Nagl shifts left; pre-positions

Hey, everyone is allowed to take what ever position they want on anything, and all political sides need smart military experience helping them make the right decisions for the Nation. Therefore, no harm no foul for Nagl - however - I only think it is fair to give everyone proper Indications & Warnings about the why/what is behind Nagl, a Army superstar, plans to do when he punches out at 20. Nothing wrong with punching out at 20 - just a shame and as you will see below - not without reason, methinks.

Ever hear of the Center for a New American Security? Didn't think so. That is where he is headed once he finished TAP class and all. Heck, he is there right now - I think he should have waited until after he left Active Duty before going over to such an obviously partisan organization. Yes, partisan - and not what you might think.

So, you ask - who is in the CNAS?

I will let you do your own work on the Board of Advisors, if you want. One note though, note in addition to Armitage Actual above, there is another Armitage connection below. Armitage, in addition to having classic wannabe SEAL-lust, is a stalking horse for Colin Powell. Hint, hint.

Yes, the CNAS is a Democrat holding pen. It even has ole Nate Fick, who has made me sad since he started hanging out with Wall of Shame founder Wesley Clark and other lost souls at the Lefty IAVA.

Like I said earlier, it is good that both sides have smarts working for them, but it is a little sad to see Nagl playing for the other team, but hey - best of luck with that - and have some fun at those parties.....
