Observer III

At the Commission on Wartime Contracting hearing today, almost all witnesses seemed several degrees of hapless, clueless, uninformed, and not taking responsibility. The witnesses seemed inert to any lessons learned from the debacle in Iraq "reconstruction." Every official and agency active in Afgh. seemed to be "learning."

The Corps of Engineers general was perhaps the worst, but he was not cleverly evasive and was pleasant in a folksy way. The AID gentleman seemed peculiarly under-informed and jumpy. The Commissioners were ever so gentle--actually, far too polite, and they did not probe and follow-up their own questions sufficiently.
