The President of Cabal

Sidney Blumenthal, writing in The Guardian, on what Paul O'Neill's revelations might mean for the Bush administration:

"...O'Neill's persuasiveness and the long-term damage he does ... comes from his years in the Nixon and Ford administrations and his first-hand critique of a government radically unlike any before, especially Republican ones. O'Neill's threat is to a president unusually dependent in an election campaign on fear and credibility to sustain a sense of power and inevitability. He sounds an alarm against an unfit president who lacks 'credibility with his most senior officials,' behind whom looms a dark 'puppeteer,' as O'Neill calls the vice-president, and a closed cabal...."
