I know you’re probably tired of this game, and can guess where it’s going, but it’s so hard to resist…
What pinko-liberal-“blame America firster” said the following?:
High level incompetence seems to be the natural sea-state of our militarized foreign policy, launching forth with the proud Guardsman George W. Bush at the helm and Dick “Other Priorities” Cheney as navigator.
This track record of sheer stupidity, hubris and other seagull qualities [swoops in, makes a lot of noise, craps all over everything, leaves abruptly. -ed.] is marred only by the existence of rare officers, like retired Marine General Tony Zinni, who knew their job, led their men and women, and spoke the truth to power about the inanity of the plan to invade Iraq early on. Looking further for aberrations to the rule, we find retired Army General William Odom, conservative through and through, who speaks the truth about Bush’s fantasy adventure in Iraq, politely but publicly calling it “a strategic error.”
Apparently Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld missed the lecture called “Nobody wins a shitstorm.”
