On September 11, 2001, “By 1:15 p.m., just four hours after the attacks, Michael Ledeen, the neocon operative who had won notoriety in the Iran-contra scandal, filed a dispatch on the National Review‘s website attacking the remaining realists in the [Bush] administration and urging someone to remind Bush that ‘we are still living with the consequences of Desert Shame, when his father [George H.W. Bush] and his father’s advisers–most notably Colin Powell and Brent Scowcroft–advised against finishing the job and liberating Iraq.’ ”
