Conservative Mag: Conservatives calling for Condi's head, saying she's incompetent

HuffPo has the link to a story in Insight magazine (sibling of Washington Times) about the conservative revolt against Condi: "Conservative national security allies of President Bush are in revolt against Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, saying that she is incompetent and has reversed the administration’s national security and foreign policy agenda.

The conservatives, who include Newt Gingrich, Richard Perle and leading current and former members of the Pentagon and National Security Council, have urged the president to transfer Miss Rice out of the State Department and to an advisory role. They said Miss Rice, stemming from her lack of understanding of the Middle East, has misled the president on Iran and the Arab-Israeli conflict.

'The president has yet to understand that people make policy and not the other way around,' a senior national security policy analyst said. 'Unlike [former Secretary of State Colin] Powell, Condi is loyal to the president. She is just incompetent on most foreign policy issues.' "
