DEBKAfile was founded by a team of journalists in June 2000 as an independent Internet Web site, providing an intelligence and security news service. March 10, 2017, 10:15 PM (IDT)

CENTCOM chief US Gen. Joseph Votel sad “Iran’s malign influence is the most significant threat to Middle East Security,” in a briefing to the Senate Armed Services Committee Thursday. While reviewing the impact of the Islamist State and other Islamist terrorist groups, the general focused on “a range of malign activities perpetrated by Iran and its proxies,” adding, “It is my view that Iran poses the greatest long-term threat to stability in this part of the world.” Iran’s support of the Assad regime are parts of its “malign influence,“ he said. 

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.

    Votel is a Zionist-owned lying sack of shit. He should ask himself if Iran is such a menace that never attacked anyone then why is Israel the good guys when they are the ones behind 911. Votel is a stooge for the NWO and a liar. No surprise because he does not represent America or it’s constitution for which in theory he pledged to protect and defend. What a joke this guy is…
