H1 Independent US issues threat to Iraq's $50bn foreign reserves in military deal The US is holding hostage some $50bn (£25bn) of Iraq's money in the Federal Reserve Bank of New York to pressure the Iraqi government into signing an agreement seen by many Iraqis as prolonging the US occupation indefinitely, according to information leaked to The Independent

McClatchy Did Iranian Agents Dupe Pentagon Officials? Defense Department counterintelligence investigators suspected that Iranian exiles who provided dubious intelligence on Iraq and Iran to a small group of Pentagon officials might have "been used as agents of a foreign intelligence service ... to reach into and influence the highest levels of the U.S. government," a Senate Intelligence Committee report said Thursday

New York Times 2 Leaders Ousted From Air Force in Atomic Errors Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates made the decision after an inquiry into the mishandling of nuclear weapons found systemic problems in the Air Force.

Medvedev, in Germany, revisits Russia's tensions with West

Asia Times Iran fumes as Syria nods to Arab world Syria's rapprochement with "moderate" Arab states may be the rebirth of Syrian-Arab relations and a stepping stone for dialogue between Damascus and Washington. Considering Syria's indirect talks with Israel, it is also a step away from Tehran, which is not pleased, fearing a break between Syria and Iran on one front, and Syria and Hezbollah on another. - Sami Moubayed

Obama already mired on Middle East road As coincidence would have it, on the day he clinched the Democratic party's nomination for the United States presidency, Barack Obama was scheduled to deliver a key address at the annual meeting of the powerful Jewish lobby in Washington. His speech on the Middle East, and Iran in particular, will have pleased his influential audience and enhanced his election chances. But it marks a backward step on the road to Obama's promises of change. - Kaveh L Afrasiabi

US sees a friendlier face in Iran
While the George W Bush administration has opposed direct contact with the Iranian executive branch, Tehran bears overwhelming responsibility for the failure to initiate parliamentarian dialogue with United States lawmakers.

ASIA

Asia Times China takes on the US - in space Top Chinese military officials, in an assessment of the global weapons buildup, have accused Washington of fueling an arms race aimed at controlling "the commanding heights". China believes a confrontation in space, most likely with the United States, is inevitable, and is preparing for it. The US, for its part, is already gearing for the possibility of China attacking its space-based communications and surveillance systems. - Alan Boyd

United States Defense Secretary Robert Gates, speaking at a high-level meeting of regional leaders in Singapore, was at pains to stress the US would remain involved in the development of Asia's regional security architecture, at the same time, with China in mind, calling for more openness in military modernization. - Ralph A Cossa

What they have said about Foreign Press Review
"FPR'ın iki "kötü" özelliği var: 1. Alışkanlık yaratıyor, onsuz yapamaz hale geliyorsunuz; 2. Değeri alındığı değil, arada bir de olsa, alınamadığı vakit anlaşılıyor. Bir de sürekli bir kaygıya yol açıyor; 'Ya bir gün kesilir ve onu hiç alamazsam' duygusuyla sürekli yaşamak kolay değil."

Cengiz Çandar


"... fantastic .... an outstanding and unique service, not just for those who follow Turkey closely, but those who follow international trends and ideas. ... selection of material is some of the best anywhere ... coverage of the Turkish press and Turkish issues is truly unsurpassed .... outstanding and intelligent service"
