Paul Pillar served for 30 years as an analyst at the CIA, finishing his career as the national intelligence officer for the Near East and South Asia.
Question: At least the way the story is told by [journalist] Bob Woodward, is that even then the president is asking Rumsfeld to begin war plans.[Counterterrorism expert] Richard Clarke reports that [there is] lots of conversation about "Let's get ready." That's the fall [of 2001]. You're the Middle East guy for the Central Intelligence Agency, and you're not receiving any formal requests, any requests for information, any intelligence requests?...
Pillar
I did not receive any requests from a policy-maker on Iraq until about a year into the war. Now, this is to be distinguished from our military, which was doing a lot of the planning work and making many, many requests, usually at other levels, but some of my colleagues in the National Intelligence Council were involved in supporting the military planning. But no, I did not.
Q
A year into the war meaning when?
Pillar
Meaning close to mid-2004.... Remember, things like the infamous National Intelligence Estimate [NIE] on weapons of mass destruction, which was published in the fall of 2002, that was not requested by the administration; that was requested by Congress.
Q
Wait a minute. The Bush administration, the vice president, president, did not ever ask the Central Intelligence Agency for an intelligence assessment?
Pillar
I want to be precise. From my seat on the National Intelligence Council,... not just the CIA but the entire intelligence community,... no, I did not receive any request on Iraq.... There were other requests being made, from DIA to CIA, particularly by the military as they faced their very awesome job of planning.
Q
But not the vice president?
Pillar
No, sir.
Q
Not the president? Not the national security adviser?
Pillar
The course had already been set.

Do you know when World War One (The Great War) ended? October 2010!!! How about the Korean War? It hasn't!!! When did the Persian Gulf War end? Come on now, when did the Persian Gulf War END???
There are only two ways any war ends. When there is a Peace Treaty or when one side Capitulates. The combat of WWI was suspended on Nov. 11, 1917 but ended when war reparations were finally paid in Oct. 2010.
If You Must Know
Why Did World War I Just End?
By Claire Suddath Monday, Oct. 04, 2010
World War I ended over the weekend. Germany made its final reparations-related payment for the Great War on Oct. 3, nearly 92 years after the country's defeat by the Allies. That's not to say that Germany has been paying its dues consistently over the decades; the country defaulted on its loans many times and the current payouts have only been happening since the 1990s. What took Germany so long to pay for the war? Didn't World War I end long ago? Does this mean we're all survivors of the Great War?
Not quite. Germany's last $94 million payment issued on Sunday isn't a direct reparations settlement but rather the final sum owed on bonds that were issued between 1924 and 1930 and sold to foreign (mostly American) investors but then never paid. The story of German reparations involves several payment plans, years of inflation, broken promises, canceled debts and a man named Adolf Hitler who flat out refused to give anyone anything.

Hummmm, according to Wiki there were 3,068,000 millionaires in 2012 but in 2011 there were 3,104,000 or a drop of 1.2% which means we are going in the wrong direction!

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Millionaire

Now this source claims there are 9 million millionaires HOUSEHOLDS?

Study finds 9 million members of the millionaires club in the U.S.
A report from Spectrem Group, a Chicago-based research firm, found that 8.99 million U.S. households have a net worth of at least $1 million. This is lower than the 2007 high, but higher than the 2008 low.

Murder Charges Dropped for Illinois Man After Two Decades Behind Bars: June 28, 2013

A Chicago prisoner’s 20-year nightmare ended today when Cook County prosecutors dropped murder charges against him, clearing the path for his release. Daniel Taylor was convicted of a 1992 double murder and sentenced to life in prison despite records showing he was in police custody for disorderly conduct at the time the murders took place.

In February, Taylor’s attorneys from the Center on Wrongful Conviction filed a petition with the Cook County Circuit Court that confirms there were five current and former police employees who have sworn the records accurately indicate that Taylor was locked up. It also claims that a prosecutor’s notes and other documents supporting Taylor’s innocence were withheld before trial.

A lengthy interrogation two weeks after the crime resulted in Taylor’s false confession. Seven other juveniles also confessed and implicated each other in the murders. Taylor was 17 years old at the time. Among the others was Dennis Mixon, who admitted his involvement in a Chicago Tribune investigation in 2001. Mixon told reporters that he was involved but that the others were not. An accomplice, currently incarcerated for another murder, was also named.

Of the eight men, two had their charges dismissed before trial, one was acquitted and five were convicted. Two of the convicted men were released after serving their sentences, which leaves Mixon, Taylor and Deon Patrick, who is still fighting to overturn his conviction from prison. A review by State’s Attorney Anita Alvarez’s Conviction Integrity Unit finally persuaded Alvarez that Taylor’s conviction should be set aside, reports the Tribune.

The case illustrates an emerging pattern in Cook County’s wrongful convictions of the early 90s, which is also evident in the “Englewood Four” and “Dixmoor Five” cases. In both cases, false confessions were elicited from young men of color resulting in multiple wrongful convictions. Years later, DNA testing proved the nine men innocent and revealed that only one perpetrator had committed each crime.

Update: Request of Information under FOIA in an upcoming case includes not only Postmaster General, but also Inspector general for the USPS, David C. Williams, former military intelligence officer, who hopefully will be honest and will produce the information about USPS actions in response to my complaint in the past year.| June 30, 2013 |

Press release
Upcoming legal action against the Postmaster General includes a legal action for production of information under 5USC 552 FOIA against the Inspector General for the USPS, who received a criminal complaint from Attorney Taitz, showing Barack Obama using a forged Selective Service registration with a fabricated US Postal stamp and did not produce any response for a year.

Rougie doesn't even know an apple from an orange. The point is that his 90% figure was made up. Also most "self-made" millionaires I know were sent to private schools from well off families that were not millionaires but close to it. Then when Forbes asked if they were born into wealth they say "no" and it means 86% are self-made. Bullshit. Many were born into well off families with many advantages and then their home values increased to the point that they became "self made" millionaires. Average age 61. The Nixon-Ford-Carter years and early 80s were instrumental in making them millionaires due to INFLATION. Self-made millionaire was my grandfather who came to this country with nothing and was worth a mil in the 1940s when $1M meant something.

Makes no difference how many lost because that does not change either the 40% figure or the 10% currently on the list due to inheritance. Duh!

WEll, if my 90% is wrong, prove it?
And just because someones's parents were rich, does not mean he was handed it.
Oh, and just what is the average net worth of the Forbes 400? What would you expect the average net worth of the F-400 was thirty years ago? Yes, inflation is a factor. But we still have few millionaires now than when Obama entered the White House and that is evn with the inflation factor.

Now check this graph out.

Now, note 1999. That was when the DOT.COM bubble burst. Then in 2002 the Bush tax cuts started to cut in. By 2006 we had had the housing bubble burst, interest rates bottomed out, and people moved their money into the stock market. Notice the peak in 2007 just before the stock market dumped.
