Published 2019-02-27 20:45:42 by Joaquin Flores in Eurasia, Headline-News, India, Pakistan

ISLAMABAD – Indian Wing Commander Abhinandan, the pilot of an Indian attack plane that was shot down by Pakistani anti-air forces, was clearly not injured from the crash when captured by Pakistan authorities. As is evidenced in this harrowing video clip, he was brutally beaten, mistreated and almost lynched by a crowd, the Pakistani authorities appear to only light-handedly attempt to stop what was happening to the pilot. While India’s actions are rife with potential legal problems, it is nevertheless understood that the primary role of the military is to follow orders when issued. There are exceptions when a soldier… Continue ->

Originally published at William Binney, former Technical Director NSA Larry Johnson, former State CT and CIA The FBI, CIA and NSA claim that the DNC emails published by WIKILEAKS on July 26, 2016 were obtained via a Russian hack, but more than three years after the alleged “hack” no forensic evidence has been produced to support that claim. In fact, the available forensic evidence contradicts the official account that blames the leak of the DNC emails on a Russian internet “intrusion”.  The existing evidence supports an alternative explanation–the files taken from the DNC between 23 and 25May 2016 and… Continue ->

Against the background of Washington’s unwillingness to relax sanctions against Pyongyang and the DPRK’s unwillingness to make substantial concessions to the United States, experts… Continue ->
