A view from inside of Pentagon decision-making

This is terribly out of date (well, 6 weeks, anyway) but I am working through my backlog of things to blog and I thought it was just too important to let pass. "Pentagon decision-making flawed", an opinion piece written by a retired US Army Lt. Col., says that as an insider in the DoD/Pentagon, when she came to experience the decision-making processes of the new Bush Pentagon "what I saw was aberrant, pervasive and contrary to good order and discipline." She identifies three "prevailing themes" in the internal culture of the organisation that propelled the world into the Iraq war:Functional isolation of the professional corps, cross-agency cliques, and a predominant "groupthink" mode of communication. Frightening.
