Why Oh Why Are We Ruled by These Liars?

Like calling someone who runs a company's in-house travel department the COO:

Ron Suskind, The One Percent Doctrine, p. 101: The first application of the new rules... would be to Zubaydah.... [T]he value of his capture had already been oversold... and Zubayda wouldn't talk. Tenet was pushing... for a surprise... which he could then deliver to Bush--evidence that would, after the fact, support [Bush's] public statements....

"Around the room a lot of people just rolled their eyes.... Bush and Cheney knew what we knew about Zubaydah.... It was like calling someone who runs a company's in-house travel department the COO," said one top CIS official.... What they'd soon realize was that this was [Bush's] management style. A way, as he would often quip, to push people "to do things they didn't think they were capable of."

Impeach George W. Bush. Impeach him now.
