Not as far fetched as the negative 8 votes would indicate

I'm not talking about the article itself - which I admit is sketchy - but the idea.

Something is going on. A house cleaning in the armed forces. Why?

An old Chinese guy I knew (he was trying to sell me insurance) told me that living in communist China, one got very good at 'reading between the lines' of the official press to see what was really going on under the surface. I will never forget what he said about our so-called "free press," which was along the lines of:

"This is the best propaganda system in the world! You Americans actually believe it!" And he had a huge, hearty laugh at that. A big belly laugh, as if it were the funniest thing and the best inside joke in the world. And to him, I'm sure it was.

The whole press is focused on the sex scandal aspect (political entertainment complex).

Who the hell knows what the hell is going on? One thing is certain: The idiot box will never tell.

He's the man.
