After Benghazi, incompetent Trump pick Mike Flynn ordered his staff to prove Iran did it 5.12.2016 Daily Kos
It is a high bar, but Trump's would-be national security adviser, Lt. Gen. Mike Flynn, may be the single worst Trump pick so far. He is the sort of paranoid dimwit who would eagerly get us into a shooting war for the sake of getting into a shooting war . Days after Islamist militants stormed the American diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, in 2012, Lt. Gen. Michael T. Flynn reached a conclusion that stunned some of his subordinates at the Defense Intelligence Agency: Iran had a role in the attack, he told them. Now, he added, it was their job to prove it — and, by implication, to show that the White House was wrong about what had led to the attack. So faced with a genuine act of terrorism that claimed American lives, Mike Flynn's official reaction as intelligence gatherer was to brush aside work to determine who was behind the attack and order his staff to prove his own preferred theory.

Fox News Worries About Islamic Groups Arming Themselves Against Trump 1.12.2016 Crooks Liars
FBN's Stuart Varney is trying to outgun Eric Bolling as the resident idiot in chief on Fox News these days and earlier today he hosted a segment entitled, " Legal? Islamist Group in U.S. Reportedly Arming for Confrontation with Trump Admin Run for the hills!!! Where did Varney get his intel from, you ask? An anti-Muslim hate group called The Clarion Project.

Obama administration expands elite military unit's powers to hunt foreign fighters globally 25.11.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
Washington • The Obama administration is giving the elite Joint Special Operations Command - the same organization that helped kill Osama bin Laden in a 2011 raid by Navy SEALs - expanded power to track, plan and potentially launch attacks on terrorist cells around the globe, a move driven by concerns of a dispersed terrorist threat as Islamic State militants are driven from strongholds in Iraq and Syria, U.S. officials said.
