Krugman's Got Game A characteristically excellent column from Paul Krugman today. He discusses the attempts by the Bush administration to rewrite the history of the Iraq war inlight of recent embarrassments regarding the lack of WMD's. Here's a sample:
Let's start with the case of the missing W.M.D. Do you remember when the C.I.A. was reviled by hawks because its analysts were reluctant to present a sufficiently alarming picture of the Iraqi threat? Your memories are no longer operative. On or about last Saturday, history was revised: see, it's the C.I.A.'s fault that the threat was overstated. Given its warnings, the administration had no choice but to invade.
