Sanction stuff is at the bottom...
"You can never value the job more than your own integrity" Judge James Baker Chief Judge, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces, Adjunct
Personally I learned that when being in a room full of people that work for "acronyms" I learned that what I did in the 80's and 90's mattered. By my research or as others would call it "counter intelligence" work I was able to provide people "context". At each meal people at the table would introduce themselves and how they were connected to the intelligence community. Quickly I learned that adding an "H" when saying I did research during the Bush administration was HIGHLY important.
In reference to NISSAN.... I sat next to a man that specializes in "Sanctions"... It's time NISSAN showed RESPECT to America. Also the tougher the sanctions the faster they work. Then the Iranian people will enjoy FREEDOM (or at least NOT have access to the "bomb") & the tougher the sanctions the sooner that we can restore relations/trade with IRAN and that's good for business. Most important. If the sanctions are NOT tough and if they are filled with "loopholes" they will not work and our military has been "stretched" we need to "be serious".... Let's hope the White House signs the bill "as is"...
