"Looking back now, the waste of the past decade seems momentous. The miscalculations of the Bush Administration seem stupendous... The war between the militant fantasist Cheney and the largely accurate intelligence gatherers at CIA became a defining chapter of the first Bush term. The wards of military hospitals across the country are filled today with Cheney's and Rumsfeld's handiwork. And now, these same militant nationalists and Israel-obsessed neoconservatives are pushing us toward a war with Iran."
