I *think* the rule is the contractor can take 10% of your rate, the subcontractor can do the same, and the rest must go to your salary and benefits.
The workers are often full-time employees of the contractor (e.g., General Dynamics IT). They get benefits along with their salary.
Of course he didn't wear a condom -- they prevent leaks!
Do you not remember Hans Blix? Inspectors were in Iraq, checking out sites given to them by U.S. intelligence, and they were finding nothing. The U.S. warned the U.N. inspectors to get out because the invasion was imminent.
While Iraq did expel inspectors in the '90s, we effectively expelled them -- while they were doing their job and trying to warn us there was nothing to find -- in order to effect our invasion.
Also, I'd like you to substantiate your claim that Iraq could have secreted all their contraband nuclear processing equipment in a couple of days. The number of centrifuges alone would have taken a serious amount of planning and execution, with U.S. satellites watching all the while. Don't you think Colin Powell would have liked to go before the U.N. with something better than aluminum tubes (which weren't part of any nuclear program)?
Not within the cloud itself. Incompleteness and all that.
But don't an equal number of opportunities exist for the contrary side? Wouldn't Exxon be willing to sponsor a whole scad of research grants if it disproved climate worries? Wouldn't a researcher who proved AGW was a hoax be bathed in media attention, career opportunities, etc.? With good enough research, couldn't journals be shamed into publishing?
Anyone foolish enough to think they'll advance their careers with false science will be caught out soon enough.
