Response to randome (Reply #90)

100. Really? OK, I'll do the due diligence for those readers who will just take you at your word.

A former Congressman from Nebraska is definitely covered by "filled with nuclear scientists, past Cabinet secretaries, and former members of Congress…"

You're being extremely misleading. I'll go one by one, if that helps.


  • Hon. Gary Hart: was the chairman of the Threat Reduction Advisory Council.

  • Hon. Charles B. Curtis: this one's easy. He was "Senior Advisor to the Center for Strategic and International Studies, President Emeritus of the Nuclear Threat Initiative and former Deputy Secretary of Energy". I don't think I need to provide links for those.

  • Hon. Graham Allison: "Director of the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs ... at the Kennedy School of Government"

  • Amb. Brooke D. Anderson: "served ... on the Iran Nuclear Negotiations"

  • Hon. Douglas Bereuter: former Republican Congressman from Nebraska (I guess Nebraska congressmen don't count as congressmen?)

  • Dr. Bruce Blair: a professor (oh look, a scientist!) and co-founder of Global Zero, an organization devoted to bringing about a "world without nuclear weapons". According to Wikipedia, he is a "nuclear security expert and a research scholar at the Program on Science and Global Security at Princeton University's Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs"

  • Amb. Linton F. Brooks: a researcher (ooh, another scientist) and advisor "on national security issues", who worked on the Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (link included in case you've never heard of it)

  • BGen Stephen A. Cheney: among other things, former "Deputy Executive Secretary to the Secretary of Defense, and Inspector General of the Marine Corps". Seems like he might have relevant experience to me, though perhaps you'd like to research this one a little more.

  • Mr. Joseph Cirincione: this is one of the ones you were disdainful about. He's the president of the Ploughshares Fund. If you had googled it, you'd see that it's pretty relevant. Their landing page says, "Ploughshares Fund supports the smartest minds and most effective organizations to reduce nuclear stockpiles, prevent new nuclear states, and increase global security." I wonder if running an organization like that gives him some useful experience and perspective?

  • ...



There are quite a few more, but I'm bored now. I guess it's clear that you actually read the whole list and then decided to misrepresent it, since you referenced the only hedge fund manager, Robert Rose, "President of Robert Rose Consulting, LLC and former Senior Advisor to the Chairman of Bridgewater Associates, one of the largest hedge funds in the world". I'll concede that he seems out of place. I wonder if he had a similar deal with somebody in Clinton's administration, or if it was someone previous to her. Actually, it's possible that he's a new addition, since this is the list of current members.

If you'd like to look through the rest of that list and point out the members that you think are comparable in terms of irrelevance to a securities trader, I will gladly discuss it with you. If not, I'll assume you're just being intentionally misleading and we can leave it at that.
