    He held the power with that particular journalist.

        outing this guy?  

        If he testifies, his name will be made public then.

        •  His story is important to solving these crimes. (0+ / 0-)

          Yet, his story took over a week to come out.  His identity is kept secret.

            isn't the central most important piece of the story.  The stuff that is important is coming out.

            And, it took ONLY a little over a week to come out.  All of this just went down one week ago today, and yet, here the story is.

            Instead of lamenting the delay, try marveling at how quickly this was resolved and how quickly the story is coming together in a very credible fashion. It's completely understandable that someone in Danny's position would not want his identity revealed.

            Are you really so obtuse and insensitive not to get this, or is your belligerence just purposeful posturing?

              investigating Black Hat after 2 months and he flew to Russia even though he was on a no fly list due to his name being misspelled?

              •  How is this even remotely connected (0+ / 0-)

                to the question of maintaining the the car jacking victim's anonymity?

                  marveling at how quickly this was resolved and how quickly the story is coming together in a very credible fashion.
                  and I was pointing out that the way the FBI bungled the investigation of black hat prior to the crime was not exactly marvelous.

                  But, you clearly forgot your part of the conversation and were confused.

                  Do you feel good about saying things like this?:

                  Are you really so obtuse and insensitive not to get this, or is your belligerence just purposeful posturing?
                  This comment was unkind to your son:
                  As I sometimes have to coach my teen-aged son when he's having difficulty concentrating, "focus on the topic here, baby, that will help you get through to the end."
                  I hope you don't say things like that to him, because it could hurt his self esteem.  I also hope that he doesn't read your post.  It's not flattering to you or your son.
