Video released by the Combined Joint Task Force claims to show bombs dropped by F-15 and F-35 jets on Qanus Island in Iraq.
Washington (CNN)In a previously undisclosed secret mission in 2017, the United States successfully extracted from Russia one of its highest-level covert sources inside the Russian government, multiple Trump administration officials with direct knowledge told CNN.
A person directly involved in the discussions said that the removal of the Russian was driven, in part, by concerns that President Donald Trump and his administration repeatedly mishandled classified intelligence and could contribute to exposing the covert source as a spy.The decision to carry out the extraction occurred soon after a May 2017 meeting in the Oval Office in which Trump discussed highly classified intelligence with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and then-Russian Ambassador to the US Sergey Kislyak. The intelligence, concerning ISIS in Syria, had been provided by Israel.
Thousands of demonstrators in Hong Kong marched to the U.S. Consulate on Sunday, urging President Donald Trump to “liberate” their city as they press for more democratic freedoms in the semiautonomous Chinese territory.
Protesters converged at a park in central Hong Kong before marching. They chanted “Resist Beijing, Liberate Hong Kong” and “Stand with Hong Kong, fight for freedom.”
Many of them, clad in black shirts and wearing masks, waved American flags and carried posters that read “President Trump, please liberate Hong Kong.” Riot police stood watch during the march to the nearby U.S. Consulate.
The Trump administration is making it more difficult for the children of some U.S. service members and U.S. government employees living abroad to automatically become U.S. citizens, according to a policy alert released Wednesday by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.
The rule appears to primarily affect the children of naturalized U.S. citizens serving in the armed forces who have not lived in the U.S. for a required period of time, a relatively small number — estimated to be approximately 100 annually, according to a Defense Department official.
89 Miles Completed and Counting! A new website “TrumpWallconstrution” went live last week with information on the current progress of the Trump Border Wall. The website includes an interactive map that has information on planning and current work in progress of the prominent sectors of the border wall:
Welcome to my website! I created this to be a one stop shop to find out all about the status of Trump’s border wall. The fake news refuses to cover this in any kind of meaningful way other than shallow 30 second clips or short articles. I was frustrated that nobody was covering this in a way to really understand exactly where the new wall was being built and where the existing wall was. The US-Mexico border is 2,000 miles long and I didn’t really understand exactly where the “wall” already was and where the new wall would be built. So with my interactive map you can see exactly where the wall is being built as well as current “wall”.
I will do my best to keep my map and website updated with the latest information including pictures and videos.
President Hassan Rouhani says the United States should lift all its “cruel” and “unlawful” sanctions against Iran and begin respecting the nation’s rights as a “first step” towards dialog, emphasizing that the Islamic Republic will not engage in any negotiations for the mere sake of photo opportunities.
The Iranian president made the remarks on Tuesday, one day after French President Emmanuel Macron expressed hopes for a meeting between Rouhani and his American counterpart, Donald Trump, “in the next few weeks.”
“We seek to resolve issues and problems in a rational way but we are not after photos. For anyone wanting to take a picture with Hassan Rouhani, this is not possible” unless that party chooses to set aside all the oppressive sanctions and respect the Iranian nation’s rights, the Iranian president said in a speech aired live on state television.
