M.N.: The “Skripal story”, retold nicely in this review by “Sandeep Dikshit”, offers more puzzling questions than the reliable answers or even assumptions or conjectures. 

I feel more and more convinced that Skripal is one of the important “nerve centers” of the current conspiracy against the US and the “West”, as I shared these thoughts earlier. It looks like he was able to establish the very close, controlling ties with Russian and consequently, the global organised crime communities during his , as I suspect, staged imprisonment. This is the historical tradition on the part of the Soviet and the Russian Secret Services of using “the closely related criminal element” for their own historical and political purposes.

Supposedly, this “Operation Skripal”, the goal of which apparently, was the deep penetration and control of the Western power structures and Intelligence Services,  might have been a part of the possible larger “left-wing, pro-communist plot” to restore the Soviet power and the Soviet Union. (See also Colonel Kvachkov.) 

The recent waves of the “Performance Crimes”, including the yesterday, 10.27.18 events, bear the strong marks of the association with the Organised Crime, with the specific (stylistic) twist of the professional coordination by the experienced military intelligence officer. 

I think humbly, my dear friends, as I mentioned earlier, that the very careful and in-depth investigation of Skripal and all his connections might hold the keys to the understanding the underlying forces behind the recent events.

Sandeep Dikshit

THE title itself should make the book fly off the bookshelves at airports and malls where attention spans are lower. Its author Mark Urban is a serial author with a nose for the topics that will sell like hot cakes at precisely such places. Hitting the stands within six months of poisoning, one might wonder at the quality between the covers. But in keeping with his honesty of acknowledgement, which runs through the book, Urban discloses that he had met Sergei Skripal a few times as a subject matter for a book on East-West espionage after the Cold War. His poisoning converted that raw material and a bit more into a book.

Sergei Skripal’s name never rang a bell during the eight years he lived in London, unlike, say, Oleg Kalugin (still living) or Alexander Litvinenko (assassinated), who were deemed important enough to have been tried in absentia in Moscow. Despite his two foreign postings, Skripal was nowhere in hierarchy and access, as compared to fellow defectors Oleg Gordievsky (KGB chief in London) and Vasili Mitrokhin, the librarian of KGB’s foreign intelligence service.

Yet, Skripal’s case has created waves than the cumulative murmurings after the poisoning of Litvinenko and Gordievsky. It is this knot that Urban tries to explore and unravel. An understandable suspicion about books of this nature and originating from London is that these could be inspired by operatives of Vauxhall Cross, the gleaming MI-6 headquarters. It is not unknown.But the rendering here is open ended. There are no conclusions in the book that intelligence agencies so covet. For, the Skripal case is far from over: a secret report lies unopened in the Geneva vaults of the Organisation for Prevention of Chemical Weapons; a subsequent death of two vagabonds has opened a new line of inquiry; and, there could be more revelations, if and when Skripal or his daughter can recall the turn of events on that day.

By mid-1970s, Skripal was an operative of the Soviet Special Forces. The story jumps from his uneventful years in the Soviet Union to the first overseas posting in Malta (1984-89) where both, his boss Burlatov and he were on sale. On his second posting to Madrid (1993-96), MI6 enrolled him after he rolled out the Russian military intelligence’s (GRU) organisational chart.Back in Moscow, he made two deliveries of books containing notes in secret ink till he was passed over for promotion to Major-General and retired at 48 in 1999. This was a time for troubles in Russia when corporate, personal and espionage interests blended and Skripal, by his admission, began freelancing with his former contacts.

His luck ran out when his former Malta boss Burlatov was arrested and then murdered in prison. In 2004, Skripal was next, transferred to Lefortovo prison with its quaint rules and after conviction, sent to the harsher Potma prison where temperatures sank to -30º.

So, who outed Skripal and Burlatov? Skripal believes it was a Spanish double agent who Madrid exposed. But others say Russians knew at the time when as a pensioner he would ask leading questions from his serving colleagues.

Then Ghost Stories happened. The US uncovered a network of deep penetration Russian agents, including the glamorous Anna Chapman, and prompt Moscow ownership of their operations set the stage for a swap of spies. Skripal was freed in 2010 and opted to stay in London where the MI6 made him comfortable.

After eight uneventful years, he and his daughter began frothing from the mouth while sitting on a bench in a park in Salisbury. Details unravelled in a slow pirouette and when it was established that a deadly chemical had been used, 150 Russian diplomats were expelled. Significantly, the enthusiasm to expel was confined to the US, the UK and Ukraine — three countries with an existentialist angst against Russia — which accounted for two-thirds of the expulsions.

This has triggered a minority view that the poisoning was a false flag operation — an operation where the home side creates an incident to implicate the opposing side. Why would Putin risk western outrage barely weeks before he was to be re-elected as President? Then there is evidence of how the rabidly anti-Russia Boris Johnson shaped the narrative with outlandish claims.

Urban, however, dismisses these conjectures as part of a Russian tactic of releasing counter theories. His counter is that Putin wanted a 70/70 result — get 70 per cent of the vote from a 70 per cent overall voter turnout. Russophobia was guaranteed to get the voter out. There is also Putin’s alleged fetish for assassinations, such as the murder of a retired general fiercely critical of Yeltsin in 1999 that Skripal believes helped him become Prime Minister after a couple of months.

There is also the suggestion that Skripal was living up to the maxim that that intelligence officers never retire and he seemed to be playing the field again, thus making him a target. Putin may also have ordered the hit to deter anyone from spying for Britain again.

While the media speculated, British investigations identified the chemical as Novichok A. But that claim got muddied after the Russian foreign minister claimed that it was BZ, manufactured by NATO countries.

There is no unimpeachable argument on either side. But perhaps the endgame to ensure Russia’s isolation by exploiting the Skripal affair was achieved. The uproar ensured that Donald Trump couldn’t get Russia into G 7 and CAATSA, an anti Russia-Iran-North Korea law, that is also causing India much anguish, had a smooth sailing in the American Congress.

Yelling ‘all Jews must die,’ gunman kills 8 at Pittsburgh synagogue
 

mikenova shared this story .

Eight people have been confirmed dead and at least six were injured in a shooting on Saturday at a synagogue in Pittsburgh, according to CBS Pittsburgh.

The gunman is said to have yelled “All Jews must die” as he entered the Tree of Life Synagogue, a Conservative congregation in the city and began firing during a baby naming ceremony, local media reported. He engaged in a shootout with responding police officers and barricaded himself inside the building before surrendering. He is said to be injured, and reportedly crawled toward police.

KDKA-TV, a local news stations, said its sources identified the suspect as Robert Bowers, a white male in his 40s. A law enforcement official later confirmed the suspect’s identity to the Associated Press, but could not elaborate further.

Bowers is said to have written anti-Semitic and anti-immigrant conspiracies on Gab, an alt-right social network similar to Twitter. His last reported message read: “HIAS likes to bring invaders to kill our people. I can’t sit by and watch my people get slaughtered. Screw your optics, I’m going in.”

HIAS, formerly Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, is an American-Jewish nonprofit organization that provides humanitarian aid to refugees and immigrants.

Bowers’ Gab bio read: “Jews are the children of Satan.” The profile has since been taken down.

At least six people were injured in the shooting, among them four police officers, according to authorities.

Wendell Hissrich, the Pittsburgh public safety director, said, “It is a very horrific crime scene. It was one of the worst that I’ve seen. It is very bad.”

The synagogue is located at the corner of Wilkins and Shady Avenues in the Squirrel Hill neighborhood, about 10 minutes from downtown Pittsburgh. The neighborhood is heavily Jewish.

Synagogues hold weekly religious services for congregants and visitors on Saturdays, the Jewish day of the Sabbath. Service was in session at the time of the shooting at the synagogue on Saturday morning at approximately 10:00 am local time. Congregants were hosting a baby naming ceremony at the time, according to reports.

Michael Eisenberg, a former president of the Tree of Life Synagogue, told KDKA that there were approximately 50 people inside the synagogue at the time of the shooting.

“At 9:45 there were three simultaneous congregations’ services that were being held,” he told the news station. “In the main part of the building, The Tree of Life has a service that has about 40 people in it. Just below that there is a basement area where New Life congregation would have been having their Shabbat service. There would have been 30-40 people. Just adjacent to Tree of Light’s service area, a congregation was in the rabbi study room and they would have had approximately 15 people in there.”

CBS Pittsburgh reported that police received several calls from people inside the synagogue as the shooting unfolded.

Police officers, SWAT teams, firefighters, and ambulance services responded to the attack.

“There is an active shooter in the area of Wilkins and Shady. Avoid the area,” the Pittsburgh Public Safety Department wrote in a tweet Saturday as the shooting began.

Jeff Finkelstein of the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh told WPXI that organization’s security officer has notified all JCC synagogues and that they are on modified lockdown.

Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf called the shooting an “absolute tragedy.”

“We must all pray and hope for no more loss of life,” Wolf said. “But we have been saying “this one is too many” for far too long. Dangerous weapons are putting our citizens in harm’s way.”

Yizhar Hess, the executive director and CEO of the Conservative Movement in Israel, known as Masorti, said in a statement Saturday that “it is hard to imagine the hatred that leads someone to open fire in a synagogue.”

Israeli President Reuven Rivlin said in a statement: “Our thoughts and prayers are with those affected by the events in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. We are thinking of ‘our brothers and sisters, the whole house of Israel, in this time of trouble’, as we say in the morning prayers. We are thinking of the families of those who were murdered and praying for the quick recovery of those who were injured. I am sure that the law enforcement agencies and the legal authorities in the US will investigate this horrific event thoroughly and that justice will be served on the despicable murderer.”

Israeli Minister of Diaspora Affairs Naftali Bennett said: “The State of Israel and the Israeli Government are shocked and pained to receive the reports of the terrible attack on the Jewish community in Pittsburgh.”

“We are following the news with concern, and I have instructed the Ministry of Diaspora Affairs to prepare to assist the community in every possible way. Our hearts go out to the families of those killed and injured. May the memory of the murdered be blessed,” he said.

US President Donald Trump tweeted that the attack was “far more devastating than originally thought.”

He also spoke to reporters later Saturday at Andrews Air Force Base before traveling to Indianapolis, saying the violence “has to stop.”

Trump also said the outcome might have been different if the synagogue “had some kind of protection” from an armed guard and suggested that might be a good idea for all churches and synagogues.

He also said such shooters should receive the death penalty and “suffer the ultimate price.”

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders tweeted: “Saddened and appalled by the cowardly act of evil committed at Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh. We stand in total solidarity with the victims and all of the Jewish community against bigotry and hate.”

Pittsburgh-based refugee agency attributes program closure to Trump policies
 

mikenova shared this story .

One of Pittsburgh’s refugee assistance programs is shutting down its services because of the dwindling number of refugees being resettled in the United States.

The Sharpsburg-based Northern Area Multi Service Center (NAMS) will close its Community Assistance and Refugee Resettlement program in January. The program has been operating for seven years. Other NAMS community services will continue to operate.

“After many successful years as a provider of refugee resettlement, case management, and employment services, the … program will begin the process of transitioning its responsibilities to other regional partner agencies,” a Sept. 28 NAMS letter to partner agencies read.

At its peak two years ago, NAMS resettled 269 refugees. This year it resettled 69.

“Honestly it came down to it was no longer sustainable based on reduced numbers of arrivals over the course of last few years,” said Kurt Meier, chief operating officer of NAMS. “Between the realized reduction of arrivals, on top of projects for the upcoming year, we made the decision to end the program.”

The two remaining refugee resettlement agencies in Pittsburgh are Jewish Family and Community Services (JFCS), based in Squirrel Hill, and the Acculturation for Justice, Access and Peace Outreach (AJAPO), based in the Hill District.

NAMS will complete its last two refugee resettlement cases by November, and the organization is transferring 22 employment program cases to JFCS.

For the past decade, the U.S. Department of State refugee admissions figures have hovered between 70,000 and 85,000, with the exception of the 2016 peak of 110,000. This year, the Trump administration admitted 45,000.

In a September announcement, the administration said it planned to cap admissions at 30,000 next year, the lowest ever in the U.S. refugee program’s history.

The number of refugees resettled in Allegheny County has declined as a result, according to figures from the Pennsylvania Refugee Resettlement Program.

Dwindling refugee arrivalsA resettlement program in Allegheny County will close at the end of the year because of the decline in refugee arrivals.Refugee resettlement numbers in Allegheny County and statewide since 2008, and the top originating countries of the majority of refugees, by fiscal year*

*Top countries of origin represented in Allegheny County. Fiscal year: October to SeptemberSource: Pennsylvania Refugee Resettlement Program

For this fiscal year, which ran from October 2017 through September, just 202 refugees have been resettled in the county — down from 448 in 2016-2017, and 641 in 2015-2016.

That’s well below what resettlement agencies in Allegheny County estimated for the year, Mr. Meier said.

NAMS had expected to resettle 175 refugees by year’s end. Jewish Family and Children’s Services and AJAPO expected 148 and 145 respectively.

In recent years, the majority of refugees resettled in Allegheny County have come from Bhutan, where the government employed ethnic-cleansing policies, as well as warn-torn Iraq and the Democratic Republic of Congo.

NAMS laid off eight employees, two of whom were able to transfer to other area refugee programs.

JFCS and AJAPO will absorb clients from the NAMS program closure.

“I think this is an opportunity for us to strengthen our services on the ground,” said AJAPO executive director Yinka Aganga-Williams about the slowdown in refugee arrivals.

AJAPO resettled roughly 70 refugees this year, and like JFCS, which resettled 71, also helps with immigration services, employment and cultural orientation.

The United Nations estimates 65 million refugees are displaced across the globe.

Amazon’s denials of the report and Apple sent a letter to Congress saying the report was without merit.
Apple earlier issued a lengthy, stern response on its company blog, saying in part:
“Apple has never found malicious chips in our servers. … Finally, in response to questions we have received from other news organizations since Businessweek published its story, we are not under any kind of gag order or other confidentiality obligations.”

M.N.: The “Chinese Mask” Unmasked:

“This did not happen. There’s no truth to this.” – Apple’s Tim Cook demands Chinese spy chip story to be retracted by Bloomberg

M.N.: This is the source of the Counterintelligence errors: the blatant politicization, which is quite evident in this case, it seems. We believe what our higher-ups  want or signal to us to believe, consciously and unconsciously, overtly and covertly. Can we have some explanation of this phenomenon? The problem is that it shifts the perceptions of preferences and priorities, and thus affects the process of identifying the adversary and their operations correctly. 

For example, where is the “ISIS” and the “100 Years Battle with it” now? Gone with the wind and with the winds, just a vague memory. Why was it not assessed correctly? Why was not assessed correctly the Soviet “Survivability Index” some years ago? 

Apple CEO Tim Cook has upped the ante in its denial of an investigative report claiming a Chinese spy chip was embedded into the tech giant’s servers, telling BuzzFeed News that Bloomberg must retract the story–“This did not happen. There’s no truth to this.”

Apple’s Tim Cook demands Chinese spy chip story to be retracted by Bloomberg

Apple reveals massive new iPhone and Apple watch
Apple has finally unveiled its new iPhone XS Max along with a new Apple Watch.
Apple CEO Tim Cook has upped the ante in its denial of an investigative report claiming a Chinese spy chip was embedded into the tech giant’s servers, telling BuzzFeed News that Bloomberg must retract the story–“This did not happen. There’s no truth to this.”
“I was involved in our response to this story from the beginning,” Cook said according to Buzzfeed. “I personally talked to the Bloomberg reporters along with Bruce Sewell who was then our general counsel. We were very clear with them that this did not happen, and answered all their questions. … Each time they brought this up to us, the story changed and each time we investigated we found nothing.”

“There is no truth in their story about Apple,” Cook added in the interview. “They need to do that right thing and retract it.”
450 AMAZON EMPLOYEES PROTEST FACIAL RECOGNITION SOFTWARE BEING SOLD TO POLICE
Bloomberg issued a statement to Buzzfeed, saying it stands by its reporting, which included spending more than a year on the story and more than 100 interviews.
“Seventeen individual sources, including government officials and insiders at the companies, confirmed the manipulation of hardware and other elements of the attacks,” the spokesman told the news organization. “We also published three companies’ full statements, as well as a statement from China’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs. We stand by our story and are confident in our reporting and sources.”
Bloomberg Businessweek in its October story alleged that data center hardware used by Apple and Amazon Web Services, provided by server company Super Micro, was under surveillance by the Chinese government.
Amazon denied that its hardware had been compromised, the Department of Homeland Security said it had “no reason to doubt” Apple and Amazon’s denials of the report and Apple sent a letter to Congress saying the report was without merit.
Apple earlier issued a lengthy, stern response on its company blog, saying in part:
“Apple has never found malicious chips in our servers. … Finally, in response to questions we have received from other news organizations since Businessweek published its story, we are not under any kind of gag order or other confidentiality obligations.”

Настоящее Время: Вице-мэра Сочи арестовали по обвинению в коррупции

Басманный суд Москвы арестовал до 15 декабря первого вице-мэра Сочи Сергея Юрина. Его обвиняют в получении в качестве взятки двух квартир, за которые он выдал разрешение на строительство в городе. Вместе с Юриным на два месяца арестованы замдиректора департамента экономики и стратегического развития администрации Сочи Александр Иванов, бывший замначальника правового управления администрации Андрей Левентюк, и еще четыре человека. Всем им также предъявлены обвинения в получении взятки в особо крупном размере. При этом, как отмечает агентство “Интерфакс”, прокурор выступал против ареста Юрина, считая, что следствие не представило для этого достаточных обоснований. Сам вице-мэр Сочи на суде заявил, что не понимает обвинения и не имеет к квартирам, фигурирующим в деле, никакого отношения. Настоящее Время
Crime and Criminology from mikenova (8 sites): InSight Crime: Continued Obstacles Threaten Future of FARC Peace Process in Colombia

Continued Obstacles Threaten Future of FARC Peace Process in ColombiaA transitional justice system formed after the signing of a historic peace agreement with Colombia’s FARC rebels to try former fighters for crimes committed during the country’s decades-long armed conflict continues to face obstacles, further threatening the possibility of achieving lasting peace in the country.The Special Jurisdiction for Peace (Jurisdicción Especial para la Paz – JEP) was set up after the Colombian government and the now largely demobilized Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia – FARC) signed a peace agreement in 2016.SEE ALSO: Coverage of FARC PeaceThe purpose of the JEP is to “administer transitional justice and make known the crimes committed in the framework of the armed conflict before December 1, 2016,” according to the institution.Below, InSight Crime looks at three obstacles that are hindering the JEP’s ability to move the peace process forward.

1. Former FARC Fighters Continue to Commit Crimes

Under the peace agreement, only former FARC fighters who did not commit crimes after 2016 can benefit from the JEP. However, since it was established, there have been reports of high profile former guerrilla members being included in the special jurisdiction’s list.

The most emblematic case is that of Seuxis Paucis Hernández Solarte, alias “Jesús Santrich,” who was a lead negotiator in the peace talks and was set to assume a seat in congress in April 2018.

Colombian authorities arrested Santrich in early April 2018 after the United States charged him with drug trafficking crimes committed after the 2016 peace agreement, making him ineligible to face justice through the JEP.

More recently, US authorities sanctioned another former FARC fighter for his alleged ties to the drug trade following the peace agreement.

On October 18, the US Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) announcedsanctions against former FARC rebel Pedro Luis Zuleta Noscué, alias “El Inválido.” The agency alleges that Zuleta Noscué “continues to supply narcotics to criminal groups such as Colombia’s Oficina de Envigado.”

US authorities allege that Zuleta Noscué has long controlled a drug trafficking corridor in southwest Cauca department where he supported the FARC’s drug trafficking activities. Cauca had the fourth-highest number of hectares used for coca cultivation in 2017, according to illicit crop monitoring datapublished in September of this year by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC).

2. ELN Guerrillas on List of Demobilized FARC Fighters

Authorities in Colombia have in the past faced difficulties separating demobilizing FARC guerrillas with drug traffickers and other criminals trying to pass themselves off as FARC fighters in an effort to take advantage of the benefits awarded to the demobilized guerrillas as part of the peace agreement.

These problems persist today. JEP President Patricia Linares recently admitted that there are members of Colombia’s National Liberation Army (Ejército de Liberación Nacional – ELN) on the list of demobilized former FARC fighters, El Tiempo reported.

“I have information, which I myself have verified, that some of these people [ELN fighters] make up part of the Office of the High Commissioner for Peace’s lists that were prepared by the previous administration,” Linares said.

3. Tension with Colombia’s Attorney General’s Office

A new legislative proposal in Colombia has generated concerns from the JEP about their ability to adequately do their job. The proposal would limit the JEP’s access to confidential information, such as military, state, intelligence and counterintelligence operations that threaten to put the country’s national security at risk, Noticias Caracol reported.

JEP President Linares said that the legislation is “openly unconstitutional because it affects the [JEP’s] assigned transnational function.”

SEE ALSO: Colombia News and Profiles

The Attorney General’s Office and the JEP have also clashed over cases that don’t threaten national security, but rather raise questions about which institution has the authority and whether ordinary justice or transnational justice is the proper route to take. The Attorney General’s Office, for example, recently refused to hand over to the JEP information pertaining to assets seized from the FARC that could be used as part of reparations for victims of the armed conflict.

That said, relations between the two institutions appear to be improving. JEP President Linares recently met with Deputy Attorney General María Paulina Riveros. The two agreed to create a roundtable of sorts where the two entities can discuss solutions to the many issues that have stoked tensions between them, El Tiempo reported.

“The Government, Congress and Judicial Power are now paddling for the same side,” Colombia Attorney General Néstor Humberto Martínez Neira said.

The Skripal Files by Mark Urban review – the Salisbury spy’s story

He did it for the money and still loved mother Russia … a fascinating book based on conversations with Sergei SkripalIn June 2017, Mark Urban drove to Salisbury to meet a retired Russian spy. Urban – a BBC Newsnight journalist and author – was contemplating writing a book about east-west espionage after the end of the cold war. The spy was Sergei Skripal. He had kept a low profile in Britain since arriving in 2010 as part of an international spy swap. There were no signs he was engaged in active espionage. Arriving at his modest suburban home, Urban spotted a stack of jigsaw puzzles and a fiddly Airfix scale model of HMS Victory. Another model, of an English country cottage, sat on a bookshelf – a gift from the MI6 agent who, two decades earlier, had recruited Skripal in Spain.Skripal was arguably the least well known of a small group of elderly defectors from Moscow living in the UK. The most famous, Oleg Gordievsky, betrayed the KGB for ideological reasons and did enormous damage to the Soviet espionage machine. If a list existed of traitors the Kremlin might wish to kill, Gordievsky’s name was surely at the top.One wonders if Skripal would have voted for Putin, given the chanceRelated: Putin allegedly gave Skripal poisoning suspect hero’s awardContinue reading…
