The Feith Defense Continues

Scout e-mailed me with Doug Feith’s new web site.

You can laugh, go ahead.

Seriously, I’ve seen 15-year-olds’ Livejournals that aren’t this much of a desperate cry for validation.

My favorite section is his “news coverage”page, otherwise known as The Idiot Brigade Thinks I’m Awesome:

A conversation with Douglas J. Feith, February 2007

Of all of that mess, leaving out the interviews of Feith and the pieces he himself wrote, only Howell can be considered a mainstream source, and he’s basically citing her correction as a bit of positive commentary, which is pathetic. There’s no assessment of his tenure by anyone other than the usual “Bush ROOLZ Kerry DROOLZ” crowd. You know, the people who greeted the news that he hadn’t done anything illegal with virtual wavings of a big foam finger. Those guys.

How hard up are you for praise when you’re taking it from Hugh Hewitt and RedState?

  1. I will make an attempt to reread any facts that are forthcoming from Feith. However, I currently am critical of the role he played as a government worker. I am shocked that anyone would think that in a democracy you can set up an agency to circumvent our CIA. Taking secret information and twisting it for nefarious purposes – to illegally support an illegal war- is illegal. All the characters in the OSP office (and most in the administration) deserve to be charged with treason. But I’ll try to keep an open mind.

  2. Feith is happy to quote Gen. Pace on his patriotism. He omits what Gen. Franks said about him. “Feith is the dumbest fucking man on the planet.”

  3. I suggest we forget about this guy. However we do need to remember how he and the other new “Watergate Plumbers” were able to hijack our foreign policy into what may become or allready is the most perilous hour the nation has yet encountered.

  4. My favorite e-Doug moment is his assertion that it would be wrong for the CIA to be insulated from criticism by policymakers like Feith’s Office of Special Plans, because (paraphrasing) the CIA is often wrong — just look at their pre-war analysis on Iraqi WMDs! That’s just a tornado of hypocrisy, dishonesty, and chutzpah.
    On the other hand, I kinda almost feel bad for Feith. It’s getting hotter and hotter for him, he’s one of the most despised people in the U.S., and his troubles are, I suspect, just beginning. I suspect his lack of a comments area or contact info isn’t just an oversight.

  5. Yep…the “media myths v. facts” section is funny beyond words …

  6. damn you attaturk!!! that was gonna be my funny!
    I’ll now have to settle for pointing this out:
    ” Mr. Feith helped plan the worldwide changes in the U.S. defense posture”
