"Stuff Happens"

Were you under the impression that during a time President Bush characterized yesterday as "World War III," the public would deserve at least some official explanation for why the head of the CIA quit/was fired suddenly without a successor in place? Think again. Here's Goss clearing things up:
Porter Goss said Saturday that his surprise resignation as CIA director is "just one of those mysteries," offering no other explanation for his sudden departure after almost two years on the job.
Shamefully nonchalant, profoundly unserious. Kind of sums up the last few years, doesn't it?

World War III -- that must explain the absence of military conscription, the less than one percent of the population serving in the military, the one-twentieth of one percent of the population actually serving in the war zone, and the economy that isn't on a wartime footing in taxes (we've had tax cuts), production, or domestic rationing and sacrifice. That must explain the secretary of defense who shrugged and smirked, when asked why soldiers were inadequately equipped, and says that, hey, you go to war with the army you have.

Imagine a ranking leader explaining a major setback in WWII by saying that "stuff happens."

If they think it's WWIII, they have a really funny way of showing it. So do they not believe what they say, or do they believe it but can't live up to it?

I just saw some good spooks on Late Edition today, and they are talking about how severe the threat from al Qaeda remains. There will be a transcript later today. Also, Clark Kent Ervin has an Op Ed in the Wa Po that is worth noting.

Bin Laden said in January that the next hit was coming. It's early May.

Wanna know what sums up the last few years? This:

"Bush's best moment in office? Reeling in big perch

BERLIN (Reuters) - U.S. President George W. Bush told a German newspaper his best moment in more than five years in office was catching a big perch in his own lake.

"You know, I've experienced many great moments and it's hard to name the best," Bush told weekly Bild am Sonntag when asked about his high point since becoming president in January 2001.

"I would say the best moment of all was when I caught a 7.5 pound (3.402 kilos) perch in my lake," he told the newspaper in an interview published on Sunday. [...]"

"Shamefully nonchalant, profoundly unserious....", you said it.
