Bill Buckley, Unpatriotic Conservative
Anyway, in a farewell interview with the NY Times, Buckley let this one slip:
"With the benefit of minute hindsight, Saddam Hussein wasn't the kind of extra-territorial menace that was assumed by the administration one year ago. If I knew then what I know now about what kind of situation we would be in, I would have opposed the war."
Gee, thanks Bill. You're only 18 months late with that cogent analysis! Perhaps David Frum will now issue apologies to Pat Buchanan, Bob Novak, Tom Fleming, Joe Sobran, Lew Rockwell, Justin Raimondo, and other old right stalwarts that he slandered in an NR cover story as "Unpatriotic Conservatives" beacuse of their opposition to Bush's silliness. Probably not.
