The Post says the CIA had multiple sources of intelligence, which included a call between Khashoggi, a U.S. resident and Saudi expatriate, with the crown prince’s brother, Khalid bin Salman, the country’s ambassador to the U.S. Khalid reportedly reassured Khashoggi that it would be safe to visit the embassy to pick up documents the writer needed to marry his fiancée, a Turkish citizen.
The latest outrage is found in newly declassified documents from 2014. They reveal the CIA not only intercepted emails of U.S. citizens but they were emails of the most sensitive kind — written to Congress and involving whistleblowers reporting alleged wrongdoing within the Intelligence Community.
In 2013, hundreds of CIA officers — many working nonstop for weeks — scrambled to contain a disaster of global proportions: a compromise of the agency’s internet-based covert communications system used to interact with its informants in dark corners around the world. Teams of CIA experts worked feverishly to take down and reconfigure the websites secretly used for these communications; others managed operations to quickly spirit assets to safety and oversaw other forms of triage.
“When this was going on, it was all that mattered,” said one former intelligence community official. The situation was “catastrophic,” said another former senior intelligence official.
While Amazon continues to provide a lot of products and a really good deal with their Prime membership, they are also going down the road of tyranny and censorship due to their founder’s ties to the Central Intelligence Agency. The latest news of their censorship and promotion of Islamic Jihad, and I might add hypocrisy, comes as Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch exposes what Amazon has done to attack him, his site and the voices of those who point out what Islam truly is all about.
Terrorism has engulfed the whole globe but it has played havoc in the Muslim world. The world has known famous and notorious terrorist organizations i.e.AL-QAEDA and ISIS has made the gulf a real battleground. The blood bathing of this area is not a hidden story anymore. Al-Qaeda and ISIS -both following the Salafist ideology- have brought Iraq and Syria to ruins. These are the terrorist outfits aspiring to establish a caliphate. They are self-proclaimed jihadist organizations, however, acting contradictory from the true ideology of jihad in Islam.
The US government has identified a suspect in the high-profile leak of CIA hacking tools last year.
In March of 2017, WikiLeaks published more than 8,000 classified documents detailing hacking tools and strategy of the CIA. At the time, the CIA and FBI said a criminal investigation would be launched to find the culprit behind the biggest leak since the Snowden files.
The left-wing “investigative journalism” site ProPublica, a non-profit funded in part by far-left billionaire George Soros, was forced to walk back an attack piece aimed at Gina Haspel, President Trump’s pick to lead the CIA.
Rex Tillerson Fired from State Department, Mike Pompeo Will Be Replacement
And he appointed Gina Haspel the 1st woman as CIA Director… because Trump Hates Wimmins!
Knowledgeable reporters on the left and right are frightened by the spread of an elite conspiracy theory among American media
Half the country hates Donald Trump, and even the half that thinks he’s doing a good job often flinch from his boorishness, his nasty public attacks, sometimes even on his own aides. For all the top talent he says he’s surrounded himself with, the president repeatedly attracts among the worst that Washington—and New York—have to offer. No doubt that’s one reason why whatever is thrown at him seems to stick.
At the same time, there is a growing consensus among reporters and thinkers on the left and right—especially those who know anything about Russia, the surveillance apparatus, and intelligence bureaucracy—that the Russiagate-collusion theory that was supposed to end Trump’s presidency within six months has sprung more than a few holes. Worse, it has proved to be a cover for U.S. intelligence and law-enforcement bureaucracies to break the law, with what’s left of the press gleefully going along for the ride. Where Watergate was a story about a crime that came to define an entire generation’s oppositional attitude toward politicians and the country’s elite, Russiagate, they argue, has proved itself to be the reverse: It is a device that the American elite is using to define itself against its enemies—the rest of the country.
A wave of pioneers is poised to scoop up treasure from the deep sea.
But was this ocean mining boom sparked by a 1970s CIA plot?
A renowned Iranian-Canadian environmentalist who died in an Iran prison was part of an espionage network set up by Israel’s Mossad and the CIA, according to Tehran’s chief prosecutor.
Kavous Seyed-Emami, a 63-year-old professor of sociology at Imam Sadeq University in Tehran and the managing director of the Persian Heritage Wildlife Foundation, was found dead in his cell last Friday.
“I am reluctantly turning in my badge and leaving an organization I love,” wrote FBI agent Josh Campbell, in a February 2 op-ed for the New York Times.” He is leaving the Bureau, he said, so he can “join the growing chorus” of voices denouncing “the relentless attacks on the bureau” by President Trump. The attacks by the Trump administration and Republicans on the politicized, upper-echelon bureaucrats at the FBI, said Campbell, “undermine not just America’s premier law enforcement agency but also the nation’s security.”
A former Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) officer suspected of compromising American spies in China, has been arrested after authorities discovered notebooks filled with the details of informants working.
Jerry Chun Shing Lee, also known as Zhen Cheng Li, is suspected of aiding the collapse of the US spy operations in China, which saw dozens of informants jailed or killed from 2010 onwards.
Mr Lee, a 53-year-old naturalized US citizen, was detained at New York’s JFK airport on Monday and charged with retaining highly classified information.
Mr Lee, who now lives in Hong Kong, worked for the CIA between 1994 and 2007 and had top-level security clearance.
It is reported that several members of the intelligence community suspected a mole within the agency at the time.
The biggest scandal of our time is the manner in which the Democratic Party, under Barack Obama, weaponized the intelligence agencies and the FBI for political purposes. An obscure news story–obscure but for the fact that it was linked by Drudge–suggests that the CIA may have used entertainment personalities to smear Donald Trump shortly after his inauguration.
Donald Trump’s reaction to an intelligence community that overplayed its hand turns out to be understandable.
Michael Morell, former acting head of the CIA, became a political animal in August 2016 when he endorsed Hillary Clinton for president. This month, he came to grips with the consequences of that decision — that it might have played into President Donald Trump’s distrust of the intelligence community.
It is possible, he told the Review Journal, “I played a role in that.”
Back to last year. In an opinion piece in the New York Times, Morell not only endorsed Clinton, he also warned that, to the eyes of an intelligence analyst, candidate Trump could be considered “an unwitting agent of the Russian Federation” whom Russian President Vladimir Putin had coopted by playing to Trump’s demanding ego.
