    There is infighting among editorial hierarchy at The Washington Post about it’s only “in-depth” story about the expanding Imran Awan and Hina Alvi investigation, according to sources. The story was apparently put together with the cooperation of Awan’s lawyer Chris Gowen and sweeping legal team. No FBI sources are quoted in a story dealing with a federal investigation. And more than one news veteran at the Post agreed the end result was a “puff piece” that stinks like a cheap press release written by a first-year Congressional flak. “I don’t care if the guy is guilty or not,” said one...

    She had been orphaned by a brutal conflict, but the 14-year-old Congolese girl found refuge in a camp protected by United Nations peacekeepers. The camp should have been safe the day she was raped. A delegation from the U.N. was paying a visit, and her grandmother had left her in charge of her siblings. That was the day, the girl says, that a Pakistani peacekeeper slipped inside their home and assaulted her in front of the other children. But that was not the end of her story. Even though she reported the rape, the girl never got any help from...

    Video and photo evidence has surfaced that could prove Imran Awan maintained a chain of computer servers in the basement and locked garage area of an Alexandria, VA home he and wife Hina Alvi rented to a tenant. The embattled Awan couple did not reside at the home, however, did maintain separate internet service and a router which fed into a locked internal storage area connected to the home, according to an interview with former tenant Laurel Everly who rented the home for nine months from the Awans in 2014 and 2015. Everly has now provided photos and videos of...

    First they suppress our free speech and our publications, and next they come for us. We have reached a serious crossroads in censorship by Paypal, Facebook, and Google. Have you noticed that “anti-Islamic” references have been suppressed by our media and even our President as of late? I have noticed it, and now I have shocking validation from Alex Jones of INFOWARS and Richard Spencer of JIHAD WATCH. We are in serious danger, and we are losing our sacred freedoms in the United States. We are seeing the Sharia agenda infiltrate this Country, and it is no conspiracy theory. The...

    A secret server is behind the Capitol Police’s decision to ban a former IT aide to Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz from the House network. Now-indicted former congressional IT aide Imran Awan allegedly routed data from numerous House Democrats to a secret server. Police grew suspicious and requested a copy of the server early this year, but they were provided with an elaborate falsified image designed to hide the massive violations. The falsified image is what ultimately triggered their ban from the House network Feb. 2, according to a senior House official with direct knowledge of the investigation. The secret server was connected...

The exercises began on Thursday and will run until September 27. According to Xinhua, China’s state news agency, a spokesperson for the PLAAF noted that China had sent a wide range of aerial assets and troops, including Shenyang J-11 twin-engine multirole fighters, Xian JH-7 fighter-bombers, KJ-200 airborne warning and control system (AWACS) aircraft, and surface-to-air missile crews and radar operators.Xinhua added that Pakistan had sent an undisclosed number of JF-17 Thunder fighters and its own early warning...

    ISLAMABAD/MOSCOW – The Pakistan Army Aviation Corps (PAAC) took delivery of four Russian-made Mi-35M attack helicopters, Pakistan’s Defense Export Promotion Organization (DEPO) has confirmed. “The contract was signed, we received all four cars [Mi-35Ms] and now we get new equipment,” DEPOs Brigadier General Waheed Mumtaz told reporters in Moscow at International Military-Technical Forum (Army 2017), which took place August 22-27 in Moscow.

Pakistan and Russia agreed to the $153 million helicopter deal, which included training, spare parts and ground support equipment, during then-Chief...

    Despite being suspected of allegedly stealing computer equipment and sensitive information from Congress, Democrat Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s ex-IT staffer Imran Awan still has access to an active House email account. To make matters worse, the email address is tied to an intelligence staffer. Daily Caller reports: Imran Awan’s still-active email address is linked to the name of a House staffer who specializes in intelligence and homeland security matters for Indiana Democratic Rep. André Carson. Court documents and emails obtained by TheDCNF show Awan used the address 123@mail.house.gov in addition to his standard imran.awan@mail.house.gov account. He and two of his...

    After the botched coup, Turkey fired pilots and to counter the insufficiency it asked Pakistan to provide three pilots Pakistan welcomed the request but US, using the clauses of F-16 purchase agreement, barred Turkey from hiring Pakistani pilots for training ANKARA- The US government has reportedly turned down a proposal put forth by Turkey to use Pakistani pilots for F-16 training, hinting at the fraught relations between Washington and Islamabad. The refusal was quoted by a pro-government columnist Mehmet Acet, who in Yeni Åžafak daily claimed that Turkish Air Forces had asked Pakistan to send three F-16 pilots to train...

    Like millions of Americans, I watched President Donald Trump’s speech from my living room on August 21, 2017. It is the third time an American president has addressed our nation on Afghanistan, now the longest war in American history. To those of us familiar with the region, the speech was business as usual, with a few notable changes. But for those Americans with loved ones in Pakistan, the president’s speech was a plainspoken warning – fall in line Pakistan, or face the consequences. Taking the speech to its furthest extrapolation, without change, Pakistan will soon face US sanctions. Certainly for...

    ******************************************************** The more you learn about Democratic IT scammer Imran Awan — the more you see the profile of a bold and careless criminal mind. Imran Awan worked for Debbie Wasserman Schultz for thirteen years since she came into office in 2004 as a Florida representative. She only fired him this past week and would have kept paying her “IT expert” even when he was living in Pakistan. The Awan brothers IT ring had access to emails and computer data from an estimated 800 lawmakers and staffers. Three Pakistani brothers who managed the IT affairs for several Democratic government officials...

    FBI agents suspect somebody in Congress tipped off the Awans that they would be indicted and now the criminal cases once-seemingly isolated to a group of rogue Pakistani IT specialists working for Congress suddenly has gotten much larger. And much more troubling. Federal agents said preceding his arrest, Imran Awan acted like a man who was recently tipped off that he would be pinched and moreover, it was no coincidence Awan’s wife was whisked out of the country in March after sidestepping the FBI at Dulles International Airport to flee to Pakistan. “She had cardboard boxes for luggage,” one FBI...

  • Historically Has Any Empire Won A War Of Counter Insurgency?

    Historically speaking has any Empire won a war of counter insurgency? I'm hearing this talk about Afghanistan, and do not know the answer? I think the odds are not good when you think of the American Revolution, Vietnam, Kashmir, Pakistan, Afghanistan, etc.. and an added bonus the "rules of engagement". For the record, I am very strong President Trump supporter. Love the guy and will support him 100%. Just looking for good answers. Thanks!

    China on Tuesday jumped to the defence of its all-weather ally Pakistan in the wake of United States President Donald Trump's stern warning to it over providing safe havens to terrorists, saying that Islamabad is at the frontline of combating terrorism. Trump, in his first prime-time televised address to announce his Afghanistan and South Asia policy, hit out at Pakistan for providing safe havens to 'agents of chaos' that kill Americans in Afghanistan and warned Islamabad that it has 'much to lose' by harbouring terrorists. Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying, while reacting to Trump's comments on Pakistan, said, "Hope the relevant policy decision by US...

    The United States on Tuesday ruled out a hasty withdrawal of its troops from Afghanistan as President Donald Trump warned Pakistan of consequences if it continues to provide safe havens to terror groups and sought an enhanced role for India to bring peace in the war-torn country. Trump, in a prime-time televised address to the nation, laid out his South Asia policy saying a 'critical part' of it was to further develop US' strategic partnership with India. He said after a 'comprehensive review', it has been decided that the American strategy in Afghanistan and South Asia will change dramatically. "A...
