Rats on a sinking ship

It doesn’t bode well when someone as disliked and discredited as Paul Bremer comes out smelling like roses compared to Dubya.

A previously undisclosed exchange of letters shows that President Bush was told in advance by his top Iraq envoy in May 2003 of a plan to “dissolve Saddam’s military and intelligence structures,” a plan that the envoy, L. Paul Bremer, said referred to dismantling the Iraqi Army.

Mr. Bremer provided the letters to The New York Times on Monday after reading that Mr. Bush was quoted in a new book as saying that American policy had been “to keep the army intact” but that it “didn’t happen.”

The only possible explanation must be that Bremer has succumbed to Bush Derangement Syndrome (BDR).
