Former special assistant on terror: aWol is aWol (as usual)

No surprise to readers here, of course. Go read.

Beers quit his job as special assistaWol aWol on ant to the president for combating terrorism eight weeks ago. On Monday, in a provocative interview with the Post, the veteran Washington bureaucrat – who served on the National Security Council under four presidents – lashed out at the administration's handling of the war on terrorism and homeland security.

Beers charged the administration "wasn't matching its deeds to its words in the war on terrorism. They're making us less secure, not more secure. … The longer I sat and watched, the more concerned I became, until I got up and walked out."

aWol's words don't match his deeds? Who knew?

(This is the source Krugman mentions below).

Only thirty seconds to post this, but I can't find the interview at WaPo or at Google news. Perhaps an alert reader could post? Au revoir...
