Rats aboard USS Neocon begin making other plans

Look who’s talking now.

Fukuyama:

“[G]overnment is too weak – I think we are due for a big swing back in the other direction. We need to rebuild areas of the public sector.”

“This bridge that collapsed in Minneapolis – that wasn’t an accident. There has been systematic underfunding of public works and infrastructure for decades.”

“Obama is the only one of the candidates who can escape the polarisation” of US politics to find real solutions.”

Tough times ahead for Leo Strauss disciples. Fukayama knows which way the winds are blowing. Maybe his pension funds were invested with Bear Stearns and he’s hoping to build a new nest egg with Obama or Brookings.

Meanwhile, back on the short bus, fellow neocon and “fucking stupidest guy on the face of the earth” Doug Feith:

Mr. Bush gave his speech at the Army War College on May 24, as Iraq was entering into the last month of its 14-month occupation by the U.S. The president declared: “I sent American troops to Iraq to defend our security, not to stay as an occupying power. I sent American troops to Iraq to make its people free, not to make them American. Iraqis will write their own history, and find their own way.”

I had hoped the president would explain why sending American troops to Iraq had helped defend our security, but he did not. The questionable line about sending those troops to make Iraq’s people free had remained in the speech. And it was rather late to be promising the Iraqis that we would not stay as an occupying power but instead let them find their own way.

Feith may be angling for a job in a future John W. McBush administration, but I don’t see any such future for his former colleague…

Li’l Scotty McClellan:

“History appears poised to confirm what most Americans today have decided — that the decision to invade Iraq was a serious strategic blunder.”

“No one, including me, can know with absolute certainty how the war will be viewed decades from now when we can more fully understand its impact. What I do know is that war should only be waged when necessary, and the Iraq war was not necessary.”

Ouch. That last one must have really stung.
