FOREIGN MINISTER AL-JUBEIR: I believe that – I – I believe that no two countries are working as closely in fighting terrorism, and in particular ISIS, as the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the United States. This has been the case for a number of years. We are intensifying our efforts. The conference that the Secretary hosted in Washington yesterday was a huge success and reinforced the determination of the civilized world to take on this evil and to defeat it, God willing.

BUSAN, Republic of Korea. The Ohio-class guided-missile submarine USS Michigan (SSGN 727) passes silhouettes of the rain obscured Oryuk Islets, in background, as she arrives in Busan for a routine port visit. Oryuk translates to "five of six" because the height of the tide determines how the rocks are separated at the waters surface.

The Black Chamber, also known as The Cipher Bureau, was the United States' first peacetime cryptanalytic organization, and a forerunner of the National Security Agency.

Headed by Herbert O. Yardley (1889–1958), the Black Chamber was founded in May 1919 following World War I. Yardley had commanded the Army cryptographic section of Military Intelligence (MI-8) during World War I.

Jointly funded by the Army and the State Department, the Cipher Bureau was disguised as a New York City commercial code company; it actually produced and sold such codes for business use. Its true mission, however, was to break the communications (chiefly diplomatic) of other nations.

Its most notable known success was during the Washington Naval Conference during which it aided American negotiators considerably by providing them with the decrypted traffic of many of the Conference delegations, most notably the Japanese.
