It is an interesting dynamic...on many fronts. While Obama and the democrats are decreasing the number of military personnel - or at least plan to, I assume the number of PMC personnel will only increase.

| Political Talk|| Thoughts On Civilian Military Contractors? - DeltaDoc on 3/10/14 at 1:53 pm|
I am reading a book by Jeremy Scahill about Blackwater right now. Scahill is pretty left-wing and some of his points ring pretty hollow in the book, but all things considered, it is pretty amazing just how little oversight there has been and continues to be relative to these private contractors.

A special prosecutor needs to be nominated to sort through all of this bull shite. Issa needs to step aside and let a special prosecutor perform an investigation. If that includes indicting Lerner, or even the president for that matter based on credible evidence of criminal activity, then so be it.

What should the breakdown of focus be for a president between foreign and domestic issues, optimally?
Should it be 50/50 or should it lean more heavily one direction over the other?
It seems that Obama and his "fundamentally change the country" promises were correct when you look at Obamacare,...
