Good morning, D Briefers, from 8,000 feet elevation and the annual Aspen Security Forum, which could not have been better timed. A list of Trump administration officials and national security leaders from military, intelligence, homeland and foreign policy circles have gathered to give a collective, “What the…?” and make sense of the whirlwind of fallout continuing from the NATO Summit and Helsinki meeting.

No really, what agreements? “In a speech to Russian diplomats in Moscow, Putin says summit with Trump was ‘successful overall and led to useful agreements,”’ reports NPR’s Lucian Kim, from Moscow, early Thursday. (“Better than super” is how Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov put it a few days ago.)

Implementation will take a second meeting. Trump then tweeted: “The Summit with Russia was a great success, except with the real enemy of the people, the Fake News Media. I look forward to our second meeting so that we can start implementing some of the many things discussed, including stopping terrorism, security for Israel, nuclear……..” (deep breath, second tweet) “…proliferation, cyber attacks, trade, Ukraine, Middle East peace, North Korea and more. There are many answers, some easy and some hard, to these problems…but they can ALL be solved!” (If you’re tracking, we believe that’s also Trump’s first use of his “enemy of the people” line since five journalists were murdered in Annapolis three weeks ago.)

Did Trump agree to start normalizing military relations with Russians? Maybe. That’s one of the statements to come out of Moscow Tuesday, so we asked around. The Pentagon doesn’t seem to know. Neither does Congress. More telling, neither does Trump’s own National Security Council, which said, uh, we’re looking into it.

NSC spox: “The Helsinki summit was the beginning of a process between the United States and Russia to reduce tensions and advance areas of cooperation in our mutual interest,” a National Security Council spokesperson told Defense One on Tuesday. “We are reviewing the discussion between President Trump and President Putin, considering possible next steps, and have nothing further to announce at this time.”

Investigative journo says FBI knew about recently outed ‘Russian spy,’ but ignored her … until now Conservative News Today
 

mikenova shared this story from Comments on: Investigative journo says FBI knew about recently outed ‘Russian spy,’ but ignored her … until now.

 

Certain members of the FBI reportedly knew about recently charged Russian operative Maria Butina and her operations but did not warn anyone.

 

Butina was indicted this week on charges of being a covert Russian agent but, according to investigative reporter John Solomon, the FBI knew about Butina’s nefarious activities as she befriended  leaders of the National Rifle Association and the Conservative Political Action Conference.

“I’ll tell you a little story I’ve never told before,” Solomon told Fox Business Network’s Lou Dobbs on Wednesday.

“In March of 2015,  I observed her at several events and really cozying up to conservatives and making what I thought was a weak-handed case that she was this courageous gun rights activist going up against Putin and there would one day be a Second Amendment in Russia,” Solomon recounted.

“There’s never going to be a Second Amendment in Russia,” he added.

“I became very perplexed by her behavior and her efforts of going up to presidential candidates and congressional candidates,” Solomon explained. “So I started to do some reporting and I called FBI and US intelligence sources and very quickly I learned, ‘Yeah, we know that she’s somebody here as an agent of influence.’”

Solomon recalled that he wondered at the time if Butina’s intentions and identity as an agent of the Russian Federation would be exposed.

“And I thought, that’s really interesting. Are they going to tell the people she’s meeting with, and it doesn’t appear they ever did,” Solomon told Dobbs.

“I thought the role of FBI counter-intelligence was to prevent contacts from occurring that are not in the interest of the United States,” he added. “It sounds like they sat around and watched this for three or four years until it was convenient to create a headline.”

Butina, 29, pleaded not guilty Wednesday to charges of conspiracy and acting as an unregistered foreign agent for Russia and is being held without bond, Fox News reported.

GERMANS LAY OUT EARLY QAEDA TIES TO 9/11 HIJACKERS
 

mikenova shared this story .

Mr. Atta, Mr. Shehhi and Mr. Jarrah came to the United States in June 2000 and enrolled in flight schools in Florida. Mr. Atta and Mr. Shehhi are believed to have piloted the two hijacked airliners that hit the World Trade Center towers, and Mr. Jarrah flew the plane that crashed in the Pennsylvania countryside.

Mr. Kersten, the top official in Germany’s equivalent of the F.B.I., also indicated that Al Qaeda was still operating. He said a Qaeda leader identified by the American authorities as a key planner of the Sept. 11 attacks was phoned by a suicide bomber three hours before the bomber set off a blast outside a synagogue in Djerba, Tunisia, in April that killed 21 people.

Mr. Kersten said the suicide bomber had telephoned the Qaeda contact, Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, a 37-year-old Kuwaiti identified by the American authorities in June as having played an important operational role in the Sept. 11 attacks.

Mr. Kersten said the bomber, Nizar Nawar, called the Kuwaiti, who is believed to be hiding in Pakistan, shortly before Mr. Nawar pulled up outside the synagogue in a truck. The vehicle was filled with liquid propane, and Mr. Nawar ignited an explosion that killed 14 German tourists, 6 Tunisians and a Frenchman, in addition to himself.

”There are indications that this attack in Djerba was perpetrated with the blessing or approval of Al Qaeda,” he said. ”We can say Sept. 11 and Djerba with certainty were Qaeda.”

Mr. Mohammed, the Kuwaiti, may be the link between Sept. 11 and other Qaeda plots. The American authorities said intelligence reports placed him in Germany in 1999, when Mr. Atta and others lived there.

He may also be tied to the bombing of the World Trade Center in 1993, and he has been charged in a plot to blow up as many as 12 American jetliners over the Pacific in 1995. The American authorities said Mr. Mohammed might be a relative of Ramzi Ahmed Yousef, the leader of the group that carried out the 1993 bombing.

In the interview in Wiesbaden, Mr. Kersten acknowledged that substantial amounts of the planning for the Sept. 11 attacks had occurred in Germany. But he said the authorities now had evidence that the plot originated with top Qaeda leaders in Afghanistan.

”We know that the initial decision to carry out a terrorist act came from Afghanistan,” he said, ”more specifically, from the top Qaeda leadership. We believe, too, that there were then further phases when the plans were made more precise, not only in Germany, and involving many other people.”

Mr. Kersten did not identify any new suspects or specify how many other people might have been involved. French antiterrorism officials said in interviews last month that the Sept. 11 plotters were probably assisted by many other people in Europe and the United States, though few arrests have been made.

The investigator also said Al Qaeda was planning new attacks, though he said the authorities knew of no specific plots.

”The threat still exists, and it is as great as before,” he said. ”There is no decline in action, and there are indications of new plans. Al Qaeda is not defeated, maybe weakened.”

Mr. Kersten also shed light on a crucial planning meeting for Sept. 11 that was held in January 2000 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. American intelligence officials learned of the meeting before it took place, and Malaysian security agents monitored it at their request.

Mr. Kersten said there were new indications that Mr. Shibh, one of the suspected Hamburg plotters, had attended that meeting. He declined to describe the evidence, but said it went beyond a photograph that has surfaced of an attendee whom some people have identified as Mr. Shibh.

”There are indications that Ramzi bin al-Shibh was in Kuala Lumpur for the meeting,” he said.

Mr. Shibh’s presence would connect the Hamburg group to two other hijackers, Khalid al-Midhar and Nawaq Alhazmi, who have been identified positively as having taken part in the Kuala Lumpur meeting.

Mr. Midhar and Mr. Alhazmi were on the hijacked aircraft that crashed into the Pentagon. They had entered the United States a few days after the Kuala Lumpur meeting through Los Angeles, unlike the members of the Hamburg group, who flew into East Coast cities.

HAMBURG, Germany — On May 22, 2000, Mounir El Motassadeq boarded a plane for Istanbul. His goal: Afghanistan, where he intended to seek training in an al Qaeda camp.

A few months earlier, friends of his including Mohamed Atta underwent similar training, and now it was the young Moroccan’s turn. As he went through the Hamburg airport passport control, a border guard typed Mr. Motassadeq’s passport number into the “Inpol” police computer. A message flashed: “No arrest warrant. Person is under observation for membership…

Kazakh Olympic Figure Skater Killed In Stabbing Attack

ALMATY, Kazakhstan — Kazakh figure skater Denis Ten has died of injuries after he was stabbed by unknown assailants.

Health Ministry officials told RFE/RL that Ten died in an Almaty hospital, to which he had been taken with stab wounds on July 19.

Almaty police say that preliminary investigations revealed that Ten was stabbed after he confronted two unknown men as they were trying to steal the mirrors from his car.

He was reportedly stabbed in the lower torso.

“He was taken to the emergency room,” chief doctor Erzhan Kuttykozhin said. “He was operated on for more than two hours. Doctors did everything possible, but vital organs were compromised.”

Ten, who turned 25 last week, was a bronze medalist at the Sochi Olympics in 2014, and won bronze and silver at the world championships in 2013 and 2015.

He was the first Kazakh skater ever to win an Olympic medal.

The International Skating Union (ISU) issued a statement saying it was “deeply saddened” by the news.

Kazakh Sports and Culture Minister Arystanbek Mukhamediuly called Ten’s death “terrible and unjust.”

Kazakh Olympic Committee President Timur Kulibayev said in a statement that “today is truly a dark day for all of us who knew and loved this young figure skater and were inspired by his talent and creativity.”

“I saw him in Sochi,” Russian speed skater Aleksandr Kibalko said. “I was rooting for my former countryman, since I was born in Kazakhstan myself. This is a huge tragedy for the sports world, for figure skating in particular.”

Ten trained in Moscow and in the United States. He skated at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, where he finished 11th. Dogged by injuries, he finished 27th earlier this year at the Olympics in South Korea.
