New #Wikileaks Revelation Exposes Big State Department Lie, This Time in Bahrain
#John_Timoney has a face like a fist and a CV out of The Departed. He’s been a cop in New York, Miami and Philadelphia. And now he’s advising the Bahraini government on policing matters.
That’s the Bahraini government, the one that gases, tortures and kills protesters as their preferred method of public order policing. And that’s Timoney, who’s been called “the worst cop in America” and faced hundreds of complaints over his violent approach to public order policing in the U.S.
The State Department has always insisted Timoney’s appointment in Bahrain has nothing to do with them. The distancing is deliberate — human rights groups are scrutinizing the repressive regime closely.
An email has turned up on Wikileaks ▻http://search.wikileaks.org/gifiles/?viewemailid=85406 showing the job opportunity that Timoney eventually took when he was promoted by an American “Regional Security Officer” who was stationed at the Bahrain Embassy five months before Timoney was appointed.
