Another Richard Perle
Why the continuing subterfuge and irresponsibility? In today's Washington Post article on expanding the war beyond Afghanistan, Perle is identified as "a Pentagon official in the Reagan administration who is close to many members of the Bush administration."
As we've noted repeatedly in recent posts, Perle is a member of this administration. I know this is a matter of definition. But for my money when the Sec Def appoints someone chairman of a key policy oversight committee, which comes with an E-Ring office and salary, that's being in the administration, period.
When will this man realize the rules apply to him too? And when will someone (anyone!) call him on it?
Neo-cons may not like Colin Powell but don't they like loyalty and the chain of command? And just when I was going to praise Bill Kristol's excellent piece in the Weekly Standard Online!
