3 yrs ago today, @realDonaldTrump admin (w/ @GenFlynn & #AmbHoekstra) secured my release from a Portuguese prison, hours before my extradition to prison in Italy for the #milanrendition debacle, for which I have been an outspoken critic.

newsweek.com/trump-cia-sabr…
#Trump admin's subsequent efforts for full resolution in my case was abruptly stopped, by same #CIA leadership who years earlier justified a career-enhancing, no-intel-value rendition, that led to the prosecution of us #rankandfile officers in Italian courts.
Because of those efforts, I was optimistic that #Trump admin's position in favor of officers like myself, would reverse the Bush (GOP) & Obama (Dem) precedent of protecting the CIA leadership's #abuseofpower at the cost of rank & file officers.

It remains an unresolved issue.

Do you know most of the designer bags or clothes made in Italy now are actually made by Chinese?

@HarrisSamaras @Harvard @mlipsitch My take: It's a numbers game depending on a number of variables, including:
1. To what extend can #COVID19 be contained outside #China? Here the fast infection-rates in #SouthKorea & #Italy are a concern.
#CoronaVirus
@HarrisSamaras @Harvard @mlipsitch b) Countries like #Indonesia, not taking proper precautions with returnees from #China, are also concerning. #Africa was fairly untouched, but now #COVID19 spreads in #Egypt.
2. How well do countries respond? Some seem to do OK, others seem to have been negligent (see #Italy).
@HarrisSamaras @Harvard @mlipsitch c) Currently #trains from Northern #Italy are still reaching #Germany - This is a great way to spread the risk & make containment difficult.
3. Can countries cope with a bigger number of severley sick people? The South of #Germany only has 60 Iron-Lungs. Not much!

1. ELECTION MEDDLING.
Watching @TheDemocrats get all bent over #Russia interfering in our elections is amusing.
We’ve been doing it to each other for 100 years. Yeah... 😂
FYI @BillClinton moved heaven and earth to get Yeltsin elected in 1996. 😱 #TWGRP

2 If #KnowledgeIsPower then let me Learn ya.
The US actually has a whole division of the #CIA dedicated to #ElectionMeddling.
This throws a little water on #Dems Fake outrage.
It’s called SAC or Special Activities center.
@SenSchumer knows this.
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special_A…
3 If that wasn’t enough, within SAC we have SOG, the Special Operations Group.
(Who makes up these names?)
Guess what they do??
Tactical paramilitary operations.
YUP! 😉
They use brute Force if needed but also Arm and Train rebels.
The most secret #CIA Div.
Think #Syria 👍🏻

⚠️#CoronavirusOutbreak surges. #SouthKorea now has 833 #coronavirus cases, 7 deaths. #Afghanistan, Kuwait & Bahrain now have cases, too.

#Italy has >200 cases, the largest known outbreak outside Asia.

It’s a global #pandemic.

#China postponed the National People’s Congress—their biggest political event—due to #coronavirus.

China’s economy is being hammered. President Xi says the #CoronavirusOutbreak is a “crisis” that would inevitably jolt the country’s economic development.

@911CORLEBRA777 #COVID19
#Afghanistan confirmed its first case of #coronavirus, announced a “state of emergency,” and closed its border with #Iran and halted flights between the 2 countries after at least 1 man who recently came from #Iran was infected.

Afghanistan is NOT equipped to handle #COVID19.😱

🇮🇹#Italia Superspreader #Cluster THREAD 1/7🏨

Drew a #dataviz diagram based on available data* about the #Lombardy cluster, which as of EOD 2/22/20 had 54 cases, including 2 in #Milano, & still an unknown Patient 0.

*plz excuse any possible errors
2/7 This cluster has developed quite rapidly in the town of #Lodi, near #Milan, in the #Lombardy region of #Italy.

The story has shifted several times on Patient 0, but somehow Patient 1 - a 38 y/o male in Lodi - contracted the #COVID19 virus.

When Patient 1 had symptoms...
3/7 ...he went to the #ER at the local Codogno #hospital multiple X, but was sent home with only #antibiotics (which don't work on #COVID19italia)

He then infected his pregnant wife & friends.

Of the 1st group of ~6, all were in serious condition.

#Italy is negotiating to sell two FREMM frigates to #Egypt for around €1.2 billion ($1.3 billion). News of the deal drew criticism in Italy from politicians who have been concerned over human rights abuses in Egypt. defensenews.com/global/europe/… #FreePatrickZaki
The #Egyptian public prosecutor's office is pursuing a criminal investigation into Patrick Zaki, an Egyptian researcher studying in Italy on charges of spreading fake news nytimes.com/reuters/2020/0… #FreePatrickZaki
Zaki was arrested Feb. 7 when he arrived at #Cairo airport on a visit to see his family. A lawyer for @EIPR where Zaki is also a researcher has said that Zaki denied all charges and that his client had mostly been questioned about his human rights work when he was living in Egypt

🗣️Our new book is out today: “#CasaPound Italia: contemporary #Extreme #Right #Politics” co-written by @CaterinaFroio @SciencesPo_CEE Matteo Albanese, Giorgia Bulli and myself @CrexUiO, for @routledgebooks @FFRAFAction (thread 1/15)
shorturl.at/nSW19
@CaterinaFroio @SciencesPo_CEE @CrexUiO @routledgebooks @FFRAFAction The volume presents a theory of contemporary right-wing #extremism that helps understand how a fringe group like CPI has been successful in placing its ideas in public debates in #Italy. shorturl.at/nSW19 (2/15)
@CaterinaFroio @SciencesPo_CEE @CrexUiO @routledgebooks @FFRAFAction We argue that this type of success has to do with #hybridization, which we define as the blurring of five main aspects of ‘#extreme right politics’: #ideology, internal structure, #activism, #mobilization and #communication.

1. The mess in #Libya is at least as complex as the mess in #Afghanistan: In Afghanistan the #Kabul-government, supported by #NATO, controls little more than Kabul.

In #Libya "Prime Minister" Fayez #Sarraj only controls a small part in the North, around #Tripoli.

#AnneWill
2. While Khalifa #Haftar, the commander of the Libyan National Army (#LNA), controls the larger part of #Libya. He does not control greater #Tripoli and in the South local warlords rule.

#AnneWill #LibyaConference
3. To make things more messy:
The "Prime Minister of Tripolis", Fayez #Sarraj, is supported by
#Turkey (troops in Libya)
#Germany
#EU
#Italy
#Qatar
#UN

#Haftar is supported by
#SaudiArabia
#UAE
#Egypt
#Russia (RUS mercenaries in Libya)

#Russiagate
#SpyGate
#Durham #AGBarr

#1. ...will reveal ..a deliberate plot to prevent @realDonaldTrump from gaining the White House & was deliberate.
#2. a criminal conspiracy by senior #CIA and #FBI officials as well as individuals in the Clinton campaign

#3. Durham’s report will make clear that once the original plot failed, and Trump won, the focus of the plot changed to sabotage aimed at getting a sitting President out
of office.

#4. it will be revealed that the “coup plotters” were offended by Mr. Trump and considered him an illegitimate president whom they had a “duty” to remove from office.

#5. Not all of the individuals named in Durham’s report will be former government officials.

The newly released #IGReport noted the material failures of the @FBI—“not only the operational team, but also of the managers and supervisors, including senior officials, in the chain of command”—with regard to the #FISA warrant application on Trump campaign aide @CarterWPage.
#IGHorowitz’s findings were so significant that he recommended the @FBI’s “entire chain of command” outlined in his report to the #DOJ for “consideration of how to assess and address their performance failures.” justice.gov/storage/120919…
