Hmm. Clinton's Starting to Look Pretty Good in Retrospect, EVEN to the Military!

Very important editorial in the Houston Chronicle yesterday by a retired Air Force Lieutenant Colonel who thought Bill was a jerk until she ran into Dubya and the chickenhawks. To wit:

What I saw was aberrant, pervasive and contrary to good order and discipline. If one is seeking the answers to why peculiar bits of "intelligence" found sanctity in a presidential speech, or why the post-Saddam occupation has been distinguished by confusion and false steps, one need look no further than the process inside the Office of the Secretary of Defense..... ...Groupthink, in this most recent case leading to invasion and occupation of Iraq, will be found, I believe, to have caused a subversion of constitutional limits on executive power and a co-optation through deceit of a large segment of the Congress.

Read the whole thing. It's important. And especially pass it on to your military friends.
