordinator; you have to knock heads together. He’s tough enough to do that.

Washington Democrats applauded the President’s choice, coming as it does just before the midterm elections. The New York Times reports one official quoted one party official, who wished to remain anonymous:

He’ll control the message better than most people would, which is really important from an economic standpoint, from a health standpoint, but it’s also important from a political perspective.

Klain will be reporting to national security adviser Susan Rice and Obama’s homeland security adviser Lisa Monaco.

The administration has been under fire for failing to be proactive in its response to the Ebola epidemic. The Centers for Disease Control have been widely criticized for the inadequacy of preparation in hospitals as well as the nation’s transit system. Some lawmakers are advocating a travel ban on West African nations, but the President has thus far been opposed to that step.
