An Excerpt From John Heilemann and Mark Halperin's 'Game Change: One early evening in February 2006, John Edwards, the former North Carolina senator then gearing up to launch his second presidential campaign, was hanging out in the bar of the Regency Hotel on Park Avenue with one of his donors and his young traveling aide, Josh Brumberger. A woman sitting at a nearby table with some friends walked over and introduced herself. “My friends insist you’re John Edwards,” Rielle Hunter said. “I tell them no way—you’re way too handsome.” “No, ma’am.

Racisme, adultère: les poubelles de la campagne américaine 2008 Lire un livre sur une campagne électorale une fois qu’elle est terminée, c’est souvent aussi intéressant que de se plonger dans un Lonely Planet une fois rentré de voyage. Mais Game Change, consacré aux tueries politiques qui ont précédé l’élection de Barack Obama en 2008, fait saliver qui aime les feuilletons politiques. Résumé. Des bonnes feuilles et des extraits du livre de Mark Halperin (d’ABC News, auteur du blog The Page) et John Heilemann (de New York Magazine) provoquent déjà des remous aux Etats-Unis.

The inevitable grumbling and grunting about the use of unattributed quotations in Game Change, the engrossing new campaign book by John Heilemann and Mark Halperin, has been accompanied by a more or less grudging general admission that nobody cited in these pages has so far complained of being misrepresented. To this suggestive point I would add, from comparatively limited experience, that where the authors discuss anything that I know about, they have it right. In fact, what they say is often less sensational than what they might have said. Christopher Hitchens (1949-2011) was a columnist for Vanity Fair and the author, most recently, of Arguably, a collection of essays. Surely this is particularly true of the most notorious rapid-response operation in modern political history: the infamous Clinton team and its eager outriders and propagandists. Game Change provides more evidence of the Clintons' shocking beh Game Change provides more evidence of the Clintons' shocking beh

No living being in Italy remained untouched by the war. Giu, a young mule who worked in the munitions train of an artillery regiment, sensed many changes on 22 June 1941, even though he did not, of course, know that the Führer had persuaded the Duce to declare war on the Soviet Union. People would have been astonished how many things the mule noticed that day: music everywhere, the radio blaring away without a break, the stable doors left wide open, crowds of women and children by the barracks, flags fluttering above the barracks, the smell of wine coming from people who did not usually smell of wine, the trembling hands of his driver, Niccolo, when he came to Giu’s stall, led him outside and put on his breastband… Niccolo did not like Giu; he always put him on the left, to make it easier to whip him with his right hand.

After Life and Fate: Vasily Grossman’s last stories Several of Grossman’s last stories can be read as a response to the work of Andrey Platonov, the one writer among his contemporaries whom Grossman admired wholeheartedly. Platonov was six years older than Grossman, but Grossman was the more established figure and there was at least one occasion when he succeded in being of real help to Platonov; in 1942 he asked David Ortenberg, the chief editor of Red Star, to take Platonov under his protection, saying that ‘this good writer’ was ‘defenceless’ and ‘without any settled position’. Ortenberg duly took Platonov on as a war correspondent. Later Grossman invited Platonov to collaborate on The Black Book; at some point in 1945 Platonov was given responsibility for all the material relating to the Minsk ghetto.[i] During Platonov’s final illness, Grossman visited him almost daily, and he gave one of the main speeches at Platonov’s funeral.

CIA’s Lost Magic Manual Resurfaces | Danger Room At the height of the Cold War, the Central Intelligence Agency paid $3,000 to renowned magician John Mulholland to write a manual on misdirection, concealment, and stagecraft. All known copies of the document — and a related paper, on conveying hidden signals — were believed to be destroyed in 1973. But recently, the manuals resurfaced, and have now been published as “The Official CIA Manual of Trickery and Deception.” Topics include working a clandestine partner, slipping a pill into the drink of the unsuspecting, and “surreptitious removal of objects by women.” This wasn’t the first time a magician worked for a western government. Harry Houdini snooped on the German and the Russian militiaries for Scotland Yard. CIA’s Lost Magic Manual Resurfaces | Danger Room

When the CIA tried its hand at magic When the CIA tried its hand at magic What goes on in the shadows? First, consider what’s happening in the foreground. “The instant the performer sees the spectator take a cigarette, cigar, or pipe, he takes the packet of matches from his pocket, tears off one match, and holds packet and match ready to ignite the match,” the magician John Mulholland wrote in a manual in the 1950s. “He does these things openly because what he does can only be looked upon as a friendly and courteous gesture.” Mulholland’s instructions were written not for stage magicians, but for the covert operatives of the CIA.

The Alpha Strategy, de John Pugsley
chroniques de la guerre economique chroniques de la guerre economique CHRONIQUES DE LA GUERRE ECONOMIQUE collection "NO PRESENT" Chroniques de la guerre économique est un livre de propagande destiné à accélérer la prise de conscience de la fracture générationnelle existant entre les baby-boomers et leurs enfants. Concis, direct et sans fioritures, ce livre vise à être compris par tout le monde, il se présente donc sous la forme facilement accessible de bandes dessinées de guerre détournées. Le grand mérite de cet ouvrage est de parvenir à exposer de manière incontournable les bases d'une problématique centrale de nos sociétés, pour l'instant étonnamment taboue.

La Grande Terreur - La vie des idées Recensé : Nicolas Werth, L’Ivrogne et la Marchande de fleurs. Autopsie d’un meurtre de masse, 1937-1938, Paris, Tallandier, 2009. La Grande Terreur est le plus grand massacre d’État jamais perpétré en Europe en temps de paix. Étroitement bornée dans le temps – seize longs mois, d’août 1937 à novembre 1938 –, elle s’interrompt comme elle a commencé : par un ordre secret élaboré par Staline et ses plus proches collaborateurs, dont le but explicite est de « déraciner » et d’anéantir les « ennemis » du pouvoir soviétique. En un peu plus d’un an, un million et demi de personnes sont arrêtées, 750 000 d’entre elles sont exécutées : un citoyen soviétique sur cent est incarcéré, un sur deux cents mis à mort.

Le guide du parfait terroriste paraît en France, expurgé de ses passages les plus violents. Une démarche pédagogique, selon l’éditeur. Image extraite d’une vidéo d’Abou Moussab al-Zarkaoui, alors chef d’Al Qaeda en Irak, diffusée en 2006 (Reuters) Un éditeur belge publie pour la première fois en français le parfait vademecum de l’apprenti terroriste. Découvert en 2000 au domicile britannique d’un membre présumé d’Al-Qaeda, ce texte, rédigé dans les années 90, explique en dix-huit leçons pourquoi et comment il faut détruire le monde « athée » et ses habitants. André Versaille, l’éditeur en question, justifie cette publication par la nécessité de connaître ce que l’on combat. Assassinat, torture... : fallait-il publier le "Manuel" d'Al Qae
