Thoughts on the Retirement of Douglas Feith by Karen Kwiatkowski

I never regretted not having a retirement ceremony, given the neoconservative hijack of my place of employment, the Pentagon and the intelligence process. There would be no end-of-tour medal, because my nomination package was still sitting on Doug Feith’s desk when my first mainstream media criticism of the Pentagon business hit the Knight Ridder newspapers in early August 2003. I’m not sure which was better reading – my list of achievements as a staff officer in OSD, or my coming-out missive. My list of OSD achievements, in typical civil service style, was expansively exaggerated. In retrospect, my coming out missive was understated and careful.
