Sounds overqualified for a Bush Appointee

Spencer Ackerman:

I'm working on a quick piece on this right now, so more later, but I just got back from Admiral Bill Fallon's hearing to head Central Command, and I've never heard a military officer testify for nearly four hours and fail to exhibit an understanding of even one issue he's about to grapple with. Anyway, as they say, more TK.

Not exactly comforting -- but on the other hand, usually Bush Administration officials have no fucking clue what they are talking about, and exhibit no understanding of an issue -- but that never stops them from saying they know EXACTLY what the answer will be.
