    Washington Examiner ^ | March 17, 2018 | Daniel Chaitin
    Former FBI Director James Comey shot a message at President Trump after his former deputy Andrew McCabe was fired, warning that "the American people will hear my story very soon," "And they can judge for themselves who is honorable and who is not," he added in a terse tweet. Comey has a book coming out next month and a planned media tour to go along with it.

"When Lugovoi and Kovtun's movements were mapped against the sites of polonium contamination, there was an exact match. The evidence of guilt was strong. In May 2007, the then Director of Public Prosecutions Ken Macdonald announced that Andrei Lugovoi was to be charged with murder and his extradition would be sought from Russia. Kovtun was charged in 2010. ..." Prof Norman Dombey, a physicist who has a deep knowledge of Russian nuclear sites, gave evidence at the public inquiry. Dombey says there is...

  • Powell's halo knocked ajar

    09/02/2006 9:46:54 PM PDT · by STARWISE · 76 replies · 2,676+ views
    On July 14, 2003, a Robert Novak column in The Washington Post outed the CIA-agent wife of vociferous Bush administration critic, Ambassador Joseph C. Wilson. Thus was born the "Plame Affair" which quickly became a morality tale of how an out of control Bush Administration would do anything to justify its war in Iraq. A mere three days later, journalist David Corn, summarized the allegations that would color reporting on the Iraq War for the next three years and eventually lead to the indictment of a top aide to the vice president for lying to a grand jury: ((((THE OLD...

    RUSH: Yesterday after the program for the next issue of the most widely read political newsletter in America, The Limbaugh Letter, I interviewed famed journalist Ed Klein. Ed Klein used to edit the New York Times Magazine. He has written 14 books. The guy has incredible sources. People talk to this guy that don’t talk to other people. The stuff that he publishes and writes is often attacked and criticized as nothing more than tabloid conspiracy stuff, but more often than not there’s a lot to it. And he told me something yesterday. So I’m gonna give you a little...

    Breitbart ^ | 11-6-2017 | Katherine Rodriguez
    Former President George W. Bush went off on his former vice president and defense secretary, stating bluntly that “they did not make one f****** decision.” Bush made the inflammatory remark about his former colleagues in Mark K. Updegrove’s book The Last Republicans: Inside the Extraordinary Relationship Between George H. W. Bush and George W. Bush, which is scheduled to be released November 14. The 43rd president pushed back against critics who claim he did not make major decisions during his presidency, and that former Vice President Dick Cheney and Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld made most of the important decisions in...

    American Spectator ^ | September 15, 2015 | George Neumayr
    For years, the Washington establishment held up Sally Quinn, the wife of the late Washington Post editor Ben Bradlee, as the society doyenne par excellence and a “serious” reporter. The Great and Good would gather at her mansion to bat around the issues of the day. Much talk of a sinister religiosity afoot in the land would ensue. But it turns out that Quinn, when not passing around drinks and appetizers to these self-proclaimed rationalists, was in the back playing with her tarot cards and concocting hexes for her enemies. In her new “spiritual memoir,” Finding Magic, Quinn discloses her...

    Hot Air ^ | November 14, 2012 | Ed Morrissey
    At first the FBI probed the e-mails of Paula Broadwell and CIA Director David Petraeus from a suspicion of cyberstalking and harassment. They then dropped the probe after determining that the biographer of Petraeus had a personal relationship with him, even though they discovered that Broadwell had classified documents on her computer. After the entire probe went public and forced Petraeus to resign, FBI agents suddenly conducted a seizure of materials from Broadwell’s home — which the Washington Post reports comes from a belated curiosity into her possession of those classified documents: The FBI is making a new push to...

    The Metro ^ | August 10, 2017 | Nikki M. Mascali
    In four years, Black Lives Matter went from a hashtag about social injustice to a full-fledged global civil rights movement. Metro spoke with Patrisse Cullors, who cofounded Black Lives Matter with Alicia Garza and Opal Tometi in 2013, about its evolution, fighting racism in the age of Trump, her upcoming memoir and what saying “all lives matter” really means. What is the biggest misconception you find people have about Black Lives Matter? Patrisse Cullors: That we just started a hashtag. That it isn’t a sophisticated set of ideas that would lead to a larger strategy to build out, a powerful...

    Former FBI Director James Comey's been meeting with publishers and editors in New York City about his upcoming memoir and could be looking at a substantial advance, the New York Times reports. At the time he was fired, Keith Urbahn, founder of Javelin (the literary agency now representing Comey) told the Daily Caller : "[I]t depends on the timing and how well crafted the book proposal is, but conceivably Jim Comey could get to an eight-figure advance for his memoir. Getting to that level hinges on the story he has to tell." Since Comey had a front-row seat to...

    Foreign Policy ^ | 1/26/10 | Jeff Stein
    Well, it's official now: John Kiriakou, the former CIA operative who affirmed claims that waterboarding quickly unloosed the tongues of hard-core terrorists, says he didn't know what he was talking about. Kiriakou, a 15-year veteran of the agency's intelligence analysis and operations directorates, electrified the hand-wringing national debate over torture in December 2007 when he told ABC's Brian Ross and Richard Esposito in a much ballyhooed, exclusive interview that senior al Qaeda commando Abu Zubaydah cracked after only one application of the face cloth and water.... Now comes John Kiriakou, again, with a wholly different story. On the next-to-last page...

  • Hillary Clinton’s astonishing post-State access to top secret docs (March 31, 2017 story)

    04/04/2017 7:56:02 PM PDT · by TigerClaws · 56 replies
    Hillary Clinton may have resigned her secretary role at the State Department in 2013 — but her access to top secret and classified information didn’t end then. Under Barack Obama, she was allowed to continue to view highly sensitive intel documents for years — well past her announced run for the presidency in April 2015, according to Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa. Why? Toward what possible end? So she could better write her memoir. File this in the “You’ve Got to Be Kidding Me” folder. And it wasn’t just Clinton who kept the power of top secret access. It was six...

    Hillary Can’t Delete This As Secretary of State, Clinton says she stopped at nothing to get a blind dissident out of China. That’s not what he remembers. By DAVID FEITH March 15, 2015 This book won’t help Hillary Clinton’s campaign for president. Its author, Chen Guangcheng, is the blind Chinese human-rights lawyer who in April 2012 escaped rural house arrest and sought refuge at the U.S. embassy in Beijing. The ensuing diplomatic tussle over his fate was a high drama that Mrs. Clinton touts as an accomplishment of her tenure as secretary of state. It reminded her of the “responsibility...

    Marine Gen. John Allen, a 1976 graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy, served this country admirably for more than 36 years. Now he has announced he wants to retire. The 59 year-old former top officer in Afghanistan cited his wife's "chronic" illness and said he wants to devote more time to helping his beloved Kathy cope with serious health problems, including an undisclosed "auto-immune disorder." We join the vast majority of Americans who pray the general's wife will get better, and thank him for his service to this country. But one would have to be pathetically naive not to realize...

    Men's News Daily ^ | 23 July 2004 | Nicholas Stix
    Republicans are filled with glee, as Democrats fall all over themselves, trying to diminish the fact that Bill Clinton's former national security adviser, Sandy Berger, was caught stuffing classified documents and national secrets down his drawers, in his jacket, in his socks, and in a leather portfolio, in order to steal them from the National Archives, and to later destroy some of them. (Berger returned some documents, but only after he was caught.) Watergate, meet BVDgate. For the past thirty years, many observers have thought it the height of paranoia for Pres. Richard Nixon's men to burglarize the offices of...
