The Columbia Critic

A place to debate anything we want to. We'll talk Columbia campus issues. We'll talk up the homosexual problem. We'll talk China. And we'll talk without resorting to partisan rhetoric. We may be left. We may be right. But we aren't going to be quoting any party line. We're leading the discussion. But feel free to chime in. Hannity and Colmes this is not.

Saddam's Internal Troubles

A NYTimes look at a classified military report (soon to be published broadly) finds that, among other things, Saddam was more worried about Shiites than Americans, didn't tell his generals until the last minute that there were no weapons of mass destruction held in reserve, and micro-managed war efforts.

Who would have thought, months ago, that a picture so completely damning for the Bush administration would become a reality? The sad thing is that we seem to have lost our anger after this long, as we instead contemplate depressing questions regarding the possibilities for Iraqi civil war. Even while we deal with Iraq today, let's not shove under the rug the issues that took us there in the first place.
