the libby thing is a real head-scratcher. why him? why now? especially since his sentence was already commuted.Not sure if this was answered in any of the following two pages because who has time for reading but its because the president is a child and Libby was convicted by Comey. Its really as simple as that.
maybe it's to "show" how supposedly corrupt the fbi and doj are?
please memescape this and also remove all other memescapes in fact just make this the forums background tia

imo he's actually one of the better academic writers but it's still academic writing.Oh I know me some academic writing

I bet his footnotes are really dry and take up pages by themselves.Actually, on the topic of early US history, do you have any recommendations for books on the early settlement through the Indian War?
i'm not really sure what you mean by "the indian war" but since you're framing it that way:
Facing East from Indian Country and Before the Revolution, both by dan richter. be warned these aren't really written for general consumption (i.e., they're written for other turbonerds).
Thanks, will order them up from the book pit
A people's history of the United States.Have that one, but its been decades since I last read it. Will check the relevant sections when I get home, thanks PD
iirc, a young George Washington almost single-handedly started the French and Indian wars by being a brash idiot.
there were tensions there, but diplomatic discussions underway to ease them. Washington was sent to meet the French emissary. instead of meeting as agreed, Washington randomly (?) decided to attack the french. after subduing them, one of his Mohawk guides, apparently not on the same page as Washington, killed the French diplomat and ate his brains. the French government didn't respond well to that and war ensued.
Was this before or after the French started building their chain of artificial islands from Quebec to England for a massive sneak attack?
oh my god.Going to have to read this.
"yeah more compromise to ease partisan deadlock, you know, like the 3/5th compromise" is political gallows humor for historians, not a real ideal holy shit
