It won't hurt, you know.
O.k. Clem. I REFUTED your claim that these sources were "Solid".
I supported my claim with sources and links and accurate information some from THEIR OWN SITES. .... Prove I'm wrong
. We need more than your "Opinion" you bullshiter. Back up your claims or shut the fuck up Clem.
Let's take the following excerpt:
David S. Addington is group vice president for research at The Heritage Foundation. David Spears Addington was legal counsel(2001–2005)and chief of staff(2005–2009)to Vice President Dick Cheney. During 21 years of federal service, Addington worked at the CIA, the Reagan White House, the Department of Defense,
four congressional committees, and the Cheney Office of the Vice President. He was appointed to replace I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby Jr. as Cheney's chief of staff upon Libby's resignation when Libby was indicted on charges of perjury and obstruction of justice on October 28, 2005. Addington was an assistant general counsel for the Central Intelligence Agency from 1981 to 1984. From 1984 to 1987 he was counsel for the House committees on intelligence and foreign affairs. news articles have said that he was one of the principal authors of a controversial minority report issued at the conclusion of the joint committee's investigation, which "defended President Reagan by claiming it was 'unconstitutional for Congress to pass laws intruding' on the 'commander in chief.'"
First, so what that he worked for Reagan or Cheney? If you want an expert on, say, the Cold War, would you hire someone from leftist academia? From the liberal MSM? From the sugar industry?
No, you'd hire someone who actually worked in defense of the country during that period.
You foolishly assume that just because he worked in government or for Reagan or Cheney that he isn't a person of integrity. How freaking stupid.
You have absolutely no evidence to support your assumption.
Lots of people of very high integrity played important roles in the defense of the country, leaving better jobs of higher pay to work in government, or working in government for most of their life, when they could have done better in the private sector.
Further, your source made a stupid error implicitly criticizing him for writing that minority report.Boland himself
admitted later that his own Boland Amendment was very likely unConstitutional.
So out of this citation, what is your point, other than to express your paranoia and bad judgment?
