Matt, I just heard you on Hugh Hewitt in my car, the only place I can get radio reception here in Bisbee. Wahoo! Our HEROES are getting more and more coverage, God love 'em. They're on Twitter now, too. With more followers by the minute! I'm telling everybody I know, and my parish admin deacon may put something in the Sunday bulletin. Our guys! Wow.No bullshit. They just go and DO!

Kriste, what you said is so true, and so beautiful. I've got tears of gratitude running down my face. Matt I retweeted your tweet, and put one of my own on there. I only have 64 followers, but what the heck.

USArmyAfrica is a great Twitter feed. I think they were the first with info that the bomber's father had warned us. I am learning a heck of a lot about Africa through them. I highly recommend that if you're on Twitter to follow them.

Walid Shoebat (a former jihadist) sent this out tonight: Below is National Press Release Going out Tomorrow. Before we go on the attack in the Media let us all pray for the victims and their families in this terrible tragedy in Ft Hood. TO WHAT LEVEL IS US MILITARY, FBI, CIA, DEPT. OF HOMELAND SECURITY INFILTRATED W. MUSLIM JIHADISTS? In the wake of the cowardly Ft. Hoot mass fatal shooting of 11 or more unarmed U.S. soldiers by Maj. Malik Nadal Hasan, America has the right to know the truth about sleeper war cells in the U.S. Walid Shoebat Former Islamic Terrorist who was once part of Jihad war cells in the US and understands fully the mindset of terrorists has been warning America of the potential of this very type of tragedy and worse for many years. Shoebat contends that the US Army, Navy, Air Force, FBI, CIA, Dept. of Homeland Security are all infiltrated with Muslim Extremists. “America needs to awaken from its sleep and its unwillingness to face the issue of fundamentalist Islam in our midst which undoubtedly is the cause of the tragedy in Ft Hood” says Mr. Shoebat, adding, “Some very serious decisions need to made when it comes to having Muslims protecting our country, as it is impossible to know whether they maybe honorable or foxes in the hen house.” Walid is the author of the book “Why We Want To Kill You, The Jihad Mindset and How to Defeat it." INTERVIEW TALKING POINTS By Walid Shoebat: -- Nidal Malik Hasan is NOT a convert but Jordanian Muslim SINCE BIRTH! Infiltration by Islamists in the military is a fact My own brother served in the United States Air Force and his loyalty was to his ideology, yet allowing him to guard nuclear facilities should be on check. Religion is a sensitive issue but we should not undermine our security from fear of ‘Islamophobia.’ -- Muslims by Sharia Law are mandated never to fight Muslims. Muslim soldiers need to be questioned whether this is an issue, yet we virtually never question them. -- Converts to Islam are susceptible to Islamization, the case of Sgt. Hassan Akbar from Camp Pennsylvania in Kuwait killed two Americans and was influenced by the MSU (Muslim Student Association), also Ali Muhammad a double agent that worked for the FBI and collaborated with Al-Qaeda -- Speaking at the Air Force Academy in Colorado to expose the infiltration of Islamist. Not only were over a hundred of Middle Eastern Muslims allowed to infiltrate, but were also allowed to threaten us with death with no repercussions whatsoever -- Omar Khalifa, a student, got away with the threats and while Khalifa was related to Osama Bin Laden's son-in-law, he was largely ignored! -- At the Marines, our event was cancelled as to ‘not to offend Saudi visitors. At Camp Bullis was a Muslim in the U.S army who said he was ‘offended’ that I spoke on the issue of terrorism. Has ‘Political correctness’ seeped into our military apparatus to the point where no one can say anything lest they risk we offend someone? When Americans are being killed,all issues should be on the table. -- The big question: Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome or Terrorism? Nidal never served in Iraq or Afghanistan to qualify as a candidate for Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome.

Bless you! Thank you so much. I just kept picturing the family members' faces. The send off ceremony was last Friday at Reid Park in Tucson, outdoors, quite a change from the usual armory ceremony. Quite beautiful, in fact. Then we (PGR) escorted the buses the next morning to the airport. There's a guy in our group, God love him, who races to the front of the line, hops off his bike, and takes pictures. He does this all along the route. Then he makes up a bunch of cd's and gives them to any of the families who want them. We're pretty close to our Guard here in AZ.

Oh dear God, we just sent off 80 plus men and women of the Arizona National Guard to Ft. Hood for training before deployment to Afghanistan. All their families must be sick with worry. I'm praying real hard here.

I just finished the book last night. I admire his courage and honesty no end, and I'd like to thank our David Bellavia for encouraging him to write the book, and hooking him up with his co-author. The Epilogue particularly struck home with me, and I know just to whom I will be giving this book.... a Marine who came home from Iraq to an empty house last year ... who got arrested a few weeks ago, and was allowed to enter treatment for alcoholism in the local men's rehab, which he got kicked out of for physical violence. I know that I can't help him, but perhaps if he reads Jeremiah's book he'll really know he's not alone. And about the tie ... Jeremiah looks good in anything. lol

A person who is that totally self-absorbed will never realize it. She is now claiming that the news station misrepresented her email. Hey man, it's right there in black and white. What's to misrepresent? She has a problem communicating, I would say, besides being selfish. She'd be better off shutting up, as she's just digging a deeper hole. http://www.fox2now.com/ktvi-boyer-letters-091009,0,3136446,full.story I just want to say that I've been a member of the PGR since January 2006, went on the first mission here in Az in February 2006 in Safford for a young Marine. We came from all over the state, and none of us knew what we were doing, it was all so new, but by God we had respect for our Marine and his family. The scuzzy guys she was complaining about are road guards who are pretty damned experienced in controlling traffic. I'm in awe of them, as it can get pretty hairy at times. The PGR are some of the finest people I've ever met in my life, and I'll be 64 on Sunday. They'll drop everything in a moment's notice for you. They LIVE to honor our military and their families. I'd say about 80 per cent or higher are Vietnam Vets. The healing I've seen over the past 3 + years is palpable. You see many patches of "Never Again". As you can probably tell, I love them.

Dacker, I just posted a comment over on your blog stating that the father of the fallen Marine TWICE asked the AP NOT to post the photo, and they went ahead and did it anyway. Here's audio of part of an interview that he did: http://tinyurl.com/mrqmsa Also read this by the mother of a soldier who was wounded: http://somesoldiersmom.blogspot.com/2009/09/cruelty-without-excuse.html The AP is despicable for doing this. I respect your service,Sir, and I thank you for it. BTW, what is it that you dot't like about other milblogs that caused you so start your own? I'd be very interested to hear your take on things.
