ABSTRACT
Focuses on the credibility of liberals in the United States who supported the Iraq War. Statement that liberal hawks were guided by two assumptions that turned out to be wrong, including that Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein was seeking nuclear weapons and that the President George W. Bush administration would take postwar nation-building seriously; Failure of Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld in providing armed forces that were capable of securing the peace in Iraq; Suggestion that antiwar liberals are overreacting to the Iraq War; Discussion of the rise of the insurgency and anti-Americanism in Iraq following the war; Claim that the U.S. inability to restore order was exacerbated by L. Paul Bremer's move to disband the Iraqi military; Importance of ending tyranny in the Middle East.
