“On July 30, 2001, former CIA officer and neoconservative author Reuel Marc Gerecht denounced the Bush administration’s Iraq policy in the influential neoconservative journal the Weekly Standard. In an essay entitled ‘The Cowering Superpower,’ Gerecht declared, ‘From the spring of 1996, the Clinton Administration’s Iraq policy was in meltdown; under the Bush administration, it has completely liquefied. …It would be better to see the Administration start explaining how we will live with Saddam and his nuclear weapons than to see senior Bush officials, in the manner of the Clintonites, fib to themselves and the public.’ ”
