Watch: Fox News Host Says 5 Words On Live TV That’ll Drive Muslims Insane

Fox News Channel host Gretchen Carlson is facing backlash from some in the Muslim community this week after remarks she recently made on her program, The Real Story.

Sharing her thoughts on the recently declassified documents recovered in the raid of Osama bin Laden’s compound in Pakistan, Carlson said she found many revelations very interesting.

“As we continue to sift through the 103 documents released today from his compound,” she said, “it’s fascinating to see how the al-Qaeda leader was living his life in the Pakistani compound – what he was reading, what he was watching, even his relationships with his wives and children.”

She went on to remark on the unusual dichotomy of the terror organization’s recruitment forms.

“One really weird thing stands out too,” she said, “in regard to the al-Qaeda recruitment. Turns out, the al-Qaeda recruitment form looks a lot like any other job application – at least in the beginning.”

Further along in the form, however, she explained that it “gets more al-Qaedaish” with questions including “Do you wish to execute a suicide mission?” and “Who should we contact in case you become a martyr.”

The comment that sparked criticism came when Carlson revealed what she considered the “most sickening part” of the recruitment form.

She cited the last line – “Praise Allah, lord of all worlds.” – before sharing her dismissive opinion.

“Nope,” she concluded. “Not really – at all.”

After Mediaite reported on the comment, Carlson reacted with a Twitter post clarifying her position and asserting the news site got it wrong.

While the explanation received its share of skepticism, as many felt she was simply trying to backpedal her initial remark, at least one Twitter user declared her five-word closing phrase Tuesday’s quote of the day.

Shock Poll: George W. Bush Just Came In Fourth In This Student Poll…For An Unbelievable Reason

When you see the results of a new poll of thousands of students in 37 countries, you might be shaking your head in disbelief as you wonder what the world is coming to. Or, possibly, you’ll find the results of the survey confirm your suspicion that ideology and ignorance are shaping the opinions of a rising generation of young people who seem to have a very weak grasp of history as well as the nature of true evil.

The Daily Mail has shared the results of an opinion poll of some 7,000 young men and women, identified as university students with an average age of 23. Researchers who conducted the wide-ranging study reportedly asked the students to rate on a scale from 1-7 their feelings, positive and negative, about well-known figures and events.

When the scores were tallied for George W. Bush, the study found that the 43rd President of the United States came in fourth among history’s all-time “villains.” Just behind Adolf Hitler, Osama bin Laden, and Saddam Hussein, Bush was said to be among the most evil, most hated of historical figures.

As the following table shows, the students surveyed identified their top-ten “heroes” as well, citing Jesus Christ as #6 on the list.

According to The Daily Mail article on the surprising survey, the researchers who conducted the poll say “the impact of time” is at least partly responsible for the results that show President Bush to be a bigger “villain” than Stalin, Mao, or Lenin — each of whom was directly responsible for untold numbers of deaths within their own countries. Mao Zedong, for example, is thought by human rights advocates to have been responsible for an estimated 40 to 70 million deaths through starvation, forced labor, and executions.

“Religious idealists” and “Secular Idealists” had strongly negative views towards Osama, Saddam, and Hitler.

“Religious Idealists” and “Political Realists” thought positively of religious leaders such as Buddha and Jesus.

“Historical Indifferents” didn’t have a strong feeling for anyone, apart from George W Bush who they disliked.

The only figure that all four groups disliked was Bush, the study found.

What one might find equally interesting from the results of the survey is that Barack Obama is nowhere to be found on the students’ list of “heroes” or among the “40 historical figures rated in terms of popularity.”

Breaking: Gov’t Releases Personal Bin Laden Docs That Expose His Life Like Never Before

The U.S. Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) Wednesday released more than 100 documents taken during the 2011 raid in Abbottabad, Pakistan when Navy SEALs killed Osama Bin Laden.

“The Intelligence Community will be reviewing hundreds more documents in the near future for possible declassification and release,” an ODNI statement said.

Among the documents were letters to supporters, family members, and the American people. An application for joining Al-Qaeda was also released. Some of the questions include:

  • Did you study Shari’a?
  • Which shaykhs do you listen to or read often?
  • Have you invented or researched anything in any domain?
  • List the countries to which you have traveled and the purpose of the trip(s).
  • Do you wish to execute a suicide operation?

Bin Laden also wrote letters directly to the American people discussing the evils of money and the war against him and his followers.

“The subject of my talk is the despotism of Big Money and its role in the current wars between us. I begin by reminding you that if you had reflected on a little of what has been said, you would have been able to avoid wasting much blood and money. A good example is what one of your former presidents previously warned you about with the despotism of the Big Money and about a day when you would become its laborers,” said one letter.

In another letter to the American people, Bin Laden stressed that jihad for him and his followers “against the tyrants and the aggressors is a form of great worship.”

Thus, our jihad against you is worship, and your killing us is a testimony. Thanks to God, Almighty, we have been waging jihad for 30 years, against the Russians and then against you. Not a single one of our men has committed suicide, whereas every 30 days 30 of your men commit suicide. Continue the war if you will.

“Justice is the strongest army, and security is the best way of life, but it slipped out of your grasp the day you made the Jews victorious in occupying our land and killing our brothers in Palestine,” continued Bin Laden in the letter. “The path to security is for you to lift your oppression from us.”

The deceased Al-Qaeda leader also had several copies of Foreign Policy, Newsweek, and Washington Quarterly. Additionally, copies of “Game Spot Videogame Guide,” “Delta Force Extreme 2 Videogame Guide,” and “Grappler’s Guide to Sports Nutrition” were recovered from the compound.

Shocking New Report Claims Obama Lied About Bin Laden Death Raid For This Appalling Reason

As might be expected, defenders of the Obama White House are pushing back vigorously against a report by Pulitzer Prize-winning author and investigative journalist Seymour Hersh claiming that the president lied about circumstances surrounding the 2011 raid that resulted in the death of terror mastermind Osama bin Laden. Writing in the London Review of Books, Hersh reveals that Obama rushed into the media spotlight to claim primary credit for the success of the raid by Navy SEALs, without acknowledging the key role of Pakistani special forces in the extremely dangerous mission.

According to an article in The Daily Mail:

The former New York Times reporter quotes former American and Pakistani intelligence sources, as well as Navy SEALs as he claims that the White House and CIA repeatedly lied to the public about nearly every aspect of the bin Laden raid.

He says ‘high-level lying’ and ‘bypassing the chain of command’ is standard fare in U.S. counter-terrorism and those who stand up to the White ‘say no’ to the consensus are usually phased out.

The Daily Mail report notes that Hersh makes a number of explosive claims in his piece that has sent the Obama administration into high-defense mode. Among them:
– The Pakistanis had been essentially holding bin Laden captive at the Abbottabad compound for years.
– The CIA learned of bin Laden’s location from a Pakistani intelligence official who tipped off American operatives hoping to claim the $25million bounty on the terror leader — not from interrogation of an al-Qaeda courier.
– There was no firefight during the SEAL raid — the only shots fired were those that killed bin Laden, whom Hersh described as a feeble, unarmed man.

In reporting on the startling claims by Seymour Hersh, CNN notes: “A former senior CIA official at time of the bin Laden raid told CNN on Monday that ‘this account is complete and utter fiction.’”

As of this writing, the White House had not yet formally responded to Hersh’s claims that a boastful President Obama allegedly lied about the bin Laden raid. However, as CNN pointed out, “at least one former administration official was out Monday morning vehemently rebutting Hersh’s claims. CIA Deputy Director Michael Morrell dismissed the report in an interview on CBS’ ‘This Morning,’ calling it ‘all wrong.’”

One can certainly see why administration sources and others in the military and intelligence communities involved in the planning or execution of the raid that led to bin Laden’s death would be adamantly defending the initial story of how the operation took place. The CNN report on Hersh’s piece points out an especially damning claim regarding the U.S. Command-in-Chief:

“Hersh also alleges Obama’s speech announcing the successful mission was ‘put together in a rush,’ not vetted or cleared by national security officials and created ‘chaos in the weeks following.’”

Rob O’Neill, The Man Who Killed Osama Bin Laden, Joins Fox News

Robert O'Neill

Rob O’Neill, the SEAL Team Six member who is said to have fired the shots that killed Osama bin Laden, has signed on as a contributor for the Fox News Channel, the network announced in a statement Thursday.

O’Neill “will offer military expertise and analysis across various daytime and primetime programs,” Fox News said in a press release. Fox News president and CEO Roger Ailes praised O’Neill’s service:

Rob O’Neill is an American hero who dedicated his life to serving our country and protecting our freedoms. It’s incredibly rare to have someone in a television contributor role with his leadership experience and expertise at the fighting unit level. His military insight will be a major asset to the network and we are honored to have him.

Fox News featured O’Neill extensively in a documentary last November entitled, The Man Who Killed Usama Bin Laden. During the series, O’Neill told reporter Peter Doocy he and his fellow Navy SEALs believed going to Abbottabad to take out bin Laden in 2011 was a suicide mission.

The more we trained on it, the more we realized this is gonna be a one-way mission. We’re gonna go and we’re not gonna come back. We’re going to die when the house blows up, we’re going to die when he blows up, or we’re going to be there too long, we get arrested by the Pakistanis, and we’re going to spend the rest of our lives in a Pakistan prison.

The Daily Mail pointed out the newest member of the Fox News team has received criticism from officials and other Navy SEALs for revealing himself as the bin Laden killer.

Still, O’Neill is a highly decorated officer, as his biography shows. He earned two Silver Stars, four Bronze Stars with Valor, a Joint Service Commendation Medal with Valor, three Presidential Unit citations, and two Navy/Marine Corps Commendations with Valor — decorated a total of 52 times. He retired from the Navy in 2012.
