Headline of the Day
Dana Milbank wins with: “Iraq War Is Everyone Else’s Fault, Feith Explains.”
I haven’t read Feith’s book but that’s pretty much the thesis I’ve gathered from the interviews he’s given about it. Given the superlatives that have been used to describe his lack of intelligence, it’s hardly unexpected that he would try to salvage his reputation. And he’s probably got a point: we tend to place too much blame on a handful of people whose names we know. But the natural vanity of these books is to place all the blame for bad things on others, take too much credit for the good things, and — especially — how much better it would have all turned out if only they’d listened to my advice!
