Simply Stunning: Leading Neocon Architects for War Now Part With Bush Over It.

By their over-reaching proposals, they brought us to this point in Iraq and now leading Neo-cons rip President Bush and Donald Rumsfeld on the current mess. As if unable or unwilling to have thought proactively before they unleashed thier wrongful agenda, now they see things differently. CNN reported the stunner (first appearing in Vanity Fair):

"Richard Perle, who chaired a committee of Pentagon policy advisers early in the Bush administration, said had he seen at the start of the war in 2003 where it would go, he probably would not have advocated an invasion to depose Saddam Hussein. Perle was an assistant secretary of defense under President Reagan."

Read about it here.

CNN goes on to report that Kenneth Adelman, "who also served on the Defense Policy Board that informally advised President Bush," said he was "crushed" by the performance of Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld.”
They have given us terrible ideas, worse execution of those ideas, and, now, when everything is collapsing around them, they finally see a bit of light. They have a lot to atone for. But I'll say this: They did come clean, to a point. Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld, however, are another matter.
They still go around bashing Democrats and (outrageously) suggesting a vote for Dems is a vote for the terrorists. I think its abundantly clear just who has made the risk of terrorism worse. (Hint: The Dems are not in charge.)
