Anatomy of Decisions Part The SecondIn an earlier post I suggested that the Bush administration might suffer from a poor organization of the decision making process. Specifically, I was concerned that agreement, unity and domestic political strength were being emphasized over vigorous debate and an engagement with the full body of evidence.
Some of my friends had suggested to me in conversation that Powell might disprove my tentative hypothesis. After all, he appears to have been willing to step up to the neo-cons and create dissent (in a very quiet and dignified way). Perhaps the Bush administration was better than I feared.
So much for that theory.
Is anyone out there reading this move in the same way I am?
