"He also helped build the case that Saddam Hussein possessed weapons of mass destruction, which turned out to be wrong."
     -and
"More than 100 former US envoys signed a letter urging senators to reject the nomination."
     -and
"He once derided careerists at the US foreign ministry as having been "schooled in accommodation and compromise with foreigners, rather than aggressive advocacy of US interests"."
      -AND
"And in a recent op-ed for the Wall Street Journal, he set out the case for a pre-emptive strike on North Korea."

Ed "who hopes all those Evangelicals who voted for Trump, are praying really, really, really hard, right now..." E

Fortunately the weather cooperated this year to make for some great conditions last weekend! Putting together a ski event can really be a crap-shoot, but it all came together. Kudos to everyone involved.

First time up there today and got it in excellent shape... hero ice up the left side for the most part... such a cool place! If you think it is a far drive consider the timing from Pinkham Notch... we made the trip from Pinkham round trip in four hours today. Full report:
