The report, obtained Friday by NBC News, does not conclude that the directed energy was delivered intentionally, by a weapon, as some U.S. officials have long believed. Many reported hearing a loud sound and feeling pressure in their heads, and then experienced dizziness, unsteady gait and visual disturbances. CIA officials consider that a promising lead but not conclusive evidence. The study examined four possibilities to explain the symptoms: Infection, chemicals, psychological factors and microwave energy. Alexandre Meneghini / ReutersElectromagnetic energy, including frequencies such as radio and microwave, have been considered a leading possibility since the earliest days of the mystery.

WASHINGTON — U.S. intelligence shows that China has conducted "human testing" on members of the People's Liberation Army in hopes of developing soldiers with "biologically enhanced capabilities," the nation's top intelligence official said Friday. Specifically, the scholars explored Chinese research using the gene-editing tool CRISPR, short for "clusters of regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats." "Chinese military scientists and strategists have consistently emphasized that biotechnology could become a 'new strategic commanding heights of the future Revolution in Military Affairs,'" the scholars wrote, quoting a 2015 article in a military newspaper. The overall message of Ratcliffe's opinion piece is that China is a dangerous adversary that threatens American economic and national security. In an interview with Fox News, Ratcliffe urged President-elect Joe Biden to "be honest" about China.

Rosenberg said Mueller made it clear he would not discuss the investigation he led, and Rosenberg, who once worked for Mueller at the FBI, didn't ask about it. In a 2018 story in Wired magazine, the writer Garrett Graff interviewed men who served with Mueller in Vietnam service in detail. His survival in Vietnam, Mueller said, led him to want to further serve his country. Weissmann questioned why the office didn't subpoena Trump to compel his testimony under oath before a federal grand jury. The second part of the Mueller interview, in which he discusses his term as FBI director after 9/11, will post later, Rosenberg said.

They argue soon-to-be-former President Trump already poses a danger because of the secrets he currently possesses, and they say it would be foolish to trust him with more sensitive information. Goldsmith and other experts noted that Trump has a history of carelessly revealing classified information. said Priess, who wrote "The President's Book of Secrets," about presidents and intelligence. It's unclear whether former President Barack Obama has received intelligence briefings after he left office, but President Trump said in March that he hasn't consulted his predecessors about coronavirus or anything else. Like so much with Trump, his track record of sharing secrets has been unprecedented in American presidential history.

WASHINGTON — Joe Biden has selected Avril Haines, who held top national security jobs under President Obama, to become director of national intelligence in the Biden administration. Having served Obama as a national security lawyer and deputy CIA director, Haines, 51, has been playing a key national security role in the Biden transition. But the DNI does not run covert operations ordered by the president — the CIA director retains that power. The Biden transition announced six different Biden cabinet picks on Monday, including Haines, "all people who keep to his promise of making sure his administration looks like America." She served as deputy CIA director from 2013 to 2017, and was the first woman to hold that office.

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.

National security adviser Robert O'Brien walks after being interviewed at the White House in Washington, U.S., May 24, 2020. President Donald Trump's National Security Council is preparing for "a very professional transition," because it looks like Joe Biden has won the election, national security adviser Robert O'Brien said in comments that aired Monday. O'Brien also provided what for many will be a surprising assessment of his boss as a student of national security information. O'Brien said his approach as national security adviser was not to steer Trump, but to empower him. "He had been president of the United States for three years when I joined him as national security adviser," he said.

Barr on Monday issued a memo authorizing prosecutors "to pursue substantial allegations of voting and vote tabulation irregularities prior to the certification of elections." Barr, who's come under fire by right-wing media for not bolstering the president's evidence-free claims of widespread voter fraud in the 2020 election, declared that guidance outdated. "Such a passive and delayed enforcement approach can result in situations in which election misconduct cannot realistically be rectified," Barr said in the memo. A DOJ official told NBC News that the memo from Barr does not allege that there are substantial irregularities in the election. Nothing here should be taken as an indication that the Department has concluded that voting irregularities have impacted the outcome of any election."
