self-licking ice-cream cone
 n.— «However disappointing Colin Powell’s knee-jerk saluting of the commander-in-chief, at least Powell had been around and knew something of the world. (Rumsfeld, of course, is good riddance.) But what you now have around the president is what we call, in intelligence parlance, a self-licking ice-cream cone.» —“Why the Iraq Study Group Won’t Get Us Out of Iraq” by Ray McGovern Counterpunch Nov. 14, 2006.
