Netanyahu Checkmates Obama

UPDATE: Here is video of his speech It was a beatific experience. Having suffered through the endless, verbose rhetoric of Harry Reid, redeemed only by the straight and delicious (abbreviated) remarks of John Boehner, Benjamin Netanyahu finally took the stage at 10:30.

A posting on the jihadi forum Shumukh Al-Islam, by a member calling himself "Al-Raya Al-Sawda" ("Black Flag"), urges booby-trapping the bodies of American soldiers killed in "successful" jihad operations, and then detonating the charges by remote control when other troops come to collect the bodies or when they are on board a plane carrying them…
