"...I take my daily orders from Dr. Kissinger..."

(fervent O followers may want to smoke some Hopium before reading...)

National Security Advisor James L. Jones, speaking at the 45th Munich Conference on Security Policy.

From the transcript on the Council on Foreign Relations site:

"Thank you for that wonderful tribute to Henry Kissinger yesterday. Congratulations. As the most recent National Security Advisor of the United States, I take my daily orders from Dr. Kissinger, filtered down through Generaal Brent Scowcroft and Sandy Berger, who is also here. We have a chain of command in the National Security Council that exists today."

Once again, that's James L. Jones, Obama's National Security 'Advisor', formerly on the Board of Directors at Chevron and Boeing, Trustee for the Center for Strategic and International Studies (lookee, ZBig chairs the Advisory panel!), member and part of the Guiding Coalition in the Project on National Security Reform (other GC members t0 include Gingrich, Blair, Blackwell, and Scowcroft, among others), and former member of The Atlantic Council of the United States (Directors, honorary and otherwise, to include Kissinger, Scowcroft, Tenet, Schultz, Woolsey, and James A. Baker III) with which he is still affiliated.

"...I take my orders from..."

Dr. Henry Kissinger (recent special envoy to Russia, in case you forgot), the man who has to take legal advice before traveling due to his being wanted in so many different countries for war crimes. Rather than go into the massive pile of facts about this miserable excuse for a human being (all interested parties need to do is look), how about a couple of greatest hit quotes?

"Military men are just dumb stupid animals to be used as pawns in foreign policy." - Henry Kissinger, quoted in "Kiss the Boys Goodbye: How the United States Betrayed Its Own POW's in Vietnam"

"The illegal we do immediately. The unconstitutional takes a little longer"--New York Times, Oct. 28, 1973

If these remarks become too widespread, what is the over/under that Jones will say "I was joking!"
