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 16, 2017, 6:34 AM (IDT)

US intelligence agencies are said to be keeping some sensitive information away from President Donald Trump over concerns about potential leaks, The Wall Street Journal reported on Wednesday night.
The newspaper said current and former US officials have said their hesitations are due in part to lingering questions over possible links between Trump associates and Russia, which they said could potentially compromise the security of such classified information.
Specifically, the officials cited by The Journal said they were hesitant to reveal the “sources and methods” that intelligence agencies use to collect information.


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.

    Actually I think they’re protecting Obama and his OSA organization made up of trained professional anarchists Saul Alinski style. Hold on to your life jackets folks, were in for a blow. Something is going down big league … and I wouldn’t want to be on the membership roles of the OSA or have a career in any one of the ABC intelligence agency’s about now.
