Bush Was Right [continued]

Well, whaddaya know! Guess who has belatedly discovered that Bush was right about Iraq? The editors of Newsweek, that's who!

This week's issue features a story, "Rebirth of a Nation", that admits that Iraq is finally on the road toward becoming the region's first functioning democratic Islamic state. To be sure, this is Newsweek so they have to get in a few shots at Bush and judge the outcome in Iraq to be a "Dark Victory" but, however grudging and hedged about with qualifiers, this article is (like the Obama administration's continuation of Bush-era policies and judgments) a striking major admission of the rightness of Bush's approach to Iraq.
