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.

Al-Badawi number 4? Considering we are not sure where he is, (I'm not buying the Yemeni line that they only released him for a few days to visit his family), really number three would have been better. J

Sing the below to the tune of Neil Sedaka's "Calendar Girl:

I love, I love, I love my terrorist girl
Yeah, sweet terrorist girl
I love, I love, I love my terrorist girl
Each and every day of the year

(January) Start the year off with a boom
(February) We’re holed up in a Beirut room
(March) Your AK jams, you need to clean
(April) You’re on a website as Al Qaeda’s queen
Yeah, yeah, my heart's in a whirl
I love, I love, I love my little terrorist girl
Every day (every day), every day (every day) of the year!
(Every day of the year)
