"The war was a mistake, but I want to see a person solve the problem they created," said Alex Cole, a Republican who at 49 was involuntarily retired after being forced out at Lucent Technologies.

Now that might be okay in a business, where a manager wants the chance to evaluate an employee's ability to adjust to adverse circumstances and perform a turnaround. But it's an irresponsible attitude when related to the pResident of the United States, who has responsibility for the safety and prosperity of hundreds of millions of countrymen and inordinate influence over the fortunes of the rest of the world. And even in business, such a tactic could only safely be applied to a lower-level employee -- no competent manager would risk the company's fortunes on a human resources experiment.
