How many died because his mouth was open?

How many lives did "analysts" like Barry McCaffrey cost as they added fuel to the fire of Iraq War hawks by talking up the war's "success" and the need for more and more armament, while all the while they were shilling for companies they represented?

Just last week McCaffrey appeared on the NBC Nightly News as a "military analyst" to advocate beefing up security forces in Afghanistan without bothering to disclose his financial interest in just such a measure.

But there's oh so much more! Also, check out my post for Nov. 30, which has the links for David Barstow's investigative report in last Sunday's, New York Times.
