As I said in the comments over at Dave's place, I write proposals for a living and no, that's not a secret. And I would not have my name anywhere near this steaming piece of crap.Three months of work from a multi-person team that included a fact-finding mission to Afghanistan, supposedly countless interviews and the final result is less than 50 pages long? I just delivered a bid that had a team of 6 people working non-stop for 2 1/2 months and it had 20 separate volumes. It’s an old cliché but it’s astonishingly true, you really do get what you pay for in this world. At the risk of further repeating myself, I guess my standards are just higher than Big Daddy's.
I was following Warkins's post and finding it reasonnable until the very end..."As a nation at war - because we are - we should welcome John Manley's report..."Oh, fuck off, you maudlin ninny.
Oh, and this bit about how the report contains sections lifted from something Manley wrote for Policy Options back in October is just too delicious.How much did this panel cost us?In any case, I'm glad I don't have to change my opinion about the robotic John Manley, who's a toady to power and special interest and always has been.
Well, the panel never accepted submission fron the Canadian Public, so you gotta know they had very little to work with...ahem..Whitewash...
Warkin never even read the damn report. Someone summarized for him, it appears he is too damn lazy to read for himself and make his own judgment about it.
Did you read it, Jay? Or are you too busy defending nazis?...just kidding. Sort of.
ugggh...when are people going to get that you can't build a better afghanistan with guns and bombs! What we need to do is start putting money into peacekeeping and development. Why do they hate us?Because we keep shooting their kids!
