Turned on the radio, happened to catch the last segment of the John Batchelor show. He was interviewing Jeb Babbin....who many of us know and respect, and read his columns. I was absolutely stunned by what Babbin just said...hadn't seen/heard it anywheres..and thought it merits reposting for your benefit....
make him spend some of that money
This is the kind of stuff that eventually has people effictively remove their consent from those empowered to govern.
Monday...I'll do a live thread..
Rich Rocky needs to be down in his West VA working
on the mine problems instead of undercutting Bush on
No one's above the law. Rockefeller should pay the same price anyone else would pay. If he did the crime, he can do the time...
Is this written in the rules??
Because at the hearing yesterday .. After a few stern words to the Dems with regard to their questions ... Pat Roberts mention the FBI asking members (I think last year) to take one and that Roberts thought it was an insult
I thought it was odd that he brought that up
"Intelligence tests? Fertility tests? What are you looking for?"
Wasserman test - it would explain the insanity, at least...
He really needs to get the hell out of politics.
Types of security clearances:
The scope of investigative work needed to grant a security clearance depends on the level of clearance being requested. There are three basic levels of security classification:
This refers to material, which, if improperly disclosed, could be reasonably expected to cause some measurable damage to the national security. The vast majority of military personnel are given this very basic level of clearance. This level needs to be reinvestigated every fifteen years.*
The unauthorized disclosure of secret information could be expected to cause serious damage to the national security. This level is reinvestigated every ten years.*
Individuals with this clearance have access to information or material that could be expected to cause exceptionally grave damage to the national security if it was released without authorization. This level needs to be reinvestigated every five years.*
* Reinvestigations are more important than the original investigation because those individuals who have held clearances longer are more likely to be working with increasingly critical information.
I heard tonight that the committee told Gonzalez to plan on being there all day on Monday.
I'll have to check the Bush Manual of New Tone but I'm pretty sure Rockefeller could endorse assassination and the President would find a reason to overlook it. "Folks get upset. I appreciate that."
Are polygraph (lie detector) tests required?
The use of the polygraph for any Department of Defense program is governed by DoD Directive 5210.48 and DoD Regulation 5320.48R.
A polygraph examination is mandatory for employment by or assignment to the DSS and the National Security Agency (NSA) and for assignment (or loan) of DoD personnel to the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA ). It is also mandatory for some SCI and SAP access programs.
Additionally, the polygraph may be used for any other personnel security investigations to resolve serious credible derogatory information and then only with consent. No adverse action may be taken solely on the basis of a polygraph examination that indicates deception, except upon the written finding by the Secretary or Under Secretary of Defense, or a Secretary of one of the military departments, that the classified information in question is of such extreme sensitivity that access under the circumstances poses an unacceptable risk to the national security.
Polygraph examinations may also be used to supplement investigations of federal felonies, of unauthorized disclosure of classified information or of alleged acts of terrorism, or when requested by the subject of a personnel security investigation, for exculpation with respect to allegations arising in the investigation.
The DoD regulation details the exact manner in which the examination must be conducted. No relevant question may be asked during the polygraph examination that has not been reviewed with the person to be examined before the examination, and all questions must have a special relevance to the inquiry. Certain "validating" questions may be asked without prior disclosure to establish a baseline from which the examiners can judge the validity of the answers to the relevant questions. The probing of a person's thoughts or beliefs, or questions on subjects that are not directly relevant to the investigation, such as religious or political beliefs or beliefs and opinions about racial matters, are prohibited.
Monday. Hmmmmmm. I guess I'll change my Monday plans to Tuesday.
He really needs to get the hell out of politics.
and that too.
He is such a smug SOB
Thanks for confirming..weren't you stunned also..? I was blown away..<>
...I caught AGAG on Brit's today, and he looked like the proverbial cat that swallowed the canary...very confident..and as I said..Babbin , IMHO would not be going public with this unless encouraged to do so...there's more afoot here..I expect..happily..
Did you ever notice that Rockefeller always looks guilty or like he is hiding something? I am serious, his demeanor and body language make him look like a Dog that peed on the carpet. Leahy has the same problem, he always looks guilty,but he probably did pee on the Carpet.
LOL -- and arrogant as well.
