Odds and Ends – Iraq edition

  • Check out Thomas Powers’ excellent article, The Vanishing Case For War in the New York Review of Books.
  • Something that struck me on Thanksgiving. Will Dubya’s trip to Baghdad be viewed as a daring gesture by the C-in-C to the troops, an expensive political ploy to bolster his poll numbers (especially since Hillary Clinton was hitting both Afghanistan and Iraq) or a turkey who was so chickenshit he had to sneak in the back door? So far it looks like the first option is leading the pack.
  • The Detroit News has an ongoing series on the impact the war on terror is having on the Bill of Rights. (Via Behind The Homefront)
