the CAMP ENRON Report

... gateway to the next Progressive Era?

Some say it's nothing but a train wreck ... roll in the big cranes, clear the track, see what the crew's been smoking. If I thought so, I'd not be writing this ... and if they thought so, they'd not be drumming so hard.

(2) All "major" articles of older material have now been imported, some with updates worth perusing. We'll keep it all on the main page for a while, will add a few loose pieces of history, will trim the main page and index the archives for convenience later.


free agent, loose cannon, pointy stick ... taking an imposing analytic toolkit out of the box, over the wall and into the street ... with callous disregard for accepted wisdom and standard English

reading the tea leaves from original angles, we've led with uncannily prescient takes on the federal surplus, the dotcom crash, the "Energy Crisis", the Afghan campaign, the federal deficit.

More where those came from ... stay tuned.

Many thanks to Tony Adragna and Will Vehrs, still shouting 'cross the Potomac at QuasiPundit. Early Camp Enron material can be found in QP's Dispatches department.

--- Darkness Shadows White ---

Joshua Micah Marshall has us primed for a Public Cititzen bunker buster concerning Army Sec'y Thomas E. White, Jr. Hmmm. Could this be a "smoking gun" document in the Fort Hamilton energy privatization fiasco? From 2002-03-10 NYT
"There was some perception that Enron was able to negotiate out of the contract some of the terms that were the reasons why other potential bidders decided not to go forward"
Or a revelation that White had a bite of one of those Chewy partnership vehicles? Or something more about White's foot-dragging in ENE stock divestiture? Or an "I know what you did last summer" criminal probe creeping up on him in connection with his Enron tenure?

Do we need a smoking gun? Isn't it enough that White's a poster-child nominee for both the Capitol revolving-door syndrome and Dilbert's "clueless boss" syndrome?
