Criminal Advice

The rethuglican gang of criminals defined: if you've been convicted of lying to congress, our congress critters want your advice:

House Republicans have a new foreign policy adviser with a controversial pedigree: Oliver North.

North, an aide on Ronald Reagan's National Security Council who is best known for his role in the Iran-Contra scheme to sell arms to Iran and divert the funds to Nicaraguan revolutionaries in the 1980s, was the special guest at a House Republican Conference meeting on Tuesday. North was convicted on three counts related to the Iran-Contra scandal and his efforts to cover it up, but the convictions were later overturned.

North’s mission: Relay his insights into the U.S. involvement in Afghanistan, where he recently visited.

So, for advice on Afghanistan, let's ask someone who illegally sold arms to Iran...

I'm speechless.

I guess next they'll be using Bernie Madoff to set up regulations for Wall Street. Dick Cheney for energy policy? Oh that's right he already did that.
