Condoleeza Rice has told the 9-11 commision that President Bush "fully understood" the threat posed by Al Qaeda.

Oh, I'm sure he did! Every bit as well as he understood how many troops it would take to occupy Iraq, or the potential dangers posed by renegade pretzels.

Do you remember what General Eric K. Shinseki said over a year ago? He predicted that several hundred thousand soldiers would be needed in order to effectively occupy my country. His estimates were immediately pooh-poohed by Deputy Secretary of Infidel Invasions Paul Wolfowitz.

That's what happens when you put civilians, who think they're smarter than the generals, in charge of the military.
