I’m sure the media firefighters will be seeking a comment from their favorite democrat president. Especially since the Iranian visitor has been arrested.
From NY Post: A leader of the Iranian-backed siege of the US Embassy in Baghdad visited the White House with other Iraqi officials in 2011 during the Obama administration, according to a report on Thursday.
Hadi al-Amari was photographed outside the US diplomatic compound after the militiamen tried to storm the facility and was identified by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo of being an Iranian “proxy” aiding terror groups in Iraq.
“The attack today was orchestrated by terrorists – Abu Mahdi al Muhandis and Qays al-Khazali – and abetted by Iranian proxies – Hadi al Amari and Faleh al-Fayyad. All are pictured below outside our embassy,” Pompeo wrote in a tweet on Tuesday as the siege was underway.
Amari, the head of the Fatah Alliance, Iraq’s second-largest political party, was Iraq’s minister of transportation in 2011 and accompanied then-Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki on an Oval Office visit with President Obama, the Daily Mail reported.
As the leader of the paramilitary group the Badr Organization, Amari has deep connections with the Iranian leadership and the elite Islamic Revolutionary Guards. He fought alongside US forces against Islamic State terrorists as a commander in the Badr Organization.
Amari also played a crucial role in the formation of the Popular Mobilization Forces, an umbrella group of mostly Shiite militias in Iraq that includes Kataib Hezbollah, which is backed by Iran.
The US military conducted airstrikes over the weekend on five bases in Iraq and Syria belonging to Kataib Hezbollah, killing five fighters and wounded scores more, in an action that sparked the storming of the embassy in Baghdad.
The US blamed the Iran-aligned group with killing an American contractor and wounding four service members in a missile attack on an Iraqi base last Friday.
Louis Freeh, the FBI director in the Clinton administration, criticized Amari’s White House visit at the time because of the allegations connecting him to terrorist attacks, including the 1996 bombing of the Khobar Towers in Saudi Arabia that killed 19 US military personnel.
The attack on the towers was eventually traced to Iran and Hezbollah, the Iranian-linked group based in Lebanon.

I’m not going to pretend that this situation in Baghdad is good – by any means. But when you’ve got a terrorist regime attacking our embassy in any country you’ve got to do something.
Either fight back with our greatest US military power or allow US citizens to die without any response. And then blame the attack on a YouTube video.
I think most would agree to the first option. Unless you are a demorat with a severe case of TDS.
Yesterday President Trump responded forcefully to the pro-Iran militia attack on our embassy in Baghdad. A drone attack killed the evil Qasem Soleimani and U.S. Marines captured and arrested Qais Khazali (Leader of Asaib Ahl al-Haq) and Hadi al-Amiri (Head of Badr Organization).
Read all the details here.
The left, being inflicted with a serious case of TDS, responded as you would expect. Instead of celebrating the death of a terrorist who was responsible for the deaths of over 500 U.S. soldiers, they took sides with a terrorist.
They are NOT on the side of America. Here’s the proof:
“US assassinates Iran military titan”
“John Cusack: ‘Trump in Full Fascist Mode, Steal and Lie and Start a War’
“Joe Biden’s statement on the killing of Qassem Soleimani: “President Trump just tossed a stick of dynamite into a tinderbox.”
Elizabeth Warren: “Soleimani was a murderer, responsible for the deaths of thousands, including hundreds of Americans. But this reckless move escalates the situation with Iran and increases the likelihood of more deaths and new Middle East conflict. Our priority must be to avoid another costly war.”
“Washington Post notes death of Iran’s ‘revered military leader’ Qasem Soleimani”
“Trump Is Clueless on Iran and North Korea”
“U.S. Strike Ordered by Trump Kills Powerful Iranian Commander”
“U.S. Strike Kills Iran’s Most Important Military Commander”
Never change, demorats. Never change.
Feel good story.
From The Sun: An ISIS terrorist blew himself up when the drone bomb he was operating ran low on battery — and flew back.
The idiotic killer was targeting allied forces after the Battle for Mosul in northern Iraq.
He had customised his weapon to carry plastic explosive and planned to detonate it by troops based in the city. But his plan backfired because he had forgotten to sufficiently charge the device.
Civilian drones — as weaponised by ISIS — automatically ‘boomerang’ back to their point of launch when they start to run out of power. They are programmed to return to prevent owners losing their machines.
UK troops — including the SAS — are training Iraqi soldiers as part of Operation Shader and are plagued by drone attacks.
A security source said: “We receive intelligence from locals about enemy activity and tactics. We learned this idiot had wired up his drone with explosives but was killed when it’s batteries ran low and it flew home. With a weak signal for some reason it detonated over his head.”
“This caused quite a laugh for us but the drone threat is very real. The fighter killed himself last year due to his own ineptitude, but is still keeping moral high today.” ISIS has become advanced in its use of drone weapons, which it dubs its ‘air force’.
The battle for Mosul ended officially in 2017 but British troops are still training Iraqis there.
Although the battle for the city was won, the drone threat is ongoing.
Customised commercial versions — such as the £1,200 Chinese-made DJI Phantom — are used as flying bombs or to carry munitions to drop.
The source said a common, simple and effective tactic is to push a hand grenade — with pin pulled — in a steel tube attached to the aircraft. Once over the target the drone is remotely dipped so the grenade slides out of the tube, releasing the trigger mechanism.
Some grenades are adapted with fins attached to help them fly more accurately.
Iraqi security forces then came up with their own response, by attaching shuttlecock feathers to their own grenades, again dropped by drone, to help guide the munitions to the ground.
The source added: “Drone warfare is hugely effective for insurgents.
The New York Times reports, May 26, 2019, that U. S. Navy pilots reported that they had seen unidentified flying objects (UFOs) almost daily from the summer of 2014 to March 2015, high in the skies over the East Coast. In late 2014, a Super Hornet pilot had a near collision with one of the objects, and an official mishap report was filed.
The pilots began noticing the objects after their 1980s-era radar was upgraded to a more advanced system, which suggests that the UFOs had been present before, but were undetected.
The UFOs had no visible engine or infrared exhaust plumes, but could reach 30,000 feet and hypersonic speeds. Some of the incidents were videotaped, including one taken by a plane’s camera in early 2015 showing an object zooming over the ocean waves and pilots asking what they were seeing. One pilot exclaimed: “Wow, what is that, man? Look at it fly!”
The pilots’ reports prompted the Navy, earlier this year, to issue an update of its classified guidance for how to report suspected intrusions into our airspace by “unexplained aerial phenomena”.
No one in the Defense Department is saying that the objects were extraterrestrial, and experts emphasize that earthly explanations can generally be found for such incidents. Navy spokesman Joseph Gradisher said, “There were a number of different reports.” Some cases could have been commercial drones, but in other cases “we don’t know who’s doing this, we don’t have enough data to track this. So the intent of the message to the fleet is to provide updated guidance on reporting procedures for suspected intrusions into our airspace.”
The pilots reported their sightings to a little-known shadowy Pentagon agency called the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP). Founded in 2007, the secretive program investigates reports of UFOs, consuming $22 million of the Pentagon’s $600 billion annual budget. Until October 2017 when he resigned, the AATIP was run by military intelligence official Luis Elizondo from the fifth floor of the Pentagon’s C Ring. Elizondo is quoted by the NYT as calling the sightings “a striking series of incidents.”
In interviews with the New York Times, five Navy pilots said they saw the UFOs in 2014 and 2015 in training maneuvers from Virginia to Florida off the aircraft carrier Theodore Roosevelt. The pilots are Lieutenants Ryan Graves and Danny Accoin, F/A-18 Super Hornet pilots in the VFA-11 “Red Rippers” squadron, and three other pilots of the squadron who declined to be named. In the summer of 2014, the squadron was training out of Naval Air Station Oceana, Va., for a deployment to the Persian Gulf.
Lt. Danny Accoin said he interacted twice with the objects:
Lt. Ryan Graves, who has been with the Navy for 10 years, still cannot explain what he saw. He said the UFOs showed up at 30,000 feet, 20,000 feet, even sea level. The objects could accelerate, slow down, and then hit hypersonic speed:
“These things would be out there all day. Keeping an aircraft in the air requires a significant amount of energy. With the speeds we observed, 12 hours in the air is 11 hours longer than we’d expect. People have seen strange stuff in military aircraft for decades. We’re doing this very complex mission, to go from 30,000 feet, diving down. It would be a pretty big deal to have something up there.”
Lt. Graves said that in late 2014, he was back at base in Virginia Beach when he encountered a squadron mate just back from a mission “with a look of shock on his face” who told Graves “I almost hit one of those things.” The pilot and his wingman were flying in tandem about 100 feet apart over the Atlantic east of Virginia Beach when something flew between them, right past the cockpit. The UFO looked like a sphere encasing a cube.
The near-miss so spooked Graves’ squadron that an aviation flight safety report was filed.
What was strange was that the video showed objects accelerating to hypersonic speed, making sudden stops and instantaneous turns — something beyond the physical limits of a human crew. Lt. Graves explains: “Speed doesn’t kill you. Stopping does. Or acceleration.”
Until then, Lt. Graves and the other pilos had thought the UFOs were part of some classified and extremely advanced U.S. drone program. But the near miss angered the squadron, and convinced them that the objects were not part of a classified drone program because government officials would know fighter pilots were training in the area and would not have sent drones to get in the way.
Asked what they thought the objects were, Lts. Graves and Accoin refused to speculate:
Lts. Graves and Accoin, along with former American intelligence officials, appear in a six-part History Channel series, “Unidentified: Inside America’s U.F.O. Investigation,” to air beginning tomorrow, May 31. Below is a snippet.
The pilots said the UFO sightings tapered off after they left the United States when, in March 2015, the aircraft carrier Roosevelt left the coast of Florida and headed to the Persian Gulf as part of the U.S.-led mission fighting the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria.
Freshman Congresswoman Ilhan Omar recently declared, “This is not going to be country of white people”. Meanwhile, Muslim children in Philadelphia sing songs about torturing, killing, and chopping off the heads of their enemies.
But it’s not just Muslims who are bent on killing Christians.
Yisrael Ariel, 80, the former chief rabbi of the Israeli settlement in the Sinai Peninsula during the years when the Sinai was controlled by Israel, is the founder of the Temple Institute, an organization in Israel aimed at reinstating animal sacrificial worship and building the third Jewish temple on the Temple Mount that is currently occupied by the Islamic mosque, Dome of the Rock. Ariel is also involved in the effort to revive the Sanhedrin — a national rabbinical court of Jewish law in Israel.
If you think the Muslim jihad or holy war against infidels is bad, you ain’t seen nothing yet.
On September 9, 2015, in Jerusalem, Yisrael Ariel was recorded as declaring that the whole world must be brought under the Sanhedrin rule of the Seven Noahide Laws, by war. Males who refuse to follow the Seven Laws — Christians and Muslims — will be killed, until “there is no more Christianity, no more Islam.”
Below are quotes from Rabbi Ariel’s talk:
“What power does the Sanhedrin have with respect to the other nations of the world?…. Maimonides [a Jewish rabbi of the Middle Ages] says that they must agree to follow the Seven Noahide Laws.”
“Just as there is a commandment to conquer the land of Israel, there is a commandment to fight sanctioned laws…. Who makes the decision to embark on a sanctioned war? King David asks the Sanhedrin!…. Maimonides says that King David went to the Sanhedrin and asked them if he could go out and conquer. Everything that David did was sanctioned by the High Court…. Then he [David] went out to conquer Northern Syria and Aleppo….”
“Non-Jews who do not follow the seven Noahide Laws, such as ‘Thou shalt not kill’ and ‘Thou shalt not steal’, etc., you proclaim peace to them, meaning, you ask them ‘Do you follow the seven laws?’. If so, we will allow you to live. If not, you kill all of their males, by sword. You only leave the women…. They must all agree to follow the seven Laws. And that is how you impose the seven Laws on that city.
Someone just said: ‘We don’t have the might to fight.’ But who decides if we have might or not? God! He gives you the might to raise an army. Therefore, he is the one who commanded [us] to go from city to city, to conquer them and to impose the seven Laws [throughout] the world. That is the job of the [Jewish] messiah, among others….
We will conquer Iraq, Turkey…. We will get to Iran too. We will impose the seven Noahide Laws on all these places. But installing does not mean with courts! Rather, it means with war! But not to just kill. Just the opposite. You say ‘I call upon you in peace.’ If they raise the flag [of surrender] and say, ‘From now on, there is no more Christianity, no more Islam. The mosques and the Christian spires and their crosses come down, from now on we follow the seven Noahide Laws.’ This is a task of the messiah, to bring the entire world to the seven Laws, for real….
Therefore, Maimonides says that if you see a person in the street who does not follow the seven Laws…if you have the might, you have to kill him. If you catch [U.S. President] Obama on the street and you know that he does not follow the seven Laws, etc., you are commanded to kill him…and the sooner the better….
If someone threatens you, to ruin you, to kill you, you kill him first. But there are numerous levels to the snake, and you have to go level by level…. May we all merit to follow the commandments, and to see the messiah follow these commandments.”

The next time someone heaps scorn on you, making fun of your suspicions about the U.S. or nay government by calling you a “conspiracy theorist,” do the following:
The term “false flag” has its origins in naval warfare where a flag other than the belligerent’s true battle flag is used as a ruse de guerre or pretext for war. As the term is used in contemporary America, a “false flag” incident is some traumatic event that is contrived and manipulated by the authorities to achieve some covert agenda. The public is given an untruthful version of the event by government and/or the media. The intended result is a “rallying around the flag” effect, wherein an inflamed and duped populace rally in support of the government’s or the deep state’s secret agenda.
Admittedly, it is difficult for the ordinary American to think the U.S. government can stoop so low as to instigate false flags, for that would mean our government is in the hands of people so diabolical, calling them psychopaths does not begin to describe what they are. That is a frightening thought.
But it is a thought not entirely alien to our Founding Fathers who instituted a polity based on a view of human nature as inherently self-interested instead of benevolent, and of government as a necessary evil that must be constrained and delimited. To quote James Madison in The Federalist Papers:
“What is government itself but the greatest of all reflections on human nature? If men were angels, no government would be necessary. If angels were to govern men, neither external or internal controls on government would be necessary. In framing a government which is to be administered by men over men, the great difficulty lies in this: You must first enable the government to control the governed, and in the next place oblige it to control itself.”
For his part, Thomas Jefferson, in his 1787 letter to Edward Carrington, vividly described what government would be if unchecked and unsupervised. He warned that “if once” the people “become inattentive to the public affairs, you and I, and Congress, and Assemblies, Judges, and Governors, shall all become wolves.”
Even with checks and balances in place, the history of the United States is riddled with actual and planned false flags and conspiracies. As an example, the 1964 Gulf of Tonkin incident, in which the U.S.S. Maine and U.S.S. Turner Joy reportedly were fired on without provocation by the North Vietnamese, was a false flag of the Lyndon Johnson Administration. Congress took the bait and passed the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution that, by pre-approving the president’s military actions, gave Johnson a free ticket to wage war in Vietnam. It turned out no Vietnamese boats were even in the gulf at the time of the alleged attack.
Then there was Operation Northwoods of the Kennedy Administration, a false flag of such scope and devious audacity, it takes your breath away.
Proposed by the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff and approved by the head of every branch of the U.S. armed forces, Operation Northwoods called for the CIA or other government operatives to undertake acts of terrorism against U.S. military and civilian targets in Guantanamo Bay, Miami, other Florida cities, and even in Washington, D.C. Proposed acts included sinking U.S. ships, having fake Cuban MIGs attack a United States Air Force aircraft, hijacking and shooting down a chartered civil airliner, and gunning down civilians in the streets. The attacks would be blamed on the Fidel Castro government, which would be used as pretexts for a “military intervention” against Cuba.
Thankfully, President Kennedy rejected the proposals. A year and 8 months later, on November 22, 1963, he was assassinated.
Few of us know that in January 2003 before the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq, President George W. Bush had toyed with the idea of a similar false flag to justify the invasion.
Don Van Natta Jr. reports for the New York Times, March 27, 2016, that Bush’s proposal is described in a 5-page confidential memo written by David Manning, UK Prime Minister Tony Blair’s chief foreign policy adviser at the time.
The memo chronicles a private two-hour meeting of Bush and Blair in the Oval Office on January 31, 2003. Five days after the meeting, Secretary of State Colin L. Powell was scheduled to appear before the United Nations to present evidence that Iraq posed a threat to world security by hiding unconventional “weapons of mass destruction” (WMDs), although UN inspectors, led by Hans Blix, had spent six weeks in Iraq hunting with no success for those WMDs.
Stamped “extremely sensitive,” the memorandum, which was circulated among a handful of Blair’s most senior aides, had not been made public. However, several highlights from the memo were first published in January in the book Lawless World, by British lawyer and international law professor Philippe Sands. In early February, Channel 4 in London broadcast several excerpts from the memo. Since then, The New York Times has reviewed the memo in its entirety. Two senior British officials have confirmed the authenticity of the memo, but declined to talk further about it, citing Britain’s Official Secrets Act, which makes it illegal to divulge classified information.
According to the memo, at the time of the meeting, the United States and Britain had been pressing for a second United Nations resolution condemning Iraq, which they would fail to obtain. Bush had issued a public ultimatum to Saddam Hussein: Disarm or face war. But behind closed doors, Bush was certain that war was inevitable. During the January 31 meeting, he made clear to Blair that he was determined to invade Iraq without the second UN resolution, or even if international arms inspectors failed to find unconventional weapons. Bush had even penciled in March 10th as the start date for the military campaign when the bombing would begin.
Bush and Blair candidly expressed their doubts that chemical, biological or nuclear weapons would be found in Iraq in the coming weeks. The two envisioned a quick victory and a transition to a new Iraqi government that would be complicated, but manageable. Bush predicted and Blair agreed that it was “unlikely there would be internecine warfare between the different religious and ethnic groups”, which turned out to be woefully wrong. In fact, former officers of Saddam Hussein’s defeated army would become leaders of ISIS. (See “Blowback: ISIS leaders are former officers of Saddam Hussein’s army”)
According to the memo, Bush and Blair both acknowledged that no unconventional weapons had been found inside Iraq. Faced with the possibility of not finding any WMDs before the planned invasion, Bush talked about three ways to provoke a confrontation.
As described in the memo:
Bush was accompanied at the meeting by Condoleezza Rice, who was then the national security adviser; Dan Fried, a senior aide to Rice; and Andrew H. Card Jr., the White House chief of staff. Accompanying Tony Blair were David Manning; Jonathan Powell, Blair’s chief of staff; and Matthew Rycroft, a foreign policy aide and the author of the Downing Street memo of July 2002, which shows that some senior British officials had been concerned that the United States was determined to invade Iraq, and that the “intelligence and facts were being fixed around the policy” by the Bush administration to fit its desire to go to war.
Despite intense lobbying by the United States and Britain, a second United Nations resolution was not obtained. On March 19, 2003, nine days after the target date set by President Bush in the secret meeting with Blair, the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq began, dubbed Operation Iraqi Freedom, consisting of 21 days of major combat operations.
Coalition military casualties were 4,491 for the United States, and 179 for the UK. Estimates on the number of Iraqi civilian casualties range from 3,200 to 7,500.
Many U.S. veterans of the Iraq War have reported a range of serious health issues, including tumors, daily blood in urine and stool, sexual dysfunction, migraines, frequent muscle spasms, and other symptoms similar to the debilitating symptoms of “Gulf War syndrome” reported by many veterans of the 1991 Gulf War, which some believe is related to the U.S.’s use of radioactive depleted uranium.
Port Canaveral in Brevard County, Florida, is one of the busiest cargo and cruise ports in the world, with fuel accounting for 75% of the cargo in 2011. It is also a naval port adjacent to the U.S. strategic ballistic missile nuclear submarine base, as well as close to U.S. Air Force facilities and NASA’s Kennedy Space Center. As such, Port Canaveral is critical to America’s national security.
Americans recently learned of how our national security was compromised by the Obama administration’s and then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s approval of the Uranium One deal that gave Russia 20% of our uranium reserves.
In an op/ed for The Washington Times on Nov. 23, 2017, retired U.S. Navy admiral and commander in chief of the U.S. Pacific Fleet James A. Lyons alerts us to another security compromise by the Obama administration — the 35-year lease of Port Canaveral with no security review to the Middle East company Gulftainer, which Admiral Lyons calls a “serious security compromise” to both the Port and its adjacent military infrastructure.
Gulftainer is co-owned by the Iraqi Jafar family and the emir of Sharjah in the United Arab Emirates. Gulftainer is also connected to the Russian-controlled Rostec firm that owns 100% of Rosoboronexport, the exporter of Russia’s Club-K container cruise missile system. The system looks like a typical commercial shipping container, which means it can be transported around the United States carrying missiles that can be remotely activated by satellite.
According to Jerome Corsi, in a World Net Daily article, the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) — which should have reviewed the Port Canaveral lease — was bypassed by President Obama’s Treasury secretary, Jack Lew, who previously was Bill Clinton’s chief of staff.
Mr. Lew’s decision may have been further enabled by Aimen Nabi Mir, his designated staff chairman for CFIUS (2009-14). Mr. Mir is the son of a Pakistani immigrant from Kashmir who has ties to the Pakistani Intelligence Service. Mr. Mir himself served twice as the head of the Islamic Society of North America’s (ISNA) youth wing.
It will be recalled, ISNA not only is a Muslim Brotherhood front group, but was listed by the Department of Justice as an unindicted co-conspirator in the 2008 Holy Land Foundation Hamas terror funding trial. It was during Mr. Mir’s CFIUS tenure that both the Gulftainer deal and the Uranium One deal were allowed to slip through.
Gulftainer is co-owned by Hamid Jafar and his brother Jafar Dhia Jofa, Saddam Hussein’s nuclear weapon mastermind and the emir of Sharjah. By way of character reference, Mr. Jafar was on U.S. Central Command’s hit list and could be engaged at any time as a legitimate military target during Operation Iraqi Freedom. Working for Saddam Hussein and in close collaboration with the Russians, Mr. Jafar’s succeeded in designing the “Beach Ball,” a miniaturized nuclear warhead that can fit on the Club-K cruise missile.
A model of North Korea’s miniaturized nuclear weapon appears very similar to Mr. Jafar’s Beach Ball and was seen in a 2017 photo with Kim Jong-un.
The fact that the Iraqi Jafar family is in a joint venture with Russia’s Rostec should have raised red flags all over the place, but that was not going to be allowed to happen. You have to ask, what were the FBI and our intelligence agencies doing? Were they complicit in behind-the-scenes negotiations for the lease?
Russia’s Club-K container cruise missile launch system looks like a normal intermodal commercial container. It can be loaded with four Sizzler cruise missiles or four Switchblade cruise missiles. These missiles can carry biological, chemical, electromagnetic pulse, conventional or nuclear warheads.
Since the Club-K container looks like a typical commercial shipping container, it can be shipped around the country by train, semi-trucks and riverine boat. More troubling yet is the fact that it can then be activated remotely by satellite.
As Roger Aronoff stated in a Jan. 5, 2017 article, approval of the 35-year lease to Gulftainer is a clear case of malfeasance and comes at the expense of our national security and American safety. The Center for Security Policy paper by Alan Jones and Mary Fanning shows that Gulftainer’s parent company, the Crescent Group, is also connected to Iraq’s illicit nuclear weapons program under Saddam Hussein.
Additionally, Hamid Jafar is founder and chairman of the Crescent Group, the parent firm of which Port Canaveral’s Gulftainer USA is a subsidiary. His brother, Jafar, Saddam Hussein’s nuclear scientist, is the CFO of Crescent’s URUK Engineering and Contracting subsidiary.
Not surprisingly, there is a Clinton connection to the Crescent Group. Majid Jafar, brother of the head of the Crescent Group and Mr. Jafar’s nephew, co-chairs with Bill Clinton the Business Backs Education Campaign, which was launched in 2014, the same year that the UAE made its first donation to the Clinton Foundation. The campaign is funded by the Varkey GEMs Foundation, which paid Bill Clinton $5.6 million to serve as honorary chairman. He didn’t even have to give a speech.
The bottom line is that we don’t know how many Club-K missile containers have been or might one day be shipped through Port Canaveral. Even one could cause incalculable damage. In view of the seriousness of the threat, however, and the fact that the 35-year lease was never subjected to a security review, it must be immediately suspended and eventually canceled.
The port’s container facilities must be returned to full U.S. control. Further, we must devise a system that is able to identify these missile containers and neutralize them. We must also investigate how Mr. Aimen Nabi Mir was able to obtain a security clearance and whether he is still at the Treasury Department.
The House Armed Services Committee’s Subcommittee on Emerging Threats and Capabilities will review the 35 year lease of the Port Canaveral Cargo Container Terminal. The Subcommittee’s recommendation is expected by March 2018, at which time the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) will review the lease and make a recommendation to President Trump who, it is hoped, will cancel the lease.
