Sources suggest that members of the IRGC already are in Syria providing intelligence and specialized training to Syrian troops.

Former American ambassador to the United Nations, John Bolton, accused the Obama administration of intentionallyhighly sensitive Israeli intelligence information, in an with FOX News.According to the reports, Azerbaijan has recently granted Israel access to air bases along its border with Iran, which would eliminate the need for Israel to refuel during the of a possible and would significantly improve the chances of its success.
Bolton, who refrained from stating whether or not he believes the reports to be true, highlighted the fact that the reports were leaked by United States intelligence officials.
He noted that about a month ago, United States Defense Secretary Leon Panetta expressed his belief that an Israeli attack is most likely to occur during the spring months of April, May or June.
Bolton said that because the “Obama administration’s private efforts to pressure Israel not to attack Iran were failing, decided to go public” and asserted that such statements are part of the administration’s “campaign against an Israeli attack.”
He continued to state that “the Obama administration has long believed that an Israeli attack [would be] worse than an Iranian nuclear weapon” and that the pressure American has put on Israel, behind the scenes, has been “merciless.”
However, because the Obama administration is realizing that but that the Israeli government will do what it feels necessary “has torked it up a notch and is now going to reveal very sensitive, very important information, that will allow Iran to defeat an Israeli attack.”

Schools in northern Brazil are now embedding their uniforms with locator chips that allow the tracking and monitoring of their students. Advertised as a “way of informing parents in case their children skip school”, the widespread use of these devices and the information they can potentially gather is rather unsettling. There no “off function” on these chips. I read some comments stating that these chips will “help finding kidnapped kids”. Really? What if the kidnappers made the kid, like, um, NOT wear the shirt?Lame excuses to hide the real agenda here, constantly increasing surveillance and monitoring in the name of “security”. Here’s an article on the “intelligent uniforms” that are actually worn by 20,000 students and required on all 43,000 of the Brazilian locale in 2013.Radio frequency chips in “intelligent uniforms” let a computer know when children enter school and it sends a text message to their cell phones. Parents are also alerted if kids don’t show up 20 minutes after classes begin with the following message: “Your child has still not arrived at school.”
A coalition of organizations led by officials at the Rutherford Institute is urging members of Congress not to even consider plans to revive the failed Real ID Act of 2005, which mandated “costly and restrictive” nationwide standards for a drivers’ license database.Although the law gave states three years to comply with “restrictive federal licensing standards” and create a national database of license information, individual birth certificates and other personal information, it never has been completed.The plan, although made into law, never has been implemented, and according to John Whitehead of the Rutherford Institute, half the states adopted resolutions or other prohibitions on the federal plan.Further, “they believed it would facilitate tracking of data on individuals and bring government into the very center of every citizen’s life.”
