Richard Cohen - "The Buck Doesn't Stop"

Thought the Richard Cohen column in the Post today captured the hubris of the present administration pretty well. I think he missed the mark to a certain extent - I think their belief in their outdated Cold War rhetoric outweighed their "if the Clintonistas thought so, it can't be right" mantra in causing them to fsck up (whatever the reason, they clearly screwed the pooch). But:

"What is so perturbing about this administration is not that no one of note has resigned or been fired -- and some of them certainty deserve the ax -- but that there is not the slightest hint that anyone (except Colin Powell) appreciates that mistakes were made not out of sheer bad luck but because the assumptions, driven by ideology, were so bad."

Hear, hear.
