The Israeli intelligence followed on the heels of an April 13, 2017 speech given by CIA Director Mike Pompeo, who told an audience at the Center for Strategic and International Studies that, once information had come in about a chemical attack on Khan Shaykhun, the CIA had been able to “develop several hypothesis around that, and then to begin to develop fact patterns which either supported or suggested that the hypothesis wasnt right.” The CIA, Pompeo said, was “in relatively short order able to deliver to [President Trump] a high-confidence assessment that, in fact, it was the Syrian regime that had launched chemical strikes against its own people in [Khan Shaykhun.]” The speed in which this assessment was made is of some concern. Both Director Pompeo, during his CSIS remarks, and National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster, during comments to the press on April 6, 2017, note that President Trump turned to the intelligence community early on in the crisis to understand better “the circumstances of the attack and who was responsible.

Corbyn is a mugwump, says Boris Johnson Some commentators had speculated the Tories were 'hiding' Boris Johnson during the election campaign. But now he has won headlines by writing in The Sun that Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn is a "mutton-headed old mugwump", displaying his usual taste for recondite vocabulary. In a speech in London, he praised Theresa May. May wants deep and special EU partnership Theresa May last night held a 'working dinner' for European Council President Jean-Claude Juncker and the EU's chief Brexit negotiator, Michel Barnier, at Downing Street. Greeting Juncker before the cameras, May was "all smiles", says Sky News. She later told the men she wants a "deep and special partnership with the EU". Better Care fund was a ruse, say MPs A cross-party group of MPs has damned the Better Care fund set up by the government in 2014 as "little more than a ruse" used to "paper over" cracks in funding.

KUALA LUMPUR: No new cases of H5N1 outbreak has been reported in the country, including in Kelantan so far, the Dewan Negara sitting was told today. Deputy Agriculture and Agro-based Minister Datuk Seri Tajuddin Abdul Rahman (pix) said however the monitoring operations were still being actively carried out by the Veterinary Services Department (JPV) in efforts to curb the outbreak. "JPV at the state level has been directed to oversee and monitor the movement of poultry from within and outside the country to detect H5N1 outbreaks. "The department also implemented the National Sampling Programme to make it compulsory to notify on animal diseases and those with an economic impact," he said during the oral question session. He was replying to Senator Datuk Seri Syed Ibrahim Kader who asked the ministry on the measures that had been taken by the government to ensure poultry was safe to be consumed. — Bernama

KUALA LUMPUR: The free trade agreement (FTA) negotiations between Malaysia and the European Union (EU) will include a discussion on the recent resolution by the EU parliament to phase out the use of certain vegetable oils, including palm oil, by 2020. Deputy Minister of International Trade and Industry Datuk Chua Tee Yong said although the resolution is non-binding on EU member states, the government viewed the recent development very seriously, as it involved a major export commodity and the livelihood of about 500,000 smallholders. "With the resumption of the FTA negotiations, we will definitely put it up for discussion," he told reporters after officiating the EU-Malaysia Trade and Investment Forum 2017 here today. He said the resolution, however, doesn't ban entirely palm oil from being exported to the EU. "It is more a concern about whether there will be additional tariff measures to be implemented," he added.

And it is one which will ultimately hurt France and French citizens far more than it will damage Algeria. Algerians know their history, and despite all the pain and bloodshed, can be proud of it. As my Professor Olivier Roy once told me, there is no way we can compete: Algerians have a deep understanding of French and European culture, of the Middle East, of African identity. They can adopt multiple identities, build on multiple allegiances and access a multitude of information sources. This century will be theirs if they can manage a peaceful and democratic progression which includes all of Algerian citizens in a real reflection about the future of the country. The equivalent unfortunately cannot be said in the context of the French presidential election, tarnished with corruption, racism and lies Jessica Northey is a Research Associate with the Centre for Trust, Peace and Social Relations at the University of Coventry.
