we have an edit war regarding this politico article. the politico article title claims carson's story in his book about meeting general westmoreland and being offered a scholarship is now an admitted "fabrication".

1) ALL upperclass students at service academies are on scholarship in exchange for service committment 2) some underclass students are also on scholarship, which the politico article doesn't deny (see: "per se") 3) carson never admits to any "fabrication" in the politico story, but this was added as fact to the wiki story 4) carson never claimed to apply to west point, yet the politco story implies he did claim that 5) the fact that carson was colonel in jrotc and met westmoreland is not disputed 6) the fact that carson met with others at west point is not disputed 7) the article does not claim to know what carson discussed with any of the above 8) carson never "concedes" to politico anything, yet this word is then added to wiki story as fact and reverted to without explanation. 7) the reversions being made by mimi c. do not contain any comments as to why, just reversions 8) the edits i, "christo1234", made regarding the politico story were all objective facts, but are subsequently deleted by the reversions which contain false subjective opinions like "concedes" and "fabrication", etc

Political positions too long?[edit]

I just feel that they take up too much of the article in light of the biography not being that long and that they should either be condensed or removed in their entirety. Informant16 7 May 2016

I am unsure what you mean. Would you care to clarify? Is there an edit you want made, etc.? Gargantuan Brain (talk) 23:27, 8 February 2021 (UTC)[]
