    I'm done....Trying to intelligently discuss anything with someone who's mind is slammed shut is a worthless waste of time.

    But I'll leave you with Ridge's own words:

    "I believe our strong interventions had pulled the 'go-up' advocates back from the brink," Ridge writes. "But I consider the episode to be not only a dramatic moment in Washington's recent history, but another illustration of the intersection of politics, fear, credibility and security."

    "After that episode, I knew I had to follow through with my plans to leave the federal government for the private sector," Ridge, who resigned soon after the election where Bush defeated Democrat John F. Kerry, writes in "The Test of Our Times: America Under Siege ... And How We Can Be Safe Again."

    Lol, yes. God forbid we believe what the writer of the book said instead of what the publishers of his book said.

    Ok...I can only assume that you say that because you think I was influenced by campaign slogans. Would it surprise you to know that I voted for Obama?

    Here are Ridge's own words:
    "I believe our strong interventions had pulled the 'go-up' advocates back from the brink," Ridge writes. "But I consider the episode to be not only a dramatic moment in Washington's recent history, but another illustration of the intersection of politics, fear, credibility and security."

    You just contradicted your other posts. There's no accusation there.
    If you expect people to be rational, you aren't being rational.

    ""Let me make it very clear. I was never directed to do so no matter how many analysts, pundits or critics say so.""

    Because he was a poor candidate and made poor decisions. I also suspected him of suffering from PTSD
