"Dumbest Guy On The Planet Rides Again"

“I don’t think the rationale for the war hinged on the existence of stockpiles.” — Undersecretary of Defense Douglas Feith, The New Yorker, 5/9/05


“I’d like to spend a moment, if I can, stressing in particular the crucial task of eliminating weapons of mass destruction. We have begun detailed planning for this task, which includes securing, assessing and dismantling Iraq’s WMD capabilities, its facilities and stockpiles. This will be a huge undertaking.” — Feith, Senate Testimony, 2/11/03

No wonder Gen. Tommy Franks called Feith “the dumbest (expletive deleted) guy on the planet.”
