But Does Cheney Know?

David Seaton points to a disturbing discussion between Bush and an Iranian expatriate:

At a farewell reception at Blair House for the retiring chief of protocol, Don Ensenat, who was President Bush's Yale roommate, the president shook hands with Washington Life Magazine's Soroush Shehabi. A grandson of one of the late Shah's ministers, Soroush said, "Mr. President, I simply want to say one U.S. bomb on Iran and the regime will remain in power for another 20 or 30 years and 70 million Iranians will become radicalized."

"I know," President Bush answered.

"But does Vice President Cheney know?" asked Soroush.

The president chuckled and walked away.

Unfortunately it is becoming clear that malevolent intent lies behind the Bush Administration's Middle East policy. If you discount malevolent intent nothing makes sense. If you factor in malevolent intent then everything falls into place. So if you want to be rational, as opposed to patriotic, then you have to look seriously at that possibility.
