CIA chief ‘behind Soleimani’s assassination’ killed in downed plane in Afghanistan – Middle East Monitor
Thu, 30 Jan 2020 10:04:13 -0500
Michael_Novakhov shared this story from Comments for Middle East Monitor.

Russian intelligence sources have claimed that Michael D’Andrea, head of CIA operations in Iran and who orchestrated the assassination of Iranian General Qassem Soleimani, was killed in a US spy plane downed yesterday in Ghazni, Afghanistan.
The plane with US Air Force markings reportedly served as the CIA’s mobile command for D’Andrea, who earnt several nicknames including: Ayatollah Mike, the Dark Prince, and the Undertaker. He is one of the most prominent CIA figures in the region, appointed head of the agency’s Iran Mission Centre in 2017. Under his leadership, the agency was perceived to take a more “aggressive stance toward Iran”.
The Taliban claimed to have shot down the plane but have yet to provide evidence, whilst the US has denied the claim but has acknowledged the loss of a Bombardier E-11A plane in central Afghanistan. Graphic images online have already circulated purportedly showing some of the charred remains of those on board.
Afghan authorities initially claimed the plane was a state-owned airline, but this was denied by the company, Ariana. Helicopters have been brought down before by the Taliban, but they are not believed to have the capabilities required to bring down a high-flying aircraft.
READ: The truth about US casualties in the Iran attack is slowly coming out
It has been speculated that Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corp (IRGC) may also have a hand in the incident, especially as anti-aircraft support has previously been given to the Taliban. Additionally, the Afghan Shia Fatimyoun Brigades, who are trained by the IRGC, also have a presence in the country.
An exiled Iranian journalist who has written previously for the hard-line Javan daily newspaper suggested the IRGC was involved, tweeting: “The American Gulfstream plane was downed in Afghanistan by the Taliban. They say that intelligence officers were on board. This report has not yet been confirmed, but if it is, it is possible that the issue of Iran will also emerge in this case.”
Another Iranian journalist who writes for Mashregh newspaper, described as having close links to IRGC, tweeted not long after the news broke out: “We will attack them on the same level as they are attacking us.”
Soleimani’s successor as head of the IRGC’s Quds Force, Esmail Qaani, has established ties in Afghanistan going back to the 1980s. Additionally, the chief commander of the IRGC, General Hossein Salami, warned that no American military commanders will be safe if the US administration continues to threaten Iranian commanders.

D’Andrea, who is reportedly a convert to Islam, doing so in order to marry his Muslim wife, who is from a wealthy family from the Mauritius of Gujarati origins, having met on his first overseas assignment in East Africa, one of the senior directors of her family’s company Curumjee Group, has been speculated to provide cover for CIA operations.
He also oversaw hundreds of drone strikes, which according to The New York Times “killed thousands of Islamist militants and hundreds of civilians”. D’andrea is credited with being the mastermind behind the CIA’s notorious “signature strike” used to kill people based on their behaviour, not identity, subsequently used to determine someone’s guilt or likelihood of being a terrorist.
He was central to the post-9/11 interrogation programme and ran the CIA’s Counterterrorism Center. Assassinations and torture were central to his approach. He also oversaw the hunt for Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden and was involved in the assassination of Hezbollah member Imad Mughniyah in Damascus, Syria.

Bryant was a practicing Catholic. He said his faith and a priest helped him through difficult times, such as his trial for rape. A Catholic cantor said she was inspired by Bryant's faith, and the respect that he showed her.[12][13][14] Bryant and his family were regular attendees at Our Lady Queen of Angels Catholic Church in Newport Beach. Bryant and his daughter, Gianna, received the Eucharist together just hours before their passing.[394]

Lakers general manager Jerry West criticized O'Neal's leadership for hazing Bryant that season.[8] While O'Neal's personality was good-humored, Bryant's demeanor was all-business and was interpreted by some teammates as selfishness.[9] O'Neal began calling Bryant showboat because of his flashy offensive moves.[10] In an overtime playoff loss to the Utah Jazz that eliminated the Lakers, O'Neal fouled out with two minutes remaining in regulation. Lakers coach Del Harris had designed the Laker offense around the rookie Bryant, who went on to shoot four air balls. Harris explained that Bryant's one-on-one skills made him the best choice.[11] After the game, O'Neal put his arm around Bryant and told him there would be other opportunities.[12] West said the team's shortcoming made O'Neal angry since he was going to be judged by the team's success.[13]

In February 2018, both players recorded a Players Only special for NBA TV where they spoke about their history together, the mutual respect and appreciation, and explanations and regrets over the tensions and feud.[156]
On January 26, 2020, Bryant died in a helicopter crash.[157] O'Neal expressed his sorrow on Twitter soon after official reports of Bryant's death were released.[158] On a January 28, 2020 episode of Inside the NBA, O'Neal revealed that the last time he spoke in person with Bryant was at his final game versus the Utah Jazz, but that he and Bryant regularly texted, including on the morning of the crash.[159]

When the Lakers faced the Heat on January 16, 2006, O'Neal and Bryant made headlines by engaging in handshakes and hugs before the game, an event that was believed to signify the end of the so-called "Bryant–O'Neal feud" that had festered since the center left Los Angeles. O'Neal was quoted as saying that he accepted the advice of NBA legend Bill Russell to make peace with Bryant.[166] However, on June 22, 2008, O'Neal freestyled a diss rap about Bryant in a New York club. While rapping, O'Neal blamed Bryant for his divorce from his wife Shaunie and claims to have received a vasectomy, as part of a rhyme. He also taunted Bryant for not being able to win a championship without him. O'Neal led the audience to mockingly chant several times "Kobe, tell me how my ass tastes."[167] O'Neal justified his act by saying "I was freestyling. That's all. It was all done in fun. Nothing serious whatsoever. That is what MCs do. They freestyle when called upon. I'm totally cool with Kobe. No issue at all."[168] Although even other exponents of hip hop, such as Snoop DoggNas and Cory Gunz, agreed with O'Neal,[169] Maricopa County, Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio expressed his intention to relieve O'Neal of his Maricopa County sheriff posse badge, due to "use of a racially derogatory word and other foul language". The racial quote from his song was "it's like a white boy trying to be more nigga than me."[170]

Shaquille Rashaun "Shaq" O'Neal (/ʃəˈkl/ shə-KEEL/ʃæk/ SHAK; born March 6, 1972) is a retired professional American basketball player who is a sports analyst on the television program Inside the NBA on TNT. He is considered one of the greatest players in National Basketball Association (NBA) history.[1][2][3] At 7 ft 1 in (2.16 m) tall[4] and 325 pounds (147 kg), he was one of the tallest and heaviest players ever. O'Neal played for six teams over his 19-year career.
Following his time at Louisiana State University, O'Neal was drafted by the Orlando Magic with the first overall pick in the 1992 NBA draft. He quickly became one of the best centers in the league, winning Rookie of the Year in 1992–93 and leading his team to the 1995 NBA Finals. After four years with the Magic, O'Neal signed as a free agent with the Los Angeles Lakers. They won three consecutive championships in 20002001, and 2002. Amid tension between O'Neal and Kobe Bryant, O'Neal was traded to the Miami Heat in 2004, and his fourth NBA championship followed in 2006. Midway through the 2007–2008 season he was traded to the Phoenix Suns. After a season-and-a-half with the Suns, O'Neal was traded to the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 2009–10 season.[5] O'Neal played for the Boston Celtics in the 2010–11 season before retiring.[6]

Religion bureau: Kobe’s Faith
In its obituary for basketball superstar Kobe Bryant, who “died Sunday in a helicopter crash in Southern California, along with his 13-year-old daughter, Gianna,” the Catholic News Agency highlights Bryant’s Catholic faith, which he credited with “helping him move past a challenging period in his own life and the life of his family.” When he was accused of rape in 2003, a charge he denied, Bryant decided to “place deeper trust in God,” talking to a priest and attending Mass. He also emphasized his faith in his decision to “fund youth homeless shelters and other projects aimed at serving the poor.” In all, as singer Cristina Ballestero wrote on Instagram, Bryant’s decision to “receive God’s mercy and to be a better man after a regretful decision” was “inspiring.”
Foreign desk: Tehran’s DC Spokesmen
A pro-Iran-regime group that “played a pivotal backstage role in securing the Obama-era nuclear deal abandoned by President Trump” is again “exerting its influence,” warns RealClearInvestigations’ Mark Hemingway. After Tehran fired missiles at US troops based in Iraq, the National Iranian American Council blamed President Trump and “co-hosted a ‘No War With Iran Strategy Call’ that featured presidential candidates Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders, along with Reps. Barbara Lee and Ro Khanna.” There is clear “evidence of close communication between the lobbying group’s leaders and Iranian officials,” yet NIAC founder Trita Parsi is a cable-commentary regular. As a congressional staffer notes, “if an organization with close ties to Russia were repeatedly accused of lobbying for the regime of Russian President Vladimir Putin, not to mention taking an active role in staffing congressional offices and working to elect candidates, ‘there would a 24/7 meltdown on cable news.’  ”
Security beat: The Hazards of Huawei
European leaders have “spoken out against China’s repression and mass detention of its minority Muslim population” in the Xinjiang province — yet, Annie Fixler and Mikhael Smits note at The Hill, Europe may give lucrative 5G infrastructure contracts to one of “the same technology firms ­facilitating these abuses.” That would be Chinese telecom giant Huawei, which has provided “cloud-computing power and other technical support to the police departments and provincial government in Xinjiang” and ­received praise from provincial leaders. Worse, the Chinese Communists could use Huawei to “steal private or proprietary information or use ‘kill switches’ to disrupt . . . electrical grids.” Sure, choosing Huawei would save money — but at the price of European “security, privacy and freedom.”
Libertarian: The Media’s Puddle Muddle
“Another day, another barrage of hysterical reactions to a marginal regulatory reform,” sighs Reason’s Christian Britschgi — in this case, “the White House’s finalized clean-water rule that renounces the federal government’s ability to regulate ponds, puddles and (some) ditches,” including on private property. The New York Times, for example, quoted an environmental lawyer who claims the change is “the biggest loss of clean-water protection the country has ever seen.” In fact, the new rule will only “pare back the federal government’s regulatory powers to something closer to what Congress intended” in the 1972 Clean Water Act. So don’t believe the hysteria: The rule change isn’t “a broadside against science and clean water” at all — it’s a strike against the feds’ “claim to effectively limitless regulatory authority.”
Impeach watch: A Kafkaesque ‘Trial’
Imagine you are on trial — but the prosecutors “stop you from presenting your defense” and then “argue that you should be convicted because you have no defense.” That “sounds like something out of Kafka,” but, says National Review’s Andrew McCarthy, it’s “essentially what House Democrats have done to President Trump.” They don’t believe Trump was “concerned about rooting out corruption” when he asked his Ukrainian counterpart to ­investigate Joe and Hunter Biden. Whether or not that’s true, House Democrats never gave Trump defenders “a fair opportunity” to present their case regarding the energy firm Burisma. Having blocked this basic procedural right, Democratic impeachment managers perversely insist at his Senate trial that there is no evidence of such corruption. Shame: “A trial is not a trial” without “the right to mount a defense.”

US plane crash in Afghanistan: CIA agent involved in Soleimani’s killing among dead
TEHRAN: Iranian media outlets claim “many CIA” officers were killed in a plane crash in Afghanistan on Monday. The Taliban initially asserted large numbers of Americans were killed, and Russian media and Iranian media then said a senior CIA officer responsible for killing IRGC Gen. Qasem Soleimani was on board.
The claim has been greeted with skepticism. Michael D’Andrea’s name began to appear in Farsi media in the wake of the Soleimani killing when articles at Mehr News and Radio Farda claimed he was involved in planning the US operation. Later, on January 27, his name appeared again in rumors after the plane crash, reported foreign media on Wednesday. There are many who might have an interest in spreading conspiracies about the Taliban downing high-ranking US intelligence officers. Nevertheless, Iran’s News Agency ran with the story, quoting Russian sources that said the “assassin of Soleimani was on the plane and [was] killed in the crash.” It claims that D’Andrea “is the most prominent figure in the US CIA in the Middle East. He has been in charge of operations in Iraq, Iran and Afghanistan.”
The Taliban was quoted as saying it had shot down the plane. Iranian news agency refers to D’Andrea as “Ayatollah Mike” and “the Prince of Darkness,” relying on old US newspaper clippings. Press TV of Iran has also included the report, claiming top CIA officers were killed and repeating rumors about D’Andrea. But the original reports from the Taliban only spoke of a plane being shot down and some CIA members allegedly being on it. The US says an American E-11A plane was shot down in Ghazni province, around 900km from the Iranian border. Linking its downing to the Soleimani killing would be a major development and appear to show that Iran is active in Afghanistan with the Taliban, a claim that has been made in the past. Iran watches US movements in Afghanistan carefully and has met with the Taliban recently. Iran has also tried to down US drones that stray near Iran’s border.
The US has dropped a record number of bombs on the Taliban in the last year, as it also tried to push it toward the peace table. Many social media users are interested in the claim that D’Andrea may have been on the plane. One of the first users to report the claim noted that D’Andrea “masterminded the murder of Imad Mughniyeh, former Hezbollah chief of staff, back in 2008.” However, others have pointed out that while this could be big news, it could be disinformation, or designed merely to create the appearance that Iran had responded to the Soleimani killing. Iran has promised “hard revenge” against the US. Some Iranians on social media who support the regime in Tehran have been celebrating the downing of the plane.
The Taliban spokesman said it is still investigating who was killed on the plane, and it has not confirmed that the top CIA officer was among the dead. Photos placed online show burned bodies. A website noted a Taliban statement saying it found some documents on the plane, but the corpses of those on board were burned.

Just Security: Explainer: Prepublication Review and How it Applies to Bolton

A few days ago, The New York Times published significant revelations from a draft manuscript of former National Security Adviser John Bolton’s memoir, The Room Where It Happened, which is slated for publication this March. In late December, Bolton submitted this manuscript to the government for “prepublication review.” As news reports have explained, the White House could exploit this process to delay or block publication of Bolton’s memoir. Days before the Times ran its story, the White House warned Bolton against publishing his book until it had been reviewed and cleared for publication. But what is prepublication review, and how does it apply to Bolton’s memoir?
Below, we explain the key features of the system and the significant discretion it gives the government to suppress protected speech—potentially including Bolton’s memoir.
Full disclosure: we believe the government’s current system of prepublication review is unconstitutional. The Knight Institute and the ACLU represent five former public servants in an ongoing lawsuit challenging that system on First Amendment and Fifth Amendment grounds.
What is prepublication review?
Prepublication review is the umbrella term for the system of government censorship that prohibits millions of former intelligence-agency employees and military personnel—like John Bolton—from writing or speaking publicly about their government service without first getting the government’s approval. The government asserts that the system is intended to prevent the inadvertent disclosure of classified information.
Prepublication review traces back to the CIA’s early practice of requiring employees to sign secrecy agreements prohibiting them from publishing manuscripts without first obtaining the agency’s consent. In 1980, the Supreme Court decided Snepp v. United States, ruling that the CIA could seize the proceeds earned by a former CIA officer who published a book on the Vietnam War without submitting it for prepublication review. And in 1983, President Ronald Reagan issued a national security directive compelling all intelligence-agency employees with access to highly sensitive information (specifically, “sensitive compartmented information” or “SCI”) to sign a nondisclosure agreement requiring prepublication review of their manuscripts. One year later, the directive was suspended in response to congressional pushback, but federal agencies continued to adopt and develop their own prepublication review regimes.
Since the 1980s, the prepublication review system has expanded on every axis. More agencies impose review requirements on more categories of people. Former employees are submitting more material, and in part because of this, agencies are taking more time to complete their reviews. The amount of information designated as classified—and thereby subject to redaction during review—has increased significantly. And prepublication review processes have grown increasingly complex.
Why did Bolton submit his memoir for prepublication review?  
Bolton is likely subject to several independent obligations to submit his manuscript for prepublication review.
First, Bolton was a presidential appointee (to the post of National Security Adviser), and presidential appointees are generally required to submit their manuscripts for prepublication review. Instruction 80.04 of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) requires presidential appointees such as Bolton to submit for review “all official and non-official information intended for publication that discusses the ODNI, the IC [Intelligence Community], or national security.”
Second, given Bolton’s position, he likely signed government nondisclosure agreements as a condition of access to classified information, and those agreements likely contain prepublication review obligations. For access to SCI in particular, Bolton would most likely have been required to sign Form 4414. That form requires signatories to submit for review “any writing or other preparation in any form, including a work of fiction, that contains or purports to contain any SCI or description of activities that produce or relate to SCI or that [the individual has] reason to believe are derived from SCI.”
These standards for the submission of manuscripts are broad and vague, and it’s not always clear whether any particular manuscript must be submitted.
This said, assuming Bolton is in fact subject to one or more of these prepublication review obligations, it is fairly clear that they apply to his book manuscript. The Room Where It Happened is billed as a “White House memoir” offering a “substantive and factual account of [Bolton’s] time in the room where it happened.” Press accounts say that the book discusses, among other things, Trump’s policies toward Ukraine, as well as Bolton’s concern that the President was dispensing personal favors to autocratic leaders. If these accounts are accurate, Bolton was almost certainly obligated to submit his manuscript for prepublication review.
Importantly, the government takes the view that prepublication review is required even where an author is certain—as Bolton claims to be—that the manuscript contains no classified information. (In response to that claim, the White House has asserted that Bolton’s manuscript “appears to contain significant amounts of classified information,” including top secret information. That claim warrants close scrutiny, as the government’s definition of classified information is notoriously expansive and susceptible to misapplication.)
Who is reviewing Bolton’s manuscript?
Likely the White House and multiple intelligence agencies.
Bolton submitted his manuscript to the National Security Council records office. Given Bolton’s former position within government and the prepublication review obligations to which he is likely subject, that office likely referred his manuscript to several intelligence agencies for review.
In particular, the Office of Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) and whichever agency last authorized Bolton’s access to SCI—whether the CIA, the NSA, or some other agency—are almost certainly reviewing his manuscript. These agencies, in turn, may have referred the manuscript to other agencies with particular interests (what the government calls “equities”) in the manuscript. The government generally does not volunteer to authors whether, and to which agencies, it has referred their manuscripts for review, so it’s possible that not even Bolton knows who has copies of his manuscript.
It’s not entirely clear whether the White House Counsel and the West Wing are also reviewing Bolton’s book. According to one news report, the White House Counsel may be asked to review the book for executive privilege. If this account is accurate, it lends support to the concern that reviewers will redact from Bolton’s book more than just classified information.
How long will prepublication review of Bolton’s manuscript take?
For several reasons, it’s not clear.
To begin with, we don’t know for sure which agency’s prepublication review procedures—and, by extension, deadlines—apply to the review of Bolton’s book. Even if we knew which deadlines applied, most prepublication review deadlines are advisory. For example, ODNI’s instruction states that review will be completed within 30 calendar days, “as priorities and resources allow.” That last clause gives ODNI considerable wiggle room, and many agencies have similar exceptions.
 Even if firm deadlines applied, it’s unlikely they’d be followed. For example, Form 4414 theoretically guarantees that prepublication review will be completed within 30 working days. But in practice, delay is the norm. For example, Mark Fallon (a former DOD employee) and Melvin Goodman (a former CIA employee) had to wait eight months and eleven months, respectively, for their books to be reviewed. A manuscript by former CIA analyst Nada Bakos was reportedly under review for over two years. And the CIA’s own documents candidly project that the review of book-length manuscripts will take more than one year to complete. These personal experiences and government practices are part of the reason we have filed a lawsuit challenging prepublication review.
Will government reviewers look only for classified information in Bolton’s book?  
No.
Like other aspects of prepublication review, the standards that agencies apply when they examine manuscripts are vague and overbroad. Ostensibly, the sole purpose of prepublication review is to prevent the unauthorized disclosure of classified information. But in reality, many agencies have censored—or have claimed the authority to censor—more than just classified information. For example, the CIA demanded that our client Richard Immerman extensively redact portions of his book on the history of the CIA, even though all the information originated from publicly sourced material, including material that the CIA itself had published.
As noted above, one news account suggests that the government may review Bolton’s book for more than just classified information. According to the report, White House officials may be asked to look for information that President Donald Trump’s lawyers claim is protected by their expansive interpretation of executive privilege—despite the holding of one federal appeals court that the government “has no legitimate interest in censoring unclassified materials.”
Can the government block the publication of Bolton’s book, or portions of it?
Effectively, yes.
The government can demand that Bolton redact or rewrite any portions of his book that, in the government’s view, contain classified information (or, as explained above, any other information it determines may not be published). If Bolton decided to rewrite those portions of his book, he would need to resubmit it for another round of review. It does not appear to be common, but the government could even reject Bolton’s entire manuscript, if it determined that no part of it could be published.
More indirectly, the government could simply delay its review of Bolton’s manuscript past the point of its relevance to public discourse—for example, until after the impeachment trial and after the November elections. There are a shocking number of examples of agency censors taking months or even years to complete prepublication review.
If Bolton nevertheless pressed ahead with the publication of his book without final approval, the government could attempt to punish him in a number of ways: by filing a lawsuit to seize the profits from his book, by revoking his security clearance, or by criminally prosecuting him if his book contained classified information.
While the government has several tools it can use to attempt to prevent Bolton’s book, or portions of it, from seeing the light of day, the one thing the government probably can’t do is seek a court order prohibiting Bolton from publishing his book. That would be a dramatic and likely unsuccessful effort, given the Supreme Court’s decision in 1971 rejecting the government’s request to bar The New York Times from publishing the so-called Pentagon Papers, leaked documents concerning the Vietnam War.
Can Bolton challenge the review of his book?
 Yes. If Bolton believes that the review of his book is taking too long, he could ask a court to step in to speed up the process. Last year, Guy Snodgrass, a former top aide to Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis, filed a lawsuit alleging that the Department of Defense was deliberately delaying approval of his manuscript as a “retaliatory and punishing tactic.” Shortly after Snodgrass sued, the Department of Defense cleared his book for publication.
He could also sue to challenge the propriety of any redactions the government insists that he make. Courts are generally very deferential (far too deferential, in our view) to government claims related to classified information, but authors can challenge government redactions as unnecessary or overbroad.

The National Interest: Did Lev Parnas Send Adam Schiff His Lewd Pics?

Politics, Americas
Ukrainian-American businessman Lev Parnas, an associate of President Donald Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani, arrives for a bail hearing at the Manhattan Federal Court in New York, U.S., December 17, 2019. REUTERS/Brendan McDermid

Congress wanted everything on his phone.

  • Lev Parnas provided Congress with files from his iPhone that showed searches on sex hook-up and porn websites. 
  • Parnas and his lawyer provided the contents of his iPhone 11 to lawmakers to help Democrats with their impeachment of President Trump. 
  • Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer invited Parnas to attend the impeachment trial on Wednesday. 
  • Parnas is under indictment in New York on campaign finance-related charges.
Among the trove of iPhone records that Lev Parnas recently gave Congress to help in the impeachment of President Donald Trump are the Soviet-born businessman’s porn files, as well as searches on a sex hookup website shut down by the Justice Department, according to a Daily Caller News Foundation review of the files.
The files show searches conducted on Backpage.com, a website called FreeFuckBuddyTonight.com, and Porn Hub, the popular porn website.
The searches on Backpage were conducted for potential hook-ups in London, Ft. Lauderdale, the Florida Keys, and West Palm Beach, where Parnas resides, a database of the iPhone files shows.
The searches were likely conducted before January 2017, when Backpage took down its sex work advertisements because of allegations that it contributed to the sex trafficking of minors. The Justice Department unsealed charges against Backpage on April 9, 2018.
The documents do not show whether Parnas met with anyone from the hook-up websites, and there is no indication of any wrongdoing on his part. But the files paint a more complete picture of the information that Parnas has provided to Congress in his pro-impeachment crusade.
Democrats and news outlets alike have recently embraced the formerly pro-Trump Parnas because of information he has provided about Ukraine-related work he conducted with Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani in 2018 and 2019.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer invited Parnas and his lawyer, Joseph Bondy, to attend the Trump impeachment trial on Wednesday. Parnas was unable to attend because of restrictions stemming from his legal proceedings in the Southern District of New York. He instead waited in Schumer’s offices.
A grand jury in New York indicted Parnas and three associates on Oct. 10 on illegal campaign finance charges. Investigators cracked Parnas’s iPhone on Dec. 3.
