    The Russians continue to deny they are in violation of the INF Treaty, but if theyre indeed upgrading Tu-22s with in-flight refueling, this is another way theyre doing it in addition to building and deploying intermediate-range nukes on Russian soil. As part of the original treaty, the U.S. insisted that Russia remove the in-flight refueling capability from Tu-22s, making them less of a strategic asset. Adding it again means that they will have to be counted as such, under the INF and the New START Treaty, which expires in 2021. On many fronts, the U.S. and Russia are increasingly at...

    President Trump has indicated that he will withdraw the United States from a 1987 treaty signed with the former Soviet Union aimed at limiting intermediate-range ballistic missiles. Urged on by National Security Adviser John Bolton and others, the president believes that Russia has been cheating on the agreement, while the bulk of Chinas strategic missile arsenal falls within the range specified by the treaty (500 to 5,500 kilometers/310 to 3,417 miles).

    Speaking to reporters, Mr Trump said Russia had "violated" the 1987 Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) treaty. The US would not let Russia "go out and do weapons while we're not allowed to", Mr Trump said. "I don't know why President Obama didn't negotiate or pull out," the president said after a campaign rally in Nevada. "They've been violating it for many years." National Security Adviser John Bolton is expected to tell the Russians of the withdrawal during talks in Moscow later this week.

    White House chief of staff John Kelly and White House national security adviser John Bolton hurled expletives at one another during a loud argument outside the Oval Office on Thursday. The exchange between the two was so heated, White House aides were concerned that either Kelly or Bolton would depart their posts immediately, Bloomberg reports. Sources said the dispute began over a disagreement on how to handle the surge in border crossings, and Bolton was critical of how Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was handling her job. President Trump, who earlier in the day threatened to close our southern border...

    White House chief of staff John Kelly and national security adviser John Bolton got into a heated, profanity-laced shouting match outside the Oval Office on Thursday, according to multiple reports. CNN reported that the two men clashed over immigration policy in the wake of a government report that found a record number of migrant families illegally crossed the U.S. border in September. Bloomberg reported that the incident led some White House aides to wonder whether one of the senior officials might immediately resign in anger. Neither individual is expected to resign, however, and President Trump is aware of the dispute,...

    Was Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi murdered inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, and then his body cut up with a bone saw and flown to Riyadh in Gulfstream jets owned by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman? So contend the Turks, who have video from the consulate, photos of 15 Saudi agents who flew into Istanbul that day, Oct. 2, and the identity numbers of the planes. Supporting the thesis of either a murder in the consulate or a "rendition," a kidnaping gone horribly bad, is a Post story that U.S. intel intercepted Saudi planning, ordered by the prince, to...

    President Donald Trumps national security adviser, John Bolton, referred to the so-called state of Palestine while discussing the Middle East on Wednesday. Pressed to clarify his comments, Bolton said: Its accurate. Its not a state. He then used air quotes when mentioning Palestine again. Unlike the U.S. and 56 other nations, 137 member states of the United Nations officially recognize the Palestinian territories as a sovereign state. In 1948, the U.S. was the first country to officially recognize the state of Israel. Last month, the Trump administration announced it would shutter the Palestinian mission in Washington, D.C., which Palestinian leaders...

    National security adviser John Bolton defended his decision to eliminate a cybersecurity coordinator position at the White House, saying he "fixed" an overstaffing issue and that, "You know, the whole thing works." I inherited a structure in the national security staff that was duplicative and overlapping," Bolton told reporters in a briefing Thursday. Bolton, who took office in April, said cutting the job in May did not negatively impact the National Security Council's ability to craft cybersecurity policy and respond to threats.

    WASHINGTON (AP) President Donald Trump is closing the Palestine Liberation Organizations mission in Washington, the latest U.S. blow against the Palestinians and an international court during the stalled Mideast peace process. Some things to know: THE GIST The administrations move to close the PLO office in Washington is not directly connected to the Trump White Houses opposition to the International Criminal Court, although the administration is trying to link them. But the Trump administration is trotting out discussions about the two on the same day Rosh Hashana, the Jewish New Year in a move certain to inflame...

    The Administration has determined after careful review that the office of the General Delegation of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) in Washington should close. We have permitted the PLO office to conduct operations that support the objective of achieving a lasting, comprehensive peace between Israelis and the Palestinians since the expiration of a previous waiver in November 2017. However, the PLO has not taken steps to advance the start of direct and meaningful negotiations with Israel. To the contrary, PLO leadership has condemned a U.S. peace plan they have not yet seen and refused to engage with the U.S. government...
