The Other Shoe Falls – On Bush (The Heel)

Bush blamed bad intelligence (not his, by the way, the CIA’s) for his failures while singing his own praises, but now the other shoe has fallen.

“Thomas Fingar, until this week the deputy director of national intelligence for analysis, declined to directly address the president’s swipe. But he said: “I learned something a long time ago in this town. There are only two possibilities: policy success and intelligence failure.”

Fingar “suggested that the Iraq war was as much the failure of policymakers as it was the flawed intelligence on which they relied.”

The Bush enablers always blame somebody else for their failures. And in this case, they blame everybody else’s intelligence but their own.
