WASHINGTON — Renowned terrorism expert and author Sebastian Gorka said Saturday that as many as 110 jihadis linked to the Islamic State terrorist organization have either been arrested or killed inside the United States since the militant group rose to power in 2014.
Gorka, the author of the book Defeating Jihad: The Winnable War and the former chair of military theory at Marine Corps University, spoke during a panel discussion titled "Jihad in America" at the Family Research Council's Values Voters Summit, along with Department of Homeland Security whistleblower Philip Haney and the founder of American Islamic Forum for Democracy, Zudhi Jasser.
Gorka began by asking the mostly evangelical audience if they felt safer today than they did on Sept. 10, 2001, which produced a resounding "No!" more >>
Pastor Saeed Abedini, a former American hostage who was held for three and a half years in an Iranian prison for his Christian faith, said on the 15th anniversary of 9/11 that Muslims started a war on Christianity with the terror attacks.
Abedini said that although most Christian pastors do not want to say it, Islam is a satanic religion that leads people astray.
President Barack Obama could potentially face the first veto override of his presidency, after a bill allowing 9/11 victims' families to sue Saudi Arabia was unanimously passed in the House.
"We miss them. And we grieve at what they have missed in lives cut short by terrorists whose immediate targets were innocents and whose ongoing target is everything America has stood for, fought for and promised to protect and defend since our union was formed," the families said in a statement, according to CBS News.
"And we anguish especially as we witness the spread of the poisonous ideology that is determined to ensure that 9/11 was only the beginning." more >>
The government of North Korea has carried out its fifth and largest nuclear warhead test on Friday, claiming that it has mastered the ability to mount a warhead on a ballistic missile, despite countless international sanctions and warnings by world leaders.

World leaders were quick to condemn the test, with South Korea's President Park Geun-hye calling Kim Jong Un's regime "fanatically reckless." more >>
