Iraq

Lest we forget

Here’s a reminder of why some of us supported the invasion of Iraq and the overthrow of Saddam Hussein in 2003. (Hint: It had little to do with alleged weapons of mass destruction and nothing to do with oil.)

What was (and remains) unforgivable, and borders on criminal, was the utter failure to deal competently with the situation on the ground in the immediate aftermath of Saddam’s ouster. For that George W. Bush must shoulder most of the blame, but Tony Blair must take his share too.

Sorry, Owen. No groveling.
