4. France says “the US caved”
(At last! Someone is following up on that!)
Government watchdog group Judicial Watch is suing the Department of Justice to obtain records about a suspicious explosion that leveled an apartment complex in a majority Muslim neighborhood in Minneapolis, Minnesota last year.
The January 1, 2014 explosion leveled a building in the largely Muslim Cedar-Riverside neighborhood of Minneapolis, but the incident was never explained to the public, nor did local authorities ever fully investigate the explosion or determine its cause.
6. Bill Whittle: No sir, I will not obey that order
The Islamic State’s branch in Egypt has claimed responsibility for a wave of deadly attacks that killed 15 Egyptian soldiers and three civilians the previous day in volatile northern Sinai.
A statement posted Friday on a militant website associated with the group, known as “Sinai Province,” says its fighters attacked seven checkpoints, killing “dozens of soldiers” on a main road in the Sinai Peninsula leading to the border with Gaza Strip.
Egyptian authorities said 15 soldiers were killed and 19 were wounded in an attack on a checkpoint on Thursday south of the town of Sheikh Zuweyid. Three civilians died in near-simultaneous attacks elsewhere in Sinai, suggesting careful planning by the militants.
The attacks were the latest in a series of large-scale assaults by the Sinai-based militant branch
