Iranian scientist credited with masterminding past covert nuclear weapons program assassinated: senior official

An Iranian scientist who Israel has credited with masterminding the Islamic Republic’s now-defunct covert military nuclear program was assassinated outside Tehran on Friday, Iran's top diplomat confirmed. 

"Terrorists murdered an eminent Iranian scientist today," Iran's Foreign Minister Javad Zarif said in a tweet. Zarif said Israel was likely to blame but did not provide evidence.

Mohsen Fakhrizadeh's killing comes as Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu publicly pressures President-elect Joe Biden not to rejoin the 2015 Iran nuclear deal.

President Donald Trump withdrew the U.S. from the accord in 2018. 

Initially, there were conflicting reports over whether Fakhrizadeh survived the assault. It took place as the car he was traveling in east of Iran's capital came under machine gunfire, according to Iranian state TV and the country's semi-official Fars news agency.

Witnesses also heard the sound of an explosion. A wounded Fakhrizadeh was later taken to a local hospital along with several of his bodyguards, the agency said.

There were no immediate claims of responsibility.

Iranian state TV said more information would be provided later. A statement by Iran’s armed forces said Fakhrizadeh died from his injuries while in the hospital. 

Israel's government declined to immediately comment on the reports about Fakhrizadeh, whom Israeli diplomats often refer to as Iran's "father of the bomb." During a news conference, Netanyahu once said of Fakhrizadeh: "Remember that name." 

Trump abroad:His fiercest critics say he may have gotten some world affairs right

Israel has long been suspected of carrying out targeted killings of Iranian nuclear scientists nearly a decade ago to halt its suspected military nuclear program.

The nuclear pact Trump abandoned was negotiated under President Barack Obama in 2015 and some Iran experts, former diplomats and even senior Iranian officials speculated that Fakhrizadeh's killing could be part of a concerted attempt to sabotage any fresh diplomacy between Iran and the incoming Biden administration. 

Biden has said he wants to revive the accord, under which Iran agreed to curbs on its nuclear program in exchange for relief from international sanctions.

"It's not unlikely that this targeted killing was part of efforts to prevent the Biden administration from reviving diplomacy with (Iran) and going back to the nuclear agreement," said Carl Bildt, Sweden's former prime minister, on Twitter.

Hossein Dehghan, a senior military adviser to Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, also took to Twitter to offer a theory. "In the last days of the political life of their ally (Trump) ... (Israel) seeks to intensify pressure on Iran and create a full-blown war," he said. 

John Brennan, who served as CIA director during the Obama administration, slammed Fakhrizadeh’s killing as “a criminal act and highly reckless” and urged Iranian leaders to refrain from retaliating.

"It risks lethal retaliation & a new round of regional conflict,” Brennen wrote on Twitter. “Iranian leaders would be wise to wait for the return of responsible American leadership on the global stage & to resist the urge to respond against perceived culprits.”

There is no indication the White House knew beforehand of the assassination plot. 

Requests for comment from the U.S. National Security Council, U.S. State Department and the U.S. Department of Defense were declined. A spokesman for Biden's transition team also declined to comment.

But Trump on Friday did retweet a newspaper article about Fakhrizadeh's assassination along with some comments by an Israel writer named Yossi Meman who claimed Fakhrizadeh's death "is a major psychological and professional blow for Iran."

Trump authorized the assassination of Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani last year by drone strike when the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corp commander was in Baghdad. 

Iran has vowed to take revenge for Soleimani's killing. The one-year anniversary of his death is in January. 

However, so far Iran has exercised relative restraint. 

It has remained in the nuclear pact with world powers – with loosened compliance – despite the U.S. withdrawal and maintained it is theoretically open to resuming the deal with U.S. participation.

Fakhrizadeh was a Brigadier General in Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps. He led Iran’s so-called "Amad," or "Hope," program. Israel has alleged it was a military operation to probe the feasibility of building a nuclear weapon in Iran. Tehran long has maintained its nuclear program is peaceful.

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) says that "Amad" program ended sometime around 2003. IAEA inspectors now monitor Iranian nuclear sites as part of the now-unraveling nuclear agreement with world powers.

The IAEA concluded earlier this month that Iran’s uranium stockpile is now 12 times larger than permitted under the nuclear accord that Trump withdrew from. 

Mark Dubowitz, the chief executive of Foundation for Defense of Democracies, a Washington, D.C.-based think tank that espouses a hardline on Iran, said Fakhrizadeh was "the most critical player in Iran’s nuclear efforts" and his removal has "enormous implications for whether Iran can continue to move forward without his know-how."

Dubowitz said the attack "certainly has the hallmarks of an Israeli operation" and noted that Fakhrizadeh had been on Israel’s target list for many years.

He said it’s not clear if the U.S. had any role in the attack, but it’s likely the CIA at least got a heads up about the operation. 

"I would imagine there was some information sharing or even more extensive cooperation," he said, especially given the strong relationship between CIA Director Gina Haspel and her Israeli counterpart, Yossi Cohen, head of Israel's Mossad spy agency.

{UAH} Federal appeals court denies Trump campaign effort to revive Pennsylvania lawsuit saying 'claims have no merit'

Friends

 

This is a very strange reporting by CNN, for it glows the Fraudlent's side but leaves out the facts. This court is a Federal court and I think the first federal court these arguments have reached. So we have all along been walking through Democrats controlled courts, until this Federal court that has a Democrats majority. The very minor detail that the reporting leaves out is that this argument actually clears this case to the Supreme court. Playing in courts you control as a Democrat is actually good but using that premise in a Federal court is a self-injury. I will be very surprised if Pennsylvania fraud does not knock on the door of the supreme court, and Donald is  going to take Pennsylvania.

 

What is the problem of Donald today is actually not winning the stolen states but time is his enemy, for as Democrats drag these cases through courts certification is taking place, and we might actually end up with a firkin fraud in The White House.

 

Let us chat again when we are in the Supreme Court.

{UAH} Uganda is using Huawei’s facial recognition tech to crack down on dissent after anti-government protests

Uganda is using Huawei's facial recognition tech to crack down on dissent after anti-government protests

REUTERS/TIKSA NEGERI
Keeping an eye on you: Uganda's president Yoweri Museveni
November 27, 2020

Long before the Nov. 18-19 protests in Uganda that left more than 50 people dead, opposition politicians, and local activists had warned about the potential abuse and human rights implications of an invasive surveillance system bought by the government last year from China's telecoms giant Huawei.

The fear was, that in the hands of corrupt public officials or under a repressive regime the integrated system which uses facial recognition and other artificial intelligence systems but is also able to check vehicle license plates and monitor social media, would be used to suppress individual freedoms of anyone in opposition to the government.

The latest protests, which were triggered by the arrest of two presidential candidates hoping to put a halt to president Yoweri Museveni's 34-year rule, seem to have confirmed those fears.

Ugandan police officials have confirmed they are using the cameras supplied by Huawei which helped the force track down some of the more than 836 suspects they have arrested.

In the absence of any judicial oversight, there are also concerns of backdoor access to the system for illegal facial recognition surveillance on potential targets and stifling of anti-regime comments and any peaceful civil action. Local rights group, Unwanted Witness, has previously called for the observance of international human rights law in the implementation of the project to safeguard human rights, freedoms, and democracy in the country.

The national CCTV system installed by Huawei has 83 monitoring centers, 522 operators, and 50 commanders according to president Museveni who in a series of tweets has praised the effectiveness of the technology.  Authorities also plan to integrate the Huawei system with other Ugandan agencies including the tax body and the immigration department. In Jan. 2020, authorities started rolling out the second phase within 2,319 mapped countryside municipalities and major towns.

A Quartz Africa source with the knowledge of the police operations says Huawei staff and other "experts" from China are still in the process of installing an "integrated" system part of a classified contract between the authorities in Kampala and Huawei to supply and install surveillance equipment in cities and towns throughout Uganda.

In 2019, Ugandan police officials confirmed the government had paid at least $126 million as part of the deal which is more than the combined 2020 budgets ($108 million) of the ministries of ICT and Science & Technology ministries.

Local and international rights groups say footage from the Huawei surveillance cameras has been used since 2019 to monitor political rallies and other events of  president Museveni's opponents. The unregulated surveillance is characterized by pervasive location monitoring, facial recognition, biometric, and blanket data retention practices among others.

Unlike in the West where there are security concerns about a Chinese company dominating 5G technology, Huawei has been broadly welcomed by African governments. Here it has played a key role in helping to build the telecoms infrastructure needed for a 21st century economy in several countries. But more recently its roles have expanded to other projects such as security for governments who are so inclined.

Ahead of the 2016 polls, president Museveni's government procured the services of a UK-based firm, Gamma Group, which delivered a surveillance technology reportedly used to spy on Museveni's opponents in an operation dubbed "Fungua Macho".

A Wall Street Journal investigation last year suggested the government in Kampala used assistance from Huawei to hack into messages for the presidential candidate Robert Kyagulanyi, better known as Bobi Wine, prompting his arrest and detention. Bobi Wine, a popular musician who was elected to parliament in 2017, is extremely popular with young Ugandans and has been a thorn in the side of the Museveni establishment.

By Tim Reid

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - A recount in Wisconsin's largest county demanded by Republican President Donald Trump's election campaign ended Friday with Democratic President-elect Joe Biden gaining votes.

After the recount in Milwaukee County, Biden had a net gain of 132 votes, out of nearly 460,000 cast. Overall, Biden gained 257 votes to Trump's 125.

Trump's campaign had demanded recounts in two of Wisconsin's most populous and Democratic-leaning counties, after losing Wisconsin to Biden by over 20,000 votes. The two recounts will cost the Trump campaign $3 million. Dane County is expected to finish its recount on Sunday.

Overall, Biden won the Nov. 3 U.S. presidential election with 306 Electoral College votes - many more than the 270 needed for victory - to Trump's 232. Biden also leads by more than six million in the popular vote tally.

After the recount ended, Milwaukee County Clerk George Christenson said: "The recount demonstrates what we already know: that elections in Milwaukee County are fair, transparent, accurate and secure."

The Trump campaign is still expected to mount a legal challenge to the overall result in Wisconsin, but time is running out. The state is due to certify its presidential result on Tuesday.

{UAH} Gov’t to operationalize 117 seed secondary schools

Ik Seed Secondary School. File Photo

Kampala, Uganda | THE INDEPENDENT | The Ministry of Education and Sports has started a process to operationalize new 117 seed secondary schools that had been stalled over the last years.

Patrick Muinda, the Ministry of Education spokesperson notes that more than 41 Billion Shillings has been allocated in the current financial year budget to cater for costs for wages for staffing of the schools.

"The budget also covers ICT equipment, chemical reagents and science kits. The ministry is currently validating the seed schools to inform the recruitment exercise for staff," a written response from Muinda reads in part.

Sam Kuloba, the commissioner of government secondary schools notes that all the newly constructed schools are to receive teachers by January 2020 in the time for the new school year. Kuloba has also issued out a circular calling local government to prepare the relevant documentation for the process.

"Permanent Secretary issued out a circular guiding the recruitment of teachers for the above schools. As per the circular, there is a need to generate information from the respective schools to inform the development recruitment guidelines," says Kuloba.

Construction of the majority of the schools in question started in 2018 under the Uganda Inter-Government Fiscal Transfer Programme phase 1. However, the construction process was challenged by woes within local governments as authorities disagreed on areas where the schools could be built. In other areas, the contractors delayed reaching on-site. But Muinda notes that the majority of the schools are expected to be ready in December.

Major delays have been experienced in the districts that include Ntungamo, Mbarara, Gulu, Nwoya, Amuru and Omoro but officials at the ministry say they are closely following up the issue on a case by case basis to ensure that all sites are ready for handover by December.

The operationalization of the 117 secondary schools is in line with the government's effort to extend secondary education to all Ugandans by having at least one school in each sub-county.

Statistics from the Education Ministry indicate that 615 sub-counties in Uganda have no government secondary schools. However, the government has approved two different loans from the World Bank which will see the construction of more schools to reduce the burden.

{UAH} JOE BIDEN IS NOT GOOD FOR AFRICA

Summary: Biden was clearly elected by the vibrant and enterprising American people whom I love and respect so much. So it is fair to say that let him preside over them, not the rest of us.

The Independent, November 27, 2020.

By Mr. Hussein Lumumba Amin |

With all due respect, it is quite concerning to hear US President-elect Joe Biden boldly roar that "America is back and ready to lead the world again!".

Biden made the remarks this week as he was explaining the role of the team that he has selected to formulate his administration's foreign policy.

He is saying this without even feeling the slightest discomfort at any probable arrogance, utter boisterousness and disrespect that it might echo to the over 8 billion other humans in their own countries on this planet, who will be affected by his foreign policy decisions.

While such words sound like coming straight from the centuries of empire and colonialism, psychologist might find the same undiagnosed attitude being behind the disproportionately high number of disturbing incidents of police brutality against black people and people of color in the US. It possibly finds fertile ground in a certain patriarchal or patronizing view regarding ones role in society or in the world vis-a-vis "others".

I thought democracy meant that we the people choose our leaders and our destiny. But the peoples of the world did not elect Mr. Joe Biden or America to lead them, did they?

Mr. Biden was clearly elected by the vibrant and enterprising American people whom I love and respect so much. So it is fair to say that let him preside over them, not the rest of us.

The outgoing US President at least left Africa to handle its own affairs

Clearly the globalists over-reach is back. And they are confirming the worst fears of many in all corners of the world by immediately and unashamedly asserting claim to the planet.

If I may speak on behalf of those around the world who did not have their say in the US election, for the last four years we were told not to interfere. Therefore we definitely did not get to choose Biden or anyone from his country to lead us, or make decisions on our behalf.

So we kindly ask him (or any other aspiring globalist) to please respect not only their clearly stipulated constitutional mandate toward their people and their country, but also have the utmost consideration and respect for the will of our own peoples and their sovereignty over their own countries.

In this day and age, where already a fifth of the new millennium passed, one should not feel comfortable thinking it is ok to tell almost eight billion sovereign human beings around the planet that he or she is now ready to lead them with or without their consent.

What I know about peoples in Africa, the Middle East, South America, Asia and even millions across Europe, is that while we all appreciate advice, assistance, partnerships and pragmatic cooperation, we need every leader regardless of their nations financial or military might, to be humble enough to focus themselves to their constitutional mandate.

They should focus within their jurisdiction, and leave the rest of us alone to our own self-chosen destinies and human dignity unless called upon respectfully, diplomatically and in good faith to work together on matters like climate change, Corvid-19, trade, corruption, human rights, women's emancipation, terrorism, education, refugees, peace-keeping, conflict resolution, and/or economic development for example.

God bless us all!

{UAH} Donkey of the week: ASP Byaruhanga

Annet, 

Toilet paper is one of the most useful items in a good home. 

I wish you were in North America when COVID-19 struck and lockdown declared, one of most sought after and bought was toilet paper. Most people stocked toilet paper in March so much that it may last for one year. Why? Because toilet paper is very useful. 

So, if those 5 "O" are toilet papers, they are very important to Museveni. 

Look at it this way, just go to the washroom and see no toilet paper, tell me what you feel.

John, 

Not always true. Where do the following come from: Okoth Ogola, Odoi,  Ofwono Opondo,  Owana, Wanyama, Lumumba?

 The last time I checked they were said to be easterners, maybe they are disguised. Or they are members of a "political tribe?"

you can see why the dictator loves tribalsim. it is the only policy he is surviving. all DPCS AND RPCS are people from his  close tribes. he feels safer when they are in charge and he orders them  to do what he wants. definitely if he put oketa DPC,he is not sure he will carry out his orders. so every district and region has those guys,one DPC AND RPC.in addition he adds RDC and they cause havoc
