Sleeping With Adel Al-Jubeir & Dan Senor: The Foreign Policy “Experience” of Campbell Brown v. Sarah Palin

By Debbie Schlussel
The McCain campaign canceled a scheduled CNN appearance by John McCain on the show hosted by the world’s most inane and annoying interviewer, Larry King. They did so because of a rude interview by Dale Alma Campbell Brown a/k/a Campbell Brown with McCain spokesman Tucker Bound.
The obnoxious interview–posted below–was four minutes of repeated interrupting, smirking, and faces a 2-year-old would make, all on the part of Dale Alma Campbell Brown. It focused on Brown’s contention that McCain Vice Presidential choice, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, doesn’t have foreign policy experience.
But there are a couple of inconvenient truths that struck me:
1) By serving as concubine to Saudi Ambassador Adel Al-Jubeir, Campbell Brown has a whole lot more “foreign policy experience” than Sarah Palin.
Would you want her to be Vice President?

Yup, as I’ve repeatedly noted Brown “dated” (euphemism) then-Saudi spokesman and current Saudi Ambassador Al-Jubeir, accompanied him to Saudi Arabia, and even whored out her news coverage at NBC for him. As I’ve also repeatedly noted, at the time she was covering George W. Bush and, when Saudi then-Crown Prince (now King) Abdullah visited the Bush ranch in Texas, she refused to report on the Saudi prohibition of women from the Waco Airport tarmac and air traffic control tower. She never disclosed to NBC Nightly News viewers that she was, ahem, “dating” Al-Jubeir.
Again, with this relationship, Brown has more foreign policy experience than both Palin and Obama combined. Still wouldn’t want her to be a heartbeat away from the Presidency.

Campbell Brown Has Lots of Foreign “Policy” Experience w/ Adel Al-Jubeir

2) Dale Alma Campbell Brown’s husband Dan Senor had zero foreign policy experience, and yet he was one of the two top guys running Iraq as the right-hand man and press spokesman to Paul Bremer.
Sorry, but I would rather have had Sarah Palin running things in Iraq than Senor. Senor and Bremer de-Baathified the Iraqi government, removing all Sunnis and handing the whole country over to Iran-backed Shi’ite extremists. GUH-reat job. The disasters bgan with Senor and Bremer.
But did Brown question why a guy, Dan Senor–whose sole previous experience was serving as press secretary and advisor to pro-Hezbollah/Arafat Senator Spencer Abraham and working at the Bin Laden Carlyle Group–was allowed to run Iraq at a time when it was our number one foreign policy involvement. Did Dale Alma, er . . . “Campbell,” question her hubby’s lack of foreign policy experience? Nope. And she wasn’t even sleeping with him at the time.
Running Iraq when our troops were being killed was arguably far more important than a Vice President who attends funerals and high school grand openings. And Dan Senor was never vetted. There was no Campbell Brown smirking and making faces and interrupting ad nauseam, about him.
Even with his “experience,” Senor is still clueless. For example, he recently wrote a Wall Street Journal op-ed piece praising Argentinian President Carlos Menem for being against Iran, Islamists, and terrorism. But, on the contrary, Menem accepted $5 million from Iran to cover up Hezbollah”s/Iran’s involvement in the Buenos Aires Jewish Community Center bombing and delayed for years the investigation into it. Senor is a complete ignoramus. Yet, not only was he allowed to run Iraq (and screw it up, big-time), but was considered to become White House Press Secretary.
Really, if I were the McCain people, I’d have thrown all of these things into obnoxious, pretentious Brown’s face.
And I would have asked her about her father’s experience serving time in a federal prison and what she knew and when she knew it.
This woman is a skank and needs to be put in her place, and not just by the Saudi who was bedding her.

Shut Up, Saudi Ho

Allow me translate: when left wingers blather on about “foreign policy experience” what they really mean is how much does a candidate prefer to suck up to Europeans than average Americans.

Tempus Fugit on September 3, 2008 at 5:44 pm

Man, I cannot stand Campbell Brown at all since she started “hoing” for NBC. She left her “hotness” factor as soon as she mouths off crappy and condescending putdowns on people from the right. Leave her in Saudi Arabia for life, preferably in the Yemeni quarter of the country.

Bobby's Brain on September 3, 2008 at 5:55 pm

When I played this video, the words which came to mind were arrogant, smarmy and haughty. Oh yes, and condescending as well. I thought Tucker held his ground “OK” but I wished he were tougher and had backed her down. A little more experience and he will be able to do that more effectively.
Ummmm, Debbie, How can we be certain that odios Campbell person has the opportunity of reading your fine piece? Or perhaps you’ve already seen to that…..:)

Maura on September 3, 2008 at 6:24 pm

This was a great interview because the NBC correspondent was actually asking questions viewers want answers to. And thank GOD she was interrupting him – that retarded tool was droning on and on without ever giving an honest answer. Who wants to listen to him lie incessantly for 5 minutes like George W. Bush or Rumsfeld or Bill Clinton?
And commenter Maura – you sound retarded. “When I played this video, the words which came to mind were arrogant, smarmy and haughty. Oh yes, and condescending as well.” Do you know the definitions to those words?

Walsh on September 3, 2008 at 6:56 pm

I guess Walsh is the latest Obama lackey to try to disrupt this blog. Like NB, Audacious and NP, this person uses invective, abuse and insults instead of making substantive points — none of these liberal nitwits has any substantive points. Accuse someone of lying, but please don’t ask them to back up this charge. Retarded tool…it goes on and on.
Again, for all you liberal nitwits, the SUBSTANTIVE (REMEMBER, SUBSTANTIVE) point is this; for all of his faults, McCain is pro-America. For all her inexperience, Palin is pro-America. They do ont get up and say it is America’s fault that loathesome countries like Iran and Russia do not like us. They say it is Iran’s fault, and Russia’s fault.
Obama, Biden and the rest of these lightweights say that it is the fault of the United States. Let’s act like Sarkozy and visit Syria, hat and hand, to appease these Muslim terrorists and other fanatics.
And of course the media is arragant; Debbie has written a lot recently about dumbing down. The infobabes like this odius Campbell is a good example; being arrogant in the face of uttering such drivel is a great example of how dumbing down has affected the liberal media. They all utter this drivel and I think some of them are really dumb enough to think they are saying something worthwhile. I don’t know what is worse, these nitwits, none of whom has an IQ breaking 3 digits, or the smarter ones who know they are transmitting disinformation.

to borrow another’s phrase, “Shut up and sing!”

Thinking_One on September 3, 2008 at 8:19 pm

hey Walsh, Do you know anything about anything? Have you ever read history? or do live your life vicariously in blogs? Go away son, you are out of your league.

Thinking_One on September 3, 2008 at 8:22 pm

I don’t think a Feminist albeit a “Feminst for Life” (Palin belongs to this group) as Palin is would be someone that would be great in dealing with these Muslim countries. And the fact that she thinks that she is so religious is really scary to me. Judaism and Christianity have been feminized for a long time according to some and I can’t disagree with that assesment. Certianlly Orthodox Judaism lets women do what they want for the most part. ( I see Jewish women openly marry nonjews knowing their kid will be Jewish and Orthodox Judaism looks the other way and bashes men and claim only men intermarry which is just not true) . I think it is the last thing we need. At least Obama has been bashed for his problems. Palin thinks she is religious which I think is a problem. I am leaning to STAYING HOME FOR THE ELECTION. It is funny that Huckabee was criticzed for being a liberal fiscally although he was pro life. Schlafly said that Huckabee destroyed the republican party. Palin is no different and fiscally is very likely a liberal as feminism needs BIG GOV’T. But Eagle forum gives her a free pass.
Michael Savage has been the only one speaking against this pick. (He was the one responsible for speaking against Harriet Myers while everyone else didn’t say anything and was likely the biggest reason she withdrew.) Yesterday he called for Palin to withdraw. The Republicans ignoring the message this women is pushing across is amazing to me. And suddenly the Democrats are becoming the moral party. I have never seen anything like this. What happened to family values. Just because she is pro life and pro gun we should ignore everything else. The self righteousness really concerns me.

Hi Everyone, Sarah Palin here.
Just wanted to chime in and say these are some of the stupidest comments I’ve ever seen on a blog.
From the Tempus Fugit “translation”, to Walsh’s liberal nonsense to c f’s attempt at SUBSTANTIVE points and ALL CAPITAL LETTERS to someone named the “Thinking_One” (cue glorious symphony and sunlight breaking through the clouds) and his/her (probably a her) advice to another commenter about exiting the league (I guess the one she belongs to? It’s not real clear. But, let me guess, the bowling league every Friday night, in Omaha?).
Honestly, you all make me all want to Canada. I want you all to stop commenting on blogs. And don’t support the Republicans. We don’t want you.
Also, I will be an awesome VP (ok, i’ll be as good a VP as Bush was a president; that seemed good enough for us, right? come on). Plus, I shoot moose. In the snow. Deal with it.

Sarah Palin on September 3, 2008 at 11:17 pm

It’s funny as hell watching the liberal media melt down over Sarah Palin. Read Maureen Dowd’s column for more laughs. She is beside herself with barely concealed anger. I think she realizes she could’ve had Sarah Palin’s life, too, but she ended up a lonely, smarty-pants intellectual.

Sue Denemme on September 3, 2008 at 11:18 pm
Heckuva job being a mom Sarah!

lolwut on September 3, 2008 at 11:21 pm

I guess I should have not only used caps for SUBSTANTIVE COMMENTS, but a larger type size as well. My attempt to emphasize that in order to be meaningful, comments should be substantive, obviously didn’t register to SP (sic). the only reference to my four paragraphs was a snide comment to my capitalizing it. I should have known better than to expect substantive input.

c f on September 3, 2008 at 11:46 pm

Re Adam 675’s comments, I think Savage might be beginning to lose it. He made some legitimate points about Palin’s lack of experience, but in the last few days that has been overshadowed by the liberals’ savage attack on her. Palin’s corruption from the Rezko gang? Savage’s remarks on Georgia were pathetic, let’s face it. He was right about Kosovo, but turned that into a schematic structure, and criticizing Russia would upset that structure, so he stuck to his position even though it carried him to absurdity. Huckabee did a lot more than being religious; he conspired with McCain to beat Romney in Florida for instance, not that Romney was that great, but it was an underhanded thing to do. Same with his attacks on Mormonism. Really despicable. The guy is a sneaky opportunist, who uses religion as a facade for cheap underhanded dirty tricks. Someone has to have a really unfocused mind to get from Sarah Palin to criticizing (falsely) Orthodox Jewish women.

c f on September 3, 2008 at 11:55 pm

Palin’s foreign policy experience is next to none. So is Obama’s. You have to be a real moron to complain of a VP candidate’s shortcoming when your presidential candidate has the same shortcoming.

Terror-Free Oil on September 3, 2008 at 11:59 pm

Great info Debbie on Brown, I would have never known. Now I see her with a different lens. I think McCain should not have pulled from Larry King and gone on that show tore him a new one. He is the most incompetent, uninformed and rudest host out there. Wanna a softball go to Larry? Caught with a shemale prostitute and you wanna fix your image, Larry will fix your image? Danny Bonaduce.
McCain should put people who represent them with the knowledge to answer all questions. Get someone with convictions and passion to go out and take on Campbell Brown. McCain should hire a Nancy Grace type fierce and tenacious and is up on her points and knows a little about her subjects. Amy Holmes of Cnn or Megan Kelly of Fox. This guy got mowed down.
Campbell Brown should not be your worst nightmare. Taking your ball home and saying you wont play doesnt make you look tough. Taking your ball home because of Campbell and Larry? Give me a break.

Campbell, you ignorant slut!

jj on September 4, 2008 at 12:33 am

Seriously, isn’t Campbell Brown kind of hot? And so is Debbie Schlussel, right? Is it wrong to imagine them together? OK Sorry. I digress.

TerryReed on September 4, 2008 at 12:45 am

also, lol:
On August 17, Palin was in attendence when David Brickner, the leader of Jews for Jesus, gave a guest sermon claiming that terrorism against Israel is due to the disbelief in Jesus by its Jewish population.

lolwut on September 4, 2008 at 1:39 am

‘Saudi ho’, haha. Let’s consolidate that to Sowdi

Bosch Fawstin on September 4, 2008 at 2:26 am

This is not about this story by Debbie but it is a MUST read for anyone even thinking about voting for Obama
If this doesn’t change your mind about Obama and his true motives then I really feel sorry for you

You could not be more wrong about any of that. I wonder if you know that and were just trying to be a troll.

Wow! What story! Debbie you are best! Your are the Bomb! Your blog is the best!

I wish all of you in the Conservative media and press would finally STOP calling Campbell Brown and the rest of her fellow Socialists and/or Communists by the nickname “liberals”; a nickname they all embrace. When you call them “liberals” you are helping their cause. Please help our cause by identifying them correctly by their real political agenda: SOCIALISM!
Campbell and Couric epitomize the rude, arrogant Socialist European media I used to listen to during the 5 yrs. I lived in Germany. They continually tell everyone they’re supposedly for “peace” and for “uniting the Country”, but in truth, they are the most viciously nasty, angry people in the World. For them to try to brand Sarah Palin “rude and arrogant” is like the pot calling the kettle, black.
Have you noticed how much class the Republicans have as compared to these Socialists? I deliberately did not watch their recent political convention because I knew I couldn’t stomach all their blatant lies. It’s bad enough being forced to listen to all these lying Socialist nutcases when they call into C-SPAN on all 3 of their lines, despite the fact they are supposed to call in only on the “Democrats” line. Have you noticed how partisan C-SPAN has become on their behalf on a regular basis? They let them get away with calling in on all 3 lines, all the time! Either that or they deliberately don’t answer the “Republican” line” in favor of the other 2 lines. The other day a Republican called in on the “Democrats” line and their black moderator hosting the show immediately chastized him, saying, “You are breaking the rules calling in on this line, so I’m cutting you off!” I have never once heard them do that to any of the Socialists who regularly call in on the other 2 lines! I know they are not supposed to show any bias by shaking their heads “yes” or “no” to any of the callers, but the other morning, one of their young female moderators hosting the show kept shaking her head “yes” in agreement with the Barack Obama supporters who were calling in!
I heard nothing about any Republicans trying to interrupt any of Obamas’ speeches or any of the other speeches at their Socialist convention like the anarchist Socialists and/or Communists were interrupting the Republican Convention. I believe their out-of-control, irratic behavior helps explain to the entire World the calibre of the majority of people who follow Obama as if he’s God, just as they also followed Hitler, when they thought he was God!

BJ1949 on September 5, 2008 at 4:00 am

Debbie – Your knowledge of everything your write about borders on being encyclopedic. It never ceases to amaze me how much you know about the people you write about and how well researched your posts are. I don’t always agree with you, but I come back to this blog every day because of how much “back story” you give me on the news of the day. I am not a huge McCain fan, although he convinced me last night that he really is for the individual’s right to run his own life, which is my biggest issue with Obama’s camp (I want the government OUT of my life, not “organizing” it…). Even though I don’t love McCain, the alternative is so scary, that I will work to get McCain elected. And by the way I don’t think McCain has any intention of dying, so I agree with your sentiments about what does the vice president actually do, other than open post offices.
What I’m trying to say is that I really hope the McCain campaign knows about you, knows about your blog, and that somebody from the organization comes to you to find out what you know that they don’t. If they are smart enough to ask for a little of your time (and brain power), I hope you will be willing to give it to them. My family’s liberty, freedom and financial security depend on it!!!!

lexie1 on September 5, 2008 at 11:05 am

Well, I quit watching NBC in 2001, Looks like I have not missed anything. Campbell – what a creep! Great exposition Debbie! Senor and Bremer’s combined stupidity in Iraq cost a lot of American lives.

Jimmy Bones on September 7, 2008 at 4:12 am

Somehow this article seems to be more about the unseemliness of a white woman dating an Arab guy than anything else. Would Cambell Brown have reported on women not being on the tarmac at Waco even if she wasn’t dating that guy from Saudi? Probably not, in light of the fact that there was a more significant story to report on the meeting with Bush. Why would you call her a “concubine”? Is this a way of degrading women who date the so-called “enemy”, which apparently today is anyone Arab or Muslim.
