Revolving Door

Kevin Drum talks today about an article over at TNR about the tendency of Bush's counterterrorism chiefs to quit in disgust. I don't know if I'd say 'disgust' (having not actually asked them their reasons for quitting) but it does seem odd that nobody can seem to stand the job.

I've often questioned the wisdom of Bush's strategy. Moving away from the pursuit of bin Laden and devoting all his resources to Iraq was a really, really stupid idea. There have been wrong turns after wrong turns, PR disasters and, well, more PR disasters. Either these counterterrorism experts are either really stupid, or really ignored. Who'd want that job?
