Pointy Tail of Satan: They should get Bush and Cheney to pull the caissons.
sat1va: UNC_Samurai:What irritates me is someone may not qualify to get a space there, that deserves it...but this guy gets a plot:[farm9.staticflickr.com image 640x603]He's misunderstood. McNamara made a pretty convincing argument that his role was to advise the president, but since the president is elected he represents the will of the people and by appointment would ultimately carry out the orders he was given.Tapes show he advised Kennedy to withdraw from Vietnam in 1963 and then later Johnson was complaining to McNamara about how he used to make talk about withdrawal and sounding like a loser to Kennedy. Also, the whole Gulf of Tonkin incident was basically the Navy brass bumbling around with mixed information, no doubt about that... I think.A lot of people think McNamara is a son of a biatch.He also probably saved millions of lives with the insistence on automobile safety and the introduction of the seat belt and non-impaling steering wheel while at Ford.
