‘Radical hawk’ Cheney aide resigns.


David Wurmser, “Cheney’s chief adviser on Middle East affairs and perhaps the Bush administration’s most radical hawk,” is reportedly leaving his position for the private sector, “where he will start a risk-consulting business.” In 1996, Wurmser, along with Richard Perle and Douglas Feith, wrote a plan for how to destroy Hezbollah by invading Iraq.
