The CIA Has Joined Facebook and Twitter
Wall Street Journal, by Siobhan Gorman & Natalie Andrews

Original Article

Posted By:EagleEye, 6/6/2014 6:36:58 PM

The Central Intelligence Agency showed its hipper side Friday, launching its Twitter presence with a cheeky first tweet: “We can neither confirm nor deny that this is our first tweet.” The CIA was slow to join Twitter. Other agencies like the geeky codebreakers at the National Security Agency and even the staid Director of National Intelligence had already joined Twitter. NSA had a creative tweet go viral last month, when @NSACareers tweeted a series of letters – with a challenge to break the code. @NSACareers is a veteran tweeter, having launched the first U.S. spy agency Twitter account in 2009.

Obama sells Hellfire:
White House hopes to send
4K missiles to Iraq for ISIL fight
Washington Times, by Douglas Ernst    Original Article
Posted By: EagleEye- 7/2/2014 1:35:54 PM     Post Reply
The Obama administration is hoping that 4,000 Hellfire missiles might turn the tide in Iraq as the Middle Eastern nation takes on the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL). Officials were told by the State Department last week that the Obama administration is trying to complete the sale with Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki’s Shiite-led government. Members of the Senate and House foreign relations committees will conduct a review of the planned sale. The process can take up to 40 days, Bloomberg News reported Wednesday. “As a matter of policy, we decline to comment on cases that have not been formally notified to Congress,”

A month after Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America targeted Target for letting North Texas open-carriers stroll through the toy section with Oreos and AKs, the Big Box has finally released a statement asking shoppers to leave their long guns at home. This morning interim CEO John Mulligan wrote on the company’s blog that the company’s leadership has been wrestling with the “complex issue” for several weeks. And in the end, he writes, the team decided to join Chipotle, Chili’s, Starbucks and other companies by asking folks to shop without displaying their weapons. Says the statement: As you’ve likely seen in the media,

Boston - He insists he’s not running for president a third time, but Mitt Romney is campaigning again in New Hampshire. The former Republican presidential nominee is set to endorse Senate candidate Scott Brown on Wednesday, campaigning publicly in New Hampshire for the first time since the early hours of Election Day 2012 as he continues a larger effort to re-emerge as a force in Republican politics. The day is supposed to be focused on Brown’s quest to defeat Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen this fall. But Romney’s return to the state where he began and ended his last presidential campaign looms over the Senate

Obama seeks change to law
that protects immigrant kids

As part of an effort to stem the flood of children caught trying to cross the nation´s southwest border, President Obama is trying to change a 2008 law that dictates how the federal government handles those immigrant children in order to speed up their deportations. (Snip) The 2008 law, which passed both chambers of Congress by unanimous consent and was signed into law by President George W. Bush, dictates exactly how children caught crossing the border without their parents must be treated. For children coming from "contiguous countries" – in other words, Mexico and Canada – a Border Patrol officer has the authority

Former French president Sarkozy

Former French President Nicolas Sarkozy has reportedly been charged with corruption and influence peddling after being held for questioning for 15 hours. Mr. Sarkozy was held at Nanterre, just outside of Paris, where he was questioned on allegations that he violated campaign finance laws and abused his power to manipulate the legal system. Authorities officially charged him, his lawyer and a senior magistrate early Wednesday morning, according to several news outlets. Prosecutors accused Mr. Sarkozy of appointing a magistrate in Monaco, Gilbert Azibert, to a senior judicial position in exchange for under-the-table information regarding campaign finance probes against him.

Israel’s present and future security
challenges in the field of counter-terrorism
Jerusalem Post [Israel], by Bonnie Riva-Ras    Original Article
Posted By: EagleEye- 6/28/2014 5:17:28 PM     Post Reply
Israel has been forced to cope with waves of terrorism of various types and intensities since its founding and to this day. These waves of terrorism are carried out by various terrorist organizations (Palestinian and Shi’ite) in various arenas (internal, along the borders, overseas) and using various methods (suicide attacks, explosive devices, kidnappings and negotiations, shootings and more). In the decade since the end of the second Intifada, and since the death of Yasser Arafat and his replacement by Abu Mazen, there has been a significant lull in the number of terrorist attacks on Israeli soil, the wave of suicide attacks has subsided

ISIS: Beyond the regional instability

Since the fall of Mosul to the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) organization, the media has been disseminating an apocalyptic portrayal of the situation. According to the reports, the organization will soon be conquering Baghdad and indeed all of Iraq. Likewise, there are assessments that also in Jordan, Kuwait and other Gulf nations,there is fear of suffering a similar fate from the powerful organization. Without underestimating the threat potential of the organization in light of its local achievements and murderous activities, it is worth understanding the wider context in which it has attained its achievements and strength.

Authorities say emergency room patients at two hospitals in Rhode Island may have been exposed to a patient with measles. According to the Associated Press, people may have been exposed to the infectious disease at Rhode Island Hospital and Roger Williams Medical Center, both located in Providence, after a patient exhibiting “fever, nausea and aches” visited the hospitals’ emergency rooms last Sunday. The first potential exposure occurred between 3 and 6 a.m. at Rhode Island Hospital, the AP reports. The second potential exposure occurred between 6:30 p.m. and 10 p.m. at Roger Williams Medical Center, when the patient turned up

Life imitates art: ‘Hunger Games’ salute
becomes criminal offense in Thailand

Life is imitating art in Thailand — unfortunately for protesters, it’s the illegal three-fingered salute from the “Hunger Games” books and film series. After Thailand’s military council took power in a coup on May 22, it began cracking down on dissent in unique ways. It became illegal to read George Orwell’s “1984” in public or to wear shirts that say “Peace Please.” Now, the salute from “The Hunger Games” is off-limits, Business Insider reported Friday. Plainclothes cops are reportedly patrolling Bangkok for individuals who break such laws and then arrest them. “In many cases, their heads are covered with black plastic bags so they won’t

Brownsville, TX - House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said Saturday during a visit to the U.S.-Mexico border that she holds little hope that Congress will pass comprehensive immigration reform this year. (Snip) ‘‘A few days ago I would have been more optimistic about comprehensive immigration reform,’’ Pelosi said. ‘‘I thought that we had been finding a way because we have been very patient and respectful of (Speaker of the House John Boehner) trying to do it one way or another. I don’t think he gives us much reason to be hopeful now, but we never give up. There’s still the month of July.’’

Nairobi - The United Nations is determined to help Kenya and other countries in Africa fight "terrorism" following a series of deadly attacks, Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said Saturday. Speaking in the capital Nairobi, he said he had talked with Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta "at length" about how the UN and Kenyan government can work together in countering "heinous" attacks. (Snip) Kenya has been the scene of a series of attacks attributed to the Somali Al-Qaeda-linked group Shebab and their supporters since Kenya sent troops over the border to help fight the group in 2011. The Shebab claimed responsibility for the assault

As Tea Party challengers grappled with the stunning news that Sen. Thad Cochran had beaten the odds to win his primary against Chris McDaniel, Tennessee candidate for Senate Joe Carr vowed that the fight would continue. “Make no mistake about it: the fight that Chris McDaniel started in Mississippi will continue here in Tennessee,” Carr announced in a statement to supporters late Tuesday night. Carr specifically criticized the Cochran campaign for working to drive out Democrat supporters to win the runoff election. According to the Associated Press, Cochran earned 50.8 percent of the vote, while McDaniel peaked with 49.2 percent.

A government-contracted security force threatened to arrest doctors and nurses if they divulged any information about the contagion threat at a refugee camp housing illegal alien children at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas, sources say. In spite of the threat, several former camp workers broke their confidentiality agreements and shared exclusive details with me about the dangerous conditions at the camp. They said taxpayers deserve to know about the contagious diseases and the risks the children pose to Americans. I have agreed to not to disclose their identities because they fear retaliation and prosecution.

A crowd of 300 angry protestors forced three buses carrying 140 undocumented migrant children and their parents to turn around in Murrieta, California, on Tuesday after they blocked the road. The dramatic confrontation between the flag waving protestors and the Homeland Security buses came one day after Mayor Alan Long urged residents to resist the federal government´s plan to transfer the Central American migrants to California to ease overcrowding of facilities along the Texas-Mexico border. Holding up banners that said ´Return to Sender´ and suggesting the children should be sent to the White House instead, the irate protestors succeeded when the buses

In a statement posted Wednesday on the retailer´s corporate blog, interim CEO John Mulligan said that Target wants a "safe and inviting" atmosphere for its shoppers and employees. "Bringing firearms to Target creates an environment that is at odds with the family-friendly shopping and work experience we strive to create," he said. (Snip) A group called Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America gathered nearly 400,000 signatures for a petition asking Target to prohibit shoppers from carrying guns

WASHINGTON – Republicans see the November midterm elections as an opportunity to take the nation on a different path and call for a new conservative message focusing on the problems of regular Americans. During the latest convention of conservative activist Ralph Reed’s Faith and Freedom Coalition in Washington, D.C., Republicans confidently proclaimed that the GOP has an opportunity to turn back the past six years of President Obama’s administration in the midterm elections. “There’s only one thing to be done in 2014…and that is to take back America by taking back the Senate,” Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said

Valerie Jarrett, a senior adviser to President Barack Obama, has a unique item of herself in her office: a photo of herself with three figurines bowing down in worship in front of it. The photo drew attention after Jarrett´s "Meet the Press" interview Sunday — and Jarrett posted a tweet Tuesday afternoon assuring her supporters the display was simply a novelty item. "Don´t worry friends, it was a gag gift," Jarrett wrote, pivoting to some White House messaging about the economy. "Us strong women don´t need worship," she continued, "just an economy for the 21st century. #WomenSucceed." Business Insider directly

In Monica Lewinsky’s first television interview in ten years, the former White House intern will open up about going from “a virgin to humiliation” to “the most humiliated woman in the world.” In clips of her interview with National Geographic obtained by the TODAY show, the former White House intern recalls her experiences after the public release of the Starr report. “That was one of the worst days of my life,” Lewinsky said. “I was a virgin to humiliation of that level, until that day.”

St. Claire Shores, MI -The feminists hadn’t shown up yet, but they could, at any moment, with their protest signs and screaming. The threat of them was an infuriating and exhilarating specter throughout the weekend, a symbol of the oppression facing the men’s rights activists who had gathered to meet for their inaugural conference. Early Friday before the opening session, a wispy trail of men — mostly white, college-through-retirement-age — waited for the doors to open outside of this Veterans of Foreign Wars outpost in suburban Detroit. One man talked about his ex-wife. A lot of guys talked about their ex-wives.

The Obama administration is not too concerned about possible Republican responses to its unilateral administrative actions on immigration. “What that they might sue?” White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said laughing when asked Tuesday about possible Republican retaliation for the executive action. “They announced they were doing that last week,” he continued. “So, the prospect that Republicans might do even more to try to obstruct the president’s agenda I think is a little far-fetched. It seems to me they have tried every single thing they can think of already to block progress for this country so the fact that they

Higher education is no longer just for kids in the top quarter or the top half of the class. College is for everyone," First lady Michelle Obama told a gathering of school counselors in Florida on Tuesday. "Every student in this country needs some higher education, whether that´s two-year degree, a four-year degree, or professional training of some sort." Mrs. Obama went to the annual meeting of the American School Counselor Association in Florida to thank counselors for taking on a demanding job without the resources necessary to meet the challenges. They, in turn, made her an honorary school counselor.

Reverend Steve Fielder, a pastor at the First Union Missionary Baptist Church in Meridian, Mississippi, has accused Mississippi Senator Thad Cochran’s campaign of engaging in an illegal and criminal campaign scheme to purchase the votes of black community members. The suspect votes were cast during Cochran’s successful effort to defeat Tea Party challenger Chris McDaniel in the Mississippi Republican primary run-off held last week. If true, such an action would be clearly illegal under both federal law and Mississippi statutes, specifically MS Code 97-13-1; MS Code 97-13-3 (2013) (Federal Code 18 U.S.C. 597, U.S.C. 1973i(c)), each punishable by a prison

Mississippi sore loser Chris McDaniel and his supporters wouldn´t like me too much. For many years in the state where I was born, I voted in primaries for people I didn´t like, didn´t agree with and had no intention of voting for later -- secure in the thought I was doing my best in a bad situation I had no part in bringing about. Yes, years before Operation Chaos occurred to Rush Limbaugh, I had been voting strategically in New York. Here´s how it all came about. Back in the Stone Age when I began voting, I was a genuine

The woman who police say viciously attacked a New Jersey mother in front of her two-year-old son has turned herself into authorities. Latia Harris, 25, surrendered to police on Monday night in relation to last week´s brutal that was captured on video. Authorities say they were ´close to capturing´ the fugitive over the weekend in Philadelphia. Harris faces two counts of aggravated assault and two counts of making terroristic threats.
