Tyler Cowen writing in the Washington Post:
The bottom line is clear, Mr. President: The more you worried about the unchecked spread of doomsday weapons, the stronger you thought the case was for war in the first place. But precisely because you had a point about the need to stop nuclear proliferation, you must now realize that the costs of a failed war are far higher than you’ve acknowledged.
Mismanagement.Unrealistic war plan. No exit strategy. Ineffective or non-existent political plan. Wrong at every turn. This from the President who was hailed as having one of the most experienced cabinets in modern American history. These filthy criminals traded short-term political gain for effective planning. Lying, treacherous bastards–each and everyone of them.
