More on Mc Namara; The Best and The Brightest

“It wasn’t until January, 1992, in a meeting chaired by Castro in Havana, Cuba, that I learned 162 nuclear warheads, including 90 tactical warheads, were on the island at the time of this critical moment of the crisis. … -Robert McNamara, The Fog of War.

I’ve read, and re-read, and re-read this passage to make sure I’m not hallucinating. Why did it take the U.S. Sec. Of Defense 30 ‘freakin years to learn something known to half of Miami in Oct. of 1962?–something young Cuban heroes, risking their lives on infiltration missions, had been shouting into the U.S. State Dept. and CIA’s ears since Sept. 8 1962!!!!??? (when the first missiles arrived) and for month’s earlier (when the SAM sites started being set up.)

Hah, there’s no arguing with a Hahhh-vad man. And Hahh-vad men infested Washington at the crucial time for Cuba’s liberation…..how sad.

I repeat, above I quote a former U.S. Sec. of Defense

If Pearl Harbor is considered “an intelligence failure” (which of course, it wasn’t) what the hell do you call THIS!

Unreal

  1. That’s pretty normal for a Democrat. Totally wasted intellect. Hell, Dean Rusk, JFK’s SecState, supposedly told the CIA, Pentagon, and JFK that the canceled airstrikes at the Bay of Pigs were not necessary nor crucial for the success of the operation. That ignorant assessment by Rusk comes from someone who served as an Army Colonel in WWII! Can anybody say John Kerry? The Democrats are driven by their childish, cowardly political philosophy, and any education or experience they may have is subjugated to their twisted ideological believes. As so many people have said so many times, facts and common sense are a nuisance to liberals and the great majority of Democrats.

    Very simple. We were merely “those people” then, as we’ve remained ever since. No need to take inferior life forms very seriously, especially if they’re “right wing.”

  3. something young Cuban heroes…had been shouting into the U.S. State Dept. and CIA’s ears

    Well, there’s your mistake. Diplomats and spooks won’t listen to anyone, unless they think it is in their best interests.
