WASHINGTON — A federal watchdog agency has found "a substantial likelihood of wrongdoing" by Trump administration appointees who oversee the Voice of America and other U.S.-funded media outlets. NBC News obtained one of the letters, which was signed by Karen Tanenbaum, an attorney in the retaliation and disclosure unit of the Office of Special Counsel. Pack and USAGM have 60 days to report back to the Office of Special Counsel. Seide said he hoped the finding by the Office of Special Counsel will "have a deterrent effect because it goes a long way to holding individuals accountable." The other foreign-language services are in part designed to provide quality, independent journalism in countries that lack a free press.

WASHINGTON — The Trump administration will temporarily draw down staff from the American Embassy in Baghdad as the fast-approaching anniversary of the U.S. strike on Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani brings concerns of retaliation, two U.S. officials told NBC News on Wednesday. The State Department did not confirm the reduction, telling NBC News that the department does not comment on the details of staffing adjustments. His death prompted outrage in Iran, which retaliated with strikes against U.S. troops in Iraq. American troops left in 2011, but they returned in 2014 after the Islamic State militant group overran large parts of the country. In May 2019, after a series of rocket attacks were launched toward the U.S. embassy in Baghdad, the State Department ordered the departure of "nonemergency" personnel from Iraq.

WASHINGTON — The assassination of a senior Iranian nuclear scientist shocked Iran's leadership but will not derail the country's nuclear program, which has been steadily advancing despite President Donald Trump's "maximum pressure" policy, experts say. The United States and Western governments believe he oversaw a covert nuclear weapons program, which U.S. intelligence agencies say was shut down in 2003. Iran denies it ever had a nuclear weapons program, and it has accused Israel of orchestrating last week's assassination. But Iran's nuclear work continued unabated, and its know-how remains intact, experts said. Iran will be able to resume its nuclear weapons program if that's what Ayatollah Khamenei chooses to do, Lewis wrote.

That’s the message President-elect Joe Biden sent the world as he unveiled key Cabinet and national security picks earlier this week. Foreign governments will know Biden’s team from their time in office under President Barack Obama and other previous administrations. We are on the same page on climate, on Iran, on NATO,” one European official said about the picks. Republican Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida dismissed Biden’s new team members over their track record with China during Obama’s presidency. “Biden’s Cabinet picks went to Ivy League schools, have strong resumes, attend all the right conferences and will be polite and orderly caretakers of America’s decline,” Rubio tweeted.

WASHINGTON — President-elect Joe Biden has promised to rejoin the Iran nuclear agreement if Iran abides by the deal, but both sides will have to race against the clock and navigate a political minefield to reach that goal. Iran and the bombThe 2015 agreement between Iran and world powers lifted punishing economic sanctions on Tehran in return for strict limits on Iran's nuclear activities. If Iran returns to strict compliance with the nuclear deal, the United States would rejoin the agreement as a starting point for follow-on negotiations," Biden wrote. Iran faces shortages of medicine and medical equipment, including insulin, drugs for cancer treatment, influenza vaccine and test kits for the coronavirus, according to Iranian officials. Conservative gainsWithout a deal before Iran's June 2021 elections, Biden may have no willing counterpart to negotiate a deal.
