OBAMA SUPPORTS SAUDI INVASION OF SYRIA

Anxious to rollback Russian support for al-Assad

BY KURT NIMMO

According to the German newspaper Deutsche Wirtschafts Nachrichten  The Obama administration supports a planned Saudi-led invasion of Syria in order to curb Russian support for Syria. The government of Bashar al-Assad invited Russia into the country to help fight US and Saudi supported jihadists in September, 2015.

US support for the planned Saudi invasion comes as al-Assad’s Syrian Arab Army (SAA) with the help of Iranian security forces, Hezbollah and Iraqi Shi’a fighters close in on the major jihadist stronghold of Aleppo and surrounding countryside.

The SAA has captured the towns of Nubul, Ta’ana and al-Zahraa and is closing in on Idlib while Kurdish troops secured several kilometers of the Gaziantep-Aleppo road and captured the town of Deir Jamal. Battles in Bayanoun, Kafr Naya, and Hayyan have defeated the jihadists and closed down a supply route over the Turkish border.

Russia has conducted airstrikes in support of the operation. The Russian Defense Ministry has confirmed it has put into service a large number of T-90 Vladimir tanks in Syria and the SAA is using the third generation battle tank along with assault groups to establish control over a declared security zone between the towns of Azaz and Jarabulus on the Syria-Turkey border.

Confronting the Russians

Deutsche Wirtschafts Nachrichten notes “the Saudis who support several terrorist groups in Syria together with the US are especially interested to overthrow President Assad. The Americans, in turn, want to prevent Russians from playing the main part in the reorganization in Syria.”
The invasion, reportedly planned for March, and billed as an offensive against the Islamic State will put the Saudi coalition into direct conflict with the SAA, Iranian security forces, Hezbollah, Iraqi Shi’a militias and the Russians.

Turkey has demonstrated its willingness to confront Russia directly. In November a Turkish Air Force F-16 fighter jet shot down a Russian Sukhoi Su-24M bomber aircraft near the Syria–Turkey border. Turkey is a member of NATO.
Following the establishment of a Russian airbase in Syria near the Turkish border President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Turkey may enter the war on the side of the jihadists fighting against the al-Assad government.
The downing of the Russian aircraft appears to be part of a larger strategy by the United States. In October the leading globalist Zbigniew Brzezinski told the Financial Times he advised Obama to disarm the Russians if they keep attacking the CIA-trained militants in Syria.
“The Russian naval and air presences in Syria are vulnerable, isolated geographically from their homeland,” Brzezinski said. “They could be ‘disarmed’ if they persist in provoking the US.”
“In these rapidly unfolding circumstances the US has only one real option if it is to protect its wider stakes in the region: to convey to Moscow the demand that it cease and desist from military actions that directly affect American assets,” he said.
The Saudi-led invasion is part of the strategy outlined by Brzezinski. It is designed to raise the stakes for Russia and its partners and drive Iran out of Syria.
The strategy, however, is highly risky and is likely to result in an escalation and widening of the conflict and, in a worse case scenario, precipitate direct conflict between the United States and Russia.

Hacker posts info of 20K FBI employees, 9K DHS staff

 

Names and addresses of 20,000 FBI employees and over 9,000 Homeland Security workers were dumped on the internet by unknown hackers after they tricked their way into a Department of Justice computer.

Tweeting as @DotGovs, the hackers posted a link pointing to a plain-text post on CryptoBin listing names, job titles, work emails, phone numbers and the states for thousands of employees of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and FBI. The list includes computer specialists, procurement officers, budget analysts, directors and senior advisers.

Capture

Several news outlets were contacted by the hackers on Sunday evening and given a preview of the data, including Vice’s Motherboard blog and FedScoop. According to the sites, the information in the leak was accurate.

“We take these reports very seriously, however there is no indication at this time that there is any breach of sensitive or personally identifiable information,” DHS spokesman S.Y. Lee said in a statement Monday morning.a

The hackers told Motherboard they accessed the information by compromising an email account of a Justice Department official. They used the email address to “social engineer” access to the DOJ intranet, calling technical support to give them a password.

“So I called up, told them I was new and I didn’t understand how to get past [the portal],” one of the hackers told Motherboard. “They asked if I had a token code, I said no, they said ‘that’s fine – just use our one’.”

At that point, the hackers gained access to about a terabyte of data, and managed to download about 200 gigabytes.

“This is for Palestine, Ramallah, West Bank, Gaza, This is for the child that is searching for an answer,” the hackers said at the beginning of their CryptoBin post. Both the message and the method used in the hack resemble those of a different group of anonymous hackers that last year breached the private email accounts of CIA Director John Brennan and National Intelligence Director James Clapper.

Hit by a series of high-profile data breaches in recent years, the US government is demanding more cyber security funding. Last week, Defense Secretary Ash Carter requested nearly $7 billion for the Pentagon’s cyber operations budget in 2017, to “further DOD’s network defenses… build more training ranges for our cyber warriors; and also develop cyber tools and infrastructure needed to provide offensive cyber options.”

The Pentagon’s cyber budget for the current fiscal year is $5.5 billion.

SOME CLINTON EMAILS ‘TOO DAMAGING’ TO RELEASE OBAMA ADMIN CONFIRMS

Capture

BY BRADLEY KLAPPER

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obama administration confirmed for the first time Friday that Hillary Clinton’s home server contained closely guarded government secrets, censoring 22 emails that contained material requiring one of the highest levels of classification. The revelation comes three days before Clinton competes in the Iowa presidential caucuses.

State Department officials also said the agency’s Diplomatic Security and Intelligence and Research bureaus are investigating if any of the information was classified at the time of transmission, going to the heart of Clinton’s defense of her email practices.

The department will release its next batch of emails from her time as secretary of state later Friday.

But The Associated Press learned seven email chains are being withheld in full for containing “top secret” information. The 37 pages include messages a key intelligence official recently said concerned “special access programs” -highly restricted, classified material that could point to confidential sources or clandestine programs like drone strikes.

“The documents are being upgraded at the request of the intelligence community because they contain a category of top secret information,” State Department spokesman John Kirby told the AP, calling the withholding of documents in full “not unusual.” That means they won’t be published online with others being released, even with blacked-out boxes.

Department officials wouldn’t describe the substance of the emails, or say if Clinton sent any herself.

Clinton, the Democratic presidential front-runner, insists she never sent or received information on her personal email account that was classified at the time. No emails released so far were stamped “CLASSIFIED” or “TOP SECRET,” but reviewers previously designated more than 1,000 messages at lower classification levels. Friday’s will be the first at top secret level.

Even if Clinton didn’t write or forward the messages, she still would have been required to report any classification slippages she recognized in emails she received. But without classification markings, that may have been difficult, especially if the information was publicly available.

“We firmly oppose the complete blocking of the release of these emails,” Clinton campaign spokesman Brain Fallon said. “Since first providing her emails to the State Department more than one year ago, Hillary Clinton has urged that they be made available to the public. We feel no differently today.”

Fallon accused the “loudest and leakiest participants” in a process of bureaucratic infighting for withholding the exchanges. The documents, he said, originated in the State Department’s unclassified system before they ever reached Clinton, and “in at least one case, the emails appear to involve information from a published news article.”

“This appears to be overclassification run amok,” Fallon said.

Kirby said the State Department was focused, as part of a Freedom of Information Act review of Clinton’s emails, on “whether they need to be classified today.” Past classification questions, he said, “are being, and will be, handled separately by the State Department.” It is the first indication of such a probe.

Department responses for classification infractions could include counseling, warnings or other action, officials said. They wouldn’t say if Clinton or senior aides who’ve since left government could face penalties. The officials weren’t authorized to speak on the matter and demanded anonymity.

Separately, Kirby said the department is withholding eight email chains, totaling 18 messages, between President Barack Obama and Clinton. These are remaining confidential “to protect the president’s ability to receive unvarnished advice and counsel,” and will be released eventually like other presidential records.

The emails have been a Clinton campaign issue since 10 months ago, when the AP discovered her exclusive use while in office of a homebrew email server in the basement of her family’s New York home. Doing so wasn’t expressly forbidden. Clinton first called the decision a matter of convenience, then a mistake.

Last March, Clinton and the State Department said no business conducted in the emails included top-secret matters. Both said her account was never hacked or compromised, which security experts assess as unlikely.

Clinton and the State Department also claimed the vast majority of her emails were preserved properly for archiving because she corresponded mainly with government accounts. They’ve backtracked from that claim in recent months.

The special access programs emails surfaced last week, when Charles I. McCullough, lead auditor for U.S. intelligence agencies, told Congress he found some in Clinton’s account.

Kirby confirmed the “denied-in-full emails” are among those McCullough recently cited. He said one was among those McCullough identified last summer as possibly containing top secret information.

The AP reported last August that one focused on a forwarded news article about the CIA’s classified U.S. drone program. Such operations are widely discussed publicly, including by top U.S. officials, and State Department officials debated McCullough’s claim. The other concerned North Korean nuclear weapons programs, according to officials.

At the time, several officials from different agencies suggested the disagreement over the drone emails reflected a tendency to overclassify material, and a lack of consistent classification policies across government.

The FBI also is looking into Clinton’s email setup, but has said nothing about the nature of its probe. Independent experts say it’s unlikely Clinton will be charged with wrongdoing, based on details that have surfaced so far and the lack of indications she intended to break laws.

“What I would hope comes out of all of this is a bit of humility” and Clinton’s acknowledgement that “I made some serious mistakes,” said Bradley Moss, a Washington lawyer specializing in security clearance matters.

Legal questions aside, it’s the potential political costs that probably more concern Clinton. She has struggled in surveys measuring perceived trustworthiness and any investigation, buoyed by evidence of top secret material coursing through her account, could negate a main selling point for her becoming commander in chief: her national security resume.

New AUMF allows an autocratic president to wage war anywhere in the world without congressional approval

Kurt Nimmo | Infowars.com – JANUARY 25, 2016

A week after Obama’s State of the Union address Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell took a procedural step known as Rule 14 and put a measure on the floor and introduced a refashioned AUMF (Authorization for Use of Military Force) written by the Republican neocon Sen. Lindsey Graham.

In November Graham spelled out the details of his AUMF:

I’m going to introduce an authorization to use military force against ISIL that is not limited by time, geography or means. We only have two choices regarding ISIL—fight them in their backyard or fight them in ours. I choose to fight them in their backyard.

At the time it was said Graham’s AUMF had little chance of making it to the Senate floor, but that changed last week when McConnell used Rule 14 which bypasses the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

Graham’s authorization would not rule out the use of ground troops and would not have time or geographic limitations.

Sarah Mimms and Alex Rogers wrote for the National Journal:

The AUMF put for­ward by Mc­Con­nell would not re­strict the pres­id­ent’s use of ground troops, nor have any lim­its re­lated to time or geo­graphy. Nor would it touch on the is­sue of what to do with the 2001 AUMF, which the Obama ad­min­is­tra­tion has used to at­tack IS­IS des­pite that au­thor­iz­a­tion’s in­struc­tions to use force against those who planned the 9/11 ter­ror­ist at­tacks. By con­trast, the leg­al au­thor­ity put for­ward by the ad­min­is­tra­tion last Feb­ru­ary wouldn’t au­thor­ize “en­dur­ing of­fens­ive ground com­bat op­er­a­tions” and would have ended three years after en­act­ment, un­less reau­thor­ized.

“Considering what Bush and Obama did with the 2001 AUMF—invading and occupying countries in ‘pre-emptive’ war, CIA black sites, extrajudicial killings, inventing the term ‘enemy combatants’ to bypass international law, new forms of torture, drone bombing women and children, and assassinating U.S. citizens—the specter of a new and expanded AUMF is truly frightening,” writes Justin Gardner.

Connecticut Democrat Sen. Chris said Graham’s “resolution is a total rewrite of the War Powers Clause in the U.S. Constitution. It is essentially a declaration of international martial law, a sweeping transfer of military power to the president that will allow him or her to send U.S. troops almost anywhere in the world, for almost any reason, with absolutely no limitations.”

In addition to violating Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution, which states only the Congress has the authority to declare war, Graham’s AUMF undermines the War Powers Resolution enacted in 1973 during the Vietnam War. 

The Resolution was adopted in the form of a congressional joint resolution and provided that the President can send the military into action abroad only by declaration of war by Congress, “statutory authorization,” or in case of “a national emergency created by attack upon the United States, its territories or possessions, or its armed forces.”

WHITE HOUSE SCIENCE CZAR JOHN HOLDREN TARGETED BY NOTORIOUS ‘TEEN HACKERS’

Screen Shot 2016-01-19 at 11.19.32 AM

High-profile hacking spree reaches White House officials

A former member of the infamous “Crackas With Attitude” hacking group, which breached the personal email of CIA Director John Brennan last October, gained access Monday to several of White House Science Advisor Dr. John P. Holdren’s online accounts.
According to Motherboard’s Lorenzo Franceschi-Bicchierai, who spoke with two former CWA members, a hacker known as “Fearz” was able to get into Holdren’s Comcast account by successfully “spear phishing (a term for getting information by deceiving via a targeted attack) his wife.”
While impersonating Holdren, Fearz reportedly asked Holdren’s wife Cheryl over email for the password to the couple’s “joint Xfinity account.”
After gaining access, Fearz repeated the same prank used by fellow hacker “Cracka” against Director of National Intelligence James Clapper last week by routing all of Holdren’s telephone calls to the “Free Palestine Movement.”

“When I called the number, the founder of the Free Palestine Movement Paul Larudee picked up the phone,” writes Franceschi-Bicchierai. “Larudee said that the same person who called him last week to tell him that he would receive calls directed at Clapper called him again on Monday morning.”
The Motherboard journalist, who was told by the White House that Holdren had indeed been targeted, also received Holdren’s personal cell phone number from the hacker.
“When I called it, a person claiming to be John Holdren picked it up. However, he declined to comment until I proved who I was, and asked me to send him an email to his personal Gmail account,” he writes. “But he didn’t respond to my email, nor another subsequent call.”
Just last week, another ex-CWA hacker known as “Cracka” successfully targeted a former Geospatial Intelligence executive’s Facebook and LinkedIn accounts as well.
“She’s a government retard and deserves everything bad to happen to her, just like every other gov loser that’s gonna be breached,” Cracka told Infowars.
While the hackers have publicly released the details of multiple high-level targets, many others remain hidden for the time being.

Screen Shot 2016-01-19 at 11.23.35 AMAside from targeting specific government employees, CWA also leaked“34,000 lines of emails, names, position and phone numbers of gov associates, including military,” last November.
