    A former member of the Obama administration claims Washington, D.C., often uses ďmisleadingĒ news releases about climate data to influence public opinion. Former Energy Department Undersecretary Steven Koonin told The Wall Street Journal Monday that bureaucrats within former President Barack Obamaís administration spun scientific data to manipulate public opinion. ďWhat you saw coming out of the press releases about climate data, climate analysis, was, Iíd say, misleading, sometimes just wrong,Ē Koonin said, referring to elements within the Obama administration he said were responsible for manipulating climate data. He pointed to a National Climate Assessment in 2014 showing hurricane activity has...

    Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu revealed in a Knesset committee meeting that former US President Barack Obama requested Israel not send ground forces into Gaza during 2014ís Operation Protective Edge. The meetingís purpose was to critique how Israel fought Operation Protective Edge, and use that to see how to make the progress of the next war against Hamas, if needed, better. Netanyahu related, ďI explained to President Obama that if they continue not accepting the ceasefires, we will have no choice but to send in ground forces. He told me, ĎI am asking you not to send in ground forces.í...

    Donald Trumpís pick for Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, is a familiar name in Venezuela Ė and some are wondering if a decade-old feud will play a role in the bilateral agenda. The longtime chief executive officer of Exxon Mobil became persona non grata among socialist Chavistas in the late 2000s, when he confronted then President Hugo Chavez as they negotiated compensation arrangements after the oil industry was nationalized. ďI donít know if Tillerson will personalize his relationship with Venezuela or implement an institutional policy,Ē said Venezuelan analyst Luis Salamanca to FoxNews.com, also pointing out that the U.S. has nothing...

    Islamist groups seized the headquarters of the Libyan army's special forces in Libya's second city Benghazi after days of fighting, as a huge blaze raged at a fuel depot near the capital's airport. An Islamist and jihadist alliance announced the capture Tuesday of the main military base in the eastern city in a statement which was confirmed by an army official. He said jihadists of Ansar al-Sharia, blacklisted as a terrorist organisation by Washington, were among the groups. Intense fighting in Benghazi for the past week has claimed about 60 lives since Saturday, medical officials in the city said. "Special...

    Following the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, psychologist and U.S. Air Force veteran Dr. James Mitchell was called back to national service. Along with a partner, Bruce Jessen, he was tasked with developing the CIAís enhanced interrogation techniques, or EITs. Designed to elicit time-sensitive intelligence from hardened al Qaeda leaders, the EITs later became immersed in controversy. In 2014, Senate Democrats released a report accusing Mitchell of torturing suspects with EITs and producing no results. In his new book, Enhanced Interrogation, Mitchell offers his own testimony on the EITs. He argues that the techniques were critical in saving the lives...

    The Obama administration recently gave a $270,000 grant to an Islamic charity that has been banned by Israel and the United Arab Emirates because of alleged financial ties to the terrorist group Hamas and to the Muslim Brotherhood. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services provided the funds last month to the U.K.-based Islamic Relief Worldwide ... In 2014, Israel and United Arab Emirates banned IRW, which is headquartered in Birmingham, England, from operating within its borders alleging that the group supports and funds Hamas, the Muslim Brotherhoodís military arm in Palestine.

    President-elect Donald Trumpís pick for national security adviser, among the most important jobs in the still-forming Trump administration, has said some pretty incendiary things on the Internet. Before being tapped to advise Trump on national security issues, retired Lt. Gen. Michael T. Flynn was an intelligence officer and head of the Defense Intelligence Agency under President Obama until he was removed from his command in 2014 over his leadership style. Flynn went on to criticize some of his superiors, including Obama, regarding their stances on Islamist extremism. He also traveled to Russia on a trip paid for by state-run media...

    **SNIP** Valerie Plame, the ex-CIA operative outed by the W. Bush administration, also chimed in. ďAstonishing: White House mistakenly identifies CIA chief in Afghanistan,Ē she tweeted in a sardonic message on Monday. The name of the CIAís chief of station in Kabul, the agencyís top spy in Afghanistan, was listed among the 15 officials briefing Obama upon his arrival at Bagram Air Base. The White House only caught the error when Washington Post reporter Scott Wilson alerted the press office, after Obamaís schedule was included in an email that was circulated to as many as 6,000 members of the media.

    The International Criminal Courtís chief prosecutor has suggested the US may have committed war crimes in Afghanistan. An investigation would expose US forces to ICC scrutiny for the first time. Delivering her annual report to members of the International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague on Monday, chief prosecutor Fatou Bensouda said she would decide ďimminentlyĒ whether to ask judges for permission to launch a full-blown investigation as to whether US military forces and CIA operatives may have committed war crimes in Afghanistan through the ďcruel or violentĒ interrogation of detainees. Bensouda said the Taliban, Afghan government forces and US...

Lieutenant General Michael Flynn, director of the DIA between 2012 and 2014, confirmed that his agency had sent a constant stream of classified warnings to the civilian leadership about the dire consequences of toppling Assad. The jihadists, he said, were in control of the opposition. Turkey wasn‚Äôt doing enough to stop the smuggling...

    Only weeks after the White House made headlines with a directive urging prosecutors to get tougher on corporate crime, the Obama administration has moved to protect a convicted financial firm from punishment. The bank, Credit Suisse, has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to President Barack Obamaís political campaigns. It also employs the Podesta Group, a lobbying firm with family connections to the Obama administration and Hillary Clintonís 2016 campaign. In 2014, Credit Suisse pleaded guilty to criminal charges for operating ďan illegal cross-border banking business that knowingly and willfully aided and assisted thousands of U.S. clients in opening and...

WikiLeaks released a 2014 email conversation between Clinton and her current campaign Chairman John Podesta about the tactical situation in Iraq and elsewhere in the Middle East. In what until today was the latest available email in the chain, Clinton stated that "there may be opportunities as the Iraqi piece improves." She also asked Podesta if he had "any idea...
