Douglas Feith Joins the Georgetown Faculty; Chilly Reception

"United States Army General Tommy Franks, according to Bob Woodward's 2004 Plan of Attack, described Feith as the "fucking stupidest guy on the face of the earth" (p.281). "

"In 2005, Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson, chief of staff to then Secretary of Colin Powell, publicly stated he could "testify to" Franks' comment, and added "Seldom in my life have I met a dumber man."

Douglas Feith served as W's undersecretary for defense. He resigned in August, 2005. He has been discredited on many accounts and the Pentagon is currently undergoing an investigation of his promotion of the a link between Saadam Hussein and Al Queda. He joined the Neoconservatives in the 1990's and has promoted their short-sighted policies on US global domination. Georgetown University has assigned him to teach a class on the...:"Bush Administration's Antiterrorism Policy." He is quite the hustler(read the Wikepedia bio) amid Republican administrations and a testimate to the perks of being a good lap dog and idealogue within the right circles.
