Hard to understand what has happened to some of the people associated with this administration.

IG George once had a stellar reputation for honor and integrity.

Nuland worked for VP Cheney.

IG George also dated Michelle Obama after College and Nuland worked for Clinton before the Bush WH.  Remember Bush, unlike his predecessors, did not clean house at State or Justice when he came into office.

For McCain, at least, there may be a personal connection.

Nuland's husband:
In 1983, Robert Kagan was foreign policy advisor to New York Representative Jack Kemp. Between 1984 and 1986, he worked at the State Department Policy Planning Staff and was a speechwriter for Secretary of State George P. Shultz. From 1986 to 1988, he served in the Bureau of Inter-American Affairs at the State Department.[citation needed] In 1997 he co-founded and served as a director for the now-defunct Project for the New American Century.[1][2][5]

Kagan has been described as a neoconservative foreign-policy theorist,[6][7][8] although Kagan has adamantly rejected being labeled as a "neoconservative".[9] Kagan describes his foreign-policy views as deeply rooted in American history and widely shared by Americans.[10]

Kagan spent 13 years as a Senior Associate with the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, before joining the Brookings Institution as a senior fellow in the Center on United States and Europe in September 2010.[11][12][13][14][15] He was a foreign policy advisor to John McCain, the Republican Party's nominee for President of the United States in the 2008 election.[16][17]

Kagan and Bill Kristol are tight too, as co-founders of the New American Century.

Is Graham McCain's poodle?  That limp-wrist nancy-boy has his nose so far up McCain's ass he can see daylight.
