Lots of Leaking Going On

At the Fitzgerald investigation. This appears to be leaks from the Rove side (who is allowed to discuss his testimony, regardless of the special prosecutors requests to not to discuss the case for now). After mentioning a CIA operative to a reporter, Bush confidant Karl Rove alerted the president’s No. 2 security adviser about the […]

Agressive Interrogations, Or More Deaths

The level of interrogation required to protect Americans from viscous, well trained terrorists is a tough subject. One which is, thankfully, being monitored and has an established protocol of escalation based on potential risk and ability of the detainees to resist nominal interrogation techniques. Mohamed al-Kahtani was captured along the Afghanistan-Pakistan border in December 2001. […]

Call To Govenors To Secede From The Union

I don’t know how else to explain this strange call for Governor’s to refuse to support their commitments to the DoD? Are these people ready to split this country apart?

Took Back The Memorial

Published by under All General Discussions

I think the recent desperate and callous editorial in the NYTimes, which I happily fisked to the depths it deserved here, may have been the straw that broke the camel’s back. Because now all of sudden, after the NYTimes claimed the Drawing Center would walk and no respectable arts center would come in to fill […]

Plame Game Part Duex

One of my first posts on this subject related my experiences growing up in McLean VA right outside the gates of Langley, and how badly people who worked at the CIA could hide that info from the community at large. Too many tell tales, too many loose lips, etc. I have held this position for […]
