The latest new about Trump and the intelligence world looks bad.
Trump, at the height of the controversy of firing FBI head Comey, who was investigating the Putin Trump ties, as a way to stop the investigation, decided to accept Putin’s push for Russia’s Ambassador and Russia’s Foreign Minister to visit the White House with Trump.
During the meeting, Trump told the Foreign Minister and Ambassador classified American intelligence, received from Israel. The following are the related news to what occurred:
At the end of this report is about 30 link to news, of most that occurred in the global intelligence world in the past few years and with what just occurred at the White House meeting, the summary can be drawn from them that America is now lead by Trump, who is a “Man-Baby.” And this conclusion, is similar to many in the American media reports, such as The New York Times.
What is a “Man Baby?” Mostly, this means a person who “Does Not Know What He is Doing.” In the highly competitive and dangerous intelligence world, a person who does not know what he is doing is very risky and dangerous to himself and other he represents. Unfortunately, Trump represents America, a powerful country, so the risk and danger is very significant.
On top of now, with a “Man-Baby” being Trump leading a powerful country, for the past few years the intelligence world had been rocked with many events that makes that world already highly risky. For example the the intelligence agency of the Free World in conflict, such as inter-spying among the Free World countries, leading to calls for closer cooperation.
Some of the news are: U.S., France to Strengthen Intelligence Sharing – Department of Defense, France may raise a fuss but still needs U.S. intelligence – USA Today, Not Just the U.S.: Russian Government Hacking France, Germany and …, Germany asks top US intelligence official to leave country over spy …
Here an Important Note:
German intelligence committee head calls Donald Trump ‘a security risk to the Western world’ reported The Independent (source)
Burkhard Lischka, who sits on the Bundestag’s intelligence oversight committee, said: “If it proves to be true that the American president passed on internal intelligence matters that would be highly worrying.”
Noting that Mr Trump has access to “exclusive and highly sensitive information including in the area of combating terrorism” the Social Democratic Party (SDP) politician said that if the President “passes this information to other governments at will, then Trump becomes a security risk for the entire western world”.
What is an “Intelligence Agency?
An intelligence agency is a government agency responsible for the collection, analysis, and exploitation of information in support of law enforcement, national security, military, and foreign policy objectives.
Means of information gathering are both overt and covert and may include espionage, communication interception, cryptanalysis, cooperation with other institutions, and evaluation of public sources. The assembly and propagation of this information is known as intelligence analysis or intelligence assessment. Intelligence agencies can provide the following services for their national governments.
Provision of analysis in areas relevant to national security;
Give early warning of impending crises;
Serve national and international crisis management by helping to discern the intentions of current or potential opponents;
Inform national defense planning and military operations;
Protect sensitive information secrets, both of their own sources and activities, and those of other state agencies;
Defense against the efforts of other national intelligence agencies (counter-intelligence).
There is a distinction between “security intelligence” and “foreign intelligence”. Security intelligence pertains to domestic threats (e.g., terrorism, espionage). Foreign intelligence involves information collection relating to the political, or economic activities of foreign states. Some agencies have been involved in assassination, arms trafficking, coups d’état, and the placement of misinformation (propaganda) as well as other covert operations, in order to support their own or their governments’ interests.They also have spies.
CIA is the largest of the intelligence agencies and is responsible for gathering data from other countries that could impact U.S. policy. It is a civilian intelligence agency of the United States government responsible for providing national security intelligence to senior United States policymakers. The CIA also engages in covert activities at the request of the President of the United States of America. The CIA’s primary function is to collect information about foreign governments, corporations, and individuals, and to advise public policymakers. The agency conducts covert operations and paramilitary actions, and exerts foreign political influence through its Special Activities Division. It has failed to control terrorism activities including 9/11, Not even a single top level Al-Queda leader captured own its own in the past 9 years – ‘they missed 1 Million’ Soviet troops marching into Afghanistan’. Iraq’s Weapons of Mass Destruction, Have the found them yet? -Number of defectors/ double agents numbers close to a thousand. On 50th anniversary of CIA, President Clinton said ”By necessity, the American people will never know the full story of your courage. Indeed, no one knows that what CIA really does”. Highly funded and technologically most advanced Intelligence set-up in the world.
The Federal Security Service of Russian Federation (FSD) is the main domestic security agency of the Russian Federation and the main successor agency of the Soviet-era Cheka, NKVD and KGB. The FSB is involved in counter-intelligence, internal and border security, counter-terrorism, and surveillance. Its headquarters are on Lubyanka Square, downtown Moscow, the same location as the former headquarters of the KGB. All law enforcement and intelligence agencies in Russia work under the guidance of FSB, if needed. For example, the GRU, spetsnaz and Internal Troops detachments of Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs work together with the FSB in Chechnya. The FSB is responsible for internal security of the Russian state, counterespionage, and the fight against organized crime, terrorism, and drug smuggling. The number of FSB personnel and its budget remain state secrets, although the budget was reported to jump nearly 40% in 2006.
The British have had a long public perception of an effective intelligence agency (due to the success of the unrealistic, yet entertaining, James Bond movies). This perception matches reality. MI6, the British equivalent to the CIA, has had two big advantages in staying effective: The British Official Secrets Act and D notices can often prevent leaks (which have been the bane of the CIA’s existence). Some stories have emerged. In the Cold War, MI6 recruited Oleg Penkovsky, who played a key part in the favorable resolution of the Cuban Missile Crisis, and Oleg Gordievski, who operated for a decade before MI6 extracted him via Finland. The British were even aware of Norwood’s activities, but made the decision not to tip their hand. MI6 also is rumored to have sabotaged the Tu-144 supersonic airliner program by altering documents and making sure they fell into the hands of the KGB.
The Mossad is responsible for intelligence collection and covert operations including paramilitary activities. It is one of the main entities in the Israeli Intelligence Community, along with Aman (military intelligence) and Shin Bet (internal security), but its director reports directly to the Prime Minister. The list of its successes is long. Israel’s intelligence agency is most famous for having taken out a number of PLO operatives in retaliation for the attack that killed eleven Israeli athletes at the 1972 Olympic games in Munich. However, this agency has other success to its name, including the acquisition of a MiG-21 prior to the Six-Day war of 1967 and the theft of the plans for the Mirage 5 after the deal with France went sour. Mossad also assisted the United States in supporting Solidarity in Poland during the 1980s.
Directorate General for External Security is France’s external intelligence agency. Operating under the direction of the French ministry of defence, the agency works alongside the DCRI (the Central Directorate of Interior Intelligence) in providing intelligence and national security, notably by performing paramilitary and counterintelligence operations abroad. The General Directorate for External Security (DGSE) of France has a rather short history compared to other intelligence agencies in the region. It was officially founded in 1982 from a multitude of prior intelligence agencies in the country. Its primary focus is to gather intelligence from foreign sources to assist in military and strategic decisions for the country. The agency employs more than five thousand people.
The Federal Intelligence Service (BND comes from its German identity ‘Bundesnachrichtendienst’) is the foreign intelligence agency of Germany, is directly subordinates to the Chancellor’s Office. BND designed about 60 years ago, on 1 April 1956, headquartered in Pullach close to Munich and Berlin. The Federal Intelligence Service of Germany has its existence in list of top 10 best intelligence agencies in the world, though German regime spends about €615.6 million every year. It is responsible of information collection on a variety of areas like foreign non-state terrorism, weapons of mass destruction proliferation. BND also evaluates information of planned offense, illegal transfer of technology, weapons and drug smuggling, money laundering and illegal migration.
