Out Of The Blue & Into The Black: Sad Farewells & A Moment For Schacht

They give you this, but they gave us Schacht.

Hi there friends of the Emptywheel blog. The collective lost another longtime voice.

It’s better to burn out
than it is to rust
The king is gone
but he’s not forgotten.

Hey hey, my my
Rock and roll can never die
There’s more to the picture
Than meets the eye.
Hey hey, my my.

Our friend Dr. Robert Schacht. Knew him for years online, and then met him personally at Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport in a bar. Wow. One smart and fun human.

He never burned out, he never came to rust. Bob Schacht will never fade away.

Thank you Bob Schacht.

Vaya con dios and Aloha.

emptywheel Back to reading Terror Watchlist. I honestly believe that Peter King still qualifies. Am I reading this properly?

emptywheel @JulieATate They lost ability to wiretap on parts of AQAP bc of Daily Beast story, then blamed it on Snowden. Maybe that? @KenDilanianAP

emptywheel Apparently Raj De did not prep by reading @bartongellman's analysis showing that you don't have to be communicating w/target to be collected

emptywheel John Rizzo says 12333 has been on the books for years. Doesn't say Bush "amended" 12333 in 2001 but did not change text of EO until 2008.
