James Lileks on the Democrats and the “fall-out” of Rumsfeld’s memo:

“It’s not an “admission of failure, ” as Daschle put it—hell, the administration could put Osama’s head on a stick in the Rose Garden, and Daschle would call it an admission of failure that they hadn’t located the torso. I will never trust these people with national security again. Never, never, never. We’re in the fight of our lives, and all they can do is carp and bitch and piss and moan, because—as was the case with many conservatives in the Bosnian conflict—it’s not their war.”
