      I just read his response to Jonathan. The wonkish concern with giving colleagues an accommodating hedge on every point of the compass makes people like that useless for any policy "debate". There's never a point at which they're constrained to touch ground. Epistemic relativism on the career level only needs to account for the beliefs of the moment, which only need to be plausible within a small circle.

      I liked your comment there. Replication of that kind is disgusting.

      Outside his "duh, wha?" routine everything else he offers has been thoroughly rubbished so many times (semantics! he cries with no supporting dispute, why didn't he come clean about that fact before 2002? Why did he continue to mislead the UN?, with no supporting dirty misleading quote) that one can only assume it's just the molting stage.

      Personally I like how he conflates relieving sanctions and the get-out-of-Baghdad-free-card. He's already learning how to invent, or really borrow, needless restraints on policy formula at a whim to justify a demolished argument. Very unpromising.
