    It is impossible to evaluate events in Russia today without understanding the mysterious series of bombings in 1999 that killed 300 civilians and created the conditions for Vladimir Putin to become Russia’s dictator for life. The bombings changed the course of Russia’s post-Soviet history. They were blamed on the Chechens. In the wake of initial success, Russia launched a new invasion of Chechnya. Putin, who had just been appointed prime minister, was put in charge of the invasion and his popularity soared. Six months later, he was elected president. On July 14, 2016, I filed a request for documents on...

    Bill McRaven, former chancellor of the University of Texas System and a current UT-Austin professor, resigned on Aug. 20 from the Pentagon’s technology advisory board, multiple news outlets reported Thursday. His resignation came four days after The Washington Post published an opinion piece he wrote that criticized President Donald Trump’s decision to revoke the security clearance of former CIA director John Brennan. “Through your actions, you have embarrassed us in the eyes of our children, humiliated us on the world stage and, worst of all, divided us as a nation,” McRaven wrote. “If you think for a moment that your...
  • The KGB's Middle East Files: Arab Palestinians in the service of Mother Russia

    Ynet Israel ^ | Nov 2016 | Ronen Bergman
    Secret KGB documents reveal just how deeply involved the Soviet Union was in the spilling of Israeli blood. The Russian spy agency provided Palestinian terror organizations with funds, training and arms, running agents like 'Krotov' - aka Mahmoud Abbas, 'Aref' - or Yasser Arafat, and 'Nationalist,' who was behind several plane hijackings long before 9/11. The genesis of the KGB’s developing ties with Palestinian terror organizations can be traced back to the end of the 1960s. The two most important KGB recruitments from the PLO during the second half of the 1970s were of people who still play a major...

    Terry Strada, a leader of the group 9/11 Families & Survivors United for Justice Against Terrorism, will mourn again this year, but not at the site where the towers once stood and her husband died. She plans to attend “a private service” at the Shrine of St. Joseph in Stirling, New Jersey, which she said has “a beautiful and solemn space” dedicated to all who died in the 9/11 attacks. But she is also full of fury at the government’s refusal to release all it knows about the run-up to the attacks. “It’s very sad that we’re still being kept...

    There has been a “missing man” in all of the analyses and dissections and reporting of the covert “Spygate” operation run by Barack Obama’s CIA and FBI, along with British intelligence and the Five Eyes, to smear and frame Donald Trump for alleged “Russian collusion.” Chalet Reports is prepared to say that the crucial missing piece of the puzzle was Greg Vogle, who at all relevant times was the director of the dirtiest and most criminal division in the history of the CIA, the infamous National Clandestine Service, a repackaging of the notorious CIA Directorate of Operations, which—in the CIA’s...

    Wednesday, 18 March 2015 Donald Trump announces formation of a “presidential exploratory committee,” and that he will not review the contract for his TV show. And then, in one of the weirdest “coincidences” we’ve ever encountered, less than two weeks after Donald Trump’s 18 March announcement … Tuesday, 7 April 2015 Svetlana Lokhova—the Russian graduate of Cambridge University, and “the daughter of a Russian shipping magnate” who had been connected with Michael Flynn at the Cambridge Intelligence Seminar by Stefan Halper and Richard Dearlove on or about 6 February 2014 [see above]—is awarded £3.2 million [a little over $4.1 million]...

    The FBI, by operation of law, not opinion, is a puppet that dances on the strings of the CIA. Oh, the FBI can chase around after all the bank robbers and moonshiners it wants, but if a case even hints of there being any involvement by external, foreign actors, the CIA is all over it like a cheap suit, and the FBI dances only to the CIA’s tune—and therein lies the answer to Russiagate, Spygate, and Watergate alike. And therein also lies the entire explanation of why DCI John Brennan and the CIA planted covert operatives inside the Trump campaign...

    "It was considered one of the CIA’s worst failures in decades: Over a two-year period starting in late 2010, Chinese authorities systematically dismantled the agency’s network of agents across the country, executing dozens of suspected U.S. spies. But since then, a question has loomed over the entire debacle. How were the Chinese able to roll up the network? Now, nearly eight years later, it appears that the agency botched the communication system it used to interact with its sources, according to five current and former intelligence officials. The CIA had imported the system from its Middle East operations, where the...

    Full headline: Was Hillary Clinton or Dianne Feinstein responsible for the exposure and deaths of 20 CIA spies in China? Criminal Negligence: One of the biggest espionage scandals of the century was briefly exposed earlier this month after a California newspaper reported that a Chinese spy had worked for Sen. Dianne Feinstein for 20 years. Politico — a Left-wing “mainstream” news source if there ever was one — included the bombshell detail as part of a larger report detailing Chinese (and Russian) spying in Silicon Valley, where the nerve center for cutting-edge U.S. technology development is located. Fast-forward to this...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - China killed or imprisoned 18 to 20 CIA sources from 2010 to 2012, hobbling U.S. spying operations in a massive intelligence breach whose origin has not been identified, the New York Times reported on Saturday. Investigators remain divided over whether there was a spy within the Central Intelligence Agency who betrayed the sources or whether the Chinese hacked the CIA's covert communications system, the newspaper reported, citing current and former U.S. officials.

    Adam Lovinger, a former Defense Department analyst ... a whistleblower, is now battling to save his career. The Pentagon suspended his top-secret security clearance May 1, 2017, when he exposed through an internal review that Stefan Halper, who was then an emeritus Cambridge professor, had received roughly $1 million in tax-payer funded money to write Defense Department foreign policy reports, his attorney Sean Bigley said. Before Lovinger's clearance was suspended he had taken a detail to the National Security Council as senior director for strategy. He was only there for five months before he was recalled to the Pentagon, stripped...

    On or about Tuesday, 1 March 2016, CIA Director John Brennan flew to Moscow. He went to the offices of the Russian equivalent to the CIA, the Federal Security Service (FSB)—successor to the KGB—and he went “somewhere else” (yes, that’s exactly what Russia’s foreign ministry said about it). He did not to go to the foreign ministry. ... At almost the exact same time, in “late February or early March,” a world-class nobody living in London named George Papadopoulos somehow got his resumé pumped full of hot fluff by somehow becoming listed as a member of the London Centre of...

    U.S. authorities put alleged Boston bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev on two separate watch lists in 2011 after Russian security agencies twice reached out to their American counterparts, raising new questions about missed opportunities to prevent the attack. Russian officials contacted the Federal Bureau of Investigation in March 2011, then reached out to the Central Intelligence Agency in September of that year, citing concerns Mr. Tsarnaev might have been associating with extremists, according to U.S. officials.The FBI has said it interviewed Mr. Tsarnaev and conducted a threat assessment, but found nothing "derogatory" that could prompt further investigation. A U.S. law-enforcement official said...

    A "clarification" from former CIA director John Brennan.  He called Trump's performance during a press conference with Vladimir Putin "nothing short of treason" but now claims he didn't mean that Trump committed treason. Glad we got that cleared up, John. The Hill: Brennan clarified the comment during an interview Friday, after MSNBC's Rachel Maddow said Brennan said the press conference "rose to treason." The former CIA director disputed the characterization of his "treason" tweet, saying that he felt compelled to make the comment after Trump sided with Putin's denials of Russia's election interference. "And for Mr. Trump to so cavalierly so dismiss...

    Former CIA Director John Brennan risked damaging the intelligence community with his anti-Trump comments, retired Adm. Michael Mullen, former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told "Fox News Sunday." Mullen's comments came as several former intelligence officials appeared on Sunday talk shows, including Brennan -- who floated the possibility of taking legal action against the president. "I think John's an extraordinary servant of the country, but I think he has been incredibly critical of the president, and I think that has put him in a political place which actually does more damage for the intelligence community -- which is...

Michael Cohen is also being probed over deals to buy the silence of women who claimed they had affairs with Trump, The New York Times reported. Federal authorities are in the final stage of their investigation and are weighing charges including bank and tax fraud and violations of campaign finance law, people familiar with the matter told the paper.
