ISIS recruiting effort going well enough to pull in Denver teenager

Not only are the brutal tactics of ISIS, combined with the howling vacuum of American leadership, breaking the morale of their enemies, but it's produced a recruiting bonanza.  They've been doing so well in conquered Iraqi territory that the government in Baghdad launched airstrikes against a Mosul mosque, because ISIS was using it as a recruiting center.  They're also pulling in jihadists from beyond Iraq and Syria.

Surprise: Obama's pinprick strikes fail to halt advance of al-Qaeda Junior Varsity squad

When Valerie Jarrett told Barack Obama he'd have to cut a few hours out of his fiftieth luxury vacation and do something in Iraq, lest he go down in history as the President who lounged at poolside while genocide went down, his initial statements insisted it would be a matter of launching a few quick airstrikes against ISIS... even as everyone in the defense establishment was muttering about long-term commitments and a lack of easy solutions.  On Saturday, Obama came off the back nine to give another press conference and finally admit that the situation in Iraq would be a "long-term" project.

Flashback: Mitt Romney on Iraq

It's a pity, at this dangerous juncture, that America can't send Barack Obama - The Man Who Was Wrong About Absolutely Everything - to the showers and replace him with Mitt Romney.  Obama's foolishness has cost America and the world dearly.   Aug 9, 2014 8:22 PM PT

Internet security freak-out of the week: Russian gangsters have a billion stolen passwords

If you thought security incidents like the theft of personal information from retail giant Target were bad news, you won't like hearing that a Russian gang has quietly amassed a stockpile of stolen Internet user names, passwords, and email addresses that dwarfs any previous security breach.  In fact, based on the New York Times' account, it might be bigger than all of the others put together: Aug 6, 2014 12:57 PM PT

Democrat congresswoman salutes the Luftwaffe

It's a silly mistake, but a rather telling silly mistake: when staffers for Democrat Julia Brownley of California's 26th Congressional District sent out a flyer, they grabbed some stock images of smiling constituents to illustrate how the representative is "Reaching Across the Aisle FOR REAL RESULTS," and picked one of a young lady they presumably thought was a Navy officer.  Instead, she's wearing some sort of uniform mock-up that includes the symbol of the German air force, the Bundeswehr Luftwaffe, on her cap.

Man and superwoman

There's a little dust-up going on in the movie and comic-book communities over the lack of a big superhero film with a solo female star.  Plenty of these films, including the current hit "Guardians of the Galaxy," have female team members, but so far there hasn't been a solo project with a female star in the vein of Iron Man or Captain America.  Supposedly Marvel has some vague hope of creating such a movie one of these days, but it never gets further than boilerplate P.C. rhetoric about how it's a swell idea and everyone loves the notion of a strong superwoman carrying her own film.  Film School Rejects has an amusing history of Marvel honcho Kevin Feige wriggling out from beneath this question roughly once per year, every year since 2008.
