I’ve quoted a part of this fantastic article here, but the real kicker is the last paragraph. If nothing else, humour me and read that.

This has been the Bush pattern. Treasury Secretary Paul O’Neill presciently says a second tax cut is unaffordable if we want to fight in Iraq–he’s fired. Bush’s economic adviser Larry Lindsey presciently says the war will cost between $100 billion and $200 billion (an underestimate)–he’s fired. Army Gen. Eric Shinseki presciently says that winning in Iraq will require several hundred thousand troops–he’s sent into early retirement. By contrast, CIA Director George Tenet, who presided over two of the greatest intelligence lapses in American history (9/11 and WMD in Iraq) and apparently helped spread “oppo ammo” to discredit the husband of a woman who had devoted her life to his agency, receives the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
