Drumheller, Bush, Kerry

While picking my jaw up off the floor after reading this TPM post, it occurred to me that the admin keeps demonstrating my lack of imagination and acumen. I had long thought that there were multiple reasons for the war, WMDs being only a unifying one and useful as a selling point, and that they had assumed we would find (if not a major program) enough shreds of half-baked or old stuff to point to while they established the Chalabi regime. But that there was something so cut and dried as a report heard by Bush/Cheney/Rice of a high-level leak in the Iraqi govt disputing the WMD claim would not have occurred to me.

I wonder what John Kerry is thinking tonight. If this had come out before the election, it would have made (so it seems to me anyway) a devastating ad. If I were running for office today, I'd put that soundbite up over a picture of my opponent shaking Bush's hand. So I also wonder what Drumheller was thinking last year.

All it takes for evil to succeed is for a few good men to stand aside and do nothing.

Just sayin'

Exactly the quotation that has been going through my mind of late.
