@TastyBeverage It is funny how much is out in the open. Sometimes intentionally.

@Sirpad I won't laugh, but if you think politics are not involved in international military operations then you are kidding yourself. Exact methodologies are often concealed in order to protect sources and methods. This what I meant about attribution. That AP article had a lot of details very early on which is curious. All nations do this and Israel is no exception.

@MR151 Everything is smoke and mirrors. I would not be surprised if the weapons shipment actually had nothing to do with Iran and the missiles are simply being attributed to Iran via passive leaks to the press for political purposes.

No, that pretty much jives with my take on Marxist/socialist revolutions.

@SEAL76 No easy answers. We ask a lot of these guys and then don't know how to deal with the aftermath.

@Fred82 @JackMurphyRGRDo they? Or are they just giving a certain group of people what they want so that they can sell ads for more money?

@Fred82 I was trying to hint at the fallacy of journalists as left wing/right wing idealists. They're not. News is a money making venture and that is what journalists are loyal too.

@JHR13 Was he one of five that was read on to everything?
@Jaycel Adkins It's not that I disagree. It isn't black and white. Influence is different than control. Conspiracy theorists do the greatest service for the people in these groups. The gonzo out to lunch zanny crap they spew is the best cover for action anyone could ever hope for.
@A7Dave @JackMurphyRGR @gkcdk Say a media outlet or lobby group or individual which and who may or may not have an American face that is funded by the Israelis to conduct information operations directed against the American public in order to get support for US policies and political candidates which are favorable towards Israel.
@Lane I Not sure. "Low information" people are a tough nut to crack. It takes a lot of time and effort to really dig into an issue. It requires time and sources that most people simply don't have. It is difficult for me and I have more insight into certain issues than many others. I think part of it is educating people about ideologies, why they exist, and how there is no such thing as the left wing or right wing media. These are just commercial endeavors that game certain demographics for profit.
@islanddude58 There is this nexus where political science, history, and journalism fail to meet each other. It's kind of weird actually.
@gkcdk I don't believe for a moment that the Israelis had anything to do with Benghazi, but they do have a powerful voice in the media and a lobby group that really has their act together.
@sifiauthor @JackMurphyRGRDropped ya a line!

Glad to hear that your team mates were okay with it for the most part. I think the media makes a much bigger deal about gays in the military than it is for any of the troops actually serving.

This is some great on the ground stuff about post-9/11 SF history! I heard about the gig pit from SOPC survivors...

@sifiauthor I would be! I think we spoke briefly once before on kindleboards. Good to see things taking off for you! I really enjoyed your book about SF cache operations. Gant is a smooth operator.

@Virginstateofmind At this stage, no, I don't think so but this is what Guy is working on.
