The Biggest Stupid Idea

That's how David Kilcullen, an advisor to Condoleezza Rice, describes the decision to invade Iraq.

If I were ever to write a book on the subject, that's what I'd title it: The Biggest Stupid Idea.

And, as I've said before: McCain might want to haggle over who was right about the surge, but, however that comes out, there's no doubt who was right about the vastly more important question: who was right about the invasion, the thing without which there would be no need for the surge?

Who was it who thought that the biggest stupid idea was just dandy...and who was it that saw it for what it was?
