Friedman vs. Friedman

Swopa gives us some fun stuff:

Tom Friedman, August 24, 2003:

... this war is about Western powers, helped by the U.N., coming into the heart of their world to promote more decent, open, tolerant, women-friendly, pluralistic governments by starting with Iraq ...

Tom Friedman, June 4, 2003:

The "real reason" for this war, which was never stated, was that after 9/11 America needed to hit someone in the Arab-Muslim world.

And I seem to remember back in March he told us it was to save the poor little bunnies from the invading forces from Zarquon. Or something.
