US #Senate set to ban deals with #Russia|n arms exporter over #Syria — RT | Homeland security | Scoop.it

The amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act proposed by Senator John Cornyn bars the Pentagon from spending money in 2013 on contracts with Rosoboronexport, including the purchase of more helicopters to be used in Afghanistan.
Yet the amendment clearly states that the ban can be overturned if “the Secretary of Defense determines that such a waiver is in the national security interests of the United States with respect to the capacity of the Afghan National Security Forces.”
In the past, the US has purchased helicopters from Rosoboronexport for the Afghan security forces, as part of a $367.5 million deal with the US signed in May 2011 for the delivery of 21 Mi-17s helicopters.
Rosoboronexport manages most of Russia’s weapons sales by cooperating with more than 60 countries and accounts for more than 90 per cent of annual arms sales.

Qatar to buy $10bn of US defence equipment

Qatar to buy $10bn of US defence equipment | Homeland security | Scoop.it

Qatar is looking to buy US$9.9bn worth of missiles and defence equipment from the US, Pentagon officials announced, just days after it placed an order for US$6.5bn worth of missile-defence systems.

The US Defence Security Cooperation Agency notified Congress on Tuesday of the possible sale to Qatar. The US$9.9bn deal “will contribute to the foreign policy and national security of the United States by improving the security of an important ally which has been, and continues to be, a force for political stability and economic progress in the Middle East,” the statement said.
The specifications of the latest order include 11 PATRIOT Configuration-3 Modernised Fire Units, 11 AN/MPQ-65 Radar Sets, 11 AN/MSQ-132 Engagement Control Systems, 30 Antenna Mast Groups, 44 M902 Launching Stations, 246 PATRIOT MIM-104E Guidance Enhanced Missile-TBM (GEM-T) with canisters, 2 PATRIOT MIM-104E GEM-T Test Missiles, 768 PATRIOT Advanced Capability 3 (PAC-3) Missiles with canisters and 10 PAC-3 Test Missiles with canisters.
Earlier this week, US authorities notified Congress of the potential sale to Qatar of two Terminal High Altitude Area Defence (THAAD) fire units, 12 launchers, 150 interceptors and other military equipment worth an estimated US$6.5bn. THAAD is a US Army system designed to shoot down short, medium and intermediate-range ballistic missiles -- Qatar’s reward for being one of Obama’s middle men arming Syrian terrorists for the Assad takedown?

Intelligence and National Security Priorities

Intelligence and National Security Priorities | Homeland security | Scoop.it

A generation ago, in the 1970s, the U.S. intelligence community possessed the technology to discern whether or not a U.S. consulate was under attack by terrorists or by rioters run amok. Moreover, no one in the community ever wanted a superior, especially at the highest levels, to point to an article in the Washington Post or something they saw on television and ask, “What’s this all about?”
I know this, because I lived it—at the time and in the military.
In the ‘70s, intelligence priorities were focused on the Soviet Union, China, and the Communist bloc; nonetheless, an attack on a U.S. consulate would have prompted an immediate call directly to the secretary of state. If an ambassador were murdered, the secretary of state would have been informed, even awakened. It’s likely the next call would have gone to the White House.

Every year, the White House publishes its National Security Strategy of the United States, setting the nation’s security agenda. From the start, the Obama administration erased the term “War on Terror” from the national-security lexicon. In recent months, the narrative has revolved around “Bin Laden is dead and General Motors is alive,” establishing a false syllogism between two disparate and unrelated events nevertheless reflecting national-security priorities … as well as a muddled, uncertainty in priorities.

The attacks in  ....  It seems that the American leaders and the British leaders both have their PRIORITIES all wrong - and both their loyalties lay in totally the wrong place!!  :  DDxx♥!.

'The Security State: On the Anniversary of 9/11, Are the Terrorists Winning the War On Terror?'

'The Security State: On the Anniversary of 9/11, Are the Terrorists Winning the War On Terror?' | Homeland security | Scoop.it

Via The New Yorker:

 

On this, the eleventh anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, there is a general consensus that “we” are winning the so-called war on terror. In Charlotte last week, President Obama declared, “A new tower rises above the New York skyline, Al Qaeda is on the path to defeat, and Osama bin Laden is dead.” That’s true, of course, and it’s right and fitting to remember the victims of 9/11, and pay tribute to the troops who’ve fought in places like Helmand Province.

 

But what sort of victory does it constitute? The primary aim of terrorists is to inspire terror. Bin Laden, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, and other Al Qaeda leaders aspired to force the U.S. military out of Saudi Arabia and other Arab lands, but they knew this was unlikely. Their immediate goal was to strike back at the Great Satan, creating lasting panic, trepidation, and dread inside the United States. They wanted to shock Americans into realizing that the actions their government took overseas would have consequences, potentially very bad consequences, at home. More than a decade on, can we say that the 9/11 terrorists haven’t achieved these things?

 

After fighting two unpopular wars in ten years, the United States is so cowed that it is slinking out of Afghanistan, the task it set itself patently unfinished, while it refuses even to consider intervening in Syria, where a military dictator is bombing his own people. About the only military intervention Washington will countenance these days is bombing suspected enemies, the occasional one an American citizen, with unmanned drones—an activity that largely takes place beyond the purview of Congress and the media.

 

In libertarian and interventionist circles, this state of affairs is widely discussed and lamented. But what of the situation here at home, where the actions of nineteen men armed only with box cutters has transformed the United States into a country consumed to the point of obsession with security? Air travellers have become compulsory participants in peep shows, with high-tech magnetometers and X-ray machines conducting virtual strip searches. Metropolitan police departments have been converted into paramilitary forces armed with assault rifles, armored personnel carriers, and even, in the case of New York, anti-aircraft guns. Peaceful protesting has turned into a potentially dangerous pursuit, given the aggressive policing that it attracts. And many major events now take place behind security cordons so elaborate they are almost laughable...

Top U.S. Terrorist Group: the FBI

Top U.S. Terrorist Group: the FBI | Homeland security | Scoop.it

...Here's how U.S. District Judge Colleen McMahon understood a case that seems all too typical:

"The essence of what occurred here is that a government, understandably zealous to protect its citizens from terrorism, came upon a man both bigoted and suggestible, one who was incapable of committing an act of terrorism on his own.  It created acts of terrorism out of his fantasies of bravado and bigotry, and then made those fantasies come true. . . . I suspect that real terrorists would not have bothered themselves with a person who was so utterly inept." 

When we hear on television that the FBI has prevented a plot to blow up a crowded area of a big U.S. city, we either grow terrified and grateful, or we wait for the inevitable revelation that the FBI created the plot from start to finish, manipulating some poor fool who had zero contact with foreign terrorists and more often than not participated unwittingly or for the money offered him...
