We are unaware of the validity of claims that Christine Amanpour was once a man. We are looking into it.

They were probably curious about the real reason she has such a prominent adam's apple.

No doubt, she was in contact with those being monitored by the NSA so that she could keep up with the latest terrorist talking points on CNN.

My family doesn't watch television--ever. But we got trapped in an airport listening to this woman rant and rave about the Catholic Church on the day John Paul II died. If she isn't a representative the forces trying to bring down Western civilization, she certainly plays one on TV.

Ole "Man Hands" Amanpour? Jamie Rubin still working for (against) the US government?

The Amanpour/Rubin alliance (marriage) always gave me the heebie-jeebies.

In other news, Publius6961 has announced that he has no firm evidence that the Federal Government has been listening in on his telephone conversations. He also denied speculation that government eavesdroppers have fallen asleep from boredom while monitoring his phone calls and checking his book orders from Amazon.com.

Being simply an ordinary citizen, and not having spoken with terrorists on the phone in the past, it is a lot more outrageous that his civil rights have been trampled on so thoughlessly.

Certainly it's a lot more serious than tapping the phones of Amanpour and Dan Rather...

If the NSA wasn't monitoring her calls to suspected terrorists or their handlers, they wouldn't be doing their job and I would be very disappointed in them.

Forget Amanpour...Focus on Andrea. WHy did she ask the question? A tip? Or maybe she just ASSUMED and asked her question based on nothing more.

If Christiane Amanpour was aware of the eavesdropping, the persons doing the eavesdropping weren't properly doing their jobs. If she was speaking by satellite phone from Iraq, there's no question in my mind that her calls were being monitored - or that they should have been.

According to Wikipedia, although she was born in London, the Amanpour family lived in Iran, not Lebanon. They fled back to London when the Shah was overthrown in the Islamic revolution. She attended Catholic schools in London. Her name has Christ in it. I doubt she's a Muslim.

It's been all over the net. Andrea Mitchell asked Risen outright about warrantless wiretapping of Amanpour. The Q&A was on NBC's website - NBC took it down with an interesting explanation.

I say "so what?" Tap 'em all. Reporters are more likely to get tips from bad guys, since bad guys like publicity. Tap the radio and print folks too.

Could have been coordinated between Amanpour and Mitchell ahead of time too - to "create a tangible embodiment" of the issue.

Of course she's a mooslime, why else would she wear the headgear?

Let her be paranoid and worry about having her conversations listened to. The fact that no bench warrants were signed shows otherwize, but it makes her feel more important if she thinks they are listening. If they were, and she did say things that needed closer monitoring, they would have got a warrant so it would be admissable in court

So, her statement is a lie. She DOES KNOW that they weren't listening to her conversations. She's just hamming it up for the media and all the tin-hatters out there.

I've started complaining to airports about using CNN solely or exclusively on their TVs in the terminals. Next comes the airlines. Why should I have to sit through all that c.r.a.p.?
