: "Back in August 2002, Newsweek hawk Fareed Zakaria argued: 'Done right, an invasion would be the single best path to reform the Arab world. Were Saddam's totalitarian regime to be replaced by a state that respected human rights, enforced the rule of law and created a market economy, it could begin to transform that world.' And if done right, tax cuts could have stimulated the economy. But Bush hadn't done anything right when Zakaria wrote that. The Administration's brazenly dishonest and inept post-9/11 record--not the right's fictional knee-jerk 'Bush-bashing'--is why half the country never trusted his blandishments about WMDs, the fictional Saddam-Osama link, or nation-building.
Ah, but the new and improved Zakaria finally gets it: 'On almost every issue involving postwar Iraq, [Bush's] assumptions and policies have been wrong. This strange combination of arrogance and incompetence has not only destroyed the hopes for a new Iraq. It has had the much broader effect of turning the United States into an international outlaw.'
We're supposed to be grateful that Zakaria and his fellow war pimps are--finally!--recognizing reality. At least they're better than Bush, who still thinks torture can convert the Iraqis to democracy: 'I won't yield,' he said May 13. But these prominent pundits too have blood on their hands"
