Pentagon investigated suspected Russian directed-energy attacks on U.S. troops

 

The Pentagon has briefed top lawmakers on intelligence surrounding suspected directed-energy attacks against U.S. troops, and officials identified Russia as a likely culprit, according to two people with direct knowledge of the matter.

 

The Defense Department had been investigating the incidents, including those targeting its personnel around the world, since last year, according to four former national security officials directly involved in the probe.

 

POLITICO spoke with congressional officials who were briefed on the suspected attacks as part of their oversight duties of the Pentagon.

 

The briefings included information about injuries sustained by U.S. troops in Syria, the people said. The investigation includes one incident in Syria in the fall of 2020 in which several troops developed flu-like symptoms, two people familiar with the Pentagon probe said. 

 

The incidents of suspected directed-energy attacks by Russia on Americans abroad became so concerning that the Pentagon’s office of special operations and low-intensity conflict began investigating last year, according to two former national security officials involved in the effort. It’s unclear exactly how many troops were injured, or the extent of their injuries.

 

A spokesperson for the director of national intelligence declined to comment.

 

Directed-energy attacks on U.S. spies and diplomats are well-documented; the CIA recently set up its own task force to look into the issue. But the recent Pentagon effort to look into similar incidents affecting U.S. troops has not previously been reported.

Navalny signals end to prison hunger strike after getting access to civilian doctors

 

Jailed Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny is ending his hunger strike after 24 days, he said on Instagram on Friday, following the advice of his doctors, who warned he could soon die.

Navalny, who is serving a sentence of just over 2½ years, began his hunger strike as a demand to see independent medical specialists of his choosing at his expense.

 

After being moved to a prison hospital at a penal colony last weekend, Navalny was examined at a civilian hospital Tuesday. In a letter from five physicians affiliated with Navalny, published by Russia’s independent Mediazona news outlet, they urged him to consider that medical care as sufficient for ending the hunger strike.

 

“Thanks to the tremendous support of good people all over the country and all over the world, we have made tremendous progress,” said Navalny’s Instagram post. He does not have access to the account, but his lawyers are in regular contact with him, and posts are made by his allies.

 

“Two months ago, they only laughed at my requests for medical help and wouldn’t give me any medication,” the post continued. “A month ago, I was laughed in the face at phrases like, ‘Can I find out my diagnosis?” and ‘Can I see my own medical records?’ Thank you — now I’ve been examined twice by a panel of civilian doctors.”

Yes, it can happen to any American, when they are being investigated for criminal wrongdoing, with enough evidence to convince a judge for a warrant.  All Rudy's past positions do not exempt him from the law.

Yes.  It can.  

 

Your problem, Junior, is that you thought it could happen to any American except your class.

One America News Network (OANN) correspondent Jack Posobiec tweeted 28 times over a span of ten months links to a website the U.S. government says is backed by Russian intelligence.

 

Posobiec repeatedly linked on Twitter to the obscure website “SouthFront,” which the U.S. Department of the Treasury named on April 15 in a statement explaining its enactment of sanctions on the Russian government, Hatewatch found. SouthFront, in turn, made posts promoting Posobiec. Southfront also cited Posobiec’s tweets in their posts, as they did in February when announcing that Senate Republicans acquitted President Trump on charges related to his role in the Jan. 6 insurrection. Posobiec has used Twitter to promote Russian intelligence-backed propaganda before, as when he served as a central figure in spreading a hack of Emmanuel Macron’s emails in May 2017, as Hatewatch has previously reported.

 

The government described the website Posobiec shared dozens of times as being operated by Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB) in an attempt to appeal to Western audiences:

 

Quote

SouthFront is an online disinformation site registered in Russia that receives taskings from the FSB. It attempts to appeal to military enthusiasts, veterans, and conspiracy theorists, all while going to great lengths to hide its connections to Russian intelligence. In the aftermath of the 2020 U.S. presidential election, SouthFront sought to promote perceptions of voter fraud by publishing content alleging that such activity took place during the 2020 U.S. presidential election cycle.

 

Posobiec shared to Twitter the 28 links to SouthFront from November 2019 to August 2020, all while working for the low-standard news network OANN, Hatewatch found. The OANN correspondent shared SouthFront links related to such subjects as Iran, Syria, Libya and China. (The web traffic analysis company Alexa suggests that SouthFront.org pulls most of its traffic from posts about Syria and its surrounding region.) Posobiec also shared SouthFront links focused on the COVID-19 pandemic and at least one post on the site that mocked concerns about Russian disinformation. Posobiec frequently deletes posts with disinformation or hateful language from Twitter after they have gone viral, as he did in 2017 after promoting on that site a neo-fascist Polish political movement that in the 1930s bombed Jewish homes.

The thing that I find intriguing is that Trump issued pardons for many people closely associated with him, but Rudy. I still wonder why. 

 

Rudy is the fall guy, especially after that hilarious press conference in front of the lawn service place. Plus Trump doesn't like people who sweat, and the sweat was pouring off of Rudy that day.

So i'm guessing pushing enemy propaganda is no longer an arresting offense for a public official who swore an oath of allegiance to his constitution and country?

**** all this finger pointing, it is useless. "OooOoo look what HE did! Here's PRooF! And MoRe ProOof! And Even MoRe!"
Big ****ing deal. Do something with the proof. Do ANYTHING with the proof. ANYTHING AT ALL.
All this does is allow them to keep doing exactly what everyone knows they are doing.

Arrest Ron Johnson. ARREST HIM. He has encouraged insurrection, he has interfered in investigations into the deadly insurrection, he is a mouthpiece and front for enemy activity. None of it is debatable. NONE OF IT. He has done it ON the ****ing RECORD.
Haul his ass down the Capitol steps in a perp walk for the ****ing ages. 

****ing traitors. We used to do something about them. Now we just pretend we're doing something. 

 

Check that. We don't even do that.

I'll believe it when i see it.
I also believe that when the truth does come out, Trump says "So what" and his ****ing mob agrees.

Unfortunately I think this is the most likely result.

 

The memo will say Barr directly and preemptively ordered them not to prosecute Trump. Trump will say "Yes, because he knew it was an illegal witch hunt!" Trump's cult members will lap it up and repeat that ad nauseam.

 

Dems will hem and haw about it for a brief while. Media will cover it for a brief while. Then it will simply be dropped.

Not sure how much he can do after the fact. I suppose Congress could haul Barr's ass up and question him again, but that probably won't go anywhere. 

 

In the past, and with most administrations, something like this would have likely caused outrage all over. But now the Trump loyalists just basically shrug at everything he does or has done.
