News: War Czar named!

And we now have a war czar!

Or, to use the proper title, a new assistant-to-the-president-and-deputy-national-security-adviser-for-Iraq-and-Afghanistan-policy-and-implementation (which is actually longer than the TD definition). For sake of brevity, use the acronym, ATTPADNSAFIAAPAI. Or "war czar." Or "war scapegoat."

Lt. Gen. Lute will act as a go-between, coordinating the President, Secretary of Defense, National Security Adviser, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and CENTCOM in formulating and implementing a comprehensive war strategy for Iraq and Afghanistan.

I suppose if he runs into trouble, the president will have to name an assistant-to-the-assistant-to-the-president-and-deputy-to-the-deputy...implementation, to get all the principals on the same page.

And if that doesn't work ...

Your spelling out of the acronym got truncated...

Lute is a fine, fine choice in keeping with all the rest of the psychopathic war criminals. Back in March he blithely intoned american forces have all the rights to enter Pakistani territory for whatever reason they cared to come up with. Whereupon pissed off Pakistani officials said "WTF? No foreign forces are allowed to cross over our territorial border."
Another splendidly incompetent, arrogant asshole, or SIAA lording over us.

Hardly a choice ... he was one of the few stupid enough to take the job.
