My One Question for WaPo Regarding The Journolist

More from The Daily Caller today, detailing the political connections on the Journolist, where Obama operatives, Democratic political strategists, and liberal media types mixed:
Despite its name, membership in the liberal online community Journolist wasn’t limited to journalists. Present among the bloggers, reporters and editors were a number of professional political operatives, including top White House economic advisors, key Obama political appointees, and Democratic campaign veterans. Some left government to join Journolist. Others took the opposite route. A few contributed to Journolist from their perches in politics. At times, it became difficult to tell who was supposed to be covering policy and who was trying to make it.

Two of the administration’s chief economic advisors, Jared Bernstein, the vice president’s top economist, and Jason Furman, deputy director of the National Economic Council, were members of Journolist until they began working officially for Obama.

Ilan Goldenberg, now an advisor on Middle East policy at the Pentagon, was a member until he joined the administration. Moira Whelan left Journolist to work at the Department of Homeland Security .

Anne-Marie Slaughter left to work at the State Department. Former Journolist member Ben Brandzel is now a top staffer at Organizing for America, the political arm of the Obama White House.

Josh Orton, a former spokesman for Sen. Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NM)[sic - should be NV], became Obama’s deputy director of new media during the 2008 presidential campaign. After the election, he joined Journolist.

Brent Bozell has 20 questions for The Washington Post about its knowledge of and involvement with the Journolist.

I have just one question:
In which Washington, D.C. area parking garage will the entire Journolist archive be handed over to us?

  1. Hahaha! The conspiracy-revealing WaPo "press" being outed by a "deep throat" - what a turning of the tables in less than 40 years! I saw this in a book advertisement, and it seems in this case to ring true: "Not all conspiracies are a theory."

    I'm still waiting for the answer to my question:

    How can collusion like this among the press NOT be a criminal offense; does the "freedom of the press" expand to protect these conspirators from ANY accountability?

  2. for the record, Harry Reid is not from New Mexico.

  3. @motownmutt - thanks, noted the error in the original

  4. I was a career soldier in the U.S. Army Security Agency (USASA)and after 1977 in the Intelligence & Security Command (USAINSCOM) at Ft. Meade, Maryland and other assignments (1966 to 1986, ELINT, Top Secret clearance). I find it extremely hard to believe that a lowly PFC E-3 with a discipline record would be allowed access to such a vast amount of classified information and apparently unsupervised.

    Another factor pointing to an Obama Regime connection is the fact that all classified information is strictly based on a “Need To Know.” For example, when I was stationed at Ft. Meade in the ELINT section - not only did I not know what the guys next door were doing - I didn’t know what half the guys in my own office were working on. If I had developed a case of “Nosey Parker” and started asking questions about what classified projects my friends were working on, or signed out documents from the vault not related to ELINT, I would be standing tall in front of the S-2 security officer explaining why I should not be sent to Ft. Leavenworth making little rocks out of big rocks for the next twenty years.

    I believe that Manning is a Patsy for a “Mr. Big” somewhere high up on the food chain...like in the White House... maybe Comrade Obama himnself. I’ll wager that Manning was given mucho dinero for his treason and promised that if caught he’d get off.

    This affair really smells of a set-up... how much so and in how many ways we may never know. With such a large number of documents leaked, I even question how many of them are genuine. When you have the fascist Obama Regime in power, as we do, anything seems possible because the goal is to further The Agenda.
