Consumer Reports



My past with “Johnny Jihad’s” lawyer EVERY now and then events conspire to produce a perfect match, and never did a defendant and his defense attorney deserve each other more than John Walker Lindh and James Brosnahan. Lindh, a.k.a. “Johnny Jihad,” has drawn Brosnahan to defend him against the government’s charges of, well, something just this side of treason, at least for the moment.

Most people probably don’t remember that Brosnahan has been in Washington before, when he was a prosecutor for the celebrated Iran-Contra Special Prosecutor, Lawrence Walsh. I remember it better than most, because I was once called to testify by Brosnahan, and it was a memorable morning.

Brosnahan was a relatively late arrival to the Walsh team, and by the time he got there I had been told that I was no longer considered a “target” for criminal investigation. So when I was called, it was on the basis that they had found some new information about something or other, and they hoped I might be able to help them.

After discussing a bit of ancient history, Brosnahan got to the point. “Have you ever heard of a man named Bruce Rappaport?”

I had. A guy by that name had been involved in a scheme to build a gas or petroleum pipeline across Iraq, and that scheme had caused some heartburn for the former Attorney General Ed Meese. Was that the guy Brosnahan had in mind?

“Right. Also the person into whose bank account the famous $10 million dollars was misdirected by Oliver North’s secretary, Fawn Hall.”

That was news to me, and I thanked Brosnahan for the information.

“Do you know him?” Brosnahan continued.

“No,” I said.

There was then an embarrassed silence, as Brosnahan and two associates shifted around in their chairs.

“Are you sure you don’t know him?”

“Believe me,” I said, “Swiss millionaires are not my social set.”

More silence and shifting.

“Well, you know, he’s supposed to be a big Zionist.”

Which was the whole point. I’m Jewish, he’s a big Zionist, so we must get together for conspiracy meetings from time to time, right?


“So we thought you might know him.”

That was pretty much the end of it. And as we walked back to our offices I asked my lawyer what she thought of that, and she said that if she hadn’t actually been there she would never have believed it.

Which is why I think Johnny Jihad has the perfect lawyer. They’ve got a lot in common.

  • Yet Another Unlicensed Contractor Debacle 2017/07/10
    This story is late in publishing because the AOC (ahem, the judicial council) spent months drawing out our requests for information on a simple inquiry they should have been able to deliver on the same day it was received because what scant information they did provide was readily available to them. But they dragged out […]
  • Another Clifford Ham boondoggle in San Diego 2017/04/19
    More false promises of tunnels reaching out from jails to courthouses. Don’t say we didn’t tell you so because we’ve stated many times that ALL tunnel promises are false promises made to win local support of the projects and penciled out upon approval. What we find most disturbing is that Clifford Ham has a track […]
  • Writing our obit is a bit premature… 2017/04/06
    Welcome to 2017! Yeah, we know, a bit of time has passed since we’ve been hyperactive here. We’ve been a bit busy frying other fish.  If you consider yourself a progressive, you’ve already read and possibly even recognized our work elsewhere. We will be continuing those projects and check in here as not to neglect […]
  • Welcome to the first business day of our reinvigorated 10 year run! 2017/01/02
    Thanks to the sheer incompetence of Judicial Council staff leadership, we’re going to be spending the next ten years nipping at their heels. Last week, the San Francisco trial court ruled that the Jacobs entities maintained their contractors license and that the 22.7 million that the Judicial Council should have been able to recover is […]
  • Working for the Judicial Council and a pattern of racketeering activity 2016/10/31
    The Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, commonly referred to as the RICO Act or simply RICO, is a United States federal law that provides for extended criminal penalties and a civil cause of action for acts performed as part of an ongoing criminal organization. The RICO Act focuses specifically on racketeering, and it allows […]
