The Talking Points Memo blog links to a UPI story that I hope all those really smart people who talked the country into the Iraqi adventure, and have done such a great job of managing it, pay attention to what this fellow had to tell Incurious George. Given their pathological hubris I doubt they will.
“At a farewell reception at Blair House for the retiring chief of protocol, Don Ensenat, who was President Bush’s Yale roommate, the president shook hands with Washington Life Magazine’s Soroush Shehabi. ‘I’m the grandson of one of the late Shah’s ministers,’ said Soroush, ‘and I simply want to say one U.S. bomb on Iran and the regime we all despise will remain in power for another 20 or 30 years and 70 million Iranians will become radicalized.'”
“‘I know,’ President Bush answered.
“‘But does Vice President Cheney know?’ asked Soroush.
“President Bush chuckled and walked away.”
