A Real Kick in the Whatever It Takes. 


Regarding the Iraqi prisoner abuse scandal and other strategic and tactical blunders:

A Special Forces officer aimed higher, saying that "Rumsfeld needs to go, as does Wolfowitz."

Asked about such antagonism, Wolfowitz said, "I wish they'd have the -- whatever it takes -- to come tell me to my face."
Washington often looks and sounds like playground politics, but this is somewhere around sixth grade level. No, fifth. Note to Wolfowitz: I wish you and other top administration officials had the -- whatever it takes -- to admit this whole thing has been a huge mistake right from the start.
