Steve Clemons says there's a power struggle going on within the Bush administration over policy toward Iran. Money quote:
Cheney himself is frustrated with President Bush and believes, much like Richard Perle, that Bush is making a disastrous mistake by aligning himself with the policy course that Condoleezza Rice, Bob Gates, Michael Hayden and McConnell have sculpted.
According to this official, Cheney believes that Bush can not be counted on to make the "right decision" when it comes to dealing with Iran and thus Cheney believes that he must tie the President's hands.
This is some really scary stuff. Bush is clueless and Cheney is ruthless...
