What Others Are Saying

October 19, 2007

My own sense - and, of course, I do not know for sure - is that the decision to bomb Iran under this president has already been made. It has been made by President Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney. It was probably made months ago. Nothing - no facts, no arguments, and certainly no democratic or constitutional processes - will be allowed to come in the way of this. The public arguments are just an attempt to provide some rationale for what will happen, and are interesting solely as a means to detect what is actually going on behind the scenes. We have no role here. There was one accountability moment, remember, which was November 2004.
