    I know, MSM, but they are reporting what was said in a speech by former Powell Chief-of-staff. Not editorializing:
    http://www.nytimes.com/2005/10/21/po...wilkerson.html

    "The comments came in a speech Wednesday by Lawrence Wilkerson, who worked for Mr. Powell at the State Department from 2001 to early 2005. Speaking to the New America Foundation, an independent public-policy institute in Washington, Mr. Wilkerson suggested that secrecy, arrogance and internal feuding had taken a heavy toll in the Bush administration, skewing its policies and undercutting its ability to handle crises."
    .............
    "Mr. Wilkerson suggested that the dysfunction within the administration was so grave that "if something comes along that is truly serious, truly serious, something like a nuclear weapon going off in a major American city, or something like a major pandemic, you are going to see the ineptitude of this government in a way that will take you back to the Declaration of Independence."

    Mr. Wilkerson, a retired Army colonel and former director of the Marine Corps War College, said that in his years in or close to government, he had seen its national security apparatus twisted in many ways. But what he saw in Mr. Bush's first term "was a case that I have never seen in my studies of aberration, bastardizations" and "perturbations."
    ........
    "Mr. Wilkerson has long been considered a close confidant of Mr. Powell, but their relationship has apparently grown strained at times - including over the question of unconventional weapons in Iraq - and the former colonel said Mr. Powell did not approve of his latest public criticisms."

    Must be tough being a repub right now.
    being one of the last Americans still hitting the snooze button....

    I wear a t-shirt with "IMPEACH BUSH" in large letters, both sides, everywhere I go and the positive response is unbelievable. even in the red state of floriduh.

    I heard bush is facing a severe "crony shortage" for future appointments.
    He may appoint Miers as chair of the Fed Reserve Board if she doesn't get a spot with the Supremes... she is about as qualified for that post.

    All that extra time and you still didn't get it right. I'm sure you'll find a way to spin it to be the liberals' fault.

    Too much love in this thread. Where's the right wing outrage?

    This article reminds me of the article (book) from the former FBI director for Clinton. I did'nt put much stock in that one either. But I am glad others take notice of it and it makes them feel good.

    Right. It's all about feeling good. Keep telling yourself that.
