Ken Adelman - Factually Wrong Neocon...Just As They All Are


"Adelman's hypocrisy is stunning. In 2002 it was he who famously predicted that American forces would enjoy “a cakewalk” in Iraq, and during the run-up to the invasion he derided war critics for their stupidity and naiveté. “There's always the chicken littles, running around and saying 'oh my God, it's terrible,'” he said on Hardball, six days before the war began, when asked about the possibility that things might not go as smoothly as he and his fellow-hawks had predicted.

The following month, he was gloating to the New York Times that his “cakewalk” prediction had been remarkably prescient. Adelman, according to the story, “scorned recent complaints by retired generals and military analysts that the Pentagon had deployed too few troops” to Iraq. “I always thought that was ridiculous,” Adelman told the newspaper. “It turned out they were factually wrong. I never understood what having three times as many troops would have done.”

I guess this "creating your own reality" stuff didn't work out to well for them.

That's ok they are all washing their hands of the lies and blood and walking away.

This guy named Scott Ritter was right though. I wonder why they are not interviewing him on tv?

Thanks to Talking Points Memo for the tip.
