Mark Danner on the Iraq War

If you can stomach an account of what went wrong in Iraq you are unlikely to do better than Danner's review of three books chronicling the conception, planning and execution of the war. I supported going to war, without ever using the crutch of WMD, and my ideological starting point is clearly deeply conservative. However, I am feeling increasingly confirmed in my view that, regardless of the many flaws of the Democrats, the Republican administration has been such a disaster they needed to be punished at the congressional elections and that this will go down in history as one of the most disastrous US administrations.
