[Algemeiner] The frequent New York Times
...which still proudly displays Walter Duranty's Pulitzer prize... opinion contributor who was arrested earlier this month and charged with acting as an unregistered foreign agent of the Iranian government acknowledges that he was paid by the Iranian mission at the United Nations ...the Oyster Bay money pit... "I received checks from the Mission’s UN account and it never occurred to me that I was doing anything illegal," the New York Times opinion writer, Kaveh Afrasiabi, wrote in a statement to the Algemeiner.
He called the government’s claim that he was a secret Iranian agent "absurd" and "wild."
"Whatever I did was perfectly legal and fully transparent," Afrasiabi said, saying that he had believed the Foreign Agents Registration Act "only applied to those engaging in lobbying efforts on behalf of a foreign government, which I never did."
A New York Times spokesperson did not respond to a query about whether the newspaper, which according to a search on its website Monday morning had not yet covered the federal criminal complaint against [Kaveh] Afrasiabi, plans to tell its readers about the situation. The spokesperson also did not respond to a question about whether the newspaper plans to publish an editor’s note indicating that the opinion pieces came from someone who was getting paid by the Iranian government.
Afrasiabi said the payments from the Iranian government — about $265,000 since 2007, plus health insurance coverage, federal prosecutors alleged — had not swayed his writing. "At no point in my professional career, I have been moved by anything other than my rather puritanical moral responsibility as an intellectual," he said.
Given the Trump Admin. properly addressed the IRANIAN International Terrorist and spread of Radicalized Islam head on and not with plane loads of $$$$. Iran planting enemy agents in our media to dump crap on Trump and MAGA supporters is logical 5th column plan.
Now the 3 BIGGER questions.
1. Who on the Editorial Team knew and for how long?
2. Will they be brought in also for questioning?
3. If found guilty will these person be fired?

In a video released on Tuesday by the RuVesna.Su YouTube channel, the Russian Aerospace Forces can be seen zeroing in on Islamic State targets in the Badiya al-Sham region and then destroying them.

[AlMasdar] The Ottoman Turkish Armed Forces, alongside their allied Syrian fighters, continued their campaign in northern Syria this week, hitting a number of targets around two key towns controlled by the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) east of the Euphrates.
According to reports from al-Raqqa front, the Ottoman Turkish army and their allied Syrian forces launched several artillery and rocket strikes on the SDF’s positions near the town of Ain Issa, causing powerful explosions that could be heard as far as the administrative capital.
The Ottoman Turkish army and their allied forces then expanded their attacks to the western countryside of the al-Hasakah Governorate, where they hit the Syrian Democratic Forces’ positions near the key town of Tal Tamr, which also has a Syrian Arab Army (SAA) presence.
These attacks by the Ottoman Turkish Armed Forces have become more prevalent over the last few months, prompting local residents in Tal Tamr and Ain Issa to flee their homes in fear of a potential offensive led by Ankara.
Furthermore, it has prompted the Russian military police to get more involved, especially in the Tal Tamr countryside, where they have mobilized a large force to patrol the areas and ensure the safety of the local residents.
While The Sick Man of Europe Turkey ...the decaying remnant of the Ottoman Empire... has not commented on whether or not they will launch another offensive east of the Euphrates, all indications from their military moves point to a new operation to capture Ain Issa in the coming months.
[AlMasdar] Heavy festivities broke out between the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and Ottoman Turkish-backed forces in the southern countryside of the Idlib Governorate on Tuesday, resulting in a long exchange of hostilities between the two sides.

(NLF) traded attacks near the towns of al-Fateera and al-Bara’a, along with Kafr Nabl, i the southern countryside of the Idlib Governorate.
These attacks did not result in heavy casualties for either side, but it did prompt both sides to move in forces to the area around the Jabal al-Zawiya region of southern Idlib.
Since the start of the new, the Jabal al-Zawiya front has experienced an increase in hostilities between the Syrian Arab Army and Ottoman Turkish-backed holy warriors, which has left region of the country relatively unstable.

Earlier, SANA quoted a source as saying that this group had recently attacked "civilian and military buses on the international road of Deir Ezzor-Palmyra, in the al-Shoula area."
Last Sunday, a bus carrying Syrian soldiers and civilians came under fire from a terrorist group in the al-Malhah — al-Shula area, on the Deir Ezzor-Palmyra Highway.
A military source announced at the time that the terrorist attack killed three soldiers and maimed ten others.
SANA later claimed the bully boyz reached the highway from the U.S.-controlled al-Tanf region.

[AlAhram] Citing its news hound in Hasakah, SANA said that the SDF opened fire to disperse the protesters with no reports on injuries yet
Crowds of people held a protest on Wednesday against the Kurdish militia siege of government-controlled zones in Syria's northeastern province of Hasakah, state news agency SANA reported.
The people protested against the siege imposed by the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) and the Kurdish security force, Assayish, which led to preventing the entry of food and other necessities to government areas in Hasakah.
The students have also been denied access to their schools as a result of the siege that has been in place for two weeks.
Citing its news hound in Hasakah, SANA said that the SDF opened fire to disperse the protesters with no reports on injuries yet.
The SDF controls large swathes of Hasakah while the Syrian government controls a few areas in Hasakah, including the airport of the city of Qamishli.
Recently, tension started brewing between both sides as the Syrian government has slammed in a statement the SDF due to their policies and the support they get from the US.
The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) dispersed protesters on Wednesday that attended a demonstration against the siege imposed on the city by their troops.

The reports said the SDF troops and Asayish police forces fired gunshots in the area to disperse the crowd and put an end to the demonstration on Wednesday morning.
The reports said the protest was held on Wednesday against the backdrop of the Syrian Democratic Forces’ decision to close the exits from the government-held areas of the administrative capital, which they said has resulted in the blockage of food and supplies to the people there.
The protesters tried to break the siege on the security square in the city, amid chants in support of the Syrian government and Hereditary President-for-Life Bashir Pencilneck al-Assad Supressor of the Damascenes... , the reports from the administrative capital added.

What limits? The whole point of the exercise was to make President Obama look good to his ignorant admirers while putting no constraints on Iran whatsoever.

The U.S. military's Central Command later published images of the bomber flying alongside Royal Saudi Air Force F-15s.
While not mentioning Iran in its statement, Central Command said the flight was meant to ``showcase the U.S. commitment to regional security.''
The flights, the third-such operation this year, had become common in the last months of former President Donald Trump ...Perhaps no man has ever had as much fun being president of the US...
