ABSTRACT
The article reflects on the remarks of Richard Perle, chairman of the U.S. Defense Policy Board from 2001 to 2003, about the Iraq War. It claims that Perle's denial that he has any influence on the war has veered from brazen to hysterical. It also argues that Perle's remarks indicate that he still thinks that the war is a good idea and his statement that democratization was not a goal in Iraq that speaks of bureaucracies content with favored dictatorships.
