Subject: Your Morning Intelligence Brief (April 10th, 2017

April 10th, 2017

Ed Note: Are you banging your head against the (Trump) wall yet? Analysts from every corner of the world are trying to figure-out what the hell is going-on in the Trump White House and how and why the missile launch came about so quickly without a thorough forensic investigation of the chemical attack. Certain congressmen are crying foul that President Trump should have received Congressional approval, while others like ISIS McCain and limp wristed Lindsey Graham are foaming at the mouth with delight, Graham saying, "There's a new sheriff in town !"

Alex Jones (InfoWars) claims he has high level intel, "the ground war in Syria has begun with 150,000 U.S. troops being mobilized." And as we know...President Trump keeps his military strategies secret, therefore....we shall see if Alex is on target in coming days. If he is right, we are closer to WWIII than ever before. 

We are about to enter a dangerous war footing as Dems want more fireworks in Syria and South Korea is saying, the sudden turn around of a U.S. Navy Fleet, heading back towards the Korean Peninsula "requires approval by South Korea." WHAT????

China reports that they are prepared to act with U.S. concerning North Korea. (See Beijing Report below)

Many of you offered great comments this weekend, many divided....and if you want to debate the Syrian issue worldwide for all to hear, (including the NSA) be prepared to call-in to The Power Hour Radio Show this morning and speak your mind.

Maybe Alex Jones will call-in to discuss his intel.

All numbers and other information available at the bottom of today's brief. I will be listening from my bunker in the desert on 7.490 Mhz. --Dave Bertrand  #Dave Bertrand (@bertranddave1)

McMaster Manipulating Intelligence Reports

H. R. McMaster Manipulating Intelligence Reports to Trump, Wants 150,000 Ground Soldiers in Syria Current National Security Adviser Herbert Raymond “H. R.” McMaster is manipulating intelligence reports given to President Donald Trump, Cernovich Media can now report. McMaster is plotting how to sell a massive ground war in Syria to President Trump with the help of disgraced former CIA director and convicted criminal David Petraeus, who mishandled classified information by sharing documents with his mistress.

As NSA, McMaster’s job is to synthesize intellience reports from all other agencies. President Trump is being given an inaccurate picture of the situation in Syria, as McMaster is seeking to involve the U.S. in a full scale war in Syria.
The McMaster-Petraeus plan calls for 150,000 American ground troops in Syria.

Many special operations veterans including General Joseph Votel have raised serious concerns about McMaster’s plans for Syria.

Sources also suggest that McMaster is sharing classified information with Petraeus, whose security clearance was revoked.
Petraeus’ influence in the NSC remains strong.

McMaster was called Petraeus’ golden child by some commenters, noting the strong influence Petraeus had over McMaster. Petraeus was considered for the position of NSA, but withdrew his name from consideration once McMaster’s name was included on the short-list. McMaster’s appointment allowed Petraeus to maintain control over the NSC without bringing his considerable baggage to the position.

Derek Harvey, the top Middle East adviser in the NSC, has close ties with Petraeus and is close with McMaster. (Harvey reportedly faces a massive EEO complaint from subordinates, although that investigation remains open.) Harvey and McMaster have been trying to subvert Joint Chiefs Chairman General Joseph Dunford and Secretary of Defense James Mattis. Mattis and Dunford support working with our allies in the fight against ISIS. Harvey and McMaster are advocating for a massive American-only ground force.

Two men were standing in between another U.S.-led war in the Middle East — General Mike Flynn and Steve Bannon.
Flynn was removed after Susan Rice unmasked classified information concerning him. Bannon’s role within the White House was weakened by McMaster, who demanded Bannon be removed from his advisory position at NSC.
McMaster’s friends in the media, as part of a broader strategy to increase McMaster’s power, have claimed Jared Kushner and Bannon had a major falling out. In fact Kushner and Bannon are united in their opposition to McMaster’s plan.

If McMaster and Petraeus have their way, America will find itself in another massive war in the Middle East.

An Unhinged McCain Calls for More War in Syria, Says Russia is Guilty of War Crimes

General McMaster Ties Himself into a Pretzel Trying to Explain Syrian Strategy




Trump Surrenders Element of Surprise by Warning Russia of Planned Strike on Its Ally Syria
The Intercept - A Pentagon spokesman, Capt. Jeff Davis, said in a statement that a pre-exiting “deconfliction” channel, set up to keep American and Russian jets from crossing paths in the skies over Syria, was used to disclose the planned attack to Russia. “U.S. military planners took precautions to minimize risk to Russian or Syrian personnel located at the airfield,” Davis said…. It is not yet clear how far ahead of time the Russians were warned, but a witness told Riam Dalati of the BBC that a convoy of Russian military vehicles left the base at some stage yesterday [Friday]. Although at least six Syrian airmen died in the attack, according to a Syrian military spokesman, it seems inconceivable that the Russian military personnel fleeing the base would not have alerted their allies to what was coming.
Russia Suspends Critical Military Communication Channel Western Journalism - After President Donald Trump ordered an airstrike on a Syrian airbase early Friday, the Russian government has responded by suspending a communications channel with the United States designed to avoid midair incidents between Russian and U.S. pilots in the skies over Syria…. The strike… left Russian President Vladimir Putin with the choice between maintaining improved ties with the U.S. and defending Russia’s ally in Assad. Putin, it seems, chose the latter, deciding to risk a clash with Trump. Russia’s decision to suspend the hotline means Russian and U.S. planes could fly dangerously close to each other during combat missions, increasing the chances of collisions in Syrian airspace…. The communications line, established in October 2015, has helped avoid incidents between Russian and American planes, and allowed the United States to notify Russia it would attack the Syrian airfield, allowing Russian troops there to move to safety.
Russia and Iran warn US they will 'respond with force' if red lines crossed in Syria again
The Independent - Following Friday’s cruise missile strike on a Syrian airbase, in retaliation for the chemical attack on Khan Sheikhoun earlier in the week, the alliance supporting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad made a joint statement threatening action in response to “any breach of red lines from whoever it is”…. Britain, the US and France accused Mr. Assad’s regime of gassing civilians in the opposition-held town, but Damascus claimed it destroyed its toxic stockpiles following an international agreement struck in 2013. The Russian defence ministry put out a competing version of events claiming legitimate Syrian air strikes against “terrorists” had struck a warehouse used to produce and store shells containing toxic gas, which were allegedly being sent to Iraq. The joint command centre also said on Sunday the missile strike would not deter it from “liberating” Syria, and that the US military presence in the north of the country amounted to an illegal “occupation”. Mr. Putin and Iranian leader Hassan Rouhani have called for an objective investigation into the chemical attack.
North Korea: Friendship with Syria ‘Will Be Strengthened and Developed’
Breitbart - The government of North Korea sent a “message of greeting to Bashar al-Assad” on Thursday meant to congratulate Assad for “the 70th anniversary of the [Baath Arab Socialist] Party’s founding.” North Korean state media published the congratulatory note on Friday, following the Trump administration’s decision to conduct airstrikes on a key Assad military base…. “Today the Party is resolutely struggling to courageously shatter the vicious challenge and aggressive moves of the hostile forces at home and abroad and defend the country’s sovereignty and territorial integrity under the leadership of Bashar Al-Assad,” Kim, the dictator of North Korea, is said to have written to Assad. The South Korean news agency Yonhap noted that observers see the note as “showing friendly ties between Pyongyang and Damascus” in a particularly volatile political moment for Assad… North Korea’s ambassador to Moscow also weighed in on Trump’s airstrikes specifically, threatening a “most ruthless blow” against the United States should the United States exercises “even the smallest provocation” against Pyongyang, a sign that North Korea interpreted the attack on Syria as a warning to other rogue states like itself that America was not afraid of military responses to international human rights law violations.
US Sends Aircraft Carrier Toward North Korea "In Response to Recent Provocations"
Zero Hedge - One day after NBC reported that the National Security Council had presented Trump with three options vis-a-vis North Korea, namely i) put American nukes in South Korea , ii) kill Kim Jong-un or iii) use the CIA to infiltrate North Korea to sabotage or take out key infrastructure, a US carrier group has departed Singapore and is headed for North Korea…. The move of the USS Carl Vinson "is in response to recent North Korean provocations", an official told CNN. "We feel the increased presence is necessary," the official said, citing North Korea's worrisome behavior."…. The Vinson strike group will operate in the Western Pacific rather than executing previously planned port visits to Australia, Pacific Command said…. This year North Korean officials, including leader Kim Jong Un, have repeatedly indicated an intercontinental ballistic missile test or something similar could be coming, possibly as soon as April 15, the 105th birthday of North Korea's founding president…. At the end of March, satellite images collected by 38 North [website of the US-Korea Institute at Sais] suggested that North Korea was actively preparing for a nuclear test.
Over 37 Killed In Two Coptic Christian Church Bombings In Egypt; ISIS Claims Responsibility
Zero Hedge - At least 37 people were killed and more than 100 injured in two separate bombings at Christian Coptic churches packed with worshippers in northern Egypt one week before Coptic Easter, Reuters reports. The first bombing, in Tanta, a Nile Delta city less than 100 kilometers outside Cairo, killed at least 26 and injured at least 78, Egypt's Ministry of Health said. The second, carried out just a few hours later by a suicide bomber in Alexandria, hit the historic seat of the Coptic Pope, killing 11, including three police officers, and injuring 35, the ministry added. In a separate explosion, one person has been reported killed in a bombing of the Tanta police academy. Shortly after the explosions, ISIS via its al-Amaq news agency, claimed responsibility for the bombings. The attacks are the latest in a series of assaults on Egypt's Christian minority, which makes up around 10% of the population and has been repeatedly targeted by Islamic extremists…. The deadly bombing take place as the Islamic State branch in Egypt appears to be stepping up attacks and threats against Christians. In February, Christian families and students fled Egypt's North Sinai province after a spate of targeted killings.
‘Far-Left Militia’ Attacks Le Pen Rally in Corsica
Breitbart - Skirmishes broke out on Saturday ahead of a campaign rally by French far-right leader Marine Le Pen, prompting the removal of more than a dozen protesters and the evacuation of the hall in Ajaccio, Corsica. Latest polls ahead of the April-May French presidential election show the race tightening, with Le Pen — leader of the anti-immigrant National Front — neck-and-neck with centrist Emmanuel Macron, who is expected to beat her in the runoff. Around 50 people demonstrated in front of the venue in Ajaccio, chanting “We do not want the National Front”, according to local newspaper Corse Matin. Some of them managed to enter the hall where Le Pen was expected to speak. They clashed with Le Pen’s security team and fired teargas, prompting the evacuation of the hall, the newspaper said.
