Wikileaks publishes TiSA: A secret trade pact between US, Europe and others for big biz pals. Fresh from offering $100,000 to anyone that leaks the still-secret parts of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), Wikileaks has published large chunks of the related Trade In Services Agreement (TiSA).
TiSA is one of a triumvirate of trade treaties being negotiated across the world, except this one does not include the so-called BRICS countries (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa). It does however includes the US, European Union and 23 other countries (such as Australia, Canada, Israel, Mexico) that together represent more than two-thirds of the world's trade. So it is a huge deal. Trade in Services Agreement. Today, WikiLeaks released the secret draft text for the Trade in Services Agreement (TISA) Financial Services Annex, which covers 50 countries and 68.2%1 of world trade in services.
The US and the EU are the main proponents of the agreement, and the authors of most joint changes, which also covers cross-border data flow. In a significant anti-transparency manoeuvre by the parties, the draft has been classified to keep it secret not just during the negotiations but for five years after the TISA enters into force. Despite the failures in financial regulation evident during the 2007-2008 Global Financial Crisis and calls for improvement of relevant regulatory structures, proponents of TISA aim to further deregulate global financial services markets. The draft Financial Services Annex sets rules which would assist the expansion of financial multi-nationals – mainly headquartered in New York, London, Paris and Frankfurt – into other nations by preventing regulatory barriers.

Exclusive Rudaw Interview with former friend of Baghdadi. By Omar Ali There has been little known about Abu Bakr Baghdadi, the mysterious and reclusive leader of the so-called Islamic State, or ISIS.
But Rudaw has obtained exclusive access to a former friend of Baghdadi. For the first time, a biography of Baghdad emerges through questions answered by the former friend, who spoke to Rudaw on condition of anonymity. Identifying himself as Abu Muhammad, the 40-year-old revealed that he had been living with Baghdadi for some time, and was surprised that his former housemate has emerged as the world’s most dangerous person. Abu Muhammad, who is a civil servant in Baghdad, remembers Baghdadi as a modest and inconspicuous person. According to residents, Baghdadi would preach every Friday in the capital’s Topchi neighborhood.
