Nine are dead after a gunfight broke out in a busy restaurant in Waco, Texas.
You’ll be glad to know that, twelve years too late, even most Republican presidential candidates agree the Iraq War was a mistake.
Politicians hoping to be president rarely run ahead of public opinion. So it’s a revealing moment when the major contenders for president in both parties find it best to say that 4,491 Americans and countless Iraqis lost their lives in a war that shouldn’t have been waged.
Even Mo Dowd has seen the light.
It is simply not true, as Republican presidential aspirant Scott Walker said on Friday, that â€œany president would have likely taken the same action Bush did with the information he had.â€
Thatâ€™s not giving enough credit to W. and his frothing band of Reservoir Dogs.
It took a Herculean effort of imagination, manipulation and deception to concoct â€œthe informationâ€ that propelled the invasion, occupation and destruction of a country that had nothing to do with 9/11.
And tell us what you wrote back then to clarify matters, Mo. I’m having a hard time remembering.
