    Much like any high level public servant he is known for some good things and some bad things. Anyone who has not seen "Fog of War" I highly recommend watching it. It is an interesting insight from ole Mac.

    That being said, I recently had my uncle a retired Air Force officer, and multiple tour Vietnam vet, and I know that he does not have kind words for the man.

    My condolences to his family and loved ones, though he had a life well lived until his passing at 93. I can only hope to last as long.

    .............took him long enough though! Guess he had to pluck up the courage to do it.

    There was a rumour that he had a nervous breakdown? Anyone got anything on that?
