It’s been a hell of a year.

The News Roundup first started in March, so here’s a quick snapshot of what we’ve hit, by month, since then.


The beginning of the Roundup, where I covered my own personal muse, Bowe Freaking Bergdahl. We also talked about my good buddy’s company, the Pipe Hitter’s Union, and his cover-boy model that all of our female SOFREP readers were drooling over. This was also the first of our many, many bumbling jihadi stories. Not knowing that, months later, I could have been describing the “vetting” of San Bernardino shooter Tashfeen Malik, I wrote this, describing how easy it would be to “vet” these guys:

“Hasan, good morning. Nice day out, isn’t it?”

“Good morning, it is indeed a nice day.”

“Any plans to join the Islamic State?”

“ALLAHU AKBA…um…no?”
