    Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani said Wednesday the Iranian people are waiting for an apology from U.S. President Donald Trump for his “extremely offensive” rhetoric and “unfounded” allegations about his country. Rouhani told a news conference that the Trump administration is seeking “an excuse” to pull out of the nuclear agreement that caps Iran’s nuclear activities which is supported by his government and the five other parties — Russia, China, Britain, France and Germany. If the U.S. decides to break the agreement, Rouhani said, “any choice and any option” are open for Iran “that we see as beneficial to our country”...

    BEIRUT - The head of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards said on Wednesday that the United States should experience “painful responses” following President Donald Trump’s harsh criticism of Tehran at the United Nations. “Taking a definitive stand against Trump is only the beginning of the path,” said General Mohammad Ali Jafari, according to Sepah News, the news site of the Revolutionary Guards. “What is strategically important is that America witnesses more painful responses in the actions, behavior and decisions that Iran takes in the coming months.” “With the successive and exhausting defeats that the Americans have faced in the region from Iran,...

    WASHINGTON -- The top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee charged that President Trump's United Nations speech ripping the "embarrassment" Iran deal could have killed any chance for a peaceful solution with North Korea over its nuclear weapons program. "The United States has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea. Rocket Man is on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime," Trump declared in his first address to the world body in New York. Trump, who said Monday...

    Washington, D.C. - Michael Maloof was back in the game. He and another Pentagon aide, David Wurmser, drove the short distance from the Pentagon to CIA headquarters in Langley, Va. It was early October, a good season in Washington, but Maloof’s nerves were on edge during the scenic ride along the tree-lined George Washington Parkway. snip Maloof was a legend within the Pentagon circle that tracked arms proliferation. His office was obscure, but it performed a crucial national security function. snip The Pentagon wanted years of intelligence reporting on al Qaeda, Iraq, Iran and other potential targets in the war...

    Germany would lend its weight to a diplomatic push to end North Korean nuclear weapons and missile development along the lines of a past deal with Iran, Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Sunday. “I would say yes immediately if we were asked to join talks,” Merkel told weekly newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung.Talks between Iran and six world powers, sealed with a 2015 deal for Tehran to roll back its nuclear program and submit to inspections in exchange for some sanctions being rolled back, were “a long but important period of diplomacy” that had achieved a “good end,” she added.

    Britain’s Telegraph newspaper is reporting that U.K. officials fear that Iran or Russia may have helped North Korea’s “sudden advancement” in the development of nuclear weapons. The paper on September 10 said the British Foreign Office is investigating whether “current and former nuclear states” helped Pyongyang develop nuclear weapons capable of being mounted on missiles. “Iran is top of the list of countries suspected of giving some form of assistance, while Russia is also in the spotlight,” the paper reported. Unidentified senior officials told the newspaper it was “not credible” that North Korea's scientists alone could have accomplished the nuclear...

    Reporters Without Borders (RSF) condemns attempts by the Iranian judicial system and intelligence services to influence the Persian-language sections of international media outlets by putting pressure on Iranian journalists based abroad and on their families still in Iran. How do the Iranian intelligence services pressure Iranian journalists who are working abroad? BBC World Service director Francesca Unsworth shed some light on this when she reported on 15 August that the assets of more than 150 BBC Persian staff, former staff and contributors have been frozen in Iran, preventing them from conducting financial transactions there.

    In a speech at the American Enterprise Institute think tank in Washington, D.C., Haley detailed a strong case for Trump to declare Iran in violation of the agreement, warning the United States will be "dealing with the next North Korea" if the regime is left unchecked. "We're allowing them to have behavior that's in violation of the resolution right in front of us," she said. "We're allowing them to sit there and actually tell the [International Atomic Energy Agency] that they're not going to let them inspect military sites where we know they have had covert nuclear operations in the...

    U.S. officials are closely monitoring an ongoing meeting between senior North Korean and Iranian officials that comes on the heels of a nuclear test by Pyongyang, according to senior Trump administration officials and other sources who expressed concern that North Korea is helping to put the Islamic Republic back on the pathway to a functional nuclear weapon. Sources told the Washington Free Beacon that Pyongyang continues to stockpile illicit nuclear material on Iran's behalf in order to help the Islamic Republic skirt restrictions implemented under the landmark nuclear deal. North Korea's latest nuclear test of a hydrogen bomb has roiled...

    Former United States Ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton discussed his National Review op-ed on how to get the U.S. out of the Iran nuclear agreement with Breitbart News Daily SiriusXM host Alex Marlow on Thursday. Below is an excerpt from Bolton’s NRO piece: Although candidate Donald Trump repeatedly criticized Barack Obama’s Iran nuclear agreement, his administration has twice decided to remain in the deal. It so certified to Congress, most recently in July, as required by law. Before the second certification, Trump asked repeatedly for alternatives to acquiescing yet again in a policy he clearly abhorred. But no...

    A Santa Cruz restaurant is shut down for what the owner is calling “political terrorism.” Some employees and patrons boycotted the Chinese restaurant, after public records obtained by Indybay revealed restaurant owner Roger Grigsby gave $500 to David Duke’s campaign last year. Duke ran for a US Senate seat in Louisiana and lost. He is an avowed white nationalist, anti-Semite and former Imperial Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan. Now, after 38 years in business, Grigsby’s restaurant, O’Mei on Mission Street is closed. There is a sign in the window telling patrons, “O’Mei has come under attack. Slanderous and malicious...

    Several social media companies in the West have been criticised for a perceived lack of transparency in alleged talks with the Iranian authorities on censoring content to the approval of the country’s strict religious authorities. Instagram, currently available in the country – as well as Twitter and YouTube, which are blocked but widely visited by Iranians using proxy servers – have all been reported by local media in recent weeks as as co-operating with the authorities to aid them in blocking or censoring “immoral” content.

    TrevorLoudon: National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster: A legend or a lie?(language warning)Fresh on the heels of a successful offensive in Mosul, Iraq, the Iraqi military is now poised to Operation Restoring Rights. His reputation as a brilliant military strategist rests largely on the results of that one battle. Given the widespread support for McMaster in the media and Washington establishment, it is ironic that current reporting largely fails to mention this battle or McMaster’s central role in it. McMaster’s widely-hyped strategic acumen has been called into question by high-level military sources with personal knowledge of his conduct in the...
