Sy Hersh paints a pretty damning picture of the Bush White House in its rush to war. There are strong lessons to be found here about what happens when you have a chief executive whose only source of information is his advisors, and those advisors have absolute faith in their own rectitude.

If you've ever gotten stuck talking to a dittohead at the company picnic, then you know the type: He's right; you're wrong, and any information source that contradicts his preconceived notions is wrong, usually because it's part of the liberal media. Now imagine a whole bunch of those guys running the country. No wonder things are so fucked up.
