What the War is About — At Least Now

Filed under: War — Patterico @ 9:28 pm



Playing catch-up with my blog reading from the past week, I find another item linked by Cori Dauber: a Washington Post editorial that reports something Cori correctly thinks should have been on the news pages:

“The judicial court of the Organization of al Qaeda in Iraq has ruled that it is a duty to uphold God’s law and kill those who have declared themselves God’s partners in drafting this constitution.”

— Abu Musab Zarqawi

As the Post said:

Had al Qaeda set out to prove to a growing number of doubters that the war in Iraq really is about democracy — and not about oil, hubris or imperialism — its leaders couldn’t have done so more clearly.

Yup.

One Response to “What the War is About — At Least Now”

  1. I’m not sure if anything that anyone says does much to change many opinions on this. I think/hope I would listen if I had evidence that President Bush lead us into war with purposefully false info or rationale, but I haven’t seen it, and I don’t know anyone who was against the war from the start who has changed their mind.
