I am a daily reader (and now subscriber) to Andrew Sullivan’s The Dish blog and I quote him often. He has quoted me from time to time as well. Some of my readers have suggested that Sullivan is, for some reason, beyond the pale and should not be taken seriously. This post, however, shows why I think he absolutely should.
This month, the tenth anniversary of the beginning of the Iraq War, I’ve decided to re-publish some of my posts from March 2003. Call it masochism or basic journalistic accountability or the Internet’s revenge. But I was wrong. I was wrong in good faith. But I was wrong. And it’s worth, ten years’ later, to show just how wrong I was in order to understand better my massive error of judgment (let alone of tone).
