For a brief, but compelling, chronological account of how we got where we are in the war on terror in general and Iraq in particular, I recommend the Special Editorial from the October 20, 2003 issue of The Weekly Standard. Anyone with an ounce of intellectual honesty cannot dispute the obvious strategic conclusions from the chronology of events and the facts outlined here. Certainly, the Clintons can’t, which is why both of them have been conspicuously silent and absent from the avalanche of demagoguery on the war coming from their party’s Presidential candidates. But that is the real issue here, isn’t it? Where is the intellectual honesty of the “peace party”? We’ll almost certainly find Osama as well as Saddam and his WMDs long before we find that rare commodity.
