The Syria researcher whose Wall Street Journal op-piece was cited by Secretary of State John Kerry and Sen. John McCain during congressional hearings about the use of force has been fired from the Institute for the Study of War for lying about having a Ph.D., the group announced on Wednesday.

“The Institute for the Study of War has learned and confirmed that, contrary to her representations, Ms. Elizabeth O’Bagy does not in fact have a Ph.D. degree from Georgetown University,” the institute said in a statement.“ISW has accordingly terminated Ms. O’Bagy’s employment, effective immediately.”

O’Bagy’s Aug. 30 op-ed piece for the Journal,“On the Front Lines of Syria’s Civil War,” was cited by both Kerry and McCain last week. McCain read from the piece last Tuesday to Kerry, calling it “an important op-ed by Dr. Elizabeth O’Bagy.” The next day, Kerry also brought up the piece before a House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing and described it as a “very interesting article” and recommended that members read it.

so as I understand it, they weren't denied a permit because of their message, only because they were too stupid to request the permit in time.

In order to have a rally, especially one of 2 million people, the local authorities have to take measures to ensure the safety of the public. something that large would probably take months to prepare for.

or would you rather risk the safety of millions of people.

good try on trying to make something out of nothing though

"Organizers tried to get a last-minute permit to close some intersections near monuments and on Capitol Hill in D.C., but the National Park Service denied that request. "

Liberals promise not to show any Sept. 11 videos today to avoid any potential patriotism that might grow from it.

There was no admission and no agreement to turn such weapons, if any, over to United Nations control.

And now Assad has a green light to step up the war, knowing that anything is acceptable except chemical weapons.

don't you think Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld and the rest of Billy Kristol's idiotic cabal, PNAC, knew Saddam didn't have any WMD's? They knew that since 1998, but needed the right buffoon to sell it to the American Public so that Halliburton and the military industrial complex could rake in record profits and have access to Iraq's vast oil fields.

funny thing is, they never got the oil and their whole theory of influencing politics in the Middle East by stationing a large U.S. military force in a puppet state, Iraq, failed miserably. Iran was the big winner in their fiasco.

<quoted text>"Today - after 11 days in September -- President Obama secured his place in history once again.
This is "peace through strength". This is Smart Power. On the eve of the 12th Anniversary of 9/11, President Obama has demonstrated that the lessons of the past wars have been learned.
The President's threat of war; his commitment to striking back at Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has brought the Syrian and the Russian presidents to the negotiating table. Al-Assad has now admitted that he has chemical weapons and he has agreed to never use them again. Mind you, no missiles have been fired -- and yet this is the solution we sought.
We have won.
More, this was a bipartisan effort for peace.
Forget the Tea Party fanatics. They would burn their own house down if they could.
But the people who are serious about governing worked together to bring about this peaceful solution. Props should go to Speaker John Boehner and Senator John McCain -- both put their country ahead of their own short-term political lives. They took the heat; they joined the president in condemning chemical weapons -- and they all brought about a resolution to this crisis."
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/brian-keane/lad...
So, if American bi-partisanship and international cooperation can work to get a military dictator to surrender his chemical weapons to international United Nations control, then why is it so hard for Republicans to admit working with President Obama on immigration reform, making Obamacare better, jobs creation, and climate change at home is much easier then causing crises over the national debt, whining about U S Defense cuts that even the Pentagon approves of in a world where the U S is no longer at war in Iraq or Afghanistan,?
There you are, mini me. I was getting worried. Btw, I'm glad the tea party bothers you ows trash so much.

<quoted text> The New York wealthiest 1% are not going to be leaving their vast riches made on Wall Street just because a new Mayor raises their taxes a few percentage points to pay for city services that the rich enjoy most of all like good mass transit, better schools and universities, museums and theater , city clean water and sanitation , maintenance of the harbor for their million-dollar yachts can safely cruise up the Hudson, etc. etc....
The wealthiest 0.01% will probably stay. The rest in the top few percent may decide to move nearby, but out of the city.

Businesses will move in a second if the tax burden becomes too high.

Just check out how many Fortune 500 companies were headquartered in NYC 50 years ago versus the number now.

They are being sold to foreign investors. Your own link provided that information. Dumbass liberals don't mind if most homes are owned by foreign investors.

The bikers were denied a permit because the fools in Washington had already granted a permit for Muslim dogs to demonstrate on 9-11.
