If it weren't for neocon hackery like his, we wouldn't have forced the center of the war on terror 2000 miles CLOSER to the United States and we wouldn't have triggered the explosion of a "centuries in waiting" civil war. Afghanistan is a just and necessary war. Iraq has been all about choice...bad choice.
This joker has been proven wrong in his assessments, assertions and predictions over and over and over again. Yet somehow the WaPo editorial page keeps publishing and publishing and publishing his cr... uh... excuse me... his opinions. Is Washington Post now an arm of the Faux News Channel?
