ERIC COHN HAS BEEN RUSHED TO THE HOSPITAL.
THE ALLEGED REPORTER WAS DISCOVERED NEARLY CHOKED TO DEATH.
AFTER PARAMEDICS REMOVED HIM FROM THE COCK OF FADED CELEBRITY IN CHIEF BARRY O, THEY ATTEMPTED TO SPEAK TO COHN WHO INSISTED THAT EVEN THOUGH BARRY O HAD DONE NOTHING TO "SAVE" THE INTERVIEW IT WAS IMPORTANT FOR A CHEAP AND DIRTY WHORE LIKE ERIC COHN TO GIVE HIM CREDIT.
"I REGRET THAT MY GAG REFLEXES DID NOT ALLOW ME TO FULLY PLEASURE MY CULT LEADER," ERIC INSISTED WITH TEARS FLOWING FROM HIS EYES.
PARAMEDICS TOLD THESE REPORTERS THAT IT WAS IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER SOMEONE CAN "JUST AS EASILY CHOKE ON A TINY VIENNA SAUSAGE AS ON AN EARL CAMPBELL HOT LINK" MEANING DON'T MISTAKE COHN'S NEAR DEATH EXPERIENCE FOR MEANING THAT PRINCESS TINY MEAT IS LARGELY ENDOWED.
FROM THE TCI WIRE:
Starting with WikiLeak's latest exposure. Last week, they released a report the CIA prepared for US President Barack Obama. The report, dated July 7, 2009, is entitled [PDF format warning] "Making High-Value Targeting Operations an Effective Counterinsurgency Tool" and is the CIA's flash-card style explanation to Barack of counterinsurgency and the value of killing.
The term they use is "High-Value Targeting" which they explain:
We define high-value targeting as focused operations against specific individuals or networks whose removal or marginalization should disproportionately degrade an insurgent group's effectiveness. The criteria for designating high-value targets will vary according to factors such as the insurgent group's capabilities, structure, and leadership dynamics and the government's desired outcome.
The biggest shock of the brief paper is how much they dumb it down -- apparently not expecting much of their intended audiences.
A few things emerge.
On Iraq, we learn that cleric and movement leader Moqtada al-Sadr was smart to spend those long periods of time outside of Iraq -- the Sadr movement was targeted and, the report makes clear, not just by the United States, "The Iraqi Government has been using HVT efforts to eliminate irreconcilable Sadrist militant leaders and moderate the Sadrist movement. "
An outstanding arrest warrant was out on Moqtada al-Sadr and it was often noted, while he was in Iran, that one of the reasons he remained out of the country was that he suspected/feared Nouri al-Maliki would issue it to have him arrested.
Clearly concerns of being targeted by the government were valid ones.
Also clear, the CIA is a huge embarrassment when it comes to referencing, "In Iraq, Jaysh Muhammad (JM) suffered a significant setback in late 2004 after British replacements in short succession, according to the Jordian General Intelligence Directorate." You're the CIA and you're shoring up a point with "according to the Jordian General Intelligence Directorate"?
Then again, maybe that was another part of dumbing it down for the intended reader?
Also writing? Joshua J. McElwee (National Catholic Reporter) notes:
Pope Francis has written a Christmas letter to the dwindling Christian community in the Middle East, offering his solidarity in what he calls their "enormous suffering" amid the horrific and sustained violence of the Islamic State militant group.
Issuing the almost 2,000-word letter in eight languages Tuesday, the pope also says that he wishes to visit the region and condemns continued arms trafficking there "in the strongest possible terms."
Arms trafficking sales are big business -- legal sales and illegal sales. The leading legal arms trafficker to Iraq would appear to be the United States. Doug Cameron (Nasdaq) reports:
U.S. government approvals for U.S. weapon sales to Iraq have nearly tripled this year to almost $15 billion, promising much-needed work for U.S. weapons factories if the proposed deals can overcome congressional concerns.
The slew of deals includes $3 billion in possible sales announced last week that still need to be approved by Congress and would boost sluggish U.S. demand for General Dynamics Corp.'s M1A1 Abrams tanks as well as Humvee armored cars produced by closely held AM General LLC.
