Get a rubbermade Tub and some 3tab folders / expandos and you will be all set!

Observation 2: Iran strike 1.) The war with Iran will come by the end of the Bush administration-Rumsfeld has already decided that an attack on Iran is necessary to promote American democracy in the Middle East and enlarged the operations of the Pentagon at the expense of the CIA. Seymour Hersh, staff writer for the New Yorker, 1-31-05, The New Yorker [“What the Pentagon can now do in secret,” Kyle] 2.) Rumsfeld’s Intelligence operations will produce miscalculations by Iranian Government-Even the Military is worried about it Barbara Starr, spokeswoman for the Pentagon, 2-15-05 [http://Http://web.lexis-nexis.com/universe/document?_m=d6c40d9dfdd0437229e5c139e86649ce&_docnum=1&wchp=dGLbVlb-zSkVb&md5=0376fled560433d3af25821baa9a921a] 3.)
