Bodansky's book is riveting and a direct response to the cool aid drinkers of both the left and right. Saddam and terrorists were tied at the hip and the WMD were moved to Syria . However US intelligence blundered in every single assesment. Unlike Bodansky I do not see the war as a permanent debacle . If and when we can get an Iraqi army in the field we can go home. The other option is to divide Iraq into three or more governable states. Why the Bush administration stopped a Russian coup that would have ousted and killed Saddam is unknown but stupid if true.
The CIA has been under attack for the longest time. The dumbocrats have chosen to cater to seditious far left Chomsky types rather then look out for the American people. The ultimate betrayal of the people was by Robert Toreceli who was trying to impress his Communist girlfriend Bianca Jagger. Torecceli thinking with the wrong head passed legislation that made it next to impossible to recruit human intelligence
unless they were boyscouts.
The hiring practices of the CIA and the State Department must also come under scrutiny. When a far left Commie anti semite is allowed to remain on the job and influence government policy it is time for a change. The fact that a person like Ray McGovern was allowed to work in the CIA means it is time for reform. The fact that the agency was misrun and abused in eightg years of the Clinton era is also a problem.
The answer is that there should be an immediate purge of all far left types at the State Department. The current practice of hiring people with Social Science degress
from elite universities is a failure. A person with eight years of Marxist brainwashing is not likely to have the faculties for the job. The American people would be better served by the placement of people with business degrees and experience in the corporate world. The cloak and dagger of major corporations is a better training ground then reading Chomsky in a class led by a Woodstock refugee.
I am returning to NYC so I will not get to post until tommorow. I am only in for a long weekend.
Will someone get the insurance on that deer ?
