Even Those Who Think Iraq is a Tragedy Should Resist Offering Commentary That is a Farce

Carroll Andrew Morse

In the Washington Post, John Podesta, Lawrence J. Korb and Brian Katulis make a case against the success of the American military surge in Iraq that includes this sentence (h/t Mickey Kaus)…

But the progress being made at the local level often undermines the stated goal of creating a unified, stable, democratic Iraq.
Isn't this the liberal internationalist's way of saying that we must let the villages be destroyed in order to save them?
