Has anyone watched the Discovery Science Channel show "Build it Bigger" with Danny Forster? I happened to catch an episode today about the Littoral Combat Ship USS New Orleans. Something Danny said took me aback. He was on-board while the ship was conducting sea trials and he said there was someone from the State Department aboard who would decide if they were mission-capable or would have to go back for a major [and I think he said refit, but that doesn't seem right]. Well, knock me down with a feather. Might as well have someone from Dominos or Papa Johns deciding if our war ships are capable of delivering pizza.

as far as I am concerned, there are hostages in the Petraeus affair. First, there is his pension, then Broadhurst is under active investigation, his wife’s employment with the gubermint, and there is a great big WTF regarding Kelley. If we take Petraeus’ “honor and integrity” at face value, would he play along with the administration in order to protect those close to him? Perhaps.

He didn’t resign until much, much later.
