We appear to be hiring a prime minister

"The White House wants to appoint a high-powered czar to oversee the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan with authority to issue directions to the Pentagon, the State Department and other agencies, but it has had trouble finding anyone able and willing to take the job, according to people close to the situation."

    -- Washington Post, April 11, 2007

Huh? Isn't that the president's job? Issuing directions to the State Department, the Pentagon and other agencies?

Am I the only person who finds that bizarre, both politically and Constitutionally?

(Off to write now, in any case.)
