Seriously, what chain of command?

chain of command cover

While Sy Hersh takes a more objective view of things than Suskind, the view from his pen doesn’t get any better. In fact, it gets more and more depressing for me. Preemption, the Cheney Doctrine and Transformational Diplomacy, meet Islamo-Facism. You’re long lost cousins just that you don’t know it. Yet. Or maybe you’re so deep in denial you can’t bring yourself to see what you really look like in the mirror. Hersh writes about more than innocence lost; he charges the Bush Administration with wilful deceit, misuse and squander of every political, military, intelligence and relational asset the US had prior to 9/11. Reading this, one wonders if it’s only a matter of when, not if, charges will be brought on key members of the Administration when all the shit dies down. If it dies down.
