Kissinger Bails


Henry Kissinger has quit as chairman of the panel President George W. Bush charged with investigating the 9/11 attacks.

Now will someone admit this White House had a lousy personnel week? It seems that Karl Rove decided that going for long-in-tooth, "Washington hand" candidates was foolproof.

Not so. Especially in the case of Kissinger who obviously, obviously would have had to throw open his private consulting biz to scrutiny. But Henry says no dice, which makes you wonder if anyone ever really talked to him about the job.
