Microsoft will give the U.S. military access to ‘all the technology we create’

Not a good idea for US military since Microsoft products are so easy to hack and, well, subject to funny quirks.

But then “Trump TV” kicked in. Steyn said, “And we should also be clear, too, Khashoggi is being presented as a sort of hero of journalism. He’s probably going to be Time magazine’s Man of the Year just because he is a dead so-called journalist.”

He continued, “But in fact, he was kind of a deep state Saudi spook who just happened to fall out with the Royal family. In a sense, it’s different sets of bad guys we’re arguing about when we’re talking about Saudi Arabia.”

Khashoggi was a U.S. resident and three of his children are US citizens. He has been a journalist for decades.

The Business Insider has a nice profile of Jamal, and since he was close to the royals during the war with Russia, there were rumors that he might be a spy, but no proof.

And even if he was, why does that make him one of the bad guys? There have been many intelligence workers who have made the move to journalism and become authors.
