Nice Work if You Can Get It

Step one: Retire from the military.
Step two: Get a job as a "military analyst" for a TV news channel.
Step three: Participate in a special public relations program sponsored by the Pentagon, in which the military feeds you pro-war talking points.
Step four: Repeat those points on the air, while the networks pay you for providing "independent analysis."
Step five: Parlay your access and TV fame into a military contracting gig which, by the way, benefits from the war you're supposedly assessing as a dispassionate, neutral observer.

Read about this and much more in today's great New York Times story about these craven, incestuous creatures - the TV military analysts.
