Black Water

A couple of years ago I attended a CPAC conference in DC where one of the featured speakers included Jeff Baxter, former member of some of the better 70's bands including Doobie Brothers and Steely Dan - both of which were groups I used to really enjoy listening to a hundred years ago when I was a mere college student.

But Baxter is no ordinary entertainer, he also is a brilliant defense consultant for the DOD having been involved in numerous black projects for the government. Fellow RI blogger, Kellipundit, flagged a recent interview with Baxter in the WSJ:

In an interview with
The Wall Street Journal Online on May 24th, we learn that Jeff Baxter does more for his country than just entertain.
The guitarist-turned-defense-consultant does regular work for the Department of Defense and the nation's intelligence community, chairs a congressional advisory board on missile defense, and has lucrative consulting contracts with companies like Science Applications International Corp., Northrop Grumman Corp. and General Atomics Aeronautical Systems Inc. He says he is in increasing demand for his unconventional views of counterterrorism.
Republican congressman Curt Weldon of Pennsylvania, who has worked with Jeff comments:
"Most of Hollywood is from the liberal,'let's hug the tree and be warm and fuzzy and sing Kumbaya,'bent,"....."You put Jeff Baxter up against them, and he cleans their clocks because he actually knows the facts and details." He has appeared in public debates and given numerous press and TV interviews on CNN and Fox News advocating missile defense. He also served as a national spokesman for Americans for Missile Defense, a coalition of conservative organizations devoted to the issue.
My kind of guy.
