Shattering Illusions

The Iraq War is a wake-up call for two conservative bloggers.

by James Leroy Wilson
August 2, 2007

Two popular bloggers and self-described conservatives, Andrew Sullivan and Rod Dreher, recently repented of their support of the Iraq War. Sullivan writes:

One of my own errors before the war was a function of being steeped in Washington policy debates - and neo-conservative arguments - for years. I had been so conditioned to suspect Iraq after 9/11 that my skepticism deserted me. I mentioned Saddam on September 12. The result was that the prelude to the Iraq war was far too easily framed by the information and biases of the Beltway elite, the Pentagon establishment, and the neocon brain-trust. Worse, we were unspeakably condescending to those on the outside who were right. We trusted far too much, and people much further away from the levers of power saw more clearly than we did.-->-->-->-->-->--> Read more-->-->-->

This is one of the most insightful, realistic, and honest posts I have ever read. You have a very high level of understanding on this matter.
