If ONLY it were relevant in some way...

I should complement Hebisner for his unpleasant posting about the Seymour Hersh article in the New Yorker since he rightfully notes the scary part:
Iran-Contra was the subject of an informal “lessons learned” discussion two years ago among veterans of the scandal. Abrams led the discussion. One conclusion was that even though the program was eventually exposed, it had been possible to execute it without telling Congress. As to what the experience taught them, in terms of future covert operations, the participants found: “One, you can’t trust our friends. Two, the C.I.A. has got to be totally out of it. Three, you can’t trust the uniformed military, and four, it’s got to be run out of the Vice-President’s office”—a reference to Cheney’s role, the former senior intelligence official said.

But the real tragedy here is whether or not it is Even Worth Noting????

Do americans even care that there was once an american republic where the notion was that the rule of law was greater than any person....

Or are they happier knowing that Jesus Gave Us Nukes, so what ever happens is all a part of the Divine Will...
