  6. Trump blames Flynn’s vetting on Obama administration President Donald Trump arrives to speak at the National Rifle Association Leadership Conference, Friday, April 28, 2017, in Atlanta. (Evan Vucci/Associated Press) By Chad Day | AP April 28 at 6:19 PM WASHINGTON — Even though he named Michael Flynn to be his top national security aide, President Donald Trump on Friday laid the blame for any flaws in Flynn’s vetting at the feet of his predecessor. In an interview airing Friday evening on Fox News Channel’s “The First 100 Days,” Trump tried to deflect recent criticism of his decision to appoint Flynn as national security adviser despite Flynn’s past lobbying on behalf of Turkish government interests and his acceptance of tens of thousands of dollars from a Russian state-sponsored television network. “When they say we didn’t vet, well Obama I guess didn’t vet, because he was approved at the highest level of security by the Obama administration,” Trump said, referring to the previous administration’s approval of Flynn’s security clearance. “So when he came into our administration, for a short period of time, he came in, he was already approved by the Obama administration and he had years left on that approval,” Trump added. Though Flynn was indeed with the Trump administration for a short period before he was forced out, he campaigned vigorously for Trump for months during the 2016 election battle, including a fiery speech at the Republican National Convention in which he joined in as the crowd jeered Democrat Hillarious Clinton. “Lock her up, that’s right,” he called out, applauding the delegates’ chants. President Barack Obama fired Flynn from his post as director of the Defense Intelligence Agency in 2014, but Flynn maintained a security clearance that was reissued in January 2016. Trump appointed Flynn as national security adviser in January. He forced him to step down in February, saying Flynn had misled senior administration officials, including the vice president, about his contacts with Russian officials. Trump’s comments echoed the defense advanced by his press secretary Sean Spicer on Thursday, as the Pentagon’s watchdog confirmed it was investigating Flynn, a retired U.S. Army lieutenant general, over whether he failed to get U.S. government approval to receive foreign payments. Among those payments was more than $33,000 from the RT television network, which U.S. intelligence officials have branded as propaganda front for Russia’s government. The network paid Flynn for attending a gala in Moscow. At the event, Flynn was seated next to Russian President Vladimir Putin. Earlier this week, the top Republican and Democrat on a House oversight committee said they believe Flynn broke federal law by failing to get permission to accept foreign payments and failing to disclose the payments after he received them. Flynn attorney Robert Kelner has defended his client by saying that Flynn did disclose the Moscow trip itself in briefings with the DIA, which is a component of the Defense Department. Kelner said those briefings occurred before Flynn left on the trip and after he returned, citing them as evidence that Flynn was forthcoming. Even though he may have disclosed the trip, both the House committee and the U.S. Army have said they have found no evidence that he disclosed the payments or receive permission to accept them. In addition to the committee, the Defense Department’s inspector general and the Army are scrutinizing the Russia-linked payments as well as Flynn’s share of more than $530,000 worth of foreign agent work he did for a Turkish businessman. Flynn acknowledged in a filing with the Justice Department last month that his work investigating a Turkish cleric could have principally benefited Turkey’s government. On Friday, the ranking Democrat on the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform faulted the Trump administration for blaming Obama. “The White House had its own responsibility to fully vet General Flynn since new information became public during the transition — well after General Flynn’s last background check — about his lobbying on behalf of foreign interests,” said Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md. “The White House needs to stop making excuses to protect General Flynn.”

  9. APRIL 28, 2017 Half billion Qatari bags seized by Abadi .. Is the summit of Mount snow crisis between the two countries? Was it "a trap" for Doha or Baghdad? It will be the winner in the end? You read different Crisis faced by the State of Qatar and the emir young Tamim bin Hamad Al-many and complex second, and includes more than the issue of a political file, but RCI, which is in its crisis worsening with Iraq, and Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi different, and have a special face, and above all this and that are highly dangerous effects may appear in the distant future, or near it. Qataris, like most of their peers in the Arabian Peninsula (except Yemen) are fond of fish of all kinds, and falcons private, and chasing a bird "bustard" deer in every place where you in all over the world, and suffer hardships, sometimes even risking their lives, in order to satisfy this hobby legitimate, princes or elders were or from the public, and that sums up the last part of their plight is complicated by rapidly with Iraq, and represents the tip of the iceberg perhaps other crises have regional ramifications likes to talk about at the moment at least. The story begins by feet 24 diagonally, most of them sons of the royal family to continue "their year" annual, go fishing in the state of Iraq a year and a half ago, when a third of its territory out of government control because of the "stretch" the "Islamic state", and destabilize the presence of militias, security armed, noting that most fertile fishing areas, located in the south, intensely, the areas that most of the inhabitants of the Shiite sect. Qataris have entered the country legally, through visas obtained from the Iraqi Embassy in Doha, which he was legally entry, but what is illegal and humanitarian is being kidnapped by one of the sectarian militias, and claim these militias a huge ransom in exchange for their release. Most of the mediation and contacts that took place behind the scenes throughout the year and a half last year, failed, or has not achieved little success, that was the case of the four Syrian towns (Virulence and Kefraya and Zabadani and Madaya) besieged by the opposition to the Syrian regime of Islamist groups, it blew up the link between the release process trapped in these towns and the release of the Qatari hostages, we do not want to go into the details of sectarianism because this space is not their place. The crisis erupted, and appeared on the surface, when Iraqi Prime Minister Mr. Abadi revealed in a press conference last Tuesday found 23 bag was on the back of a Qatari plane arrived at Baghdad airport for the transfer of Qatari hostages to Doha after their release as part of a complex deal that included the provision of ransoms and allow the hostages to leave trapped in the Syrian towns (mentioned above), show that these bags contained $ 500 million in cash, according to Mr. Abadi he said. Iraqi Prime Minister was frank, and sometimes convincing, when he said he was not in favor of granting Qatari fishermen entry visas to his country because of the seriousness of the security situation, but he did not say how he could not intervene, a prime minister, and in charge of the largest in the state, not to give them these visas required, and stressed that the money was brought by the Qataris will ransom, and considered that the provision of hundreds of millions of dollars to armed groups "is unacceptable." Mr. Abadi concluded his press conference by saying that his government considers that the entry of these funds, and without consulting with them, is contrary to the laws and legislation, and could lead to support for terrorism or involvement in money laundering operations and this was impounded. Qatari Foreign Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdul Rahman Al Thani replied to Mr. Abadi said, "The introduction of these funds to Baghdad came to support the Iraqi government and its efforts to release the kidnapped, and that this entry has been officially," he said "these funds and country must return to the Qatari Treasury if Mr. Abadi does not want ", and in a statement to" Al-Jazeera. " He denied Sheikh Abdul Rahman bin violation of his state of international law, or that these funds will go to armed groups, and said it entered officially. Iraqi Foreign Ministry responded in an immediate statement on Friday in which she said, "The seizure of country funds that have entered the country illegally, and without the knowledge of the Qatari government is in the direction of arbitration law and the fight against the phenomenon of kidnapping and promotion of financial blackmail, and to prevent any point on the large sums of money from by exposing the lives of Iraqi citizens or nationals of other countries entering Iraq at risk in the future and to stand firmly against this dangerous approach. " We do not know how it will be resolved this crisis, which will be solved inevitably end up, but some argue that sending half a billion dollars in cash is not familiar traditions between the countries, especially those that deal with sending funds through recognizable channels such as money transfers through banks, with delivery that there remain exceptions? There is no doubt that the release of the "hostages" a great achievement, whether those of Qatari or Syrians, or any other nationalities, because this great effort to end their suffering is worthy of recognition, but this does not preclude say that the excess of the limit of confidence, and without careful study and appreciation deep position, give the opposite results in most cases. These national fishing trip will enter history, or the Guinness Book of at least figures, the most expensive trip, the most expensive politically or financially, or both .. and God knows. "Ray Day"
