Army general made captain of The Titanic

Penguins Employee of the monthHabamus War Czar! Gen. Douglas Lute has been named caddy for the George Bush Desert Classic. Going out on a limb here but I don’t think Lute’s name will wind up in the history books next to George C. Marshall or Henry “Old Brains” Halleck — the best that he can hope for is that it doesn’t end up next to Custer’s. Why not take the job? There’s no real downside. The blame has already been laid. They must be rejoicing in Baghdad tonight.

  1. Actually, nothing has changed except the person in the job. LTG Lute is working in the National Security Council, which manages the interagency coordination under the President anyway.

    This is more a statement about NSC failure to date requiring somebody from outside the loop to do the NSC’s job rather than any radical departure.
