Full of Shi'ite (Part Two)

There are times (more frequent than not) that the Bush administration gives a feeble attempt to cover their collective asses, and it comes off looking, well, feeble. Take Condi Rice's recent response to former President Clinton's description of how his administration attempted to eradicate Osama Bin Laden and his loyal followers, and left a comprehensive plan for Bush when he took over the White House.

According to Condi, the Bushies were not left "a comprehensive strategy to fight al Qaeda" and that "big pieces were missing, like an approach to Pakistan that might work." The Peach would like to remind Condi that according to Pakistan's President Pervez Musharraf, a major portion of that "approach" was to tell him "Be prepared to be bombed. Be prepared to go back to the Stone Age." The Peach wonders if Bush needed the former President to leave that as part of the "strategy" in order for it to be "comprehensive."

Yet, The Peach isn't going to speculate if that's one of the pieces Condi is referring to, let alone what she exactly means by "comprehensive strategy." But, knowing this administration, The Peach can only guess that some of the other missing pieces she's alluding to were whether or not to buy Boardwalk and/or did Professor Plum do it with the lead pipe in the conservatory.
