Elliott, what a lovely and thoughtful thing to do. Love you lots. The rest of you rock my world – thank you all so much for the overwhelming love and support. It’s been a tough last few weeks, but you can bet that my fighting spirit is still intact. And with or without the red [...]
Oh, Jane. My heart is broken. I had so hoped that a miracle would occur and a reprieve would somehow stave this day off for a while longer. John was such a wonderful, wonderful soul, and a dear friend to all who knew him. My favorite is an oldie but a good one: http://firedoglake.com/2007/02/21/wilsons-wife-wasnt-a-person-but-an-argument/ My [...]
Christy Hardin Smith commented on the diary post Hey, Did You Happen to See the Most Beautiful Girl in the World? by Jane Hamsher.
Oh, honey — am just now seeing this. Enormous hugs from our house to yours. Katie is a wonderful girl, loving and big-hearted and gently able to get her own way without being a pushy broad…just perfect, really. Call me if you need to talk. Much love from our household to yours, and all the [...]
Valerie and Joe, it is good to see you, as always. And Ted, thank you for your extraordinary work on this book. As Valerie says above, it is a fantastic primer for folks who don’t have a full background on proliferation issues — and something every conscientious member of Congress ought to be reading.
Especially with so much instability in Pakistan and elsewhere, this is too important an issue to just gloss over.
Val, I saw an interview with Dick Cheney last week during which he had a few lovely words to say about our brave men and women in intel jobs. I swore at the teevee on your behalf. Had he not opened that can of worms on you and your fellow operatives and assets, I have no doubt you’d still be working on these issues today.
I’d love thoughts from Ted, Valerie and Joe on what particulars might be most fruitful for Congressional pressure going forward. It is frustrating to see some of the old Senate lions getting no traction on nonproliferation issues at a time when this needs to be most at the fore for security concerns. Thoughts?
David — done. And for those looking for the film, you can find it at this direct link to it’s page on Netflix.
Charlene, thanks so much for being here and for this film. It was incredibly moving and powerful as a personal statement. And David, bravo for your part in making this as well. Teddy, as always, thanks for sharing your compassionate light on this subject.
Just wanted to add my voice to Teddy’s on this film: it is powerful, moving and well worth your time.

Dawn — so lovely to see you hosting. Linda and Reva, the book is a fantastic discussion of some very difficult issues. Thanks so much for delving into so much of this for all of us.
