the mask has cracked:
Mel Goodman debated David Wurmser and wrote it up for Larry Johnson's blog. According to Goodman, Wurmser came up with a new post-facto justification for the war:
Instead, Wurmser argued that the Bush administration believed there were significant geopolitical reasons for going to war and offered a fanciful explanation that broke totally new ground. Wurmser said that Cheney, Feith, and Bolton were convinced that U.S. containment of Saddam Hussein was failing and that the controls to keeping Saddam Hussein from expanding his regional influence were “dying.” As a result, the Iraqi leader was in position to exploit the rising anti-Americanism in the region and to “break out” from the sanctions strategy and the no-fly zones to lead a “rogue coalition of nations to expel the United States from the region” and even “to wage war against the United States.”That'll work. David Wurmser's reputation is looking better by the minute!
The appalling thing is that that has the ring of truth--in the sense that the players named really did think that.
