On Iraq, Short Memories 

A great summary on how the history of the leadup to the Iraq war is being rewritten by those too weak to put some resolve behind what they so long argued. The article says that most people in the political classes, including the Clinton administration, favored war to remove Saddam. But now, they seem to be recalling their past opinions a bit differently.

This article is also great because it quotes Pericles' Funeral Oration from Thucydides:
I am the same man and do not alter, it is you who change, since in fact you took my advice while unhurt, and waited for misfortune to repent of it.

And yet not a word about the gross distortions coming from the Bush administration beginning on September 12 2001 and continuing to this day. Seems like we are all capable of revisionist history.
Examples? Or, maybe not....
