So So So So Wrong

1 year ago, Richard Perle, one of the neo-con architects of the war in Iraq that Bush trusts so dearly, said this in an address at the American Enterprise Institute.

And a year from now, I'll be very surprised if there is not some grand square in Baghdad that is named after President Bush. There is no doubt that, with the exception of a very small number of people close to a vicious regime, the people of Iraq have been liberated and they understand that they've been liberated. And it is getting easier every day for Iraqis to express that sense of liberation.
Again, note the date. September 22, 2003. This is the sort of pie in the sky rosy projection that the Bush team has constantly fed us about this war from the beginning. If nothing else, they should be held accountable for being wrong about something so grave as war. Yes things go wrong in war. Yes, war is not pleasant. But more than a 1,000 people have died as a result of their bad judgment. Seems to me that's worse than lying or purposely misleading us. Just being wrong has had tragic consequences. How can this country let these guys be wrong for 4 more years?
