JMM looks into the Bush proposal for an intelligence czar and finds that it has a... well, the 're-arranging the Titanic deck chairs' thing has been done to death. How about 'last call on the Hindenberg'? No, that's not it. Anyway, Bush's proposal seems to do absolutely nothing, while studiously avoiding dealing with the structural problems inherent in the current DCI set-up, as the 9/11 commission saw them.

This isn't just the Bushies saying one thing while doing another. This is them actively working to keep the status quo while creating the illusion of constructive change. This is them, in effect, sabotaging the effort that's been made to correct the problems that lead to 9/11.

We've moved way beyond the administration simply not admitting their mistakes with this one.
