About R J Hillhouse

  • Dr. Hillhouse has run Cuban rum between East and West Berlin, smuggled jewels from the Soviet Union and slipped through some of the world’s tightest borders. From Uzbekistan to Romania, she's been followed, held at gunpoint and interrogated. Foreign governments and others have pitched her for recruitment as a spy. (They failed.)

    A former professor and Fulbright fellow, Dr. Hillhouse earned her Ph.D. in political science at the University of Michigan. Her latest novel, OUTSOURCED (Forge Books) is about the turf wars between the Pentagon and the CIA and the privatization of national security.

    Dr. Hillhouse is an expert on national security outsourcing. Her controversial work has twice elicited a formal response by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence--the only times that office has ever publicly responded to the writings of a private citizen.

    She is a regular media guest and available for interviews.

Bogus is just a word.

If you go looking into certain charities like the International Christian Response, you come across a Christian news agency called Compass Direct News.

Googling Compass Direct News gets you a series of items written by Compass Direct News except for a Wikipedia article.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Compass_Direct


The people at Wikipedia warn that 1. it reads like an advertisement and 2. it is orphaned, or is not linked to much.

Looks like a plant.

Is it a coincidence that the International Christian Response sounds a lot like Christian Response International and Christian Solidarity International. Both of which were used as names by the Christian Freedom International which is fronted by Blackwater.

If it looks like it, tastes like it, smells like it , then let's investigate it a little more.

It is a plant. The wording is the same as that on their web page.

I find this a little suspicious and have been trying to let people know my suspicions in a low key manner.
