I think you are giving them to much credit.  I've been on both side of 
the battle( to fit the times and the need) and I feel that less than 10% 
know anything.  This battle between who getts to manage what and in what 
way is going to destroy what they are fighting over.  This started out as 
a battle for funding between govt groups and has escalated to the most 
ridcrdulous mess.  The tree farmer has been caught in the middle and he 
is the least likly to survive and he is doing the best job overall.  The 
Wall Street greed for short term profit can't be controled if those who 
are in charge of long range planning are fighting.
