John Brennan, Assassination Czar

Between appearing on Democracy Now this morning and some other things, I’ll be out of pocket most of the day.

But I should say that I didn’t invent the moniker “Assassination Czar.” I’m not sure who did (though I’m happy to provide credit!), but here’s to hoping use of it embarrasses the Administration into reversing their plan to run the Yemen war out of the White House.

emptywheel If I were asking these questions I'd ask what happened at Mueller's May 2004 meeting at Cheney's office and at his request. Never explained.

emptywheel @Ali_Gharib This is you announcing your book on all the lies Israel has gotten away with? I expect to read it in 2024, then?

bmaz @nickmartin Then again, McCain will say anything to get his name in the news and appear to be relevant.

bmaz @MikeScarcella But OPR and David Margolis just couldn't find any sanctionable behavior. Funny how that is.
