Ted Cruz’s College Roommate Outs Him On Body Odor, Laziness, Creeping On Women

We’ve all done stupid things as teenagers and young adults. However, if you’re Ted Cruz and you’re running for president, you may need to pay off some people to keep them quiet.

‏@clmazin @Redastelz @gregorybehrendt @pattonoswalt I begged them for a different room or roommate. Begged. They didn't understand then. They do now.

Successful screen writer Craig Mazin attended Princeton and was actually roommates with good ‘ole Teddy. At their first meeting, Mazin noted Cruz was carrying a book titled Was Karl Marx a Satanist?

Another former schoolmate, Erik Leitch noted Cruz was someone who loved to argue just for the sake of arguing.

“The only point of Ted talking to you was to convince you of the rightness of his views.”

ISIS Cutting Back as U.S.-Led Coalition Strikes Degrade Group's Oil Trade

The U.S.-led coalition’s air strike campaign against the Islamic State militant group (ISIS) in Iraq and Syria is successfully damaging the group’s oil refining capabilities, forcing it to cut costs in the face of an ever-growing military operation, according to a report released on Monday.

The air campaign against the group , launched by Washington in August last year, has seen France and Britain join the bombing raids in Syria in recent months bringing the total number of coalition partners to thirteen. The strikes have “significantly degraded” ISIS’s ability to refine oil in their so-called caliphate and “to transport oil via tanker convoys,” said a new report by international defense consultancy IHS Janes.

“According to information gathered from Arabic-language social media, and our in country source network, efforts to target the Islamic State’s sources of revenue are paying off,” Columb Strack, senior analyst at IHS said.

Passengers removed from Spirit Airlines flight at BWI Airport

Passengers removed from Spirit Airlines flight at BWI Airport

BALTIMORE (WBFF) - A Spirit Airlines flight at BWI Airport was called back to the gate while taxiing to takeoff early Tuesday morning.

Spirit Airlines confirmed that four passengers were removed from the plane "out of an abundance of caution" after a passenger alerted a flight attendant of a person "engaged in suspicious activity on board."

The airline released the following statement around 9 a.m., and said the flight was scheduled to take off "shortly":

Spirit Airlines flight 969, scheduled for a 6am departure from Baltimore-Washington International Airport (BWI) to Chicago O'Hare international Airport (ORD), experienced a delay this morning due to law enforcement activity. While the aircraft was taxiing to the runway, a passenger alerted a flight attendant of a passenger engaged in suspicious activity on board. The flight attendant notified the captain, and out of an abundance of caution, the plane returned to the gate. Law enforcement officers removed four passengers from the plane for questioning. All passengers were deplaned for a brief time. The aircraft and luggage has been cleared by the TSA and the plane is scheduled to take off shortly. All questions regarding the investigation should be directed to the TSA and Maryland Transportation Authority Police.

Ex-CIA director: White House ignored months of warnings about 9/11

Ex-CIA director: White House ignored months of warnings about 9/11 to avoid leaving ‘paper trail’ of culpability

In an explosive revelation during an interview with Politico, the former CIA director during President George W. Bush’s administration claims his department informed White house officials over impending Al Qaeda attacks months before the president received the infamous “Bin Laden Determined to Strike in U.S.” presidential briefing.

According to ex-CIA head George Tenet and Cofer Black, then chief of the CIA’s counterterrorism center, they called an emergency meeting with National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice on July 10 of 2001 saying they had evidence that an attack on the U.S. was imminent and that it would be “spectacular.”

Beginning in May of 2001, Tenet and Black launched an initiative called “the Blue Sky paper” and pitched it to Bush’s national security team. The CIA called for a joint CIA and military campaign to end the Al Qaeda threat by “getting into the Afghan sanctuary, launching a paramilitary operation, creating a bridge with Uzbekistan.”

According to Tenet, the Bush administration said they wanted to back-burner the plan.

“And the word back,” claims Tenet, “‘was ‘we’re not quite ready to consider this. We don’t want the clock to start ticking,’” meaning they didn’t want a paper trail.

According to Black, Bush’s national security team was living in the past.

“I think they were mentally stuck back eight years . They were used to terrorists being Euro-lefties—they drink champagne by night, blow things up during the day, how bad can this be? And it was a very difficult sell to communicate the urgency to this,” he explained.
