    Actually no. Armitage was very much outside the Bush inner circle. (hence, why the Democrats and the press downplayed his role...)

    What about Bradley. There are witnesses saying that she started the fracus. Are you screaming for her resignation, as well?

    Sole source contracts are used for a variety of reasons. Here is what Wikipedia says:

    Legal reasons for sole source contracts include [1]:
    only one firm has a product that will meet the projects needs or only one firm can do the work;
    the existence of an unusual and compelling urgency;
    for purposes of industrial mobilization or expert services;
    an international agreement;
    sole source is authorized or required by law, e.g., socio-economic programs;
    national security and
    the public interest.
    Use of such authorities requires written justification and approval at specified levels. See 48 CFR Ch. 1, Subpart 6.3.
    I have used them. Sometimes we are continuing work that was originally competitively bid. Sometimes there is only one company that has the expertise to do the work. Sometimes it does not make sense to go through the time and expense of competition for a time sensitive project that the selected company is already performing on.

    I have been involved in some medium-sized IDIQ contracts (500M) where we won, along with a few other companies. Given the quality of our work compared to the others we ended up performing most of the work. The others just did not have the engineering and operational depth to come in on time, under budget with the right technology to do the mission.

    You make her sound like the World Heavyweight Champion picking on a skinny third grader.

    Ohhhhhhh! So, now we're going to wait for an actual investigation, before we start insisting that anyone is guilty of a crime?

    A crime is a crime. She doesn't get a free pass from the law, because she's a woman.

    Really? Is that why he was member of the "Vulcans"? Sounds kind of strange to admit an outsider to an inner circle group like the Vulcans.
