Fred Burton, who morphs from a mediocre Montgomery County Policeman to a super agent of the DSS (now doesn't that outfit have a scandalous history???) really remained mediocre, at best, but a real story teller, if promoting one's self while still sounding like an idiot is real story telling? Burton is one of the few Americans left today who actually believes in the "lone gunman" theory of the JFK assassination. He "solves" the sabotage of a Pakistani aircraft takedown, which was taught in the School of the Americas, so it wasn't particularly original - - one wonders if Burton could have applied it to the tragic deaths of Sen. Paul Wellstone and some of his family members? Guess not? Won't learn anything from this clown, except perhaps the hiring practises at the DSS aren't to be emulated, and if Stratfor is the "shadow CIA" we are all in trouble - - of course, we really are in trouble!
