'the First Rule Of Council For National Policy...'

By and

One other thing about that Dobson NYT op-ed that Michelle's already flagged. Notice how Dobson never mentions why he and the "more than 50 pro-family leaders" were in Salt Lake City in the first place. They were there to attend a meeting of a powerful conservative group called the Council for National Policy group--which, as the New York Times reported back in 2004, is so secretive that its "members are instructed not to refer to the organization by name, to protect against leaks." Looks like that policy is still in effect.
