  • Bombshell: Pentagon 'Didn't Know' Benghazi Annex Existed

    Raises major questions about what U.S. was doing in secretive facility. The extensive Senate report on the Sept. 11, 2012, Benghazi attack dropped a major, unreported bombshell: The commander of U.S. forces in Africa was not aware of the existence of the besieged CIA annex. The staggering detail raises the question of what was transpiring at the fated annex and nearby U.S. special mission and why key members of the Defense Department, including those responsible for responding to emergency situations, were not aware of it. Questions now must be also raised as to why, on the night of attack, command...
  • Why a nervous Hillary Clinton is remarkably silent on Syria

    **SNIP** I suspect a number of factors are behind Hillary Clinton’s reticence. Firstly, a US military intervention in the Syrian civil war is strongly opposed by the vast majority of the American public. A recent poll showed just nine percent of Americans backing US military involvement. She probably doesn’t see another war in the Muslim world as a vote winner in 2016. Secondly, she may well be harbouring doubts over the White House approach, which beyond the talk of airstrikes, lacks a coherent strategy, and the president hasn’t exactly made a clear-cut case that taking America to war in Syria...

  • Benghazi Impeachment Suddenly Not So Far-Fetched

    On October 27th, 2012, only days before the presidential election, I wrote: If Barack Obama is reelected, will he face impeachment over Benghazi — a yet more unpleasant and far more wrenching result than to lose an election? It could happen — and in my estimation should happen — the way revelations are playing out over the bloody terror attack that took four American lives and has led to weeks of prevarication and obfuscation. The scandal thus far has at least tarnished and quite possibly implicated everyone from the CIA director, to the secretaries of State and Defense, to the...

    <p>WASHINGTON -- US officials have found evidence corroborating White House allegations that Russian companies sold Saddam Hussein high-tech military equipment that threatened US forces during the invasion of Iraq last March, a senior State Department official said yesterday.</p> <p>The official said the United States has found proof that Russian companies exported night-vision goggles and radar-jamming equipment to Iraq, the official said. The evidence includes the equipment itself and proof that it was used during the war, according to the official. Such exports would violate the terms of United Nations sanctions against Iraq.</p>

    THE WALL STREET JOURNAL: BELARUS SELLS ARMS TO TERRORISTS 11:19, 29/04/2002 In his recent article for the popular “The Wall Street Journal” Mark Lenzi wrote that terrorists get weapons from the very center of Europe – Belarus. This country, he writes, was called by the US Secretary of State Colin Powell Europe’s only rogue state. During the forthcoming talks between Putin and Bush this issue had to be included into the meeting’s agenda. It is namely through the solution of the Belarusian issue that Kremlin may help Washington combat international terrorism. George Bush’s Administration needs to work out a strategy...

The official said Washington had evidence that personnel from a Russian firm were in Iraq attempting to help set up and operate a system that interferes with US global positioning technology. "The system is complex and there is evidence that they (Russian technicians) have been trying to bring this system on-line and help the Iraqis operate it," the official told...

    MUNICH: Police in the western German cities of Mannheim and Cologne have opened inquiries into a German-Russian businessman suspected of masterminding the illegal supply of weapons to Iraq, weekly news magazine Focus says in its edition due out on Monday. The businessman, named as Mark V., specialises in selling weapons from former Soviet bloc countries to the Middle East and German investigators suspect him of illegally channelling weapons to Iraq via Jordan, it said. The United Nations slapped an embargo on sales of weapons to Iraq after Baghdad invaded neighbouring Kuwait in 1990. Mark V., who owns a dental equipment...
