Do we really want terrorist analysts who are severely mentally ill?
Headline reminded me of another headline:
“Incontinent Old Man Wins Miss Teen America Paqeant”
This judge resigned from the FISA court over the warrantless wiretapping fracus. Sounds like a flaming lib.
Obvious fraud. Shim applied as a man, waited for an answer, then told the truth. That’s intentional fraud.
If I were the woman who shim had lunch with and told, I would asked shim to re-apply.
The plaintiff’s behavior is really, really embarrassing. But expertise on terrorism and national security does not know gender. If he/she really knows the stuff, maybe the department should look the other way. If they’re worried about the co-workers being uncomfortable, the tranny can always work from home on a laptop.

Oops, you’re exactly right.
This is the same one? He was reprimanded by the FISA court for making up his own laws.
fake ranger or rump ranger?
we report. you decide.
This is an Army matter, UCMJ applies? I do not understand why a federal, non-military judge has jurisdiction.
I ask a knowledgeable Freeper to explain.
Its not. The person had retired. UCMJ also does not apply to the Library of Congress.
This could be a good thing. Anyone who would voluntarily cut off his own testes should have no qualms about waterboarding...of course, we may need to remind him that waterboarding is for terrorists, not for his personal pleasure.
