    Three of the top cybersecurity officials at the Federal Bureau of Investigation are retiring from government service, according to people familiar with the matter—departures that come as cyberattacks are a major concern for the country’s security agencies. Senior U.S. intelligence officials warn that the country is at a “critical point” facing unprecedented cyberthreats, including Russia’s ongoing attacks on the American political system. The retirements also come as the FBI is facing regular criticism from President Donald Trump and his supporters, and is working to attract and retain top cyber talent. Scott Smith, the assistant FBI director who runs the Bureau’s...
  • Kerry: I ‘Don’t Buy’ Trump’s Walk Back of Helsinki Comments

    During a portion of an interview with CBS’ “Face the Nation” released on Thursday, former Secretary of State John Kerry criticized President Trump’s press conference with Vladimir Putin in Helsinki and stated he didn’t believe President Trump’s walk back of his comments, asking, “how can anyone buy walk back after walk back, when you take positions here, and then you take positions over here and you’re repetitively walking back and changing?” Kerry said he found the Helsinki presser “shocking. I found it to be one of the most disgraceful, remarkable moments of kowtowing to a foreign leader by an American...
  • First Win for Trump-Putin Summit: Agreement to Restrain Iran in Syria

    Breitbart ^ | July 18, 2018 | Joel B. Pollak
    President Donald Trump has been criticized by the media and by Beltway politicians of both parties for his meeting with Russian president Vladimir Putin in Helsinki on Monday. But the summit has already produced a very significant win: namely, agreement to avoid a war in the Middle East by restraining Iran in Syria. As Breitbart News columnist Caroline Glick noted last month, it was crucial that Trump confront Putin over Syria, because Russia was about to allow Iranian and Hezbollah soldiers, dressed in Syrian uniforms, to move into southwestern Syria along the border with Israel and Jordan.

    US President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin discussed Israel, Syria and Iran at their meeting in Helsinki on Monday and in subsequent comments to the press. The public comments provide some insight into their view of the future Middle East. With the Syrian regime conducting a major offensive in the south, the US deeply involved in eastern Syria and Israel demanding that the Iranians leave, these were central topics of concern. On Iran, Putin said the Iranian nuclear deal had helped ensure “the peaceful nature of its nuclear program.” Trump emphasized the need to pressure Iran and “stop...

    Behold Israel YouTube Channel ^ | July 17, 2018 | Amir Tsarfati
    Amir discusses the meeting between Trump and Putin. Both Russia and the U.S., and of course Israel, want the Iranians out of Syria but they remain, discovered to be dressed as Syrian soldiers. Anti-migration sentiment grows in Sweden, France has migrant riots after the World Cup victory, and protests continue in the streets in Iran. The basic point: There is a group of wealthy families that is running, or trying to run, the world. After they create enough trouble for themselves and everyone else, they will cry out for a deliverer, a messiah, who will be the Antichrist.

    Christian Post ^ | 07/18/2018 | Jonathan Tobin
    As far as much of the American public is concerned, the timing for U.S. President Donald Trump's meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin couldn't be worse. The indictments of 12 Russian military intelligence officers on Friday renewed the calls for a tougher stance from the administration against Moscow. But with Trump determined to achieve some sort of détente with Russia, the indictments gave ammunition to his critics who see the meeting as appeasement or worse. But while Americans are deeply divided about the highly politicized topic of relations with Russia, many Israelis seem to be taking a very different view...

    Iran has filed a lawsuit against the United States alleging that Washington’s decision in May to impose sanctions after pulling out of a nuclear deal violates a 1955 treaty between the two countries, the International Court of Justice said on Tuesday. A State Department official said the application was without merit and the United States would fight it in the court. “While we cannot comment on the specifics, Iran’s application is baseless and we intend to vigorously defend the United States before the ICJ,” a State Department official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told Reuters.

  • Iran must halt execution of Ramin Hossein Panahi, say UN rights experts

    07/17/2018 8:24:47 PM PDT · by Texas Fossil · 8 replies
    GENEVA (18 June 2018) – UN human rights experts* have made a fresh call to Iran to annul the death sentence imposed on Iranian Kurd Ramin Hossein Panahi, amid reports that he will be executed after the end of the holy month of Ramadan. The execution of Mr. Panahi was previously set for 3 May, but was postponed. It is understood that a request for a judicial review was rejected by the Iranian Supreme Court in late May, and the sentence against him was then referred to the office responsible for carrying it out.“The Iranian authorities must now halt the...

    The Deep State rabbit hole just got a little deeper. Did you know anti-Trump FBI official Peter Strzok grew up in Iran and Saudi Arabia? Strzok’s father, Peter Strzok Sr. was in Iran when Muslim hardliners stormed the U.S. embassy, took hostages, and overthrew the U.S. friendly government. Since that time Iran has been a “death to America” fixture in the Middle East. Strzok Sr. was supportive of the Iranian revolution. Fast forward several decades later and you want to know who headed the Obama-era outreach to Iran where hundreds of millions of dollars were given to the radical Islamic...

    TEL AVIV — The Mossad agents moving in on a warehouse in a drab commercial district of Tehran knew exactly how much time they had to disable the alarms, break through two doors, cut through dozens of giant safes and get out of the city with a half-ton of secret materials: six hours and 29 minutes... The agents arrived that night, Jan. 31, with torches that burned at least 3,600 degrees, hot enough, as they knew from intelligence collected during the planning of the operation, to cut through the 32 Iranian-made safes...

    You gotta love Mossad. Agents snuck into a warehouse smack in the middle of Tehran last January and, in a 6 1/2-hour operation, managed to steal 100,000 documents that Israel says prove Iran was lying about their nuclear weapons program. Wall Street Journal: The Israeli team secretly reached the warehouse holding the materials and broke in during a tight time window when it knew the building would be unguarded, the officials said. To avoid drawing attention to the nondescript facility, Iran hadn’t posted full-time guards, they said, but rather relied on alarm systems that the Israeli agents disabled. The Israeli...

    During the July 2018 NATO summit, elements of the USA newsmedia focused on President Trump’s accurate attacks on Western Europe’s contradictory actions and positions in the arenas of defense and commerce. What the USA newsmedia covered much less was how welcome those points were to NATO members from Eastern Europe, whose memories of Russian aggression are much more recent, perhaps, than those of Western Europe, making them as wary of these issues as Mr. Trump is. Delegates from Poland, Lithuania, and Romania, for example, appeared just as happy about Mr. Trump’s comments as delegates from England, France and especially Germany...
  • Mossad raid in Iran nets thousands of documents on nuclear program

    American Thinker ^ | 07/16/2018 | Rick Moran
    Sometime last January, several agents belonging to Israel's intelligence service Mossad, approached a non-descript warehouse in Tehran. After disabling a few alarms and bypassing other security measures, the agents entered the building.  The agents had hit the jackpot. Over 61/2 hours, the agents removed tens of thousands of documents relating to Iran's nuclear program. The documents included warhead designs and information on how other countries had assisted Iran in their nuclear program. The upshot is that the documents - as Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in a speech last April when he made the raid public - prove...

    The archive of Iranian nuclear documents seized by the Israeli Mossad from a Tehran warehouse in January shows that Iran’s program to build nuclear weapons “was almost certainly larger, more sophisticated and better organized” than was suspected, unnamed nuclear experts were quoted as saying in the New York Times on Sunday, after being shown selected documents from the haul by US reporters. One of the Iranian documents specifies plans to build a first “batch of five weapons” and discusses sites for possible underground nuclear tests, the Times reported, after one of its reporters was given limited access to the haul...

    Israel is ramping up attacks against Iranian supply lines in Syria to block the flow of weapons to Hezbollah and other Tehran-backed militias, as it seeks to drive its foe away from its borders. In June Israel targeted a far-flung compound near the Syria-Iraq border, according to a security official, after carrying out multiple strikes closer to home against suspected Iranian military assets in Syria, where Iran is a key backer of President Bashar al-Assad. Israel, in accordance with its usual practice, didn’t confirm or deny it carried out the June airstrike. The U.S. denied responsibility, and a U.S. official...
