Kuwait ruler, longtime diplomat Sheikh Sabah, dies at age 91
2020-09-30
Let's see how this shakes out
[AYPEE] Sheikh Sabah Al Ahmad Al Sabah, the ruler of Kuwait who drew on his decades as the oil-rich nation’s top diplomat to push for closer ties to Iraq after the 1990 Gulf War and solutions to other regional crises, died Tuesday. He was 91.In a Middle East replete with elderly rulers, Sheikh Sabah stood out for his efforts at pushing for diplomacy to resolve a bitter dispute between Qatar
...an emirate on the east coast of the Arabian Peninsula. It sits on some really productive gas and oil deposits, which produces the highest per capita income in the world. They piss it all away on religion, financing the Moslem Brotherhood and several al-Qaeda affiliates. Home of nutbag holy manYusuf al-Qaradawi...
and other Arab nations that continues to this day.

His 2006 ascension in Kuwait, a staunch U.S. ally since the American-led war that expelled occupying Iraqi troops, came after parliament voted unanimously to oust his predecessor, the ailing Sheikh Saad Al Abdullah Al Sabah, just nine days into his rule.

Yet as Kuwait’s ruling emir, he struggled with internal political disputes, the fallout of the 2011 Arab Spring protests and seesawing crude oil prices that chewed into a national budget providing cradle-to-grave subsidies.

"He represents the older generation of Gulf leaders who valued discretion and moderation and the importance of personal ties amongst fellow monarchs," said Kristin Diwan, a senior resident scholar at the Arab Gulf States Institute in Washington who studies Kuwait. "No question he has suffered from the lack of deference and respect shown by the younger and more brash young princes holding power today."

State television announced his death after playing Koranic prayers, with Royal Court Minister Sheikh Ali Jarrah Al Sabah reading a brief statement, his hands shaking.

"With great sadness and sorrow, the Kuwaiti people, the Arab and Islamic nations, and the friendly peoples of the world mourn the death of the late His Highness Sheikh Sabah Al Ahmad Al Jaber Al Sabah, emir of the state of Kuwait who moved to the realm of the Lord," the sheikh said, without offering a cause of death.
Courtesy of Frank G, ZeroHedge adds:
In the past, 83-year-old Crown Prince Nawaf al-Ahmad al-Sabah, an elder statesman and the deceased emir’s half-brother, has been appointed acting ruler when the Sheikh was indisposed, as per the country’s constitutional law. Sheikh Nawaf has held high office for decades, including top positions. As ruler, his brother pushed a policy of diplomacy to solve regional problems, while also leading the 2017 boycott of Qatar by members of the GCC.

Philippine Police: Arrested Militant Recruited Fighters for IS-Linked Group
2020-09-28
[BenarNews] Philippine police have arrested a man in the Manila area who allegedly recruited fighters for the local branch of the krazed killer group known as Islamic State
...formerly ISIS or ISIL, depending on your preference. Before that they were al-Qaeda in Iraq, as shaped by Abu Musab Zarqawi. They're really very devout, committing every atrocity they can find in the Koran and inventing a few more. They fling Allah around with every other sentence, but to hear western pols talk they're not really Moslems....
, the country’s top cop said Monday.

The suspect, Kevin Madriñan, did not resist arrest when officers raided his hideout in Quezon City on Thursday. Madriñan also goes by the names Ibrahim Abdullah Madriñan and Ibrahim Khalil al-Garaba, national police chief Gen. Camilo Cascolan told news hounds.

Arresting officers seized a handgun, a grenade and cash from the suspect, Cascolan said.

"Background investigation revealed that Madriñan is a Moslem convert who is the contact person and liaison in Luzon of Daulah Islamiyah members," Cascolan said. The Daulah Islamiyah is the local name for the Islamic State (IS).

"He is responsible for the recruitment of Moslem converts and facilitating their travel to Mindanao for training and jihad exposure," the chief said.

Investigators allege Madriñan received orders directly from Abu Turaife, the leader of the Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters
...a MILF splinter group aligned with the Islamic State...
(BIFF), a Death Eater group that operates in the southern Philippines. It is a splinter group of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front, once the country’s largest separatist group that signed a peace deal with Manila and controls a Moslem autonomous region in southern Mindanao Island.

Turaife, who leads a few dozen followers, broke away from the MILF’s chain-of-command after accusing the leaders of selling out when they dropped their independence bid.

A day after Madriñan’s arrest, suspected BIFF holy warriors detonated a homemade bomb along a road in the southern Maguindanao province, killing a Marine and injuring four others.

Lt. Col. Anhouvic Atilano, front man for the Army’s 6th Infantry Division, said members of Marine Battalion Landing Team-5 were on a truck patrolling the highway between Shariff Aguak and Datu Hoffer towns in Maguindanao when the bomb went kaboom! Friday evening.

"It was a terrorist attack, a retaliation because we had an operation against them," Atilano said.

Militants linked to IS were blamed for a siege in 2017 that led to a five-month battle with government forces and left the southern city of Marawi in ruins.

While about 1,200 Death Eaters, security forces and non-combatants were killed in the battle that ended on Oct. 23, 2017, authorities said those who escaped spread across Mindanao in the south and have set out to recruit Moslem fighters across the mainly Catholic country.

The IS-linked holy warriors have been blamed for deadly attacks including the twin suicide kabooms in Jolo last month that left 15 people dead and more than 70 injured.

Exiled Turkish journalist attacked in Stockholm suburb
2020-09-27
[NORDICMONITOR] Swedish-based Ottoman Turkish journalist Abdullah Bozkurt was attacked by three men yesterday near his home in Stockholm, sending him to the hospital for injuries sustained.

Bozkurt and his team of journalists in Sweden run the Nordic Monitor news website which provides exclusive and critical coverage on The Sick Man of Europe Turkey
...the occupiers of Greek Asia Minor...
and exposes the clandestine activities of the notorious Ottoman Turkish intelligence agency.

"Within minutes of leaving my home, one of the three men approached me from behind and unexpectedly knocked me down. As I fell to the asphalt pavement, they started punching me in the face and on the head," Bozkurt said, adding that the perpetrators then bravely ran away.

The Swedish police were called in to investigate the incident while paramedics arrived at the home of the journalist, who was later advised to go to a nearby emergency room for a more thorough check-up.

Bozkurt sustained injuries to the face, head, arms and legs from the violent mostly peaceful attack, which occurred in the middle of the day near a parking place next to his home in the Spånga suburb of Stockholm.

LNA Kills ISIS 'Emir' in Southern Libya
2020-09-25
[LIBYAREVIEW] On Monday, the Spokesman for the Libyan National Army (LNA), Major General Ahmed al-Mismari announced the killing of an ’emir’ of the Islamic State
...formerly ISIS or ISIL, depending on your preference. Before that they were al-Qaeda in Iraq, as shaped by Abu Musab Zarqawi. They're really very devout, committing every atrocity they can find in the Koran and inventing a few more. They fling Allah around with every other sentence, but to hear western pols talk they're not really Moslems....
(IS) in southern Libya.He said that the IS leader was killed during an ambush operation, by LNA forces in the Abd al-Kafi neighbourhood of Sebha, on 14 September. al-Mismari had previously announced that the man was believed to be the leader of IS in Libya, known as Abu Abdullah al-Libi.

After the investigation was completed, and another IS operative was arrested in the Ghadwa area, al-Mismari confirmed the killed assailant was Abu Moaz al-Iraqi, also known as Abu Abdullah al-Iraqi. He is thought to be the leader of IS in North Africa,
Whoa — impressive!
the LNA front man said. al-Mismari pointed out that al-Iraqi entered Libya on 12 September 2014, alongside Abdulaziz Al-Anbari, with forged Libyan passports through The Sick Man of Europe Turkey
...just another cheapjack Moslem dictatorship, brought to you by the Moslem Brüderbund...
At the time, al-Anbari was an emir of IS in Libya. Abu Abdullah was assigned as an assistant to him by ISIS leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. al-Iraqi became the leader of the terrorist organization, after the LNA killed al-Anbari in the eastern city of Derna in 2015. The investigation revealed his identity as Abdullah al-Rabai, an Iraqi Kurd. al-Mismari explained that the Emir of IS in Libya, was killed in a 7-hour battle with LNA forces.

Israel-Palestine-Jordan
Why the criticism of the Israel-UAE-Bahrain deal doesn't hold up
2020-09-19
[JPOST] Here are some of the criticisms that have been leveled lately, and what is right or wrong about them:

This isn’t a peace treaty, because Israel and the UAE and Bahrain were never at war.

This has come up repeatedly from supposedly serious people who are knowledgeable about foreign policy issues. But it’s an extremely superficial argument.

For the 72 years of Israel’s existence, there has been the "Arab-Israeli conflict."

In more recent decades, some have tended to narrow it down to the Israeli-Paleostinian conflict, but the Arab world — with the exception of Egypt and Jordan — never officially backed down from its stance of being in conflict with Israel.

Even if the UAE and Bahrain weren’t independent countries at the time, their stance toward Israel leaned on the Arab League
...an organization of Arabic-speaking states with 22 member countries and four observers. The League tries to achieve Arab consensus on issues, which usually leaves them doing nothing but a bit of grimacing and mustache cursing...
’s "three noes" announced in Khartoum in 1967 — no peace, no recognition, no negotiations — and depended entirely on Israel’s position vis-à-vis the Paleostinians. When the Oslo process seemed like it was going to work out, there were moves toward negotiations; when the Second Intifada broke out, they stopped.

Even as ties between Israel and moderate Sunni Gulf states warmed in recent years, those countries would not officially acknowledge Israel.

As little as five years ago, UAE Ambassador to the US Yusef Al Otaiba had to deny to the media that he had a good relationship with Ambassador to the US Ron Dermer, even though they were quietly working together on opposing the Iran
...a theocratic Shiite state divided among the Medes, the Persians, and the (Arab) Elamites. Formerly a fairly civilized nation ruled by a Shah, it became a victim of Islamic revolution in 1979. The nation is today noted for spontaneously taking over other countries' embassies, maintaining whorehouses run by clergymen, involvement in international drug trafficking, and financing sock puppet militias to extend the regime's influence. The word Iran is a cognate form of Aryan. The abbreviation IRGC is the same idea as Stürmabteilung (or SA). The term Supreme Guide is a the modern version form of either Duce or Führer or maybe both. They hate Jews Zionists Jews. Their economy is based on the production of oil and vitriol...
deal, and the members of the Washington foreign policy establishment could see it with their own eyes.

The agreements that were signed may not be been between countries that had directed tanks or missiles at each other, but they are between countries that were on opposite sides of a decades-long conflict. And in that sense, they most certainly are about making peace.

Beyond that, the idea behind them that the smaller conflict between Israel and the Paleostinians should not have to reverberate through the entire region, when there really are no hostilities between Israel and most Arab countries, is one that will promote peace and stability.

Plus, this is, in a way, more like peace than the agreements with Jordan and Egypt. Previous peace treaties were only about stopping aggression between the countries. It was peace between leaders.

But the Jordanian parliament calls to cancel peace with Israel practically every month, and the country harbors terrorist Ahlam Tamimi, who orchestrated the 2001 Sbarro bombing that killed 15 people and has become a local TV star, while the Egyptian media are laden with antisemitic, anti-Israel messaging.

Those are countries that constantly seek Israel’s help in security, agriculture and other areas, while Israel gets only nonaggression in return.

With the UAE — and to a lesser extent Bahrain — this is peace between peoples that are excited to cooperate with each other. Israeli bankers flew out to the UAE, and Emirati businesspeople are already working on investments in Israel. One is even considering buying Beitar Jerusalem.

One clear sign of this is that UAE Foreign Minister Abdullah bin Zayed spoke in Arabic at the White House. Contrary to the criticism that Arab leaders say one thing in English and another thing to their people, he wanted to send the same message of peace with Israel at home and abroad.

This has been in the works all along, so it’s not a big deal.

Ties between Israel and the UAE been warming for the past two decades or so, with an uptick in the past several years; it’s true. The turning point seems to be the B.O. regime’s Iran deal.

Both Israel and the Gulf states saw the developing agreement as a threat, and worked together behind the scenes to fight it. But these joint efforts were kept under wraps, as noted above.

To highlight the disingenuousness of this criticism, which has been leveled by B.O. regime alumni, among others, here is a quote from then-secretary of state John F. I was in Vietnam, you know Kerry
Former Senator-for-Life from Massachussetts, self-defined war hero, speaker of French, owner of a lucky hat, conqueror of Cambodia, unsuccessful presidential candidate, and utterly failed Secretary of State...
at the Saban Forum in 2016:

"There will be no separate peace between Israel and the Arab world. I want to make that very clear to all of you. I’ve heard several prominent politicians in Israel sometimes say, ’Well, the Arab world is in a different place now, we just have to reach out to them and we can work [out] some things with the Arab world and then we can reach out to the Paleostinians.’

No, no, no and no. I can tell you, I reaffirmed that last week when I talked to the leaders of the Arab community, there will be no advance and separate peace with the Arab world without the Paleostinian process and Paleostinian peace. Everybody needs to understand that. That is a hard reality."

So, no, this isn’t something that was happening all along. The shift in the Middle East prompted by the B.O. regime’s empowerment of Iran, plus the Trump administration’s willingness to look at the region differently, along with efforts by Netanyahu and the courage of Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed al-Nahyan made this new, big thing happen.

The F-35 argument: This is just an arms deal dressed up as peace.

One of the news hounds in the Israeli delegation was surprised to find that whenever he wrote anything about Israel-UAE peace in English, he was bombarded with tweets about the "military-industrial complex."

Trying to convince the Noam Chomsky
...Intellectual and political theorist of a socialist persuasion. He is noted for being so far out in left field he can't see the shortstop on every issue he pushes...
/Howard Zinn/Oliver Stone acolytes is probably a waste of time. But those who are not predisposed to thinking that everything is part of a vast warmongering conspiracy may want to look at the actual facts of the situation.

On the side of the "this is just an arms deal" argument is the fact that these are all parties that view Iran as a threat.

Broadly, Israel and the UAE have always bought weapons from the US. This deal is not going to change that.

More specifically, the issue of F-35s has come up repeatedly in the media. The UAE sought to buy the jets years before it decided to move forward with normalization with Israel, and it has not dropped that request.

Israel is currently the only country in the Middle East that owns those warplanes, and the official position of the government and the IDF is to oppose the sale to any others in the region, as it would weaken Israel’s qualitative military edge. The QME is guaranteed under American law.

Israel, the UAE and the US all say that F-35 or any other arms sales are not, I repeat not, part of this deal. Officials from all three countries have said this publicly and on the record.

And as far as the written agreement goes, this is true.

Does the UAE still want to buy the planes?

Yes, and as its Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Anwar Gargash said this week, it expects that the peace agreement will help. Does the Trump administration want to sell them? Yes.

Did Israel give tacit agreement? In The Jerusalem Post’s assessment, after much digging into the subject, no. But there is someone out there anonymously telling The New York Times

...which still proudly displays Walter Duranty's Pulitzer prize...

otherwise; make of that what you will.

In any case, some Democrats, such as Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz
...Congresswoman from Florida, the abrasive chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee. She has been a politician since 1992, and prior to that was in training as a political science major. Her primary accomplishment seems to be that she's Jewish...
, have already spoke out against the possible F-35 sale, which could take years and will have to be approved by Congress.

Whether or not the UAE gets the jets will probably depend on who is president and who is in Congress next year.

Regardless, it is not an annex to the peace deal, even though it is a related matter.

Israel is supporting nondemocratic countries by making peace with the UAE and Bahrain.

This is one of the most absurd arguments, and yet it is coming from places like the Brookings Institute, where one would think its scholars would know better.

Taken to its logical endpoint, this means that Israel should remain isolated in the Middle East as a point of principle. Because if Israel were to make peace only with democracies, it would be limited to Tunisia, and that’s only in the past decade.

It also ignores the fact that the vast majority of democracies in the world — with the exceptions of Tunisia and Indonesia — have relations with Israel, while it is the dictatorships that do not.

Most countries that do not have ties with Israel are authoritarian. Sudan, an Arab League state that is now emerging from a dictatorship, is actively seeking ties with Israel.

The hypocrisy of leveling this criticism at Israel when nearly every other country in the world has relations with Bahrain and the UAE is incredibly glaring.

And, of course, people want Israel to make peace with the Paleostinians despite the ineffectual Mahmoud Abbas
...aka Abu Mazen, a graduate of the prestigious unaccredited Patrice Lumumba University in Moscow with a doctorate in Holocaust Denial. While no Yasser Arafat, he has his own brand of evil, just a little more lowercase....
and his cohort being far from paragons of democracy.

This is all about boosting Trump and Netanyahu politically.

There is merit to this criticism, as this deal has major political advantages for both.

As Pelosi said this week: "Good for [Trump] for having a distraction on a day when the numbers of people who are affected and the numbers of people who are dying from [coronavirus (aka COVID19 or Chinese Plague)
...the twenty first century equivalent of bubonic plague, only instead of killing off a third of the population of Europe it kills 3.4 percent of those who notice they have it. It seems to be fond of the elderly, especially Iranian politicians and holy men...
] only increases."

Plus, the agreement clearly appeals to Trump’s Evangelical Christian base, whose leaders were at the ceremony in the White House and celebrated the breakthrough.

The Abraham Accords are named after the "common ancestor Abraham" and call "to foster in the Middle East a reality in which Moslems, Jews, Christians and people of all faiths... live in and are committed to a spirit of coexistence, mutual understanding and mutual respect."

This also bolsters Trump’s "dealmaker" image in the run-up to the November presidential election, and he made sure to mock "Sleepy Joe" Biden during his meeting with Netanyahu in the Oval Office.

Netanyahu’s position as a statesman who boosts Israel’s stature on the world stage has only grown stronger in the month since the UAE normalization was announced.

Netanyahu can point to his consistent position that Israel can make peace only through strength and not through concessions, and say that he was right all along with this deal.

However — and this is a major caveat — the political benefits for Trump and Netanyahu only go so far.

For Netanyahu, the timing could not be worse, as Israel heads to a three-week lockdown to try to curb the rise of coronavirus morbidity. Was the agreement celebrated in Israel?

Yes. But it was also overshadowed by people trying to figure out how to juggle their jobs with kids who are stuck at home and preparing for holidays, or people who are going to spend the holiday alone, or people wondering whether their businesses will survive. Netanyahu faced strong criticism for leaving the country for three days while it was in such a crisis, and for not wearing a mask while sitting near Trump in the Oval Office.

And while Trump may have hoped this would distract from coronavirus, it didn’t exactly work. The chyron across the bottom of the screen on CNN
...formerly the Cable News Network, now who know what it might stand for...
during the signing ceremony noted the crowds and lack of masks.

And like Israelis, Americans are dealing with the effects of varying degrees of lockdowns and high numbers of people with the virus.



Plus, the economy is the No. 1 election issue in the US. Foreign policy is low on that list. This is unlikely to actually move the dial very much for Trump.

This isn’t peace without concessions; Israel gave up on illusory sovereignty in the West Bank.

This argument from the Right highlights the weakness of the previous criticism; Netanyahu took a risk with his base in making these agreements on these terms.

This is also an argument that has some merit to it, since Netanyahu had been playing up illusory sovereignty moves for so long.

The Trump peace plan allowed for Israel to apply its laws to up to 30% of Judea and Samaria, including all of the Israeli communities and the Jordan Valley, and for a time it seemed like it was on track to really happen.

But White House senior adviser Jared Kushner was hesitant from day one. When Netanyahu announced he was going to make illusory sovereignty moves immediately after the Trump plan was presented, Kushner put a stop to it, and the Americans never gave the green light. Netanyahu was never going to go ahead without an OK from Washington.

In the end, Israel is getting something concrete in exchange for stopping something theoretical, something that had not happened yet. The opportunity for illusory sovereignty may not come back, even though the US says it’s "suspended" and not totally off the table — but the opportunity might not have actually been there to begin with.

Right-wing critics should note that the Trump administration touted Netanyahu’s acceptance of a Paleostinian state in the framework of its plan, and a map of what Israel’s borders would be. But the Abraham Accords Peace Agreement includes none of that.

It also does not include any mention of settlements at all, let alone the settlement construction freeze some feared, though there has been a de facto freeze for six months, since Netanyahu has not convened the planning committee that could authorize building.

[ALMASDARNEWS] The Libyan National Army (LNA) front man, Major General Ahmed al-Mismari, announced the killing of the emir of the Islamic State
...formerly ISIS or ISIL, depending on your preference. Before that they were al-Qaeda in Iraq, as shaped by Abu Musab Zarqawi.

(ISIS/ISIS/IS/ISIS) terrorist organization in Libya, Abu Abdullah, in a specific operation west of Sabha
...After the Libyan Civil War, Sabha grew in importance as a slave auctioning town. However, an investigation by the National Commission for Human Rights in Libya (NCHRL) revealed that while there was illegal slavery, reports were exaggerated, as slave auctions were rare and not made public. This was a great comfort to everyone but the slaves peddled in secret. The city was later seized by forces loyal to the Libyan National Army (LNA) and its leader Khalifa Haftar in January 2019, probably for its collection of MiG-25 aircraft....
.

According to Mismari, the LNA received information about an Islamic State terrorist cell in the neighborhood Kafi of Sabha, pointing out that the "116th Infantry Battalion clashed with the group in a battle that lasted seven hours straight."

He said, "The battle ended with the elimination of nine gunnies and the arrest of two women, one from Benghazi named Sana Abdul-Hadi Salem, born in 1980, the wife of the ISIS terrorist Othman al-Abbar, who was killed in the operation, and the other woman is the wife of the emir of ISIS in Libya, and she is an Egyptian named Najla Mahmoud Afifi Hussein."

The Libyan National Army front man pointed out that several other people had been arrested, including a Libyan, three Saudis, an Egyptian, a Sudanese, a Nigerian, and another from the Ivory Coast.

Previously, the Libyan National Army killed two Islamic State gunnies in southern Libya, including an Australian national, after a brief clash with the group.

Referring to a recent decision to establish a joint leadership of the Palestinian terrorist organizations, the PIJ leader stated that "important changes" will take place in the Palestinian territories, "especially in the West Bank." Nakhalah added that military structures which belong to the terrorist groups are present there.

"Soon we will develop new equations that may reach joint military action," said Nakhalah, stressing that there is "no binding truce" for the terrorist groups in Gaza and that they are in a "continuous war and conflict at the borders of the Strip."
We knew that, but useful of him to admit it.

Morsi's son killed by lethal injection: Lawyers
2020-09-09
[PRESSTV] A law firm representing the family of Egypt’s late former president Mohammed Morsi concludes that the death of his youngest son, Abdullah, last year was caused by injection of a "lethal substance."

"Information now disclosed appears to confirm that Abdullah was transported in his car a distance of more than 20 kilometers (12 miles) to a hospital after he took his last breath, as a result of having been injected with a lethal substance," said a statement by the London-based Guernica 37 International Justice Chambers.

"He was not transferred to nearby hospitals, intentionally, until after he had died," added the statement cited by the Middle East Eye (MEE) news and opinion website.

The Egyptian government claimed the 25-year-old had died of a heart attack while driving.

The law firm said, "It is quite clear that certain elements of the state were aware of this fact that is only now coming to light."

Prior to his death, Abdullah had named several individuals, including current Interior Minister Mahmoud Tawfiq and Mohammed Shereen Fahmy, the judge who oversaw the Morsi's trial, as "accomplices" in the "liquidation of the martyr, President Morsi."

-Short Attention Span Theater-
Nuristani Sentenced to 6 Months of Home Confinement in US
2020-09-04
Once again shenanigans on President Obama’s watch are cleaned up by President Trump.
[ToloNews] Former Afghan politician Ahmad Yusuf Nuristani was sentenced to three years of probation and six months of home confinement after he "pleaded guilty to theft of public money, admitting he received over $100,000 in government benefits," said Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR) in a statement on Wednesday.

The former provincial governor of Herat
...a venerable old Persian-speaking city in western Afghanistan, populated mostly by Tadjiks, which is why it's not as blood-soaked as areas controlled by Pashtuns...
and former chairman of the Independent Election Commission (IEC) admitted to "concealing and repeatedly lying to the Social Security Administration about his foreign travel and residency," the report said.

The statement said that Nuristani pleaded guilty on December 11, 2019, to theft of public money, admitting that he received over $100,000 in government benefits by concealing foreign travel and residency between July, 2015, and December 2018.

Nuristani admitted that he applied for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) from the Social Security Administration in July 2015, it said, adding that He also acknowledged that he knew an SSI recipient must reside within the United States, and that "he was required to report any travel outside of the United States lasting more than 30 days."

In September 2018, President Ashraf Ghani
...former chancellor of Kabul University, now president of Afghanistan. Before returning to Afghanistan in 2002 he was a scholar of political science and anthropology. He worked at the World Bank working on international development assistance. As Finance Minister of Afghanistan between July 2002 and December 2004, he led Afghanistan's attempted economic recovery until the Karzais stole all the money...
appointed Nuristani to the Meshrano Jirga (upper house of parliament).

Nuristani received SSI at his claimed residence in El Cajon, Caliphornia, an impregnable bastion of the Democratic Party,, while serving as head of Afghanistan’s Independent Election Commission and as an Afghan senator.

"Make no mistake, no one is above the law in Afghanistan or the United States, no matter how prominent or powerful they may be. Our work in this case demonstrates that SIGAR and its partner agencies are fully committed to this principle. Just because someone can get away with criminality in Afghanistan, he or she should not think the same applies here in the United States," said Special Inspector General John F. Sopko.

Nuristani was head of the IEC from August 2013 to March 2016 and was heading the election commission during the controversial 2014 presidential polls which ended up with the shared National Unity Government.
