After what happened in the Civilian Court in NY 17 Nov 10 this is even more important to read. As President George W. Bush's top speechwriter, Marc Thiessen was provided unique access to the CIA program used in interrogating top Al Qaeda terrorists, including the mastermind of the 9/11 attack, Khalid Sheikh Mohammad (KSM). Now, his riveting new book, "Courting Disaster", How the CIA Kept America Safe (Regnery), has been published. Here is an excerpt from "Courting Disaster": Just before dawn on March 1, 2003, two dozen heavily armed Pakistani tactical assault forces move in and surround a safe house in Rawalpindi. A few hours earlier they had received a text message from an informant inside the house. It read: "I am with KSM." Bursting in, they find the disheveled mastermind of the 9/11 attacks, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, in his bedroom. He is taken into custody. In the safe house, they find a treasure trove of computers, documents, cell phones and other valuable "pocket litter." Once in custody, KSM is defi ...
“If you love your job, you’re going to be good at it. And President Obama clearly doesn’t love his job, and he’s clearly not very good at it.” Marc Thiessen responded to reports from Politico that Obama staffers have said the president is “fed up” ahead of the midterm elections.
The White House today cited success in the fight against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria. Marc Thiessen had a different take on 'The Kelly File' tonight: “There is this serial dishonesty that’s happening. If we were succeeding, ISIS would be retreating – not advancing. So, no serious person thinks that we’re succeeding.”
June 30, 2014 Big Brother by Kerby Anderson Subscribe to Kerby's Point of View If you want to appreciate the divisions in America, all you have to do is look at the editorial page of newspapers. Often you will see two diametrically different views of reality. A good example of that happened last week. The title of Marc Thiessen's Washington Post op-ed was "Big Brother Isn't Watching You." The title of Senator Rand Paul's Wall Street Journal op-ed was "Big Brother Really Is Watching You." Obviously, they disagreed about how to react to the NSA revelation. Marc Thiessen was concerned that the latest revelations "give terrorists information they did not have about our collection activities." He also worried that the latest series of leaks teach sources and partners "not to work with us because we cannot keep a secret." Only an intelligence expert can tell us whether these leaks really told terrorists anything they didn't already know. They probably guessed that phone records were being obtained in specific w ...
If conservatives are furious about the Taliban prisoner exchange that freed Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, the members of Team Bush are absolutely frothing at the mouth. Writing in the Washington Post, former Bush speechwriters Michael Gerson and Marc Thiessen suggested that at best, President Obama does not have the attitude that "we will fight you as long as you fight us" and, at worst, "is surrendering to the Taliban." Echoing the demands of the likes of Allen West and Fox News regular Jeanine Pirro that Obama be impeached, President Bush's last Attorney General Michael Mukasey declared that the "wholesale release of dangerous people" would merit removal from office. While not surprising from people who have been advocating the impeachment of Barack Obama for five years, the statements are nevertheless more than a little ironic. After all, under President Bush more than 500 detainees were released from Guantanamo Bay. And when the Supreme Court upheld the habeas corpus rights of the U.S prisoners there in June 20 ...

Despite missteps, Obama hasn’t done badly in Syria How did it happen that less than a year after Barack Obama convincingly won re-election, his every move as president now draws hoots and catcalls from nearly every point on the political spectrum? Perhaps his Syria policy really is a story of “epic incompetence,” as Charles Krauthammer opined last week. Maybe he has an “unbelievably small” presidency, as Marc Thiessen commented, or that no one is afraid of him, as Ruth Marcus argued. And that’s just a sampling of opinion from my colleagues at The Washington Post. What’s puzzling about this latest Obama-phobia is that recent developments in Syria have generally been positive from the standpoint of U.S. interests. Obama has accomplished goals that most Americans endorse, given the unpalatable menu of choices. Polls suggest that the public overwhelmingly backs the course Obama has chosen. Asked in a Washington Post-ABC News survey if they endorsed the U.S.-Russian plan to dismantle Syrian chemi ...

On the 12th the Washington Post is starting a paywall. I spend about ten times more energy posting there than here, mostly on the Plum Line. Lately enjoying it less, because whie it's now possible to block trolls the place has become chatty and there is too much chummy banter and too much sports (any amount is too much, I detest sports). But I am not willing to contribute to the salaries of Jennifer Rubin and George Will, nor to financially support a paper so supportive of Republicans and neoconservatism. I don't think I will be spending the extra time here, though.
Where's Holder on Team Obama's Leakers? Brent Bozell The national media have evinced some outrage over the Obama Justice Department's aggressive persecution of investigative journalists. But not enough. It is more important to help President Hope and Change overcome the legacy-strangling notion of an "atmosphere of scandal" than to investigate a scandal that is strangling their very profession. On Sunday's "Face the Nation," New York Times editor Jill Abramson claimed to be very concerned about the leak probe, but proclaimed of all these scandals that, "I'm just not sure, you know, they come together and create, you know -- quote, unquote -- 'an atmosphere of scandal.'" Even worse was the Associated Press, which posted a story calling the government rifling through its reporters' phone records an "alleged scandal." The Times drew attention by refusing to attend a meeting on the leak probes with Attorney General Eric Holder since it was declared off the record. But when some journalists met with Holder and ...

Description In recent weeks, the White House has been under siege from all sides for its stewardship of the nation’s executive authority. The Obama administration has been accused of eavesdropping on journalists, of unfairly targeting conservative nonprofits, and of botching (and belatedly trying to cover up) national security crises. The president tried to change the subject by announcing the beginning of the end of the war on terror, but raised more questions than he answered, including: Does the 2012 Benghazi attack coverup have implications for Syria? Will we ever close Guantanamo? How will the president keep America safe and restore his credibility? AEI scholars Danielle Pletka, Marc Thiessen, and Jonah Goldberg will discuss the scandals plaguing the White House and consider likely implications. We invite you to tune in to their Google Hangout conversation.

This FREAKING apologist "Simon" for Obama is on Fox right now saying that Obama NEVER blamed Benghazi on a video, and said from "the first day" that this was a terror attack, a "military style attack". Obama's people think they can tell us what to think and change the propaganda at will, like any dictator. This is on Megyn Kelly, and its Marc Thiessen who is the voice of sanity.

Sad the mainstream media has try to down play this and cover up the details as much as possible. Our president went to bed that night knowing this was a terrorist attack, dismissed the facts and lied to the American people and blamed it on a video, then flew out the next morning to vegas for a fundraiser. On Monday the same Washington Post columnist, Marc Thiessen, reported that the president has missed 62 percent of his daily in-person intel briefings in 2011 and 2012. President Bush almost never missed a briefing after 9/11. I recognize that a president's schedule is extremely demanding, especially in the teeth of a campaign, so passing on these meetings occasionally would be understandable. I cannot, however, fathom how the president could justify canceling and not re-scheduling his intelligence briefing the day after an active US Ambassador was murdered in the line of duty, and as an international crisis continues to spread. The White House offers a two-fold defense on this: First, make snide rema ...

President Obama and the "Intelligence Brief" Scandal By Dr. Paul Kengor The last few weeks have produced many intriguing political moments, but none as shocking as the revelation that President Obama has been absent from the vast majority of his daily intelligence briefings. According to a study by the Government Accountability Institute, Obama failed to attend a single Presidential Daily Brief (PDB) in the week leading up to the recent anniversary of 9/11 and the chaos that erupted in the Arab world. The mere fact that we were approaching 9/11 was a crucial enough reason to attend not one but all the briefings. President Obama attended none. Worse, this is apparently nothing new. Obama attended only 43.8 percent of his Daily Briefs in the first 1,225 days of his administration. For this year, he attended a little over a third. This is stunning, and there’s no excuse for it. Washington Post columnist, Marc Thiessen, who worked for President George W. Bush, pressed NSC spokesman Tommy Vietor for an expla ...

Simon Rosenberg and Marc Thiessen responded to Bret Baier's revelations today that it was known immediately that the Libyan attack was terror, and planned, not a mob response to the infamous video.

Marc Thiessen begins his new book, “Courting Disaster,” with something of a disclaimer: For reasons of security and classification, he says, he should not have been able to write it. He’s right.
Ah. I was wondering about this. The Republicans have been throwing around a claim that President Obama skips his daily Intelligence Briefings... one even unwisely used the term "empty chair". As if the Presidential briefing goes on without the President there? Turns out... "About the same time, the Republican National Committee and prominent Republicans such as *** Cheney and John McCain threw another faulty bit of plumbing at Obama: that the president “does not attend his daily intelligence meeting” more than half the time, in contrast to George W. Bush, who “almost never missed his daily intelligence meeting.” This claim was the work of former Bush speechwriter Marc Thiessen, who writes a weekly online column for The Washington Post. In reality, Obama didn’t “attend” these meetings, because there were no meetings to attend: The oral briefings had been mostly replaced by daily exchanges in which Obama reads the materials and poses written questions and comments to intelligence officials. ...
Just some stuff you should know. “It is my intention, if elected, to disarm America to the level of acceptance of our Middle East Bretheren.” (Candidate Obama, Washington Post, 9/7/2008) "But perhaps it's not surprising. American Enterprise Institute's Marc Thiessen revealed last week that Obama has skipped more than half of his daily intelligence briefings. He reads the reports instead. His last in-person briefing before 9/11/12 was on Sept. 5."

Newest GOP National Security Attack on Obama: He Reads Ben Adler on September 13, 2012 - 8:11 PM ET You can tell that Republicans are frustrated that they don’t enjoy their usual advantage on national security issues in this election. They’ve been churlish about President Obama’s success in decimating Al Qaeda’s leadership and they’ve glommed onto Mitt Romney’s false accusation that Obama “apologized for America.” And yet it hasn’t worked. Obama remains more trusted to keep the country safe, as his record warrants. This week saw the roll-out of two bogus smears of Obama on national security. One—Romney’s untrue claim that the Obama administration apologized to Islamists for the documentary that inspired anti-American protests in Egypt, Libya and Yemen—has been incisively tracked and debunked by The Nation’s George Zornick and Robert Dreyfuss. The other, however, is equally ludicrous. Marc Thiessen, a former foreign policy speechwriter for President George W. Bush, devoted his mos ...
