Quote of the Day: Bill Kristol is Horrendously Wrong About Iraq Again

Bill Kristol calls for American troops to return to Iraq, clearly because it wasn't a huge enough blunder the first time he convinced the White House to do it.

"This would require a willingness to send American forces back to Iraq. It would mean not merely conducting U.S. air strikes, but also accompanying those strikes with special operators, and perhaps regular U.S. military units, on the ground." Bill Kristol, The Weekly Standard

Well that settles it. Whatever Bill Kristol, a key architect of the Iraq War, says about the current situation there, the U.S. must do exactly the opposite. Kristol has been wrong about literally everything -- most of all, Iraq.

I'd give him credit for tenacity if he wasn't so tenaciously clinging to an idea that led to one of the most horrifying foreign policy blunders in modern history.
