You Fucked Up, You Trusted Us


Julian Sanchez’s response to Max Boot’s “eh, everyone thought the Iraq War was a great idea, what are you gonna do?” attempt at self-exoneration is priceless:

I do think the “hey, it’s not our fault, we were fed a lot of lies” excuse doesn’t fly for public officials who didn’t initiate and weren’t particularly enthusiastic about the war but went along, particularly after the ridiculous Powell presentation to the UN made it clear how weak the case that Saddam posed any kind of threat to the United States was. But the idea that “this war, like pretty much all wars, was initially popular” lets its architects and biggest backers off the hook is deeply silly.
