“IPT Senior Fellow Testifies at Hearing on Iranian Terror”
by Abha Shankar
Mar 4, 2014 at 4:25 pm
SNIPPET: “Pete Hoekstra, Shillman Senior Fellow at the Investigative Project on Terrorism, testified Tuesday at a Joint Subcommittee hearing titled, “Iran’s Support for Terrorism Worldwide.” The hearing, sponsored by the House Foreign Affairs Committee, highlighted Iran’s role as the world’s foremost sponsor of terror and emphasized that negotiations to roll back the Islamic Republic’s nuclear program should not ignore its support for global terror through its elite Quds Force and proxy Hizballah.
Hoekstra, a former nine-term congressman who served as chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, focused on the threat from the “increasing sophistication of Iran’s cyber program and capability to conduct cyber warfare.” He cited recent examples where Iran hacked into networks of U.S. financial institutions and the Navy and mentioned reports of possible Russian collaboration with Iran to bolster its cyber capability.”
SNIPPET: “Hoekstra’s testimony cautioned against the growing partnership between Iran and Russia that could create “a dangerous new dynamic” for U.S. policymakers. In addition to enhanced collaboration in the cyber field, both Iran and Russia are providing arms to the brutal Bashar al-Assad regime in Syria.
Hoekstra also raised the possibility that Iran and its proxies might join hands with Sunni extremist groups such as Hamas and al-Qaida to attack American and Western interests.”

TECHNOLOGY 7887 kHz, Your Home for Classic Cuban Espionage Radio The shortwave radio signals that the alleged Russian spies were using are still surprisingly effective. By Brett Sokol Posted Tuesday, July 6, 2010, at 1:53 PM ET The FBI documents that accompanied last week’s arrest of 10 alleged Russian spies are alternately creepywho knew the Tribeca Barnes & Noble was a hotbed of espionage?and comicalturns out even foreign spies wanted to cash in on suburban New Jersey’s real estate boom. With a nod to Boris and Natasha, the accused are also said to have used short-wave radio, a 1920s-era technology that, because of its particular place in the spectrum, can bounce off the atmosphere and travel across continents. The FBI’s criminal complaint paints a picture of stateside spies hunkered down in front of their radios, year after year, in homes in Montclair, N.J.; Yonkers, N.Y.; Boston; and Seattle, furiously filling spiral notebooks with “apparently random columns of numbers” broadcast from the motherland.
