A new book, No Easy Day, by the pseudonymous Navy SEAL Mark Owen, reveals that Osama bin Laden was a coward who intended to surrender to U.S. forces when they attacked his compound.

 

On August 28 the Republican National Committee (RNC) allowed representatives of the Mitt Romney campaign to seize control of the Republican Party. As The New American has reported, Ron Paul delegates from Maine were improperly denied credentials, robbing Paul of a majority of that state’s delegation.

This week, Maine’s Ron Paul delegates were roughly shoved out of the Republican Party’s quadrennial convention and as a result of events surrounding the proposal and adoption of new rules to govern the presidential nomination process, every potential Republican presidential candidate with a message that doesn’t parrot the party line has been effectively ostracized, as well. Forever.

The story of just how a very small cabal of monied Republican activists carried out their coup d’etat has been chronicled in every major news outlet.

For the second time this year, the Paul family has been harassed by the Transportation Security Administration. Rep. Ron Paul, his wife, and granddaughter were stopped by eight TSA workers at a small airport in Clearwater, Florida, and told they must be screened. According to the agents, the screening was necessary because Mitt Romney might be nearby.

In an article published by National Review Online, authors from the Foreign Policy Initiative attacked Ron Paul and The John Birch Society as extremists who are not welcome in the Republican Party.

Reports of a soon-to-be released "tell all" book about the raid to get al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden in May of last year has given rise to new threats of vengeance from Arab jihadists and concerns in the United States over the security of its covert operations and the safety of those who carry them out. The book, written by a retired Navy SEAL who took part in the raid, is also bound to create political fallout over what it says about President Obama and the official version of what transpired.
