War Advisors


Reports today's Washington Post (without naming names):

[T]here is a behind-the-scenes effort by former senior Republican government officials and party leaders to convince President Bush that the advice he has received from Vice President Cheney, Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld and Deputy Defense Secretary Paul D. Wolfowitz—a powerful triumvirate frequently at odds with Secretary of State Colin L. Powell—has been wrong and even dangerous to long-term U.S. national interests…

"The only one who can reach the president is his father," one former senior official said. "But it is not timely yet to talk to him."

  1. Dubya’s a wimp – after all, he didn’t bother to show up for his whole Reserve obligation. (What a patriot). He is, undeniably a wimp.

    But when it’s other people’s lives at stake, he’s got all the balls in the world.

  2. man this is increasingly becoming like a crappy star wars episode.

  3. Hey – stop picking on star wars.

  4. Anyone who takes his case to the WaPo is not exactly looking out for the President whatever the situation. Pretty standard method of Washington not-beanbag I’d say.

  5. These are the same guys that brought us Gulf War I with disastrous results. Bush 1 was a wimp and his son is not. Enough said.

  6. Trying not to be a wimp also has its potential negative consequences.

  7. These comments suck. But I came here not to make that comment, but to say this about the quoted piece: Who are these unnamed sources? “One former senior official”? “Behind the scenes effort” “former Senior Republican government officials” unnamed “party leaders.” Sounds like a bunch of horse shit to me. I think either these sources are made up by WaPo, or should be disregarded b/c they’re too chickenshit to put their name to their quote.
