Distractions

On Sunday (scroll down two posts), I was ticked about Secretary of State John Kerry not doing his job, and even more ticked about the State Department wonks that lied about it for him.  Spokesperson Jen Psaki came out swinging, saying that reports of Kerry being on his boat were 'completely inaccurate'.


Now, a story that broke here in the Dallas area, is gaining some traction, and has earned itself a Jen Psaki denial.  The last weekend of June, a law firm in Dallas was burglarized.  The thieves were caught on security camera, entering and exiting the building in broad daylight.  They ignored all other suites in the building, even the one across the hall that was unlocked.  The thieves didn't take a silver coin, or bars of silver, that were in plain sight.  All they took were the firm's three computers.

What makes this interesting?  The small law firm is representing a State Department whistleblower:

The firm Schulman & Mathias represents Aurelia Fedenisn, a former investigator at the State Department’s Office of the Inspector General. In recent weeks, she raised a slew of explosive allegations against the department and its contractors ranging from illicit drug use, soliciting sexual favors from minors and prostitutesand sexual harassment.
It’s a crazy, strange and suspicious situation,” attorney Cary Schulman told The Cable. “It’s clear to me that it was somebody looking for information and not money. My most high-profile case right now is the Aurelia Fedenisn case, and I can’t think of any other case where someone would go to these great lengths to get our information.”
You can watch the video report here.

And Jen Psaki says:
“Any allegation that the Department of State authorized someone to break into Mr. Schulman’s law firm is false and baseless,” spokeswoman Jen Psaki said.
I am not wishing ill will on anyone, but I will say that I hope, for the sake of my country and my blood pressure, that Teresa Heinz-Kerry is truly sick and was hospitalized for something other than a convenient PR distraction.
