Its 10.49, Do You Know Where Your Money Is Going?

Reading Helen Thomas I was struck by the highlighted words.
Don't expect any dramatic recommendations from the Iraq Study Group led by Baker and former Rep. Lee Hamilton, D-Ind. The nine men and one woman on the panel are cautious Washington insiders who got picked for the job because of their don't-rock-the-boat reputations. After all, they might want to get asked again, sometime in the future, to serve on another White House commission.

Gonna ask a rill dumb question. Why? Is it for power, influence a sense of duty or is it money? My rill question: Do we pay such "study groups" and if so, how much?

I always thought the US government had "study-types" on payroll like the CIA, State Department, Pentagon. Why in hell do they need to hire outsiders if not for PR? Just asking.

Oh yeah, won't make a difference. Bush will do whatever his pea-brain thinks is best.
