SYRIA: Believe in Aleppo, Real Syrians Giving Hope to Real Syrians

21st Century Wire says…
After almost five years of externally enforced division and NATO and Gulf state terrorist occupation of East Aleppo, hope has been restored to the people of Aleppo, not by the same external forces under the faux humanitarian pretext, but by the people of Syria themselves.
Kevork Almassian of Syriana Analysis explained what happened today, in Aleppo:
‘This event was organized by the Junior Chamber International of Syria (31-3-2017), aiming to restore hope to the civilians and help them return to their city. Hundreds of Aleppi civilians attended the event, enjoyed the beautiful weather, singing and dancing in front of their proud Citadel.’

VETERAN AP REPORTER CLAIMS WAPO STORY ABOUT REX TILLERSON ORDERING NO EYE CONTACT IS FALSE

Matt Lee, one of maybe the last few official reporters in DC that attempts to hold the State Dept. to account, has openly refuted the claims in a recent Washington Post article that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has instructed employees at the agency not to make eye contact with him or speak to him directly.
Yesterday WAPO reported,
‘Most of [Tillerson’s] interactions are with an insular circle of political aides who are new to the State Department. Many career diplomats say they still have not met him, and some have been instructed not to speak to him directly – or even make eye contact.’

Tillerson Blasts Russia For “Ukraine Aggression” As Germany Slams Trump’s “Unrealistic” NATO Demands

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson tried to reassure America’s nervous European counterparts over Washington’s commitment to NATO on Friday but it didn’t quite work out as expected when he pressed them again to spend more on defense, triggering a sharp rebuke from Germany.
‘As President Trump has made clear, it is no longer sustainable for the U. S. to maintain a disproportionate share of NATO’s defense expenditures,’ Tillerson said at a meeting of allied foreign ministers in Brussels.

More Dangerous Than The NSA? The Massive Spy Agency You Haven’t Heard Of

Authored by Alice Salles via TheAntiMedia.org,
If you’re one of the countless Americans who was distraught to learn of the revelations made by former National Security Agency (NSA) contractor Edward Snowden, the mere idea that there might be yet another agency out there – perhaps just as powerful and much more intrusive – should give you goosebumps.
Foreign Policy reports that the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, or NGA, is an obscure spy agency former President Barack Obama had a hard time wrapping his mind around back in 2009. But as the president grew fond of drone warfare, finding a way to launch wars without having to go through Congress for the proper authorization, the NGA also became more relevant. Now, President Donald Trump is expected to further explore the multibillion-dollar surveillance network.
Like the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and the National Security Agency (NSA), the NGA is an intelligence agency, but it also serves as a combat support institution that functions under the U. S. Department of Defense (DOD).
With headquarters bigger than the CIA’s, the building cost $1.4 billion to be completed in 2011. In 2016, the NGA bought an extra 99 acres in St. Louis, building additional structures that cost taxpayers an extra $1.75 billion.
Enjoying the extra budget Obama threw at them, the NGA became one of the most obscure intelligence agencies precisely because it relies on the work of drones.
As a body of government that has only one task – to analyze images and videos captured by drones in the Middle East – the NGA is mighty powerful. So why haven’t we heard of it before?
The Shadow Agency That Sees It All
Prior to Trump’s inauguration, the NGA only targeted the Middle East or whatever spy satellites orbiting the globe captured. As far as most of us knew, the agency refrained from pointing its ultra-high-resolution cameras toward the United States. That alone may be why the NGA has been able to stay out of scandals for the most part.
