“Larry Wilkerson, a retired Army colonel and former chief of staff to Secretary of State Colin Powell, publicly broke with the White House after Powell resigned at the end of Bush’s first term. …he told The Washington Post in early [January 19] 2006: ‘This is not a Republican administration, not in my view. This is a radical administration.’ …’This is really a very inept administration,’ Wilkerson added. ‘I think it is probably the worst ineptitude in governance, decision-making, and leadership I’ve seen in fifty-plus years. You’ve got to go back and think about that. That includes the Bay of Pigs, that includes–oh my God, Vietnam. That includes Iran-Contra, Watergate.’ ”
