    Inside the government, some officials called her “Wayward Storm.” Her real name was Monica Elfriede Witt, an exemplary Air Force counterintelligence agent who had studied Persian and carried out covert missions in Iraq, Saudi Arabia and Qatar. But by mid-2013, Ms. Witt had become disillusioned with the government — why, exactly, remains a mystery — and had left the military. Thoughts of betrayal consumed her, federal prosecutors now say, until she finally acted on them at the Iranian Embassy in Kabul, where they say she “told all.”

    Democratic Rep. Joe Kennedy III called on the White House Wednesday to publicly recount what occurred in the private meeting between President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin. If the White House does not come forward, Congress should bring the president's translator to testify, under subpoena if necessary, the Massachusetts congressman suggested during an interview on CNN’s "New Day." Mr. Kennedy acknowledged that the proposal is complicated by potential legal issues around privilege, but he said "it shouldn’t get that far."

    AUGUSTA, Ga. – A judge has ruled that a woman charged with leaking secrets to a reporter will remain jailed until her trial after prosecutors argued that she might possess more stolen intelligence and could try to flee the country. Winner worked for a U.S. government contractor in Augusta. She is a former Air Force linguist who speaks Farsi and Arabic. Prosecutors don't think Winner is a jihadist or terrorist sympathizer, they say that before she left the military, she inserted an external hard drive into a top-secret computer there. They say they don't know what happened to it or...

    KABUL — When Ahmad Ghyasi fled Afghanistan for Germany last fall, he left with a stack of papers he was sure would help his case for asylum. He had evidence he was a Taliban target and references from the U.S. military. But German authorities made it clear, Ghyasi said, that it was unlikely they would ever grant him asylum. And now Ghyasi, a longtime interpreter for U.S. forces, is back in Afghanistan after just three months abroad. Today, German and Afghan officials are negotiating an agreement that could see thousands of Afghans return to the country on either chartered or...

    (Reuters) - Iranian-American Amir Hekmati, a former U.S. Marine whose previous death sentence in Iran on espionage charges was overturned, has been secretly retried, convicted of collaborating with the U.S. government and sentenced to 10 years in prison, the New York Times reported on Friday, quoting his lawyer.

The Times quoted Tabatabaei as saying Hekmati was retried by a revolutionary court in December and convicted of "practical collaboration with the American government." :snip: The...

(You can watch the video here.)It’s not quite the real-time universal translator that characters on “Star Trek” used to speak to alien life forms. And inevitably for a technology...
