    Officials Have Yet to See Intelligence Gained in Deadly Yemen Raid, Report Says Feliz Solomon,Time 9 hours ago U.S. officials claim that no significant intelligence has yet been revealed after a Special Forces raid in Yemen last month that turned into a chaotic firefight, taking the life of one Navy SEAL and possibly dozens of civilians, including children. The botched mission on Jan. 29, authorized by President Donald Trump just days after his inauguration, had been in the works for months, but former President Barack Obama declined to carry it out under his term, NBC News reports. White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer told reporters in early February that the U.S. had acquired an “unbelievable amount of intelligence that will prevent the potential deaths or attacks on American soil.” An NBC News exclusive report, however, said that while the White House and the Pentagon have both claimed the raid was a success, several senior officials who spoke with the network have seen no evidence of valuable intelligence. Officials briefed on the matter told NBC that the mission’s aim was likely to kill or capture one or more militants associated with al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP). According to NBC, Pentagon officials have said that “actionable intelligence” was collected during the operation, but news outlets including NBC and CNN report that the agency has to date released only one video clip that later proved to be nearly a decade old and already publicly available. Officials said at the time that the video was made public to demonstrate that materials obtained during the raid were valuable. The video was quickly removed after it was found to be obsolete, and a Pentagon official said the Central Command was fully responsibility for its release. Last month, a joint force of Navy SEALS and elite forces from the United Arab Emirates reportedly came under heavy fire during the mission. Subsequent reports suggested that militants used civilians as human shields when the U.S.-led troops fired back, and that some women then took up arms and joined the fight. Chief Petty Officer William “Ryan” Owens of SEAL Team 6, died during the raid, and the Pentagon acknowledged that several civilians were likely killed in the crossfire. A report by the Bureau of Investigative Journalism said the casualties totaled 25, including nine children, a number that has not been disputed by the Pentagon. According to USA Today, three military probes are now underway to address some of the questions surrounding the raid; Owens’ death, civilian casualties and the loss of a valuable Osprey aircraft. See, this is the kind of crap your boy, Donaldof Trumpler does best......at nothing.

    Today, Wikimedia community members in Iraq, the Wikimedia Foundation, and Asiacell, one of Iraq’s largest mobile operators, announced a new partnership to provide access to Wikipedia free of mobile data charges to Asiacell’s nearly 12 million subscribers in Iraq. The partnership was announced today at a press event hosted by Ooredoo during Mobile World Congress 2017. The partnership, developed in large part by Iraqi volunteer editor and Asiacell employee, Sarmad Saeed Yaseen, marks the first Wikipedia Zero program in Iraq. The program, overseen by the nonprofit Wikimedia Foundation, addresses one of the greatest barriers to internet access globally: affordability. In a recent phone survey in Iraq led by the Wikimedia Foundation, roughly 80% of surveyed participants reported that mobile data costs limited their use of the internet. About 33% of participants also reported rarely or never being able to find online content in their preferred language. Through the Wikipedia Zero program, mobile data fees are waived for subscribers of participating mobile operators so that they may read and edit Wikipedia without using any of their mobile data. Sarmad, who is part of a community of local volunteer Wikipedia editors in Iraq, started the partnership to extend access to knowledge in his home country of Iraq. Together, he and his wife, Ravan Jaafar Altaie, have been active editors (or Wikipedians) since 2008. “I’ve always believed that it is better to light a candle than curse the darkness, so I decided to volunteer in Wikipedia to provide knowledge for free to my people in their own language,” said Sarmad Saeed Yaseen. “When I was first introduced to Wikipedia Zero, I felt right away that this could be the best thing ever to share free knowledge in my country and encourage the people of Iraq to contribute knowledge and share this with the world on Wikipedia.” Source: Iraq-BusinessNews.com.

    U.S. and coalition military forces continued to attack the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria on Sunday, Combined Joint Task Force Operation Inherent Resolve officials reported yesterday. Officials reported details of the latest strikes, noting that assessments of results are based on initial reports. Strikes in Syria Coalition military forces conducted 14 strikes consisting of 21 engagements in Syria: Near Dayr Az Zawr, four strikes destroyed five wellheads and an oil manifold. Near Palmyra, two strikes destroyed six pumpjacks. Near Raqqa, eight strikes engaged five ISIS tactical units and an ISIS staging area and destroyed four fighting positions, two ammo caches, a mortar system, a vehicle, a chemical weapons facility and an ISIS headquarters. Strikes in Iraq Coalition military forces conducted 10 strikes consisting of 80 engagements in Iraq, coordinated with and in support of Iraq’s government: Near Kirkuk, two strikes engaged two ISIS tactical units, destroyed four ISIS-held buildings and damaged a tunnel. Near Mosul, five strikes engaged four ISIS tactical units and two ISIS staging areas; destroyed eight fighting positions, six mortar systems, five vehicles, three vehicle bombs, two roadblocks, two ISIS-held buildings, two rocket-propelled grenade systems, two vehicle bomb facilities, two weapons caches, a tactical vehicle, a sniper position, a supply cache, a bulldozer and a tunnel entrance; damaged nine supply routes and a front-end loader; and suppressed 18 mortar teams and five ISIS tactical units. Near Rawah, a strike destroyed a weapons cache and a supply cache. Near Sinjar, two strikes engaged an ISIS tactical unit and destroyed eight tactical vehicles and two weapons storage facilities. Part of Operation Inherent Resolve These strikes were conducted as part of Operation Inherent Resolve, the operation to destroy ISIS in Iraq and Syria. The destruction of ISIS targets in Iraq and Syria also further limits the group’s ability to project terror and conduct external operations throughout the region and the rest of the world, task force officials said. The list above contains all strikes conducted by fighter, attack, bomber, rotary-wing or remotely piloted aircraft; rocket-propelled artillery; and some ground-based tactical artillery when fired on planned targets, officials noted. Ground-based artillery fired in counterfire or in fire support to maneuver roles is not classified as a strike, they added. A strike, as defined by the coalition, refers to one or more kinetic engagements that occur in roughly the same geographic location to produce a single or cumulative effect. For example, task force officials explained, a single aircraft delivering a single weapon against a lone ISIS vehicle is one strike, but so is multiple aircraft delivering dozens of weapons against a group of ISIS-held buildings and weapon systems in a compound, having the cumulative effect of making that facility harder or impossible to use. Strike assessments are based on initial reports and may be refined, officials said. The task force does not report the number or type of aircraft employed in a strike, the number of munitions dropped in each strike, or the number of individual munition impact points against a target.

    By Mustafa Saadoun for Al Monitor. Any views expressed here are those of the author, and do not necessarily reflect the views of Iraq Business News.* Ibtisam al-Hilali, a member of parliament for the Karbala governorate and member of the State of Law Coalition, led by Nouri al-Maliki, stated Feb. 12 that the governorate’s provincial council intends to pass a bill banning unveiled women from entering the holy city of Karbala. While banners on the streets of Iraq’s*religious cities*such as Karbala, Najaf and Khadimiya*calling on women to wear the*headscarf are*a normal sight, this is the first time official figures and parliamentarians try to introduce a*bill in this regard. Karbala is home to the shrines of the third Shiite Imam*Hussein bin*Ali*and his half*brother Abbas. The citizens of Karbala are mostly Shiites, and each year the city hosts*millions of pilgrims who visit the shrines of the two imams. A parliamentary source*who spoke on condition of anonymity*told Al-Monitor, “Many blocs affiliated with Islamic parties are now trying to collect signatures to pass a bill that would ban unveiled women from religious areas. However, this was immediately rejected by parliamentarians, but the blocs are still trying to pursue their efforts to this effect.” These endeavors might not be welcomed by*the Iraqi community, which is governed according to the*Iraqi Constitution instead of Sharia. Yet,*it appears that some Islamic groups and parties are trying*to impose Sharia on the different aspects of civil life. This might suggest the possibility of an imminent conflict between Islamic extremists and civilians seeking to live in*a nonreligious state. Sarwa Abdel Wahed, a parliamentarian for the Movement for Change, told Alqurtas News that some parties are seeking*to impose political agendas and settle scores by trying to pass a law banning unveiled women from entering religious cities.

    House Intel chair dismisses Trump-Russia link: 'There's nothing there' The head of the House Intelligence Committee said Monday that federal intelligence officials have provided no information that points to a connection between Russian officials and anyone who worked for President Trump's campaign, and warned against a "witch hunt," against private citizens. "There's nothing there," Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., told reporters at a press conference he called to update the media on the probe. "As of right now, I don't have any evidence of any phone calls. The way it sounds to me is that it's been looked into, and there is no evidence of anything there." click for more

    MTBE is a lunatic. He regurgitates the liberal media fake news. He has never given proof, not once. No proof Americans quit listening. Blah, Blah, Blah Trump will get GDP over 3%, unemployment down, wages up and the economy rolling and this stooge will still be on the sidelines ranting about impeachment.

    LOL....Do I look angry....man....I having a blast !! So I don't know what you are talking about angry squirming.... Good for you if you are killing it at the stock market....that is awesome and I congratulate you on your success......It doesn't make any difference on my perspective about your man, Donaldof Trumpler..... He needs to be removed from the Oval Office...hopefully he will be impeached... There are reasons why no one wants to work for or with Donaldof....is not that they are not qualified...is that they have a conscience...and morals and standards. Donaldof doesn't. Are you going to say that this is Fake News too ? Politics Navy secretary nominee Philip Bilden withdraws (CNN)President Trump's nominee for secretary of the Navy, Philip Bilden, has withdrawn his name from consideration, Bilden and Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis said Sunday in statements. Both Bilden's and Mattis' statements said Bilden's business interests created complications. He recently retired from a private equity investment management firm, according to a White House statement. "After an extensive review process," Bilden said, "I have determined that I will not be able to satisfy the Office of Government Ethics requirements without undue disruption and materially adverse divestment of my family's private financial interests." Mattis said: "This was a personal decision driven by privacy concerns and significant challenges he faced in separating himself from his business interests."

    Now...where are you coming from with the idea that I am demanding any of those absurd things you are talking about?.... Are you trying to do the same things Donny is doing?....suppressing the people?.... I am not doing any of it. I am not forcing anyone to think like me. I am simply expressing my opinion. And if my opinion is that Donaldof can't be in the Oval Office, then so be it, others think the opposite.... and then we have this wonderful clash of thoughts and beliefs. So if you don't like it, oh well...tough crap for you. By the way....good for you that you have a lot of cash. I never said I am a rich person like you say you are.....I have said that I don't have the financial worries and constraints other folks have. And like you, I have my "grubstake" at Iraq, the difference between yours and mine is that my "grubstake" was bloodily earned, yours, I doubt it.
