The Soi Disant Rogue Agency

Is it just me, or does does Larry Kaplan have a lil' case of Newt Gingrich p*n@s-envy? Sometimes it really feels that way.... He needs to get around more and knock on a few more doors at the State Department. His depiction of Foggy Bottom as some nefarious rogue agency is so tiresome in its hyperbole and predictability. I mean, it feels like he's written this same article ten times before. Get a new shtick already. Yawn.

UPDATE: As a commenter points out, this is a tad snarky. I owe a bit more by way of explanation. Just give me a day or two given time constraints.

Wow, that's incredibly snooty of you. Not to mention inane.

Not to mention utterly accurate. What has Larry Kaplan every accomplished, again? Oh, that's right: nothing.

Agree with Belgravia here. Let's think of something really original! Let's bash the State Department! Because The Pentagon is doing such a bang-up job of it in Iraq! If the neocons ever had a glimmer of a good idea, the personalities involved (not to mention the implementation) have made everyone who has a reasonably normal personality and ever managed to get a girlfriend/boyfriend flee! Why do they all seem like fat schmucks who can't get a date and are now taking it out on State/CIA/Kofi Annan.
