I TOLD YOU SO! | 2002-03-16

No diplomatic person would just say, "I told you so." No decent person would say that.

It's the sort of thing you depend on me to do.

So not only will I say it, I will rub it in by reprinting what I wrote on September 11. Please note that the above article, written six months later, is exactly what I said would happen.

If you want the CIA to work, clean it out. If you want the DIA to work, clean it out. If you want the INS to work, clean it out. If you want programs that work, clean out the universities where all the policy disasters originate.

That is ALL we should be telling everybody in charge.
