 “They’ve got to screen everybody who’s going to be working directly with the [brigade],” said an Army officer who was involved in preparing bases for the new adviser teams earlier this year and who, like others contacted for this story, agreed to speak on the condition of anonymity. “That means screening basically the whole damn Afghan National Army, and we’re way behind the power curve on that.” -- Politico

  1. Actually, I'm surprised after what happened in the Waffle House that Wayne LaPierre aren't urging teachers to wrest guns away from attackers w/their bare hands, as some have suggested.

    Oh, wait...LaPierre wants to sell MORE guns. Silly me!

    Both doozies, & one of them must've misspelled his last name.

  3. News--"Oliver North replacing Wayne LaPierre as head of NRA."
