Well, in today's releases from the Wikileaks, Stratfor emails Fred Burton was asked by their senior analyst Reva Bhalla if she could go to a US Chamber of Commerce get together that was attended by Governor Amr Al-Dabbagh, Chairman, Saudi
Arabia General Investment Authority (SAGIA), to which Burton replied with the very politically incorrect answer of, "yes, I ain't going. I hate towel heads"

Source.

While it's well known people talk candidly in conversations they don't expect the public to hear, I wonder what some of the Arab people the company deals with will think about this alleged email. (Emails are alleged because they are published by Wikileaks and could have been tampered with.)

So?He thinks like most people do.He's entitled to hate anyone he chooses,whether you or anyone thinks it's ignorant to do so.I'm sure you've said the same thing in private emails.You're starting a thread about and email that is 3 years old? Really?

I don't work for a global intelligence agency that is reliant on good relations with Arab nationals. I just thought it was worth mentioning.

I actually agree with the poster, a lot of people do talk like that. Especially people involved in politics in some way. The funny thing is that most people would never think they do.

I disagree.A lot of people think that way.Whether it's right or not is a different story.This thread was only made because he said towel heads.If he'd just said arabs it wouldn't be a big deal.And got news for ya,nothing in that email is racist.He's entitled to think what he wants.Towel heads is not racist.It's just ignorance.

Pirhanna summed it up.

It what way does it matter how old the email is?

Not following your twisted trail on that one.

Peace

Yeah some people think like that..you are proof. But he stated that most people don't think like that. I am the latter.

It's a bit like when Gordon Brown (UK Prime minister at the time) said over his microphone for all to hear, "Waht a horrible woman" (or similar) about the woman he just spoke with on some issue.

Quite the backlash, he had to apologise.

Oh but it does matter.It's a private email that's years old.How would you like YOUR private emails out there for the public to read?Me thinks you wouldn't.I'm sure there's some juicy stuff in yours too that you wouldn't want the public knowing.

The question was why does the age of the email matter..3 years or 3 days..why does that matter?

I don't like pork chops either...what is your point?

If you came across a diary and you happened to read a page written 5 years ago, let's say it mentioned they murdered your wife/husband of which the killer had never been caught... would that be acceptable to you seeing as it was 5 years ago?

Just a thing of the past, am i right?

From this post i'm going to assume you're probably a person of color.You've never encountered ME.I don't give a # what color you are.It comes down to respect with me.Respect me and I'll respect you.Simple.that's all I'm saying because I'm not going to derail the op's thread.

We live in the past..before we even process the thought..it is in the past.

Not going to play hypothetical with you.

Exactly..you are good about making assumptions. But man don't anyone dare make one about you.

You are feeling disrespected? Because you presume to know what most people think..but they certainly can't ascertain from your own words..what you are thinking?

I am not disrespecting you..but I have no respect for you.

Peace

This is extremely important this is known, because he has been so influential in investigations regarding Arabs. If he is a closet racist, nothing he does can be considered reliable. I hope this flushes his career.

Way to deflect
You know I'm right.You can assume anything you want about me.I'm thick skinned,it doesn't bother me and that's my point.I don't feel disrepected.And trust me I'm not going to lose sleep because you don't respect me.
