"Bye-Bye, Blockheads"

I had to share a story from today's English-language edition of Spiegel, German's major newsmagazine, kind of the Newsweek of Deutschland. If only the American press would speak so clearly and accurately.

Bye-Bye, Blockheads
By Gerhard Spörl
Appointing John Bolton as US ambassador to the United Nations was truly an irony of fate. And now that phase is finally over. The neoconservatives are finished in the United States. It would be interesting to know how Bolton, Wolfowitz and Rumsfeld feel today about what they have done in the Middle East.
Does anyone remember Paul Wolfowitz? He was that clever little man with the soft, slightly monotonic voice, the man who believed the Iraqis would welcome US troops as their liberators. He was the Pentagon's No. 2 man, the then secretary of defense's deputy, and he now heads the World Bank.
