US has made no 'final conclusion' on Khashoggi killing: State Department
[Al Jazeera] The United States government has not reached a final conclusion over Khashoggi's killing, the US State Department has said.

"Recent reports indicating that the US government has made a final conclusion are inaccurate," State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said in a statement on Saturday.

The statement followed reports in the US media that the CIA had held Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman
...Crown Prince of Soddy Arabia
...a kingdom taking up the bulk of the Arabian peninsula. Its primary economic activity involves exporting oil and soaking Islamic rubes on the annual hajj pilgrimage. The country supports a large number of princes in whatcha might call princely splendor. When the oil runs out the rest of the world is going to kick sand in the Soddy national face...
as of 2016....

responsible for the October 2 killing.

"There remain numerous unanswered questions with respect to the murder of Mr Khashoggi," Nauert said in her statement.

"The State Department will continue to seek all relevant facts. In the meantime, we will continue to consult Congress, and work with other nations to hold accountable those involved in the killing of Jamal Khashoggi."

#1  Wise decision. Big development from Papadoupolis Twitter: (SMOM) Joseph Mifsud is tied directly to Christopher Steele and Alexander Downer’s former chief of staff. He was also on Jamal Khashoogi’s payroll.
Perhaps Khashoggi was killed to keep him from testifying about Mifsud, who is clearly the central element tying all of this together. MBS has been instrumental on taking down terrorist financing in the region, straining 'family' ties.

#2  Am I right to think that the CIA finding that MBS was responsible for JK's death was leaked to the press? Strange, trying to keep the pressure on something. What? Seems the deep state is alive and well, just further underground.

British Kurds protest passport confiscations
[Rudaw] More than 7,000 Kurds holding British citizenship are having difficulty renewing their passports because they changed their names, protesters claim. Some have even had their passport confiscated.

The bulk of them had sought asylum in the UK for political reasons and ‐ to protect their identities ‐ had changed their names. Now that they want to renew their passports, the UK Home Office is creating problems.
Saddam Hussein is gone, as is ISIS. Do they still need political asylum, or do they just not want to go home?
Angered by a lack of support from the Home Office and MPs, a contingent of Kurds protested in London’s Parliament square on Saturday.

"I have been living in this country for 19 years now. Due to changing my name, my passport has been confiscated since March. Neither the Home Office nor MPs answer us," protester Ahmed Ali told Rudaw.
That was 1999. Saddam Hussein cannot harm you now, Mr. Ali.
"This government would like to make us angry and force us to return to our own country," he added.
Or nit angry. Geh mit Gott, as the Germans say, aber geh.
Jamal Mustafa, another protester, said: "I am from Kirkuk. During the Baathist era no one dared say his real name. At the time [of arriving in Britannia] we gave our name and address mistakenly not knowing we would face this problem today."
Again, the Baathists are long gone, so there is no reason for you to stay away, Mr. Mustafa. And the country you fled desperately needs trained, English-speaking, internationally connected workers to help rebuild after the twin ravages of the Baathists and ISIS.
Joining the protesters, Ross Greer, a member of the Scottish Parliament, accused the British government of racism.

There is no official data on the number of Kurds living in the UK, as they are classified as Iraqis. Unofficial estimates put their number at around 200,000.

Turkey ‘detains’ academics linked to jailed activist
[DAWN] Ottoman Turkish police on Friday detained over a dozen people including academics from two Istanbul universities linked with an association led by imprisoned human rights
...which are often intentionally defined so widely as to be meaningless...
activist Osman Kavala, a state-run news agency
...and if you can't trust the state-run news agency who can you believe?...

Police issued arrest warrants for 20 people as part of an investigation into Anadolu Kultur (Anatolian Culture) whose chairman Kavala has been locked away
Book 'im, Mahmoud!
for more than a year but not formally charged, Anadolu news agency said.

Twelve had been rounded up so far in simultaneous raids at several addresses early on Friday, it added.

Professor Betul Tanbay of the prestigious Bogazici University and Professor Turgut Tarhanli, deputy dean of the private Bilgi University, were among the detainees.

The academics were linked to Anadolu Kultur.

The operation also targeted Anadolu Kultur executives including deputy chairman Yigit Ekmekci, as well as board member Ali Hakan Altinay, coordinator Asena Gunal and consultants Cigdem Mater and Meltem Aslan, the agency said. It was not immediately clear what charges the detainees face.

Opposition CHP party MP Sezgin Tanrikulu criticised the detentions on Twitter.

"Again a Friday, again detentions... Those who expect normalisation from this regime should continue to dream," he said referring to President Sultan Recep Tayyip Erdogan the First
... Turkey's version of Mohammed Morsi but they voted him back in so they deserve him. It's a sin, a shame, and a felony to insult the president of Turkey...

Great White North
Canada set to get most refugee claims in nearly three decades
As dear Angela Merkel demonstrated, if you invite them, they will come — and in numbers beyond your imagining.
[AlAhram] Canada is on track to receive its highest number of refugee claims since record-keeping began nearly three decades ago, the latest data shows, as the government’s handling of immigration comes under scrutiny ahead of next year’s federal election.

Despite cooler weather, the number of refugee claimants jumped past 6,000 in October, the highest monthly tally this year, the data released on Thursday showed.

That takes total claims in the first 10 months of 2018 to 46,245, putting the country on track to surpass last year’s record even as the quasi-judicial body that adjudicates claims struggles to work through a 64,000-person backlog.

The Immigration and Refugee Board started tracking refugee claimant data in 1989.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s government faces a widely held belief that Canada has been overwhelmed by immigrants colonists pressing asylum claims, even though it receives far fewer than many other countries. The government has struggled to balance Canada’s reputation as a haven for those fleeing persecution with warnings that filing refugee claims is no "free ticket" to remain in the country.

The governing Liberals have come under fire for their handling of the more than 37,000 people who have walked across the Canada-U.S. border seeking asylum since January 2017 ‐ many of whom told Rooters they did not feel safe in President Donald Trump
...New York real estate developer, described by Dems as illiterate, racist, misogynistic, and what ever other unpleasant descriptions they can think of, elected by the rest of us as 45th President of the United States...
’s United States.
The poor darlings were fleeing from the idea that after dcades their temporary refuge was not to be permanent.
About 1,400 crossed the frontier in October, down from 1,600 the month before. But most refugee claimants enter the country by other means, and their numbers are growing.

"There are 65 million refugees in the world, and there are many desperate people trying to find safety and refuge in western countries," said Toronto-based lawyer Lorne Waldman. "I think we’re going to see 50,000-plus (refugee claims annually) for the foreseeable future."
Unless you rescind that invitation, coupled with actively expelling those whose applications have been rejected.
A front man for Immigration and Refugees Minister Ahmed Hussen noted that this year’s budget included an additional C$74 million ($56 million) for the Immigration and Refugee Board "to speed up the processing of asylum claims." The hiring of 248 new staff "is under way," front man Mathieu Genest wrote in an email.

About 56 percent of refugee claims finalized in the first three quarters of 2018 were accepted, according to the Immigration and Refugee Board, with lower acceptance rates for border-crossers.

Border-crossers from Nigeria and Haiti, who made up the largest groups of border-crossers, had relatively low acceptance rates compared with other nationalities, at 29.3 percent and 11.6 percent, respectively.

Canada’s government is trying to hasten the deportations of border-crossers whose refugee claims are not successful, classifying them with criminals as a top deportation priority.
Yes, yes. But how many have actually been escorted out of the country?
The government should also prioritize integration of successful applicants, said Canadian Council for Refugees head Janet Dench, and ensure that tens of thousands of people are not left waiting years for permanent resident status.

"The longer you keep people in this limbo state, the longer before they can contribute fully to Canadian society."

How U.S. Jewish Communities Can Prevent The Next Synagogue Shooter
[Jpost] Post-Pittsburgh, Jewish communities are talking to NY’s top Homeland Security commissioner Roger Parrino, but will they change?
Long and thought-provoking, it makes the Pittsburgh rabbi hiding in a closet to call the police on his cell phone after sending his congregants into hiding look much better than I originally thought.

Police seek court's permission to exhume Maulana Samiul Haq's remains
[DAWN] The investigation team probing the murder of Jamaat Ulema-e-Islam
...the political wing of the Pak Taliban...
-S leader Maulana Samiul Haq
...the Godfather of the Taliban, leader of his own faction of the JUI. Known as Mullah Sandwich for his habit of having two young boys at a time...
has approached Additional District and Sessions Judge, Nowshera, with a request that they be allowed to exhume the dear departed leader's remains and conduct a post-mortem, police officials said.

The request was filed in the court of ADSJ Hidayatullah Khan by Sub-Inspector Jameel of the homicide unit at Rawalpindi's airport cop shoppe.

The application asserts that a post-mortem examination is necessary to investigate the murder and to fulfil the requirements laid down by the law for a murder investigation.

An influential religious scholar and former senator, Maulana Samiul Haq was assassinated at his residence in Rawalpindi on November 2. He was buried in his hometown of Akora Khattak in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa.

Samples have already been taken from his house by the police, including hair of three lengths, a bed sheet with blood on it, three glasses, fingerprints of three separate individuals and a bloodstained kurta. In all, more than 25 different samples collected from the scene of the murder have been sent to the laboratory.

Police experts from the IT department are working on retrieving the data of incoming and outgoing phone calls on the maulana's phone. Police have also been questioning people who had been in telephonic contact with Haq during the last month, or if they had been called by the JUI-S chief himself.

A sessions judge in Rawalpindi had allowed the police to hand over the body of Maulana Samiul Haq to his family, which contended that "Sharia does not allow the post-mortem of a Moslem’s body".

Names of Taji Khokhar, son added to Fourth Schedule
[DAWN] The names of Taji Khokhar and his son Farrukh Khokhar have been added to the Fourth Schedule of the Anti-Terrorism Act. With the new addition, the number of people on the list from Islamabad is now 23, including a man who died a few years ago.

After the father and son were released from prison on bail, the interior ministry placed them on the Fourth Schedule, which has been conveyed to the National Counter Terrorism Authority (Nacta).

"Most of the people on the Fourth Schedule are from religious segments or nationalists as they incite people against the state or spread violence. The Khokhars were put on the list because they are prominent land grabbers. Taji Khokhar uses henchmen to keep the locals, mostly in the rural areas, under his influence," an official of the interior ministry said.

Trade activities remain paralysed at Torkham
[DAWN] Trade activities at the Torkham border remained paralysed on the second consecutive day on Friday as negotiations between the protesting custom clearing agents and officials of the custom department ended without any breakthrough.

A local clearing agent, Naseeb Khan, told this correspondent that hundreds of trucks loaded with a variety of trade goods remained stranded on both sides of the border as the customs officials could not convince the protesting clearing agents and transporters on ending their strike.

He said that the official team assured the delegation of clearing agents that their immediate grievances regarding bottlenecks in goods clearance would be removed at local level while other demands related to the federal government would be taken up with the concerned officials in Islamabad.

Mr Naseeb said that the clearing agents and transporters insisted on acceptance of all their three demands, claiming that they had incurred big losses due to unprofessional attitude of both the custom officials and staff of the National Logistics Cell.

The Hamas commander who kept a low profile
[Ynet] Nour Baraka, who oversaw Khan Yunis for Hamas, the braying voice of Islamic Resistance®,, grew suspicious when he spotted the undercover Israelis in a van near his home. He went to investigate and was killed in the firefight that ensued on Sunday night.

Even the neighbors of Nour el-Deen Baraka didn't know what he really did. He completed his master's degree in comparative Sharia law only this year after a period of intense study and memorization of the Koran. The group of uniformed men that generally accompanied him might have given his neighbors a clue of his other, more valuable role.

Nour Baraka, 37, married with four children, was known for keeping a low profile. He lived in the family house in Bani Suheila, east of Khan Yunis‐not far from where Hamas leaders Muhammad Dahlan and Yahya Sinwar were raised.

Nour Baraka was the commander of the Khan Yunis Brigade of the Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of Hamas, and was also put in charge of the Khan Yunis tunnels.

But the most famous of the Baraka family is actually his brother, Dr. Suleiman Baraka, a space scientist and astronomer, who studied in Egypt and Leb, moved to the United States to complete his doctorate, worked for NASA and won prestigious prizes in Gay Paree and Washington. In 2008, after his 11 year-old son was killed in an Israeli operation in Gazoo, Dr. Baraka stopped his work and returned to Gazoo.

Recently, Suleiman gave a speech at a Paleostinian TED event and received loud applause from the Gazook audience as he recounted his life-story in the Arab world. He described how in Syria he was suspected of being a Paleostinian spy, how they were sure that he was a Zionist spy in Leb after seeing an Israeli stamp on his passport, how he had not managed to reach Australia and how he had almost settled in despair in Libya. "But in the end, like my brother Nour, I belong to the Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades," he said.

On the day of the incident, Nour returned from a "work tour" in the north of Khan Yunis and entered his house. According to reports in Gazoo, he identified "something suspicious" when he spotted a Volkswagen outside his window. He questioned the Israeli passengers, was not satisfied with their answers, and then the weapons were drawn and the shooting began.

According to reports on social media and news outlets in Gazoo, two Israelis from the Volkswagen dressed in women's clothing were the ones who shot up Nour Baraka.

, notorious for carrying al-Qaeda press releases. The name means the Peninsula, as in the Arabian Peninsula. In recent years it has settled in to become slightly less biased than MSNBC, in about the same category as BBC or CBS...

TV correspondent Wa'il Dahdouh air images on Monday of what was left of the Volkswagen used by the Israelis before they fled. "This is far beyond killing or taking captive a Paleostinian, the Israelis planned something much bigger here, and did not succeed," he said.

'Of Fathers and Sons,' a bleak look at children training for jihad
The two-minute trailer can be watched at the link.
[Rudaw] A group of children giggle as they play in a dusty, barren landscape near their home in northern Syria, but this is no ordinary game of catch, for their ball is a live bomb.

The macabre game of chicken is one of the most blood-chilling scenes in "Of Fathers and Sons," filmmaker Talal Derki's disturbing new expose on the grip of Islamism in his native Syria.

"This is the scene that broke my heart," Derki told AFP in an interview in Los Angeles this week, recalling the blood-chilling episode.

Trump: Sending cleric to Turkey ‘not under consideration'
WASHINGTON (AP) ‐ President Donald Trump says extraditing a Turkish-born Muslim cleric blamed by Turkey for engineering a 2016 military coup attempt is "not under consideration."

Fethullah Gulen (FEH’-too-lah goo-LEN’) has lived for nearly 20 years in self-exile at an Islamic retreat in the Pocono Mountains. He denies the allegations made by the government of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan (REH’-jehp TY’-ihp UR’-doh-wahn). The U.S. has told Turkey it must present convincing evidence for any extradition proceeding to go forward.

Trump tells reporters that "we are always looking at whatever we can do for Turkey," and he says the U.S. is "having a very good moment" with Turkey following Turkey’s recent release of a detained American pastor.

Trump is praising Erdogan as "a strong man," ″a tough man" and "a smart man."

There appears to be no remission from the "telling of stories they think want to be heard"

Compulsive vs. Pathological Liars

Out-of-control lying is known as compulsive or pathological lying. Definitions are fluid, experts say.

Compulsive liars have a need to embellish and exaggerate, says Paul Ekman, PhD, a professor emeritus of psychology at the University of California in San Francisco and the author of Telling Lies, among other books. "They tell the stories they think want to be heard," he says. When you ask a compulsive liar for an opinion on an important issue, says Dr. Ekman, they’re likely to say something like this: "You know, you made a really wise choice in asking my opinion. Many people do. I've actually been asked by the governor of California to comment on this."

#3  *SIGH* These people seem to have a problem distinguishing between "feasibility studies" and "organizing to implement plans". One is a gedankenexperiment, German for "thought experiment" and the other is the Last stage before giving the troops the "Ready!Set!Go!" order.
...Or maybe they don't and are just fabulists stirring up crap for personal gain.
