Were celebrating reflections this week. Reflections about the Iraq War. Reflections about what weve learned. What we got right. . . what we got wrong. . . what we got half-right and half-wrong.
This week, we reflect. And learn. We step outside the mirror and look in — at ourselves. For we are the ultimate mirrors.
Heres a quote from Richard Perles “Reflection” in the Times:
Saddam Hussein forced the question: Should we leave him in place and hope for the best, or destroy his regime in a lightning strike and thereby end the risk that he might collaborate with terrorists to enable an attack even more devastating than 9/11?(My emphasis, because the thought is so terrifying!)
Ah, reflections. . .
