What Fools We Be

Hey, it could be worse ... half an hour ago the MSM was reporting that the job was being given to Al Gore.

pResident Obola Names Ron Klain As EBOLA CZAR

Man with NO MEDICAL KNOWLEDGE AT ALL to head national Ebola effort

(But hey, he stayed in a Best Western last night!)





The United States has no Surgeon General. We have not had a surgeon general in some time. Obama has made two attempts to fill the position, both times with political appointees. IIRC, the first guy was some big cash contributor, and the second guy was some very young doctor who had helped push Obamacare through. One would think that if the position wasn’t a complete sinecure, that being the ultimate doctor in charge during a pandemic would be the reason the post existed. And that having that senior level of gravitas and medical accomplishment would be the primary factors for the position, which ought to transcend politics.

Are you kidding? Obola doesn’t do a think that isn’t political.

So now we have this. Dig the lie in the VERY FIRST SENTENCE.

Obama to name longtime political aide as ‘Ebola czar,’ bypassing senior health official

Responding to growing calls to appoint an “Ebola czar” to lead America’s battle against the deadly virus, sources confirm to Fox News that President Obama plans to name Ron Klain, a longtime political hand with no apparent medical or health care background.

He did, however, serve as chief of staff to Al Gore and later Vice President Biden.

In making the appointment, Obama will effectively bypass another official, Dr. Nicole Lurie, who has served as assistant secretary for preparedness and response (ASPR) at the Department of Health and Human Services since July 2009.

Congress, nearly a decade ago, created that post, which would seem to fit the bill for Ebola coordinator—at least on paper.

Yet, as Obama prepares to name Klain, the senior official currently filling that health job has been virtually absent from the public eye. She’s on the team, the Obama administration insists—just not in the lead.

A spokesman with HHS told Fox News that in addition to roles played by other agencies, “Dr. Lurie and her team in ASPR are dealing primarily with advance development of countermeasures, [Public Health Service] deployment, and hospital outreach.”

In other words, Lurie is part of the cast but by no means a central character.

Who da fug be axin fo da ‘bola za? Ain be me. Ain be you. Ain eben da Dembocrats. Who it be?

At least one lawmaker, though, pinpointed her post as the one that should be in charge of the whole operation.

Sen. Bob Casey, D-Pa., remembered that Congress had created such a point person in 2006 with the Pandemic and All-Hazards Preparedness Act.

When asked in an Oct. 13 interview on MSNBC if he thought the administration needed an Ebola “czar,” Casey said, “I don’t, because under the bill we have such a person in HHS already.”

It may make sense for us to have one person ... so that after this initial surge of activity, we can have a more regular process just to make sure that we’re crossing all the T’s and dotting all the I’s going forward,” Obama said.

...

“He’s strong. He’s very tough,” said CNN Political analyst David Gergen. “It’s important in this job to be a coordinator; you have to knock heads together. He’s tough enough to do that.”

Gergen said that while Klain doesn’t have a health care background, he does have both domestic policy and foreign policy assignments on his portfolio and both will come into play as the administration deals with Ebola.

Klain will report to both White House homeland security adviser Lisa Monaco and National Security Advisor Susan Rice, according to a White House official.

So instead of giving the job to the person who OUGHT to have it, the Surgeon General, because that job isn’t filled ... but it is, mostly. We have an acting SG, Rear Admiral Boris D. Lushniak. So, why not give him the job? Or if he isn’t up to doing the work, then why on earth is he occupying the chair?

Notice also that the new Secretary of Health has NO ROLE HERE. Now that Kathleen Sebelius (hey, remember her??) has vacated the post, it’s been held for 4 months now by Sylvia Burwell. While she is an incumbent, the position is Cabinet Level. She is head of HHS, period. She is the person at the top of the heap, several layers above the Surgeon General. But she isn’t getting this role either. It’s going to some guy. A man. And his “clear lines of communication” on this major health issue don’t go through her, or HHS, AT ALL.  They go through Homeland Security, and the NSA. As if we were dealing with terrorists and spies.

Sounds like they can’t even follow their own protocols.

We are so fucked.

another very short one from me, doesn’t need to be long, speaks for itself

This guy said it way back when, in fewer words then I have and with more impact.

This tells you all you need to know, or it tells you how we got to where we are today. Sure, there are lots of other factors but this one is key.

affair will sour relations between European leaders and the U.S. at every level .

Michele, American Heartland USA,
As an American that did NOT vote for the idiot in office, I can attest that there are more like-minded people opposed to this dictator than not. He wins elections because he hands out goods and services to these dead beat, good-for-nothings in return for a vote. A bunch of lazy, fat “Americans” that have sold their freedoms for free cell phones and medication. It truly disgusts me.

scooter, norwich, United Kingdom. It takes a stretch of the imagination, albeit from the outside looking in, as to just how America’s liberal-left quite comes to terms with Obama’s blatant and arguably illegal disregard of the 4th amendment ….

There’s even one guy who says the USA stole Brits atomic secrets in WW2. Well, if we did, weren’t we clever especially considering the moles and traitors working inside the govt. here.  Yeah, we had em too but not on the same scale I do not think. Anyway ... here.

Tim, Woodbridge,
I for one am not in the least bit surprised the the USA has been eavesdropping on everyone. What would have surprised me would have been if they weren’t, or at least trying to. They have got the technology available with satellites and so forth, haven’t they. TheYanks aren’t gentlemen. This was obvious from the moment at least when we gave them our nuclear secrets during WW2 which helped the building of the atom bomb, but they gave none of theirs In return, which had been the understanding.  There is no special relationship, at least as far as the Yanks are concerned, other than that of a master to a useful servant. Obama hates our guts. Not that Britain has clean hands of course.

So what’s this all about?

There’s a few more but it’s all about this article in a conservative paper. Mostly conservative. And the writer while on the money on lots of things, generally is put off by the USA.  I don’t think he much likes us.

Take a look.

Oh no, the U.S. has dropped us in it again

By Andrew Alexander

America should never be trusted. This is the lesson of the past half century or so. Washington has led us into one morass after another ever since the end of World War II.

The fact we play the stooge’s role doesn’t make it any better, rather worse in fact. Now it turns out that the U.S. has been systematically tapping the phones of its allies’ leaders - with GCHQ Cheltenham playing some inevitably subordinate, if useful, role.

The U.S. is guilty of a grave diplomatic insult. We do not believe what you tell us, says Washington, so we intercept your private conversations. (Why not go through the rubbish bins, too?)

It seems that literally dozens, including most if the European heads of government, have had their innermost thoughts revealed. The reaction in Washington is a mixture of naivety and humbug.

It has long been tapping the phone of German Chancellor Angela Merkel, for example. That would be an offence on German soil, the Berlin government angrily insists. And it probably was done with the use of the U.S. Embassy.

In the middle of this unprecedented row, the U.S. issues an arrest warrant for young Lauri Love, a vicar’s son from Suffolk, for hacking into their government departments’ messages.

The two operations - his and the American government’s - sound interestingly similar. And we already have the case of Gary McKinnon, who Washington tried, unsuccessfully thanks to a Mail campaign, to deport on a charge of hacking into their computers.

The attempt to excuse President Obama because he stopped the phone-tapping when he heard about it months ago won’t wash.

There is no point in gathering information about a foreign leader’s views unless you feed them to your own head of government. Of course he knew about the practice.

His hand was forced only because of the leaks from the documents revealed by Edward Snowden, the whistle-blowing contractor employed by the National Security Agency. This affair will sour relations between European leaders and the U.S. at every level for a long time to come.

Trust, the product of years of effort, is not easily rebuilt, perhaps not in our lifetime.

outrage in Paris and Berlin is tinged by theatrics and hypocrisy.

I found this to be of some interest and thought you might too.

I am not familiar with the writer, but he surely is correct about the hypocrisy exhibited by, our Euro friends. Cough, sputter. Friends?

I have to confess that it never, ever actually dawned on me, that we and Germany and I guess France, would want to read each others mail.
We are, more or less, allies after all.  Shows ya how out of step I got.  Thinking about it now, I suppose all the countries allies or otherwise and especially the ones in the otherwise column, have an interest in knowing what the other guy is up to and what he really thinks.  As opposed to what he says he is up to and what he says he thinks.
Hey, can you imagine the Germans and French snooping around Washington? Wouldn’t you love to know what other countries know and listen in on?
Bet it would all be quite interesting. 
There really are no more secrets. Are there? Hmmm. We’ll have to wait for the next person to steal some sensitive docs. from an intelligence agency. And most likely one of ours.  Like ... When was the last time you heard of a theft on the scale of faggots Manning & Greenwald and Snowden. Who isn’t one of those but it doesn’t make me feel any better.  When was the last time this happened and instead of an American traitor, it was a Frenchman or a German or an Italian?  I don’t recall anyone from one of those countries selling the family silver.


Spying is expected, but this will distract from real policy

By Rupert Cornwell

What theatrics and hypocrisy – nations have always spied

Washington’s foreign policy these days is less about putting pressure on old adversaries than mending fences with key allies. First in the Middle East, where Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Israel are bewildered by US policy zigzags over Syria and Egypt, and disconcerted by a possible thaw between the US and Iran. And now even closer to home in Europe, where the revelations of massive wiretapping by the National Security Agency have angered France and Germany.

The outrage in Paris and Berlin is tinged by theatrics and hypocrisy. Since time immemorial, if governments have been able to spy, they have spied – even on friends. Not only the US does it: France does it, Britain does it, and so, doubtless, does Germany.

Even in the most egregious instance, the alleged eavesdropping by the agency on the personal mobile phone of Angela Merkel, all that is different is the technology. And, it should be added, a spot of America-bashing has never done a French leader much harm.

But the brouhaha is very damaging nonetheless. President Obama’s election was welcomed in Europe as a sign of a less arrogant America, one readier to listen. But not to listen this way.

Instead nothing really seems to have changed since the days of the much-reviled George Bush. Trust between allies has been shaken, at a very delicate moment. And judging by reactions in Washington, the Obama administration has no inclination to rein in the runaway beast that is the NSA.

Yes, Europe and the US will weather this spat. Ties run too deep, and too much is at stake for both sides, not least a massive transatlantic trade deal. But it is a costly distraction. The priority for the US, France and Germany should be getting their policy right over Iran, Syria and Egypt, not getting bogged down in a dispute over electronic snooping.

wanted american traitor on the run?  why can’t we kill this vermin?

I guess most of you already know about this by now.  Or perhaps not.
It’s 9:46am where I am and 4:45am in New York.

Last night’s radio news said the USA might charge the SOB with spying.
Whatever they want to charge him with is okay so long as the final result is an end to his unnecessary breathing.  Along with those pictured at the link.

It doesn’t surprise me that this germ has his supporters outside the USA.  But that he has the support of a good many in the states is disgusting in the extreme.

There’s been some hysteria among some on the left here, that US electronic spies are reading our emails.  How stupid is that?  Think about it. Billions and billions of mails floating about in the ether and the USA is going to try and read emails here. Which ones?  There’s also talk of “inquiries” with regard to the collusion between USA and UK in violating some kind of laws I’m not clear on and do not care the least about.

Was a time in a somewhat more sensible age, when folks like this and that Assange bastard would simply disappear and never be seen or heard from again.

There is talk he may head to Iceland

NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden ‘leaves Hong Kong for Russia voluntarily’

· Hong Kong confirms Edward Snowden has got on flight to Moscow

· It is thought he will travel on to another country like Iceland or Ecuador
· Yesterday Snowden was charged in a federal court in Alexandria, Virginia
· He faces 30 years for charges including unauthorized communication of national defense information and theft of government property
By Rosie Taylor

US whistleblower Edward Snowden has fled Hong Kong on a flight bound for Moscow, the Hong Kong government has confirmed.
The National Security Agency (NSA) intelligence technician, who supplied confidential documents to the media about the extent of government domestic surveillance programmes, had been hiding in the city.
But the Hong Kong government said he had left the country this morning ‘on his own accord for a third country through a lawful and normal channel.’

IS ICELAND SAFE FOR SNOWDEN?

Iceland has a reputation for promoting internet freedoms and has long been discussed as an option for Snowden.
As a U.S. citizen, Snowden would not need a visa to enter Iceland and could immediately apply for asylum. He would be free to live in Iceland while immigration authorities decide his case, which could take more than a year, experts have said.
But if Snowden wants to seek refuge in Iceland, he’ll have to get there first. And this is where the U.S. could have a chance.
Interpol will sometimes issue a ‘red notice’ - which is like an international arrest warrant - but keep it sealed so that the person doesn’t know it exists. If he tried to travel, he would be arrested at the airport.
If he did get to Iceland, it is unknown if he would be safe. The government of newly-elected Prime Minister Sigmundur David Gunnlaugsson is believed to be closer to Washington than past administrations and less keen to foster the country’s cyber-haven image.
‘I would be very surprised if they (the government) would be eager to engage in any international disputes with the U.S. And it is pretty difficult to be granted asylum here,’ Stefania Oskarsdottir, lecturer in political science at the University of Iceland, told Reuters. ‘I think what this guy is saying is based on something he is imagining or hoping for rather than actual facts.’
Iceland does have an extradition treaty with the United States, but it is unclear if it would cover any crimes that he might be charged with.

a most sincere message to an italian court. go fuck yourself commie shits. VIVA EL DUCE!

The Americans were tried in absentia, in the first trial involving extraordinary rendition, the CIA’s practice of transferring suspects to countries where torture is permitted

I have to be honest here. I do not care.  Why the F*** should I care?  And why should the Italians care?  I’m going to protest.  No pizza for a monthtwo weeks okay, no pizza for a week. There’s gotta be a better way to protest and voice my displeasure with Italy.

The Italians should spend more time with important things like beautiful Italian women. And they need to get rid of the immigrant leaches they’re supporting and spend serious money on the restoration of parts and saving the rest of Pompeii and Herculaneum. Money shortages have had a serious impact on the upkeep of these world treasures.  That’s what’s important.  Not worrying about how our guys in the CIA go about protecting our country.

I think our guys should do a hit on their idiot court. Send a message. Screw with the firm and you screw yourself and maybe your family too.

That should go double for these ass wipes who, had I the weapons and the skill and the training, would happily do my country the favor of taking them out.  Oh how I’d enjoy that. Damn. If only.  Yeah, that’s how much filled with raging hate for these insects I am.  I don’t understand why our guys aren’t deleting them. 


Human rights activists praise decision

US and international human rights groups praised the decision to uphold the verdict. Milan Prosecutor Armando Spataro told AP that the decision recognized that extraordinary rendition “is incompatible with democracy,” and that extradition based on the verdict was now warranted.

An Amnesty International expert on counter-terrorism and human rights, Julia Hall, echoed Spataro’s comments, saying “This important decision is another step towards accountability for violations that took place during the US rendition operations…The High Court has recognized that blanket claims of state secrecy cannot be used to shield the government from accountability for human rights violations.”

“Though legal questions remain, such as the validity of trials in absentia, American officials would be wise to heed the Italian court’s message that those who violate the law will be called to answer,” Jamil Dakwar, director of the ACLU Human Rights Program, said in statement.

Now here’s the story I got from BBC news.

Italy upholds verdict on CIA agents in rendition case

Italy’s highest appeals court has upheld guilty verdicts on 23 Americans, all but one of them CIA agents, accused of kidnapping a terror suspect.

Their case related to the abduction of an Egyptian cleric in Milan in 2003.

The man, known as Abu Omar, was allegedly flown to Egypt and tortured.

The Americans were tried in absentia, in the first trial involving extraordinary rendition, the CIA’s practice of transferring suspects to countries where torture is permitted.

The practice has been condemned by human rights groups as a violation of international agreements.

The group of Americans - 22 of whom were CIA agents and one an Air Force pilot - are believed to be living in the US and are unlikely to serve their sentences.

Italy has never requested their extradition but they will be unable to travel to Europe without risking arrest.

The group include the former station chief of CIA operations in Milan, Robert Seldon Lady.

At the time, he said that his opposition to the proposal to kidnap the imam was overruled.

The court upheld the sentences of the lower court which had sentenced all of them to seven years in prison, apart from Seldon Lady, who was given a nine-year sentence.

The Court of Cassation also ruled that five senior Italian secret service agents - including the former head of the country’s military intelligence agency - should be tried for their role in the kidnapping.

Nicolo Pollari resigned over the affair in which Hassan Mustafa Osama Nasr, an Egyptian imam also known as Abu Omar, was snatched from a Milan street.

Abu Omar says he was tortured for seven months in Egypt.

cloak and dagger stuff

SECURITY STING

Found in the letters page today of the Daily Mail.
Sorry, no link to letters to editor or anything close. If you can find it, PLEASE let me know what ya did.

The writer is identified as Carl Clark, of Norfolk, UK

HAVING had dealings in the past with both British and Israeili Intelligence, I know the one thing that never happens is for Mossad to warn other agencies of what they’re up to.  They don’t trust anyone apart from themselves.  I worked alongside them for three years.

This Dubai affair is a ‘false flag’ operation and the main agency in the frame is MI6 alonside mercenary ‘deniable assets’ living in Israel and elsewhere,

Some are trying to pin the blame on Mossad, but I can promise you that the guys and gals who took part in this botched operation were expendable sources who have been compromised and have been set up in a brilliant sting by MI6 and the CIA to discredit Mossad.  Hats off to the think tank behind this operation.

When I was operating several years back, we certainlt didn’t get our faces on CCTV cameras.  Mabhouh could have been taken out without all this publicity.  Mossad doesn’t advertise.

There’s a lot of competition between the Israelis and the UK and US intellengence agencies and this won’t be the first time they’ve hijacked each others methods.

I hope but don’t know if the writer of this letter was able to prove to the MAIL he was who he said and actually did work in intel with the ppl he says he did.
If he’s telling the truth, it seems odd does it not that he’d use a word like “source” where surely “assets” is the proper description. I’m not expert so it’s only a guess.  I have to wonder as well that with the threat of terrorism we have, that the agencies would pull off stunts to discredit another agency thought to be a friendly ally. Ok, friendly may be pushing it a bit sometimes but you get the picture.  Don’t these folks need each other? 
The world of spooks and cloak and dagger stuff is always fascinating.  The way the mind works. And in many cases doesn’t.
Be great to be the invisible man and hang around the conf. room to listen to what the intel agencies are saying at this moment.  I bet it would be very interesting.
