James Woolsey at Colorado College
Went to see James Woolsey speak this evening at Colorado College's Shove Chapel. Though at times when he was speaking of the"terrorist threat" I thought he looked and sounded just like Cheney on balance the talk was positive and constructive. The theme was energy. As in get off dependence on Middle East oil. Stop sending global warming gas into the atmosphere. How do we do this? The way is not easy and the answer lies in "wedges" of solutions not a single silver bullet. As a neo-con it is encouraging that he is forward thinking and recognizes the problem and is seeking solution sets. What is is troubling is that we still look to the neo-cons for anything that effects the public sphere after the disaster that is Iraq.
