Do you still remember President Eisenhower's warning about the "Military Industrial" Complex??
In Bob Woodward's new book: "Obama's War", you'll split a gut every time you hear a politician or a government employee talk about "civilian control of the military". The only people REALLY making the decisions about America's wars are across the river from Washington in the Pentagon. Many years ago, after I was no longer Intelligence Operations Officer of our 4th US Armored Division in Goeppingen, I was given a tour of the Pentagon by Steve Mayfield, who had tried to convince me to work for the CIA in East Germany. After Steve had dropped off his documents to one of the more important Generals, we walked through most of the Pentagon, to see how the "other" side lives. But I digress: As Michael Moore documents, the only people REALLY making decisions about America's wars are in the "Pentagon", which I consider an occult bunker, where evil plans are made to destroy our planet. For everyone who supported Obama in 2008, it's reassuring to find out he understands that we have to get out of Afghanistan. Or does he? Whatever his beliefs, does he really understand that we have to get out of that god-forsaken country? Only time will tell!
