Dennis Blair does not learn his lesson on Chas Freeman.
Glenn Reynolds reminds me of something I saw a few days ago, but forgot about. I just wanted to note that while I’m flattered that DNI Dennis Blair thinks that we in the blogosphere are powerful enough – or notorious enough – to blame for the way that Chas Freeman got steamrollered: On the Charles – on the Chas Freeman appointment, I am happy to | Read More »
Charles Freeman: And I would have gotten away with it, too…
…if it wasn’t for those meddlesome Jews: I have concluded that the barrage of libelous distortions of my record would not cease upon my entry into office. The effort to smear me and to destroy my credibility would instead continue. I do not believe the National Intelligence Council could function effectively while its chair was under constant attack by unscrupulous people with a passionate attachment | Read More »

Blair: “Director of National Intelligence Dennis C. Blair announced today that Ambassador Charles W. Freeman Jr. has | Read More »
The progressive movement’s abandonment of human rights, Part 45.
Here’s the thing: I’ve met Michael Barone. I know that he’s smart. Frighteningly so, in fact. And I know that he pays attention to details, in ways that usually startle the living life out of people who aren’t used to it. In other words, this is an aware guy that we’re talking about. So why the surprise, here? All of which brings to mind the | Read More »
Shorter Chas Freeman: the rabble at Tiananmen Square weren’t suppressed *enough*.
NO. REALLY. But I want to take issue with what I assume, perhaps incorrectly, to be yoiur citation of the conventional wisdom about the 6/4 [or Tiananmen] incident. I find the dominant view in China about this very plausible, i.e. that the truly unforgivable mistake of the Chinese authorities was the failure to intervene on a timely basis to nip the demonstrations in the bud, | Read More »
