Long-time presenter Jim Clancy leaves CNN after ‘anti-Israel’ Twitter rant. Published time: January 18, 2015 21:10 CNN International correspondent Jim Clancy (Still from YouTube video) Veteran US TV journalist Jim Clancy has abruptly left the international news broadcaster after 34 years, following a seemingly tangential Twitter argument over Charlie Hebdo that escalated to a verbal war between Clancy and pro-Israel social media users.

“Jim Clancy is no longer with CNN. We thank him for more than three decades of distinguished service, and wish him nothing but the best,” said a terse statement from the Atlanta-headquartered network, which had sent Clancy as a reporter to Beirut, London, and Berlin before making him a senior anchor and contributor. Although neither Clancy nor CNN revealed the reasons for the departure, almost all media outlets connected it with a somewhat incoherent Twitter spat that began in the wake of the fatal attacks on Charlie Hebdo, the satirical French magazine.

The intrusion into the Hollywood studio’s internal networks last month has since caused a trove of sensitive files, including stolen company emails, records and unreleased films, to surface on the web.

Earlier this week, Sony announced that it would be cancelling plans to release “The Interview” next week, a comedy in which North Korea President Kim Jong Un is assassinated, following threats perpetrated by the purported hackers.

Entre 2012 et 2013, l’armée étasunienne est intervenue dans 49 pays africains - Média Alternatif. Les chiffres parlent d’eux-mêmes : 10 exercices militaires, 55 opérations, 481 activités de coopération en matière de sécurité. Pendant des années, l’armée étasunienne a ouvertement insisté sur le fait qu’elle n’intervenait en Afrique que dans une faible mesure. Le personnel et les commandants chargés des affaires publiques de l’armée ont prétendu à plusieurs reprises qu’il s’agissait seulement d’une « présence minimale », et sont même allés jusqu’à affirmer que la présence du personnel militaire était relativement faible. Cependant, ils ont refusé de préciser en quoi consiste cette présence minimale. Par exemple, lors d’une interview, un porte-parole d’AFRICOM (Commandement des États-Unis pour l’Afrique) s’était montré inquiet car si l’on reprenait dans un tableau le nombre de déploiements militaires, cela donnerait une « image défavorable » des forces américaines.
