Nov 5, 2008  •  Post A Comment

ABC News has appointed Jake Tapper as senior White House correspondent, Martha Raddatz as senior foreign affairs correspondent and Jonathan Karl as senior congressional correspondent.
All three correspondents will take on their new assignments effective immediately.
Mr. Tapper, who joined ABC News in 2003, was previously ABC’s senior national and political correspondent. He also has substituted as an anchor on “Nightline” and “This Week With George Stephanopoulos.”
Ms. Raddatz has been ABC News’ chief White House correspondent since November 2005. Prior to covering the White House, she was ABC’s senior national security correspondent.
Mr. Karl joined ABC in 2003 and has been senior national security correspondent since January 2006. He also served as a congressional correspondent for CNN.
“As we begin the transition to a new administration, we are fortunate to have in Jake, Martha and Jon three of the best beat reporters in journalism covering the White House, the foreign policy establishment and Congress,” David Westin, president of ABC News, said in a statement. “Each brings uncommon expertise and reporting skills that will ensure our audiences learn all that they want to know about where our government seeks to lead us.”


  1. I am an indepenent inventor with interests in developing military prototypes.I recently designed some of the most advanced alternative energies technologies in a private research project to develope purpetualland and air vehicle technologies.In doing so,I developed the design and concept specifications for jet technology that will eliminate the use of fossil fuel alltogather.But, there’s more,this technology is also of military significance,and will place National Security in jeopardy.The technologies are designed specifically to bypass American defense missile systems developed under the Stratigic Defense Initiative.Meaning that if other countries and there militaries obtain this technology they will be able to fire missiles,including those with a nuclear capacity,passed all of the U.S. defense systems undetectably and with a %100 success rate.This technology will invalidate $350b worth of defense technologies,and launch the world into the next cold war if in the hands of the openned market or foriegn countries. Despite the facts of the case,and the implications associated with this technology,the U.S. Government continues to place the security of All Americans alike in jeopardy of this technology.
    Upon my attempts to notify the U.S. Government that the technology was available,and placed Americans at risk if found in the wrong hands,including over a dozen correspondences to the White House and President Barak Obama,the DOD,NSA,NASA,and the CIA each,and over a eight week time period,I have encountered absolute redundancy.the fact has become clear,the president of the United States of America,and his administration are not compitent,or trrustworthy enough to understand the definition of a National Security issue,nor to handle those issues adequately.In a situation which new technology that places Americans at risk emerges,it should be a matter of the uttmost importance to ensure that the technology is contained, and secured untill the level of risk to the Amercan people disolves.In our emediate case,the U.S. Government has failed to secure the technology designs in question,and even promoted those technologies to be handled in a manner that will precisely jeopardize American safety by instructing me as the inventor to seek the openned market and release the technology,thereby, making this technology available to enemy nations.This is not just a fundamental error on behalf of our nations leaders,and National Security,it is a fatal error.The new technologies which I’ve designed are so far advanced that it may take the better part of two decades to design defense technologies to protect our citizens from it,and yet relentlessly our own National Security structures lack the fundamental integrity to be compitent of post,and secure advanced weapons technology.
    Further,the president of the United States,Barak Obamahas been thoroughly notified of the technology at hand,and is aware that these technologies will %100 eliminate the need of fossil fuels in the United States,meaning no more foriegn oil dependency,and a vast expansion of alternate/renewable energy resources in America.The verry same technologies that the President himself vowed on Oath the secure,and inest into for the better of our National Future.The same technology that has proven the Presidential administration to be a sham.Not only has the president not invested into purpetual technologies as I have proposed over a period of 8 weeks,and sought assistance from the Obama Administration in developing,the President and his administration have not even taken interest in the technology enough to even make a basic inquiry,causing reason for Americans alike to begin questioning the overall integrity of the Man we call President.Can the President of the United States live up to the promises he made to millions while campaigning for the presidency,or will this be another four years awash with the same type of governancy found in the Bush Administration.More importantly,is that another four years that American society can accept.A presidency that advertizes greatness,and produces tyranny,ignores the people,innitiates wars,and savages American liberty,freedom,and what little remaining happiness our people still have.Despite the grand cover story of “change”,and opennedness,all we as Americans continue to recieve is more of the Bush therapy.
    In particular,this one issue continues to bother me.If our Government,and President cannot identify,research,or inquire as to any potentialjeopardization of National Security,whether it be a matter of technology,or terrorbinladin,How then can we trust that another 911 will not be investigated?will our leaders once again,and continuousely make the same mistakes that lead us to thousands dead in the 911 incident,or will they simply just allow every threat,technology,and terrorist go unchecked?Would America feel safe Knowing that thier leaders are not capable of maintaining the basics of domestic security by even the simplest means?,Or that thier Presidential administration has no intent to live up to his own campaign promises to end our foriegn oil dependency,and invest into new technologies for the future of renewable energies.This isn’t just a matter of National Security with the technologied of my designation,I opennedly offered to assist the Obama Administration in the journey for renewable energies,even to cater those technologies to him,and with every attempt the offer is disregarded,smacked away,and even so,with the direct knowledge that these technologies will not only change the face of America, but also buisiness,and the world. So I persist,contacting the U.S. Government each day,offering to provide the solution to a vast portion of our technological,and economical woes,offering the services they called for and demanded on the compaign trail of every politician in the country,will the supply to thier demand continue to go uheard?
    ATTN:I wrote this article so that the trueth our circumstances as Americans can come to light.every American deserves to know the every disservice produced by our leaders,and in the emediate case,our Governments disservice to our people is that again our polititians will not provide the services promised.I am seeking help from every aspect to finally pursue the technologies I’ve designed into the government,yet havent made ground.Any assistance provided by the press,the American People,and all those concerned is verry much appreciated,and any coverage of this story I believe is more than due.I am staying at 425 Dst. NW Washington D.C. 20001,at an Emergency shelter for the durration of how long it takes to get the Government to have this issue heard.I am accepting all interviews. Thankyou
