  •  More bullshit (4+ / 0-)

    That's like saying the failure in Iraq isn't political, it's just a logistical failure. The bombs fall because of gravity so blame it on Newton.

    This is bullshit. If I build a house and fail to maintain it and it falls due to my negligence then I am to blame. It isn't "an engineering failure".

    •  do you know ANYTHING about engineering? (0+ / 0-)

      Sometimes, things break due to reasons that weren't foreseen.  Even key infrastructure.

      I'm an engineer working on critical infrastructure, and it's part of my job to spot weaknesses and points of failure.  And I know things get past sometimes.
