Well, if you don't like my opinion, ask one of THEIR guys

This reported in The Shrill Blog, a quote* from General Tommy Franks talking about Doug Feith, Rumsfeld's Undersecretary of Defense:

Franks' opinion:

"I have to deal with the fucking stupidest guy on the face of the earth almost every day. "

Shrillblog goes on:

How stupid is Doug Feith? Chris Suellentrop writes: "Feith intentionally excluded experts with experience in postwar nation-building, out of fear that their pessimistic, worst-case scenarios would leak and damage the case for [the] war [on Iraq]... did not participate in CIA war games about the occupation, because 'it could be seen as an "antiwar" undertaking'.... The State Department's Future of Iraq Project... dismissed by Feith and company out of hand.... Last September... Paul Bremer's request for more than 220 employees for the occupation had yet to be approved.... 'It is taking forever because Feith only wants true believers to get through the gate,' a senior administration official said."
