Quote of the Day: "...otherwise I have to declare him a moron, an idiot or a nefarious bastard."

Yes, that was Larry Wilkerson, Colin Powell's former chief of staff at the State Department, referring to Vice President Dick Cheney in an interview with the Associated Press today. He said this in concluding that Mr. Cheney must have known with certainty that Iraq would turn into a spawning ground for terrorists.

Clearly, Mr. Wilkerson holds Cheney, Rumsfeld and the other neo-cons in utter contempt for how they have promulgated this war. He also holds President Bush accountable for allowing others to control the post-invasion aspects of the war. And, no doubt, Mr. Wilkerson is echoing the thoughts of his former boss, Colin Powell.

I applaud Wilkerson for not holding back and being willing to speak his mind about the utter mess this administration has created. Perhaps Powell will eventually feel the same duty to speak out. As more former insiders begin to shed light on this administration's incompetence and malevolent approach to international relations, hopefully Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, et al, will start to be held accountable by the media and the American people.
