Presenter: Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel
May 06, 2014

SECRETARY CHUCK HAGEL: You can laugh. That's what I was -- I was a sergeant, so I don't give many commands. But, first, thank you. I very much appreciate an opportunity to say hello and spend some time out here.

The few hours I've been here to -- it's given me a good understanding of the importance beyond what I'd already appreciated, the importance of this facility and what you do and what you mean to our Navy and what you mean to our defense enterprise and our country.

Suicide bombers - and how to beat them

Imagine seeing a suspected suicide bomb car approaching. What are your options? Signal, shoot, flee? Now there's a new option. A technology is being tested at a secret location in Norway that can make a car's engine cut out using high-intensity jammers.
Better still, it can also take out drones, jet skis, and any other vehicle used to deliver bombs.
And it has also positively tested disrupting remote control-activated bombs -- even chemical and biological ones.
This video shows the device being put through its paces using fast cars, briefcase bombs and drones as it prepares to be unveiled.

Treasury Exposes Iranian Attempts to Evade Oil Sanctions

Action Targets Individuals and Companies Acting on Behalf of the Government of Iran

WASHINGTON – The U.S. Department of the Treasury today identified a network of six individuals and four businesses as subject to sanctions pursuant to Executive Order (E.O.) 13599 for acting for or on behalf of the Government of Iran. These actions are part of the United States Government’s ongoing efforts to prevent sanctions evasion by individuals and companies acting on behalf of the Government of Iran, including efforts to sell Iranian oil in circumvention of the strict limitations that the U.S. and many of its partners have adopted.

In its efforts to evade sanctions, the Government of Iran relies on front companies, financial institutions and businessmen willing to engage in deceptive transactions to conceal the direct involvement of the Iranian Government and its instrumentalities such as the National Iranian Oil Company (NIOC) and the Naftiran Intertrade Company (NICO) Sarl in global oil deals.
