Okay, this is pretty bad. This is incredibly bad.
A new panel formed by Congress will second-guess Iraq War strategy and reconstruction. It will be chaired by James A. Baker III and Lee Hamilton, and will include former CIA Director Robert Gates; former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, a Republican; former Clinton adviser Vernon Jordan; former Clinton Chief of Staff Leon Panetta; former Clinton administration Defense Secretary William Perry; former Democratic Sen. Chuck Robb; and Alan Simpson, a Republican former senator from Wyoming.
Whoever heard of a freaking war being fought with a committee second guessing it? Whoever heard of a war that is not full of twists, turns, surprises and adustments.
This is the STUPIDEST thing I have ever heard of, and the fact that Rudy Giuliani is on this incredibly UNBALANCED panel brings little comfort. He’s not going to be able to sit on these people, not when all of them will be struggling to be come the next media whore and “maverick”.
Hugh’s question is a sound one: Which GOP-lead commission let this happen? Hello, GOP? read this. Every word applies. You’re out of chances. The buzzer is sounding, and you lose.
Un. Freaking. Believable. I’m praying it’s a mistaken report or something.
