  •  I do not know the answer to this, but . . . (5+ / 0-)

    an order from the Commander in Chief would seem to me to carry more weight than "requests" from the prosecutors (although I note the story and what it said) . . . let's see what happens.

    •  An order for the prosecutor to make the request.. (0+ / 0-)

      is what worries me.

      It is not an order for a halt but an order made to the prosecutor.

      [you might want to consider adjusting your title, in case the text of the news story is accurate; but that's a small issue - your diary is FANTASTIC!]

      We will restore science to its rightful place....We will harness the sun and the winds and the soil .... All this we can do. And all this we will do.
