    In the U.S. lying to the FBI is a serious crime. (I am not aware of other country that has such a stupid rule.

Ah, yes, major political actors lying to federal authorities on investigations into suspected threats to national security. Why om Earth shouldn’t that be allowed /s

tbf, no other country has a rule specifically against lying to the FBI (probably)

Yeah, I read that. MoA does some interesting geopolitical analysis, crazy domestic.

That's what I don't trust, though. I know enough about Trump, Flynn and the FBI to smell bullshit when I read it. All I know about Yemen is that the Ottomans invaded them for coffee and that the desert people from Dune are based on the Houthis.

I find the best way to view blogs of any stripe is as ranting street lunatics who offer interesting food for thought.

You now also know about Socotra Island, home of the Dragon's Blood Tree and Al Hajirah, filming location for the 1973 animated classic La Planete Sauvage.
