This blog is still alive, just in semi-hibernation. When I want to write something longer than a tweet about something other than math or sci-fi, here is where I'll write it.

If only we had listened!
This is Douglas Feith, who was part of the Office of Special Plans under Donald Rumsfeld. What was the Special Plan? Why, invading Iraq, of course! Silly hypothetical question asker, that you should have forgotten so soon.
Mr. Feith has written a memoir about the run up to the Iraq War, where the people in his Office were the only ones listening seriously to the bullshit artists like Curveball who told us Saddam had every bad weapon conceived by the mind of man and was planning to make new, even worse ones. Guess what his memoir says?
It's somebody else's fault that Iraq is such a colossal goat fuck!
Wow, that's a surprise! The problem was that he, genius Douglas Feith, was cut out of the picture, much as I have cropped him out of his official picture. Who was given power that would have better been entrusted to him?
Spooks and colored people.
No, that's not redundant. No ancient racial epithets are being used. Spooks as in the CIA, who dogged his brilliant work at every turn, and colored people like Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice, who didn't do their jobs very well, spoiling the Special Plans Feith and Paul Wolfowitz had dreamed up.
If only every public official was as brilliant and dedicated as Douglas Feith!
And if only we had enough jails to house them all now!
