Skip to comments.Spooky Taliban at Yale
Posted on 04/03/2006 8:17:35 PM PDT by bessay
Having tired of yelling at my television, I have set down to write the painfully obvious: Sayed Rahmatullah Hashimi, the Ivy League Mullah, is a CIA asset. His admittance to the country and his acceptance to Yale are merely payback for services rendered.
Mike Hoover, Hashimis sponsor, was one of only a handful of journalists allowed into Afghanistan by the CIA in the eighties to observe the war against Russia.
Bob Schuster, Hoovers attorney friend, was a 1967 graduate of Yale and apparently had the connections to obtain a slot for Hashimi at the Ivy League school. Although I cannot find a single mention of it except on Schusters own web site: www.bobschuster.com, Schuster is much more than just a friend to Hoover. He was Hoovers personal injury attorney when he sued Bell Helicopter for the crash that killed his wife. There was a very large settlement.
Somehow Chip Brown of The New York Times Magazine also neglected to mention that Schuster is a lifelong Democrat activist who ran for Dick Cheneys old congressional seat in 1994 and narrowly lost. He was a member of the Democratic National Committee, and served on the Executive Committee of the Wyoming State Democrat Party.
Schusters connections to power run deep. He graduated from Yale the year after John Kerry and the year before George W. Bush. Bush and Kerry were unable to get deferments at the time and had to join their respective services. Schuster, on the other hand, makes no mention of having served. He apparently had no problem in getting his deferment and going on to law school in Wyoming and graduating in 1971 only to be honored as a Ford Urban Law Fellow by the Ford Foundation. He went from there to Harvard for his Masters Degree as a Ford fellow. McGeorge Bundy was the president of the Ford Foundation at the time.
In case you forget who McGeorge Bundy was, this is Yahoos entry for him:
191996, U.S. educator and government official, b. Boston. An Army intelligence officer during World War II, he was on the Harvard faculty 194961, becoming the youngest dean of the faculty of arts and sciences in 1953. As the special assistant to Presidents Kennedy and Lyndon Johnson for national security affairs (196166), Bundy supervised the staff of the National Security Council and played a major role in making foreign policy. He supported the 1961 Bay of Pigs Invasion, helped determine strategy during the 1962 Cuban missile crisis, and strongly advocated increasing U.S. military involvement in Vietnam. He resigned from government to serve as president of the Ford Foundation (196679). Bundy was the author of The Strength of Government (1968) and Danger and Survival (1988).
I doubt the CIA can be fully trusted.
Let me get this straight. Hakim's sponser was a journalist who knew a guy that was big in Democratic politics.
If this is news, this country is way too politically polarized.
Why would the department of homeland security let this guy in the country. He originally came in 2001 when the UN had placed the Taliban leadership under sanctions.
Hmmm ~ maybe not a CIA asset ~ possibly a narcotrafficante asset ~ anyone thinking of Mena?
Flaw in reasoning...
He expects the school to agree to ASSIST the government!!!
NO WAY would an Ivy League school wish to do ANYTHING to help the USA!
Actually, I think "Baghdad Bob" was one of ours, and the bombastic proclamations were coded messages. He was barely debriefed and now lives quietly with his family in Qatar.
"Why would the department of homeland security let this guy in the country"
He's an excellent source of information on people and the innerworkings of the Taliban.
On the other hand, if one really can't get over themselves and is frustrated that somebody like a former Taliban spokesman is allowed to matriculate at Yale, then publicly demonize the kid so his former Taliban associates decide to create their own frat party for the Rat with that ever so special Taliban -cultural flavor.
If he was a CIA asset he should have been planted in Afghanistan after his services were no longer needed.There's no way in hell that this filthy pig should take the place of a student who deserves to be there.
Why not plant a CIA asset in Yale? Certainly we need someone in there watching those people.
