Forum: The Situation Room > Taylor administration conspiracy nomenclature

We currently have a fairly solid article, Taylor administration conspiracy, and a corresponding category, about the bribe-takers in Season 7. The issue is, there is strong evidence that Dubaku/Juma corruption started in the Daniels administration. It just came to light during Taylor's presidency. Therefore I don't think it is objective to call it using the current nomenclature. A better focus for the words would involve "Juma". How about "Juma's moles in America" or something?

I myself don't have a problem with the term "taylor Administration conspiracy", though it has been a while since I saw series 7. I don't know how american politics works in an administration change and how much the people get replaced, but surely all of the moles within the presidential administration couldn't have been recruited before Taylor took office? So although the plan was put into motion when Daniels was in power, the actual government part of the conspiracy only infected Taylor's administration rather than Daniels' one.
Also I forget what the grand plan of the conspiracy was, but wasn't the goal of it to undermine whatever administration was in power during Day 7 (which happened to be Taylor's)? So the point of the conspiracy was to undermine Taylor's administration, even though the plan was started before she took office. Anyway like I say I may be wrong on the facts of this, but I don't see an immediate contradiction in keeping the nomenclature the same.--Acer4666 09:20, April 19, 2011 (UTC)
I should have mentioned: none of the people in the conspiracy are executive branch administrators. Every identified person is part of an attached law enforcement group (FBI and Secret Service agents like Hillinger and Gedge would never be called part of a "president's administration"), or Congressional staff (who are part of the legislative branch, which is separate from the executive branch). With this in mind, it doesn't actually matter when people were corrupted or under whose administration the government was supposed to be compromised.
In seeking to rename this I'm very open to other ideas since I don't have any strong ones at the moment. Blue Rook  talk  contribs 19:28, April 19, 2011 (UTC)
I'm kind of unsure exactly what the conspiracy was meant to achieve, other than help them do their terrorist stuff. Were the people working for Starkwood or the Juma regime? Having read that page, I would be tempted to call it "Starkwood conspiracy". I think the words "moles" is a little too colloquial for an article title like this--Acer4666 19:43, April 19, 2011 (UTC)
