Ex-Officer Is First in C.I.A. to Face
Prison for a Leak

New York Times, by Scott Shane

Original Article

Posted By:schnapps, 1/5/2013 7:54:17 PM

Looking back, John C. Kiriakou admits he should have known better. But when the F.B.I. called him a year ago and invited him to stop by and “help us with a case,” he did not hesitate. (snip)Only an hour into what began as a relaxed chat with the two agents — the younger one who traded Pittsburgh Steelers talk with him and the senior investigator with the droopy eye — did he begin to realize just who was the target of the investigation.

Comments:
Where was the same NYT sympathy for Scooter Libby who did NOT leak the name of a covert agent yet is still in jail?

The Slimes is attempting to gin up some sympathy for a rat who sold out one of his own.

I don´t condone what he did or argue that he should not go to prison. I just have a very hard time with him being prosecuted by the Obama Administration that had revealed a lot of classified information, outed the special forces who got Bin Laden and even gave information to freaking Hollywood to make a movie about Obama. If I were him I would be contrite but also very bitter.

Wow. Fast justice. Too bad the FBI didn´t accomplish the same feat for Leaky Leahy and the thugs in the WH who routinely spill secrets to every enemy of the US.

Scooter Libby never went to prison. His sentence was commuted by President Bush. He was not pardoned, which caused Dick Cheney to get angry with President Bush´s decision.

Nicaragua scraps term limits in
boost for socialist Ortega
Reuters, by Ivan Castro    Original Article
Posted By: schnapps- 1/28/2014 3:43:17 PM     Post Reply
MANAGUA - Nicaragua´s national assembly on Tuesday voted to scrap presidential term limits, which could allow socialist President Daniel Ortega to remain in power indefinitely and has stoked concerns about democracy in the Central American country. Lawmakers must still formally sign off on the details of the bill, likely in a vote on Wednesday, which will make the impoverished country the latest in a string of Latin American nations from Bolivia to Ecuador to give presidents power extending beyond their traditional limits.

San Francisco - A California judge ruled on Monday against the state´s plan to issue more than $8 billion in bonds to help build an 800-mile high-speed train system and rescinded the project´s funding plan, which estimates the system´s cost at $68 billion. Judge Michael Kenny of Sacramento County Superior Court said in a written ruling that there was too little information to support the decision by the California High-Speed Rail Authority to move forward with the debt sale. (snip) In a separate decision, Kenny ordered the rail authority to rescind its funding plan for the statewide passenger rail system but

California grants driver’s licenses
to illegal immigrants

California Gov. Jerry Brown signed a bill Thursday granting illegal immigrants driver’s licenses, in a decision immigrant rights groups hailed as a major step forward for their movement. ( snip ) Mr. Brown, a Democrat, still has several other major immigration bills pending on his desk that he must sign or reject by Oct. 13, including one that would require localities to turn over violent criminal immigrants that federal authorities want to deport. The new California licenses will have special markings that show they aren’t supposed to be used as identification for federal purposes,

Gen. Wesley Clark claimed he’s the victim of “general indignities” by his wife, in divorce papers that blame her for their marriage’s breakdown -- and not his alleged fling with a much-younger woman. The 68-year-old former NATO Supreme Commander is filing for divorce in Arkansas against Gertrude Kingston Clark, in hopes of ending their 46-year marriage. Clark cited “general indignities” for the reason behind the divorce, according to the Daily Mail.

Air cushioning: That´s the high-concept technology behind the high-speed transit concept that billionaire Elon Musk calls the Hyperloop. Musk - who already plays leading roles in the SpaceX rocket venture, the Tesla electric car company and the SolarCity solar-energy company - unveiled what he has called the "alpha" version of the Hyperloop plan in a blog post on Monday. (snip) The plan is aimed at cutting the travel time between San Francisco and Los Angeles to a half-hour, at a price that´s less than an airline ticket between those two cities.

KENOSHA, Wis. —WISN 12 News investigates an operation raising questions about the use of government resources and the state policy that meant a death sentence for a fawn. "It was like a SWAT team," shelter employee Ray Schulze said. Two weeks ago, Schulze was working in the barn at the Society of St. Francis on the Kenosha-Illinois border when a swarm of squad cars arrived and officers unloaded with a search warrant. "(There were) nine DNR agents and four deputy sheriffs, and they were all armed to the teeth," Schulze said. The focus of their search was a baby fawn

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
