It Was The Stupidest Of Times

Um, you first?
Back on on March 14, 2003, the Times interviewed several liberal academics/experts who backed the war. Of course, there's Kenneth Pollack, but also Paul Berman, Michael Ignatieff and, surprise, Elie Wiesel, the great writer on the Holocaust. Berman: "It's something of a scandal in my eyes that hundreds of thousands of people are not marching in support of the oppressed Iraqis."

Hundreds of thousands are dead. Bygones, Paul.
