  • The Leakers Who Exposed Gen. Flynn’s Lie Committed Serious — and Wholly Justified — Felonies

    The Intercept ^ | 02/14/17 | Glenn Greenwald
    PRESIDENT TRUMP’S NATIONAL security adviser, Gen. Michael Flynn, was forced to resign on Monday night as a result of getting caught lying about whether he discussed sanctions in a December telephone call with a Russian diplomat. The only reason the public learned about Flynn’s lie is because someone inside the U.S. government violated the criminal law by leaking the contents of Flynn’s intercepted communications. In the spectrum of crimes involving the leaking of classified information, publicly revealing the contents of SIGINT — signals intelligence — is one of the most serious felonies. Journalists (and all other nongovernmental citizens) can be...

    Washington (AFP) - The United States pledged its unwavering committment to Israel on Monday, and insisted it will take "whatever steps are necessary" to deny adversary Iran a nuclear bomb. As international negotiators seek a deal with Tehran to rein in its nuclear program, Washington's UN ambassador Samantha Power reiterated President Barack Obama's commitment to prevent the Islamic republic from developing atomic weapons. "He will keep his commitment whether the negotiations collapse or produce a diplomatic solution that meets our bottom line," she told some 16,000 attendees at US pro-Israel lobby AIPAC ahead of a speech by visiting Israeli Prime...

    White House spokesman Josh Earnest on Friday explained that President Barack Obama’s decision not to meet with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu when he visits Washington to address Congress, is related solely to the timing of the visit - close to the Israeli elections. Speaking to reporters, Earnest said that even if there are disagreements between the United States and Israel, Washington remains committed to Israel’s security. The comments were made a day after the White House made clear that neither Obama nor Secretary of State John Kerry would meet Netanyahu while he is in Washington for his speech before Congress....

    (CNSNews.com) - Secretary of State John Kerry said in a speech at the State Department yesterday that President Barack Obama is “deeply committed to getting to the negotiating table” with a Syrian regime that the administration is convinced committed a “crime against humanity” and is led by a "thug and murderer" because “there is no ultimate military solution” to the problems in Syria. However, Kerry also said that whatever action President Obama took would “be limited,” would not involve “boots on the ground”—but that “history would judge us all extraordinarily harshly if we turned a blind eye to a dictator’s...

    Iran is dedicated to annihilating Israel, the Islamic regime’s military chief of staff declared Sunday. “The Iranian nation is standing for its cause and that is the full annihilation of Israel,” Maj. Gen. Hassan Firouzabadi said in a speech to a defense gathering Sunday in Tehran. His remarks came on the day International Atomic Energy Agency director Yukiya Amano flew to Tehran to negotiate for inspections of Iran’s nuclear program. They were reported by the Fars News Agency, the media outlet of the Revolutionary Guards Corps. While many within the Islamic regime, including President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, have often stated that...

It was the first publicly announced meeting between an Egyptian and an Israeli official since Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak was toppled from power on Feb. 11 and handed power to the military. A day after it took power, the ruling Supreme Council of the Armed Forces said it was committed to Egypt's international treaties in an early message to reassure Jerusalem and the United States.

Pervez Musharraf before committing the U.S. military to move on "actionable intelligence" on the whereabouts of terrorist leaders in Pakistan. He did not answer directly.
