In Depth with Mark Bowden
Mark Bowden , Atlantic Monthly
Mr. Bowden's 1999 book Black Hawk Down: A Story of Modern War, the story of the downing of a Black Hawk helicopter in Somalia in 1993, was made into a movie directed by Ridley Scott. Another of his books, Killing Pablo (2001), which covered the life and death of Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar, is currently being adapted for film. (Mr. Bowden is writing the screenplay). Mr. Bowden's latest book, Guests of the Ayatollah: The First Battle in America's War with Militant Islam, is about the 444 day Iran hostage crisis that began in November 1979. Mark Bowden's other books are: Doctor Dealer (1987), Bringing the Heat (1994), Our Finest Day: D-Day, June 6, 1944 (2002) and Finders Keepers (2002).
From the thread:
The most interesting guest to me will be Condi Rice. She is doing a blitz of multiple shows and it is clear she has a message to push. I am very interested in what it is and how hard the drive by media will try to ignore it. Hans Blix is doing a mini-counter blitz (a Blix blitz?) and I'll be interested to learn his (the UN/PLO/Al Qaeda's) talking points as well as the hagiography of Al Gore on ABC. Is he really the great white hope of the moonbats?
The dominant meme appears to be that Bush Derangement Syndrome (BDS) is the only sane way to look at the world, oh, and appeasement is the most successful diplomatic tactic known to mankind (never mind the 100% failure rate)
MTP looks like must-miss tv today; Looking forward to seeing Condi on FNS.
From FReeper Snugs graphics shop, here are last week's winners:
Good morning AB and thanks for the thread. Sure would like a solid Brit smack down today.
G'morning Alas. Interesting line-up this morning.
WHAT? You mean you wouldn't want to partake of the wisdom of Senator Joe Biden? I'm sure Mr. Russert will have many wonderful questions for him! I mean, it's not like Senator Biden appears on the Sunday shows every Sunday......
And Hans Blix, international man of mystery! Grrrrrowl, Baby! Behave!
Good morning! I went to Mass last night so I will be here for most of the morning, unless my husband hijacks the computer. I made him pancakes this morning so maybe he will let me have the computer..LOL.
I'm actually tempted to watch MTP this morning. The lineup of Biden, the Bloviator of the Senate, and Blix, the Mr. Magoo of weapons inspectors, promises some high comedy.
Morning! What's with this Blix blitz?
Good morning as as ever many thanks for putting the thread up
As you can see, I am very cynical about anyone involved with the UN.
Much as I hate ABC and Stuffinguphisnose, it's delicious to learn that his program is surpassing Russet's MTP.
"I mean, it's not like Senator Biden appears on the Sunday shows every Sunday......"
You are so right. I don't think there is a question that Senators Biden, Graham, McCain, Hagel, Schumer etc. haven't been asked and answered on television scores of times. We know everything they think, everything they're for and against, much more than we'd like to or need to know. How's about we try someone like Tom Coburn, Jeff Sessions or Richard Burr (from my state) for a change. I wonder what they think on a number of different issues.
Al Gore, Sunday cartoons are back.
At least two networks have Time Magazine reporters on their panel. Their colleague who "broke" the Haditha soldiers story, was in collution with Taliban. Coincidence?
Haditha Reporter's Thanksgiving With The Taliban -> Sweetness & Light dutifully exposes the Time reporter's true connections. (Worth the Read)
Thanksgiving With the Taliban TIME correspondent Tim McGirk shares bread, raisins, and thoughts about the afterlife with some Taliban fighters, and finds some common ground.
We have become like the old Pravda watchers...you have to figure out what's going on by seeing who is NOT present on the shows and reading subtle signs, much like tea leaves.
