Organizational dysfunction

Hilzoy at Obsidian Wings reads the recent articles in the Washington Post about Vice President Cheney and makes some cutting observations.
These articles should be assigned to management classes as studies in what not to do. They describe the exact sort of decision-making process that reliably leads to disaster, and the kinds of personal dynamics that enable it. It's a model of complete organizational breakdown, and it should be studied for generations to come, so that it is never repeated.
This is very reminicent of the George W. Bush: Bad CEO thesis I was blogging about a few years back.
