Top Staffer (CIA Op?) Leaves Rand Paul's Campaign

Elise Jordan with Henry Kissinger

Rand Paul’s sputtering presidential campaign has lost a top staffer: policy aide Elise Jordan, reports Politico. It is probably a very good thing that Jordan is no longer in the Paulian ambit.

Jordan is a total establishment crony, probably some kind of CIA operative. She previously was a director for communications in the National Security Council from 2008-09. She worked in the White House Office of Presidential Speechwriting, at the U.S. Embassy, Baghdad and for the Commanding General's Strategic Advisory Group at the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) headquarters in Kabul, Afghanistan, as well as speechwriter to Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice..She was controlling  advising Rand on foreign policy.

She has now taken a job at NBC News and MSNBC as a political analyst.

Jordan is the widow of Michael Hastings, the former "Rolling Stone" reporter whose 2010 profile of Gen. Stanley McChrystal, then the U.S. commander in Afghanistan, led to the general's resignation.

Hastings died in a mysterious car crash (SEE: Murder Mystery(?) Michael Hastings and a CyberSecurity Firm Called Endgame).

  1. That's some resume she's got, if perpetual war, empire, and imperialism is your thing. Now she's headed off to NBC/MSNBC? How did Rand get mixed up with someone like that? I guess it explains some of his headscratchers on foreign policy. Makes me wonder even more about Hastings...

  4. Her C.V. sheds a whole new light (to me) on the Hastings hit.

  5. RW, did Bush cause 9/11 too? And did Neil Armstrong really not make it to the moon?

  6. RW - You do know that people try to work from the inside to create change, right? It's foolish to call this lady a CIA operative. She's probably just as libertarian as you.
