Edward Gabriel's married to the Game, and he loves his wifey

Turns out Moroccan lobbyist and former ambassador Edward Gabriel is married to another lobbyist with just as little concern for human welfare: Kathleen "Buffy" Linehan, a lobbyist for tobacco company Phillip Morris:
In 1992, as head of Philip Morris’s lobbying group, she was deposed in a lawsuit against B.J. Reynolds Tobacco (KUEPER v. R.J. REYNOLDS TOBACCO CO). Sourcewatch, a project of the Center for Media and Democracy, comments about her deposition: “…Linehan indicated that she was involved in lobbying against the banning of smoking on commercial aircraft, and that she does not consider the health consequences of the product she is lobbying (cigarettes).” And at another deposition in 1995, Sourcewatch adds that “Linehan stated that she did not believe that cigarette smoking is addictive."
It's sweet when two people with so much in common can find each other. For bonus Ed Gabriel fun, check out the foreign lobbyist registration form (PDF) his company, the Gabriel Company LLC, filed to work for Morocco. The surprise is that Gabriel doesn't get paid:
Registrant will provide advice on an informal unpaid basis to Morocco. Registrant will be reimbursed by foreign principal for out-of-pocket expenses.
Huh. Maybe he's doing his high school service project.

    Oh, poor Edward he's just full of love for everyone except the Saharawis. But what have we done to deserve this.

    The man is so nice that he's doing the Moroccan job for free!

    Or is he? Could it that he’s really hiding something for tax purposes.

    I believe we should dig further to find out? But how?

    This could be a similar case to that of the Together Foundation scandal?

    Do you know that Philip of Together Foundation is so scared now that he's disappeared from the internet?

    Since his alleged Casablanca theft of tapes, he seems to have decided to delete all the material related to the slavery allegation and is now just a sleeper agent. Perhaps with no salary from Morocco as he passed his use date. He's no longer useful for the Makhzen and the DST.

    I believe that our friend Edward will have the same fate. It's just a question of time.

  2. i think by next month the notion on the very bottom of moroccan ciggarettes that mentioned 15/94 law smoking may kill will have disapeared,fortunately i gave up smoking i month ago.

  3. i think Nick Brooks is doing great job at his blog SAND AND DUST it deserve to be checked,he got nice news there.

  4. How much did Nick pay you to say that, Devotee? Just kidding, his blog has been especially good lately. I've been meaning to link to his post about the autonomy book signing. I'm glad you quit smoking--we need you around!

    Saharawi Student, I don't know if Ed Gabriel's hiding anything, but I do admit it seems strange that he would do this out of the kindness of his heart. Poor Philippe is a friendly fellow, but I liked your joke about him passing his expiration date.

    As you probably know, the Foundation's website is under construction again, and has been for a couple of months.

  5. Will - about $200,000, and it will all be there in an official budgetary statement at the end of the tax year ;-)

  6. I thought the Together Foundation had slipped gently away after it became obvious that it was a put-up job by Moroccan spooks. It seems to have been replaced by this:

    They seem to have hired someone with better web skills and a more comprehensive command of the English language for FFA. However, it's still the same unsubtle pro-Rabat bilge.

    As if it wasn't obvious enough who's behind this, there's a watermark-style background that shows a greater Morocco, with a Moroccan flag squatting over the western Mediterranean.

    Same old craaap, just a bit slicker.

  7. Fair enough. He just has to register as a lobbyist for a foreign blog. That post is coming up eventually, but big DC stuff is going down that I have to post on elsewhere.

    Nick, I think you should toss up some graffiti of your own at the book signing place. Rep your side and all that.

  8. Thanks for the tip

  9. Eek, that's actually a pretty good looking site. It's so sad when these sites don't have any names that we can exploit, since that's what undid the Together Foundation.

  10. Your challenge, Will, should you choose to accept it....

    I'm sure you can dig some dirt on Freedom For All....

  12. Oh really. I'll have to drop him a line. Thanks, Laroussi. I'll try and talk to him about who ordered it through him.

    I was looking up another site called that was registered to a Moroccan.

  13. I emailed him offering information about Moroccan repression that could make his site more balanced.

    Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
    Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
    Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
    Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.
    Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
    The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
