An AP story published on Yahoo news today underscored what many Americans have believed for months. The report by an Iraqi government insider, Ali A. Allawi, uses the terms "monumental ignorance", "rank amateurism" and "swaggering arrogance" to describe the American invasion and occupation. How well all of these descriptions characterize the Bush administration in general, in particular the "swaggering arrogance" so typical of the right wing. I'll never forget Bush, and his ridiculous, highly affected John Wayne walk across the lawn of the White House at one of his first public appearances after being inaugurated. What a buffoon.
