Some Things Are Just TOO COMICAL!!!


Ok, so technically I should WHINE at tongodeon for his comical Barry McCaffrey on Iraq and Iran since the reference in the Wiki had the giggler:
General McCaffrey's last command in the Army was that of the United States Southern Command (SOUTHCOM), the unified command responsible for U.S. military activities in Central and South America. He commanded SOUTHCOM, whose headquarters were then in the Republic of Panama, from 1994 to 1996. Besides managing military personnel, as part of his duties in Panama, McCaffrey supported humanitarian operations for over 10,000 Cuban refugees in 1996. It was also during his last military position that he created the first Human Rights Council and Human Rights Code of Conduct for U.S. Military Joint Command.

He is well-known for having been Director of the Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) under President Bill Clinton from 1996 to 2001. As Drug Czar, General McCaffrey (ret.) was instrumental in negotiating a deal to place anti-drug messages in prime time television shows without acknowledging that these messages were paid for by his Office. This created quite a scandal when it was revealed in Salon.com, and the practice was later declared illegal by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) under President George W. Bush.

[ cf Barry McCaffrey (emphasis mine) ]
WOW....

Under the new regime it is illegal for the government to do the Evil Klintonesta Propoganda Machine with out the caveat that the Propoganda is Government Sponsored!!!

I mean, What next? That the Government has actually mandated a True In Propoganda Law?

And to think that at one time 'human rights' were a cool thing... but I guess that was also aligned with the whole Anti-Castro Pro-Latino Thingus of PoohBah Stuff.

My How Things Are More Klintonesta EVER DAY!!!
