Cross "Implementation and Execution Manager" off Stephen Hadley's list

after it becoming a national joke, bushco pushes ahead with an incredibly stupid idea... i bet stephen hadley is so-o-o-o-ooooo relieved (see below)...
After a frustrating search for a new "war czar" to oversee the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, ABC News has learned that President Bush has chosen the Pentagon's director of operations, Lt. Gen. Douglas Lute, for the role.

i fully expect the situation in iraq will start to markedly improve in only a matter of a few short days...

here's from my post back on april 30...

Mr. Hadley is interviewing candidates
, including military generals, for a new high-profile job that people in Washington are calling the war czar. The official (Mr. Hadley, ever cautious, prefers “implementation and execution manager”) would brief Mr. Bush every morning on Iraq and Afghanistan, then prod cabinet secretaries into carrying out White House orders.

ooooooo, it's so exciting...! a real WAR CZAR Implementation and Execution Manager...
