Finally, an apology about the tragitastrobacle in Iraq.

billmon nails it @ DailyKos.
Mea Culpa

Now that we’ve reached the 10th anniversary of the Iraq invasion, it seems only fit and proper that those of us who opposed the war from the very beginning explain how our errors in judgment led us to be so catastrophically wrong about America’s signature foreign policy achievement of the 21st century.

In particular, I think we should extend a heartfelt apology to the war’s supporters (not least, the many fine pundits at our nation’s leading opinion journals) for the pain and suffering we inflicted with our frequent attacks on their intelligence, humanity, and sanity—and, at times, I’m ashamed to admit, even their patriotism.

There is no question that America’s foreign policy and media elites are the real victims here. Surely no one can deny this . . . [There's more.]
