In Mid-April 2019 the U.S. Congress voted to cut off funds going to the U.S. support of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) and United Arab Emirates (UAE) war efforts in Yemen. The source of this idiocy is the sophisticated dis-information efforts put out by the Houthi rebels in Yemen, their terrorism supporting Iranian benefactors, […]
About Barry Webb
Barry Webb has logged a 25-year career as an Arabic Translator/Analyst for the National Security Agency and other intelligence agencies where he held top secret and above clearances. He has worked military intelligence, counter terrorism, diplomatic intelligence, and economic intelligence in both sigint and osint formats and has lived, worked, and studied in the Arab Middle East for half a dozen years. Along with two colleagues he compiled the nation’s first terrorism data base.
He has two MA degrees, one in Ancient History, and the other in Middle Eastern Studies. He has also taught some school along the way. He is currently a Senior Fellow with the Washington based “Americans for Intelligence Reform.”
Mr. Webb began studying the Qur’an in Arabic in the mid-70s in Egypt from a Muslim who tried (and failed) to convert him. But, since then, Mr. Webb has continued to study the Qur’an and Islam. He has read the Qur’an front to back numerous times in both English and Arabic.
After retiring he has continued to follow the rise in terrorism around the world, and kept his eye on events in the Middle East via Arabic news sources such as the satellite TV stations of al-Jazeera and al-Arabiyya as well as Arabic print media over the internet. In addition, he has also read countless books and articles in English on Islam and terrorism.
All of these experiences and studies combined with our government’s refusal at all levels to understand the issue have scared the “you-know-what” out of him which in turn inspired him to write his recently published book “CONFESSIONS OF AN (EX) NSA SPY: Why America and its allies are losing the war on Terror,” and his soon to-be-published book “CLASH OF CIVILIZATIONS 2.0: The Arab/Islamic View.”

News has recently broken that a so-called “whistleblower,” Tricia Newbold, has come forward to identify Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner as one who had been denied security clearance by unidentified “career officials.” Carl Kline, who headed the Trump White House’s personnel security office overruled the “concerns” of these “career officials” allegedly under Trump’s orders. Perhaps Newbold […]

The first city, obviously is Istanbul, and the “murder,” if that is what is really was, was that of Jamal Khashoqji. The second city is Buenos Aires, and that murder will be exposed later in this essay. The purpose of this essay will not be to determine the right or wrong of what happened in […]
