Political Advisor Richard Perle was quoted in the January 2007 issue of Vanity Fair: ” ‘Huge mistakes were made [in Iraq], and I want to be very clear on this: They were not made by neoconservatives, who had almost no voice in what happened after the downfall of the regime in Baghdad. I’m getting damn tired of being described as an architect of the war. I was in favor of bringing down Saddam. Nobody said, *Go design the campaign to do that.* I had no responsibility for that.’ “ [The 15th of the month used for date sorting purposes only.]
