Ron Suskind on the White House & the 1% Solution

Ron Suskind appeared on "The Situation Room" to talk about his new book  "One Percent Doctrine," and said:

• the US took out Al-Jazeera office in Kabul purposefully
• the CIA determined OBL wanted W re-elected
• The president made the decision to rely on local forces to get Bin Laden in Tora Bora, over the CIA's explicit objections (They specifically told the president the local forces weren’t capable and shouldn't be relied upon, and we should nail him ourselves).

Pretty astounding stuff:

Anyone catch Frontline about Cheny and Rumsey last night? It may have been a repeat, but it was still pretty fresh stuff. They titled it "The Dark Side." LOL
