Trump Says The US Won’t Go Into Syria (Even Though The US Is Already...

Brendan Smialowski / AFP / Getty Images President Trump condemned Syrian president Bashar al-Assad as "truly an evil person," and slammed Russia's backing of him following last week's chemical weapons attack, during an interview with Fox Business that aired Wednesday morning. He added that he didn't intend to send the US military to the country, even though there are troops already operating there. "Frankly, Putin is backing a person thats truly an evil person. I think it's very bad for Russia, very bad for mankind, and very bad for this world," Trump said. "When you drop gas and barrel bombs, and have these massive barrels with dynamite and drop them right in the middle of a group of people, and you see the same kids with no arms, no legs, and no face — this is an animal." However, he said there are no plans for an increase in the US military presence in Syria, despite ordering airstrikes there on Thursday. “We’re not going into Syria ... but when I see people us..

Let’s All Ask A Few More Questions Before Claiming Russia Hacked Brexit

Many news outlets are covering a report by MPs into how last summer's EU referendum was conducted. The report has resulted in some pretty shocking headlines about potential foreign interference in the vote. BBC The House of Commons public accounts and constitutional affairs select committee published a lengthy investigation on Wednesday morning into the conduct of last summer's EU referendum campaign that includes some startling suggestions regarding the conduct of the referendum. The most shocking claim focuses on the UK's central voter registration site, which crashed in the final hours before the 7 June deadline to apply for a vote in the referendum. This forced the government to introduce emergency legislation to extend the voter registration deadline, which had the side effect of enabling hundreds of thousands of extra people to apply for a vote. The House of Commons committee's report into the conduct of the referendum concluded that it could "not rule out..

The White House Accused Russia Of Trying To Cover Up Syria’s Chemical Attack

Handout / Reuters WASHINGTON — US officials said on Tuesday the evidence that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad used the nerve agent sarin in an attack last week is overwhelming and accused the Russian government of waging a “disinformation" campaign to shield the Syrian government from criticism. The remarks came ahead of the White House’s declassification of a four-page report accusing Syria and Russia of spreading “false narratives” about the attack that killed about 80 people and prompted a US military strike. "The Syrian regime and its primary backer, Russia, have sought to confuse the world community about who is responsible for using chemical weapons against the Syrian people in this and earlier attacks," said the National Security Council report. Officials said a wealth of evidence supported their claim, citing open-source videos, satellite imagery, intercepted communications, and physiological evidence from the attack site. By releasing the report, the Trump administration sho..

But when Iran’s president Hassan Rouhani visited Moscow to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin in late March, the two men were keen to gloss over any differences.

Yahoo Accused Of Mismanaging Millions That Were Meant For Humanitarian Aid

Robert Galbraith / Reuters WASHINGTON — A lawsuit filed on Tuesday accuses Yahoo! of mismanaging millions of dollars in trust funds that were supposed to aid Chinese political dissidents. In 2007, Yahoo agreed to set up a human rights fund as part of a settlement with the families of dissidents who accused the tech company of turning over information about them to the Chinese government. According to the latest court filings, Yahoo paid $17.3 million to establish the fund. The plaintiffs now suing Yahoo — Chinese dissidents imprisoned in the past for their political activities who say they should have been beneficiaries of the Yahoo funds — say that $13 million of the trust's money is gone, largely spent on expenses unrelated to direct humanitarian and legal aid. According to the suit, approximately $700,000 of the Yahoo money was spent on providing direct humanitarian aid to imprisoned dissidents over the past decade. Meanwhile, millions more were spent by a Yahoo-funded nonprof..
