Israel Successfully Hacked ISIS Computers; Trump Leaked It to the Russians

Mod: The Israeli newspaper Haaretz shares some news about one of the worst leakers in the Trump administration, that being the Putin-happy President himself. 

Israel Successfully Hacked ISIS Computers; Trump Leaked It to the Russians (Haaretz link): The source of the classified intelligence that U.S. President Donald Trump shared with Russian officials in May was information Israel obtained after hacking computers belonging to ISIS, the New York Times reported Monday. According to the Times, which cited a U.S. official, Israeli "cyberoperators" managed to penetrate an ISIS cell of bombmakers based in Syria several months ago.

According to the report, the information was so good that it allowed the United States to learn that the terror cell was working on explosives that could fool airport security by passing as a laptop battery.

According to the report, the information helped support a ban since March on carrying electronics such as laptops on incoming flights from number of predominantly Muslim countries to the United States and Britain.

According to a May article in the New York Times, the source of the classified intelligence was Israel. The report cited a current U.S. official and a former one.

The intelligence was shared at a meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Russian Ambassador Sergei Kislyak. The unnamed officials said Israel had previously urged the United States to be cautious with the information. The revelation that Trump shared sensitive intelligence with Russia raises the possibility that the information could be subsequently leaked to Iran.

The New York Times report said Israeli officials refused to confirm that Israel was the source of the information. But BuzzFeed News quoted two Israeli intelligence officials as saying that Israel had shared information with the United States on an Islamic State plan to sneak explosive-laden laptops onto airplanes. The New York Times' report that the U.S. president had shared Israeli intelligence with Russia was Israel's "worst fears confirmed," one of the officers was quoted as saying.

Poll: 47 percent back impeachment for Trump (The Hill link): Nearly half of registered voters support President Trump being impeached, a new poll finds.

Polling firm Public Policy Polling's new poll released Monday shows that 47 percent of voters support Trump being impeached, while 43 percent oppose it.

Trump’s approval rating sits at 41 percent in the new poll, with 52 percent of voters disapproving of job performance. Thirty-six percent of voters think that Trump has delivered on his promises while 56 percent say he has not.

Trump also scored low marks in the poll for his ongoing feud with fired FBI Director James Comey. Fifty-one percent said Comey was the more trustworthy of the two men, while just 39 percent said Trump was. And just 13 percent said the FBI's chief should do whatever Trump tells them to do, while 77 percent disagreed.

    1. I like it, but what use would Trump be for them if he wasn't the president? Here he gives them access to all of our national secrets. In Moscow he'd just be this fat thing that wants to eat all the time.

    2. Left wing organizations used to be a threat to American security due to their sympathy for Moscow. Today the organizations presenting the biggest threat in this regard are all on the right. The Tea Party being one of the most prominent.

    3. Left wing sympathy was never an ongoing threat. Ring wing fanaticism had long been the true threat

  6. Rent control in Sierra Madre? That's called Section 8.

    1. The Section 8 Program offers tenant-based assistance. Participants find their own housing to rent in the open market, and pay a portion of their income towards rent. The Housing Authority subsidizes the balance of the monthly rent in direct payments to the owner. The Housing Authority administers Section 8 in the jurisdiction of Los Angeles County only, though eligible participants may transfer their rental assistance to other parts of the country.

    1. Ask the FBI. Ask the Israelis. Ask the Germans, the French, the British. The NSA, the CIA. Pretty much all of the intelligence, media and governmental agencies around the sentient world. Just because someone doesn't spend their Saturday evenings at Klan rallies yammering about Sharia Law doesn't mean there is no validity to what is being said about Traitor Trump.

    It seems like everyone in the government who supports Donald Trump has at some time or another played peek-a-boo with the Ruskies. Why even our own surfer boy, Dana Rohrbacher, I'm given to understand has had daliances with the Ivans. It's the damndest thing. I guess we'll know more today when Beauregard finishes his testimony.

  12. It appears the Russians had their audio recorders rolling or maybe Donald Trump gave them the tapes of the secret Russian meeting in the White House? Russian President Vladimir Putin said Wednesday that he is ready to provide the U.S. Senate with a transcript of last week's controversial Oval Office meeting between President Trump and Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov that is at the center of allegations that Trump revealed highly classified information.

    "If the U.S. administration considers it possible, we are ready to submit a transcript of Lavrov’s talk with Trump to the U.S. Senate and Congress, if, of course, the U.S. administration would want this," Putin said, according to the Russian-owned Tass news agency.
