Two off duty U.S. soldiers and a student subdued, and beat the crap out of, an armed terrorist on a French bullet train. The three are being treated as heroes and were awarded a medal by the French government. One is also being treated for wounds.

The gunman’s alibi? He’s no terrorist. He’s a train robber.

150723-Death-to-AmericaThe historic deal with Iran is done. Secretary of State Kerry says if a new president tries to change it “we’ll have proven we’re not trustworthy”.

President Obama says he will veto any bill if Congress tries to change the deal.

Supreme Leader Khameini says, “Death to America”.

President Obama still isn’t impressed by the JV team. Ten months into the contest he doesn’t yet have a strategy for ISIS.  He’s reaching out to Sunni tribes in Iraq to scout more fighters. Thomas Sowell says the president blew a big lead and now the game is his to lose.

President Obama is good at getting prisoners released from GITMO but not so much from Iran. While he polishes his nuclear deal, a Washington Post reporter rots in Iran’s notorious Evin Prison.  Jason Rezaian has been the Supreme Leader’s guest there since last July.

Rezaian’s trial was yesterday. Secret – like the nuke deal. So far no word on the outcome.

The Islamic Caliphate is capturing and holding territory in Anbar province and Syria. ISIS murdered 262 people in Palmyra over Memorial Day weekend. If past behavior is any guide, antiquities there could be doomed. President Obama called the defeat of Ramadi a “tactical setback”.

In a commencement speech at the Coast Guard Academy last week the president hinted at his military priorities. He named climate change the top national security threat.
