news of the day, yesterday and beyond...

joke of the day

The Washington Post has a story today that has made all the MMMM (mediocre mass media de mierda otherwise known as the Western press) about The Donald telling state's secrets to the Ruskies...

The president’s disclosures to the Russian foreign minister and ambassador in their Oval Office meeting last week jeopardized a critical source of intelligence on the Islamic State — an information-sharing arrangement considered so sensitive that details have been withheld from allies and tightly restricted even within the U.S. government, current and former U.S. officials said. Trump appeared to be boasting of the “great intel” he receives when he described a looming terror threat, according to an official with knowledge of the exchange. As president, Trump has broad authority to declassify government secrets, making it unlikely that his disclosure broke the law.

The Washington Post, like all the other MMMM of Yamerika, has been miffed by not having "journalistic" access to the meeting, except apparently a Yankee photographer was on equal par with a Russian photographer, but the Russian's photos made the press and the internet before the other guy could say boo. These days, one only need to have one small camera to record a conversation at 20 feet. But where did the WP get its "sensitive" information? My guess is from a transcript of lip reading expert at Wikileaks rather than the 1.42 minute recording posted on the YP. 

blackening assad's regime...

Today in the MMMM around the world, the news is that Assad is using a crematorium to get rid of the bodies of prisoners... There is a tinge of false news about this item which sprouts everywhere, like simultaneous apparition... But it could be "exactly correct" as the tautologists would say.

Meanwhile in Syria, in the footstep of the US killing children in Iraq by sanction on medicines, sanctions have been hurting far more than the war, apparently.:

A pharmaceutical plant in the suburbs of Aleppo has started its production after Sheikh Najar district was liberated from militants. The workers at the plant are seen packing tablets, along the conveyor belt medicines in bottles are seen being transported. Although production has started once again after years of being shut down, the plant is not enough to help everyone.

 

Despite the popular belief of war affecting the production in the country, it was not the terrorists that caused the greatest harm to this industry, it was the western sanctions.

“The sanctions of the Western countries almost killed the entire pharmaceutical industry in the country, as we cannot buy medications or ingredients for their production. Now imports only come from Russia, China, Iran and some other countries,” production director Mahmoud Abu Abed told Sputnik.

Sanctions against Syria first of all hit the ordinary people and soldiers fighting against terrorist organizations such as Daesh and al-Nusra Front.

Civilians cannot buy medications to fight cancer, diabetes and other diseases. There are not enough vaccines against poliomyelitis, anti-inflammatory and other vital pills.

“There is no insulin, you know what happens when there is no insulin: an increase in diabetes mellitus, that's what, happens to people,” pharmacist Mahmoud Makteri told Sputnik. He, like many Syrian doctors, had studied in Russia before returning to serve his country.

Before the war, Syrian pharmaceutical plants supplied 95% of the country’s medicines. Now production has fallen to less than half. Many production facilities have been destroyed or captured by militants.

dying in darkness...

On Monday, the Washington Post reported on a "leak" that US President Donald Trump revealed classified intelligence to a major foreign power: a story that is "false," National Security Adviser HR McMaster said Monday night.

This is hardly the first time the paper, which claims "Democracy Dies in Darkness," has shined a light on something that never happened.

"The story that came out tonight is false," McMaster said.

The report in question alleged that US President Donald Trump shared classified intelligence to Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak and Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.

"I was in the room, it didn't happen," the National Security Adviser said.

"At no time" were intelligence methods or assets discussed during the meeting, McMaster added. Nothing Trump said constituted information that was not previously publicly known, according to the general.

The Post previously reported that Russian hackers breached the electric grid in Vermont. That story also turned out to be false, and Post reporters skipped a basic practice in journalism to verify with utility officials that a breach had occurred. 

What's more, WaPo has led the "fake news" brigade, publishing the names of sites in an attempt to blacklist them from public trust. These included Sputnik News, TruthOut, Zero Hedge, the Drudge Report and WikiLeaks. The Post ran a correction later on stating that "The Post… does not itself vouch for the validity of PropOrNot's findings regarding any individual media outlet." 

On multiple occasions, the Post has resorted to apologizing to limit the embarrassment of their explosive and incorrect reporting. Nevertheless, even though they incorrectly predicted that Trump was doomed in the general election, their antagonistic, negative approach to the president has never ceased.

fake news of the day...

 

Russia says reports United States President Donald Trump revealed highly classified information to its Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov during their meeting last week are "fake".

Key points:
  • Russia's foreign ministry reportedly says Donald Trump did not reveal information
  • White House declares allegations are incorrect
  • House Speaker Paul Ryan demands a full explanation of what happened

A Washington Post story alleged Mr Trump jeopardised a key intelligence source on the Islamic State terrorist group by disclosing it during a meeting with Mr Lavrov and Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak at the White House.

Russia's foreign ministry said reports Mr Trump had revealed highly classified information were "fake", according to the Interfax news agency.

The White House had earlier declared the allegations incorrect.

"The story that came out tonight as reported is false," Mr Trump's national security adviser HR McMaster told reporters, adding that the leaders reviewed a range of common threats including to civil aviation.

"At no time were intelligence sources or methods discussed. The president did not disclose any military operations that were not already publicly known. I was in the room. It didn't happen."

This whole thing had been possibly set up by the President -- whoever he is -- to actually sniff out where from and who is leaking info to the Washington Post... Most likely someone is going to loose his/her job at the White House... They know who he/she is...

 

he had the right to reveal the information....

 

US President Donald Trump has defended revealing information to Russian officials, saying in a pair of tweets he shared "facts pertaining to terrorism and airline flight safety" and had "the absolute right" to do so.

Key points:
  • Russia's foreign ministry reportedly says Donald Trump did not reveal information
  • White House declares allegations are incorrect
  • House Speaker Paul Ryan demands a full explanation of what happened

Mr Trump was responding to reports that he revealed highly classified information to Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov during an Oval Office meeting last week, putting a source of intelligence on Islamic State at risk.

External Link: Donald Trump: "As President I wanted to share with Russia (at an openly scheduled W.H. meeting) which I have the absolute right to do, facts pertaining..."

 


External Link: Donald Trump"...to terrorism and airline flight safety. Humanitarian reasons, plus I want Russia to greatly step their fight against ISIS and terrorism"

But Mr Trump wrote on Twitter that he shared the information for "humanitarian reasons, plus I want Russia to greatly step up their fight against ISIS & terrorism".

Later, during a press conference with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Mr Trump reiterated his meeting with Mr Lavrov was "very, very successful" and would help promote the fight against terrorism.

The Kremlin described the reports Mr Trump had disclosed classified intelligence as "complete nonsense".

"It's not a subject for us, it's the latest piece of nonsense. We don't want to have anything do to with this nonsense," Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.

laced with "sensitiveness"?

 

Intelligence agencies and senior government officials tend to use a lot of jargon. Laced with acronyms, this language sometimes does not translate very well into journalese when it hits the media.

For example, I experienced a sense of disorientation two weeks ago over the word “sensitive” as used by several senators, Sally Yates, and James Clapper during committee testimony into Russiagate. “Sensitive” has, of course, a number of meanings. But what astonished me was how quickly the media interpreted its use in the hearings to mean that the conversations and emails that apparently were recorded or intercepted involving Trump associates and assorted Russians as “sensitive contacts” meant that they were necessarily inappropriate, dangerous, or even illegal.

When Yates and Clapper were using “sensitive” thirteen times in the 86 page transcript of the Senate hearings, they were referring to the medium rather than the message. They were both acknowledging that the sources of the information were intelligence related, sometimes referred to as “sensitive” by intelligence professionals and government insiders as a shorthand way to describe that they are “need to know” material derived from either classified “methods” or foreign-liaison partners. That does not mean that the information contained is either good or bad or even true or false, but merely a way of expressing that the information must be protected because of where it came from or how it was developed, hence the “sensitivity.”

The word also popped up this week in a Washington Post exclusive report alleging that the president had, in his recent meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, gone too far while also suggesting that the source of a highly classified government program might be inferred from the context of what was actually revealed. The Post describes how

The information Trump relayed had been provided by a U.S. partner through an intelligence-sharing arrangement considered so sensitive that details have been withheld from allies and tightly restricted even within the U.S. government, officials said. The partner had not given the United States permission to share the material with Russia, and officials said that Trump’s decision to do so risks cooperation from an ally that has access to the inner workings of the Islamic State.

The Post is unfortunately also providing ISIS with more information than it “needs to know” to make its story more dramatic, further compromising the source. Furthermore, it should be understood that the paper is extremely hostile to Trump, the story is as always based on anonymous sources, and the revelation comes on top of another unverifiable Post article claiming that the Russians might have sought to sneak a recording device into the White House during the visit.

And in the world of "intelligence", it is likely that the information is 50 per cent fake, fabricated or even 100 per cent unreliable...

Sometimes (often), these sorts of information are "tests" to check the channels of communication...

 

coming from Israel...

The Israeli government was the source of the classified intelligence that President Trump shared with a pair of Russian officials in a meeting last week, multiple reports said Tuesday,

Citing a former official with knowledge of the matter, NBC News reported that Trump’s information came from America’s longstanding Mideast ally.

Trump and his national security adviser, H.R. McMaster, both defended his discussion with the Russians, saying that nothing inappropriate had been revealed.

McMaster said the president wasn’t aware where the information about ISIS threats to airliners originated or how it was gathered.

And we still don't know if the intel was genuine, important and already available on the WWW.... Here my guess is that the whole thing -- the "intel" -- was planned with a Mossad mastery to PISS on Iran... If you do not understand why, then I can't do anything for you... er well okay:

The idea is to devalue Iran in the eyes of the Russians. Youwiv me?

history of diplomacy...

What does this mean? If you are a historian eventually writing the events of say 7 May 2017, in 2024, you would have to see a diplomacy that is tailored to suit an "intelligence". By then, in 2024, you are able to access all the "intelligence" papers, you find that this was true... except what you cannot uncover is that the "INTELLIGENCE" WAS TAILORED TO SUIT THE DIPLOMACY. And this is done time and time again. At this level, the war on Saddam and his WMDs was a fantastical "intelligence" tailored to suit the diplomacy which in this case was WAR. Then we are told that the "intelligence" was faulty. RUBBISH. The "INTELLIGENCE" WAS TAILORED TO SUIT THE WAR. The intel was like a card trick on Penn and Teller... See The Trilogy...

 

Now, my guess is that the Trump camp leaked the story DELIBERATELY to the Washington Post via devious channels. Trump would be chastised by the WP, but Trump is thick-skinned and could not care less -- BUT the fact that the WP would report on the "sensitive value" of the "intelligence", would actually add value to the "intelligence". It could be (it is) complete baloney, but with the WP up in arms blah blah blah, this should bring it "value" in the eyes of the Russians. Meanwhile the Russians would be very "grateful" for the "exclusive" information which they would already have and already dismissed due to their own "intelligence" reports on the same subject. But they will shut up tight about it, because this is a good entry into Trump's trousers.

 

See toon at top... ANALYSE CAREFULLY... What does the Ambassador think? "I've heard that one before"...

adding cred to baloney...

Read comment above... This comment by Danny Yatom is designed to add credibility to the "intelligence" from Mossad supplied by Trump to the Russians. Very neat trick of deception... It's trying to add credibility to baloney.
