Foreign Policy Under Dubyah

First let me give credit where credit is due. I was pointed towards this by an article written by Slate Webzine's Timothy Noah.

Col. Lawrence Wilkerson, USA (Ret.), who is a former Chief of Staff of the State Department under Colin Powell in the Dubyah Administration recently made a speech to the New America Foundation. This speech, in its entirety, can be found here. It makes for an interesting read, that is if you are at all interested in how the Dubyah administration goes about making decisions.

As for me, I want to thank Col Wilkerson for speaking up. If he has any further personal ambitions he is probably shooting himself in the foot, but still he speaks his mind. America is well served by men of courage and conviction like Col Wilkerson.

Col. Wilkerson is only saying what many of us already thought about the Dubyah administration. However he, due to being a former insider, can speak with authority.

If we can ever get Colin Powell to run for President, I would hope he still finds a suitable place for Larry Wilkerson to serve. Perhaps Larry Wilkerson would even make a fine Vice President.

I encourage you to read the speech yourself, and see if what Larry Wilkerson has to say rings true or not.
