The Word Rudy Didn't Use...
Posted by Ilan Goldenberg

Pakistan. 

Almost 6,000 words on the "Terrorist War on Us" and not once does he mention the place that the intelligence community considers the greatest direct terrorist threat to American security.

Perhaps he didn't mention it because: "These [NIE] assessments, which are based on incomplete or at times fragmentary information are not a fact, proof, or knowledge. Some analytical judgments are based directly on collected information; others rest on previous judgments, which serve as building blocks. In either type of judgment, we do not have “evidence” that shows something to be a fact or that definitively links two items or issues."

It's been well proved that we can't expect the "intelligence community" to actually know anything, or to tell the truth when they do.

Thank you for your sharing! I like i very much!

If you like analog-digital Chanel Replica Watches,today's review might just make your day.This is the limited-edition A Lange & Sohne Replica,model #9052.Limited to 999 pieces,this seems to be their version of the Omega X-33.Let's start out with the specifications:44mm across,50mm at the widest point,15mm thick.PVD-finished stainless steel case and bracelet.Bracelet is three-link,solid,with solid end links,fliplock,and 23mm lugs.Domed sapphire crystal with inner anti-reflective coating.Inner dive bezel,operated by a screw-down crown at ten o'clock.Tritium tubes on hours,bezel,and hands.Reverse LCD display.In an interesting twist: it also has an electronic compass.Like the X-33,the caseback is a soundboard to increase the volume of the alarm.Also like the X-33,the crown is actually a push button; rotating it has no effect.45 month battery.ISA quartz movement.Water resistant to 100m (330ft).Three time zones,countdown timer,alarm,Bvlgari Replica Watches,and my favorite: seconds-only mode.Please read on for the full review.As you can see from the profile,the Blackbird has quite a different appearance than the Luminox Blackout.It's tapered,subtle and considerably more understated.Take a close look at the bezel: it has a tapered profile that I quite like.The Audemars Piguet Replica finish is flat (non-glossy) which combines with the reverse LCD on the dial for a very stealthy look.You can also see in this picture how the lugs curve down around your wrist for a good fit.I did notice that when on bad pavement on a bicycle,the lugs dug in a bit due to the weight of the Rado Replica Watches (175g),so I wouldn't recommend this as an exercise Tissot Replica Watches.The Blackbird has some fascinating design decisions that I don't pretend to understand.For example,the inner bezel is set via the screw-down crown at ten o'clock; well and good.However,on your left wrist,it's quite tricky to operate,requiring removal.It's nice,but you probably won't use it much given that the Tag Heuer Replica Watches has a digital Swiss Rolex ETA Replica and countdown timer,anyway.The bezel does have a tritium marker,though,Baume & Mercier Replica more useful at night.Another oddity is the primary crown: as noted above,it's actually a button only,and unlike the bezel crown,it's not screwdown.I would have expected either a conventional button or a threaded crown.And lastly,there's no analog seconds hand.Seconds are displayed by a dedicated ring of segments on the outer edge of the display.It works,but I do miss the analog hand.Here you can see the sounding board caseback design,very similar to the X-33.
