Truth from the mouth of neo-cons?
The growing chorus of White House insiders criticizing the White House is getting to be old news as the neo-cons scramble to distance themselves from an incompetent president but this remark took me by surprise.
Richard N. Haass, a former top Bush State Department official and now president of the Council on Foreign Relations, said a radically different approach to world affairs naturally generates criticism. "The emphasis on promotion of democracy, the emphasis on regime change, the war of choice in Iraq -- all of these are departures from the traditional approach," he said, "so it's not surprising to me that it generates more reaction."The war of choice in Iraq? Anybody remember any White House mouthpiece admitting it wasn't a necessary war before this? I don't.
