I suppose it's better Paul R. Pillar remained in his position between 2003 and 2005 lest somebody really incompetent and impotent take it over... Is this some sort of joke? Mr. Pillar explains the real rationale for the war with some frothy, warmed over PR about how this reactionary fundamentalist - who regularly exhorts the homophobic cowards who voted for him that dictatorial, unchecked executive powers are necessary to keep them all safe in their cribs at night, and nevermind that he's overthrown a couple liberal, democratic governments while in office - was all about spreading liberal, democratic ideals. Finally I understand! Unless you're part of a conspiracy to mislead the public about American foreign policy you can't write for Foreign Affairs.
