With apologies to Tommy Franks, that description fits Alberto Gonzales even better than it fits Doug Feith:
Mr. Gonzales has been portrayed by critics both as unqualified for his position and instrumental in laying the groundwork for the administration's "war on terror." He was pilloried by Congress in a manner not usually directed toward cabinet officials.
"What is it that I did that is so fundamentally wrong, that deserves this kind of response to my service?" he said during an interview Tuesday, offering his most extensive comments since leaving government.During a lunch meeting two blocks from the White House, where he served under his longtime friend, President George W. Bush, Mr. Gonzales said that "for some reason, I am portrayed as the one who is evil in formulating policies that people disagree with. I consider myself a casualty, one of the many casualties of the war on terror."
Gonzales is a victim only in the limited sense that such a pathetically unqualified troll (Bush calls him "Fredo") should never have been appointed to positions of such prominence that his stupidity and incompetence would inevitably become notorious. In this sense he is not a casualty of the War on Terror™. He is a casualty of George W. Bush, whose own incompetence blinds him to the incompetence of others.
