Scrubbing bubbles. An S.C. Johnson trademark, but who else conceptualizes a good scrub? [SEE: final UPDATE]


After reposting an earlier crabgrass item showing a Dorsey law firm's scrub of Ramsey Town Center from its capability tout page (see: 2-page image capture, here and here), the thought was web scrub would not be a subject again, for a while.

Well, tracing steps, this link was one in the post directly below this post [highlighting added to screencapture, but an interesting excerpt, in toto]:


Screencaptures show links, but they are not live links; the highlighted one linking here, but don't bother, it gives a 404 document not found error. That report authored by Flynn and others is cited several places on the web, each giving the same broken link; including CFR here, and here and here.

Internet Archive did not produce archived records when accessed for

https://www.cnas.org/

which may be a generic request from the site to not be archived, or an error just now, in the search attempt, this browser, etc.

In any event, if a reader knows of an online copy of that item, please in a comment give the link.

There is this Aspen item authored by Flynn, a 40 page pdf item, archived here in case it too gets scrubbed, but there is enough to get the mood, if not the detail, of the Flynn critique of the intelligence community's orientation/capability - so that knowing that means you know the gist of their having grounds for a grudge exists, and is crystal clear (even despite the detailed report having suffered a present apparent online demise).

The scrub is most unfortunate, given how the man's position on issues may be relevant evidence of his position as a key Trump security advisor might have been impacted; one position axed over somebody besides Trump disliking the other position. Curious, and not encouraging trust in internet decency being a respected rule, among some.

NOW, YOU TELL ME, WHAT ELSE IS AT PLAY BUT A BALD-FACED SCRUB WITHOUT APOLOGY, BUT WITH INDECENT INTENT SEEMING TO BE ALL OVER IT? SILENCE MAY BE GOLDEN, BUT TO WHOM IN THIS INSTANCE, AND WHY?

__________________________________________________
UPDATE: In giving you a "Meet the Bubbles" link, don't expect some intelligence agency link. Plain old S.C. Johnson promo stuff, where the firm fails to identify its best product for internet page scrubs, but reader web search might find that too. Perhaps the same place that Flynn report might be located as still on the web?



______________APOLOGETIC FURTHER UPDATE______________
It sometimes amazes even the elderly, how the best of theories fall under the sunshine of truth.

NOT A SCRUB. FUN POSTING, BUT A RELOCATION, ON THE ACTUAL WEBSITE WHERE ALL THE DEAD LINKS POINTED.

The Flynn et al. item is online, at a different CNAS link; per the homepage; linking to the actual full Flynn item; here.

There is wisdom to read/search fully, first; write later. Doing that means less frequently making an ass of oneself.

AFTER ALL THAT EFFORT, SOUND AND FURY, YOU HAVE THE LINK SO READ THE REPORT, PLEASE. AND CUT SOME SLACK, DEAD LINKS CAN REALLY ENRAGE.
