Via Politico, we get an excerpt from
Big Little Dick Cheney’s book:
“On Tuesday morning, May 22 ,” Cheney writes, “a David Ignatius column appeared in the Washington Post titled ‘After the Surge: The Administration Floats Ideas for a New Approach in Iraq.’ It quoted administration officials on the need to revamp policy in order to attract bipartisan support and to take into account the fact that the surge might not have the stabilizing effect we had hoped.
“I was very concerned when I read the piece, and I raised it with the president in the Oval Office. ‘Whoever is leaking information like this to the press is doing a real disservice, Mr. President,’ I said, ‘both to you and to our forces on the ground in Baghdad.’ … ‘We have to correct this, particularly with our generals in the field.’
The leak was authorized by his genius boss. And how ironic is it that the Dick was concerned about a leak.
Ah, the bad old days….
Speaking of bad days, as I type this, we’re coping with Hurricane Irene. GW claimed he couldn’t have imagined the breach of the levees during Katrina. Well, hey, we couldn’t have imagined Bush’s breach of so many laws during his presidency.
