Well, this is the biggest story in recent memory. None of Paul O’Neill’s revelations will surprise anyone who’s been paying attention for the last three years or so, but it’s good to see a former Bush administration official saying what they really think about what goes on in the Bush White House. The bombshell here isn’t that the President was talking about getting rid of Saddam, but that O’Neill makes it clear that the White House is run strictly on an ideological and political basis rather than on a basis where rational analysis is used to solve the problems of the day. Whether you’re a Democrat or a Republican, that sort of leadership is damaging to the country.
