“Jim’s at his quotable best”:http://www.highclearing.com/archivesuo/week_2004_01_04.html#004887. Again. This time on Iraq & WMD:
Saddam really was evil. And we really did get him. The costs of that deed include not just the dead and the maimed on our side, and the dead and the maimed on theirs, and the couple hundred billions of dollars from buildup through reconstruction. The costs include the Administration’s decision to motivate the American people by fear, to perpetrate an official farce (inspections) and to be less truthful about factual matters than one of the most tyrannical governments on earth.
Yes, it was too much to pay, and to continue to pay.
