"Invading Iraq was not in the interests of the United States," Odom writes. "It was in the interests of Iran and al Qaeda."
Kudos to the brave editors for publishing such heresy.
Of course, Odom first made this case--in the summer 2004 issue of The National Interest. Back then, it wasn't quite the popular position to take. Of course, in summer 2006--this is now much more of a "mainstream" position.
Odom, of course, has displayed remarkable consistency on this issue. No "mea culpas" three years after the fact.
The degree to which people such as him are ignored by US Government is indicative of the effective of the policies that are pursued now.
