13. I MISSED THIS: Greenwald on MSNBC this month smeared Malcolm Nance!

"[Nances’] background is quite sketchy but [he] is presented by the cable network (and now by NBC News) as an “intelligence expert” and former intelligence officer for the U.S. Navy."

“Sketchy” background? Is Greenwald implying that Nance isn’t an “intelligence expert” or even a “former intelligence officer” for the Navy? Greenwald can take that innuendo and shove it right in his ear. Here’s Nance’s thumbnail bio, sourced from Wikipedia:

He graduated from college with a degree in Arabic. Obviously he knows more about Arabic cultures than, say, Glenn Greenwald.
He is a decorated Naval veteran with 20 years of service, "was involved in numerous counter-terrorism, intelligence, and combat operations ... garnered expertise within the fields of intelligence and counterterrorism [and was] an instructor in wartime and peacetime Survival, Evasion, Resistance and Escape (SERE), training Navy and Marine Corps pilots and aircrew how to survive as a prisoner of war."
Nance helped create the Navy's Advanced Terrorism, Abduction and Hostage Survival course of instruction. Think he knows something about terrorism, intelligence and counter-intelligence?
But wait, there's more. After retiring honorably from the Navy in 2001, he founded a private intelligence support company, Special Readiness Services International (SRSI). He was a first responder to the American Airlines Flight 77 strike on the Pentagon on 9/11. He was "an intelligence and security contractor in Iraq, Afghanistan, the UAE and North Africa."
