WASHINGTON – President Bush is losing his top day-to-day adviser on Iraq, the White House confirmed Monday.
Meghan L. O’Sullivan, who has played a key behind-the-scenes role in implementing Bush’s controversial Iraq policies over the past four years, will leave later this spring.
Her departure, which follows that of her deputy, could leave the White House with a vacuum of long-term experience on Iraq policy, and it comes as Bush and the Democratic-controlled Congress prepare for a showdown over withdrawing U.S. troops.
O’Sullivan, 37, known for her 100-hour work weeks and steady optimism over the eventual outcome in Iraq, said in an interview that with the completion of months-long reviews of policy in Iraq and Afghanistan – which she also oversees – she felt it was the right time for a change.
Wonkette Writes: Hotty McRedhead Quits White House, Still Lies About Iraq
Bye, Hottie McRedhead – Wonkette
One of the Bush Administration’s top Iraq bumblers is quitting after four disastrous years. After fucking up everything from the pre-invasion plans to the provisional government, Meghan O’Sullivan will give up her current post as deputy national security adviser for Iraq and Afghanistan, she announced Monday.
What next for the wonk who put the “sexy” back in Endless Horror and Outrage? Obviously she’ll go right to work for Halliburton in the company’s new Dubai headquarters, where she’ll be far out of reach of American Justice … assuming, for the moment, that American Justice will someday return from its long holiday.
O’Sullivan told the Washington Post: “I’m leaving with enormous confidence in the strategy and the very, very strong belief that this is the right strategy at this time. It’s the strategy that has the best prospect for success.” And then she burst out laughing a lit a cigar with a hundred-dollar bill.
