    From an Intelligence Perspective, Was 9/11 Avoidable?

    From an Intelligence Perspective, Was 9/11 Avoidable?

    The attacks on the World Trade Centre and on the Pentagon had a lasting effect on the world which we still see to this day. The events that had taken place on September 11, 2001, was quoted by many as the event that had ‘changed everything.' The attacks had caused many changes to happen in many aspects around the world and changed many attitudes as to how to cope and deal with terrorism. It had caused conflicts to begin in Afghanistan and Iraq, with many nations around the world rushing to America’s aid to deal with those that had caused 9/11. Security was increased drastically to try and prevent anything on this magnitude to ever be able to happen again. The biggest change to have come from the attacks was surely the intelligence services.

    Manufactured Wars

    Today, the Trump Administration has put the United States on the wrong side of history yet again. What we are witnessed to today is a repeat of how wrong Government has been ever since World War II. We have failed to heed the warnings from General Douglas Mac Arthur. And, I quote

    Fire and Fury: The Language of Waves and Radiation

    Imagine this. You had just gotten home from work, school, or whatever you do during the day or night. You are tired, and excited to rest after an especially hard day. When you get home, you open your preferred beverage, and turn on the television. Your favorite television show had recently released a new season, and you are excited to watch it. Unfortunately, the streaming service has ads. You make the best of it, having your cellphone by your side to keep you entertained during the commercials.

    Sly Spy

    Sly Spy

    "You dirty, double-crossing rat." That is one of James Cagney's most famous lines. It is also applicable in many instances in politics and especially when it comes to the FBI and CIA. Most of their job description includes certain levels of betrayal and secrecy. Maybe it's one of the allures of working for those organizations. Monica Elfriede Witt was a spy for the United States and became an expert in betrayals. Eventually, she would take those skills and turn them on the country that taught them to her.

    Donald Trump wants the United States out of the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF), signed by President Reagan and then-future President Gorbachev of the Soviet Union. There is a lot of speculation as to why we would pull out; what is the purpose?

    Live from the Scene: CNN NYC Evacuated

    This is the first time that I have been a part of the story that I am covering, so here goes nothing. While working on a project at Argo Tea Cafe in Columbus Circle, there was a noticeable uptick in police presence. Nothing unusual in Manhattan, especially within the spitting distance of major news outlets. Not only is CNN down here but ABC has a new studio right down the street.

    What Is the GRU (And Why We Should Be Very Afraid of It!)

    What Is the GRU (And Why We Should Be Very Afraid of It!)

    Back in the 1980s, the West was terrified of two Soviet intelligence agencies. The first was the KGB, who ran spy rings and handled internal security (especially the border police and the gulags). It was effective but something of a blunt instrument. Even inside Russia its name was sometimes jokingly translated as Kontora Grubykh Banditov or “Office of Crude Bandits.” The KGB's main job was preserving the USSR by suppressing dissent and gathering information about foreign threats. It had a pretty merciless reputation and much of its impact came from a widespread belief that it was always watching.

    How Likely Is War with North Korea?

    How Likely Is War with North Korea?

    As you've seen on the news, the North Korean administration is getting itself lots of attention in the Western world. Threat of war looms over us, and Trump acts as a catalyst, returning verbal fire and increasing UN sanctions on the country. But threats are one thing, total war is another. So how likely is that to happen?
