Terrorist Suicide Bomb Kills Christians at Pakistan Church: 60 People Killed & More than 120 Injured Including Women and Children Following Twin Suicide Bomb Blasts in Qissa Khawani Bazaar of Peshawar
Because Islam is a religion of Peace …
So where is the outrage that Christan are being killed in Muslim countries? The LA Times is reporting that a pair of suicide bombers detonated their explosives outside a historic church in northwestern Pakistan on Sunday, killing over 60 people in the deadliest-ever attack on the country’s Christian minority. The NY Times is reporting 75 people are dead as the cowardly suicide bombers detonated their bombs as as worshipers left the All Saints Church in the old quarter of the regional capital, Peshawar.
The bombing in Peshawar, which wounded 120 people, underlines the threat posed by Islamic extremists as the government seeks a peace deal with domestic Taliban militants. It will likely intensify criticism from those who believe that negotiating peace with militants is a mistake.
The blasts killed more than 60 people and wounded 120, said Arshad Javed, top health official at the hospital in Peshawar where the victims were being treated. The dead included several women and children, said Sher Ali Khan, another doctor at the hospital.
The number of casualties was so high that the hospital was running out of caskets for the dead and beds for the wounded, said Mian Iftikhar Hussain, a former information minister of surrounding Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province who was on the scene.
“What have we done wrong to these people’” asked one of the wounded, John Tariq, referring to the attackers. “Why are we being killed?”
PESHAWAR: At least 60 people were killed and more than 120 including women and children were injured in twin suicide blasts in Qissa Khawani bazaar of Peshawar, Geo News reported.
Sources said suicide bombers blew themselves up outside Kohati gate near the Pakistan Church.
Law Enforcement Agencies (LEAs) have cordoned off the area after the blast.
Chief Executive Leady Reading Hospital (LRH) has confirmed killing of 56 people in the blasts.
Emergency has been declared in the LRH.
The eyewitnesses said the worshipers were leaving the Church when the blast occurred. More than 500 people were present in the Church at the time of suicide attack.
Decimated Al-Qaeda? Georgia Sen. Saxby Chambliss … “the Threats are Very Reminiscent of What We saw Pre-9/11.” … “the Most Serious … I’ve Seen in a Number of Years.”
My what a difference an Obama presidential reelection year makes … Wasn’t Al-Qaeda decimated? … At least this time Obama did not blame Embassy closings on a video tape.
As reported by FOX News, Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R-GA), the top Republican on the Senate Intelligence Committee, said on the Sunday talk show ‘Meet the Press’ that that the threats are “very reminiscent of what we saw pre-9/11″ and the threats as “the most serious … I’ve seen in a number of years.”
The US State Department has now extended the closings of Embassies across the Middle East and North Africa, , as the terror threat across the region remained high through the final days of Ramadan. So how is it that a decimated Al-Qaeda caused the United States to shut down embassies and go on high alert?
Capitol Hill lawmakers, including top-ranking members of intelligence committees, on Sunday described the terror threat that closed 22 U.S. embassies and consulates across the Muslim region as the most serious one since before the 9/11 attacks and related to specific act or plot.
If I had plans to travel to certain places in the Middle East, I would probably go ahead and cancel them,” he said.
Rooney’s comments followed Georgia Sen. Saxby Chambliss, the top Republican on the Senate Intelligence Committee, telling NBC’s “Meet the Press” that the threats are “very reminiscent of what we saw pre-9/11.”
He also described the threats as “the most serious … I’ve seen in a number of years.”
But wait … Didn’t the Obamamessiah tell us during the 2012 Presidential campaign at stump speech after stump speech that Al-Qaeda was decimated and on the run? Barack Obama tried to portray us as some savior of America and that he had defeated Al-Qaeda. But of course with the Lying King, it was all rhetoric and misrepresentations as to what was really going on in the Middle East and terrorism. Obama told us that Al-Qaeda was on the path to death and yet then Benghazi happened. Obama boasted that Al-Qaeda was on the path to defeat and on the run, yet by the looks of the two dozen US Embassies and Consulates closed, nothing could be further from the truth. Barack Obama, the “Campaigner” in Chief would do and say anything to get reelected no matter what. He knows nothing about leadership, it was about being reelected.
Can we just come out and say the obvious … HE LIED!!!

Al Qaeda Deputy Leader Abu Yahya al-Libiwon’t be down for breakfast …
A CIA drone strike in Pakistan has taken out yet another top Al Qaeda terrorist. Al Qaeda’s deputy leader Abu Yahya al-Libi was killed and has dealt yet another blow to the bad guys. Thankfully Obama inherited the CIA drone program from the Bush Administration.
A Central Intelligence Agency drone strike in Pakistan’s tribal belt killed Al Qaeda’s deputy leader, Abu Yahya al-Libi, American officials said on Tuesday, dealing another blow to the group in a lawless area that has long been considered the global headquarters of international terrorism but the importance of which may now be slipping.
Mr. Libi’s death would be another dramatic moment for an American covert war in Pakistan that has been particularly active over the past year, starting with the death of the group’s founder, Osama bin Laden, in May 2011 and followed up by drone strikes against several senior lieutenants, including Atiyah Abd al-Rahman.
NRO brings up an interesting point, “This comes on the tail of concerns about the efficacy of the U.S.’s intense campaign of drone strikes. No one doubts that drones are putting plenty of warheads on foreheads, but questions have arisen about whether the civilian casualties and loss of U.S. reputation ..” How often has anyone really heard the MSM questioning the drone attacks or the collateral damage of civilians killed? Almost never. However, that was hardly the case under George W. Bush and even criticism from then Senator Barack Obama. Imagine was GWB could have done without the constant harping from Obama, Democrats and the MSM questioning every drone strike.
The beheaded body of British aid worker Khalil Rasjed Dale was found dumped along a road side in the southern Baluchistan province of Pakistan. A note was discovered with the corpse stating that the Red Cross (ICRC) aid worker had been killed because a ransom had not been paid, courtesy of the Taliban.
The beheaded corpse of a British aid worker has been discovered in the Pakistani city of Quetta almost four months after he was kidnapped.
The body of Khalil Rasjed Dale was discovered on a road outside the city in southern Baluchistan province with a note saying he had been killed because a ransom had not been paid.
Dale, who had been working for the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), was kidnapped in January while driving near the organisation’s Quetta office.
What the Jawa Report said, SAVAGES!!!
Because obviously the war on terrorism is over as per the Obama Administration.
So was he or wasn’t he?
It is being reported that Pakistan Taliban Leader Hakimullah Mehsud was killed on January 12, 2012 in the North Waziristan tribal area by a US drone strike. Militant radio communications were intercepted indicating that the Taliban leader was recently killed. However, Pakistani Taliban spokesman Asimullah Mehsud denied the Taliban leader was killed.
Intercepted militant radio communications indicate the leader of the Pakistani Taliban may have been killed in a recent U.S. drone strike, Pakistani intelligence officials said Sunday. A Taliban official denied that.
The report coincided with sectarian violence — a bomb blast in eastern Pakistan that killed 14 people in a Shiite religious procession.
The claim that the Pakistani Taliban chief was killed came from officials who said they intercepted a number of Taliban radio conversations. In about a half a dozen intercepts, the militants discussed whether their chief, Hakimullah Mehsud, was killed on Jan. 12 in the North Waziristan tribal area. Some militants confirmed Mehsud was dead, and one criticized others for talking about the issue over the radio.
I wonder if this Taliban leader was one of Joe Biden’s Taliban that was not our enemy, per se?
Pakistani model and actress Veena Malik has been reported missing by her manager. Veena Malik has been in the middle of a controversy and is suing FHM magazine for what is being said to be doctored nude photos. According to her manager she has not been seen since Friday morning who has received death threats over the photos.
Missing: Veena Malik
The controversial Pakistani model and actress, who is suing FHM magazine after she claimed they doctored photos to make her look nude, has not been seen since yesterday morning.
She had complained of feeling depressed, but also was the subject of death threats over the photos.
Hopefully she is just in hiding and nothing has happened to her as a result of those reasonable radical Muslims who proclaim that Islam is a religion of peace. As the Jawa Report says, And if the “Religion of Perpetual Outrage have gotten to her … maybe it’s time to nuke Pakistan up into the stone age.
She had previously been accused by clerics of immoral behaviour on Bigg Boss for wearing shorts, hugging a male actor and swimming with Pamela Anderson.
She countered by accusing the Pakistan media of having double standards about men and women’s behaviour.
She claimed she only posed topless for FHM, but that photos were doctored to make her look completely naked.
UNREAL, The Walt Disney Company Wants to Profit from the Bravery of US Navy Seals who Killed Bin Laden by Trademarking “Seal Team 6”
Walt Disney should be rolling over in his grave … and be ashamed of what his company has become.
It would appear that it is not just President Barack Obama who wants to “spike the football” of the heroics of the US Navy Seal Team 6, but now the Walt Disney Company wants to profit from the actions of these heroes and trademark “Seal Team 6″. WTF!!! How does some one get to trademark a name that is part of a US Government military name? Seriously, how is not a government entity part of the public domain?
The trademark applications came on May 3rd, two days after the operation that killed Bin Laden… and two days after “Seal Team 6? was included in thousands of news articles and TV programs focusing on the operation.
Disney’s trademark applications for “Seal Team 6? cover clothing, footwear, headwear, toys, games and “entertainment and education services,” among other things.
And the story changes again …
So what is the truth as to what occurred in the US Seal team raid in the capture and killing of Osama Bin Laden? Was the raid caught on VIDEO or not? According to CBS News, the entire Seal raid was captured on tiny helmet cams worn by all Navy Seals.It seems to be yet another version of the story as to what happened in a killing of Bin Laden. Why has it been so difficult for Obama’s folks to communicate what actually happened?
A new picture emerged Thursday of what really happened the night the Navy SEALs swooped in on Osama bin Laden’s compound in Pakistan.
CBS News national security correspondent David Martin reports the 40 minutes it took to kill bin Laden and scoop his archives into garbage bags were all recorded by tiny helmet cameras worn by each of the 25 SEALs.
Officials reviewing those videos are still reconstructing a more accurate version of what happened. We now know that the only firefight took place in the guest house, where one of bin Laden’s couriers opened fire and was quickly gunned down. No one in the main building got off a shot or was even armed, although there were weapons nearby.
Wait a minute, via the Drudge Report, from the UK Telegraph comes the previous story that there was a VIDEO black out during the raid.CIA Director Leon Panetta stated there was a period of 25 minutes when the Seals were in the compound that the situation room did not know what was going on.
Obama Continues Spiking the Football, Obama: Killing Bin Laden “Should Inspire Us To Finish What We Started” By Reelecting Me …
For Obama, who cares about the present situation of the US, its all about reelection …
President Barack Obama is now using the death of Bin Laden as a reason to vote for his reelection. Unreal, wasn’t it Democrats who got upset when 9-11 was invoked by GWB? Well this is interesting, it would appear that Obama is not the only one who has made a “gutsy” decision. Some, ordered the raids multiple times … Bush twice sent commandos into Pakistan after jihadis.
However, do we really need for four more years the out of control spending and 9.0% unemployment of the Obama years? And should we be inspired by the over 100% increase in gas prices as well?

AUDIENCE MEMBER: Thank you for getting bin Laden.
THE PRESIDENT: Well, there you go. (Applause.) Case in point. (Applause.) It should inspire us to finish what we started …
As Weasel Zippers states, it would appear that “somewhere there’s a referee blowing his whistle and throwing a flag for excessive celebration”. That is correct, a 15 yard penalty for excessive celebration and one term!
Former VP Dick Cheney Says, “it’s an “outrage” the Obama administration continues to investigate CIA agents who interrogated terror suspects”
IT’S AN OUTRAGE …
Former Vice President Dick Cheney went on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace to discuss the killing of Osama Bin Laden and the continued investigations into CIA agents by the Obama Administration’s AG Eric Holder. Talk about a mixed message and having your cake and eating it to on the part of Barack Obama. As he takes credit for the killing of Bin Laden, he also is having his administration investigate the very individuals who gathered the intelligence. Dick Cheney did provide profs to Obama; however, he also said that the justice probe of CIA agents was an “OUTRAGE”.
Cheney noted there was a “complete investigation” during the Bush administration that concluded the agents had not violated the law. He said the decision by Holder to reopen that case and hand it over to a special prosecutor sets a “terrible precedent.”
“These are government employees. They did nothing wrong, as best as any of us knows,” Cheney told “Fox News Sunday.” “It is an outrage that we would go after the people who deserve the credit for keeping us safe for seven and a half years.”
Former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld also said Sunday that the Obama administration should set the CIA probe “aside” and move on, calling it a “most unfortunate thing.”
“These people were operating at the direction of the president. They were doing things that had been approved by the Department of Justice,” Rumsfeld said on CBS’ “Face the Nation.” “And it sends a chill throughout the government.”
The Lonely Conservative reminds us that this is not the first time that the Obama Administration has gone after heroes.Let us not forget when they went after Navy Seals for abusing terrorist.
Oh, and remember when they prosecuted Navy SEALS for “abusing” terrorists? The case fell apart, they were just trying to make examples of them. Now they bask in the glory brought to them by the Navy SEALS.
Which further goes to the questions that Chris Wallace would later ask Obama’s WH Security adviser Tom Donilon that shooting a terrorist in the head was consistent with US values but some how waterboarding wasn’t. I guess the same question can be asked as to Navy Seals being prosecuted for abusing terrorist. They can kill them but not abuse them, really?
