The Weekly Standard: Incorrigible

I have to say that it's really difficult for me to believe that The Weekly Standard has re-published the sophistical essay "Why We Went to War" by William Kristol and Robert Kagan on its front page. I've already discussed this essay at some length in "Not Why We Went to War." In their inaptly-titled article, Kristol and Kagan discuss some reasons why a nation might have gone to war against Iraq, but they give no evidence whatsoever that these were the Bush administration's reasons for going to war. In fact, the reasons they cite seem rather clearly not to have been the administration's reasons. I would have thought that Kristol, Kagan, and The Standard would have wanted to forget about this stinker... But there it is again, right on the front page...
