Rummy's Last Memo

TomDispatch has a fabulous close-reading of Rummy's Last Memo, which includes great advice like:

Begin modest withdrawals of U.S. and Coalition forces (start ‘taking our hand off the bicycle seat'), so Iraqis know they have to pull up their socks, step up and take responsibility for their country.

I'm picturing a hapless kid trying to pedal and pull his socks up as his witless Dad shouts instructions. The Bushies are never far from negligence, if not outright abuse.
