  • Former CIA director Mike Morell went to work for Ben Rhodes’ brother at CBS

    Former CIA directory (and part of the Benghazi cover-up) went to work for Ben Rhodes’ brother at CBS. David RHodes is the brother of ‘big Ben’ and president of CBS News. Need any other reasons why CBS has ignored the latest e-mail released about the Benghazi cover-up? Surely there isn’t a conflict of interest there right? Need another reason why Sharyl Attkinson left CBS?Michael Morell, who retired as deputy director of the CIA last summer, has joined CBS News as an intelligence, national security and counterterrorism contributor, the network announced this week. Morell has held various senior leadership positions during...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. officials say the CIA has been delivering light machine guns and other small arms to Syrian rebels for several weeks, following President Barack Obama’s decision to arm the rebels. The agency has also arranged for the Syrian opposition to receive anti-tank weaponry like rocket-propelled grenades through a third party, presumably one of the Gulf countries that has been arming the rebels, according to a senior U.S. intelligence official and two former intelligence officials. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the classified program publicly.

    The CIA has begun delivering weapons to rebels in Syria, ending months of delay in lethal aid that had been promised by the Obama administration, according to U.S. officials and Syrian figures. The shipments began streaming into the country over the past two weeks, along with separate deliveries by the State Department of vehicles and other gear — a flow of material that marks a major escalation of the U.S. role in Syria’s civil war. The arms shipments, which are limited to light weapons and other munitions that can be tracked, began arriving in Syria at a moment of heightened...
  • The Attack In Benghazi: Worth Investigating After All

    Suddenly it is imperative that Congress investigate details surrounding the attack that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens. I've never felt that way before. But Jake Tapper's scoop changed my mind. To be clear, it isn't at all certain that the CIA was secretly funneling Libyan weapons to Syria, long before Congress "lifted its hurdles" on arming Syrian rebels. But if CNN's report is correct, the CIA is at minimum trying to hide something huge from Congress, something that CIA agents might otherwise want to reveal -- itself a reason for Congress to press hard for information. And if speculation about moving...
  • Intelligence backs claim Iraq tried to buy uranium

    Illicit sales of uranium from Niger were being negotiated with five states including Iraq at least three years before the US-led invasion, senior European intelligence officials have told the Financial Times. Intelligence officers learned between 1999 and 2001 that uranium smugglers planned to sell illicitly mined Nigerien uranium ore, or refined ore called yellow cake, to Iran, Libya, China, North Korea and Iraq. These claims support the assertion made in the British government dossier on Iraq's weapons of mass destruction programme in September 2002 that Iraq had sought to buy uranium from an African country, confirmed later as Niger.

    The central figure in the CIA leak scandal, Valerie Plame, is now shopping a book proposal, The New York Times reports Thursday. Naturally, this comes by way of a leak--but this time not from Robert Novak or Scooter Libby. It comes from what he Times calls "two people familiar with the project." It adds: "Both people were granted anonymity because their publishing companies have signed nondisclosure agreements about the content of the proposal." No details were available about the content. Her husband, Joseph Wilson, wrote a book himself, published last year. Plame, who was outed as a CIA operative by...

    ....among the thousands of CIA employees is an influential number of Praetorians whose political corruption threatens the whole agency. As the Wall Street Journal said of the CIA in an editorial last Wednesday, "The serious and disturbing question is whether the rot is so deep that it is unfixable, and we ought to start all over and create a new intelligence agency." ........ Now, there is an alliance between the CIA praetorians and the media that works to hamper the President's policies. It doesn't scruple at leaking top-secret information to upset policies with which it disagrees. And it does so...

    AP ^ | June 29, 2003
    U.S. forces launched a massive operation early Sunday to crush insurgents and capture senior figures from the ousted regime in a show of force designed to stem a wave of deadly attacks on U.S. troops. The operation, dubbed "Desert Sidewinder," is taking place in a huge swath of central Iraq stretching from the Iranian border to the areas north of Baghdad, and is expected to last for several days, military officials said. Americans arrested a man in Khalis, 45 miles north of Baghdad. He is suspected of recruiting young men to launch attacks on Americans, according to military officials. In...
