    diarist continually pushes in her negativity toward the dept of justice.

    if it weren't for her determination to "discredit" the DOJ and anything government, no one would ever make such an assumption as "whistleblower".

    i believe the judge who dismissed her lawsuit against the DOJ summed it up best when he wrote in his opinion that her attempt to sue the DOJ was "punative" and an attempt to seek vindication for her own actions when she turned over sealed court documents to isikoff.

    Radack has not alleged anywhere in the record that DOJ is likely to injure her in the future—or even suggested that this is a possibility. Rather, the request for an injunction appears to have a punitive animus or be based on a generalized desire for vindication.

    See Pl.’s Opp’n at 20 (“a declaration and injunction would redress Ms. Radack’s injury by labeling the Department’s action as what it really was—retaliation.”).

    [p.8]

    i've been challenged by some who consider my comments  a "personal attack" on the diarist - it isn't.  my criticisms are of her distortion of facts and is actually in accordance with the standards and principles of journalism i learned in the 80s having the opportunity to be in the newsroom at cbs.

    in an attempt to bring balance to the one-sided positions she constantly pushes on this site and other place, i have been researching the background of ms radack and am disturbed by the constant improper conclusions she reached (both while working at the doj and here on this site).

    ONLY when full disclosure of FACTS are given is it possible to make informed decisions and reach reasonable conclusions.  

    as for this diarist (who is a public figure with an agenda and, thusly, her motives SHOULD be questioned) i hate seeing this site being manipulated to push her own agenda.  it serves no one when we waste time supporting, defending, arguing against false and manufactured issues.
