McCAIN'S LATEST SCREWUP....More Catholic than the Pope?

Apparently that's John McCain's new strategy:

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) will launch a high-profile effort next week to convince Americans that the Iraq war is winnable, embracing the unpopular conflict with renewed vigor as he attempts to reignite his stalling bid for the presidency.

This sounds like a godsend for McCain's opponents: he's making it slam-dunk easy for them to run to his left on the war without having to sound like they're completely giving up on it. Romney and Giuliani ought to be dancing in the streets at this news.

Teak,

I've just been reading the news on Cheney on WMR. If true, it's quite staggering.

It brings up the subject of the death of Dr David Kelley, the British MOD defence on weapons of mass destruction who was found dead in woods near his home in Oxfordshire while I and various friends and friends of the family were celebrating my father's 70th birthday in July, 2003.

I do not believe that Dr David Kelley took his own life and there may well be parallels between his apparent suicide and the suicide/disappearance murder of John Arthur Paisley, the high-ranking CIA employee John Arthur Paisley who disappeared while sailing on Chesapeake Bay in the fall of 1978.

I have long been intrigued by Paisley's "bizarre disappearance" and even phoned Joe Trento, who wrote the breaking stories on the case back in '78, to discuss our views. Joe's view is nidentical to that presented in the Time magazine article. I suspect the Time magazine article to be misinformation, tho' I believe Joe wrote what he did in good faith. I think his problem is, as with all journalists dependent on inside sources, is that they can become manipulated by their inside source. (Tho' Joe would not discuss sources, I suspect that his inside source in the CIA was a disgruntled right-wing CIA employee, David S. Sullivan.)

This, I believe , is what may have happened with Woodward and Deep Throat, whoever he was, and I don't buy that crap that came out in the news a couple of years ago about Mark Felt being Deep Throat.

If you go to the JFK page on my website, Friends of the American Revolution, you will find there a Time Magazine article from the February of 1979 on the subject, plus several extracts from various books in which Paisley's "disappearance" is discussed.

I sense that his "disappearance" is far more significant than merely that of a low-level retired CIA operative as was reported at the time.
