    Havana syndrome: The mysterious illness affecting US spies and diplomats | USA

    b’

    Veteran Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) agent Marc Polymeropoulos did not consider going to Moscow a big deal. He had worked for the agency for 26 years, had experience in the Middle East and Afghanistan and had been shot at more than once. Polymeropoulos xe2x80x93 the newly appointed head of the CIAxe2x80x99s secret operations in Europe and Russia xe2x80x93 visited the Russian capital in December 2017. He was not undercover; he had gone to meet his Russian counterparts and get to know the country better, knowing however that he would be watched at all times.

    On the third night of his trip, he went out to dinner with his colleagues. He remembers that he didnxe2x80x99t drink much: as a spy in a hostile territory you canxe2x80x99t let yourself get drunk, much less believe that you have really seduced an attractive stranger. He returned to the Marriott hotel near the US embassy, where he was staying, and went to bed early. Not long after that, he was hit by an attack of vertigo. He had never experienced anything like it. He woke up at once with a sharp pain in his head and the sound of jackhammers in his ears.

    xe2x80x9cI have been in very difficult situations in my life, but that was terrifying. I had lost control, the room was spinning nonstop; I knew that something bad was happening,xe2x80x9d Polymeropoulos tells EL PAxc3x8dS from his home in Washington. xe2x80x9cWhen I returned to the United States I could barely work two hours a day, I couldnxe2x80x99t drive and I would forget things all the time. Now I continue to have headaches.xe2x80x9d In the summer of 2019, at the age of 50, he retired from the CIA.

    Polymeropoulos is one of around 200 US diplomats, intelligence officers and family members who have been affected by Havana syndrome, a mysterious illness with no known cause and no known treatment that has left dozens of people with neurological damage. US authorities suspect that it could be a microwave attack from enemy states.

    I could barely work two hours a day, I couldnxe2x80x99t drive and I would forget things all the time

    Former CIA agent Marc Polymeropoulos

    Itxe2x80x99s known as Havana syndrome because the first cases were recorded in the Cuban capital of Havana at the end of 2016. Since then, however, more incidents have been detected in Austria, Colombia, Russia, Australia, China and Uzbekistan. Last August, US Vice President Kamala Harris delayed her trip to Vietnam after new suspected cases emerged in the capital, Hanoi. In early October, German police confirmed that they were investigating suspected sonic attacks against the staff of the US embassy in Berlin. And US Congress has just approved a law, supported by both the Democrats and the Republicans, to economically support the victims of Havana syndrome, some of whom have not been able to return to work.

    When John Bolton, the national security advisor in the Trump administration, entered the White House in April 2018, he received news of the first cases of Havana syndrome outside of Cuba, specifically in China. This convinced him that, whatever it was, the condition was not a psychosomatic illness, nor was happening by chance. xe2x80x9cA possibility was that it was some kind of energy weapon, we saw that it was fairly likely that it came from Russia. We know that during the Cold War, the Russians had already tried to overwhelm the communications of the US embassies by directing energy towards them. It could also have been China, but it seems stupid to me that Beijing would do that on its own territory,xe2x80x9d Bolton tells EL PAxc3x8dS. xe2x80x9cThe danger of this is not just for American diplomats, but rather for the whole world, and it should be taken more seriously by the world.xe2x80x9d

    The syndrome started with all the intrigue of a spy film and in a location rife with suspicion. In 2015, the US government reopened its embassy in Havana, a historic step in the thawing of relations between Cuba and the United States. But at the end of 2016, several staff members of the State Department and the CIA, as well as some of their family members on the island, reported suffering a strange illness. The symptoms were described as intense head pressure, headaches and hearing a loud cricket-like sound. Medical exams revealed damage in the brain tissue of some of the victims. The government of then president Donald Trump decided to evacuate all non-essential personnel from the embassy and began to investigate what was then suspected to be a xe2x80x9csonic weaponxe2x80x9d xe2x80x93 a theory that was later ruled out.

    Some scientists argued that what was happening could be a case of mass psychogenic illness. This refers to when a group of people in a situation of stress, as was the case with Cuba, experience the same symptoms by suggestion. In these cases, the symptoms are real but arise from stress or emotional causes, not external ones. Two experts, Robert W. Baloh and Robert E. Bartholomew, published a book supporting this hypothesis called Havana Syndrome: Mass Psychogenic Illness and the Real Story Behind the Embassy Mystery and Hysteria.

    But as time passes and more cases are detected in different areas of the world, this theory is losing ground. One of the last officials to experience Havana syndrome is a CIA officer who traveled to India with William Burns, the director of the intelligence agency. In December 2020, a report from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine found that xe2x80x9cdirected, pulsed radio frequency energyxe2x80x9d was the most likely explanation for these cases, and named Russia as one of the main suspects. The goal may not have been to target individuals, but rather US facilities and their computer systems, and that these attacks ended up affecting the people working there.

    One thing is clear: they are attacks

    Thomas Shannon, former deputy secretary of state

    Thomas Shannon, the deputy secretary of state under the Obama and Trump administration, who retired in 2018, has no doubt that the syndrome is the result of some kind of foreign aggression. xe2x80x9cOne thing is clear: they are attacks,xe2x80x9d he tells EL PAxc3x8dS journalist xc3x8dker Seisdedos. xe2x80x9cThis has to be understood. Although we donxe2x80x99t know exactly what it consists of, they are without a doubt intentional.xe2x80x9d

    This hypothesis is also considered the most plausible by many lawmakers in Washington. But neither scientists nor US authorities can formally rule out other theories. At the beginning of this year, the CIA opened a specific investigation to find the cause of the strange conditions. This team is being led by one of the agents who helped find the terrorist Osama Bin Laden.

    Officially and for logical reasons, the US State Department is saying little about the number of people affected, the security measures established and the progress of the investigation. A spokesperson from the department says that the different public agencies involved are xe2x80x9cworking to try to identify if these incidents can be attributed to a foreign entity and are focused on giving support to those affected.xe2x80x9d

    Mark S. Zaid, a lawyer representing several of the victims, is upset that the condition is still being called Havana syndrome. xe2x80x9cItxe2x80x99s a name that blames the Cubans and no one that I know suspects them. Whatxe2x80x99s more, itxe2x80x99s not a type of attack that began in 2016, itxe2x80x99s a type of attack that dates back to the 1960s.xe2x80x9d Among his clients, he says, xe2x80x9cthere are some who are well, whatever it was they suffered, and have recovered,xe2x80x9d while others are in xe2x80x9cdaily agony,xe2x80x9d suffering from migraines, nausea and vertigo.

    When Marc Polymeropoulos returned to the US, he was treated at the Walter Reed military hospital, which is where the CIA sends most of the agents affected by Havana syndrome. He ended up retiring and focused his efforts in writing, something he describes as xe2x80x9ccathartic. Last summer, he published the book Clarity in Crisis: Leadership Lessons from the CIA. He says: xe2x80x9cOnce itxe2x80x99s worked out who is behind all this, President Biden will be in a difficult situation, because if there is an adversary attacking US officials, sanctions and withdrawing diplomats wonxe2x80x99t be enough, a much stronger response will be needed, but you canxe2x80x99t start a third world war.xe2x80x9d

    For Kamala Harris, a shifting role: Fewer public events with Biden

    b’

    In their first two months in the White House, President Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris were practically inseparable xe2x80x94 Harris traveled with Biden to the Pentagon, sat in the Roosevelt Room when he met virtually with a foreign leader and delivered her own remarks on the administrationxe2x80x99s priorities.

    The proximity fueled a sense that she would be part of an unusual partnership, xe2x80x9cthe Biden-Harris administration,xe2x80x9d as it was branded.

    But nine months in, Harrisxe2x80x99 schedule reflects the life of a more conventional vice president, one who sees the president less often and spends more time selling the administrationxe2x80x99s agenda in roundtables and day trips to reservoirs and classrooms, according to an analysis of her public events by The Times.

    Only about a fifth of the activities listed on Harrisxe2x80x99 public calendar in September and October have involved Biden, compared with roughly three-quarters of them in January and February. This month, Harris has had seven activities with Biden on her public schedule, six of them behind closed doors. At least some of that shift is the result of a decline in COVID-19 restrictions, which kept the leaders closer to Washington in the early months.

    The lone public event this month with Biden came Thursday, when Harris delivered remarks to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial on Washingtonxe2x80x99s Mall.

    In the prior two months, Harris attended one public event with Biden, a wreath-laying ceremony at the Pentagon on Sept. 11. Harris and Biden traveled at separate times that day to commemorate the flight that crash-landed in Shanksville, Pa., even as both paid their respects.

    Harris came into her position with unique expectations as a groundbreaking politician serving the oldest president in history and one who had himself served as President Obamaxe2x80x99s No. 2. Biden in the 2020 campaign told donors he was a xe2x80x9ctransitional candidatexe2x80x9d who was seeking xe2x80x9cto get more people on the bench that are ready to go in.xe2x80x9d The implication, to some, was that Harris would be groomed in the event the 78-year-old Biden either could not fulfill his term or declined to run for reelection in 2024.

    However, White House officials and Harrisxe2x80x99 allies say itxe2x80x99s misleading to read too much into the scheduling shift, or to even call it that. They point out that schedules ebb and flow xe2x80x94 Harris and Biden were together more often in July and August, a period that included public remarks after the Senate passed an infrastructure bill and a series of private briefings during the chaotic withdrawal from Afghanistan. Early in the administration, the officials say, the pair also spent time with each other out of necessity as the nation grappled with a pandemic that severely restricted travel and the size of public events.

    The needs have now changed. With more people vaccinated and its legislative programs in jeopardy, the White House has launched an all-out effort to pass its agenda. That means Harris and Biden are frequently speaking to different groups, sometimes in different states, on the same day.

    xe2x80x9cI donxe2x80x99t really think therexe2x80x99s a whole lot of space between them,xe2x80x9d said Bakari Sellers, a co-chair of Harrisxe2x80x99 presidential campaign and a CNN political commentator who has remained a close ally. xe2x80x9cShexe2x80x99s just being rolled out more.xe2x80x9d

    White House officials said some closed-door meetings and briefings do not make it onto Bidenxe2x80x99s or Harrisxe2x80x99 official schedule, which does not reflect the full breadth of either figurexe2x80x99s daily activity.

    xe2x80x9cThe vice president keeps a busy schedule doing the work of the administration and always in support of the president,xe2x80x9d said Sabrina Singh, a spokesperson for Harris. xe2x80x9cSometimes those events are together, other times apart. Sometimes she is on the road amplifying the agenda of the administration and highlighting the importance of Build Back Better.xe2x80x9d

    Andrew Bates, a spokesman for Biden, added that xe2x80x9cthousands of factorsxe2x80x9d affect their schedules and that itxe2x80x99s common as administrations progress to dispatch the top leaders to different places for efficiency.

    xe2x80x9cThey have a partnership in the mold of the Obama-Biden relationship,xe2x80x9d he said.

    Whatever the reasons the two have spent more time apart, the perception of Harrisxe2x80x99 clout in the administration is in part tied to her proximity. Biden and Harris have said repeatedly that she would be xe2x80x9cthe last one in the roomxe2x80x9d on important decisions.

    xe2x80x9cThe vice presidentxe2x80x99s power and influence is largely derived from their access to, and relationship with, the president,xe2x80x9d said Joel Goldstein, a scholar who has written two books about the vice presidency. xe2x80x9cThat makes the vice president seem more authoritative to other leaders.xe2x80x9d

    Goldstein said he is not surprised that Harrisxe2x80x99 publicly announced events with Biden have declined, after she spent the early months seeking to xe2x80x9ccredentializexe2x80x9d herself by being seen with Biden. For modern vice presidents to be effective, he said, they have to balance face time with the president and visibility elsewhere.

    This month, for example, Harris traveled to Lake Mead in Nevada to discuss climate change and the drought xe2x80x94 key components of Bidenxe2x80x99s legislative agenda. She also flew to Newark to tour a COVID-19 vaccination site, part of the administrationxe2x80x99s effort to convince more Americans to protect themselves from the disease. Next month, she is heading to Paris, her third foreign trip after traveling to Latin America and Asia.

    xe2x80x9cLater on, once you develop an agenda, itxe2x80x99s predictable that youxe2x80x99re going to be outside trying to sell it,xe2x80x9d Goldstein said. xe2x80x9cShexe2x80x99s trying to mobilize support for what the administration is doing.xe2x80x9d

    The lack of public events with Biden may contribute to an overall sense that Harris is not as visible as she was initially. The trips and the roundtables generate less media coverage than the events with Biden. Her standing in polls, with an average of about 42% of voters viewing her favorably, has generally trailed the presidentxe2x80x99s.

    Overall, about 40% of her nearly 500 events have been with Biden, including scores of publicly disclosed lunches and meetings involving the economy, infrastructure or COVID-19. She has also received the Presidentxe2x80x99s Daily Brief xe2x80x94 the nationxe2x80x99s classified intelligence summary xe2x80x94 more than 60 times with Biden in the Oval Office. This regular briefing accounts for about a third of all her events with Biden, according to the analysis.

    As in every administration, Biden and Harris have their own teams of advisors, which can complicate how they gel as leaders. Biden, who was first elected to the Senate in 1972, has had a coterie of advisors for decades while Harris has a small group of people that is largely new to her.

    The former rivals for the Democratic presidential nomination were not especially close, and had to overcome friction on the debate stage, when Biden chose her as his running mate.

    A former Harris advisor, who requested anonymity to discuss the sensitive topic, said he remains concerned by an apparent lack of trust between the Biden and Harris operations and by the sense that xe2x80x9cshe hasnxe2x80x99t been given any all-star portfolio,xe2x80x9d a criticism that White House officials dispute.

    In addition to selling Bidenxe2x80x99s economic and climate agendas, Harris is spearheading efforts to curb Central American migration, which remains at highs not seen in decades, and to lead the fight for voting rights, an area in which congressional Republicans blocked action on Wednesday for the third time this year. White House officials say the tough assignments are signals she has gained trust, while some supporters and outside analysts grumble that they are political losers.

    Kevin Madden, a senior communications aide in Republican Sen. Mitt Romneyxe2x80x99s two presidential runs who is now an independent, said he believes the White House has not figured out how best to deploy Harris.

    xe2x80x9cPart of the problem seems to be that the Biden-Harris relationship is a political partnership thatxe2x80x99s still ripening,xe2x80x9d he said.

    FBI incompetence let Anwar al Awlaki slip away, say retired investigators

    1 Share

    More than 20 years after 9/11, two key investigators who made the case their lives’ work have revealed they are still haunted by the fact that the FBI let the terrorists’ spiritual adviser slip away, only to inspire more deadly attacks in the name of Islam.

    In an exclusive interview, New Jersey criminal investigator Jim Bush and FBI agent Bob Bukowski, who are both retired, told the Washington Examiner never-revealed details about how they pieced together some of the players behind the plot to hijack four commercial planes and kill 2,977 people. But the case that capped the careers of two seasoned investigators brought both triumph and disappointment, and they are only now learning why Imam Anwar al-Awlaki eluded them in the months after the attack.

    “I feel Awlaki was the most important figure in the 9/11 investigation,” Bush said recently, his words tinged with both nostalgia and regret.

    Awlaki was a charismatic radical cleric with a passion for prostitutes and whose fiery sermons could turn peaceful Muslims into cold-blooded killers. Bush and Bukowski were working on a branch of the 9/11 investigation code-named PENTTBOM and based in Paterson, New Jersey. Eleven of the 19 hijackers passed through the Garden State, and the gritty, densely populated city 20 miles west of Manhattan was a hot spot.

    By June 10, 2002, Bush and Bukowski were confident they had enough to nab al-Awlaki, but they were inexplicably told to stand down by the FBI. Between that time and Sept. 30, 2011, when a U.S. drone killed al-Awlaki in Yemen, the imam helped direct some of the world’s most high-profile acts of terrorism. He referred in a video to the so-called “underwear bomber” and Fort Hood gunman Nidal Hasan as his “students,” and a New York subway bombing plot, the thwarted attacks of the “Fort Dix Six,” and multiple attacks in England all bore al-Awlaki’s dastardly fingerprints.

    Years later, Bush and Bukowski finally know the reasons they were prevented from bringing al-Awlaki to justice before he could inspire more followers to kill infidels: incompetence and paintball.

    In the days following 9/11, the PENTTBOM team worked out of Paterson, New Jersey. Its mission was to focus on the hijacking of American Airlines Flight 77, which was slammed into the Pentagon, killing 189. They knew early on that a shadowy cleric had played a key role in the plot, but his identity had been elusive. Nine months after the attack, they showed the American-born al-Awlaki’s photo to Eyad Rababah, who was in a Charlottesville, Virginia, jail, suspected of helping two hijackers get IDs and apartments at the behest of the mysterious imam.

    “We showed the picture, and he sighs, and he looks at it, and he looks at it, and he goes, ‘That’s the guy. That’s the imam,’” Bush recalled the Jordanian-born Rababah saying after seeing a grainy picture provided by the FBI’s Washington, D.C., field office. “It was a 100% identification.”

    “I’m like, ‘Wow, this is it. We‘ve got it,’” Bush recalled. “We had him identified by Eyad. We knew that there was enough to hold Awlaki.”

    AL QAEDA SUCCESSFULLY PLAYED ‘LONG GAME’ IN AFGHANISTAN, FBI AND UN OFFICIALS SAY

    Rababah was a star witness early on, “the first live person that met hijackers,” Bush said. In working backward to find out who helped the 19 dead terrorists, his help was critical. Rababah had turned himself in at the New Haven, Connecticut, FBI field office after learning that Bush and Bukowski were on his trail after tracing him to a forged ID found in one of the hijacker’s cars.

    “I know the FBI is looking for me, and I just want to let you know I did meet two of the hijackers,” he told the FBI. It was just 17 days after the 9/11 attacks.

    In the ensuing months, Rababah would be tied directly to aiding four of the five hijackers from American Airlines Flight 77: Hani Hanjour, who piloted the hijacked plane, Nawaf al Hazmi, Majed Moqued, and Salem Hazmi. While they were the martyrs who died in the name of their twisted cause, the detectives knew they couldn’t have done it alone.

    “You have to look as a detective,” Bush said. “You’ve got to say, ‘How did these guys move around?’ They didn’t speak English. They had to have a network.”

    The investigators first established that the hijackers had stayed in safehouses the detectives traced to Rababah and his Syrian roommate, Daoud Chehazeh. Chehazeh had been arrested just before the Rababah turned himself in. Under questioning over several weeks while he was held on charges of ID fraud, Rababah’s claim of innocence began to unravel. One of the apartments he and Chehazeh shared was near a Falls Church, Virginia, mosque where al-Awlaki preached.

    Despite claiming they “were not religious,” Chehazeh acknowledged sending Rababah to ask the mosque’s imam for work. Confronted by that admission, Rababah confirmed he met with the imam at the mosque where two future hijackers asked for his help finding them a place to stay.

    “Wow, wow, wow, this is going good,” Bush recalled thinking. “We got Rababah at the mosque. We got him talking to Awlaki. We got him to talking to the hijackers after the prayer service.“

    The next step was getting Rababah to confirm that the imam he’d met was al-Awlaki. On June 10, 2002, while awaiting deportation to Jordan, Rababah made the jailhouse identification of al-Awlaki. Bush and Bukowski knew they had moved beyond the lower-level layer of logistical support and one ring closer to the senior leadership of al Qaeda. Al-Awlaki was a major player in the plot, and bringing him in could lead even further up the terror chain.

    But al-Awlaki was not arrested, and the reasons would not be known to Bush and Bukowski for years. The pushback from the FBI started as Bush and Bukowski began their long drive back to New Jersey from Charlottesville. Bukowski knew another FBI agent was working on a different case involving al-Awlaki, but he didn’t know much more than that.

    “I’m not going to step on anybody’s toes,” Bukowski recalled. “I don’t know what they are doing, and they don’t know what I’m doing. But at least we figure, ‘Let’s give him a call and tell him what has happened.’”

    Bukowski told FBI Special Agent Wade Ammerman they had gotten a major break in the terror investigation, and that they had enough to arrest al-Awlaki. Ammerman said he wanted to meet Rababah to verify the account but would get back to them.

    He never did. When an exasperated Bukowski called his bureau colleague back, he was stunned to hear Ammerman question their evidence.

    “He goes, ‘I don’t know, I don’t believe he’s really identifying him,’” Bukowski said.

    What the investigators did not know was that Ammerman was overseeing a separate terror investigation into what became known as the “Virginia Paintball” case. A cancer researcher and self-described Muslim scholar named Dr. Ali al-Timimi had allegedly inspired a group of young men from Virginia who used paintball to train for holy war to go to Pakistan to join the terror organization Lashkar-e-Taiba. Al-Awlaki was working as an informant for the FBI in that case, and nabbing him for 9/11 would blow his cover, the two investigators later discovered.

    “We knew that there was enough to hold Awlaki,” Bush said ruefully. “They didn’t want to for the reasons we know now.”

    “The Washington field office did not want Awlaki identified so they could use him as an asset for the paintball case in which Awlaki didn’t know the players,” he said.

    Still, a week after Rababah positively identified al-Awlaki to Bush and Bukowski, the Joint Terrorism Task Force in San Diego issued a warrant for his arrest for falsely stating on his passport that he was born in Yemen when in fact he was born in New Mexico. Al-Awlaki had been in Yemen since March 2002, but he was nabbed at New York’s JFK Airport on Oct. 10. Bush and Bukowski suspect Ammerman summoned him back to help with the paintball case.

    Ammerman allegedly told customs agents to let al-Awlaki go. Days later, the cleric visited al-Timimi’s Virginia home asking for help recruiting men for jihad. Al-Timimi’s defense attorneys insist their client declined to help and unsuccessfully sought evidence showing al-Awlaki was wearing a wire and trying to entrap al-Timimi.

    Al-Timimi was convicted of 10 felonies and received a life sentence in 2005. He was sent to the federal supermax prison in Colorado. A decade later, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit remanded al-Timimi’s case on the grounds that the FBI withheld evidence that it used al-Awlaki as an informant.

    His case is still under appeal. Al-Timimi was released from prison in September 2020 and is now under home confinement in Virginia awaiting resolution of his case. Jonathan Turley, al-Timimi’s appellate attorney, declined to comment on the new revelations from Bush and Bukowski.

    “We are obviously concerned by such reports but, given the ongoing litigation before in the federal courts, we do not feel that it would be appropriate to comment on such new evidence or allegations at this time,” Turley said.

    Documents obtained by Judicial Watch suggest that Ammerman had not gone rogue. Senior FBI leadership, including then-FBI Director Robert Mueller and former Attorney General John Ashcroft, were aware of the decision to pull back al-Awlaki’s arrest warrant.

    When reached by phone, Ammerman said he recently retired from the FBI office in Covington, Kentucky, and was contemplating writing a “non-fiction book that would have to be cleared through FBI channels.” He declined further comment.

    “It is not wise for me to discuss these matters as I am bound by [nondisclosure agreements],” he said.

    The handling of al-Awlaki by the FBI has never been fully explained.

    As for Bush and Bukowski, they still wonder why they were left in the dark while carrying out the most important investigation of their careers. Not only have they since learned the FBI had crystal clear images of al-Awlaki that would have made Rababah’s identification even more conclusive, they now know the FBI surveilled the cleric as he consorted with prostitutes and as he attended a Department of Defense luncheon at the still damaged Pentagon during a Muslim outreach event in February 2002.

    “Knowing Awlaki’s involvement with the hijackers and their support network, it would logically seem to me more important to understand, disrupt, and hold accountable the people involved that perpetrated the largest terrorist attack and murder on U.S. soil instead of assisting in an investigation that he didn’t have a connection with,” Bush said.

    Ten years and 19 days after 9/11, the 6-foot-1, 135-pound al-Awlaki was killed in Yemen by a U.S. Hellfire missile launched from a drone. In the intervening decade, he had emerged as one of the world’s most wanted men and most feared terrorists. Bush and Bukowski don’t mourn al-Awlaki, but they wish they had been the ones to bring him to justice.

    “Why did we not have probable cause to arrest Awlaki,” Bukowski recently wondered, “but we had probable cause to drone him?”

    The Orthodox Church’s top patriarch will visit the United States this week.

    1 Share

    The spiritual leader of the world’s 200 million Eastern Orthodox Christians brings an agenda spanning religious, political and environmental issues to a 12-day U.S. visit beginning Saturday that includes a meeting with President Joe Biden and various ceremonial and interfaith gatherings.

    Making the latest of several trips to the country during his 30 years in office, Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew is expected to address concerns ranging from a pending restructuring of the American church to his church’s status in his homeland, Turkey.

    Bartholomew’s title, patriarch of Constantinople, reflects the ancient imperial name of the city now known as Istanbul in a country where Orthodox Christians, who are mostly ethnically Greek, are a small minority.

    Archbishop Elpidophoros of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America said the patriarch is expected to renew calls for the reopening of a school of theology closed by the Turkish government 50 years ago.

    “Religious freedom in Turkey is vital for the ecumenical patriarchate in Turkey,” Elpidophoros said.

    Bartholomew will receive an honorary degree from the University of Notre Dame on Oct. 28 in an event highlighting efforts to improve Orthodox-Catholic ties, centuries after the two churches broke decisively in 1054 amid disputes over theology and papal claims of supremacy.

    Repairing that breach has “been a longstanding commitment of the patriarch,” said the Rev. Alexis Torrance, a professor of Byzantine theology at Notre Dame and an Orthodox priest.

    The gathering will also include a talk on environmental stewardship, underscoring Bartholomew’s reputation as the “green patriarch.”

    The patriarch is considered first among equals in the Eastern Orthodox hierarchy, which gives him prominence but not the power of a Catholic pope.

    Just as his influence is limited in Turkey, it is also limited in the Eastern Orthodox communion, rooted in Eastern Europe and the Middle East with a worldwide diaspora. Large portions of the communion are in national churches that are independently governed, with the ecumenical patriarch having only symbolic prominence, though he does directly oversee Greek Orthodox and some other jurisdictions.

    The Russian Orthodox Church, with about 100 million adherents, has in particular asserted its independence and influence and rejected Bartholomew’s 2019 recognition of the independence of Orthodox churches in Ukraine, where Moscow’s patriarch still claims sovereignty.

    For an ecumenical patriarch with primarily soft-power tools such as diplomacy at his disposal, the high profile of the U.S. visit has symbolic value for Bartholomew, said Andrew Walsh, associate director of the Greenberg Center for the Study of Religion in Public Life at Trinity College in Connecticut.

    It will “demonstrate that he’s a respected leader,” said Walsh, a layman who has long written about contemporary issues in Orthodoxy. “It is useful and desirable for him to show that presidents of the United States will talk with him.”

    Bartholomew is set to meet with Biden and other top U.S. officials in the coming days, though exact times have not been announced.

    Bartholomew will also hold a ceremonial door-opening at St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church and National Shrine in New York City, built to replace a parish church destroyed during the 9/11 attacks, and to memorialize those killed at the nearby World Trade Center.

    Bartholomew will meet, too, with leaders of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America and various other Orthodox leaders.

    Last year his office suspended the Greek Orthodox archdiocese’s governing charter, and discussions are expected to yield a new one by 2022, according to Elpidophoros.

    “What Greek (Orthodox) are waiting for is what he says about the charter” during the visit, Walsh said, particularly on the patriarch’s vision for how much authority will be centralized or decentralized in the American church.

    The American Jewish Committee is recognizing Bartholomew with its Human Dignity Award for his environmental and interfaith work.

    “He is not only the ‘green patriarch,’ but also he’s the patriarch of promoting dialogue,” Elpidophoros said.

    A 2017 Pew Research Center report found that there were about 200 million Eastern Orthodox worldwide. It reported about 1.8 million Orthodox in the United States, with nearly half of those Greek Orthodox.

    NATO Agrees On Plan To Caution Russia Against Increasing Hostilities

    1 Share

    Authored by Naveen Athrappully via The Epoch Times,

    NATO agreed on a new master plan on Thursday to deter Russian advances on multiple fronts amidst a new low in the relationship following the ouster of NATO-accredited Moscow envoys and reduction in the number of Russian positions within the alliance.

    The confidential strategy, Concept for Deterrence and Defence in the Euro-Atlantic Area, aims to prepare NATO members for attacks from the Baltic and Black Sea regions. The plan has incorporated measures for nuclear, space, and cyber attacks. As for cyber warfare, the meeting concluded with $1 billion in seed funding for developing digital technologies.

    “We continue to strengthen our alliance with better and modernised plans,” NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said following the Thursday meeting.

    The defense ministers are in Brussels for the two-day event before the NATO summit next June.

    NATO diplomats say such measures do not imply that there is an upcoming Russian attack.

    “This is the way of deterrence,” German Defence Minister Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer said of the master plan, according to Reuters.

    And this is being adapted to the current behaviour of Russia – and we are seeing violations particularly of the airspace over the Baltic states, but also increasing incursions over the Black Sea,” she told German radio Deutschlandfunk.

    Even as Moscow complains about NATO destabilizing Europe through such initiatives, Russia has been holding military drills and amassing almost 100,000 troops near Ukraine borders, sending military aircraft that intrudes into NATO airspace, and developing nuclear-capable missiles.

    Alongside ally Belarus, Russia has deployed combat robots in extensive military drills in September that have not gone well with the Baltic countries.

    Russia is also developing “super weapons,” including nuclear-capable hypersonic cruise missiles that the United States has no defense against, reported rfe/rl.

    The relationship with NATO had soured after Russian forces annexed Ukraine’s Crimean Peninsula back in 2014.

    Earlier in the month, NATO expelled eight Russian envoys who were suspected to be intelligence officers. This was combined with halving of the number of seats from 20 to 10 given to Moscow in Brussels headquarters “in response to suspected malign Russian activities, including killings and espionage,” a NATO official said, Sky News reported. In retaliation, Moscow announced that its mission to NATO would be ending.

    The assumption up until now has been that Russia is a nuisance but not an imminent threat. But the Russians are doing some worrying things. They’re practising with robotics, and hypersonic cruise missiles could be very disruptive indeed,” Jamie Shea, a former senior NATO official, said to Reuters.

    Russia’s Putin hosts Israeli PM Bennett

    1 Share

    MOSCOW (AP) — Russian President Vladimir Putin expressed hope on Friday that new Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett would continue in the footsteps of his predecessor in maintaining close and “trusting” relations with his country.

    Welcoming Bennett at the start of their first meeting in Russia’s Black Sea resort of Sochi, Putin hailed Russian-Israeli ties as “unique,” saying that “our dialogue, our relations rely on a very deep connection between our peoples.”

    Putin kept close personal ties with former Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who has repeatedly visited Russia. On Friday, Putin pointed to Russia’s “business-like and trusting relationship” with Netanyahu’s government and expressed hope that Bennett’s government would pursue a “policy of continuity” in Russian-Israeli ties.

    Bennett extolled the contribution made by his country’s 1 million Russian speakers and emphasized “the deep connection between the two countries,” praising Putin for bringing them closer during his 20-year rule.

    “I can tell you on behalf of the citizens of Israel that we consider you a true friend of the Jewish people,” Bennett said.

    Bennett hailed the Soviet role in defeating the Nazis in World War II and talked about a new museum in Israel that honors Jewish soldiers who fought in allied armies, primarily the Red Army. The remark likely resonated with Putin who cherishes his country’s decisive contribution to victory in that war.

    Russia and Israel have developed close political, economic and cultural ties that have helped the two countries tackle delicate and divisive issues, such as the situation in Syria where Moscow has teamed up with Tehran to shore up Syrian President Bashar Assad’s rule.

    “We will also talk about the situation in Syria, and the efforts to halt the Iranian military nuclear program,” Bennett said at the start of his talks with Putin.

    Putin said that Russia has been “making efforts to help restore Syria’s statehood and to strengthen it.” He noted that despite some problems regarding the situation in Syria, “there is also common ground and opportunities for cooperation, especially in terms of the fight against terrorism.”

    Israel views Iranian entrenchment on its northern frontier as a red line, and it has repeatedly struck what it says are Iran-linked facilities and weapons convoys destined for Lebanese Hezbollah. The Iran-backed militant group has fought alongside Syrian government forces in the country’s civil war.

    Russia has waged a military campaign in Syria since 2015, helping Assad’s government reclaim control over most of the country. Moscow also has helped modernize Syria’s military, including providing Assad with air defense systems, and trained its personnel.

    Russia and Israel established a military hotline to coordinate air force operations over Syria to avoid clashes. Israel often attacks Iranian-linked targets in Syria, while Russia has provided support to the Syrian government.

    In 2018, Russia-Israeli ties were severely tested by the downing of a Russian warplane by Syrian forces that responded to an Israeli air raid and mistook a Russian reconnaissance plane for Israeli jets. All 15 members of the Russian crew died.

    Moscow also has played a delicate diplomatic game of maintaining friendly ties with both Israel and Iran. In 2018, Moscow struck a deal with Tehran to keep its fighters away from the Golan Heights to accommodate Israeli concerns about the Iranian presence in Syria.

    Russia is one of the international parties that negotiated a 2015 nuclear deal with Iran. The deal fell apart after then-President Donald Trump withdrew in 2018. But the new U.S. administration is now trying to revive the deal with other international powers — a step that Israel opposes.

    FBI incompetence let Anwar al Awlaki slip away, say retired investigators

    More than 20 years after 9/11, two key investigators who made the case their livesxe2x80x99 work have revealed they are still haunted by the fact that the FBI let the terroristsxe2x80x99 spiritual adviser slip away, only to inspire more deadly attacks in the name of Islam.

    In an exclusive interview, New Jersey criminal investigator Jim Bush and FBI agent Bob Bukowski, who are both retired, told the Washington Examiner never-revealed details about how they pieced together some of the players behind the plot to hijack four commercial planes and kill 2,977 people. But the case that capped the careers of two seasoned investigators brought both triumph and disappointment, and they are only now learning why Imam Anwar al-Awlaki eluded them in the months after the attack.

    xe2x80x9cI feel Awlaki was the most important figure in the 9/11 investigation,xe2x80x9d Bush said recently, his words tinged with both nostalgia and regret.

    Awlaki was a charismatic radical cleric with a passion for prostitutes and whose fiery sermons could turn peaceful Muslims into cold-blooded killers. Bush and Bukowski were working on a branch of the 9/11 investigation code-named PENTTBOM and based in Paterson, New Jersey. Eleven of the 19 hijackers passed through the Garden State, and the gritty, densely populated city 20 miles west of Manhattan was a hot spot.

    By June 10, 2002, Bush and Bukowski were confident they had enough to nab al-Awlaki, but they were inexplicably told to stand down by the FBI. Between that time and Sept. 30, 2011, when a U.S. drone killed al-Awlaki in Yemen, the imam helped direct some of the worldxe2x80x99s most high-profile acts of terrorism. He referred in a video to the so-called xe2x80x9cunderwear bomberxe2x80x9d and Fort Hood gunman Nidal Hasan as his xe2x80x9cstudents,xe2x80x9d and a New York subway bombing plot, the thwarted attacks of the xe2x80x9cFort Dix Six,xe2x80x9d and multiple attacks in England all bore al-Awlakixe2x80x99s dastardly fingerprints.

    Years later, Bush and Bukowski finally know the reasons they were prevented from bringing al-Awlaki to justice before he could inspire more followers to kill infidels: incompetence and paintball.

    In the days following 9/11, the PENTTBOM team worked out of Paterson, New Jersey. Its mission was to focus on the hijacking of American Airlines Flight 77, which was slammed into the Pentagon, killing 189. They knew early on that a shadowy cleric had played a key role in the plot, but his identity had been elusive. Nine months after the attack, they showed the American-born al-Awlakixe2x80x99s photo to Eyad Rababah, who was in a Charlottesville, Virginia, jail, suspected of helping two hijackers get IDs and apartments at the behest of the mysterious imam.

    xe2x80x9cWe showed the picture, and he sighs, and he looks at it, and he looks at it, and he goes, xe2x80x98Thatxe2x80x99s the guy. Thatxe2x80x99s the imam,xe2x80x99xe2x80x9d Bush recalled the Jordanian-born Rababah saying after seeing a grainy picture provided by the FBIxe2x80x99s Washington, D.C., field office. xe2x80x9cIt was a 100% identification.xe2x80x9d

    xe2x80x9cIxe2x80x99m like, xe2x80x98Wow, this is it. Wexe2x80x98ve got it,xe2x80x99xe2x80x9d Bush recalled. xe2x80x9cWe had him identified by Eyad. We knew that there was enough to hold Awlaki.xe2x80x9d

    Rababah was a star witness early on, xe2x80x9cthe first live person that met hijackers,xe2x80x9d Bush said. In working backward to find out who helped the 19 dead terrorists, his help was critical. Rababah had turned himself in at the New Haven, Connecticut, FBI field office after learning that Bush and Bukowski were on his trail after tracing him to a forged ID found in one of the hijackerxe2x80x99s cars.

    xe2x80x9cI know the FBI is looking for me, and I just want to let you know I did meet two of the hijackers,xe2x80x9d he told the FBI. It was just 17 days after the 9/11 attacks.

    In the ensuing months, Rababah would be tied directly to aiding four of the five hijackers from American Airlines Flight 77: Hani Hanjour, who piloted the hijacked plane, Nawaf al Hazmi, Majed Moqued, and Salem Hazmi. While they were the martyrs who died in the name of their twisted cause, the detectives knew they couldnxe2x80x99t have done it alone.

    xe2x80x9cYou have to look as a detective,xe2x80x9d Bush said. xe2x80x9cYouxe2x80x99ve got to say, xe2x80x98How did these guys move around?xe2x80x99 They didnxe2x80x99t speak English. They had to have a network.xe2x80x9d

    The investigators first established that the hijackers had stayed in safehouses the detectives traced to Rababah and his Syrian roommate, Daoud Chehazeh. Chehazeh had been arrested just before the Rababah turned himself in. Under questioning over several weeks while he was held on charges of ID fraud, Rababahxe2x80x99s claim of innocence began to unravel. One of the apartments he and Chehazeh shared was near a Falls Church, Virginia, mosque where al-Awlaki preached.

    Despite claiming they xe2x80x9cwere not religious,xe2x80x9d Chehazeh acknowledged sending Rababah to ask the mosquexe2x80x99s imam for work. Confronted by that admission, Rababah confirmed he met with the imam at the mosque where two future hijackers asked for his help finding them a place to stay.

    xe2x80x9cWow, wow, wow, this is going good,xe2x80x9d Bush recalled thinking. xe2x80x9cWe got Rababah at the mosque. We got him talking to Awlaki. We got him to talking to the hijackers after the prayer service.xe2x80x9c

    The next step was getting Rababah to confirm that the imam hexe2x80x99d met was al-Awlaki. On June 10, 2002, while awaiting deportation to Jordan, Rababah made the jailhouse identification of al-Awlaki. Bush and Bukowski knew they had moved beyond the lower-level layer of logistical support and one ring closer to the senior leadership of al Qaeda. Al-Awlaki was a major player in the plot, and bringing him in could lead even further up the terror chain.

    But al-Awlaki was not arrested, and the reasons would not be known to Bush and Bukowski for years. The pushback from the FBI started as Bush and Bukowski began their long drive back to New Jersey from Charlottesville. Bukowski knew another FBI agent was working on a different case involving al-Awlaki, but he didnxe2x80x99t know much more than that.

    xe2x80x9cIxe2x80x99m not going to step on anybodyxe2x80x99s toes,xe2x80x9d Bukowski recalled. xe2x80x9cI donxe2x80x99t know what they are doing, and they donxe2x80x99t know what Ixe2x80x99m doing. But at least we figure, xe2x80x98Letxe2x80x99s give him a call and tell him what has happened.xe2x80x99xe2x80x9d

    Bukowski told FBI Special Agent Wade Ammerman they had gotten a major break in the terror investigation, and that they had enough to arrest al-Awlaki. Ammerman said he wanted to meet Rababah to verify the account but would get back to them.

    He never did. When an exasperated Bukowski called his bureau colleague back, he was stunned to hear Ammerman question their evidence.

    xe2x80x9cHe goes, xe2x80x98I donxe2x80x99t know, I donxe2x80x99t believe hexe2x80x99s really identifying him,xe2x80x99xe2x80x9d Bukowski said.

    What the investigators did not know was that Ammerman was overseeing a separate terror investigation into what became known as the xe2x80x9cVirginia Paintballxe2x80x9d case. A cancer researcher and self-described Muslim scholar named Dr. Ali al-Timimi had allegedly inspired a group of young men from Virginia who used paintball to train for holy war to go to Pakistan to join the terror organization Lashkar-e-Taiba. Al-Awlaki was working as an informant for the FBI in that case, and nabbing him for 9/11 would blow his cover, the two investigators later discovered.

    xe2x80x9cWe knew that there was enough to hold Awlaki,xe2x80x9d Bush said ruefully. xe2x80x9cThey didnxe2x80x99t want to for the reasons we know now.”

    xe2x80x9cThe Washington field office did not want Awlaki identified so they could use him as an asset for the paintball case in which Awlaki didnxe2x80x99t know the players,xe2x80x9d he said.

    Still, a week after Rababah positively identified al-Awlaki to Bush and Bukowski, the Joint Terrorism Task Force in San Diego issued a warrant for his arrest for falsely stating on his passport that he was born in Yemen when in fact he was born in New Mexico. Al-Awlaki had been in Yemen since March 2002, but he was nabbed at New Yorkxe2x80x99s JFK Airport on Oct. 10. Bush and Bukowski suspect Ammerman summoned him back to help with the paintball case.

    Ammerman allegedly told customs agents to let al-Awlaki go. Days later, the cleric visited al-Timimixe2x80x99s Virginia home asking for help recruiting men for jihad. Al-Timimixe2x80x99s defense attorneys insist their client declined to help and unsuccessfully sought evidence showing al-Awlaki was wearing a wire and trying to entrap al-Timimi.

    Al-Timimi was convicted of 10 felonies and received a life sentence in 2005. He was sent to the federal supermax prison in Colorado. A decade later, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit remanded al-Timimixe2x80x99s case on the grounds that the FBI withheld evidence that it used al-Awlaki as an informant.

    His case is still under appeal. Al-Timimi was released from prison in September 2020 and is now under home confinement in Virginia awaiting resolution of his case. Jonathan Turley, al-Timimixe2x80x99s appellate attorney, declined to comment on the new revelations from Bush and Bukowski.

    xe2x80x9cWe are obviously concerned by such reports but, given the ongoing litigation before in the federal courts, we do not feel that it would be appropriate to comment on such new evidence or allegations at this time,xe2x80x9d Turley said.

    Documents obtained by Judicial Watch suggest that Ammerman had not gone rogue. Senior FBI leadership, including then-FBI Director Robert Mueller and former Attorney General John Ashcroft, were aware of the decision to pull back al-Awlakixe2x80x99s arrest warrant.

    When reached by phone, Ammerman said he recently retired from the FBI office in Covington, Kentucky, and was contemplating writing a xe2x80x9cnon-fiction book that would have to be cleared through FBI channels.” He declined further comment.

    xe2x80x9cIt is not wise for me to discuss these matters as I am bound by [nondisclosure agreements],xe2x80x9d he said.

    The handling of al-Awlaki by the FBI has never been fully explained.

    As for Bush and Bukowski, they still wonder why they were left in the dark while carrying out the most important investigation of their careers. Not only have they since learned the FBI had crystal clear images of al-Awlaki that would have made Rababahxe2x80x99s identification even more conclusive, they now know the FBI surveilled the cleric as he consorted with prostitutes and as he attended a Department of Defense luncheon at the still damaged Pentagon during a Muslim outreach event in February 2002.

    xe2x80x9cKnowing Awlakixe2x80x99s involvement with the hijackers and their support network, it would logically seem to me more important to understand, disrupt, and hold accountable the people involved that perpetrated the largest terrorist attack and murder on U.S. soil instead of assisting in an investigation that he didnxe2x80x99t have a connection with,xe2x80x9d Bush said.

    Ten years and 19 days after 9/11, the 6-foot-1, 135-pound al-Awlaki was killed in Yemen by a U.S. Hellfire missile launched from a drone. In the intervening decade, he had emerged as one of the worldxe2x80x99s most wanted men and most feared terrorists. Bush and Bukowski donxe2x80x99t mourn al-Awlaki, but they wish they had been the ones to bring him to justice.

    xe2x80x9cWhy did we not have probable cause to arrest Awlaki,xe2x80x9d Bukowski recently wondered, xe2x80x9cbut we had probable cause to drone him?xe2x80x9d
