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.

Excellent! Next, please get quoted in the Telegraph, the BBC, and Al Jazeera English. The G, T, BBC and AJz are the most valid English-language world news sources available.

For example, the G used the term covert US assassination, a phrase not found in any major US news outlet.

As to image-making: there is strategic value to all this. The 10th anniversary of 9/11 is only days away, and the timing of the assassination de-winded the sails of any disaster porn party in the works. "American lost its innocence" porn party. "Stabbed in the back by our former proteges" porn party (oh wait we don't talk about blowback).

Here's a story straight out of your book:

"An Air Force civilian employee who resigned in July amid allegations he ran an illegal contractor spy ring in Afghanistan is still facing possible criminal charges, according to a new report."

Some time ago, I did need to buy a good house for my corporation but I did not have enough cash and could not buy anything. Thank heaven my dude proposed to try to get the personal loans at trustworthy creditors. So, I acted so and was satisfied with my collateral loan.
