Bullets Over Bagdad

Last night I watched Part II of this week's FRONTLINE -- Bush's War. Part I was on the night before.

No sense in you having to slog through all four hours about how we got into the Iraq war, how the Generals didn't have respect for the CIA, who got railroaded by Rumsfeld, who was best buds with Cheney, who had no use for Colin Powell, who got hung out to dry in front of the entire world, while Condi just waited around until Dubya dumped them all so she could take over and tell everybody what they ought to be doing. In short, the last five years can be summarized in two words:

Not Mideast Crisis.

Not Viet Nam.

But high school.

A high school perhaps, but one that had it's foundations in the miserable failings of Jimmy Carter.

Wow.  No doubt Carter was in over his head, but trying to compare his four years to the past eight is unconscionable.  Bush and only Bush (including his cronies, of course) is responsible for the train wreck we've been forced to live through.

Kudos to you for being able to watch the show.  I would've punched the screen within the first ten minutes.
