By Steve Holland and Roberta Rampton WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump took an aggressive posture toward Iran on Wednesday for test-firing a ballistic missile, with his national security adviser declaring "we are officially putting Iran on notice" for what he called a provocation. The warning from Michael Flynn marked an abrupt change in policy and tone toward Iran from that of Trump's predecessor, Democrat Barack Obama, who had negotiated a 2015 nuclear deal with Tehran.
In first public media appearance since taking office, Michael Flyyn says ‘Iran is feeling emboldened’ as a result of the nuclear deal it signed with world powers in 2015.
Leaders at the US military's Central Command did not falsify intelligence relating to the fight against the Islamic State group in Iraq and Syria, a Pentagon report said Wednesday. Intelligence analysts in 2015 had complained that senior military officials altered assessments so as to downplay the strength of IS, and an interim congressional report released last year found frequent attempts to distort or suppress intel. "Only a few witnesses described intelligence assessments as false, and they did not provide specific examples that supported the allegation," the report states.
