An Escalating Threat: Hacking By A New Generation Of Nations

 Cache   
As if digital threats from the main U.S. cyberspace adversaries weren’t enough, U.S. officials and researchers are increasingly worried about hacking dangers posed by a slew of other nations including Vietnam, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates. The fears are upending a half decade during which U.S. cybersecurity worries focused on four main adversaries — Russia, China, Iran and North Korea. And they’re signaling that cyberspace is about to get far more complicated and dangerous. “The threshold for entry to have a cyber program has dropped so low because you don’t need to figure out how to build your own program. You can just buy it as a service and that worries me,” a senior FBI cybersecurity official told reporters during a roundtable discussion. In some cases the nations are developing hacking capabilities in-house, such as in Vietnam, where government-backed hackers are reportedly stealing information from rival governments and companies in key sectors including the auto industry to gain a competitive advantage.

Taken to Brink by Trump, Gulf States Are Backpedaling on Iran

Taken to Brink by Trump, Gulf States Are Backpedaling on Iran(Bloomberg) -- An expanded soccer tournament, a direct flight, clandestine meetings and a pledge to release prisoners of war; diplomacy is breaking out as Gulf Arab nations back away from a Donald Trump-inspired confrontation with Iran. And the signs are everywhere.Last week, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain played their first games of the 2019 Arabian Gulf Cup in Qatar after a last-minute decision to take part -- an apparent breakthrough in a 30-month feud that saw them halt trade and flights over Qatar’s links with Iran and support for Islamist groups.Meanwhile, the Saudi-led coalition that’s fought Iranian-backed Houthi rebels in Yemen since 2015 began releasing jailed Houthis, as efforts to end the conflict gather momentum. Oman is quietly hosting high-level meetings, according to people familiar with the matter, and even Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has hinted at direct channels with the U.A.E.Spooked by the prospect of a catastrophic war with Iran and its proxy militias across the region, Gulf monarchies are in the midst of a strategic rethink. The U.A.E., whose economic model relies in large part on its international links, quickly realized it had most to lose from a military escalation. It had removed most of its troops from Yemen by the end of a turbulent summer that saw oil tankers targeted and a U.S. drone downed in the Gulf without significant American response.While the humanitarian catastrophe unleashed by the Yemen war trained an unwelcome spotlight on Saudi Arabia, it took a brazen strike on Saudi oil installations -- which knocked out half the country’s crude production -- to ram home the risks and prove that Trump was not about to ride to his allies’ rescue.“The attacks shattered any illusion of this magical U.S. security umbrella,” said David Roberts, an assistant professor at King’s College London who studies the Gulf. “It burst the bubble and showed that Iran had the willingness to both do something astonishing like the attack on Aramco facilities and the capability to carry it out.”Iran denies U.S. and Saudi assertions it carried out the Sept. 14 strikes, pointing to Houthi claims of responsibility. But people familiar with investigations into the attacks say they were almost certainly launched from southwestern Iran -- an explosive escalation in Tehran’s pushback against an economic offensive unleashed by Trump and enthusiastically backed by the Saudis.The Trump administration withdrew last year from the 2015 deal meant to prevent Iran from developing a nuclear bomb, and reimposed sanctions that have crippled its oil exports. But the “maximum pressure” policy is designed to coax Tehran into more concessions not to drag the U.S. into a new Middle East war just as it draws down troops in Syria.Rolling back Shiite Muslim Iran’s power remains a priority for the Sunni Gulf Arab leadership. There’s an increasing recognition, however, that no one stands to gain from a military escalation in the world’s top oil-exporting region.Saudi Arabia’s Center for International Communication didn’t respond to an email seeking comment. The U.A.E. declined to comment. But in a Nov. 10 speech, Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Anwar Gargash said he saw “a path to a deal with Iran that all parties might soon” be ready to embark on if Tehran demonstrated commitment.War to ‘Cold Peace’In search of a breakthrough, Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan, a former cricketer elected with the backing of a powerful army that provides extensive support for the Saudi military, shuttled between Tehran and Riyadh in October. He met Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and Rouhani, as well as Saudi Arabia’s King Salman and Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman, describing talks as “encouraging.”Khan said he traveled at the request of Trump and Saudi Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Adel Al-Jubeir said the diplomacy wasn’t prompted by the kingdom. But deepening unease in the Gulf catalyzed the effort.Turning these overtures into lasting peace between countries that have grown further apart since the 1979 Iranian revolution remains far off.The Gulf states resent Iran’s deep reach into Arab nations. While ongoing protests in Iraq and Lebanon suggest Iran has reached the limit of its regional influence, they are unlikely to reverse political and military advances decades in the making.“Cold peace is possible but we are certainly far from a grand bargain,” said Afshin Molavi, senior fellow at the Foreign Policy Institute at Johns Hopkins. “For that, both Riyadh and Abu Dhabi would have to accept a role for Iran in Arab countries such as Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and Yemen.”As they explore ways forward, Gulf states are moving at different speeds.The U.A.E. broke with the U.S. and Saudi Arabia by not naming Iran as the culprit behind attacks in May and June on oil tankers as they sailed toward the Strait of Hormuz, the world’s foremost oil shipping chokepoint.It sent coast guard officials to Iran for the first time in six years and Rouhani hinted at other meetings with senior U.A.E. officials. “We’re moving toward improved relations,” he said Oct. 14. Saudi Arabia is catching up.Washington built a multilateral naval operation to protect shipping in the Gulf after the attacks and sent more troops to Saudi Arabia. Both actions resulted in a “down tick” in Iranian actions,” U.S. Defense Secretary Mark Esper said Nov. 13. “The Iranians should not mistake our restraint for weakness.”Where the U.S. holds back, however, others are crowding in. Besides his role in saving Bashar al-Assad’s regime, Russian President Vladimir Putin has forged a partnership with Iran, created an oil alliance with Saudi Arabia and built ties with Egypt’s Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi, who was warned by the U.S. last month against plans to purchase Russian jets.Putin traveled to Saudi Arabia and the U.A.E. in October after visits by the Saudi king and the U.A.E.’s de-facto leader Mohammad bin Zayed to Moscow. The two Gulf countries and Russia have signed deals valued at billions of dollars.For Iran’s Rouhani, the case for regional engagement is obvious.“Don’t you know that Iran is going to stay here and we will remain neighbors throughout history?” he has said, referring to Iran’s Arab neighbors. “Trump will only be around for a few years and will go back to whatever it was he was doing.”\--With assistance from Golnar Motevalli and Glen Carey.To contact the reporter on this story: Zainab Fattah in Dubai at zfattah@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Lin Noueihed at lnoueihed@bloomberg.net, Mark WilliamsFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

China: FIFA Broke Own Rules for Club World Cup

 Cache

(New York) – FIFA’s surprise selection of China to host the 2021 Club World Cup disregarded its own human rights commitments in the bidding process, Human Rights Watch said today, releasing correspondence with the global football governing body.
 
In March 2019, FIFA abolished the Confederations Cup and used the available slot in the calendar to create a new 24-team FIFA Club World Cup. Eight months later, on October 24,  the FIFA president, Gianni Infantino, announced in Shanghai that FIFA had chosen China to be the host of the inaugural 2021 Club World Cup. Contrary to FIFA statutes and policies, there was no public bidding process, no stakeholder consultations, and no human rights risk assessment. 
 
“FIFA flouted its own human rights commitments by granting hosting rights to China for the Club World Cup,” said Minky Worden, global initiatives director at Human Rights Watch. “FIFA is sending the message that the rules that apply to other governments don’t apply to Beijing.”
 
FIFA’s correspondence with Human Rights Watch refers to “internationally recognized human rights standards” that apply to China – but FIFA has not made these hosting arrangements or any agreement with Beijing public.
 
As human rights groups and the media have documented, the Chinese government is committing serious human rights violations, including labor abuses, mass arbitrary detention, mass surveillance, torture, severe restrictions on journalists, and mistreatment of more than one million Uighurs and other Muslim ethnic minorities in “political education” camps in Xinjiang. Such abuses will directly affect groups participating in the FIFA Club World Cup, including athletes and fans from around the world, workers building venues, and journalists, among others. China has no domestic media or internet freedoms, core requirements for FIFA event hosts.

In an October 29 letter to FIFA, Human Rights Watch asked the global football governing body to explain its decision to grant a flagship tournament to China’s state-run federation without stakeholder consultation or assessing the obvious human rights risks, steps set out in the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (the “Guiding Principles”), which FIFA has endorsed and which are enshrined in FIFA policy.

FIFA’s Human Rights Policy, adopted in 2017, outlines the global football authority’s responsibility to identify and address adverse human rights impacts of its operations, including taking adequate measures to prevent and mitigate human rights abuses. Article 7 of FIFA’s Human Rights Policy states that “FIFA will constructively engage with relevant authorities and other stakeholders and make every effort to uphold its international human rights responsibilities.” This should include working with its independent Human Rights Advisory Board and consulting a wide range of stakeholders, including potentially affected groups and individuals and their legitimate representatives, before making major hosting decisions. In the foreword to FIFA’s “reformed bidding process,” Infantino writes: “It is FIFA’s responsibility towards the world of football to conduct these bidding and selection procedures in an ethical, transparent, objective and unbiased way.”

Questioned in Shanghai in October about the Club World Cup bidding process and independent human rights review, Infantino replied: “The mission of FIFA is to organize football and to develop football all over the world,” sidestepping a direct question about why it had ignored its own policies. 

FIFA’s November 7 letter in response to Human Rights Watch does not dispute that it should have consulted stakeholders in advance in keeping with its “far-reaching human rights requirements in the bidding and hosting of FIFA tournaments,” but asserts that the Club World Cup in China is a “pilot edition” on a “shorter timeline.” 

“Timing doesn’t overcome FIFA’s responsibilities to address human rights requirements in China and other host countries,” Worden said. “The shorter timeline actually makes assessing human rights risks even more important.”

Human rights issues have previously been addressed on tight timelines, Human Rights Watch said. In May, FIFA consulted human rights groups about whether to expand the 2022 World Cup to Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, and other Gulf countries. In 2018, FIFA required Canada, Mexico, Morocco, and the United States to conduct independent human rights risk assessments, stakeholder consultations, and to present a Human Rights Strategy in order to bid. 

Football players from China are not exempt from Beijing’s crackdown on basic rights and freedoms. In 2018, Xinjiang authorities detained a teenage Uyghur professional footballer, Erfan Hezim, also known as Ye Erfan, a member of China’s national youth football team. Deemed “one of China’s most promising young footballers,” Erfan was placed in a “political education” camp in Xinjiang for supposedly visiting foreign countries to train and play football matches. He was released in 2019, but FIFA never commented on his case. In early 2019, an aspiring professional footballer, Erpat Ablekrem, was also detained in a camp in Xinjiang after he maintained contact with family members who had fled the country. Erpat remains in custody.   

The awarding of hosting rights comes with a written agreement between FIFA and the host country. But the terms of FIFA’s Club World Cup hosting arrangements with China have not been made public. Transparency is a key part of the UN Guiding Principles. The International Olympic Committee has made its host city contracts public since 2014.

“If there’s to be any integrity in what remains of this process, FIFA needs to immediately make public its hosting arrangements and any agreement with China, put human rights front and center, and then make sure protections are fully carried out,” Worden said.

Alternate Minister of Foreign Affairs Miltiadis Varvitsiotis’ speech at the 8th Arab-Hellenic Economic Forum (Athens, 28 November 2019)

 Cache   
Alternate Minister of Foreign Affairs Miltiadis Varvitsiotis represented the Prime Minister at the 8th Arab-Hellenic Economic Forum, which took place on Wednesday, 28 November 2019. Referring to the Arab-Hellenic Chamber of Commerce, which turns 40 this year, Mr. Varvitsiotis stressed that “it remains a milestone in Arab-Greek cooperation” that has significant mutual benefits for all business sectors. In this context, he said, we are super-charging economic cooperation with the Arab world, emphasising the favourable environment the new government’s policy is creating to attract investments. Moreover, he stated, the Arab world is not only fertile ground for business opportunities, but also a space of major geo-economic cooperation for Greece. Among other things, Mr. Varvitsiotis announced a new form of visa – the Business Visa – that will enable businesses to invite collaborators, partners, suppliers or importers of products to Greece, while also taking responsibility for the hosting, housing and departure of Business-Visa holders. “We are the second country in the European Union, after Italy, to establish such a visa, with the aim of facilitating these cases,” he added. Additionally, our country wants to capitalise on the historically close and privileged ties it maintains with the Arab world in order to contribute to “shaping a two-way relationship between Europe and the Arab world. A relationship that respects the values, traditions and unique characteristics of each side, contributing towards a future of cooperation and understanding”. Mr. Varvitsiotis also referred to the challenges in the Southeastern Mediterranean, where Greece has proven itself to be a pillar of stability, security and development, dealing responsibly and calmly with escalating provocations. It continues to act in accordance with International Law and the Law of the Sea, unlike its restless neighbour, whose actions are disruptive in the region, he underscored. In the same context, and jointly with Cyprus, Greece has developed trilateral cooperation mechanisms with partners in the Eastern Mediterranean, such as Egypt, Lebanon, Jordan, Palestine and, recently, the United Arab Emirates. He called these cooperation mechanisms very successful, as they are an innovative way to systematically promote political and economic cooperation throughout the region.Finally, Mr. Varvitsiotis thanked Qatar for its support of the Mati wildfire victims.

Those who can, do

 Cache   

I’ve never really liked the saying “those who can, do; those who can’t, teach.”

Teaching in itself is something that people “do”. And not everyone who wants to teach actually can teach. When we encounter someone who’s a great teacher, we know it right away. And it’s a thing of beauty to behold.

Whether I like the saying or not, it sure came to mind when I read about University of Miami professor Bruce Bagley, an export on crime in the Latin America. Turns out, he was putting what he’d learned into action:

…laundering at least $3 million in dirty Venezuelan money through his own U.S. bank accounts and keeping about $300,000 as a fee for himself. (Source: Miami Herald)

Both doing and teaching, as it were.

In a story that sounds straight out of a Carl Hiaasen (who specializes in crime novels set in Florida, and populated with all sorts of eccentric characters and wild situations), Bagley set up bank accounts for South American no-gooders.

State records show he had operated “Bagley Consultants,” along with his wife, Annette Bagley.

According to a federal indictment, Bagley in November 2016 opened up an account at a bank in Weston in the company name. State corporate records show the company was dissolved some time in the following year.

But the account remained open, going little used until about November 2017, when he began receiving monthly deposits of “hundreds of thousands of dollars from bank accounts located in Switzerland and the United Arab Emirates,” according to the indictment.

The deposits came from two companies not named in the indictment…Their accounts were controlled by someone described in court papers only as a “Colombian individual.”

Swiss banks? UAE? “Colombian individual.” Nothing to see here. Move along, folks.

According to the feds, once the deposits were made, Bagley would get a cashier’s check for 90%, made payable to an unnamed person.

The individual and the professor discussed they were moving the money on behalf of the Colombian and that “the funds represented the proceeds from foreign bribery and embezzlement stolen from the Venezuelan people.”

Bagley, as it turns out, had written the book on the topic of bad actors: Drug Trafficking, Organized Crime, and Violence in the Americas Today. Guess he just couldn’t resist turning what he’d written into action. Guess he didn’t read (or write) the fine print.

Bagley is facing some serious time. He’s 73, so 20 years x 2 (or even x 1) would effectively be life in the stir.

The University has placed him on administrative leave.

And presumably, his life as an expert – commenting in top tier papers like the New York Times and Washington Post, acting as an expert witness – has come to a screeching halt.

As an expert witness, he hasn’t always appeared on the side of the angels:

In October, Bagley took the stand as an expert witness for the defense at a major drug-trafficking trial in Miami federal court. The trial featured a Colombian syndicate accused of conspiring to ship 20 tons of cocaine into the United States.

Teaching, Punditing. Experting. Conferencing.

And he threw this all over for a piddling $300K?

Maybe he was looking at his 401K and found he needed to sock away a bit more to ensure a more comfortable retirement for himself and Annette. Maybe he’s just greedy. Maybe the money was just too easy. Maybe writing about all that illegal money flowing to the bad guys was so frustrating, he felt the overwhelming need to wet his beak. As they say in wise-guy speak. 

The feds have had their eye on him for a while now – maybe they read the book – and last February caught him in a sting, sending nearly a quarter of a mil to his accounts, and telling him:

…the money came from corrupt sources in Venezuela, and watch[in]g as he happily accepted the cash. (Source: Miami New Times)

Bagley’s lawyers’ fees will likely exceed whatever he made through his money laundering. (Of course, he could have been doing this for years and have a lot more squirreled away that the feds haven’t found. Yet.)

Bet he’s wishing that he’d stuck to teaching instead of doing.

Meanwhile, there’s another bizarre rogue professor story making the rounds. This one is about a couple of chemists at a university in Arkansas who’ve been nabbed for running an on-campus meth lab.

Straight out of Breaking Bad.

Life imitating art.

Bet those fellows wish they’d stuck to teaching, too.

QU’s SESRI conducts survey to gauge views on the 24th Arabian Gulf Cup

 Cache   

During November 19-22, 2019, the Social and Economic Survey Research Institute (SESRI) at Qatar University (QU) surveyed nationally representative samples of Qatari citizens (n = 695) and white-collar residents (n = 721) on the upcoming 24th Arabian Gulf Cup. Responses to a short telephone survey revealed that both Qataris and white-collar expatriates are quite aware of the forthcoming Gulf Cup and are positive about its potential impacts.

The vast majority of Qatar’s citizens and white-collar residents are aware of the participation of Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates in the 24th Arabian Gulf Cup to be held in Doha, Qatar.
Overall, the vast majority of Qatari nationals (92%) and white-collar expatriates (84%) reported being aware of the upcoming 24th Arabian Gulf Cup, which is being held in Doha, Qatar from November 26 to December 8, 2019. Moreover, 95% of Qatari nationals and 87% of white-collar expatriates are aware of the participation of Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in the games.

Qatari nationals (82%) and white-collar resident expatriates (94%) in large numbers said that they welcome the participation of Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, and the UAE in the 2019 Arabian Gulf Cup.

With regard to whether football fans from Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, and the UAE should be permitted to fly directly to Doha to attend these games, the results differ between Qatari nationals and expatriates. About one quarter (24%) of Qatari nationals think the fans should come directly to Doha, whereas nearly two-thirds (63%) want them to come to Doha indirectly via Kuwait or Oman. By contrast, among white-collar expatriates,a majority (58%) feel that the fans should travel directly to Doha and 25% indirectly through Kuwait or Oman. The remainder of both groups responded that they did not know.


The majority of white-collar expatriates and about half of Qataris think that the participation of Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, and the UAE in the 24th Arabian Gulf Cup in Doha is likely to lead to the end of the blockade of Qatar.

Nevertheless, the survey indicates that Qatari nationals and white-collar residents hope that the games will lead to an end of the blockade of Qatar. About half (48%) of Qatari nationals and slightly more than three-quarters (76%) of white-collar expatriates think the participation of Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, and the UAE is either very likely (12% of Qataris) or somewhat likely (36% of Qataris) to lead to the end of the blockade. These percentages are significantly higher among white-collar expatriates (at 34% and 42%, respectively). The remainder of both groups were neutral or said they did not know.

In terms of public awareness of the games, the Internet, social media, and the television were most commonly cited by Qataris and expats as their initial source of news about the Gulf Cup.

A total of 1,416 Qatari nationals (695) and white-collar expatriates (721) completed the survey, yielding a response rate of 48.6 percent and a maximum sampling error for a percentage at the 95% confidence level of +/- 3.02 percentage points. The calculation of this sampling error takes into account design effects. The final dataset was weighted to adjust for probability of selection and non-response. SESRI thanks everyone who participated to ensure that public opinion would be fairly represented.
