Christiane Amanpour is not just a journalist. She is married to a Dem.
Christiane Amanpour is married to James Rubin, a Clinton appointee to the State Department. Rubin was the chief foreign policy spokesman for General Wesley Clark's presidential campaign, then after the primaries he worked as John Kerry's senior advisor for national security affairs.

2. So if you're a journalist and receive calls from foreign sources ...
... then to Bush, you're "talking to Al Qaeda."

They spied on the UN, for God's sake! Why wouldn't they spy on the Kerry campaign and journalists?

12. I believe that they are still together, but
I'm absolutely certain that they were still married during the campaign season, when Rubin was working for Clark and then Kerry.

8. Worse than that. She was John John's roommate.
I'm not kidding. She and Jamie Rubin shared an apt. with John John Kennedy before they were married.

No wonder BushCo is bugging her phone.

9. Christiane is very busy with CNN International.
Edited on Wed Jan-04-06 05:17 PM by Cleita
She does many stories for them, which CNN America won't air most of the time. I wonder why? When I used to get CNN International, she was very high profile. Now none of the cable or satellite channels carry it anymore.

10. The point being
If they were taping her home phone prior to the 2004 election, chances are they caught some of Rubin's calls too...

11. There are more shoes dropping around here
than a centipede wearing loafers. I'm going to have to get a cheap secretary just to keep up.
