    Yes, they are, extensively, I know first hand, I was hired by State. They spent about 3 months going through every thing in my record, interviewed neighbors, former bosses, went through my bank accounts, records, any travel internationally I had done (and there was a lot of it), and, because I am a dual citizen, they had the other country do the same. I was surveilled for a time, and if I had even picked my nose at a stoplight, they would have known... And this was for an administrative management job. Ultimately I didn't accept it, I had just purchased my house and my dog and couldn't drop everything to move to DC and then to a mystery embassy at the drop of a hat. If I knew that I was going to move to an embassy in a stable, nice country, that would have swayed my decision, but they could have sent me to any number of armpits of the world, including ones that don't even have decent beer.

    If I could see the source, I may believe them. But uploading a pdf is too much for them I guess.
    Oh, so NOW sources are relevant? Why is that? Hell, for the past 6 years the only thing the media needed to impugn republicans is "a source says".....Now we need iron clad confirmation....LOL....

    Secretary of State John Kerry eventually added Boko Haram and its splinter group Ansaru to the list of foreign terrorist organizations in Nov. 2013, following a spate of church bombings and other acts that demonstrated the group's escalating abilities to wreak havoc.....snip~

    Did you want to now say that the Entire media World got it wrong when Kerry Designated them as a Terrorist Group in 2013?


    What happened to way back in 2012? "Whats up", with that State Dept Website you were talking about. Got that PDF when you can point out whats different than the rest of world knows.....and actual reality.

    Gee.....the Entire World of Media and Overseas Media to vs You and the State Dept. Imagine that!
    I bet the Entire World of Media and Overseas Media can find and access the US State Department's website.

    Well I know I can.....but now what do you got to say about Kerry designating them a terrorist group in 2013 wherein all the media reported what Kerry did and said? Which btw Tecoyah had already shown in the Post Right above yours.


    Whats your excuse now......and oh do show us this startling information that shows Kerry didn't do what the World said he did.

    I see....LOL....I find it almost predictable that now that it is Obama, or Hillary under the microscope that we are going to start hearing how 'un named sources', and 'he said, she said' type of reporting is not going to be good enough.

    Yeah I know.....I just had him try and tell me there was no difference between a Select Committee and a Joint Investigating Committee in my Benghazi thread.

    You should see all the deflection.....even when sources are up and even when BO's own words shows it for what it is.

    I even have the Guardian with the US Version and What was the Ground version and by whom. They still talk about nothing is there.

    Sources are always relevent to me, I can't speak for the standards of the media I'm not responsible for those.

    Maybe so, maybe not....I can't say for sure, but I don't recall you piping up in the past when stories against repubs that were based on "un named sources", or "people close to the person, place, or thing say..." Why is that? Why is it that NOW you choose to be skeptical of these mystery people, and what they say?

    Meehan and his Democratic counterpart Jackie Speier put out a lengthy report in 2011 laying out the evidentiary basis for naming Boko Haram a terrorist organization, including the group's ties to Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb and to Somalia’s al-Shabab terrorist organization.



    Of course this is Hillary bashing. Kerry wasn't the one on the receiving end of those reports, letters, legislation, etc. He was still a US Senator then. The buck stopped with her until February 2013.


    While this is all true, let's take a moment to bask in the warm glow of a Pro-Hillary poster whipping out a "B-B-BUT KERRY".
