WAR WITH IRAQ….Josh Marshall finally

WAR WITH IRAQ….Josh Marshall finally has Part 2 of his interview with Ken Pollack posted, and it’s a good read. Like Josh, I think that Pollack’s comments do a good job of capturing “the mix of resolution, ambivalence and anger I feel about the situation we’re currently in with Iraq.” As much as I’m unhappy about how the Bush administration has mishandled everything, backing out now could have disastrous consequences. And so we liberal hawks hold our noses and hope for the best.

It’s a good interview ? although I wish there had been time for the obvious follow-up to the question about what things the administration has handled well. Go read it.
