Never say "I'm going to reveal something soon" - just do it already.

I regret that President Reagan didn’t FIRE George HW Bush in 1984 when he had the chance.

Put Janet Reno and Elinor Clift on that list too.

Reno made a threat against Hillary, IIRC it was on the 5th anniversary of Waco in 1998. It had to do with the knowledge the Davidians had a suicide pact, which meant when Hillary ordered the final raid she knew the Davidians intended to set the building on fire.

Clift became a nervous wreck almost to the point of non- functional right after V Foster ended up buzzard bait, and she pretty much stayed that way as long as the Clinton’s were in the WH.

Bob Woodward is known to hang out on this site so that’s probable an accident waiting to happen too.

Hazel O’Learly, Clinton’s Energy Sec., put together the Oil for Food Program with Marc Rich, so there is another candidate for a dirt nap.

Be interesting to keep a running tab of Clintonite that end up dead.

“Thieves” looted the offices of Snowden’s lawyers, but took only computers, not silver bars and gold coins that were in plain view.

You do have a history of claiming that Freepers who disagree with you are O-bots, Hussein-heads and infiltrators.

Give it a rest and debate the subject of threads without such name-calling.

Cameras Catch break in at Whistleblower’s law firm
Foreign Policy Magazine ^ | July 7,2013 | John Hudson
http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3040114/posts

Posted on Sunday, July 07, 2013 7:02:23 PM by penelopesire

The offices of a Dallas law firm representing a high-profile State Department whistleblower were broken into last weekend. Burglars stole three computers and broke into the firm’s file cabinets. But silver bars, video equipment and other valuables were left untouched, according to local Fox affiliate KDFW, which aired security camera footage of the suspected burglars entering and leaving the offices around the time of the incident. The firm Schulman & Mathias represents Aurelia Fedenisn, a former investigator at the State Department’s Office of the Inspector General. In recent weeks, she raised a slew of explosive allegations against the department and its contractors ranging from illicit drug use, soliciting sexual favors from minors and prostitutes and sexual harassment. “It’s a crazy, strange and suspicious situation,” attorney Cary Schulman told The Cable. “It’s clear to me that it was somebody looking for information and not money. My most high-profile case right now is the Aurelia Fedenisn case, and I can’t think of any other case where someone would go to these great lengths to get our information.” According to the KDFW report, the firm was the only suite burglarized in the high-rise office building and an unlocked office adjacent was left untouched. The State Department, which has repeatedly disputed Fedenisn’s allegations, denied any involvement in the incident. “Any allegation that the Department of State authorized someone to break into Mr. Schulman’s law firm is false and baseless,” spokeswoman Jen Psaki said.

Many thanks for the ping.

The lawyers offices that were burgled were in dallas; they were representing a lady whistleblower from the state dept, a Mrs. Fedenisn.

The killing of Breitbart, the method and triggerman, is quite well documented - here on FR. People just don’t pay attention.

Known by whom, and by what evidence? That's the first time I've seen this suggested...though I wouldn't doubt it.

<< Anybody who has information that volatile and has not made provisions for it upon death is a total fool. >>

How can we be sure he DIDN’T make provisions? Assuming he was being closely monitored by FBI/NSA before he died, he could have underestimated their ability to know exactly what his backup plans were. If i were in the business of killing people for Presidents and other high-ranking politicians, i wouldn’t do it until i could be absolutely sure the victim’s backup plan had been neutralized first (or simultaneously). Hey, I’ve watched Jack Baeur AND done the Holiday Inn Express!

More likely, assuming he was murdered, he probably didn’t realize yet how volatile his new investigate story was. Do we know what he was working on? I read somewhere it was Benghazi.

It was, of course, not a diesel. The Mercedes C-class is not available with a diesel in the USA. It was an entry-level C250 Coupe with a 1.8 liter, 200 h.p. gasoline engine, around $40K.

And can't be stopped by turning the key?

From the link in 92:

... the team was also able to "lock and unlock the doors; jam the door locks by continually activating the lock relay; pop the trunk; adjust interior and exterior lighting levels; honk the horn (indefinitely and at varying frequencies); disable and enable the window relays; disable and enable the windshield wipers; continuously shoot windshield fluid; and disable the key lock relay to lock the key in the ignition." Even the Electronic Brake Control Module was no match for the onslaught, with both individual and sets of brakes locked up at a whim. Equally worrying, the researchers were also able to completely disengage the brakes "even with car’s wheels spinning at 40 MPH while on jack stands" in the lab and then out on the test track (a de-commissioned airport runway) "forcibly activate the brakes, lurching the driver forward and causing the car to stop suddenly."
Not sure exactly what that means. Actually locked into the start position or just locked into the console so you can't remove the key after turning it off?
