Low Standards

A report by the Pentagon's inspector general admits that the Defense Department cooked the books in selling the American people on the idea of going to war in Iraq.

The report states that the actions of the Penatagon's policy office, then under neocon Douglas Feith, were "inappropriate," but not illegal or unauthorized. (Not that anyone with a whit of sense thinks they were unauthorized; indeed, they were at the heart of the administration's misinformation campaign.)

Feith says he's happy to hear that he report cleared his office of illegality.

Would someone tell these guys that avoiding indictment is not the standard we are looking for in high government officials?
