    which is why he made those statements, I believe. But I have no way of convincing anybody of that--it's just my experience with military officers that tells me these guys are very politically savvy.

    North is a mystery to me--I never understood him. I only know he seemed to do rather well afterwards.

      North was actively promoted in the media and is making out very well.  

      Either way he likely takes a fall, if Obama fires him or accepts a forced resignation,  which seems likely, then he's out.  Is he out because he can't keep his mouth shut and its a personal flaw, or is he out because he was asked to speak out and will be rewarded for it.   The first choice is likely to be the picture painted if he just went off the reservation.
