Wrong war, wrong time, wrong strategy

Or so said General Zinnin, on "60 Minutes" last night.

“There has been poor strategic thinking in this,” says Zinni. “There has been poor operational planning and execution on the ground. And to think that we are going to ‘stay the course,’ the course is headed over Niagara Falls. I think it's time to change course a little bit, or at least hold somebody responsible for putting you on this course. Because it's been a failure.”

What most infuriatedd Zinni was the fact that "no heads have rolled."

And Brad DeLong asks, if Bush is really planning an overhaul of his cabinet for his "seconod term," why not overhaul it now? If it's a failure, will waiting another six months improve anything?

As Al Swearengen, Ian McShane's character in Deadwood, said the other night, "Ad fucking hoc."
