[+/-] Cheney makes a power grab for nukes
The University of California regents have lost control of the national nuclear weapons program to the Carlyle Group:
In a stealth takeover by the Carlyle Group, facilitated by five admirals, the management contract will be transferred next year to the University of Texas, where the military and the Carlyle Group will have control. A new "ramping up" of the nuclear weapons program is underway, with program funding at the highest level ever - even higher than during the Cold War – extending nuclear weapons into outer space, into the very atmosphere that makes life on earth possible, and with no "real" enemy in sight.
Wanna bet that this story gets no national news coverage?
