No surprise whatsoever as I have established thes facts many years ago ... the rest is US policy set for self-interest ... rewards friends buying military war arms, sanction our adversaries and the evil empires out there ‼️
The UAE steered U.S. foreign policy in its favor through a series of legal and illegal exploits, according to an unprecedented U.S. intelligence report.
US intelligence document describes UAE efforts to influence American politics - report | The Guardian |
A classified US intelligence report details efforts undertaken by the United Arab Emirates to influence American politics, offering a scrutinizing look at a close US ally, according to the Washington Post.
Written by the National Intelligence Council, the report says that the UAE has for years - across multiple presidential administrations - illegally and legally attempted to shape US policy. The Post cited three anonymous sources who have read the report, which the council has been showing to policymakers in recent weeks.
Those familiar with the report said that it included influencing measures known to national security officials, but also operations that "more closely resemble espionage", the Post said. According to the report, the UAE has spent over $154m on lobbyists since 2016 and millions more on donations to US universities.
The National Intelligence Council, an analytical arm of the US intelligence community, has not publicly responded to the report. The UAE's ambassador to the US, Yousef Al Otaiba, said he was "proud of the UAE's influence and good standing in the US".
"It has been hard earned and well deserved. It is the product of decades of close UAE-US cooperation and effective diplomacy," he said in a statement to the Post. "It reflects common interests and shared values."
See this leak to the media as a stern warning from the White House to the United Arab Emirates not to cozy up to China and Russia .... Joe losing the Middle East. Clown Prince Salman and OOEC+.
