Jim White at the very liberal Firedoglake links and cites me concerning battlespace control and the associated response by General McChrystal’s Staff. The tale is so twisted and unrelated to the subject of my two articles that I don’t even know where to begin to decipher what he is talking about, so I can’t copy any of his prose. He fancies cover-ups, horrible secret things to which we aren’t privy, and all manner of malfeasance and misdeed. He cites the very un-American Gareth Porter, and he charges deception at every turn.
It just goes to show that presuppositions mean everything. You see a devil around every corner if you think that there is supposed to be one there. And all of this time I actually thought I was talking about RC South battlespace control, appreciation for and full utilization of the MAGTF (Marine Air Ground Task Force) concept and organization, and matrix of SOF to regional command so as to ensure that there is integration, cooperation and full cognizance of parallel operations in the AO.
UPDATE: Over at Firedoglake, Jim dropped a comment that said something like “Hey look. Someone’s mad at me,” linking this article. Then he conveniently turned off comments to the post.
No, Jim. Not mad. Humored and amused, but not mad. That’s why this article was posted in the humor category.
