Amazing, just totally amazing. Atrios links to a press release and article in Vanity Fair in which key neocon architects of the Iraq war such as the disgraced Ken Edelman absolve themselves of any blame for what they now seem to admit is a disasterous foreign policy failure. Well, that's not quite accurate. They blame themselves for not realizing how incompetently the Bush administration would be on the execution side of the equation.
Ah, there it is, the tried-and-true incompetence dodge, this time not from the likes of liberal hawks or idiot National Review pundits like Jonah Goldberg but by the architects themselves!
How incredibly convenient for them (but not the American or Iraqi people).
Update: As Think Progress points out, these lunatics are now complaining about the VF press release, not because it is factually incorrect but rather because it was published at a politically inopportune time.
