Mainer’s Recognize 30th Anniversary to Remember Terror Victims; Iran Threatens More Violence


WASHINGTON – SEPTEMBER 7: Edwin Marian Johnston hold up a photo of her son US Marine CPL Edward Johnston who died in the bombing of his Lebanon barracks in 1983 outside Federal Court September 7, 2007 in Washington, DC.

Thirty years ago today, 220 Marines, 18 Sailors and 3 Soldiers were killed when a terrorist drove a truck carrying thousands of pounds of explosives through the headquarters of the 1st Battalion, 8th Marines, located in the Beirut International Airport.

Today, Governor LePage asks Mainers to remember Marine CPL Bruce L. Howard, of Strong, Maine, who was killed in the attack as was Marine Major Andrew L. Davis who also had ties to Maine. 

The Beirut bombing back in 1983 was blamed on the Iranian-backed terrorist group Hezbollah.

As the nation today remembers those attacked by radical extremists, the national news media remains focused on the so-called “glitches” with the Affordable Care Act, and yet the Syrian conflict rages on, and Iran threatens more violence, and this time on U.S. soil.

Former Iranian Revolutionary Guards member, and CIA Operative, Reza Kahlili has been consistent in his reporting of the radical, religious ideology that drives the Iranian mullahs still today.

Kahlili has spoken with me numerous times about his concerns that Americans are dangerously naive as it relates to the U.S. negotiations with the supposed “moderate” Iranian President Rowhani.

Now, Kahlili reports that Iranian military officials are warning of terror attacks on U.S. soil.

This also comes at a time when other online news agencies are reporting that the Saudi’s are criticizing the Obama administration’s policy regarding the Syrian conflict.
