President Obama Skipped His Intel Brief the Day After the U.S. Ambassador to Libya was Murdered by Terrorists

    Marc Thiessen provides a shocker in his Washington Post column: the day after America’s embassy in Cairo was assaulted and the consulate in Benghazi, Libya fell victim to an armed attack that killed four, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens, the president once again skipped his intelligence briefing, choosing instead to fly off to Las Vegas to fundraise while the world continued to burn. This after being | Read More »

    President Obama Has Missed Half His Daily Intelligence Briefings

    As North African blows up this morning it is worth reminding you of Marc Thiessen’s column from two days ago. President Obama is touting his foreign policy experience on the campaign trail, but startling new statistics suggest that national security has not necessarily been the personal priority the president makes it out to be. It turns out that more than half the time, the commander | Read More »

    Lindsey Lohan Republicans

    I love Marc Thiessen columns at the Washington Post like I love moon pies and Coca-Cola — a most excellent combination of fine dining in the South.His column on Lindsey Lohan Republicans is no different. The fact is that Republican leaders in the House are looking toward a compromise on earmarks that would fall short of a total ban. Those advocating such a compromise say | Read More »

    Lawrence O’Donnell loses it at Marc Thiessen.

    I actually had a better title in mind, but it’s too earthy for RedState. Anyway, watch this fascinating exercise in ‘speaking truth to power’ towards Marc Thiessen by O’Donnell: If you conclude from that clip that ‘speaking truth to power’ is more or less equivalent to ‘throwing… feces’ [more earthy language, sorry] – well, you could be forgiven for that, given the evidence.

    Thiessen and Amanpour

    I have written about this before. Marc Thiessen was on with Christiane Amanpour earlier in the week on CNN’s International network to discuss his new book. They had a heated confrontation that is well worth watching.The interview was to air on the U.S. network today, but because of the situation in Haiti, it got bumped. Nonetheless, I think you should consider taking a few minutes | Read More »

    Sparks Fly as ‘Courting Disaster’ Author Clashes with CNN’s Amanpour

    I wrote about this last night, but I wanted to highlight it again. Instead of me recreating the wheel, jump over to Human Events where you can read key bits of the transcript between Thiessen and Amanpour. This is powerful stuff. Thiessen really did well defending the CIA and enhanced interrogation. It was delightful watching him make everyone one else eat their words.Example: Thiessen told | Read More »

    Wow. Marc Thiessen Smokes Amanpour and Sands

    I had wanted to make my way through Courting Disaster: How the CIA Kept America Safe and How Barack Obama Is Inviting the Next Attack before writing about it (full disclosure: Regnery Publishing, like us, is owned by Eagle Publishing, Inc.), but in light of tonight’s interview between Marc Thiessen and Christiane Amanpour, I need to write about it now.
