This chain of command chart of the Bush2 White House was originally drawn during the bizarre run-up and confused aftermath to the Iraq War, when the news was full of shadowy characters and sinister warnings leading to stupid decisions and fuckups and a surge in the re-use of the word Quagmire. Quagmires are often the result of Neat Ideas and departments that produce them. I drew the original black and white diagram for the New Yorker in 2003. They didn’t use it, but asked me to paint it into a cover at the time Scooter Libby was about to be pardoned. They didn’t use the cover either, but a few people were highly amused by it. I posted it to my blog when Bush2 was swanking around with his memoir.
