What war czar?

By Libby

Hell, until Steve Benen reminded me, I forgot we even had a new war czar. I suppose I can be forgiven since he dropped out of sight immediately after confirmation.
And that’s it. Since taking over NSA Stephen Hadley’s responsibilities for Iraq and Afghanistan, Lute has not been interviewed on CNN, Fox News, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, NBC, or PBS. He has not appeared on any national radio show. He has not been quoted in any newspapers.

Perhaps most importantly of all — maybe he’s media shy? — Lute has not been mentioned by Bush, Cheney, or Tony Snow, in any capacity, since he was confirmed by the Senate.
I guess rubberstamping the Great Decider's decisions leaves you with a lot of free time. He's probably at the beach. I hear it's hot in DC this time of year.

Ok, now I know we DCers have a tendency to all leave for vacation in August, but it's not August yet. Maybe he's just sitting back and waiting for the September report and trying to figure out how it'll be spun to sound positive?

Good point lapopessa. Maybe he's just hiding out in an undisclosed location.
