Red Star, wasn't even translated to English till 1984, Now if you want to make the Space Program, the ultimate embodiment of the New Deal, specially the Navy and Air Force dominant training program, you are a little closer,

"

Of course, there's also the Melian dialogues to consider,

Well I haven't gotten my hands on the last, that was the most recent, but you're up in the Big Apple, so you might get it faster.

the Arabist story on the mujtahid, is more interesting,

"

Trofimov, does suggest the Juhayman coup was certainly provoked by the uncertainty of the Carter administration, but
the wider context was Bin Baz's lectures, as was Mawdudi on the other end of the Subcontinent

"

Actually having seen a special on the 'Scottish play' one can think of it as a variation on that oft told tale, Skylar did not initially know of Walt's bloody climb to the top, but she has ultimately given her consent to it,

"

Well Greenwald is not as hard to understand as you think, recall he also defended the Nazi preacher and wannabe attorney Hale, most any deliberate violent opponent of our system, either him or Hamas qualifies.

On “The Unquestionably Un-Complicated Matter of Torture

Any tool, whether aggressive interrogation, or a drone strike, can be good or bad, depending on the circumstances,
this is the problem with the absolutists like Glenn Greenwald, an team of operators, like those that went down in the month after Abbotabad, is perhaps the most effective, but most a most likely risk.

Sadly there is no environment for a liberal figure like Zaghul to emerge, which really was the point of the exercise,

"

She exaggerated some aspects of the interrogations, conducted in places like Poland and Romania, but the point is unlikely the notions that the likes of Ould Slahi, were just misunderstood folks, swept off the street, they were close enough to the original organization, to know who the courier was, Isikoff, basically riffing of the wiki, Bergen and now Bowden have admitted this played a part,

"

I don't get the Arabist's complaint, now it's more likely that the overall milieu in Beni Suief, lends it self to these circumstances, however the Constitution makes it more likely

"

a historian friend of mine, found Goldberg's treatment very insightful, then again his experiences in Argentina, sort of ratified the point,

"

Well I would not be one to criticize someone on their looks, when her category error, re Teo', among other issues, is enough
grounds, for scrutiny,

"

No, the drone program is essentially amoral, it's overuse without safeguards does pose problems, but they are tools,
and it's a valid point, what more effective tool would the detractors recommend, even using operators like Abbotabad runs risks.

"

I wonder does Powell pick up these witticism, from Prince Bandar, who is now the Saudi spy chief,

"

I'm sure Ramses 11, was also misunderstood in that same way. Denial isn't unique to Egypt it seems.

"

Looks like Acheron (LV-426) from the film Alien, without the atmospheric processors.

"

They have made it quite clear that they are nonplused with Iran getting a nuke, now the Stuixnet or the Flame, were a long term obstacle.

"

Well I don't disagree with Roy, but that wasn't the revolution was sold, to the sucker, I mean idealists in Tahrir Square,

"

Well that's an interesting question, since Roddenberry was air force, (the whole Captain Christopher episode reffed on that,
the Federation was more like the Navy, but also had elements of Parker's LAPD, which was organized along Marine lines,

"

There is more evidence in her early work, 'Blue Steel' with Jamie Lee Curtis, and the late Ron Silver, but Chastain is removed from the action, in this one,

"

It takes a chiropractor, to disentangle that category error, Maya doesn't derive pleasure from the interrogation, her job is to gather, organize and provide guidance to the operators,

"

It would be nice if one could have served a warrant on him, but the local police precinct in Abbotabad, obviously knew of their most famous resident, and the boys at Aapbara certainly knew
as they had served as his moving company, and protection detail.

"

Oh for Pete's sake, one hunts down the outlaw, and they put him down for the count, the interrogation scene, could not be more nuanced, taking all accounts into consideration, the amusing thing is how in retrospect, all of the subjected players were given the benefit of the doubt, and they even tried to release them, with Hassan Ghul, we actually 'rendered him back to Pakistan, and then he got out,

"

I think they've been a little too cavalier with the use of the drone,
I'm sure if this was occuring under W, recall the Bajaur attempt on Zawahiri, we wouldn't hear the end of it, and Brennan has been at the forefront of composing the target lists,
