For the past several months, the Washington press corps has dutifully reported George W. Bush’s attack on Democrats as politicians who wish to impose their Iraq War judgments on the military commanders in the field.

According to Bush, the Democrats think that U.S. commanders in Iraq should “take fighting directions from politicians 6,000 miles away in Washington, D.C.,” while he by contrast is “a commander guy” who follows the advice of military men on the front lines.

I just watched Powell's performance on MTP and while he assiduously avoided his own culpability in leading the US into Iraq, he clearly laid Bush out for the prevaricator he is. Unfortunately, I think the only folks I'll hear discussing what Powell said today are Bob Parry, Amy Goodman and Randi Rhodes. The MSM will dutifully ignore his truthful criticisms of the chimp-in-chief.
