Trying for accountability

Peggy Noonan has an interesting piece in the WSJ, contrasting the way the Marines handled the plane crash near Miramar in December -- complete investigation, identifying mistakes, naming names, suspending or firing people responsible, doing it in public -- and contrasting it with the financiual crisis, where pretty much nobody took anything resembling personal responsibility.

If you want to know who really was responsible, however, I would recommend reading Thomas E. Woods' new book, "Meltdown." I'll link to the review I did for the Register when they put it up.
