No, and we are suffering from the result of Dick Cheney pulling Bush's strings.<quoted text>Yep, McNamara and the rest of the "Best & Brightest".Eastern upper class intellectuals, with degrees from Yale and Harvard, who were convinced that they, through their superior intellect and superior education, knew oh so much more about everything than the people who'd actually done it. Hmmmm...doesn't that sound kind of like a current regime we're all suffering through?:)
President Obama is still repairing the economic damage done by the incompetant GOP Lying neo-conservatives.
It does, however, sound very much like Cheney-Bush starting their adventurist war in Iraq, which has and had no basis in our national self interest.
The ""Best & Brightest".Eastern upper class intellectuals" you site at least (misguidedly) thought they were effecting a foreign policy, following the Kennan-Bohlen containment policies.
The GOP Lying neo-conservatives brought us to war in Iraq in order to increase the world prrice of oil; for profit. They abandoned the cause of 'making the 9/11/01 terrorists pay' by allowing Bin Laden and his staff to escape at Tora Bora; and abandoning Afghanistan for their war of private profit in Iraq.
