Who is to say anyone here agreed with Iran-contra? Status quo is not a valid excuse.

It's not an excuse, it is the reason that you were wrong.

Wrong about what? The crooked politics happening in the oval office?

There's no way to interpret this point that makes a good counter point to what you were told.
The case against Clevinger was open and shut. The only thing missing was something to charge him with.

Will Obama label Taliban attacks as "workplace violence"?

You are wrong about it being some long standing tradition not to negotiate with terrorists. Whether the politics behind it is crooked, whether people were/are outraged or not is irrelevant.

You made the claim that we don't do that. You're wrong. That line you gave is nothing but politician stump speech material.

Now, we don't always. But we do sometimes. Situations determine the approach we take.
Put your hands down. Take a deep breath. Get back to work.

I'm pretty sure that 'we won't negotiate with terrorists' has never been an actual thing the US government as a whole gave a damn about. It is one of those things people think they give a damn about thanks to movies and **** and now they have to sort of pretend they care because if they don't people get all angry and go 'why are you breaking the law and negotiating with terrorists'.
I mean, i never see the right bash the left on anything because the blame game causes more issues than anything-Josh

I was puzzling over how to interpret it as anything but a non sequitur.

Dude dems went bonkers of Iran-Contra . Talk about convenient amnesia.

Iran-Contra was a scandal because the Reagan administration's actions (both the sale of weapons to Iran and the provision of money to the Contras) were specifically forbidden by law.
A bad enough dude to save the President.
