    Default Mueller looking into secret Seychelles meeting

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/world...az_most&wpmk=1


    Special counsel Robert S. Mueller III has gathered evidence that a secret meeting in Seychelles just before the inauguration of Donald Trump was an effort to establish a back channel between the incoming administration and the Kremlin apparently contradicting statements made to lawmakers by one of its participants, according to people familiar with the matter.

    Which proves that there can't have been (much) collusion during the campaign, because they hadn't set up the covert secret squirrel back channel yet. Or at least proves that any collusion wasn't set up properly enough to be optimally effective.

    The participant who evidently mislead the lawmakers was the mercenary Erik Prince. A thoroughly miserable creature.

    Something just made me think of the cone of silence.
    There is no rational, logical, or physical description of how free will could exist. It therefore makes no sense to praise or condemn anyone on the grounds they are a free willed self that made one choice but could have chosen something else. There is no evidence that such a situation is possible in our Universe. Demonstrate otherwise and I will be thrilled.

    I don't believe this meeting was about back channel anything, I'm guessing it was about the money, it's Trump it's always about the money.

    It can also be used as a hat to foil facial recognition software.



    Of course at the airport you have to wear a plastic one so as not to set off the metal detectors

    He is a bigger jerk than that. Qatar has been an ally of the United States...

    UAE planned to invade Qatar with Blackwater-linked mercenaries: Report

    #GulfTensions


    Plan aimed to overthrow Qatar emir, replace him with ruler subservient to Saudi-led bloc boycotting gas-rich state, ex-official says




    Blackwater founder Erik Prince testifies at a House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform hearing in Washington DC in 2007 (AFP)

    Qatar's former deputy prime minister accused the United Arab Emirates of plotting to invade Doha with an army of mercenaries, according to a report.
    Abdullah bin Hamad al-Attiyah levelled the charges on Wednesday in a report published by Spanish daily ABC.
    The UAE, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Egypt imposed a blockade and economic sanctions on Qatar in June, accusing it of supporting "extremism" and being too close to Iran, charges Doha has denied.
    Attiyah said that the UAE hired a "Blackwater-linked" private security contractor to train thousands of mercenaries to invade Qatar with the aim of overthrowing the emir and replacing him with a ruler subservient to the Saudi-led bloc that is boycotting the gas-rich state, the New Arab website reported.
    Attiyah said the plan, which was prepared ahead of the diplomatic spat, was never carried out because US President Donald Trump failed to green-light the assault, the NewArab said.
    An unidentified official source told the daily that the soldiers for hire were trained at an Emirati military base in Liwa in the west of the country by Academi, a US security service company formerly known as Blackwater.
    Blackwater military contractors killed 17 unarmed Iraqi civilians and wounded 20 in a notorious 2007 massacre in Baghdad that prompted the firm to change its name.
    "We estimate that Blackwater trained about 15,000 employees, most of them Colombian and South American," the source told the New Arab.
    Be wary of your critics, at peace with your decisions, and work hard to be a better man.

    Trump doesn't have a clue how to collude effectively. Not to say he didn't try.
