WASHINGTON, D.C./KABUL – United States national security officials are criticizing President Donald Trump for talking on the phone with Taliban leaders mentioned on the Pentagon’s secret “kill or capture” list. Officials considered the president’s deed an “unprecedented breach of protocol”, according to the Daily Beast. “It’s ground-shaking that the president spoke to individuals on a target list,” a senior Defense Department official said, cited by the Daily Beast, adding, “It was a big give from our side, towards an adversary that traditionally has never held up their side of the bargain in numerous other attempts towards de-escalation and peace.

NEW FINDINGS: Boeing 737’s Software Pushed Doomed Ethiopian Plane’s Nose Down Four Times Before Crash

Published 2020-03-11 08:00:24 by Drago Bosnic in World, Anglo-5, Ethiopia, Headline-News, United-States

ADDIS ABABA – Ethiopian investigators released an interim report on the deadly March 10, 2019 crash of an Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 737 MAX 8, confirming that a faulty sensor reading and the automatic activation of an anti-stall system were to blame, and saying that Boeing had failed to provide sufficient training to pilots. According to the report, two sensors meant to indicate the plane’s angle relative to the ground showed faulty readings which deviated by 59 degrees, with this causing the activation of the Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System (MCAS), an anti-stall system embedded into the 737 MAX 8’s flight control… Continue ->

Quoting ‘Church Father’ Tertullian: “Do you not know you are each an Eve? The sentence of God on… Continue ->
