FBI raids office of D.C. CTO, Obama appointee
Politico ^ | 3-12-09

Federal agents this morning are searching the Judiciary Square office of Washington, D.C.'s Chief Technology Officer.

The search is part of "an ongoing investigation," said a spokeswoman for the FBI's D.C. Field Office, Lindsay Gotwin, said. She declined to comment further.

The outgoing Chief Technology Officer, Vivek Kundra, was appointed last week Chief Information Officer by the Obama administration. His last day at the city government office was February 4, a spokeswoman for D.C. Mayor Adrian Fenty, Leslie Kershaw, said.

Bambi’s entire administration has become a comedy of errors.. I guess that’s what you get for hiring a rank amateur to do a man’s job. I wonder how long it will take for him to get burned out and just quit, after all, he never really held any job that long.

If it’s an outgoing CTO, doesn’t that mean he was part of Bush’s team?

Obama needs to put a major employment ad out to every prison in the country to fill his cabinet.

Why bother any honest people?

Why Vivek Kundra will make a great US CIO

March 10, 2009

Vivek Kundra was born in New Delhi in 1975, migrated with his parents to Tanzania where he lived till he was 11 and then moved to the US.

The 34-year-old was appointed the first ever Federal Chief Information Officer by President Barack Obama last week.

His favourite book is Great Expectations, comfort food is the lowly plum, favourite movie is Sholay and he can speak Swahili.

How cool is that?

***REMINDER ALERT:

Breaking (Bad) News for Ed Profs Ayers and Dohrn

In a sensational letter to be released at a March 12 National Press Club news conference, the San Francisco Police Officers Association (SFPOA) tells Cliff Kincaid of America’s Survival, Inc., and FamilySecurityMatters.org contributing editor, that evidence in the 1970 bombing murder of a San Francisco police officer points to Weather Underground members Bernardine Dohrn and Bill Ayers, two associates of President Barack Obama.

The letter will be made public at a news event that will feature a former FBI informant in the Weather Underground saying that Ayers told him that Dohrn planted the bomb that killed Sergeant Brian V. McDonnell. The informant, Larry Grathwohl, has testified under oath before the U.S. Senate about the bombing plot.

*snip*

*The News Conference will be held at 12:30 p.m. at the National Press Club, 529 14th St., N.W., 13th floor, Washington, D.C. Reservations can be made by contacting griffin@griffnews.com or by calling 703-255-2211.
