The U.S.-Russia agreement to dismantle Syria's chemical weapons is reigniting a controversy over the 2003 covert operation by Russian special operations forces to remove Iraqi weapons — including chemical arms — and move them to Syria and Lebanon prior to the Iraq War.
A Pentagon-sponsored report warns that the United States faces new threats from mass destruction weapons in the form of cyber, electronic and financial attacks, in addition to more well-known dangers from nuclear, chemical and biological WMD arms.
The Pentagon is investigating the joint avionics venture between General Electric and a Chinese company that was linked in the past to U.S. arms proliferation sanctions.
"There's no question that there was a financial terrorism component to the 2008 economic crisis," Mr. Freeman told Inside the Ring.
