Colin Powell's aide speaks out.

Here's an article from another ex-insider. Interesting how when Richard Clarke came out last year, he was villified. Now the criticisms are coming so fast and furious, the Bush administration has no time to denounce them.

It's a personal and scathing critique that spotlights what now seems obvious; the Bush administration assumed they could do whatever the hell they wanted without considering the needs of anyone else in the world. Wilkerson does try to give the administration the benefit of the doubt, stating:

Lawrence Wilkerson said that Cheney must have sincerely believed that Iraq could be a spawning ground for new terror assaults, because "otherwise I have to declare him a moron, an idiot or a nefarious bastard."

Gee Lawrence, why not all three?

I'm sure the administration will conjure up some story about Wilkerson in time. They've been officially on the defense (counter-attack) for a few weeks now. But you're right: the shitstorm's getting thick.

They're going to bad-mouth so many people, that in time it'll be Cheney and Bush locked inside the lock box inside the secret location watching O'Reily and listening to Rush for the news. There's going to be no one left to demonize!!!!

That's right, Dave. And then, trapped in the lock box in a secret location, they will learn to love. And it will be on: tenderly, sweetly -- lovin', touchin', squeezin' each other. Every, every day-eee-aye.
