National Catholic Reporter;12/22/2006, Vol. 43 Issue 9, p16
The article discusses the implication of the war in Iraq for the society. The simplistic fantasies of exporting Iraq's version of democracy has come to nothing and the neocon intellectuals are rejecting U.S. President George W. Bush's team for mission unaccomplished. Kenneth Adelman, the former director of the U.S. Arms Control and Disarmament Agency under Ronald Reagan, viewed the war as a bearer of misery for millions of Iraqis and for American soldiers killed or wounded.
