  •  When Congress specified that "terror suspects" (3+ / 0-)

    were to be hunted down wherever, with no U.S. boots on the ground, assassination by remote control with drones and hellfire missiles became the only option. Congress does that a lot. I call it rule by exception. Given five options they rule out all but one and that one becomes the exception. It doesn't even have to be mentioned and nobody has to take credit for having made a choice.
    Sole source contracting is effected the same way.
    In hiring practices it's not discriminatory because nobody is shut out; just one particular candidate is ruled in, meeting all the qualifications specified.
