    Former CIA Director James Woolsey believes UFOs could exist after a plane belonging to a friend of his was "paused at 40,000 feet," which he said he could not explain, he revealed during a recent interview. "There have been over the years now events of one kind of another, usually involving some kind of aircraft-like airframe," Woolsey told the YouTube channel for the Black Vault, an online archive of declassified government documents. "I never thought there was anything to all this; it always seemed pretty far out to me," he continued. "But there was one case in which a friend...

    Commentary ^ | June 2020 | Eli Lake
    In their final encounter during the transition following the 2016 election, Donald Trump’s incoming national-security adviser surprised Barack Obama’s outgoing national-security adviser. Susan Rice writes in her memoir that the Michael Flynn she was dealing with had nothing in common with the firebrand she had watched leading a “lock her up” chant against Hillary Clinton at the Republican National Convention a few months earlier. Flynn, a retired general and the former head of the Defense Intelligence Agency, was respectful and subdued, eager for her advice. When Rice extended her hand and wished him the best of luck, Flynn asked her...

    Watching Jack Bryan’s explosive documentary “Active Measures,” about Russia’s espionage program and the effect it had on the 2016 U.S. presidential election, could be likened to watching a 21st century version of Watergate. [snip] a bevy of interviews with key Washington figures including former CIA director James Woolsey, former United States Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul, former F.B.I. special agent Clint Watts, Hillary Clinton and John McCain. Via these interviews “Active Measures” constructs a powerful argument as to how Soviet modern warfare tactics – “active measures” — shifted the 2016 U.S. presidential elections and weakened Western democracy. The film also...

    Former CIA Director James Woolsey has left the Trump transition team, a spokesman confirmed in a statement Thursday evening. “Effective immediately, Ambassador Woolsey is no longer a Senior Advisor to President-Elect Trump or the Transition. He wishes the President-Elect and his Administration great success in their time in office," spokesman Jonathan Franks said in an email.

Aides to Trump did not immediately return a request for comment.

    "Former CIA Director James Woolsey: Yet again the president did not pass up an opportunity to say that guns are the problem. And yet again he passed up the opportunity even to allude to the fact that there might be some motivation from some branch of Islam, or jihadist terrorism or jihadi thinking behind what was taking place despite of the fact that the killer was shouting ‘Allahu Akbar.’ The facts don’t seem to matter to this administration."

Two years after Insight filed an appeal charging that the CIA withheld documents and imagery concerning the Mount Ararat anomaly in Turkey, the CIA has released two new documents to Insight that indicate the search for "Noah's Ark" reached the level of the White House under former president George H.W. Bush. The appeal, filed one month after Insight's exclusive story (see "Anomaly or Noah's Ark?"; Nov. 20, 2000), comes on the heels of the CIA's releasing...

    Iran is using the same tactics as Adolf Hitler’s Nazi Germany to expand their empire, former Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) Director James Woolsey stated Monday—by reviving imperialism through ideology. “They are doing it on a highly ideological basis,” Woolsey said in an interview on CNBC’s Squawk Box. “They are an imperial power and trying to become more of an imperial power.” As such, he added, “given Iran’s aggressiveness and the fanaticism of its leaders, I don’t think we can do a reasonable deal with them. They’ll cheat.” Despite the evidence, Woolsey theorized that US President Barack Obama will continue the...

We must deal with the Islamic State, but it is not the gravest threat we face. The Israelis are right — we should awaken to the fact that the coming of a nuclear Iran holds special dangers and requires particularly urgent attention. There are four driving reasons.</p>

    A heavyweight lineup of former national security officials banded together late Tuesday to accuse Americans for Tax Reform (ATR) president Grover Norquist and high-ranking GOP political operative Suhail Khan of connections to the Muslim Brotherhood. The officials authored a 45-page dossier on the issue to Cleta Mitchell, the top lawyer for the American Conservatives’ Union who in 2011 cleared Norquist of the allegations initially brought by former high-ranking Reagan official Frank Gaffney. The signatories include numerous powerful and respected former officials, including former Attorney General Michael Mukasey, former CIA Director James Woolsey, former Florida Rep. Allen West, retired Army Lt....

There have been many senior US officials who have called for Israeli Jonathan Pollard to be released, but none ever came from this highest of security institutions.

Speaking to the Israel News Agency, Woolsey stated: "It's enough. After a quarter century the time has come to free Pollard. That doesn't...

    http://bookstore.iuniverse.com/Products/SKU-000028771/Barney-Frank-and-the-Law-of-Unintended-Consequences.aspx The short answer is yes,Quazi Mohammad Rezwanul Ahsan Nafis,, the Jihadist terrorist who plotted to bomb the Federal Reserve Bank in Manhattan, was able to get a Visa more easily from the State Department because of the Frank Amendment. Congressman Barney Frank sponsored over 10 such amendments in the 1990's, bills that he sheparded into law which made it easier for terrorists to enter into the United States with legal visas. Bill Clinton's CIA Director James Woolsey, speaking on the Frank Amendment to the Wall Street Journal stated that "Congress had made it illegal to deny visas to members...

    The administration refuses to utilize a strong opponent of radical Islam. Shortly after 9/11, many thought it was imperative to teach about and promote the heroes of that deadly day. One such hero whose life and example we can never learn enough about was Rick Rescorla. Originally from England, he came to America and distinguished himself as an Army infantry officer in Vietnam. Later he became head of security at Morgan Stanley, and, after the World Trade Center bombing in 1993, he knew the terrorists would go after the Twin Towers again. He warned the authorities continually; moreover, he led...

    Foreign Policy ^ | JUNE 7, 2011 | JAMES WOOLSEY, REBECCAH HEINRICHS
    President Barack Obama's administration recently threatened to veto the defense budget, citing "serious concerns" over provisions that limit the U.S. missile defense know-how that the White House is permitted to share with Moscow. This is the sort of information that Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, in his earlier days, would have assigned his spies to steal. Through its single-minded pursuit of "resetting" relations with Russia, the Obama administration may simply be willing to hand over this information and, in doing so, weaken U.S. national security. Only two days after issuing the veto threat -- and as Obama tried to warm...

    As is the case in all national catastrophes, we can thank liberals for the Christmas Day terrorist attack by Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab. Hundreds of casualties were prevented, not by any action on the part of our government, but rather a courageous Dutchman, Jasper Schuringa, who followed in the lion hearted footsteps of Flight 93’s passengers, this time with a better ending. Former CIA director, R. James Woolsey spoke to Robert Costa of NRO: “What troubles Woolsey is that Abdul Mutallab’s name was left off the lists for political reasons. ‘Limiting the ‘no fly’ and ‘recheck’ lists has been a...

    Former CIA Director R. James Woolsey tells NewsMax in an exclusive interview that terrorists could strike the American homeland — possibly with a weapon of mass destruction — this summer or early fall. He also warns that if Iran fails to comply with international efforts to stop its nuclear weapons program, the U.S. will have no other option than to bomb it. "I think the threat of a serious attack in the next few months is very real," Woolsey said. A terrorist strike with a dirty bomb or with biological weapons was "a real possibility." Woolsey's comments echo those of...

Traiman asked about Woolsey's choice of terminology in calling the present conflict between the West and Islam as World War Four. Woolsey explained that shortly after 9/11, "I saw an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal by Eliot Cohen of Johns Hopkins University where he wrote that the Cold War was World War III, and that the war against what I call Islamist totalitarianism is World War IV...
