IMMINENT THREATS: THE DEBATE
“It is a complete fabrication that the Bush administration argued in the runup to the war that there was an imminent threat from Iraq.”
Sebastian Holsclaw argues in the affirmative. Jonathan Schwarz takes the negative. Both do a creditable job researching the pre-war commentary and marshalling the arguments. I’ll let you judge the debate for yourself, but I suspect the “winner” will be the one you already agree with.
Update (1057): Daniel Davies parses the grammar over at Crooked Timber. There is also an amusing mini-debate over whether PhD’s should be referred to as “doctor” going on in the update/comments thread.
