DEBKAfile was founded by a team of journalists in June 2000 as an independent Internet Web site, providing an intelligence and security news service. February 15, 2017, 5:10 PM (IDT)
In a series of tweets on Wednesday, US President Donald Trump denounced his country's intelligence agencies in an unprecedented manner, saying “The real scandal here is that classified information is illegally given out by “intelligence” like candy. Very un-American!” He also alleged that two major US news organizations that are critical of him are involved, claiming “Information is being illegally given to the failing @nytimes & @washingtonpost by the intelligence community (NSA and FBI?). Just like Russia”
Our unique angle on these subjects – and strong intelligence dimension – has earned DEBKAfile a global reputation and a steady readership – which skyrockets in times of crisis.
