Risen is the NYT clown who has been trolling the government for top classification national security leaks for more than a decade, then printing stories based on his half-baked analyses of bits and pieces of intel, creating a very dangerous world for the US and Americans.

He is as low as one can get.
Yeah - I met Prince several times while at Al Hillah as the ops chief - knew Danny as well....the news needs to concentrate on the real crimes being committed by this pathetic regime in power at the moment...4 US citizens died - we know that is a fact!
