“I am saddened that it is politically inconvenient to acknowledge what everyone knows: the Iraq war is largely about oil.” (Alan Greenspan, in his memoir The Age of Turbulence, as quoted by Bob Woodward in the Washington Post, 15 September)

You meant what you said, Alan. Grow a pair and quit dissembling.

Don't you see? He's a Republican. Republicans never criticize their own until after they leave office. See Lawrence Wilkerson, Colin Powell, etc.

It's party before country for these guys.

My cousin once made (and has continued to make) the same point: the GOP has been operating much like the Soviet party in fact, confusing the exigencies of party politics with matters of state and country.

I don't know of any major political commentators who've drawn that connection.
