Ben Katcher published an interesting post just below that links my meeting tomorrow with Karen Hughes successor as Under Secretary of State for Public Diplomacy James Glassman and our “Terrorism Salon” taking place on the blog now.
I will be streaming LIVE the meeting with Jim Glassman whose skills as a policy and political entrepreneur I find impressive. The screen to watch the event will be posted tomorrow and will be live from 12:15 pm – 1:45 pm EST.
Love your comments — but stick to issues and policy. . .please.
More soon.
— Steve Clemons

    Public diplomacy–beltway-speak for psyops AKA propaganda. Instead of sponsoring someone who has impressive skills at creating fantasy, Steve should be hosting people who translate the BS for ordinary folks.
    So far my challenge made years ago to have someone clearly define US vital strategic interests in Iraq has gotten no response. Appearing to be transparent while promoting obscurity and ambiguity are the key modus operandi for the foreign policy mafia. Considering his position and his boss, I expect Glassman’s main attribute ia his ability to raise BS to new levels of eloquence.

    Thanks, Spunkmeyer, if it is the same James Glassman, I read the book; he owes me about $5,000!

    The idea of creating a PR deparment when that is essentially what every Cabinet serves as in real time, is kind of redundant.

    It’s just a typo! It was to have been called:
    Dow 36: The New Strategy for Surviving the Coming Downfall of Wall Street and the Loss of All Paper Wealth

    35000 on the Dow Glassman. If you have good snake oil for sale, he is your man.

    WigWag, I had the same thought, and researched it… it is the same
    person. It’s extremely difficult to take his judgement as seriously
    after finding out that nugget of information.

    Is it out of line to ask whether this the same James Glassman who a few years ago co-authored a book entitled “Dow 36,000: The New Strategy for Profiting From the Coming Rise in the Stock Market?”
