The Gods of Ignorance

Even in Vientiane, Laos where I am now it is possible to tie into the Internet and see what is happening around the world, courtesy of those who pursue objective truth and apply it at high levels if conception and execution — unlike most of our American political class, as Paul Krugman reminds us

“”We’re just a few weeks away from a milestone I suspect most of Washington would like to forget: the start of the Iraq war. What I remember from that time is the utter impenetrability of the elite prowar consensus. If you tried to point out that the Bush administration was obviously cooking up a bogus case for war, one that didn’t bear even casual scrutiny; if you pointed out that the risks and likely costs of war were huge; well, you were dismissed as ignorant and irresponsible.”
