In April Senator Richard Black wrote a letter to Syrian President Assad to thank the Syrian Arab Army for its extraordinary gallantry and heroism demonstrated in conducting military operations in Qalamoun. These military operations have led to the rescue of the Christian community who was imprisoned for a lot of time by the Islamic extremists.
The Senate released only the first 500 pages, and the entire report is 6,000 pages. Americans are wary of the situation, they will not play with fire, but at the same time they cannot close this case completely, that's why they release bits of information. Obama is unable to do much in terms of law to make some fundamental changes
It is always commendable when a person or a country comes clean, owns up, admits it was wrong and promises never to do the same thing again. From this viewpoint, the USA should be congratulated.

Ms. Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka, Executive Director UN Women - As leaders from around the world gather in Lima, Peru this week to discuss global cooperation in addressing climate change, a woman in Guatemala will struggle to feed her family from a farm plot that produces less each season.
Ecuador's new Superintendent of Information and Communication, veteran journalist Carlos Ochoa, is no passive bureaucrat.

America is a police state. When they teach Russia democracy or human rights from Washington, it raises rejection and resentment.

Many initiatives of the West are a threat to Russia. The Russian Federation withdrew from the Nuclear Summit 2016, at which the United States intended to resort to decision-making mechanisms, from which Russia does not profit.

Those who think that "the President knows" can test their conviction by trying to keep up with the daily announcements from all departments and agencies of the government.
