Department of Homeland Security investigating swastika found inside DHS building in DC: report

Published

on

The federal government is investigating a swastika found inside a Department of Homeland Security building.

“A hand-drawn swastika was found on the third floor of a Department of Homeland Security building on Friday in Washington, a government official told CNN. Some staffers in the building, on the St. Elizabeth campus in Washington, were notified about the Nazi symbol in an email from Principal Deputy Undersecretary for the Office of Intelligence and Analysis Brian Murphy, which was obtained by CNN,” Jake Tapper reported Friday evening.

“Unfortunately, today a hand drawn swastika was located on the third floor,” Murphy wrote. “First, I want to repeat what (Under Secretary for Intelligence and Analysis David Glawe), the Secretary, and many others in the Department have said in the past: there is no room in the workplace for such symbols of hate. And there is no room in the workplace for those who ascribe to such a thing.”

An employee commented on the article — and accidentally replied to everyone.

“Check out the latest [Intelligence and Analysis] insanity — as if leadership really cares,” the employee wrote. “I guess I should not be surprised.”

A woman who claimed to be a doctor was chastised for not wearing a mask at a Costco store.

Video of the incident was shared on Twitter on Tuesday.

In the video, a man encourages the woman to put on her mask, which she is holding in her hand. The woman's elderly mother also appears mask-free in the video.

"Call the police," the woman says in a mocking tone. "Shame me like an ass, go ahead."

"You can put it on right now, ma'am," the cameraman insists.

"I'll do that when I'm ready," she replies. "Do you understand science?"

"Science?" the man remarks. "Maybe better than you do. Apparently, I'm the one protecting other people by wearing a mask."

Trump admin urged CIA to share intelligence with the Kremlin — and took no action against Russia arming the Taliban: report

Published

on

U.S. intel officials have been alleging that according to their sources, the Russian government offered a bounty to Taliban extremists if they would kill U.S. troops in Afghanistan. Just Security discussed these allegations with some former Trump Administration officials, trying to get some insights on what President Donald Trump and his officials knew about Russian government activity in Afghanistan.

“Why would the Russian government think it could get away with paying bounties to the Taliban to kill American soldiers?,” Just Security’s Ryan Goodman writes. “One answer to that question may be the extraordinary response that Moscow received when the Trump Administration learned of a precursor to the bounty operation. From mid-2017 and into 2018, Pentagon officials became increasingly confident in intelligence reports that the Kremlin was arming the Taliban, which posed a significant threat to American and coalition forces on the ground in Afghanistan.”
