Hmm - I wonder if the families consider their loss "negative".

Brilliant architects?  Read H. Norman Schwarzkopf's biography for his 
take on Cheney, and Cheney's "brilliant" ideas for orchestration of 
Desert Storm.  Cheney's sole concern was his own political image.

Cheney and Rumsfeld are both ego maniacal lunatics - and they are 
boobs. They are a disgrace, and I shudder when I think that my son 
spent years of his life under risk of their architecture.  "Blessed" 
is not the first word that rushed to mind.  In fact, that word hasn't 
made it yet - except for the fact that Rumsfeld is gone.
