Ex-Powell aide: Bush 'too aloof'
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Former Secretary of State Colin Powell's chief of staff says President Bush was "too aloof, too distant from the details" of post-war planning, allowing underlings to exploit Bush's detachment and make bad decisions.

Wilkerson blamed Vice President Dick Cheney, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld and like-minded aides. Wilkerson said that Cheney must have sincerely believed that Iraq could be a spawning ground for new terror assaults, because "otherwise I have to declare him a moron, an idiot or a nefarious bastard."

1. That's Not Aloof--It's Batshit Crazy
Let's leave the euphemisms home with the kiddies, shall we? It's time Colin started trying to tell the truth, just to prove he isn't a pod person created by the NeoCon/GOP infestation.
