The Anniversary

It’s hard to believe that it’s been seventeen years. Glenn Reynolds has some links and thoughts. Yes, Barack Obama was feckless, but part of the reason we got him was due to the fecklessness of George Bush, and the mismanagement of Iraq. I thought at the time the administration had a strategic plan for the Middle East, but I was wrong.

[Update a while later]

Here’s a lot more.

Space Force

That was then, this is now:

Air Force Secretary Heather Wilson asserted on Wednesday that the service is not pushing back on President Trump’s idea to create a Space Force. She offered no new details on how the process of forming a new service might unfold but insisted that this “has to be done the right way.”

I’m old enough to remember when she opposed Space Corps, let alone Space Force.

And are people really talking (again) about a Department of Space? Please, no.
