In a recent interview with Der Spiegel, Robert Kagan, a leading member of John McCain’s war cabinet, dismissed wrongdoing by the Bush administration in the run-up to the Iraq war as “conspiracy theories”:
First, a few biographical notes on Mr. Kagan.
Kagan is a co-founder of the Project for the New American Century (PNAC), an organization which never conceived of and/or met a US-led war to neutralize Israel's perceived threats in the region (and that includes all its neighbors) it didn't like.
And of course, five years into the debacle which is Iraq, and the 7 year debacle which is Afghanistan, we can see precisely where these notions have left the US: financially broke, a nation whose Constitution and Bill of Rights have been eviscerated, and generally viewed internationally as a rogue state desperately needing an intervention to prevent it from yet another series of military misadventures.
I'll guarantee you one thing, however; if you have loved what Bush has done in creating all of the above, you'll be absolutely delighted with what a McCain presidency will bring to this country and the world.
