  • Pakistan blocks US diplomat from leaving after fatal crash

    05/14/2018 2:23:39 AM PDT · by BBell · 12 replies
    Pakistan has prevented a US diplomat from leaving the country after he allegedly killed a motorcyclist by driving through a red light last month. Local press said on Saturday that a plane was sent by the US to collect Col Joseph Emanuel Hall, a military attache, but was denied clearance. US officials have previously said he cannot be arrested or tried because he has diplomatic immunity. The incident has increased political tension between the countries. Ateeq Baig, 22, was killed in the crash in Daman-e-Koh, north of Islamabad, on 7 April. CCTV footage showed a white four-wheel-drive - said to...

    EXCLUSIVE: US Government is protecting identity of an American diplomat who forced a 22-year-old woman to perform oral sex at a party at his residence, and described himself to guests as being 'as hard as Lenin's statue' The US government is protecting the identity of a senior American diplomat who they determined sexually assaulted a 22-year-old woman at a party he hosted at his residence while stationed at an American embassy. A copy of a report obtained through a Freedom of Information Request by DailyMail.com shows the Treasury Department substantiated an allegation that a high-ranking financial attaché forced the woman...

    President Trump was the center of another firestorm. During immigration negotiations with congressional leaders, the president reportedly said why are we letting people in from “s**thole countries.” Now, he was probably referring to the nations with temporary protective status, but the media blew a gasket. In the aftermath, the U.S. Ambassador to Panama, John Feeley, decided to resign, citing his inability to no longer being able to serve President Trump. The timing was just a coincidence, but some in the media decided to jump the gun and say that he resigned over the president’s remarks. One MSNBC producer took to...

Forensics suggests she died at 4:00 am Saturday morning. British ambassador Hugo Shorter issued the following statement.  The whole embassy is deeply shocked, saddened by this news. My thoughts...

    The Kingdom of Jordan is demanding Israel handover the Israeli embassy official who was wounded in Sunday evening’s terror attack in Amman, and has barred his return to Israel. On Sunday, the Israeli embassy in Amman’s deputy security officer was stabbed at his residence in the embassy compound by a Jordanian man who had been brought to move furniture. After he was stabbed, the security officer opened fire, killing the terrorist. A second Jordanian citizen, who was described in various media reports as being either a doctor employed at the embassy or the owner of the residence, was also killed...

    A US diplomat who allegedly took tens of thousands of dollars in cash and gifts from Chinese intelligence agents was charged on Wednesday with lying to investigators over the contacts. The case was announced days before the first summit between Chinese President Xi Jinping and his US counterpart Donald Trump in Florida next week, but Chinese analysts said the prosecution was unlikely to affect the meeting. The Department of Justice said Candace Marie Claiborne, 60, knew that the two Chinese men she had regular contact with while working for the US State Department in China and other countries were from...

    The White House on Monday warned State Department officials that they should leave their jobs if they did not agree with President Trump’s agenda, an extraordinary effort to stamp out a wave of internal dissent against Mr. Trump’s temporary ban on entry visas for people from seven predominantly Muslim countries. Career officials at the State Department are circulating a so-called dissent cable, which says that Mr. Trump’s executive order closing the nation’s doors to more than 200 million people to weed out a handful of would-be terrorists would not make the nation safer and might instead deepen the threat. “These...

    As Julian Assange has made crystal clear, the leaks did not come from the Russians. As I have explained countless times, they are not hacks, they are insider leaks – there is a major difference between the two. And it should be said again and again, that if Hillary Clinton had not connived with the DNC to fix the primary schedule to disadvantage Bernie, if she had not received advance notice of live debate questions to use against Bernie, if she had not accepted massive donations to the Clinton foundation and family members in return for foreign policy influence, if she had not...

    PYONGYANG, North Korea (AP) — North Korea's top diplomat for U.S. affairs told The Associated Press on Thursday that Washington "crossed the red line" and effectively declared war by putting leader Kim Jong Un on its list of sanctioned individuals, and said a vicious showdown could erupt if the U.S. and South Korea hold annual war games as planned next month. Han Song Ryol, director-general of the U.S. affairs department at the North's Foreign Ministry, said in an interview that recent U.S. actions have put the situation on the Korean Peninsula on a war footing. The United States and South...

    The United States last month expelled two Russian officials in response to an attack on an American diplomat by a Russian policeman in Moscow, the State Department said Friday, in a development that was sure to further strain already tense bilateral relations. The officials were expelled June 17, department spokesman John Kirby told reporters. He didn’t immediately provide additional information. Kirby said the American was attacked June 6 by a Russian guard outside the U.S. Embassy compound. Kirby said the attack was “unprovoked and it endangered the safety of our employee.” …

    In March 2009 Hillary Clinton announced that the Obama Adminstration was going to push the reset button with the Russians. Unfortunately, the administration bungled their delivery and spelled out “overcharge” rather than “restart” on their prop. An assistant shows the mock ‘reset’ button that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton handed to Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in Geneva in 2009. (AP Photo) Now this… A Russian guard was filmed this week tackling a US diplomat outside the US Embassy in Moscow.

    The Canadian teen charged in connection with a fatal Miami shooting is eligible for a county boot-camp program that would spare him significant time in jail, a court heard on Monday. Now, Miami-Dade prosecutors must decide if they will allow 15-year-old Marc Wabafiyebazu to enter the program as punishment for his role in a botched drug rip-off that left his older brother and another teen shot to death in March.

    Russia summoned Britain's defence attache in Moscow to explain reports that RAF pilots had been authorised to shoot down Russian aircraft in the Middle East, the Foreign Office says. Newspapers said RAF Tornados in Iraq had been fitted with heat-seeking missiles designed for aerial combat. But the Ministry of Defence said there was "absolutely no truth" in this. The Foreign Office said concern about Russian military action in Syria had been reiterated by the attache. Prime Minister David Cameron has previously said Russian military intervention in Syria is helping only to support "the butcher", President Bashar al-Assad. He has also...
