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.
