    Ex CIA Directors Slam Trump

    Yes, It’s True: Peter Strzok Failed His Polygraph Yet Retained Security Clearance and Position on Two Investigations… Posted on July 6, 2018 by sundance I have been asked about this repeatedly: Validating Paul Sperry’s tweet. Yes, FBI Agent Peter Strzok failed his polygraph and his supervisors were notified on January 16th, 2016, his results were “out of scope“. Meaning he failed his polygraph test. Yet he was never removed from any responsibilities; and against dept policy, he did not have his clearance revoked until he could clear. This was discussed during the Rosenstein testimony and overlooked by most. WATCH: . After Strzok was recently removed from official responsibility within the FBI, his security clearances were retroactively revoked. That revocation was due to OPR review and was a retroactive revocation action initiated by career officials within the FBI to cover-up (ie. CYA) the two-and-a-half years he was allowed to work when he should not have been. Current FBI officials, including Trump appointed FBI Director Christopher Wray, are covering up the scandal within the FBI in a misguided effort to save the institution. This is the same reason the FBI hid the Strzok/Page memos and emails away from IG review and congressional oversight. There is a massive, ongoing, ‘institutional’ cover-up within the DOJ and FBI. These are simply examples highlighting the severity therein. Peter Strzok and his legal team are counting on the need for the institution to be protected as their shield from any prosecution. As long as AG Jeff Sessions, DAG Rod Rosenstein, FBI Director Chris Wray and Deputy Director David Bowditch put the institution ahead of the need for accountability, there will be no repercussions against the former DOJ and FBI officials for unlawful conduct.

  13. Officials expect to reopen Kirkuk-Erbil road ahead of Eid Kurdistan24 Erbil | August 17-2018 The time now is 02:24 AM Alton Bridge Bridge is located on the outskirts of Arbil governorate (photo: social networking sites) Iraq Kirkuk Kurdistan through Erbil Kirkuk Arbil (Kurdistan 24) - The Directorate of Roads and Bridges in Kirkuk completed the construction of the iron bridge in the town of Alton Cobri in a first step to reopen the road, which was closed since the clashes that broke out between the Peshmerga and Iraqi forces late last year. "The highway will be reopened before Eid al-Adha on the 21st of this month," said Kirkuk road director Qaimaz Ali Moussa in a statement released on Thursday. "The final work of the bridge will be completed on Friday and the road will reopen on Sunday," he said. Traffic on the main road between Erbil and Kirkuk was cut off several months ago after the attack by Iraqi forces and ended with control of Kirkuk. The move was a military response from Baghdad against the Kurds' historic independence referendum in September and won overwhelming support for independence. The bridge, which lies in the middle of the road, was badly damaged by the clashes. After several meetings between the Kurdistan Regional Government and the federal government, the two sides agreed to build a temporary iron bridge to restore the traffic to the road until the reconstruction of the bridge. The current steel bridge is 32 meters long and seven meters wide, according to the Roads and Bridges Administration. All cars will be allowed to pass through, except for large trucks. The bridge will facilitate travel for Iraqis and tourists ahead of Eid al-Adha, as well as help resume trade and cargo shipments between Erbil and Baghdad. Two checkpoints are expected to be built in the area, where Peshmerga forces will search for those entering Irbil while federal police will inspect people entering Kirkuk. The Erbil-Kirkuk road is one of the strategic routes for Iraqi and Kurdish travelers who travel between governorates in the south and the north.
  14. Intensive meetings are active in Baghdad and Trump's envoy seeks to advance the talks Kurdistan24 Erbil | August 17-2018 The time now is 11:58 AM US President George W. Bush's envoy meets with Iraqi officials to discuss the formation of a government that Washington says must rule out corrupt officials. Iraq formation of the government of Baghdad Arbil (Kurdistan 24) - Iraqi leaders are holding intensive meetings in Baghdad hours after the final results of parliamentary elections to the Federal Court for approval, in an attempt to accelerate the formation of the government in a complex process to a large extent. This comes at a time when US President George W. Bush's envoy is holding shuttle talks with Iraqi officials to discuss forming a government that Washington says must rule out corrupt people. The results of counting and manual counting in the election results did not witness any changes. Local media circulated a picture showing the leader of the Fatah coalition Hadi al-Amiri while Vice President Osama al-Nujaifi was talking to him and Khamis al-Khanjar, who is sponsoring the Iraqi decision coalition. Kurdistan 24 could not independently check the history of the images. It seems that the picture has been taken recently, especially with the intensive meetings that Iraqi politicians are racing to discuss the sharing of positions in the new government. Amari is at odds with the dagger. Vice President Nuri al-Maliki is trying to pull the rug out of Haider al-Abadi, who is seeking a second term. It is difficult to predict the positions of Iraqi politicians. Nujaifi held a meeting with al-Maliki in Baghdad in the framework of talks to form a "larger bloc." Nujaifi said in a statement after meeting with McGurk on Thursday that the next government should be "a comprehensive government for all the spectrums of the Iraqi people ... and be ... independent neutral away from regional influences to ensure the country's building and security." The statement quoted Trump's envoy as saying that the United States "strongly supports the fight against corruption and spoilers and keep them away from forming the next government." McGowork said Washington was "choosing people with integrity, seriousness and experience to take responsibility to ensure the success of the government." A coalition leader who has been winning the election, Moqtada al-Sadr, has recently lobbied for opposition if the political process remains the same. Sadr said 40 conditions he said the next prime minister should enjoy, including not to be dual nationality and be loyal to Iraq and speaks more than language and fights corruption, which are largely compatible with those put forward by the Shiite reference to Sistani. Analysts say Sadr's conditions seem difficult given the complexity of the country's political landscape, which is still stifled by various conflicts and divisions. The scenario of 2010 may be repeated with Sadr, as happened with Iyad Allawi when he was ousted by Maliki after his alliance with other blocs and the realization of the principle of the "largest bloc" controversial. Maliki is proposing a "political majority" in a move he says will limit sectarian quotas that have been adopted in the country as a basis for consensus since the fall of the former regime.
