HL Mencken, huh?

OK, here's a few for you:

Criticism is prejudice made plausible.

Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want and deserve to get it good and hard.

or how about this one, applied to your position

Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin to slit throats.

That seems to nicely summarize your position.  Well, if you come at Mike Griffin to slit his throat, or at me to slit mine, I've got some Remington 12 gauge waiting for ya, HL, buddy. 

FOIA my ass.

I've perused your reading list and I've come to the conclusion that if you weren't such jackass we might actually become friends.

I don't want to slit Mr. Griffins throat, at least not yet anyway. I do want him to release reports that were paid for by the lowly taxpayer.

I don't seem to recall just exactly when Mr. Griffin was authorized by Congress to declare things Classified when it suits him. Perhaps you can help me with that.

Until such time, if the taxpayers funded it the taxpayers can have access to it.

Unless of course you want every government functionary to decide all on their own when they can be held accountable for their stewardship of taxpayer money.
