On March 1st, 2003, on the prospect of a sectarian conflict arising out of the US invasion of Iraq, Bill Kristol had this to say:
"Very few wars in American history were prepared better or more thoroughly than this one by this president."Yeah. Just one of the now famous quotes by one of the American bouquet of neo-cons who were completely wrong about everything on the Bush/Cheney invasion of Iraq.
On Sunday, July 15th, 2007, Kristol wrote this in the Washington Post:
I suppose I'll merely expose myself to harmless ridicule if I make the following assertion: George W. Bush's presidency will probably be a successful one.Ya think?!
Kristol went on to further embarrass the Washington Post by writing a complete op-ed piece so full of lies and fantasy that one would be hard pressed to relate any real event to any of the points he tried to make.
Luckily the Washington Post saw fit to allow David Corn an opportunity to lay out the facts associated with Kristol's BS. And David Corn tore Kristol a new asshole.
The Washington Post would suffer no loss if they refused to give Kristol space in the op-ed pages. He has become irrelevant. Although his predictions are occasionally useful. As incorrect as they are, knowing that there will be a completely contrary result could become a practical tool for planning.
