Douglas Feith, SEE YA!
http://www.juancole.com/#110689334571682204

Feith is clearly resigning ahead of the possible breaking of major scandals concerning his tenure at the Department of Defense, which is among the more disgraceful cases of the misleading of the American people in American history.

There are several downsides to Feith's departure, as welcome as it is for anyone who cares about US security in particular. The first is that now we probably have to see him forever on cable news channels as one of those dreary neocon talking heads flogged by the American Enterprise Institute, a far rightwing "think tank" funded by cranky rich people to obscure the truth. Another is that his departure now may help keep Bush from being blamed for his shady dealings in intelligence "analysis."

1. I won't be missing the man.
Several other people deserve strong blame for the lying-to-get-us-into-war skulduggery, but Feith, taken alone, stands out as a sort of unprincipled nihilist.

As he arrived, he leaves with a very high Yuck Factor.
