    Pakistan's leaders knew about Osama bin Laden's presence in the country before he was killed by US Navy SEALs four years ago, their former defence minister has said. Chaudhry Ahmad Mukhtar told CNN-IBN that Pakistan's top military and civilian leaders were aware bin Laden was living in Abbottabad. This included then-President Asif Ali Zardari, army chief Ashfaq Parvez Kayani, the joint chiefs of staff and people in the intelligence agency. "The people who were part and parcel of the whole action like the President of Pakistan, the Armed Forces Chief, the Joint Chief of Staff and the agency people, they...

    President Donald Trump’s decision to part ways with Steve Bannon can be understood as an effort to save his presidency after Charlottesville. It may turn out to be the beginning of the end for the Trump administration, the moment Donald Trump became Arnold Schwarzenegger. ... Bannon was not just Trump’s master strategist, the man who turned a failing campaign around in August 2016 and led one of the most remarkable come-from-behind victories in political history. He was also the conservative spine of the administration. His infamous whiteboard in the West Wing listed the promises Trump had made to the voters,...

  • Ayatollah Khamenei Demands America ‘Tackle White Supremacy’ After Charlottesville

    Breitbart ^ | 17 August 2017 | John Hayward
    Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei used his English-language Twitter account on Wednesday to declare, “If the U.S. has any power, they better manage their country, tackle white supremacy rather than meddle in nations’ affairs.” Khamenei linked this comment to the Twitter hashtags for #WhiteSupremacy and #Charlottesville. He included a photo of indeterminate origin showing a younger version of himself holding a black child, which is presumably supposed to demonstrate his superior racial sensitivity. To its credit, the Washington Post was sharply skeptical of the tweet, noting that Khamenei routinely seeks to exploit American crimes and tragedies for political advantage....

    As President Rouhani addresses Parliament, he made it very clear that id the US decides to go ahead with more sanctions, then Iran will scrap the “Obama Deal” (which did not just involve Obama) and resume their nuclear and missile projects. The only surprising thing about this whole affair is that it took them this long. Rouhani was outlining the plans for his new term when his “chat” took a decidedly anti-Trump turn; he declared that with Trump n the White House shows the world that Washington is “not a good partner”. Let’s for a moment ignore that most nations...

    Iran could abandon its nuclear agreement with world powers “within hours” if the United States imposes any more new sanctions, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said on Tuesday. “If America wants to go back to the experience (of imposing sanctions), Iran would certainly return in a short time — not a week or a month, but within hours — to conditions more advanced than before the start of negotiations,” Rouhani told a session of parliament broadcast live on state television. Iran says new U.S. sanctions breach the agreement it reached in 2015 with the United States, Russia, China and three European...

    Amir discusses the situation in the Middle East, North Korea, and some interesting finds in Israel. He explains why he is not caught up in the current hysteria about eclipses and Virgo signs and the rest. He believes in signs, but balances that against the Gospel, which is full of messages that are more important, and are the true things that Jesus wanted us to know. Signs are for the unbeliever, so that maybe they will believe. We who believe should be more focused on the Gospel. A very important message that he has given before and emphasizes now that...

    What does the well-dressed woman wear to a gay-hanging in Tehran? The following video from Denmark provides some pointers for hip fashionistas in the oh-so-frumpy West on how to look “hot” in their hijabs. Actually, this is shameless propaganda for sharia and the veiling of women. It’s hard to believe that Danish TV could dispense this sort of sewage to its viewers. What’s happened to the Danes? Many thanks to Tania Groth for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:

    Pakistan has built a 'hardened, secure, underground' complex in a remote mountainous region in the restive Balochistan province that could serve as a storage site for nuclear warheads, an American think tank said on Wednesday. The Institute for Science and International Security, a nonprofit and non-governmental institution, said its observation is based on satellite imagery and investigation. It said in a report that the underground complex in the southwestern province 'could serve as a ballistic missile and nuclear warhead storage site'. The purpose of the complex is not yet available publicly. But, the report authored by David Albright, Sarah Burkhard,...

Blackwater later changed its name and is now known as Xe. General Beg recently told the Saudi Arabian daily Al Watan that former Pakistani president Pervez Musharraf had given Blackwater the green light to carry out terrorist operations in the cities of Islamabad, Rawalpindi,...

    he United Arab Emirates arranged a secret meeting in January between Blackwater founder Erik Prince and a Russian close to President Vladi­mir Putin as part of an apparent effort to establish a back-channel line of communication between Moscow and President-elect Donald Trump, according to U.S., European and Arab officials. The meeting took place around Jan. 11 — nine days before Trump’s inauguration — in the Seychelles islands in the Indian Ocean, officials said. Though the full agenda remains unclear, the UAE agreed to broker the meeting in part to explore whether Russia could be persuaded to curtail its relationship with...

    Prosecutors in the southwest German city of Saarbrücken are investigating an Iran-born AfD politician over accusations that she made Islamophobic statements. A prosecutor’s office spokeswoman said on Wednesday that AfD politician Laleh Hadjimohamadvali — a candidate in the upcoming national elections — is suspected of defamation of religious groups, as well as incitement to hatred. Hadjimohamadvali was born in Iran and has said that she fled to Germany to get away from Islam in the 1980s after the 1979 Iranian Revolution led to the establishment of an Islamic Republic. According to the Saarbrücker Zeitung, Hadjimohamadvali said during a party gathering...

    Germany on Wednesday urged North Korea and the United States to show “restraint” after apocalyptic threats from President Donald Trump and Pyongyang in their mounting war of words. “We are watching the increasing rhetorical escalation regarding the Korean Peninsula with the greatest concern,” foreign ministry spokesman Martin Schäfer told reporters. “That is why we call on all sides to use restraint.” Schäfer said Berlin was convinced a “military option” could not be “the answer in the quest for a nuclear weapon-free” region. He urged the international community to “thoroughly implement” the latest round of sanctions against North Korea approved by...

    Deception by Kenneth Timmerman contains several blockbuster claims that match Wag the Dog deception in their audacity -- claims backed with evidence ranging from extremely solid to highly plausible. In the former category is the assertion that neither the Cairo riots on September 11, 2012, nor the Benghazi attacks that began later that night were inspired by the infamous YouTube video produced by Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, the shady Coptic Egyptian living in Southern California.

    An Iranian drone nearly collided with a U.S. Navy F-18 Super Hornet while the American jet was in a holding pattern, a U.S. defense official told Fox News on Tuesday. The jet was about to land aboard the aircraft carrier USS Nimitz, which recently arrived in the Persian Gulf, according to the report. The incident marked the first time an Iranian drone has “interrupted a flight pattern,” the official told Fox News. The F-18 “maneuvered to avoid collision,” said the official, who described the unarmed Iranian drone as a Qom-1, and added that the encounter was “unsafe and unprofessional…and dangerous.”...
