Was Manbij Attack A False Flag To Impede Syria Withdrawal?

Reportedly, four American soldiers were killed and three wounded in a suicide bombing in Syria’s northern flashpoint town of Manbij on Wednesday. Additionally, seven civilians were also killed and nine injured in the bombing, though some reports are mentioning a higher number of casualties.

Islamic State has claimed the responsibility for the attack and named the suspected bomber. “Suicide attacker Abu Yassin al-Shami wearing an explosive vest set off towards a patrol including members of the Crusader coalition and the PKK apostates near the Palace of Princes restaurant in the city of Manbij,” a statement posted on Islamic State-affiliated Amaq news agency said.

Despite denials, documents reveal U.S. training UAE forces for combat in Yemen

When the Pentagon announced last November that it was ceasing aerial refueling of Saudi-led coalition aircraft operating in Yemen, the move appeared to be a major step back from U.S. support for the war there. But newly obtained documents reveal that the United States has also been training coalition military personnel from the United Arab Emirates for the air war in Yemen.

The documents underscore the continuing frustrations for critics of the war, including those in Congress, over the lack of transparency around U.S. military support for a war that has killed thousands of civilians and pushed the country to the brink of famine.

The United States is “not a participant in the civil war in Yemen nor are we supporting one side or the other,” Gen. Joseph F. Dunford Jr., chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said last month, echoing a long-held position in the Pentagon.

Shutdown slows court-ordered inquiry into Clinton email setup 

A series of depositions that a federal judge authorized this week to explore Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email account as secretary of State have been put on ice because of the partial government shutdown.

On Thursday, U.S. District Court Judge Royce Lamberth granted a request from Justice Department lawyers to put the discovery process he ordered on hold and that all related deadlines be extended for as long as the budget standoff continues.

In an order Tuesday, Lamberth agreed to allow the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch to take depositions from 10 or more individuals to explore whether Clinton’s use of the private email setup was a deliberate effort to avoid the Freedom of Information Act and whether lawyers acted in bad faith by trying to settle a Judicial Watch FOIA suit in 2014 and 2015 even though some State Department officials were aware of Clinton’s private email arrangement.

FISA shocker: DOJ official warned Steele dossier was connected to Clinton, might be biased

When the annals of mistakes and abuses in the FBI’s Russia investigation are finally written, Bruce Ohr almost certainly will be the No. 1 witness, according to my sources.

The then-No. 4 Department of Justice (DOJ) official briefed both senior FBI and DOJ officials in summer 2016 about Christopher Steele’s Russia dossier, explicitly cautioning that the British intelligence operative’s work was opposition research connected to Hillary Clinton’s campaign and might be biased.

America’s Other Endless War: Somalia 

WSJ

The death of Staff Sgt. Alex Conrad puts into sharp relief the cost of the U.S.’s long fight against al-Shabaab

MOGADISHU, Somalia—The U.S. commandos careened between grief and anger as Alex Conrad’s flag-draped coffin was hoisted onto the cargo plane.

Al-Shabaab militants allied with al Qaeda had killed Staff Sgt. Conrad at a rudimentary outpost that American Green Berets built with help of the Somali army.

Now, just as Sgt. Conrad’s comrades were sending him on his final trip home, they were grappling with more bad news. The Somali army has abandoned the outpost hours after the sergeant died. ...

Why is the FBI still keeping key testimony secret? 

James Baker — the general counsel of the FBI during both the Clinton email and Trump-Russia investigations — sat for two interviews with House investigators last October. After the sessions — one on Oct. 3, the other Oct. 18 — Republican Rep. Mark Meadows called parts of Baker's testimony "explosive."

Republicans intended to make the interview transcripts public. The questioning was not conducted in a classified setting, and Baker had FBI and other lawyers with him the whole time. But the House still had to send the transcripts to the FBI for clearance, just to make sure public release would not reveal any classified or otherwise secret information.

If Republicans hoped for a quick OK from the bureau, they were sorely disappointed. October passed. Then November. Then December. And now, half of January. The FBI still has the transcripts, and there is no word on when the bureau will clear them for release.

Judge rules Susan Rice, Ben Rhodes must answer watchdog's questions on Clinton email server, Benghazi

Former Obama administration officials must answer written questions under oath about the 2012 Benghazi terror attacks in Libya as part of a court-ordered discovery related to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s unauthorized email server, conservative watchdog Judicial Watch announced Tuesday.

Despite objections from the Justice Department and State Department, United States District Judge Royce Lamberth ruled that discovery could commence examining Clinton’s use of the server. As a result, a group of nearly 10 top State Department and White House officials during the Obama administration will be deposed under oath as Judicial Watch seeks to uncover whether the 2012 Benghazi terror attacks in Libya was a factor in “keeping Mrs. Clinton’s email secret.”

Police can't force you to unlock phone with Face ID or fingerprint, judge rules

Law enforcement can't force you to unlock a phone with your face, fingerprint or other biometric features, according to a new court order.

US Magistrate Judge Kandis Westmore denied a search warrant request that sought permission to use biometrics features -- such as FaceID on an iPhone or Iris Scanner on a Samsung Galaxy -- to unlock and search devices at a residence in Oakland, California. The court order, issued Jan. 10, was reported earlier by Forbes.

"The court finds that the government's request runs afoul of the Fourth and Fifth Amendments, and the search warrant application must be denied," wrote Westmore. "Today's mobile phones are not comparable to other storage equipment, be it physical or digital, and are entitled to greater privacy protection."
