Breaking News: Terror Attacks in Paris

Paris attacksPARIS: Two police officials say that at least 26 people have been killed in shootings and explosions around Paris, in the deadliest violence in France in decades.

One of the police officials said 11 people were killed in a Paris restaurant in the 10th arrondissement and about 15 killed in the Bataclan theater, where a hostage-taking is under way.

Both officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to be publicly named according to police policy.

    Presidnet Obama vows to help France hunt down perpetrators of Paris terror attacks
    Corrected: President Obama opened two days of talks with world leaders in Turkey on Sunday by vowing to help France in “hunting down the perpetrators” of the terrorist attacks in Paris. The president’s remarks came after he met for more than an hour with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erogan, who is hosting the Group of 20 Summit. The president’s remarks also referenced a twin-bombing attack in Ankara, Turkey, last month that killed more than 100 people.

      “If the GOP plays this politically smart….” Yeah, the right wing gasbags will be tripping over themselves trying to blame this on President Obama, Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, etc… They’ll be blaming everyone except for the administration that invaded Iraq without cause, destabilized the region and spawned ISIS. They keep trying to return to their 9/11 glory days when all of that fear mongering worked so well on the American people. I just don’t believe it is “politically smart” to assume that most Americans either have short memories or can’t tell truth from lies.

    True, but it comes from the voices of the ignorant, prominent or not.

    That some people, prominent at that, within minutes of the Paris attacks, used it as an excuse to attack students in Missouri, is sickening.— Shaun King (@ShaunKing) November 14, 2015

    Father, in the Name of Jesus, I pray strongly for the people of France, especially the city of Paris. I pray for their safety and sanity. I plead the Blood of Your Son Jesus over all witnesses and for their protection. Lord also I claim and pray for all major American cities, New York, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, San Francisco, Washington,D.C. and any not mentioned. I pray for all residents and visitors there….especially President Obama and his family. I call forth Your Mighty warring Angels and strong ministering Spirits to give wisdom, guidance and protection to us in this country. Satan, your are behind this and you are a liar and a deceiver. Cease and desist in your evil moves in the minds of Isis and other evil people. IN JESUS NAME!!!! AMEN!

      You know her don’t you SG..? That’s that evil woman formerly of the New York Times who colluded with Dick Cheney to mislead America and the world over the presence of WMDs and so many other things that we’re a still suffering from and paying for to this day..

      The woman is soulless and pure evil and there’s a special place in hell for her..

      This is just another attempt by Judith Miller to deflect from the horrors she actively aided, abetted and exacerbated in her role as a mule for Cheney in the follow up to the Iraq war and after, that has now morphed into a never ending nightmare for the entire world.

      If Judith Miller thinks she can distract from her role in what is happening in Paris today, by whipping out and trying to inflict her bitter evil racist on young black students under racist threat by homegrown terrorists/white supremacists in their own college campuses, the woman has another think coming..

      • Liza says:

        “If Judith Miller thinks she can distract from her role in what is happening in Paris today…” Good point, given her prominent role as Cheney’s useful idiot at the NYT.

        Well, if she thinks she can use Twitter to resurrect her credibility by attacking young, black people and other young folks who are protesting on college campuses, she will soon find that she’s out of her league. She’ll be chewed up and spit out while her own ugly history is revived. Such an awful person.

      • Liza says:

        I suppose that everything she has done since her fall at the NYT is to convince herself that she is still respected as a “journalist” and taken seriously. But her legacy is set in stone, and nothing she has done post NYT has been redemptive. She should dig a hole and crawl in it, or at least keep her mouth shut, but her narcissism won’t let her.

      • I tweeted some of your comments and beat the ISH out of her with them.

    • Liza says:

      I saw this earlier on Twitter and my blood pressure spiked. Judith Miller is irrelevant, of course, she was long ago outed as Dick Cheney’s and his neocon’s useful idiot, and she has no credibility outside of her right wing circles. She still refers to herself as a journalist which is an insult to the profession. But for this despicable, pea-brained twit to rear her ugly head and disparage those who are standing up on college campuses is really too much. She needs to sit down and STFU.
