Warm thanks to Rachel Maddow for her cogent reporting on the Bush White House/ CIA plot to “get” Cole. As she notes, I was a frequent guest on her Air America radio program in the old days and have been on her MSNBC show as well. As an interviewer, she was always well ahead of the game and her sharp questions kept me on my toes.
