McNamara Passes

Robert McNamara (former Secretary of Defense, anti-nuke activist) died today. If you haven’t already  seen Errol Morris’s The Fog of War: Eleven Lessons from the Life of Robert S. McNamara, you should. It is a fascinating study of governmental decision making. See especially the sections dealing with Vietnam and the Cuban Missile Crisis.

    For better or worse (and there was plenty of both) we are not likely to see someone whose life was so committed to public service and then reflection about it all. A fascinating, deplorable, admirable life.
