Cementing his stellar reputation

You probably recall that former Undersecretary of Defense Doug Feith was named "the dumbest fucking guy on the planet" by no less an authority than General Tommy Franks. On the off chance that you think Franks was unneccesarily harsh, take a gander at this:

Senior U.S. officials contemplated striking Hezbollah targets in South America after the Sept. 11 attacks.

A top-secret memo uncovered by the Sept. 11 commission recommends hitting reputed Hezbollah targets in the area where Argentina, Paraguay and Brazil meet, Newsweek reported Thursday.

The memo, which the commission attributes to former defense undersecretary Douglas Feith, suggested such an attack would catch the terrorists by surprise and have a “ripple effect” on other terrorist groups.

The underlying presumption was that terrorist groups were allied in a network, although since then, no Al-Qaida-Hezbollah connection has emerged.

You know what would have surprised the hell out of them, Doug?

Actually, we should have finished off NYC, and lobbed some nukes into LA, SF, DC, Miami, Chicago and Boston after 9/11. If we had taken out all of OBL's prospective targets, now that would have really thrown him off his game.
