"Douglas Feith is sad - silence, please..."

Doug Feith's feelings are hurt, or so writes M.J. Rosenberg [June 20, 2008] at

Rosenberg continues: last Wednesday, Feith withdrew from a House hearing on interrogation methods used on detainees because he would not sit at the same witness table as Lawrence Wilkerson, who was Colin Powell's chief-of-staff. According to Feith's lawyer, the former undersecretary of defense objected to certain things Wilkerson (and Powell, in fact) had said about him. For example, in 2006 Wilkerson accused Feith of being a "'card-carrying member of the Likud party' whose allegiance is to Israel rather than the United States." Then Wilkerson went on to say, "seldom have I met a dumber man [than Feith]."

Danz View: Poor Dougie, feelings kinda hurt are they; you poor whittle fellow. Here have a Kleenex, pull up a chair, have a seat, relax and listen to a story.

We have over 4,500 killed in the two wars that you pushed. Over 30,000 have been wounded, most of them with nasty lifetime wounds. Another 30,000 or so have been evacuated out for various injuries and disease and about 20 soldiers a week are committing suicide. Then on top of that, the VA has let them down with pretty piss-poor treatment like at Walter Reed. So, we know how awful you must feel about that, too, especially since you pushed for the invasion of Iraq, and now you are not in power to see that mess come to a real "Mission Accomplished" state. So, yes, we know how those nasty names can hurt you - kinda like a roadside IED, aren't they? Here, have another Kleenex.

So, come back before the House committee when you are all nice and composed. Then you can tell the public, under oath of course, just how you really feel about the war and all those nasty names people have called you.
