Farewell Friends

I am a career Foreign Service Officer serving in Iraq since September of last year. I love to blog and I have enjoyed interaction with both left and right. But I have to give it up as my professional life is coming to overlap too much with my blogging life. As an American citizen, I have a right to free speech, which includes blogging. In my professional capacity, however, I need to be careful about such activities. I initially started blogging as a way to understand the medium, but I came to like it too much. As I think all of you would agree, blogging is a sort of addiction. I have tried to give up before. This time I will succeed.

During the last four years, I believe I have managed to maintain a bright line between my blogging and profession. But as I advance in my career, it becomes harder NOT to write about things from my professional life and sooner or later I will slip up and include something inappropriate. Clearly what is appropriate for a lower level guy may be inappropriate at a higher level. Rather than risk this, I think it is better for me to avoid this sort of political blog altogether.

Someday I will retire. If blogging is still around at that time, I hope to be involved again. Until that time, I will have to limit my hobbies to forestry. I truly enjoy writing and blogging on this venue has given me the opportunity to test ideas and see how people react. As most of you could tell, I have at times provoked strong reactions to test how strongly an idea was held.

I will miss the interaction with all … most of you. Your comments have sharpened my abilities and I thank you for that. I feel like I am leaving a group of friends. It is with great sadness that I figuratively hang up my blogging computer, but I cannot let it interfere with my other duty. I am under no pressure to take this decision and have decided completely on my own.

So this is the end. I will check back if anybody wants to leave comments, but after this thread goes stale, I will just have to fade away.

BTW – My experiences in Iraq have convinced me that we are achieving success there. This will be my parting shot. I know some of you consider this a partisan statement. If it is, it is the last one I will make to you, but I see it as good news for all Americans and I am very proud of the very small part I played in achieving it. A lot of people did their small parts – and some made great sacrifices – to give this opportunity to our country and pull off a result that many thought impossible. When the passion of this year’s election fades into memory, we will still be Americans. I urgently request of all Americans that we do not let partisan bickering prevent us from finishing the job and achieving what could only be called victory.

Thank you

Jack

Jack -

In my experience on forums, when someone leaves, his opponents tend to ridicule him for running away.

You, however, are leaving for the right reasons and in the most professional way. I think we can all see why you have been able to advance.

Well done, sir, and I hope to cross paths and literary swords with you once again in the future.

May you find fair winds and following seas -

Glenn Contrarian

P.S. - I’m more than a little jealous - the State Department is one of the places where I had once hoped to work, due to my curiosity of and familiarity with so many cultures, and my knowledge of world history. But the life of an FSO is hard on a family, and I must of course put them before my own desires. Again, I wish you the very best.

Best to you, now and in the future. I do hope (yes, even me) that things work out in Iraq as you seem to think they are and will continue to do so. If so, I firmly believe it will be because of you and those like you.

Semper Fi!!

You are right about that last statement being partisan. You still naively believe that an honorable success is possible in a dishonorable endeavour. How in the world did you get into the foreign service?

I, too, will miss your narcissistic, arrogant words of condescension.

Jack,

I sure will miss you here, but I will expect an occasional e-mail.
I do admire you for your choices and for the fact that you have been one of the few here over the years that have been completely consistent, yet on the rare occasion, have been honest enough to admit it if you made a statement of “fact” that was incorrect.

Keep your head down, and good luck.

You are truly the heart and soul of the right column, and, in many ways, this blog. You were writing at times no one else was in this column, and I am sure you are deservedly proud of your posts. I’ll miss you.

Take care, be safe, and I wish you the best.

Good luck Jack. It has indeed been a pleasure. I feel I have learned much from you and fear my learning curve will go down in your absence. I have not always agreed with you, but will admit that yourself and only a few other people here have been most capable of invoking in me a reasoned thought process. For that I am grateful. The red column will suffer at your loss. As you say this is an addiction of sorts and your writings have been a large part of that addiction for me. I am looking forward to the day you are able to return. Later dude.

Comment #258377

If this is the last chance I’ll have to be perfectly honest with you Jack, then allow me to just say three things:

1. This sounds like a load of BS to me. If you are truly worried about saying something you shouldn’t, then why not write an article now and then, and wait several days before posting them? That way you’d have a chance to read what you write over a few times before anything appears, and you wouldn’t be revealing anything rashly, inappropriately, or in an ill advised manner.

2. Could it be that it is becoming harder and harder to try to defend what is, and what has always been, a clearly unnecessary war perpetrated on lies? And because that’s so difficult, this is why you’ve chosen to quit being a contributor here?

3. If you truly consider the people you interact with here your friends, then why on earth would you wish to leave off communicating in such a final and complete way? That seems very, very strange to me.

Maybe you’ll choose not to reply to these comments, but I just thought I’d throw them out there anyway.

Btw, I truly wish I could thank you for your service as so many others here have, but since it is people on the right exactly like yourself who seem to want to maintain an indefinite and perhaps permanent presence in Iraq, and at the enormous and painful expense of our troops and our entire nation, as well as that of Iraq and the Iraqi people, I’m afraid I simply can’t.

You’ll have to forgive me for being as frank and honest as I’ve always tried to be with you here.

Thank you

Jack

Jack,

Good Luck, this is one of the reasons I have always used an assumed name for my political writings, as did many of the people involved in the Federalist and Anti-Federalist papers a little while back. Ideas should be expressed and evaluated on their own merits, not on who is making them and while no one should be treated differently for their views, most often in this day and age that is exactly the case.

Unfortunately you have concerns that extend beyond that, I no longer have access to information that shouldn’t be made public, at least when it comes to politics, and don’t have that fear at this time. If you feel that it is too burdensome to walk that line then you are making the right decision for you.

Jack…the only reason I have this website bookmarked was an article by you that I just randomly fell upon. A big thing about you is that you’re always positive. I agree with you on just about everything (not the gas tax though).

Comment #258406

Thanks to all.

Let me clarify. I am mostly worried about my OWN failings. I don’t want to borrow authority from my position. Up until now, I have been posting completely anonymously, but I see that slipping – through my fault. I cannot let that happen and that is why I remove the temptation before I fall into it.

John T

Thanks.

Glen

Yes. You know how much I enjoy fighting about these things.

FS is indeed fun. I have been doing it for more than 20 years and I continue to be amazed at the opportunities it gives. My service in Iraq has been very rewarding and I never regret volunteering for it. I don’t think it is a contradiction to say that I was excited to come; I am excited to be here and I will be excited to leave.

Womanmarine

Thanks. I know we both want what is best for our country. We may take different paths, but arrive at the same goal. In a pluralistic society such as ours, we not only tolerate a variety of viewpoints, we count on them to interact and create something better than the sum of the parts.

I have been with the Marines for months now. Great guys. I have even learned some of their language, which I will have to give up when I get back home.

Donna

Thanks.

Marysdude

I do indeed believe that an honorable result is possible. I am sorry that you consider that such a partisan statement. Evidently many of your fellow liberals do not see it that way and I do not either.

Re the FS – I did well on the written test and passed the orals. That is how everybody gets in. It is open to all Americans citizens over 20 years old.

Kctim

Thanks.

J2t2

Thanks

Rocky

Yeah, we can keep in touch. The other blog is not political (you notice I never once mention a politician or political party) and I will keep that up.

Max

I would be a corporate manager, but they won’t let me. Actually, I think I am were I belong. I do what I like to do and what I am reasonably good at doing. That’s all you can ask for.

Janedoe

Tolerance of disagreements and alternative viewpoints is what makes American great. The paradox is that we MUST all believe we are right and fight hard for our point of view, while simultaneously KNOWING that we are wrong at least in some details and understanding that we need the alternative viewpoints to complete our own.

Jim M

I worked for Ronald Reagan, Bush I, Bill Clinton and Bush II, all with the same eagerness and enthusiasm. Whoever gets elected in November will be my president and I will support his policies to the extent of my abilities, even if I disagree as an American citizen.

Goog

Thanks. My statements are actually not off kilter. The rest of the world is.

Ohrealy

Actually, I specifically stayed away from some of those subjects, as you noticed.

RickIl

Thanks.

Mike

Thanks.

Edge

Thanks

VV

I don’t trust MYSELF not to let my political view and my profession duties leak into each other. I am not worried very much re revealing information. I have become very proficient at not doing that.

I do indeed feel sad about leaving this “community”, but I have had doubts about whether I should blog on a partisan site or not for a long time. I have come to realize that some things I considered non-partisan are now being put into the partisan area.

I don’t know how to convince you that nobody wants to maintain a permanent occupation of Iraq. This is especially true of the people serving here. My assignment has been to prepare to get us out as much as possible. We just want to leave something that won’t fall apart and create a bigger danger in the future. Maybe all of us here are just dupes, but I don’t know anybody who isn’t working toward that and believes that is the goal.

Rhinhold

As usual, you figured it out well. I want to have my arguments evaluated only for what they are w/o reference to other who is saying them. I felt that border was slipping, sometime through my own fault.

Andy

Thanks

Judelite

Thanks. All things must end and I am content to be leaving when someone still wants me to stay.

Marysdude

I don’t know what you mean. I took a written test and got a good score. Then I took an oral test and passed. As far as I knew then and as far as I know now, the tests are immune from influence. In any case, back when I took the test, I had no influence and they knew nothing about me. All I had was a degree from a State university and a lot of student debt.

I didn’t know much about the process. I think if I knew then what I know now, I would have been afraid to try. It is hard to pass. Today people study for the test and even take courses. My father told me not to bother. He said poor kids never pass these things. He was wrong. I remember what he said and consider how it could have been a self-fulfilling prophecy. I also think it is great that our country clearly opens its diplomatic service to everybody. When I meet colleages from many other countries, they represent their nations rich and powerful families. We represent America.

Jack - I will miss your posts as they challenge my beliefs and preconceptions. Honest political debate is the most American activity there is. At its best it is a peaceful, reasoned, and informative way to deal with the problems that face us all. I don’t think liberals have all the answers nor do conservatives only through this kind of discourse can we achieve what is best for all of us as Americans.

I offer up a short political prayer:
“Grant us the courage of our convictions when we are right and the flexibility to accept other views when we are wrong and most importantly, the wisdom to know the difference.”

Farewell and be safe,
Tom

Jack-
I can understand how things can get, given your position. When you get some time and distance away from the Bush Administration, you will, like so many from the Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, Reagan, Bush 41, and Clinton administrations be able to look at things from a perspective outside the organization.

When you’re in the thick of things, it’s much harder to see the overall picture, given your investment of effort in your part of it.

So hopefully, one day you can see that there was more going on with the rest of us than met the eye, and you’ll understand we were never really enemies at all.

So Jack, what about Blackwater in Iraq? Are they really going to get a better deal next year if BHO is elected? You shouldn’t have put your picture on this site. Big Brother is watching, listening, and following you, but those are only our tax dollars. We could probably get some former KGB guys to work cheaper.

For as an American Layman Citizen I have enjoyed are one on one debates and hope someday that we can again speak on the sibject of building a Better World. However, seeing and understanding the troubled times that we live in. Just remember, that America is Red, White, and Blue for Better or Worse. So go help the Children of the 21st Century go build the Best @@@@ing World that their Minds can think of.

I gave up commenting on Watchblog about 2 years ago, when the discourse got too poisonous for my tastes. I reconnected once very briefly, but a certain someone immediately jumped on an innocuous comment of mine, proving the poison had not subsided.

I read sometimes, but have chosen not to write. Yet your absence will be a true loss. You’ve maintained your facts and your character in virtually every post and I have such great respect for your logic and thought process that I’ve cited you in conversation often.

You’ve lived your words and backed them with action far more than most in here (certainly me) and you have my utmost respect.

I hope life continues well for you and I wish only the best in all your endeavors.

Jack: I’d like to add to the comment provided by pl8spinner. I too have read Watchblog for several years, and commented infrequently. Your commentary was one of the reasons I bothered to visit the site, because you maintained the ability to debate difficult subjects without resorting to the character assassination and condecending comments that many seem to enjoy. I too have evolved in my political leanings (from George McGovern to generally voting on the right or libertarian currently), and see both sides of the issues generally. My sense of your posts and commentary was that you had reasons for your beliefs and were open to having your position changed. Good luck in your endeavors and a long future “retirement” with your tree farm.

I do take that as a compliment. I like it when someone figures out what I said only an hour or so after I said it and sometimes I don’t mind if they don’t get it at all. It is sort of like telling a joke and not caring if anyone understands the punch line. My wife complains about that trait, but it has been useful to me.

I will miss your dialogue, Jack. You often twisted facts, rationalized the meaning of world events, and cherry picked little bits of truth out of positions that were 90% falsehoods. But, at least you put yourself out there in numerous blogs. Defending the indefensible takes more courage than I have and you deserve credit for that. I only have the wherewithal to take an occasional potshot at other’s opinions so I truly do admire your willingness to put your views out there.
The Conservative Watchblog Stage is now empty. I think that is telling. True conservatives have got to be asking themselves many questions right now: what have we done? What do we stand for? Where are we going? We have principles and platitudes to express those principles but what do they really mean? I would hope that conservatives would look past the mantras and platitudes and approach the issues with a more intellectual process than what has occurred over the last couple of generations.
I do know that the next time I read, for example, suggestions/insinuations/hints that Obama is, somehow, not a true American, I think I will throw up. This has pretty much been the level of intellectual discussion on Watchblog that we somehow have to grow away and up from.

Although I have not always agreed with your opinions, I have always respected your willingness to take unpopular stances and defend your ideals. I especially want to thank you for your willingness to defend not only the decision of invading Iraq, but to defend and support the mission and integrity of those that are achieving it.

Sir, coming from a disabled vet that has a son that upon returning from Iraq had decided to leave the USAR to join the “Regular Army”, I thank you not only for speaking your mind here, but for your service to my country. I wish that I could have served as long and honorable as you. May God bless and keep you and your family.

Although I’m a frequent reader I very rarely comment because I’m European and I feel it would be discourteous to offer my opinion on your [Watchblog’s], predominantly, domestic discourse.

Sara Palan prays that the American troops in Iraq are part of Gods plan and she is taking heat for it. Sara is more prophetic than people yet grasp. Her spiritual claim recorded on youtube represents a literal Bible prophecy revealed right here.. The Bible designates the state of Alaska in this Bible prophecy as Sara clearly states.. Gods greatest blessing must reach the utmost bound of the everlasting hills. This prophecy can be seen in Genesis chapter 49:22-26. The Rocky mountains represent the only chain of mountains on the earth which are continuous and endless. Early explorers could never find the end of these prophetic everlasting hills discovered in America. The Bible’s “utmost bounds” of the rockies would not describe south America nor central America, only the western United States can pinpoint North America where the the Rockies clearly lead upwards toward the utmost bounds of the Rockies which pinpoint the Alaska uttermost bounds exactly. The prophet Jacob promised the tribe of Joseph the greatest blessings for the end of days as located exactly at this spot. These Biblical Blessings were promises given above all the tribes of Israel. See Genesis 49:1 and Genesis 49:22. These are real prophecies in the Bible about Alaska. Sara openly describes the Alaska prophecy and makes it very clear why her people in the west must prepare their hearts for the blessings God has promised them! Both 9/11 and the Iraq war are biblical events which confirm to us why Sara feels so strongly about our troops in Iraq. This is an overview of my book dedicated to Sara Palins mission titled “Bible prophecies of 9-11″ This is not just another good theory, but an actual Bible prophecy which clearly reveals the Iraq war and also 9/11. This prophecy is plainly written into the Bible. You will literally see the specific details of 9/11 within your own Bible! You will learn why Sara prays for Alaska to bless our nation! This election represents a biliclal moment in time. Critics are now working hard to prove that this discovery is false and have failed to uncover it as another hoax. We invite you to investigate this matter and follow along with your Bible and witness it for yourself. I am currently putting together a small group of christians to assist me on a national news story. A publishing organization affiliated with Salem communications has recently published their official press release which openly declares my biblical discovery to the public. http://www.eternaltruth.net This web sight can provide enough evidence for you to investigate the validity of my claim. I recently published this discovery which opens up a chain of clues dealing with King Nebuchadnezzar’s repentance process as recorded in Daniel chapter four. This recorded event resulted in God blessing Nebuchadnezzar and his ancient land located today in Iraq. That particular blessing involved future promises of freedom in the end times through great eagle’s wings. The eagle today is certainly the symbol of the United states currently bringing this freedom to Iraq as predicted in the Bible. I am contacting people who represent different denominations who can understand and explain type and shadow prophecies.. I am confident that a common continuity of opinion by such persons can validate my discovery to media sources as a worthy news story. This requires a non denominational approach to succeed. The interest factor for the media would be common agreement upon a specific biblical interpretation coming from differing faiths who agree upon a sound interpretation concerning one of the most important issues for this coming election about Iraq. As you know religion has become a central issue for presidential candidates opening up a rare opportunity to promote the importance of God and moral issues. Sara Palan is an example to christians for the following reasons. She has learned how to distinguish good from evil on a level where she no longer fears challenging evil. She sees deeply into the hearts of the people who are hiding an evil agenda. This book teaches you how to see the world the way Sara sees it. The wicked became afraid from the very first moment Sara came upon the national scene. These people instinctively knew that Sara could see them for who they were and could not be controled by their fear. Once christians become enlightened by this book they can gain the same understanding Sara has learned through both experience and wisdom. Christ warns us about people he described as evil vipers. Few can see the depth of exactly why such persons are so dangerous as they work in darkness to destroy everything good. Sara actually fought and removed such people from power in Alaska because she fully understands the depth such evil by knowing how to unmask their vulnerabilities. Simply by having your eyes opened to see good from evil as taught within this book one can likewise be enlightened like Sara Palan. The book “Bible prophecies of 9/11″ teaches you how to see the monster which is hidden from public view freeing your mind and spirit from the destructive blindness most people cannot fully see. Through this wisdom you gain power over such influences and free your soul from being trapped by their cunning snares. Some of the top conservative sights in America currently have my video presentation posted and available for public view. You may view my video on the Rush Limbaugh’s official myspace page. You may view it on Laura Ingrams page as well as numerous other conservative sights and blogs. The Iraq war will be of major political interest during the election. This is rather timely and important. This may be a way for you and others to gain national recognition by helping us unite christian denominations during a critical election year. This is also a chance for people of faith to show our troops a united support for their mission as one christian voice. If you are interested please feel free to view our video and test my biblical claims. Please call concerning any and all questions. Looking forward to hearing from you soon. http://www.eternaltruth.net
