    That was his point indeed. To expose the dangers of an all too big and powerful MIC that would have the power to influence USFP as we have seen. Imagine what he would think today about news medias own investments in defense contractors. IOW, it's here, Ike's worries.
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

    Ike's worst nightmares have come to pass, with a vengeance.

    Did Ike claim the MIC was reigning over the country? No, he didn't. So lets not compare Ike with nutjob BS.

    Hint: one juror's opinion is NOT the "jury's conclusion".

    No he did not use those words, "reigning over the country".

    What he did say was to beware the undue influence of a permanent arms industry. If one is able to read between the lines a bit, one can understand what he was talking about.

    Hint. Libby was convicted of four felonies, Nuff said.

    Good, then stop comparing nutbag idiocy on the internet to Ike. I'm sure he'd appreciate it.
