World War 3 news with Iran Putin and North Korea

"The political and security situation in Afghanistan will also nearly certainly deteriorate through 2018, even with a modest increase in the military assistance by the United States and its partners", Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats said at the hearing of the Senate Intelligence Committee. Security has been beefed up in and around the region subsequently with an aircraft carrier battle group and submarine station in the location to head off any attempt to attack the U.S. In some cases, Russian intelligence actors have masqueraded as third parties, hiding behind false online personas created to cause the victim to misattribute the source of the attack.

Daniel Coats, Director of US National Intelligence, claimed a large amount of America's spy resources has been dedicated to "solving" the problem posed by Pyongyang.

On North Korea, Coats called the threat posed from the nation's advancing weapons program "potentially existential threat".

Coats, however, described the threat as potentially "existential".

Gen. Vincent Stewart and National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency Director Robert Cardillo at Thursday's Senate hearing.

However, a joint statement by U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Secretary of Defense James Mattis and Coats said last month that U.S. President Donald Trump aims to use economic sanctions and diplomatic measures to pressure the DPRK to dismantle its nuclear and missile programs.

Iran is working on development of an intercontinental ballistic missile that could carry nuclear weapons.

"The intelligence community assesses that the political and security situation in Afghanistan will nearly certainly deteriorate through 2018, even with a modest increase in military assistance by the United States and its partners", he said.

President Donald Trump is now weighing an increase of 3,000 to 5,000 U.S. troops in Afghanistan in an effort to stabilize the fight against the Taliban and terror groups there.

Asked if he promised to inform the Intelligence Committee of any efforts to interfere in the Federal Bureau of Investigation's probe into the Russian meddling and whether anyone close to Trump colluded in it, McCabe said simply, "I absolutely do".

Coats also says the deal has enhanced transparency of Iran's nuclear activities.

CIA Director Mike Pompeo gave a more positive assessment of the Chinese efforts to rein in the North, saying the country has "made efforts in a way that they have not made before". He said that China still needs to do more to pressure North Korea before it will change its behavior and can do more.

Upton and Long were among four House members who met with Trump at the White House. "That's just not constructive. Dave Brat, R-Va. "We will get it done". "From my point of view, we pretty well got our clock cleaned", said Sen.
