Wanted: One War Czar

On the one hand, the White House is furiously searching for a savior. Someone – anyone – who can lead them out of the wilderness of Iraq.

Obviously General Sheehan was right. They don’t know where the hell they are going. So the MBA president is doing what every failing executive does – adding a layer to the metric. Ask the CEO of AirTouch how that worked out.

At the same time they are casting wildly about, they are insisting that the Congress can’t have any say, other than “yes” votes for blank check war funding resolutions, of course.

I call bullshit.

We don’t need a War Czar, but I’ll toss an idea out there that I could get behind.

Commission a joint House-Senate committee to over see the war and put Jim Webb in charge of it. They don’t know where they are going? We will show them the way.
