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.

hillary plays the women's card, Obama plays the race card, Huck plays the Jesus card and now DoD intel is playing the "individual missions" card. We are one hell of a card playing country, I'll tell you!

I don't know how many here are aware of http://www.oss.net/ , yet, or of http://www.earth-intelligence.net/ but OSS was just lapped up and if Congress really knew their A** from a hole in the ground, they don't, they'd be far more worried about what's coming down the proverbial pike in '09. The year we take the gloves off. In the meanwhile I'll just 'STRAC on back' and enjoy the dog and pony show. Brzezinsky is advising O'bama. So...hell, lets outsource the whole damned 'government' to some, say, really cool Soviet contractor like, well, you know who. Hey, how about those Lakota Sioux?
