Tony Blair conceded last night that the invasion of Iraq by the United States and Britain had been a “disaster”. ~The Daily Telegraph
Upon hearing the news of Tony Blair’s apparent loss of “moral clarity” (he gave an interview on Al Jazeera English, for goodness’ sake!), Michael Ledeen was very likely heard to have said, “Yes, but it is a creative disaster!”
Incidentally, I think I understand the phrase “moral clarity” as it is used by its adherents: it means that you would be able to continue to believe something to be obviously, umabiguously right at the same time that you admit that it has been a complete and total disaster.
