Condi back on the job. Oh, great!

I love this from Think Progress. Remember in Ocotober of 2003 Bush appointed Condi head of the "Iraq Stabilization Group" with the authority to manage postwar Iraq and the rebuilding of Afghanistan?

As we know, THAT didn't work out so well, did it? Seven months later, the Washington Post wrote that a search of the White House website revealed no public mention of the Iraq Stabilization Group since back in October 2003.

Today the Financial Times reports that "[t]he White House formally gave Condoleezza Rice authority on Wednesday to take the lead in planning and reconstruction efforts in conflict areas such as Iraq.

As Think Progess suggests, her first task, no doubt, will be to clean up the mess the Iraq Stabilization Group left.
