The major lesson learned here, however, is that the U.S. Intelligence Community, and in particular the CIA, more often than not hides behind self-generated platitudes (“high confidence”, “reasonable person”) to disguise a process of intelligence analysis that has long ago been subordinated to domestic politics. It is important to point out the fact that Israel, too, was wrong about Iraq’s WMD. According to Shlomo Brom, a retired Israeli Intelligence Officer, Israeli intelligence seriously overplayed the threat posed by Iraqi WMD in the lead up to the 2003 Iraq War, including a 2002 briefing to NATO provided by Efraim Halevy, who at the time headed the Israeli Mossad, or intelligence service, that Israel had “clear indications” that Iraq had reconstituted its WMD programs after U.N. weapons inspectors left Iraq in 1998.

With this in mind, Sputnik Persian suggested that Trump will be unlikely to break the agreement, since it is an international treaty. Leaving the agreement in a unilateral manner would be too adventurist, even for Trump, because the credibility and image of the US would plummet throughout the world, including in the eyes of America's European allies. All those who took part in the negotiations and creation of this nuclear agreement (the United Kingdom, France, Germany) supported and support the JCPOA, Sputnik Persian recalled. Moreover, nearly the entire European Union is interested in this international deal, and on developing trade and economic relations with Iran. Effectively, Iranian observers say that all that is left for Trump to do is to slow the process of the deal's implementation, and nothing more.

“This is an authoritarianism that hides behind the armed forces that, far from acting as the forces of order, act as the forces of repression and terror,” he said after the first reported death. Late Tuesday, Rodriguez had warned that Venezuela would quit the OAS if the body proceeded with scheduling a special session on the crisis here, calling it an infringement on Venezuela’s sovereignty. She said the pressure being brought by the U.S. on some members like Haiti to punish Venezuela had been considerable. Two years to leave Withdrawing from the OAS is a two-year process, but Rodriguez said Venezuela would immediately stop participating. Venezuela is estimated to owe the OAS about $10.5 million in unpaid annual dues. No country has ever withdrawn from the group since its founding in 1948.

In other words, Google responds to mobile search requests with mobile-optimized results. If you have a mobile website, that gives you preferential treatment, and an edge over your local competition. However, it also means that if your site isn't mobile-ready, there's a good chance it won't appear in those search results (now 28 percent of all search requests) at all. The good news is that getting a mobile website, complex as it might sound, is actually not a difficult process. Your website provider should be able to provide one in a very short timeframe. If you don't already have one, give them a call. It's probably the easiest way to reach more clients than ever before. It is very important to have a strong Web presence for your business to survive. Whether you run an eCommerce website or not, it is still as important for your customers to find you online.

After reports that President Donald Trump was considering an executive order to withdraw the United States from the North American Free Trade Agreement, the White House said Wednesday that Trump agreed not to take such action after phone calls with the leaders of Canada and Mexico. Since launching his bid for president, Trump has repeatedly criticized the nation’s trade deals, especially NAFTA, saying the agreement signed in 1994 has been a “disaster” and allowed many U.S. jobs to shift to Mexico. “President Trump agreed to not terminate NAFTA at this time, and the leaders agreed to proceed swiftly, according to their required internal procedures, to enable renegotiation of the NAFTA deal to the benefit of all three countries,” the White House said. The statement further said Trump is honored to work with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto, and that he believes the renegotiation process will make the three countries stronger.

Ongoing efforts by President Trump to delegate more and more of his war-making powers directly to the military leadership took a major new step on April 20, when he signed a classified memo delegating all decision-making on US troop levels in the global war against ISIS to Defense Secretary James Mattis. Mattis has subsequently ordered a full audit of current troop levels in the ISIS war, along with the process by which the military will decide troop levels and the extent to which they will inform the American public when they send more ground troops abroad. That could be a particularly important aspect of this delegation, as the Pentagon has long misreported troop levels in Iraq and Syria, and just a few weeks ago announced that they would no longer provide any troop numbers to the public at all, insisting that the American people didn't need to know that.
