Dumb and dumber?

This from Harper's Weekly review. These are the guys who are supposed to be smart enough to be running things?

Weekly Review - Aug 12, 2003: Harper's Magazine:
Exhibit A: "L. Paul Bremer, the American overseer of Iraq, said he thought the bombing was carried out by 'outside' forces because he wasn't sure the 'ex-regime people' who have been shooting U.S. soldiers had the know-how to make a car bomb."
After all those WMD, he thinks nobody knew how to make a car bomb? Jeeebuz, guys, at least tell us the good lies.
Exhibit B:"General Richard Sanchez said that he was scaling back aggressive roundups of Iraqis in the search for Saddam Hussein and Baath Party loyalists because he was afraid that 'maybe our iron-fisted approach to the conduct of ops was beginning to alienate Iraqis. I started to get those sensings from multiple sources.'"
I feel sooo much better knowing he's getting this from "multiple sources".
