In Retrospect


Peter Feaver has a fascinating article in The Weekly Standard arguing that to win in November, John McCain needs to grab the bull by the horns and make the case on the merits that invading Iraq was the right thing to do. Feaver goes on to say various things I disagree with (from arguing that the case can be persuasively made to calling it a "myth" that administration officials intentionally misled the public), but he's persuasive on the idea that simply bracketing the decision to launch the war won't work.
