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’┬ásake!),┬áMichael 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.
