    Hackers leak emails from UAE ambassador to US
    Hacked emails show close coordination with pro-Israel, anti-Iran think tank.

    Hackers have released the first series of leaked emails from the account of UAE’s ambassador to the United the States Yousef al-Otaiba.

    The Intercept reported on Saturday that the emails released by a group called “Global Leaks” show the relationship between al-Otaiba and a pro-Israel, neoconservative think tank – the Foundation for Defense of Democracies (FDD).

    The hacked emails, some of which date back to 2014, reveal a high-level of backchannel cooperation between the FDD, which is funded by pro-Israel billionaire Sheldon Anderson, and the UAE.

    The sample provided included several emails between Otaiba and Robert Gates, former US defence secretary in the administrations of George Bush and Barack Obama.

        I don’t think I’ve chewed the lady unduly, G. Just noted that whinging doesn’t become her. And Trump hasn’t even jailed her yet.

          Well, of course you don’t watch posted videos, Al, so you won’t know why – but Bj & me know she’s going down, buddy. Big time. It’s all finally unravelling on the interweb. 🕵 All coming out. Just a matter of time now … probably any day now.
