    I provided the proof from multiple credible sources. I'm sorry you reject them. That part I cannot help you with. Goodnight Jack!

    There was nothing serious to any of it. We missed our chance to make a difference. The idea that Department of State lunch money for opposition against an entrenched and ruthless dictator would matter in the slightest is laughable.

    Well yeah, sure it is, and, if a liberal did this to a conservative president, we'd never hear the end of it.

    Gates can whine and moan all he likes but the reality is that the military leadership, including Gates, is incompetent. Their immediate response to the attacks on 9/11 would have made us the laughing stock of the global community if the joke wasn't so disturbingly bad. The invasion and occupation of Iraq was a disaster. Afghanistan has been nothing but a waste of lives and resources with nothing to show for it. Why should anyone who has been paying attention throw a ticker tape parade knowing that they got us involved in two wars they didn't know then or now how to effectively wage or end? In terms of his boo-hooing about the level of oversight and "meddling"; the man is old enough to remember that if you leave the military alone for five minutes it will sell weapons to Iran to subsidize a coup d'etat in Nicaragua without authorization.

    In reviewing this thread it occurs to me that we may have been talking past each other. When I referred to modest help I was referring to arms and combat support equipment. Nothing like that had been provided before, and we waited too long.
