'D.C. madam' names a purported customer [war strategist who coined the term "Shock & Awe"]
CNN ^ | April 12, 2007

Posted on 04/12/2007 5:02:55 PM PDT by jdm

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The alleged "D.C. madam" dropped a name in court documents filed Thursday, but the man named bristled at being accused of hiring the high-end escort service run by Deborah Jean Palfrey.

Government prosecutors say Pamela Martin and Associates was actually a prostitution ring that Palfrey operated in the Washington area for 13 years. Palfrey denies that her business provided sexual services to its customers.

In her motion to reconsider appointment of counsel, Palfrey named Harlan K. Ullman as "one of the regular customers" of the business.

Ullman is one of the leading theorists behind the "shock and awe" military strategy that was associated with the 2003 invasion of Iraq.

"The allegations do not dignify a response," Ullman told CNN. "I'm a private, not a public, citizen. Any further questions are referred to my attorneys."

I don’t think you get in trouble for being named in this kind of thing unless you’re a Republican.

Not much of a “D.C. Madame”

So is anyone surprised that the very first name to get “dropped” here (and immediately reported by CNN) is someone from the Bush camp? Go figure.

I wonder if this is the opening barrage of a RAT shock and awe campaign to slander and out elements of the conservative coalition over the next 18 months until the '08 election?

Wonder if he is married. If so he is probably saying ‘’ awe shocks hunny’’ and then she follows up with shock and awe.

"The allegations do not dignify a response,"

I tried that one with an ex-girlfriend once.

Without much success I should add.....

A woman so low as to reveal this alleged information is not a credible source. She is scum.

Anytime you see a story in the MSM, ask yourself two questions: Who benefits from this story? And why is it coming out NOW?

Any story that has the words "Shock", "Awe", and "sexual" in it deserves a picture of Jennifer Eccleston.

Yes, it may well be. And whether it is or not, there will be such a “shock and awe” campaign by the Rats. Bet your boots.

Yes, it sure looks like him.

There is more to this story than meets the eye.

I highly doubt the story.

Harlan can take care of himself so I am not worried about him.

If she was going to lie I suspect she'd pick someone less obscure to name-drop about.

Someone once asked Errol Flynn why he, of all people, would hire prostitutes. Couldn’t he get enough sex for free from his millions of admiring female fans ? Flynn replied he didn’t pay women for the sex, he paid them to go away.

There will be a carefully orchestrated parade of names up to the election by the MSM carefully designed to protect the Democrats and to pillory the GOP. Any bets?

The Fox news version of this story mentions that he coined the term in 1996. Can someone remind me who was President then? Does sound like this is tied to the Bush administration as tightly as some would wish.
