More Presidential honors for screw-ups: Tenet and Bremer get medals. First Bush keeps Rumsfeld and his neo-con true believers, promotes Alberto Gonzales, the legal mind behind our pro-torture policies, to Attorney General and then builds a cabinet of other yes-men to continue the administration's disastrous policies. Now he honors the man -- George Tenet -- who kept the CIA asleep at the wheel before 9/11 and said WMDs were a "slam dunk," and Paul Bremer, whose early decisions, such as disbanding the Iraqi Army, helped pave the way for today's insurgency. What's next? A Congressional Medal of Honor for Pvt. Lynndie England, the leering, cigarette-smoking abuser of Abu Ghraib?
