Eric Alterman perfectly captures why President Bush and his administration deserve to be sent packing:
Clearly the evidence was confusing. Clearly it was easy enough for even experts in the field to misread in either direction. But because these Bush ideologues wanted an invasion they read it only one way and worked overtime to de-legitimize anyone who sought to question them. That is the point of phrases like: “no doubt… There isn't any debate about it…. [It is] beyond anyone's imagination… know for a fact…sure he does… leaves no doubt…. No question…. No doubt…. Absolutely sure.”
For this colossal lack of judgment, every single top administration official deserves to be fired or lose his or her job. But in fact not only has no one been so or done so, the only people to leave the administration were those who insisted on telling the American people the truth.
