That said, how can these bleary eyes be considered remotely fresh? There is something to be said for times changing and failed ideas of the past being rejected for a different sort of approach and solution. These men (and one woman, cryptically a judge - she is an expert on foreign policy now? Was Elizabeth Dole not available?) have had their chance in the past to deal with, confront, and handle the issues we're facing now. They had their day of power, their time to solve the trouble we face.J-Pod has a nice comment, snicker, as well.
Almost without exception they are members of former administrations, administrations that to a man failed to deal with the issue of terrorism or contributed to their rise, power, and confidence. It's not that they are old, it's that their age is iconic of their past and their previous failures. These aren't fresh eyes, they are failed, discredited eyes.
This is the consensus view of the Iraq Study Group, which is very proud that it reached consensus.
Its members also reached a consensus view that Depends is a really fine brand of adult diaper, and that they love reruns of "Murder, She Wrote."
